Re: Where to buy 12 Volt Garden Lights in Thailand

If you don't mind buying out of China I suggest that you look at https://www.aliexpress.com. This is the retail shopping section of AliBaba, sellers sell by individual items.

Re: The Peril of Bar or Restaurant Ownership

Thank you stumorelli. I personally am not contemplating "Bar Ownership" and your scenario is pretty much as I had imagined but was wondering in general terms the costs associated. One of my favorite past-times when indulging at a venue not visited before, is to review the whole scene and decide what...

Re: The Peril of Bar or Restaurant Ownership

So what does it cost to purchase the lease of a bar, monthly rent and other expenses regarding staff and services? What kind of returns per month can be expected with a few farang regulars?

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. I had already undertaken a Google search for "JPEG to PDF Conversion" and there was a great number of listing. As I mentione...

Re: Hua Hin. Daily Photo

I wasn't aware of the differences between JPEG and PDF images. From what I have been able to ascertain from my first attempted research is that PDF format requires less storage space and the ability to get a reasonable quality print, even if it is taken from a web site. My question is, by converting...
