  1. My Taxi to the consulate is tomorrow. Some friendly guy previously said I should get of on the right side. Could anyone give me some more hands on advice here of what to do?

    My first rice cooker - what do I do wrong? (it sticks in pan)

    I appreciate all the answers. I'll try with less water than the instructions/markings in the pot and I'll try to rinse the rice 3 times instead of just 2. A couple of you mentioned that it might be the material (that it's non-stick). If that's the case, and this is normal, I can't for my life understand what's the purpose of a rice cooker of this sort is. Again, I appreciate all the feedback. I will try it one more time and then consider it a failed purchase.
  3. Hi, I bought my first ever rice cooker - https://www.lazada.co.th/products/sharp-11-ksh-d11-i124706351-s130659310.html - and I've now tried it twice. Both times there's decent enough of rice sticked to the bottom, which makes the whole thing equal or worse to a regular pot (in terms of washing time). However, I'm pretty sure this dual-university-degree nobody (me) simply ain't doing it right. Would you guys mind helping out? 1. Rinse the rice 2. Apply water according to instructions "1 cup of rice - pour water to the "1" mark in the pot" 3. Hit on - eat when "cook" turns to "warm" The only change up I've made was to rinse if even more and once I also left it on at "warm" for a couple of minutes. (The first time I pulled the plug when it was cooked). Normal rinse/high rinse or/and normal cook/cook+warm produced layers of glued rice to the bottom. So - lets please remember this is my first time ever using a Rice Cooker. - Is it supposed to "boil over" like this? Pic. - Could it be the rice brand/type?

    SF Cinema + AIS Promotion - Help?

    Cool. I have a pre-paid 6 month data-plan with AIS so I guess I qualify. Are you familiar how I go about to use this promotion? Call a #? Show my phone to the kiosk?

    SF Cinema + AIS Promotion - Help?

    Hi Guys, I'm a avid moviegoer and I just signed up for the SF Cinema Club. It shaves 20baht of every ticket. Hehe! I just saw this poster. Could someone give a translation/explanation of the AIS+SF Cinema promotion? https://www.sfcinemacity.com/promotion/promo-251 http://www.ais.co.th/privilege/details/sf-cinema.html
  6. Excellent support from you guys, as always. When I'm reading the website it says I can apply for Visa Day 1 and pick it up the day after. What is your hands-on experience of this, or what have you heard on the board? I'm looking to do a tight schedule with arriving on the sunday evening, applying at monday morning, picking it up at tuesday afternoon and catching a plane on wednesday morning. My bank have a written and stamped/sealed statement saying what my balance is, as well translated the balance in to THB and USD. It's not a "computer printed" statement with my transactions. I guess a bank seal would be sufficient, yes? ?
  7. Hi, To give you a background I'm on a 8 month trip to (mainly) Thailand and I'm about to finish my first 3 months on a Tourist Visa + Extension (60+30). I'll take a flight to Ho Chi Minh City, stay for 4 days and apply for a new tourist visa back in to Thailand. My "ultimate" ticket out of Thailand back to Scandinavia will be ~ 5months away at this point. Will that be sufficient to show at the embassy, or will I have to buy another ticket showing that I'm leaving within 90 days? If I might also ask of your attention that my other documents are complete: 1 x Passport 1 x Visa Application (Printed from the HCMC website) 1 x Photo 1 x Flight Ticket in Thailand 1 x Flight Ticket out of Thailand (5 months "later") <- Point of thread 1 x Copy of Condo Rental / Place of stay Bless you,

    Sugar Free Sodas/Drinks/Squash?

    I really appreciate all the answers, especially when you provide photos which are very helpful when I'm not familiar with all the brands ? I found this at Big C that seems to tick all my boxes: It's a mix/syrup that has 0 calories on the box. I'm not looking to make "full dosage" (which I don't even do in Sweden with my local sugar free mixers) - I just want to add some flavour to the water, and no calories. If you guys find anything else please update the thread - and I'll do the same! ?

    Webshops (English) with Free Shipping?

    Thanks for all the answers. Of course there's a thing such as "Free Shipping". A bunch of companies run a deficit because of the shipping cost, and if you care to listen to any of the investor calls the management sometimes outrightly says that they need to subsidize shipping because of competition.
  10. Hi, What companies/websites in Thailand are in the lower end of the price range and offer free shipping? Couldn't find what I needed in Lazada ? Thanks! ?
  11. Hi, I'm looking for some sugar free alternatives that I can mix with water. It's very popular in Scandinavia where I'm from but I'm unable to find some here (probably because I can't read the tickets on the bottles). Can you guys throw me some brands/pics? ?

    Dishes 101 - Help a millenial

    Hi Guys, Doing my first 8 month long stay and just checked in. All great. I'm from Scandinavia where the running water is drinkable. So - I guess this is a funny question - how do you do your dishes here? 1 Clean in running water + dish soap 2 Dry with cleaning cloath 3 Put on a dry-stand All good? Went by BIG C and didn't find the soakable dishcloth I'm used to. Most things seem to be cotton or material that attracts dust (forgot the name) - and perhaps isn't suitable for water+soap? As the topic says - help a millenial ;)

    AIS - 6 month a 6 Mbps = 1800 baht

    I'm happy it worked out for you. To prepare my Airport arrival next week - did you activate the package by the link I provided or did you find a #number-#-to-#press-#and-#call? ? Or, did you activate the package in another way? Thanks!

    AIS - 6 month a 6 Mbps = 1800 baht

    Thanks for all the feedback guys ? Excellent. Last year I arrived at the airport and went to the AIS kiosk with the intention to buy a tourist sim, top up with a balance I had in mind and make them help me "activate" a internetpackage I had researched beforehand. There was a lot of "does not exist" and "can not do" "only have tourist package". Anyways, with some talking I asked them to just top up and I went online to google the codes my self. Luckily it went just fine. My Q's are: are there any downside to buying one of these "tourist sim" without any adjacent packages? Sim as a Sim, right? Is there something else I could ask for? Because, even if the previous mentioned idea of ordering online is very well intentioned I do need to get online ASAP.

    AIS - 6 month a 6 Mbps = 1800 baht

    Hi, I found this package (pic) very affordable: https://m.ais.co.th/ontop-package-myais Is it just for me to buy a sim, top up 1800 and buy it? ? Any tax? Can't find a #Code to dial - anyone knows? (in case that link doesn't work) Are there any other packages that are immediately more affordable than the above one?
