  1. 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
  2. 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.

  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. I'm glad that they've been told, as clearly, the police rules have changed from " accepting bribes is permissible providing you don't get caught" to "accepting bribes is NOT permissible if you get caught" Otherwise carry on as normal :-) Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  8. I would like to know where you can get 84 baht to the £ please! Current rate is 43.2 so I guess the article means 840 baht for the 2 notes not each! Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  9. An excellent game to watch live. The Lions had several opportunities which they failed to finish, and gave away too many penalties. You just can't do that against the All Blacks! Lions defence was awesome, just need to become more clinical in attack. All set up for a spectacular game next Saturday in Wellington :-) Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  10. Protected snakes seized from show venue in Samut Prakan

    Is it just me, or does anyone else cringe every time an article ends with THE NATION logo! Since when did Thailand contain a double I? Read it again "THE NATION Thailland's Independent Newspaper" !!!!!! Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  11. Knickers nicker's secret lair revealed!

    Many people consider this amusing, but whoever stole this underwear is a sex offender and could potentially progress to sexual assault and rape! Not so funny now is it! All convicted "knicker nickers" in UK are rightly placed on the Sex Offender Register. Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  12. Vocational courses let inmates build a better future

    Excellent news. Having worked with offenders in the UK for 36 years, I am convinced that courses like these can increase confidence and self worth, unable offenders to obtain employment when released and get them out of poverty. Many offenders have had little education and simple literacy and numeracy courses in prison or community pay dividends. Congratulations to all involved in this project.

  13. What they don't say is that "International" visitors will be fleeced of 400baht for the privilege compared with 40baht for Thais! Racism at its worst. I refused to pay and bought some plants from the traders at the entrance to the park and now have some growing in my Khon Kaen garden!

  14. The actual Isan electorate! Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  15. So they won't actually meet the poor "man on the street" earning 300baht for a 12hour day, six days a week, or the impoverished subsistence farmer scratching out a living in his paddy fields! Just attend an exhibition and talk to elite university students and lecturers without sullying his hands by meeting Sent from my Lenovo A3000-H using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
