  1. Just curious, but what is your reasoning for wanting to buy instead of continuing to rent? The rental market in Thailand is always in the renters favor and you don't get locked into a single location in case the building maintenance is poor or the neighbors are undesirable. I feel like this is a western mindset that we need to 'own' something, I constantly struggle with this myself, but always open to hear other perspectives. Hi @TiT, our landlord is retiring next year and has informed us they are selling off all of their properties. We can either buy or move on, the temptation to buy is great because you will never own anything paying rent. our main problem is the horizon is getting further away.
  2. If you are referring to the school at, 75 Moo 9 ถนน สุขุมวิท 107 Samrong Nuea, Mueang, Samut Prakan, try the link below and copy it into the search bar. You will find several short reviews of the school. https://www.google.com/search?q=saint+joseph+bangna&rlz=1C1EODB_enIE954IE954&oq=Saint+Joseph+Bangna&aqs=chrome.0.0i355j46i175i199j0i22i30l2.23798j0j15&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#lrd=0x30e2a06c098e612f:0xfee6f9f11e4e7bea,1,,,
  3. In all seriousness, my husband reckons it will be an Italy v England final and England winning in extra time.
  4. What can i say @AussieBob" Football coming home"
  5. Interesting list Andrew, will give "East of Eden by John Steinbeck" a go and ordering it now with some other books from Amazon. Probably will have to wait weeks for delivery.
  6. An Amazing Vet, been watching the TV series for years as its on Channel 4.
  7. Fork and spoon are the main utensils, however noodles may be eaten with chopsticks, a knife is never used for Thai food
  8. Buddhists believe that life does not begin with birth and end with death. The belief is that every person has several lives based upon life that has not yet lived and learned and acts committed in previous lives
  9. Mission accomplished and had to share with my son, we will be back very soon.
  10. Thank you JamesE, going to visit it, is it open with covid 19 restrictions or closed, just asking to save myself the trip.
  11. I like those colorful Hawaiian style shirts and so much better than the normal of all white or all blue.
  12. Happy Husband and pleased to be proven wrong and he acknowledges it was not the best game of football and has pointed out there were good signs of improvement within the team.
  13. Ah no AussieBob and another day of him being devastated awaits me!!
  14. Started a Graham Norton novel "Holding" which was his debut novel a couple of year ago, he presents the Graham Norton Show on BBC1.
  15. Mighty England play early tomorrow morning our time and husband is very nervous about this match and reckons it will be another draw and England will finish 2nd in the group.
  16. Thank you King Cotton and just after scrolling back to see the conversation between the two of you and will do the uttermost best to adopt the approach.
  17. Hi King Cotton and have now finished this book and it was good in parts and just not my type of story. Iris is over eighty years old and suffering from heart problems, she begins writing the story of her life for her granddaughter Sabrina, whom she has not seen in years. She tells the story through flashbacks. The biggest surprise for me, was to discover Margaret Atwood had written the Handmaid's Tale. I have watched 2 seasons of it so far on a streaming provider.
  18. Did my best and failed again and at least it was 19 days without a smoke, will try again very soon and will not give up trying to give up.
  19. After putting my son to bed for the night, I will sit down and start to read “The Blind Assassin” By Margaret Atwood. This book was the Winner of the Booker Prize back in 2000. It is very literary and not too sure will I enjoy it and the book was recommend and loaned to me from a friend.
  20. England "Won" and we are going to get to the final "Football's coming home" Three Lions. Just after been told their next match is on Friday with a start time of 2am in the morning "Thai time is Saturday" Will not be watching and will cheer them on in my sleep.
  21. The most recent book that i have read was a work of romantic fiction by Marion Keyes "This Charming Man" I Loved it! Just love her character development-- stayed up late to finish it, as I needed to know what happened to each character!
  22. Good questions Andrew, the level of plastic rubbish around the city is horrific and had a look online for companies that recycle and there are a few listed with clear collection instructions. Is it a simple case of educating the population to use plastic less and recycle more often.
  23. Gutted, David and Andrew you both are putting me off flying and never considered what could be in the cargo hold and in a million years would have never given, whats under the floor a second thought, until now.
  24. We currently rent for the last couple of years and have moved twice since living in Bangkok. Saving hard and buying a condo or apartment is not to far off in the horizon.
  25. Thank you, Tjampman and we are going to give that a go later on in the week.
