  1. Past hour
  2. Penang Visa Run Report

    I did not inquire about agents. I know there's a couple in town, and I definitely saw them picking up passports. Banana Penang and Jim's Place are the names I hear come up frequently.
  3. the funniest thing is these are the boses.
  4. So few jobs....big trash problem....Trash = jobs = clean beaches = more toursits = more jobs etc etc etc......
  5. I always wanted to have my face published in the Thai media . My finger has been waiting for an occasion like this, Oh well , maybe next time.
  6. The EU also calculates Brexit a la Boris - the EU could go and whistle. Could be that this is much more lucrative for the EU? Banks, finance, insurance and b2b service companies can move quickly. Then follow the airlines, which must have one year in advance planning security. Finally, production shifts. The three tax paradises Jersey, Isle of man, Guernsey could be closed without UK veto. More Border guards have to be paid anyway. Would also be a scenario.
  7. Penang Visa Run Report

    Thank you cacahootie Did you even ask around about using agents?
  8. I don't understand. I have watched the video. Why did the Indian let that ugly ladyboy face kiss and hug him ? He did nothing! He asked for it ! Stupidity comes to mind. That's why people like myself never gets in trouble , we use the brain when needed.
  9. If a mechanic is a job reserved for Thais why have I never seen one? I have seen monkeys pretending to be a mechanic.
  10. I tried livng very cheap for 1 month

    I don't find it interesting, it is of that kind of people, who cannot live a decent live in their home country. Thailand is full of such farangs, who run away from the home country in the hope to make a better living in Thailand, but since prices go up and up it becomes more difficult every year. I fully unterstand Thai immigration that they do not want people without medical care insurance and spend as little as possible, doing visa runs, etc. They are the reason why immigration laws are tightened every year. Anyone, who wants to spend little money, is in the wrong country. Vietnam, Laos and Indonesia are quite a lot cheaper and have less stringent immigration laws.
  11. Actually plastic is a worldwide problem , the beaches in Australia , in America and the pacific islands are also experiencing a lot of plastic in the ocean that eventually will end up on the beaches. I am not so sure the plastic bottles that ended up on wongamat beach are produced in Thailand, they can travel a long distance.
  12. Penang tourist visa, March 2017

    I posted a detailed report recently:
  13. Chelsea Fc Thread

    Now that is what you call being completely and utterly told. That's like one of those Archie back handers that. Slapped straight back to his school years with that one.
  14. Does Buddha lives in Thailand?" Not with out a work permit and 90 day reports!
  15. Actually there are some foreigners with the correct work visas that are allowed here. In some restaurants , kitchen chef in 5 star hotels., doctors / specialists in hospitals, IT-people in specialized jobs and of course teachers. They all have a work permit. Foreign mechanics are probably working illegally and are aware of the risks..
  16. I don't know about KL, but Penang did not require any hotel booking, and neither does Vientiane.
  17. Pattaya to become marine leisure hub of Asia

    A sad but succinct and honest appraisal.
  18. No but it can be interdependent
  19. Thank you, John McCain. Again.
  20. McCain Announces Opposition to Republican Health Bill, Likely Dooming Its Fate WASHINGTON — Senator John McCain of Arizona announced on Friday that he would oppose the latest proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act, leaving Republican leaders with little hope of succeeding in their last-ditch attempt to dismantle the health law. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/22/us/politics/mccain-graham-cassidy-health-care.html?emc=edit_na_20170922&nl=breaking-news&nlid=76310506&ref=cta
  21. I wonder if the multi billionaire owners of super yachts will even think about Pattaya as a destination ?
  22. Well , the Russians doesn't seem to mind the trash , they even swim in it. When I walked along the beach a few days ago , it looked really bad but plenty of Russians and Chinese around couldn't care less.
  23. it must be hell for the % of good cops
  24. This is a serious movie script. Charge the reporters for comments darron seriously they will be swarming very soon (Global). How he fake his own death?
  25. The two National Parks near us changed signage at the entranceways in 2013, stating the lower price was for "Thai ID Card Holders Only". And to make their point, my partner had to produce hers ... being near Cambo border we can't have those pesky Khmers in as locals can we? That should be clear enough and reduce the amount of times the ticket staff are confronted by a moaning foreigner claiming his driver's licence somehow makes him a local But of course "it's the principle" as stated in a thousand threads already on dual-pricing...
