  1. Not sure. Up until last week I would have said yes. But there was a big outcry last week over a Thai TV star, model who toured Phuket, Koh Phangan and Samui, all the while posting photos on Instagram of her trips, who subsequently checked positive for Covid. All about how she could travel everywhere without quarantine when others are restricted movement. So you might be OK, or might not. Google Ploy Cherman
  2. Maybe some air in a can with the thin straw like thing on the nozzle Blow the little <deleted> out. But make sure you put a bucket or something below to catch him or he will disappear under some other furniture.
  3. They should not mandate anything. Cannot organise a p**s up in a brewery, let alone a vaccination program. Too many mixed messages on who can or cannot register for, or be vaccinated against Covid. Thai first farangs last. Farangs can, farangs cannot. Require this, require that I tried registering today. Told cannot without Tax I.D. So I will just wait until the private hospitals start selling
  4. I popped down there with Thai GF this afternoon Sunday, hoping to register. Very quiet. Only about four people being seen to. Sat down and showed my driving licence. Explained that I lived here and was retired. Was told cannot. Need to come back with Tax I.D. number. So it looks like I will be waiting for the private hospitals to sell vaccinations.
  5. Here are just a few: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8AWFf7EAc4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AHCfZTRGiI https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95kCv10duFw RIP Peter Green. And some live performances of others records: BB.

  6. No. It will go to my registered address in the UK. i went and withdrew THB1000 today from an ATM. Hopefully that will be en for them to renew the card.ough
  7. Where he will probably catch Covid because of the tightly packed conditions.
  8. Good idea. That part (Receiving any bank cards or mail) is already taken care of. I already use another debit card for transferring via Wise. I never use the debit card tied to this account for anything other than accessing the in-branch ATM's for deposits or the occasional withdrawal. Even doing anything via the teller requires inserting the card into a machine. That's why I want to keep the card. I don't want the hassle of returning to the UK and not being able to access the account. The letter states that to renew the card, I just need to make a pur
  9. I know there used to be a pinned thread of recommended tradesmen on Samui, but I cannot find it, and any other threads for air con recommendations are fairly old. So. I have a problem with one of my York air con units. Air is not cold. No cooling whatsoever. I had a guy check it and he says gas is ok, but he think compressor not working 100%. This doesn't inspire much confidence, and I would like to find someone who can properly check things before I have to lay out for a new compressor. Can anyone recommend someone who actually knows what they are doing please?
  10. I will have a look on the back of the card. Normally there are contact numbers there.
  11. i think there is already a lot of fear amongst the elderly Thais and countryfolk in the small villages of the various vaccines. Those outside the cities and tourist industry will need to be persuaded to be vaccinated. So what you say might be true for a while at least. They will be left holding stock longer than anticipated, but will just accelerate giving it to other groups such as foreigners.
  12. If you are correct, and Thailand won't get it for at least a year. Seeing as they have only given emergency approval for one year, The approval will have expired by the time they get it. i can't see that happening. Pretty sure they must have secured some supply. Even if only a small amount.
  13. That's what I am worried about. I think I will call them and explain that I am stuck in Thailand due to Covid, so will be making a withdrawal from here.
  14. Thanks. I will only do it once. Just to make sure they send a new card when the old one expires.
