  1. Hi I am 57, height 5 ft 7 ins, my weight back in October 2017 was 97 kg with a waist size of 38 inch.......January this year I thought enough is enough so I got a bike....I live in the out skirts of Loeng Nok Tha, and have the a nice piece of quite road from the home up to the 212, round trip is 20 KM, I've been doing this now since mid January...... and have covered just under 2,000 km. Have only missed a few days due to rain or we've gone of somewhere. As of today I am 80.9 Kg lost 16.1 kg and a waist of 36 inch, my BMI is still a little over at 27.9, and my ideal weight is about 76 kg........ I still Drink the odd Chang, I was never a heavy drinker, and I am an ex smoker too, no snacks and my morning coffee is now a Black iced one, no sugar form my local Amazon, and have only one small portion of rice every over day. Oh and by the way I had open heart surgery in 2012, for Mitral and Tricusid heart valve repair, Mitral has an Edwards physio annuloplasty ring in it. I take Ramipril, Bisoprolol and Pradaxa (dabigatranu) every day........... Only problem is my shorts don't fit me and my shirts are too big..........
  2. Totally agree, I have done the application on line 3 times no flights have ever been booked, and we have been granted visas 3 times now.......... Hope you get the visa which ever way you decide to do it

    Bike Clothing where to buy

    Coming down to Bangkok this week from the North East, looking for padded cycle shorts and cycle shirts, having problems up here obtaining the sizes need 2XL and may be 3XL can anyone recommend where to find in BKK.....Staying in the Ding Deang area so have access to MRT and Skytrain so any places off these would be better as hate driving (so sitting in traffic) in BKK Thanks

    Well this is the problem, no one know's, if he tries it and it works, great stuff.........but if it goes Tits.........what is Thai Immigration going to do, refuse him entry on grounds of deception.......turn him back to Laos, Laos refuse him entry on the same grounds............

    Correct........its a catch 22, yes he can go to Laos with his ID card no problem, but he cant explain his UK passport when he shows to Thai immigration where he has been........t

    But he cant leave on an English passport as he has no Laos visa in his passport..........he only has his 3 day boarder pass,

    His problem with his parents consent , has not seen his father in year and no idea where he is in the UK, and has had a big bust up with his mother, and they are not speaking, she is in the UK. One good thing, if anything he has a current valid Thai ID card..........Boarder cross into Laos, here in Mukdahan, on the id card and re enter on British Passport, but that would show up on Laos and Thai immigration that he has used two different forms of ID to leave and re enter, and has a possibilty of complicating the problem........
  15. Ok I will keep this to the basic facts, yesterday was speaking to a lad aged 17, he is Thai/British Thai mother brith father, went to live I up from the age a 3...... arrived in BKK on a one way ticket in November 2017, entered on an expired Thai passport, allowed entry told the immigration hour his mother was following in 2weeks, and he would renew his passport, as he wanted to stay a few months, hence not entering on his British passport. So he tries to renew passport , but he can’t do it as under 20years old, requires documents from father and or mother, now here is the problem......he hasn’t seen his father in 10 years and he has had a major breakdown with his mother, hence why he came here. He is currently with he grandparents here in my local town, but now he wants to return to the UK, has a relative here who will pay for his return ticket, but he he can’t leave on his Thai as it’s expired and can’t renew it, he didn’t enter on his British one so he hasn’t technician arrived here......... we have a local immigration office in Amanant Chareon, I can’t advise him what to,do.............I think he’s dig himself a hole........ I have a couple of thoughts, but was wondering what others thought....... He is fully aware he’s done it all wrong, but we all make silly errors of judgement
