Re: Airport Transit Question__Different airlines.

I am pretty sure you can stay airside. If you cannot get a boarding pass for the onward flight when you check in then you should be able to either get one at the transfer desk in Schipol or do it online.

Re: Toss the kettle, you should microwave your tea!

Tea making is an art, not a science. Just as some people prefer a Picasso and others a Monet, good tea is very much a personal taste. The scientist's method may produce a decent cuppa but is unlikely to be adopted as most dedicated tea drinkers are set in their ways.

Re: Nissan Dealership Hua Hin - A Word of Caution

I bought a Vios there four years ago and had some very shoddy work done where pipes where parts were not replaced that should have been. Bought a Hilux from Cha Am twenty two years ago and never had a problem. Now I take the Vios there rather than HH. Obviously peoples experiences will differ but bo...

Re: Nissan Dealership Hua Hin - A Word of Caution

While I was at work a problem developed with the turbo on my year old Navara. It spent over a month in Nissan HH and then went back as they had not tightened up a fuel connection (sounds familiar to phartley58's problem). When I returned and had a chance to look a bit closer it was obvious that mice...

Re: Songkran 2017

If, and it is a huge if, the new seatbelt purge takes effect and people are not allowed in the back of pickup trucks Songkran will not be the same. Much as nowadays I keep clear of the "fun" I do have fond memories of loading up the truck with a few ongs full of water and the family having an enjoya...

Re: All car passengers now required to buckle up

Another law to add to the plethora of existing laws, the enforcement of which is appaling at best. No doubt enforcement/extortion checks will abound as the end of the month approaches.

Re: Just say Hello...

The forum has its moments, quiet for a few days then livens up. Ask a question and you usually get an answer. Most people are okay but you may get the odd sarcastic troll but it is better than some other forums. Enjoy.

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

I thank that three assumptions are being made here that the chances of more than one of them applying to the majority of Thai drivers is very slim. 1) that they can read Thai 2) that they know what the sign means 3) that they even looked at the sign in the first place The list could no doubt be adde...

Re: Arthritis Hand Tools

My first thought was an oil filter removal tool but if you look on Lazada using the search "jar opener" in the kitchen section they have some items that may be suitable working similarly to the middle of the items in the photos.

Re: Flashing headlights

Perhaps I need to clarify that the nephew mentioned in my earlier comment is Thai. In the UK while the highway code may say otherwise the generally accepted practice is that a short flash or two means go ahead and turn across my path. A series of multiple flashes or a long continuous shining of full...

Re: Flashing headlights

Recently while driving towards Cha am on Petkasem with my nephew in the passenger seat he was telling me to flash ny headlights at vehicles waiting at the U turns. His view is that unless you flash they are likely to assume you are trvelling slow enough to allow time for them to pull out in front of...

Re: Flashing headlights

I am pretty sure that in the UK Highway Code the only meaning of flashing headlights is to indicate one's presence. It usually indicates that another driver is either letting you across or telling you to stop hogging the right hand lane as undertaking is illegal in the UK (not so in many other count...

Re: The i-things - Apple devices and software thread

Try installing a free app like Strava that will really enable tou to be obsessional about your exercise. In the settings somewhere I think that there is an option to keep the screen lit while in use but it will drain the battery faster.
