Re: Child Protection in Hua Hin

I agree, if the request had been for the nearest massage shop would it have generated the same response?

Re: CR2025 car keyfob batteries

A CR2025 is a very standard battery for desk top computers along with CR2032, they keep the clock functioning when the PC is powered down, they are found on the motherboard. You should be able to get a quality battery from any PC repairer or accessory shop, rather than a cheap generic in bargain sho...

Re: Bangkok Bank Visa Debit

In Australia we have had the chip cards for many years, signature verification has not been used for almost as long. Approximately 2 years ago "Tap and Go" was introduced where all that was required for purchases up to A$100 was to wave your card over the top of the shop terminal, over A$100 then th...

Re: Police corruption, drug tested in Hua Hin

After watching recent news footage from the home of democracy, the USA and the way police treat you for a possible, simple traffic violation, I think I would rather try my luck in Thailand.

Re: Hua Hin. Daily Photo

I am aware of the JPEG and that it is "lossy" compression which is variable to enable the file size to be reduced with the appropriate loss of quality. No, I did not mean PNG.

Re: Hua Hin. Daily Photo

I wish we would be there to enjoy what looks to be a fabulous meal. We will be returning to Hua Hin in 4 weeks time, maybe the menu will be repeated while we are there.

This is a photo I took a couple of years ago from the jetty in Hua Hin, one of many showing the sunrise over the Gulf of Thailand.
