Walking home from Silom Complex through Soi Sala Daeng, I noticed the soi blocked by police and electricity company cars and several utility poles broken, resulting in part of the soi being without electricity. The center of the accident seems to be at Senso, with structural damage to upper floors. As far as I can judge, it will take days until all damage is repaired and everywhere has electricity and data connection again.

I saw the news on TV this afternoon.
The residents at the nearby condo “ Silom Grand Terrace” were told electricity will not back up today.

I was by there a few hours ago. It was a mess. Looked like maybe one pole snapped and then that took others.
Drew quite a crowd of people.

looks serious, hopefully nobody was crushed.

 

Don't they have better place to crash a crane than atop on my favorite , beside Arena,  massage place ?

I just came by there on the way back to my condo at 1:30am. Street still closed and a security officer keeping people out, but many of the trucks and mess that was there this afternoon are gone. It’s a pretty rainy night so doubt much work will get done till it stops.

Currently at Moonlight, there's a rainy night promotion: first drink 350baht, second drink 200bath. I didn't ask if a third or subsequent drinks came with additional discount.
I must add that the 10:30 pm show was worth the entrance fee which was inclusive of the first drink, both avec ou sans alcohol.

isn't regular price 300 and second drink 150 ? LOL

 

( once in Mandalay  I was buying small painting and price for one was 10 $  but I was told ' we have promotion , 2 for 25 " , I'm not making it up, picture on my wall is silent witness. 

 

On serious note - do they still have model parade and if yes , how many boys on the display ?

There were about half a dozen men with real male musculature that would be of particular interest to Vinapu et al, a dozen more with potential to grow, while the rest were about right to be on stage, and one was rather scrawny in comparison to the Gods. They all were featured in all manner of attire, with a few appearing always with shirts on. The stars among the two dozens of men on stage couldn't be identified by any personal number that the rest were wearing.
Because the drink money is collected outside the door, there were fewer opportunities for the wait staff to collect tips, unless customers buy a second or subsequent drinks.

one can  always slip say , 20 baht into hand of waiter actually bringing the drink.

 

we neatly moved from Senso troubles to Moonlight shine so I wonder if  Sala Daeng is cleared of debris and things are back to normal or world needs to wait till Monday.
