Bangkok Bomb Blasts – 23/04/2010

DEADLY GRENADE ATTACK ON SKYTRAIN STATION

BANGKOK BOMB BLAST UPDATETRAVEL WARNINGS 23/04/2010 – Several countries have issued Thailand Travel Warnings.  However, Germany advises that visitors to Bangkok should avoid Silom district and any groups of anti-government protesters.  At this stage, I agree with Germany.  Meanwhile, America, Britain and Australia continue to send out ‘broken record’ Travel Warnings.  No matter where the actual problem areas are located, they constantly send out Thailand Travel Warnings.  This makes it a very difficult task for foreigners to evaluate the situation.  (more…)

Wishing You A Happy New Year

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

We all look forward to 2010 with great optimism, or do we?  Some people may speculate that 2010 will be a year of global economic recovery.  I would like to think that way, but I feel it will be a year of survival rather than recovery.  (more…)

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN LAST ORDERS PLEASE

Compared to Thailand the nightlife scene in Farangland is not as exciting, or enjoyable by light years.  But, in Farangland you at least know what time the bars, pubs and clubs will close.  (more…)

NANA PLAZA – WELCOME TO THE NEON JUNGLE

There are early indications that the forthcoming high season in Nana Plaza is likely to be better than expected.  Well, this at least applies to the most popular go-go bars.  Some go-go bars in Nana Plaza are very busy for the beginning of October.  For instance, last Friday night was one of the busiest nights in Angelwitch for the entire year.  The show ‘n’ go-go bars are continuing to do a brisk trade at weekends.  The main show bars in Nana Plaza are, Angelwitch, Spankys and Hollywood Carousel.

ALL QUIET ON THE EASTERN FRONT

Tough times are facing the nightlife scene in Thailand, as the majority of bars, go-go bars and nightclubs are feeling the pinch in one way or another. There are fewer foreign visitors frequenting Thailand’s nightlife scene than previous years and less bar girls in Bangkok’s multitude of bars. Out of Thailand’s main nightlife regions, sections of Pattaya, Koh Samui, Hua Hin and Chiang Mai appear to be hit hard by the downturn. (more…)

SPICE CLUB REACHES A CLIMAX

 

The popular nightspot Spice Club has been renamed Climax.  Word is that taxi drivers were taking Spice customers to Spicy instead.  I think it was wise to change the name of the club in this case.  What with Spice, Spicy and Bossy, it was getting confusing for all concerned.  To celebrate the rebirth there is a Climax Party this Tuesday, September 29th.  There will be live music, international DJs, coyote showgirls and your first drink is free.  Spice it up all you want, but we would sooner have a climax!

GETTING MARRIED TO A THAI

THAI GIRLS - BANGKOK - THAILANDThere are some decisions in life that require serious consideration.  One such decision is whether to get married.  If we make the wrong decision, it can cause us extreme emotional and financial suffering.  This suffering might last for many years to come.  By taking a closer look at this subject, we can all remind ourselves how important the commitment of marriage really is.  It would be very foolish not to take marriage seriously.  Despite the fact that it has almost become a trend to get divorced, marriage is about entering a partnership with the person you love and care for.  The vows that one recites, emphasise a special commitment to a loved one, who is to become (theoretically speaking) our life partner.  It is a sad fact that in Farangland most marriages fail.  This is so often such a worrying problem, because children are caught up in the crossfire.  In some extreme cases, the children are used as ammunition to win divorce cases.  This is nothing short of sick, but in this era of dog-eat-dog, it is often a matter of “win at all costs.”   These are the facts of the matter, which is a sad reflection of today’s society.

Daves Raves – Buddhist Holiday

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

SUNRISE TACOS - BANGKOK - THAILANDHello Guys, I have been thinking about you recently.  Hey, now don’t get worried, because I’m not getting gay here!  I appreciate the large audience that this website has created over the past 18 months.  Therefore, I want to keep you updated more regularly.  Recently, I have been wondering about how I could update the website more often.  You may have noticed that I have created several new pages.  At first, I was so proud to see those new sections up online for the entire world to see.  I thought, “Great stuff!”  Then I thought about the time and effort involved to update them all.  Oops!  I hadn’t taken that into consideration.  For example, if you look at the alphabetical listings, you will see that some are more updated than others are.  Please excuse me for that, but there are only so many hours in a day!  The good thing is that I can keep posting updates and those A-Z listings will eventually fill up with information.  It just takes time that’s all.  Last month this website received the most hits in over a year.  Thanks for all your support; this is what makes it all worthwhile.  Cheers!

BUDDHIST HOLIDAY – MONDAY, MAY 19th

BUDDHIST TEMPLE - BANGKOK - THAILANDYou need to be aware that this Monday, May 19th is a Buddhist Holiday.  Wan Visakha Bucha is one of the most important Buddha Days on the Thai calendar.  From the information I have gathered, you will probably find that most nightlife areas across Thailand are likely to be closed on May 19th out of respect.  But, if you ask around you might get lucky.  Remember that restaurants and some pubs will still be open.  In conclusion, remember that the vast majority of go-go bars, beer bars and nightclubs will be closed.  If anything chances closer to May 19th I will post another update.

STEPHEN HENDRY ROADSHOW

STEPHEN HENDRY - SEVEN-TIME WORLD SNOOKER CHAMPIONFrom this Monday, May 19th until May 23rd seven-time World Snooker Champion Stephen Hendry will arrive as a guest of John Smith’s Bitter and Strongbow Draught Cider.  Stephen who comes from Edinburgh in Scotland likes Thailand and he has accumulated many Thai fans.  At one time, Stephen Hendry was top of the world rankings for a record eight consecutive years.  Stephen was also the youngest ever World Snooker Champion at the age of 21.  Stephen will be making a series of one-hour appearances at pubs in Bangkok, Pattaya and Koh Samui.  Stephen will make himself available for a questions and answers session, as well as some exhibition frames.  John Smith’s Extra Smooth Bitter and Strongbow Cider will be available for a special discount price at each venue.

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 – AN EARLY TREK INTO THE NEON JUNGLE

NANA PLAZA BANGKOKIf you are looking for a place in Nana Plaza to start your “booze cruise” there are a few options.  I think that most of you guys know that Big Dog’s Bar is a popular choice.  Not just because of its location, but also because Big Dog’s is genuinely a good place to hang out.  With two shifts of bargirls, why wouldn’t it be?  Big Dog’s Bar is a favourite choice of oasis for bestselling author StephenDEAD MEN Leather.  For the uninitiated, Stephen Leather is the author of Private Dancer.  While we are on the subject, if you enjoyed Private Dancer, you might want to read Confessions Of A Bangkok Private Eye.  Steve was the ghost-writer for a series of real private eye investigations in Bangkok by Warren Olson.  Some people are unaware that Steve is a bestselling thriller writer.  His latest thriller is Dead Men.  Steve has just returned to Bangkok for a break away from Farangland.
