  1. Your daughter need to be 20 years old, before "she can do what she wants with it and the land." A House Book belongs to the house, and it's only the "house master" that can accept names to be placed into a house book. Who is house master? The ID-number both my girlfriend and my half-Thai daughter have, are the same after we moved, and they were de-registered in the old house book, and registered in a new, in another province. Today ID-numbers are in a central data-base. When someone is registered in a new house book, the tessa ban office – not amphor, but th
  2. When not having a last will the order after Thai law, according to the book "Thai Law for foreigners" is that half of the estate goes to the spouse, and half of the estate to children (if any). As the land is already shared between two owners, A's share of the land is 50%, of which half goes to the spouse, and the other half divided between A's three children; i.e. the children are sharing 25% of the value of the property. You need to consult a lawyer for correct answer and further procedures.
  3. Best thing I ever bought... Hmm, might among others be the two chicks in Patpong... The one thing I wish that I had bought... Extremely affordable to loose just $100 of Bitcoins in 2010 for 1 cent each, i.e. 10,000 coins, I would have had coins worth $452,560,000 today... The only relief is that my home-country's taxman also weep over that I didn't buy them...
  4. You can get wireless (mobile) 5G connection, which is quite fast. It's a separate unit that will work both with a LAN-cable and Wifi. I use an AIS-unit like that as backbone for my fiber (mine is only 4G is fairly Okay). Another benefit is, that you can bring it with you to wherever you stay in Thailand...
  5. I've never had a problem entering a gogo-bar with my regular Thai girlfriend, or other ladies; even alone my curious cousin that is older than me, however we disappointed the dancers, she was only curious... Gogo bars are business, and they will anyway sell you and your wife a couple of drinks that are little higher priced than in normal pubs, and they'll earn a high barfine, if you succeed in what you are entering for. In Gogos the girls are often wearing bikini or very light dress, so one can see the "take away" dishes. It's more up to the ladies than t
  6. Hotel workers in quarantine hotels, that's what it says "...and hotel quarantine workers"...
  7. Apart from the question about if it's a benefit for British citizenship to be born in Britain, which I have no knowledge about, as I'm not British, I would prefer to live in Thailand. I have a child here with dual citizenship (Danish-Thai), daughter and now a teen, and I chose Thailand rather than my home country, which offers free schools that are supposed to be good, but might not be as excellent as the Danish government wish the population to believe. With a $4,000 to $5,000 monthly income, which is more than 100k baht a month, in average more likely around 135k bah
  8. So do I, but if I had come it sooner – if I for example had arrived during the happy hippie era and just stayed, like some did – I would not have had enough money to be able to stay here later; on the other hand, it hurts thinking of all those gorgeous young girls I could have met, if I had come sooner...
  9. There are some figures it's difficult to lie about. Currency reserves are in the area of $170 billion (before Covid), and a current-account surplus of 10 percent of GNP, which is record high. In 2020 the public debt was projected to increase to 42.8 percent of GNP, but had increased to just under 50 percent late in the year due to the Covid-situation. For comparison, the average public debt in EU was 77.8 percent of GNP by the end of 2019.
  10. You shall look at a country's currency reserves, Thailand has a strong economy.
  11. I am not sure if we should cover this here but I don't see any drastic changes. A few laws are more enforced then years ago when lots of people made visa runs. And obviously lots of retired people have less money because of the bad exchange rate, etc. I am not sure if we can/should blame Prayut for any of this. All governments all over the world change laws from time to time. Sometimes there seems to be some logic, sometimes not so much. Agree, I've been here during two coup d'etat, and neither have changed much of daily life. A few weeks with curfew
  12. In the always unbearable crystal bright light of hindsight, I should not have borrowed a farang friend money to open a restaurant in Thailand... But apart from that wound, I've been either extremely lucky, or well prepared, as I'm still very happy here after almost 16 years of expat life, plus the commuting years, and probably couldn't have done anything better, than the way I did it...
  13. Village marriage and blessing by monks... Source: Thai Rath "โฆษก ตร.แจง ตำรวจแต่งงานซ้อน มีโทษวินัยทำองค์กรเสียหายแต่ไม่ร้ายแรง" and in English transliteration...
  14. Didn't thought that nightclubs on Phuket were open that late; CCTV image shows time as 5:something.
  15. Official conditions for reopening in green zone, which include Surat Thani province...
  16. The purpose of this thread is to focus on what's happening on the island, and what is open. If you wish to tell about deserted beach roads, or post Samui-rants, please start your own thread, or use one of the already opened ... January 19th Due to the Covid-19 restrictions Green Mango Club postpone the Carabao concert, please see quote under poster...
