  1. Any experience with visa on arrival in Hanoi from Thailand, does the waiting time at the counter in Hanoi airport counter rapid, say less than 30 min? Otherwise I will make the tourist visa in Bangkok.
  2. Thank you, I will do it in BKK then, in case..
  3. It is not a good idea to carry cash while transiting countries going home. What the law says and what the custom officials do are often two different things, corruption is rife at borders... A SWIFT is the way to go.
  4. severe pain in both shoulders

    To hide the pain with Diclophenac is not the solution. In another topic, Sheryl you were right, cataract surgery under local anesthetic does not hurt at all., the surgery took 5 min. Thank you for your advice.
  5. severe pain in both shoulders

    Ah ah ah! Well site Geologist, I sleep on location but in a very comfortable setting traveling by helicopter... Often we are given a foam mattress, not a Leesa mattress.
  6. I simply put facts, not alternative facts... The result is there for all to see. Let the market dictate the best rate for the Baht. Confidence in a country also count, you want the goods to be delivered... This also forced the exporter to improve the quality of their product in order to compete in the market place.
  7. It was false to say that the Baht strengthening was hurting export. All told, a sliding Baht is a sign of failing confidence in the prospects of Thai assets. When the Baht begins a bullish rebound, we’ll know that faith in Thailand as a place to invest and do business is also on the rise. From Asiachart.
  8. severe pain in both shoulders

    This is my case but we never know, it might apply for you. At work I was given a very soft mattress and this caused severe back and shoulder pain during following days. I simply changed the mattress for a harder one then all was ok, no more Voltaren pills. The doctor did not know the cause of my pain.
  9. Eyes - Floaters

    I had the same symptoms then a retinal detachment followed, also i was diagnosed with high pressure...
  10. You can update your bank statement via ATM on the spot when at Chaeng Wattana. I always do this on the morning of the extension.
  11. I have a one year extension due to retirement on my visa and a re-entry permit, can't they let me re-enter via the Thai side automatic door for expediency?
  12. Do you have any example for more than 1% interest in bank account in Thailand? CITI give 0.85% on 20 million Thai Baht... You can look on the website... Would you trust any other Thai bank for this amount?
  13. I had serious eye surgeries since last week, (the IOL fell in the vitreous and has been urgently replaced by another IOL), my passport will expire on 3 August 2017 and renewal of visa due to retirement for one year extension is on 03 July 2017. Today I went to my embassy to have a new passport issued but the embassy says that it should take 2 weeks, sometimes more, for the new passport to come to Thailand. There is a real possibility that the new passport arrives too late for the extension trip to Chang Wattana before 03 July. In the embassy opinion, Chang Wattana will not renew a one year retirement visa extension on 3 July if my passport is only valid for one more month only. Now If I ask my surgeon for an attestation letter that I could not leave Thailand during the surgery follow up before my visa extension as I am still on recovery and writing this letter via the magnifier included in Windows then what the immigration officer will do if I am late in renewing the visa extension due to retirement by a few days? My embassy has now sent the passport to my country and I only have a receipt to show for it, no passport in my possession, My next doctor appointment is exactly on 3 July.. Any suggestion?
  14. I am 66, have you tried to get the required insurance in Thailand for above 65 and at what price? In addition of all this, you need to apply for a criminal record check... Not worth it!
  15. coffee machine in Bkk?

    I would like some suggestions about the best coffee makers with grinder on top at affordable price and where in bangkok? I thought about Philips Seaco for example.
  16. Thank you all for your good advises. The old passport was already cancelled yesterday and a new passport is issued. I only hope it arrives before 3 July. Case closed.
  17. Have you ever had 4 eye surgeries one after the other in 6 months? In those cases, passport renewal is last on your mind, you simply want to get on with a good vision. By the way my next passport is valid for 10 years instead of 5 years. In any case a doctor certificate will settle any problem but those doctors are so busy I wanted to let them doing what they are good for, that is to save eyes.
  18. Thank you Brittim, I will call my embassy today on office opening, cancel the procedure, ask for my passport back until I can extend my visa to give me more time and make this a safe legal procedure. Then after this I will renew the procedure for a new passport. I understand your point and their procedure is questionable.
  19. The embassy today has kept my old passport and also my TM card. I understood what you are saying but this only works if I have a passport in hand, old or new.
  20. I am scared that my new passport arrives after expiration of the actual visa. Does the immigration officer will process an extention all the same? I also intend to ask my doctor for a medical letter attesting recovery from an operation
  21. Does anyone has found a way to get rid of rats sleeping in a car engine. Rats ar a very intelligent creature and they learn fast about the pink pellets and other tricks. If you found a way please also indicate the cost and where to buy in Bangkok. This month it cost me THB20,000 in damages causes by those rats.
  22. How painful is cataract surgery using only painkiller drops? Any better surgeon?
  23. The owner of my building hates cats as much as anyone alive, a very wealthy Chinese woman
  24. How painful is cataract surgery?

    Finally I had the cataract surgery yesterday, it took less than 7 min and it was completely painless. I only had drops on the eye for 30 min before the surgery and 2 valium. No pain whatsoever and I could talk with the surgeon as long as I stayed immobile. Tomorrow I will know the exact vision results but I think it will be 20/20 as I never had such a good vision before. My only regret was not to have done this 20 years ago... THB65,000 by a surgeon with 5000 operations to her credit. I am now on antibiotics for a few weeks.
