  1. Its a disgrace that this injustice will be occuring soon. President Joko has let off several indonesian felons and is thus a hypercrite.

    If I were in their position I would have joined the islamic religion years ago whilst in bali prison. Its a brotherhood and they will never kill one of their own.

    In these last few days if I was in that cell contemplating my fate, I would ask my family to bring in a rasor blade. Anythings got to be better than sucumbing to the fate of 10 guys holding rifles. Thats got to be frightening to face that

    This is great news. I've got my champers on ice ready for a celebration.

  2. That's good. But presumably to do this you had to get all the required approvals from Laos and pay the required "fees"?

    Nah….got married in HK. Then went to the Lao consulate with marriage cert which they translated into Lao language (showed police report, birth cert, single status) and they stamped it. Wife took cert back to Lao and they stamped it. Done.

    How easy was it for your wife to get her 'single status' (by which I assume you mean the Affirmation to Marry) from the Lao Authorities? If we could get this without having to go through all the Lao bureaucracy we'd marry in Thailand!

    She tells me it was pretty easy. The single certificate was called a 'bai daeng sot'. Police report was easy. Biggest headache was changing her place of residence from Borikhamxay to Vientiane. Once she did that, getting the documents was easy.

  3. Because Lao women need approval from the Lao authorities to marry foreigners.

    I go married in HK. It was recognized in Laos by the MOFA.

  4. If we do get married, which I want to for the sake of my son, we will probably do so in my country (UK) or somewhere like Hong Kong or Singapore. Obviously the marriage will not be recognised in Laos, but it will be in Thailand for visa/extension purposes.

    Why won't it be recognised in Laos?

  5. get more police on the roads anyone found to be intoxicated take them off the road incarcerate them till they sober up that should keep the figures down .

    But then they'd be far less police on the roads.

    Was once playing Songkran a few clicks out of Khon Kaen. People were putting water on the police who were sipping whiskey and quite enjoying it (except for the big captain). Two drunk cops then got in their car and started to drive away and speaking over their loudspeaker warning people not to drink and drive.
