    Metered taxis

    I have heard London has one of the best taxi services in the world. Do not project that image on Thailand.. With all due respect it sounds like you haven't spent much time travelling around here..

    Metered taxis

    Only used grab once in Pattaya. Way more expensive than in other places in Thailand. As I assume they can't deviate too much from maffia prices, especially not to a place like the bus station.. But the service was very good. Used it a lot around Chiang mai. Very polite, Thai drivers, good/new cars, there within a few minutes after your order, no bs, no overcharging, no driving around not knowing your destination, not asking/expecting tips. It's far superior to the rickety/corrupt/f'ckd up system that is regular Thai taxi service.

    sore throat

    Ok, thanks. Im nowhere near that bad. I will put myself on rest for 2 more days. And I won't touch alcohol again for a while. I did do a few nights drinking in Pattaya, must have seriously screwed with my immune system..

    sore throat

    That's something Im a bit affraid of. Just managed to see a doc. He told me it's viral and not to worry. Just rest a bit more. It's just that I've had plenty of colds and none of them were like this.. How fatigued were you, when you had mono. I feel fatigued, but can still function ok. Legs feel a bit heavy and tired, but I can deal and push through. Which is probably what I should not do.. It honestly does not feel as bad as an accute cold, but it just persists..

    sore throat

    It's not that bad. Low grade pain and discomfort.. Just does not look good, looks like strep to me, but many things do.. No time today, but have talked to hotel owner and she'll give me a ride to bk-hospital tomorrow. It's been the same for 12 days, I can't see it escalate all of a sudden. Ive been raised under dutch medical care, where if you go see a doctor with a sore throat, all you get is a lecture on rising medical expenses. Perhaps not if I tell m Ive been sucking lb cock in Pattaya though.

    sore throat

    Been having a sore throat and a bit of a cough for 12 days now. Had a cold just last month, so pretty sure that's not it. Symptoms are strange. Throat mostly low grade ache during the day, acting up at night. No really noticible swollen lymph nodes. Chills and sweats sometimes, but sporadic, no real fever. Throat does not look good, all white and pussy. Coughing up flem. No sinus issues. Symptoms haven't gotten much worse, nor any better since it started. I have felt rather fatigued all the time.. Anybody experienced anything like it? Could it be gonorrhoea/Chlamidia of the throat? No symptoms in the netherregions. Probably visiting hospital tomorrow, curious what this could be, never experienced anything like it. Never had a std before.

    How do you guys stay healthy in Pattaya?

    In my experience swapping saliva with gg's and lb's on a daily basis are often the cause for throat/nose problems. But yeah if anybody asks, it's the bloody aircon..

    Tip to avoid travellers stomach

    Works if it's bacterial, which is about 80% of the cases. Giardia is also quite common, I've had it a few times. It causes a distinct smell, so it's now easy for me to know if I have Giardiasis. For that Cipro won't work, take Tinidazole (or metronidazole).. When in doubt or in case of managable symptoms I would be conservative with cipro as it destroys your intestinal flora.

    Tip to avoid travellers stomach

    Belief is a powerfull thing, no point in trying to argue against it with facts.. It's a crap shoot as far as I'm concerned. Eat healthy, eat at places that get plenty of customers/look decent, don't drink to much, get enough sleep and hope you won't catch anything.

    Tip to avoid travellers stomach

    Stomach acids are stronger or better less diluted (when released in sufficient amounts) That is where part of the problem lies, insufficient release. I've known of the old wives tale about coke for a long time and have used it a lot, still got sick from time to time and didn't see any difference when I stopped. For best effect they say to use diet coke, as the sugar in regular would offset the effects of the acid. However, this study found no effect https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17536679

    bali or hong kong or manila

    For (lb) mongering? Would have to agree with funboy, go to Angeles, close to Manilla and much more condensed and to the point in that respect. Might even be able to fly straight into clark. Otherwise could be a bit chilly and rainy in HK, weather in Bali hot and humid, but not super busy that time of year, good chance of filthy ocean/beaches..

    Where were you staying? If you trust reception, don't be shy to call them, it has really helped me out with a crazy gg in the past. And I've used as an effective threat once or twice as well.

    1 is a last resort, but if she really is going to call, beat her to it, so it won't be her friend showing up as police. 2 and 3 are good options, let Thais deal with crazy Thais, don't do it yourself. One I'd like to ad is (calmly)suggesting to go and have a chat with the bar owner, depending on the rep of the bar (not familiar with the house myself) can work miracles. I assume 4 and 5 were a joke..

    When a girl you've never even met asks for money online, break contact! If a girl asks me for money, outside of her regular fee, it's over, she's on the ignore ist. If she doesn't agree with the normal fee of 1000st, I assume she doesn't like me and move on..
