STARGAZER replied to matthewh's topic in Immigration and Visa IssuesNow now Spicey.....can you please tell me what country has more legal immigrants than any other country, ie, meaning more people seek to move there than any other country in the world. I will give you a hint, take the second and third most countries add them together and it is still less than #1. Can you tell me which country has the most visitors of any country in the world, ie meaning more people want to go visit this country more than any other country in the world. America is not for everybody, but FACT is more people who were not born in American want to move to America to start a new life, or visit America on a holiday than any other country on the face of the earth. Truth hurts! I know. France was an empire centuries ago. Exception of being a haven for terrorist, it is irrelevant outside its borders in 2017 and will become less relevant with each and every passing year, pretty much like it has for the past 300 plus....I mean even your wine industry.....fricking even Italy kicks the crap out of France now, never mind America and Australia. And take away the American lineage from your vineyards you wouldn't even have French wine. Just sayin............ok, back to fake news!
Comparing Soi 11 to Soi 41 is like comparing the white ghetto to one of nicest hoods in Asia. Also you can get to Cowboy from 41 faster than Soi 11, and if you are deep on Soi 11 you could get to Nana faster as well.... Mike I need to give you a new tour next time you are here.....
That is a great location if priority is not being within walking distance of the neon tan bars of Nana, Cowboy, or Patpong. Tons of great non p4p places in the /Phrom Phong/Thonglor/Ekamai area which this is at.....also just a few minute walk to Phrom Phong BTS so you are right there art EMPORIUM and EMQUARTIER shopping zones and Phrom Phong BTS....1 stop to cowboy, 2 stops to nana, 5 stops a transfer and 2 stops to Patpong.....Patpong being the furthest away and less than 15 minutes by sky train. 10 minute walk to Soi 33, which is pretty much dead now. That said and done, the old legendary CHECK INN 99 that closed 2 years ago is now back open on Soi 33. Same filipino band that was at the old CheckIn 99 forever, same staff.....whilst I had heard of the CHECKIN99 since day I moved here 13 plus years ago, I had never been. But now its location on 33 is close to me, I like to walk, so often when walking home I go by, stop in for a night cap.....it isn't for the millineal crowd that is for sure,...almost like walking into a time warp and it is 1989 again......a great alternative spot for us gray beards to go.....I fully get now why they had been in business for over 50 years and why it was a big deal 2 or 3 years ago when they became victims of property developers.....from what the old hands tell me, the new 33 location is much better set up than the old location....if you are walking down 33 from Sukhumvit it is about 100 meters down on left hand side...can't miss it, it is also the first bar on left hand side of soi coming from Suk. Hey, great little secret that has been around for years, but just discovered....on corner of Suk and 41 there is a Topps Market....walk down 41 and there is an Alley off the right, behind Tops.....gop down that alley, about 4 doors on the left there is a Chinese Dumpling restaurant.....(they have more than dumplings).....it is awesome,....one of best family run CHinese Dumpling houses I have ever been in anywhere in Asia...a group of 4 or 5 of us do it for lunch once a week, just order mountains of food and than always try to guess how much the bill will be.....very rare you can run the bill past a 1000 baht for 4 big boys eating like pigs....supa fresh food.
Come on Spicey.......HK is the #2 Financial Capital in the world next to NYC...sorry SGP, LONDON, it is true. Not talking market cap of an idex but a center of universe kind of place where the deals happen.....EVERYTHING ABOUT THE HK exchange IS AVAILABLE IN ENGLISH.. http://www.hkexnews.hk
Please do....I always like following 4 casters versus back lookers. Yeah I wish I bought bit coin at .001 who doesn't. Would be interesting to watch your picks.....actually might not be a bad idea for a couple of threads.....everyone makes 3 picks on any stocks they like traded on one of the major exchanges, and see 6 months later who is doing better as a forecaster.
