A Werewolf Quote about Thai Girls in Bangkok

There are many different kinds of girls in Thailand, but they all have one thing in common: if you handle them right they will do anything and everything you demand of them. A faithful pet dog is happiest when you are in complete control. Likewise, Thai women.

Leave any pussy-whipped habits and attitudes at home when you come to the Land of Smiles.
The women here need to be told what to do.

A New Lounge Opens in Nana Plaza

Bunnies has opened up in the old Cat House digs on the second floor. They are now enclosed, and are basically a 'lounge', however management has indicated that they should be going "A Go-Go" in two to three months.

Nana Liquid After Hours Club

Across the street and around in back is Nana Liquid (formerly Nana Disco with a new entrance) which seems to be hopping on Friday and Saturday night after Nana Plaza closes. I even saw a few of the dancers from Nana Plaza enjoying the night away.

The Regular Faces of Nana Plaza Discuss The Center Bars

A couple of the regular faces at Nana Entertainment Plaza, Dave the manager of Angelwitch and Keith, an owner of the Ladyboy bar Temptations, are now thinking that the recently demolished bars in the center part of Nana Plaza is going to be reconstructed as a Beer Garden, which seems to make sense.
That way you could sit in the beer garden and watch the girls go by to their respected gogo bars.
As the longtime Mama-sen of 8 years Daeng at Angelwitch is always willing to hook you up with the girl of your dreams. Just ask her.

(For another story about the uses of Angelwitch, click here.)

Slow Times at Soi Cowboy

It has been fairly slow lately at Soi Cowboy, especially on the rainy evenings. Few customers, and in some bars few girls. I went into one bar for a little while with a friend, and came out in was pouring rain.
But the motorcycle taxis were still there, zooming through the Soi, trying to get customers. Like who wants to ride on the back of a motorcycle taxi in the middle of a downpour?

Cactus Bar in Soi Cowboy - Still Independently Owned

The Cactus gogo bar in Soi Cowboy is one of the last small independent bars. It's ran by Cactus John, who prides himself in being a bit of a gourmet cook.
He serves up one item on Tuesdays and Thursdays, different each time. This time is was a massive burger which had a touch of horseradish along with homemade fries and a bowl of leach & potato soup, which also had a touch of spiciness to it.
You can wash it all down with a wide selection of Belgium beer while watching nude dancers on stage.
Its a rather funky little bar, a little like the old Hog's Breath Bar in Nana Plaza before Spankys took over that space.

And as Cactus John says, the more you drink, the prettier the girls look. (The prettier and slimmer girls come out after the meal is near conclusion.)
And the music is setup by John himself, and its never the same.

Southeast Asian Author Dean Barrett Does Booksigning in Bangkok

Dean Barrett was hard at work promoting and selling his books at the Texas Lone Staar Bar recently. He was signing and talking it up with his fans in one of his favorite bars in Bangkok - The Texas Lone Star. The bar even offered free fried chicken and potato salad for the event, and Dean ran out of some of the books that I wanted.
But he still has a few back at his apartment, so contact him through his blog, Dean Barrett Thailand, get yourself a copy of all of his books.

A Pessimistic View of the State of Nana Plaza

For long time customers, the old Plaza took on the air of a derelict hulk being towed to the wreckers to be broken up for scrap.
Personally, I took a piece of the rubble as a keepsake just like Germans snatched pieces of the Berlin Wall when it was finally torn down. I suggest others do the same before it is too late.
The inside skinny has long been that the when the master lease is up in the next couple of years, the land on which Nana Plaza stands will be sold, the plaza razed, and a hotel built on the site.

The Center Bars of Nana Plaza Torn Down - Finally

After years of it being considered a fire hazard, the center bars of Nana Plaza are no more. The fire department thought that it would be necessary in case of a fire in Nana Entertainment Plaza that they would be able to drive inside to fight a blaze.

I remember when it was hard to walk inside the complex with all of the motorcycles blocking the entrance.

Will it be better, or is it part of the end of Nana?
Maybe its the start of a new renaissance.

Boobie Fondling at Sheba's in Soi Cowboy

Leave it to the kids fresh off the plane to invest time in the playful side of Soi Cowboy.....
Sitting in Sheba's with my pal as he reached around the back of this hostess he had been flirting with to undo her bra, and when it became apparent that he was over challenged, she reached behind herself and undid the strap of her bra.....
She got him staring at her boobies, then leaned in and grabbed his head from behind, thrusting it between her massive mammaries where he responded with the inevitable “brrrrrrrrrrrrr…..” as he shook his head side to side between them.

It’s the kind of behavior that can make you cringe if you see it from across the room, but sitting with my mate all I could do was laugh and enjoy myself. He was completely at ease and just having fun.
It was pure enjoyment.

You can read the rest of the story on Werewolf's blog.

Recent Bangkok Weather

And the weather in Bangkok recently has been perfect for “cold & flu season”. It’s been raining for long stretches at a time the past few days. Nights have been cool, requiring a blanket to sleep comfortably, but daytime temperatures have still been in the “sweat range”.

Also a lot of rain in Pattaya. This is a shot from Your Pattaya Photo Blog of Walking Street.

Entertainment Centre in Chiang Mai

The best bar complex in Chiang Mai is the Entertainment Centre about 200 yards west of Chanklan rd. It houses about 25 small bars and provides ample seating, most have small pool tables and on average 3 girls work in each bar. On most nights the total complex has about 75 bar girls and about 15-20 bar patrons. Great odds if you want to talk to the girl of your choice.
The largest shopping area in Chiang Mai is that in the Night Bazaar area - Chang Klang rd.

It’s large, dark and cavernous, featuring two floors, pool tables and a reasonably priced menu. The crowd is a mixture of Thais, from punks to middle-aged men, and a few foreigners. A variety of bands play here every night, performing everything from ska and rock to jazz and blues in both Thai and English.

265 Khao San Road. Tel: +66 (0)2 629 4477. To get to Brick Bar, head to Buddy Lodge and walk through to the very back of the building

Soi Cowboy Girls Are Begging For Attention

The lack of customers in Soi Cowboy is certainly having an affect on the girls.
They seem more forward with 'You can buy drink for me or not'.
They seemed to ask for a drink as soon as we got in a bar and ordered our first drink!
But I can live with that.
A laugh and a 'no' had the desired effect.

(The same can be said about Nana Plaza also, I think.)

This is a land where the boys are often prettier than the girls.
Someone told me that if it looks too good to be real, its a Katoey (Ladyboy.)
These girls are from Nana Plaza clubs Temptation, Cascade, Obsession, and Casanova.
