  2. Bonjour. Je recherche une traduction des principales maladies du thaï vers le français et ou l'anglais. J'ai fait des recherches sur Google mais je n'ai rien trouvé. Ça peut être utile quand on va chez un docteur ou mieux comprendre de quoi souffre sa compagne thaïlandaise Merci
  3. Hi, is there anyone who has married a ladyboy and is happy and enjoying life with your partner
  4. I bought both a Vitamix and a coffee machine from Bon Cafe and was impressed with their service.
  5. I had a gastric sleeve done at Bumrungrad in December 2017. I thought others might like to hear my experience. First, I spent a lot of time researching and talking to my doctor. He recommended a surgeon for me and I met with him. I liked him and we set a date for the preoperative procedures which included sending a camera down my throat and heart exam, etc. The throat exam was done under anesthesia and thus I remember nothing. But, all the doctors I met with signed off on the procedure so it was a go. The cost for the surgery was estimated at 650,000-700,000 Thai-Baht which included 4 nights in the hospital. The procedure itself took 2 hours. I was in the post op room for 2 more hours and then in my room. The doctors and nurses took great care of me in the room. The first night was very uncomfortable but not a great deal of pain. They did have me on pain killers. It was hard to sleep though although I felt I got more sleep in those 4 days than ever in my life. I had two doctors that checked in on me daily. The nurses were never more than one minute away if I pressed the button. They were professional and the room was great. I opted for a single room and it had a table and chairs and a sofa. It allowed me to move from my bed to different places in the room during the day to sit and read email, etc. The hotel Internet was great and never went down. The food was very bland as I was on an all liquid diet but that was expected. When the doctor released me, I felt fine and no pain. I had to go back to the doctor two times the first week to have the stitches removed and get checked. All was good and after those two visits, I was told to come back in one month. They put me on an all liquid diet and it has been fine. After 2 weeks of surgery I had lost 25 pounds. I can't express how much I recommend Bumrungrad. If others are interested in the doctor's name, PM me and I'll be happy to share.

  10. Weeks of running in a charity marathon by Thailand’s rock-star, Toon Bodyslam, has officially concluded in Mae Sai District of Chiang Rai Province. At the end of the cross-country marathon, donations totaled 1.16 billion baht as Artiwara 'Toon Bodyslam' Kongmalai reached his destination at the Thailand-Myanmar border checkpoint in Mae Sai District. The amount collected means all 11 hospitals chosen to be the recipients of the donated funds will each receive over 100 million baht. Members of the public are also advised that donations to the fund are still possible until the end of January 2018. http://thainews.prd.go.th/website_en/news/news_detail/WNOHT6012260010001
  11. I love Vitamix and for years I had my USA 110 watt Vitamix for use in Thailand. However, it required that I use a converter that was about 20 pounds and taking that from place to place is a pain in the butt. So, I finally gave in and decided to buy a 220-240 Vitamix. There are some stores around Bangkok that have these machines. However, the best place to buy a Vitamix in Thailand is Bon Cafe. They have a selection of not only coffee machines but also the full supply of Vitamix machines. I had wanted the Prep 3 Vitamix and they often have sales. Vitamix is not cheap in Thailand. Mine cost 30,000 baht. But, overall, I am thrilled with the purchase. It is high powered and blends anything. It is also easy to clean up. If you are looking for a Vitamix in Thailand, Bon Cafe is a great place to start!
  12. The construction of the first section of the Thailand-China railway line officially began on Thursday with a ground-breaking ceremony in the northeastern Thai province of Nakhon Ratchasima. The 253-km first phase of the railway links Bangkok with Nakhon Ratchasima province. China is responsible for design of the railway, supervision of construction and manufacturing of trains and signal systems, among others. Once completed, the railway with a maximum speed of 250 km per hour will be the first high-speed railway in Thailand.
