Congratulations!

Recommended Posts

All I know, is that when I breakout my best Julie Andrews impersonation, and start singing about my favorite things, I’ll have to find a way to include our new mall in there.

As for the whingers who complain of things being too expensive, I think what they really mean is that they cannot afford much of what is on offer. As previously stated the prices are not different from other comparable shopping venues in Thailand.

Ones personal finical status is not really the fault or responsibility of the mall.

My Dear VF, I guess we inhabit different planets in the earths space time continuum. I've never been really fond of Malls anyway , find them a very alien environment personally. As for complaining about the prices, its all relative. I always wonder how things are so expensive when compared to the staffs wages here personally. Just Guys making observations .

Never once thought they couldn't afford the stuff in there. Funny how we are all wired differently. :(

VF is right... If you cannot afford it don buy it. Even more.. If you know the mall is expensive, don visit it.

Long time ago I read something here on the forum, Edison is so GD expensive... Well.... For the price the crap they sell, they can keep it. I visited E several times, never was satisfied with their quality. I went to CM Airport Plaza to get my stuff. Don have to do that anymore. I am Happy!

But do me a favor, don tell me McD has no breakfast or made a mistake with the cheese on the burger or other BS I read here.

I think that the american family groups that were seen are often associated with missionaries. At least at Airport Plaza in CM and Rimping they seem to be the most obvious customers because aparently they live western lifestyles but with the help of servants while ministering to the starving masses.

Dont promise what you can't deliver unless you are in sales.

I like CMj's rationale and statement. Could not agree more plus he is the OP who made a positive post that was

underscored by a load of negative criticisms. I could not ask a simple question of why there were so many septics without

stacks and attacks of it. Does this mean I have to renounce anybody I consider a friend and who is a septic just to conform

for the whingers? Sorry not my style.

My money is on CMJ for an outright win.

Actually that was my thought but I did not want to post based on previous responses.

At least you don't have to wait until an Aussie speaks to identify him. He is the one with the brim of his hat turned up at one side. They do it so that they can get the chip onto their shoulder you know! :D

Having slung this social hand grenade.... I quite liked Central although Best Beloved wasn't impressed with the Som Tam in the Thai eatery!

This discussion has become interesting and amusing. It seems to be what my Kiwi and Aussie friends refer to as "taking the piss" out of eachother, which is always good sport. If it hasn't made you smile, you're taking it and yourself too seriously and you need to give yourself a hug - or join the Girl Guides as my aforementioned friends would say!:D

Give it up. Trying to cover the fact that you led with your fingers by typing rather than with your brain by reading the posts correctly is amusing. Aforesaid fingers on each hand probably being your only friends bringing you the comfort you so desperately crave. Calling them Aussies and Kiwis is wierd. Are your toes German and French?

The fact remains that Central has opened. It provides a new and more interesting focal point for meeting with a source of goods never before found in CR with ease and the opening brought all the regional expats out in droves. Shook the trees / cages.

Some people like it some dont. While that is human nature and change is very hard for some people, maybe they see Central as a change for the worse

as big city, more larger corporations that they have been running away from have finally arrived and CR is no longer the backwater they craved

I know that I can now purchase the half dozen items I like to have (note: not need) without going to Chiang Mai. Now all we need is a Kinokuniya and I could be happier. No need to tell me that CR cultural and purchasing demographics dont support such luxuries. Look at the posted reaction to Robinsons and Tops! Anyway they provide online searching and delivery so consider that a rasberry.

The only thing I found worth of buying was Castello Blue Cheese and some nice bread!

Three days later I was back for more Castello Blue Cheese but it was sold out.

Talked to a friend today and he had been there for three days looking for more Castello Blue Cheese and no luck.

It must be some more people here in CR that found out they had some decent cheese.

Hopefully boss of Tops find out there is some interest for good CHEESE here in CR so they will increase the number of tasty cheeses!

But TIT, probably not. Castello Blue Cheese will probably never be seen here in CR again!

Try Han's deli behind DaVinci. He has a nice Gorgonzola for I think a reasonable price. The only problem is my son loves it and wolfs it down b4 I get a chance. Back to the mall. I Ike it and look forward to the Cinaplex getting some decent movies, not to mention the incredible scenery that is all free.

I have a good Thai friend, a young man in his early twenties with a wife and baby, who was paralyzed about 3 months ago, and the doctors say that he will never walk again. I have seen his X-Rays and know this to be a fact, since I myself early in life had a similar injury from which I eventually recovered. They say as well that he will be lucky if he will ever be able to do much more than talk, move his head, and shrug his shoulders. He must wear a diaper and use a catheter - a truly sad situation. He is getting a little extremely weak elbow movement now, and I am hoping he will eventually get most of the use of his full arm and wrist (extremely doubtful his hands and fingers). If he could ever be able to move his whole arm, he could be rigged up to manipulate the switch on a motorized wheelchair.

Therefore my question is, do you or any of you others in wheelchairs, know if there is a place in this area where a new or used motorized wheelchair might be found, and about what they cost?

Here is a second-hand chair for sale, although not in this area. Still, shipping is easy in this country. You can check it out here: http://www.bahtsold.com/detail.php?id=73623

I have no idea of the quality but the price seems reasonable at first glance.
