Oscar In Asia – SPECIAL – Beans

Not sure what the British fascination is with these really bad canned beans. Seems they want to put them on everything. So I’ve been staying at the Queen Victoria Inn (an English run hotel), which is the same as living directly above an English Pub. So it seems all my breakfast selections involve BEANS for [...]

OscarInAsia – Episode 0 – The cheesy goodbye!

Went to Munchies 420 Cafe in Sarasota for my last meal. Unfortunately, I lost some of the original footage… But here’s what I got…

I went to Asia early…sort of

Well, the Asia Restaurant down by the airport is almost like being in Asia, right?? Good food. I liked the Krab Rangoon! Yes, there were more Rangoons than that, but I “eated” them! Finally figured out what Hoisin sauce was good for as well… I’m down to 22 days! Woot!

One more thing…Misc Thailand pictures

Last batch of miscellaneous pictures of Thailand. My bed at the Nana Hotel in Bangkok The Bangkok Skytrain. Tallest building in Bangkok, the Baiyoke Tower II Apparently Thai’s think that bowling is hip!  (Ad for bowling alley in Siam Paragon, Bangkok) I’ve heard once you go black, you never go back! Maybe that’s what this [...]

Fried Bugs and Pizza Hut!

Well, these are actually two separtate things!  First as promised in a previous article, some better pictures of the fried bugs you can find for sale all over Bangkok. More deep fried bugs! Then I went to Pizza Hut!  Here’s the pizza I supposedly ordered….:( You would think after visiting this country for almost a [...]


No, it’s not the cullinary equivalent of Disneyland.   It’s a supermarket chain in Thailand! The supermarket is like what you would see anywhere else really.  The big draw is the cheap eats lunch counter that sits inside!  This lunch counter is legendary in the Bangkok message boards as it is very cheap, has a selection [...]

Japanese cuisine at MBK Center

At MBK shopping center there is piles of options for eating Japanese food. I was recently at this huge mall again, this time with my occasional guide Lucksika.  For lunch she wanted Japanese food (she has lived in Japan for seven years).   So we went to the Tokyu department store in MBK and had [...]

Siam Paragon / MBK trip

So I went to Siam Paragon super mall today, 10 floors tall, each FLOOR about the size of  Sarasota Square.    They finished it in 2005, so I got to briefly see it on my last visit here, but this was my first extended visit. It is REALLY high end.  All the major designers (think [...]

Return to Bangkok

Sorry for the bunch of super-weak updates lately.  I’ve had a bit of the “Bangkok Belly”, so I had to stay near the hotel for a few days.  But I’ve been here in Bangkok, back to my favorite hotel.   I got room number 664, which makes me the “Neighbor of the Beast”.   I wonder what [...]

Goodbye Pattaya!

Well, here’s a number of pictures I took in Pattaya that fail at having enough information to justify their own posts. First up…. random neon lights….  Nam Sing Restaurant… all manner of stuff I will never eat!   Even more seafood…  I hope they STOP swimming before they are served!  The claws of the crab are [...]
