  1. Past hour
  2. What does the lack of evervescence indicate?
  3. No, it's his son about to be parachuted into a safe Labour seat.
  4. "He said that in his experience King Cobras cause no problems for people". Why did they not print his whole sentence, " no problems for people living in condos above the 20th floor in the centre of Bangkok".
  5. Well if this is correct i would certainly be doing it this way but dont forget about the finishings top side I made a 3x3 wading pool but that was with "A" class finishing, above ground from re enforced concrete maybe 200,000 pending finishes which would work out cheaper
  6. Be sure - they will manage to screw up this one also !
  7. Hope the crowd did not applaud thinking it was part of the show Nothing like realism these days to get crowd reaction
  8. You can find the nearest Post Office offering this service by using their Branch Finder and checking "Home Office Biometric Enrolment" in the "Refine branch services (optional" drop down box. The certified translations used for the initial visa application can be used again for both FLR and ILR applications, even if they were done in Thailand; they can also be used for a British citizenship application and any other official purpose in the UK. There is no need to get new ones. One of the problems being that the same form is used by several categories of applicant; including those on the old 2 year route, i.e. those who made their initial spouse/partner visa application before 9th July 2012, those on the current 5 year route, i.e. those who applied for their initial spouse/partner visa on or after 9th July 2012, and those who entered the UK with a fiance visa and are now applying for FLR after the marriage. So not all parts of the form and guidance will be relevant to all applicants and both require careful reading to find out which parts are relevant to you and which are not. Very; thank you.
  9. If you was to read his post he is getting off the beer. Why save up 400k don't remember anywhere that says he hasn't got that. Just he uses non o visa's or is that why as you think if on non o have no money!!!
  10. Once again, I really do advise you to become clear in your mind on the differences between visa, permission to stay, and extension. It seems as though in the short term you are doing the right thing: applying for an extension of stay after 6 May 2017 and before you leave on 23 May 2017. The "making it multi entry" is actually the process of getting a multiple entry reentry permit to keep your permission to stay intact when you leave and reenter the country. The trouble with muddling through, not really understanding what is happening, is that there is great scope for messing up in the future if dealing with immigration officials who are not as helpful in holding your hand through the process.
  11. Not one individual knew how to throw a proper punch in that embarrassing 4-minute clip. In fact, I think that's what saved the pathetic, slapping perps from getting a hiding since they were no threat to anyone.
  12. May be you didn't notice that for the first round, every poll was right , all said Macron first, 1-2 points ahead of Le Pen ; French polls are often right don't forget that FN has no political friends, that's why she asks the voices of Dupont-Aignan ( less than 5 % ) : she has the same followers for many years but is unable to get new people ( let's say 30 % , not enough to win ) , people who vote Le Pen are or not much educated people or desesperate people and they believe all her lies and are naive, she is a " bourgeoise ", don't forget , she doesn't care of " le peuple "
  13. Thailand has many high flyers
  14. Or as an alternative just visit Scotland a when lot nicer and no pathetic EU directives to worry or read (or not) about. Or !!!as stated in my previous posts.
  15. Hello, My ex wife agrees to give me the right to stay legally in the home I paid before. What is the thai name (thai script if possible) of the usufruct that I need to ask the officers at Hua Hin Land Department ? Anything I need to know ? Thanks
  16. just checking skyscanner, for a trip back to the UK came up £460, went through all the details about to add my card details and this company added £84 . (like they were waiting for me) sorry pal, not having that, i have e mailed them as to why in a millisecond the price goes up by £84
  17. Sadly this is how low people can sink to these days. There are actually websites out there that theme the sufferings, tragedies and traumas of people and animals for the entertainment of others. These websites are even sponsored by advertisers. The Internet has become a platform for the ghoulish behaviours of the sick minded of society. Could you imagine that there are people who actually promote victims of tragedy as entertainment? Well, this is exactly what is happening and there are many cashing in on it. How would anyone feel seeing a nearest and dearest, murdered, death by accident or raped on the Internet? The worst part is that these sorts of material are easily accessible to the young, the brain dead, psychos and the crank elements that take in this stuff with complacency. Yet; the powers that be which try to control what we can see and what we cant see online are treating this fairly new sick phenomenon as low priority. As far as I know, no one as yet has been prosecuted for uploading such evil and depraved images online? And until there are protests for the closing down of such websites and social media and the whole thing made illegal, this practice will continue and will become more widespread.
  18. BMA really not in charge of traffic offences. Always amazes me when BMA officers on lower Sukhumvit gots some foreigners and find them 2000 Baht for littering a cigarette on the road but next to it are the Thai's who do excactly the same but dont get find at all.
  19. It really depends on the mindset you develop after a few weeks here. I've lived here for 8 years now, and most days are an adventure for me. Plus on a part pension and investment income, I can live as well as I want to here. Yes, there are minor irritations here. But some bring benefits. For example, the chaotic traffic ensures one is delaying the onset of Ahlzheimers. I don't feel unwelcome here at all. If you can speak passable Thai and are not kiniow ( stingy ) Thailand is your oyster. Oops, perhaps I should not use a seafood analogy in view of some of the posts already made. Chacun a son gout.
  20. Navy spokesman Admiral Jumpol Loompikanon said the Thai navy owned four Japanese submarines nearly 60 years ago, so new submarines were necessary to protect the country's maritime interests. So, is he admitting that the country's maritime interests have been unprotected for the last 60 years? If so, somone at the top should be due for an inactive post and he could spend a major part of it in the first submarine, which will no doubt shorty be moored (or sunk) alongside the aircraft carrier as a further tourist attraction. After all, what's 36 billion baht between friends, particularly as the economy is in such good shape?
  21. Sorry if I misunderstood, but.. Why would anyone subscribe to Truvision for football? Channel 36 shows MUCH more and it's free.
  22. THAILAND LIVE

    Paradise lost – Hua Hin peace shattered by “Party Houses” Residents in Hua Hin are facing shattered lives as “Party Houses” are springing up all over town. Full Story: https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/980219-paradise-lost-–-hua-hin-peace-shattered-by-“party-houses”/
  23. Nothing new here, 5-6 thai guys against one old security guard. Disgusting behavior, hope this <deleted> get arrested and locked up forever.
  24. Paradise lost – Hua Hin peace shattered by “Party Houses” Residents in Hua Hin are facing shattered lives as “Party Houses” are springing up all over town. Rather than going for long term rental contracts people with property to spare are opting for renting their houses out for wild parties on a nightly basis. They have found they can make much more money by letting partygoers take over their property for a wild night often including noisy karaoke and pool well into the morning. Some people have been forced to leave their own homes and sleep elsewhere. While yet more others who want to sell up and move away are unable to do so as buyers get wind of the problem, often in classy residential estates. There are also claims that the parties feature more than booze – one Australian man spoke of one house being used for illegal drugs. Requests for action to the police and local council have achieved nothing and now residents at their wits end have turned to Thaivisa to publicize the issue before things potentially turn violent. One man affected is British retiree Paul Fearnley, 57 who moved to Thailand with his wife Stella, 66, three and a half years ago. They previously lived in Lincolnshire. He was expecting a quiet idyllic lifestyle in Thailand but instead it has turned into a daily nightmare of noise and ever increasing problems and frustrations. He said that there are two houses in the “Sunshine Mountain 1” housing estate that are being rented out as party houses after the owners realized they could make a killing. One is owned by a Thai couple and the other Australian/Thai. “Both properties have moved in karaoke machines,” he said, “and one even has a pool table. That has made the screaming from that place even worse for some reason”. He said that the problem has been going on for a long time but has been even worse recently with the Songkran holidays meaning parties every night – and no sleep for any of the neighbors. “We have friends who just go and stay elsewhere during the parties – they can’t sleep. “And it is not just in our housing estate,” he claimed. “This is happening all over Hua Hin. Just down the road from us in another new estate they have it even worse than we do”. Police have been called on numerous occasions but while that means the noise goes down temporarily it is soon cranked up again when officers leave. There have even been reports of partygoers’ waste such as bottles and cans being dumped in neighbors’ bins because the ones at the party houses were overflowing. The partygoers are all Thais he said. “A friend of ours is trying to sell up and move away,” said Paul, “but when prospective buyers find out about the party houses they are no longer interested in moving in”. The council has been called in by Thai people living in Paul’s estate - that currently has just 19 properties – but while promises are made to take action nothing concrete has taken place. “Our peace has been shattered”, said Paul, “And the problem is now all over Hua Hin and the authorities must take action”. While he told Thaivisa that there have been no threats to people at this stage he admitted that it could turn nasty if something is not done. Meanwhile, the situation for an Australian couple in Soi Green Shop off Pala U Road is probably even worse. Electronic engineer Peter Merz and his wife Paula, both 72, have a party house right next door to their two story property as well as another one just 40 meters away. “It is impossible to describe how unbearable this situation is,” Peter told Thaivisa on Tuesday. “Next door there has been a party almost every night since the beginning of March”. Peter, who had lived in Bangkok for ten years and has been in Hua Hin for seven said that only being able to go to friends’ houses has kept the couple sane. They have only slept in their own home twice since the beginning of April, he said. His neighbor is a Thai man who refuses to discuss the matter instead referring the couple to an agent. Speaking about the noise from the pool area as well as a pool table set up in the home he said that sleeping was impossible and that 5 to 6am endings for the parties were par for the course. In addition the houses were not built for large numbers often up to 20 persons – consequently he said that the septic tank had overflowed sending the smell of awful waste over to his side of the fence. This prompted the agent to make alterations but the noxious smells continued unabated. “The more whisky and beer they drink the louder it gets,” said Peter. “And I have also observed the use of illegal drugs on more than one occasion”, he claimed. -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2017-4-25
