  1. I was rear ended on Sukumvit one night. The pickup I was driving had 1st class insurance, so when the plod came to talk to me I just said "Insurance man coming". He was happy with that, did not have to deal with a farang. A minute or two later he came to my window and handed me the ID card of the other driver. This is odd I thought. A bit later insurance man came to dealt with everything, I gave him the ID card In the mean time the other driver had called home and his mother had turned up. They came to the car and asked if we could have her as the driver. Parents owned a hotel in Naklua and thought they were important enough to bluff their way around this. Insurance saw things differently. I signed the paperwork and was on my way. Got a phone call 10 minutes later to meet insurance man at the police station. It turned out that the driver was not licenced and not old enough to drive. Had to make a statement to the police, the insurance had the pull to get the kid prosecuted.
  2. I wonder how an animal like that gets proper exercise? It is cruel keeping it locked up, even in a house with a yard there would be limited chance for it to exercise.
  3. I thought it was relationship advice being sought.

    The Ashes

    Jos Butler run out, 4 wickets and 106 runs is the equation
  5. VAT was reduced at the time of the Asian Currency Crisis of about 2000, it was supposed to go back up and is "reviewed" every year or so. Needless to say it always too sensitive to restore to correct level.
  6. Security managed to use their radios, that is about it.
  7. Just had a couple of fillings and a clean at Dental For You opposite Tukcom, 2300B. The cleaning (900B) cost more than the fillings because a lot of build up. Getting a crown, 6/8000B(?) will have it installed this afternoon. The first stage with moulding and lots of grinding was OK the dentist used pain killer when I complained. 2 visits about 3 days apart for the crown. Was quoted 8K but they only asked for 3K as half payment, maybe the quote included the cleaning and fillings too. Will know better after today's visit. They take credit cards, which in my case is good as the card I use does not charge for overseas use and is giving a better exchange rate than I can get for cash. ** Added in** Went in, new fang installed and out again in under 20 minutes, 3K baht lighter. Was told not to eat for 2 hours, so off to the Beer Garden for a while. 2 hours just completed as meal arrived.
  8. Poor soul, they have to go and visit mummy and daddy. I would have thought a trip to buy some new underwear would be first order of business.
  9. That lot hit Jomtien a couple of minutes ago too.
  10. @Thai Spice The fruit trees you mentioned will grow, but not produce fruit worth eating if any at all. Most of those trees need certain low(ish) temperatures for a few weeks to activate the conditions needed to produce fruit, the temperature required varies from species to species. This is why the fruit are not grown in the tropics and need to be imported. They will make very nice ornamental trees but not producing fruit trees.
  11. Great news. I hope this keeps coming. BTW you are allowed to a little american with the hyperbole and tell the world it is Fucking great news!!!! Or The best day ever!!
  12. Just been on a resurface job for local council here in planet Perth. It has been upsetting the locals with disruptions for the last 2 months. It does not come close to that standard. It looks pretty now, but I am sure we will be back in the not so distant future.
  13. 5 days 18 hours, but who is counting
