"A big bag of crisps is a big bag of crisps. Only the clueless who have never bought a big bag of crisps would need to know the size."

And that would be tam?

To me a small bag is the B5 size
Big bag is the B10
Family bag is B20
Sharing size (put in bowl on the table) B30
Gianourmous size (never seen b4 got to Thailand) ....... never even asked

To my little cousin in law in the 'boonies" the B30 size is "small"

What ruddy difference does the size make? I posted because they were half price, get off your arse and go and look if your interested.

The Big Tesco (ring road) has done it again, moved everything. On the positive side, must have saved a few hundred ฿, was so fustrated trying to find things, I just left with half a cart. Just might skip next weeks trip.

Yes, and the Tesco UK branded stuff is even harder to find... if there's any left.

I've been there in the evening and all the meat counters empty!
And My Tesco shortcake no longer sold there!

I am genuinely surprised to hear this particular Tesco actually has a Manager. Over-staffed, and with staff who appear to care not one jot of what a customer may want. Since they removed the 2 stands of Tesco Finest foods, nearly 2 years ago, I can see no valid reason for visiting.

The Royal Project Shop at Central has fresh avocados, 4-5 per bag for 85-90 baht. Last week they had Petersen ( Peterson ) avocados this week they have Booth 7 avocados.. Very nice and tasty. Today at Big C, near Makro, one small Haas avocado for 55 baht. Enjoy.

Makro have some nice Australia Navel (Seedless) Oranges. Very sweet. I think they are around Baht 69 per Kilo
Went back to Makro and got a few more Kilo's of the Aussie Navels. Still B 69 per kilo.

A little smaller this but just as sweet.

Fillet the fish.Peel off the skin.Leave in salt water an hour.
Rinse and dry with a cloth.Paint honey over the fleshy parts.
I cut my own chips of wood.Find a large branch and chip away! (Discard bark)
I use Mango wood.You don't need much . Like half a bucket.
When fire going well place cover until flames go out
Put the fish on a grill on top. (not showing )and replace cover
Takes about 40 minutes to one hour

Just been there and they have moved everything again from last week.

There are no Digestive biscuits Tesco own brand or Macvities.
It looks as if they have been totally removed from the shelves.

There is virtually nothing of Tesco own brand except for dried friuts even the Muesli has gone.
There was some Tesco tea bags.

Waste of time shopping there if you want Falang food.

Is the other big Tesco Nadee the same.

AFAIK there was never any Tesco UK branded stuff at their Nadee mausoleum.

On a sidenote, I thought they had more cars than Big C Nadee a few weeks back so made a point of dropping by a few days later as it had been a fair while since I had checked. All I can say was the 'big car' observation must have been the first night of that Scottish twunts latest Angel movie. The movie theater is just about the only attraction out there.

Villa (UD town) has their bargains/sale stuff either as you go in through the door or just over to the right :-$
