  1. Past hour
  2. FF-S how many <deleted> chances do you <deleted> NEED!
  3. Just so its clear for future reference and searches, as of this date there are in fact no directs from the USA to BKK. You stop in Shaghai, Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei, etc. I know becasue I am making my fall reservations.
  4. These people have done nothing to make me more aware of pollution, climate change or any other environmental issue. Issues I have been aware of and joining legitimate campaigns about since the 1970s. None of which alters my comment that "These people who claim to care about the environment are not only causing a huge deterioration of Central London's air quality, they are also producing a huge amount of non biodegradable, plastic waste!" Do you find that acceptable?
  5. Absolutely. People considering moving to Thailand take note.
  6. With the diet Thai dairy cows on feed, the fat or butterfat content of the milk is low(as is the protein of the milk) a lot of farm gate milk does not meet the standard, so they will get docked a few stangs a kg of milk. So for making yogurt no need to worry about the fat content of the milk. The same reason it has been posted on other forums, that Thai milk is like colored water
  7. Why not let the Court clarify the juridical sovereignty prior to talk about different sentences and to remove the object …
  8. another human tic that feels no shame to suck $$ out of honorable hard working people? scumbag
  9. Once your luggage is identified as uncollected in Bangkok, I am unsure what the procedure would be. It is possible the airline would realise that you had flown to Vientiane and forward your luggage there. At any rate, I would not assume you would easily be able to retrieve your luggage. If it is still in Bangkok, the authorities are going to be very suspicious about what is going on.
  10. Supply and demand, and once the price starts to slip it may be hard to recover because the Thai response is often to let the quality of the rooms slip and tourist reduce their visits even further. The politics in the country are impacting many industries, this is one.
  11. Eire is a big subsidy junkie eu member state old boy Sent from my SM-G7102 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. No..no.. They are singing.. "Come cheer up my lads 'tis to glory we steer, To add something new to this wonderful year... Hearts of oak are our ships Jolly tars are our men.." Try putting that to moorlam. The kingdom of the absurd-I even hear that they have the 3rd Parachute Brigade "The Dead Black Panther's Own" standing by.
  13. Yep, the problem being all those buses, cars and HGV's getting in the way.
  14. No no..he lives in tusk's back pockey Sent from my SM-G7102 using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  15. That's quite an in depth piece of info there. Since I haven't researched this then I'll assume you are correct. The other thing(s) that bother me this; 1, all foreigners in the kingdom have to register their address with immigration (just like the many expats here posted about on other threads). Since he had a visa what address did he register with immigration...any idea with that? 2, I find it a very unwise move to possess a visa and then not ask for permission concerning the 'seastead'. If it were me I wouldn't want to risk my status over the lack of a visit to the appropriate office(s) to find what the law was...especially with a junta government.
  16. OK, freight (suitcase) seems not a solution (apropos the VISA I have already) A possibility is maybee to let the suitcase alone in the baggage claim area (BKK). And then I will go after landing directly to transver/transit and check-in my next fly to vientianne (to enter finaly in Thailand by Friendship Bridge)? Approximately 1 day later i am back in Bangkok and I will go to airport to get my suitcase through the customs?
  17. if they live there it is not very big and the threat to thailand must be huge.the thai government are making a mountain out of a mole hill i think
  18. Read my post again: I did not say that she may be your American cousin; I said she may be the spouse/partner of your American cousin. I said this because her FLR residence permit does not name you, so she could be the spouse/partner of someone else who may not necessarily be British, another EU/EEA national or Swiss. Your marriage certificate does prove your relationship, and that may satisfy immigration at your port of entry to The Netherlands; but will it satisfy your airline's check in staff who probably aren't fully aware of the requirements? If it doesn't, then your wife will not be allowed to board. Want to take that chance? I originally linked to and quoted from the guidance to keep it simple; but have linked to and quoted from the directive itself since. Here is that link again, this time with the full title so you cannot confuse it with the guidance.: DIRECTIVE 2004/38/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 29 April 2004 on the right of citizens of the Union and their family members to move and reside freely within the territory of the Member States amending Regulation (EEC) No 1612/68 and repealing Directives 64/221/EEC, 68/360/EEC, 72/194/EEC, 73/148/EEC, 75/34/EEC, 75/35/EEC, 90/364/EEC, 90/365/EEC and 93/96/EEC Both the guidance and the directive itself clearly state that your wife needs a visa, whether obtained in advance or at the border, due to her having a UK residence card as the spouse/partner of an unnamed individual, not as a family member of a Union citizen. I have quoted from the directive to show that the words "family member of a Union citizen" must appear on that residence card. To be honest, I can't be arsed to trawl through the directive to see if the words "except the country you are a national of" or similar appear because she does not have a residence card as a family member of a Union citizen and so needs a visa anyway. A member's immigration rules are separate and apart from their EEA regulations. The latter applies to EEA and Swiss nationals and their qualifying family members and are based upon, and include all the requirements of, the FoM directive. The former are not and are set and amended by the individual member state's government with no need to comply with any EU ruling or directive whatsoever. Although the rules and requirements are the same for all the Schengen states they are applied without reference to the FoM directive unless the applicant is a qualifying family member of an EWU/EEA/Swiss national. Your wife's FLR residence permit was issued under the UK immigration rules, not the UK's EEA regulations. If it had been issued under the EEA regulations it would have the words "family member of a Union citizen" on it! Does it? "Spouse/partner" means what it says. As I said before, that you have the same name does not prove she is your spouse/partner. Leaving possible American cousins aside, I have the same surname as my brother's wife; but she is not my spouse/partner! She would also have exactly the same residence card with exactly the same wording on it were she the wife of a non Brit, e.g. American, who had ILR in the UK. I took the picture of the residence card from page 10 of the government's An employer’s guide to acceptable right to work documents. Yes, and I have always said as much! But as I have said, theoldgit has said, Donutz, rasg has said; getting to the port of entry may not be possible as your airline may refuse to board her without a visa! Want to take that chance? What vested interests? Why would anyone want to hide the facts; even though your wife needs a visa, it will be issued free of charge so there is no money to be made by hiding the truth. The only possible difference between what is in the guidance and the directive is your claim that the directive does not say "except the country you are a national of" or similar. As I have already said, I can't be arsed to trawl through to see if you are correct or not for the simple reason that your wife does not have a residence card as the family member of an EU national issued under the EEA regulations! Therefore, as both the guidance and the directive clearly say, she needs a visa regardless of whether or not the words "except the country you are a national of" or similar appear anywhere in the directive. Fair enough; but London is not your only option for her to apply, and either Manchester or Edinburgh may be closer. At least four people have advised you she needs a visa and it's best for her to get it in advance. Up to you; get her visa in advance or be prepared to be denied boarding when you get to the airport. I know what I would do.
  19. They don’t let him out you know. I’m sure the nurses don’t know he’s got a SIM, they think he just spends hours playing candy crush on his iPad.
  20. you can buy Plants in the Sukhumvit Plant Market from Friday to Sunday. Just a little further than Bangkok Hospital opposite side. Put them in a bigger pot or direct in the ground and you will have a weed growing taking over your entire garden if wished.
  21. If you are eating well and exercising, which you are, shouldn't be anything to worry about. FBS is not a great indicator anyway, perhaps an HbA1C reading will give you a better indicator? Time of day will also impact the reading. If you test FBS shortly after waking up, you will get a higher reading due to the body flooding the system with glucose to get you going. Mine is 90 when I wake, drops to 80 2 hours later.
  22. An interesting article Chinese communist party in private business An interesting look at the symbiotic relationship between the Communist Party and large private businesses in China. In many aspects not that dissimilar to Thailand!
  23. I know of a natural foods restaurant in BKK that serves some entrees with a "mock meat" that I gather is mainly made from ground nuts, seasonings, etc. I've had it as a taco salad, and it's pretty tasty. On the other hand, I just tried the supposed beef filling that Taco Bell Thailand has recently made available at their two outlets in BKK, and there's no way in the world anyone eating it would believe or think or taste that they were eating beef. Rather, some kind of foreign mystery "meat". Between the two, I'd take the 'mock meat" from the BKK health foods restaurant every day of the week!!!
