Re: Driving license renewal at Nong Khai

Received a phone call from Immigration to say they had prepared my certificate of residence form for the Driving Licence office. On Thursday went to DL and handed in the paperwork, did the usual red/yellow/green eye test, and then a check on peripheral vision, which I have never seen before, I actua...

Re: Driving license renewal at Nong Khai

That sounds like a good plan to go to AEK, my initial licence actually was sourced from that office.

Driving license renewal at Nong Khai

Yesterday I went to the NK Vehicle office to renew my car driving license. The receptionist told me I must go to Immigration and get a form. Went to Immigration, they say I must have a letter from the Vehicle Office before they can do their bit. So, back to VO, and eventually I receive a letter to t...

Re: Overpass/tunnel Udon Ringroad Nongkai Hwy

The roads around the works are indeed becoming very difficult to manoeuvre, large pits are forming, and as said above, mud and water everywhere. Avoid the area like the plague during peak hours. Travelling to airport tomorrow morning will see what happens then, an early start however. Overall, the p...

Re: Islamic State on the March

How can it happen that Muslim Extremists are openly allowed to gather in groups on the streets in England demand Sharia, call openly for be headings and burn the union jack while police stand and watch. Yet if anyone gathers, protesting about this they are immediately classed as inciting racial hat...

Re: Should Boris Apologize?

To whom should he apologise?, he has stated his opinion on a matter that is supported by the majority of British subjects. He has every right to say what he says. We must not let religious fanatics take over the country with their mediaeval views. The next step will be Muslims insisting that Christi...

Re: Yet More British Stupidity !!!

Presumably the UK has a really serious problem with the illegal dumping of rubbish. The pricks doing that make life more difficult for others. [/q Local UK councils have become too big for their boots, with over-reaching powers, but with very little accountability. A job for life, is the norm, if y...

I like and get most of my bakery products from the japanese bakery alongside Tops in the center, they have everything mentioned in the Op but my favourite is the breakfast muffins, four in a pack for 36bht .
Yes indeed, the Yamazaki shop is a godsend.

Re: Supermarket prices out of control

From what I have heard the New Zealand brand, Mainland cheese issue was the same issue in Tops & Villa as well - which suggests that the issue came either from the importer quoting incorrect prices or Customs imposed an incorrect tariff rate. Having just come back from the UK, where I could purchas...

Re: re: Chinese tour cancellations for Phuket ’worse than estimated..

The comment below from a Phuket official :-

“Things will get better after the last body has been recovered and handed back to the family,” he added.

Sometimes, most times with Thai officials, better to keep your mouth shut.

Fargo is an absolute classic, it needs watching multiple times to catch all the action.
