Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

My daughter is the HR manager for a large company. She's said in the past that applications/cv's are commonly ignored unless an interview is imminent. However, following an interview, she's never heard of the outcome being ignored. The result will almost always be communicated by e-mail or phone cal...

Re: Back in the UK after 14 years

I'll just re-iterate the experience of my daughter (half Thai) and my son. Both have been in the UK for a year now. My son was here for 12 years (came when he was 21) and my daughter born in the UK and came to Thailand when she was five (19 now). Now these two are of the younger generation and both ...

Re: Possible leak from incoming water

In Bangkok it may of been the case 20 years ago or so, but not now. It is very much the case now. To quote one example, my wife's family live in Nongkaam. Their house was about 3 quarters down the water pipe. (tends to be a single pipe down each side of each soi). The further down the line, the pre...

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

Not even that. A census is a snapshot. Records who is where at a given point. Census Is a Snapshot • What: The census is a count of everyone residing in Thailand. • Who: Every Thai resident must be counted – both citizens and non citizens. The census coverage would include: ¾ Every Thai citizen who ...

Re: Thai ex-PM fails to show for verdict

And what can they charge these guys with. Not aiding and abetting a fugitive as she has not been convicted of anything. Interesting to see how this pans out.
Anyway, she's gone and won't be back.

Re: Possible leak from incoming water

Sorry mate, but it is both illegal and very bad practice to have a pump with the suction connected directly to the mains supply. The supply should ALWAYS be via some form of settling tank. You're probably right but I can show you many instances where the pump is suctioned directly to the main suppl...

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I think the only believable source is the National Statistics Office who is responsible for the 10 yearly census. They produce a full demographic of each region but that is just a snapshot in time.

Re: Possible leak from incoming water

A good indication of a leak is if the pump switches on momentarily every so often when nothing is being used. Unless the pump is faulty, it will maintain the pressure leak or not. (which is why it keeps switching on when there's a leak).

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

Interesting. My wife had to show her tabien bahn when she registered at HH hospital. She registered the kids at the same time. Maybe things have changed.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

The Wiki link below lists all cities, towns and townships. It also includes population of each and gives a population of 41,000 for the town of Hua Hin.
The references/sources are in Thai so maybe someone else can help with that.

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

I believe that to get the 30 baht medicare system, you can only use the hospital where you are registered. My daughters were originally on a tabien baan in BKK and when we moved to HH they had to be on the tabien bahn here in order to use the 30 baht scheme.

Just noticed that the figure given in Wiki does state the source:

Re: Population of Hua Hin or anywhere for that matter.

You're absolutely correct of course. I had a friend years ago who created an entry on Wiki for himself. Listed himself as the world's greatest P*** Artist until the Wiki police removed it.
