  1. Ummm What's wrong with my "home" country? Nothing, to be honest. A tad more expensive than here, but manageable; a tad colder, but used to having four seasons, even if one of them was very cold; my wife and I decided to move to TH for a combination of factors, not least of which was the fact that there was basically ONE season. NO snow. No ice. No sliding through and intersection instead of stopping. Ignore all the rest of the potential reasons - that one was enough to bring us here.
  2. The myth that Thai drivers ignore photo-radar tickets is exactly that - a myth. Some may be forced to pay within weeks, some might have 11 1/2 months. But all will pay eventually since their car can no longer be registered if there is an an outstanding, unpaid, ticket.
  3. Chiang Rai prepares to retake defunct mine

    I have heard of the landslide that claimed many lives. Many of my neighbors think it was diamonds they were after, but when asked to confirm it, all said "shelite diamonds". I had not seen the video previously, so thank you, rebo. My father-in-law remembers it vividly, saying that he had several friends die there.
  4. Chiang Rai prepares to retake defunct mine

    Anyone know where this mine might be?
  5. Bank Auythuya account open or closed

    Oct 27 the Other Newspaper The Finance Ministry's Fiscal Policy Office (FPO) has drafted a bill providing for the transfer of money from people's bank accounts left idle for 10 years or longer to the government coffers. The bill was aimed at making use for the public interest of money left idle in accounts with banks and specialised financial institutions for a long time, at least 10 years. It would cover deposits in savings and current accounts, money in Thai and other currencies, held in the names of people living in the country and abroad.

  6. Nah - since he refuses to give you the prescription even IF you buy lenses from him. My experience.
  7. Where can I buy fireworks in cm?

    It seems fireworks and fire-kites have been banned again this year - unless you have the approval of the local headman - something that headmen cannot give until the government issues notional "guidelines" at some point in the future. To quote the Interior Ministry, anyone caught using fireworks, firecrackers "or other prohibited items" during Loy Krathong faces up to three years in prison and a 60,000-baht fine.
  8. Where to buy Lime Pickle? Anyone make it?

    Patak's Lime Pickles - in mild or hot - at Top's.
  9. Paypal for cash?

    ummm sorry, but a PayPal transaction is NOT final. It can be overturned quite easily by the "buyer", claiming duresas or all sorts of ailments.
  10. Downtown across from the Sinthanee Complex about 150m from the big Toyota shop. That was several years ago, but I think they went auto only... worth a check.
  11. Car key with chip....need a copy.

    Tesco-Lotus Kham Thien, upper floor near the washrooms is a small kiosk with a fellow selling many models of electronic keys. I bought an extra for my Innova (yes, with transmitter. The code was copied from the old key). Cost? 690B
  12. And you would this how?
  13. Arizona Joe's Restaurant, in Kad Farang

    Now there's a kazillion calories, and for breakfast. According to Heart.org, "nearly 70% of American adults are either overweight or obese.". Hmmmmm
  14. We insure 2 vehicles with Thai insurance - both with full-time GPS/cameras. Just renewed - positively NO deduction for cameras. "Who told you that?", we were told...
  15. Rimping has turkey again!

    Pre-cooked turkey breast is not what I would consider a "turkey". Ours will be a lot more expensive, but then its imported. From Turkey.
