Re: Thai ID with chip to pay bills?

I always pay my water bill and electric bill at the respective main office. It's normally a short wait and I'm out. I rarely encounter more than 5 or 6 people waiting to pay. If for some reason there are a lot of people waiting to pay I just return later. Piece of cake for me.

Re: 7/11 sees profit oportunity and jumps on bandwagon

Seems like a lot of griping over nothing important. Europeans have been using their own reusable bags to shop for as long as I can remember without a hint of a problem. The Royal Project store in the basement of Central Plaza has been promoting this bring your own bag program for quite some time now...

Re: Needed: Fridge Repair Service In-Home

Why not just contact Panasonic service to have a repairman come out to your house? I had a problem with a Hitachi fridge and they sent out a repairman to fix the problem. it was not under warranty.

Re: Old Tesco (ring road)

I can't see the lack of plastic bags to be a problem. Wheel the goods out to the car in the shopping cart a la Makro which has never used plastic bags and put everything in the car.

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.

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.

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

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.
