Re: Sewing (turning up needed)

Depending on where-abouts you live in town...If you go West over the Chomsin Rd rail crossing..past Gee-supermarket on your left..at the point where the main Rd goes to the right...aim straight ahead...& almost straight away on your left is a motorcycle repair shop...& right next to them sits a man ...

Re: Ranong, staying in Kawthoung/Victoria Point (Burma)

Two mates of mine stayed over on that side about 10yrs ago..They said it was the longest night ever..nothing to do, noisy, & they simply stayed in the hotel room & drank the cheap rum they'd bought earlier.
BUT..it may be different now..??

I did a U-turn on Poolsuk Rd at 7,30 one morning..only c...

Re: Has anyone built a screened lanai or American style screened veranda

Are you needing it to be mozzie-proof young Sire, or simply a structure with screened walls AND maybe a roof of some-sort..? (I was gonna suggest a greenhouse..5-5-5!)
