Re: Alternatives to Thailand

Sounds like Pattaya.. I prefer Sri lanka, nice beaches, nice food, people not so pushy as in India and a lot cleaner Ironic that I know a Sri Lankan who worked with me in the past and he hated Sri Lanka. He said it was filthy. I can't comment as I've never been there but you have to wonder. Not muc...

Re: Seriously pissed off , AGODA >COM

Had some trouble recently with a booking through Agoda. Wife was seriously pissed! Even I have had to be VERY careful where I click and what "options" were or were not checked off in little boxes prior to making a selection. It's deliberate obfuscation meant to trip you up and thereafter "give up" f...

Re: Taco Bell comming to Thailand!

Hello... back visiting now. Thankfully during my foray into the states I never was forced to venture near a Taco Bell as I had plenty of local mom and pop and other SAD (Standard American Diet) options to be stricken with. It's truly incredible that I've been taken ill, more often than not, by estab...

Re: Printer Repair

As an old PC tech in the oil industry I had to deal with all manner of printers, etc. Corporate preferred simple black and white lasers because it simply made sense and nobody had any business printing off their kids birthday announcements. Still, I'd check and see if your printer has a tiny piece o...

Re: Udon Brit Dies Fleeing Drug Bust

Well, the simple lesson learned here is, and it has nothing to do with compressions or EMS, don't peddle drugs and drive off like a scalded rabbit once confronted. It won't end on the bright side. It never does. Damn fool thing to do.

Re: Taco Bell comming to Thailand!

LONE STAR actively supports a leader who is ACTIVELY spreading HATE, not just enforcing the law. So the hypocrisy of liking Mexican Food still stands. He's lucky he's not Mexican. I predict that if the hate keeps on spreading, it won't be long before ANY American can escape the Blowback. We'd bette...

Re: Special Pizza Buffet at Los Amigos!

And that's really the clincher... I'm not in it for a hobby. My time is worth more than that so it comes down to priorities. I've done the math and unless someone has DEEP pockets and willing to ride it out for a LONG time then there is little point in putting in the time and effort. That's why you ...

Re: Taco Bell comming to Thailand!

Taco Bell is to Mexican food what McDonald’s is to gourmet hamburgers. :shock: Absolutely right. Seeing as Pepsi owns the brand, along with Pizza Hut and KFC, it's little wonder. Now Thais get to be inundated in poorly executed faux Mexicaqn fare much like Americans have been in the past. If they w...

Re: Special Pizza Buffet at Los Amigos!

It’s so funny, when I left negative feedback for another “Mexican” restaurant it all got deleted by UdonMap, is this allowed because Los Amigos isn’t a sponsor? It's all too easy to post negative, or positive, feedback. It can either be seen as propaganda or a "hit" by a competitor. It happens all ...

Greed Pizza is a great pizza place, but now it's up for sale. Maybe you can take this place over Doctorfix and keep it in business. I'll have to check it out. Pizza joints are by and large a dime a dozen... There are those that'll knock your socks off and those that you'll wish you could bleach the...

The issue was with the preparation of the food, not so much the Tex Mex food taste itself.
Understood. But, there again, taste and prep are a bit synonymous wouldn't you say?

Re: Special Pizza Buffet at Los Amigos!

Having spent half my life in West Texas I KNOW TexMex like the back of my hand. No, it's not the same thing. I'm tempted to open my own joint but I think I'll stick to making it at home. I didn't expect it to be the same to be honest. I can only hope that the pizza offering is better.

Re: What’s theBEST FILM so far that you have ever seen

Orwell used the expression of "Good bad books" to describe books so bad they were good. Likewise there are those movies that are simply what I call "popcorn" movies and not to be taken seriously at all. Simply a popcorn munching excuse to kill time without taxing the little gray cells too much. Ever...

Restaurant/Coffee bar counter

Our restaurant closed some time ago and we have gradually sold off our fixtures. At present there is a custom built heavy counter remaining that was used for mixing smoothies and making coffee. It's about a year old and the missus says it cost her 40,000 to have it built and put in. The bar detaches...
