Re: Golf Society seeking new members

The great things about golf societies is that they can go to a club and say--We will bring 24 golfers to your course every Tuesday for the next 12 months, now give us a price for the 1200 green fees. They have great bargaining power.This works so well in Pattaya.

Re: Back in the UK after 14 years

I think that this thread is very interesting--I knew 3 couples here who have relocated back to the UK, 2 out 3 were VERY discontented here for the last year or two--they upped and left, no real farewells and replied to emails with single sentence answers. Good to get these opinions.

Re: Men and their mistresses

Lets think about the wife in her fifties who has NO interest in sex anymore. Het husband, on the other hand, is still in need of a little. Which is preferable--- for him to visit a mia noi every Tuesday evening or go trolling the bars with his friends.

Re: Thai ex-PM fails to show for verdict

Talking to some Thai ladies today. Thai people are not very open about their feelings about Thai politics with farangs. They all regard her as a heroic figure and are glad that she is "safe"

Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

Are you suggesting that this is a phenomenon particular to Thailand and particular to Farang employer-Thai candidates. Sadly this is very general everywhere.

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. Many HHAD posters are only concerned about how their social life will be affected. So I am re-opening this "polite" tread. No editorializing, just the open/closed facts. I unders...
