House for rent (sale?) Pimanchon One at Bueng Kaen Nakhon.

If anyone remembers  Big Dave  this is the house he used to rent many years ago. Later Carl Janowitz rented it.

The house is not visible behind the trees in the photo, but most of the houses look the same in this village. I think it has 4 bedrooms. However, before Dave, the interior was completely gutted and rennovated, so the layout is unique compared to the other houses.

Nice village. Nice area. I don't know anything about the terms or anything. Call the number in the photo. Only downside is the hostile neighbor across the street.

Getting to and from Khon Kaen / Khon Kaen to Buriram?

Any public transit options for Khon Kaen to Buriram?  Is there a VIP/1st Class bus by any chance? Hot air balloon?

Tks, lah!

Security Alert Ė U.S. Embassy Bangkok:  Attack in Yala Province, Thailand (November 5, 2019)


Location: Yala Province Security Checkpoint


Event: Major attack using small explosives, November 5, 2019


The U.S. Embassy confirms a large scale attack which used scattered explosives occurred on November 5, 2019 at a security checkpoint in Yala Province, Thailand.


Fifteen people were killed and four more were injured.  No U.S. citizens have been reported as affected. These attacks in Thailandís southernmost provinces do not usually target foreigners specifically.


As was the case previous to this attack, martial law continues to be in effect in the region.  In addition, authorities may implement a local curfew in response to the event. This attack, while larger in scope, fits into a general pattern of violence in the region, and does not seem to provide evidence of a new threat or change to the security environment.


Actions to Take:

∑        Reconsider all non-emergency travel to the Thai provinces of Narathiwat, Pattani, Yala, and parts of Songkhla (see related Travel Alert for Thailand here.)


If you must go, there are certain mitigation measures you should take.  Avoid the following:


∑        Military and police bases or convoys, as most attacks target the Thai security forces.


∑        Landmarks or social areas (e.g. temples, landmarks, bars, night markets), as ethnic-religious differences can be a nexus of violence in the area.


∑        Behavior that draws attention such as drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes in public.


∑        Traveling at night, when additional military checkpoints appear, and security personnel are on high alert.


∑        ATM machines. ATMs have been targeted in past attacks.  Instead, be sure to bring enough cash to last your entire stay.


∑        Local critical infrastructure sites, such as power stations.

Where to find . . . / Seeking Air Con Repair (2019)
« on: September 30, 2019, 04:26:22 PM »
The aircon in my bedroom is not blowing cold air.   My aricon service contacts are all stale now.  A referral would be appreciated.  However, unfortunately, I no longer have my English speaking assistant, so the guy has to have enough English just to get through a basic transaction.

Referrals much appreciated.

Tks, lah!
