  1. The whole world has been put back several years, but in Thailand's case it is seemingly more with such a reliance on tourism. Stubbornly refusing to devalue the baht can only go on so long as they have no tools left in the toolbox unless they go for zero interest rates. Tourists don't give a shit about a country's interest rates, they focus exclusively on exchange rates. Interest rates are for locals. We can add June and all of July, plus several more months before tourists beyond any other Asian countries are allowed into their bubble. This face-saving bullshit could well end up biting them harder in the backside than is truly necessary. Wiping some smug painted smiles off a few of those high ranking faces wouldn't be such a bad thing.
  2. In my case transferring GBP from Transferwise to my Bangkok Bank account the cost shown on their website prior to sending is precisely what I pay. No hidden charges or fees, no additional charges at the Thai bank end. I've done more transfers with Transferwise than I care to remember and it is always clear and transparent. What you see is what you pay and it explains the fees and shows them, included in your cost. The funds from Transferwise are sent from a source the same as the destination, if i recall correctly. Also, when sending money to Transferwise from a UK bank account they are sent to a UK bank account, so no international fees or extra charges anywhere at either end. I believe they do similar with AU$ and USD, but not every currency. Probably Euros as well. I have been nothing but impressed with Transferwise from the moment I set up my account long ago. Their SMS to my Thai phone for secure login is always reliable and prompt, too.

    Coronavirus

    Thanks, PD. I thought it might be but wasn't sure. I stopped reading the news weeks ago. I'll nip out to 7-11 now then, not enough milk and eggs for my brekkie.

    Coronavirus

    With all this lovely 'me' time I've lost track of what's happening outside in that filthy virus-ridden real world. The important things get washed aside by copy/pasted sensationalistic news and tedious youtube videos. What are the current curfew times in Thailand? I don't like to rush anywhere.

    Coronavirus

    They (whoever 'they' are) said that subsequent waves of the virus will likely be weaker than the first as many of those exposed to the first have died, leaving less carriers of the nasty variety to share with the rest of us. Perhaps it's time to break out Kool & The Gang .. Cel-e-brate good times .. Come on!
  6. Life has returned to normal, at least for me. But it's even better than before. We now have table spacing. I had my first sit-down Sunday dinner with all the trimmings this afternoon. My first cruciferous vegetables for 6 weeks. Nicky's had been closed for well over a month and I got my last Sunday dinner prior to closure as a take-away on their last open day, Sunday, March 29th. It's been open almost a week already, but this is the first Sunday. Last week from 8am to 6pm, but since Friday it's been 8am - 8pm .. Yeehaa! p.s. closed on Tuesdays. Now that is proper news!
  7. I wrote this about Poppy 7 years ago. The sensation at Sensations Bar, back in the day. I'll let her stroke my puppy if she says that I'm her pappy I must be very fast because she's cute and barfines snappy and if she lets me buy her drink I'll be a happy chappie and if she says she'll go with me she'll make her pappy happy I sit and drink Sensations Bar but there's no sign of Poppy I came for her and no-one else I can't accept a copy I've sat too long my boner's gone it's flacid and it's floppy I'm old and fat I'm going home the girls say that I'm sloppy it's raining now I'm walking back I'm damp and feeling drippy the road is wet I nearly fell it's dangerous and slippy then on a bike I see her pass so confident and nippy she smiled at me it made my day rain glinted off her lippy I turned around I'm going back to get my taste of honey the girls see me all soaking wet and laugh and think it's funny but Poppy comes and sits with me and helps me spend my money so never mind it's raining because Poppy makes it sunny
  8. Ahh, The-Sith. I've previously had the pleasure of meeting The-Sith, perhaps he doesn't remember. It was a show night at KrUs sometime last year. I can even remember his first name, too, so he must've made an impression. Nice chap, as I recall. There was a time when I thought Rom and The-Sith were perhaps one and the same, but that was a long while ago. Despite what Rom may think, especially if he remembers my one-time post on a thread of his over on the other forum some years ago, I have no problem with either the man or his club here. In fact, Rom's sketches are incredibly good. I just wish there were more of them. The-Sith is much younger than me, quite handsome, and friendly and sociable to boot. Rather like myself 15 to 20 years ago. Now I'm just a no nonsense grumpy old phart with a pot. So I'll step back and clear the way for you young'uns to carry on. As you were
  9. Yes, the art of suggestion and subtle persuasion is delightful, especially when the subject doesn't even realise it has happened It is pleasing when a needed change comes to fruition and in this case this forum can now be cleansed by using a carefully curated 'Recent Activity' set which Admin kindly created for those not needing to live through others or requiring a daily dose of inane youtube guff. I'm sure Admin won't mind me sharing for the benefit of fellow forum users, so here it is; http://www.ladyboyreview.com/index.php?/discover/51/ This is now my much improved new forum normal
  10. As another prolific forum poster acquires further abilities in the copy/paste/regurgitate department I can only hope these 'skills' are put to good use. As per the well thought out title of this thread, there's yet another 'state of emergency' again tonight at midnight, as there has been on the strike of midnight every night since 25th March. According to, at least at the time, the novice copy/paster/regurgitator's thread topic title. Bear in mind the high level of competition that already exists, albeit negligible in ability, where you can find a ".. carefully curated selection of Videos" provided by the resident automaton who blindly copy/pastes and relentlessly regurgitates the contents of his youtube subscriptions for our daily delectation and endless enjoyment. I'm so excited to learn what the future holds and what may become the new forum normal
  11. I'd say it is even higher than that. The impact of unregistered and unrecognised tourism and leisure related activities for tourists goes well beyond any statistics Thailand, or anyone else, is able to offer. During this mandaory lockdown and closure of borders may reveal what is closer to the reality. The trickle-down effect from the lack of money generated by tourism will be felt by even the most remote of rural dwellings. Apologies for not communicating via the medium of youtube, or a copy/pasted link.

    Coronavirus

    If governments cared so much about the welfare and lives of their citizens .. Why have they never lowered the speed limits on their roads to avoid the many deaths which will inevitably occur? Why allow people to live in towns and villages at the foot of live volcanoes? Why allow people to live in areas with natural fault lines and regular earthquakes? Why does Thailand care so much about corona but not the deaths during Songkran? - 297 people die in five days of Songkran festival (reported 16th April 2019) Risks occur daily in all of our lives, even simply crossing the road. To reduce risk to almost zero, stay at home. Allow me my own choices. I think Sweden are very brave (when compared to the rest of the world) and should be applauded for going a different way. Swedes are still living a pretty close to normal existence while the rest of the world hunkers down and denies basic freedoms by law enforcement which will likely cause future damage for potentially a generation. I couldn't find a youtube video to say what I wanted, so I said it myself.
  13. "The Pattaya Police stated there would be no leniency for curfew violators in Pattaya" Sounds like these three got 21 months leniency each.
  14. Yeah, those checkpoints really are a nuisance. Get rid of them. Just like those Thais who returned to Thailand and landed after curfew hours had begun. Inconvenient, they didn't like the new law so created a fuss and buggered off home. Yes, I know they're being rounded up but it is the Thai mentality. If a law is inconvenient, disruptive, or it just spoils their fun then they don't want to abide by it. Somchai: Must remember to wear facemask on the motorbike, the cat's sleeping in my helmet and a helmet doesn't matter anyway. Flip-flops, shorts, t-shirt, facemask.. safety check complete! Now ready to burn rubber and safely rock those highways.
