A great system for farmers and for the environment but questionable advantages for the consumer. It's not for me but that's my personal opinion.
Yes, I agree. I have given it a try in the past but was not very impressed at all.

Re: What's Happened To The Water in Hua Hin?

Is this water stoppage a recent event or is it still due to the broken pipe/pump event in 2006? I'm just a bit curious because we've been waiting 11 years for the repairs to be completed, and hey, here comes 2018 and we have street parties when we get water from the mains supply. Unfortunately we on...

Re: Chatchai Market

Till what time is the market open and is it worth going there? No dog(meat) I hope?! :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: No, they don't sell dog meat there. I have heard that some folk in Thailand eat dog meat, but to be honest, in the 20 years I've been here, I've never personally witnessed it, and I can't re...

Re: Steamboat

MK Restaurants in Market Village, Bluport, etc., but it's not really a full-on steamboat/huoguo in my opinion. No spicy pot available and the menu items are quite sanitised (no lamb brain, chicken stomach , etc.). If you find a real chinese huoguo PLEASE post it on the forum or message me! Yes plea...

Re: [ADVERTORIAL] The Wado Karate Federation

Thanks for another wonderful year John, and I am sure all your students feel the same way. Last Friday was a great ending to this year's classes, with all the kids passing their assessments and grading.

See you all again in the new year. :cheers:

Re: Ranong, staying in Kawthoung/Victoria Point (Burma)

I spent a night on the other side about 4 years ago with a mate of mine. Only two hotels to choose from and from what I recall, both depend on generators for electricity. In the hotel where we stayed, power came on at around 17h00 and it went off at around midnight due to mechanical problem, or so w...

Re: Charging for plastic bags in Thailand?

In my opinion, Thais are excellent at recycling and reusing. Not much goes to waste here if you think about it. Anything which can be salvaged or reused is soon claimed, but the problem lies in the rubbish which cannot be reused, such as plastic bags, and the fact that most Thais don't see litter in...

Re: Snakes in the house and garden

Not in the garden, although the snake must have been milked beforehand giving a dry bite, as the guy got a bite on his neck and leg though the video is well worth watching :) (Mod Edit: Video will not copy. See original above) I think you will find that the snake has had its poison glands removed. ...

Re: Thais rank low again at English

Most members of this forum live in Thailand, many are also married to a Thai woman. Who speaks Thai? Yes it’s very easy to criticise Thais in general, with their ability to speak English (or lack thereof), but I’m certain that it’s still a lot better than the % of English speakers who can speak Tha...

Re: House for rent in Nakhon Pathom

Well, VS, this comes as a surprise. I have always been under the impression that you and Mr. VS were to be anchored in LOS for life.

Anyway, I'm sure you both have good reason for leaving, and I wish you both all of the best.
