Re: The scourge of Facebook

They are advertising to these dead people and subsequently reporting these advertising statistics to their clients to justify or increase their rates. Great business model if you can get away with it! :shock: :banghead: Pete :cheers: They're not advertising to them, though, are they? Unless they're...

Re: The Beer Thread

Other Thai / Cambodian low volume micro brewery beers are now widely available. Are any of them brewed locally? Or are all of them brewed abroad an imported? I'm no expert, but it's my understanding the corporate interests of Singha and Chang are protected by law and the tax imposed on small indepe...

With the new timings it is not even possible to have a day trip in either direction.
Neither was it with the old timings; the boat left Pattaya at 11am, arrived in Hua-Hin at 1pm, unloaded passengers, loaded new passengers, and then headed straight back to Pattaya.

The 5star hotels are meticulous about hygiene and yet in 10 years in China the worst attack of the runs that I had was after eating at the Hilton and I ate in some really suspicious places.
And how do you know that the food from the Hilton was the cause?

Re: 2018 F1 News and Prediction Tournament

To me another clear example that this is not racing, it's some kind of abomination dreamt up by Eccelstone and his cronies to make money, IMO Well there's plenty of things that you can sat against Bernie, but he was dead against the introduction of the v6 turbo formula and did what he could to figh...

Re: The Beer Thread

I tried a can of Snowy last night. Tasted ok; a watered-down Hoegarten clone for 55bt can't be considered bad. I just wish that they'd priced it at 80bt and given it a bit of a fuller flavour - it'd still be a lot cheaper than any of the competition. I kind of hope it does well; then perhaps Tiger w...

Re: 80 foreigners arrested in nationwide crackdown on schools and teachers

a photo copy of your passport and visa can be folded up and carried quite easily. I keep a copy in the car. If you're carrying around a copy of your passport make sure you include a copy of the page with your latest immigration stamp, and not just the photo page, as the photo page doesn't confirm t...

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

I can't actually recall ever being given the wrong amount of change in Thailand, other than at a few Mom and Pop shops. Of course, it is always an innocent mistake, but it does intrigue me as to how these innocent mistakes never result in me being handed too much change. It only ever in the shop ow...

Re: Bangkok Hospital: hope you have health insurance or plenty of cash

It's the same for most countries now; you have to have health insurance to get a visa. Soon only the wealthy will be able to travel, which is probably what most govts. want. Keep out the backpackers. Backpackers tend to be relatively young and therefore don't generally have problems getting medical...

Re: Rip off laundry

When I picked it up yesterday morning everything was packed up in 2 plastic bags, including the shirts and long trousers, but no hangers and NO check bin, refused to give me one in fact despite repeated requests, and then: 640 Baht!

Fox Sports access for 9bt/day

I discovered this little gem by accident but as somebody who only watches F1, and even then likes to go out to watch the races when I can, this is a great little way to get coverage of the sessions when I'm at home without needing to pay a monthly subscription. There are some caveats; you need an AI...

Thanks Pleng, but my prime requirement is a decent live Premier League stream. I couldn't find that on the listings. Nice try though :thumb:
Do FOX not carry the Premier League?
