  1. Past hour
  2. Visa run to Malaysia

    One of the remarks was that i already had too many stamps in my passport. These were all stamps from 1 year extensions for my non-0 marriage (2013-2017) and a transfer of visa from my old to new passport in 2012. Apparently for this IO it does not make any difference. They are stamps, so....
  3. just a toddler having little pee pee...... stop trying to make something from nothing Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  4. Is that position, with feet up in the air, not more uncomfortable than putting them under the seat in front, due to blood leaving the feet.
  5. Junta committee insists on role in media reform

    Maybe check translation. "Repression" better choice than "reform". “I insist that authority has to participate in media affairs.” ... Already do: make absurd statements and policy, then media must figure out how to report without facing draconian defamation laws.
  6. It is a forum. I think this thread is relatively interesting compared to the usual 'should I date a bar girl' stuff. I hope we find out what happens.
  7. Kim Jong- Prayuth, my hero!
  8. Yes I do think that the GDP has been stimulated with all those new massive programs and loans have been taken out for those. That will have to be paid back at some time. Question is will those massive programs bear fruit or are a waste of money. Because the proceeds in future will benefit who is then in power as will the debt hurt those who are then in power. Still Thailands overal debt is relatively low (though should love to know the current 2017 figure 4th quarter) To see how it has changed since 2016. http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/Economy/30325763
  9. wasting tax payers money for "arrest" who is carrying cannabis, which ie well known to have been used over 3000 years and its an excellent drug on several pathologies, such Parkinson, Diabetes, Cancer, Leukemia, and many more. Countries shall stop to be voluntary or involuntary influenced by Big Pharmas, legalize the medical and recreational use of Cannabis, as well it will help to end the mafia behind the illegal trade.
  10. My favourite has to be the time I saw 2 Thai workers, 30 foot off the ground; balancing precariously on a 1 inch metal beam, whilst trying to one-handedly hang one of those 'Safety First' banners you now see on construction sites. You couldn't make this stuff up.
  11. The Hit And Run Restaurant "review" Thread

    Up to you. Why? I also have been three times. They may need to expand as they are getting popular. For people that like Northern Thai food in Pattaya, it's their loss not to go. Not to even mention I think they are actually UNDER-PRICED for the quality level. There is quirk I want to share though. On my last visit ordering water they asked if I want it cold. I always want it cold, so yes. So what they did was serve a huge bucket of ice as if I was having a bottle of whiskey. Cost more than the water. So heads up on that.
  12. Low Ridership on Bell Bus to Pattaya

    You are wrong. There are there if they have buses running throughout the day. You could have just called them and asked about the seat availability. If seats were available, they have an electronic device for their own use. I did just that and got on the bus. Sometimes you need to use your loaf.
  13. wanting to learn basic south words

    some more, heard today, and thought yeh, I didn’t learn that in any books. “arai ga” อะไร ก่า” it is similar to “arai ah” don’t know if that is standard. But I think all of us have heard question particle “ah อะ” before. I have only heard “ga” used with “arai ga” “pa nan” พะนั่น - this can be used in “arai pa nan” to mean “something like that” I guess standard Thai could say “arai baeb nan” “อะไรแบบนั่น” where แบบ baeb = like, so “pa” is used instead Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  14. Just called them.... TiT said .... “fake news.... beachs beautiful... here is picture to prove it!”
  15. Impeaching tRump would be a great start.
  16. Having a look around for some tyres for my bike. All of the shops here seem to carry no stock. Seen a couple of options on Lazada look like reasonable price and brand (Metzeler, Pirelli). I'm not after super performance...just good value and safety. Local guys quoting around 5500 baht up. Would I be ok buying these and having them fitted? Current tyres are 110/17 54S and 140/17 66S I note the Metzelers say 54H and 66H. Current tyres are 54S and 66S. What does H or S mean? Reccomendations?
  17. Pool steps safe or not.

    Hi sappersrest! I agree with you upto some extent. A double tread pool step is very safe and easy to enter or exit the swimming pool. But there many other options also which are more safe like the one - Curve Step System for inground pools, Ladder Mats and step pads for pool liner protection. and these all are available online in a very affordable cost also.
  18. I think that could be true. I have been with a fair few English women when I was younger / university who were certainly good, but also some others who were definitely like you said. It obviously isn't true for all, but there definitely is something that Asian women have when it comes to it. Admittedly, I have only been with Thai women, but pretty much all of them just have that 'thing' in the bedroom. I really do think that transcends to other Asian countries too. They just ooze sexual appeal, and can really live up to it. I think western women either try too hard to portray that false image, or if they do have that appeal, they seem to think they're an absolute goddess without any reason.

  20. get a slap on the wrist 'fer sure!
  21. LOL. They can't use those lifeguard towers as they are made of metal and would be too hot to sit on. No doubt a nice earner for someone though. The only thing they need to do is put up signs in several languages warning that swimming there is a hazard to life and health. Swimming in sewage is never a good idea. If someone still wants to do so it's on their own head.
  22. Guess that depends on if they hired a new Cambodian chef recently !
