The Funny Side of Pattaya

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 ...

Hospital silence? Queen Savang Vadhana Memorial Hospital is incredibly noisy.

Most people who have a health public insurance are going to Queen Savang Vadhana Memorial Hospital in Sriracha. Rich people are going to Bangkok hospital, but the hospital of the Queen is free for Thai (and less expensive for foreigners). In Europe and USA we like to say "Hospital Silence". It ...

Laundry refills consumer screw up…

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?

Given 24h to leave her room.

Given 24h to leave her room.

Today we helped this girl to move to another room in emergency. She had a "room for staff" but she decided to leave her job for various understandable reasons. The human resource from the xxx (cannot say) group asked her 7000 baht or she needed to leave under 24h. 7000 baht is about what she was ...

Worse quesadillas ever! At Foodland T21

Worse quesadillas ever! At Foodland T21

I try very hard to eat at Foodland (Took Lae Dee) restaurant inside Terminal 21, but the cook there are not trained. Everything apart fried rice taste awful. The worse is probably the attempt to make Tex-Mex food, check the pictures. So greedy in cheese for 139 baht!, and where is the chicken? All ...
