Re: Is pla-ra safe to eat?

And the award for the most tactful yet accurate comeback of the week goes to............. So I think your claims of big corporations' involvement fall a little short of the mark here. :thumb: Hear, hear! People who don't believe anything still end up dying from something, just usually sooner.... :)

Re: Is pla-ra safe to eat?

For centuries millions of people from Japan to Iceland have been fermenting fish in same fermentation process. “Where do you get it in Hua Hin” No idea that’s the better half’s department. If people listened to all the hype about this food or that food we would all starve :) I agree about the hype ...

That's a Thai trait. Many staircases have at least one of irregular height.
Also they have the habit of making the steps slope downwards at the front edge, I guess to help heavy rain disperse, but it's a horrible feeling walking down them.

Re: Is pla-ra safe to eat?

"Pla ra is a traditional Thai seasoning produced by fermenting fish with rice bran or roasted rice powder and salt fermented in a closed container for at least six months. Pla ra is mostly used in northeastern food such as green papaya salad" If it is fermented in salt and sealed jar for six months...

Re: electric gate opener battery

Yes sounds ballpark. I paid 20k for a new unit last year with two handheld remotes. No idea of the supplier though, bought by a builder.

Re: DHL office Hua Hin

I've used the one in Bluport a couple times. Great service. They are of course good but I miss a cheap consolidating courier service as I had in other countries like Skynet. The DHL lady in Bluport is still the same as was in the little kiosk at Khao Takiap. Very nice lady and knows what she'd doing.

Re: The scourge of Facebook

"If something is free, "you" are the product." Headline of the year. I agree, not headline news at all. Pithy quote, but as I've said before on this thread, this is not even news despite all the shouting. I don't see anything wrong at all with the Facebook model. It ain't original or even new. :D M...

Money walks in one door (prize money, or having sponsors to please), sportsmanship walks out of the other. Golf, cricket, don''t even talk about football.

Re: electric gate opener battery

He must be the guy that has the stall selling car keys, opposite the guy with all the printers? I could use a second handheld/remote. Do they all work the same way? I mean are there switches inside that have to be set to the same pattern as in the receiver, like in a remote for a ceiling fan? Or wo...

Re: electric gate opener battery

If you are in Market Village on the top floor near the exit to the car park, there is a guy selling the handhelds and he also has the replacement batteries. I also saw them a Boots in the battery section.... Cheers, B. He must be the guy that has the stall selling car keys, opposite the guy with al...

Re: Is pla-ra safe to eat?

Anyway not worst and as safe as rotten fish which is a Swedish speciality. If no Swedish died due to this, you can eat pla-ra and will survive. Wrong actually. We are talking about liver flukes here. Lutefisk and surstromming are made from saltwater fish. So no flukes. Norwegian ratfisk is usually ...

Re: Is pla-ra safe to eat?

Nam Prik is nothing like Pla Ra, and neither in Nam Pla. But nam phrik made from pla-ra would be a problem? Because only cooking not fermentation kills the flukes. And, for all you sushi lovers, you are also taking a risk. Sushi has seen a huge increase in popularity, and it has been accompanied by...

Re: Is pla-ra safe to eat?

It is not just with anchovies - gourami is a hot favourite, and they do have other varieties of freshwater fish being used.\ Anchovy is salt water, gourami is fresh! Umm! Also, the 'sterile' and 'non-sterile' versions, where the non-sterile has small little white worms crawling all over and conside...

Your glass would seem to be half empty, I prefer mine to be half full - and it has been good to think like that in my experience . And I'd say say 'eyes wide open rather than eyes half shut'.
