  1. Past hour
  2. So, I'll ask you the time honoured questions. What are your solutions? How much CO2 does humanity create compared with natural sources? Can we actually change climate, and to what should we change it? Has the sea risen where you are? Is overpopulation a factor, or is it the main factor in man made CO2. Is it even possible to replace every fossil fuelled vehicle on the planet in the next 10 years. Complaining without solutions is like a dog yapping at passing cars- makes zero difference ( IMO ).
  3. And? This is commonplace, no different than agent obtained retirement extensions.
  4. From your local yaba dealer?
  5. Living in a Condo, I miss having a garage, work bench etc. Have always thought about getting a group together to rent a shed, fill it with work benches, tools etc. You would have a place to do repairs/projects, hang out.
  6. Government website state that you can apply for 2 month extension during 90 days period.

  8. What are some good online company's in Thailand selling western food? I have tried the search button but no luck. Many thanks
  9. "For the past five years, under the leadership of Prime Minister Prayut, he said national budget has increased year after year, but the country remains stuck and scarcely moving forward." I think 'moving backwards' would be a more appropriate description.
  10. Govt stresses efforts to help the poor BANGKOK (NNT) - After four ministers held talks with the Assembly of the Poor, a Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office assigned as the main negotiator, yesterday received suggestions in person from the Assembly, while reassuring those involved that the government has long been committed to solving their issues, but some cases may take longer if involved with policies and law.

  11. Govt stresses efforts to help the poor BANGKOK (NNT) - After four ministers held talks with the Assembly of the Poor, a Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office assigned as the main negotiator, yesterday received suggestions in person from the Assembly, while reassuring those involved that the government has long been committed to solving their issues, but some cases may take longer if involved with policies and law. A Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office Tewan Liptapallop, who is the chairman of the negotiating team with the Assembly of the Poor, yesterday held talks with Assembly representatives to discuss ways to solve their problems, which include the failure of a private company to provide employment termination compensation as required by law, and suggestions for the Ministry of Labour to amend employment-related law such as the Labour Relations Act, the Social Security Act, and related laws to ensure fair treatment of employees. Mr Tewan said he has been alerted to many issues by the Assembly, and will be forwarding these cases to relevant ministries for further investigation and to find solutions before the next meeting, adding that the government will regularly hold meetings with the Assembly. He said the Assembly understood the government’s role in examining some of these issues which may take a lengthy period to resolve, especially those addressing existing policies and law, however the government has confirmed it will pursue these cases to lessen the hardships faced by Assembly members, but the length of time required is unclear. "Listening to their concerns, I looked at many aspects. I think today the Assembly for the Poor is really facing hardships. They just want all problems to end. They also understand some issues will take some time to solve as they require actions at the policy level. We will do all we can for issues we can address now, but those requiring policy and law amendment will take some time." -- © Copyright NNT 2019-10-18 Follow Thaivisa on LINE for breaking Thailand news and visa info
  12. To raise peoples quality of life Yes raise quality of life for him and his cronies, nobody else.
  13. No, NZ had state ownership of essential resources, controlled the distance trucks could transport goods, citizens had little choice in what they bought ( everything was imported or a monopoly ), controlled how much money could be sent overseas, even banned wage increases and buying petrol on weekends at one point, but the country was far better off and more socially cohesive. Now it's all about GREED and we the people are screwed, unless mega rich. Never mind though- as long as the masses can get sports on tv they don't seem to care.
  14. Did anybody expect the court to say otherwise, never going to happen. They just followed orders, did as they were told... What a farce.
  15. Hmm, well, if folks really are gaming the system by getting back to back two year O-A access entitlements, just to avoid having proven funds available in country, especially when they are retired and living here with families etc., they deserve to get clobbered, IMHO.
  16. Year end tourism campaigns to help stimulate economy BANGKOK (NNT) - The Chim Shop Chai - Eat Shop Spend campaign will be ending in November. The government has planned however, to continue stimulating the economy by introducing year-end tourism campaigns for local residents and international visitors, pending approval from the Cabinet.

  17. Mine died 12 years. Decided to go the upsidedown fridge with freezer on the bottom ,makes sense as I use the freezer the least and don't need to bend down when hunting for fruit ,vegetables ( bad hip)
  18. Chim Shop Chai campaign now generates some 10bn baht BANGKOK (NNT) - The Chim Shop Chai campaign introduced to stimulate domestic spending has now generated some 10 billion baht, benefitting local businesses particularly at tourism attractions; however about 1.6 million eligible persons have not redeemed their entitlements.

  19. Interesting that BoJo and Claude are now in synch and best chums, Claude says no extension will be possible if the current deal is voted down, it's the current deal or no-deal, which would you rather have.....paging Mr Hobson.
  20. Thanks Roamer. After 25 years I have learnt that you have to take Thai government instructions literally! "*Please scan and attach in proper manner otherwise your application will be REJECT" I'm applying by post, so I won't be going to the embassy with a bunch of documents. So I guess I'll send 'em in with my passport and hope that's OK. The problem is the instructions on how to apply don't go into enough detail. It's all supposed to be so easy peasy like 1,2,3 and they have that childish cartoon video. There is a message box at the bottom right of the application pages where you can ask questions. Problem is they don't answer them!
  21. Planting trees to "offset" CO2 is a faux scheme while the old growth rain forests in Sth America, Africa and Indonesia are being destroyed at an astonishing rate.
  22. Year end tourism campaigns to help stimulate economy BANGKOK (NNT) - The Chim Shop Chai - Eat Shop Spend campaign will be ending in November. The government has planned however, to continue stimulating the economy by introducing year-end tourism campaigns for local residents and international visitors, pending approval from the Cabinet. Already, two campaigns have been introduced to encourage domestic travel by Thai people, namely 100-baht nationwide tourism packages. 40,000 tourism packages will be offered at 100 baht each to 10,000 persons daily over 4 days on the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s website. Online registration is required, where users will obtain a promo code which is required to purchase eligible packages from participating airlines, hotels, and shops at 100 baht each. The campaign targets Gen X, Gen Y, and members of the community with medium purchasing power. The Minister of Tourism and Sports, has revealed that responsible agencies are working on the details of this campaign before putting the website online, starting on 11th November. "For the progress, we are waiting for all the details to be finalized, and will put them up on the TAT’s website. We’ll open first registration round for the first 10,000 users on 11 November, then for the next 10,000 users in November, and the third round for another 10,000 on 12 December, and the final 10,000 also in December. We will provide the offers for a total of 40,000 accounts in total." Another campaign is the shocking price discount available for weekday travel, offering up to 70% discounts on air tickets, hotel stays, shopping, food, museums, and other tourism packages on Mondays to Thursdays only, starting in November and continuing until 31st December. This campaign targets the population with higher purchasing power. -- © Copyright NNT 2019-10-18 Follow Thaivisa on LINE for breaking Thailand news and visa info
  23. I would always choose a spouse extension over a work extension so permission to stay is not reliant on work.
  24. They aren't. O-A visa holders just need to provide evidence of the monies in their home country bank and this will suffice for the full two year potential validity of the visa, after which they can either get a new visa, or convert the O-A to an extension of stay. Even this doesn't necessarily require the monies to be in-country, if the person's embassy still provides income letters, or if an agent is used. Your 800k on deposit is only one of several options.
  25. Never heard of Spicejet, but a lot of Indians seem to have found Thai Airways and coachloads are arriving at Pattaya hotels. Not sure if anyone can make a fortune except big fat Nong on Beach Rd.
