Re: Aspirin.....Controlled Substance?

Re: mail order cigars?? what if intercepted?

They were the opposite from helpful in my case. My stuff was held in Bangkok and I was charged for delivery to Udon by UPS. The last word in my previous post describes them in full.

Re: mail order cigars?? what if intercepted?

Dealing with Thai customs is a nightmare!!! They will be held in Bangkok and only sent out after customs Duty has been paid. There are also charges which normally when totaled up exceed the price of the goods. This also includes presents or in our case a free gift from Etihad which after customs was...

Re: UK man has "worlds worst" gonorrhea

Ok, I know it's in the wrong section.... The mother superior of a convent was worried. She called her community of nuns together and said: “Sisters, I have grave news. We have found a case of Gonorrhea here in our convent…” “Thank The Lord,” came the cry from one of the older members of the communi...

Re: UK man has "worlds worst" gonorrhea

I remember in the sixties out here there was another strain of VD called " Vietnam Rose". Some called it the "Black Pox" These we're the most serious in those days. When l think about the days when we lined up with the GI's for our turn in the Boogie Street brothels it makes me realise how ignorant ...

Re: Transport to NONG KHAI...not from airport..

Have used the mini bus a few times. Price 60 baht.
Your packed in but everyone has a seat. Once your in NK they drop off at various places. Just tell the driver when you want off or wait until the bus station which is the last stop.

We just got a bottle of gas. 320 baht in village but wife collected it. I remember we bought a small bottle of gas and the deposit on the bottle was the same as the bigger bottle. We reverted back to big size for spare.

Re: Where to buy English Tea bags

Never used any of those two. This time I only used K.P.K which doesn't have a lot of items. Normally I use Pattaya Prime Foods but since "A" at the Kineree has a large display freezer stocked with their products I go there. As for Tea bags & curry I have enough to do for about 2 years.

Re: Where to buy English Tea bags

Just looked this place on google maps. From where I am in Patters it's estimate nearly a 6 hour drive. I could be more than halfway back in that time, Therefor will have to order by phone.
