Makro- Chiang Rai

Recommended Posts

If its the Gif's with Biff , my chicken Legs & those ladyboys Sven. It was a misunderstanding; maybe we can come to an arrangement. what about 1000 baht for destroying the evidence :)

Biff, the Aircon in Makro do seem the same price as elsewhere, they do occasionally have some great offers on some of the not so well known brands. of which I have a couple.

You should consider one of the portable ones.

Yeah I suppose you have to go in there regularly to get those offers, how are those

not so well known ones you have? I'm thinking/hoping it's like tellys, pretty much all the same on the inside but some more expensive than others.

Had a portable one in the UK (yeah i know, it was hot for one day and i had a brain fart) and it was ok, but so <deleted> noisy when the compressor kicked in. OK for the day time but at night it would wake me up doing it's impression of a fridge on steroids every 10 minutes!

@Svenian, sorry for 'swiping' at you, sometimes it's hard to tell when a post is meant in a lighthearted way :wai:

Yeah, I heard you had it Hot for a couple of days. We did too. The portable Job I have is reasonably quiet, If I can recall , Only used it once; It'll be ready for the next heatwave as will yours :)

The drone of the compressor is heaven anyway, when its 40 degrees in the shade

Ah yes, 40 degrees, well, it never quite reached that here :lol:

I had mine a couple of years ago, last time I moved, it didn't. This summer, due to my visit's to Thailand, I've been emulating the old fella from Ban Sob Kham who wanders around in a big coat and a bobble hat in the mid-day sun! :lol:

Not the correct topic, I know, but as good as any and better than starting a new one:

It seems to me AND my wife that the quality of Pepsi and Coke has fallen dramatically. Bad tastes in both, something missing. I have always thought Thai Coke sucks anyway but it seems a lot worse now.

Concerning the 1.25 liter bottles of both Coke and Pepsi, we keep getting bottles that don't seal well and go flat so quick. Didn't used to be that way.

And while it sounds like the same issue, it isn't- About a month ago, Pepsi finally got rid of a run of bottles (1.25 liter?) that had deformed tops where the cap/lid couldn't possibly seal. They got past that but it took weeks for them to sell all of that crap. Of course, it should have never hit the market. The top ring of the bottle where the cap/lid actually seals it looked like it had been melted and was uneven. But even with the top of the bottle corrected now, both Pepsi and Coke lost the carbonation a lot quicker than is normal. I think they switched to crappy caps/lids, maybe.

But the big complaint here is, neither taste good at all right now. Anyone else noticing this?

I always liked Coke best in the original glass bottle. Not the same taste in a can or a plastic bottle. Same in Sweden, US, UK and in Thailand.

The worst Coke is the one they sell in Mc Donalds etc where they mix it themself. :bah:

I prefer a cold beer before any softdrink, no additives, just the old natural refreshing drink that origin from the mead the old vikings invented.

:huh:<_<;)

Glass is way better. But those little bottles of Coke zero thry sell in Macro are way to heavy to carry upstairs. I generally have to settle for drinking the plastic bottle stuff in a glass glass. Improves the taste a bit.

Hello everyone

Have any of you seen a "western" style spice rack for sale?

I am looking for a new one for my kitchen.

I need the style that already has the spice bottles and it holds 20 or 30 spices.

Thank you.smile.gif
