Re: Hua Hin Restaurant News

I know this site does not welcome reviews, I would love to hear what members of our German community think of it, although I guess you can assess that by driving past in the early evening and noting how busy it is.

Re: Cancer - no longer the bogeyman?

Oh yes, the big three are not useless, there are some great successes. Childhood leukemia being one of them but many other cancers are not responsive. It is really sad that Breast, Lung and Colon Cancers are still big killers--The immunio therapy could help attack many if not all resistant cancers.

Re: MSG in Thai food

Its funny what we rely on to improve taste. My mother added a splash of Bovril and a few splashes of Les & Perrins to every meat dish she cooked.

Re: Cancer - no longer the bogeyman?

Surgery, Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy ---- The answer is probably not in these three but in Immunotherapy, getting the body to recognize and reject cancer cells as it does with other invaders. Then the trio of treatments that we use now will go the way of bleeding and blistering.

Re: Hua Hin airport due for upgrade

Isn't the proximity of the Royal Palace and the fact that the flight path from the runway goes over it part of the reluctance to have more flights?

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

I am struck by how men who start a second family later in life almost always say about themselves that they are much better fathers the second time around.

Re: Hua Hin airport due for upgrade

Is this a chicken and egg question. Should you enlarge airports to accommodate the existing flights or Attract some flights and then enlarge to accommodate. Do the airlines that have trialed HH and failed done so because of the airport or lack of passengers. Guess the dream is direct Beijing and Sha...

Re: MSG inThai food

If it is food cooked in front of you and is individualized there is a chance of cutting down on the MSG and sugar.

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

This maybe slightly off topic, I hope not.I am amazed at the number of parents in their retirement years are still helping financially to support their grown children. I know one 70+ guy here who is paying part of the mortgages on his 2 children's houses in the UK, One is 40+, the other late thirties.

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

I also wonder how a woman can marry and have children with a man who they know has abandoned his first family. Of course for many Thai ladies "The future" is next week.

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

I left when my daughter was 24 finished UNI and working and my son was 21 in Uni and I supported him till he finished. At the time I felt very guilty and they both have been very hard on me for "deserting them"
