  1. Now at Maenam branch. Before they closed down the Bangrak branch, I had it there.
  2. 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
  3. You can try the Tanachart Bank for safety deposit boxes. I have one there since more than 7 years. Good luck Cheers, Carlos
  4. It seems that nowadays it takes a few working days for them to process the paperwork. And during that time they keep your passport at the office. You only get a printed number tag as receipt. Last year we got our extension within 1 1/2 hours. This time it took us 5 days...
  5. Sorry post went out prematurely. After the bend it is about 30 metres more and then on the right side. There is even a green sign there that ssys mtb mechanic. His name is Dit and he speaks English qwite well. He is also a very good mtb racer. Good luck Carlos
  6. There is a good mtb mechanic in Bangrak at the airport road on the way to the arrival terminal. His shop is just after the small gas station. There is a sharp right bend and after that it is about 30 metres
  7. Well, according to my calendar the 30th of March is a Thursday and not a Saturday.... So when will it be now? Cheers, Carlos
  8. Yes, this is a sea eagle and not a falcon. Falcons are much smaller. It was probably protecting a nearby nest. We have a pair nesting on a big jungle tree about half a mile from our house. They are beautiful birds and very large.
  9. Sorry, but here you are a bit on the wrong side. Sushi are never on sweet sticky rice. The sushi rice is made with the help of vinegar and is topped with raw fish, cooked prawns, smoked eels and so on. Sashimi is raw fish as you have mentioned correctly. But Sashimi is fish only and no beef at all. Enjoy Carlos
  10. This is the larvae of a moth. It is a pest and should be killed on sight. I think these moths then also eat textiles and food... These larvaes cover themselves in dust and small dirt particles and normally at night crawl slowly upwards towards the ceiling where they then fix themselves to the ceiling with a small thread and wait to evolve in a moth.
  11. Here in Plai Laem there is very little governement water at the moment. And if you live a few meters above the mainroad level the pressure is so low that there is not even a trickle coming out of the pipe. Since about 3 days we did not get any water here. Hope the rain starts soon.... Cheers, Carlos
  12. Just go to Tesco Lotus. They have universal remote controls for all kinds of Air Con brands. As I remember they cost 290 Baht and work perfectly. Cheers, Carlos
  13. I really don't know that they are writing about a strong Baht. Contrary the Baht is weak against the US$. If you have to pay 34,76 Baht for 1 $ then this means, that the Baht is weak. If you have to import goods and have to pay in US$ then you have to pay much more Baht. If you have money in US$ then it is an advantage then you get more for your money. But from the Thai view of the exchange rate this is actually a disadvantage. For Thailand in this case the Baht has a lower value against the US$. Or am I missing something? Cheers, Carlos
  14. I think his stainless steel shop is still in Maenam, on the left hand side when you are driving towards Nathon just before the sign for the Mantra Resort Check it out Carlos
  15. I have heard that there will be a break of one month in FV
