Re: One tourist killed, 11 injured in speed boat explosion

No-one said it so far so I will.

Condolences for the needless deaths, and hoping that the remaining tourists recover.

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

I am told by my other half that it has a Chinese name, not Thai and Wenshidi is there or thereabouts as my other half came up with 'Jek Bier' but that second word is long with a rising tonal accent. That seems about right. The name is given on Google Maps with Chinese and English characters as: 正盛 ...

Re: New Ford Mustang

And there's a road good enough in Thailand for pedal to the metal and hit the speedo endstop?

Would be a bit quick to diagnose Alzheimers I guess. Anyway he's been located and is safe which is all.

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

I don't have a problem, you just seemed grouchy. Virgins and stormtroopers, you could probably sell tickets for a tour of your mind. Have a good weekend. :D Grouchy? I prefer to think of it as humor in the vein of George Carlin's 3rd career phase. He was like a harmless uncle who talked about his f...

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

.... I correctly identified the restaurant on the corner of Naebkehart Road and Night Market street, which is always packed to the gills. This was what the OP asked for. My work, here is done. Have a bee in your bonnet this evening Homer? :P What's your problem? I agreed that you correctly identifi...

I make a point of taking no notice of them at all and obey the lights.
Everywhere if a person is guiding pedestrians you have to obey him and not the lights. Here we have the robotic man of this forum.
So if I put on a high-vis jacket and tell you to cross you'll do it?

Don't tempt me....

Re: Missing in Hua Hin

As I live alone, I have a buddy system with another older ex-pat loner. We phone each other at about 9 every morning, if no reply we investigate. One or two false alarms, uncharged phons is the main culprit, but ita worth the trouble. That's good. Loneliness and financial worries are often killers....

Re: Foundation voids

It appears that the issue is not as serious as I had first expected. Basically since the house is relatively new, much of the garden and earth around the house has compacted, which has revealed some gaps between the garden and foundations. We have been advised to simply re-do the garden by applying...

English AM music radio stations in Thailand?

I listen to Surf FM in the car, as it's the only choice in Hua Hin. If there are English AM stations with good signal (clear-channel) in say BKK then you could get them here in HH, does anyone know of any? Yes I could hook up my phone to an internet app and pump it through the car audio, but I don't...

Re: Hua Hin's most dangerous pedestrian crossing

I worry equally about the guys guiding pedestrians across the road at those points, even asking the traffic to stop. If someone dies because they make a bad call, where is the liability? They're not government appointed I guess? Yes TIT so asking about legal liability is often like 'making water int...
