LATEST NEWS

Bangkok Expats’ Club is back “in business” with very strong, powerful corporate backing, and of course, even stronger and very supportive and committed personal backup of hundreds of new members from Bangkok and around the world.

Come to join the original Bangkok Expats’ Club on Sunday the 10th of August 2003 at 2 PM sharp.

VENUE:  SUBWAY  &

               COFFEE WORLD

              Sukhumvit Road

              Between Soi Nana and the Landmark Hotel

Meeting upstairs in a beautiful setting, with comfortable new chairs and sofas. I think there is also a number of computers for internet  access.

PLEASE NOTICE:   This is a private club. But everyone is welcome.  

However, we do have a few new rules that will be strictly    

enforced.

1. We expect attendants to be properly dressed, no shorts, sandals, etc.

2. Absolutely no intoxicated or otherwise disturbing persons will be allowed into the meeting.

3. Bangkok Expats’ Club  is a Private Memberclub.

4. Every Membership Application needs to be approved by Founding Members.

5. Guests (Thai / Foreigners) are very welcome.

Guests’ Attendance Fee is Baht 20 per person and Baht 30 for couples. BEC Nametags must be worn at all times during the meeting.

The Bangkok Expats’ Club is the place to meet people with integrity and professionalism. It’s the place to network with like-minded (business) people, to get or to give information of all kinds, to make living and working in Bangkok more enjoyable and safe.

…See you all there

JOERN

PS: The Subway franchise is operated by Khun Nui, the wife of Greg Lange, MD, Sunbelt Asia. Greg is one of our many corporate backers. He is presently in USA and returning Sunday morning at 1AM, which is why we have chosen the time for meeting at 2 PM.

                                     Chico: "The garbage man is here."

                       Groucho: "Well, tell him we don't want any.”

(By now, you all know I am a great fan of the Marx Brothers – anyone who has got any movies or  CD’s with them?)

Can anybody tell me why there are 2 clubs now what happened at the initial meeting?

The new improved original sounds a bit serious, and I'll be buggered if I have to wear a name tag.

I can tell you why there are two clubs....

You know my email address already...you get all my email newsletters and bulletins - why don't you ask me directly.

Nametags: At the very first meeting everyone had nametags... (and, by the way, you didn't show up to that one) no problems whatsoever...with anyone...why do you make an issue out of this...haven't you got better things to do?

Go sell some used cars f.ex.

We are not serious, we are just top professionals.

Mr Joern

Groucho also said that he would not want to be a part of an association that would have him as a member. As I remember you issued a personal threat to an unfortunate that was enquiring about fake TOEFL certificates...not the best way to enlist members for your club.

If I can't attend in shorts and sandals who needs it? We are a loose collection of expats not reps for ASEAN.

Get wise dude...I don't see many folks giving you hits on your appeal for membership.

I propose an alternative...how about an 'Expat Gang'? No formal meetings, suits, ties, name tags...crazy behaviour and drunkeness de rigour. Just like gangs in California you identify each other with a hand sign. If while walking down Soi Nana with your bar girl in tow and make eye contact with another falang make an 'O' with your right hand and an 'E' with your left. It takes two for a quorum for 'Original Expats'. Then repair to the nearest bar to exchange views on the news of the day...business proposals, conspiracies, and etc...maybe exchange bar girls as well if they were amenable.

Direct action on the streets of the City of Angels...(isn't that what they used to call Los Angeles?). As expats many of us are in a state of perpetual anarchy...what better way to communicate than the above?

Groucho would be proud.

Robert...you are a depraved individual. If business, crew-cutted individuals choose to associate in Thailand it is not for you to criticise. Your ridiculous analogy to Los Angeles street gangs begs belief...do you really think that people will 'sign' each other on Bangkok sidewalks? And your disrespect for lovely Thai lady bar staff has not gone un-noticed.

Please shut what you are doing and give the rest of us some peace.

Tutsi...you think you baaaad but you not bad enough for robertT. So choose off...4 am Soi Nana with WMD. I'll bring my bar girl entourage with me so you can see what you are missing.

I'll shoot my mouth off wherever I please...Go**ammit.

(Not really, folks...me and Tutsi are having a little joke...)

Just to clarify yet again, The Bangkok Expats' Association has no relationship with the Bangkok Expats Club, which is an entirely separate venture.

We had a GREAT meeting today -- signed up 12 new members during the meeting itself, then, much to my delight, 3 people (a German man and a Thai lady plus an Englishman) came around from the other side of the bar and asked to join.

FIFTEEN new members in just one meeting! Wonderful!

That puts us at *39* REGISTERED members in just 2 weeks' time.

I *hope* the topic for next week will be the renting and buying of vehicles in Thailand. I'm communicating with a person who owns a company specializing in particular in the acquisition of used vehicles, whether for rent or purchase, and hope he will be able to come to next Sunday's meeting.

By the way, Bob, proprietor of The Office Bar & Grill (current venue for meetings) has agreed to put on today's buffet brunch each of the 3 remaining Sunday meetings in August. At 100 baht/person, it's really a good deal -- even if it loses the bar money (as it does).

We have a mid-week meeting 5:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M. at The Office Bar & Grill on Sukhumvit Soi 22 Wednesday, August 13th.

We also are fortunate to have several corporate sponsors, global corporations.

Hope to see you soon --

Mekhong Kurt, Acting President

The Bangkok Expats' Association has no relationship with the Bangkok Expats Club,

EXCEPT - they were both started by the same person ?

make eye contact with another falang make an 'O' with your right hand and an 'E' with your left

The 'O' is fine, but how the 4-hashes do you make a one handed 'E' ? Can it be in any font ? :o
