    It's that time again..............

    Heading back to LOS tomorrow night.... Nothing planned much at all this time, I am tipping I am going to be looking for something to do.... I have committed to a month in Bangers with Madam... She will be working thru the day, so I will have to keep myself entertained.... pretty easy to do.... but can get a bit repetitive...


    There are loose plans to head to Patong early December for 3 weeks, catch up with Smiley and a couple of other people.... but will see how that pans out... I may very well end up there earlier than I think.... dunno if I can do a month in Bangers with out getting out of the joint....

    Anyway, as always I am looking forward to the trip... there is always something new to learn, and new people to meet. It's funny, how my trips have evolved over the years.... earlier on it was mongering hard, these days I can take it or leave it.... I must be getting old...... or boring 555

    Yep, same with me. Early on you never imagine it could get old, but it does. Take it or leave it is right.

    When does it get old? Some times I wish that would happen to me.

    Since when do you write trip reports Dave, 555

    U back online?

    Yeah, good point mate 555 You know my trips have become very boring mate, but I will try until I either bore everyone to death or I bore myself 555

    The flight over was packed........... not a spare seat to be had. At least it was on time.... I used BFS at swampy... well worth it.. Beautiful TG meets you and escorts you thru immi and customs. Immigration was busy, but she took me to the diplomatic area. Straight through, straight through customs and out the door having a smoke (cigarette fellas) with madam within 15 mins of hitting the deck. For the price, it is well worth it imo.

    Madam headed off to work about 6:30am and left me with the day to myself... First job was exchange some cash... IMO, if you are in BKK you can not beat VASU. Pretty well at the bottom of the stairs of Nana BTS on the odd side of Suk. I don't know of a place with a better rate, there may well be, but I haven't found it.

    I have had the same thai phone number for years.... BUT I left the sim at home....... FARRK!!! I will fix that today..

    Yesterday was a say hello to some ol friends in Bangers.... It ended up a bit messy, with me snoring my head off at about 7pm 555... I woke up this morning to find blood all over my shorts.... just where the hell did that cut on my arm come from? I have no idea, but I am guessing I musta had fun... I must remember to eat more than a bag of pineapple, if I am going to have a big drink....

    It's 7:15am, Madam has gone to work, and I am feeling pretty good... Later in the day I will find my way down to soi 4 and have a few beers... Madam finishes about 7 and she will come get me when she is done....

    Where I was yesterday, the bars I had a drink in, seemed quieter than usual, and my favourite food place on soi 8 has changed names... I think it was called 8 before, now it is the Kiwi something.... it used to have GREAT food, and was great place to watch the Rugby's and Cricket.... I don't know if that has changed.

    This is just the start of a 60 day odyssey, I am hopeful that I will get thru it relatively unscathed... 555 Patong, could well be my undoing 5555

    Comp's down until the new logic board comes in from Bangers which looks like it could be a week or so... can't wait to watch the carnage in Patong... as I'll be relatively sober for the events to come, 555

    Have had a pretty quiet time in Bangers.... Having a drink most days, and meeting some pretty nice people along the way. And for some sad reason am safely tucked up in bed at a reasonable hour.. So much so, that when madam's alarm goes off at six, I am up with her..... WTF is happening to me? 5555

    Yesterday, Madam and I, headed off to her apartment, for an afternoon drink and food.... Now, I have been there many times before.. The people are all working class thais, you know, factory workers, taxi drivers those sort of jobs, and are genuinely nice people. There was one thing going on that intrigued me. A bit of background about me, I am a fairly large Race Horse punter, to the point I run a fairly successful ratings outfit for Australian Horse Racing. I have ...been known to also dabble in SP and put up markets on Betfair, with success, so the punt is nothing new to me.

    There was a game of numbers, something I know nothing about.... 12 numbers, pick the winning number and you are paid 9/1, so 1000 baht gets you 10k. Pretty good game to run I would think, there is about a 30% market to the house in that one.... So, I am wondering, is this a common game or something that is a one off? And what is it called.... It is a game I have never had anything to do with at home or anywhere else for that matter.. I hadn't seen it before...

    Hope you're still enjoying your time, Dave.

    How's your "arm"? Any more blood in your shorts?
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    They play that game in the Baan. We have a card game at aunties house (Por Kay) that goes on most everyday when Sweeties cousin and her American husband are in town. The end of the little soi becomes the gambling center of the Baan. 555

    Usually a couple games start up outside the gate, a dice game and cards/numbers. I think it is out of site of the police. Although, they came down on Sngkhran for a hand out. We hadn't started our game yet, but they got a few hundred from the other games going on.

    Just an observation.... Sitting in Bar 4 this afternoon, watching the world go by, as you do, and I noticed every 2nd car, that wasn't a taxi or tuk tuk, was a vehicle that would attract luxury car tax in Australia... There is certainly some very big money in this town.

    Managed to get caught in the protests around MBK this afternoon as well.... Man, there were a helluva lot of people marching... the traffic was farked.... I am wondering how long it will be tolerated.... I am keeping a close eye on things, with an exit plan to Patong...

Yeah I have done that before........ anyway, managed to crack my arm on the edge of a tile step... But all is good!!!
