You glide effortlessly on a secure heavy-duty zip-line from platform to platform. It’s pure, accelerating fun – with a “thrill factor” that can’t be matched anywhere on the planet. Flight of the Gibbon originated in the mountains of Chiang Mai, and still operates a highly successful, innovated zip line tour at that location. Due to demand and the success in Chiang Mai, they opened up a new zip line tour site in Chonburi, just outside of Bangkok and Pattaya last year. The new site has proven just as popular.
In addition to the Flight of the Gibbon Zip Line Tour, and unique to the Chonburi site, a completely new concept in jungle adventure, the Go Gibbon Experience is now available to the public. It opened on October 5th, 2009 - and increasly becomes a “go to” destination for jungle exploration with a huge amount of fun included.
Suspended bridges, Spider Nets, Tarzan Jumps, Flying-Fox, Flying Swings, and much more will deliver an educational, super-fun get-away. Better yet, Go Gibbon Experience has 65 exhilarating challenges available for all skill levels and ages. Visitors can pick the ones that fit their physical limits, endurance and sense of comfort.For more information on all Flight of the Gibbon Zip Line Tours , visit our website, or download the Flight of the Gibbon Magazine here .
With Cobra Gold being held in Sattahip this year, Pattaya should get a boost from having so many servicemen and women on it's doorstep.Not sure if it's based on rank but some seem to stay in hotels around town and some seem to do a Cinderella and jump on a coach before midnight. Either way they should be spending money. Bring it on.

An Irishman goes into the confessional box after years of being away from the Church. There's a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap. On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.Then the priest comes in. "Father, forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession, but I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be."The priest replies: "Get out. You're on my side."

The only way to pull off a Sunday afternoon 'quickie' with their 8-year old son in the apartment was to send him out on the balcony with a Mars Bar and tell him to report on all the street activities. He began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation: 'There's a car being towed from the parking lot,' he shouted. 'An ambulance just drove by!' 'Looks like the Anderson's have company,' he called out. 'Matt's riding a new bike!' 'Looks like the Sanders are moving!' 'Jason is on his skate board! After a few moments he announced, 'The Coopers are shagging!!' Startled, his mum and dad shot up in bed! Dad cautiously called out,
'How do you know they're shagging?' 'Jimmy Cooper is standing on his balcony with a Mars Bar'.

Had a wander around a few of the bars on Walking Street on Friday night and the overall feeling was the bars were low on staff. Not sure if it was the rain that had kept them away or if they'd been 'taken away' but many stars were not in the bars.Tried out What's Up upstairs and with beer at Bt135 a bottle they need to be doing something special. Sadly it was anything but so it was one expensive beer and back on the street. Maybe I caught them on a bad night...... When you think some very good bars sell draft at Bt60 a glass then What's Up needs to deliver something above and beyond to justify it's prices.

Insect stings and bites are nothing short of irritating as well as painful, especially when you receive “doses” from nasty stingers like hornets and bees, not to mention the ever present mosquito regardless of which environment you’re in. The Optical spectrum Anti-itch Insect bite cure Kit Tool aims to provide a painless solution by using soothing electromagnetic heat that is generated from a single standard 9V battery. Since there is no use of chemicals involved, the Spectrum Itch Reliever can be safely used on children without concerns of sensitive skin arising. Well, one thing’s for sure – if you’ve just been stung by a bee or a hornet, we would strongly recommend you make a bee-line (pardon the pun) to the nearest doctor just in case you’re allergic to that species which might lead to other more serious complications. $6.69 seems like a pretty decent price for something like this...

New Ford Coming!!!!
Renault and Ford are working on a new small car for women.
They are mixing the Clio and the Taurus, and calling it the "Clitaurus." It comes in pink, and the average male thief won't be able to find it, even if someone tells him where it is.

I felt it was time to recognise all the beautiful female 'friends' of Pattaya Rag and give them a 'Real' 6-pack to look at!!Never the modest type, Ronaldo appears to have embraced his new modelling career with gusto, striking a series of moody poses and showing off a six-pack which would make Becks green with envy. The 24-year-old reportedly maintains his chiseled abs by performing 3,000 sit-ups a day. Read more at Telegraph.co.uk

Watch the movie Alive on repeat play. It's about the 1972 Uruguayan rugby team who's chartered plane crash landed in the snow-capped Andes. With no supplies and freezing snow cold all around, they begin to die of cold. The survivors then had to eat their dead mates. 'Nuff said. Sadly, it's yet to reach us in gory high-def detail on Blu-ray, but you can pick it up here from Amazon on DVD for £3.98.

I've seen three Honda PCX 125's on the road's of Pattaya today and I reckon it is one good looking bike. Good looks, high price. It will cost you around Bt70,000/- to take one out of the showroom.

With so many Premier League games falling foul of the Health & Safety Committee, a special team has been formed to play in all conditions. I give you..... Winter Milan!
Brrrrrrrrrad Freezel; Paul Konche-ski, Martin Skatel, Wooly-am Gallas, Ashley Cold; Shaun St. Sledger, Scott Parka, Kevin Snowlan, Parky Ji Sung; Emile Husky, Andriy Shiver-chenko. Subs: Sleigh Given, Leroy Sleeta, Michael Snowin' and the redoubtable Dele Adepolar.Two left-backs in the same side doesn't make much sense but then it's difficult to keep your balance in this weather. The owner is of course Mohammed Al F-ridge, and the manager is inevitably Big Sam Allardicicle.via Robbo Robson
