I'm 14st 12lb.

Just for fun, I'm going to do a 'fad' diet to kick-start my weight loss. (What's the worst that can happen?)

The chemical diet, reproduced below.

No proper cups of tea will be a bit of a bugger.




Horrible fad diet done.

Current weight: 14s 2lb.

Was it worth it? Mixed feelings really. Pleased with the weight loss in a week, but my God it was awful.

The Masked Singer.

This is the new show that's sweeping the nation. The girls put it on and I watched 10 minutes before fleeing to the camper.

Jeebus H Price! I could feel my brain cells dying in their millions.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

Currently looking at DIY Bangkok - Finding somewhere nice to use as a base and spending 7/8 days exploring, then maybe a river cruise. (Did one before on the Nile and loved it) Mekong river looks good, would mean flying into Siem Reap and then either home or back to Bangkok from Ho Chi Minh City.

Tom are you passing through Siem Reap or stopping off for a few days? I suggest you stop and do a guided tour of the Angkor Wat, it's incredible. Siem Reap incidentally translates to defeat Siam.




Yes Kev.

Rough plan is to fly into Bangkok, book an inexpensive hotel with a pool to use as a base while we spend about 5/6 days exploring, then fly to Seam Reep for the Angkor Wat tour and then on a river boat for 10 days finishing in Ho Chi Minh City with an excursion per day built in. Then a couple of days in HCMC, fly back to Bangkok and home from there.

Only about 18 passengers on the boat so should be quite nice. Apparently the cabins are a bit small but obv that wont bother us and I hear the food is fantastic.
Haven't got it all sussed yet though so not counting my chickens.

This boat trip sounds just right.   I went through the Mekong Delta by bus, and did a boat trip there.  A boat trip the whole way sounds great, and I wouldn't fancy some big boat as you wouldn't get close to stuff.   I have never been to Ankor Wat, but if I had a bucket list, it would be there.  Shame you can't go all the way from Laos, but I read the river goes North from there, so.ig just isn't possible.  Maybe it needs two trips.

The whole trip sounds good, just try and avoid the really wet season in Bangkok, as the flooding can get really bad.


Thanks Doobs. If we do go it's likely to be in March.




if your'e going to Thailand around March, i'd hold off for April and go for Songkran (their New Years), greattime to be in Thailand especially in the remoter parts where its just a reason to party

I'm worried about it being too hot by April though, especially in Cambodia.

It will be hotter in April and if you don't want to have water chucked on you when out walking, avoid Songkran!

yeah but the more civilized parts stick to the traditions, its only the places like Puket, Pattaya and Bngkok where you get proper drenched....but even if you do its great fun and cooling

^^^   Story?  ^^^

The Songkran Festival is also a period when the Thai people cleanse and pour water mixed with Thai fragrance on Buddha images.

This however been extended to throwing water at anyone walking down the street.  If you do go for a walk in Bangkok during this period be prepared to get drenched several times.  Farangs (this is what Thais call foreigners) are fair game!!!

Not my idea of fun but each to their own.

Google Songkran and you will see video clips of what goes on.

While sitting in the doctors waiting room today I was idly thumbing through this magazine.

This bit in particular caught my eye.

Lawks a mussey! It's like, 60% adverts.

It's astounding that people will pay good money for the privilege of reading someone's sales pitch.
