Pullman hotel in Pattaya is a pretty good hotel although the location could be a little off. Located in North Pattaya it has its own beach front connected by its pool area.

Lobby










Looking down at night from my room is the pool and restaurant

Glass noodle with prawns


Fish cake


Steamed crab




This dish is known as "Gai Sam Yang" (literally 3 types of chicken), but then there is no chicken inside instead its made up of (anti-clockwise from the top) - dried shrimps; peanuts; shallots; lemon grass; cut Thai lime; cubes of raw ginger and the middle is green chili



Supposed to mix them all up



And finally this is a great dish with alcohol especially whiskey and soda mix



Dessert

I never realised all it took to live the high life was to sell screws. I spent my whole life trying to make and sell hi tech stuff and never made enough to eat out.

My idea of a good meal is a trip to burger king.

Brother [froggy] appears to live a very varied and full life,
with travels, assorted meals and fine dining, vintage wine, wine, and beverages.
 
Gents, any good to try Priority Pass (lane)? Short circuit Q and sinkie lane mishaps.
Tried once (without it), and the bitch at counter gave me a bollacking (show power to her superior) kns.
Criteria?
My modus operandi, is to hit the senior citizens/family Q (I probably look it, and plead innocence)
I use the Priority line when I enter or leave. It's available at BKK and also DMK (at least entering, I'm sure about when leaving because I've not as yet flown international from DMK).

You can use it if you're flying business class (many airlines, not all I think. With TG, you just use your boarding pass). Airline will give you a paper pass either onboard (arriving) or at check-in (departing). Immigration officer will collect pass (may times they do not), if departing, there is a line checker who checks for pass. Another way to gain entry is if you have an APEC Business Travel Card.

A big time saver if you can use it. At BKK, from deplaning, through the long walk or shuttle bus ride, to curbside takes me around 20 minutes. The reverse also just as quick.

Latest oil price

To everyone in this forum, this not a problem. But to 95% of siam kias who live day to day, including me, this is a very big problem. Knnbccb, everything keep increasing. Now roadside normal chicken rice also charge 50 baht. Add egg 60 baht. Curry rice also 50 baht. Ho Deng Pork noodle also 45 and 55 baht.

Paiseh to say, life is definitely hard for the most of the siam kias. With everything so expensive, even take home 20,000 baht also barely enough to survive.
