Whilst wandering around some bars in Bangkok the other day I came across this toilet. The area I was in has never struck me as having a high sanitary ware theft rate, but who am I to know?

It never ceases to amaze me how many Thai landlords bite their noses off to spite their face ! I live in a condominium complex that caters for medium income Thais and farang. The complex must house at least 2000 people, many of whom have cars, and clearly have spare money.

My mate mark has come over to Bangkok for a couple of weeks and last night we hit Soi Cowboy, and boy was it quiet. Compared with a year ago the customer numbers were at least 60 per cent lower.
