  1. I guess I should have been a bit clearer. I didn't mean they were sharing their fee with anyone, only that they, the embassy, was making money too.

    Foodland customer appreciation night

    Years ago Foodland hosted a wine tasting and free buffet for their customers. Originally it was held at the Foodland on Sukhumvit Soi 5 but then moved to the Foodland on Soi 16. It was held the weekend before Thanksgiving.
  3. The embassies were sharing the loot. The US embassy charged $50 or equivalent bhat for the letter.

    I think your best option would be to go to Khao Yai National Park. My wife and I have camped there many times over the years and the "cool" season is the best time to go. Tents and bedding are available to rent at both locations. They also have small charcoal cookers for rent and charcoal for sale. You will see many animals there too in the evening. Also located in the tourist center there are several restaurants. If possible do not visit the park over the weekend as it gets very crowded at that time.
  6. Thanks all for the replies. I guess the big unknown is will Immigration accept the embassy income letter come in March when I go for renewal. If they (Immigration) would not accept it then I would be screwed for the renewal as I would not have the time to deposit B800,000. Looks like my best option is to transfer B800,000 in December.
  7. My retirement visa expires on 10 April and I will probably go to Chang Wattana Immigration in mid-March to renew it. If I get the income letter from the US consulate in December, before they stop issuing them, will it still be accepted by Immigration in March? Seems I read some where that these letter were valid for 6 months from date of issue. I will be splitting the B800,000 between the income letter and bank letter for around B500,000 which I will have on deposit in December.
  8. Does anyone know when and where this years customer appreciation buffet will be?
  9. On 10 April 19 my retirement visa will expire. I like to go to Immigration to renew it about a month early so probably go around 10 March. The previous 20 years or so I used the embassy letter but this time I am going to go with the B800,000 deposit. My question is how far in advance should the 800,000 be on deposit? I have heard both 60 or 90 days.

    Thai will executor

    I will soon have a Thai will made leaving my condo in Pattaya to my son and Bangkok Bank account to my Thai wife. Can my Thai wife also be listed as the executor?
  11. This old saying comes to mind: If you're white you're alright. If you're brown stick around. If you're black , step back.

    Dog bite/rabies shots

    Last week my friend was bitten by his neighbors dog. Not a serious bite and the neighbor showed my friend that his dog had the rabies shots. Anyway my friend went and got the first and second shots. Since the dog had the rabies shot and after a few days showed no signs of rabies my friend decided to not get the remaining two shots. He and the dog are both ok. Of course had he been bitten by a rat or stray dog that he could not track then he would have gotten the rabies series of shots. So it seems pretty logical if the animal shows no rabid signs after a few days then dicontinuing the series would be ok?
