  1. Difficult to say without knowing the volume - but it sounds quite reasonable if it includes packing, transport and unpacking.

    Been here 10 years+ and moved house several times - and always ended up paying a lot more than that.


  2. One question for all the Germans on this forum,

    According to the Thai English language newspaper we can not quote, Kasit has said that "The German government was pressured by one of its coalition parties from the southern part of [Germany]" to allow Thaksin to enter the country.

    Anybody know which coalition party they are referring to?

    I do not know if it is true what Kasit is saying, but the only southern coalition partner is the CSU (Christlich Soziale Union) from Bavaria.

    Which is also the home of the BND (secret service)......


  3. I think that there is more behind this than meets the eyes - I just don't know what it is....

    Some 4-6 weeks ago there was an article in a German newspaper claiming that Mr. T was sighted in Munich for a secret meeting with the (assumed) owner of the 737 - and that was when he was still banned from entering the country due to an illegally obtained visa.

    The newspaper strongly suggested that the German secret service (BND) somehow helped him to by-pass the passport control.


  4. I am missing some thing here The article stated

    "The initiative was expected to kick off at the Tha Phrachan area and would stretch over an area of 77 kilometers."

    Isn't 77 kilometers kind of a long bridge?

    Now if it was to really cover 77 kilometers in Bangkok how would they be able to do that with out And again I quote.

    "The scheme ensures that no residences or shops will be expropriated and the bridge will not affect ferry operation."

    Am I missing some thing or is this just the normal half witted reporting of the Nation?

    The way I read it, the 77 km refer to the 'hanging garden project' - not the skywalk.


  5. Their business class is okay - only 12 seats or so on the A330 - but 'old style' seats. Service and especially the food is quite good.

    THB 66k is a very good deal - but be aware that there will most definitely be no business class on the Germany-UK flight.


  6. PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE WORDING AND SPELLING. IF YOU KNOW THE

    BIBLE EVEN A LITTLE, YOU'LL FIND THIS HILARIOUS! IT COMES FROM A

    CATHOLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEST.

    KIDS WERE ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENTS. THE

    FOLLOWING STATEMENTS ABOUT THE BIBLE WERE WRITTEN BY CHILDREN. THEY

    HAVE NOT BEEN RETOUCHED OR CORRECTED. INCORRECT SPELLING HAS BEEN LEFT

    IN.

    1. IN THE FIRST BOOK OF THE BIBLE, GUINESSIS, GOD GOT TIRED OF

    CREATING THE WORLD SO HE TOOK THE SABBATH OFF.

    2. ADAM AND EVE WERE CREATED FROM AN APPLE TREE. NOAH'S WIFE WAS JOAN

    OF ARK. NOAH BUILT AN ARK AND THE ANIMALS CAME ON IN PEARS.

    3. LOTS WIFE WAS A PILLAR OF SALT DURING THE DAY, BUT A BALL OF FIRE

    DURING THE NIGHT.

    4. THE JEWS WERE A PROUD PEOPLE AND THROUGHOUT HISTORY THEY HAD

    TROUBLE WITH UNSYMPATHETIC GENITALS.

    5. SAMPSON WAS A STRONGMAN WHO LET HIMSELF BE LED ASTRAY BY A JEZEBEL

    6. SAMSON SLAYED THE PHILISTINES WITH THE AXE OF THE APOSTLES.

    7. MOSES LED THE JEWS TO THE RED SEA WHERE THEY MADE UNLEAVENED

    BREAD WHICH IS BREAD WITHOUT ANY INGREDIENTS.

    8. THE EGYPTIANS WERE ALL DROWNED IN THE DESSERT. AFTERWARDS, MOSES

    WENT UP TO MOUNT CYANIDE TO GET THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

    9. THE FIRST COMMANDMENT WAS WHEN EVE TOLD ADAM TO EAT THE APPLE.

    10. THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT IS THOU SHALT NOT ADMIT ADULTERY.

    11. MOSES DIED BEFORE HE EVER REACHED CANADA . THEN JOSHUA LED THE

    HEBREWS IN THE BATTLE OF GERITOL.

    12. THE GREATEST MIRICLE IN THE BIBLE IS WHEN JOSHUA TOLD HIS SON TO

    STAND STILL AND HE OBEYED HIM.

    13. DAVID WAS A HEBREW KING WHO WAS SKILLED AT PLAYING THE LIAR. HE

    FOUGHT THE FINKELSTEINS, A RACE OF PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN BIBLICAL TIMES.

    14. SOLOMON, ONE OF DAVID'S SONS, HAD 300 WIVES AND 700 PORCUPINES.

    15. WHEN MARY HEARD SHE WAS THE MOTHER OF JESUS, SHE SANG THE MAGNA CARTA.

    16. WHEN THE THREE WISE GUYS FROM THE EAST SIDE ARRIVED THEY FOUND

    JESUS IN THE MANAGER.

    18. ST. JOHN , THE BLACKSMITH, DUMPED WATER ON HIS HEAD.

    19. JESUS ENUNCIATED THE GOLDEN RULE, WHICH SAYS TO DO UNTO OTHERS

    BEFORE THEY DO ONE TO YOU. HE ALSO EXPLAINED A MAN DOTH NOT LIVE BY

    SWEAT ALONE.

    20. IT WAS A MIRICLE WHEN JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND MANAGED TO GET

    THE TOMBSTONE OFF THE ENTRANCE.

    21. THE PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWED THE LORD WERE CALLED THE 12 DECIBELS.

    22. THE EPISTELS WERE THE WIVES OF THE APOSTLES.

    23. ONE OF THE OPPOSSUMS WAS ST. MATTHEW, WHO WAS ALSO A TAXIMAN. HE

    IS ALSO THE PATRON SAINT OF ACCOUNTANTS.

    24. ST. PAUL CAVORTED TO CHRISTIANITY. HE PREACHED HOLY ACRIMONY WHICH

    IS ANOTHER NAME FOR MARRAIGE.

    25. CHRISTIANS HAVE ONLY ONE SPOUSE. THIS IS CALLED MONOTONY


  7. We go to Chesa on a regular basis and always enjoy the food - definitely one of our favourite Western restaurants. Good service and both the Swiss owners are very nice guys.

    Never tried the fondue but pretty sure that you will not be disappointed as this probably is their signature dish.

    Enjoy!


  8. A doctor was addressing a large audience in Oxford...

    "The material we put into our stomachs should have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is full of steroids and dye. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining. Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High trans fat diets can be disastrous and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. But, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all to the male population and most of us have, or will eat it.

    Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?"

    After several seconds of quiet, a 70-year-old man in the front row raised

    his hand, and softly said, "Wedding Cake?"


  9. Agree - we used them - worked like a charm - no complaints.

    It is however also possible to simply buy vouchers which entitle you to use the CIP immigration service and you can then use the diplomatic or air crew counter immigration desks - both coming in and leaving.

    OK, I will bite. Where can you buy these vouchers?

    FYI, the CIP 'Fast-Track' channels are next to the air-crew and diplo channels but they are separate for security reasons.

    You can buy these vouchers from the same people - just call the contact number they have on their website - you can have them delivered to your home.


  10. I've used it twice to my complete satisfaction.

    Arrival : The 10-15 minutes depend on where your arrival gate is (I'm a slow walker) and how quickly your baggage arrives, but immigration is a breeze, and yes I was met at the arrival gate.

    Departure : They even checked me in, escorted through immigration in less than 15 minutes.

    Hope to have helped

    what is CIP? seen it everywhere but no idea

    Apparently CIP stands for Common Important People :blink: - run by the Miracle Group who also operate several lounges as well as a hotel inside the terminal.

  12. Dear Abby

    I have never written to you before, but I really need your advice. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs; phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up.

    My wife has been going out with 'the girls' a lot recently although when I ask their names she always says, just some friends from work, you don't know them.

    I try to stay awake and watch for her when she comes home, but I usually fall asleep. Anyway, I have never broached the subject with my wife.

    I think deep down I just did not want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to finally check on her around midnight,

    I hid in the garage behind my golf clubs so I could get a good view of the whole street when she arrived home from a night out with "the girls."

    When she got out of the car she was buttoning up her blouse, which was open, and she took her panties out of her purse and slipped them on.

    It was at that moment, crouching behind my golf clubs, that I noticed a hairline crack where the grip meets the graphite shaft on my TaylorMade R11driver.

    Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the PGA Superstore?

    Signed,

    Concerned Golfer


  13. A little girl answers the phone. A man says 'Hi sweetheart, can you please get Mummy to come to the phone?'

    'Sorry, I can't – she's in the bedroom with Uncle Paul'

    'But sweetheart, you have no Uncle Paul'. 'Sure I have' the girl says 'he is in the bedroom with Mummy'.

    Short Silence, then the man says 'Listen sweetheart – run to the bedroom and yell that my car just turned into the driveway'.

    When the girl returns the man asked her what happened. 'Mummy jumped out of bed. She was completely naked, ran to the window and slipped on her clothes. She fell out of the window and now she's lying on the driveway and doesn't move.'

    'And Uncle Paul?' asks the man.

    'He also was naked and jumped out of the window into our pool – but I think that he forgot that you emptied and cleaned the pool last week. Now he also doesn't move.'

    Longer silence, then the man says 'Pool??? Sh_t – wrong number.'
