Re: Car Deals

Rented the new CRV, 2.4lt for 12 days and was very happy with it. Furthermore, you'll be able to use E 85, which was about B 24.81 a lt, compared to gasohol 91, B 38.++.

Excellent handling over the ever-worsening-road condition from Phuket to HH.

Re: Normal tip for caddie in Hua Hin ?

We received the letter from the Country Club Phuket of increased caddie fee as of 1st of February 2014 of B 400 (tip to be recommended by them: B 400 for 18 holes/B 300 for 9 holes).

It could quickly catch-on here in HH also.

Re: swimming pool small or big?

Our pool was mostly used by visitors with children. Occasionally for us after 4.30 pm. Cost/cleaning/pump/under-water-lights/salt needs to be taken care by someone. When we were not there, no salt was ever put in. It is similar with the pest control people, who didn't spray underneath the house with...

Re: SET Watch: The Thailand Stock Market thread

I'll try to answer the questions mentioned. You need to open an account with (Tanachart) for example. You cannot trade from outside Thailand, unless you have set up your account. They then assess your financial situation and give you a daily trading amount. I think we'll started with B 700 k and are...
