    Does Food Go Bad Faster In Thailand

    best with beer :-) <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I recently became a two-fridge family. The girlfriend's green stuff in her fridge, my beer and Marmite in the other.

    Long Time Thaivisa

    I leave the 'puter on all day, so I can see what's going on most of the time. I guess that means I'm on-line about 16 hours a day, but I'm not always at the desk, looking. I would say 5 or 6 hours actually looking.

    Happy Birthday

    Happy Birthday to His Majesty King Bhumipol Adulyadej.
  6. Appears you have 5 jars left, use wisely. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Well, actually, I just double checked. I've got 6!
  7. round up to a 100bht per quid - hate uneven numbers <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Don't want to be greedy <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Either would be great for those of us with income from outside Thailand! ! Wouldn't want to be earning a Thai salary, however high, with the inflation those exchange rates would bring........ <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Yeah! The cost of Marmite would soar...
  8. For the last couple of months I've been getting rid of some verrucas and corns from my feet. They've nearly all gone now, but I was wondering how common they are given the Thai custom of taking off your shoes/sandals/flip-flops and walking over somebody else's clean or dirty floor. I never had a verruca before - neither in England or Bangkok - but they appeared after a year of living in Phuket. I am now quite loathe to slip off my flip-flops if I enter a "clean" Thai shop or house as I don't want to go through the same pain as I just have. Anyone else have a problem with them?

    Car Registration

    I understand, but I still think it's worth asking your insurance company if they can help. I believe most insurance companies will do the yearly registration (900 baht?) and get the compulsory government insurance (Por Lor Bor - 1000 baht?) for their clients, so they should be able to help. Have a look at this old thread: http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=34790

    Car Registration

    Two identical threads merged. Don't start a new thread just because no one posted in your first one. Why don't you go to a motor insurance company and get them to do it all?

    Pedal To The Metal

    Yes, they're in Bangkok - at the top of Wireless Road near the express way entrance/exit and elsewhere. They're also in Phuket at the major traffic lights. I actually think they're a good idea because you can see from a long way back if you've got enough time to get through on green. So you can judge whether there's any purpose in speeding up a little to get through. And you can also give up trying to get through if you're a long way from the lights and there's only a few seconds left. But the best aspect is, when they are red you can see how long you have to wait. So there's no point in sitting there, drumming your fingers on the steering wheel thinking "when are the dammed lights going to change". Just sit back and relax.
