    New? Police check address and picture of farang NE

    All kidding aside. If it was the “Immigration Police” they are just doing their job. If on a retirement/non-o with family extension (you did say 90 day check in’s) , there is a requirement to have pictures of you/home/family in your file. If it’s any other “police” its a scam waiting to happen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just tell them all the $$ are gone. Everyone left around the next month are worth keeping. If you are alone then run away, quickly. Their only job is you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    looking for house to rent

    Agreed. Forget about the cable TV. Look into IPTV and a good set top box running kodi. You will be much happier and save $$$ or BBB. Many other threads on IPTV. I use NFPS out of Belieze. Mostly US,UK, and Spanish tv. $100 yr for everything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sewing machines/Sewing courses

    Try a little Janome machine. We picked one up in the sewing section at Robinsons at a Central Mall. It not overly complicated like some, but a strong little machine. Wife liked it so much we got one for our house in US too. The strange thing is it was 5000baht in Thailand and $99 in US. Half the price and its made in Thailand. Go figure. As for the training sorry I know Ubon/Warin/Kantharaluk area and not Korat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Used Isaan house "check list" recommendations

    The list is quite long. Is the plumbing vented? If not when it rains hard you have sewer smell in house. Are the electrical outlets 2 wire or 3 wire? Electrical service only supplies 2 wire, hot and return. You have to drive a copper rod for your own ground ( earth for the Brits ). Electrical panel one big breaker or a actual panel with separate circuits? Look at wire sizes to determine load ability. Water heaters and oven pull the most. Minimum wire size would be 2.5mm. A\C would be ok on a 2mm branch if its not loaded with too much other stuff. Remember that the standard entrance is only about 66amps/220v/50hz. So you can’t cook in the oven,shower with hot water, and run 3 big a/c units at the same time. Lastly most homes have leaky windows(air , not water) and no insulation, so cooling is a task. Sorry I got so wordy. Thai home are usually built strong with concrete post and beam. Good luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    looking for house to rent

    Alot of the more rural areas may also have 3BB dsl. Useable 16down/6up about 600 baht/mo. Wife sister has it 10 miles outside Kantharluk. Find your land and house then look for phone lines on the nearest pole. That would be a good indicator. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Isaan for 2 month “working” holiday?

    Learn thai in isaan, speak it in Bangkok. They will call you “country boy”. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Have you checked out D and D Properties? Website and apps for phone. A real Realestate agent ( no pun intended) is few and far between. Their is John at Ubon homes, but that’s the wrong side of Isaan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
