The Funny Side of Pattaya

No bag day. More insanity. More stupidity.

The no bag day is every 1st Monday of the month and has the goal to make us accepting to buy bags instead of having them given for free. Not only you have to bring your bag (that you have to pay) but later on, you will have to buy bags for use for the trash. There is nothing about saving the Earth ...

Pollution powder recovers everything!

Pay attention and look around you. All the cars are covered with this powder that is looking like baby power or talc... but it is in fact the deposit of the pollution, the infamous 2.5pm particles. One night is enough to spread your car and if you do not touch your vehicle for a week, it will be ...

Happy New year, may you pay your staff more than $1/hour in 2019?

Pattaya is having a qualified staff crisis. Mostly due to the big company's greed who are not acknowledging the situation. Your Deluxe burger does not have tomatoes? Your steak is burn while you asked medium rare? You cannot eat because there is no one in the kitchen? You wait 30 min to get your ...

Thanks to the rain, the pollution went from 170 (197?) to 70!

Thanks to the rain, the pollution that was at dangerous levels (red!) went down to moderate! When the government will apply the law and stop these people who are burning their fields and their trash? The same thing happen every year at the same period, suffocating pollution coming from the farmers ...

Harbor total failure

Harbor total failure

I warned last year, Harbor is going to crash. Now it is over. 90% of the restaurants are closed, stay only a few phone shops, and a good air conditioning. It is well deserved, greed was powering the grand opening, most meals were at more than 200 baht, too expensive for a family designed mall. The ...

Laundry refills consumer screw up…

Better not buy these refills, they are complete scams, do not contain what is advertised, and in fact are costing more than the original bottle that they are supposed to refill. How corporation are bidding on consumer ignorance to make money? I had a one 900 Ml bottle that cost 110 baht and I ...

Soi Exite noisy disaster

Soi Exite noisy disaster

These music groups are awfully noisy (while hiding behind walls and asking for a payment to actually see the scene) and there is no control over how many watts are deployed but it is very loud 5 km away! If the sound pollution is not enough, these people always run away leaving the place full of ...

Is this enough to remind Thais drivers about road civility?

Thais are legendary known for their lack of civility. They are going first no matter what. Selfishness is the common attitude on the road, and the result is a very high number of accident. That's simple if you want to die in your vacation, you can either go do a  road trip in Syria, or drive in ...

Pollution

Pollution

The sky should be blue, but there is this haze instead. It smells like burn outside. What is  happening? Farmers are doing fires?
