Default Trying to replace the Expat Telegraph Mentor service.

Many of you will remember with some fondness the old Mentor service run by the Expat Telegraph as part of their website, whereby volunteers agreed to answers readers' questions about whatever locale they currently called home. However, after slowly falling into neglect-based decline, the Telegraph organisation has finally abandoned its once excellent "Mentor" service. I used to be the Telegraph Mentor for Japan and then for Hua Hin, and I would like to continue this role with or without the Telegraph. Therefore, if anyone wants any kind of information about either Hua Hin or about Thailand (or even about Japan, though I haven't lived there since 2005), please fell free to ask. As I rarely get the chance to check out the forums (Internet reliability is very different here to Japan!), I recommend you use the Hua Hin FAQ link on my blog, which can be found at Huahinblog.tk.
This isn't just a plug, it is also a genuine attempt to continue the information service that the Expat Telegraph USED to offer. (Could its demise be linked to the conviction of the Telegraph's former boss, I wonder?)

All the best

Good website Troopie. Hope the mods don't delete it

What a lot of info on there. I shall have to have a good read through on a rainy day. Hope to get up to Hua Hin one of these days. I'm in southern Phuket.

Hi there, katongkaren. Thanks a lot for the kind words.
I went to Phuket province once, many moons ago when I was living in Japan. However, even though Hua Hin Airport is now just a parking place for rich visitors private planes (the passenger service to BKK stops this month), I still like it here. I have to go to outpatients in Bangkok once a month & HH is just close enough to do that -- albeit leraving home at 7 & getting back at about 18.30 or so! What's more, now we've got rid of the Asean VIPs, the town is getting back to normal!

Keep on keeping on, pal
