Makro- Chiang Rai


Recommended Posts

Not sure we need this topic in the Rai but here it is anyway.

We shopped there today. Today was the first time I have found can openers there. Have looked many times and always none, but today they have four different models. I bought a decent one.

They still don't have any cheese cutters/slicers.

Brian had recommended some frozen pizzas from there. I am not sure that we found what he mentioned but I bought a box of three that are "pre-cooked" and can be heated in the microwave. Have seen them before but was always afraid to try them. Today, 159 baht for the package of three 9 inch pizzas. Tried one of them already. It was better than the pizza at several of the pizza establishments in town. I won't name them here. These frozen ones would be a little better if I had an actual oven and if I added a few mushrooms or other items but still was plenty good for Thailand. I'll add green peppers and mushrooms to the next one. Cooking time is 13 minutes at 200 watts for a fully frozen pizza, less if it is partially thawed.

Edit: Changed cooking time from 3 minutes to 13 minutes to correct my typo.

They come out pretty well in the 990 baht fan forced oven they sell. Though why would you want to cook in ChiangRai. The Rimkok resort we ate at yesterday will stop us eating for at least 24 hours.

Glad to hear that you tried it, Harry and glad that you liked it. And the price of the buffet is right too, isn't it?

I might buy the little oven you speak of and see how I like it.

All this talk of pizza is making me dribble!

Well, you know the rules here in the Rai. Choose your thread wisely! whistling.gif

Rules! What rules? The only reason I moved to CR is because it was lawless, I'm off!

Well, it is good to see that you are following the "I quit" rule, if not the others.

But I'm sure you observed the dribble rule being put into place yesterday.

However, it is raining cats and dogs here right now so I'm not sure exactly how the "Dribble" rules applies.

I'm a fan of Macro, for newcomers to it, go to the counter as you enter and ask for a temporary card.

Kandahar, I've seen cheese cutters made from a board and a piece of piano wire that works as well or better than any bought one.

I'm sure a man of you mechanical ability could knock one up in ten minutes. :)

Yes I did, I'm just jesting as I'm sure you know. I'm actually quite fond of a bit of dribble myself, my baby dribbles, my dog dribbles and, after a couple of Chang, even I dribble.

I'll try. Let me find a piano first.

Then let's all agree to throw the dribble rule out, unless it is a serious thread. Who votes which way?

Hear, hear.

Okay. That's one hear, hear from Stu and the same from me. The count is two to zero. The polls are closed. Back to the old (newer) way. Sorry mumbo.

I think I've found a piano. I'm going to make several cheese cutters. It is part of my hobby work here at home. First one goes to Scea, whose idea it was and the second to my wife. If anyone else wants one, let me know on here, by e-mail on my profile page or by PM. I'll let you know when they are ready. If I can get jubby or VF to buy just one at the right price (wink, wink), the rest of you folks will get yours for free.

Edit- Oops! This thread is still on the home page of the Nation. So, sorry to say, this applies to the Chiang Rai TV gang only. My wife would beat me up if I started actually shipping things across Thailand and so would the government.

CM Harry, if you stop by again, ask me about cheese cutters.
