Re: The ever-improving state of Hua Hin's roads

Thai logic? At the end of the financial year, every government department in the UK that hasn't already overspent does the same. Paperclip stocks soar. That used to be the case in the Govt. Department I worked for but it changed when we gained agency status. Likewise, it used to be the case in the ...

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

What package are you on BB? I can't tell you too much about mine, but it has the premier football obviously and various other English programmes and some Thai stuff that Pam likes, although she often picks up Korean stuff via youtube. It seems odd you can't pay via the machine so I guess yours is a ...

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

I can't help you BB, but once a month, just before the 1st, I wander into True at Bluport and wait by their payment machines, someone comes over, I show them my account number from my phone, that's keyed into the machine, the bill amount comes up - same figure each month - and I pay my bill by card,...

Re: The Digital Surgery

There has been a massive windows update, mine was sorted yesterday. However, now I cant paste photos from my host gallery into a post. I have been doing this for ages, a simple cut and paste, use the appropriate setting (scenic view) and its done. But now nothing happens when I press the paste butto...

Re: Iceland in Villa Market

We're going off topic here, but wasn't there a lot of publicity a couple of years ago about some sort of shrimp being transported from Thailand to Scotland (or may have been the other way around) for packaging? That's what Iceland did, quite a bit of their stuff came to Thailand fir processing and ...

Re: Iceland in Villa Market

Interesting that it was caught in the North East Atlantic area and produced and packed in China. Traveled half way around the world to be packed in China. Yes, globalisation is the biggest polluter of the globe. There was a great reality TV show that followed several Iceland staff going abut their ...

Re: Iceland in Villa Market

Well I popped into VM by the San Paulo hospital today and came away a very happy bunny, I noticed that the Iceland freezer had recently been restocked and a new item caught my eye - frozen North Atlantic Mackerel. Now I would prefer that this be caught locally off of St. Ives and then cooked up in o...

Re: Zab Wer Restaurant

I don't know where this place is. I was thinking of another. In the above posts the address of this restaurant is given as 102 and 112. Which is it? If you live on 112 then don't know how you could possibly not know where this place is! Not really sure I understand that? But I turn right just past ...

Re: Thai Food Around the World

I think you also have to differentiate between the large chains that are now involved in Thai restaurants in the UK, that are multi-million pound businesses and the one-off typical high street venue, which just like curry houses, will be a mix of good or bad. I ate twice at one of the large chains -...

Re: Thai Food Around the World

BB, I actually knew a female Thai chef who came to work in London before the UK tightened up on foreign workers. She wasn't part of my normal circle of friends and we met via a mutual friend. She worked in the then well known Blue Elephant Thai restaurant in West London (now closed), which I have ea...

Re: Thai Food Around the World

The chefs Not a term I've heard very often. Thai chefs is something you may see on a TV show. Thai cooks usually learned their trade from their parents, which many ex-bar girls didn't get the opportunity to do. The London pubs with Thai food was an entrepreneurial venture by a clever Thai. He would...
