  1. Well we all spoke about the outcome if it drops further. Today is just over 20 to the Australian dollar and just under 40 to the UK £. And to rub salt into the wounds, it looks like having to show 800k at 90 days reporting is next.. Retirement extensions.
  2. Weather permitting. This is one the the government has no control over in Thailand.
  3. I thought BJ had got then all .? Oh that was last years bunch.
  4. This Thai anger issue. Openings here for some Psychological specialists.. But first you have to get the people to admit they have problems. (Before the event).
  5. Its as simple as chosing a good agent. Drive to immigration and get your picture taken. All of two minutes. And then you are on the inside running. The retirement extension happens. 90 day reports no need to attend. Advising address on return not needed. The stamps are real. Re entry stamps work fine too.
  6. Dream on. Two different entities here. And Immigration has no intention of going back to basic salaries. Business is Business
  7. Miserable git. He is clamping down on everything else. So why not Valentine's day. Obviously no one loves him.
  8. No windows in there. Pattaya has 4 cells. All in the same place. One for females. Sluice rooms in each. Little privacy. The odd ice pipe, visitors allowed through the bars, and depending on the clientele you might get lucky too. Food can be ordered and its delivered. Cages get locked up for a few hours each night, otherwise very sociable. Smoking was allowed. Cash is handy. Gets you privileges. Everyone sleeps on the floor. Definitely NO windows....
  9. So the prices will come down accordingly? No, i didn't think so. Just extra bottom line profits. We take a carry bag to the local market and people still want to put it in a plastic bag before we put it in our own carry bag. Doh...!!
  10. Immigration is always open to offers. Thai police and Thai immigration are two different entities. And the IO have a business to run. I re registered my mugshot today. For the next renewals etc. Business as usual... This is Thailand.
  11. It comes down to the reasons for being here. Mine were, work then retirement, then divorced, then falling in lust with a pretty Thai lady. But recent events and a fair bit of returning travel to the UK and Australia (family) have convinced me that the UK is the cheaper option on an Australian pension. Australia is expensive unless you have free accommodation. Thailand, well we are all discussing this presently. The UK even on today's exchange rate is way ahead for food, accommodation, travel.... Obviously the British will not see it that way. My pension drops to $880 a fortnight and is portable. Out of Australia A bit of bank interest on top. Just crap weather in the UK..
  12. Who is watching the security camera screens? Or are they all too busy with thier smartphone's?
