    Ok here's my dinner at regular khao tom(teochew porridge). Order the usual fresh oyster, fried fish salad and braised duck with dao gua and also chang beer. This is 1 pax.

    Fried fish salad (yam pla sa li)

    Fresh oyster. I sure kena jialat jialat one day because of this.

    Braised duck. Have to admit food ordered is to go with beer (puay jiu).

    Yah TG cannot make money on that route so they will be operating a 1-stop (incheon?) I believe. Can't believe you still sober after such a long flight cos if it was me, sure hit the bottle hard after the doors close

    Very good that you got $20 comped. In the US, jai yen yen works too. BTW all taxis from LAX have a minimum charge of $19 ($15 + $4 surcharge). Even if you wanted to, you cannot walk from LAX to your hotel - there simply are no sidewalks. How I know? Tried it once

    If you are super pro and know the neighborhood, you can take *any* hotel shuttle to/from LAX - there are several LAX airport hotels clustered on the same street next to each other (I've done this before too). These free shuttles you must call the hotel and ask them for pickup - I'm sure you did that but maybe they forgot. Next time call again and again (maybe you did that too)

    Surprisingly the flight was full. Anyway I'll be coming back through Incheon, you're right. I had only 4 brandy with soda, I mean its a special request, half brandy half soda, most of the time its 1/5 brandy 4/5 soda. I was worried I couldn't sleep in the hotel but I did by 1.30am so I'm pretty well adjusted, but not madam, after breakfast came up slept now still not wake.

    Morning guys and afternoon joetys,

    Hehehe. Still not use to new apartment yet. Last night after dinner, forgot I am staying at new place and went back old apartment. Have to make u-turn. Traffic is bad even at 10 pm because of a few road closure/diversion due to the current music festival.

    Hehehe. There's something for everyone here in Sin City, eg. Singles, doubles, group, young, old, male, females and the undefined.

    Had usual American breakfast at Took Lae Dee (Foodland) and took pics of some advertisements. The advertisements are mainly properties, vehicles and jobs.

    THB 35K/mth for the above.

    For those who like to have own swimming pool. THB 7.99 Million Nia (cheaper than HDB 4 room pigeonhole)

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    For those that need a big garden, this one is going at THB 4.2 million.

    For the car/motcycles, Here's some interesting one.

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    This 900KM Fino is a good buy. My less than a year Scoopy already 2800 KM. Think can bargain to THB 30K.

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    This 2011 fino one even cheaper but did not mention mileage.

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    2005 CRV selling at THB 575K. Think can go down to THB 520K or even THB 500K. Have always like CRV but have yet to own one.

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    40 year old Mini Cooper! Yours for THB 115K provided you have another few hundred thousand to maintain this car.

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    1974 Mercs at THB 360K. Ang Mohs like to play this type of old cars. One of my neighbor is 'playing' old Vespa Scooter. And it's not cheap. Have to get specialized mechanics for many repairs. Spares also very expensive.

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    10 year old Cefiro. Guess what? The mileage only 80K.

    For those who prefer condo/apartment style living. Here's some pics.

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    This is a very nice studio unit for 1-2 with good seaview. It's nice to wake up every morning with a good scenery. Also very conducive for those who love natures while playing bedminton.

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    OK, this one is very hi-so. 220 sqm but at a price tag of THB 11.6 million (can buy 2 of the houses in my previous post).

    Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
    This is View Talay at Jomtien. I went there to look for a unit to rent and trust me, this is a nice place to stay. Only THB 3.5 million. This one 82 sqm is the bigger unit. The unit I was interested is 50 sqm.
