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

Do Tesco like them? I really dislike the stupid little coins and over the years have managed to collect quite a few. I had an hour or two to waste the other day and sellotaped them in to little piles of 5 baht and 10 baht. A grand total of 175 baht. Will I appear like a cheap charlie if I offer them...

Re: Pigeon Pie anyone?

Can the scrawny feral ones be fattened up with a bit of corn? I just think that the Thais are missing a trick here when it comes to getting rid of a nuisance, and at the same time having some meat to eat with their rice. It must surely be better for them than the artificially fattened chickens that ...

Re: Thailand's imported wine crackdown

^I agree with aragon. It's not just the wine, or a whine about the price of wine. It's being able to buy those little treats at a reasonable price. Yes, I can certainly live without wine, but I like to have a box of drinkable stuff for the odd occasion when a glass of red just hits the spot. The bes...

Re: Pigeon Pie anyone?

I'm puzzled as to why Thais don't eat pigeons. They eat what I consider the strangest food in some areas: rats, insects, snakes, etc., but haven't caught on to fried pigeon. They're also pretty easy to catch compared to other Thai 'delicacies'. I accidently caught one just outside the house when it ...

Re: Wildlife hunters must face justice

What's the betting that Yong, Nathee and Thanee will take the rap for this and the big boss will get off with a minor charge?

Re: Where's PeteC?

Nice to see you back, Pete.

Do you want me to continue with F1 leader board updates, or do you want to do it? I'm happy either way.

Re: Movies on DVD

Play Misty For Me Sunday afternoon is sometimes 'film time' for us (especially when it's raining). Henry's been going on and on about a film called 'Play Misty For Me'. I was only 10 year's old when it was released in 1971 so obviously hadn't seen it, but as Clint Eastwood is the star I thought it ...

Congratulations Bamboo Grove - wear the yellow cap with pride. Commiserations Big Boy - you have a nice wooden spoon to stir your broth with. ;)

I'm sliding down towards the bottom of the table - seems to be my favourite spot...

Re: 2018 F1 News and Prediction Tournament

Totally agree about Verstappen. He's a young guy, with a lot of talent, unfortunately he's inherited his father's arrogance. I'm a Ricciardo fan, and, in my opinion, he's the best over-taker on the track - I was mortified when Verstappen did the double swerve to his team mate. Red Bull are going to ...

All sausages sold by the Hua Hin Ham & Bacon company go through a rigorous tasting process before being put on sale to the public.

Having never seen a string of sausages before, Freddie (second left) thought it was some kind of musical instrument.
