Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

Shopping Bags to put your shopping into? Else how does one transport the shopping to retrieve the bags, which are now trapped the wrong side of the security point?

Re: Charges for installing an internet cable/service

Yes, I believe we have at least one other thread on that when it was news :wink:

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

No, it is about the reduction of plastic shopping bags, which in my case, would be reduced to zero if the shops saw sense.

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

Yes, that is correct, but a lot of faffing about, when its totally unnecessary.

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

All supermarkets as far as I know, but definitely Tesco where we do the majority of our shop, and is where we were stopped trying - there is a sign saying so. We've been stopped at G Supermarket in the past as well. Thinking about it, the old shopping mall as well - they have, or at least used to ha...

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

This is all good stuff, but for me, the first and most important part is to remove restrictions on carrying bags into supermarkets. Yes, I've heard the lucky ones who get their bags into the store, but not this happy shopper. It's bad enough being dragged to the shops every day, but then having to f...

Re: Shoe Repairs

I spotted a shoe (and bag) repair booth whilst out and about this morning. It's a little hut through a gate at the traffic light junction of Soi 56 and the Klong Road. I took a couple of photos with my new phone, but the sun was very bright, and being new, I had my finger over the lens :oops: I've n...

Re: Charges for installing an internet cable/service

I have TV with my Internet - TV is excellent, and very cheap. I would imagine as good a deal as you'd get anywhere.

Re: Tops Supermarket in Hua Hin?

Talking of farang goods, I just bought 'ginger nuts' at Nanny's. Never seen them here before and always had to wait for my visitors to bring me a few packets. I was in Nannys yesterday, and I noticed their Tesco Digestives were 15 Baht dearer than Tesco. Also their Tesco Custard Creams were 31 Baht...

Re: Treatment For Farangs At Hua Hin Hospital

My wife was getting her diabetes check-up at the same time as I've had mine, and they've told me my wife can have her check-up with me in the Express Clinic. I expect they told you that for the same reason as I don't use it for my wife. I'd guess your mother-in-law, like my wife gets everything for ...

Re: What are the TV service options in Hua Hin.

I have AIS, and yes, there was a small installation cost (Don't remember how much). I know I wasn't upset by the cost. Before AIS, we had True. Again, a small installation cost, but the worse part, they wanted paying for deinstallation as well. I'm sure I could have gotten away with the deinstallati...
