Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

We were told the items, which are quite bulky would be delivered Friday.
I've just had the opposite from Lazada. Item was scheduled to be delivered Mon 18th through Thur 21st December.

It was delivered yesterday the 16th!! Delivery company is Kerry's Delivery Service...... never heard of them.

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

The reservoirs must be nearly full by now.
So full that they contributed to the floods in places as they had to open the sluices!!

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

I have never asked Bangkok Bank to activate my card. It is quite old and I've used it for local purchases as well as online. The first time I used it online, a message came up saying it was waiting authorisation from Bangkok Bank. It took around 2 mins if I remember correctly. Once authorised the sy...

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

Understand now. Sorry.
However, doesn't your ATM card act as a debit card. Mine does with Bangkok Bank.

Re: Charging for plastic bags in Thailand?

People, both Thais and Farangs, manage to shop at Makro with no trouble. That being the case, banning them completely shouldn't be a problem as people would adjust.

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

I've made two Lazada orders this week and I didn't know there was a drop down option. I just choose 'debit/credit card' and it's recognised by the card number.

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

Pol Gen Chakthip insisted every measure is intended to reduce road accidents and fatalities, pointing out that 80% of the cases are caused by disrespect for traffic laws and regulations.
Including the guys that are meant to enforce the law.......... the police!!

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

Driving schools are all well and good but without qualified driving instructors it'll not be much use. Even the police can't pass basic tests on driving regulations. The few police that appear to drive correctly are the ones in the 'highway patrol cars' and one of the reasons for that is that they a...

Re: Nescafe

We've been getting the old style 'Red Cup' from BKK but even they have run out now. I'm getting used to Moccona.
I noticed Makro have shelves of the 'new blend'. Doesn't seem to be moving!!

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

They had/have a points system. Initially it was the addition of points where a ban was awarded on reaching a number, and that changed later to an amount of points that were reduced, as described above. First introduced in 2002 and changed in 2007 .Didn't work then so why should it work now?

Re: Where can I buy a sewing machine?

Thanks for that, BB. I'll have a look in that shop. I've already looked on Lazada and they all seemed to be 'mini' and battery operated ones.

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

I've just ordered an item from Lazada and I noticed a difference between them and the UK. A couple of weeks ago, I ordered something from Argos for my daughter. The delivery advice came back as being delivered between 10:00 and 12:00 on Tuesday. The delivery advice back from Lazada was that it will ...
