From gay Pattaya to gay Munich - part one of a gay Asian and gay European trip
Suzy Size flees the scene: Disenchantment with gay Thailand leads to grand gay European tour
By Suzy Size, based in gay Pattaya, going on a grand trip through gay Europe
Suzy Size felt disenchanted with gay Thailand, her home of 16 years, lately and decided to go on an open end trip to good old gay Europe this very summer. She just loves Cities and is prone philandering for hours and hours through them. The reasons for said disenchantment with Thailand are plenty. Lately, to start with the obvious, those horrible, constant rains that hit Pattaya and made it impossible most of the time to go to gay Jomtien Pattaya beach. What else is there to do in Pattaya anyhow, besides getting drunk on expensive wine or cheap Chang beer? Well, one could argue, you can always go to Sansuk gay sauna when it rains cats and dogs and that is what Suzy Size just did shortly before the departure.
There was plenty of willing meat available at Sansuk - a 23 years old cute guy from Udon Thani found old Suzy Size appealing, completely free of charge by the way, she really wonders why? - at this even improved gay icon of Pattaya: There are two spacey hot saunas now and another added huge steam room on top of the building now. Suzy had a delicious dinner together with Punya, the owner of Sansuk Sauna and Sansuk gay hotel which offers promotional rates at 1750 Baht per night right now - and two distinguished gay English gentleman, Colin and Ricky, and famous Web designer Stanislaus Prostokovich, or similar, you know how impossible to remember those Slavic names are (gay or non gay). Said Stan is a genius, of course, he designed this Website of Sticky Rice Gay Guide for Asia and many others(Sansuk, Ambiance etc.), the only problem with him, he can be a bit slow at times, but who could not forgive a person like Stan?
Other reasons for the (hopefully temporary) disenchantment of Suzy Size with Thailand are: The silly visa regulations which give many people (gay and straight) the feeling they are no longer welcome in Thailand. Remember: As Suzy reported recently from her gay trip to Malaysia and gay Bali: In gay Kuala Lumpur (or any point of arrival in Malaysia) you get 90 days without visa immediately and as many times in a row as you might wish. Another reason for a lengthy summer vacation in Europe: The insecurity in the economy after the changed enforcement of the company rules which could very well lead to a severe property slump. The useless currency rules with mandatory 30% deposit that are meant to bring down the Baht which is indeed grossly overvalued at the moment; the costs of living are quite high in Thailand at the moment. Every sensible guy will delay investment decisions at the moment, following the old stock exchange saying: "Sell in May - and go away". That is exactly what Suzy does right now.
Then there are the political insecurities: Suzy Size remembers very well the events of May 1992 when the military crushed the pro democracy movement at Victory monument at not so very gay Bangkok. God, was she screaming (and running for cover behind a butch Thai guy and fellow demonstrator), reporting live for some Swiss media. Such a thing could happen again after that seemingly wonderful coup September 19 2006 that lead to this very indecisive government of pure amateurs and the present build up of anger which could explode any minute.
