Re: Pound/Baht Fluctuation

For Gods sake, it is what it is on any given day, there's nothing we can do about it, get used to it, live with it and adjust your cloth to fit your pocket, or get out. No amount of discussion on here is going to change it, but we are still free in how we spend or save it, just thank your lucky star...

Re: Top three things you miss from home?

Well the main thing I miss is the Agricultural shows staged mainly around the East of England. These were a good day out with not only agricultural displays but livestock competitions, craft tents including the WI one with their home made cakes and jams etc, motor shows and my real love the dog show...

Can anyone please recommend a baker in Udon that sells tasty uncut loaves & rolls.

If they also sell fruit loaves (spiced or unspiced) that would be a big bonus.

Many thanks in advance.
How can such a simple request attract so much nonsense?

Re: Bakers in Udon

I forgot to add their butter croissants at just 20bht each are as nice as any I have had outside France .i will admit they do have a lot of very sweet pastries etc , but that is what Thai like, but the bread and croissants are not sweet at all . I couldn't eat them if they were, I hate sweet in food .

Re: R.I.P.PHil

Was in the mortuary on other business today and was surprised to see his remains are still listed as being in there, apparently he didn't have a legal Thai wife and the delay is caused by contacting the next of kin in the UK .Maybe a heads up for those who have just had the village style wedding .
