Re: Thai Navy to buy three Chinese submarines

Transparency is not a priority of the entities that are currently in charge in this country. Let's hope that if Beijing is ever unhappy with anything on a wider scale, then they don't just flip a switch at military HQ in China, and these subs sink. And before anyone gasps...the Thais don't have the...

Thailand needs these submarines because Botswana is planning to attack the kingdom within 2 yrs.

Re: Hua Hin water supply disruptions?

The water is very bad these days. I decided to change the water in my jacuzzi yesterday. As you can see from the picture, the water was very dirty. Full of silt and clay. I have experienced this before but not as bad as this time. Luckily the filters work wonders in the jacuzzi and I have two sets....

Re: Hua Hin water supply disruptions?

Water off in Soi 94 area at the moment. A couple of days ago a neighbour and a team of workers told me the water would be off for a couple of days starting on Wednesday which never happened. I was told again last night by a Thai that it would be off for a couple of days and this morning my tank isn...

Re: (Last) order on the pavement: Thailand

what other country provides such opportunities for humor? it's like living in cartoonland. my next business will be designing a t-shirt that has a photo of an ATM on it, with the caption: Baby, I'm your ATM, to be worn when looking for a Thai girlfriend, wife or bargirl. You're too late! It's alrea...

Re: (Last) order on the pavement: Thailand

I doubt this latest 'crackdown' on street food vendors will have any impact at all, the street food vendors will just disappear for one day and come back the next day. :banghead: There must be literally hundreds of thousands of street food vendors in Thailand.

Re: (Last) order on the pavement: Thailand

" they impede pedestrians, make a mess and attract vermin." Like it or not, this part is true " Thais and tourists will no longer be able to eat cheap, delicious food at rickety tables ". And this is a bunch of overly dramatic horse pucky as you can find all of those dishes mentioned in the article...

Re: Postal Delivery in Hua Hin

I've had lots of problems with getting local bills delivered, however, I've always received international deliveries either by them tossing a small one through my gate onto the driveway :shock:, ringing the doorbell and giving it directly to me, or leaving a card in my mailbox so that I could pick ...

Re: Postal Delivery in Hua Hin

Honestly, I feel sorry for the Thai Postal workers that have to ride around on a little scooter all day and deliver mail. It must be a really difficult job being outside in the heat riding around on a little scooter and lugging all that mail around. Imagine if the USPS workers in the U.S. had to wor...

Re: Postal Delivery in Hua Hin

Been to the Post Office a few times to query non-delivery of mail. Went upstairs and found a large cardboard box lying on the floor full of mail for our development. TOT bills, Tru Vision etc plus lots of personal letters. Usual response - shrug of the shoulders.. Came home today and found lots of ...

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

I am one of those in the 'other' camp. I like to walk around and interact with people. And shop. Except with my wife. That is on a totally different planet. While there is a trend towards online shopping here in Thailand, until more people get enough credit rating to actually qualify for a credit c...
