In Currys trying to get a refund on a broken telly and all the Team Know Hiw desk jockeys are on the phone to the Team Know How help line!

This week's annoyances

Mosquitos

Mosquito bites

Being quite allergic to said bites

Tropical rain storms  (first few are ok. The rest are a bit of a bore now especially when we want to go out for a meal).

Some (please note some) Brits abroad. One (bloke in his 60s) heard yesterday using an outdated and racist term for Chinese and within ear shot of the Chinese tourists. Heard today (60 old woman) moaning about the hotel breakfast being for the continentals. When there is bacon, sausage and any type of egg they want. If you don't like any of this stay at home in the UK.

Add Jetskis to above list. 

Noisy dangerous things when people who haven't a clue don't keep to the buoyed areas and come I to the swimming area. Just waiting to see someone be killed.

 Deet.

Ben's 100 Max Formula Insect Repellent - 95 Percent DEET - 1.25 fl. oz.

Nothing else. None of that shit Boots stuff they flogged you or those Mossie Wipes.

Check at the Pharmacy for Fenistel Gel. That is the best mossie bite cream should be available in Asia

Fenistil Gel - Fast Relief - Itching, Irritation, Pain, Stings, Bites, Urticaria, Minor Burns, Rashes - 30g

In your room get one of these VAPE Mossie Mats. We ALWAYS pack this when travelling in Asia

White Tee Shirts help. Not washing helps. Don't wear Perfumes

Booze fumes attract, Garlic Body Odour repels.

Invest in those Elephant Pants in the evenings - shoes and socks actually help - in worst case tuck the pants into the socks.

It's Thailand who gives a feck what you look like.

Also Lemongrass Massage Oil. If you cannot find the proper stuff rub that onto exposed skin and get some Lemongrass Jos Sticks for the room
