  1. Recently my total at 7-11was 80.25 baht. I pay with 101 baht expecting 20.75 in change. She gives me a 20 baht note in change saying they have no satang. She asks me if I want my one baht back. I say yes. She gives me 1 baht. We were both amused.
  2. Any kindles in bkk?

    That's a reasonable price! O just bought one from the USA so don't need it. Of it has special offers you can call or message Amazon that you are in Thailand and they will turn off the ads for free. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. LG TV repairs in Pattaya

    The theory is that baking it melts and resets the solder that has cracked on the motherboard. Seems to have worked for lots of people. I'm not sure about the blow dryer.

    If all your ports are bad try baking the maInboard. Seriously. Google bake LG motherboard. I have one good HDMI port left but when that one goes it's going into the toaster oven.

  9. I started as a local hire expat lawyer at 80k for an international local firm 20 years ago. I had about your level of experience but no languages. Try the real international firms, then the local firms doing international work, then the local Thai firms and finally the chains marketing to foreigners for visas etc. Good luck!
  10. The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

    An earlier comment referring to Sizzler. I was not surprised to learn recently that Minor Food Group which holds the Sizzler franchise in Thailand and also owns The Pizza Company etc. etc. owns the largest cheese factory in Thailand. They produce all the cheeses for their own restaurant and also sell cheese to other restaurants and food processors.
  11. The myth of melting ice and rising seas

    Just curious, do y'all think people who smoke cigarettes are more likely to get lung cancer. If not, OK, fair enough. If so, when and why did you start believing that? I'm just trying to understand science and scientists and all that.
  12. Teclast tablets - any thoughts?
