  1. Facebook website designer in Chiang Mai?

    @khunphil A "Facebook website" look something like this. I personally find them next to useless if you have more than one product or service to sell. They are very unstructured and it is hard to find anything there. Even the most basic webpage will give customers a better experience and therefor will more likely increase your sales. David
  2. Driver's License Procedures Chiang Mai

    Just went by the DL office on Hang Dong Rd this morning and it was closed. I didn't find any sign saying when it would be open again. Anyone know what hours they are keeping this week? I need to go renew my licenses. Thanks David
  3. WD 10TB Red in Thailand?

    Thanks. I'll give them a call. I'll be in Bangkok next week and can pick them up if they have them. David Sent from my SM-T719Y using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  4. WD 10TB Red in Thailand?

    Hi all. I need to upgrade my Synology NAS and want to add 2 Western Digital Red 10TB discs. I've checked the usual online shops - Lazada, BananaIT, and InvadIT - and the largest I have found is 8TB. Does anyone know if the 10TB drives are available in Thailand and if so, where? Thanks David
  5. Yingluck sentenced to five years in jail

    Unlikely to be seeing here in country for a while. David
  6. Chinese Grocery in Chiang Mai?

    From what I have seen, 7-11 seems to be the main PRC Chinese grocery. David
  7. Air Asia flights luggage Carry on

    Not all. Even Ryan Air, the notoriously cheap carrier has a 10kg limit and a separate small item. Seems that AA even had Ryan Air beat in the silly limits department. David Ryanair Hand Baggage Passengers may take one main item of hand luggage into the cabin. This item must not be more than 55cm x 40cm x 20cm in size and 10kg in weight. You may also take a smaller item, such as a handbag or laptop, no larger than 35cm x 20cm x 20cm. Hand luggage is free. However, if overweight, cabin baggage will either be refused at the gate or will be or where available, placed in the hold of the aircraft for £50/€50.
  8. Air Asia flights luggage Carry on

    The official policy is 2 bags with a combined weight of not more than 7 kg. I've flown AA on average about 8 times a year for the past 5 years and the enforcement is fairly random from what I have seen and mostly on international flights. I have seen them weigh bags only once but they were weighing anything that looked like it might be too big. A couple of flights ago, they were doing a forced gate check - it was actually at the door to the plane rather than at the gate since gate personnel didn't seem able to notice people with 4 and in one case 5 bags - because the plane was about 1/3 full and all the overhead bins were full already. People were not happy. Due to the random nature of the policy, I never travel with more than 7 kg total in my 2 bags. David
  9. lasik in Chiang Mai?

    No and no offense to CMU but if I was going to have a procedure done that is this serious, I would head to Bangkok for Rutnin Eye Hospital. This is a procedure you don't want to go bad on you. There is a reason that people come from all over the world to have their eyes looked after at Rutnin. David
  10. And learning Thai script is easier than learning IPA. David
  11. I agree with Nancy. Learning to read is a key. I did a couple of conversation based courses (YMCA and Payap) and it just never stuck. I decided I needed to learn to read. that made all the difference. If you are willing to pay a bit - and I personally believe that it is overpriced at the moment - I highly recommend Learn Thai From a White Guy which you can find here: https://learnthaifromawhiteguy.com/. It is the best researched and organized program I have found. You can even try 4 lessons for free before signing up. By the way, I'm not connected with the site in any way. I paid for the course too. :) As for tones, just remember that we use all the same tones in English that are used in Thai, we just use them in different contexts. David
  12. Driver's License Procedures Chiang Mai

    You might find Loi Kroh Medical Clinic in Chiang Mai a bit more convenient than one in Bangkok. I've used them before. Quick, easy, and inexpensive. David
  13. Driver's License Procedures Chiang Mai

    Was this at the office on HD road? Mine is due next month and I may take a run out this Friday to give it a go. David
  14. Panthip Plaza-CM Refurbishment 2017

    As with all things hub in Thailand. LOL David
  15. Panthip Plaza-CM Refurbishment 2017

    Was just at Pantip a couple of nights ago and it appears the secret is out of the bag. Thailand is to have yet another "hub."
