Re: Pies in Hua Hin

There is a Canadian specialty, more a Quebec specialty--Tourtiere, a flat pork pie. It is traditionally eaten at a special meal, Reveillon (Wake up) eaten when you get home from Midnight Mass on Christmas night. Trust the French to think of a meal to eat at 2am.

Re: Opening a bank account which bank?

Many Thai people just cant be bothered to do the work for which they are paid and the unreasonable demands are just part of a way to avoid work. I have 2 policies. Always go early in the morning and I take with me a Thai lady friend who is useless but has a warm friendly manner.
