Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

There are lot of Tae Chiews in Bangkok. If you mean those from the Chaoshan region, that's where my other half's' family originate from. But she say's the Thai Chinese are from all over China. Hell of a coincidence, as we were just discussing this earlier and my reference to Bangkok was down to the...

Where are most of the Hua Hin Chinese originally descended from?
Probably Bangkok! :D

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

For Gods Sake Caller the Key Visa service is excellent why knock it? Didn't know I was knocking it. I was just asking what I regard as a pertinent question. They don't mention this at all on their website. And if I am to let them handle my passports I would want to know what measures they have in p...

LOL - but nothing changes :)
But why would it if I am the only one that bothers? They are not Police officers as every Thai and most expats know and can be ignored at will in any case.

Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

I am told by my other half that it has a Chinese name, not Thai and Wenshidi is there or thereabouts as my other half came up with 'Jek Bier' but that second word is long with a rising tonal accent.

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

I'm sure Key Visa provide an excellent service, but what guarantees do they give about securing the integrity of your passport? Thailand does, after all, have a reputation as a centre for passport and identity fraud.

Re: Hua Hin's most dangerous pedestrian crossing

Could it be because the defacto police officers don't understand traffic lights and wave traffic through when the lights are red? I wasn't referring to their effectiveness or otherwise, just the fact they are there because the company realises there are issues and basically cannot call on the Polic...

Re: Hua Hin's most dangerous pedestrian crossing

I asked my other half about the lights at Bluport and as known really, they were provided by the company for the convenience of their customers. The facility is then handed to the local municipality to run on an ongoing basis. However, if problems arise, they may then ask the company to pay to fix t...

Re: Hua Hin's most dangerous pedestrian crossing

I might try and find out from my other half who works for The Mall group, although not at Bluport, but I believe that the lights and those at Bangkok Hospital have been provided by the companies themselves and as such it's possible they are not even formally recognised by the Police here. Seems craz...

Re: The ever-improving state of Hua Hin's roads

Thai logic? At the end of the financial year, every government department in the UK that hasn't already overspent does the same. Paperclip stocks soar. That used to be the case in the Govt. Department I worked for but it changed when we gained agency status. Likewise, it used to be the case in the ...

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

What package are you on BB? I can't tell you too much about mine, but it has the premier football obviously and various other English programmes and some Thai stuff that Pam likes, although she often picks up Korean stuff via youtube. It seems odd you can't pay via the machine so I guess yours is a ...

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

I can't help you BB, but once a month, just before the 1st, I wander into True at Bluport and wait by their payment machines, someone comes over, I show them my account number from my phone, that's keyed into the machine, the bill amount comes up - same figure each month - and I pay my bill by card,...

Re: Iceland in Villa Market

We're going off topic here, but wasn't there a lot of publicity a couple of years ago about some sort of shrimp being transported from Thailand to Scotland (or may have been the other way around) for packaging? That's what Iceland did, quite a bit of their stuff came to Thailand fir processing and ...
