    Same subject of defamation, I have just read another one on facebook about the Group called The Breakfast Club. Apparently a member gave a restaurant a bad review and now the restaurant is threatening to sue or have them put in jail. This is outrageous, it is like tipping, staff expect a tip even if their service is bad. If you can only give good reviews what is there to keep the standards up? The idea of a bad review should be seen as feedback to make you up your game!!! This can only be bad for service.

    Trouble free. The board works really well IMO. Kudos for your fine work. Rather than just re-posting the same pics on multiple boards I'm going to try to keep the pics on seaselect exclusive to this board. I take enough along the way to do that I think?

    For a member to label a post as spam just cause he has seen it on another forum would make him arrogant in my eyes as he would be depriving other members who are only posting on one forum. I hope we do not have such arrogance here mate!!!

    You are being very gentle with them. "Nurture and coddle" seems more to the point ....? A defining point in my mind is the fact that Peter Storm allows their web address to be posted on this forum: http://secretsasia.com/ But if this web address gets posted on their forum it is removed: https://www.seaselect.com That speaks volumes IMO.

    And that is part of the problem, although a small part IMO. Mongers complain often about what how backward the nation is that they visit or choose to live in but scream to high heaven if the price of their beer or totty goes up in the least bit. We can have neat and tidy streets with storm sewers that work and police who aren't bent but that is gonna cost you.

    Sunken World War II Aircraft Carrier Found by Deep-Sea Expedition Known for deep-sea exploration efforts uncovering military ships in the past, Paul Allen's personal search team has helped to discover a lost aircraft carrier. The U.S.S. Lexington has finally been found, decades later and thousands of feet underwater. The crew of Research Vessel Petrel (R/V Petrel), the exploration ship of billionaire and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, discovered the wreckage of the World War II-era aircraft carrier Monday. It was found about two miles below the surface of the Coral Sea and more than 500 miles off the eastern coast of Australia. The Lexington is one of the first aircraft carriers built by the U.S. It went down in 1942 with 216 crewmembers and 35 aircraft on board, and it's finally been found. Wartime Relics Allen is the son of a WWII veteran, and the R/V Petrel team had been planning to locate the Lexington for about six months after they were given coordinates for where the sunken ship might be. For this, they retrofitted their 250-foot vessel, originally deployed to the Philippine Sea in 2017, with subsea equipment that can reach depths up to three and a half miles. (Read: "How Microsoft Billionaire Found Largest Sunken Battleship") " We're dealing with an environment out here that is very harsh," Robert Kraft, Allen's director of subsea operations, told media. "It's thousands of meters deep and it's very unpredictable. We're putting, you know, a lot of electronics and high voltage down in very deep waters and sea waters where it shouldn't belong, and so that always presents challenges." First commissioned as a battlecruiser, the Lexington was launched as an aircraft carrier in 1925. On May 4, 1942, the ship fought with the U.S.S. Yorktown against three Japanese carriers in the first carrier-on-carrier battle in history. The Lexington sustained multiple hits from bombs and torpedoes until succumbing on May 8. A secondary explosion had set uncontrollable fires raging through the vessel, triggering the call to abandon ship. The U.S.S. Phelps delivered the final torpedoes that finally sank the ship. (Read: "Wreckage of WWII-Era Warship U.S.S. Indianapolis Found After 72 Years") With U.S. ships nearby, 2,770 crewmen and officers were rescued from the doomed vessel. "Lady Lex" in better days. Several ships went under along with the Lexington. The U.S.'s Sims and Neosho succumbed to the waters, and Yorktown sustained damages. The Japanese carrier Shōhō also went under, and the fleet carrier Shōkaku sustained significant damage. The Battle of the Coral Sea halted a Japanese advance, and it also marked the first time two dueling ships never came within sight of each other. https://news.nationalgeographic.com/2018/03/paul-allen-lexington-underwater-discovery-spd/ And some of the latter pics nicked off the web. 219 crew members were lost with the ship.

    Millions in China Journey Home for Lunar New Yea February 14, 2018 2:57 pm BEIJING — Millions in China were boarding trains, planes and automobiles Wednesday as the Lunar New Year travel rush, the world’s largest seasonal human migration, reached its climax. ..... ......Increasing numbers of Chinese have also been traveling abroad in recent years, reflecting rising prosperity among the urban middle class. More than 6.5 million are expected to head overseas this year, according to a joint report from travel agency Ctrip and the China Tourism Academy. Travelers have booked voyages to more than 68 nations and regions, the report said, with Thailand, Japan, the United Arab Emirates and Nordic countries among the top destinations. The average Chinese tourist spends about 9,500 yuan (USD$1,500) on a Lunar New Year trip, the report said. http://www.khaosodenglish.com/news/international/2018/02/14/millions-china-journey-home-lunar-new-year/ Chiang Mai has been a hit with Chinese tourists during lunar new year for quite a while now.

    Made a trip down to Bali Hai Pier today with the Teelack on her day off. Russians, some Thais and a whole lot of Chinese tour groups coming and going on the ferries. At night on Walking Street it appears like the flag carrier is more likely to be the tour guide, but it seems during the day time it is more just whoever drew the short straw and got stuck with the job. The flags are rally points when the tour guide has something to tell them or wants to collect them all I think? The persons who have the job seem to be disinterested participants? So after a bit of people watching.... ....I started to just focus on the flag bearers, 555.

    I was talking to an acquaintance about his visa run trip to Laos. He said when he arrived at immigration at Vientiane airport he had all the forms, money and pics ready, but mistakenly went to the wrong counter. The officer told him he needed to go "over there". He was a little bit passed off, and exclaimed "for fucks sake". The immigration officer slowly rose from his seat, drew himself to his full 5'7", and said "Have you a problem.". My acquaintance quickly apologised an a scampered, tail between his legs, to the correct desk. The italics include what I can imagine it looked like, but the gist is correct

    The local coppers were doing a blitz on no helmets by the old bridge in town which was fine as we all had helmets on ---- however many Khmer and quite a few foreigners were caught in the trap as well. Over 100 bikes were impounded. Nobody caught was looking happy No helmet rider or pillions and not done up helmet straps were the targets This was announced on the 1st Jan as a blitz across Cambodia and it is pretty severe punishment 1: Bike impounded for 3 days and a decent fine 1st offense 2: Bike impounded for 3 months and a larger fine 2nd offense 3: Bike confiscated and jail time 3rd offense Made me wonder what the tourists do as mostly you have to leave your passport as security and the rental company wont return it without the bike returned. What if you were moving on the next day? Then the issue of unregister and no plate local bikes - how do theu prove it is their bike when the time is up? Next day the cops were on the Snooky road and had about anotheer sixty bikes confiscated Also on the Kep road with another bounty Day after they were back on the Snooky road so they are working hard

    Just did a trip to Kampot with BM Scott2525 and my gf on the recently revived rail service that goes from PP to Sihanoukville with stops in Takeo and Kampot. I will do a seperate report on Kampot, Kep and Bokor but this one will be about the train only. Tickets for 3 adults and 2 motorbikes was $56 return - a bargain when you consider you probably would spend $5 in petrol riding there and have to fight your way out of PP and, although the road is pretty good and not as busy as the Snooky road, it would be a hot ride nonetheless. Currently the service runs only on Friday / Saturday / Sunday with mostly 2 trains per day in each direction but it is hoped this frequency will be increased in the high season which is about to begin.

    Teelack tells me they are required to wear black for another two days, the 28th and 29th and then things are back to normal colors. Not to be disrespectful but it is about time. It's been over one year now. The Land of Smiles has turned into the Land of Black. i had a friend fly in from Malaysia a couple days back and he said immigration at Swampy was very, very light and his priority pass was of little value since there were no lines. All of these holidays and business disruptions have taken a toll on the economy. It's about time for Thailand to get back to work.

    I'm staying close to home for the next few days because of the special days for Rama Nine so I'm catching up on photo files. Some I never got around to re-sizing and posting from February...... I doubt I will ever learn to appreciate "the look"? I think there may be some fresh sausage in this pic? What it looks like before and after I've chosen my target.

Settled into the house and went to meet Ned Kelly in town but hit a major traffic jam crossing the bridge but got to the Gym Bar on time. Big rain storm was brewing Pissed down for an hour or more heavily yet when we went to eat at Veronicas a km away it was dry and hadn't rained at all Had the fish and chips again - pretty good

    It really depends on the person coming here and how their attitude is. For me I found that I became very cynical with Pattaya, I had the feeling than that I had to always be careful with quite a number of people both thai and farang. Here in Cambodia it was strange for the first few weeks cause the people were so friendly and the did not seem to be any angles. I am saying this because I have heard itcomments from both Cambodians and Barangs about how people are treated. If you come here with a friendly, polite approach, look respectable and treat people with respect you will have a lovely time and it will be cheaper than thailand. The girls here are not the hardened thai girls, they are a lot more shy and often looking for a boyfriend. Quite a high percentage will not be quick to go with you until they know you a while. It is not the quick turnaround short time like pattaya. If you have the mentality thinking that you can get very drunk and groping with the girls they will shay away. I have heard comments from some girls about this and they hate it. Having lived here for a few years it is really lovely to have girls that are far more genuine and polite to be with. You do not get the mind blowing experiences that you get in Pattaya so if that is what you are looking for stick to that but if you want a genuine GFE Cambodia would be more attractive to you.
