Still on dial up

Sawadee Khrap

I am still on Dial-Up, finally got TT&T MaxNet broadband signed up but they have yet to get a clear signal to our house.  Router worked but no Internet signal – their working on it now.

Lot has happened since the last post.  I will post on each separately in the future when the Net is back up – but for now just a teaser.

1. IMG_2542Mohammed came and left – he said this was the most memorable vacation he has ever had and was totally pleased – I’ll have some photos to show – and introduce his almost guide, Ben    I’ll explain later. 

  That’s Left to Right,

 Ben, Mohammed and Nu



2. House was completed and we started to really settle down – snaps to follow – really love the new place and have already had several friends over for dinners – really feels like home.  Everyone loves the kitchen.


3. IMG_2552Nu got a new motorcycle – a 1 yr old Honda 125 cc Wave – great buy, 6 mo warranty and 2 yr Insurance for theft and damage – for 26,000 Baht.  He got a neat “Pink” helmet too, part of the deal. 

Many thanks to our friend Robert Morgan who directed us to his friend and owner of a local Honda shop – without him we could not have found such a deal.

Now Nu is now ready to start school – Monday Nov 3rd to be exact.

Got it home and I tried it out – bad mistake – i was wearing slip-ons and about a block from the house I crashed because my shoe got stuck and I couldn’t use the brakes – couldn’t turn and went right into a curb and fence – bent the basket on the front of the bike and damn near broke my toe – nice gash and bruised but not broken.  Naturally, Nu has been riding it without problems.


4.Off to check out a Ladyboy contest tomorrow – Nu won’t be able to enter this one but we want to see how it goes, what type of talent there is, and get a good idea on what it will take to win such a contest in the future.  I’ll try to get some shots to show  – hopefully they will also have the broadband working over the weekend so I can up-load some images.





One thought on “Still on dial up”

  1. Wow, it doesn’t take you long to move and get settled. Happy the move was more painless than your motorbike ride! Just confirms what I told Vickar that I would wear my tennis shoes when we rode. Will be happy to see the kitchen pictures, hopefully they will get your connection lined out soon.

    Nu’s first day of school today – so we are testing the timing, I have a meeting this morning and tomorrow a massage, so we will know how to plan and what time we have to awake. AdSL working so I can start adding posts – and my foot is healing – Make sure and wear shoes – it’s too easy to injure your feet on the bike – even a slight skidding will rip up your feet — it would also be best to wear something on the arms – I am going to post a pic to show how they dress here – 85-90F weather.
