  1. A USB stick with a custom logo printed on.
  2. Thanks for the reply. They have an 'audited supplier' rating for some, but even this doesn't seem much of a safeguard. Probably best bite the bullet and pay a bit more through eBay. I'm actually a bit concerned that some of these suppliers have my email now...... I got one message asking for my bank details before I even confirmed an address!
  3. I'm a bit cautious about using this site (http://www.made-in-china.com/) - I need some custom USBs delivered to Thailand, but having to go through the independent suppliers who advertise on the site seems a little dodgy, especially when having to arrange direct payment. It's annoying as there are some good prices to be had.... Anyone have any experience ordering through this site? Cheers
  4. Here now, last night I used an ATM in a 7 / 11 that ominously just said you will be charged 'fees' for this transaction. I'm an idiot.
  5. OK... Is a bit like Cambodia in Malaysia? I.e. ringitt for small change, dollars otherwise?
  6. Not sure whether to change baht into rangsit here, or use an ATM in Malaysia... any thoughts? I would have to pay ATM fee in Thailand anyway.
  7. Thanks for the responses. At the moment it's looking like the best way of doing this might be to set up my overseas account on my PayPal, if I can, and pay from my PayPal into the account.
  8. Cheers.. any chance you could let me know the name of the forex company? I'd like to check it out
  9. I need to make an international payment from my UK (Barclays) account into an overseas account (also my account), every month. I can't set up a standing order, so am having to make a manual payment online each month. Just done this and the bank charges came to way over 10 per cent. Is there any way I can do this cheaper? Obviously Western Union etc is likely to be more expensive, but as they are both my accounts, it seems like there must be a better way? Any suggestions welcome.. Cheers.
  10. Sadly I'm off the booze at the moment.. So a good coffee is a bigger priority than a beer. Looking forward to it.
  11. Nice one.. Thinking of using a visa service as a time saver. Sounds like it saves a lot of hassle + taxis. Tandorri ovens sounding good!
  12. Heading to Penang soon. Anyone know how many RM I can expect to pay for a cheap single room on Chulia St? I hear that's the area to go. And any tips on things to do over a couple of days?
  13. considering going it alone for tourist visa from Penang this month. Mixed reports are hardly encouraging though... Seems strange they would ask for 10 days hotel stay proof from the visa run services, but not from independent travellers.. Any more recent reports on Penang guys?
  14. Jesus.. that's a proper snake! To anyone saying there aren't monkeys on KP.. there definately is! Nearly mowed a couple down on my bike.
  15. By everything I mean standard HiV, HBV, sexual infection tests, I then had a blood test to check levels in my liver after this. Re: ab pain, I have had no signs of jaundice, just a gap in the symptoms, then the liver pain back. Been advised it is a normal symptom and if it does't get any worse to just wait until it's time for another HBV test. Feel free to fact check / correct away!
