    Concept 2 Rower Model D (Exercise For Fat Loss)

    Forgive me if this has been asked previously, but what oil are you guys using for your Concept 2 chains? 3-in-1 oil is recommended, but it doesn't seem to be available in Thailand. Thanks! ? By the way, I'm ahead of schedule to hit my goal a million kilometers this year. ?

    Travel Insurance for 84 Year Old

    My 84 year old mother will be coming to Thailand later this year for 3 weeks, and I'm trying to find travel insurance for her, but it's proving to be a bit difficult. I've noticed that there are a few agencies in the UK but I apparently she's not eligible because she is American. Any ideas? Thanks! ?

    Just got home, and I flew and checked-in to the hotel with my Thai DL.

    Just read TGJBKK's post. Wish I read it yesterday.

    IHOP Says Opening at Siam Paragon on April 16

    Stopped in this morning for breakfast and was incredibly disappointed to be informed that they didn't have hash browns. They offered french fries or mashed potatoes (!?!?) as a substitution. We left and ate elsewhere.

    Domestic Flight with Thai DL as ID

    I've been using my Thai driver's license at check in at the airport for years, but apparently there's a rumor going around that foreigners are no longer able to do this and must show their passport or be denied boarding. This is allegedly a recent development/change or rules. Has anyone flying domestically (specifically on Air Asia) in the last week or so and encountered this problem? Thanks! ?

    IHOP Says Opening at Siam Paragon on April 16

    Thanks for your reply. Was just hoping that it's still open and offering the same items as detailed earlier in the thread.

    Will be headed down to Bangkok soon and IHOP is definitely on the agenda. Any updates on the 4th floor location and the menu?
  10. Hi everyone, My wife's laptop began to have difficulty booting, and eventually stopped altogether. Before it stopped completely, the computer was able to pick up a strong wifi signal anywhere within the house. Called in a tech who took the laptop and said it was an electrical issue and he'd order a part and sort it out in a few days. The next day I saw the news about VPN Filter malware and rebooted my router as suggested. Every other device in my home has no issues with the wifi connection since the reboot. The tech returned the laptop and it boots right up. However, the laptop is now only getting 1 bar even when it's placed right next to the router. Any ideas about what could be causing this? Thanks! ?

    Concept 2 Rower Model D (Exercise For Fat Loss)

    What sort of warming up do you do? I just sit down and row a moderate pace for and hour and make sure I get to over 12,000 meters. No injuries yet (touch wood).
  12. My wife, a Thai national, is going to open a small translation business and I was wondering what sort of legal requirements there are for such an undertaking. Not specifically for the field of translation, but just for opening a business. Her plan is to do some significant online advertising, so it would be difficult for her to "fly under the radar". I should add that she'd initially be working from home without any employees. Of course she's doing some research on Thai government websites, but I was hoping to get some feedback here in English so that we can compare notes on what we learned. Thanks very much. ?

    Becoming a "Certified" translator in Thailand

    Hi, Does anyone know what the process is for a Thai national to become a certified translator? Thanks! Apologies if this is in the wrong part of the forum.

    Is this a large Tesco or one of the smaller ones?
