Re: Seen Space, Soi 19

There wasn't one last night It's a very nice place to chill with a couple of beers. I was particularly tired last night and after about an hour or so of chatting with my friends, I was ready to make use of one of the loungers for a nice lie down. While the music that's playing is perfectly suited to...

Re: SIM cards with SMS bundles

Thanks... I'm aware of all the alternative methods of communication but the app deals specifically with SMS messages.

Re: GBP vs THB

Apparently, the markets are seeing this as a signal for a longer and softer Brexit and it might be the start of a recovery of the pound. Obviously the election has to achieve the majority that May is looking for before there is any real change. The fate of the pound probably over the next few weeks...

He'll only get as much opportunity to practice as anybody else; Thursday FP1 & 2, and Saturday FP3. Anything else, other than simulator work, would be in breach of regulations*. He's one of the fittest guys on the grid, and has experience of driving cars before they pussied out in 2011 & 2014, so he...

Re: Belgian businessman jumps to death from Hua Hin hotel

He wasn't a victim of a real estate business and, as far as I know he wasn't even involved in any real estate business, though he was having issues with a house he had purchased. It was a cumulation of many personal issues in his life that led to him getting into the condition he was in. None of whi...

Re: SIM cards with SMS bundles

Thanks for the links. I am aware of gateway services but unfortunately they're not suitable for this purpose, as I'm essentially developing an SMS app which needs to use the phone for sending (and receiving)

SIM cards with SMS bundles

I know SMS is pretty old school but I'm in a situation where I need to send quite a few of them. I've been on various providers websites (AIS, True and Dtac) and the only pay and go bundles I can find are for data. Individual SMS charges aren't exactly cheap, either. Does anybody know if any SMS bun...

Re: ATM charges at AEON, Bluport

Yes that was nice. Still, a 70bt discount off the going rate will allow you an extra Chang or two (depending where you're drinking...) for each withdrawal. Probably not worth going out of your way for, but if you frequent Bluport (and probably Market Village... tbc!) regularly then it's worth managi...

ATM charges at AEON, Bluport

I don't know if it's the same in all branches, but I noticed that I was only charged 150bt for a foreign withdrawal at AEon in Bluport. With most banks now charging 220, that's quite a saving.

Re: Hua Hin Bluport Mall news and updates

Just a word of warning for anybody who might be thinking of having a late lunch/early dinner in Bluport and would possibly fancy a beer or wine with their meal; all restaurants bizarrely observe and strictly enforce no sale of alcohol between 2 and 5pm!

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration and passport office

Just noticed that in the picture the strip across the shop front says"One Stop Service". I wonder what that implies. And why would anyone who doesn't live near the new office trek all the way out there if they can more easily go to Bluport? I don't know what it implies but there's also a sign sayin...
