    If you fancy a craft beer or willing to try any other worldwide beer, you can try Chase's bar on the bypass road towards sukhumvit, a little bit after the BeeHive on the same side. He must have at least 150 different beers, and you can also get snacks like a smoked duck breast of just french fries with it. Everything is imported so prices are bit high, but really nice choice. Nice place

    Hydrochloric Acid/ Sodium Hypochloride

    In my company we would use only « Hypo » (ไอโป) but some of my thai colleagues say that they often use « nam chlorine » as well. Sorry that this maybe confusing, (like many other thai transcriptions...)

    The thai name for HCl is indeed grot gruea but you can also use "grot hydrochloric". (กรดไอโดรคลอริก) HCl is produced mainly from Chlorine itself or chlorine derivatives, which comes from salt electrolysis. This is why it is called 'grot gruea'

    I have tried the Ciao Bella "Pizzaria" (It is written as such..) on Phla road this week. I can recommend their Lasagna and Tiramisu which are really excellent for a very decent price. The cold cut platter is also great.

    Sell Car with finance ongoing

    Thanks for the replies - I am checking with my company to replace and get an allowance. I bought an Honda CRV 2.4 4WD - Excellent car.
  10. Dear Arkady, So many thanks for this very complete answer. It is really really helpful for me Thanks
  11. Dear both ubonjoe and VIBE, Thank you for your answers. What i meant by non-b visa is of course extension of stay. When I arrrived in 2009, I got a non-B visa which was then extended by immigration 4 times for 2 years each time. Sorry for my bad explanation. So you must be married to a Thai to apply for citizenship?
  12. Hi everyone, Sorry that this question might have been asked so many times, but I'd like to know what's your opinion on the easiest solution for me : either to apply for PR or Thai citizenship. I have been working here for 8 years , i have had only non-B visas up to know linked with my WP. I am employed by a local company. My partner is thai (we are not married) and we have 2 kids. I speak thai almost fluently We live in Rayong province so the local immigration or police would not be of so much help, would probably need to go to Bangkok. So is it faster for me to go and apply for Thai citizenship directly even though we are not married (will getting married help a lot?) Thanks for your advice and experience sharing
  13. Hello Everyone, I just purchased last month a new HONDA car with a financing (from KasikornBank Leasing) over 4 years, and 2 weeks later time my company just informed me that I will be entitled to get a compnay car starting from next year... Bad timing ... so I have to sell that new car that I just bought (and probably loose a few hundred thousands)... Anyhow, my question is: how does it work in regards to that financing if I want to sell the car? Can that financing contract be transfered? Anyone with experience could share what's the best to do to avoid loosing too much money? The car and credit financing contract are both in my name Thanks !
  14. Many thanks to both of you for your help. I will go to the Amphur with my partner and the kids to do this then.
  15. Hello everyone, I am working here for 8 years now, and my thai girlfriend and I (we are not married) have 2 kids. Regarding my tax declaration last year, since we are not married with my partner, the revenue department asked me to provide a document a certificate of children issued by the District Office, to be able to deduct 30,000 THB per kid in my total personnal income tax computation. They said that the thai birth certificate is not enough as a proof. Does anyone know what that certificate of children is? I mean I can go to my local district office but since we are not registered on any tabien baan (blue book) here, I dont see what they can do for us. Thanks in advance for those who have some experience in this regard.
