long running script

Do not know if this will help others but I am no longer getting long running script notice. I did the following (using IE9). In IE click on tools, scroll down to manage add-ons then under Toolbars and Extensions I enabled the 2 Java plug-ins, then closed IE and started it again. It worked for me. I...

My last trip to Home Pro and Global

I was in Global House yesterday because I needed some parts for the wheels of my front gate. I was pleasantly surprised, they completely changed their attitude. All personnel was friendly, nobody running away or hiding from Farang. There was even an English speaking employee who assisted me and guid...

Follow-up to Yesterday's Legal Seminar for Foreigners

Dont get too paranoiac Semp, they already know everything they wan't about us, and if they wanted a new updated picture they only have to look on your file at immigration. Years ago when a "farang" settled in Udon, they got a visit from a police detective (unannounced), complete with his "lackies",...

Fluorescent Lamps that Never Go Out

When I was staying at my sister-in-law's house, I encountered the same problem. Very annoying. If people react as if they don't know what you are talking about, it usually is because they don't see the problem, they are so used to it that they don't notice that there is something wrong. In my house ...

My last trip to Home Pro and Global

It's the same formula in most branches. Thai Watsadu only has a cantine, mainly for employees' lunchbreak. Global House has a small shop where you can buy some snacks. Home Hub has a simple basic restaurant. Home Pro has a good quality restaurant. It's the same formula for each shop at each location...

My last trip to Home Pro and Global

On the first day of opening everybody is happy and excited. There are special opening discounts and everything looks new. However, after a while it's just one of the many shops. Competition is good, it will level things out. Like in Khon Kaen, there isn't much difference there between Home Pro, Glob...

Traditional Thai Massage Training in Udon

Massage hobby courses can be found in many places, but the certification doesn't mean much, and probably the quality of the massage doesn't mean much either. There are a couple of real massage schools in Thailand where the certification is valid: There is the Wat Po massage school in Bkk, and there ...

Learn to speak Thai

Any advice on how to learn to type Thai, like we learn to type English (by touch/memory)? Thanks HM This is an online typing game. You have to type a short sentence within a certain amount of time. If you type the sentence within the time limit, you will go to the next level. http://typeinthai.com/...

Parking in Udon Thani

I use the same dentist and I always park in the Central Plaza garage. Cantral Plaza is at three minutes walking distance from the dentist.

I always go straight up to level 5, there's always enough space to park, then take the elevator down.

Information about Kumphawapi

Not much has changed in Kumphawapi. There is the new Tesco Lotus. The biggest change I saw during the past 5 years is an invasion of Farang in Kumphawapi. The two Farang restaurants however couldn't survive, mainly due to a lack of customers, which doesn't surprise me at all (they are/were not so go...

There are few things worse than saying ไอ้เหี้ย to a Thai. Unfortunately, many foreigners (including me many years ago) learn a variety of gutter Thai and don't understand the implications of using it.

Gas Station Rip Off Udon Thani

Two weeks ago I went to that gasstation to fill up the tank. After a short while we smelled petrol and decided to look. The guy was standing next to the pump while the petrol was overflowing out of the tank onto the ground. He appologised, but already more than 5 liter had been wasted. I think that ...
