Only my Facebookers will recognize them.

I would have preferred postponing this item until about March 25th but I just couldn't wait. OK ... yes ... JC's birthday is just a week off so the thing is still timely. Still, seeing that look on both their disappointed faces would have been sweeter had I scheduled it immediately after her back to back (*) fucks.


(*) Sequential, not anal.

The book pages are from "Bangkok, Then & Now". But, the live shots of the building in question are from my point-and-shoot.

See what a century can do to a city!

The Royal Orchid Sheraton here in Bangkok has always been the "weak sister" when compared to the other 'big' riverside hotel like The Oriental, The Peninsula, Shangri-La and the Millennium Hilton. Maybe "weak sister" is not the right term; perhaps "dowdy sister" best described it.

Anyway, for the past year the river face of this hotel has had a major botox ... no, that's unfair ... maybe the scalpel was brought into play. Whatever, this part of the hotel now looks super.

I am seeing red! (*)


(*) Girl, car and a new pub.


Tuesday, December 22, 2009 (Then and now photos of the properties plus my favorite massage site)

The "newbies" near us have been putting on some height during the last 365 days. These two properties will eventually support hotels: a Novotel and either a Ritz or a Japanese five star place.


Meanwhile at our rear the girls at Ruam Rudee Massage are preparing for their New Year's party, which they are holding tonight. Inside there are a couple of piles of gifts that they will draw numbers for.


Wednesday, December 23, 2009 (Christmas Eve Eve)

One day to go to add to our 2009 Christmas card collection. Of the three that we have received so far one is from my bank.

But, being stuck in traffic with Britney was OK on this pre-holiday.

I love this birthday card that Stephani and Robin sent me. Thanks guys. It is brilliant.

For our Thursday the 24th dinner we drove to the Hyatt Erawan Hotel for the special buffet. This year it was Watcharee and myself ... and Rung and her daughter, Name (*). Intermixed with the food there was an abundance of clowns, magicians, mysterious women and pretty wine pour persons.



(*) Name is her name ... yes, her name is Name.
