Pat in Pattaya

Living in an oven

Recommended Posts

We have two of the "big brothers" of them in our sleeping room, a great breeze. 
Which is the big brother? Not the traditional helicopter ones, not very efficient fans those

ha ha a lot of guys living in their wifes house near a jungle trying to convince condo owners they have a lovely breeze lol.

Im on the 18th floor seaside in danger of being sucked off the balcony (no pun) when there is the slightest breeze.

Dont see how you ground floor jungle dwellers can beat that!

Horses for courses.  Personally, I couldn't live like a bee in a hive.  After 9 months in a flat, vowed never again.

Indeed, lived in a condo twice, once in KL, again when we first came here. We had two flats (apartments) in Rome and another in Brussels, all the negatives of a condo without the positives.

 

I like being more than 6" from my neighbours, I don't like hearing them shagging (the lady in KL was a "screamer").

 

I love having pets and trees and green stuff, and a barbie with my mates (yes, I do have mates, despite being a TV mod). Pretty well everything you can't have in a condo.

And yapping dogs, roosters loud speakers at 6am, mosquitos, your hard earned $ in the name of a woman you have little in common with and watching rice grow as a hobby.

Yep living the dream! But I'm sure your situation is "different" lol

 

I get the lift down to the beach and choose my next GF right there [emoji16]

 

And THEN I need the air on

Issan sub-forum is an odd place for you to be hanging out.

Not sure what that means but we are both ex customers. That's the whole point!
Any way I'm still looking for a non fantasy explanation of how dudes living in a village get a breeze?

Another satisfied ex-customer, eh?  LOL!

@jakethepeg I won't criticise your lifestyle if you don't criticise mine. 

 

I'm in a stable relationship with a Thai lady who is older than I am. I work so I don't need to watch rice grow (we can't see any rice from our home anyway).

 

Yes the house and land is in her name, but it's not worth more than I can walk away from if the wheel were ever to come off.

 

We own the yapping dogs and roosters, have a puyai baan who only comes on the speakers when there's something important to say and at 6AM I'm in the car heading to work.

 

Our breeze come off the river, a pretty big river called the Chao Phraya, you may know it (we don't live in Issan).

 

Like was noted before, horses for courses.

"Living in an oven" doesn't just occur in Isaan

All interesting stuff as I’m in trying to plan a naturally cooled house appropriate for the tropics whilst trying to convince the missus that her idea of a modern house/bungalow dates back to the 70’s in the UK and is totally inappropriate for these climes.

Good for you.  I go to Pattaya less than before, had my fill of all that starting in the 80s and 90s.  Last trip, stayed in a nice little resort next to Lake Maprachan.  Good chow, swimming pool, bar, no elevators, couple of maidens about who figured out I wasn't a potential customer, and it was all good after that.  Guess I'm well and truly ruined from living upcountry.  :biggrin:

 

Breezes over land and water are the same basic principle.  I was just out on my front patio, nice breeze blowing in from the South/Southwest.

Good reading over in the housing/diy thread. 

 

Be a lot of fun to start from scratch and do it right.

Breezes are not the same inland as they are by the sea. As an ex pilot who has more than a passing interest in the weather ..trust me or just google why sea breezes are predominant, its all pretty logical and should be taught at school probably
