Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

If a sedative was used, then it was used for good reason, based on a professional and calculated decision by those who are more qualified than we are to make such decisions. Totally agree, from how the rescue route was described and the dangers it entailed, and considering all 13 are now sat in hos...

Re: Grab Coming to Hua Hin

Used this service here in HH several times and it’s an absolute revelation. Living out towards Palm Hills, getting a tuk tuk to come early evening is a nightmare. Typical cost to the center of town is 400-500 bht. With Grab a driver is at my house within 10 mins and my cost this evening was 180 bht....

Re: Boy, 3, dies after school building fall

I agree B.B., it is completely inhuman to turn somebody away like that.

Problem here being that the law can be bent by those in positions of influence. Guess it’s the same story of third world, class divide and corruption.

Re: Boy, 3, dies after school building fall

Hand on heart, I can only say that this hospital here in HH has been great for myself and my 5 year old boy. We have both had surgery, the experience and treatment has been great. I don’t have insurance and didn’t feel ripped off in anyway. My wife was a nurse aid in bkk many moons ago. She told me ...

Re: Premier League 2018-2019

A better option than Arteta I think. He managed Valencia well on a shoestring budget so I guess he has experience on that front. Plus he’s a Europa League specialist. Since we are a long way off being a top 4 club at the moment his experience there will no doubt bode well. The main thing is that the...

Re: Bringing Golf Clubs into Thailand

Don't forget if you are classed as non UK resident you could claim the vat back. 20% How does that work then Mikey? I spend all year here in Thailand but will be going back to the UK this summer with the intention of buying a new set of irons. Are you saying I can claim the VAT back on my purchase?...

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

It's a great shame that people lose the moral idea that stealing is wrong, whether it's a penny or a million. The world nowadays has lost its way, in that most people now believe that it's not the good behaviour that the world needs, but only talk about culpability in terms of the amount of money o...

Re: Premier League 2017-2018

Glad and sad at the same time. No doubt that what Wenger has done for Arsenal football club has been special. The last 5/6 years have been hard to watch from a footballing perspective. Failures to sure up areas of the team, specifically the defense has been frustrating. As a coach Wenger has been pa...

Re: Why do many expats not bother to learn to read?

There is a teaching school in Bangkok where students go to watch thai teachers ‘act’ out a scene with props, visuals and repetition of words relative to the theme they are teaching. Students are advised not to try and speak thai but to take in all they see with the hope that after so many classroom ...

I joined the ranged membership and know a few other who did also. 30k bht for the year including 10 rounds of golf. The facilities there are as good as anywhere I’ve been in the world. Very well maintained all year round chipping and putting green. The rounds of golf cover the initial outlay so for ...

Re: Bangkok Hospital: hope you have health insurance or plenty of cash

Of the 2 surgeries we have had at BKK hospital in Hua Hin, both have cost much less than the estimated quote.

Both times we have been highly satisfied with the service - from surgery to post op care.
