  1. Past hour
  2. Being married and working (free lunch too) I absolutely struggle to spend 20k a month. We could go out to eat more than once every three weeks but usually I'm happy at home with reading or movie nursing bottle of b1000 scotch or bourbon. I will readily admit we should be living in a larger more stylish place but we have everything here and it's a bargain for central BKK at 4800. 600m from MRT, laundry, restaurant, good maintenance and REPORTS TM30. I can walk to four malls. Quadrupling my rent and eating out every Saturday would get me to 40-45k. My wife works at a big media company I don't need to support her until we move and leave BKK for retirement. Before you think any of this a burden I'm saving minimum 40-45k of my salary per month less dental, international trips etc. I could also dig into 401k etc but no need. Simply don't spend it living Thai lifestyle. After 62 I will splurge a bit. Maybe not accounted for in article. I (we) spend big money on international trips. NOT in boring, overly complicated process ridden Thailand. The country with trash strewn beaches, horrendous air quality, dire roads, huge restaurant related charges and taxes. But if a local Thai makes 20k pm and a farang SPENDS 45k a month why is that something penjurious or lacking? FTW? Seriously.
  3. Yep and perhaps he could stay there long-term and set himself up as a political consultant and take his sidekick with him.
  4. No roasting from me! Trying to enter visa exempt is the worst thing you could have done. As you surmised, staying cool under the abuse was essential, and I am glad it got you through. You will be able to get your extension. If at all possible, you should apply for a non immigrant O visa. It should not be too hard getting one to visit your son. With a Non O, it is usually not a problem entering Thailand. Getting tourist visas at many consulates in the region is likely to be a problem. Do not think Vientiane or Savannakhet are good options now, and Phnom Penh has been problematic for some time. With a tourist visa, you might be OK entering by air, with a tourist visa but entering at a land crossing in that case would be better.
  5. That we will know tomorrow after i have fixed the pipe, but since the pump has always been running ok until today, I expect there is no problem with the pump.
  6. I doubt he would know where the Amazon was...except he can find one at many petrol stations.
  7. Canada was not one of the countries that rescinded issuing verification letters.
  8. The electioneering part would be publicly commenting on these air raids in the manner he did - not the air raids themselves being carried out.
  9. Any recommendation on the east coast? I saw at a scam center its from 1,500b so it should be cheaper or around this price? Back home i was quoted 12,000b.
  10. Why didn't the victim drive to a police station? Maybe it was a cop trying to kill him.
  11. I believe what you're asking me is about the printed version of your portrait photo and not so much the uploaded version. Of course, my own guide is to help those who are having difficulties with the online process, not so much the requirements that are stated on their own website before and after this procedure. For that, I must refer you back to the embassy's website. Personally speaking, I didn't use my iPhone to take a self-portrait due to the lighting issues and the need to crop it afterwards, as well the need to print it off on photo-quality paper. I simply popped along to a Photo-Me booth at W.H. Smiths (though they're also in Tesco and Sainsbury's) and got the necessary prints for just £6. I then scanned that photo and turned it into a JPG and uploaded that. No fuss and no problem with sending it afterwards. One of the many requirements that are listed on a taking your own digital photo is that you need to print it off on photo-quality paper. If your printer doesn't have this, then it's pointless going down this route, and I suggest instead just visiting a photo booth which will give you everything you need. My guide is for the 60-day SETV, which is what I applied for. There is no such thing as a 90-day visa. That would involve extending your SETV when you're out in Thailand close to the end of your 60-day stay. Personally, if you're intending to stay beyond the 60-days and extend to 90-days, I wouldn't tell the London Thai Embassy that you're thinking of doing this.
  12. You mean gates for the wailing, teeth-gnashing, hand-wringing "They don't like us here" crowd?
  13. Bit difficult to see straight or sideways or up and down when they are having their power nap.
  14. Way hey, glad you got it sorted. Pump running OK?
  15. There's that. But then the reporter who released the story isn't exactly a lightweight. Also not too clear from your post what Saudi Arabia's angle would be, publishing the information. With regard to Russia - if you imagine that Israel could freely carry out long range air raids and missile attacks in Syria and Iraq without Russia being aware, turning a blind eye or approving them - try harder. Some form of coordination is certainly in place.
  16. When you read a research report that estimates 25% of pregnant Thai wives are physically abused by their husbands or you watch a YouTube video of a well dressed Thai man hitting his wife with a baby in her arms in front of his other children is it really suprisingly? It is a violent, abusive culture.
  17. Weeeeelllllll, yes but the OP doesn't seem to realise there is already a NRV in the pump manifold. OP: unscrew the black cap on the suction side. There'll be a spring and check valve plunger. Make sure it's clean. Top up water with the plunger removed until it is full, replace plunger, spring and screw cap back on. Should work.
  18. This is a standard payout for an insurance policy in Thailand 300,000 baht, now if the insurance did the right thing instead of playing along with the system jack the rate up for the company at fault for hiring a driver who is untrained and had murderess driving habit, this payout in my opinion is nothing to be proud of that requires a photo shot!
  19. In fairness, Australia allows a huge number of foreign nationals to use the automatic gates at airports, causing aussies to stand in line behind huge groups of tourists only to tap on the screen twice and take a ticket. About time we got some express service IMO.
  20. After a full day wasting time found the cause. There is 1 pipe that goes to the garden taps and the pool, which is not on a zone that can closed off. After walking around for half an hour noticed a small puddle in the middle of the lawn and a sinkhole nearby. So started digging there and found a blue pipe that had imploded and subsequent crack. The hole is open now, but too much water in the ground to repair, so will be job for tomorrow. Strange that a pipe that is in the ground for 10 years can implode at one point. From the location I suspect it is the pipe that goes to the pool, but all pipes in the ground are 8.5 pressure rating.
  21. after doing some study on this theres no answers but many people do suffer from the problem. It seems most likely to be dirty lines. As I said the beer tasted good. I remember ten years ago draft beer in walking street was undrinkable, and if I was with a lady she would tip it down the toilet to stop them reusing it. i have also had bottled beer in thailand that was undrinkable, checking the date on it it was usually only a month or so old but that seemed to be enough time for it to go off. But this beer tasted good. another possibility is tyramine. in any case there are people all over the world that cant drink draft beer but have no problem with canned beer. as its worldwide I doubt its formaldehyde. Its surprising that the beer companies haven't researched it, but there you go, and never again will I drink draft beer
