Re: Is it time to say bye Thailand?

Jack & saint have it right. Laan Yaa Mo has been a consistently accurate and helpful member for a lot of years. He has a lovely wife in Khon Kaen and is quite knowledgeable about Thai history and culture. A stand-up guy who has contributed much insight on the forum.

Re: world heavyweight title

I didn't see the opening ceremonies before the bout and was unaware that they played the Mexican National Anthem. His parents are Mexican immigrants but Andy was born in California, grew up there and graduated high school in his home town of Imperial. Perhaps as a Mexican-American he has a choice of...

Re: Camping chair

Not camping chairs but we got some pretty sturdy folding camp stools at Makro some time back. Not sure if Makro still carries them but they were available in the past. Good luck.

Re: The HORN

Mrs. Shado says honking the horn is just considered to be impolite mai soo phaap (ไม่สุภาพ). Apparently, it's acceptable under certain circumstances but generally Thais save the horn honking for driving past the wat or a shrine. Yes, I know the explanation seems incongruous considering all of the ot...

Re: Where to buy remote controlled gate opener?

Re: Where to buy remote controlled gate opener?

He has an office on the ring road pretty much opposite from Tesco Lotus Extra. If it's Chokchai Gates you're talking about I'm not sure if the current intersection construction has impacted his shop or not. We've received good service from them. If the shop isn't open due to the construction these ...

Re: learning the thai language

These are the jars that made me think they may have given the name to the clavicle. The rim looks a bit like a collarbone. That's just my take on it though.

Re: learning the thai language

A while back my wife had a slight injury to her right clavicle, not broken or cracked but quite painful. We went to see Dr. Chatchi on Si Suk Rd. and he took care of the problem. It was then that I learned that the Thai word for clavicle was gra duuk hai bplaa raa . I assumed it must have to do with...

Re: Earplugs

Swimming goggles are sold the swimwear section at Supersports in Central Plaza, they might also carry earplugs for swimming. Maybe worth checking.

Re: International BBQ Buffet Night - Centara

The wife selected the Centara Int'l BBQ for our Valentine's Day dinner. We won't be making a return visit. Poor selection, poor preparation and not particularly fresh seafood during our experience. Other's may have a different opinion but we'll certainly give it a pass in the future.

One option for pricing: Bottom floor of Central Plaza.......Boots, Watsons and P&F Pharmacies......all within feet of each other. My experience is P&F offers the best prices......but then Forte beats them. YFI: P&F Pharmacy has moved to a new location. Still at Central Plaza, same level, but they a...
