  1. This must be a story which was not verified. Thai's don't do these sorts of things, only farangs.
  2. In 2011 it started raining in Chiang Mai on the first day of Songkran, and that was the year of the big flood.
  3. I saw nothing in this article which indicated there were only 13 students in the pick-up. Only that 13 were injured.
  4. It is not just the Red taxis that have people hanging off the back. As I was driving home yesterday afternoon from picking up my daughter at school we noticed a green school bus(pickup) with( I counted) seven students hanging unto the bumper. The driver even had to stop once because the kids were not holding on good and almost falling off. Darn kids never hold the right way huh.
  5. I think they should be moved, so that is one vote for it.
  6. 1. Bangkok, Thailand Bangkok's Chinatown is one of the best city districts for street food. It's impossible to avoid street food in Bangkok, where sidewalk vendors in different parts of the city operate on a fixed rotation. Some take care of the breakfast crowd with sweet soymilk and bean curd, others dish up fragrant rice and poached chicken for lunch. The late-night crowd offers everything from phad thai noodles to grilled satay. Chef Van, of the French brasserie 4Garcons on Thong Lor Soi 13 in Bangkok, favors street food in Chinatown -- known locally as "Yarowat." He recommends hoy tod nai mong, a crisp fried mussel pancake: "The chef and owner makes them one by one on the charcoal stove." Another favorite: Kuay tiew kai soi sai nam phung: "It is noodle soup with chicken wing stew with young egg and pork intestine! I've had it since I was a kid."
  7. he appeared to be driving approximately the same speed as the others who went through the camera
  8. Hey, it was the squirrels fault. How could I have done anything as an electrician? The door was only bent a little bit so it would not close. Squirrel, kid, blind man, whoever; I was just down the road drinking my lunch, so Mai Pen Rai.
  9. And, so all the other companies selling dash cams are no good. Because they aren't made in (big brothers) Chinese company.
  10. To apply a different perspective to the quoted numbers of this article I read the full report and found that there were 176 countries surveyed and there seems to be 103 countries with a better corruption index with only 74 countries having a more desirable one.
  11. This article certainly ties in nicely with the previous one---- World scorns Thai lies on rights, democracy
  12. travelereastwest I think the hospital may not have done anything wrong here just as they claim. unclesteve18 I would recommend Rajavej highly, and assure you Dr Will can be taken at his word. He said that the poster of the footage was the relative of a diabetic person. It was the diabetic's own personal needle that they had already used at home to inject insulin. He stressed further that despite international regulations that hospitals could use needles up to five times for insulin jabs his hospital had a policy of one use only for injections of all kinds.
  13. How does feeding the fish damage coral reefs?
  14. Public Health Ministry encourages Thais to make babies with cringe-worthy campaign It's pretty simple guys, the Chinese want more babies so the Thais want more babies !!!
