Re: Thai ex-PM fails to show for verdict

Its a win win win--She has gone, cant come back, is not in jail here acting to fire up her supporters. Its not what anyone did, but what they didnt do---stop her leaving.

Re: NFL In London?

The role of football/soccer in the Us is very healthy-- Millions of boys and girls play the game and love it--OK there is minimal interest in highly priced professional football but what the hell--what is more important--kids playing the game or middle-aged people watching it?

Re: Security at Hua Hin to be stepped up for high season

is this just HH or have they announced more security activity for other tourist destinations? If so it smells like a smoke and mirror activity to counteract the accusations that Thai is not a safe place after the several murders of tourists.

Re: Govt: hellish airport immigration queues must end

Most of the stations have 2 seats and a few will have 2 officers working 1 line, but usually, 80% of them have only 1 officer per station, it is not a shortage of stations, but a shortage of officers that is the problem.

Re: Cars with dashcams get 5-10% discount

Talking of discounts, some Canadian provinces are offering huge rebates if you buy an electric car. As much as $C14,000 (£8750) and also another rebate on installing home charging stations.

Re: Dates when no alcohol sold in Hua Hin

The moderators have locked the thread about the arrangements for the coming solemn events===this is quite understandable.

Re: The Beer Thread

To return to the Malaysian beer situation. Having a pint in a pub in KL is really very expensive, about the equiv of 300b / pint. Much cheaper elsewhere in M, about 220. Although in what is an Islamic country, widely available.

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

Thats reminds me of another reason why it's not for every pub, you have to know how to pour it from the Tap. Slowly, gently. let it settle then top it up. It can be a wait, but it's worth it.
