  2. It's fair imo. Of course it's better customer service to return deposits, but the whole point of a deposit its reassurance you'll show up and pay the rest - he may of missed sales already for them dates. Personally if it happened as a repeat customer I'd never stay again... But on the otherside they're in their rights too.. But it just leaves a sour taste and probably costs them more in the long run.. But Thais don't think past 5 minutes ago.

    Having delved into people’s finances for the past 20 years, I would say that the median net wealth in UK does not appear to be £1m gbp. Even for retirees, if you multiply their pension by x20 to capitalise its value. A lot of people still have mortgage debt in their 50’s, which then means they have little to none investments. If you hit £1m you are definitely ahead of the curve.
  4. I´ve no idea about high season as I only visit Pattaya from April to November regular but I can confirm that the metioned Windmill is always packed with customers and the same is certainly true for PinUp as well. Regarding the high Bath I would like to remind that the number of tourist have risen during the first half of the current year compared to 2018. In my opinion Thailands transformation from a mongering to a family spot is working out pretty well.

  7. Pattaya –Local vendors have told the Pattaya News that residents have bought more sweaters and coats during cool weather in Pattaya this week. In fact, they have bought so many that many markets are having problems keeping them in stock. At Sutthawat Market people were buying second hand sweaters to wear during the cool weather.

    Net wealth includes all the wealth of the individual which includes property. Home ownership is one of the main contributors to net wealth and people who are in the median will nearly always own property (or have sold it). Get it? Net wealth is not evenly distributed amongst the population, therefore it is the mean that is distorted by a smaller number of extremely rich or poor people - not the median for a subset of people. The exact opposite of what you are saying. The median splits the data in two and takes this into account. You are talking about a very specific subset of people (old men who visit Pattaya) from data that is already highly skewed. For Australia, there is great inequality in the distribution of wealth. The lowest 20% of households, in terms of net worth, have a mean net worth of $35,200. In comparison, the mean net worth of the wealthiest 20% of households is 92 times more than that of the lowest 20% of households, at $3.2 million. The mean net worth of all households in Australia in 2017–18 was $1.0 million while the median was much lower at $558,900. Get it? So back to the questions that you don’t seem to be able to answer:

    Stay at multiple hotels?

    There is so much choice that I used to always try a different hotel on each visit, often 2 different hotels during a visit. I have narrowed it down to a few favourites and the choice is now often dictated by price and availability. Although always on the lookout for somewhere different.

    How do recruiters turn a girl on the fence

    Yes ofc that is a situation that is common. But can every women working in this industry be placed exactly in that category? The following is often what the media want it it to appear as for all thaiwomen doing this: - Economical desperation - Forced to take care of family - Is "forced" into prostitution - Suffer and take mental harm from this work - Have to fuck old fat men Is this the entire truth? Wages is higher in Sweden and we have social security. Its a generous welfare system even if some on the left here think its too cheap. Thats one factor. Another factor is that there is not a system of bars, massages etc where a women can turn too in order to sell sex. In Thailand they have a big industry where a women simply need to go and ask in a bar if sha can work there. Fewer women are selling sex so its much more easy to be identified in your town as someone who is a "whore". In Sweden its proberbly much more shamefull than in Thailand. In Thailand it seems more tolerated even if its still is seen as a low-status work. There seems to be a certain number of swedish women who travel abroad in order to sell sex. Some people have noted that in the planes to Dubai there is an unusualy high number of good looking swedish women. In Japan there a bars that only employ blondes. Being blonde and germanic is beautiful in Japan. But that is only what i have heard. But there is big money to be made here in Sweden for freelancers that are attractive.

    Apollo 13 by Jim Lovell & Jeffrey Kluger. . . @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse.. In April 1970, during the glory days of the Apollo space program, NASA sent Navy Captain Jim Lovell and two other astronauts on America's fifth mission to the moon. Only fifty-five hours into the flight of Apollo 13, disaster struck: a mysterious explosion rocked the ship, and soon its oxygen and power began draining away. Written with all the color and drama of the best fiction, APOLLO 13 (previously published as Lost Moon) tells the full story of the moon shot that almost ended in catastrophe. Minutes after the explosion, the three astronauts are forced to abandon the main ship for the lunar module, a tiny craft designed to keep two men alive for just two days. As the hours tick away, the narrative shifts from the crippled spacecraft to Mission Control, from engineers searching desperately for a way to fix the ship to Lovell's wife and children praying for his safe return. The entire nation watches as one crisis after another is met and overcome. By the time the ship splashes down in the Pacific, we understand why the heroic effort to rescue Lovell and his crew is considered by many to be NASA's finest hour. Now, thirty years after the launch of the mission, Jim Lovell and coauthor Jeffrey Kluger add a new preface and never-before-seen photographs to Apollo 13. In their preface, they offer an incisive look at America's waxing and waning love affair with space exploration during the past three decades, culminating only recently when the Apollo 13 spacecraft itself, long consigned to an aviation museum outside Paris, was at last returned to its rightful home in the United States. As inspiring today as it was thirty years ago, the story of Apollo 13 is a timeless tribute to the enduring American spirit and sparkling individual heroism.
  13. Did you read the 2 pages ? there was also another member who hadn’t been contacted, I think if you re read what the op is most disappointed with is the no contact from them. just my two cents worth is even after hearing there issue with emails is for a business to go since October not to contact a customer is pretty poor, read deano post.

    Wanton pregnancy. What do these girls have to gain.

    I'm already on the last page but someone mentioned something about big eyes. Girl I was with on our 3rd day together started talking about "baby with you." She mentioned "baby will have big eyes like you" so I guess eye size is something that's important over there. *shrugs*
  15. You know I sort of get where someone might worry about unrealistic expectations derived from porn if they are back in the west with their fat wife and 3 kids. But how the fuck can anyone think porn desensitizes them after getting a rim job from a fake-tit Asian porn star on soi 6 for 50 bucks? Seems to me if you are giving up porn for that reason, you ought to be giving up Pattaya, too.

    Thank you, its very frustrating for the owner because we have always prided ourselves on the service and amenities we gave at the guesthouse. Sometimes shit happens and mistakes are made and its unfortunate that people may have had their holidays disrupted by a comms breakdown and our failings at dealing with it quickly enough. We are still trying to establish the email to allow us access but google are taking their time but we hope to have it resolved asap. To anyone that is having issues with bookings etc please address your queries to [email protected] and we thank you for your patience.

    Stay at multiple hotels?

    Will always stay somewhere central ie LK metro area so everything within walking distance for some exercise . As not a walking street fan, happy to remian around bukkhao/chayapoon and LK at night with easy walk back. Also prices more favourable too.
  18. Oh, I really don't know! I came at different times of year, preferred different venues and my memory isn't that amazing lol I used to exclusively do Gogos and Insomnia, now I do mostly Soi 6 as times and prices have changed. I wasn't testifying, just comparing observations on the length of high season

    Please talk to the owner directly through the email and im sure he will put things right. I apologise on his behalf for the problems its caused you through no fault of your own.
  22. I did see that they have been locked out.. and no insult meant to you or the business but as soon as the first post went up here that was moot. A pm here would suffice, a request for a phone #,an email from a personal email address, All would solve the problem quite quickly imho

    Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J. D. Vance. . . . Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse.. From a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, a powerful account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America’s white working class Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis - that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck. The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America. J. D.’s grandparents were “dirt poor and in love,” and moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachian region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. They raised a middle-class family, and eventually their grandchild (the author) would graduate from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of their success in achieving generational upward mobility. But as the family saga of Hillbilly Elegy plays out, we learn that this is only the short, superficial version. Vance’s grandparents, aunt, uncle, sister, and, most of all, his mother, struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, and were never able to fully escape the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty, and trauma so characteristic of their part of America. Vance piercingly shows how he himself still carries around the demons of their chaotic family history. A deeply moving memoir with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.

    This is very true, when I was involved with the guesthouse the amount of no shows was ridiculous. However the guy in question did notify as early as he could and im sure the owner who is a good guy will refund his deposit even though he dosent have to. Hopefully it can all be resolved now that there is a point of contact.

    I don't agree that "It's all relative", or at least not that that statement explains anything by itself. A bargirl may spend all of her money on stupid shit and be broke the next day. A multi-millionaire might live comfortably but not outrageously. There are definitely personal values at play, too. Sure, some people might be jealous of big spenders. But some may just see someone with very different personal values.
  27. Thank you all for taking the time with decent and thoughtful replies. Bless! I'll try your new e-mail @Club Baku and Guesthouse. If it's the case that the corporate e-mail is malfunctioning I will PM the mods and opt for a deletion of the thread.
