Nakhon Sawan News

Recommended Posts

About time I posted my report of my stay in Nakorn Smog although the smog was non existent during this stay though I still bought my own oxygen just in case.

The Bonito Chinos was in general an excellent choice. The rooms are large new and well decorated with first class furniture...but rather dim as though the light fittings were good and expensive a couple of them lacked light bulbs.

The hotel is well decorated and the staff were pleasant and the room cleaned well.

I was advised on questioning the staff that the name was Spanish and meant Beautiful Chinese. I have the idea there at some stage there was a beautiful Chinese person with a connection to Spain.

The hotel has a rooftop restaurant which was quite pleasant and the food was to mind reasonably priced. I had a steak which was acceptable and my wife had a fish with somtum which she pronounced as excellent as she methodically tried to work her way from tail to head with out success. The next night she had lap and I had chicken with cashew nuts...delicious.

Staff throughout were quite friendly.

Breakfast was served in a downstairs restaurant with a good assortment of chinese thai and the usual cpp breakfast fare. Eggs were basically cooked to order. Everything looked and tasted fresh. Redshirts would not like the photo of Ahtitsit at the hotel opening that was on the wall.

The hotel has a fully accessible ADA specification toilet on the ground floor. The best I have seen in Thailand though sadly the bathroom in the room was difficult impossible to enter with a wheelchair.

Biggest complaint was coffee. In the restaurant I ordered a capppachino and received a half cup of black coffee and a shot glass with about 2ccm of milk.

Thinking this may be a mistake I tried again in the coffee shop which had a beautiful esspresso machine. You guessed it, same again. Someone will have to teach them how to make a real Itallan or Australian Cappachino.

I cannot report on BigC because there was no way to get across the road.

Having read your post HRR I have gleaned that you spent TWO night in N/S may I ask why two I would have thought that one would have been one to many ???.... Oh got it now the car must have broken down, air filter clogged per chance.

What ho Exeter.

I thought that you had left, long time no hear. If you look at the N/S post's further down you will see that H/M just gave it a glowing report well factual anyway. With regard's to the National Park you had better move quick as the one you have nearby at the moment old Yingluck I do believe is going to flood big time for the new dam. Might have to build the new one for us upper class on an island or at least on stilt's. I don't know where your getting all the water from in your river but it's not coming from us lot in K.P.P here it's down to a trickle with sand (Clean) bank's everyware. You can even walk across to the island here not a drop of water in sight. I will say it myself it's looking very drab, a real pore show.

The other side of Mae Wong National park is at the end of our land and will not be flooded though there is a plan to dam the valley where my wifes shop is.

I have now returned to London after my weel in Penzance. Whilst in Cornwall, had trips out to Plymouth ( home of the Royal Navy), Camborne, Falmouth and St Ives. Had a good few pasties, indeed early in the morning the aroma of pasties filled the air, but they aint cheap! In Cornwall a medium pasty is from £2.35 upwards, whilst in Plymouth £1.70. Fish and chips in Penzance were £4.90 and pretty good taste as well. On my trip to Falmouth I call in at a chippie that does an OAP special, Fish and chips, mushy peas, bread and flora, pot of tea for £5.75, not bad by todays prices but 2 years ago it was £4.95! But good none the less. Had some excellent west country brews as well including Sharps Doom Bar. Trains ran well and were very busy, coming back last saturday passed a Deltic special heading for Penzance, it was Mazey Day.

The weather has now improved for a few days but it still not make me want to stay.

The train ride from Paddington to Penzance is a joy and reminds me what beautiful scenery the UK has, even so...

If you go that way again try a cheesy, hammy eggy with chips which is cheese on toast, ham and a fried egg on top. The last one was on the Devon/Cornwall border somewhere years ago and I only just managed to finish it. Great with HP sauce on it.

This June has been the wettest on record, you may have seen some of the floods, amazing just like Thailand!

Yesterday had a wonderful pint of Adnams Broadside and then thought I would try Elgoods Black Dog, lucky me only got a 1/2 it tasted like vinegar!

Today had something I do miss in LOS when not in Pattaya, boiled beetroot, very good as well.

Now about the midpoint of my visit. The novelty is wearing off! Fuel down to 131p a litre, strangely though nothing else seems to have come down that is associated with oily products, I expect they have forgotten, or are bankers.

What ho Dave, nice to hear that your doing ok well except for the weather and the odd beer. Diesel is now under 30bt or about 60p a lt try that in blighty. With regard's to beetroot Makro's sell it but you have to boil it yourself only about an hour H/M has some in his fridge will cook it tomorrow delish. Half way through A, only another 6 week's + to go then. H/M would have jumped on the next plane week's ago your a martyr. But then again I don't live in N/S so who know's what I would do if that were the case.

That's 14.5 week's in total Dave have you lost the plot??? and you have still got over 6 or 1032 hour's to go. Get on the next plane nothing is worth that, bugger me you would get less time in jail for murder. Or moved to an inactive post if you were here. Enjoy the Guinness, by the way you can get a pint of that in BKK for under £4 and the food would be cheaper so about the same as Weatherspoons. Would you like the phone No: for EVA AIR???

My daughter has arranged a farewell weekend for me and as it had to arranged around the fish and chip special on the local steam railway, I had to wait a bit, I will not see her again for about 9 months.

Yesterday I went to the RAF Museum and a wrhtwhile visit indeed, when I arrived at the entrance I somehow got mixed up with 2 coach loads of German visitors, you could not make it up!

Today I have been to the Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park, excellent ver emotive and lots of people there as well, then I saw 2 of the new routemasters on route 38, could not get to either bus stop in time so will have to go again and try my luck at Victoria.

Breaking news that 2 Tornados have crashed near Lossiemouth, one is in the sea the other is missing.

Andreas Villas-Boas new Spurs manager.

Had a good steak today at wetherspoons.

Today I have been up to Victoria, after 20 mins one of the new Routemasters turned up on route 38 Victoria-Hackney Central, went as far as Piccadilly. Very good, 2 sets of closing doors and the open platform at the back. Steps at the front behind the driver and the tradional one at the rear. Front seat upstairs then down the back stairs oand off the platform, excellent bus, just the job for London. No rain today and 22C.
