I know there are lots of Charities here in Pattaya, but is there one you know of that will help an old bedridden Farang?

 

I came across him recently. He has been here for 20yrs. His money has been milked by his girlfriend and the Hospitals.

So he has only his pension to sustain him.

 

He is too sick to go back to UK......Very sad.

Too sick to go back to the UK where his treatment would be for free?

Whilst it is sad , I doubt you will get much sympathy for the guy. Living in a foreign country and not having a plan for your healthcare , especially when your getting on in age , is very unwise .

 

Doesnt he have any family back home ? I,m sure they could help with getting him back to the UK ?

Poor guy cant travel! Maybe in an Air Ambulance but at what cost? His family are not well off and his Thai GF has nicked 25000 quid from his account somehow or other......

With the greatest of respect (genuinely), it sounds like a crock of shit to me.

 

Every now and then I come across farangs giving hard luck stories to try and get some cash off me.

 

The bottom line is, if someone from the UK (or any EU member state) is destitute and stranded outwith their own country, it is the British Embassy's responsibility to repatriate that person to home soil. Their first port of call is to try and raise funding from family members, but if that is not possible, the UK Government will foot the bill.

 

Too ill to travel, but can meet people and give them tales of woe??....hmmm. Sorry to be a cynic, but Im not buying it.

 

If you think he is genuine, you can pass this info on....

Some of us would rather die in Thailand than have to go back to the UK especially having lived here for 20 years.

 

Living is not about how long you can make it last but how you live your life every day, we are all going to die the same as billions before us. Some of us are fortunate to have lived a life before we die others can only envy.

 

For me the quality of my life has always been far more important than how long I can make it last that is and always will remain a mystery. I can't extend my life after I die I can however live it while I am still alive.

 

There are 2 irrefutable facts in your life one that you were conceived and born the other that you will die one you already know the other will remain a mystery for the time being.

 

Try this draw a line A___________________________________________________________B. A represents when you were born B represents when you will die now put a cross on the line where you think you are at this moment in time.

 

The line between the cross and B is how long you have left to live now what are you going to do live it or merely exist it could be a lot shorter than you think, at my age I am very close to B.

There was a case a few months ago where an Aussie bloke had a choice of staying in a Thai jail, of being sent back to Australia.

 

He chose the Thai jail and ended up dying there.

 

For some people the thought of reality in thier own country is just too much after years spent in LOS.

 

I hope that the guy in this case manages to get sorted some how.

Unless I had family in Thailand, I would rather be repatriated to the UK, just to stitch them up with the bill.

Good for you Pal.

When this old Guy told Memorial Hospital he could not afford to pay such large sums they shipped him off to Chonburi Hospital but they refused to provide that place with any medical results acquired whilst he was in Intensive Care!

 

The bill for three days in Chonburi was 8000bht incidentally.

 

He is back home now and we still dont know what was wrong with him?

 

Hopefully he will be able to go to a nice Old Folks Home weve found in BKK.

Thank goodness we have managed to get him into The Golden Years Hospital/Old Folks Home in BKK.

It looks really nice and there are loads of Doctors and Nurses to look after him.

Thanks to all who expressed sympathy for his plight and a big Raspberry to the git who was not......

One day I hope HE is in a pickle and nobody helps him. Yeah!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
