  1. I usually get there about 1.15pm and expect to be out by 2.00pm
  2. Sky news blacked out

    Thanks all. Yes the problem seems to be via YouTube. IPTV is ok. Will try linking direct to Sky News website
  3. Sky news blacked out

    This morning Sky News seems blacked out - the error message says 'uploader not accessible in your country' Anyone else having this problem or know what's going on?
  4. Alternatives to Truevision

    Any thoughts on getting English/American movies and/or series with Thai subtitles
  5. Come on guys. This is an April Fools joke.
  6. Formula for monthly rent into 30-year lease?

    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
  7. Formula for monthly rent into 30-year lease?

    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
