Round Baking Tins

Lots of microwaves now double as conventional ovens and grills. The problem is that they require round cookware. Casserole dishes are not a problem but does anyone know if and where you can buy circular baking trays, roasting tins etc. Everywhere I've looked they are always rectangular designed for ...

Re: VIP - Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2018 - Top Secret DrumCorps

Excellent display. They do it so much better than us Brits can do. The same to be said for the US rifle drill exhibitions.

But we are good at some things..... The RN field gun competition for example.

Re: Scanning and photocopying

I've used the Kodak shop opposite Soi 80 but there are many shops around that can do it. Many of the 'internet shops' can do it. There's a good place on Soi 88 that has full facilities that the school kids use. Going from the food court heading west past Nanny's on the right hand side. There are man...

Re: Great service at immigration - transferring visa to new passport

I've just read the original notice from the Embassy (in the other thread). I understand now. It's a pro-forma that you fill in yourself.
How is that verification? Seems quite pointless.

2 years left on mine. Everything could change.

Re: Great service at immigration - transferring visa to new passport

The original story was that you had to get verification from the British Embassy. Is this the same letter that comes with the passport and 'They actually had the same letters to hand out at hua hin immigration' as that doesn't sound like a verification. I'm a little confused!

Re: Great service at immigration - transferring visa to new passport

I believe the need for the letter only applies if you get your new passport in Thailand. I renewed my British passport just over a year ago when I was temporarily working in Abu Dhabi and renewed the passport using the UAE visa agents nominated by the British Embassy. When I left Abu Dhabi I made s...

Re: Great service at immigration

Isn't this the service where you need a letter from the originating embassy to prove the passport is genuine? Surprised nobody has mentioned this. I found this on the net: Thai Immigration Office now requires Verification Letter issued by Home Country Embassies/Consulates to process Thai Visa trans...

Didn't somebody (maybe me :oops: ) post artists impressions of the new station?
That artist's impression was some time ago which shows the new station to be in Hua Hin. I was never aware of a plan to build it outside.

Re: The Chicken Bone Man

I've seen matlots in Plymouth trying to shock people by sifting through somebody's sick and eating the carrots, but this was totally different. That reminded me of a particular show of friendship when coming back after a run ashore in Guz. One matelot puked along with his denture. "I'm not putting ...

Re: MSG inThai food

I think the problem is the fact that msg as an additive is synthetic and carries all the problems relating to 'synthetic copies'. If it was in the form of a natural extract there wouldn't be a problem. It's found naturally in a large variety of foods. i.e. Ocean vegetables, especially kombu seaweed ...

Re: MSG inThai food

Well food additives in Oz have to be approved by the Food Authority. Don't know who did the tests. I was quite surprised that MSG appears naturally in some foods. Glutamic acid is naturally present in our bodies, and in many foods and food additives. MSG occurs naturally in many foods, such as tomat...
