Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

It's easy to check the likely cause (tofu), and then the remedies. Soybean products, notably the unfermented variants like tofus, are goitrogenic foods. There are many others, such as cassava, cabbage, kahle, mustard leaf, etc. that are widely used in Thai cuisine, and thus contribute to the problem...

Snowy made a brief appearance in our local 7-11 - and then was gone.
It's available in the 7-11 opposite of the Market Village, and also under the Rocco condo (~opposite of BKK Hospital). In the latter shop there was another (new to me) can that I will try tonight.

Re: Four year smart visas for top earning expats to launch next month

Clearly, the Smart visas are targeting a very small group, and worth to go for. Only that have an effective deal breaker for small private companies, just like the O-X visa for retirees.
