Re: Overpass/tunnel Udon Ringroad Nongkai Hwy

The locals seem to 'push it' a lot. Actually, if the new construction requires some enhancement to its' concrete, I do like the more m...

Yes, the sort of thing you'd expect on April 1st. April Fools Day for those not in the know. But perhaps the good news is that the affliction of clapping oneself/or with the audience e.g. if you gave a correct answer, will now cease?

Re: Brazen Daytime Theft

Hands up, well done the Udon police for the happy ending. So, sorry, if it didn't cause me to smile to see the farang present the senior officer in the video opportunity with a handful of flowers. Perhaps it's my age, my years of being here and experience, but I'm very sure he would have preferred s...

Re: Udon Smorgasbord

Brian, I have seen the big hall used quite a bit, Last Sunday all students had to attend some session (no idea what). I dropped daughter off early Sunday morning from weekend at home and the place was buzzing. Ok, Essex. Obviously, if there isn't an alternative gathering place for student functions...

Maybe Brian, the "small shorts are bad" protagonist can enlighten us? I think you must read my post again Tamada - i.e."I'm not in any way protesting".

I don't know if this is any use to you, maybe duplicating your "new place", although some info doesn't match. Today, my near 8 year old started his second weekend at the Zalvo Arena, next to the big Chinese Temple. It's called the UDFC Academy and sure enough, the coaches I've witnessed there are th...

Re: Volleyball Tournament

Had a quick look in there today and was quite impressed. A main court (is that the term for sand?) with fairly generous seating all round, then several other ordinary ones with not enough seating, it seemed. I didn't realise it was a women AND men tournament. Seems quite well organised. Hundreds of ...

Thanks for the information, sometimewoodworker. Regarding medical expenses, the reminder of the distinction between visas and extensions of stay is useful.
