  1. I won't turn this into my thread, but I'd like to report on yesterday's vaccine shot. On arrival at the university, it looked like disorganised chaos, but with so many staff willing to help everyone it turned out well. In the door just after 1.00 pm; processed through the various stages and got the shot at 1.52 pm. Into the waiting room for the 30 minute check, and out the door at 2.22 pm. Booked in for my second Pfizer on 23 September. Very happy with it all.
  2. Nothing heard from the "expatvac@consular" site I registered on a month ago, but just now i had sms from the big hospital in Phitsanulok (registered on Monday) to say I'm on for a Pfizer shot tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon at the university just up the road. Only had to confirm it. see tomorrow.
  3. Thanks, Pd. Appreciate your thoughts, but I'm hanging on for the Pfizer I registered for. And then today I managed to register with the big hospital in Phitsanulok with just my passport number, name, age and phone number - but type of vaccine not specified. We'll see what happens.
  4. If you've lived here a while you learn that Thais don't stop at pedestrian crossings. The farang was silly to bang on the car, but what the driver did was piss poor too.
  5. I thought the bloke was going to be a smart arse, but once I got over that, I found the interviews very interesting and enjoyable. Decent questions asked, and her answers and comments seemed honest and she spoke her mind. Thanks very much rx for posting.
  6. It's all in the spelling, Pd - "Buy your vaccine". Or am I just an old, crabby cynic?
  7. Whatever nationalities involved, there wasn't a great deal of social distancing in the back of the police pickup.
  8. I gave you a like, BigTel, for highlighting the situation, but obviously not a like for the situation. Yes, Ms Yao really did sum it up well. I'm sure the government officials do not have to worry when it comes to meal times. It is the knee-jerk reactions; the apparent vague planning for the future that faces the restaurants and entertainment venues. I really do feel for all those caught up in these difficult times.
  9. Yes, l guess it's something. But in the meantime us oldies living in the wilds outside of greater Bkk must make do with masks, hand sanitizer, social distancing and staying home as much as possible. My local hospital, which has my details, gave me a blank look when l enquired. Aah well ...

    Bloody hell, SP. At least they stayed at your "farmhouse" and not your actual house. Best wishes to them, and to you and Dao also, of course. As BigTel said, borders or boundaries count for nothing with covid.
  11. I was going to post something about black lives matter, but some people are easily offended. I'll go with your comment, SP.
  12. Ffs, Rom. Read the thread title again. We all have opinions; we sometimes disagree with posts, but we all have some reason for posting, and replying to posts. And you don't have the exclusive rights to be the authority on everything. The forum lives because of it's members.
  13. I can only agree with you, duke. Sure, not everyone likes everyone, but why drag a post from another forum onto this one. If you want to get stuck in about it, go onto that forum. And it's not just a Brit thing. I'm an Aussie (ok, open to insults I suppose) but I've spent time with soidog and, like you, I'd be happy to do so again. So let's enjoy what this forum has to offer, and let any other forum do it's thing.
