Nakhon Sawan News


Recommended Posts

Some big girders on the central bridge over the river today, just waiting for lads to lift them off and figure out where they go next!

Makro was disaster, got the turkey but when I asked them to cut in half for me, they looked at each other and giggled, then played the ace card which will take ASEAN by storm and propel them to the top of the table............"no can do!" They will find that in ASEAN those that "can do" wins and its back to the farm you my lad! Give us back the trucks and houses, into the rice field again, even though the streets of N/S are paved with gold the wind of change is blowing again.

Meanwhile more success on the railway front as the HST set is now fully up speed and parked in platform 1 whilst out comes "United States Lines" and runs perfectly today after thr service of the last few days, wonderful news and no de.reailments, no late runners either!

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

Hey Nong, "no can do" They probably thought you only wanted to buy half a turkey!!!

It once happened to me there when I asked them to cut a leg of lamb in half until I explained that I wanted to buy the two halves!!!

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.

Had goat for the first time only last month. Cooked overnight in a low set oven with herbs, spices and rice. It was very nice although I do think lamb has a slight edge over it.

Fresh too. It walked to the truck and fought its way in. Came from Kamphaeng Phet of all places.

Even so, our sphincters weren't hot to trot the next day, so it was worth the effort.

There is a goat farm somewhere close to Khampaeng Phet and live goats were about 3,000 baht. I have his card but it is all in Thai.

H/M update on N/S.

I arrived at just after 10am my chum had been in the Visa office for 10min: prior to me and was second in line with a ticket No: 1

I was dealt with sharpish only wanted some info anyway + I was with Mrs H/M and she puts the fear Buddha up anyone.

My chum alas waited over two hours to get his Visa processed. He does do it via a pension guarantee with paperwork from the Embassy ETC. This seems to be the problem as all this stuff had to go into the other room to be sorted now.

Just a heads up if anyone is doing the same allow plenty of time.

Right now the downer there was NO I repeat NO bunting put out for our arrival dash pore show.

I left my chum in the office and went shopping to Big C the bread wasn't ready in Kamikaze seems that they have that sorted just before 12am so don't go early. Had a look round Big C nothing seems to have changed, a lot less flies in the food hall but I still will never eat there (Food at best rubbish)they also didn't sell any coffee makers. Off then to the walk must say a different kettle of fish. Index had coffee makers not the ones I wanted they seem to be only available in BKK.

The upshot was I got one that uses coffee grounds or beans once ground. Must say on getting it home it worked and is still plodding on does do the job well.

It was then back to Big C via getting some petrol pork (Didn't have Diesel Duck) + rice for lunch. by this time it was just coming up to 1pm and their car park was as usual the pit's. Eventually I get parked and picked up the French loaves must say that their selection of bread seemed to be very good have tried there F/Stick this morning (After being frozen) it held up quiet well. Not the best I have ever had but must be somewhere near the top for Thailand.

N/B give their toilets a miss they are sorting out the ones down stairs so your only left with the ones on the top floor only took Mrs H/M 30 min: to have a pee. I did get that time without her so there was an upside.

I wont go down the traffic or the bad road route suffice to say there's not been any improvement on same.

The only good thing that has come out of our trip other than the Coffee maker (Can get same here) + the bread, is Mrs H/M has refused to go there N/S ever again, so thank you all for that.

Oh nearly forgot maybe the peeps that are in charge can put up some lights on the cranes that are all over the bridges might be something worthwhile over the festive season.

Happy festive season to you all.

H/M.

Fred.

Hey Fred, the reason for NO bunting on your visit to our fair city is cos you are not royalty or even upper class, but just a self proclaimed Hunt Master with a clothes horse and one dog, so you shouldn't really expect any special treatment should you!

Com'on admit it!!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and all posters!

I didn't want to tell all but I am royalty by marriage Mrs H/M is the great great?? grand daughter of one of R##a V ladies !!! Has many photos of G/Mother in the Palaces, she is also in many books on same. So that's put that right.

As far as the H/M bit goes I have yes one personal Dog 'Pepsi' the hounds are in the gate house or nearby.

I could have invited you lower classes to our Hunt Ball to prove all, but sorry to say that you would never get a Visa to visit the HERITAGE CITY of K.P.P. Now there's a thought is N/S a Heritage City I do know that Uthai Tani is.

Don't bother to reply just looked it up it seems it alas is not, maybe because there nothing worth going there for, well except Dave's Turkey Noodles & train set.

Just wouldn't be cricket to have you mob lowering the tone anyway have heard that you lower classes drink beer out of bottles I believe that's the case anyway.

So you'll just have to take mine and others word for it.

If your lucky I might post some snaps of us in our Royal Hunt Regalia.

Tip.

Don't even attempt to try and sneak in Boxing day, the full hunt will be out then looking for inebriates trying to sneak in. You MIGHT if your lucky hear the sound of Tally Ho if you listen carefully that's of cause if the hoards of lorries there have a day orf.

I did need some cheering up so thanks for the Joke.

Fair city indeed don't you mean the Town/City that full of pot holes and smoke belching traffic not forgetting grey Diesel coloured trees and Dead/Brown grass in the centre isles that separate the 6 lane motor way that goes right through the place. I wont go down the bridges road that seem always under repair.

Ending on a bright note your clock by Big C almost tells the right time only the second occasion it's ever got close in all the years that H/M has been unlucky to travel through.

So next time Bunting will be required it won't have to be done that often, H/M as luck would have it will only have to go there once a year.

UPPER CLASS.

NA ROYALTY.

H/M.

Fred.

But thanks for the good laugh today!!!

Hmmm! Royalty indeed!!!

Talking of books I have nearly finished my latest one called Death by Winter, all about peeps living in Blighty that have been driven out by the weather. I might send you a free copy. No bugger it you can pay.

Right Royalty.

As you know most Thai ladies marry us Farang because they think we have loads of cash.

But they don't know we/I had an ulterior motive as well.

Having done my research on what I would get out of a relationship I settled for no not good looks if you had seen Mrs H/M you would agree. But Royalty as befits my station in life. Although it's by marriage also a little in the distant past it's there all the same.

Real Royal blood albeit a trite diluted.

By the way you don't have to call me Sir, Lord, or anything along those lines, His Majesty will suffice. That way I wont have to change my headings from H/M.

I will insist though on the Bunting being put out next time.

H/M (Royal)

Fred.

I thought that you finally agreed that H/M actually stood for Happy Moaner! You seem happy most of the tme unless someone that you now "ignore" happens to post and you certainly fit the bill for the second part.

Confuzion Bar was closed today.. Despite the recent post it was now open in the daytime midweek. Go there around midday. Makro has what looks to be some one off Farrang goods. Paxo stuffing, Colemans Horseraddish and Apple sauce, Bisto Gravy. More interesting was the Spam, Turkey Spam, Smoked Spam and Bacon Grill. Normally a staple for the not so well off in the UK but an expensive item here. And the real find for me as a northerner, Bisto Chip Shop Curry. Come on I know you want some. ;)

I was quite happy being a Happy Moaner, but it was brought to my attention that peeps down there thought that Bunting wasn't necessary for his royalness.

Now I see that Bill's trip looks like it's going to turn into a disaster Noodles Bill Noodles.

Unless you want to go down the Monty Python route 'Rout'

I was musing to myself this morning as I sat outside drinking coffee just before 6am in the freezing weather 66f 18c today EEEEEEK, how lovely it was to be here at festive time.

No crazy shopping paying double the price for veg +++, getting presents, putting up decorations, having to walk around freezing my Butt orf saying merry Christmas to every bugger most you don't know anyway.

Then after the festive dinner of Dry Old Bird 'Turkey' settling down to watch yet another rerun of the Sound of Music or the Great Escape.

This is a big thank you to all that have allowed me to be here, maybe there is a Buddha well for me there is. Even Mrs H/M seems to not look that bad. Na Just guesting on that one.

I do hope that all you Farangs have the same thought's, what ever your problems here it would be a dam sight worse back where you came from.

Wishing you all a very happy time over the coming few days.

The Happy Moaner.

AKA H/M (Royal).
