  1. Past hour
  2. I was there a few weeks ago and the food court is still busy. Also Big C Extra Klang food court is busy
  3. Thanks for the update. I know Thai have used EVA from London, I saw a video of a flight on the Thai Embassy London Facebook page. Videos on check in, arrival at Bangkok. Actually quite informative which surprised me.
  4. Thank you for your interesting discourse. Much of what you say has merit. But only some of what you say in the last paragraph will come true, IF the community is willing to stand by and allow it to occur. One big one is the move to a cashless society. A gross intrusion into our everyday lives. Already where I live, people are avoiding cash 'as it it dirty and spreads disease'. OMG and people are buying this cr ap. If cash disappears governments can exact control of everyone's lives and snoop at will. But I do disagree with you on the point that a vaccine for CO-19 won't change much. Because many countries are locking down communities - folk are like constrained animals, wanting to get out and about. And rebellion is mounting. As for jobs - people at large want normality - and once a vaccine happens normality will ensue - it must happen. Sure there will be other viruses - but more lock downs?? don't think so. Unless it's very serious like the bubonic plague. Just look at Italy for example - they were the worst in terms of infections and deaths per day. Severe lock downs were imposed - now there are opening borders. Look at USA. Still they have 1000 people dying daily - Why ?? because they are rebellious and will not observe strict lock downs.

  6. Rather the EU were in us making our laws and governing us with non-elected bureaucrats Also the UK were unable to trade with other global nations whilst a member of the EU under EU agreements / restrictions . The UK will continue to deal with the EU even if the trade talks fail bu using WTO . What trade deals has the UK done so far? Below an extract from a BBC web page , no mystical s , just facts While it was an EU member, the UK was automatically part of around 40 trade deals which the EU had struck with more than 70 countries. So far, 19 of these existing deals, covering 50 countries or territories, have been rolled over. This represents just over 8% of total UK trade. All of the following agreements are expected to take effect at the end of the transition period, according to the Department for International Trade: The government says it is still in negotiation with a further 18 countries which have existing EU trade deals, including Canada and Mexico. In addition, the UK government is also holding trade talks with the US, Australia and New Zealand.
  7. The reason that no information is given, is that the developer and the authorities already knows that the application is going to interfere with public safety and privacy.
  8. Exactly why nobody should vote for her, as the mad BLM matter agenda is a recipe for a complete looting anarchy
  9. Last-gasp PSG beat Atalanta to reach Champions League semis By Simon Evans Soccer Football - Champions League - Quarter Final - Atalanta v Paris St Germain - Estadio da Luz, Lisbon, Portugal - August 12, 2020 Paris St Germain's Marquinhos celebrates scoring their first goal with Kylian Mbappe and teammates, as play resumes behind closed doors following the outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) David Ramos/Pool via REUTERS LISBON (Reuters) - Paris St Germain staged a superb comeback by scoring two late goals to beat Atalanta 2-1 and book a spot in the Champions League semi-finals after a thrilling finish on Wednesday. Atalanta's superb display looked like dumping PSG out of the competition but Marquinhos levelled from close range in the final minute before Frenchman Kylian Mbappe set up fellow substitute Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting for a stoppage-time winner. With Mbappe starting on the bench after an ankle injury, the creative burden fell on Brazilian forward Neymar, and he blasted an early effort over with the goal at his mercy. Despite the gulf in finances between the clubs -- PSG spent more on Neymar and Mbappe than Atalanta had paid for players in total since 2001-02 -- the Italians led through Mario Pasalic who curled the ball home superbly in the 27th minute. But PSG's late show took Thomas Tuchel's side through to the last four as the weary Atalanta players slumped to the turf.

  10. Who has a "vested interest"? Property developers? Pattaya was always a <deleted> with a polluted sea in my experience on the ground but it had a thriving "nightlife" that brought a steady income to thousands of Thais. Since Purachai put a stake through the nightlife's heart it's been on a decline. Now, IMO Pattaya is still a <deleted> with a polluted sea and nothing to bring farangs. Any western tourist wishing to have a beach holiday is not going to Pattaya. The horde filled the gap for a while, but with no tourists hard reality has arrived. Pattaya just doesn't have anything worth it, IMO. Given the nightlife is never going to get back to where it was, Pattaya has to reinvent itself, and if the authorities could get the "Riviera of SEA" stars out of their eyes they could create a paradise for western expat retirees, but given the present <deleted> authorities that's not going to happen, IMO.
  11. Looks like a bloke to me, that and the red bull seal the deal for sure, not
  12. The two statements above is a clear contradiction. So, what are they asking for then? Oh, yes, see below. Ok, and how is more credit, going to be easier for them? To borrow more money during a time you are not sure to have the capacity to make payments is a success story for great disaster.
  13. This never made much sense to me. Married or not, the sole point of quarantine is to be isolated from anyone else. I have friends who have been repatriated by their company to China and are currently quarantined in Tianjin. Absolutely no room sharing no matter if it's your partner, wife, brother or siamese twin (chainsaw provided in the latter case).
  14. This activity of the IB was part of orders from the Prime Minister Prayut Chan-Ocha and DPM Prawit Wongsuwan to clean up Thailand, said Naew Na. Think this pair have already cleaned up and cleaned out Thailand and the after life

  16. Zach Johnson wins 2020 Payne Stewart Award FILE PHOTO: Aug 7, 2020; San Francisco, California, USA; Zach Johnson chips on at the 15th green during the second round of the 2020 PGA Championship golf tournament at TPC Harding Park. Mandatory Credit: Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports (Reuters) - Zach Johnson, a 12-times winner on the PGA Tour who is known for his gracious demeanor and good sportsmanship, was named the recipient of the 2020 Payne Stewart Award on Wednesday. The honor is given annually to a player sharing the late Stewart's respect for the traditions of the game and his commitment to uphold golf's heritage of charitable support. "I never got to meet Payne, but I loved him," Johnson, a two-times major champion, said in a PGA Tour news release. "I loved how he played the game certainly as a competitor but then how he lived his life off the golf course – he's the model." Johnson, 44, was born in Iowa City, Iowa, but was raised 30 miles north in Cedar Rapids where he took up the game as a 10-year-old. He honed his skills at nearby Elmcrest Country Club, which now hosts the annual Zach Johnson Foundation Classic. Prior to the establishment of his foundation, which fulfills a dream to give back to children and families in Cedar Rapids, the former Masters and British Open champion's charity work included raising funds for victims of the 2008 Iowa floods. Johnson will be honored on Sept. 2 during the Tour Championship in Atlanta. "I remember going to the Tour Championship and the Payne Stewart Award Ceremony my rookie year and thinking, 'This is the pinnacle of a PGA Tour player's career.' It's about how you utilize the gifts you are given, and I know Payne lived that way," said Johnson. "I am deeply grateful and honored. I don't like being in the limelight a whole lot, but I hope in this regard I can at least be a small piece of his legacy." Past winners of the award include Byron Nelson, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Ben Crenshaw, Nick Price, Tom Watson, Gary Player, Davis Love III, Nick Faldo and Ernie Els. "Zach would say he's just a normal guy from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, but in truth, he has one of the most compelling stories on the PGA tour in the last 25 years," said PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan. American Stewart, who died in a plane crash in 1999, won 11 times on the PGA Tour including three majors.

  17. They forgot to add the "M" to the end of their "SHA" motif
  18. To OP: design and coding are different things. If you want to design an adventure game, there are tools downloadable online. This is something I started a few times, but never finished, despite some effort into world building and characterisation.
  19. Is there anyone in Thailand, noted for trading older, "retro" games consoles and games from Japan? This is a hobby that I could turn round into employment, but I'd also like to know where to buy.
  20. Reed brings 'good vibes' into regular season-ending Wyndham Championship FILE PHOTO: Golf - European Tour - BMW PGA Championship - Wentworth Golf Club, Virginia Water, Britain - September 20, 2019 Patrick Reed of the U.S. in action during the second round Action Images via Reuters/Paul Childs/File Photo (Reuters) - Patrick Reed returns to the site of his maiden PGA Tour win at this week's Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina where the world number nine is seeking momentum ahead of the FedExCup Playoffs. The former Masters champion brings plenty of confidence into the final event of the novel coronavirus-hit regular season at Sedgefield Country Club where in 2013 he picked up the first of his eight PGA Tour victories. Among those in the field this week's are world number six Webb Simpson, four-times major champion Brooks Koepka, 2013 runner-up Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose, who is fresh off a ninth place finish at the PGA Championship. Reed said the par-70 layout suits his game well as it is not a bomber's paradise but rather a shotmaker's golf course that allows players to get creative with slopes and undulations in the greens to feed the ball back towards the hole. "To be able to get that creative side and be able to see different types of shots I feel fits my game well and I've always liked to do that," said Reed. "Especially when you come out here and get a victory at this place, you always have good vibes when you come in. "So I feel like the comfort level here is at an all-time high and you feel more free and you just go out and attack." Reed will be among the top 125 players to qualify for the Aug. 20-23 Northern Trust, which is the first of three FedExCup Playoffs events. Among those on the outside looking in and trying to make a last-gasp push for the playoffs this week are twice major winner Zach Johnson, 2017 Masters winner Sergio Garcia and British Open champion Shane Lowry. Johnson, who enters the week 129th on the FedExCup points list, said accuracy off the tee will be key as the Bermuda greens will be tough to hold without spin out of the fairway. "I don't want to say it's a first shot golf course, but man that first shot is crucial," said Johnson, who earlier on Wednesday was named as the recipient of the 2020 Payne Stewart Award. "You can still make pars pretty easily if you hit the fairway. I think the emphasis for me is going to be more fairway."

  21. To my knowledge, sun conures are not endangered. EDIT : they are now considered to be so.
  22. I used to own a few of these. They are a primitive snake called a xenopeltid, or sunbeam snake. That is to say they don't belong to pythons, boas, or the "advanced" caenophidian snakes, to which other familiar snakes belong. Sunbeams are beautiful and iridescent, are non-venomous, and cannot draw blood if they bite. If you don't like snakes, then ironically, these are nice to have around, being snake eaters themselves, and harmless to man.
  23. Well even IF they'd get deported without cost the worst case outcome is to be stuck in Immigration Jail / IDC for at least several weeks or months. Even in the most civilized countries that's not the best situation to look forward to and I think we can all agree that Thailand is not the most civilized country by a long stretch. Especially when it comes to correctional facilities. I don't know many who would chance a multi-month Thai prison stay in exchange for a couple hundred bucks. But this is all just fun and games since apparently TH always charges deportees for their flights or people rot away in prison. It was just an interesting situation for me to ask about as I don't know any other country that charges for deportations. They are usually happy to get rid of an illegal alien or convict even if that means paying for a plane ticket.
