My expenses Jan 2017

My expenses Jan 2017 

Total 39,712 THB (1060 EUR or 1150 USD at time of posting). Quite a lot, but that includes one trip to Pattaya (1600 hotel two nights + 1215 drinks/tips/off-fee in gogo bars + 2000 two short times = 4815) and 6d5n trip in Esan (where I pay only for my hotel and food, but not for petrol for FF’s car). Not in the list stolen Bluetooth headphones 1600 and stolen T-shirt 100 estimated. Over the years, average 300 stolen per month, usually money, this is the first not-money theft.

After excesses of January (6d5n trip to Esan and 3d2n trip to Pattaya), I had to take a rest in February before going to Germany on 17feb2017. 32,988 Baht by multiplying numbers for 1-15Feb below by two (to get estimate for 30 days, disregarding that Feb has only 28 days):

4000 rent
2795 food
2340 boys 300 100 300 500 100 100 40 300 500 100
1260 sauna 160 120 180 120 160 180 170 170
1050 boat 999 17 17 17 (999 is ferry Pattaya to Hua Hin)
719 fruit
650 taxi
455 electricity (7/kWh)
412 train
245 sweets
213 MRT (no BTS in Feb)
199 memory card for camera
157 bus in Bangkok
130 medicine (finally down from 2000 medical expenses Nov and Jan which was unusually high)
100 drinks (where I could have taken a bottle of water from home)
100 museum
75 swimming
60 haircut (I get hair cut for 60 THB about once per month, but there was no haircut in Jan)
31 toothpaste
25 van
20 mocy
18 water (18/m3)
17 songtheo
15 internet

Average for Nov2016, Jan2017, Feb2017 is 35,194 THB per month. No expense report for Dec 2016 (I did a visa run to Taipei, which messes things up). In a month where I have no health problems, no extension of stay and no trip to Pattaya, it should be possible to live on less than 1000 per day. All these calculations do not include money needed for visa runs (one visa run in SEA of average 5d4n costs me around 15,000, and a return trip to Germany 22,000).
