Call it Dogfish if you like, it's still shark.
I stand corrected. I've never thought of it as a shark. I was also surprised to find there are 440 species of shark, the smooth dogfish being one of them.

Re: Drivers License Dec. 7 2016

Residence letter from immigration (1 for car and 1 for bike) at 500 baht a pop. For that you need a photo, copies of your passport (ID page, latest stamp, departure card, address notification slip), all those copies again for Transport office (2 x if for 2 licences), copy of front and back of your ...

Re: Fish and Chips

But I'm a Londoner, so for me, nothing beats Rock (Huss or Rock Salmon) as the fish for fish and chips. That's dogfish! I'm from Hull which used to be very big on fish. My mother (the fish connoisseur) will not eat cod. She worked at 'Birds Eye' for many years and she says that cod is one of the mo...

I was just in Makro in Pranburi, after reading this thread. No sign of any cod there, unfortunately. Plenty of pangasius though. Yuch!!!
I don't think you'll find anything like the range of produce in Pranburi than you will at HH.

Re: 5,000 potential 'Grenfell Towers' in Bangkok

The earlier story claimed 'over 10,000 structures in Bangkok requiring fire safety inspections' (over 23 mtrs high) with 5,000 having not been inspected. Now they say 2,810 higher than 23 mtrs in total.

Who does the counting?

Re: 5,000 potential 'Grenfell Towers' in Bangkok

Thailand has around 2,000 licensed building inspectors in the form of engineers and architects, plus 200-300 licensed inspection companies that can cover all buildings. I would guess that some of those building inspectors give out certificates of health for a fee!! That works with VAT men in the UK...

Great post HHFarang. Ok, it wasn't the place for you but the points you make are quite valid.

Re: Why can't Farangs stop complaining?

Thailand is safer than Switzerland if motor bikes are excluded from the statistics ). Things we farangs see happening on the road sometimes seem very strange to us. That doesn’t mean however that these are always wrong or dangerous. Thai’s have a lot more common sense than Farangs give them credit ...

That was a couple of years ago. He's done a few tours but he's been caught out on some of his illusions. Seems to have been reduced to selling magic tricks on his website. However, a good 'showman'
