Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fan extension rods are also available and can be found in the same section as the chain extensions and I believe I've seen remote control kits for standard ceiling fans (similar to photo). http://s14.postimg.org/m38in2ugt/image.jpg http://s14.postimg.org/43qvt5akd/41c_P_y_VDbt_L_AC_UL115.jpg

Noodles

Not sure about the “best” noodles in town, but I’ve listed my top 5 favorites... Coffee Pate -for Pho, Vietnamese style noodles available with pork or beef. Somboom (owner) also has an excellent pork, mushroom and rice soup, but I often substitute the rice for noodles. http://www.udonmap.com/udonth...

Consular Letter Confirming Pension/income

The embassy income letter/affidavit is good for 6mos from time of issue. Also, some immigration officers may tell you the letter is only valid within the same calendar year.
