Re: Indian spices

IMHO, some old threads are worth reopening as things do change.

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

Yes, Chaoshan in Guangdong. But she say's the Thai Chinese are from all over China. That is naturally true. However, Chinese tend to move to areas where there are people from the same areas as they are from. So the Tae Chiew are the biggest group in Bangkok. Teochew and Hokkien[edit] The Teochews ma...

Any idea why it was only Binta, not Poolsuk or others?

Re: Biggest Benefit to Being Expat

I know that used to be the case in the late 80's early 90's but I thought the law had been abolished in 1991 or 1992. You had to pay it if you hade been living more than 180 days in the kingdom within a calendar year. You had to go to the tax office near Sanam Luang to do so. I have never heard of i...

Re: Thailand to England move

The night time sounds of Asia are something I really miss, too. I remember from my nights in Guangzhou in 1987, the night time calls of food vendors and the sounds of a night watchman, hitting the times in the early mornings in Bangkok's Asoke-Din Daeng Road in 1989. That's where the names of 1.00-5...

Re: 2018 Rolls-Royce

It used to be a proud part of British manufacturing but, sadly, no more.
So it's no good any more?

Mold in buildings in Thailand

About two months ago mold was found in the apartment we live in. Today I got keys to a new one and withing next ten days or so, will move. Mold seems to be a big problem in buildings in Finland. How about Thailand? How common is it?

Re: Back in the UK after 14 years

Vital Spark, you could start your own thread, where you describe all the things you must and will do before the move and then how life goes on after your move. Will be interesting to follow. Maybe I should have done that a decade ago, too.

Re: Homes for old age people in Thailand

VS, I agree, there are all kinds of places and not all of them are nice. In the case of my own mother here in Finland, it's been a great place. She couldn't survive on her own any more. Last Christmas, I had to more or less carry her to the bathroom about 5 times a night. Now she's in much better sh...

Re: Homes for old age people in Thailand

Over to you Bamboo Grove? I don't know if these different levels exist in Thailand and neither was that the purpose when I asked the question. My MIL has been staying in a kind of a nursing home in Chayaphoom. They've taken relatively good care of her. My own mother has been in a what Mags calls nu...
