Re: The Beer Thread

I'm definitely not a connoisseur of Guinness, in fact I rarely touched the stuff in the UK. Just before leaving the UK I had a stomach operation, and Guinness is the only thing I can drink here without feeling stomach pain after a few sips. So I can't even compare the quality of the stuff I do drink...

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

Guys, can you please stop discussing this event. Notification will be given in the correct thread when it is known what is happening.

Nobody knows yet, and any discussion would be no more than speculation.

Re: UK visa for Thai wife/girlfriend

One thing you have to remember ahandpatsy is there is no guarantee that the agent will be any more successful than you would be doing it yourself. Basically, all the agent will do is tell you what you need, but you will have to do all of the footwork. I have a friend who went through an agent, and i...

Re: Lovely video potrait of Khao Takiab

A few of those clips were not Khao Takiab, and not a monkey to be seen. Mention Khao Takiab to a lot of people, and the first thing they think of is monkeys.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

I'm just back from the football. During the match, wave after wave of very black cloud crossed the stadium, but in true Hua Hin fashion, not a drop of rain fell.

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

So the likes of 7-11 were illegal :?

I actually agree with you by the way, but how many put their prices up on day 1, irrespective of whether or not it was old stock?

I have one complaint about Dr. Parirat. I've used reading glasses for computers since my early 40s. Last time I saw Parirat, I told him I wanted a prescription for both normal and reading glasses. He said what distance do you read at? Showed him between this (laptop hinge at knees) and this (arm ex...

Re: Melbourne woman drowns at Phuket beach after ignoring warning signs

That's what I thought, so the reference to Australians and the flags and colours was a bit of a red herring. Are we saying if they see a red flag only (or pink or orange) they wouldn't understand it? Flags or safety in general here in Thailand are scarce to say the least. Even if flags were standard...
