Where to find Yum Yum Curry Flavour?

While I'm at work in Africa I buy Yum Yum brand curry flavoured soup it is my favorite but I can't find it in Thailand. It is a Thai brand and made in Thailand but so far I haven't seen it for sale anywhere in the kingdom.

Has anyone seen it for sale in Thailand?

Re: Electric Cars

With populations moving to live in the cities it will be interesting what solutions governments will come up with to be able to charge electric cars. Look at Bangkok for example. Parking in near impossible to find and often people double park. Can you imagine asking Thais to share power outlets. I k...

Re: Legal status of illegal vehicle

My dash cam connects via wifi to my phone. In the event of an accident a copy of the video will be on Youtube before I give it to the insurance guy and/or cop. I will let them see it too so they know its online. One can never be too sure what collusion is going on between the police and insurance rep.

Re: Legal status of illegal vehicle

I have to wonder how these 50/50 verdicts will work in the future with many people now having car cams. One would think insurance companies will not be so eager to agree with police verdicts when they have video evidence.

Custom Made Parrot Cage

Has anyone had strong custom welded parrot type cages made in Hua Hin that could recommend for me a shop. I know of a good place in Bangkok but would like to give the work to locals if possible.

Thanks

Re: Club Moto Kawasaki big bike shop

I'm waiting for them to bring back the Z900 for test ride. I like the Ninja 650 KRT but I would kick myself for committing to it without riding the Z900 first. Shame that the pillion seat cowl doesn't come with the KRT it is a separate accessory. The Akaprovic exhast is also expensive @ 37000 Baht.

Re: Thai electric car

The dream of EV will not come easy to countries like Thailand where few parking spaces near a residence exist and no street based power outlets are available. The cable thieves will have a hay day. You can just imagine how Thais would try to steal the power from their neighbors by unplugging them an...

Washer Dryer Combos

I am considering purchasing a front load washer dryer combo. I used one in Korea a few years ago and really liked it they are very convenient for rainy days (like today). However online reviews are overall quite negative. Any owner that can give me their first hand experience/opinion.

Is it worth going to Dang Singkon market?

I know this has been asked before however things change fast in Thailand.

Has anyone gone recently? Is it worth the drive from Hua Hin? Is it all Chinese junk or are there interesting items from Myanmar for sale?

Croaking Wood Frogs

Does anyone know where I could buy some souvenir croaking frogs made from wood in HH? The ones with the baton that you remove from their side and stroke the back to make a croaking sound.

Re: Do you need an onward ticket for entry into Thailand?

Working overseas I have had the same problem when I was using my return ticket to Bangkok. The easiest way to get around it is to book a refundable ticket leaving Thailand (Air Asia to KL for example). Once you arrive you cancel the ticket online.

Re: Solid wood floor vs Engineered wood floor

Pick the flooring that will resist the eventuality of termites. If you haven't noticed there are many termite control trucks driving around the city. Tile or granite is the only thing I would ever put on my floors.
