  1. " the role of the political elites is one of the most important factors in moving a country from authoritarianism to democracy. " Really ??
  2. " on his return from a European trip next Tuesday, June 19th " haven't read anything about this momentous event.
  3. It would be terrible if the water or electricity supply got interrupted, I really hope that does not happen.

    anyone have any experience with ali express

    I am thinking of buying a garden cultivator for circa 4000 baht including shipping from AliExpress. Does anyone know if I will need to pay customs/ import duty on top of this figure? Many thanks.

    Pre-filter for home water

    I have the same problem with our village water. I installed two filters one where the village supply goes into my holding tank and another on the supply to the washing machine. The first mentioned filter is black every month and has contained birds feathers as well as the usual mud, but then the water is dirt cheap at at 6 baht/ 1000 litres. I used these filters from LAZADA and also replacement filters from them as well. https://www.lazada.co.th/products/housing-10-4-i111884617-s114479341.html?spm=a2o4m.searchlist.list.3.32ef5996tpKXjO&search=1
