Re: Ring Road Improvements

They've started grinding the deformed asphalt from the new bridge towards Global House. It looks like new asphalt will be used and not concrete.

Re: Minor Earthquake shakes Loei province

My wife and I both felt the 6.4 quake which struck just before 7 this morning. Lots of swaying hanging lights etc. We live in Nong Samrong and knew immediately it was an earthquake from prior living in Italy and California.

Re: Villa market

I shop there often because they have a very good selection of imported/Domestic foods/goods. They carry a great selection of organic products along with specialty products especially suited to a person's sensitive dietary needs. Is it more expensive? I guess that's a subjective call but I see lots o...

Re: Udon Thani International Airport

Anyone wishing to fly to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City, Luang Prabang etc can do so very easily by simply crossing the border and flying from Vientiane. 2 years ago 4 of us cyclists flew to Hanoi with our bikes from Vientiane. It definitely beat flying to Bkk and then to Hanoi. We're heading to Taiwan w...

Re: Diazepam is now illegal like yaaba

As best i can tell Dizepam (Valium) is a controlled drug here in Thailand. it's classed with Anxiolytics / Anticonvulsants / Hypnotics & Sedatives according to the Thai Mims. I also believe aspirin is controlled because it could cause uncontrolled bleeding in the stomach.

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

Interesting post blue But I disagree with you completely. The same size and construction of every appliance here in Thailand using a FLAT blade plug is no different than 3 prong flat blade plug pictured earlier. I've been using those same flat blade with a ground pin plugs on every extension cord I'...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

Actually I'm talking about ANY kind of electrical wiring. There's absolutely no difference between house wiring and an extension cord when it comes to the safety aspect. Short of a cordless/double insulated tool i always use a a 3 wire especially when working outside. When outside the extension is c...

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

If 2 prong plugs and sockets "are perfectly safe and acceptable" i wonder why electrical codes call for a 3 wire grounded system? i would suspect the 3rd wire is for safety purposes. So if you're not concerned with electrical safety than by all means use a 2 wire system.

Also available at Tesco Lotus Extra. I bought 2 1.5L bottles yesterday and found the taste to be very nice.

Re: Sugar Free Sprite in Udon (again)

I think I know where you're talking about now. There should be a temple on the left at the intersection (with traffic lights) of the ring rd and Nong Bua rd. Thanks I'll check it out.

Re: Sugar Free Sprite in Udon (again)

Rick any chance you can give me some map coordinates. For the life of me I can't quite figure out which 7/11 you're referring to.

Re: Surveillance/Security Camera

I really don't want a wire hookup between the camera and the recorder. Ideally I want a cordless wifi camera which I can view on my computer or a seperate recorder

Re: Surveillance/Security Camera

Thanks Parrot. I know just where they're located from looking at their map. Easy to find. Just down the road from the Poom Me Ice Cream place.

Re: Surveillance/Security Camera

Pretty obvious isn't it. I want a cordless wifi outdoor camera system installed by someone who hopefully knows what they're doing. I'm not interested in doing it myself either.

Re: Surveillance/Security Camera

Thanks but I want something with a battery and I want it installed by the vendor in case there's a problem. The tech guy from Landmark was unable to get his cordless Watashi wifi camera to work with my wifi (3BB fiberoptic) even after calling 3BB about the problem.

Surveillance/Security Camera

I'm looking for a shop here in Udon Thani which will sell & install an outdoor surveillance/security camera. Our house is in Nongsamrong just north of the "ring road". I've already tried 1 shop in Landmark Plaza which came out and was not able to install a cordless wifi camera. The "tech" claimed th...

Re: The Palm Garden

We all had western food. Great service, nicely decorated, comfortable seating and well prepared food which arrived nearly at the same time for the 5 of us. I'll be back again.
