  1. My last extension of stay ( based on retirement) at Udon Thani office was placed under review for 30 days ( even thou I was applying 28 days EARLY) in effect 60 days of under review as they took it from the date is was due not the date I applied for it. There was an opportunity to " speed it up ' for a consideration which I declined. I am due to get my next extension in May . Will be interesting to see how things go this time .
  2. It would seem that many TV members have only ONE image of the term "Rape". In some countries physical contact with a female without her express consent can be considered ...rape. A male does not have to remove his clothes to commit ................................rape. The western concepts of rape and sexual assault have a very fine line between them. Any contact by this man without her consent is not only illegal but also immoral. She expected a massage..............he offered more and it was not consented to. he obviously did not ASK he just made an ( incorrect) assumption as to what was wanted................or he simply wanted to fulfill HIS fantasy. Either way the only person in the wrong is HIM.
  3. Why not stop to wonder ....why has your ex has not reported this or why she doesnt seem worried by this . It is NOT something you should get involved with..........let sleeping dogs sleep.
  4. As has been stated by others .....get more drunk next time so that not only will you not feel the assault, but you wont even remember it either. That or go home earlier...........any other action you take now so long after the event will be of absolutely no benefit to anyone.
  5. Seems that you are doing the reverse of what many do FROM Thailand ....doing visa runs INTO Thailand ( whilst usually most people do visa runs OUT OF Thailand.). Unfortunately however this WILL NOT be taken into consideration by Thai immigration on your next visit. as stated by will need to find a longer term solution to your situation.
  6. why do so many people find this so hard to are only required to do a 90 day report if you stay in Thailand CONTINUOUSLY for 90 days or more. Leave the country , even for 1 day , and the requirement to do a 90 day report restarts from the day that you re-enter the kingdom . YOU must keep track of the date that you will be required to report by. The need for a re-entry permit is an entirely different matter......................the permit just keeps your current permission to stay ( on whatever grounds) alive for the remaining duration of that permission to stay.
  7. I many others here will make a few assumptions here with no facts to base them on . Most likely the taxi was driving at around the legal speed .. he HAD NO CHOICE but to merge into the lane on the main highway......He assumed that traffic in that lane on the highway would be travelling at or around the legal speed....if so he would/should have no trouble merging into that traffic flow. Unfortunately the blue pick up was obviously travelling well above the speed what in many countries is known as the " low speed lane".......the pick up didnt try to slow down to allow room for the taxi to merge..and found his only escape route ( to the next lane on the right ) was also blocked. What no-one seems to mention or consider ....if you consider the very start of the video ...........the camera car moves to the middle lane ...possibly because he saw the pick up coming up behind him at high speed . After the pick up goes past the camera car it moves back to the left. Some blame could be placed on the camera car because if it had stayed in the left lane the pick up would have had to have slowed down or move to the right where there was already slower traffic at the start of the video which just might have prevented the blue pick up from continuing its Kamakazi drive.
  8. searching for the " bandy league"right now
  9. For me ...its not so much which airline I chose ----the most important thing for me is the timings. Travelling from Australia ( regularly) I DO NOT want to arrive in Swampy at 1AM. So I usually use might leave Aust at midnight - oz time - ( that is no issue as I have to travel to get to my departure point anyway)....but it arrives early morning in swampy( thai time) have full day for onward travel to final destination. Also direct flight with no stopover................I hate long stopovers on the way. and I find their in flight service to be as good as many other airlines.
  10. Just not really sure what this story it a case of instead of just dumping your garbage anywhere---everyone should just dump it in the one open space. Brings back memories of Alice's Arlo Guthrie.........yes officer I placed that one envelope underneath that half tonne of garbage !!!!
  11. Not sure what you mean by ...." longer visa on arrival like I did in the past, ". What did you expect and what did you get in the past ??????
  12. This response is meant to be a joke ......................... but its just a reversal of the ( not so poor) monks stealing from the gullible population,,,,,LOL
  13. great tutorial going on here on Illegal activities .......
  14. 90 day reporting in person should be quick and efficient these days if you have previously done one. They just scan the bar code on the receipt in your passport, print a new page , tear it in half and get you to sign one half , other half is stapled into your passport as a notification of next due reporting date....................thats it . its only the waiting in line queue that could be an issue.
