    I don't wish to hijack the thread, but just a quick question, is managing your own rental property here considered "working?" 


    Even being the owner, aren't you working as a property agent, if inside Thailand?

    We rented our unit out via agent. 

  2. Hello !

    I've just rented out my unit for long term. For the 1st time address registration of tenant, I will let agent do it cause I'm not in Thailand by then. But in the future, I want to do TM30 myself for the tenant who is working during the weekdays . Does anyone know what documents I need to prepare and can I also do this online (...and how) ? I'm in Pattaya 


    Thanks very much in advance

  3. Hello!

    Am considering changing school for my girl. We live in Soi 18, Naklua Road, quite far from that school.... Last time, I only saw one school bus parking there.... I know, sometimes, taking school bus could be both expensive and time consuming....


    Thanks in advance

  4. If a man has a retirement visa, can his wife and kid also get some visa to stay in Thailand for long term ?


    Till now, my husband has been working in Thailand for 8 years. He has work permit and working visa, so I and kid have family visa. And my kid is in a local good school..... Not sure after he retires, how can I and kid still stay in Thailand, if we wish to ?





  5. Morning!

    Does anyone have some advice/experience to share ?

    I and my hub are both non-Thais. Our 3 year old daughter was born in Thailand and has a birth certificate from Pattaya city hall with a 13 digits identification code on it. And we have bought condos, have blue books and lived here already 6 years. Hub has long term working visa and we have family visa.

    In this case:

    1. Can my daughter apply for a Thai ID card (must wait till she is 18 right?)

    2. Can she apply for a thai Passport now ?

    3. If so, how about the procedure ?


  6. Thanks Sheryl!

    Yes, the doctor told me my arteries are normal.

    I am under stress a lot, too many issues swirling in my mind everyday. I have many dreams during sleep too. Feel difficult to relax.

    Are you in Prachinburi ? I head there is a good meditation centre : http://www.kamala.dhamma.org I wish I could know when I will be free so I can do the reservation ahead !

    Have a nice day! Susan

  7. Hi,

    Does anyone have experience ?
    I did a heart check in 2013, here is the result:
    MMode/2D Measurements & Calculations
    EDV (Teich): 70.0ml
    ESV (Teich): 15.3ml
    EF (Teich): 78.2%
    And last week, I did a cardiac CTA:
    Ventricular ED Volume incl. Papillary: 105.3ml
    Ventricular ES Volume incl. Papillary: 25.9ml
    Ventricular Stoke Volume: 79.3ml
    Ventricular Ejection Fraction: 75%
    Both EF are good and the report says no heart problem. But my EDV/ESV seems much lower than normal range, in both reports.... Does this mean the heart function is weak or something else ? I checked on web but could not get much help. If any one can give some info, that would be great, thanks!
    PS: Am 40. These years, I often feel tired and low energy, so I went to BPH 2 times. At the same time, I do pingpong and taichi quite often, hoping to get stronger.

  8. You should look at Cathay Pacific as well, can normally get a return around 10K and at least you'd be travelling in the right direction the whole way, KL is a bit of a detour.

    Thanks! ....and...we are afraid of any airline related with Malaysia !!!! Look at what happened in 2014!!!

  9. Susan,

    from where to where ?

    you can check the internet, Airasia have cheap deals out of the Gold coast in Australia to Bangkok.

    Also, tigerair is cheaper than most commercial airlines. There are a couple of others but you need to check on the internet ...

    Thanks! We flight round trip Bangkok to Shanghai ... Great, I will have a check on web....

  10. Hello ! Advice needed

    We will buy another apt, but we need 3 M baht more.

    If we pay the 3M as instalment , landlord will change the ownership after we clear up the payment 2 years later. (The condo we will buy is in Thai name, but the landlord has another condo in Foreign name. He can change the ownership )

    If we borrow money from bank and clear up all the payment now, then we can have the ownership right away.

    So, which bank in Pattaya has good loan interest rate for 2 years? Thanks so much in advance!

    PS: Hub works in Rayong, has working permit and long visa stay etc

  11. Hi,

    Jo's handy no. 0892501910. 0

    This afternoon, he will come to North Point for coaching at 2:30PM. If you have time, can arrive at 3PM, watch a bit then talk with him for details. After this, he will go to Garden Cliff to coach a child.

    PS: the tennis court of North Point is on the 6th floor of the garage building

    Good Luck

  12. Hi,

    My husband's coach Seong Baek Jo is very good. He is a Korean, in the league, good English, precise and strict.

    He changed several coaches in the past 4 years, and now he only plays with Jo.

    Jo charges 600 baht /hour, one on one lesson. But am not sure how much is the price if he provides courts... or you can go to Fairtex for court..

    Normally he comes to students' condo, which normally has a court ...

    You can go to Facebook to contact him and get his handy number too.

  13. I never worship doctors blindly.

    I only go to BPH for 2 things: Operation (baby birth)... and annual Health Check.

    I have efficient medical knowledge to judge the situation, make the decision and do treatment smile.png))

    Today, the room mate of that boy has the same problem, and my baby too, as she visited them last night . The room mate went to another hospital and the result shows "virus infection", not too serious.

    Yesterday, BPH did not do any lab test of the boy and just gave antibiotic.. In fact, the boy has insurance in Europe, but he was too weak even to explain the details... Lucky, so he didn't need to stay overnight in BPH smile.png))

    I don't mind to pay expensive. But look at the service we got yesterday, I thought that was really shabby.

    PS: The boy is already back to normal today. Just some intestine virus infection. As long as you have good rest, vomit/poo all the garbage out and keep the electrolyte level normal , it will disappear after a certain period. I send him to hospital because he WANTED to go ! Farang !!!

  14. I had fresh/horrible experience from BPH today!!!

    My relative had a sever food poison and even vomit after taking medicine. He is a European and prefers hospital than the acupuncture. So I took him to BPH. We waited horribly long time before the doctor received him for 3 min. (He was feeling very ill and I complained to the nurses but we still had to wait like hell).

    Then, they wanted to take him to in- patient dept. I firmly refused. He didn't have dehydration etc so the situation was not really critical .He had some infusion and then left BPH. ......Also took long long time before the nurse got the medicine and did infusion on him...

    I used to have very good impression of BPH and I had my baby born there. But today 's visit made me very angry. The boy was very weak and suffering a lot, but they still let us wait wait wait.

  15. Anyone interested ? Can share the cost......and if you think my level is too low for you, then you can't stop coming freely. I understand :))

    I used to play quite often. But stopped for long time. Now I want to pick it up again. Don't like to go to other places to play. Because it's only 3 minute motorbike ride from my home to Fairtex... and I have limited time because of my super naughty energetic baby ! Thanks in advance


  16. Thanks for all your info/suggestion! Solved. After hub extends his working contract in Thailand, we will change nursery for baby.

    No, we don't want to buy another car, just for sending/picking up baby.

    PS: North Point management is lousy maak maak. I've given them quite some advices, such as setting up a ping pong table, a kid playroom, a library , etc. But they just give you a "S.... T"! We don't have a platform to know each other/help each other etc in this Condo. Have to DIY !!!

  17. Thanks for all the input. In fact, what I'm hoping to find here is:

    1. some driver who is some Thai relative of some users here.

    2. And he/she happens to live near my home.

    I know the chance is very very very little. But won't hurt to ask.

    I get up at 6Am every day. My hub drives to Rayong 5:45am to work and most of the days, out of Thailand for business trip. I've tons to work and study.
