Newbie joins up

Post by Dr Smiley » Mon Dec 11, 2017 1:48 pm

Hi everyone

I am Amarjit Gill (Amit for short). I lived in Nottm as a dentist and London as a business development consultant. All that is now irrelevant as I'm another who is in semi retirement / long term vacation and chosen Hua Hin as the place to check out.

I've done all the members clubs such as Round Table (my favourite) / Rotary & Masons. Been out of them for years now.

I love eating and drinking so I have to reluctantly go to the gym to control the obvious effects of indulgence. I like to cycle, but don't know the safer places to try for that yet in HH.

I have the dry English sense of humour & happy to meet others with thick skin who enjoy banter. Other than that I will try to give as much to this forum as I take. I will arrive in HH on Sat 13th Jan to see how much pleasure it gives me and I can return!

Thanks for reading, if you got this far!

Welcome from a fellow retired dentist.
True Arena gym just off Soi 112 is excellent. There is a very good cycle path that runs from. near Soi 116 to halfway to Pranburi. For Thai food, Moonsmile in the Bintabaht is very good. For drinks,cocktails the rooftop bar East (soi94) is cool. For live music Thaiwaii at Kho Tao on a Sunday is very good - nothing fancy think Chicago blues club. That just a few pointers for you.
Big Boy has posted details of day trips,points of interest - use the search engine. So enjoy your stay.

Welcome from a fellow retired dentist.
Now I get the moniker! :D

Welcome to the forum Doc - my wife and I fell in love with the place when we first visited some years back. Unfortunately due to various commitments have been away for far longer than we would like.

You'll find a mass of information and plenty of helpful souls here and I'm sure you'll enjoy Hua Hin and the area come January.

:cheers: :cheers:

Welcome to the forum Dr Smiley


If you are ever anywhere near Soi 6 I'll gladly meet up for a beer or ten. I'm South African but enjoy dry English humor, and yes I have a thick skin. You have to have if you work offshore lol, but I no longer work offshore.

I have to be honest, one thing I miss is the dry sense of humour over beers. The Singaporeans either dont get the jokes or even worse, get offended. S I have missed that past time! So Takiap - I'd like to take you up on that offer as you are only 3 miles away from my hotel - can we exchange emails / Whats App details ?
