Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

A very good point about the humidity hhfarang. I have always sweated more during times of higher humidity, although I always found that was a daytime problem. It never really affected me after dark. Also interesting about the temperature the aircon drops it to. In our living room, the remote has a ...

Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

Yes Big Boy as you mentioned in your opening post, the heat (actually I've found it to be the humidity, more about that later) was the main factor that drove me to give up on living in Thailand. Like Dtaai-Maai I seemed to get less and less tolerant of the climate the longer I stayed there. I think ...

Re: Vasectomy anyone?

I had a vasectomy when I was 27 in the U.S.. I was single, had no kids, and knew I didn't want any. The doc just made me go away and think about it for a couple of days to make sure that's what I wanted. Upon reflection, I wish I had just gotten castrated instead at the time. It would have saved me ...

Re: Recommend me a seafood restaurant for Saturday lunch

Can someone recommend me a good steak restaurant in Hua Hin for Saturday dinner. Thank you in advance.
Papa John's in Takiab. A bit on the expensive side but the best steak I had in the area.
