Re: Discount for new property projects

If they do not have any more to show than what you say, you need a very big discount. You cannot see any examples of what you will get, you cannot see if they are reliable about fulfilling their promises, you cannot see how long it will take to receive what you are asking for, you cannot see who you...

Re: Household Drains Backing Up

I made one here one time by just drilling small holes in a PVC pipe. We bought a couple lengths of that perforated drainfield pipe here in Hua ...

Re: Any vegetarian restaurants in Hua Hin?

I lived 7 years in an off grid counter culture community on the the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Most who where there considered themselves strict vegetarians.

Re: Hotel key card leads to identity of foreigner washed up on Hua Hin beach

handdrummer » Sat May 12, 2018 4:52 pm Maybe there could be a separate column for ranting and as soon as the exchanges went off topic they would be relegated to the "rants" column. Good idea.!

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

At one time I lived with a bank teller who was accurate enuf to balance almost every day. So accurate they made her the vault teller.

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