I would appreciate it if anyone can help/advice regarding removal/killing of geckos inside the house. I know they control insects etc but I have an intense dislike for gecko cr@p on the bedding.

The two Mr D.I.Y. outlets in Udon and the one in Nong Han are also comparatively busy. They're almost like the US's Dollar Stores without the food and toiletries.
I noticed one has opened up at The Udon fresh veg and fruit market as well.I enjoy pottering around in them.

Have they downsized their floor space yet like many flagship Tesco-Lotus branches nationwide have done?
Yes,and one of those DIY stores (which also appears to have customers in it all the time)opened up in the space they reduced.

VT is a great example of a restaurant that maintains a high standard of service and food quality.

Spot on comment.
This business model/product stands head and shoulders above anything else I have seen in Thailand.
I have never been dissapoined.I rate their banana chips too.

The tourism sector is in decline with most resorts admitting there 30 0r more percent down with little chance of recovery. Hotel company's have admi...

Lions will not win any games with the lack of tackling ferocity and inaccuracies they displayed.
Very disappointing.
Richmond on the other side of the scale were terrific.

Today in Makro, 500g Arabica beans from Nan Province, 235 Baht. I haven't opened/ground the beans just yet, but I'm guessing they'll be good.
Great choice.
It's a nice coffee.
