  1. This was an ill conceived plan, but I do think that the govt. will meet its obligation to the first time buyers. They may end up changing the payment schedule ( 20 K over 5 years, for example), but the funds will eventually be paid.
  2. You can't avoid filing the FBAR if you have more than 10,000 total in overseas accounts. And why, in god's name, would you put all of your cash into banks in Thailand? I think there should have been a course during your MBA entitled: "Eggs and Baskets: Don't put them all in one".

    Girl Is Sex Slave To Older Man, How To Help?

    Does the OP have a female Thai friend who might be sympathetic to this alleged situation? This Thai female should make contact with the woman who claims to be a sex slave, and if the Thai woman believes her claims have merit, she should then contact the proper authorities.
  4. So form TD F 90-22.1 is no longer valid? What's the replacement form if you don't want to file online?

    Sleeper Train Or Bus Chiang Mai Bangkok

    I fly 99% of the time, but if for some reason it came down to train or bus, I'd take the train without a moments hesitation.

    Should Teach A Subject Called "common Sense" In Thailand.

    Isn't it common sense that common sense can't be taught?

    Beds are pretty much the same, and you can't control the AC. The only advantage to a 1st class berth is privacy.

    Clint in "The Gauntlet". I think it was mentioned earlier in the thread.

    It'll never happen, but this might be a good idea for the first year or so.

    For me, the only thing surprising about this is that it got as far as it did. I would've guessed that the tuk-tuk/taxi guys would have crushed it long before this point.

    Bank Of Thailand Alert As Economy Heats Up

    It's nice to finally see a government official express some concern, and not just paint a rosy picture.
  14. IMO, Chiang Mai should be avoided during Songkran. Mainly because it goes on and on for far too many days.
