    Laminated copy of passport

    It takes about 3 minutes, costs 40 baht and it's waterproof. I've even used mine at Bangkok Bank when renewing accident insurance. Plus you don't ruin your wallet. But no one is forcing anybody to do it, live free or die.

    I've used the same guy for years as well, I think the price is 40 baht, he also has a two for price.

    More Pheu Thai members shifting to sister party

    Ah, the TRC, not to be confused with PTP, TRT or the other one that I have forgotten. They all had one thing in common though, they all became a lot richer at the expense of the country.

    Where can I get Nitrogen in Chiang Mai

    I hope you aren't making an exit bag. It is not my business but I urge you to get help if you are. Take care

    Supreme Patriarch spared asset rule

    The Wat in my village recently purchased a plot of land across the street for 1,000,000 baht. My wife now informs me that there will be a meeting to ask villagers to donate 2,000 baht per talang wa which would yield a profit of more than 1,000,000 baht. The wat has already more than doubled in size in the last 12 years.

    Should read: This way, current council members will have more time to hide their assets.

    TM30 during Weekend?

    If I remember correctly, the home owner fills out a TM28, the renter is responsible for the TM30. I think the entire thing is about taxation rather than immigration.

    CM to Hua Hin Road Trip

    This may not be exactly what you're looking for but it supplies distances and times between cities and towns. I like to sit down and write distances between destinations before we leave. https://distancecalculator.globefeed.com/Thailand_Distance_Calculator.asp

    Where to buy good quality car battery in Chiang Mai?

    There are quite a few FB battery outlets in Chiang Mai. When my lead acid battery weakened in my Vigo I stopped at the one just west of the Ping river on Mahidol road, they were going to install another lead acid battery but put in a gel battery at my request. They were quick and used leads to maintain power to the vehicle which keeps power to the computer, radio and clock so resets are not required.

    The best chicken fried steak in Chiang Mai

    Looks and sounds delicious. Flattening the meat with a hammer or tenderizer is what makes it affordable, you don't have to buy a premium cut of beef for a chicken fried steak. My father used to shoot a moose in the fall and we would eat it all winter. My mother would beat the heck out of the tougher cuts and make swiss steak, as she called it.
  13. I'm completely against this idea, with barriers in place Thai drivers wouldn't be able to make U turns anywhere they want. That is a contradiction of the Thai edict that every Thai must follow his own path. Try to imagine the agony of a nation that can't make U turns on busy freeways and blind curves. Is nothing sacred?
  14. Or, as a former leader said, "the United Nations is not my father". Not a fan of oversight either I guess.
  15. Is there a credible reason for not allowing observers? To quote my dear, long departed mother, "if you're not doing anything wrong, what does it matter".
