  1. Seems I never had that problem.... but using an eraser to clean up contacts a touch is an old 'fix'.... overdo it and any thin layer of gold there is gone. Had the cards for a long time? Keep them loose in your pocket? I actually just replaced mine as I think I left it sitting in some machine.
  2. Not a fan at being yelled at, but sometimes these drivers have got you by the short and curlies.
  3. I once booked via one of those little kiosks that were dotted around advertising cheap taxis to the airport. I think it was only 500 baht including tolls...some years ago. When the guy arrived he was expecting 700 baht plus tolls.... he drove like a maniac cussing out Pattaya 'mafia' all the way and refused to pay any tolls so remained on the lower deck. Another time we got a minibus, and we were going to Don Muang, they combined 2 trips that should have been separate, and we found ourselves dropping off people at various Bangkok Hotels in the awful pre-Skytrain traffic of those days with those having a flight booked getting extremely nervous. I think I suffered 2 bait and switches from so called taxis from 'departures' at the airport before I stopped looking for cheap rides.
  4. Talking to someone yesterday just back from Phuket.... dead apparently. Pattaya doing better.
  5. I was quite aware I was setting myself up, providing the loaded weapon etc..... it all adds to the entertainment even if I am the butt of it all.
  6. Many people wearing masks seem to position them below the nose anyhow, is this perhaps why? One I bought in Bangkok is my current favourite, it appears to have been cut straight from a fat girl's stretchy lycra pants and hardly impedes breathing. I bet you could get over a hundred masks out of a single pair.
  7. Perhaps due to the digging out and dredging that has been done to improve the capacity and catchment and diminish future supply issues....... naw.
  8. I have just deleted a post about tinned ham.
  9. STV from what I hear, they can stay 90 days straight and potentially extend for a further 180. With that duration of stay, get the flights in organized and soon fill the place up. Hope it is just Phuket, but of course after quarantine they can go anywhere.
  10. More info on this... https://www.thephuketnews.com/visa-extensions-approved-under-previous-amnesty-to-be-upheld-until-nov-30-77483.php
  11. For those in the UK.
