  1. Perfect. Thats what I was shooting for. The problem was there were 2 almost identical cans... one was evaporated (what I needed, and what I bought), and the other Condensed. I needed evaporated...The other can seemed much heavier and thicker contents, so I assumed that was condensed. Was fairly certain because the only english wording on the whole thing is "Carnation Evap Extra"... but wanted to be sure. Making my grandmothers recipe Pumpkin Pie... and really dont want to fuck it up lol Thanks MM
  2. My worry is that a Thai would call it cream even if it were one of 4-5 different types of milk.
  3. Ya thats the problem.. too many "like" products. :/ - Need to know exactly... the wrong stuff would screw things up.
  4. Need to know what product the photos below are... I know what I need but not sure if this is it lol. Don't want to give any hints tho as I don't want anyone guessing... a wrong guess would ruin a perfectly good pie Frosty Sent from my Nexus One using Tapatalk
  5. Champagne does not enforce it. Always people smoking in there, at least in the afternoon.
  6. Really? they closed? Too bad if so... was a really good meal. Out in the middle of nowhere tho - so it wouldn't surprise me. Worst location in the world for someplace like that. Would have made a killing if they would have been in the tourist zone.
  7. Well shit. no bars open, and shite playing on TV. Sounds like we're in for one hell of a pre-songkran bash :/
  8. American Rib Company on Theprassit road does a good rib... and so does Hard Rock Cafe.
  9. Very nice looking condo. Good luck with the ad.
  10. Been watching this thread but not put my 2 cents in yet.... but will do now. My first experience at lone star was terrible... steak ordered medium rare and came out well done and more like beef jerky than steak. The onion rings were ok... but not great, and the potato skins were just plain nasty - obviously cooked much earlier in the day (many many hours) and microwaved before they were served. At the time I could not get internet on my phone so I didnt even check in, but related the report to a few friends here... Now... that all said, after reading Evil's review I am willing to
  11. So... me and a couple fellow BMs decided to swing by and take a look at this place today (heaven, not the yard bowling or whatever that is place). It is very very very much NOT heaven... or even remotely heavenly. First, there was 2 girls sitting when we came in. I think one of them may have been young enough to not have been my mother, but I kinda doubt it. After some yelling about 6-7 more came down, all about the same age group and varying degrees of fugly. Then... the prices. Originally he shows prices of 2000bt and 2500bt... but after some discussion in Chinese (thanks to Gai
  12. Hi Guys, A good friend and fellow BM here is finally making the plunge and moving over here. He will start the process of getting his retirement visa this month, and asked me for input. I had a great contact in the USA for issues like this, but since I moved here she has retired and is no longer available :/ So... how do you guys that have done this recommend he go about it? Do it himself, or hire a lawyer... come over here first on a tourist visa or get the O visa before leaving the USA (as far as I know he is supposed to get the retirement visa in the USA before coming here). Any
  13. 1 or 2 of them look doable... but the last 2 times I was there I saw no girls worth even talking to. The promotion is a good idea... but a better idea would be to get more girls and let word of that trickle out for better results. For me, right now there is absolutely no reason for me to go there instead of Kinneree, where there are 30-60 girls at any given time, with many of them doable.
  14. Not sure farman, but I have used them several times now and am very happy with them. I highly recommend them - They have been on time (within 5 minutes) every time they have been here (which has been several times now), and no problems at all.
  15. If you still have it, gimme a shout. Just building the 3rd PC for my house and could use it as a second monitor for that. Small, but its for guests lol. :) Just shoot me a PM if you don't have my number.
  16. Its only one... I forget his name, but he visits cherry bar from time to time. Adam knows him.
  17. Ya they have those several times a week on Soi Khow Noi, but have never once even stopped me... If I have my visor down they wave at me, but when I open it they pass me thru. Not sure if they recognize me or maybe they are just not looking for falangs.
  18. Thats exactly right 99% of the time. I think I have had to show my passport page once, and that was on Suk road in najomtien, just before the turnoff to Khow Chee Chan. That was a random police stop, but since everything was in order he let me go with no fine. All the rest of the times either I was not asked for anything at all (usual), or only for the tax paper and international drivers license (which expired in 2009 but they have never noticed). Seeing both of those and without even reading either, they usually just pass me thru.
  19. I keep a copy of my passport in my motorbike with my international license and other paperwork, but I have not carried even a copy of it around with me in 3 years. In the last 4 I have never been asked for it except during minor traffic stops when I am with my motorbike... I have been present during police raids of clubs, after fights, etc but never been asked.
  20. 125 baht is on the high end of "normal" for walking street now. 120 is the norm for the majority of the gogos... If I remember right it was 140... same as bkk... but after some feedback he dropped the price. If he has a good lineup, its worth it IMHO.
  21. I have had this happen 3 times so far since I have lived here, and didnt get my card back from any of them. First they require your passport.. no problem there. BUt they (or at least the 2 banks I had issues with - 2 cards from 1 and 1 from the other) not only required that the signature on the card be there, they required that they be able to read it and that it matched the name on the card as well as the passport. On my first card the signature had worn off - was gone... the second and third times the signature was there, but nobody can read my signature - its a bit of a scrawl, and they
  22. Yes MM, it is. My bank daily limit is only $400, so I can't take advantage of that.. but wish I could, considering the 150 baht per transaction fee.
  23. Just noticed the yellow one on Soi Khow Noi today gives the option to take 30k... I thought the physical limit was 20 bills (20k) at all ATMs... but apparently they are getting newer hardware.
  24. I agree. In a car, assuming he drove a car, it would take more than a hour of driving to get to your place and back if traffic was moderate. If heavy, it could take longer. Can't fault him for that, especially if he was having a busy day.
