    Losing an argument and gaining a dryer...

    The problem started back in the states a few weeks ago. We were visiting my brother's townhouse (it ain't like a Thai 'townhou') outside of Denver, Colorado. Anyway that story later.

    Ok, the old lady loved the smell and softness of the clothes that came out of my sister-in-law's dryer. Ok, cool, but we got the sun...

    Now, we are back in BKK and the old lady is on a mission... Here we go. I had gotten rather aggravated about the wife buying drying shit. I said "go ahead and then you can bounce on me'.

    Big mistake, as I am not a newly wed. The wife got pissed...


    So the workers begin...


    I think this only cost me about B20,000. Fok me, one of the hottest places to live in the world and I have a dryer.

    Plus, I can damn near guarantee the old lady ain't going to live up to the deal. Sometimes cultures do collide...

    Dish-washers suck. You actually have to clean the plates with water first before putting them in a dish-washer. Hardly seems worth it really.

    Hillbilly,
    Be prepared to have all your clothes shrunk using the dryer.

    I used to have a tumble dryer in the UK. Bloody excellent it was. Never heeded to iron a thing and the clothes were really soft.

    Now I'm in Thailand, I have a laundry shop for my Bangkok clothes. Never need to iron a thing and the clothes are really soft.

    I have a tumble dryer, purchased about 20 years ago in NZ, goes and looks like a new one and a boon in the raining season, like now.

    True, true. I love dishwashers, not only because they wash the dishes but because you can store the dirty dishes in it until you have a load.

    No more stray cups and bread and butter plates and knives in the sink waiting to be washed.

    A maid is as good though.


    HB, clothes dryers really eat up the electricity, I think you will find.

    The optimum is to have two of them, saves a lot of time and cupboards.
    Take out from the clean when you need, put back in the dirty.
    When the clean is empty, it's time to run the dirty.

    Note: You can try and spice up your sex life by using your new machine as 'bounce.' Just set it on the spin cycle and away you go. (for safety reasons avoid actually going into the machine itself, unless of course you are into that).

    As with the dish-washer machine, when the capacity isn't enough you get yourself another but smaller one.
