Re: City Hall joins flap over pigeon-feeding

I agree with the non feeding initiative. If there is food, they will regularly return and multiply (they tell all their mates!). I used to have a pigeon problem. Week by week there were more and more of them, settling on the roof and generally making a mess. They ate more of the dog's food than the ...

Re: Good Dentist HH/Panburi Location

On another thread, there were stories of Bangkok Hospital. Very expensive. However, a couple of Thai 'hisos' always went there. The wife was being treated for a virus ('flu). On her second visit, they took an xray and told her the xray was clear. Later in the week, she was in so much pain in the nig...

Re: Good Dentist HH/Panburi Location

Bubba1, are you some kind of snob. You remind me of Hiso Thais who eat the the most expensive restaurants (not necessarily good) just because they can and they want people to see that they can afford it. Cost does not by any stretch of the imagination guarantee quality just because it's expensive. V...

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

But of course there'll be no money to maintain the net which after a few storms will be rendered useless. IMO it's not needed anyway!

Re: Good Dentist HH/Panburi Location

I'd definitely recommend Nana's. Three of my family have used her including my 93 year old mother. Very good service and aftercare.

Re: Ear Wax Removal

Unfortunately many of the private hospitals in Thailand have become sloppy and thinking only of how they can invoice as much as possible. It is a shame if you ask me, but I guess a part of the problem is the insurance business. They are the ones driving the prices up. That's what hospitals do make ...

Re: Ear Wax Removal

I do know about Tik. That was a while ago. This is a different couple and was just last year. Strangely, it was the opposite way round so I guess that's HH Hospital - 1 BKK Hospital 1.

Incidentally the couple I'm referring to here are both Thai.

Re: Ear Wax Removal

Not all doctors come from government hospitals. An assumption that you will find to be untrue if you check. A friend's wife was very badly diagnosed at Bangkok Hospital and if it wasn't for a second opinion and treatment at Hua Hin Hospital, she may not be with us now. My son who was being treated a...

Seems to be only for Hong Kong citizens.
The service is now available for holders of Hong Kong and Chinese passports after Singaporeans have been using it since last year.

Re: Immigration 24 hour address registration clampdown starts in Phuket

It seems to me that the only time a foreigner has to report his address to immigration is if they own a condo as they are the housemaster responsible for reporting the stay of a foreigner. In all other cases, it's not the foreigner's responsibility but the housemaster, owner or possessor of the resi...

Re: After the cave rescue

This story was published a couple of months ago and this may sound insensitive but the two situations are only similar in that caves were involved. One was wet, one was dry. One involved a dangerous rescue, one didn't even find the boys to rescue. One was successful, one was unsuccessful. It does of...

Re: Cornwall and South Devon more European than English?

Used to be based in Devonport many years ago. Scrumpy was prevalent on both sides of the bridge. But so what. After a few pints you don't care where it came from!!
