    to be fair to the guy - he just sat in the background and didn't get involved or even interact with Ead ....

    at least he made up the numbers otherwise it would have been a fairly poor turn out.

    TBH for most of us MTB died when Nicke did...its a terrible tragedy what befell our friend and I am sure like me it makes you all sad at times.....but maybe its time we all just moved on...stop judging Ead, her new BF, why the bar degenerated before it closed, PI Forum etc etc...one of the main reasons I didn't go back for the party is I"ve moved on now...i'was at the funeral, we had a good wake at Bill's and at the MTB and I have returned to normal life...when I returned to HKT over songkran I tried going in on a few occasions but it just made me sad..its done and dusted now guys..end of an era...all things must pass

    That's a very fair comment - he only opened a bottle of Champagne because Ead insisted. Although Nicke was fundamental in setting up the forum - the bar was a partnership - how many people actually went to the bar after Ead had left along with the girls? Nicke was afforded due respect at the party his seat was occupied with his favourite drinks, a photo and some food.

    Last night was a celebration of 13 (?) years of good memories, friends getting together again for a last time at the watering hole, what I wish I could show were some of the photos Ead decorated the bar with like Nicke kissing Ead's bump when she was heavily pregnant with Natalie and the like. I am sure the guy was not there to brag or show off but to support Ead, and she needed it; whatever she has done, the bar was going to close last night, and Ead has been involved in its success throughout the golden years.

    Let's try and remember those golden years - they have passed. I have very fond memories of the earlier years of MTB, and I will cherish those. I have met some great people at that bar, friendships made stronger by the forum to be sure, but it was the bar that was the catalyst for it all.

    Whatever my feelings for Mike/Mick whatever his name is, it would be just as fair to criticise a former member of staff who was sacked for stealing money for turning up as well!

    I made a post a few days back but decided to delete it

    I was feeling a bit aggrieved by the stuff I saw on FB. In my mind was pretty heartless but maybe the love was gone a long time ago and being able to move on easier than we imagined

    generalisation but TGs seem to be able to put stuff behind them and look forward alot easier than us from the west

    I think you are right. A lot of them seem to live only in the present.

    Thanks to K2 for tidying this thread up..

    I think generally everyone is too quick to judge on Ead.. Whats the woman to do ?? A TG without much options IMO doing what TG's do to cope..

    As to the new guy ?? Well I dont think going to the closing party with his partner is poor form, if he kept himeself to himself and was respectful I think its probably the best of many not so great choices he could make.

    Good luck to the pair of them.. I am sure our friend Nicke wouldnt begrudge her a chance of some kind of life.

    ......some kind of life and potential financial security for her and her children???

    There is never a right time after your spouse dies, 1 day maybe too quick, 10 years may be too long, so anytime in between and it feels right for the individual, is the right time in my opinion.

    just differing of opinions
    i wouldn't go near the place out of respect and I'd tell my gf to cool it with the FB photos
    and to me, that's on him to realize and not Ead

    Agree, but the Thais don't grieve like we do in the west. I was one of the guys that was most upset about what was going on. On the other side relationships brake up every day. If everyone knew that they broke up 6 months before Nickes death, we wouldn't judge her that hard for her new relationships (at least not the last one).
    Anyway, wish them both the best......As far as I know Michael work Sweden, which might be a small step in the right direction to get the kids in touch with their grandparents again.

    i am not judging Ead for her relationship, i don't think it is inappropriate
    i am saying that i think he should have sat that party out. he wasn't part of all the years at MTB, it was Nicke's bar, it wouldn't have killed the guy to not be there
    and i think it was classless that he went

    For me i saw it as a last night in the bar,and that is about our friend,not hes other part

    It seems some here thinks its wrong to have that kind that kind of respect ?

    For me its al about respect for a friend who have tragicly passed away ,and hes bar that for many was a meeting point,and did make many of us as friends for life

    Not about the other part who for many of us was not written into this history and never wil be,its up to here what she do and not do,but i as a friend to Nicke have a opinion about it !

    Nobody is a social drinker. Everybody drinks to get drunk. I mean, nobody drinks 10 pints of coke in a night
