Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

I've just watched this documentary broadcast on Australian TV. Very interesting and factual for a change. Listening to the divers, it did show me that Elon Musk's solution really didn't have a cat in hell's chance of working.

Re: Treatment For Farangs At Hua Hin Hospital

Diabetes is forever, better to get it free and keep it that way. I don't want diabetes at any price!! I'm being flippant. I concur with most others in regard to the hospital. They provide an excellent service for most things....... but not skin disorders, moles, blemishes etc. There are some good s...

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

Certainly looks like a good site. I often wonder whether suppliers sign up to more than one marketing network. i.e. Bang Good and Lazada. On a quick scan I did see a couple of items which were identical to ones offered on Lazada. I was impressed that they gave a shipping/delivery period. Something t...

You can get ginger nuts at Villa
And at Gourmet Market.
Thanks for that. 2 places I don't regularly visit. But the draw of ginger nuts compels me to check them out.

Re: Tops Supermarket in Hua Hin?

I'll just answer your post, BB, then I'll leave it. Regarding the biscuits, he's made a couple of bad decisions on his produce. The biscuits were imported by him on his shared container. This was a case where he could have bought locally. He did tell me once that he doesn't always get to choose what...

Re: What are the TV service options in Hua Hin.

I was surprised with 3BB. When I upgraded to fibre, they had to drag a cable almost half a kilometre and there was no charge and no charge for the router either. Maybe I was 'special' ...... lol

Re: Tops Supermarket in Hua Hin?

Talking of farang goods, I just bought 'ginger nuts' at Nanny's. Never seen them here before and always had to wait for my visitors to bring me a few packets.

Re: The Beer Thread

Look up the top ales as published by CAMRA. I'm sure you'll recognise some of them. The difference being they are all real ales as opposed to lager. The list from RateBeer are mostly lagers.

Re: Tops Supermarket in Hua Hin?

There's parking at the other end (back entrance) of Power Buy. Plus 'on the road' parking at the opposite side of 88. I'm sure that will add up to more than Villa has nearby.

The last couple of Buddha days had the MIB warning the Mom and Pop shops nearby. And they did do some checks on the day.

Re: Has Hua Hin Traffic Reached Saturation Point?

The narrow lane on the nearside was originally intended as a cycle lane. As the roads get resurfaced they are being done away with as you'll see on the newer parts of Petchakasem. The ones that still exist have a cycle logo within that lane at intervals. The lane to the left of that is the hard shou...

Re: Has Hua Hin Traffic Reached Saturation Point?

Exactly. I'm more of a left hand lane person these days, apart from where the motorcycle lane disappears , there are still many who go far too fast down that stretch, even though they've inserted zig zags and Bluport. Ahem, that's not a motorcycle lane. In Thai it's the 'safety zone', what we would...

Re: Ink refill for.printer

I've just checked back on my mails from Lazada. Apart from nappies for my granddaughter I've had nothing delivered in under a week. On multiple orders they have often been split with part being delivered in a week to 10 days and other parts as much as 3 weeks ahead! I have found Kerry being the most...
