  1. Electric bicycles in Chiang Mai - 3 questions

    Maybe you've already done this, but if not, one thing to be sure of is the height of the bicycle seat. If it's too low--which is often the case--raise it for proper usage of leg muscles. The tiring will greatly lessen.
  2. Delightful New Restaurant!

    Not intending to hijack the thread, I'm more interested in the helmet communicators. Can you briefly tell us what you have and where to buy it? Thanks.
  3. Accomodation and private school

    Keep in mind everyone that the student does not understand Thai. Only international schools with all-day English curriculum would be appropriate for the boy. Of course, the international schools also offer courses in Thai as a foreign language.
  4. Borax or Boric Acid in CM

    Here's a good article on how to use boric acid for ants: http://www.atticpestauthority.com/does-boric-acid-kill-ants/
  5. Regarding point C, solar panels: I've seen this place south of town, and it might be worth looking into. I don't know anything about the company, however. https://goo.gl/maps/2zEPLe8Hrzj
  6. In Person 90 day reporting

    As for going in person to Promenada, If you're unfamiliar with the procedure, you need to first check in at the 90-day desk that is outside. Complete the required form, hand it and your passport to the woman behind the desk for checking that all's in order, and receive a queue number which will be called by the clerk inside the building where you should be waiting with others. Be aware that the office closes at 12 noon for an hour. Arriving after 11 could have you waiting until early afternoon for completion of your report.
  7. Gall Bladder Scan Hospital?

    Here is a streetview of the clinic that elektrified mentions above: https://goo.gl/maps/8xuKhFQSbmC2
  8. Looking for Permethrin

    I realize that this isn't what you asked for, but in the past I've had excellent results with Hafif shampoo. The active ingredient is Carbaryl 0.6% w/v. It's effective not only on the usual hairy places, but on any area of one's body that may be infested and have that crawly feeling. One application does the trick. This shampoo is widely available at drug stores.
  9. Reupholster service in Chiang Mai?

    Lanna Cushion does very good work, and they're always busy. The shop is located in the northeast part of town. A map is included in their website--which is in Thai, but you should be able to sort it out if you don't read Thai. http://www.lannacushion.com/
  10. Ruamchok Supermarket Grand Opening

    From what I understand the store is not completely stocked, and won't be until August according to the woman at the checkout counter today. I found a few prices to be better than at Rim Ping or Tops, so I'll return. Shop prudently though, because some items were more expensive than at Rim Ping. Opening before you're ready is not the best way to make a good impression on the public, but that's par for the course here. I'd say give it another try if you were dissatisfied with the offerings when you first visited this supermarket. Or better yet, wait until sometime in August or later to see if it is more satisfactory. If indeed it becomes good competition for Rim Ping or Tesco Lotus across the highway, we would do well to support the newcomer, thus potentially curbing higher prices at the neighborhood stores.
  11. Help with finding Licorice in CM

    It's an ongoing quest in Chiang Mai. Right now I have some Australian licorice in my refrigerator. Friends who come from abroad always are requested to bring a stash of black licorice--the only flavor--to keep me in good form for a couple months.
  12. Witch Hazel

    So from this very brief discussion it appears that it is not available in Thailand.
  13. Witch Hazel

    Has anyone found witch hazel, the astringent, in Thailand. It's a very common product in the States (and most likely many other countries), but it must be banned in Thailand. Or not?
  14. Green book replacement

    I assume that the DLT is the registration office located near the Holiday Inn. Thanks for your help. Oh, and which police station would be appropriate for this kind of report? Thanks again.
  15. A friend of mine (always "a friend", never me) living in Australia has a motorcycle here in Chiang Mai. The registration expired in December 2016. He was sure that he knew where in his condo he placed his green book, and had asked me to renew the registration while he was back in Australia. I cannot find the book, and he's at a loss as to where it could be. In talking with him this morning he asked me to try to find out how to resolve the issue if the book is truly lost. He'll be in Chiang Mai again in a couple weeks, and he hopes to get this all straightened out at that time. Assuming the book doesn't turn up, how does one get a replacement green book? Thanks for all help.
