We don't live in Nongwausor, but we're close enough that we go to the market there a few times a week. My wife says their prices are better than most any other market around, certainly much cheaper than city market prices.
And just down the main highway about 500meters is the Nongwausor Resort/coffee shop/restaurant. While my wife is shopping at the market, I'll call and order a take out of ginger pork......they cook it up the way I like it. By the time my wife is done at the market, we swing by the restaurant and my order is ready. Today, while there, I noticed three signs announcing a variety of biker activities.....one in Nov, another in Jan, and a third in Fed.
If you have youngun's, or just like seeing one of the area's nicest fish ponds, stop by the restaurant for a coffee or meal.

Amphoe Nong Wau So, a busy week for the girls this week. The government has donated 2,000 sets of shirts caps and scarfs to be given free to the many people that registered to volunteer to help with the big event later this month. They all had to be repacked in sets before being given out.Haven't seen the wife for two days.

Well it's been a busy week for the local police so far this week with two murders on their books. The first yesterday when a good friend of ours was found murdered and his body stuffed down a sewage well .The basic details are he was stabbed with a kitchen knife 10 times at multiple places around his body, with four of them being in the stomache which left his intestines hanging out. The police initially suspected his 22 year old wife who reported finding his body as her story didn't tally with several known facts surrounding the circumstances. Tonight have just found out she has confessed and been charged with his murder, saying a domestic argument escalated into violence. Now today another murder has been reported a bit more straight forward this time involving an ex husband killing the new one , equally gruesome, but involving a chunk of wood as the weapon rather than a knife this time.

From time to time we read about wives who decapitate their husbands organs and feed them to the ducks......in most all cases, it's a case of a husband cheating on his wife. In this case, the husband came back from a trip with a condom in his pocket.

I always thought you used a condom for safe sex but it seems it was didn't work for this poor man.

Non Wau Sor News

Post by Mosquito » January 3, 2018, 7:15 pm

Recently installed road dividers in Nong Or.

So, driving home this evening and hit the first set of two areas with those plastic tube road dividers......was amazed they haven't been run over yet..........of course hit the second set and the first divider was flattened.

From my perspective they add more danger, they aren't properly lighted (plastic tape reflector don't cut the mustard) and limits the clearance area for passing motorbikes and those slow tak taks. They are just an accident waiting to happen.

Are there any qualified road safety professional in Udon or in the whole of Thailand for that matter??

Qualified,road safety,professional in Thailand.more chance of finding that in the amazon basin.the only way to stop all this madness is to close all the gas stations down and start at the beginning with ox and cart and bicycles.

You mean the big, thick ones? Aren't they supposed to be filled with water?

Mango festival 2018

Post by trubrit » February 2, 2018, 10:00 am

Soon coming up the traditional yearly Nong Wai Red Cross mango festival,It's being held on the !st-3rd March at the Amphur Nong Wai grounds as usual. This year nightly entertainment over the three days includes on the first night a junior talent competition, get your offspring in , they may be the future star that will keep you in your retirement, who knows?
The second night is the hugely popular Miss Mango contest where age is no limit, just over 16 thats all .This is accompanied by the VIP dinner which guarantees you a prime view of the lovelies, just book a table for 10 in advance , a great social occassion and chance to get to know other locals .The third night is Mor Lam night a popular group has been booked, goes on till early next day, so no sleep for me that night
All this is accompanied by over 100 sales and trade stalls selling everything from cars to candy, plus of course lots of individual traders with the usual vast selection of mangos of all sizes and varieties at reasonable prices.
No mention about the Mango fair would be complete without the huge Red Cross stand , with it's multitude of prizes where eveyone is a winner .
Make a note in your diary and come along for a good day or evening out and contibute to the Red Cross at the same time. See you there .
Need more details pop in to the Red Cross office located on the ground floor in Amphur or pm me, I will try and help .

Tops in Nong Wai

Post by trubrit » February 2, 2018, 10:13 am

Sad to say although not surprised the Tops Superkoom store in Nong Wai is closing permanently at the end of this month. It never looked to be a success as it was just another mum and Pops style establishment, over crowded with the same stuff all the other village shops were selling, on the other hand the Tesco branch here seems to be doing reasonably well .
