Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

LOL, wear your wellies.

Actually, I was down that way, and it's so sad to see the drying out operation taking place in so many homes and businesses.

Re: Crazy Motorcyclists

I accept that we have many members who condone this type of behaviour, as normal but I will never understand. It happened again today as I nipped down to Khao Takiab to pick up some stuff for our dogs. Everything was fine, and the road was usually quite quiet. Mrs BB distracted me for a second point...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

As I said in my second video, we saw a few like that out near the new Immigration at about 2:50pm yesterday. Unfortunately, I had inserted my SD card incorrectly yesterday, so the moment was lost.

Here's a photo of a bar in Takiab that I captured from social media for a friend yesterday:

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

there seem to be more than a few question marks (poor job of reading numberplates After reading your comment, it got me wondering, and I looked back at the first of the dashcam videos I posted yesterday. Yes, about 50% of the numberplates are unclear. I then started reading signs all around, and ha...

Road Down to Chinese Temple @ Takiab

I've just been watching Thai News, and they've been showing the hole where the road to the Chinese Temples used to be on Monkey Mountain. Damage caused after yesterday's storm.

I've searched social media and have found this photo of the hole.

Re: Arrest warrants sought for match-fixing in Thai football

Doesn't surprise me one little bit. Thais aren't stupid, and there's no way so many referees could be so incompetent.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

A bit more Hua Hin flooding. Unfortunately, I hadn't inserted my SD Card correctly on the outbound journey. This video is about 2 hours later after workmen had been tackling the problem.

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

Most of the phone shops sell them - they're the ones I use, and are a third of the cost of the ones mentioned above.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Yes, there was one poor lady stood on Soi 94 with a sweeping brush trying to divert the water from going into her home. Unfortunately, she was ankle deep, and she was having absolutely no effect.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

It's not just 102 guys, I've just told my daughter to leave her motorcycle here, and I've dropped her home. Soi 94 is like a raging river, Soi 96 has shoes that people have left outside of their houses floating everywhere and Petchkasem is a lake - be very careful out there, especially if on a motor...

Here's the parade - I think they'd lost the will to live by this stage: https://youtu.be/H7bNxdx0S-E Here's the rain that preceded the parade. We only got soaked thanks to a leaky Burger King umbrella. The really bad thunder had passed by this time, and it was brightening up. Others drowned: https:/...
