Re: Ceiling Fans

When I moved into my house 3 years ago, the 3 fans on the outdoor terrace were barely functional. They may have been 11 years old, if they were installed new when the House was built. They did not have any name brand markings. I did a lot of research and settled on the Mitsubishi model C56-RQ5 as re...

Re: A few online Thai Language starting points

One of my favorite websites is https://www.thai2english.com
I’ve found it to be much more accurate than google. I also paid the license fee and installed their windows based client software, it links to their internet backend and has a wealth of resources that aren’t available on the free website.

SIRADA is located on the ground floor of 83/14 Wongchomsin Building, about 100 meters (maybe 150 meters) south of the Tessaban traffic lights ...

Re: Where can I get spare water tank lids?

Never seen just the lids for sale, good luck. I would probably craft some new ones using wood, and paint them well with oil based paint for durability.

Re: New Year beach parties ??

The fireworks barge is anchored directly offshore of soi 75/1 this year, about a kilometer or 2 farther north than in years past. Easy enough to walk along in this area until you find a party.

Re: Pipe and drain unblocking

Thank you ! I’ve been searching for a plumber with an auger machine for a couple years now, unsuccessfully. My problem pipe is 6” in diameter, do you know if he can address larger pipes like this ?

Re: Kite Surfer Dies Off Hua Hin Beach

Irish kitesurfer a victim of Hua Hin’s perverse tourism drive Bad weather did not kill the Irish kitesurfer in Hua Hin – as the police have implied – but the buoys installed by the municipal authorities a month earlier.

Re: Kite Surfer Dies Off Hua Hin Beach

I’ve been kiting here for years and was appalled a few weeks ago to see the city of Hua Hin had installed this buoy system the entire length of the beach. I kited only once since then, nearly got tangled in the line of buoys and have not been out since then. I know a couple other liters that have be...

Just ordinary syringes / needles, nothing pre-loaded in the ones I've purchased in numerous pharmacies in Hua Hin. I have no information about any syringes preloaded with insulin.

Re: Where to get insulin syringes

Regular syringes and needles are available from just about every pharmacy I've been to in Hua Hin. All sizes, from extremely small to very large, including the sizes of syringe and needles you mention. No prescription required. I've used plenty of them in caring for street dogs over the years, never...

Re: Long term tick and flea treatment for dogs.

I buy the En-Dex 8000 pack of 10 pills at PetMak (Makro Hua Hin) for 150 baht. They also have En-Dex 4000 but I've never priced them.
