  1. Thanks for your writing but ....

    have anybody any clou what to do when his partner pass away. Where you have to go who must be informed what have to be prepared what are all the steps; or you count on your family.

    In Europe I know but here ??

    Maybe there is someone who knows and can write it down.

    Thanks Frank

  2. Hi,

    We are doing our Isan wedding in March and would like to serve some Western wine or Champagne for the dinner with the close family.

    Does anyone know of a store(s) in either Ubon Ratchathani or Mukdahan which sells some western spirits?


    If you are living in Ubon than it's not far to Sisaket where you can visit Toni's Shop. German Wine and Sekt(sparkling Wine )

  3. Well, I guess this will be bad news to some 13,000 people and good news to around 20. The Surin provincial government in it's immense wisdom has decided that after 10 years, The Farang Connection is too close to the Wat to be attracting thousands of visitors and has withdrawn it's drink licence. Actually it has taken the drink licence off all pubs, restaurants and genaral dens of iniquety from everyone within 50 meters of a Temple. ( where of course in Europe a lot of the real good beers are brewed) Where will this madness stop? First, they ban the sale of alchohol on two of the busiest weekends of the year,( which should cut tourism by half) now come up with this ridiculous ruling. I am not even sure if it is just Surin or wether the ruling is nationwide. What do our members think?

    Hi Martin,

    I'm sorry to read the bad news and I hope your new location will not create an simular problem.

    Now i'm worried about : what will happend when the goverment will follow all there rules. Because so much i Know not selling alcohol is not only banned close to Wats it means to any other kind of church or school too.

    So next time all shops and pubs have to close. Right !!!???

  4. Thai election forces 2-weekend booze ban


    BANGKOK: -- No alcohol will be served to expats, tourists or local residents in bars and restaurants over the next two weekends nationwide due to the oncoming election.

    The first dry days will be 14, 15 and 16 December, pre-election days for a few million Thais who registered to vote early.

    Thaivisa has been informed that no alcohol is allowed to be served nationwide between Friday 14th at 6pm until Sunday 16th at midnight.

    Elections on the 23rd will mean no alcohol will be sold from 6pm on the 22nd till midnight on the 23rd of December.

    Practically this means two or three dry days in the two weekends ahead, although some tourist areas tend to be lenient once it's past 7pm on election day.

    Please be aware that local rules could apply. Big hotels are not likely to be affected.

    there is the rumor, that there is a bikerweekend in Sisaket at the 7th of April.

    Regards Frank Sisaket
