Re: Understanding Thai society and behaviour

Sad to say I think this study by Khun Suntaree is flawed.
Nowhere could I see any mention of FOOD. Everyone who has spent time with Thais soon realizes that food is the foundation to all of Thai culture.

Re: The Home Air-Conditioner Thread

Nereus Based on this chart a unit around 12,000 btu would be adequate for our living space. Last local installer was quoting 24,000btu for this same room based on floor area calculations only. Hell of a lot of difference eh? Still be keen to hear of how this particular chart stacks up in comparison ...

Make sure you watch them with their load volumes as sure as hell they will try ripping you off. The driver said that prices start at about B 600 per load o...

Re: Tourists warned of jellyfish on Trang, Krabi beaches

wow Pete,
based on those concentrations of jelly fish per square metre a swimmer would have no chance but to be stung you would think.
Always amazes me as to why we never hear of local fishermen being seriously stung/killed by these critters when you see so many of them in the water with their nets.

Re: Blue marron

Honestly I cannot see what all the fuss is about with marron, or yabbies for that matter. Give me a good old Mandurah blue swimmer crab plus a decent cold beer and I would be more than happy any day.
