Re: 2018 Rolls-Royce

My uncle had a Silver Cloud in the late 60s. He sometimes used to stop at the bus stop I was waiting for a bus at and I'd hop in (my side of the family were pretty poor). Made me feel top of the world for a few minutes. :D He and my dad drove it down through Europe and across North Africa on a month...

Re: Cocktail bars

I'll just say that people who feel that wanting to take one's other half to somewhere classy for cocktails once in a while is pretentious are themselves more pretentious than anyone. Inverted snobbery makes me cringe even more than snobbery, which I find I can just laugh at.

Go, sip, enjoy!

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

Yes, I've been PR in Thailand since 1988. I started using radar detectors back in 1993, they do have radar and laser traps around, and I used to drive extensively so found it was a necessity then. I don't drive as much now, so it's more a habit than anything. It's to save the hassle of being pulled...

Keep it in your pocket in a snuff tin, or similar? (I wish you could buy snuff in HH, I didn't have any for a loooong time). :)

Re: The best pharmacy in Hua Hin?

In Market Village, Boots always has a pharmacist that seems know her stuff. But Fascino is currently the cheapest on most items in MV I think.

Re: Which Mobile Phone?

It depends what you want the phone to do, other than send and receive calls. Are photos important to you, endless apps, speed, etc. Pick a price range and read reviews by pros and users. par ex: Google, Best smart phones under $. That's obvious, I was just responding to the unusual nature of the ph...

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

I think there are a couple of factors that haven't been taken into account, one is that before about 1990, poverty rates in rural areas of Thailand were very high and the other is that people living in poor rural communities in SE Asia have a very high rate of intestinal parasites. Both of these fa...

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

It would be interesting to compare a standard meal now to the past. The bulk of the meals I see that are priced low is generally rice. Look at people (women especially) in Mexico and central America, many are heavy set. Standard meals, especially for the lower classes, have lots of beans, rice, pla...

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

Thanks, this morning I got off the pot and ordered the DDPai M6 Plus from Amazon... Amazing how some actions tend to clear your mind and goad you into action.. :lach: Good buy, good price. Enjoy when it comes. Don't forget a separate battery pack so you will be able to use the time-lapse recording....

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

404CJ, if you're looking for a front-only dash cam, PeopleFu also have a similarly spec'd one for less than what I paid for the front/back combo. The girl in the shop said, yes, they're made in China (I mean, who doesn't these days?) but they are to this company's specs, and this dashcam is only so...

cameljockey, if your dashcam is majorly different in terms of video quality, I'd be grateful if you could post a sample clip please.
As I said, I don't have one yet. But it will be delivered on 1st December!

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

I think the dashcam is not window mounted at it shakes quite a bit, but clarity and contrast are better than the GoPro. It's difficult to get a full idea of clarity from uploaded clips, even in HD.

Obvs you're right BB, if it's not broken, don't fix it. You're happy and that's fine. :)

I will do a Go Pro/Dashcam comparison, and post the results here. I will use the short Market Village to Soi 88 stretch - there are always cars on that stretch.
That will be interesting. Not sure if you venture out at night also, different cams can have totally different results day or night. :)
