  1. Past hour
  2. people from India came to and went to that road place in Bkk where you can get anything before going UK. only joking.
  3. Agreed always put MU all letter parcells from all over the world get to me ok.
  4. As your wife appears to be the main bread-winner with a good career and would clearly miss her family if you moved away "to the sea", I think you should stay where you are. Your family could be worse off if your wife could not find such a well-paid position and she would undoubtedly, as a poster suggested, want to visit her family often, either with you or alone, in addition to which they might want to stay with you occasionally, which could present accommodation problems. Living near the sea always sounds great but many people who do so, rarely visit the beach after the initial attraction wears off and most would not want to swim in the heavily polluted waters in some locations. I would advise that you confine yourself to occasional visits to beach resorts for holidays etc. and keep your wife happily living close to her family and present job. If she were to end up by moving to a less satisfying job and to missing her family terribly, she would always tend to blame you for what she might consider as your selfish action in "making" her move. I developed a good career in the UK and my wife, two kids and I enjoyed a pretty good relationship and lifestyle, but that did not prevent her going off with a guy she had only known for a few months after 37 years of marriage, with the excuse that I "worked too hard", even though for the last 22 years I worked from home. It was no consolation to me at all, when after two years, the divorce and the equal division of the proceeds of all our assets, including our home and my business and future pensions, she wanted to return as she had "made a terrible mistake". This is, of course, nothing like your own position, but it does illustrate how easily you can be blamed for trying to do what you believe is best for your family.
  5. Let me assist using mine as an example: Mine was issued 17 October 2016 and I have to enter before 16 October 2017 to activate the visa, this is also the date my visa expires. Between these dates I can come and go as I please with no re-entry permit required. Each time I enter I will get an entry stamp for 1 year ( - 1 day ) in the future. I came back to Thailand yesterday and you can see my stamp 21 Jun 2017 - Admit until 20/06/2018 So, in my case, i can stay in Thailand until 20/06/2018. BUT: I need to use a re-entry permit after 16 October 2017 when my visa expires and I am on permission to stay. Then on, or before, 20/06/2018 I need an extension of my permission to stay. I will have 1 year and 8 months from a 1 year visa, if I re-enter before 16 October 2017 it will effectively become 2 years. BUT IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER: 1st year is a multi entry visa. 2nd year is permission to stay and requires re-entry permits.
  6. I would recommend just getting a Truemove prepaid sim (they sell them at 7-11)... Put it in a cellphone and get it activated and data capable... sign up for the 1.5gb plan for 199 baht a month... once it works on the phone take it out and put it in the iPad... Truemove has an app called H Life that will let you see balances and admin the account ;-)
  7. I wish the dear police and military would devote as much time to preventing mayhem and death on the roads as they do trying to curb activities that generally only affect the participants and usually the experience is positive and I am not talking about guns Total hypocrisy and humbug
  8. call it a gift ( an be ready for the other distant family members lining up for the same deal)
  9. this place is such a mess that a PM has to micro-manage ?
  10. Yeah, sorry. Never partaken if you get my drift, so the terms were unfamiliar.
  11. Oh Mr Dark Lord do you now get the feeling you ain't wanted here?
  12. hahaha; the smart people say it wont work; military generals vs. smart people
  13. You may be better off asking this in the GPS forum - or asking a mod to move it?
  14. The fact you haven't seen it doesn't mean its not true. I HAVE seen it and its not pretty. Seen people beaten unconscious, a shooting and all of the aggression you would associate with a night out in Southend. Another rosy tinted tourist.

  19. OMG and the only on to pick the Hawks tonight.....more arse than class.....
  20. That would depend on the airport, wouldn't it.
  21. Depends on what the document is for If for a US govermnent agency, Sheryl is correct, but if it is just a civil matter, any English speaking attorney in Thailand can serve as a notary Mine has a certificate, in English, that explains this and is submitted with the notarized document. Sold some property in the US and it was accepted without question
  22. Hi All, Very useful thread and very informative. Quick question, I took the oath of allegiance on Tuesday. Any idea how fast RTG publishing and naturalization certificate issuance should run from here? I know it is not possible to say with total accuracy, but educated guesses are appreciated.
  23. Only, most of the voters did not vote for him. Not when referring actual votes cast, not when referring all potential voters. Some sure did for the reasons outlines above, for many others it was simply a default choice. But the main group simply didn't exercise voting rights. I think that's more worrisome when it comes to democracy. People losing interest or hope that change can be affected can bring about grave consequences. A buffoon like Trump being elected is not the worst possible outcome. Enough to imagine a version of Trump that can actually deliver.
  24. An umbrella that has more holes in it than a tramp's second-best suit. They couldn't regulate the metaphorical p___s up.
