Re: Big fire down Soi Bintabaat

The concept of having a 'designated district' for naughty stuff, fairly easy to get to and yet a little off the family tourist beat, is a good one. But it needs thought,consensus, cooperataion and planning by all in HH--- Please stop giggling !

Re: Fish and Chips

I'm so thrilled, the F & C thread is back again. The world is poised on the edge of another Middle east catasrophe but are we ex-pat Hua Hinians concerned--not a bit we've bigger things to worry about--where is the best F & C and don't forget the mushy peas.

Re: Warnings to Thailand's tourism sector

Very important for BKK and HH.
For Pattaya its business as usual---Girls and Golf--both at reasonable prices, sure brings them in.

Re: Aus voting

It is interesting that in Aus voting is compulsary so there is a 94% turnout as opposed to less than 505 in the land of the free and home of the brave, the great defender of democracy.

I do think that in Ausi n particular but in ALL countries there should be a box to tick--NONE OF THE ABOVE

Re: Whats up with the breakfast scene here? Any suggestions?

There is another huge thread on B'fast places and in the end its all very personal. For instance in addition to good food, I need nice view with a cabaret to watch, good WiFi and a copy of the BKK Post. For many other people those are irrelevant. I like El Murphy's

Re: Hello All - looking for somewhere new to visit....

How the hell can anybody know what somebody else is looking for. If you want to go out for a drink, meet and chat to a few available ladies, choose one and take her back to your hotel, all at reasonable prices--No problem. If you are looking for the excitement, entertainment and choices of Pattaya, ...

Re: Good restaurants around Hua Hin Hospital?

Another Britishism that confuses me--when somebody goes to a restaurant and says-- I was not dissappointed, does that mean it was not dreadful, just OK or does it mean something better than that??

McBacon sandwich, is that in the UK?
I do like their efforts to add local products .In the Atlantic Provinces of Canada (Trivia quiz, Name the 4 of them) Mcds serve Lobster rolls in the summer.

Re: Whats up with the breakfast scene here? Any suggestions?

From one extreme to the other. The Egg McMuffin, McDs huge B'fast suceess was invented in a McDs franchise in California, the owner was trying to do an Eggs Benedict look alike. In the early version he even did a Hollamdaise sauce but that proved too messy. I am not a big Mcds fan, but thier breakfa...

Re: Have you decided to leave Thailand and/or Hua Hin?

It is interesting how a language has a culture built into it. I worked for a company, one of the Thai senior managers had spent many years in the US, his English was perfect. If things went wrong, he would lose his temper and shout at the staff BUT he would shout in English. It was 'permissible' to ...
