Round up of the last visit….. – By Daywalker

Finally I got the hell out of Bangkok a few days ago…..  so what’s been happening?

The ‘gang’….   French Matt, Rick Masters, pmmp, BBB, Spats, Bubba, Jonas, Phoenix, Wombat and the Three Amigos, Dave the Rave, Big Tony and Stickman – I think that’s the lot?

Good to see you guys again and good to meet Phoenix.  He was a daily regular who soon realized my wealth of knowledge really only revolved around soi 4.  Sorry. It’s the world I live in!

The Plaza was looking fairly quiet.  I went into one gogo around 22:30 and was the 1st customer of the day. Anglewich was packed as usual.  Billboard looking not so busy and Las Vegas was empty.    Pretty Lady not doing much business – which I’ll get to in a moment.

The Bar – Business isn’t too bad at the moment.  Lots of new faces in the bar which is always good to see.   A few observations over the past few weeks….

1) Drunken guy knocking the sink off the wall in the toilet. (thanks! – no need to apologise)

2) Austrian guy telling us about a website (even wrote it down for us) called Facebook.  “it’s a amazing”

3) Old(er) Brit telling us about a bar that could play music on a thing called ‘something tube’ that has all kinds of old music and stuff.

4) Spats doing a runner on one of his bills.  I asked the girl how much it was – as I would be happy to pay.  She replied ‘2 drinks… and one for me!”    Can’t blame her for that!

5) Some old guy asking how much it’s cost to take my girlfriend – I asked how much it’d cost to make him lose all his excess weight and be 25 years younger.  Don’t think he was amused.

Mango Parties –

The Staff Party was good.  The staff had fun, which was the main thing.  Didn’t fall out of the Mango until 5am.

A pal from New Yoik arrived with his Brother who had never left the U.S in his life.  He was celebrating his 45th b’day.  Could the Mango throw him  party? Of course we can.  Off we trotted around the Plaza for a few drinks.  Into Pretty Lady where the girls (as ever) were very welcoming.  I asked them to make a fuss of the New Yoiker. They did.   I told the guys to go have a drink at Anglewitch and meet me back at the Mango.  Once they were out of there I asked to barfine 6 girls.  The Mamasan said no. Having already agreed this a few nights before I was a little confused.  She argued that I only asked for 5.  I pulled out my iPhone and showed her the list of numbers that I compiled and showed her that night – that she agreed to.   She said if I take 6 girls, then that doesn’t leave many for the other customers!   Looking at their line up – they had over 30 girls still.

The girls didn’t understand the Mamasan and were not happy.  I told them to decide which one of them was going to stay behind.  Just as I did, one of the old Pretty Lady girls and friend of the Mango arrived for work.  I told her the story and she got with another senior staff member for a chat.  Not sure what was said… but I left with 7 girls!

Back at the Mango the girls were ushered upstairs.  Awaiting them were 3 bottles of tequila, a couple of crates of beer and some very saucy uniforms.  Like superstars, the got stuck into them all.

Half an hour later the NYC boys arrived.  I invited them upstairs to take a look at the party room.  That’s when it all went turbo!

I can’t really explain what went on. All I can say is that the guys had an amazing time and Birthday boy will never forget it.  The girls were great and his camera is now full of pics for him to show his friends and to no doubt whack off over them. (the photos, not the friends)

Songkran…. Not much to say on this – as it’s on another thread.   A big thank-you to the Mango girls who worked each day and didn’t have the chance to enjoy.  Rest assured – in a month or so, I’ll be taking you all away for a few days somewhere to have some fun.  If anyone has any ideas on that – please share. Hua Hin someone said?

I am off out of BKK for another month.  Currently I am in Italy and already I am missing Bangkok.  WW is off to Italy soon I believe.  I hope you are not going to be in Milan.  There is chuff all here to do – and at 400 euros per night on a hotel, I’d expect at least 2 girls to be in there with me.

Carry on….

  1. Mamasans piss me off. I thought the whole idea is to sell the girls? You were buying.

    You should have asked for the Manager.

  2. 1) Sorry – cheque in the post

    4) I’m learning thai and came across this pearl –
    ‘kow mai hew nam’ = (s)he is not thirsty.

    Possibly the most useful phrase ever in a go-go?

  3. I’ve just finished laughing, pissing and shitting myself (a little bit) after your “how much to take my girlfriend” line! truly a good sport mate, since that was an ash tray in the face offense if ever there was one! lol!!!
    I was talking to a mate about cool little escape areas not too far from soi4 and he had dated a girl living in Si Racha. He said it was a fun, inexpensive little spot and only an hour-ish from BKK? Let me know and I’ll get more info?

    • I am used to people hitting on my girl. One guy who was clearly knocked back, pulled out his phone and asked her how to spell ‘motorcycle’. Thus looking like he was taking her number so as not to lose face. She isn’t that daft and didn’t humor him.

      I think it’s a trait of mongers around soi 4 I am sorry to say. There is always someone that wants to hit on the girl you are with, or returns to a gogo to pick up a girl for no other reason other than you have a thing for her.

      Sad, but true.

      nR – what kind of place is this you are talking about? I assume that the troops will want to sit on a beach and eat seafood for 18 hours without being disturbed. Or a bbq. Maybe even a private villa resort somewhere would be an idea?

    • In Milan doing a bit of shopping. It’s hard to find clothes for my dwarf-like frame.

      Also… I heard that WW was coming over here, so thought I’d check it out and see what all the fuss is about.

      It’s been pissing down since I got here. Not a happy bunny.

  4. Still laughn, never understood myself, ten million girls and someone wants to hit on yours, mate Davo comming back from Hua Hin soon, will let you know his observations, when he sobers up.

  5. Sometimes its hard for me too understand why you all leave Thailand on vacations when you all live in Paradise.
    Then you are so dissppointed Milan has f-all to do except for the duomo and of course if you like Seria A.
    Go to Lake Como and enjoy the scenery.
    Otherwise go south to Siena it really is a wonderful place.
    Safe Travels

    • DS… there are two types of places.

      1) Places that you pay to go to.
      2) Places that you get paid to go to.

      Thailand falls into category 1. Milan (for me) falls into category 2

      I must admit, traveling in and out of Thailand so often does give me an appreciation of the place. After 3 weeks of staying in Bangkok, I want to rip peoples heads off and won’t leave the apartment due to being pissed off at the state of the sidewalks.

  6. @ DW – It’s been said before by other peeps that you have a more or less perfect relationship with BKK – In for a few weeks out for a few weeks – repeat.
    I am chomping at the bit to get back in a few weeks time, but I know after three weeks in paradise I shall also be chomping at the bit to get the f**k out again
    🙂

  7. You may be surprised to know that the drunken fool who knocked the sink off the wall was still out drinking some 6 hours later. Some stamina. Or did you give him a taste of that mild sauce to perk him up?

  8. I agree, the best way to enjoy Thailand is by having your visit have an expiration date, and the knowledge that you will return. It’s a great destination for 3-4 week vacations, but not for a permanent stay.

    I always felt that the guys trading in their lives in the real world, in order to teach English on a subsistence salary, have something seriously wrong with them. “I couldn’t take the rat race anymore … “. Sure buddy, you don’t even believe that yourself.

  9. Probably half the guys who read this blog live and work in Thailand. Offhand, I can’t think of any one of them that I know who live on “subsistence salaries” and very few of them who would rather live in what you call the “real world”. In fact, a good many of the guys who live here do the kind of work that allows them, like Daywalker, to live a five-star and first-class life.

    People make choices. Being contemptuous of people who make different choices than you, and tossing out general insults at a group of people you don’t know, seems ill considered.

    I can understand the attraction, for you, of living elsewhere and visiting Thailand to spend time with bargirls a couple of times per year. It’s a shame that you don’t have the ability to understand that Thailand can offer a pleasant full-time home to thousands of foreigners, like me, who choose to live here.

  10. If I had ‘full spectrum’ fulfilment in one place I’d probably stay there but I just have too much going on back in Blighty … I would, if i could, probably visit slightly more often than my three or four times a year but at the moment I find it a reasonably harmonious balance the way it is. I have just as strong an urge at the end of my visit to get back to the UK as I have to get out to Thailand in the first place. I am pretty sure I couldn’t replicate the buzz I get from my work if I tried to do it remotely and of course family and friends are strong anchor. Thai life and my friends out there pull me back to the land of smiles just as strongly once a quarter
    Just call me Mr Indecisive
    🙂

  11. Oh Werewolf, how come I am not the least bit surprised that you, of all people, jumped all over that comment of mine – ignoring my carefully chosen and very specific qualifiers in favor of your soapbox.

    I’m sorry that you felt personally targeted by a comment that had nothing to do with you.

  12. carefully worded:

    “It’s a great destination for 3-4 week vacations, but not for a permanent stay.”

    “…have something seriously wrong with them.”

    “Sure buddy, you don’t even believe that yourself.”

    jumping all over someone:

    “tossing out general insults at a group of people you don’t know, seems ill considered.”

    ‘It’s a shame that you don’t have the ability to understand that Thailand can offer a pleasant full-time home to thousands of foreigners, like me, who choose to live here.”

    Shit Daffy, you’re funnier than Penfold. You’re ‘carefully worded’ comment is a broad based insult to anyone who chooses to live in Thailand. My reply was, as usual, polite and restrained.

    Your comment says that Thailand offers nothing to anyone who would stay here permanently. That’s the theme. Nothing to do with me? That’s everything to do with me.

  13. Dear Werewolf,

    Seriously, you still sound like an old woman – if you have a personal issue, take it to email.

    • I think we need to stress here that there are two types of English Teacher in Thailand. The legitimate, respectable(?) English Teacher like our honorable friends, and then there is the cheap, balloon chasing mother-fuckers who give the others a bad name!

  14. Daffy – Last time I heard you mention “old woman” you were saying you didn’t know what it meant. Glad I could assist with your education.

    You were the one who opened the topic; just because you’re embarrassed about it now, don’t instruct me to take it to email. I’ll write comments here until Daywalker tells me I can’t. I can understand, though, why your embarrassed about what you wrote.

    Your words: “It’s a great destination for 3-4 week vacations, but not for a permanent stay.”

    That’s nothing to do with anyone teaching on a “subsistence salary”, it’s simply an unwarranted blanket statement that insults everyone who chooses to live here full time.

    You should simply say your sorry to everyone else besides me that reads this blog and lives in Thailand, and learn to be more careful with what you say in the future. I don’t need an apology; I’ll be pleased just to know that I’ve been able to assist with your education again.

    • WW… I have to step in here and make a calling on this. If you are going to use the term ‘your’ meaning ‘you are’, then please use an apostrophe. I’ve seen a couple of them in there and I just can’t tolerate this kind of behavior. 😆

      Carry on.

  15. WW: “That’s nothing to do with anyone teaching on a “subsistence salary”, it’s simply an unwarranted blanket statement that insults everyone who chooses to live here full time.”
    —–
    Honni soit qui mal y pense.

    The only one reading too much into a statement that wasn’t even directed at him, or others, is you – for whatever reasons or insecurities you might harbor about your English teacher career.

    WW: “Daffy – Last time I heard you mention “old woman” you were saying you didn’t know what it meant. Glad I could assist with your education.”
    —–
    Obviously, since you’re *that* sort of English teacher.

    DW: “The legitimate, respectable(?) English Teacher like our honorable friend Mr.Wolf, and then there is the cheap, balloon chasing mother-fuckers who give the others a bad name!”
    —–
    That was my point of qualifying that particular kind of “English Teacher” in my statement as “… to teach English on a subsistence salary” … though, maybe I should have qualified further with “… in order to be closer to an easy supply of hookers” – though I fear WW’s fragile ego would then still feel particularly targeted.

    I used to moderately enjoy WW’s various efforts at short-lived blogging, and brushed it off when those who know him well kept telling me that he’s really a jerk. It’s nice, though, to see WW confirm these observations diligently, and remove any doubt.

    “I’ll write comments here until Daywalker tells me I can’t.”
    —–
    Knock yourself out, boy – you’ll be shouting to an empty room from now on. Toodles.

  16. Duck; As always, you can’t read and understand a simple point.

    You can’t run away from what you wrote. As you are so fond of saying… “it’s up there.” All you gotta do is read it.

    “I agree, the best way to enjoy Thailand is by having your visit have an expiration date, and the knowledge that you will return. It’s a great destination for 3-4 week vacations, but not for a permanent stay.

    Since you missed it the first couple of times, I’ll repeat what I said in my initial comment: your theme is that your way of enjoying Thailand is the right one. In your world, people who live here permanently don’t know how to do it right. (As I see it, you either think that living in Thailand is a mistake, or you disavow what you wrote.) Take a look at each of my replies to you… each one clearly enunciates this one simple message.

    Again, as in our past exchanges, my initial response (and in fact, my every response) to your comment was politely worded.

    But, in a pattern that I’ve gotten used to, you responded initially with bombast (“you, of all people, jumped all over that comment of mine”.)

    True to past form, that response and your following messages have never once addressed the point of my comments to you, but increasingly take a shotgun approach of trying to confuse the issue by talking about anything except my point, and — when that doesn’t work — you degenerate into rambling efforts to insult and name-call.

    On the point of insulting and name-calling (“I…brushed it off when those who know him well kept telling me that he’s really a jerk”), it’s clear that you never understood what you read on the old blog. Nobody was ever quicker to describe me as an asshole than I was, myself. If it’s a surprise to you that I’m a dick, then you couldn’t have been following the text of my rather simply-written posts. If you wanna bruise my fragile ego, you’re gonna hafta do better than that. And I thought you were an edjicated man.

    While we’re on the point, though, I guess I ought to ask: should I believe my friends — the ones who’ve met you? Should I believe what they say about you?

    I wonder if what they say about you is any more flattering than what they say about me?

    Or if it’s any less true…

    Oh, yeah, sorry, I forgot… empty room.

    WW

  17. I had a couple of good comments, or at least I thought so, but as the room is empty I’ll just keep ’em to myself.

  18. But I’m scared of the dark..always worried a big Werewolf might come outta the shadows .. 🙁 …or maybe a duck!!!!!!
