Re: Plant nursery

Yes, a really nice guy, and if he hasn't got what you want, he will usually offer to get it for you. You can also ask him about his other nursery which is more or less behind the one which has been mentioned here. By the way, you can grow lemon grass from the lemon grass you buy at the markets here....

Re: 2 Bicycles - Free but in need of a little TLC

Hi Big Boy

If you still have them I would be very grateful if I could take them for my oldest two girls.

Re: Thailand Floods of 2018

I have a fantastic idea that could help to save the dams from bursting. Simply pump some of the water to Borfai Soi 6 so that I don't have to keep ordering water at 300 baht per truck. :twisted:

Re: MSG inThai food

I thought it had been declared well and truly safe! Scientists have been testing it for years and whilst they say too much won't be good for you and just as with any food, some have sensitivities towards it, for most, it's perfectly safe. Just a quick check on the net showed this to be the case and...

Re: Did you leave kids behind to come here?

I guess I must be a bit abnormal hahaha, because I have never even considered the idea of my parenting responsibilities ending when my kids reach a certain age. Perhaps I waited to long to have children, but for me, my kids will be my kids until the day I die. They really mean everything to me and t...

Re: Demolition of buildings on the railway road

The bit that is baffling me is they seem to be working on different sides of the track e.g. at the Soi 94 crossing. The probably haven't realized that yet. :D A bit off topic but ................. They have done a cracking job with the new sidewalk on the right hand side of the road, just passed th...

There's also a place in the railway road near the crazy track crossing/traffic circle, to the north of the crossing. :cheers:

Re: Thai Fresh Eggs

Yes, I need practice with hard boiled eggs. My daughter likes deviled eggs and by the time I get finished it's usually a disaster, mainly because the shell sticks to the white when peeling and breaks it apart. I've read somewhere either soak the hardboiled egg in cold water, or don't soak?....to ge...

Re: Where to buy Plant Seeds? (Fruits, herbs, vegetables)

Makro by soi 6 also almost always sells a few different herb plants such as rosemary, parsley, and etc. Seeds for all herbs and vegetables used in Thai food can be found here in Hua-Hin. I agree that Chatuchak has obviously got more to choose from, but it is a bit of a drag getting there. If you do ...

My two (leuk kung) daughters have two forenames, one western and one thai. They are both shown in their Thai and English passports.
Are both the Thai and Western forenames shown on their birth certificates?

Excellent, thanks for a great reply.
I'll check the place out.

Have you come across anywhere selling hydroponic stuff here too? Condensed clay pellets etc?
I'm no aware of any hydroponics supplier in the area, but I'm sure you could probably find what you are looking for on lazada.com

Re: Tops Supermarket in Hua Hin?

Well, Tops coming to town is no big deal for me, but seeing as though I am in the area almost daily, I will pop in every now and then to see if there's anything interest or any good deals. I eat farang type meals almost exclusively these days, all of which are prepared by me, but I find I don't real...

Re: Name difference problem renewing UK passport

So far those who have responded have changed family names usually due to marriage. In this case it is the forenames that are the issue. Thai passport with one Thai forename, UK passport with a western name and the Thai forename. Can a Thai have two forenames?Will one of the names have to be dropped...

Re: Where to buy Plant Seeds? (Fruits, herbs, vegetables)

If you head up the road that leads to the crazy railway crossing by G Supermarket you will find a shop on your left hand side of the road that sell some pet foods, but mostly things like fertilizers, pesticides, and etc. They also sell a good selection of seeds, mostly herbs and vegetables, but usua...

Re: Cancer - no longer the bogeyman?

Best of luck mate, and hoping you enjoy a speedy recovery. I know two guys here who were diagnosed with bladder cancer. The one had the tumor removed 5 years ago and has been fine ever since. The other had his tumor removed about 2 months ago and is due for his first check up next month.
