Shakariki 432 great Japanese restaurantsHard to fault the food at this noisy authentic Japanese restaurant.

How good is this?

Shakariki 432 great Japanese restaurantsIs it any wonder this is now one of my favourite restaurants along with Genki in Soi 4 North Pattaya.

Is there a better beer than Asahi?

Shakariki 432 great Japanese restaurants

I don’t think so, the Belgium beers are great but my pick is Asahi. ๐Ÿ™‚

Fabulous colour combination

Shakariki 432 great Japanese restaurantsAnd what a taste, perfect.

Salmon Caviar washed down with Asahi.

Shakariki 432 great Japanese restaurants

As good as it gets. Plus they have a special on liquor, all you can drink in 90 minutes for B299.

Home delivery is a great idea.

The restaurant is two floors, upstairs is better.

Have I convinced you?

Villa Market is here

Avenue Pattaya Restaurants Supermarket

Avenue Pattaya Restaurants Supermarket Avenue Pattaya Restaurants Supermarket & a cinema complex are just some of the facilities at the 2nd Rd shopping complex.  The Robin Hood tavern which is part of the Retox group run by Simon Peatfield is also here on the 2nd floor.

 Villa Market

Avenue Pattaya Restaurants SupermarketAn excellent supermarket with lots of imported products including Australian beef. I do however prefer to shop at Big C Extra in Pattaya Klang for my meat.

Villa Market butcher

Avenue Pattaya Restaurants SupermarketHaving said that, there is certainly a great choice of quality meat products here.

Rib Eye grass fed Aussie beef 

Avenue Pattaya Restaurants Supermarket

A very good price at B306 or $12 AUD, very good flavour but a little tough, overall good value for the price.

Coffee shop inside Villa Market.

Avenue Pattaya Restaurants SupermarketEnjoy a coffee while you shop, quite a good liquor section here as well. 

Wine Connection

Avenue Pattaya Restaurants SupermarketExcellent liquor store however I noticed today it was not open till 5 pm.

Very good range from around the world

Avenue Pattaya Restaurants SupermarketI’m a great fan of their restaurants in Bangkok & Samui, sadly they seem reluctant to come to Pattaya.

Secret cities worth visiting

January 29, 2018 by David Herd | 0 comments

Interesting travel suggestions

Secret cities worth visiting

Secret cities worth visiting Secret cities worth visiting, well actually they are not all cities & not all secret, but they are all worth visiting. These are places mostly off the beaten track, places that many people may not have heard of.

Above is The lovely French village of Breil-sur-Roya which is particularly known for trout fishing. The Roya river runs through town and is open to trout anglers from March to September. Located in the mountains near the Italian border just north of the French Riviera.

Breil-sur-Roya

Secret cities worth visiting French and Italian rail lines run through Breil so it is very easy to travel anywhere. There is a great market every Friday at Ventimiglia on the border 30 minutes drive or 20 minutes by train from Breil.

Talking about Italy

Secret cities worth visiting In the Middle Ages and Renaissance era, San Gimignano was a stopping point for Catholic pilgrims on their way to Rome and the Vatican, as it sits on the medieval Via Francigena.  The cityโ€™s development was also improved by the trade of agricultural products from the fertile neighbouring hills, in particular saffron, used in both cooking and dyeing cloth and Vernaccia wine, said to inspire popes and poets.

Secret cities worth visiting include San Gimignano

Secret cities worth visiting  

San Gimignano is famous for its Medieval village architecture, unique in the preservation of about a dozen of its tower houses, which, with its hilltop setting and encircling walls form โ€œan unforgettable skylineโ€

 Have you ever heard of Florianopolis?

Secret cities worth visitingMost people outside of South America have not heard of this fabulous city which currently has an estimated population of 420,000 people. The Greater Florianopolis Metro area is home to about 1 million people. Florianopolis is a wonderful Brazilian city which should go on the bucket list for anyone intending to visit this wonderful country.

Friendly people who love to party.

Secret cities worth visiting January 11, 2009. Newsweek placed Florianรณpolis in the โ€œTen most dynamic cities of the worldโ€ list in 2006. Veja magazine, a Brazilian publication, named the city as โ€œthe best place to live in Brazil.

 Kagoshima Japan 

290c6fab-610c-4e33-bfce-51e4a16f12cb (1) Active Volcano Kagoshima Japan Sakurajima had been peaceful since 2013 until July 2016, then suddenly plumes of smoke, cracks of lighting and a flow of lava came bellowing out of Japanโ€™s Mount Sakruajima in July 2016. Located in a scenic bay on the southern island of Kyushu, this 1,117 meter high volcano has been a sleeping giant for the past three years prior to this fiery spectacle. The incident took place at 12:02 am on Tuesday at the mountainโ€™s Showa crater, which resulted in a 5,000 meter high column of ash โ€“ but officials say no fatalities have been reported. Credit to STACY LIBERATORE FOR DAILYMAIL.COM  Read about it here.

Fabulous food

37214528876_fe8ca2eb4c_cOne of the many reasons I visit Japan often is the fabulous food. A village near the railway station is called Kagomma Furusato Yataimura. There are about 25 small restaurants that seat only 8 or 10 people.

 Forster Tuncurry east coast Australia

51d2bd0e-6c11-4969-a12f-3da1f7c61000 A population of over 18,000 people it is a holiday destination for many Sydney people who are only a 4 hour drive away.

A great area for fishing & boating.

Secret cities worth visiting 

At the Northern tip of the Great Lakes, these twin towns are where Wallis Lake meets the ocean. The twin townships are surrounded by National Parks and feature majestic headlands and long secluded beaches. Boating, fishing, diving, paddling, cruises, whale watching and coastal walks combine with galleries, unique shopping and award-winning restaurants to create an experience rich coastal destination.

Mae Pim Gulf of Thailand

Secret cities worth visiting  Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim on the gulf of Thailand is only ninety minutes by car east of Pattaya, and 2 hours south of Bangkok. Beautiful white sand and clean water, and so quiet and peaceful.

Secret cities worth visiting

Secret cities worth visitingLots of great Thai food & seafood in Mae Pim.

Surfers Paradise Party Animals 1992

January 15, 2018 by David Herd

This is not a travel blog, it is part of my personal photo history. It seemed like Groundhog day. ๐Ÿ™‚

Surfers Paradise Party Animals

Surfers Paradise Party Animals

Surfers Paradise Party Animals, 1992 was just another year of fun & games on the beautiful Gold Coast. I was certainly among the main party hosts, I had a great home for entertaining & I loved have lots of beautiful girls around. 

Some of the usual suspects.

Surfers Paradise Party Animals Naturally when there were pretty girls around the competition between the guys was fierce. ๐Ÿ™‚

A rose between two thorns, I don’t think so. ๐Ÿ™‚

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsI guess there is no need to say I was enjoying life to the max.

Occasionally some of the girls would relax in the spa.

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsNaturally I always had my camera ready.

These girls loved nature

Surfers Paradise Party Animals And Dr Evil was always there with the camera. ๐Ÿ™‚

Roslyn & Jill looking good

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsI remember spending some “quality time” with both these lovely ladies.

 Jill & Sharon

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsAnother “daily double” I’m happy to say, (that just means I bonked them both. ๐Ÿ™‚ )we saw a show that night at Jupiters casino, I think it was Barry Humphries.

Andre Buzek dentist extraordinaire, (I don’t think so)

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsSadly my great mate lost his life soon after in a car crash in Cuba.

Girl of the year Kelly Davis

Surfers Paradise Party Animals I was lucky enough to spend a few months on & off with this lovely lady.

Here we are on New Years Eve

Surfers Paradise Party Animals Naturally Harley is locked & loaded once again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Big Steve Bristow (son of Tim) & Greg Johnston.

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsNow in 2018 Greg lives in Pattaya & runs a bar on the dark side, & Steve still lives on the Gold Coast.

 Birthday drinks at Melbas 7-7-92

Surfers Paradise Party Animals Our local drinking hole was Melbas on the Park.

Mister Melbas himself.

PaulAllen1992 (1)

The late great Paul Allen, a Surfers Paradise icon.

Talking about icons…………

Surfers Paradise Party Animals Daryl Beattie is a former Grand Prix motorcycle road racer, those bikes however all belonged to  Mick Doohan the living legend who won five consecutive 500 cc World Championships. The guy in the middle is a legend in his own lunch time, my good mate Ross Kennedy aka “Shoeless Joe”.

 Talking about legends…

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsHere I am giving my boat a good wash. ๐Ÿ™‚

A good looking bunch of babes

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsIt was Xmas day 1992 and we all had a great lunch at my home in 106 Upton St Bundall.  My main squeeze at the time was Kelly 2nd from the right, & my occasional squeeze was Jill standing beside her. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another night another dinner at Upton St

Surfers Paradise Party Animals Harley & his gay flatmate naturally came dressed in their army outfits. ๐Ÿ™‚ Tat’s Kandice on the left & Nicola on the right.

That night produced one of my favourite photos

Surfers Paradise lifeThis is a true classic.

Another classic from 1992

Surfers Paradise Party AnimalsLyn Goss & Roslyn provided the glamour & Tony Murphy & I contributed with a truck load of style. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can’t remember the other guys name.

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect

January 12, 2018 by David Herd

The end to another great year

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect place to live for a guy like me. Good friends & great restaurants, what more could I want? Plus a reasonably short plane ride to many outstanding locations. Above is the incredible view from my Markland apartment on the 20th floor.

Birthday July 7

Pattaya Life Absolutely PerfectWhere else but the magic Mantra?

My brother Warren & Greg Clee on the left.

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect    Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect

David Rose & Ray Ebzery on the right.

Birthday at the Atlantic bar

Pattaya Life Absolutely PerfectGeorge Hoult with Sharyn & Frank, all Aussies.

One of the many reasons we like the Atlantic Bar

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect Many middle eastern types who don’t spend money & aggravate the girls & customers are turned away, try that in Australia. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Two more Aussies agree with the sign.

Pattaya Life Absolutely PerfectFred & Bill think its a great idea & so do I.

Are you ready for this?

Pattaya Life Absolutely PerfectBest sunsets in the world.

 Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect

There something special about a silhouette.

Mark Yagala & Anne at Horizons.

Pattaya Life Absolutely PerfectMark of course is the guy who knocked off $50,000,000 on Wall St a few years ago, apart from that he is a very nice fellow. ๐Ÿ™‚

The sign said “boat for sale”.

Pattaya Life Absolutely PerfectThe fine print said “needs a little work”. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m sure Mark Yagala could sell it. ๐Ÿ™‚

One of my breakfast haunts.

Pattaya Life Absolutely PerfectThis is the branch at Central Marina shopping mall, I’m also a regular at The Bay on Beach Rd,

Celebrating my birthday

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect The girls stuck a candle in my croissant. ๐Ÿ™‚

Huge renovation at the Amari Hotel.

Pattaya Life Absolutely PerfectThis work will go on for a couple of years, it’s only 2 blocks from my condo.

From the Amari to the Dusit Thani

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect Dim Sum is usually at the Peak restaurant but was relocated to the Bay restaurant for a few weeks.  

Probably the best dim sum in Pattaya

Pattaya Life Absolutely Perfect Follow THIS LINK for some other good restaurants.

Filipino Flashback Manila Bar Scene

January 12, 2018 by David Herd

Part of my personal online photo albums, as opposed to my FiveStarVagabond travel blog.

Filipino Flashback Manila Bar Scene

Filipino Flashback Manila Bar Scene Filipino Flashback Manila Bar Scene started for me way back in 1980 as you can see from the above photo. I returned in 1987 & 1997 but have not been back there since.

Manilas’s famous Jeepneys

Filipino Flashback Manila Bar SceneJeepneys were originally made from U.S. military jeeps left over from World War II

The Duterte administration is demanding that any jeepneys in violation of updated regulations — including those built more than 15 years ago — are taken off the roads by Jan. 1, 2018. New rules on size, accessibility and engine quality could take thousands of vehicles out of service, as well as potentially endangering the livelihoods of drivers and others in the jeepney industry. The changes could also effectively mean the end of a Filipino design icon.

CNN November 2017.

It will be sad to see them go.

Filipino Flashback Manila Bar Scene 

Known in the Philippines as the “King of the Road,” jeepneys are also renowned for having designs as loud as their roaring engines. Embracing a “more is better” philosophy, owners use vibrant colors and busy ornamentation to decorate their vehicles.

On the bus to Angeles City.

OK, back to Manila.

The Firehouse in 1987

Filipino Flashback Manila Bar SceneI can’t believe 31 years have flashed by.

After all this time I understand the Firehouse is still going, and so am I. ๐Ÿ™‚

What time can I start having fun?

And yes, I did take her home with me. ๐Ÿ™‚

Can you blame me?

Absolutely gorgeous.

Am I missing work?

No way Jose.

Take a closer look at her hair

Filipino Flashback Manila Bar Scene Very curly indeed, her father was a U.S. marine. (what a great face she has)

Can’t help being popular. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand

November 27, 2017 by David Herd

Fascinating Thai history

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand

Ayutthaya Historical Park ThailandAyutthaya Historical Park Thailand is about 80 kms north of Bangkok, however we were travelling from Pattaya so it was a 2.5 hour drive. The first thing we saw was this little dancing elephant.

I don’t like to see them trained like this.

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand They are treated cruelly in the training process which is very sad.

Enjoying the ride

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand This activity is fine, but I wish they would stop the cruel training.

These ruins are all over the city.

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand It seems 90% were destroyed by people from Myanmar.  It was capital of the Kingdom of Siam, and a prosperous international trading port, from 1350 until razed by the Burmese in 1767.

 My travelling companions

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand

The 3 Amigos, Bill, Paul & Ron.

The local transport

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand These little Tuk Tuks are very cute.

 Hotel ext door to Temple

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand For an excellent room rate just book through THIS LINK.

Very impressive

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand I was surprised to see how many ruined temples there were.

Quite spectacular

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand Certainly exceeded my expectations. 

Wat Yai Chai Mongkhon

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand We struck a beautiful day with a light breeze.

Very popular with tourists

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand

Buddhist temple in Ayutthaya Lots of tourists everywhere.

Lots of cameras here. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand I prefer my Canon Ixus however I also use my pone or some.

There is a lot to enjoy here.

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand

We were too lazy to go up the stairs.

Too may Buddhas are never enough. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand I do like the yellow scarves. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here we are at  Wat Phra Sri Sanphet 

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand Wat Phra Si Sanphet was the holiest temple on the site of the old Royal Palace in Thailand’s ancient capital of Ayutthaya until the city was completely destroyed by the Burmese in 1767. Wikipedia

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand Not may tourists here.

Why did the elephant cross the road?

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand Because anything the chicken can do he can do better. ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally lunch then back home.

Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand Col One Love Restaurant was a bit of a tourist trap, we didn’t do our research & took our drivers advice. (kickbacks would apply here) Food was ok but not good value.

Thanks for visiting my Ayutthaya Historical Park Thailand photo blog.

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

July 1, 2017 by David Herd

Surf & Turf

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

 Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant offers good food in a great seaside location on Wongamat beach. There’s a huge menu & my only complaint is the wine cost, like many other Pattaya restaurants they do not offer a glass of house wine for between B120 & B150. This oversight certainly costs them customers.

What a fabulous view

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

I prefer lunch over dinner for two reasons, the fabulous view & I find the wine far too expensive at night.

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

As you can see the beer prices are fine.

Let’s take a look at the food

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

My seafood pasta was very good indeed.

Scallop Mornay was excellent.

Just looking at this photo makes my mouth water. ๐Ÿ™‚

Succulent Oysters

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

As you can see, the food is beautifully presented.

Spanish Paella

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

One of the many interesting dishes on the extensive menu.

 Chicken, onion rings, sweet corn , YUM!

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

 By now you probably realize why this is a favorite Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant.

Spinach soup, what a great color.

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

Often a soup & a selection of entrees suits me better than a large main meal.

TripAdvisor rating

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

TripAdvisor rate Surf & Turf 111 out of 870 restaurants in Pattaya. I’m a little surprised there are only 870, I really thought there were more. On another subject I have never been a fan of food served on wooden plates, I just wonder whether are are as hygienic as normal plates?
