Khaosan Road Clear The Sidewalks

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017
khao san bangkok - Khaosan Road Clear The Sidewalks

TRENDY TOURIST AREA KHAOSAN ROAD BANGKOK

Street vendors operating in Khao San Road have been instructed to clear the sidewalks down this popular and trendy tourist area.

This is following a recent meeting with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA). The street vendors were told to move their stalls from the sidewalk onto the road for a period of one week. The trial commences on September 12th.

The concept is proposed to satisfy everybody and BMA District Chef Wutichai Bunyasit said, “We want to return all footpaths to the people.”

Daves Raves – I think this is a sensible solution, so let’s hope it happens.

Never Hurry A Curry!

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Kiwi Pub Curry & Pint Night

When I lived in England, I have had my fair share of curry nights I call tell you. In fact, Indian Curry is now Britain’s most popular food. It beats Fish & Chips, Roast Dinners and Chinese Takeaway hands down.

I remember an Indian chef explaining to me the art of making a great curry. He said with a wry smile, “Never hurry a curry!” Well that just cracked me up!

The Kiwi Sports Bar & Grill hosts “Monday Curry Night” with a choice of Chicken, or Beef Jalfrezi, Rogan Josh, or Tikka Masala. It comes with Steamed Rice, Garlic Pita Bread, and a choice of a Heineken Pint, or a Tiger Pint. You get all that for just 279฿

Stickmania (April 13th 2007)

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Written By Dave The Rave

Throughout the infinite realms of time and cyberspace there lurks an extremely powerful amorphous creature that is an almighty force to be reckoned with. This infinite amorphous creature that engulfs many of our lives is the limitless universe of the internet. Although no one person actually owns the internet, Bill Gates has given it a damned good try – bless him! Without any doubt whatsoever the internet has transformed and revolutionized how freely and effectively information is communicated today. Like a giant pouncing tiger the web world leapt into the millennium and multitudes of websites have emerged as a result. Therefore, this transformation has provided us with enormous information resources and that means massive amounts of information about Thailand. In the 1980’s when I first visited Thailand, there was no such online information because of course it did not exist. We simply followed the recommendations of a friend and perhaps read the odd travel guide. How things change hey? Nowadays every budding blogger has jumped on the bandwagon – whether we really want to know about Bill’s fanatical train-spotting, or Mary’s bone-crushing rock cakes! Totally captivating weblogs, or not as the case may be, it is all out there on the internet.

soi cowboy may 2011 - Stickmania (April 13th 2007)

Whether you love or loathe webmaster columnists, there is one Thailand website that stands out predominantly. Crystal clearly Stickman’s website is the most popular of its genre. For many Thailand readers it is an essential information and news source that has its own dedicated cult following. Ever since I first encountered “Stickman’s Guide to Bangkok” I admit that I was hooked. I think that what makes this contagious creature tick is to do with the fact that the enigmatic Stickman is extremely engaging. Some guys have planned their entire Thailand trips and in some cases planned the BIG move from Farangland to Thailand, entirely from Stickman’s website. Without noticing it at first, slowly but surely Stickman draws you into his realm. “Welcome to my lair”, said the spider to the fly. It’s a scary thought isn’t it?

Personally, I for one remain both very pleased and so relieved to see the return of the main sections of Stickman’s website. What I do know is that I speak with great confidence, when I state that I am most certainly not the only person who shares these sentiments. The mighty army of Stickman fans (and a few foes too) were on the edge of their computer seats for four long months, as they were forced to await the outcome of let us say Stickman’s sojourn away from the cyber scene. Did Stickman’s cyberspacecraft come crashing down? No, it did not but the disruption caused by a certain “Stickman Stalker” just goes to prove what a powerful tool or weapon the internet really can be. Time is a great healer though and here we all are again. Although not quite back where we started, nonetheless we continue on our exciting journey through various time zones, and through the infinite realms of cyberspace. We have lift off… “Warp Factor II Captain Stickman!”

If we take a trip back in time a lot of readers would tune in to read Nite Owl, which used to be the ramblings of Bernard Trink. The old Nite Owl penned his weekly column for decades until he was finally axed by the powers that be at the Bangkok Post. Nite Owl had some fans but most people read Trink’s weekly solely in order to seek Thailand nightlife news. As a result of Nite Owl getting the chop there was a dark, void abyss, but then following that exit came the entrance of the modern day Thailand columnist – none other than Stickman. Incidentally, approaching six years ago saw the introduction of the enormously popular “Stickman Weekly” and this new weekly column took off like a cyberspace rocket.

OK, now fast forward to April 2007 and the “cyberspace chameleon” returns, but under another guise – Stick Mark II. Who is this mysterious Stick Mark II? Much speculation surrounds the identity of Stick Mark II, but you can be assured that Stickman will be watching like a hawk. Whether Stickman is editing it, writing it, or not writing it, he has returned and to me that is the main thing.

I will let you into a little secret that I persuaded Stickman that the Photo Gallery should be updated. The eagle-eyed among you Stickman fans will notice that a NEW Photo Gallery called “Thailand Characters Photo Gallery 2” has been added. In addition to this latest gallery full of terrific images, the entire Stickman Weekly archived columns for 2006 have returned. This means that avid readers can take a trip back in time to Stickmanland. It would appear that in observing my counterpart, I notice that Stick Mark II (whoever he/she is) has integrated images in with the text in his new weekly column. Stick Mark II’s very first column contained a lovely little travelogue about a sojourn to Isaan, that was complimented by some truly picturesque images. This gives a visual impression of an online magazine – may I say very well done!

On a personal note, as an ambitious newcomer to the web world I want everybody to know that Stickman has been very helpful, offering sound advice. My own website DaveTheRaveBangkok.com was launched in November 2006 and Stickman has been completely unselfish in offering me invaluable advice. Us online columnists/webmasters slave away to update our websites and I can tell you that it takes a HUGE amount of time and effort. As friends of mine have pointed out, we just hope that the masses appreciate this free information service. Take what free information, knowledge, and/or entertainment you can and if you are not satisfied then simply change channel. At times there can be some extremely offensive things written about webmasters, but mostly these “keyboard warriors” are invisible. Who are these people? Of course we like to receive constructive criticism, but “babble from the padded cell” is never useful to anybody whatsoever. It is so easy to “talk the talk” but few dare to “walk the walk” and show us how they think it is supposed to be done. Sometimes there is so much pent up venom in the emails that we cannot possibly comprehend what they are trying to say at all. That is clearly their problem. By all means readers should write constructive criticism to webmasters, but please be clear and specific in the message you are trying to convey.

THE STRIP GOGO BAR PATPONG SOI 2

Running a website about Thailand can often be a mixture of pleasure and pain. However, for the most part we enjoy what we do, because we know that the majority appreciate and welcome our online service. I firmly believe that for all the websites out there, you will not find many very good Thailand websites. In terms of accurate, up-to-date and informative Thailand websites, they remain very few and far between. We should therefore appreciate the likes of Stickman who has diligently churned out a weekly column year after year. Believe somebody in the know, when I say that it is no easy task. This is why I have the utmost respect for Stickman’s dedication and hard work over all these years. Stickman can at times be a controversial columnist, but speaking from experience, as a person Stickman is a real gentleman. As for Stickman’s success, the growth of his readership can only be termed as remarkable. Long live Stickmania!

Stickman’s Thoughts:

Gosh Dave, you have me positively blushing.

But you’re right, maintaining a website is a lot of effort, to say nothing of all of the other parts of our sites. You meet some great people along the journey, and a few ratbags as well. But that is all part of the ride!

The Euro Hits Record High

Friday, September 1st, 2017

euro rises to record high - The Euro Hits Record High

The euro has hit $1.20 for the first time since January 2015 as the prospect of a US interest rate rise recedes.

The economic damage caused by “Hurricane Harvey” has led financial analysts to believe the US central bank will not want to risk curbing economic growth.

American experts say, a rise in interest rates tends to draw investors to a currency, taking advantage of the higher returns.

Meanwhile, the euro has itself been gaining against a range of currencies, as the economy improves in the eurozone.

Against the dollar, the euro has risen by almost 15% so far this year. In addition, the euro continues to strengthen against the UK pound and the Thai baht. 

I am no expert, but it might be time to buy some euros.

Is It Time To Visit Pattaya?

Monday, August 28th, 2017

I have been visiting Pattaya since the 1980’s and I used to live there annually for a few months. The consensus of Bangkok expats states, while it is great to get out of The Big Mango sometimes, they can only stand a few days in Pattaya.

I still think Pattaya is a great place to have fun and blow off some steam, or get something else blown off! 🙂

EVEN MODERN PATTAYA IS TRANQUIL AT THE RIGHT TIME OF DAY

My nickname for Pattaya is Pleasure Playground, with more to see and do than just go on a ‘booze cruise’ all over the city. If you don’t like big crowds of rowdy boozers, head for Jomtien Beach, which is home to quieter bars and restaurants.

Pattaya Bangkok - Is It Time To Visit Pattaya?

HARD TO BELIEVE PATTAYA WAS ONCE JUST A TRANQUIL FISHING VILLAGE

Some guys complain about how Walking Street has become so brash and bawdy, but nobody is forced to visit. There are tons of bars and restaurants all over the city, so many that we are spoiled for choice. Research the Internet, see which venues get good reviews and search for places that suit your needs.

Mayweather VS McGregor (WBC Title)

The Game Mayweather McGregor - Mayweather VS McGregor (WBC Title)

MAYWEATHER VS McGREGOR

The burning question this weekend is who will win the WBC Super Welterweight Title Fight? Will it be Super Slick Floyd Mayweather, or Mad Irishman Conor McGregor?

Dubbed ‘The Money Fight’ these two fighters are set for an enormous pay day on Sunday, August 27th. In fact, it’s such HUGE money that it’s extremely obscene!

For the multitudes of fight fans around the world, we want to see an action-packed World Title Fight, this is what matters to us.

Chequers Pub Mayweather V McGregory - Mayweather VS McGregor (WBC Title)

CHEQUERS PUB SPECIAL BOXING BREAKFAST

So, where do you watch Mayweather vs McGregor in Bangkok? Well, I suggest Stumble Inn Bar (Sukhumvit Soi 4), Chequers Pub (Sukhumvit Soi 4), The Kiwi Pub (Sukhumvit Soi 8), The Australian (Sukhumvit Soi 11), or last but by no means least The Game (Sukhumvit Soi 9). There’s five good choices, so pick what you prefer. All of these Bangkok bars, are great theme pubs in their own right.

Mayweather vs McGregor Fight - Mayweather VS McGregor (WBC Title)

STUMBLE INN BAR – DOORS OPEN 09:00 FOR HAPPY HOUR & FOOD IS AVAILABLE

They state when their pub doors open, but the Mayweather vs McGregor fight will not start before 10:00 AM. It’s expected to start between 10:00-11:00 AM. Don’t get up at the crack of dawn, unless you are determined to get the best ringside seat!

I am looking forward to the Big Fight and I think this will be an exciting encounter of two great fighters. Will Mayweather box too clever, or will McGregor knock him out?

Nana Plaza Beer Garden

As fate has it, just as you approach the neon jungle it hammers down with rain. Well, you don’t have to worry, because the Nana Beer Garden has a large retractable roof. Never fear Nana Beer Garden is here!

Talking of large roofs, you will be completely protected from the rain at the newly opened Rajah Complex. Located further down Soi Nana, the Rajah Complex has a HUGE rooftop. It’s similar to those enormous Petrol Station roofs. While you sit at Hillary 1 Bar getting wet on the inside, you will be dry on the outside.

Another One Bites The Dust

I was not at all surprised to see that Night Witch Bangkok Bar has been completely dismantled inside. Let’s face it there was more atmosphere on the moon. It never took off and I heard from Stickboy that Khun Meow has taken it over. It is thought to become a pool bar. Good news for Soi Nana fans, because Hillary Group are good operators. I wish them good luck.

Still at Rajah Complex (for want of a better name), the Hillary Group recently launched Angels 4 Bar. It is located at the entrance, directly opposite the old Jools Bar. It’s a cosy bar with angels sitting pretty with their halos.

DJ Honey G At Black Pagoda Patong

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

It’s not often you will catch me shouting out about a DJ,  but Honey G is an exception. Not only a great DJ guaranteed to create a great vibe, but Honey G is certainly one hot little babe!

Regular readers will know I have taken many pictures of her, while a regular at EQ.  She is not only a great DJ who can get any crowd going but she is  always so friendly  to everyone she meets,  her and MC Sasha are a great team.

These days she is so popular she is often jetting off to Europe for gigs and is a regular at Bangkok’s top clubs like Club Insanity.

What’s great is this week (Friday 26th August) she will be playing at the Black Pagoda on Patpong.  This is one I might venture down to Patpong  for as it will be great to see Honey G playing in a venue I used to manage.

All the reports I am getting from people  is that the Black Pagoda has much improved over the last few months under a new manager who has brought upwards of 40 new girls in.  It does seem to be drawing the punters in with weekday nights seemingly better that usual. Many now reporting  this is  one of  the best venues on Patpong , as I understand the ladies do like to play.

Stay tuned for my weekly updates on Bangkok Nightlife.

Wild Full Moon Party In Bangkok

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

It’s a full moon  today, so it’s supposed to  be a good time to party, have sex, visit a psychiatric ward, or turn into a Werewolf depending on which urban legend you believe in.  Of course, there is no scientific evidence to show the full moon has any effect on our behaviour, but we know the moon does affect the tides and with our bodies being 75% water I suppose it’s possible?

That’s funny, because I can definitely feel gravity pulling me towards a pint tonight!

If you believe that your sex life is energised by a full moon you might want to take your chances at the full moon party at Bangkok Beat tonight (Thursday). The party includes a very tempting 99 baht Sang Som Whisky, (something for the ladies – thoughtful) and prizes for those who turn up in the best fancy dress. Somehow don’t think I’ll be winning that one!

I have always liked the live music at Bangkok Beat and it might worth checking out… cheaper than going to Koh Phangan 🙂

NO BOOZE AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT

Monday, July 18th, 2016

As many people are already well aware from midnight tonight there will be no drinking allowed in any of the bars, which carries on till Wednesday, due to the Buddhist Lent.

For non Buddhists who are screeching for a pint, there are still places serving alcohol in the Land Of Make-Believe.  Most upmarket hotels are not subject to the booze ban and can still serve at their bars and on Patpong and Silom many bars, and restaurants that serve food can also serve, albeit out of paper cups, or even coffee cups!

The two day Buddhist Holiday  coincides with yet another public holiday today, so for many Thais and expats, this is a five day holiday (counting the weekend), which  will no doubt see a lot of people taking the opportunity to leave town. Hey, can you blame them? With girls and customers lighter on the ground,  it might be a chance to catch up on old friends, finish that book you bought months ago, or try some new venues in a different part of town.

I myself will pop down to Patpong to catch up on  my old friend Guido at the fantastic G’s German restaurant and will likely swing by some of the bars on Patpong including my current favorite The Strip.

Stay tuned, as I will be updating my website more regularly. Thanks for visiting!
