Re: Where can I buy a sewing machine?

I think most of the Singer shop machines are 2nd hand (reconditioned) machines. When we went in there, the guy running the place was very helpful (in a useful way - not like the brain dead staff in Home Pro).

My granddaughter received motorcycle training at school, and she rides very well. However, she won't wear a helmet :banghead: nor does she have time to get a licence :? .

Re: Arrival to carousel time at BKK airport?

Re: Phanaeng curry

Depends on the chef, I've had it where it was sweet and milky. Also had it quite oily and spicy.
