Re: Elections delayed again, PM denies involvement

^^ The great man's own words (from the above article): “You cannot say that we haven't done anything, otherwise, why have we been here for the past four years?” he said at a recent news briefing.

There's a shop on Petchakasem road near the Cockpit tyre place that sells just car batteries and chargers, they have a Bosch sign outside.
Give us a clue, where is cockpit shop
Soi 54/1, towards the palace.

Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

I notice plenty of Chinese in Hua Hin Market Village and the night market. But they tend to be young couples, small groups of young friends or young families. Nothing disruptive. None of the big tour groups and their buses that Pattaya apparently gets. I think it was the same when the Russians were ...

Re: 'How To' - Requirements for visa extensions etc

I remember that. But isn't it now Prachuabkhirikhan immigration, of which both Hua Hin and Dan Singkhon are subsidiary?

Yes there is (ร - ro reaua), just that many Thais, especially in central Thailand, pronounce it as "l". I do agree that catching tones can be pretty difficult as aging dulls the sense of hearing. If you know enough Thai though, context usually helps.

Re: RE: Re: Hotel key card leads to identity of foreigner washed up on Hua Hin beach

Do Portuguese go swimming clothed? Apart your ironic remark, why not ? Maybe the choice was swimming with clothes or naked. Go to the beach and you will see Thai people swimming with clothes. How is it ironic? I know Thais go swimming clothed, but it seemed strange to me that a European would. Howe...

Re: Banking in HH

@caller - Not sure. Maybe it can be used for sites that accept credit card payments but not debit card payments. Also refunds can be paid to it, not sure if that can be done with a debit card. But mainly, it's safer. You can specify the credit limit between 0 and whatever is in the associated accoun...

Re: Kbank debit cards Verified by Visa

Maybe not with debit cards. If you want to use for internet shopping they may prefer you to use the virtual web card, which I have successfully set set up for VbV some years ago. Though I haven't done it with my current web card, which works fine without it.
