    IT finally happened to me !!!!

    I always expect something like this to happen...been lucky so far. I think you were lucky to only lose £180 - the temptation to take it all must have been almost overpowering.

    Emirates Seat Booking

    Yep, £75 for the extra legroom is a complete piss-take especially as that will usually entail you being seated next to some family complete with mewling brat in a bassinet. The £75 a leg seat reservation will add £300 to your booking, comfortably putting your total outlay into the same realm as Premium Economy on some competing airlines...but that is not an option with Emirates. Probably not lucrative enough for them ? Regarding the upgrade to Business Class...this is offered at the last moment and entails a per leg fee that when combined with the price you have already paid means that you will easily spend more than a regular Business Class seat yet without lounge access, seat selection or free ride to and from airport. Not such a bargain really.

    Bangkok Flight Services

    A thumbs-up from me too. My suitcase travelled along with me in economy but was still on the carousel withing minutes of me clearing Immigration. A quick stop to get a SIM and I was Pattaya-bound within 20-25 minutes.
  4. Just a quick note from me...The low-dose (5mg) daily tablet of Tadalafil, which I sourced in the UK before my trip, worked superbly. Not only a genuine product at a price that makes Black Ant, etc. pointless but they leave you ready for action any time of day and none of the stomach-churning, headaches or stuffed-up sinuses that higher dose Viagra, etc. cause.

    Emirates Seat Booking

    Emirates must be struggling for cash these days. Two years ago I could book seats for free when I made the booking, last year this increased to £20 per leg for desired seat. This year a distinctly average seat will cost £20 per leg and anything approaching decent legroom costs £75 per leg. I stumped up to find I was in front of some germ-laden family that successfully managed to pass on their virus and scupper the first week of my trip. I have made the personal decision that long distance travel in the future is only going to be worthwhile if I fly Business and try and buffer myself from some of the misery of Economy. This is unlikely to happen short of a lottery win. In the meantime I am looking for an alternative airline and trips closer to home.

    Good to hear Essex Boy...except for the use of guys.

    Departure date is drawing ever closer and the thought of queuing for over an hour with fucktards that can't fill out the Immigration form before they gete to the desk plus the usual sprinkling of drunks and unwashed has got me reaching for the credit card and using the link provided by BM Peterbilt. I am hoping this service proves as reliable as BFS were, albeit at an elevated price.
  8. Trouble with most phones these days are they are completely encased in glass. Despite the claims by Corning about their Gorilla glass it cracks very easily. My old Samsung S7 had a shockproof case and screen protector on it when it slid down my leg bounced off my shoe and then fell the stately distance of about 2 inches...cracking the screen. I would prefer something in all metal finish that wasn't as slippery and did not act as a fingerprint magnet.

    The Taxi Ride

    PT Taxi charge 1,100 from Suvarnabhumi to Pattaya and 1,200 from Bangkok hotel to Pattaya. I expect that if you're staying in some remote part of Bangkok that price may be tweaked a tad, but 1,200 from Lower Sukhumvit is a solid price. Those small bridges on the way to Pattaya are a feckin' nuisance. I'm sure they could have built a less severe 'hump' to avoid the phenomena. Always look ahead if you're about to take a swig of something and don't want to wear it instead.
  10. I thought 100mg sounded like a large amount - thought it might be a typo though. Nothing funny about priapism although the prospect of a 4-hour stiffy might appeal to some - heed the advice of a urologist... "A long-lasting erection, one that lasts more than four hours without sexual stimulation, is a medical emergency and could be the last erection you ever have if you don't get help right away," says Michael Feloney, MD, a urologist at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. Why the alarm? The reason priapism is so dangerous is because it’s caused by blood trapped inside the penis. When blood can't circulate and carry oxygen to the cells that make up the structures of your penis, those cells start to die, which can result in tissue damage, scar tissue, and in extreme cases, permanent erectile dysfunction.
  11. Generic Cialis in the form of the active ingredient -Tadalafil - is now available to purchase in the UK after the patent expired on November 14 2017. Anything branded Cialis may be available OTC during / after October '18 but regulatory hurdles may delay the availability further.

    Levitra vs. Viagra

    I have just ordered a month's worth of low-dose Tadalafil tablets from a UK online pharmacy. These are generic Cialis with exactly the same spec as name-brand. Low dose means you can take every day and be constantly 'on the alert'. A good option if you get an unexpected offer and don't want to wait for Viagra, etc. to kick in. I paid £32 which is a little over a quid a day - easily on a par with Thai street EDs and guaranteed the real deal. Seems like a no-brainer as I have used locally sourced Black / Red Ant and Kamagra jellies with mixed results.

    Levitra vs. Viagra

    Drink and Viagra should only be an issue if you drink excessively and are taking meds for high blood pressure - you could then get a catastrophic drop in blood pressure. There are actually three strengths of Viagra with 50mg being the usual dosage. If you plan to have sex every day and need to be 'at the ready' all the time maybe consider Cialis Daily or Tadalafil. They are lower dosage and may take a few days to start working but generally have a longer effect. I presume you are getting medical advice if you have been taking Levitra for a while and would suggest you do the same before your trip. Do not always assume that you are getting the real product when in Thailand, even from a pharmacy and consider sourcing before your trip. Play it safe.

    Thanks to Peterbilt for posting the alternative to BFS. The BFS website bafflingly states that you can still book the service despite not accruing any of the advantages...

    Something different

    One of Huawei's ? The P8 is a shade over £200 in the UK (Amazon). They seem to have upped their game with camera specs.
