I am in the midst of planning my trip to Thailand and I came across an unusual promotion which I am considering of taking up on.
The promotion is to stay at a 4 plus Star Resort in Phuket for 7 nights for a 30% discount to the normal price. It is located along Patong Beach.
But the catch is that you have to participate in a 90 minutes resort tour presentation during your stay. In addition, you need to satisfy the income test.
My first thought on this was - this was a time share promotion by
Your difficulty and the difficulty of every individual who ever desired
to achieve anything worthwhile, comes in the movement.
Don't always be intending to live a new life, but never find the time
to begin living it.
Most people fail because they never get started. They don't go. They
don't overcome inertia. They don't begin.
Begin to free yourself at once by doing all that is possible with the
means you have.
As you proceed in this spirit the way will open for you to do more.
Does anyone have any recommendation on Ho Chi Minh hotels?
I am looking for hotels in the price range of $70 to $100 USD a night.
I would prefer hotels to be close to transport and the city.
Thanks in advance.
True Story: The Sandpiper
She was six years old when I first met her on the beach near
where I live.
I drive to this beach, a distance of three or four miles, whenever the world begins to close in on me. She was building a sandcastle or something and looked up, her eyes as blue as the sea.
"Hello," she said. I answered with a nod, not really in the mood
to bother with a small child. "I'm building," she said.
"I see that. What is it?" I asked, not caring. Oh, I don't know, I just like t
Tonight, I would like to thank my mates Dave40, Gav, Kaitai, AussieMike, Wallace, Johnno and Steve.Together, we were able to raise $400 aussie dollars for the TLC event. This is at least $10,000 bahts.This is a great achievement in 3 days - especially if you consider the contributors came from different parts of the world - from Saudi Arabia to Bangkok, to cities across Australia. However, they are all "AUSSIES".And we will be donating all the money raised (less transactional costs) to the "Br

A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands. On their wedding night, she told her new husband, "Please be gentle, I'm still a virgin."
"What?" said the puzzled groom. "How can that be if you've been married ten times?"
"Well, Husband #1 was a sales representative; he kept telling me how great it was going to be.
Husband #2 was in software services; he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he'd look into it and get back to me.
I am interested in any feedback on the Grand President, President Park or the Royal President Serviced Apartments.
Any feedback from any past patron or any current or former staff would be much appreciated?
Thanks in advance.
Hi TF members,
I am just wondering whether it is safe for tourists to travel to places like Krabi, Trang and Hat Yai.
I have heard there is still trouble in Songkhla and Pattani which is not too far away (well at least on the map any way).
Thanks in advance for all your feedback.
Good day TF members,
It is time for a party in Melbourne, Australia.
Yes, the first TF party in Melbourne, Australia!!!!!
To be one of the first to attend this awesome TF party, you should either reside in Melbourne or visiting Melbourne at the time.
We want to hold this party at a Thai pub so to experience and live the Thai culture - we will be eating Thai food, listening to Thai and Western music and drinking Aussie beer.
So roll up if you are visiting or residing in Melbourne.
If you have a very good friend of the opposite sex who you have known for 3 years, who suddenly professes that she is in love with you (after she has just broken up with her boyfriend), would you;
- as a guy make the move?
- as a lady think she is on a rebound?
Over the last few days, I read with alarm at some of the most insulting things that has been said about Thai Women.
The worst being "Almost every Thai woman has a price or can be had" and "make no mistake it is all about trade when it comes to Thai woman".
Well, I want to write a journal on the positive aspects of Thai women by sharing from my own personal experiences.
A few years ago, I decided to travel to across Asia, and on my travel itinerary was Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thaila
Why is it so hard to give advice to people closest to you?Today, I had two arguments - one with my brother and the other with a close friend I had known for over 15 years.All I was doing was trying to ensure they avoid the mistakes and problems I had already encountered. But it blew back in my face.....and I ended up having to defend myself. Now, I am so perplexed!!!I can provide advice to my business clients and I get pay for it, but I can not provide free advice to those closest to me with
I have an office located in a shopping mall. My office is located at a corner and is facing a retail shop. There is about a 4 metre separation (the walking lane for shoppers) between my office and this retail shop.Since last Thursday, he placed a set of furniture (lounge chairs and a coffee table) outside his shop to sell. It straddles about 3 metres out - right in front of my office door.I was astounded and shocked. There was now only a one metre separation between the tip of the furniture to m
Oh what a day it was yesterday in Brisbane.Anything that could have possibly gone wrong did, except for my meeting with my client.My day started with me waking up late and in my rush to get out of the hotel room, I forgot to bring my map of Brisbane with me. I only realised this when I was half way into my journey when streets and buildings started to look strangely unfamiliar.In my panic, I started to reach for my map but that was nowhere to be found.Now, I was in a frantic state. I knew I ha
Good day,Any way, this is mainly a message to all my friends out there in cyperspace.I just want to say that there are some pressing legal matters (business) that I need to attend to, so I will be offline for awhile.I apologise to all of you who have sent me testimonials and messages of greetings that I have not replied back and will not have the time to reply back in the near distant future.I hope you can understand my predicament and you will give me an opportunity to smooth things over a few
Good Day TFers,I will heading off to China and HK around February next year.Any way, in the past, I have always gone straight through HK and into mainland China, but this time around, I would like to see some parts of HK.Although I have been recommended by a friend to stay in Kowloon, I am still keen to hear more from people who have stayed and lived in the city and have fond memory of places they have been to and the hotels they have stayed at.Preferably, I am interested in your views on the "r
