  1. Yasothon has the annual Rocket Festival with many side-shows. Seen it a few times many years ago and the little town gets blocked solid. Typical Isaan street shows in the evening so worth seeing once -- if you keep a safe distance.
  2. Does anyone know why Thai Expat TV is not working correctly. I was off for almost a full day; now it's returned with only half the choice of channels. I have emailed them twice without receiving any acknowledgment or reply. A poor service considering I already paid 10,000 thb for the year with 5 months left on the contract.
  3. Could Patriot pm me reference his comment about temple at Baan Kam Chanot. We're off on our monthly Isaan trip leaving Monday and I had planned on calling in there en route from Bueng Kan to Udon. Maybe you can give me a few more details in a personal mail which may seem inappropriate on the open forum. Thanks
  4. Thanks guys; yes the expiry date is March. EMS off to the Embassy tomorrow morning ..... and the endless changes continue.
  5. OK, so I got my yearly extension in my old passport last September which my local office transferred to my new passport last month. Then I noticed they wrote I needed a new extension in March which was the expiry date of my old passport. I have used this same office for 15 years and had many new passports, but never needed a new visa so early. They insist they are correct in their ruling, but I would like other members opinions before starting the process with the Embassy etc. Thanks in advance
  6. How many remember UBC whose directors continued taking 500,000thb salaries when the company was folding. They were taken over by TRUE who improved the service but soon became worse and basically dishonest. I threw them out maybe 7 years ago but recently relented and gave them another chance by taking on their all-in-one Internet, Wi-Fi, 3G, so many free channels package at 499thb. Unfortunately, they soon resumed their dishonesty by continually subscribing my phone to unwanted sites which charge for every unrequested message etc. which adds up to a 200 baht surcharge every month. However, a kind TRUE lady in Buriram gave me the code of *137 which stops the texts. But this procedure starts again within a week. Maybe they have something built into the SIM card provided with the package which automatically logs my phone into these sites; but I now watch carefully and insert the code quick as the messages start again.
  7. My wife and I will be at the Best Western 3 nights over Christmas and would like to have a nice dinner somewhere or even at the hotel. Could any local guys suggest anywhere who will be holding special events/menus over Christmas. I already contacted a wine-bar via Facebook but received no reply. Thanks in advance.
  8. Many of the Football League footballers are from Cameroon as are some teachers and, from my observations, they don't have any race issues.
  9. Not bad at all considering limited resources available --- should make progress with the right guidance. Mind you, seeing this I had to spend a whole hour watching the iconic and now cult original Jack Black track; and now even on Broadway and the West End. 'Fraid we won't see this standard of movie again too soon ............
  10. Thanks CB
  11. Thanks ib for taking the time & trouble to check it out for me. Looks like we'll need to wait at least 6 months to try it out ....................
  12. Sorry, I should have been more clear and said the other side of Mukdahan towards Ubon. It's maybe 20km before Nikhom. We passed it a few weeks back on the way home and should have taken pictures. I'm afraid that google street taken 15 months ago doesn't show it although the guest house at Nikhom is under construction. I'm amazed (disappointed) that yours is the only reply and hope you have some info ...........
  13. Apologies to all, I first posted this in the wrong forum so here goes again .... Does anyone have details of the new water park currently under construction on the 212 around 10 kms outside Mukdahan. Any information on planned completion/opening, accommodation etc. would be helpful. Passed there a few weeks ago and saw the new guest house now open in Nikhom, but too short on time to check out others around the water park or nearer into Muk. Thanks
  14. Yes yer right. Obviously not switched on today so I'll re-post on Isaan
