Re: Windows 10 Developments

My advice is still the same, don't upgrade your version of Windows just because you can, especially if you have a perfectly fine working system at the moment, until the first "stable" version comes out with fixes and patches, usually known as SP1 (Service Pack 1), sit on the sidelines and watch eve...

Re: Need a new kitchen

Thanks for the tips and information, especially on the need to properly seal granite countertops. I'm wondering, besides granite, what are the other choices for countertops that are available here in Thailand ? In Alaska, we had a high end home that had a "Corian" countertop that we enjoyed very muc...

Re: Need a new kitchen

I am planning to completely redo my kitchen, new cupboards, counters, sink, stove, faucets, etc. I want to engage a company to come take measurements and develop a design proposal, and then to accomplish the entire upgrade. I want to modernize my kitchen. I've briefly looked at Boontavorn, hafelle, ...

Re: Excel Spreadsheet Genius Required

I consider myself fairly advanced with Excel, and know how to use and / or figure out the formulas. Would you like to get together so I can take a look at the issue ? No money required :)

Re: What's the current beach situation for short term tourists?

Go to soi 75/1, walk down to the beach and you'll find a nice, but slightly expensive restaurant that also rents beach recliners and umbrellas. Very nice area, just slightly south of Market Village. Penns Guest House offers very nice, comfortable cheap rooms just 2 minutes walk from the beach in thi...

Re: Private Thai Language Lessons

I attend classes at Sirada, just finished year 2 and starting year 3. I can read and write Thai fluently, although I mis-spell Thai words frequently, still, due to the multiple consonants and other anomalies in the written Thai language. I attend classes twice a week, 2 hours each day, cost is 3,10...

Re: Private Thai Language Lessons

My daughter is on an ED visa and is with Sirada. Cannot fault the school. However, I think you'll find that lessons are now 4 days X 2 hours to comply with immigration rules of 400 hours in the year recently updated from 200 hours. Maybe you're not on an ED visa and therefore do not need to comply ...

Over the last two days, after reading this thread about how good the fish and chips are at the "bar Tender", my wife and I have searched for this retuarant. First at night, then today during daylight. Of course we could not find it anywhere on soi 94. This evening, I finally realized the posts I was...

Re: Proof of funds for visa extension - what formats?

My first year, I used the bank deposit method. I arrived at immigration with the signed letter from Bangkok Bank, and a copy of my bank statement. Unfortunately, the bank letter stated I had 860,000 baht while my statement showed I had 1,250,000 baht. Immigration sent me back to the bank to get a ne...

Re: Where To Buy a Dry Erase Board.

The Stationary store mentioned above, near the Esso station, has now moved, across the street and about 200 meters north. This is one of my favorite stores, but they did not have much of a selection of whiteboards when I checked. Thai Watsadu has a large selection of sizes, and both magnetic and reg...

Re: Where To Buy a Dry Erase Board.

I shopped all over town for one, 2 years ago. Ended up buying at Thai Watsadu, past the airport on the way to Cha Am. Good selection of sizes, competitive price. No matter where you buy, be sure to examine for scratches and defects, they are fragile if not handled properly.
