Re: Dual-pricing for foreigners now legal at Thai public hospitals

If like more dry, add 10 minutes. About half kilos fish both. Smaller would be better. Big question is, if salt should be added b...

Re: The FLASHING of Headlights

I would translate it like: Hi there! Please notice… and rest is up to situation. Flashing lights and reducing speed means usually giving a way, speeding means that here I come.
