Re: Routine Eye Sight tests in Thailand

I have one complaint about Dr. Parirat. I've used reading glasses for computers since my early 40s. Last time I saw Parirat, I told him I wanted a prescription for both normal and reading glasses. He said what distance do you read at? Showed him between this (laptop hinge at knees) and this (arm ext...

Re: Airport VIP Bus to and from Hua Hin

On average I do 4 round trips a year to Bangkok using the airport bus. Always buy my tickets in advance. About 75% of the time the bus from the airport for which I have a ticket is full. Most of the other times it's almost full, which means sitting in the back near the Source Of Human Generated Sten...

Re: News of the Weird - this just in!

Saw this in a movie once. Ended just as badly as in the movie. Two guys rob a pub without considering who was in the pub. Mug shots shows one of the robbers was more surprised than the other, though I can't tell which was which: http://www.wbaltv.com/article/armed-suspects-rob-pub-full-of-police-off...

Re: Jalapeños at Villa Market!

No. Fesh. I don't eat pickled Jalepenos. Very few restaurants where I've lived used fresh jalepenos, and then only a slice as a garnish. Several reasons why. It's far faster to open a can then to remove the seeds and ribs from a jalepeno. Cutting hot peppers puts you at risk for a squirt of capsaic...

Re: Jalapeños at Villa Market!

And I wouldn't worry too much; as I said I bought mine there about 6 months ago so I'm guessing they've been there the whole time (though I suppose it's possible then and now are the only two times they've been available and there was a lack of supply in between). i ran out of jalepenos months ago....

Now that was two and a half months ago.
Imagine how useful that would have been if included in your post saying tourist visas could not be extended at Bluport.

Jalapeños at Villa Market!

Hey Yanks, get 'em while they're hot. Can't remember the last time I saw them on the shelf. Four oz (113g) cans of nacho sliced from Casa Fiesta at 84b. They also have 2 other types of peppers from Casa Fiesta. Forgot to get the GPS coordinates. Aisle 4, to the right of the vinegars and above the Vl...

Re: Aspirin availability

81mg x 4 = 324mg. If that's not close enough, a pill splitter makes it 364mg.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

Thanks smiles! could you reconfirm that I cannot extend my Tourist visa there for 30 days? Based on the online news regarding opening of the Imm, I potentially can. You cannot not at this time you have to go to the main immigration office on Hua Hin 35 I was there on Tuesday. FWIW, sign on the outs...
