Re: England's Game Sunday 7pm

I like the HH bar in Soi 80. Wide open and airy, knowledgeable crowd, very comfortable chairs and beer at a good price.

Re: What is your Passion in Life?

Not quite on topic, but very close. Over the years, I have made some bad career choices, usually not quitting early enough, but I have no regrets. You tend to regret the things that you didn't do rather than the things that you did.

Re: Dutchman Jumps From Hua Hin Hotel

This phenomena seems to be much more common in Pattaya--they call it "The flying farang" problem. There is a great suspicion there that many of them are pushed rather than slipped or jumped.
