  1. Any thoughts on getting English/American movies and/or series with Thai subtitles
  2. Come on guys. This is an April Fools joke.
  3. I still don't understand why you'd want to commit to and pay for 30 years ahead but I guess it's your call. Property valuations on vary but the most common conversion to/from rental to/from value is to take the rental value and multiple by 150-200 to find the value or vice versa to establish a rental price. So your landlord has an asset worth 1.5m - 2.0m baht ( based on 10000 baht per month) . So something around those figures gives him a fair price for a 30 year lease and he still maintain ownership. Other suggestions about buying outright etc make more sense if you can persuade your landlord to do it but Thais are very reluctant sellers ( I'm assuming your landlord is Thai) so your 30 year lease idea might make more sense. Likewise though Thais have a poor record of sticking to contracts/agreements so take good care
  4. I don't understand why you would want a 30 year lease or why your landlord would want to grant one. So much can happen over 30 years (make up your own list but think what has happened over the past 30 years) that committing so far ahead is full of risk and from the landlord point of view the opportunity to increase rent every 3 years or so is reduced. I'd start by offering to enter to 3 year agreement at (say) 100,000 baht per year
  5. Can you believe it - just charged 135 baht ++ for a can of Coke at Landmark hotel , Bangkok. Heineken in their happy hour is120 baht a pint ++. Crazy. Rip off
  6. 2190 baht. Two hour turnround. 3 month warranty
  7. Thanks but hardly the replies I was looking for. As it happens I went to Dr Smartphone in Asok today and got it sorted
  8. My ipad3 battery is not retaining its power beyond 18 hours and I need to replace it. Can anyone suggest where I might go in BKK to get it replaced based on personal experience please.

  10. Don't know about the Euro but I brought £ 's in last week at 53.
  11. Same as many others . UK bank account, Bangkok address - no problem

  13. Scotthai. Not true. 365 Sporthas all matches- usually 6 on a Saturday, 3 on a Sunday and 1 on a Monday (Tuesday morning) . Slight delay I agree but otherwise live. It also records all the games so you can watch one game 'live' and the remaining matches later if you wish.
  14. Not sure who will get the contract but I'll be watching via 365 Sport ( on line streaming) . It costs a lot less than True Sport or CTH and has much more sport on offer than just the EPL . All the EPL games were shown this past season many of which were in HD
  15. Why not follow the example of Indonesia.? That'll fix the prison problem.
