Re: TV series worth downloading

Comrade Detective Dubbed into English by a strong cast and in places quite amusing. In the thick of 1980's Cold War hysteria, the Romanian government created the country's most popular and longest-running series, Comrade Detective, a sleek and gritty police show that not only entertained its citizen...

Re: Sending money to Thailand

Just a quick update on Transferwise:-

5 a.m. requested transfer and monies in my Thai a/c by 1.30pm same day, the quickest transfer yet. If I had gone with my Bank i would think it would have arrived on Monday or Tuesday.

I used the debit card option which seems to be the quickest.

Re: lens replacement eye surgery

Another big "thumbs up" for Dr Pairat. I've been living in a constant state of "fog" for the past 6 months or so. Had the left eye done by him as an in patient at BKK HH Hospital. Bupa had already pre approved the estimated 42,000baht cost. Final bill came to just over 37K. Thick lens reading glasse...

Re: Thailand speed limits to be halved?

I may well be wrong but it may also refer to small villages etc, you often see signs that state "City limit, please reduce speed" or along those lines. The definition of City may well be "lost in translation" as I do remember an ex girlfriend constantly referring to her home town as a city when in f...
