PTT 49 Baht Car Wash

Thats a good find, I routinely park there and stretch my legs, and other parts, there used to be a 20baht car park just round the corner, but I think that may now be closed. Much easier to outlay 49baht,and have a car wash whilst shopping.

South Korean heiress arrested for "Nut Rage"

It is the same the world over, Daddy appointing son or daughter to board of directors, a part time nonsense titled job, but with a handsome salary.

Good to see a new outlet becoming available shortly, and good to see that you intend putting prices on goods for sale. I am getting fed up with some older outlets that have no prices on goods. I will visit ASAP.

Noise!

[/quote] There you have it in a nutshell. Thais are conceived in noise, carried in the womb amongst noise, born into noise, and live their entire lives in noise. Don't know if they are " immune " to sounds...they just don't hear the way we do. How many time have we watched our wives sleep through ba...

a decent spade

Been through all this years ago. Got a mate to bring a Wilkinson Stainless steel spade and fork over for me. I see all the Thais eyeing them up when I'm outside working. Try ebay and see how much it will cost to have them shipped over. I recently got a Flymow shipped over and it wasn't that expensi...

Is Phuket worth the trip?

The Ladies I encountered were not selling somtan, perhaps I am wrong , but what were they then? I only had 2.5 days on Phuket, but in that time we visited as many places as possible outside of our hotel in Patong, based there as my wife was designing websites for a local bar. I referred to "Phuket i...

Is Phuket worth the trip?

Your Thai family will have great trouble believing most Thai residents of Phuket are their countrymen so it may be quite an experience for them. Fully agree, I was shocked with the pushy attitude of Phuket in general, I used to visit Pattaya, but never go there either now, mainly because of Eastern...

Feral Dogs

Like most local villages, we are infested with feral dogs, going down some sois in the evening, even on a bike is impossible, does anyone know of a legal local way of dealing with them. I had an "ultrasonic" phaser (DAZER) in the UK, but it was broken upon arrival here.

Take away coffee rip off

[ Would I be correct in saying that some "BonCafe" outlets, are not exactly what it says on the box. Some I have visited are serving poor quality coffee, certainly not Boncafe coffee, but a cheaper bean. A proper Boncafe outlet is well run, neat and tidy, with a wide range of foods and off course th...
