  1. The first two photos look like crumpets to me. Crumpets are made with baking soda that produces the bigger holes
  2. Okay. Thanks for the reply ubonjoe.
  3. Has anyone used a 5yr Thai driving license as proof of address when applying for a new passport? Was it accepted?
  4. Don't come a knockin' when the wagon is a rockin'
  5. A friend needed the same thing last week. He went into SCB and asked for his address to be printed on his statement in English. Staff with very limited English skills said it couldn't be done. My niece, who works for SCB said it could be done. He went back and found an English speaking member of staff and got it the next day.
  6. I think it's a light railway extension from Bang Sue to Rangsit. I don't think it's due to be finished for another year or two. The BTS extension is being built along Pahonyothin Rd, which is on the other side of the airport. That will run from Mor Chit to Ku Kot.
  7. Tesco/Lotus, Lam Luk Ka branch in the north of Bangkok gets my goat every time I go there. Lots of disabled parking bays all conveniently placed near the entrance ALL taken up by motorbikes. Fortunately, I don't need to use the bays, but I pity any poor bugger that does. Next, the shopping carts. They regularly run out of carts in the store. They're all sitting, abandoned in the car park. Why can't they organise staff to continuously collect the carts rather than wait till they've run out. I tried speaking with the manager, but just got the usual grin and shoulder shrug.
  8. I'd like to recommend a small but great cafe/restaurant in Silom. It's called Tealicious. It's in a small soi opposite Lebua State Tower. The food is a mixture of Thai and western. Both are of excellent quality, as are the staff. Check out their facebook page for more information. As I said, it's small, so it's wise to book in advance.
  9. I also recommend the Oxford Bookworm series. Choose a level suitable for your child, and away you go. Se-Ed bookshops usually have a good selection on offer.
  10. Are you sure you're not using a slightly smaller tablespoon?
  11. Yes you can, if you want to use fresh fruit. I just use lemon/lime juice from Big C or the local market. Very cheap and works really well. Some recipes say to use lemon/lime zest but I never bother.
  12. I used to make a nice banana jam that always turned out well. I make lime curd every week. 1 cup white sugar 1/3 cup lime juice (From a bottle) 3 eggs (Beaten) Mix them all together in a metal or heatproof bowl. Put the bowl on a saucepan of simmering water (Bain marie or double boiler) Stir continuously with a wooden spoon until it thickens and coats the back of the spoon (Around 5 mins) Remove from the heat and stir in 60gms of butter. Let it cool a bit before putting it into a jar. The peach chutney sounds good, I'll have to give it a go.
  13. Lazada 1 - 0 giddyup If you are determined to keep it, at least get a refund for the price difference.
