Bangkok Taxi Driver Abandon's Passenger on Highway

Has become difficult getting into a taxi around Sukhumvit, they pull up to you leaving doors locked and lower the window enough to hear your destination, then they decide if they want your fare or not. Not unusual to deal with 5-10 taxis to get one ride these days. Seldom used to happen, now it is t...

The Base / Sansiri Condo open!

A week after their grand opening sales event in May 2013, the first day bookings could be made, 95% was sold out. I wonder today early 2016 what percent is sold out, vs available, meaning if all those buyers took possession with cash or financing, or if many units reverted back to Sansiri due to a m...

Dark vs Light Liquor.

Aarvark thanks for educating me, and kindly also explain why many blended scotches (and not sure about single malts) add caramel coloring? They need the color (?), does it also modify and add to the taste etc?

I know very little about Scotch.

Dark vs Light Liquor.

Interesting article. Bourbon is on the rise again. See below link under legal requirements. A couple of key points, "straight bourbon" by law comes off the still at a lower proof than vodka, leaving the so called congeners in, which adds flavor. However, most of the aroma, color and taste comes from...

Property Tax - higher from next year

My wife informs me that from next year there will be significantly higher property taxes on homes above a certain value.

Can anyone clarify if true, and how it will be calculated?

Bangkok Air supends flights from 2 November

Nok Air has many flights to Udon....but.....I booked four passengers last week to Bangkok, a couple days before our travel day, they cancelled the flight and we had to rebook (at no charge) on another Nok flight. Then for our return, ditto, they cancelled our original flight, and we had to rebook to...

OT your Shake Shack meal looks like 1800+ calories, nice! I recall seeing mention of Shake Shack on CNBC as a listed company, today surprised to learn it has nearly a US$2 billion market cap!

Gated Community Fees

Charlie, it may be that Le Cellini is the project not named by Papa. Fees since 2008 where 3000 baht per month, now going up to 5000 baht per month, and nobody is complaining that I know of, we like to keep it nice. 24 houses to be exact, down from original 26 since two units became double land plot...

Pomps I believe there is an additional menu page with small side dishes for around 49 baht each, such as small salad, kimchee, mashed, etc which when added to say a salmon makes it more of a complete meal with veggies.

I am definitely one of the cheap Charlie's who wait for Thursdays or weekends to get 30% off their Wagyu steak! My kids simply love the rib eye, and elsewhere they never like steak, too tough for them to eat. In the beginning, the Wagyu night even included a free glass of wine. It is a great promoti...

Sansiri has a housing estate under construction, opposite Index store on the ring road, looks amazing. They do not yet have a sales office, though many homes nearing completion, and from what I saw yesterday re design and color used on the exterior, this is a cut above most others in Udon, definitel...
