replied to the thread Need to procure a bottle of Cobra Whisky
on the Laos forum on September 01, 2015:
Hi, I'm really in need of some assistance here. Is there anyone here who knows someone or could help me procure a big bottle of Cobra Whisky?
It is a very important gift for my best friend's wedding that I would need shipped to the US. I am more than happy to pay extra for someone to find and send it and can do a transfer via PayPal or other means.
Please do let me know. Many thanks in advance for anyone who can assist.

I have seen it at the morning market. Not sure the name of the shop but it is inside & not sure which floor. But it is available there, kind of expensive, $100 US for a large bottle. Smaller bottles are available.

on the Laos forum:
Hi, I'd like to invest money in the banks of Laos, strangely enough, to a work permit plus Bussinesvisa is necessary.
I myself live in Thailand (Phetchaburi).
Is it possible as a foreigner of these lives to get approval in Thailand in Laos and what do you recommend me?
Hi, ich würde gerne in den Banken von Laos Geld anlegen, dazu ist merkwürdigerweise eine Arbeitsgenehmigung plus Bussinesvisa notwendig.
Ich selbst wohne in Thailand (Phetchaburi).
Ist es möglich als Ausländer der in Thailand lebt diese Genehmigung in Laos zu erhalten und was empfehlt Ihr mir?

Please contact me on my private E-Mail.
Hi. Sorry to bother you as of no help re your situation, but am coming to Luang Prabang later this yr as have been traveling throughout Asia looking for a place I might enjoy spending an extended amount of time. I notice u have been there quite awhile. Are you having visa issues and do you find enough to do to keep you interested for a lack of a better word. Thx.
My wife and I were married in my friend's home in Luang Prabang in 2002. It was an unbelievably beautiful traditional Lao wedding and was probably the best moment (week!) of my life. Unfortunately, since leaving Laos, we have not been able to get hold of him.
It was certainly challenging to contact him back in 2001-2002 (phone is the only thing that worked--twice!) but soon after returning home, we found that his phone didn't work. We have sent many letters/packages/gifts to what we thought was his address but I'm pretty sure we weren't writing it correctly (it was written in Lao). I have searched the internet for Luang Prabang forums or news groups or ANYTHING that might allow us to get hold of him, but there just doesn't seem to be a good way of finding him.
Does anybody know of any directories, phone-books, or anything that might assist us in figuring out a way of contacting him?
Any ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, just saw this--sorry for not responding sooner!
I love that idea! I had no idea there was a Facebook page for the Laos Expat Forum! Will be sending a request today.
Thank-you to everyone for the replies and the great suggestions. You are giving me hope that I may just be able to find him without actually flying half-way around the world!
Oops typo Expat Luang Pra Bang ok
