Shopping in Bangkok and the suburbs so different to Pattaya

One thing I have found that is really different is the shops. Goodness where to start. I think in Bangkok you can get almost anything you need….at a price… I think I got used to getting around between Pattaya and our village of Huai Yai and then Horse Shoe Point by car. I knew exactly […]

Hairdressers in Bangkok and the suburbs

Since leaving Pattaya and my hairdresser Saranya on Pattaya Nua I have quizzed many people about where they go to have their hair done. Its such a daunting task. Who do I trust, who can understand what I want? Its so difficult. I have been told about “Abstract” and I wrote and email and got […]

A trip into Bangkok for an early supper

We decided that we would have to venture out into Bangkok. So last Friday in the afternoon I parked my car at airport link station and climbed the stairs to the platform.

Finally after nearly a year I seem to be making some new friends. I am off out for lunch today to the Marriott so I will update the post on my return to tell you what the food and service was like. I keep remembering this to tell new folk that are moving here. Shop […]
