Re: Teaching vacancy in Udon.

Inquire in IP section at Udon Pitt. Go direct to IP section admin. Run by Alex (a Thai).

IP is International Program mostly taught in English. When I inquired for my child to apply as a student, they asked me if I wanted a job teaching.

Social Distancing while eating out

Experiences social distancing in Udon's restaurants. Here is one: Had lunch today at MK Suki in Central. 3 of every 4 seats at each and every table have a big red X saying "Social Distancing". We were advised maximum one person per table. My daughter is over 110 cm tall so had to sit at her own tabl...

The Country Grill

Thread totally lacking detail, or is Noks new place a secret society?

***

I miss "Le Country Grill" and in particular Alain, though suppose his original venue is unrelated and different location? Is he still around and operating somewhere?

Looking forward to eating out again.

Schooling in Udon Thani

Thank you for the replies. Greivous, am still digesting it all! 555 ICS told me they have 7 applicants already for 8th grade, plus some coming from outside Thailand and I imagine that means Laos and not London. Udon Pitt has an IP program with around 300 students across 6 grade levels, I really woul...

High Schools (Mattayom)

Wow, no update in 4 years....I seek input regarding high school options - with emphasis in English. My kids at Don Bosco until 2017-2020 we moved to in Phuket for "EP" at Kajonkietsuksa school middle of 3rd and 5th grades. EP in this case means 70% of instruction is in English, 30% Thai. We have now...

Re: Nok Restaurant - in Nongsamrong Area (Sponsor)

Here is how GRAB works:
They grab a chunk of your profits, but you sell more that might not sell otherwise.
Not sure, but might be as much as 30%, and Grab pays the seller more than 30 days later.
Someone else might post specifics if they know.....

Re: Superb 3 bedrooms 2 bathroom with private swimming pool house for sale

Investment property, May I ask what is the monthly rent? To estimate the yield / return.

Kitchen looks great, what does living room look like? And the facade of the house?
