  1. North put's me near Big C, South puts me in the trees with the damn monkeys..555.. So I'm East of the temple..(downhill)
  2. Surely if the Black Bamboo has been open/trading as normal, and has been full of folk/raking in the 1000's of Baht when the rest of the nation's beer-bars have been closed by order for months now, then some 'organisation' on the island has allowed this to happen..? It reminds of Mad Max 3 (Thunderdome) when 'Aunty' (Tina Turner) asks the population "Who runs Bartertown"? So who runs Samui? (Yes we think we may know the answer to that one,..& it's not any BKK-based ruling institution). I do also feel sorry for the inhabitants of Samui that have all been put at risk because of this.
  3. Remember when he came to power..? He took over every national TV station for an hour each Friday evening and preached total bo***x to the nation... Well IMO he's just doing same as he's always done.. telling the nation what they want to hear.. But without any truth what so ever!
  4. My house is near the Chinese temple on the way up to the lookout. Every evening Thai ladies come with buckets of tomatoes, bananas, coconut, mangoes etc.. Despite written notice that it's forbidden. ..But in a time when so many unfortunate folk are queuing for food hand-outs in/around town I would like to think that the food destined for the monkeys could be cooked and help the needy..? Or is this not Thai logic...Monkeys need food 'cos there's so, so many of them, and without the donations each evening they'll starve.. mmm? Without the food deliveries will these monkeys start to get hungry..& even more aggressive..?
  5. When I joined this site a few weeks ago the daily 'new infection' figure was around 4800/5000 people, & the powers-that-be were introducing all number of Covid-beating schemes. So now here we sit, the new stats show 16000+ today, and the MPs are STILL fuelling the nation with promises. There's STILL folk queuing for food hand-outs, there's STILL no organisation whatsoever as regards vaccinations, & STILL just a boat-load of possibles. maybe's, & ifs... ... Does any member of this government have the balls to stand up and tell the rest of them that they have not got a fri**in clue about how to tackle this situation..? What will be the daily figure come October..When the country was set to open up again..? Will the whole country be a 'red zone' for tourists? .. so have to avoid..?
  6. Did I hear that Covid has a 2 week incubation period..? So a coupla weeks from now the UK residents will know if Boris's 'Freedom' plan has worked ..or spelt disaster for the nation..? At the moment (oop in Yorkshire) we are experiencing food shortages on the shelves of supermarkets! Yes, seemingly there is a nationwide shortage of HGV/truck drivers that have NOT tested positive for Covid... So supermarkets are not getting their regular deliveries, PLUS staffing levels at all major stores are down due to employees testing positive also... This is before any possible backlash from BoJo's liberty-stunt... Next few weeks will surely tell..?
  7. Wow..Look how strong and fat it is... Not very 'sick' at all..555 (Lucky those horns never made contact with any of those riders!)
  8. At a time when the whole country is suffering an escalating Covid crisis & many/all medical facilities are stretched to bursting point...Along comes the Minister of public health & (as if he's nothing else to worry about) imposes this 'cosmetic tax' on the sales of tampons..! At this point (even tho' I'm a man) I take my hat off to all the Thai ladies that got together & kicked up a proper stink over this dumb plan. This guy may well be good friends with the other bright spark who thought this week was a good time to purchase another needy submarine... You really could not make this up could you..?
  9. So I'm waiting for all the grovelling PR folk on the island to make a humble apology to the lady this coming week.. Her photo will be in the news with her holding a bouquet of flowers given to her by some high-ranking member of the TaT... One of the high-end hotels will be seen offering her a suite for the next 2 weeks free of charge including meals.. The taxi-mafia will promise to take her anywhere in Pukkers without ripping her off... (OK that last one was a bit extreme 555) I think you've all seen the picture I'm painting here.
  10. Dr Biscuit.. Before all the Covid restrictions there was a regular ViP bus that arrived in H.H. from Phuket nightly around 9/9.30pm..The big bus is (as many are) White & blue, but with a big orange palm tree design on it's sides. This is a nice bus, with each seat having headsets rather than a big TV blaring at you! Many Government buses (if going to Bangers) miss H.H. by using the bypass... If this is gonna be the case then get off the bus in Pranburi at the little bus station/office in the centre of town (at the main traffic lights), then catch the 30b 'Orange chug-along' up to H.H. that leave about every half hr thru' the day. Just a coupla options for you if intending to use a bus.. Cheers now.
  11. Yesterday the recorded new cases were about 5,700... Today's figure is 6230.. That's 12,000 new cases in the last 2 days! Am I a little bit behind the times here..? but that seems a helluva lot of new infections.. roughly 40,000 over the last week... And the 'powers that be' are still allowing inter-provincial travel on buses etc.. It's gonna get worse before it get's better!
  12. Years ago I asked the Q. "Why, in Hua Hin do youths fly round on motorbikes with no lights on? But more-so at weekends..? The answer I got was (& btw this fact is true to some extent).. The boy-racers have taken out the alternator from their engines, thus gaining power due to the lack of magnetic 'drag'.. so they come out, with a fully charged battery, and buzz round on 'total loss', then slink home when power fades. Lack of No. plates is an easy one to work out... Underage, no licence, tax, test, insurance...But fear not 'cos the powers-that-be are gonna crack down on the size of food delivery boxes.. so that makes the roads safe again!
