Air Asia’s Tortilla A’la Tuna

May 3, 2012

Air Asia has introduced a few new menu items on board their Thai Air Asia flights. I’ve been flying with Air Asia for years and was never really interested in trying the menu items aside from coffee, tea, waters, etc. But on my latest flight from Bangkok to Ho Chi Min City (Saigon), I was browsing their menu and see they have the new “Tortilla A’la Tuna” and it looked delicious in the pictures.

I ordered it, it’s pretty big and meaty filled with tuna. And I absolutely love it! And it’s only Only 90 THB (approx $3 usd). “This Tortialla A’la Tuna recipe has been created by Seefah Restaurantโ€, said Mr. Tassapon Bijleveld, CEO of Thai Air Asia.

P72 Hotel Pattaya late checkout scam

April 1, 2012

Pattaya travelers beware! P72 Hotel in Pattaya Thailand are now scammers. Cracking down on late checkout customers and charging them for a FULL DAY for late checkout only by couple hours.

Picture of the P72 room

I’ve stayed in over 300 hotels in my life, in 25 different countries and this was the first time I’ve every experienced anything like this.

I’ve been to Pattaya many times, and stayed in P72 hotel on Walking Street many times, and never have a problem. But this day, around March 12th, I checkout at 3pm, and the front desk representative insist that I need to pay full price, we have an argument and I told them I’ll never stay there again, and he laughed and said “up to you, do what you want” in a very cocky and smug attitude.”

Thank you James for writing in about this. I’ve stayed at p72 Hotel many times before also, great location there on Walking St. and directly opposite from Lucifers nightclub. That is too bad they are now scamming for such a small thing, they must really be hurting for business lately. Anyways, thank you for the warning, I will NEVER stay there again as well.

P.72 Hotel and Bar (opposite Lucifers on Walking Street)

Help Cats and Dogs Affected by the Thailand Floods

November 1, 2011

Here is a public announcement from SCAD Bangkok, please help cats and dogs (and all animals) that have been affected by the flooding in Thailand.

Imagine being abandoned by your family? No food, no clean water, no shelter, no safety. This is the fate of many dogs and cats in Thailand right now, as the country battles with its worst floods in recorded history.

Please help me to support the forgotten casualties – the street dogs and cats, and family pets left behind by their owners in their rush to evacuate areas threatened by the rising waters. Donate now to help us support other groups during this terrible time and feed, transport and treat the animals most in need.

A sweet mother dog and her three four-week old pups are some of the lucky ones SCAD was able to scoop up before the water reached central Bangkok. Toong Saai (which means “sand bag” in Thai) was found with her little ones huddled behind a wall of sand bags at an evacuated restaurant. She had no water, no shelter, and her only food source was a huge bowl of rice – which was sour and covered in cockroaches and flies.

Working with a large network of animal welfare groups, hundreds of abandoned and homeless dogs and cats are in need of urgent assistance, and the only way we can provide help is with your donation.

Temple dog “Flood” was found on the brink of death while we evacuated our Dog Center. A small corner was found in the back of the SCAD truck and he was taken immediately to a supportive vet clinic for life saving fluids, vitamins and medication. He is still in that clinic and has a long road ahead of him to full recovery.

Please, I urge you to donate now to help dogs like Toong Saai and Flood.

I Love BKK animals

Thank you SCAD Bangkok, for helping to improve the lives of lonely animals in Thailand.

California Wow

July 24, 2011

California Wow Fitness Center Thailand
“The World’s No. 1 Fitness Centers”
Open Monday-Friday 06:00am – 22:00pm and Weekends from 06:00am – 22:00pm
Website: http://www.californiawowx.com
Call: N/A
Address: I frequently visit the Ratchada Esplanade branch, but there are 8 locations in Bangkok. There are: Chaeng Wattana, Ekkamai, Esplanade, Pinklao, Ratchayothin, Siam Paragon, Silom, and Sukhumvit 23. There are also fitness centers outside of BKK at Chiang Mai and Pattaya. (EDIT: Many of the California WOW fitness centers are closed due to some bankruptcy situation, only ones open now are Sukhumvit 23, Siam Paragon, and Chiang Mai)

California Wow is a well known fitness center in Thailand, possibly the most popular. I joined in March 2011 and so far my “California Wow Experience” is good, but not great. I’m not sure about all their branches, but the Esplanade branch is usually very busy. The locker rooms are big, but the space when dealing with lockers is very small. The benches are the worst ever, you can’t even set things on them. But as for fitness equipment and services, they are plentiful. Their services include XXX Pole dance, personal training, pilates, kickfit, Wow yoga, group biking, kick boxing, and many more.

I did experience some problems when joining California Wow. The people I spoke with were really a bit pushy, trying to push me to spend a lot of money that day. For example, trying to push on a 60,000 baht fee for long period of time, I was only asking them to join for 1 week (to test their services to see if I like it or not), yet they were pushing for 60k, though I did end up joining at some 24,000 baht for 2 years, for 2 branches (Ratchayothin and Esplanade). And if you forget your towel, you’ll be fine because they let you borrow towels for 50 baht per day (a bit expensive for towel renting, but oh well). If you have joined California Wow please post your join day experience, and your overall experience with CaliWow please, comment here.

Some good things, I like there are so many machines, so many to choose from, whether you are going for cardio, strength, abs, arms, legs, they do have it all! Also, if you are a True Home Wifi internet user, you can login to the True Wifi using your user/pass (you should have it from your True Home Wifi information). Also, a little extra perk, I sometimes see the most famous actress/model in Thailand, Chompoo Araya A. Hargate working out there.

Pringles Bangkok Chicken Wings flavored

June 28, 2011

I was in a Bangkok Fresh Mart today and I seen the Pringles “Street Food” edition, with the flavor of Bangkok Grilled Chicken Wing!
I bought them for 58 baht and had to try them…I must say, they are a little bland, but all in all, not too bad ๐Ÿ™‚

Huge Thai model named “Chompoo” I see her Esplenade today!

August 7, 2010

I just seen the big Thai star and celebrity model named Chompoo Areeya at Esplenade in Ratchada today. Just minutes ago. All of us living here or visiting here in Thailand see Chompoo Areeya on adverts all over the cities, but to see her in person was a bit surreal, very neat.

She’s even more pretty in person!

Now I’d also love to see Pachrapa Chaichua someday, aka Aum, pleaseeeee!!!!

American style Chilidogs in Bangkok

August 6, 2010

If you are like me, sometimes even the most simple basic American-style foods are missed sometimes. While I was shopping in Carrefour yesterday, I realized they have all the ingredients needed to make my own chili dogs!

Hot dogs from their meat department, sliced Kraft cheese, hot dog buns, and the only chili I could find was “Amy’s Organic Chili”.

They tasted great guys! I hope this opens your eyes to see, you can still get some of those foods that you missed so much from back home ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy

Thailand Pet Expo 2010 Pics

July 24, 2010

The Thailand Pet Expo 2010 was filled with tons of people today, Saturday July 24th. Every aisle was jam packed and there were mini traffic jams of people, pets, big dogs, little dogs and pet strollers. It was a lot of fun, to see everyone’s beautiful animals, whether it was the big huskies and great danes, or the most popular little dogs like the pommeranian (poms).

The fashion show was nice, with young models modeling cute new dog handbags and even had a show of some hip hop dancers and a dog riding in an automatic car!

I would like to thank Boonma (www.boonma.com) Moving and storage company for giving us our cute little stuffed animal teddy bear, and to all the exhibitors for putting a great show, all the fans and customers for showing great support for these wonderful little cuties and also, thank you to the animals, pets are a great friend and family member to all of us, if you give a pet the chance, they will love you unconditionally for the rest of your life!

Also, please support The Society for Promotion of Animal Welfare, SCAD Bangkok, and PETA Asia Pacific (PAP)

Anyone else have addiction for thai instant noodles?

July 23, 2010

I just can’t get enough of these thai style instant noodles. For example these extra spicy YumYum Thai Spicy instant noodles, this is Tom Yum Kung flavour. Aroi mak mak!

I’m pretty sure Mama soup noodles are the most comment and popular in Thailand, but I decided to try this YumYum brand since they have the extra spicy looking container, and they are delicious!!!
