Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

No, I was asking if it was particular to Thailand? If it happens everywhere, I think it is disgusting, and I'm glad I personally never sank that low. Yes, I too thought that you were asking in relation to Thailand. The example that you have quoted appears to be specific to some Farang business owne...

Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

To me, the simple answer to that is: if the potential employer is too ignorant to make a simple phone call or text, then they have done you a favour, because you are better off not working for them!

Re: Possible leak from incoming water

Sorry mate, but it is both illegal and very bad practice to have a pump with the suction connected directly to the mains supply. The supply should ALWAYS be via some form of settling tank. You're probably right but I can show you many instances where the pump is suctioned directly to the main suppl...

Sorry mate, but it is both illegal and very ...

Re: The Beer Thread

I do not drink beer, never have, but I am not a wowser and did drink spirits for many years. However, I have been told many times that formaldehyde is used as a preservative in some beers, and, depending on the concentration, is to blame for "hangovers". J.J.B. what do you say? https://www.choice.co...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

The Thai Website is up again. The line of low pressure cells extending all the way from India has moved south over Thailand. There is an active low pressure cell over the southern tip of Cambodia, which is probably what you are seeing Pete.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

Heavy rain floods parts of Bangkok, more to come
The heavy rain yesterday must have washed away the Thai Met Dept. Website! It is a hot summers day in Bangkok with just a few fluffy clouds floating about.
