Re: Thaiwatsadu Inferno

The comments on Global House's stock are interesting, a little while ago I went to the Global House up here in NongKhai to buy a common size of wire nut to couple electrical wires, they were out of them and I pressed the issue and asked the workers why they were out, their reply was " because the bo...

Re: Where to buy an Electric Tuk Tuk

747Man, I believe you are referring to the shop that sells gas powered tuk-tuks and samlors, I buy parts for my Daihatsu Tuktuk there. I haven't noticed if thay have electric powered tuktuks there.

Where to buy a decent computer desk?

I have given up finding a decent computer desk up here in NongKhai, they all seem to be made out of particle board or press board or whatever you call it. The problem is that after a year or two they start warping and sagging from the high humidity. My niece tells me I need to go to IKEA to get a go...

Re: Beware of Lazada.

when you buy stuff on Lazada aren't they just the middle man for other companies? I have used them several times for items that aren't available here or are super expensive, I have been careful as far as knowing what I am buying and checking reviews and haven't had any problems. I guess because I ha...

Re: O-A VISA EXTEND FOR ANOTHER YEAR

What he is talking about is that if you exit on or before the last day of your visa and then turn right around and come back in, you are automatically stamped into Thailand with an additional year from that date, however if you exit Thailand during that year you must buy a re-entry permit or the vis...

Re: True will not allow me to have an account in my name

The end of the story is that True NongKhai would not even allow my Thai Niece to put the account into her name at first, they said we would have to cancel the account, have our internet disconnected and then pay a new connect fee to change the name on the account. At my urging my niece called True h...

Sorry Kopkei...but you posted what most people would consider an anti-foreigner post on a forum frequented by foreigners, you shouldn't really be surprised by the reactions.

Re: Smoked Salmon

I come from coastal Washington State, never heard of Salmon Trout, there it is either Salmon or it is Trout. Steelhead is a a sea-run cut-throat trout that is akin to salmon, in Norway do they actually call Salmon "Salmon Trout"? or is it just mis-named at TOPS?

Re: Tesco to discontinue plastic bags

Yesterday was "no-plastic bag day" in Thailand, we went to the Tesco here at NongKhai in the evening and they had run out of paper bags and instead of bringing the plastic bags back out they were making people carry their items out in their arms or in carts. I'm all for saving the environment and us...

Re: LED Printers? Any good?

The reason I was looking at new printers is because inkjet #3 just died on me, I forgot to tell the wife's niece who was house sitting for us to print out a page or two every couple of weeks and the ink dried up in the print head, took it to the shop but they said it would be 2,800b to fix it.

Re: LED Printers? Any good?

Although I really wanted to try out an LED printer, I finally settled for a laser printer instead due to the cost difference. The Samsung Laser color multi-function machine I bought was 8,299b through lazada, whereas the LED equivalent would have been 16,000b plus.

I tried to find one here in NongKhai, but the local computer/printer shops have no idea what I am talking about. I tried Landmark also but didn't have any more luck there. One merchant did ask me to show him one on the internet though, at least that was encouraging...someone who was actually interes...

I am in the market for a new printer and am interested in the new LED printers (with LED printing heads, not a laser printer with LED display screen). Has anyone had any experience with these?

Re: Samlor

I hope you sell your samlor, or tuktuk, whichever it is, and I do agree pictures will help.I have been driving them for ten years here and really could care less what anyone thinks I look like. Maybe people should care more about what their insides look like than their outsides.
