Re: What To Do In Case Of A Road Traffic Accident

OK. I am lying on the ground injured after being knocked off my motorbike. My phone is still working. I prefer to go to Hua Hin hospital. 1. Which ambulance do I call? Number? 2. Which recovery service? Number? 3. Do I also call the Police? Number? Might pay to have a card in your wallet, perhaps wr...

Re: Children selling roses...

The number of youngsters selling flowers down the Bintabaht area has definitely increased over the last year.

What To Do In Case Of A Road Traffic Accident

I see so many accidents it seems only a matter of time before I am involved in one. A 'sticky' post explaining to forum members what to do if they are either the victim, or the cause, of an accident in Thailand, would be helpful. Any tips on who to call, what steps to take and what rescue services t...

Re: Is Living Here Difficult for You?

I think except for very few, everyone gets bored of the places they live for a long time. We're creatures of change! :D Agreed, apart from those in my home village, who have never been to London. I don't think many people enjoy the jobs they do. No matter where they live. I can't imagine being a Ci...

Re: Global Warming 2

With another Climate Summit approaching it was to be expected that the manufacturers of consent would attempt to breath a little life into the festering corpse known as global warming. Already one of the longest running Hollywood productions, the Armaggedonites have roped in actor Leonardo Di Caprio...

Re: Women In Bikinis Aren't Safe - Unless They Are Ugly

This is what fascinates me about the Thai. Any politician in the UK would be absolutely slammed for making such a suggestion, but it seems OK in other parts of the world! Thais don't have an issue with telling someone they are fat, to their face. It surprised me when I first came here. 'Where is th...

I think it is 18k per month and they should rename it from 'Market Town' to 'Ghost Town'. Get ready to work for the benefit of the landlord.

Re: Rest In Peace Joan Rivers

They say you should not speak ill of the dead but in this case I am happy to make an exception. A mutilated harpie who's crude and malicious trashing of others, were neither funny nor endearing. E! TV, like the appalling Kardashians, is shallow garbage targeted at the bottom end. In fact, like some ...

Re: Best steak in hua hin Right now

A little heavy-handed with the plugging accusations there, kendo. Agreed. I didn't understand this. It was Jools, not Richard who first suggested BB's and Richard simply agreed. How can one reference be 'plugging'? You would need to do it repeatedly. These comments are provocative and come across a...
