  1. I like Taeton, just a few kms past Mae Ai after Fang. Sit on the river with food and drink and no water throwing. Water throwing is confined to about 50 meters in downtown area.
  2. Normally a work permit is given for a specific work location. You are supposed to keep the work permit at the work location, not at home, not on you. They can extend the work permit to other locations if your the business you are working for is setup to have official business offices in other provinces.
  3. Don't worry. 34 flights per hour - sounds like a sales job to try and get approval for the expansion. It will take CNX many many years to reach that level. Meanwhile the expansion means jobs for locals.
  4. Not so unusual. I've heard of Iranians with American passports several years ago that have been told they had to return to the US for the issuance of a new passport, and they could not renew through the US embassy...
  5. Yep. Had a friend look into starting a micro brewery a few years ago. The laws are written by the beer oligarchies to prevent anyone opening up one. Really a stifling of free enterprise. You can open a small shop and make small money selling the big names brands, but you're not allowed to make decent money by starting up your own brewery. And they wonder why Thai entrepreneurs want to go overseas.
  6. I have heard from many Italians that the Italian embassy is strict on whatever doc is needed for the issuance of any doc for any reason from the consulate. This is an Italian only requirement. All embassies set their own rules for what they issue.
  7. You don't see large factories built by Chinese companies that are employing many Thais (with good job skills and good wages) with Japanese managers with goods being sent overseas. What you see is Chinese starting small businesses or building hotels and employing small amounts of Thais at low wages. They are essentially getting their money out of China and getting themselves out of China. Not good for Thailand in the long run.
  8. I have a Amazon Firestick with Kodi loaded on it. Works fine. Just make sure you're not to far from the router, or you may need a wifi extender.
  9. Aww, and I thought what CM really really needed was another mismanaged zipline.
  10. Chiang Mai immigration required it 6 months ago. Free of charge at US consulate for US citizens...
  11. Fox Sports1 (in Asia also) is carrying it. SO anyone that has this on their channel package will have it. Thai 1 On on Moon Muang soi 9 has. Game starts at 7.08 am, but they open at 8.00 am. I did notice that the last game against the Dodgers which was friday morning here, they did not have as Fox Sports1 in Asia instead carried Thursday night NFL - but I picked it up at home on a Kodi feed for Fox Sports1 from the US. The World Series is purposely avoiding this Thursday night as a game night so there isn't a conflict this week.
  12. Many Thai lawyers are certified by the thai bar association to be notaries. They usually charge 1500 baht. Pick a lawyer and ask if he can do a notarization. They take a notary course and a test to be certified. One word of caution...Thailand never signed the international notary treaty, so if it's a doc needed by some company in the US, the Thai lawyer notary is ok. If it's something like a Will, I would get it done by the US embassy in bkk.
  13. I think you're saying you got a better price at bkk hospital over rama hospital. I had the exact opposite experience between the two when I did my comparison shopping for my basal cell. btw, I instead went to Ramathibodi hospital in bkk and got it done for under 15K baht.
  14. Kinda of a senseless question as it is too late to drop out. Ballots are already cast (I already voted), ballots are printed out, past the deadline in all states to put someone else on the ballot. The only thing that Republicans can do now is do a write-in. Even if he died tomorrow, its too late. The Republicans have had a majority on the senate(54 of 100) and house (248 of 440) for the past 4 years, have a majority of the governorships in the states (31 of 50), a majority in the state legislatures (70 of 99), and 4 out of 8 in the Supreme Court, but whine about kicking out the elites. Get real as to who the real elites are.
