  1. "While Hall looks like an ordinary guy". Are you serious? He looks like a psychopath. Lock him up somewhere and throw away the key.
  2. Suspected German pedophiles arrested in Pattaya

    And this story and many other similar ones are why you couch detectives out there should not jump to conclusions. It is quite outrageous that these 'alleged' paedophiles have been named and shamed at this stage. By all means do so when there is some actual evidence and they are convicted and if this occurs, I hope they suffer, mentally, physically and in whatever way possible, for being the scum they are. However, before that happens, do not judge them. It could be you one day, innocent as a new born lamb, but deemed guilty by your ignorant, judgemental and ill-informed peers.
  3. I've certainly never been fingerprinted entering or leaving Thailand and I certainly don't recall being fingerprinted entering or leaving Cambodia and I have been there many times. Maybe it's a new thing, I haven't been there for a year or so?
  4. I don't know about UK passports, but he certainly spoke with an Aussie accent. And scum they surely are for doing that.
  5. I was home last year and I took my Thai girlfriend with me. We did visit a few supermarkets and shopping malls and to say she was gobsmacked and appalled at the state of the majority of women we saw in them would be an understatement. Obviously we didn't visit the same supermarkets as you do.
  6. gf son is pregnant

    This is an interesting article. Don't know if it's legally accurate, but given the subject matter, worth a read. https://www.stickmanbangkok.com/weekly-column/2006/05/the-age-of-consent-in-thailand/
  7. Good luck. I hope everything goes to plan for you.
  8. Far be it for me to contradict anything that ubonjoe writes on this subject, he is by far the most knowledgeable person I know in these matters. However, if it was me I would write off the whole of the week commencing 23rd October, be that because the BKK immigration offices will be closed on the dates suggested, but as TIT, anything is subject to change at a moments notice, or because it will be chaos in BKK.
  9. If I remember correctly, I did a border run just before he expiry of my multiple entry Non-Imm 'O' visa and they gave me a further 90 days, then I had to apply for an extension of stay for the purposes of retirement, which I have continued to do for subsequent years. My annual extension of stay refers back to my original Non Imm 'O' visa.
  10. OK, OK, let's be pedantic. It is an extension of your permission to stay, for the purposes of retirement, based on the fact that you originally had a Non-Imm O or Non-Imm O-A visa . If you didn't have the visa in the first place you wouldn't have been able to extend your stay. Yes or no?
  11. It's a technicality. Whilst everyone calls it a 'retirement visa' it is actually and extension of your visa for the purposes of retirement. Look it up on the Internet.
  12. No one knows, but it would be best to forget the week starting 23rd October. Plan on the following week. And yes, it is an extension of your visa for the purposes of retirement, NOT a retirement visa. When will people realise this?
  13. Whatever she decides to do, she needs to do it quickly and the only way out of this, that I can see, is a rich farang. Best place to meet one of them is working in a girlie bar and in the meantime she will be earning money. Sad but true I am afraid and whilst my comment seems brutal, it is brutally true. I am in sympathy with her and hope she can resolve the situation. Certainly, reporting the matter to the Police, or other authorities, will get her nowhere other than a death sentence. Make sure they use a condom and charge as much as you can, would be my recommendation. Sadly......
  14. No alcohol sales for 9 days in Hua Hin??????

    Yes I agree, they were certainly wrong on that one. However, normally they are pretty good and it's fair to say that a lot of other information on the web was also incorrect regarding Wan Awk Phansa. http://www.boomboomme.com/resources/holidays/thailand/
  15. No alcohol sales for 9 days in Hua Hin??????

    I know for sure that 13th and 26th will be no alcohol days, this has been confirmed by the police in Hua Hin. Any other days would appear to be pure conjecture at this stage, but I would expect there to be more. 3 - 5 days around the funeral, is being bandied around. When they do decide to tell us, they will probably do so by driving around with a megaphone, like they did yesterday, to warn the bars to shut today.
