  1. I tried livng very cheap for 1 month

    ^ Agreed, pressure off if you find you're struggling on the 15 thousand.
  2. Baht Bus drivers asking for more than 10 baht

    ^ I just ask the driver if he will use the metre. If they answer that they won't, I jut close the door and ask the next one.
  3. Looking for Doberman puppy

    ^ Nice story, if somewhat sad that your Rottie just pined away and died.
  4. The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

    ^ Thanks for the info, would have paid a visit tonight if I hadn't already defrosted some burgers.
  5. Dongtan Beach walkway

    Words fail me. Incredible.
  6. I think I got the next one up, I didn't want the inside doing. I've only been once and now I know how good they are, I'll try the other levels. Obviously when the inside needs doing. Also now that I know what to expect (never been in any car wash quite like it).
  7. Tried it because of this thread and thought it was very good, I'll only be using this car wash in future.
  8. Sky news blacked out

    As someone else has already mentioned, I could only watch Sky News using a VPN on my laptop. Then I noticed Fox News had disappeared from my TV channels, next morning Sky News appeared in its place. I have Jomtien cable (I think), happy with the swap.
  9. I used to be highly critical of TOT as I often had problems, we are restricted however to TOT. Lately they've changed for some reason and now they've got a system where they can check to see if you have a connection. We had a slight problem Yesterday ( first time in a while) only lasted 10 minutes.. They rang this morning to say they were coming to replace my old router with a new one. This was free of charge, my mate on the other hand has problems galore with his provider which starts with a number and then two letters. I tell him now to get TOT where I certainly wouldn't have at one time.
  10. Or-Ah-Hahn-Thai Restaurant

    Is this the Thai place that is sort of half way along a Soi connecting two major Soi's? If so, then everyone seems to rave about it.
  11. Best Seafood Buffet

    Depends on how hungry you are when you go. I go now and then when I want a lager B'fast, I have to be disciplined though, that last platefull can make me feel sick all day from overeating.
  12. Sorry to hear of your recent visit to Cabbages and Condoms. It never used to be like that, however the Chinese are having a growing influence over here, and not always for the better.
  13. Jomtien Immigration: Reporting returns after travel

    I've never filled a TM 30 in before. They know my address as I've registered it at immigration many times over the years. I was only out the country for 10 days.
  14. Jomtien Immigration: Reporting returns after travel

    Yes Jomtien, I should have been more specific.
  15. Jomtien Immigration: Reporting returns after travel

    I didn't know about a TM 30. A friend told me, anyway I made a trip to immigration. I'd been back 45 days since my return to Thailand. Fined 9000 Bt. It was 200 Bt per day, didn't have to pay the 5000 Bt that I also would have been charged as well had I not turned myself in (so to speak). I'm on a retirement extension and have been on the system for a few years now.
