lower parts are being warned to brace for torrential rain, strong winds and rough seas.
As I drove down Soi 94 this morning, I was mesmerised by the heavy sea I could see at the end of Soi 75.

Re: Smart House Valley

After a couple of weeks ago, I'd check the flooding. It only happens once, maybe twice a year, but that's one or 2 times too many. I had to drive that way, and was shocked at the amount of water flowing off the developments along that road. I don't know if Smart Valley was affected as it's set back ...

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

For the last week, I've been trying to order something for my son's business online. A common problem - even though the website is in English or Thai, any order in English is ignored. The order was worth 17,000 Baht (19,000 Baht according to their website :? ), so not to be sniffed at. This morning...

Re: IKTS 2017/2018

My banker is on Chelski this week - quite hard to find what looked like a safe bet.

Doesn't give me re-assurance when baby BB is cheering Saints. I'll stick to watching the Green Army hopefully claw their way out of the relegation zone, but will also have one eye Chelski.

And that's what they said couldn't be done.
Who said?
The girl behind the desk at the bank. I learnt very quickly that resistance is futile. I manage without the facility.

Incidentally, the money for the cancelled order has been returned to me today, in the form of a credit note.

Making consumers pay for shopping bags is not going to stop any of the other uses of plastic containers.
Quite the opposite I'd imagine. They'll think they've bought the right to dump it anywhere.

Re: 15th Hua Hin Vintage Car Parade

I've never seen a parade as such. They tend to go out to various attractions around the town and park up for a while. I saw these at Bluport this morning:
