    UK pensions

    did anyone see the chart as to the difference in the French, German and other EU countries pensions as compared to the UK, i paid extra for years, and when they upped the pension a few years ago ,mine never got increased pro rata, so my friend who had not paid one penny in, now just gets a few quid less than me, so you can say those of us who were frugal, are subsidising those who have not been.
  10. i know what you mean about looking BOTH ways, when i lived at Phra Khanong, every morning a cop would either ride his motorbike against traffic on a dual carriageway or on the pavement to get to the police box, one morning he nearly had me as i left my condo to go to 7/11, i turned turned left (on the pavement) and he nearly mowed me down
  11. know any THAI s with 800,000 in the bank, bet ya dont, as from next year i will know a lot of farangs with that sort of money, then the banks can boast, look how rich we are, and lend out OUR money
  12. re, get out of the sun, we had a student years ago as a guide in CUBA ( money helps with their education) sweltering hot day, we dived into a shoe/trainer shop, when we questioned it, he smiled, AAhh !! air con , ha ha, we had a cofffee outside, he vanished , came back with one ciggy he had bought, so i bought him a packet, friend for life lol
  13. all the times i have visited shopping malls in Bangkok and Pattaya the only places i have seen with customers are the coffee shops,where thais sit for hours over one coffee playing on their phones, never once have a seen a busy retail shop, one big reason i tjhink must be the high rental costs of running one of these units, and the pass it on mentality of thais, Thais love the old night markets, low rents cheap clothes, to buy,
