  1. i sold ours to a mate, and he paid me 3,000 baht. luckily he was a mate and trusted me that there was no debt on the company
  2. Thanks Jeab! and then going directly from a visa based on marriage to an education visa is perfectly ok you think? the reason i ask, is that i heard that changing a visa based on marriage to an education visa was not possible, and i first had to change to an O (or was it non O.....) visa, and then onto an education visa
  3. a 60 day extension would do great. i searched using google but could not find anything regarding the extension last night. Thanks for this information Elviajero :)
  4. My married visa expires on the 20th October, and my wife and i are divorcing soon after. I am 46, and would like to move across to an education visa. (I do already study thai, so it is legitimate). I went to the language school today, and they told me it was simple enough to do, but they would need to send the papers off to Prachuap, and the application normally takes about 3 weeks. I would therefore be past my married visa expiry date. Can i go to immigration and get a 30 day extension on my married visa, so as to allow plenty of time for my education visa to go through? Also, does anyone foresee any problems moving across from married to education visa using the steps i describe? the school tells me it will be plain sailing, but i guess they would................ Thanks in advance for any advice / help
  5. cha am, pak nam pran or prachuap city - all very nice promenades, and nice places to live too
  6. so you are saying, all other countries can afford safe alternatives to opioid painkillers, but the US cant / wont? i dont think that is the reason. i think that the pharma companies have very little regulation in the states and have been allowed to influence what doctors prescribe, and are causing this epidemic. the pharma companies benefit, and the doctors and clinics benefit, and the rest of the country suffers also, i actually thought that the opioid tablets were expensive in the states, and that is why many people end up using heroin instead, as it is cheaper
  7. What are other countries using then to deal with their patients who have chronic pain? it seems america are prescribing tablets that are causing huge problems. why dont they issue the same painkillers that other countries prescribe, and prevent this crisis getting even worse?
  8. why is it that america has this huge pharmaceutical opioid problem, but other countries have so far managed to avoid?
  9. there is nowhere in hua hin where you can walk along the sea front, and still be within the city, like you can on beach road in pattaya. this makes pattaya a much more attractive city. the town planning has let itself down in hua hin. being a city on the sea, but rarely being able to see the sea, will always make pattaya more attractive to many
  10. Hey Guys. I am meeting up with my mate from the UK on Wednesday in pattaya, and could do with some info from some of the regulars on here on some good things to do. I live in Hua Hin and he is on his first visit to Thailand. Both male, early 40's and from UK. No women in tow....... Can anyone recommend some good day time and night time activities please? Nighttime especially...... :) What are the best areas to take him for beers? We will be staying near soi 6! I am thinking Soi 6, Soi bukhao, LK Metro and walking street...... anyone recommend any other areas, or any specific bars / restaurants / gogos / clubs that are especially good fun and decent value at the minute please? Any tips greatly welcome....... PS i searched the first 10 pages of the forum but could not see a similar thread, but apologies if this has been done to death recently
  11. Hua Hin in 1987

  12. No Newsletter

    I have not had the newsletter email for a few days now. I checked my spam folder but it is not in there. Any ideas why please guys? Coffee in the morning isnt the same without it
  13. Place to fish in freshwater in Hua Hin ?

    There is also Khao Yai near to cha am, which is good for big fish. Plus, even better, and easier to fish, is Cha Am fishing Park. Only 200 baht a day. Loads of fish from 4 kg to 50 kg to be had. just copy the locals methods, and use bread as bait
  14. i am starting to forget what the topic was here............
  15. Hi Guys, can anyone recommend a good security system i can purchase on lazada / homepro etc please, that will act as a deterrent to potential burglars? My mate is a builder, so he and i will install it, but i would still prefer one that is relatively simple to install and maintain. We want one that has either 4 or 6 cameras, and will record all video into the cloud, or something similarly secure. Some cameras will be inside the house, and some outside, secured into the ceiling I guess We live in a single story villa, and getting into the roof is not a problem. Can anyone recommend something please, as i am pretty clueless on what the current market offers (there are so many to choose from!!) Thanks in advance if anyone can help
