    Was your motorcycle ever stolen in Thailand?

    Then I was confronted with the question of what to tell the condo management since they were obviously concerned about a motorcycle being stolen from their secure parking garage. Do I lie or do I tell them I forgot about leaving it parked on Lang Suan for 3 weeks? I told the truth and bought the staff a lot of fruit for their troubles.

    Was your motorcycle ever stolen in Thailand?

    A few years ago I went to get my Honda Wave from my condo parking lot. It wasn't there and I assumed it was stolen. I only use it once a month or so sometimes and I had no idea how long it had been missing for. I reported the theft to the condo office. A week or so later I was walking down Lang Suan after shopping at Central Chitlom. and I remembered that I had parked it in front of a 7-11 last time I went shopping there and then taken a taxi home Maybe three weeks previously. There it was and the noodle seller who sets up shop there told me she had been watching it during the day since I left it there.

  4. One strange guy on Craigslist has been selling slightly obscure cars like Opels or VWs for years. He pretends in the ad that the cars are his and he has owned them for awhile. Clearly just working off commission for a car lot somewhere. Uses different phone numbers. His ads always have weirdly placed capitalization. I think he is legitimately selling the cars, probably, just lying out hos ass about their history. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  5. I read somewhere in their postings that the expected monthly premium would be 3000 baht per month for 500,000 baht of coverage. I guess if it's someone's only option that might be worthwhile. Anybody young or up to 60 or so can do much better than that so the price automatically means it will only attract older high risk members. It still seems like such a small amount of coverage even at a government hospital. (I guess all that has been pointed out earlier in the thread.....)

    Android TV Box-Where to Buy?

    Thanks for all the suggestions! Someone sold me a spare box they had and it's working perfectly. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Android TV Box-Where to Buy?

    I mean the room has WiFi. The TV is definitely not smart. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  10. Any suggestions for where I can buy an Android TV box in Chiang Mai and suggestions on a brand/model? I know I could order it online but I'm in an Airbnb with an old tv. The TV does have WiFi and an HDMI port though so I can watch Netflix if I buy a box. Sent from my SM-J710F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Tramadol or similar in Chiang Mai

    I recently purchased Tramadol at Boots, however it was the extended release kind and was expensive at 200 baht or so for 10. I'm not sure if they sell the regular kind. I assumed they were selling extended release because it had less potential for abuse. I did have to sign a register when buying it.

  13. That is lot of salt. I guess Villa's pricing is correct: http://www.elcharromexthai.com/product-category/335456/Flour-Products-Group.html Seems a strange decision on their part. Maybe it takes them longer to make them for some reason or maybe it's because they have no competitors here for the larger sizes used for wraps and, as previously posted, that's what restaurants use. This is fun to play with to figure out how how diameter affects surface area without doing the math. 8 inch is 50 square inches and 10 inches is 78. http://www1.udel.edu/CIS/103/pconrad/07F/lect/11.01/pizzaCalc.html
  14. I noticed at checkout today at Villa that my El Charro tortillas were 200 baht. That can't be right! https://www.honestbee.co.th/en/groceries/stores/villa-market/products/2251893 I remember when Villa decided about ten years ago that a can of refried beans cost 225 baht and it took months for them to correct it.
  15. Should your children inherit the remainder of the lease are you expecting that they have a legal right to register the second 30 year lease renewal if the land owner refuses? Or that you have the right to register the second 30 years if the land owner refuses to register it?
