Re: Songkran 2017

I never stayed out too late, but up until I left Binta there was no trouble at all, and in my opinion, it was a lot quieter all over Hua-Hin compared to past years.

Good fun all day :cheers:

Re: Tourist shamed for refusing to take 'smelly' feet off seat

Hahahaha, sometimes Thai people are just way too polite. :lach: If it were me, I would have told her that her feet stink, and that sometimes it is a good idea to shower, and I would politely have asked her to get her feet away from me. Had she not obliged, I would simply have convinced her with my c...

Re: New labels and tax to tackle Thailand's junk food problem

People have been eating and drinking salty and sugary snacks and drinks since Jesus was a boy, and obesity was not an issue. I'm sure I have way too much salt in my food, and I have never made any attempt to restrict sugar intake, but yet I am not obese, or even overweight. As far as I'm concerned, ...

Re: Interfering Farangs

I am probably one of the calmest and most laid back expats in Thailand, but in your case mate, the interfering idiots would have been cut down in no time at all. I have no time for the fools who try to defend any and all Thais just because they are Thai. Having said that, I can't figure out why an A...

Re: Judo club and gym club in HH ?

I am also not aware of any judo club in Hua-Hin. If you think your kid may enjoy karate, then I would definitely recommend getting in touch with sensei John from the Wado Karate Club referenced in the above post. My eldest daughter has been attending for nearly five years now and she still loves goi...

Re: Explosion at Bor Fai?

Yes Big Boy, it was a transformer box about 200 meters up the road from my home. It's the first time I've heard this one going boom, but one which is a bit closer to our place usually bangs about once a month or so, apparently because of ants nesting in it. Usually, the power comes back on almost im...

Re: Moving in before paying for house - your thoughts?

I'm not sure how this whole business works, but when Mrs T and I bought our land I set very clear and simple rules: Mrs. T and I would go draw the money out at the bank, and hand it over to the seller at the land office once we had the chanote and etc. in our hands.
