  1. What bit me? (with photo)

    Could be a rash caused by the Rove beetle. The blood of this beetle is very venomous. These are small sleek beetles that can crawl on you while you are sleeping and by lying on them or squashing them uncounsiously you can come in contact with that venom and get very bad skin rashes. See link here https://www.whatsthatbug.com/2010/08/08/creechie-bug-paederus-rove-beetle-warning-for-bangkok-thailand/ I see some of these beetles from time to time in our house and kill them immediately. Best to squash them with a tissue paper and wash the hands after that. They look a bit like a sleek earwig. But I think this one can also fly, so watch out for them. Check your bed and sitting furniture, sofas and cushions for them. Good luck
  2. Renew motorbike tax

    Go to any insurance company or to Dan Auto in Maenam they will provide you with the compulsory insurance and will do the road tax for you. Just leave the green book there and they will call you when everything is ready for pick up after a few days. Auto Dan will also do the check-up for a motorbike if it is older than 5 years (cars is 7 years). No need to drive to Lipa Noi yourself. Unless you are living near there of course. Good luck Sent from my SM-G935F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

  4. Good Coffee Beans Shop

    In the Green Light Café at zhe Elysia Hotel in FV is a coffee toasting machine where they make freshly toasted coffee beans. I do not know the schedule. Just drop by and have a look.
  5. Coffee

    I buy my coffee beans freshly toasted from Redcliff coffee plantation in Chiang Mai. Delivered by EMS two or 3 days after toasting. Their arabica beans are 500 baht per kg and are of superb quality. I buy from them for more than a year now and am very happy with it.
  6. Coffee

    Never heard of arabica coffee for 70 Baht per kg!
  7. Electrolux Micowave Repair Center

    There is a small repair shop for Electrolux appliances. Had my micro wave repaired there for 300 Baht. It is in Bantai shortly after Maenam on the left side going direction to Nathon
  8. where to buy crash helmet on Samui

    You can buy Real Helmets at the Kawasaki shop in Namuang at the ring road
  9. Health department warns of cockroaches eating

    The bugs they sell on the insect food market are not cockroaches. These are swimmer beetles. That's a totally different kind of beetle. Enjoy.....
  10. Receiving post in samui

    I have a P.O. box since 2003 at the Maenam Post Office. It was never free of charge. But at that time it was only 150 Baht. Now we have to pay 500 Baht per year.
  11. Very easy, just pick it up and sqash it, whenever you see one. That way you can keep them at bay.... Good luck
  12. Budweiser beer in family mart

    I also saw the Budweiser here at the Family Mart in Samui. I bought a bottle to try it. But after drinking half of it I poured the rest down the drain. It tastes really disgusting. The real Budweiser from the Czech brewery is very nice however. But unfortunately you can not find it here.
  13. You would probably need to reactivate the Win 10 OS. After such heavy hardware upgrades the OS will not recognise your new hardware and will ask for a new license key. It presumes that it is a new computer. You will have to call MS support and tell them that you have upgraded your old machine. Then they should issue a new license key for you free of charge. Good luck Cheers
  14. P.O. boxes & bank safety deposit boxes in Samui

    Now at Maenam branch. Before they closed down the Bangrak branch, I had it there.
  15. Good Coffee Beans Shop

    Yes, the redcliff coffee from Chiang Rai is excellent. Since more than 6 months I order all my coffee beans from them online. They only sell pure Arabica beans which are freshly toasted after receiving your order and then sent right away to you by EMS. After 2 or 3 days they arrive here in Samui. You can choose your toasting grade according to your liking. This coffee is highly recommended. Cheers, Carlos
