Re: The Baguette

There is a new bakery/ coffee shop/ breakfast cafe called "Love Bread" on Phetkasem, about a couple of kilometers past that Venezia monstrosity going N towards Cha Am and its well signposted. Its format is very similar to that of The Baguette, although their staff need to wake up a bit. There is a l...

Re: Smartphone screen replacement

I paid 1600 to replace the glass and the LCD on an Asus Zenphone 5, at the Asus stall on the 3rd floor at Market Village recently. It took 30 minutes.

Re: Another cowardly farang bashing in Hua Hin

If this man has lived here for eight years, then he certainly hasnt learnt very much. Associating with people either involved in or who inhabit the fringes of the prostitution industry is always fraught with danger thanks to their unstable personalities, and the similarly unstable personalities of t...

Re: 5,000 baht bounty for farang who beat teen toilet attendant in Phuket

I read that the "kid" was in fact 19 years old and had been using his mobile to secretly film one of the girls in the clip when she used the toilet earlier to urinate.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Some biblical downpours over the past 48 hours, and a real treat for those weather watchers in the hills or a high floor condo watching the storms as they come rolling in from the sea.

They will do 90 day reports, notification of address, re entry permits and extensions to 30 day tourist visas. They will not do extensions of 1 year...

Re: 3BB Access to Google

I use 3bb and had trouble over the weekend accessing G-mail and Google news sites, but now (Monday am) all is back to normal.

Re: The Energy Cha-am

Out of curiosity we went to view The Energy about 6 months ago, we were told that the development was over 90% sold and the only units left were in the as yet unfinished buildings close to Phetkasem Road. We were shown around the development and were shown a 2 bed unit, it was thoughtfully designed ...
