Re: Thailand Plans Joint Arms Factory With China

That's great, the world needs more armaments. I seem to recall that it was part of the deal with buying Chinese subs. I've heard that Kenya is planning an attack on Thailand so it's a good thing that there will be a stronger defence system in place.

Re: Mold in buildings in Thailand

I use a spray bottle with 500 liters of water and about a tablespoon of bleach. Either that's: 1) A homeopathic remedy, or 2) You're a world champion power lifter, or 3) You meant milliliters. :D The correct answer is 3. :( After a lifetime of thinking in ounces I still haven't mastered the table o...

Re: Mold in buildings in Thailand

I use a spray bottle with 500 liters of water and about a tablespoon of bleach. Let it sit until the mold is gone, rinse with clear water and dry. Tea Tree oil will do the same thing but it's more expensive. I get it on the shower walls and glass shower door.

Re: International Fleet Review 2017 - Pattaya

Thai news talked about how many millions of Baht it would bring to Pattaya. I'm sure the ladies will do well.

Re: Thais rank low again at English

If you're wealthy you can always pay someone else to do everything for you. I did have a good language experience at Tesco-Lotus today; I was holding 3 packages of meats and struggling to fill a 4th with ground pork when a lovely Thai woman came up to me, said, "Let me help.", took the bag from my h...

Re: Liver Tonic

MLS is correct; Milk Thistle is a liver cleanser and detoxifier. Check iherb.com. They ship to Thailand from the U.S. I've been dealing with them for years. It generally takes about 2 weeks to receive a package. They have discount prices and the shipping is via DHL/Thai post. They also have articles...

Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

hhfarang, ditto here, it's the humidity. I lived in Florida for 19 yrs. and never got used to it there either but the desert in New Mexico and Arizona was fine. What I really miss are seasons. Well, the list is longer than that but I don't want to start a whine.

Re: The Digital Surgery

When you're not going to use the printer for, let's say, a week, take out the printer cartridges, wrap them in plastic wrap and put them in a sealed plastic bag. This will keep them form drying out. The last time I had my printer in for service the repairman told me to use it daily to keep it from d...

Re: House location now required by visa extension

I've always had to provide a map to my house. The difficult part is where to start the map. Lincoln, Nebraska, Adelaide, South Australia? Eventually I settled on Klong Rd. and that seemed acceptable. But really the whole thing is silly. If they want to find you they'll look up your address on google...
