House Robbery, Ban Chiang

Trubrit while what you describe might be plausible, it also seems rather far fetched to make something like that work. Will be interesting to see the denouement on this one.

Dose Espresso - Nice Bistro Across from Maeya (Sponsor)

The new Dose should have its own thread as it is not across from Maeya, and among other differences, the food is quite different, excellent in a different way, in an extremely spacious environment. I especially recommend the seafood salad.

Both are great places.

Ironic pedestrian death in crosswalk / zebra xing

When I slow down to stop at zebra crossings in Thailand, I often turn on the emergency flashing lights to warn the car behind.

Ironic pedestrian death in crosswalk / zebra xing

Amazing Thailand, but not surprising. Pedestrians do not have any right of way in a cross walk here. I tell visitors the cross walk (zebra crossing) means to be extra careful trying to cross the road. http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general/623408/woman-killed-crossing-road-she-urged-pedestrian-brid...

elementary schools Udon?

Am not sure if Don Bosco and St Mary's are considered public or private, I do know they are difficult to get in due to high standards (and some may cite other reasons), though anyone seems to be able to go if the child has merit based on proper behavior as well as smarts. A child must keep up academ...

Setting up a business in udon thani

The new mall adjacent to / behind VT Restaurant on Phosri Road (see the section built behind it by the round about) appears to be going upscale for the neighborhood, I hope they have enough quality tenants who thrive, to make it a go. For sure it will have an upscale Italian eatery. If I were lookin...

Took my children last night Thursday for "Wagyu Night" (40% discount on Wagyu steaks).

Wine House was busy, live music was nice, service was seamless, the food was great.

Looks like quite a feast.

Noted you did not mention they brought the cheese platter at the same time as the main dish so they had to take it away for a while..... And the background sounds of a couple of spirited kids with their mom and merry dad in the back by the bar..... :-s

Anyone used the advertised House Builders?

747man with your name I would have thought you'd prefer an abode that looks like an air traffic control tower.

This company has a slick website, owned by an Alec, is this who you refer to:

Have been twice before the actual grand opening, truly enjoyed both times. The Wagyu steak was on promo at 40% discount (Thursdays for another month), and can honestly say was the best steak I've had in Udon Thani ever. For another month Wednesdays are 40% pizzas though have yet to try. I see on the...

Culture (and price) shock when returning home (to America)

Am just back after a one month family trip in the US, put 3000 miles on a Chevy Tahoe SUV one way rental (the gorgeous beast had under 300 miles on it when I picked it up at LAX) and then final week with a minivan to accommodate the outlet mall and other loot my wife picked up. Outlet malls give pri...

Respect at Immigration

This particular thread is about showing respect at immigration. The goofball who came in at around 10h00 with his shirt almost entirely open and unbuttoned, except for the bottom one button near his belt, was not suitably dressed and exemplifies a lack of respect, even if he may be the rare case of ...

Kuhn Paul if you want to put my words in quotes, you should not change words and twist them around to mean something different when quoting me and then take offense by the way your own mind works.

There is no accounting for taste. I lived many years each in Bangkok, Phuket, Udon Thani, (21 years total) and can afford to live in any of them, we chose Udon 6 years ago for family reasons, which is not to say we intend to stay forever. I still frequent all, as well as the major capital cities acr...

School Holidays

Grin and bear it, no choice. I plan Christmas and summer break trips for the kids and book flights, always a bit comical trying to get dates far in advance, from the school office.

When might Thailand switch to have summer school break in June/July/August, I heard this was being pondered.
