Re: How to register your car

I bought a new car two years ago. Went to immigration in advance to get document authorizing us to buy a car. Same document (letter) but with slightly different text is required to get a drivers license. The car dealership required this letter when we purchased the car. We drove away with red plates...

Re: Reliable and good electrician

I recommend you call Bus, his number is 082-0048532. He speaks excellent English and his price for the work he just completed for me was very reasonable.

Quitting smoking with acupuncture

I've smoked for many years, have quit many times, but always go back to it. I've talked with people that seem to have good, permanent results, using acupuncture. I want to try this method. Can anyone that has tried to quit smoking using acupuncture please share your experience ? Also, can I get sugg...

Re: Awning/Patio

Looks like you are getting plenty of suggestions for the "awning" part of your title, but I'm not sure if these places can build the free standing waterproof patio you mentioned in your post. I know a general contractor that does this and many other kinds of small to medium projects. They do high qu...

Re: Best guesthouse with monthly rate?

I'd check out Phen's Guest House. You can google their website. Great neighborhood, 2 minute walk to the best section of the beach. It's located down Soi 75/1, then turn right at the first intersection, walk 20 more meters and its on the right. I stayed there many times when coming here for vacation...

Re: Windows 10 Developments

My advice is still the same, don't upgrade your version of Windows just because you can, especially if you have a perfectly fine working system at the moment, until the first "stable" version comes out with fixes and patches, usually known as SP1 (Service Pack 1), sit on the sidelines and watch eve...

Re: Need a new kitchen

Thanks for the tips and information, especially on the need to properly seal granite countertops. I'm wondering, besides granite, what are the other choices for countertops that are available here in Thailand ? In Alaska, we had a high end home that had a "Corian" countertop that we enjoyed very muc...

Re: Need a new kitchen

I am planning to completely redo my kitchen, new cupboards, counters, sink, stove, faucets, etc. I want to engage a company to come take measurements and develop a design proposal, and then to accomplish the entire upgrade. I want to modernize my kitchen. I've briefly looked at Boontavorn, hafelle, ...

Re: What's the current beach situation for short term tourists?

Go to soi 75/1, walk down to the beach and you'll find a nice, but slightly expensive restaurant that also rents beach recliners and umbrellas. Very nice area, just slightly south of Market Village. Penns Guest House offers very nice, comfortable cheap rooms just 2 minutes walk from the beach in thi...

Re: Private Thai Language Lessons

I attend classes at Sirada, just finished year 2 and starting year 3. I can read and write Thai fluently, although I mis-spell Thai words frequently, still, due to the multiple consonants and other anomalies in the written Thai language. I attend classes twice a week, 2 hours each day, cost is 3,10...

Re: Private Thai Language Lessons

My daughter is on an ED visa and is with Sirada. Cannot fault the school. However, I think you'll find that lessons are now 4 days X 2 hours to comply with immigration rules of 400 hours in the year recently updated from 200 hours. Maybe you're not on an ED visa and therefore do not need to comply ...
