Re: Refrigerator repair shop?

It's definitely worth a try. Clear all the frost and ice you find in the freezer compartment once you have emptied it.

Re: Refrigerator repair shop?

Hi Sally, it sounds as though the air feed from the freezer to the fridge is blocked (build up of ice ?). I had this problem a few years ago, and fixed it myself simply by defrosting the freezer. Hope this helps.

Re: ATM free of fees in Hua Hin?

Hi Taff.... I've recently got a Halifax credit card purely for the purposes of the no charges abroad from Halifax. It's not labelled as Halifax "One" so not sure if it's the same as yours. My understanding is that the ATM/bank may charge a fee for withdrawing cash. May I ask if you had a favourable ...

Visiting hua hin next year. What is the situation regarding ecigs? I use a tank based system, with liquid refills. Are ecigs and liquids available to buy in hua hin and/or Bangkok, chiang mai etc. Are they recognised ? Am I likely to get in trouble vaping in a bar, restaurant or public transport? Th...

Real ale in Hua Hin

Don't laugh.

Any decent draught beers at a reasonable price in Hua Hin? Totally understand that it's very unlikely to find anything but bottled lager. But still, any good draught beers (or lagers) around?

My main hobby is cooking BIR (British Indian Restaurant) curries, which I've been doing for a couple of years now. Also do the traditional Indian, to a lesser degree.

So, are there any busy and friendly bars where you can feel at ease? Thinking of just chilling with a few beers, chatting to locals etc.
