Very good morning
So from Monday to yesterday was staying at Swisshotel Le Concorde, its old but facilities and upkeep is pretty good for a old hotel. Here are some photos
The pool area
Yesterday game at Siam Country Club Waterside in Chonburi yesterday, beautiful course
First time I see each rest area serving many types of beer and sake and sochio
Pullman hotel in Pattaya is a pretty good hotel although the location could be a little off. Located in North Pattaya it has its own beach front connected by its pool area.
Looking down at night from my room is the pool and restaurant
Spa and massage

This dish is known as "Gai Sam Yang" (literally 3 types of chicken), but then there is no chicken inside instead its made up of (anti-clockwise from the top) - dried shrimps; peanuts; shallots; lemon grass; cut Thai lime; cubes of raw ginger and the middle is green chili
Supposed to mix them all up
And finally this is a great dish with alcohol especially whiskey and soda mix
Froggy, you live well.
As for Concorde, I stayed once in 2003. Too close to arb nuat places
My 1st initiation to LOS was JW Marriot (didn’t know of Nana across other soi, jing). Next visit was old Hilton Na Lai Perk at Wireless.
I never realised all it took to live the high life was to sell screws. I spent my whole life trying to make and sell hi tech stuff and never made enough to eat out.
My idea of a good meal is a trip to burger king.
Brother [froggy] appears to live a very varied and full life,
with travels, assorted meals and fine dining, vintage wine, wine, and beverages.
I use the Priority line when I enter or leave. It's available at BKK and also DMK (at least entering, I'm sure about when leaving because I've not as yet flown international from DMK).
You can use it if you're flying business class (many airlines, not all I think. With TG, you just use your boarding pass). Airline will give you a paper pass either onboard (arriving) or at check-in (departing). Immigration officer will collect pass (may times they do not), if departing, there is a line checker who checks for pass. Another way to gain entry is if you have an APEC Business Travel Card.
A big time saver if you can use it. At BKK, from deplaning, through the long walk or shuttle bus ride, to curbside takes me around 20 minutes. The reverse also just as quick.
You left out something important - hydrotherapy.
good morning. this is what i would regard as perfect weather for the weekend and next week. median temp of 69-degree f. 106th anniversary of bay to breakers on sunday!
another bowl of homemade curry chap chai with quinoa to prepare for run.

Latest oil price
To everyone in this forum, this not a problem. But to 95% of siam kias who live day to day, including me, this is a very big problem. Knnbccb, everything keep increasing. Now roadside normal chicken rice also charge 50 baht. Add egg 60 baht. Curry rice also 50 baht. Ho Deng Pork noodle also 45 and 55 baht.
Paiseh to say, life is definitely hard for the most of the siam kias. With everything so expensive, even take home 20,000 baht also barely enough to survive.
