  3. Bringing cheese into LOS

    i freeze cheese and butter, all contained within a big shoe box, and pack any gaps with newspaper. then parcel tape the lid shut and into my suitcase. as the box ends up weighing a few kg's, everything is kept cold until i get to my home in hua hin. Lurpak Butter about 20 quid a kilo here - but 6 quid back home, so worth the effort.
  4. Thanks mate - motion detection sounds really good. does this system also save the images to the cloud, so that if the camera and enclosed memory card were ripped off the wall, the images would still be stored somewhere? What sort of camera are you using? could you recommend a manufacturer and model number? there are so many on lazada that it is overwhelming ? any app you could recommend too?
  5. Haze/smog in Hua Hin?

    we were in prachuap city on sunday and it was very noticeable down there. i think it is a weather phenomenon rather than pollution

  7. Miserable Studying Thai in Bangkok

    there are some good schools about. i have attended two different schools here in hua hin over the last 6 years, and have enjoyed studying at both. maybe you should go onto your local farang facebook / message board for where you live, and see if anyone can recommend you a better school. PS is it easy to swap schools, or is it another trip to Laos?

  10. Please Help

    i know the guy the OP talks about, and have also been to visit him. believe me, he is a good guy and his crime does not deserve a sentence so severe, under conditions which it also appears are severe....... if the crime had been committed in his home country, or in mine, i doubt he would have even gone to prison........ good on you guys who have offered helpful information and advice........ i pray he can get through this chapter of his life relatively unscathed...... at least he can learn some thai whilst in there.... i am sure he will know every thai swear word under the sun by the time he gets out :)

    check your messages on here greg - i have sent you a PM
  12. Thanks for all your help with this guys - she will appreciate everyone's opinions. I asked her when her thai passport was issued, and it was issued after she arrived back to Thailand, after a long time away. So it does not have any exit stamps in it, in fact it has never been used. Will this make it easier just for her to leave on her thai passport, and enter europe on her dutch passport? Also, is there a chance that upon return, she will be stamped out, and not stamped into an onward country (on her thai passport) so the IO will ask to see her other passport, at which time the overstay may show up?
  13. Thanks Paz....... the reason she mentions the dutch passport and keeping it "active" is that the dutch dont allow dual passports she thinks. Also Paz, your second response seems to contradict your first response...... You say all she need do is "flash her thai id card", but then in your second response you say "if the system has record of her previously leaving on Thai passport and not returning with it, there will be an incongruity and she will be back at square one. Ugly situation especially at the airport with (possibly) unfriendly officers and time ticking." Or am i just not understanding what you mean? Thanks again for helping mate :)
  14. Thanks Mattd..... could she not then, simply leave thailand on her thai passport and enter europe on her dutch passport? (thus avoiding the 20k overstay fine) would this cause a problem when she returned to thailand on her thai passport, as she would have an exit thailand stamp, but no onward country stamp?
