  1. Past hour
  2. I though motorcyclists were tough! Cooled helmets, pah! Meanwhile peltier units also work backwards, so the same system could be used to provide warm air for those chillt winter days.
  3. Afaik to sign up for True wallet you need to be a Thai citizen, probably due to some laws. When signing up you not only have to input a Thai ID number, but also the number which is on the back of a Thai citizen ID card, i think the pink id card for non-citizens doesn't have this number, so you will not be able to sign up. There is no need to have a Thai ID card to use Grab.
  4. I can recommend Food for Foreigners and they do ship all over Thailand every so often they have special offers Look on FB search feature FFF Food For Foreigners they have a group
  5. I have to admit that I have my visor 90% of the time (at least a little) open because I like the air flow. I can't imagine that a air-conditioned closed helmet would be more comfortable.
  6. As we have seen with road carnage,corruption, drinking /driving , etc etc etc .Thailand has it all figured out!!!!
  7. Wow. First time someone threw themselves under the bus. Admits to quid-pro-quo. "We do that all the time." "Get over it." "Elections have consequences." Admits to criminal conspiracy. Provides infomercial for Trump Doral. He knows he's in deep do-do. Can't see him lasting through the day (Friday in the U.S.).
  8. The only thing that Thai domestic tourism will stimulate is coffin sales
  9. I can't. After 2 years you have to retake the test. Moreover, it will make me a resident again which I don't want.
  10. I am aware of the income method and I'm also aware it was canned because huge numbers of people were making false declarations to their embassies in order to get the required letter of so called proof, people who once again were gaming the system. And no, I don't condone or support dubious activities by agents although I do support their use for genuine visa related activities where they can save time and avoid frustration for a fairly low fee. Again, if people chose to go the route of back to back O-A's, with the acknowledged higher bar, that's their prerogative. The question in my mind however is why anyone would want to go through that additional aggravation every two years when a much easier option exists in-country. In some cases at least, if not in most, it must surely be related to their unwillingness or inability to prove funds in Thailand, a loop hole we're now seeing closed for many. TBH it's the scammers and gamers who have made this whole business more difficult for everyone else, folks who have done a runner on medical bills; people who have tried to live here on tourist visa's...and every other angle that exists that people dream up.
  11. "Is it just me or do you guys miss not having a garage?"
  12. ok, here are the pics of his home meter and AC. Please tell as much as possible what those important #'s mean. 20amp or 30amp main breaker for the 3/9 meter will be good size, right? The RCCB (safe T cut or whatever) can be 30amp because I was told by the Spark any lower then 30amp they do not have them here unless I go with a different brand then maybe a 20amp RCCB. Conclusion and clarification; 1. The main breaker can be a little over like 150% of the meter amp. 2. The RCCB breaker can be a little over the main breaker. I will definitely tell Spark to change the wires to proper size. There are 1.5mm sq copper and a 2.5mm sq copper coming out from the shop meter. It should be like only one double wire like a 16mm sq or bigger copper wire. Also his shop roof is aluminum, so I will definitely tell Spark to run the main wire (from meter) using yellow pvc pipe.
  13. Sounds like it is time to get a new Canadian Driver's License
  14. Growing the gap between the rich and the poor to the highest gap on the planet is certainly a novel way to achieve this
  15. To re-do the oath would mean the the high and mighty are fallible and make mistakes. So about as much chance of that as me becoming a Durian farmer
  16. If the foreign residency is actually waived, yes she can adjust status from J1 to IR1. Look at USCIS for guidance or, as suggested get an attorney who can help you. She should get a work permit, while paperwork is processed. She would not be allowed to leave and come back without advanced parole.
  17. That's a lot of instant noodle soup and latex pillows..
  18. IMO environmentalism isn't a political movement. It's just being a good occupant of planet earth. Doesn't everyone want no garbage around? Pity that so many don't care about throwing their garbage around,
  19. If you miss not having a garage then you are ok
  20. Of Course!! we don't want a workplace discrimination lawsuit in our hands.
  21. They wont stop until that word is beaten to death...Thailand has become the hub of stimulas's
  22. And 99% of the fights occur in Pattaya And probably 50% involve Ivans
  23. They don't accept damaged passport as ID. No drivers license. I was a non resident since 2015, so expired.
