Re: Mr Burger 3 Re-opened as Oasis

I pass it frequently and as far as i can see it's the old Mr Burger 3 site and looks pretty much the same from the road. I usually pass it in the mornings so don't know how busy it may be when open.

Re: A few online Thai Language starting points

I would understand as "whether one thing or another I'm always wrong". อย่างใดอย่างหนึ่ง translates as either... or... . Or one or the other. Dictionary - https://dict.longdo.com/?search=อย่างใดอย่างหนึ่ง.

Maybe nobody finished below them. Maybe "outstanding" is the lowest possible. :)

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

Haven't various governments warned that crypto is a bubble waiting to burst and investors will be hurt? And doesn't it seem that various governments are trying make the prophecy come true?

Re: I think I need a border run?

This used to be the case and probably still is if you don't need more than another 7 days. When your 30 day extension is just about to finish go to immigration and apply for another one. It will be refused but you will get 7 days to leave the country. 1900 baht.

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

That would be Fox sports UK I guess. Different market, different agreements, different contract period.

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

As far as I can see AIS has Fox Sports 1, 2 and 3. These 3 channels are on local cable and don't have any EPL. You can Google fox sports Thailand to see the schedules.

Re: RE: Re: Naebkahart Road Restaurant???

The Thai says rancafe, rather than the usual word for restaurant, which is interesting. I had to double check the Chinese characters as I only studied simplified and these are rather more stylised than I am used to. They read Zheng Sheng, which might be translated as Magnificent! No wonder all the ...

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

Key Visa website has instructions on how to use their service. Unsurprisingly it includes sending the current passport. VFS probably needs to see it. Key Visa will hold onto the passport because they will need it to collect the new one. However, if there is some urgent need to get the passport back ...

Wrong about what? I only commented about MDMK referring to the HMPO service where you send stuff off to UK yourself. The Key Visa deal seems like a reasonable service.

Re: Hua Hin's most dangerous pedestrian crossing

^^ Agree. Thailand should establish a police force. Maybe more than one, but one would be a start.
