  1. How can they possibly know! Do they ask everyone for their passport each time a tourist makes a purchase? This is all supposition and guesswork. Presumably they ask a handful of tourists how much they spend on their holiday and multiply that by the number of foreigners arriving in the country! Utter hogwash!

  2. The word "row" (pronounced Ow! with an r in front) is a perfectly legitimate word meaning a noisy argument or fight. It can be used as a noun or a verb hence "rowing" is perfectly understandable in this context. However the outcome of this row is totally unacceptable! RIP Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  3. How sad that the United States biggest mass shooting should be degraded to a money grabbing lottery! Where is the respect for the victims? This was indeed a tragedy caused by one evil man, who for whatever reason, committed a heinous act. To try and blame event organisers, hotels and the like, is a complete nonsense. They are in no way responsible for what happened. Why does everything have to be reduced to financial gain. Have some pride and respect for your loved ones. Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  4. Why all this stupid mystery! If he has made his decision, announce it and stop daily speculation! The man has absolutely no idea about the real world or how to run a country! Uncertainties can only cause problems! Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  5. If ticket over the B80 printed on it, don't buy it! Simple :-) Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  6. Sorry to appear ignorant, but what are "commencements" and why do they need rehearsals? Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  7. I suppose the monk performing the "special Thai religious blessing ceremony " is the one in the bird costume! Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  8. Thailand to roll out biometric checks for SIM cards nationwide

    How are they going to register SIM cards bought overseas? I am sure a determined terrorist or international fraudster is not going to be thwarted by such trivia! Sent from my iPad using Thaivisa Connect
  9. This is outrageous!!! If someone is given temporary refugee status by the UNHCR, and documents to prove this, then Thailand should respect this and allow these people to live freely, whilst further investigations take place. Surely, these people have suffered enough persecution in their own countries without being further punished, or even returned to face certain death in their home countries! At the moment, we can speak relatively freely here in Thailand. If we were not, then we are lucky enough to be able to return to our own countries where freedom of speech and religious beliefs are allowed. Refugees don't have this option! Show some compassion.

  10. Six high schools teach job skills

    "Students would receive two degrees - high school and vocational diplomas" In most countries, these qualifications are not degrees! Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. Fantastic story. Surely the prison could have made an exception, but nevertheless the kindness office the security guard is to be applauded. Those 2 boys did well to cycle 50 kms in under 5 hours, but they will never forget their adventure and the kindness shown to them. I hope that their father realises how lucky he is to have such loving sons and turns his life around by not breaking the law again.

  12. Director of prestigious Bangkok school faces disciplinary investigation

    So a fact finding committee produced a report, recommending the setting up of another committee to investigate corruption! Why? Surely the police should be the ones to investigate as this is clearly a criminal matter! Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  13. Foreign labourers must register at borders, says PM

    Clearly, the concept of free movement of labour within ASEAN community is a long way off! Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  14. Another thing that annoys me is when people leave out part of a sentence as I have done in line 3 above which should read "at the end of an article on this hallowed site" lol Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  15. An excellent article Rooster, but one thing you could add to your amazing, amusing, or annoying list is "The Nation" logo! It irks me every time it appears at the end of an this hallowed site. "The Nation Thailland's Independent Newspaper" !!! Now call me old-fashioned, but I do like things spelled correctly, especially when it is the name of a country even if the apostrophe is correctly used! But maybe I have missed something and a double "I" in Thailand is the Welsh spelling :-) In the interests of economy, I will stick to one "l" :-) Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
