Scams in Pattaya

In a sin city like Pattaya, it is almost impossible not to be the victim of one or another scam.
Just go to google and try a search for "scams pattaya". WOW! You get an amazing list of all possible dirty scams.

After you have been cheated a few times (just like me or anybody else who stays here for a longer time), you could be pissed and say: "I NEVER EVER give money again to a deaf or crippled person". Because... sometimes you see that same deaf-mute guy another day in another place, talking and discussing with others, just like any other normal person.

But such a reaction would be sad for those poor people that really need help like this man in the picture.
By the way, Thai in general, are very honest. But this is Pattaya where all the scum has been brought together, so use your common sense... :-)

Bars closed for 3 days, thai way

Bars are really closed today, in last respects to Princess Galyani.

Well, an excellent time to get sober again for the real alcoholics among us, I guess (and in Pattaya there is no lack of people with a small alcoholic problem...).
Though, tomorrow you'll be able to drink again in a similar way you can still smoke (it is forbidden, unless you can hide all evidence fast enough before the police arrives...;-))

How long does a girl work in Pattaya?

Just listen to her:

1) Mamasan talks to you, girl doesn't say anything = less than 1 week
2) "Hello" and "thank you" = 2 weeks
3) Me Kung... What name you? = 1 month
4) "Hello Handsome man!", "Me go with you", "You married?", "how old you?", "How long you stay?" = 3 months
5) She orders wine or cappuccino? = too long!

Well, something like that...

Thai, and Thai whiskey

Thai don't like to stay at home and they certainly don't like to be alone. They visit family, go to a restaurant, or play cards.
And sometimes they drink a little bit too much of Thai whiskey, like the Mekong, Sang Thip or Sang Som.

This guy looks like he has been drinking all of it, and his friend is helping him to look and smile at the camera...:-)

Having not so secret fun in Secrets

Don't know how they do it, but in Secrets they always have some nice, little movies.
Maybe not the best bar in town (though not so bad either, Halloween was nice there...), but they know the importance of youtube these days.

Here is some CHANGE

Club Blu has been sold recently. If Obama can deliver the same amount of "change", as bars change in Pattaya, he can keep his promise.
Lucky as we are, the sexy shooters girls remain the same...
