The breakfast is buffet.
A lot of food. It's actually a good selection. But, can you eat 500 baht worth each?

I wonder how many had pay to the order of  "American Embassy Bangkok". With the quotation marks on it?

That's the way they put it on their website.

I agree with your assessment, so I have removed my replies to this post. It was never my intention to cause disharmony on this forum. My first reply was intended to be on the comical side. Never did I suspect it would hit such a nerve with the new member. Maybe they are coming over from TVF. I don't know. It is for this reason I stay away from that forum.
I apologise if I have offended or upset anyone.

Will a pool table even fit in that place?

Just so everyone is clear on the date.

This explanation makes sense to me.

The budget must really be tight at the state department these days.
 They not only cut down on the number of visits for the Outreach Program.
They are even cutting the number of hours in half.

 "Makes Sense"
Cut the number of visits so more people show up at this one. Then fool them and cut the hours in half.


Open discussion / Re: Driver's License Renewal
« on: June 02, 2018, 06:55:05 AM »
Renewed my drivers license last week. It wasn't due for renewal until July, but they said I could do it early.  Went from my two year to my five year. My wife renewed hers also.
 What I needed was 2 copies of my yellow book, two copies of my passport, my old license's. I had two. One for auto and one for motorcycle. Filled out a piece of paper with my signature and they did the rest.  Also, a medical certificate obtained at the local clinic. Never saw a doctor. Some girl working there took my blood pressure. It cost me 100 baht. "what a joke".
That's it.
No video, no eye test, no test of any kind.
Paid my money, waited to get my picture taken at another desk.
That was it. Maybe about 45 minutes at the most.

Now good for another 5 years.

Apparently there is going to be an open market on the park side of the lake. It is being paid for by the Chinese. Most of the cost of the whole project is being paid by the Chinese.
This is from my doctor at BKK Hospital. Take it for what it's worth.

Not to be difficult, but what is the reason to share post? All of my facebook friends don't even live in Thailand. I am not sure if they even care what trivial stuff goes on here.
 I don't think "Nookie" will deliver to them either. roll [size=78%] [/size]

Where to find . . . / Re: Gas Barbecue Grill
« on: May 10, 2018, 12:31:37 PM »
Global has 2 burner gas grills. They look like a Charbroil clone. Can't remember the price.
I brought a 4 burner stainless gas grill with me from the states. It still looks brand new. Doesn't rust . There is a place in Udon that make stainless gas grills. Not cheap, but will last a lot longer than the Charbroil type.

The only Songkeaw I have ever heard of, is the Buddhist Temples up north.

I could be wrong. I have only been coming here for 45 years. What do I know?

The way I see it.
If these companies are willing to invest in Health Insurance companies.  It kind of signals which way they expect the

Unaffordable Care Act to go.
