Re: Registering a Marriage with The British Embassy

I got married in Cha Am back in 2010 and it was relatively easy to get the local Thai marriage certificate attested at the British Embassy in Bangkok, but of course in the intervening years they may have stopped providing this service. At the time I was working in the UAE and needed the attested cer...

Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

Checked today, sunday 1:30 pm Market Village to Cha-Am. 410 Baht, reported by the App. I took a ride on the bus. I'm sure a little old lady taxi would not be cheaper than 400 either for Cha-Am proper. Not an outrageous price. Agreed, a normal taxi would be 500 Baht, so the price is reasonable compa...

Re: Electric Cars

What about pick up trucks which are used for hauling loads, and 4WD SUV's that are used off road. Do current electric engines have enough torque for these jobs, and does any major manufacturer have this type of electric vehicle in the planning? I guess the same question could be asked concerning pa...

Re: Electric Cars

I just saw a show the other night showing that the Tesla, Nissan, Toyota are get 220-260km range in Europe, in pretty aggressive city and highway driving. This is not the pick-up, 4WD I was talking about above, just your normal electric sedans. Pete :cheers: The Jaguar iPace is a 4WD SUV that is cl...

Philip, you’re 96 years old, you’ve just had a hip operation, so please act your age and take off that silly camouflage and get yourself ready for the wedding.

We are still looking - till now not successful.

We are ready to start with planings... construction will start after rainseason 2021
You certainly like to plan well in advance - in 3.1/2 years some of the people doing business now might not be around towards the end of 2021

Re: Thailand's imported wine crackdown

I bought a 1.5l bottle of Australian red called Laughing Bird from Makro 2 days ago, it was a mixture of Cabernet and Merlot grapes and whilst not the best wine I have ever had, not bad for 469 Baht

Re: Locations that serve a "good" Amercian / English breakfast.

Have you asked them? Yes, they make their own. Much tastier than a Cumberland or any of the others I've found in Hua Hin. Remember, I'm American, British sausages don't work for me. What's the difference between US and UK sausages? Surely we're not talking about the frankfurters they use in hotdogs...

Re: Locations that serve a "good" Amercian / English breakfast.

These are the best sausages (he says modestly) you can get in Hua Hin, but they’re my home made ones and not for sale.

Sorry, :offtopic:

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

I actually don't know a single Farang who actually uses the coins when shopping, which is why they will see it pointless handing them over with our change. You don't know me, but I use them when shopping, as like getting rid of them, along with not wanting any more. Use to just throw them on the gr...
