Rex its a simple bus change at their terminal.  If you use someone else, beware of the cockroaches and broken seats......

Happy Bar is good, Chillin Bar is good.  Eric's can be okay at times. Never heard of the bar mentioned above.  Dave's blues bar is good as well.  Especially for breakfast.

I would simply go back to America, as i am totally happy living in my own country.  Only here because the wife spent 10 years in America and now its her turn to live here in Thailand, then back to America in 7 more years.  Can't wait.

I always stay in Midtown When i am in the Big City.  Never really cared for the whole central park thing.  Usually i was there on business and my first order of business was always a dirty water dog.

Discuss Shopping / Re: New TOPS Supermarket???
« on: April 24, 2018, 06:31:12 AM »
I saw a new one in Kosem Posai a few weeks ago.  A large actual Tesco, not an express.  This one came with KFC,  i got excited drove down there to discover the KFC no have chicken yet, and really no farang food at the tesco at all.  Eh but still improvement over nothing but a wet market i guess.

Services for the home / Re: 3BB Fiber Promotion

I keep the kids on the lower 2.4 Hrtz as their IPADS and phones don't have the 5hrtz capability.  Now my phone along with the Mrs has this capability so we are on the 5htz network.  Its just less clutter up there, but if your around concrete the signal will degrade as the higher hrtz has problems with walls and such. Does not affect the main PC as i run that with a cable. 

WIFI 2.4 vs 5 is not really something anyone should really be concerned with, if you want the 5 use it, if not the 2.4 hrtz works just fine.  Its just crowded, but if your in a concrete house you might want to stick with the lower hertz anyways.

Holidays & Festivals / Re: SONGKRAN
« on: April 05, 2018, 06:56:05 PM »
we are already up in the village for the songkran holiday.  The village has maybe two days then the rest of the time its for the kids and at the temple.  I don't leave the house the first two days, neither do the kids.  Once the parades are done i take them up to the temple as the kids enjoy the water fights with the other kids.  Pretty tame up here, which is why we come.  I set myself up with internet and such years ago up here, got air con, good kitchen etc.  So i don't mind coming up here for a few weeks a year. 

I don't know how i would do it in Khon Kaen, except just stock up on food and stay home.  To many drunks on the road to even attempt to leave the house except in the early morning maybe.

Eh tag me all you want then u can see what the wife already knows i am a boring cunt hell bent on abiding the rule of law and enjoying myself.

Open discussion / Re: What will Thailand be like in 20 years?
« on: March 18, 2018, 11:50:36 AM »
I dont know much but i believe khon kaen will ve a trade hub for asean.  Yes it will lose its old small town flair but peoole up here are moatly a decent bunch so i hope it maintains that isaan atmosphere.  There is only one way and that is forward all we do do is get one the train and ride it out or gdt off and relocate.  I for one will ride this biatch out and see where it goes.
