Re: Cheap prefix code for calling the uk

I'm on AIS One 2 Call Pay As You Go and call England using the country code +00344. Call quality is good and it costs B5.5 per min.

(Don't know if you have to have a One 2 Call SIM to get this rate).

Re: Another cowardly farang bashing in Hua Hin

This thread is reading like an extension of the previous post re: the well publicised and televised incident in Binta... I have the same feeling about both incidents i.e. it is assumed that they were unprovoked and random i.e there was no history involved. In the incident which is the subject of thi...

Re: BBC journalist faces five years in jail for reporting Thai fraud

Are you referring to the same "free press" that had to report on the Gulf War from within Saudi Arabia?

Tha Yang Immigration - further address info required

I extended my Retirement Visa last Friday. During the course of the "experience" (just watching the action is always entertaining!) I was asked for my address in Thailand - despite it appearing twice on the Application Form (TM7). I produced my yellow Tabian Baan Foreigner's House Book which gives t...

Re: Why do many expats not bother to learn to read?

Quoted by Mrs Chazz on too many occasions:

"When you speak Thai I no understand - when you speak English it's OK."

It's lucky I've got the patience of a Saint - not!!

Re: Computer laws would give government control of internet

Surely every Government has a Department monitoring internet and email traffic? That's exactly what GCHQ in the UK and the Pentagon in the USA do... British and American politicians would just say they're doing it as part of the ongoing "fight against terrorism" which they feel effectively allows th...

Re: Why do you drink Chang beer?

I always describe the taste of Thai beer (especially Chang) to my English friends as "industrial." Having said that, after living here for 3 years I got used to it. After returning from England recently after 2 weeks of drinking local draught real ale, I've lost my some of my enthusiasm for Thai bee...

Re: Why do some farang not wear motorcycle helmets?

I agree with DB re: the helmets, but I've noticed that the Thais riding expensive-looking racing bikes (and wearing all the flash
clothing) on the P/kasem at dusk quite often don't have any lights.

Maybe that's why they're wearing helmets... ?!

Re: Hua Hin dual-track rail routes go to cabinet

A quick clarification - Nong Karng village has avoided Google's search engine to date... Nong Karng is situated 15kms north of Hua Hin and lies between Huai Sai Tai and Hua Sai Nua villages. We are between the P/kasem and the railway line. We have our own 7-Eleven on the P/kasem and our entrance soi...
