    Ferry service across the Gulf of Thailand ?

    According to their website, it is just 1,250 baht...seems like excellent value for anyone wanting to bypass Bangkok...also, they are offering a 15% discount on all r/t tix through June 30, according to the same website's promotion section.

    Where to buy marum

    That's very kind of you. PM sent! (two PMs actually; the first I sent prematurely, by mistake!)

    wanting to learn basic south words

    I am pretty sure that's one of the words spilling out of my mo-in-law all the time, so will keep my ears perked up to try and catch it in action. Thanks once again.

    Where to buy marum

    Thanks Surfdog; I'll keep that as a last option as it's mostly supplements made from Marum, although I do see cuttings offered. However, my track record with cuttings sent through the mail has not been good. Maybe one of the big plant fairs like the one at PSU will have some.

    Where to buy marum

    Does anyone know where to buy Moringa oleifera , known as marum in Thai? The health properties of this plant are said to be really good. I just want seeds or, preferably, cuttings...
  9. It sounds like they are eager to catch Phuketitis...
  10. There isn't enough passenger traffic between the van terminal and the airport to justify such a project. You can get there by songtaew for 10 baht already.

    Where to buy coconut oil

    I finally got to check that place out yesterday. It is convenient to the Immy office, just a few clicks west. The store had a wide selection of coconut oils, but none were cheaper than you can get them online. The staff all behaved as if they really didn't want to be there. I was also in the market for real coffee. They only had Doi Thung, which was way overpriced. I don't understand why there is no place in Hat Yai to buy cheap coffee beans like they have in Phuket. Anyway, thanks again for the tip Stocky. If I find a better deal I will let you all know.

    wanting to learn basic south words

    Thanks for that. Will try to get up there. I have a friend in Pak Panang who can get them from Pattaya by EMS and one of his is nine feet high already..but there is something about sending living organisms through the mail that doesn't sit well with me...

    wanting to learn basic south words

    Thanks Surfdog...I am pretty sure that yaa baang is used in Bangkok too,,,I used to have a lot of students tell me that when I was blocking their view of the whiteboard. BTW, at that agricultural fair you went to did you happen to notice any avacado trees? I'd like to try growing one here.

    wanting to learn basic south words

    Another Southern word I learned today is namkheng bok, whicn means popsicle. In central Thai it's waan yen. I don't know if it is across the south or just here in Songkhla though.
