Re: Monday night buffet at Dusit Thani

I would venture to guess what Migrant saw at the Dusit won't be permanent. Perhaps a low season offering? Once the Holidays get here and all the tourists I would bet they go back to full meat etc. Someone should check with them in a month. Pete :cheers: It might be a reflection of changing tastes P...

Re: Monday night buffet at Dusit Thani

I saw a poster for this Friday night steak buffet while out walking yesterday, I don't know if it's any good but you could get your money's worth out of the free flow drink if the food's not to your tastes. https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2004550899567375&id=378351572187324&set=a.9652576934967...

Re: Camera and photography thread

There is now another camera shop selling high end stuff on the top floor of Market Village but I haven't a clue what their pricing is like. I don't suppose physical shops anywhere can compete with online suppliers these days.

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

Would all you Euro, British Aussies and North Americans folks just step aside and allow our Chinese friends to go first Thank you.

Re: Cornwall and South Devon more European than English?

Back in the days when some pubs had a number plate above the bar saying "RU 18" to remind people about underage drinking, the Cornish version said "18 RE" !

Re: Cornwall and South Devon more European than English?

The Cornish language has been resurrected and is now officially recognised and it's a County very proud of it's differences to the rest of England and it's heritage. One of my colleagues here in Luxembourg drives around with a Kernow flag stuck on the back of his car which surprised me when I first...

Re: Europe travel

Thinking of renting a car vs train. I like to drive new areas plus the availability of seeing more. Any thoughts specific or otherwise are more than welcome!! Would go for a car every time - simply (as you say) for the fact you can see more and also "freedom of movement". There are options of "Rail...

Re: Smoking ex-pats

europtimiste-- History is against you--- there will be more and more restrictions as time goes by. It is also interesting that cannabis is increasingly replacing tobacco as the weed of choice by young people. I think as well, because younger generations have been brought up with smoking restriction...

Re: Which Mobile Phone?

Judging by my younger colleagues, the reason they make phones with non-replaceable batteries is because the average user breaks, looses or upgrades the things about three times a year.

Re: Electric Cars

I'm seeing Tesla's on the road everyday now here in Luxembourg and what is interesting is that you see them in the car parks of those investment bank type places, alongside all the Porsche's and Ferrari's and some of the most desirable cars around.

Re: Ex-US base 'not secret prison'

Steve G, do you know?
Yes, it's much bigger than a VOR transmitter, it's an old cold war era directional intelligence receiver from the early 70's:

Re: The bikers thread; trips, news, chat, all things motorcycle

So at 18 you are automatically mature!
I was listening to an article on a UK radio station over the internet last week and they said that hospital A & E admissions for over 50's men had gone up 60% due to older people getting into motorbikes!

Re: Electric Cars

There are plenty of electric cars being used as taxi's here in Europe, including those Byd E6's and they seem to work fine.
