Re: Hua Hin police to get tough on motorbike helmets

I'm not including foreigners in my comments. I assume you'll can ride. However, I guess you haven't seen the Thai motorcyclists roaring up and Petchkasem road north of Soi 2. They greatly exceed the speed limit, weave in and out of traffic and present a danger to other drivers. Helmets don't compens...

Re: IHERB delivery

Recently they've changed from FedEx to DHL and the deliveries take about 2 to 3 weeks longer. Thought I was the only one but this makes more sense. Thanks for the update.

Re: Immigration officer said to be involved in kidnapping of tourist

I would have been screaming "Help" and fighting against them in the airport. Surely that would hav attracted attention. "Do not go gently into that good night."

Re: Hua Hin police to get tough on motorbike helmets

If you think it's bad now wait until more big bikes are on the road. I see that Honda, Kawasaki and Ducati have show rooms between Hua Hin and Cha Am.

"Could be against the law." It is or it isn't or is the law ambiguous?

Re: Large pro democracy demonstrations going on in Bangkok

I see they moved the March start back from 7am to 9 am! I guess this was because they were expecting a lot of students........who couldn’t get up that early! In the article cited, the protesters said they moved it to 9am to avoid blocking going to work traffic. All in all I think that they have bee...

Re: Treatment for arthritis/rheumatoid arthritis in HH?

If you're taking glucosamine and/or chondroitin make sure it's sulfate and NOT hydrochloride. Any other form won't be absorbed or effective. It can take at least 4 months before any cartilage growth can be measured. Enzymatic Therapy makes a powdered form, orange and unflavored, that is better absor...

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

MDMK, that doesn't answer the question. Perhaps I should have said what does one do with wet garbage at home before it gets taken away. What containers are used for it?
