Nakhon Sawan News


Recommended Posts

Billd try it this way. On Sawanvitee with immigration behind you and Big C on your left go through the lights, carry on along Sawanvitee till the lights at the Aramis Hotel (not sure if it is the next lights or next but one), turn left here (sorry do not know the Soi number) down to the bottom (the park), sharp left and you are there.

It looks as though it is the road after Wimanmaen Road. The alternative would be coming from the north, turn left just after the Chinese pavilion on the lake just after the route 117 and it will be around the 6th road on the right according to Google Earth.

Nakhon Sawan is a little behind the times with Google street view as it doesn't seem to work down there. Oddly enough out in the sticks where I live it does.

Sadly my GPS failed the drop onto concrete test earlier this year.

Now I figure that I can find it.

Cheers

Bill

Seedy, I agree with Bill above. In practice this forum covers various items relevant to Nakhon Sawan and Kamphaeng Phet and nearby areas. As far as I know it is the only forum that covers these

But then many of us would not know what is going on in the area. Just because it says Nakhon Sawan news does not only mean Nakhon Sawan. From Wikipedia Nakhon Sawan (Thai: นครสวรรค์) is one of the

Mine's actually 21 years old.  I was looking at new Pajero  Sports four years ago ($,$$$,$$$) before my wife died but I really don't see the need now .  It's actually in good condition with over 500,0

Are you another NS GCCOF or does your post contain humour. Either way I think only you get it. Wanna explain who Dave is? Edited by bim

Ahh hence the noodle plugs, Anyway wishing you all a Merry Christmas. Hope its a good one for you and your loved ones.

And to you from all us upper class in this great place K.P.P.

Sorry to say my festive season is starting in a bad fashion tomorrow I will have to visit N/S have to go to the visa office need some info.

Then it'll be Big C and the Walk, am looking for a coffee maker the ones that use the capsules. I don't hold out to much hope but as I'm there will have a look see anyway.

Phitso was as their name implies the pit's in that direction the plaza was as good as nothing. Anyone going there to get any western food forget it, the place last Saturday was empty of peeps not to mention Waitrose goodies or even Cheese/Beef for that matter.

Just had an email from Dave so he's still alive and not gone down the pan, due too to many N/S Noodles. Stand by I'm sure he'll come up with Turkey flavoured ones soon.

H/M.

Fred.

Fred I am sure I have seen those coffee makers once. Cant remember if it was Index, The Big Tesco near the Honda Garage, Home Pro or the big electrical place at the top of Fairyland. I am almost sure it was Tesco as they used to sell the capsuals. If you like a good medium cheese Makro sell these big blocks of Anchor cheese. Nice. Turkey flavoured noodles. Now that sounds nice. Damn im hungry now :) Also told that Makro will do good Beef Grade A beef joints but need three days to order.

Thanks for that I'll have a look in Tesco tomorrow they have a big one in the Walk if I remember right.

I don't have a problem with getting goodies from Makro in K.P.P. Rib eye frozen in Makro or I go to Tak they have great Beef all are very top notch providing you cook them fast rare on a griddle pan. Or Cheese come to that, it's just that Tops in the Plaza used to sell all sorts of stuff, alas not any more.

Not that I went there to got to Tops, it was the Robinson I wanted to go to. They had the coffee makers but their coffee capsules were out of date by 3 months. So left empty handed.

I was up in KPP today and there was no lamb available for some reason.

There were freezers full of pork, chicken, beef and even one of exotic meats like crocodile, reindeer, frog and other weird meats but lamb, no way, Jose or Somchai.

What or where is KPP. Also Fred where is Robinsons and Tops near Nakhon Sawan? Also Makro in NS had Lamb last week. Even Goat? Yuk wink.png

KPP is Khampaeng Phet.

I think Fred was talking about Phitanulok where there is a Robinsons and Tops is the supermarket within Robinsons which itself is in the Central shopping mall if I remember correctly.

I will be down in NS (Nakhon Sawan) next month and probably buy the lamb then.

Goat is nice curried Ghurka style with lots of Ghurka rum. Next day it is advisable not to get too far from a toilet. Stock it with something to read and some cold drinks as you may be there for a while and many times.

Well, seems like the bunting will out at the end of January then, I will be away in Patters around that time welcoming tourists from the UK.

In the BIG C megga-complex I usually do the DQ and skip the rest as well, although the Yamazaki bakery next to Aunntie Annes is much better for availabilty now so a visit is a must. They have been doing a lot of refurb in the complex as well. The whole site is owned by Vittetheep ( V-Square), in Sawanvitte just past Fairyland and they seem to woken up to the fact that the Walk looked a lot better, so things at the Cinema end have been spruced up.

Meanwhile down by the bridge, new supports are being erected for the southbound lane, northbound will have to wait but for now a token jesture, the footpath where the northbound supports will go has been demolished, no signs of course, just dont go along there in the dark or you could do yourself a mischief!

Turkey Noodles are all the rage for the next few weeks complete with stuffing ( 500bts round the back).

Whilst rumours abound to my demise I can ssure you they are ill founded. I have been running in my model locomotives in the spare room on the project which all Thailand has been waiting for...........High Speed trains running in Thailand...........with no de-railments!

Some things have not run before and some have been stored for over a year so some lubricating has been required, but, am pleased to report that today successful runs have been completed by an HST set from the Western Region of BR, Class 50 "Hood" and "Formidable", Deltic "Crepello", :Pinza" and "Ballymoss". For steam buffs "Duke of Gloucester", "Guilemot", "King George V" "United States Line" will hopefully be underway tomorrow and shortly "Spitfire" and "Bideford". Along with wiring the points I have been rather busy, so if anyone wants to come and give me a hand anytime or have a look, let me know ( dont forget to have a valid visa ) and for those of a certain disposition the buffet will be open charging the usual BR prices!

Off to Makro tomorrow to buy a turkey.

Nice to see Dave back again. I bet his signalman's jacket has got a trite dirty. Having to have a day or two orf while it's sent to the cleaners.

What did I tell you can always rely on Dave to come up with Turkey Noodles at the right time of year.

Yes you right Bill Central 'Plaza' was the place I was referring to.

I don't know why they Makro was out of lamb, had loads yesterday I nearly got some but the ATM was buggered so other things like Beef rid eye had priority.

Right Bim you haven't heard of K.P.P. The best place to live in the WORLD allegedly.

Dave and others from down there have been trying to sneak in for years, sorry to say you do require a local visa for same.

One day if your a good boy Bill might sponsor you, it'll more than likely cost a few beers when you meet up though.

Tip.

You could try that old ploy of telling him if he doesn't he'll have to spend time with Mrs H/M (my wife) and her coffee or should that be mud, has been known to work in the past.

H/M.

Fred.

Bim you should be in bed at this time of night. Don't forget you have to help Dave put up the bunting ready for us upper class arrival tomorrow.

H/M will be very displeased if it's not there as usual.
