  1. Hi I haven't been to Thailand in 5 years and I will be back in November. Question I have is doAmerican atm cards still work on Thai bank ATM's ? The reason I ask that is that the world has moved on to chip and pin cards while america is the only country that still uses the magnetic strip cards. Should I get something like the Travelex cash card that has pin and chip ?

  2. Hi I'm planing on taking a very long tour of Asia China India Thailand but instead of buying a multi country ticket in the states . I was thinking it might be cheaper for me to just buy a ticket to Thailand and from there buy tickets to China and India. I would like to spend 3 months in Thailand and the rest of my time in the other countries and finaly returning home from Thailand back to the USA . Question I have is if I arrive in Thailand with a round trip ticket dated 8 months later from entry to return will I have any problems with immigration officials upon entry? Being that Thailand just gives 30 entry visas would they ask me any questions regarding what I'm planing on doing for such a long time between entrry and return?

  3. This is an invite to all the San Francisco crew to an exhibition opening October 22nd from 5-7PM at the San Francisco Art Institute's Diego Rivera Gallery, 800 Chestnut. Photographs by myself taken in Thailand, as well as the work of a Japanese-American photographer, Shie Urakami.


    Its nothing like being there, but it would be great to meet some of you guys, outside your board handles, in a "thai" context...


    cheers.. and hope to see you there :)



    I live in the Bay Area and work in San Francisco I'll drop on by

  4. A number of these dishes are not all that strange. You can find a number of them in America in any area with a large Asian are Chinese population. Duck beaks, Chicken feet, Black duck eggs, durian can all be found in the Chinatown where I live in California.With the exception of Durian most of these dishes taste pretty good. The author was Probably originaly from somewhere in the Midwest where there wasn't much of a Asian population.

  5. Actually nowadays all people have to do is walk by you and your card number is picked up by a mobile scanner they carry on there person To protect yourself from this you should cover your card in a secure sleeve.They protect your card from electronic eavesdropping. Check out

  7. Generaly California wine should have a higher Alcohol content then European wines 13,14 some even 15 percent due to warmer climate higher sugar content longer hangtime with grapes.

    That is a pretty low price for a California Wine in Thailand.The tarrif for imported wine in Thailand is pretty dam high,I think 80% so i am surprised at the price

  8. Dr Ladda at the Landmark Hotel near Nana plaza.Her prices are cheaper then Bumrungrad and St Louis.Her work is quite good had root canal work,crown filings and cleaning done for about a fraction of the cost of what I would have had to pay in the States.Plus she is a very nice lady honest and ethical.I once told her what my Dentist in San Francisco had wanted to do and she told me that I didn't needed to have that work done my Teeth were fine.
