Re: Study finds high pesticide levels in local food

Scaremongering reports are required to finance expensive studies. This is pretty serious stuff Big Boy. This research is not a frivolous look into what is your favourite chocolate brand or car colour. We are talking about the expectations of the local people and the safety of their food and ultimat...

Re: Study finds high pesticide levels in local food

Sorry PeteC, Washing fruit and vege does nothing towards removing contaminants absorbed into the produce thru the growing period. At best you may wash away dirt , a practice you should follow anyway when preparing food. Even if there was an instant reversal in the current practices contamination of ...

Re: CR2025 car keyfob batteries

when I was working with Citizen watches they tested out many brands of these batteries. Maxell were the top performers. hardly any of the Chinese ones passed the 3 volt test, let alone the under load tests. Seizaiken came up well and are usually sold off at a lower price point and tend to be more av...

Re: The best pharmacy in Hua Hin?

Many pharmaceutical products require constant storing at or below a certain temperature ( most seem to be 25 deg c) so the pharmacies in the larger malls could be a safer bet than the local corner ones especially if your meds are temp sensitive. One small shop in Cha-Am I have used for basics rarely...

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

Cost cutting in the food game has led to sugar being the main cheap food flavour enhancer ahead of salt even. It "patches up " so many dishes that it has become the norm for Thais. Bring back the onions and the garlic, bring back the coconut cream, and not the plain old dull cheaper coconut milk (he...

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

The Thais must be some of the worst offenders when it comes to unnecessary packaging . Often get a bewildered look from them when I tell them I don't need that plastic bag . Going back a bit, I think it may have started off as some kind of status thing whereby you were obviously better off if you ca...

Re: Understanding Thai society and behaviour

Sad to say I think this study by Khun Suntaree is flawed.
Nowhere could I see any mention of FOOD. Everyone who has spent time with Thais soon realizes that food is the foundation to all of Thai culture.

Re: The Home Air-Conditioner Thread

Nereus Based on this chart a unit around 12,000 btu would be adequate for our living space. Last local installer was quoting 24,000btu for this same room based on floor area calculations only. Hell of a lot of difference eh? Still be keen to hear of how this particular chart stacks up in comparison ...

Re: The Home Air-Conditioner Thread

Been searching for info on correct sizing of air con units for specific situations for ages. When discussing sizes with Thai "experts" always seem to be recommended the biggest (and most costly of course)unit they could push onto me based on the most minimal of my details. So managed to find an info...

Re: Land Fill and Boundary Fence

We had three loads of soil delivered recently, cost us B 1,000 per load guessing that the loads were about 12 cubic metres IF they fully loaded. Make sure you watch them with their load volumes as sure as hell they will try ripping you off. The driver said that prices start at about B 600 per load o...
