  3. Man found dead in pickup truck By The Nation An interior design contractor was found dead in his pickup truck parked on a roadside in the Phutthamonthon district of Nakhon Pathom province on Saturday morning. Police said the body of Assawisut Prachaphantharadit, 56, was found in the driver’s seat. On the floor of the front passenger’s seat, an aluminum tray was found with charcoal ashes. His relative said the man drove out of his house on Wednesday morning and did not return home. The relatives thought he had gone to practice meditation at a temple, as he used to at times. The relatives suspected Assawisut might have been under financial pressure, as he had not been paid for a recent project worth Bt1 million. The body was sent for an autopsy to Siriraj Hospital.

  4. When these two *vile word* get locked up, I hope it really is for a long time. And cut off their index fingers.
  5. I couldn’t find a bookstore when I was in town, but I picked up a copy of “Thailand Fever” at Phuket airport as I was leaving last night. I’d discussed the book with my wife and she read a couple of the sample pages on their webpage and had a giggle. So I read it on the plane last night, it was interesting and I found myself laughing out loud several times as I recognized some of her patterns like not telling me what we are up to tomorrow or what time we are going somewhere with family etc. I’ll photograph a couple of pages and send them to her... [emoji1] The cultural and family expectations were interesting and vaguely familiar... even though I knew very little about them, I had sensed some of them myself and some had been vaguely explained by my wife to me. All in all I thought it an interesting conversation starter. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  6. I would agree with you except that Thailand relies heavily on tourism and believe it or not - retired people living here - Singapore is a very different animal and relies heavily on a very fine tuned invested niche economy - Thailand will never be Singapore - Black and white and complete opposites - here is a clue - population and land mass - Singapore is Tiny on both, I believe the population of Greater Bangkok would be getting close to the total of Singapore and probably similar in size with all due respect I probably got lost somewhere when you mentioned Singapore - maybe you were agreeing with me not sure
  7. I did not say it was $25 but I was confirming that I wasted a lot of ticket like this in my life. Some might have been about $25 but the last I remember are more close to $60-100.
  8. Soya doesn't negatively impact Oestrogen. It's a myth. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5188409/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6057888/ https://www.livestrong.com/article/519107-soy-estrogen-in-men/ Yikes, play nicely etc.

  10. I am a bit curious. At about this time every year or maybe in March I get a form sent to me from the social security office asking me to confirm my address ( and they probably want to know if I am still alive). But this year I have yet to receive the form. I am wondering if others have received the form. If so, could you give me the form number so I can print one out and send it in. I did a google search but could find the exact form that had been sent to me before. Thanks.

  12. Try to contact them. When I checked the website the first time there was not flight details and second times I could choose the destination and date.

  14. Wife has a small mobile food business she has been plugging away at for nearly a year. Selling fast food (burgers, hot dogs etc) off a mobile cart. Food is great, right price point....everything sussed now like a well oiled machine but so far she has done no better than pocket money. Well many Thais would probably be happy with the results and she's paid for all of her start up costs but just seems to be so many hurdles, one of them the many holidays and interruptions. Seems like every other week there is some sort of holiday or event. We're in a major Isaan city and now the 40 deg + heat seems to be keeping the customers away. We tried a shop for a while but that was a dead loss. Same result just paying rent and it appears for our style of business people like to be able to pull up order and go without parking or walking too far. One of our disadvantages is we have kids and it is unsuitable for her to sell at night so she misses out on an important part of the day there. I have been seeing a heap of Food Panda delivery bikes around. At first I wasn't keen on the 30% commission they charge but our prices are low enough to simply add this on to the price. Has anyone had any success with them?

  16. The oracles at the IET suggest bonding the steel to the existing ground rod assuming it is of decent length (> 1m). If the existing rod is too short or unknown, bash in a new one and link the two then bond the steelwork. Of course all the usual disclaimers apply as we cannot see the actual installation.
  17. Funny, that's exactly how I look at the USSA under President Little Hands and his moronic supporters.
  18. Well let me tell you, it's not part of the culture of typical marriages, it's part of the story-telling-culture of a particular section of thai women looking for older western men. The typical Thai can't even get a bank loan for the sums people post here, let alone muster up the money. My girl told me in her village, many don't even marry because they can't afford the ceremony. They just have kids and live life as if married. Would you sell your daughter away? This answer ends that discussion. Would you partake in that kind of ceremony where you show off your ability to provide (under the circumstance that you get it back, only for show)? Up to you, I wouldn't. You're declaring things as facts, as if they're an universal part of the culture. Yet these sums are unobtainable for the vast majority in Thailand. And just because some can afford doesn't mean they give a flying f about any tradition even their own western traditions, and thus many more marriages than you believe occur without any sin sod. Sorry for the rant mate and I don't mean to attack you but this talk is so repetetive here yet when you meet a lot of people in Thailand you see a different story. You also have the choice to stick to your guns and deny any sin sod and get upset over being asked. This will force your partner to show what they really think of you.
  19. Kids grow fast and unless you plan to have several children or pass the clothes to friends/relatives who are having children there really is no need for "high" quality. As for name brands, do you really think a two year old cares? It is all about face for the parents. Spend time holding, playing, feeding, keeping the child clean and dry. Don't worry about name brand shoes and clothing. If you have too much they will wear them 3-4 times and then grow out of them. I do know people that bought so many clothes the kids never even wore them before they outgrew them. Just my opinion. Up to you how you spend your money.
  20. The perimeter restaurants ? I agree, they seem to be struggling, the outlets in the centre seem to be doing well though. One thing with Central, if you’re going to use the toilets under the escalators just outside the food court, then don’t forget the aerogard... skeeters are thick. La Drink on my two visits also gave us complimentary shots of lime vodka when we called for the bill, tasty and a nice touch, not that I’m a spirit guy. Definitely overstaffed, on the night that they get 15-30 people turn up they’ll be fine [emoji1][emoji1360] Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  21. here we have two scumbag drug dealer 18 year old losers who think they are big men taking the life of an innocent lovely beautiful dedicated person who was trying to make her way in life doing all the right things Terrorism in N Ireland is dead - decent people will not stand for it, go the school get educated and get a proper job instead of running around thinking you're some kind of big - you are not
  22. I sometimes think this, but if they ran things how it should be done the country would be like Singapore and no one would want to be here. The reason we've liked Thailand for so long is it's backward

  26. Correct. And if you don’t like it, don’t shop there. Better still, go home so we’re all spared of your whining over a couple of Baht discount to which you’re not entitled to as a foreigner.
