      #15/4: do they need a plumber to fix the light? (haha) and in #16/3 and 5, I really like that dresser, as it remind me of something out of an old silver polished aircraft. Nice pictures, J-O

        I enjoyed that bLOG/Throwback, and my favourite things are the yellow chair and 'desk' at the floor length window, the circular carpet, and the similarly colourful 'treasure chest' for the drinks stuff.

        Then my memory seemed to be telling me to scroll back, and on re-reading your description of the rooftop pool, it all became clear. Of course! - You had posted a video clip, back near the beginning of vLOG.
        I eventually found the link to YouTube:-
        https://youtu.be/dCWNnVDpT_8

        The marvellous thing is that in the intervening years that video has accrued over a thousand views!

        I loved that video and here is what I wrote about it.
        Bangkok! That special time that's neither day nor night. That feeling of being apart and yet part of the city that never sleeps. That panning - –to and fro, to and fro - so
        soothing and yet restless at the same time, imparts a frisson, perhaps a touch edgy and mysterious. I'm caught in the spell. This has joined my all-time favourites of your videos. Far from being just another hotel pool clip, it says more than many a full-length feature.

          HAHAHAHA... plumber required to replace broken bulbs.

          And yeah, I thought the exact same thing about the dresser and drawer. Reminded me about old style ocean liner suitcases, or a shiny veteran aircraft.

          Thank you so very much... had completely forgotten about that short video from the hotel's pool. Thank you for remembering!

            Phatthalung Band

            Today, a perhaps slightly different entry to my travel bLOG here at CaptainsVoyage Forum. I would like you to meet my Thai family, my Thai brother.

            Back in September last year, I attended another concert of my biggest idol and very good friend. The concert took place at Phuket (Thailand), and it was the only reason I traveled round-trip from Bangkok to Phuket.

            Phatthalung Band is perhaps not the biggest and most popular band in Thailand, but they are currently the only band which sings the songs of my heart. Their music lives inside me and I know nearly all their songs by heart already. I have private shower concerts for myself each and every day of the week, and the majority of songs performed are those of Phatthalung Band.

            The artists of this band are like family. I seldom meet people that makes such a big impact in my life, and that extends their most heartwarming friendships like they have done. Pong, the main singer is one of the greatest people I have ever met. He is always smiling infectious big smile, and are always polite and friendly beyond words. We are family, we are brothers from different mothers.

            I have met the band several times over the past handful years, from several concerts and also privately when time permitted us to catch up.

            I highly doubt any of the people roaming CVF will have an interest in this band, but just in case, this is their youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPJ...yJQrcQf2StKKfg
