    Where to buy house hold items

    If you are in Market Village at Tesco, go up one floor to HomePro. Save a trip to Index (about Soi 23-Soi 25)

    Air quality Hua Hin

    Being on the gulf with onshore breezes, HH has decent air quality. That may be why it is barely reported: http://aqicn.org/map/thailand/#@g/9.1415/99.4345/8z

    Hua Hin is dead

    Since when has HH purported to rival Pattaya? Pattaya is a one-off. There is no other place in Thailand like it. HH is more the norm I would say.

    Bus to BKK?

    Go to BKS (main bus station) just south of Soi 96. Ticket window on the right. I know there is a bus at 13:00, and more. See https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Hua_Hin

    Thai words that aren't really Thai

    Lots of words like หมา mǎa (dog) and สุนัข sù~nák (dog). The former is "Thai", the latter from Sanskrit. You will hear both used. No alternative to learning both if you want to understand.

    Cream in a can

    There is Carnation evaporated milk and Carnation condensed milk on sale in shops here. See Wikipedia for differences.

    Buying Gold

    The Finnish guy who runs the Happy Pig restaurant on Soi 94 is quite a gold bug. I would ask him.

    Possible move to Hua Hin, advice sought

    1. Immigration here is a breeze (esp. compared with another place I have experience, Chiang Mai). For a rental you show a copy of tabiian-baan ID card, and owner's phone. What could be easier? 2. Air is good. There is usually a slight breeze which helps with the heat. 3. Gulf of Thailand sucks in terms of wave actions and cleanliness as compared with Krabi, Khao Lak, Phuket. As you lived in BKK, this is probably a "don't care" for you. 4. There must be at least 50 decent restaurants in HH. Seems to me that might be enuf for anyone. 5. Rentals are widely available at decent prices. Determine your area, drive around to find rentals. Services exist to help, I find them useless 6. HH is a 180 baht minivan ride and 4 hrs from BKK. Train is easy too, but more expensive and slower. 7. Can get daily newspapers easily, not true of other places I have lived 8. Availability of Thai language schools in HH is poor (similar to every other place I have lived except CM) 9. Two hour ferry to the eastern shore of the gulf, but expensive 10. Excellent bus service direct to/from BKK airport, ~370 baht 11. Hospitals in abundance 12. There is not an abundance of gyms, but enough 13. Easy access to the south of the country via bus or rail. 14. No airport to speak of. One flight to KL. A plus for me as a committed low-carbon Luddite 15. Enough bar action and associated pool, darts leagues. 16. I am told the golfing is great 17. Phetkasem Rd traffic can be a pain but nothing compared with BKK 18.

    disposal of cooking gas

    Don't put the gas in the atmosphere. Take it to the gas man's shop as several have suggested and trade it.

    To concentrate

    By concentrate you mean "to focus", thus โฟกัส

    Is "Farang" Derogatory?

    No, it's not.
