  1. Where to play squash?

    Hi Togume, I'll send you a PM.
  2. Perhaps start dating within your own age bracket. It will make a world of difference.
  3. Excellent news. Perhaps it will make the roads a little safer...

    "Drongo" Love that word...

    The thing is, a lot of songthaews drive around empty, looking for punters. It's not efficient. An Uber car however, will just be stationary until he/she gets a ride.

    No one ever said it was solely down to the Songtaew drivers that Cm's air quality is poor. Where did you get this from? Having said that, pretty sure the black/blue smoke being belched out from those ancient diesels isn't helping. BTW, you forgot to mention what music you're listening too...

    Although I am critical of the interview done by your intern (in the post you mention 'fiery' which I misconstrued as being a critical dialogue), I do appreciate the longer article that you provided a link of. The one E/S failed to understand. This one: http://www.chiangmaicitylife.com/citylife-articles/mess-transit-why-chiang-mai-doesnt-have-public-transportation/ I think it gives insight into why Uber & Grab are still operating even though they are, by law, illegal.

    You're making the assumption that operators are allowed to compete. They're not. "again leave it to the C/Mai punters to decide who they want" They want bus routes, metered taxis, Uber & Grab.

    And then there's the whole section about their app....

    The article mentions "Chuan and Abhisit" Who are they? I might be missing something in the article or perhaps I ought to know?

    Why send an intern? So many more questions to ask. Ask him what he thinks of the pollution the songtaews cause for instance. Ask him about their efforts to block alternative public transport such as the bus system. As them about their strong lobby etc. Ask him about scamming drivers and dodgy pricing. But you sent the intern.... About the interview...."The rot starts at the top" springs to mind.
  14. How much do you tip a caddy?

    Caddies are the reason why I've almost stopped playing golf in Thailand. Totally useless and annoying. They dictate pace of play (ie. slow it down), constantly position you and the cart in the wrong spot (sometimes dangerously so), hand you the wrong club and generally have nothing to add other than: "LEPT O.B." This is my opinion on many rounds of golf in the Kingdom, at great courses and not-so-great courses. Then there's the lame attempts at 'sanuk'. What I'd give to play a round without them... By the way, when I do play I tip them standard rate, irrespective of service levels.
