Re: Udon Traffic

Re: RIP Tesco

I had to laugh at the company's explanation of the new name, LOTUS'S...."The drop pin that appears in the new logo signifies that Lotus's is a one-store destination for customers while the S at the end stands for "Smart'' in all aspects".

Re: Prostatitus advice

Just been diagnosed with an enlarged prostate. I was prescribed finasteride 5mg and alfuzosin 10mg. The hospital charged me 1300 baht for a one month supply which seems quite expensive. Anyone buy these meds at a pharmacy, and if so, what is the price range. Thanks. If I may ask, what were the symp...
