  1. Past hour
  2. I enjoy your posts, Mike, and although from the UK, this one really resonates with me. For all of Muang Thai's ills, there ain't no vibrancy and magic in the West, just a persistent stifling cloud and the realisation that if I end up stuck in it permanently, it will be a desperate existence.
  3. You don't eat the burger with the knife in it,do ya? On one other occasion at Rock Me Burger I saw a Thai guy cut his finger pulling the knife out of the wooden board that the burger came on.
  4. Very reassuring, thanks Geoff And if you were to stopover at any of those places, would you recommend one above the others? Perhaps one more centrally / mid-way i.e. before Udon. Cheers
  5. She needed to be staying somewhere and until a TM30 is filed, they refuse the extension.
  6. Ah, it's down the old "Google is your friend" deflection. Thanks.
  7. If you starve a dog or corner a rat the possible outcome is not that it will become more docile. So the question is why starve the the dog or corner the rat when it has demonstrated to the satisfaction of most others that there is no identified justifiable cause to inflict abuse.
  8. I'm just reporting what our teachers have been told by Immigration at Chaengwattana. They were clearly told that the TM30 didn't have to be done again unless they moved to a new address. Maybe Work Extensions are treated differently by Chaengwattana. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. And what about the packs that hang out at the temples? As long as the monks feed them they ain't going nowhere.
  10. I am one of the folks who suggested something of the sort. Since we long term, retirement types, etc., are still considered "tourists" for most practical purposes, can we get by on this as well? Most of the available commercial policies I have seen thus far are on the steep side. Make the program available to us as well, but more than 100 baht per head would be needed for the idea to work. I would have no problem kicking in say five thousand baht each 90 day reporting period. The US charges me about thirteen thousand baht each three months, total, for a policy I cannot use, even though it would be far cheaper to payout for Thai medical care, and Medicare is becoming increasingly useless, largely due to the opaque and byzantine billing requirements. I have been getting by with cash, as the usual cost at Thai government hospitals is about equal to my Medicare co-pays. I know, because I have been averaging two admits per year during my five years here. Really meant to edit an additional comment/question... it would seem to make double sense, as the max period Tourist visa is ninety days anywho.
  11. Yeah, there was a French one as well, and others too. Not exactly a secret. But doing so on an exercise, that's one thing, taking such a decision in a real situation, maybe different. That, and wondering how well trained is the Iranian Navy.

  13. You have hands and fingers, simple google search should give you sources and video’s. you may not like it but facts remain facts
  14. If your on a Non Imm O ME Visa, a TM30 needs filing every time you do a border run and re-enter. The law applies to foreigners entering Thailand, regardless of holding a Visa or Extension.
  15. Agents get things done you can not get done otherwise from immigration without financials, landlord-documents, etc. That's why it's 23K baht more then the "retail price" - fee varying by immigration-office and agent.
  16. This survey reminds me of being sent to the Headmaster at my old school. If the reason for your visit was to get stick, the Headmaster would first ask you if you thought your deserved punishment and regardless of your answer he would then ask you to select which, from a rack of canes, you wished to be punished with. In school legend each had a unique name relating to the damage it would inflict; ‘Bone Breaker’, ‘Gnarled and Knotted’ and ‘Stinger’ are names I recall with a wince. On the upside at least the number of strokes to be endured were known in advance of the punishment commencing.
  17. Secret weapons? Maybe an H- bomb? With extra Humus and felafel
  18. Iran is making fake claims quite often. What's your point?
  19. Two main quotes. never lend money to friends or family and never give a job to a family member. i loaned 3 times to my Thai wife's family, never got 1 baht back. And one was a high BUDA Monk to buy a piece of land in the outback for a small temple. you could trust the likes of Al Capone with a loan than a Thai. They will steal off you to get money and then say ERR when you catch them bloody Nght mare.
  20. True. But in naval exercises both Swedish and Oz diesel subs have managed to get close enough to US carriers to sink them. I remember the story of the Oz boat, but can't find a link.
  21. I have a very wealthy 70 year-old friend in Chiang Mai, who I had not seen in about a year. When we met the other day, he mentioned he had just married a gorgeous 22 year old Thai girl. I asked him how he managed to pull that off. He said: "I lied to her about my age." I asked: “You mean you told her her you were 50?" "No," he said, "I told her I was 90."
  22. There might be a whole lot more to this, but somehow no actual sources offered, other than a comment on "western media". Toss in a couple of strong accusation, provide no support, then duck behind the "off topic" bit. All things considered, not much of rebuttal there.
