I went back to the states for a month and I think that’s what got me in a writing funk as there is next to nothing to do in my hometown. I happened to see Coolio at my buddy’s bar and that was probably the most god-awful thing i’ve ever seen. Well, until I went to Shampoo in Manila last weekend. I did take a trip to Vegas and the Rehab party at the Hard Rock was cool but it’s so far lost in my drunken memory that i can’t write much on it. I have started collecting business cards as I figure a scanned version would be a nice touch for you guys to download and give to cabs. I will get an admin to work on this and will get them all scanned in once I figure out how best to organize.
Since my last post I went to:
Hua Hin – Thailand — this place is quiet. A few bars, some really nice (but not cute girls) and one amazing Italian restaurant called Lo Stivale located at 132 Naresdamri Rd right across from the Hilton. I can’t say enough about this place, old skool Italian guy cooking up a storm. If you want a relaxing trip with a decent beach and a little fun to be had, Hua Hin is not a bad place to go. Bar fines are really cheap and it’s just real laid back and friendly.
Vung Tau – Vietnam — If you want to hit up a local style beach and have a lot of bars to party and find girls, Vung Tao is the place. It’s a quick 1.5 hour boat ride from Saigon so you can easily bolt over and do 1-2 nights. If you want a decent cheap hotel, check out Vitamin C located at 18 Nguyen Truong To Street – The number is (+064) 3553 738. There is a wild karaoke / massage place called the Pacific Club located at 4 Ly Tu Trong street. You can get a karaoke room, get wasted, then go over to massage and, well, you know… I didn’t think too highly of any of the bars. They were ok, but all pretty much the same, fun, drunk nights with decent girls. Good place to party, not a place to find top talent
Bangkok — Hung out on Soi Cowboy a bit as well as Soy 33. BKK is, well, BKK. Found an awesome bar called Mojos on Soi 33. — http://www.mojosbangkok.com — girls were smoking, food was good, live band, not a bad combo. I also highly recommend the IStyle Trend hotel which you can book on agoda.com. Top notch and i paid < $50 a night.
Angeles City — Ah, yes, i went back with my boy Big Mal and his even bigger boy, E. 3 nights there almost killed me. I pretty much stuck with a few spots again, Atlantis, Forbidden City, Genesis, and few others i can’t remember. This trip caused me to want to change the name of my blog as my new motto is Two Bitches and a Bottle — And it’s affordable in Angeles! I stayed at the Wild Orchid because everything was sold out and it was weak. For $100 a night the only good part was the pool. The service sucked, food sucked, and they are putting additional floors on the building so it was extremely loud from noon til 10pm. My sleeping hours!
My boys are in Pattaya now so I”ll try to get a guest post out of them. Next month i’m headed to Guangzhou for the Asia games and possibly Bali so I’ll be sure to get more posts going. I have a lot of pages to update in my business section so I”ll be primarily working on that until November.
peace love and happiness will all happen if you get out of the US
