Re: Hua Hin Bluport Mall news, events and updates

The barrier was on the road just as I approached the Northern side of the shopping mall. I too thought I would carry on to the Southern side. As I said, there were also barriers blocking routes through the car parks as well. It felt like a huge wind up, but of course, it wasn't. I'm sure it's still ...

Re: Hua Hin Bluport Mall news, events and updates

I had cause to make a rare visit to Bluport yesterday evening. I was going from Market Village, so rather than use Petchkasem, loaded with Saturday evening traffic and negotiate 2 u-turns, I opted to go via the back road. Just before Bluport, there was a barrier across the road, directing me to turn...

Re: Caption Competition

Oh cr*p - I did it all yesterday, and posted it. I am assured that my posts go missing because of True :cuss:

:idea: did I edit last week's result instead of quoting it. Give me a few minutes, and I'll get it sorted.

I agree, I've had their 'special' a few times and have enjoyed it.

Re: Thais rank low again at English

Obviously, I don't know how the assessments are made, but they have always achieved outstanding grades. I hate to think of the English skills of those who finish below them.

Re: Thais rank low again at English

I would guess it's the no fail scenario within Thailand. I have 2 very Thai granddaughters (one at university) who have excelled at school, and their English grades are excellent, yet I can barely hold a conversation with the eldest, and the youngest is a non-starter. OK, I'm no better at Thai, so I...

I've PM'd you. Coincidentally, it's about the same person the OP now employs one day a week :D .

Re: Hua Hin to Chumphon

Failing that, call into the bus station at the end of Soi 96 - I'm sure they will be able to help you.

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

I will check it out at the AIS shop and report back. 365 and HDPrime used to be an Asian service (from Malaysia I think).

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

I will. I know back in the good old days of 365 Sport they used Fox Sport a lot, as does HD Prime (unless it's one of the channels they've dropped).

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

Yes, they do, thank you. The pop up for the Fox Sports didn't seem to advertise it - I assumed it would be a major selling point. What the pop up showed didn't do it for me at all. Drilling down further looked encouraging, in fact for me, probably better than True. Prices don't seem too bad either -...
