Thought that would happen, the guy Richard, it was his first time to Thailand and opened a bar :) , for his mate to run.

maybe another white elephant.

I hear that paddy has gone back to Ireland, to look for a 4 leaf clover, he needs it.

When in Business you have got to be open if you like it or not, you are providing a service for the customer, who in the end pays the bills, no customers, no Buisness, when you loose one 100% chance they will not be back.

As I have said so many times before, there are so many Falangs that think opening a bar is so easy. But, when they come to count their takings for the first week, if they have not made 100,000 baht then they get disgruntled. After the first month, if they are not millionairs by then they start getting slacker and slacker, handing over most of the Farang duties to the Thai members of staff, and that is where the spiral downward really begins. Here at the Farang Connection, it has taken six years of hard work ( not six days,weeks or months)and now we can finally say we are making money. Next comes paying off the debts we have accrued in that time. We have finally reached a stage where we are busy every single day, and we are getting more and more regular customers. Our guest book is approaching the 7,000 mark, many of whom return. If all our customers turned up at once, we would have enough to fill the bus station, let alone the pub. This did not happen overnight I can assure you. So any wannabe bar owners out there that do not want to put in 200% and get a return of 25%, at least for the first couple of years, then forget it. I know. I've done it.

I agree 100 % and this are the dreamers who talking a lot of s**** afterwards. That they are sometimes wrong or greedy or just stupid they will never admit.

Martin,

As i have said on a previous post, you have kept open and worked hard for where you are today, i admire you mate, running any Business is a hard graft these days, and especially in the Land of Smiles, i know the score still doing it at the mo, working from 5 am untill 8.30 tonight sat, 7 days per week, got 14 staff working for me, but the boss still has to do things his way at times, when in Thailand which i make about 4 times per year, i play hard and enjoy myself, it's got to be done.

When i actually sell this place or lease it out which i have done with one of my other Premises in the UK, i will be in Buriram full time and yes i am going to open a Business and it will be open from 8 am untill midnight, not like the cowboys in Buriram, fair play to the Bamboo doing well, never closed, there are so many dreamers out there who have never ran anything, not even a car, if you are going to suceed do it 100%, my customers think what go's in the cash register go's in my back pocket, i wish.

Can't really speak for others but as an ex bar owner I hardly got a night's sleep in 3 years which is why I eventually sold up to have a break but came away very happy as a result and way up in pocket. The place has been run into the ground since by a Yank who would rather be drinking elsewhere so see your point. Isn't easy and you have to put up with some individuals you wouldn't normally give the time of day to. The Farang- know alls about Thailand who when it comes down to it know sod all- one in particular in Burairam I would have basically told to go somewhere else if my shout as they end up losing you customers and for some reason believe you want to actually listen to their garbage. . .

Was in the German Bar the other day and one of the girls used to work in the Bamboo and when i asked if they were going to sell Thai beer the answer was NO which i find a little bit strange as NORBIES in Surin sell small Leo!!!!!!.I think i might be correct but these two bars are owned by the same guy so it amzes me that can sell Thai beer in Surin but not Buriram.

As for Chris i have no idea where they are :D .

The old Sawdee Khrap is due to open in 6 weeks but word has it cash may be a problem :D

Hi

My good deed for the day ...Took an elderly German guy who has lived in Thailand for many years to Farang Food Paradise for lunch recently. He told the German manager in no uncertain terms (as only another German could) :) as to what he thought of the no Thai beer policy.

Everyone I know has told them the same thing so why there is still no local beer is a mystery! Obviously some secret agenda :D

TBWG :D
