Re: Arrest warrants sought for match-fixing in Thai football

Doesn't surprise me one little bit. Thais aren't stupid, and there's no way so many referees could be so incompetent.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

A bit more Hua Hin flooding. Unfortunately, I hadn't inserted my SD Card correctly on the outbound journey. This video is about 2 hours later after workmen had been tackling the problem.

A few short clips from my dashcam today - it gets better as the video goes on.

Re: Poor choice of dashcams on Lazada!

Most of the phone shops sell them - they're the ones I use, and are a third of the cost of the ones mentioned above.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Yes, there was one poor lady stood on Soi 94 with a sweeping brush trying to divert the water from going into her home. Unfortunately, she was ankle deep, and she was having absolutely no effect.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

It's not just 102 guys, I've just told my daughter to leave her motorcycle here, and I've dropped her home. Soi 94 is like a raging river, Soi 96 has shoes that people have left outside of their houses floating everywhere and Petchkasem is a lake - be very careful out there, especially if on a motor...

Re: International Fleet Review 2017 - Pattaya

Here's the parade - I think they'd lost the will to live by this stage: https://youtu.be/H7bNxdx0S-E Here's the rain that preceded the parade. We only got soaked thanks to a leaky Burger King umbrella. The really bad thunder had passed by this time, and it was brightening up. Others drowned: https:/...

Re: International Fleet Review 2017 - Pattaya

Yes, I'll post a video later. I was that drowned rat. You will see that by the time they got to me, it was one of the shabbiest displays of military marching ever.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

I've just travelled home from Pattaya - we had some evil weather yesterday just as the show was starting. I was amazed with thunder and lightning directly overhead that the parachutists came through it, then there was a low flying plane, followed by an even lower flying helicopter before they pulled...

Re: House market in Hua Hin

Again, some are grossly overpriced, some are selling at a reasonable price. The houses near me are on sale at double their sensible market value. You have to look around and decide what is a fair price before parting with any cash.

Re: Hua Hin Recycling Facility

He drives up our street a couple of times a week with loudspeaker blaring. He buys it all. PM me your address and phone number, and I'll get Mrs BB to ask him to call in. He'll definitely buy all of the stuff you're talking about. He probably comes up your road - you just think he's selling flower p...

Re: Hua Hin Recycling Facility

Basically, wait for the recycling truck to come up your road. They will pay you for it..We sold an old fan to them a couple of weeks ago for 120 Baht. They'll take most electrical household goods.

Re: House market in Hua Hin

I think it's the same the world over. The answer is yes and no. There are good and bad - as DB says though, rent, take your time and buy something you really want, if you are sure. I've bought, I'm happy and will live here until I die, so the onsale market does not bother me. However, there are 4 ho...

Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

Staying in a hotel at the moment - no fans. Aircon last night for the first time in 2 months. This morning my nose is running like a tap.

OK, DM may be correct, it might be just me, but it's too much to be coincidence.
