  1. Bringing medicines to Thailand

    Thankfully the USA is showing us the way with Big Phama getting people hooked on opioids that taxes are paid on and large profits made.
  2. Bringing medicines to Thailand

    I've just got little sympathy for these idiots. Then you get right wing newspapers blaming the nasty foreigners and their evil laws. Like the idiot who thought taking six months supply of temazepam through the middle East was a good idea. Papers up in arm that temazepam are not even illegal in the country. No but carrying six months worth obviously is.
  3. Bringing medicines to Thailand

    If the pills were hidden then she was not naïve and she did know it was dodgy. Unfortunately being gullible and stupid is no defence in law.
  4. Bringing medicines to Thailand

    I'm fine bud. Just toying with the idea of going for a beer.
  5. Bringing medicines to Thailand

    Almost went over my head that one.
  6. A fitting tribute

    RIP https://twitter.com/wba/status/952891153195655168
  7. The dirty side of Man U vs Arsenal

    I'll raise you a Tommy Smith if only to get this Shankly quote in.. "Tommy Smith wasn't born, he was quarried."
  8. Life is good.

    Lovely pictures Chris. Been a while since I had a night out in the Dam but lots of good memories.
  9. Under 300 Baht ... And Good!

    Up in deepest Isaan the Barry special pizza 260 baht. It has everything bar Som tam on it and if you wanted some on it wouldn't be a problem...
  10. Life is good.

    Lovely pictures and pleased to hear you are enjoying it.
  11. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    Sounds good but if I was in Bali on Christmas day I'd definitely be having Babi Guling. I love that dish.
  12. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    First meal in had in there was jolly good but after that they never rose above meh to the point where I stopped going.
  13. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    My kids loved the prices of things in Bali and were fighting over the bills in an effort to get the highest one to show their mates at school. I think the winner was 18,000,000 for the three bedroom villa for a week which was excellent value for the location, quality and a pool right outside shared with only a couple of other villas. I remember a meal that was 2,500,000 too.
  14. Free champagne and lounge access

    If you are traveling BA short haul from 22nd to 27th of December see if you can bag seat 25D as every passenger will receive a free glass of champagne on board for Christmas. They will also get lounge access.
  15. Matt, I've read that you guy are waiting for the biometrics but I'm unsure what your wife's status will be after this. Is this her getting a British passport and an end of your problems or do you have more hoops to jump through after this?
  16. Christmas Dinner Options 2017

    We are having lamb at Barry House resort up Isaan. I'm supplying dessert which will be a medley of Christmas pudding, Cumberland Rum Nicky and mince pies served with Rum butter and ice cream. Plus Christmas cake, cheese and port. Some enterprising villager nearby has reared some Turkeys hoping to cash in with the falang and unfortunately no one is interested. So anyone who desires some fresh, and I mean fresh they are still walking around, Turkey for 160 baht per kg get in touch.
  17. Adelphi grande sukhumvit

    Anyone have any knowledge or opinions about this place on, I believe, Soi 41 Sukhumvit. Mate of mine has booked a night here in a rather nice looking executive suite for 3500 baht. This includes airport transfer which must be worth 500. Free mini bar also must be worth 500 and he'd probably use. So for 2500 in real terms it looks like a pretty good deal. Plus there's a 100 grab taxi voucher included. He's got mates in the area so he's happy about the location. All options and alternative recommendations welcome, he can cancel at no cost. I'm particularly looking at you Mr STARGAZER as I believe this is your patch.
  18. Adelphi grande sukhumvit

    I’ll tell him, looks like they are owned by the same company.
  19. Adelphi grande sukhumvit

    Lounge access sounds better than free mini bar. *takes notes*
  20. Adelphi grande sukhumvit

    Not sure it would be my choice but looks good value for money.
  21. Under 300 Baht ... And Good!

    Nice one, I’m partial to a bit of Mexican style food. Hope it survives until my next visit.
  22. What are you watching on TV

    Some good characters in GOT. Likable ones such as Arya, Tyrrion, Brienne and the Hound. And excellent ones to hate no one more than Ramsey Bolton. If there isn't a female in it that doesn't give you a bit of a twitch then I'd say you are probably in the gays.
  23. What are you watching on TV

    Right now I'm eagerly awaiting Mondays when I can stream the latest Ray Donovan. There's still no official date but Peaky Blinders is expected to begin showing season 4 next month. Also starting next month is season 5 of Vikings. Another twenty episodes but again split into two batches. Not sure what to think about there being no Ragnar but Lagethar is still there and she causes a twitch every time she appears on screen for me.
  24. Scotland New Manager

    So wee Gordon has gone. Who should be the next manager of the national team north of the wall. Obviously a taller chap but should it be Moyse, Malky, Lambert, McLeish or joint fourth in the betting Big Sam? Must admit that I've always liked Strachan for his quick wit. Anyone got a favourite quote from him. Here's one... On Wayne Rooney: "It's an incredible rise to stardom. At 17 you're more likely to get a call from Michael Jackson than Sven Goran Eriksson."
  25. The Gumbo House Cajun Restaurant in Jomtien

    Thanks for posting that. As I started to read I'm thinking cool I'll have to try that. Then I get put off. Finally when reading the second part I understand more about the cuisine and know that it's the modern version I'd be after.
