Thailander Webzine – Volume 1

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

Welcome To Thailander Webzine!

BANGKOK THAILANDWho is a Thailander?  A Thailander is very simply any person who likes Thailand.  I coined the expression in order that we can feel we are all part of a very special group of people.  And, we are special people!  Don’t worry, because if you like Thailand you are automatically a Thailander.  This newly launched “Thailander Webzine” will be posted in addition to my Wednesday weekly editions of Thailand Night Fever

(The photo of Wat Arun was taken by Annie).

Welcome fellow Thailander!

How Big Is Thailand?

Thailand has a land area of 513,115 square kilometres.  Thailand is approximately the same size as France, but it’s a lot more fun!

Mexican Fiesta At Sunrise Tacos

SUNRISE TACOS BANGKOKCinco De Mayo, or the Fifth Of May, is a day that is celebrated all over the world.  In Mexico, or wherever the culture of Mexico is celebrated, families, friends and neighbours gather to have a fiesta in honour of the event.  This festival observes the 1862 victory of 4,000 ill-equipped Mexicans over 8,000 well-equipped French invaders!  The battle known as the battle of Puebla took place on (you guessed it) May 5th.  Today, all is forgiven, with fiestas planned in Mexico and in many communities around the world. Gringos who have little idea why they are coming to a Cinco De Mayo celebration are happy to celebrate the day and join in the fun and parties on May 5th. 

Cinco De Mayo is this Monday and Sunrise Tacos is ready to give their guests a fiesta of their own!  Festivities will include a giant frozen margarita with flavours of Lime, Mango and Fresh Strawberry.  You also will get to keep the giant souvenir glass!  This Margarita by-the-yard (800 ml or 27 ounce) glass comes with three shots of tequila and one shot of triple sec, along with the freshly squeezed juice for only 199 Baht + Vat. (50% off the price at Sukhumvit Soi 12).  This offer is valid on Monday, May 5th at the Sukhumvit Soi 12 and Siam Paragon branches.  Cheers!

To celebrate this fun holiday and all the tasty meals that go with it, for every 500 Baht your party spends on food at Sunrise Tacos that day, you will get one FREE “I Love Tacos” or “I  Love Burritos” shirt (valued at 250 Baht). This offer is valid for the Emporium, Siam Paragon and Sukhumvit Soi 12 locations, and is valid on Monday when you call for delivery at 02-229-4851 or order online at – http://www.chefsxp.com/home.php?manufacturers_id=98

You will be pleased to know that the restaurant, delivery service and takeaway service is 24 hours a day.

Mexican food is a huge part of celebrating Cinco De Mayo, so be sure to celebrate it at Sunrise Tacos, for one of the biggest fiestas of the year.

Pattaya Bars Are Closed Tomorrow

TIGER BEER IN THAILANDSorry to have to tell you this news, but the bars in Pattaya are CLOSED tomorrow.  Unfortunately, Saturday, May 3rd coincides with the local elections in Pattaya.  I want you guys to be aware of this, so that you can plan accordingly.  Also, you need to know that this only affects the Pattaya nightspots.  The rest of Thailand’s nightspots remain unaffected on May 3rd.

The decision to close the bars in Thailand, because of the local elections is a strange one to say the very least.  However, fighting it is futile and furthermore, trying to understand it is impossible!  We can’t do anything about it, so we might as well learn to live with it.

Late Closing Hours Reinstated In Pattaya

The good news for Pattaya is that the authorities have reinstated the late closing hours.  Once again, the Pattaya go-go bars can stay open until at least 3:00am and some of the discos and clubs are open until cockcrow.

The situation in Bangkok is also changing.  A nightclub owner told me that his club can now stay open until 2:00am.  They were being closed at midnight.  I dare say that nightclubs across Thailand have lost a lot of money. 

HOORAY!  Bangkok nightspots including Nana Plaza can now stay open until at least 2:00am.  About time too!

Dave The Rave’s Birthday Bash

BUDDHIST FLOWER GARLANDSI have to say that my birthday bash on Wednesday, April 30th was very enjoyable this year.  I was given a lovely birthday cake from Angelwitch Go-Go Bar (coffee flavour), plus a bottle of JW Black Label, a bottle of tequila, plus a special present from Matt and Pim, the co-owners of Angelwitch.  My friends surprised me with presents, which included a super Manchester United T-shirt from Leigh.  I was also given a special bottle of Crown Royal whisky from Mr Ed my webmaster.  There were lots of drinks and not forgetting plenty of hugs and kisses from the girls in Angelwitch.  Considering it is low season, I was very grateful that so many guys made a special visit to Angelwitch for my birthday. In addition, my phone was full of SMS messages and I have a backlog of emails to work through.  I was touched by your kindness.  This was one of the best birthdays I have ever had.  I wish to thank you all for making my 45th birthday so special.  Cheers!

NANA PLAZA – WELCOME TO THE NEON JUNGLE

EVE X ZONE GO-GO BAR - PATTAYA - THAILANDThis news might come as something of a surprise to you, but the owners of Nana Plaza have been digging into their pockets.  According to the Nana Plaza management (Nana Castle), the escalator next to Lucky Luke’s Bar inside Nana Plaza should be operational in about one week.  The new escalator is now operational.  Apparently, the job was finished before expected – that is a shock by Thai building standards!  It has not been repaired, but instead it has been replaced by a brand new escalator.  For those of you who are not keen on using lifts, or stairs, the new escalator will be an excellent alternative.  By installing the new escalator, I think it will please everybody, but especially the disabled.  Fellow internet columnist Baron Bonk should be thrilled with the new escalator.  We can now send dear ole Baron Bonk up to greater heights!  Combined with a clear pathway at the entrance to Nana Plaza, it will be much easier to enter and exit, plus go up to the middle level.

Recently I have spoken to Khun Num who runs Rainbow 1 and Rainbow 3, about the old Farang Connection.  (If you cannot quite remember, Farang Connection was located next door to Rainbow 3 on the middle level in Nana Plaza).  If you did not know, Khun Num has taken over the lease and is currently building a Thai restaurant there.  The building work is progressing steadily as we speak.  The new owner has hinted that he thinks he will just sell Thai food.  I am sure that it is not easy, or cheap to hire a chef who can cook both Eastern and Western cuisine to international standards.  More interestingly, with some of the hot babes that will be dining here, it definitely will not be your average Thai noodle shop!

DAVE’S NIGHTSEEING TOURS – SUNRISE TO SOI COWBOY

SOI COWBOY - BANGKOK - THAILAND 007

For some time now, my friend Nick has wanted to hit the town with me.  Nick is currently based in Cambodia as a mine clearance specialist.  Obviously, any day off from the minefields would be relaxing, but I wanted to introduce Nick to some places that he has not visited before.  I took a night off from my duties in Angelwitch Go-Go Bar and I looked forward to the night ahead.  I wasn’t feeling 100% but I was determined to meet Nick and spend some quality time with a good friend.  Nick was about to experience one of my “nightseeing tours” and he seemed keen enough.  We arranged to meet at Sunrise Tacos Mexican Grill, which is located in the Leader Price Complex.  (For those not familiar with the Leader Price Complex, it is right next to Time Square Building between Sukhumvit, Soi 12 and Soi 14).  Several months ago, the owners of Sunrise Tacos decided to take over a vacant space directly opposite their shop.  At first, I was not sure what Greg Lange was intending to do with two Sunrise Tacos shops.  Was Greg intending to open two branches of Sunrise Tacos in the same complex?  This all became very clear when Greg explained the concept to me.  The original Sunrise Tacos is a small place, and it now provides a 24 hour takeaway and delivery service.  The new, larger premise has become a cosy restaurant that is stylishly designed and furbished.  The credit for the interior design goes to Mrs Lange.  Greg’s wife Nui has done a superb job!

CELEBRATING ST. PATRICK’S DAY IN BANGKOK (PART TWO)

NANA PLAZA - BANGKOK - THAILAND 002In conclusion, Bully’s Pub has a relaxing atmosphere that appeals to many different types of people.  Bully’s attracts singles, couples and even families.  It is an ideal place to meet friends, unwind after a long day, and/or enjoy live sports on a large TV screen.  Bully’s Pub is a bit more upmarket than other pubs in the area.  The prices tend to be higher and you will pay government tax on all food and beverage items.  Just to let you know where you stand.  It was time to leave the cosy comfort of Bully’s Pub…

CHALLENGING WEEK FOR DAVE THE RAVE

FLYING TO BANGKOK THAILANDThis passed week has been very hectic.  Unfortunately, my wife’s Grandmother (Yai in Thai) passed away.  She was a very sweet old lady of 84 years old (RIP Yai).  My wife was told to return home quickly and at least she was able to see Yai before she passed away.  I could not go to pay my respects to Yai, because I had to take care of things in Bangkok.  I have been busy being both dog sitter and housekeeper!  Also, I had to run Angelwitch every night because Matt was in Germany visiting his family.  This week’s “Thailand Night Fever” might be a bit shorter than usual.  So, if it’s short and sweet, I hope you find it an interesting read…  (more…)

ROMANTIC REMINDER – CUPID’S CALLING

Bangkok ThailandSome of you less romantic folks might need a reminder that it is Valentine’s Day tomorrow.  This is to jog your memory, because you know what us men are like for remembering special days.  Try not to forget a card, or gift for the special person in your life.  It is not too late to surprise your teerak (sweetheart) by arranging a romantic dinner for two.  Just by making the effort, I am sure that it will be appreciated.  We should get away with being a Romantic Romeo and not be accused of getting too soppy by our macho mates.  Wherever you spend this year’s Valentine’s Day, I sincerely hope you have a pleasant time.  Who will be your Valentine?
