  1. My passbooks lists the abbreviations and the full text. Not all are listed so best thing is to ask the bank because there is more gibberish in banking than there is in the EU. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  2. Tax is taken at source, you will see it recorded annually in the passbook. I have seen posts where people are keen to involve the Thai ‘taxman’ in their affairs but I am not because Immigration is enough paperwork for me. Sent from my iPad using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. I hope that language learning will help ward off Alzheimer’s too. The mistake you made there was both tone and length of vowel, learning to write will solve that problem. ไหว was rising tone short vowel is an intransitive verb, vibrate, shake etc. As a modifier though it means to be capable at that moment of action. วิ่งไหว : two words: wing (short-falling) wai(short-rising) I make an association with those two meanings but too esoteric to make public! The positive thing is that I doubt that you will forget ว่าย ไหว now. So my attitude to Learning Thai is don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
  4. 8 replies already, I can’t see any! In case nobody has replied yet. I am afraid, tonight I sleep alone. I don’t know where to turn. (What to do to solve my problem)
  5. My first priority would be the most convenient and straight forward way of visiting a Thailand for half the year. In the first year it involves one application at the Thai embassy in your home country. One transfer of Bt800,000, plus spending money. The income method is a little more work but provided you do not need to spend Bt65000 per month it wouldn’t be many years before you would have accumulated enough cash through transfers to use the Bt 800,000 method. I see no convenience in an annual application process or in “visa runs” . Many people who have spent years doing “visa runs”, on reaching fifty years old and delighted to be able to give it up.
