Random Sunday Morning Bangkok Musings for those who are less fortunate and not living here, as opposed to me, living large in the Big Swamp, read ye and weep...Taco Bell, Bar Girls and more......

Recommended Posts

The advert at the bottom of this page is for Malaysian Airlines. It says "Treat yourself to a vacay". 

 

Enjoy the rest of your day.🙄

Happpy Sunday.

Sounds like you are quite happy to be back in Thailand.

 

Your #3 is always a concern. I travel quite prepared to counter the unhygienic street conditions.

And sterile wipes are a must for me after walking barefoot about a temple (before I once again step into my footwear).

Socks. I try to make sure I have the correct footwear for the mission.

 

For a dedicated temple run to a non tourist temple, its hiking boots and socks. Thats because I will be packing the most weight. In tourist temples, I clip my boots in a bag to my pack.

 

For random temples its whatever footwear I have on. And like you, I carry wipes ifin I go barefoot

1. I broke down.

i did it.

 

i ordered a soft taco and being an American from Southern California who has eaten taco bell since there was taco bell I would say the soft taco was exactly the same only slightly (like 10%) more spicy. 

 

thanks for the Bangkok intel.

Reincarnated Jack Kerouak. 😁

Agree about the Keens - my standard footware when not at work.  And yes Taco Bell here is surprisingly good - but do you also eat the great local street food?  

 

And if you want a better wet market than Klong Toey - take a trip to Ang Sila.

All the time dude, last year I stayed like 500 Meters from Talat Phlu market and this year I am near Phra Kanong.

 

I sort of have a mental measurement for real street food. If any basic dish (like say pad Krapow) is below 50 baht then it is authentic with the usual

lesser sanitation, inferior ingredients, etc. Doubling the price only makes it a tourist food 🙂

Been there years ago.  I dont necessarily travel to wet markets qua wet markets, they are just a part of where I go to or are on the way. I particularly like the seafood market in Samut Prakhan, very well lit. Nothanburi Pier is a good one too. Maha Chai and around the Ta Chin are cool too and far easier to get to than going out Chonburi way.

Nah, just thought you'd like a break. You seem a little tense, a bit wound up. You're welcome to join me here on the outskirts of Pattaya, but the conditions are a little spartan. And the only bell is in the temple.

Bar Girls and more......

Whats up with the super long title thread and all you talk about is food?!?

 

OK - granted we all have to eat, and the closest I have gotten to american food is at SIzzler.

 

Didn't see any mention of Bar Girls.  What up with that  5555

Naw dude I appreciate it though. Im trying to avoid Pattaya agin , although at my age, perhaps "one more time" is in order. Alternatively, I can just buy a Leo and sit on the curb across from the Stumble Inn and pretend.

I think it was last February, I was cramming a Burrito in my hairy slobbering gob on the balcony there and two Ladyboys started going at it right on the corner there. Like wow dude look at them bitch slapping each other. Cool. Can I have another Coke please?

 

I think their Mex-American food is the best in BKK. Thanks for the tip on the Pizza, if I go to Vesuvio there isnt much to see, at least in the Storm you can get a people show.

 

For fun, sit outside in Argo and watch the folks being all furtive while going into Roritas. Makes ya wanna put down your Khachapuri and yell "no dude dont take that one, teeth" or "great choice, ask her to hum The Theme from Titanic" or "Remember, no kissing".
