  1. The Pintsman Pub on Silom is Closed?

    Anyone knows where to drink a cold pint at affordable price (100THB-120THB) on Sukhumvit or Silom, before 9 PM in a clean environment like Hemingway was? I cannot afford the beer in Thailand anymore, overprice compare to Vietnam and Cambodia.
  2. I went to The Pintsman Pub on Silom Road to reserve a table for Christmas, New Year 2018 and their fifth Anniverary soon on 17 Jan. There are no signs on the premises to indicate why it is closed and huge chains have been rolled over each door. The O'Reilly also on Silom road has been demolished, anyone knows why all those excellent bars are being closed or destroyed? Also the fine excellent Hemingway Bar on Sukhumvit is gone and the white Swan had to move to an adjacent Soi along massages parlors. Is it a new Bangkok policy to direct tourists towards prostitutes den like Patpong, Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza? By the way Thaivisa announced today that one waitress was killed today on Soi Cowboy and dragged in a nearby building. What is happening to our quiet and affordable bars with newspapers to read, good Thai secretaries customers and sports on TV to enjoy in this business District on Silom Road?
  3. My son did his high school in French in Thailand until age 17, his marks and aspiration for a good future were poor. He then went to Canada to get a degree. Now graduated, he only thinks to attain success in life by doing business. It is a passion for him, he works hard but so far he is doing good and he is very happy in Canada. He has many international friends but few Canadian friends. To us, he is more happy in living in Canada but still loves Thailand for the entertainment scene. He has dual citizenship. For us Thailand seems to be a dangerous place for a young man, we are happy that he is living in a safe Canada environment.
  4. 8-year German expat with no passport deported

    I infer that He was likely supporting a thai family but ran on a tough time in his life here like so Many. I would drink with such a criminal without hesitation, unlike many african working the street of sukhumvit with impunity under the eyes of all to see... In any case, he is a survivor and he will do well anywhere else in this world. Of course the law is for all to be followed, i kind of feel sorry all the same for him.
  5. Special Privileges for Thaivisa Customers at ShowDC in Bangkok

    I wondered who own all those empty shopping Mall in Bangkok? They are now destroying the charms of Sukhumvit from Emporium to Soi 14, I hear soon to Soi 8. British Embassy soon also going. Do they think that tourists do not have shopping centers in their country except the Laotian, Cambodian and Vietnamese? All Thai people that used to live on Sukhumvit were forced to sell and they now left this area. Why all the construction / destruction of Thailand heritage? Also food stalls are disappearing, any thought for the hard working poors?
  6. Has anyone recently done a Thai Will?

    I simply copy a will form from internet, I filled it up and made it sign by 2 adults Thai nationals, i.e. my landlady and the guard downstairs. Apparently it is legal this way. If you are legally married to a Thai then all your assets will automatically go to your wife and children in the advent that a will is not made. You do not need a law firm to write a will for you, a will in English is sufficient.
  7. However the warning is useful for people driving in the area where visibility will then be reduced as it once happened to me, it rained so much that continuing driving was becoming dangerous. It has all to do with safety when the windshield wipers cannot cope with the volume of rain. If you go slower you can get rear end and if you continue driving you cannot see where you are going... very unpleasant situation.
  8. BOI company - need advice

    I was Operating Manager of an Oil Services Company in Africa, it was customary to have all invoices sent and paid within 90 days. Even our best clients, all in the top 100 companies in the world, were paying only on the last day of this 90 days. You may be the only one asking for payment within 30 days which forced them to use their small cash account (box...) designed for daily operations instead of their approved monthly operating expenditure Funds. If you threaten them legally you will simply loose their business...
  9. The owner has offered a reward but the finder thought to be honest was a perfect reward and he kindly refused.
  10. Last month my 23 year old son came to visit us from Canada for 14 days. My son is Thai and he has a Thai driving License. My car has 2 registered insured drivers, my wife and myself. I simply called my car insurance and requested that they changed my wife as a driver for my son as the new insured driver for the two weeks period then automatically all went back to normal once the two weeks were done. All for a fee of 50 Baht... Better be safe than sorry especially in Thailand.
  11. This post is simply a disguise advertisement for this lawyer, there are no information other than to say that there are 2 types of divorces: UNCONTESTED DIVORCE and CONTESTED DIVORCE.
  12. I had to go twice a week from Sathorn Road to Rama 6 Ramathibodi hospital for 6 months, I can say that 80% of the time, the taxi drivers tried to cheat me by going through their way instead of my way which is faster, they act in a threatening way, they have no change when at destination, they let me on the road once because apparently not enough gasoline which was a lie, one fell asleep at traffic light, one was pulling his facial hairs at traffic lights with 2 baht coins, one tried to keep the change from 100 Baht at highway toll. Come on Thailand, when will you have a school for taxi drivers like they have in most other countries? The first impression of any tourists are when they board their first taxi from airport to hotel...
  13. Lorry should have full length lights on their side, with new LED technology it would be a very cheap improvement on the vehicle law.
  14. Maybe they should change visa requirements for tourists relative to how many are in jail in Thailand then this is not discrimination, only retribution.
  15. In Control panel, simply check Device manager and if none are red, then your hardware is OK.
