  2. The peoples never learn I got so many cases like that when I was working for the TPD as a volunteer in Samui. The name of that guy doesn't sound very British.
  3. The Immigration process being followed is 100% legal. The Press is full of Nattering Nabobs of Negativism.

    Tearful apology from remorseful trio

    The practice of taking customers to overpriced shops for commissions is as old as ... the tuk tuks themselves. It has been going on here in Chiang Mai too, for as long as I can remember. Customer asks to be taken to place A and instead is taken to place B, where the driver gets (typically in Chiang Mai) 30% commission on any purchases, and or free gifts like meals or fuel. Nothing is done about it as it is considered legal. It is the shops themselves that are to blame of course. The twist in this case is the claim of 'sub-standard' goods at the shops in the article. It is that which may lead to prosecution, but don't hold your breath.
  7. One of the best things you can do for your children is give them the best education possible. The other side of this is that one of the worst things you can do for your child is give them a lousy education. Obviously, not everyone has the million odd baht a year that the best international schools charge, but if you have that sort of money, it's most likely worth it. The bottom line is that for most of us, the fees charged by the best international schools are beyond us which means you have to ask yourself seriously if you wish to send your kids to school in a Thai school, or bite the bullet and return home and educate them there...

    Tearful apology from remorseful trio

    Lower rank bribe-taking police officers awaits drastic punishment as long as we don't run out of inactive posts.

    Is Pattaya the real Thailand?

    You could substitute many nationalities for Thai in this observation and would ring true. Thailand is mostly Buddhist, and part of that is that this world is illusion, Maya. There is no real Thailand, UK, Russia, etc. It's what your mind makes it
  12. It can be 30 days in your by laws, but you would not be able to void a meeting or make resolutions passed in the meeting void if they did not send it 30 days before. The Condo Act supersedes your By Laws. The Act says interest is not to exceed X%. It is up to the Committee whether they want to leave it at that level or reduce it below that for any particular reason. I was involved in managing about 20 condominiums in Bangkok and Pattaya for 10 years, and have had pretty much every legal fight in the book and many out of the book. Obviously lawyer to lawyer and situation to situation is different, but we have used Baker & Mckenzie, DLA Piper, Tillke & G... and this seems to be the general advice with minor variances. I.e you can put what ever you want in your bylaws, but should their be dispute they will revert back to the Act, over and above what is in your bylaws.

    AIS? AIG?
  14. Hummin

    Testosterone, steroids, etc.

    What about Andriol testo caps, and Nebido? Do you have any experience with them? What is the risk with fake products?
  15. Going to be interesting to see how this eventuates but I have my reservations what the outcome will be ! Best of luck to the protesters
  16. Look at the “teachers”...in some schools they have not finished the academics from their home country. They have never taught in a school before. Then look at the curriculum in detail and what is being taught in the classroom....that is how you can tell if it’s worth the money.
  17. Thank you much appreciated .
  18. A well thought through, well argued and profoundly correct post. Trump and his most enthusiastic supporters will dismiss it, as they have shown themselves to be totally amoral. He belongs in the "trash can" of political history, along with his little fat North Korean friend and any number of equally amoral political leaders. I didn't care for Bill Clinton or George W Bush, but goodness me neither of them came close to poisoning the society they led, which is precisely what Trump is doing by taking children from their families and putting them in camps.

    Buriram to Siem Reap

    If you get a train or bus to Surin (about 50 Km's) there are regular minivans to Chong Chom from the bus station there. These vans also stop at Prasat and Kap Choeng (for immigration) so don't get off too early. I think you can also fly from Buriram to Siem Reap with Air Asia. As Diligad said, there are taxis from the Cambodian side to Siem Reap but they tend to be 'share' taxis so I'm told. Ta Prom, the Khmer temple reclaimed by the jungle, is outstandingly creepy...

  20. Has nothing to do with bad luck, just bad work and stupidity. Anyway its a tragic incident that should not have happened at all.
  21. What is "ORGANIC"? This world is already totally full of pesticides and herbicides, Thailand is one of the countries where the chemical industry still sale all the in EU and US forbidden products they use it in a very large amount. The Buddism is a religion that learns to love the nature but not in Thailand, here are the monks the biggest environmental criminals. Is not possible anymore to have organic food.
  22. You are so far off with that comment it is ridiculous.
  23. Expect a long queue as all numbers currently must be obtained from queue line 1 for 90 day reports and last week I got my number with no wait after extension at 1030 but number was 251 with 75 still in queue. I was very lucky to finnish at exactly 1200 (one number more and would have had to wait out 12-1300 lunch break). Just have your passport and tm47 (if previous reporting would also need last receipt). Simple 2-3 minute process once number is called if all in order.
