Thumbs down Lounge roach!

Euwh! Last week we saw a cockroach cruising on the sandwiches in the large TG lounge in BKK. I know this is a tropical country but come on!!!

It does not matter, because most TG flyers have been "smile'd" away from the lounge.

Only one roach? That doesn't seem possible.

Those roaches are new menu items, roasted crispy roaches!! I was served some on my last visit to the lounge and I calmly declined.

Doesn't surprise me. Ever go to Paragon? That's the last place I would want to eat. I've seen rats in the food hall during the mooncake festival. The worst was finding a piece of a roach leg on a slice of lemon in my iced tea at particular chain of restaurants that ends with the letters HOUND.

If you go to AMS, SEA, or DEN you'll find roaches, too.
