Instant Messaging

LINE details below. We really like it and our service of choice, as well as my kids in the US. I don't use Messenger that much as part of my small protest concerning FB. :D Messenger also pushes update downloads at you about every week. I think needless and simply a way for them to calculate quantit...

Re: History Challenge

Are we doing "what was", or "what is"? If ruins and remnants they are all over the place. I thought you were trying to pinpoint intact existing castle structures today.

Re: History Challenge

I would say the closest is Okinawa and Japan. I can think of nothing left in Hue, Vietnam. Angkor is more of a temple ruins site now with any fortifications long gone. Hong Kong has some WWII Japanese bunker ruins but they were hardly castles. The Forbidden City in Beijing may qualify as well.

Re: What's Happened To The Water in Hua Hin?

I've found that many places now large and small (even my little town) has a municipal FB page where they put up all the plan announcements about water and electric outages, road repairs etc. I would think the HH Gov has one too. All in Thai of course but a useful bookmark. Pete :cheers:

Sorry to digress from this very important debate, but does anyone know for sure whether immigration will be open this Monday? It's Constitution day or something.
It's a national holiday. All Gov offices closed as well as banks and schools. Pete :cheers:

Re: Kasikorn Debit Card

I still need to check it out yet, but I withdrew some money on Mrs BB's card today, and a notice popped up on the screen saying that her ATM card fee for 2018 will be automatically taken in January - 650 Baht. That sounds rather expensive, and they can have it back. We (the wife) uses K Bank as wel...

Re: Monthly Team-Activities for Childrens and Teenagers

They learn as a group in team formation, but it's an individual pursuit. Worthwhile and proven based upon feedback from forum members who have enrolled their kids. Pete :cheers:
