  1. "... I wonder if you guys would have an idea of somewhere to hang out, feel safe, maybe swim and gym or whatever, to pass the time as pleasantly as possible. Would prefer to avoid a hotel, but if I must could I stay in one just paying for the one day? After all I won’t be overnighting there."
  2. I believe the suggestion is that the body must expend more energy to manage the excess calories contained in the durian.
  3. Do a search for the Chuwi Hi8 SE. It is a Chinese tablet rooted with Android AOS 8.1 with only the Google Play Store pre-installed, along with a handful of required system apps. It is an 8" tablet with Quad-core MT8735 / 2GB RAM / 32GB eMMC / 2.4G-5G Dual WiFi / Bluetooth 4.0. It will never see an OTA update because it's rooted so can't pass Safetynet, but it's cheap, at about ฿3600.
  4. My understanding is that turmeric is not readily "bio available"; that is, the compounds in turmeric break down too quickly to be of value. There are studies that purport that adding black pepper, which contains the alkaloid piperine which inhibits the metabolic breakdown of turmeric compounds. Furthermore, fats and and oils added will facilitate absorption from the gut. I make a daily concoction using turmeric, black pepper and olive oil, adding boiling water. It's not unpleasant. I'm not neither a doctor or scientist, and can't offer evidence, but in my subjective experience after using this for two years, I no longer experience any discernible pain from inflammation in my knees and hips, something I've struggled with for years.
