  1. I hear ya I don't get the "hospital required" food poisoning sick but every trip, usually by the 3rd week, I end up spending more time in the bathroom and eating imodium. I try to be sensible where I eat but you really never know. I'm sure a lot has to do with not being a native and resistance to certain bacteria. Still only an inconvenience and not enough to deter my desire to go to Thailand
  2. I use skyscanner as well then compare against the airline for the same flight. Sometimes the airline is cheaper. The trip I just booked was cheaper on skyscanner.
  3. Different meds work differently for different people. I got Valium here OTC and it put me out. But i cannot take it LT with my other medications. Ambien works best for me I showed Dr my empty bottle for 30 which was filled 32 days ago. I told her I was here for another week and would see my DR 3 days after I got home. Asked for 10 and DR said no problem. Reasonable request + reasonable explanation + documentation = no problem
  4. Between the 30 hour travel day to get here, the (non) schedule I keep while I'm here and the 30+ hours travel to get home its there is no wonder my sleep cycle is fucked up from the time I step on the plane until 2 or 3 days after I get home and get back into a "normal" routine. I usually get an ambien script from my DR before I leave, easy peasy Well this time I over did it and will run out before I depart. 2-12 hour flights with a 9 hour layover (in a hotel) was not something I wanted to do without sleep medication. So a little trip to the Pattaya City Hospital was in order. Right across the street with a LB for translation this should not be too big of a deal. And it wasn't. I had my passport, empty prescription bottle and most importantly my beautiful translator Aew. Whom without I would not have gotten past the front door. Aew got us through the initial red tape by telling me what to write where on the forms. With that completed we were told to come back in an hour. So we went across the street, had lunch and returned. Some more red tape than told to wait to be called. Background info: Thailand does not have Ambian , which is only a brand name for Zolpidem. They do have Stilnox which is the brand name for Zolpidem in Thailand. Same-Same. Having this information on my phone was extremely useful when the Med person looked at Ambien on the prescription bottle and immediately formed a puzzled look. After about 20 minutes was called an met with Dr. Explained my situation, presented empty bottle (instantly producing puzzled look) then showed her Stilnox on phone stating /stilnox and /ambien are same same for Zolpidem. Then told her I only wanted 10 to get me home. Relief smile "no problem" Another 10 minutes I was out the door script in hand. All in: 2 1/2 hours time and 700 baht. Side note: No this is not a narcotic but it is a scheduled controlled drug and they are not going to hand out simply for the asking. Have your documentation in order, don't try and BS the DR, they have heard it all. And don't ask for more than you need or you may be shown a quick route to the door. Side note 2: couple days ago went to a pharmacy and asked for something to help me sleep and was immediately handed 10 valium. I believe are much more dangerous than Ambien But TiT. I cannot us Valium for other reasons so it was of to hospital.

  6. hey mate

    Landing Friday 11/9

    The plan, such as plans go in Pattaya , is to visit 69 on Sat the 10th. My mate  is bringing Som from CIB . hooked up LLLLLLLT  Up to him  . Som and Jane are friends and from the same village in Laos so hopefully Jane will be there.  At any rate looking forward to seeing you and Ying and raising a glass. or 3 

  7. On the same plane 777 ER Qatar business is 2-2-2. Still less seats. I've flown both and from a comfort standpoint did not notice any difference. $2K is a lot of ST 555
  8. I hear ya. Well it flies to 120 countries, more than any other airline and in the absence of a real threat for $2K difference vs Qatar for business class from the US I'll risk it.
  9. I flew Turkish in the past and have another trip booked in Nov. Can't comment on Istanbul as I did not venture outside of the airport despite a 9 hour layover. Flew business class. The flight and the lounge at IST were fantastic. The staff at IST left a lot to be desired to the point of being nasty. There is access to the airport hotel on the travel side, no customs security check etc. which makes the long layover bearable if you do not want to tour the city. Also if you have the long layover Turkish airlines provides a free hotel room outside the airport and a tour package which I had no interest in either. A 40% $ lower rate for business class on Turkish vs Qatar made going with Turkish a no brainer despite the long layover.
  10. A little info (maybe TMI) on DUI As we know the limit in the LOS is 50 mg/dl or .05 % Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) as we use in the states Although it is not percise, here is a calculator that will give you an idea of what your reading will be after a set number of drinks. https://www.healthstatus.com/calculate/blood-alcohol-bac-calculator As you can see it doesn't take that much to pass 50 mg/dl. At 4 drinks of whiskey I would be at .09, almost double the limit in LOS. I've had a motorcycle license for over 30 years but I would not even think about driving in the LOS stone cold sober much less after drinking. Too many crazy drivers. In my previous life as a LEO, I administered countless breathalyzer tests. The limit in the states, and UK I believe, is 80 mg or .08 BAC The scale in Pre-digital breathalyzer only went to .40 and we were required to seek medical treatment for anyone at .25 or higher. You would be surprised at the number of people that have high readings and still function. Not safely by any stretch of the imagination, but function. My highest was a .35 BAC. He was walking and talking as normal and swore he had not had a drink since the bars closed 8 hours earlier. Now there is a dude that drinks all day every day to build his body to that tolerence. In my short LEO career every one of the fatal MV accidents I handled was due to DUI Despite being called every name in the book and my family being cursed to die a painful death by some of the violaters, I had absolutely no problem locking up anyone for DUI
  11. As you know I got this message and yes for 10k. It was on a Friday and if I did not send immediately she would have to spend the weekend in jail. When I said no via LINE I got a very abrupt "Thanks" response. After a week or so of silence I received a text like nothing changed. No doubt I overpay when I am with them. But regardless of the story I will not send 1 Baht from home.
  12. Stopped in last night for the grand opening party. Very nice affair. Unfortunately I wasn't feeling that well and didn't stay that long. I did get to meet the lovely Sonya who I believe was acting as the event photographer. I do hope she posts a pic of the very hot LB in the blue top and white jeans. 555. Solice, as I said before I think you have a winner and I wish you the greatest success. edit-spelling
  13. I would like to give a shout out for Solice newest venture Baku Cafe and guest house. I don't have the exact address but it is a stones throw from Baby Boom. We stopped in the other night and despite not being ready for the public Solice and staff were able to provide us with a fantastic dinner. If what we sampled is any indication of what is to come Solice has another winner on his hands. There is a Facebook page and a grand opening party this Friday 1/26. See you there.
  14. Has anyone ever used this service for ED meds? http://www.pattayakamagra.com Prices are not bad and the delivery would be convenient Last trip I did not shop around and paid way too much.
