Re: Another dog attack yesterday. Looking for pepper spray.

Looking for a strong "Laser light" - being used by these effin idiots trying to blind airline pilots, for my use = Dogs and Cats ONLY at a distance. Been here too long and the olde sling shot does not work as well as it once did!

Re: Supermarket prices out of control

All this complaining is BS! Simple supply and demand! If you can't afford it go elsewhere or do without. Business is what it is! The priority is their share holders and profit margin. EVEN here in Thailand. BTW:- Last Thursday large Leo was 614 Baht in our local BigC (with their BS alcohol trading h...

Re: I give in! Where can I feed TW -------

On recommendation from a local bar manager we tried the Brick House. Very happy with it - I'd say 7/10 - An excellent rare Rib Eye Steak and Mixed Salad, included a very healthy portion of black olives :). Lost a few points over the "mashed potato" = how do you like it? one lump or two! Although the...

I give in! Where can I feed TW -------

As a few of you know I have lived in the Udon province since 2001. In days gone by it was a real pleasure to go into Udon to stay overnight, have a beer (whilst the missus is out shopping) and decent meal. NOT so now! Steve's gone - Mojo's gone - Aussie & Koala Bar (Justin) gone - Richmond Steak hou...

Re: Missing Boys in Caves.

Very sad, I hope the boys are alright but I have my doubts. Why go in a cave that is known to flood in rainy season? Unfortunately Thai's and water is an "Oxymoron"! For what ever reason basic water education is not in their mind set???? They have NO idea of the dangers let alone the best way of es...

Re: Why won't she marry me

Just to add:-

This book does not necessarily apply to the OP but should be COMPULSORY reading for any Farang intending to get into a Thai relationship.

Re: Why won't she marry me

Your not "Robinson Cruiso" when it comes to this type of Thai relationship. Take the hint and move on. OR, in the not too distant future you will be in the same boat again minus 1Mil Baht plus plus and maybe even a house and land if she keeps playing the game! Lived here over 17 years and see it as ...

Thanks for that, just did a dummy run = looks encouraging. Been doing mine 'online' (on and off) for >2 years now. Always had to use IE which, IMHO, sucks.

Re: HOW RIDICULOUS IS THIS? (TOYOTA UDON THANI)

There are other conciderations here! The cost of a new windscreen = loss of no claim bonus + excess payment? (3000 Baht?). OK there is a crack but it is not dangerous just the outer lamination on the left side. If TGF is currently driving on shoddy roads why not wait a few months and re avaluate the...

Re: HOW RIDICULOUS IS THIS? (TOYOTA UDON THANI)

I can understand where the dealers are coming from = an insurance claim is NOT their problem! Your course of action should have been to go directly to the insurance company and told em of the incident/accident, they would have sent a rep out within hours to do an assessment and get the ball rolling ...

Re: CIA base in Udon

Having lived in Ban Dung since late 2001 I'll just make a few points here:- VOA = CIA I have no idea, just a few rumors about a mini van doing daily trips to and from Udon with American personal on board. Early in 2002 I bought an expensive multi band radio (SW MW LW and FM) just so as I could liste...

Re: Proposal of new Affordable Thai Health Insurance

So let me get this straight, this health scheme being talked about is 2k baht per month, 24 k per year no outpatient at a Gov hospital. My Bupa platinum cover is 3,333 baht per month, 40 k per year no outpatient. So I stay in a private hospital with A/C, good doctors, nursing care, food in a privat...

Re: HOTELS NEAR DON MUANG AIRPORT

Agreed, I use the Amari if laying over for a morning connection to Udon. A bit weather beaten but has a good bistro open until about 23:00 for a meal and beer. Note; just be careful of the escalator leading down to the foyer from the sky bridge if you have heavy luggage. It starts automatically and ...

Re: PHEN, Pink card from the Ampher?

Wow man it really ain't worth all that trouble, I've had mine about 5 years and can count on the fingers of one hand when it's been really useful, more so than say my Thai driving license. Only last week it was turned down by Bangkok Bank and Thai Air as identification . I have to agree, the only r...
