Thai pancakes = best pancakes

Thai pancakes = best pancakes

Let it also be known that these are the best Lay's. Despite the name, they're not spicy.

3 km hike in 80% humidity

3 km hike in 80% humidity

The views though.

It’s 8pm over here and my friend and I are about to go to the “party” side of the island for some drinks.

Phi Phi is split up by sections, with an entire half being dedicated to partying late into the night on the beach as well as hostels, a quarter for hotels and nicer restaurants, and a quarter for a more local vibe. That’s where the cheap food is oppo. Had a...

Day 11. Made it to Koh Phi Phi

Day 11. Made it to Koh Phi Phi

No cars.

No roads.

White sand.

Gorgeous cliffs.

Endless bays.

Cats, everywhere. Just chilling.

It's a good place.

I'm a good person

My friend just vanished when we were walking a few kilometers to a pizza place, and after I noticed that...

Well. I really wanted the pizza.

He’s probably not kidnapped.

Anyways, how are things, OPPO? This place seems different from my current timezone.

Selling the Miata

Selling the Miata

Working on the ad right now, and hoping to sell it very soon after getting back to Seattle. In a perfect world I’d have the sale ready to be made before I flew back home.

I have no idea what to price it at though. I put up a very quick teaser on a small miata forum with just one image and a few of the most valuable parts highlighted at $7000 and got a ton of responses, so I pulled the ad. I...

I just did the dumbest thing of my entire life #drunkstorytime

I just did the dumbest thing of my entire life #drunkstorytime

And yet even just an hour afterwards, I can already tell it’s one of my most cherished memories. Picture is of my unrelated Hake fish n chips dinner.

Let’s back up.

5pm. Shooting pool in the hotel lobby. Trying to get the *feel* back. I used to be a competitive pool player, but after more than a decade those skills dried up. That said.... After whooping my buddy a few times and playing some...

Seabass makes for some bomb fish n' chips

Seabass makes for some bomb fish n' chips

Here’s the view from the hotel pool. Bangkok knows how to do rooftop activities right. I’m going to try to make it over to the rooftop tennis courts in a few hours...

And the view at night....

Dots - carbon-fiber hood, tailgate, massive boost gauge....

Bangkok car scene is amazing. All the tuk-tuks have fat exhausts and sound like V8 mustangs. They’re Abarth levels of “what the fuck was that?!”

Also, I saw a slammed pink taxi on TE-37's.

Bangkok bound, flying through a typhoon

Bangkok bound, flying through a typhoon

It’s been... Bumpy, to say the least.

Having lounge access has been a godsend though, and really alleviates some of the typical travel anxieties. We started the morning off right, with a 20 year-old Cognac, glasses of Krug, some rice balls and sushi. Not what I was expecting to find in Narita.

Hopefully we set down in Bangkok soon. Any tips on things to see?

Bonus V I E W S

The scale is...

And a late dinner. Tried an American style steak then grabbed drinks at a jazz bar. The steak was the second best I've ever had, and the jazz bar was nice. Finding quite places that aren't packed is a godsend in Shibuya, and if they have good ambience and music too? Jackpot.

I always assumed public transportation was universally terrible

I always assumed public transportation was universally terrible

Seattle public transportation is a joke, and pricey for what you (don’t) get. Not to mention the endless “ infrastructure improvement” projects that always that either go nowhere, or don’t make a noticeable positive difference. NYC subways—while providing some great people watching—smelled like piss at best and were full of people that seemed dangerously unhinged. Europe was disorganized and...

Oh how the mighty have fallen

Oh how the mighty have fallen

Looked nice though. Like an Infiniti Q- something or other. Which... Might be what it is?

Of all the automotive places I’ve checked out, Nissan in Ginza has been the least interesting. The above skyline, an R35 Nismo, and some lame cookie-cutter concept cars. I was hoping to at least see the IDX or the GTR concept from a few years back.

Had some kind of banana alcohol at some...

You ever accidently order 2 pints of tomato juice cider in an underground metal bar?

You ever accidently order 2 pints of tomato juice cider in an underground metal bar?

Something was lost in translation, but getting shit faced at a tiiiiiiiny bar while listening to American and Japanese metal is something I won’t soon forget. Rockoholic is easily my second favorite bar I’ve been to this trip.

Here’s a car to keep this blog... ON TOPIC

Bathroom remodel brainstorming

Bathroom remodel brainstorming

I’ve been thinking about a bathroom remodel for years. Slowly but surely, a plan has been forming. Here are some of the key elements.

Shower only. I don’t use the current bath, and I don’t care about potential resale or code issues that may come about from not having a tub.

No threshold between the shower and the rest of the bathroom. I like the clean look. Plus I could just float the entire...

I just washed these windows, AMA

I just washed these windows, AMA

err, wait. That’s not right. I’m the tile guy now! 18" tiles with 1/16" joints, because the manufacturer reccomended 1/8" joints would look massive. Schluter trim on the inside of the window, matched so well to the tile that most people so far have assumed it was tile. Reveal around the window has been kept a perfect 5/8 at every point, tiles are all flush, plumb, and level (except for where...

Restaurant history, and stuff

Restaurant history, and stuff

I cleaned up my grandma’s kitchen and snapped a few new pictures of the old menus she has up as wallpaper. Some real gems in there, from decades firmly in the rear view.

What I wouldn’t give to be able to buy a good cut of steak, pitcher of wine and tip generously... For under $10.

Speaking of my grandma, earlier this week she came outside from an exercise class to find her taillight...
