Band for my wedding

by kc83

Hi All! I am getting married in Phuket in December and I am looking for a good band. I have done a search on the internet and there is not much that comes up. Can anyone recommend a band that we are able to get in touch with prior to going to Phuket??

Maybe you have to broaden your question, try this Expat forum for Phuket. Perhaps someone in that city has used a band for their wedding or party function.

There are loads of great Philippino bands around Phuket. I found this site, it may help you, but if you are a member of facebook, there are a few people I could introduce you to that may be able to help you, or I could ask on your behalf if you give me some details.

Eating Chillies

by Tina-Perth

It may surprise you to know that although the majority of Thai cuisine contains chillies, they were introduced to Thailand by the Portuguese and Spanish traders in the 17th century after taking it to Europe, Africa and Asia.

The Thais embraced chillies and took them as their own. They are known as “phrik” or “prik” in Thai. So, any dish you see with "phrik" in it, means it's hot. It has become such a tradition and so deeply entrenched in Thai culture that there is a Thai saying; “phrik kheu thai, thai kheu phrik”, which means “chilli is Thai, Thai is chilli”.

Thai people always had a love of hot, spicy food, but the heat in their food was based on black or green (young) peppercorns. Pepper is still widely used in Thailand, but the chilli has supplanted it as the main spice ingredient in Thai cuisine.

Chillies are very high in Vitamin C, A, B1-3 and E and have anti-bacterial properties which help fight bacteria in foods that are borderline unsafe to eat. Chillies contain the chemical capsaicin which is found mainly on the seeds and white pith. This fools the body into feeling pain, which then stimulates the release of endorphins. Chillies also stimulate your metabolism for at least 15 minutes after consumption. Only mammals have this response to chilli.

My advice is that if you have eaten some chilli which is uncomfortably hot, do not drink any cold drinks. The thing that works best for me is to eat some rice or other plain food, but I can eat more chilli than most of my Thai friends. I don't seem to have as many pain receptors to it. : )

Finding the real Thai People

by DONBURGESS

One good thing to do is hire a motor bike or Jeep and get away from the main towns, head along the coast away from PATONG and explore, drive down small roads, back lane ways roads you things there's nothign down there, go you will be amazed at what you will find. There are some wonderfull beaches to be found, small fishing villages and you can met the real Thai person not the ones that live and breathe the tourist trade. We found on our travels some realy great spots that we would never had seen if we stayed on the beaten track. The island is pretty big and its a wonderfull place so get out there and find your own piece of it.

LIVE MUSIC BAR

by trevndebs about ROCK CITY

Excellent live music venue situated along the beach road before you get to busiest part of Patong.
Live bands come on stage at 10pm, before that, it's big screens with either rock videos or live sports.
Happy hour cocktails are 2 for 1 from 9 to 10pm and they sell Strongbow Cider!
They have a selection of souvenir goodies for sale inside, t shirts, glasses hats etc.
If the music is too loud for you inside, there is an outside bar available.

They have an awesome sculpture guarding the door, check it out! HaHa, it's Patong.. are you kidding??
