Re: Table lamp fittings

I think I know the dusty old shop in town that should stock these but I hesitate to try to guide you there as I’m like Stevie Wonder in a snowstorm with directions. I’m sure other people will provide the info you need in the next day or so but if not I will drive there in next couple of days and pos...

Praise for HH Police

I had pest control in to the house to do their monthly service and immediately after they’d left I realised my iPhone was missing. I tracked it using the FindMyPhone app (it was 17km away in a house one of them was staying at), the manager implored the obvious culprit (new kid who’d just started wit...

Door shop location

Back in March last year NOKYAI mentioned a door shop on the Pala u road. Does anyone’s know the name of it? I’m hoping I'll have a better chance of finding it using google maps as I'm unfamiliar with that area of Hua Hin and, based on my uselessness at following directions, I suspect I won’t find it...

Re: Dash Cam Can Really Save You Cash Cam

Bluesky, big thanks! Really good of you. Your set-up looks like it'd work well for me so I’ll order the bracket and give it a go.

Re: Dash Cam Can Really Save You Cash Cam

Thanks all for suggestions so far.
FWIW, it’s an hp f310 (@B8,790) so probably not the cheapest unit and I’d prefer not to bin it.

Dashcam keeps falling off windscreen...

I’m thinking that the UV film Honda put on my HRV probably isn’t a suitable surface for the suction thingie, as it falls off every bloody day, especially in the heat. I’ve cleaned the screen with rubbing alcohol, moved it around, and it still falls off. How do you keep your dashcam stuck on the wind...

Re: NHS treatment back in the UK if resident in HH?

Probably not that relevant to this thread at this point p - or much comfort to us expats from the UK when we can’t get the NHS benefits for hutch we've paid our NI contributions - but just for some context I do think it's a bit of a red herring when your typical Daily Mail/Sun/Telegraph reader bangs...

Re: Desiccant sachets for food?

Thank you mwbrown, got them in Daiso today and they’re exactly what I was after. I've used these ones before and found that a couple of them tucked in a lock'n'seal box definitely helped to keep biscuits or crackers from going soft for the couple of weeks or so until I finished the packet. 😊

Desiccant sachets for food?

I'm having to fly back to the UK quite a bit right now, and making the most of the generous 70 kilos baggage allowance I might as well pad out my cases with biscuits and shedloads of other stuff from Blighty that I can’t get here (or's silly money). So I'm trying to find food-safe desiccant sachets ...

Re: The Digital Surgery

Just wanted to add this - not sure if it’s bonkers advice or if it might actually work, but I’ll report back here with the result if/when I need to try it: Because I don’t print frequently, I abandoned my old printer with its (for me) false-economy bulk ink supply and this week I bought a new printe...

It’s been putting on a stunning show tonight hasn’t it? I’m actually going to utter that overused word - 'awesome!'. And good to hear it might bring us good luck too 😊

Re: Where can I get spare water tank lids?

Just for closure I’d like to say thanks all, especially BlueSky, and to StevePIraq for the link - hoping to get a reply to my email, and if no joy will cobble something together following the other suggestions.

Re: Where can I get spare water tank lids?

Thanks for your replies, much appreciated. Following Bluesky's suggestion I’ve been to Big Kiang today but as they don’t stock my ('Magma' brand) tanks they 'Cannot!'' order the lids for them, so I'll measure up and see if any of the ones they can get would work - even if not a perfect fit, with som...

Where can I get spare water tank lids?

Some fiend has made off with the tops of my two water tanks, grrrr. I tried buying replacements in Global, HomePro and Thaiwatsadu but the staff all looked at me as if I was I was asking them for a wrap of smack (I can’t believe they don't stock spare lids but there you go) and I’ve also enquired at...
