    Was doing some impromptu laundry in a bucket,as laundry staff don't work Xmas day Took work jacket etc out of bucket so as to refill bucket for rinsing. Emptied bucket of dirty water into the toilet and watched as a pair of socks disappeared around the bend.

    I had it done after a heart attack last year. Three stents implanted, and so far so good.

    Good luck.

    No stent. I already have enough hardware in other parts of my body.

    Pretty good news. I was on effient, a strong blood thinner, plus baby aspirin. Off the effient now for a month.

    Watch what you eat, and lay off the booze and fags if you partake.

    Not content with a month of endless shopping and consumerism before Christmas, people are actually now going out to fight over a half price pair off socks in the sales.
    It's madness! I'm going abroad next year

    It's all mindless and unnecessary consumption and accumulation.

    Christmas package from home arrived.


    Or at least the customs slip declaring a 4Kg package with a value of 2,000b has, and I have to mope down to someplace or other and fork over 792 baht in duty and VAT.


    Or one of the local motosai taxi guys has to, at least.

    do they tax everything ? what about text books ?

    I spent some time recently looking to have some text books sent to madagascar in a frustrating exercise as amazon sellers do not deliver there

    so I contacted a freight forwarding company in the UK who I coud ship to and got a quote for 5kgs at 70 GBP , but they could not advise me on any extra customs costs

    I decided it was a better option to contact a previous colleague still working in Mada who lives in scotland and spend 52 GBP to buy him a bottle of carribean cask and have him hand carry it back

    What they tax is completely arbitrary.

    Having it addressed to a Thai, with their name written in Thai, sent by a Thai name, marked as a gift may help.

    Same here. Seems if it comes international mail, there's a modest handling charge. If it arrives DHL, it can occasionally be taxed more than the value or, more often, not at all. Crap shoot.
