Hua Hin address map?

Does anyone know if there is somewhere a map explaining the Hua Hin addresses? I know in the address f.ex: 114/34 the 114 is the block number and the 34 is the house/shop/apartment number. However, without some sort of orientation help or other systematic guideline all addresses in HH are found by t...

Re: Smart House Valley

I'd be quite cautious of any place offering the old 30 + 30 + 30 years type of scam of ownership.
Also I would check does one pay electricity and water directly to departments concerned or to housing community.

Re: Fish and Chips

One visited with one's friends May's Kitchen the other night. Both Vindaloo and F&C were really, really good. One means really good! The price was better than good, staff very friendly and the place nice and clean.

One shall visit there soon again.

Seat cushion covers

After having successfully completed the repair of the orphanage furniture, we are now going to renew the seat cushion covers for the repaired chairs.

Does anyone have an idea where to have these cushions made?

Thank you for your suggestions.

Re: Long clamps

Thank you, gentlemen, for your kind offers, and my apologies for the late reply. We now are coping by using ratchet belts instead of F-clamps. The job seems to grow while we do it, and new repairs appear, so we'll be busy for some while now.

But, as said, we are coping.

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

Four things are inevitable:

1. Death.
2. Taxes.
3. The increase in taxes, including death tax.
4. Complaints about taxes and their increase, but much fewer complaints about death.

Long clamps

We are repairing furniture at an orphanage and are in need of long clamps, parallel or f-types or some such arrangement with jaw width more than 50 cm. Has anyone seen anywhere such clamps. We would like to rent/borrow but are prepared also to buy. Your advise is appreciated. http://i68.tinypic.com/...

Re: Was Tinto on Soi 94 ever open for business?

I visited Tinto some days ago before the announcement of termination. Lovely Spanish tapas and some excellent wine.
Based on that solitary visit I feel we have lost much in Tinto closing.

Re: Does being an Expat make you miserable?

Most of the farang complaints are of matters that actually contribute to the fact that we are in Thailand. If everything was well-oiled and worked like clockwork, if everything was clean and well-ordered like the barracks, Thailand would be Switzerland or Singapore. We would neither like it nor coul...
