Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

This made me sit up and take notice back in October 2015 in Samut Sakhon. Thai's being ingenious as ever! https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/gmiNdMqKwm4f52Newlc2-0J_vG5XpKIHuS2sAxEJOJk0X8WJWcaOi0PWZn6KvdGVfLRoQgB74Mudl5AaET5y3IcSgzxFer7XQvMD6Oj6qY2gpcvVH0p_sj8ONU9lZBO0PY2_6-HhgmEG2-Q_K_pEKVqJRdPykuDy...

If it's that important, they'll ask/send it again.
They did for me! I ignored the first one and then got a reminder with a deadline of 5th December, after which my whole World would collapse if I didn't reply in time! :D

Re: Tax Residency

Yes, received one from Lloyds and to be honest I didn't really understand the forms to well, so just added a note that I paid tax in the UK on my pension and other income.

A pity that it doesnt run all the way to HH centre.
They provide a shuttle service to your accommodation, which I think can be free or up to 100 baht. I live about 30 minutes drive away SW of Hua Hin and they charge me 200 baht. A taxi charges 400-500.

Re: Sheraton Hua Hin - Holiday from Hell

I think the Novotel chain is good but never used them in the UK. At Swampy you get 24 hours from check in, not traditional hotel times, which makes great sense, if like me, you were waiting for a flight just past midnight and the other half needed to sleep through till morning, its a great option, P...

Re: The Pros & Cons of Using Aircon

I'm happy with a fan throughout the day pretty much all year around. Its the other half who sticks the aircon on and straight away I get too cold. At night, I prefer aircon to cool the room, but not blasted at me, as per my other half, because that sets me off sneezing. But 26 would be too warm for ...

Re: Thailand to England move

Probably not needed, but another thumbs up for Seven Seas from me, albeit UK-Thailand. The whole process was easy-peasy from start to finish and cost was very reasonable. They collected from my home in the UK and delivered weeks later to my then home in Thailand.

Re: Hua Hin's tallest building to open this month

It's no doubt got a Thai architect and it looks dated by about 30 years even before it's open. It is an awful monstrosity.

Once you get to Cha am heading south, you get to see some of the shoddiest 'designed' high rise stuff as you're likely to see anywhere.

Re: The Beer Thread

Jesus, is Strongbow really the best selling cider in the UK??? I'll stick to some premier brands - like anything apart from Strongbow - thanks! I've noticed these recently and I was under the impression that what is available here from Strongbow, is actually brewed in Thailand? I'd rather drink gnat...

Re: The scourge of Facebook

Well, with respect, I don't think it has mind numbed me in the least. I don't get any news from it! I don't even see the stuff you're talking about? Maybe I already blocked it?

I am aware of adsense and usually I can stop saturation of a certain ad, just doesn't seem to be working in this case.

Re: The scourge of Facebook

You've said before that you like watches - Facebook has obviously worked that out somehow because I don't know anybody else receiving watch adverts. Yes, I'm aware of that, what's different, is that fb throws a lot of different stuff in my direction, but I never click on any of it, if I want to loo...

Re: The scourge of Facebook

This has nothing to do with email. The Facebook platform is the spammer as it profits out of putting spam/fake posts/pollution in front of you every day. People are getting blinded by the bubbles they're creating for themselves with targeted Facebook "news" feeds only showing them things that they ...

No surprise really, Farcebook has become the pollution of the internet, a free-for-all for freeloaders, spammers, scammers and crooks.
But in fairness, the majority use it I guess for the way intended, to make it easier to keep in touch with friends and family and at that level it works well.
