Re: Desiccant sachets for food?

Thank you mwbrown, got them in Daiso today and they’re exactly what I was after. I've used these ones before and found that a couple of them tucked in a lock'n'seal box definitely helped to keep biscuits or crackers from going soft for the couple of weeks or so until I finished the packet. 😊 Awesom...

Re: Claiming the 15% holding tax back from fixed term bank accounts

I have been claiming my fixed account withholding tax back for the last 4 tax years and had nothing but extremely helpful assistance. I handed a lady my bank form and tax id slip, she filled everything in for me. I did it for 2017 a few weeks ago, I was the only customer in the office on Soi 88 and ...

Re: Desiccant sachets for food?

I found some dessicant packets at Daiso in the basement of Market Village and BluPort. It will take some hunting to find them, but they're there.

Re: Traffic Light Camera???

I saw him too! He had the camera on a monopod/tripod and since it was drizzling he had a white cloth over it. I thought it was a tourist.

Re: Tira Tirra or Baan Klang Condos

I live in Tira Tiraa year-round, have been here for 4 years. I can easily say it's very, very quiet in the hallways and generally everywhere. Our owners and renters are generally older folks so never any screaming children in the pool. There is a pay Wifi system with two routers per hallway. You buy...

Re: Roller Skating in Hua Hin

Yep, I walked past it today, just to the right of the cinema refreshment counter. Looks like fun for kids and adventurous adults.

I did pretty well last year but I think a monkey throwing darts at the wall could do better than me this year. Damn!

Re: Electric Cars

A car has been spotted in town with a sign "Hua Hin EV Charging Station". I suspect the charger is at the PEA office, I'll check it out soon, but if anybody spots the car, please ask the driver where the charger is and post back here. Thanks!

Re: El Toro Loco bar closed?

I saw Cartoon outside the new Soi 94 site last week, he said the contractor doing the work told him they need between 1 and 2 more weeks to complete, so looking like July 28 to August 4.

Re: Tessaban Hua Hin

I just got my Pink card at the Tessaban on Monday. I handed them my passport, blue book and yellow book but they only wanted my yellow book. They took a picture and both thumb prints and handed me the card after about 30 minutes total. Cost was 60 baht. I found them very friendly and helpful.

Re: 2017 F1 News and Prediction Tournament

As a side note, Alonso retired from the Indianapolis 500 with just a few laps to go due to Honda engine failure. Honda should simply get out of the racing game. No racing engine they've produced is reliable. :cuss: Alonso was in the lead shortly, and I think 7th when he retired. Pete :cheers: http:...

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration and passport office

I was at the grand opening event on Tuesday May 9. Lots of officials and pictures and flowers and speeches in Thai. They did say however, several times in English that they will do 4 services: 1) "Visa Extension" which we all know is really Extension of Stay 2) Re-Entry Permit 3) 90 Day Report 4) Re...
