Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin beach, jail time for offenders

I assume all these bad comments are written by the small majority of smokers who don't seem to mind the litter they leave and the discomfort they cause to others by blowing smoke into their faces or letting the wind blow it there. Well done Thailand bringing in a measure to help the large majority o...

Re: Golf Society seeking new members

After the festival ours guests get a 50% reduction on the green fee charged for non-members. That is normally about 2,800 (1,400 for our guests).

Re: Is International Mail Taking a Long Time Getting to HH?

It's a good job it wasn't important but the Thai post didn't know that. Post going the other way takes over a week, it seem...

Re: Does anyone know this dipstick (cheapskate)?

He is maybe a war hero or someone who has given a lot to society and for one reason or another is now short of friends and/or money, A cheapskate is someone that has money bu...

Re: How to make payment for True Vision subscription

I pay directly through my bank. True sends me a bill by text, takes the money a few days later and then sends a text saying thankyou. Works perfectly.

Re: T-Shirt printing

There is a shop in the basement of Market Village that will sow any pattern or badge onto a tee-shirt, hat, etc. I think there is also a similar shop in the basement of Blueport.

Why can't Farangs stop complaining?

Why can’t farangs stop complaining about Thailand and Thai people or just go home. Thailand is a wonderful country to live in otherwise so many farangs wouldn’t be living here. There is a massive feeling of freedom and relaxation here which you get no where in Europe. In Europe everyone’s daily life...
