Re: Wristwatch Repair / Service

I used the Market Village watch repair shop for my wife’s Longines. Great battery just a shame 3 of the 6 screws in the back were broken! Don’t touch with a barge pole! Clumsy beyond imagination.

Re: Tropical fish store?

It would be helpful if people specified marine or tropical. I used to keep and breed tropical (freshwater) but these are more simple than marine!

Re: Harsh new penalties for unlicensed driving 'not yet law'

Harsh new penalties for dangerous and careless driving might be more to the point!

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

If you want to put a Chinese person in their place for bad behaviour say “nee sham ba lao”.
It means you are a village person or peasant. It usually works!

Re: Things you had better get used to living in Thailand

I recently signed up here in the hope that there may be some useful postings. I am still looking! In the main it is a series of bitching and moaning from, in the main, people who can’t afford to live here and compare everything with home. Never mind the Thais, some of whom I find delightful, the wes...

Nice guy, speaks good English. 1.5 MM for a new one plus many extras fitted free. MPG amazingly good for such a big car, fi...

Re: Possible land purchase 2.5km outside HH centre. Planning to build houses. Advice please.

The rule of thumb is Thailand is both laws and legal interpretation favour Thais absolutely. Whatever, your 49% ownership of the Bangkok Spa is worthless if it came to financial say or division and the same would apply to the proposed land purchase.
Eyes wide open!

Re: Mitsubishi Hua Hin

That is precisely why I wrote here! I too had read the negative comments and talked to the owner about them. He was fully aware and keen to listen to western expectations. His service manager speaks English as do two new sales hires. He strikes me as a thoroughly nice young man and open minded.

Mitsubishi Hua Hin

It is easy to criticise and many fail to praise when due. I have just completed the purchase of a new Pajero from Mitsubishi Hua Hin. Owned and run by “Bobby” and “Joy” - a charming young Thai couple, I have never received better service from a car dealer anywhere in the world. All requests and assi...
