  1. Yes, it's minivan (some locals just call it 'wann'). 'Lot' or 'Rot' is general word for a vehicle; 'Too' or 'Dtuu' means a container or box. So, Rot Too = a box-like vehicle to cram people into, lol. Ask to stop at Lowtut Yai (or Lowtat Yai) (yai=big=the Big Lotus store). After that, be prepared to be highly praised - "Oho farang phut Thai dee maak", 555.
  2. Restaurants In Ban Chang / Rayong

    I also enjoy the place . Comment supplied to get our Eastern Thailand forum woken up. We are all so content. Nothing new guys??
  3. Road rage is nothing special in the Thailand context. It is a world wide virus. To get some perspective have a look at YouTube bad driving videos from Russia or USA. In Thailand just keep aware 24/7 and observation 360 degrees. When my Thai wife is driving she is always commenting "ai baa, ai ngor" (<deleted> stupid drivers) but that's how it is. TIT.
  4. Spot on. Sounds like a new senior IO. Keep jai yen and ask how your misunderstanding can be resolved. You are the guest, remember. TIT.
  5. Is it Time to Wave Goodbye to the Honda

    First upgrade the bike with Man Utd stickers ... Red Devils ... do it quickly before Man City keeps winning. And respray to red. That lime green really sucks!
  6. Agree with LannaGuy. My Thai brother-in-law has spent time in the monkhood. I asked him and he just shook his head and said "Sorry Khun Roy, it is outside true Buddhism but 'modern' people want these things and some temples let them play with it. Temple can earn money."
  7. UK visit visa - warnings

    Noted and understood
  8. Longterm rentals in Roi Et?

    Clem: you need to post this query in the Isaan Forum (North East Thailand). Roi Et province is not covered in this Eastern Thailand Forum.
  9. ... go elsewhere bro ... out of LOS ... they are out out screw you ... ai baa!
  10. Beer pricing in bars

    I remember an old movie when the losers all cried "Hoo Haa" .... then they washed up in Patpong. The Horror.. The Horror !!
  11. "Knorr" powder,what is it.

    A quote from "famous" chef Marco Pierre White: "Knorr is the best f***ing ingredient in the world, let's not kid ourselves".... it is the best f***king ingredient, it is one that is a good deal better than the sum of its f***ing parts." But: A Knorr chicken stock cube includes enough flavour enhancers (monosodium glutamate, disodium 5'-ribonucleotides and disodium guanylate) to scare off many health-conscious consumers. Even more people will be repelled by the presence on the label of hydrogenated vegetable oil, which is widely agreed to be harmful. Then there is the salt: one cube contains 4.25 grams - nearly 75 per cent of the recommended daily intake for an adult. That, plus half a bagful of sugar makes all Thai food yummeeee! Mai pen rai.
  12. Hopefully you'll get more precise info from other members, but ..... my Thai brother-in-law's son goes there (for about 5 years so far I think). I remember my b-i-l mentioning the fees upon first admission included some hefty "additional fees" which do not appear on paper/website. It was considered part of the "normal procedure" for admission (screening process). It's probably one of the reasons they won't give you a straight answer over the phone. It's likely you'll have to go and discuss it with them personally.
  13. Beer pricing in bars

    This is the Eastern Thailand forum frendo. bottoms up
  14. Restaurants In Ban Chang / Rayong

    Went on a bicycle ride this morning and dropped by Phala Pier Cafe ... Karsten (DK) and his wife Dear (TH) and their cute baby Katerina (DK/TH), have moved somewhere nearby and handed over managership to Tom (TH/CAN). He's a clever and active guy and wish him luck. Now he's trying to get new staff (chefess and waitress) organised. Will try to keep it a 'hideaway' style. As with most places these days, business is slow. Wish them luck.
  15. Mountainbike

    touring mountains around b c. Oh, British Columbia. wrong thread frendo
  16. By the disgusted look on the face of the Thai Officer at far right, the pedo Yank is in for a well-deserved world of pain.
  17. "dick about" (British, idiomatic) = to waste time on an unproductive activity. Similar terms 'mess around" and "faff about". Source: Wiktionary.
  18. But Brits and Americans do wear them - plenty of sources on amazon, ebay, etc. ... and Thai shorts, but only in muay thai style (Thai boxing).
  19. Undoubtedly the cops meant Manchester UNITED will be champs, not that 'other' shower I raise a glass to your stamina, old salt
  20. Jobless with degrees rises again to 220,000

    Only now they are not happy. but no voice to say so. TIT 4.00.
  21. Trink and others were entertaining. But now we are near Thailand 4.00 and everything is changing.
  22. Feel your pain. Getting worse with Brexshit and the pound. Stay Thailand and keep head down is answer.
  23. From Thai news which is rather unreliable. Was not picked up by foreign press. More pressing news. Thai news is a last boring resort.
  24. her daughter had been raped by 40 men from the same village – repeatedly from May to October last year Helped the mother who knew it all along? Are you an Islam apologist
  25. Crying over spilt milk. Thailand still has simple pleasures. So stay here, enjoy and stop bellyaching !!!
