  1. Who thought up this bizarre name, "red cars"? It's a poor description and anyway what's wrong with "songthaew", or if you must, the Pattaya name, "Baht Bus"?
  2. Bring back till-dawn opening hours at Thermae, you know it makes sense for Thonglor precinct.
  3. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of corporate shysters.
  4. My lunchtime wrap (ห่อ) went up this week from 7B to 10B, a 40% rise. The meh kah claims I get more for my money but I'm happy to pay anyway; farmers need all the support they can get, although most of the money goes, as ever, to the traders and wholesalers.
  5. Old Doris in the middle looks like she's packing a rod under the table.
  6. This is a pdf in Thai of the relevant law from February last year: http://www.ratchakitcha.soc.go.th/DATA/PDF/2561/E/035/12.PDF The paragraph defining "ธุรกิจการให้เช่าอาคารเพื่ออยู่อาศัย", or loosely, "Business of Renting Buildings for Living" states that the "ผู้ประกอบธุรกิจ" or "Business Operator" is bound by the Act if operating five or more "หน่วย" or units; other operators with fewer are simply "encouraged" to follow the law (555). As stated in post 3 above, and this being Thailand, in the case of family-owned, private businesses of this nature, I would take that to mean a little chicanery will easily circumvent the law. In the case of a commercially run condo or block of Thai-style flats, for example, I would say not so easily.
  7. Can't say I've ever had a problem in this area in four decades; the only difficulties are with clothing sizes and with the prices of some imported items, both of which, with a little planning, are easily mitigated.
