  1. Are the tire pressures correct? If not then this may very well have a an effect on how to car behaves at higher speeds. Have they been checked since you purchased the vehicle? Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  2. It's still 390 too many. Plenty of work to be done. Condolences to all the families involved.
  3. Depth perception fail. Did the train driver stop, or did he flee the scene?
  4. They both actually had full insurance, so after they had trashed it out, my friends's insurance agreed to pay for all the damages. All my friend had to pay was the 500 baht police fine. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. A friend of mine recently knocked a motorcyclist off their bike. This was the all to common classic undertakeing manoeuvre at speed of a vehicle turning left off the highway. Luckily the guy wasn't seriously hurt. But what was interesting was that the police told him that a motorcyclist has every right to undertake a car turning left even if the vehicle is halfway through the manoeuvre! Mind boggling..........
  6. My wife has always been fascinated with historical movies about the British monarchy. Simply because such films in Thailand would never be made. Also, she likes movies which are a bit edgy. Show her something tame like a rom-com and she would just fall asleep! The problem is that everyone's different.
  7. So, what's the fine for a woman going topless when its not Songkran? Is it more or less than 5000 baht?
  8. Myself, first thing in the morning when I look in the mirror. Even after 50 odd years it still shocks me. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  9. Surely it would only be good news If the average size was getting smaller. Because those guys who were once considered normal before are now below average.
  10. Well, personally I would get a huge kick out of returning someone's property to them especially if it was valuable. The smile on their face would be all the reward I would need.
  11. Does this mean all the songthaew and tuk tuk drivers are going to either fit seat belts or find another career?
  12. I tried to buy some of the tea bags you mention from my local Tesco's in Chiang Mai about a week ago, but the cupboard was bare. I hope they do re-stock because, as you say they aren't bad value and a decent cuppa.
  13. That was all I did with mine. I know it's supposed to be automatic, but hey, I was never going to spend hours trying to get to the bottom of why the time was incorrect. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  14. I need to give these books another go. I owned a box set of the paperbacks many years ago when I was a teenager. I tried a number of times to read them but just couldn't get into them. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  15. I met George Harrison at a historic motor racing meeting in England. It was only about a year before his death and he didn't look well. We did get is autograph, but we asked him to sign it on behalf of a friend who is a huge Beatles fan.
