in praise of ARI

Im condo-hunting and watching Gordon Ramsay at the moment...

Condo-hunting. This is my number one activity at the moment. At the moment I live in Sathon but that will have an end - in 10 days....then I am off to Europe for the trip of the year...Switzerland, Italy and Belgium...see the common theme? CHOCOLATE!!!! Lindt milk chocolate and toblerone in Swiss, black chocolate and coffee in Italy and truffles (mhmmmmmmmm, it's melting in my mouth) in Belgium...



Can you see the little salmon-coloured star? That's ARI.

Anyway, I thought I had a condo at Noble Lite in Ari. I had been looking at that freaking condo for like 100 times and thought I had it, but then it slipped. Oh well. Now I have three options....two in the area of Ari and one on Sukhumvit 26...I dont know anything about Suk 26...because obviously it's a neither gay area nor an area that's close to my current home or my workplace. Suk 26 is basically all-Japanese and EXPENSIVE. I dont think I can (and want) to afford it.


So Ari it should be then. I am in love with Ari, honestly. Visit this freaking place on 6pm, eat at one of the many streetfood places, go shop some good European chocolate at Villa Market and eat an IBERRY ice cream while sitting outside. You are guaranteed to be looked at by some really handsome gay - that is if you look as good as I do *blink*.


I need to talk a bit more about the gays in Ari. I have been there about half a dozen times now within 2 weeks and gosh, every time I see heaps of eye-candy. It's not the reason why I want to move there but it's part of it. The kind of people that live there are a very very cool bunch. Not the pretentiousness of Sukhumvit. Not the moneyboyness of Silom. And not the teenieness of Siam. They seem quite edgy, and not so uptight and are in their mid-20s - ideal. Also, my place should be more towards Saphan Kwai, so I can escape to the moneyboy's homes if I get sick of the edgy Ari-gays. *blink*


You can read about ARI here. Not very insightful but not bad...


Alright ARI, watch out, a bitch is on the way to come and GET you!!! I will OWN ARI!!!




Regarding Gordon Ramsay....well...I have always LOVED cooking. I really want to know all the ingredients of products so I can make it myself - and alter the recipes...so I have been watching Gordon Ramsay...I love this guy. He lets some guy fondle his cock one time, kisses his male-friends on the cheek and says: I have many gay friends and they love pastry. He's a genius!

I always associate Ari to Chakran sauna and VClub massage.... haha. Those cuties you saw might be the patrons of the sauna.

NAUGHTY. there's more to ari than saunas. just like there's more to bangkok than sexclubs and moneyboys. learn people learn!!! that being said, some of them may be patrons...

I live in Ari, and you are so right. Very gay indeed, and yes in a different way than other places. And so near to Saphan Kwai is good too. I think the Saphan Kwai and Ari area is the number two most popular place for gays in BKK.

that is awesome to hear, mister anonymous. maybe we'll be neighbours;)
and I totally agree with you regarding the gays: DIFFERENT than the other places. well from what I've seen so far...
I think saphan kwai has a few gay host bars, mostly frequented by thais or other asians. I have never been to these. and I also heard and read that many moneyboys working in Silom live in Saphan kwai apparently...
