Re: Understanding Thai society and behaviour

Opened for me no problem and quite an interesting read. However when I came to the 8 point list I jokingly asked my wife if she could claim 2 of them to be true and the response was " Yes I can; If I want to"

Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

"But cigarette butts, that's sh*tty people from all over the world leaving their tiny 'awww, no-one will notice/care' garbage everywhere. Don't fine them, don't jail them - hang them!" Hang them? What about some boiling lead in the veins before drawing and quartering :twisted: Death penalty a bit st...

Re: Camera for sale

Yes Homer it is an S200 EXR and nowhere near that old. Anyone interested is welcome to take it for a couple of days to see if it suits their needs.

Re: Camera for sale

Hi Specs are below. I purchased it maybe 3 years ago. The original owner had bought it on a whim and not even filled the internal memory so it was as good as new. Reason for sale is simply that I have another and purchased this one for my former business partner to use for work which he never did( Y...

Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

Well I think a fine for putting any rubbish anywhere where it should not be is fair enough; There are plenty of public bins around and you get paid for recyclables . I am a smoker and if in an open air restaurant walk away or make sure the fan is positioned to prevent smoke blowing towards other peo...

Re: Roast Beef

I have had very good brisket for corned beef and large rib roasts from the French butcher. What I have never had in Hua Hin is a good roast dinner; There again I have not tried everywhere as we tend to cook ourselves. Normally overcooked veg, soggy roast potatoes, instant gravy and Yorkshire pudding...

Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

This thread started off with a lady not being contacted after an interview for a job which she eventually got and wandered on to Home Pro?????? Over the 20 years I have been here I have witnessed many examples of contempt and general dismissiveness of Thai people by foreigners; Lack of respect mainl...

Re: Office Kraiwit

I have worked in real estate for many years and had dealings with just about every firm in town. Many are just notaries with no lawyers on staff and a few that have no qualification and just pass the work on with a large mark up. There are some good ones that do not drag out deals in cahoots with th...

Re: TV options in HuaHin

I use Minix boxes which I buy here for the rental properties I market. You can order them cheaper on line but you get no support for updates etc. Over a year now and not had a problem with any of them. One time payment and no monthly bills :D

Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

It is not a foreigner/Thai thing; That is worth a separate thread regarding how foreigners think of Thai people and the contempt that many show openly.

Very rude not to let people know they have not been successful and give feedback as to why.

Re: Possible leak from incoming water

If the pump is off and the leaking has stopped then guess which side of the circuit the leak is :roll: I take it by "leak" you mean the holding tank is dropping. If you shut off the holding tank and check your water meter is not spinning then you do not have a leak that side. If the pump does not ki...

Re: Buy a good Chair for computer

The back is fixed on mine but springy enough. My friend, who has back and hip problems is 130 kg and I cannot get him out of it when he comes over unless I put his beer out of reach then I can nip back in.

Re: Buy a good Chair for computer

I picked a new one up in Home Pro of all places after trying a few others. I told the guy in the chair section at the back left what I wanted it for ( Long hours at computer) and he pulled out a few for me to try. The one I settled on has adjustable height and a springy back. I am 5' 11" and thigh s...
