Topless In Pattaya

If I have a pet hate in Pattaya it's all the topless nudity. If it was the steroid six-pack mob it would be bad enough but it's not, it's more often than not pot bellied baby boomers and coffin dodgers. Why do middle aged (and beyond) male farangs think we want to see their belly's in all parts of Pattaya. Robert Burns said, If we could see ourselves as others see us and oh how I wish that applied to the topless crowd. Do these guys not realise that they're the source of much amusement to many in Pattaya.

I can't guess at what makes them do it given they generally look more like Homer Simpson than Arnold Schwarzathingy in his prime. Somebody else said, Love is blind! well that certainly applies here. Maybe they haven't had a girlfriend since they were 18 in Bogner and having a girlfriend now in Pattaya has thrown them in to some kind of Groundhog Day scenario. Whatever, is it to much to ask that they limit their nudity to the beach, the pool and their room.

Older Thais are a conservative lot and what they make of it I can't imagine. Is it any wonder many of them think that we're bottom feeders because of our appearance and our mongering. Maybe we have brought the stricter visa requirements on ourselves by taking too many liberties. I'd hate to think I was suffering cause some fat twat likes to walk round town in just his shreddies.

  • Best breakfast battle continues - I tried the Apex Hotel buffet breakfast on 2nd Road today and for the same 110 Baht as the Lek Hotel you get an even better run for your money. At the Apex, the drinks are cold, the Thai dishes are quality, the farang dishes are similar to the Lek with the noticeable addition at the Apex of spaghetti bolognese, (for breakfast?), the waiters refill your coffee/tea and the waitresses and mongers girlfriends are far prettier. What are you waiting for, there just can't be a better deal than this anywhere in town.

  • Mangozeen has started an interesting survey of beaches in this area and although purely subjective, it will give an indication of the cleaner/safer beaches around. Their first article on the subject is here

  • Two young men, on their motorbike, were being pursued by two other guys on a motorbike. One of the pursuers pulled out a .357 caliber pistol and shot at the head of the rider. The bullet lodged in the rider’s forehead and resulted in his being in a coma. The pillion passenger was also injured. [via Pattaya Daily News]

  • According to a Pattaya News Agency a Swedish man was stopped by “fake” police officers wearing no uniforms and no Police ID. The Swede stopped and they pushed him away and took his bike.

  • Download Youtube and Google videos and convert to AVI or MPEG - Most sites that let you download videos from YouTube don't give you an option to convert them to a more convenient file format so you end up with a FLV file, which you probably need a new media player to play. Save2PC saves you this trouble by letting you download videos from YouTube and Google Video and at the same time convert them to AVI or MPEG files that you can easily play with almost any media player. You can also leave them as Flash video files if you want. It's a free tool that you install on your computer, and all you need to do is paste in the URL of the video you want and press Start to save it. [via {digital} Alchemy]

  • Forbes magazine has come out with its annual list of the 400 richest Americans. This year’s list includes Oprah Winfrey and 300 members of her studio audience. [via Conan O'Brien]

  • A woman keeps asking her husband if her boobs are so small. "Does this shirt make them look bigger? Does this one make them look smaller?" she asks. The next day her husband buys her a mirror. Before bed, she always looks in the mirror and asks her husband, "Does this shirt make them look bigger? Does this one make them look smaller?" Finally he gets so annoyed that he says, "I know how to make them larger!" "How!?!?!?" she asks excitedly. "Take a bunch of toilet paper and rub it in between your boobs." "Well how long does it take?" she asks. "They should expand over the years," he answers. "How did you know that?" she asks "I dunno, but it sure worked for your ass, didn't it?"
