  1. Past hour
  2. That's the intolerance of those who exercised their democratic right and voted to leave?? Glad we have that sorted out. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

  4. I have never seen them , I guess one could make their own by heating PVC pipe and bending it to the desired radiouse, I said"I guess" because I have never tried it. Talk about about clogged pipes, a few weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to help him with a clogged drain line at his house. We thought it would be an easy job as most of the pipes were exposed at his NJ home basement, and then we would have a few beers. First we opened the clean-out and attempted to use a snake and remove the obstruction,we told his 8 year old daughter not to flush the toilet until we said it was safe to do so. I guess we should have told her to wait until we had our faces close to the clean-out, take the biggest, nastiest, dump and flushed,because that's exactly what she did, As we sat there with shit all over as, I turned around and said to my friend. " When you said come over, we will have a few beers and get shit-faces, this is not what I had in mind" ! We are still laughing about it. Anyway we ended up tearing the whole length from the clean out to the sink Pipe, out because it was totally clogged with fat. Washing fat encrusted dishes, pots and pans under hot water is not a good idea because the hot water melts the Fat and it flows with the water towards the septic or sewer, BUT as it flows in the cool drain pipe it solidifies and is deposited on the walls, where it accumulates .
  5. Yamaha Aerox 155cc Launch

    I bought the R version a couple of months ago and I love it Some days I do 100km on it around town It's not as frugal as the click on gas but then again I ride it like I stole it but if you didn't do that the gas consumption would be probably fairly similar.... If you weigh 50-60kg maybe there isn't much difference but I'm about 90kg and it pulls me with or without a passenger up hills way better than a click 125 As mentioned, great for those dangerous situations like making a uturn when you need a blast of acceleration to get to safety.... Worth every penny gentlemen! And I still have my Nouvo sx I haven't bothered to sell it
  6. If the Post is correct he is 67 Years Old now, and lived in Thailand for 40 years. So he was only 27 years old when he first moved here to stay. Not too many people I know who are only 27 years old and can already afford to Retire for 40 Years. So he either had a job here this long or?????
  7. Just changed over to LED lighting

    I made the switch to LED from incandescent but, after many tries, I couldn't get that warm colour like real light bulbs. Why anybody would not replace fluorescents the day they move in is beyond me! But LEDs are not any more pleasant to live with. With such minimal electrical savings and an uncertain bulb life, I went back to real lightbulbs. In some Western countries, real bulbs are no longer sold. That means the public is being forced a bill of goods. Here, that means a B25 lightbulb is replaced by a B250 LED. When one considers glaucoma and macular degeneration exacerbated by blue light, I made the right choice.
  8. Beautiful Thailand. Heaven for (quality) tourists. Every place in Europe is much cleaner. But now they want to clean up, cigarette buts banned on beaches (for tourists only). That brings more money because of the heavy penalties (for farangs only). And all the plastic rubbish at beaches and in the rivers of course does not disturb because of Thai origin. Ridiculous.
  9. Opening a saving account in Cambodia?

    I said I wanted to understand the risks. Someone else provided a useful post - indicating there is no deposit insurance at all. I'm not shocked. Since you think you're old enough to invest without understanding the risks, I advise you personally to put all your life savings in Cambodian banks immediately. Please hurry, those rates won't last long! Maybe even take out a loan in your home country and deposit that money too! Show us all how mature you are!! And you can be sure that I wish you the very best result.
  10. A more visual alternative to the above tax calculator: https://www.income-tax.co.uk/ or http://after-tax.co.uk/ I hope it's useful (it was for me) :)
  11. Yamaha Aerox 155cc Launch

    It's as easy to hook cables as the old one but you can no longer loop them through the passenger grab handles because they are integrated into the bodywork on the Aerox You can still hook them onto the holes in the undercarriage, each side above the rear wheel
  12. Yep, and the losers of the second referendum don't like the result so demand another vote. Where does it stop?? Sent from my [device_name] using http://Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. Get a motorcycle... They never stop me, I always get waved on while they're searching young Thai peoples pockets for yabba
  14. I cannot see that this is right. If you have "permission" to stay in Thailand on a 1 year basis and you go to do a border the day before the expiry of your current retirement permission, would you not need to fulfill the 800K in the bank for 90 days or a certificate of income from your embassy plus what about the application being 15 days before you permission expires ? I cannot see this as correct advice. I stand to be corrected. Over to you. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

  16. The Huffandpuffington Post is a strongly left biased organization so of course that would be their position!!! Sent from my [device_name] using http://Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  17. Slightly off-topic, are pre-built PC's subject to only VAT? I have my really compact 2 year old Alienware (X51) sitting at my mum's house in UK and now that I am staying for 12 months, I really would like it here in Chiang Mai.

  18. That. Also the Chinese!!! All that crap. Made in China. Thai people. Not sokaprok. Thai people. Sa'aaasaat. Take shower 2x a day. Loei!
  19. maybe just good old 'disappointment'?...'it wasn't all that I expected so I ain't gonna bother again...' different kindsa dope, famous tourist places all fall into that category... 'man, this is some nice shit...' and then you look around and don't wanna be in the same company as yer fellow dopeheads...buncha lowlife sleazeballs... in Florence and admiring the magnificence and then looking closely and noticing the beggars and the garbage... I'll stick to rural asia and keep things simple...I notice that my vocabulary is reduced the older I get...suits my command of the local language...
  20. Re: How to change your Non Imm O Family to O-A retirement. Now I can reply and answer my own post as I did my retirement visa in one day last Friday. The requirement is 2 months or 60 days. However you need to apply 15 days before your current visa is up so the money should have been in your account at least 75 days on the date of application ( not counting the application day). This is for your first application for an O-A extension. I already had a non immigration O on my passport due to family. When you apply for the O-A then your O extension will be terminated on that day and you will not be able to use any remaining time on that extension. As in my case I lost a month. So apply when you have 15 days left or as near as possible (weekends) without going under. The documents I provided were ( one set of copies only) Proof of address, deeds in my case but lease would do maybe a copy of a few bills in your name. I also provided a letter from the Juristic saying I was an owner occupier but I dont think it was necessary. 1 recent picture dated and signed on the back then glued to the application TM7. Copies of all pages of passport. Copy of arrival card TM6 copy of all relavent pages of bank passbook ie 1st page with your details and all the pages from deposit of 800K฿ to current. ( it is wise to make a withdrawal and a deposit just before making the copy of the last page on the application day, changwattana is easy for this as many banks are available) A confirmation letter from your bank confirming the funds (cost: 100฿ at Bangkok Bank) better on the day, but up to 7 days prior should be ok. Withdraw a few hundred or thousand Baht from your account from ATM on the application day, without going below 800K฿. Get the staff of your bank to deposit a small amount say 100฿as they are doing the letter as I did and then and only then update your book. Get your letter from the bank and copy the last page of your book or all the relevant pages as the case may be at the photo copy shop.( I use my own printer). Make sure you sign all copies of documents. Pin all together and present with your original book and passport and 1900฿. Thats it. The following year your money will have to season for a minimum of 115 days. 90 days before application and 15 days prior to your permission expiring. Do 4 months before your permission expires to be safe. Good luck and be safe. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  21. While we're at it another thing i rarely see used.....or perhaps available.....in Thailand are the less restrictive swept bends (as opposed to elbows). Short radius elbows are particularly egregious on waste pipes from kitchen and bathroom as Thai tilers have a habit of using basins and sinks and floor drains to wash away their waste cement mix and it will collect perfectly just behind the bend. Ever tried sawing through set mortar filling a pipe above your head?....it ain't funny.
  22. You were wrong, he is still in custody. As for 'photos and witnesses' you posted a single photo from a screen-grab of a 3 second video clip, a 3 second video which was taken of him leaving an arranged meeting with legal officials and being escorted with plain clothes police officers. That is unless you think that the other photo taken from facebook which was taken last year is 'evidence'. Your 'witnesses' were posters on other forums who were posting anecdotal evidence, one forum you were stealing supposed information from was Pattaya secrets and if this is your idea of 'witnesses' then don't give up your day job and keep sweeping those floors. In conclusion, your claims were unsubstantiated. You came on here half-cocked and posting anything you could get hold of from other forums to try and make yourself look like you had some sort of understanding of what is going on, in reality you don't have a clue, and yes it would definitely be wise to make that your last post here. Yes you're definitely losing the plot. Nobody has 'told you' anything.
  23. It's hit or miss on getting a deposit back in Thailand. I have had places give back no issues, others I had to hound for 4-5 weeks to get it back after I moved out and of course had one that refused to give anything back and tried to hit me with extra cleaning etc. You need to figure when renting a place you are going to loose the deposit.
  24. Today
  25. At the airport they dont fine you for 1 day.
