Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

It is not a foreigner/Thai thing; That is worth a separate thread regarding how foreigners think of Thai people and the contempt that many show openly.

Very rude not to let people know they have not been successful and give feedback as to why.

Re: Possible leak from incoming water

If the pump is off and the leaking has stopped then guess which side of the circuit the leak is :roll: I take it by "leak" you mean the holding tank is dropping. If you shut off the holding tank and check your water meter is not spinning then you do not have a leak that side. If the pump does not ki...

Re: Buy a good Chair for computer

The back is fixed on mine but springy enough. My friend, who has back and hip problems is 130 kg and I cannot get him out of it when he comes over unless I put his beer out of reach then I can nip back in.

Re: Buy a good Chair for computer

I picked a new one up in Home Pro of all places after trying a few others. I told the guy in the chair section at the back left what I wanted it for ( Long hours at computer) and he pulled out a few for me to try. The one I settled on has adjustable height and a springy back. I am 5' 11" and thigh s...

Re: Rental in Hua Hin with social expat communities

We only manage a few rentals. Tropical hill 2 has a decent clubhouse and facilities; Reasonable rents as well. Most of the condos are very impersonal. My mum does chickyenet, book swap, ladies lunch club etc. I work otherwise I would have to do something drastic like play golf.

Mac person

Hi all 2 of my Macs are playing up. The iMac simply gives a code message for about half a second and turns off. It does not respond to any boot modes that I am familiar with. The macbook intermittently restarts itself for no given reason that I can fathom. I used to go to a guy on the railway line b...

Re: Thermometer

Well here you go for a start. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temperature_measurement Having studied the various ways of measure many years ago I have no idea if my smartphone has a sensor and I am not sticking it in my mouth, my ear or anywhere else.

Re: Buying doors for a property

I spoke with a developer to find out where he got his. The one in Pranburi he has had problems with splitting. I am not sure if it is the one you mean but clearly the wood is not correctly dried at some places. I rented a place where the doors stuck in wet season. Checked and they had not sealed the...

Re: Why did you settle in Hua Hin?

I spent the first 10 years in Thailand living on Koh Tao working in and around the diving industry. Great times but business was taking me more and more to Bangkok. A few days was fine but when the trips were 2 weeks I decided that I needed an alternative so started basing in Hua Hin whilst waiting ...

Re: Govt to increase alcohol tax again

Just realised it is the 6th march and went to the restaurant to check and panic buy. Still 45 Bt for a small Heineken or San Miguel light. The place is busy and gets daily deliveries so I guess it has had no impact yet so why are bars putting prices up? Visited the large wholesaler on Palau road las...

Re: Buying doors for a property

The one on Palau is good and has a range of sizes and styles in stock. They can also custom make. We also use one on the left hand side on the way to Cha am. Prices are similar. There is a lot of development going on so expect a long lead time if custom. Think I waited 2 weeks for the last lot. Orga...

I very rarely get bitten and, despite having had a bad bout of dengue, will not spray those chemical ones on my skin. I have a friend over that has over 60 bites per leg after travelling around for a few days. If I am travelling or starting to get bitten in HH I use a soap that a friends wife makes ...
