  1. Online 90 day reporting available from April 1st

    Chiangmai Office - Submitted on-line application this morning at 8:18 AM. E-mail from immigration confirming authorised at 10:41 AM. Printed of confirmation 11:00 AM. Glad it's back, no trip necessary to Promenada - hooray!
  2. Live webcam from Chiangmai

    My eyes must be getting bad. Just spotted the website address in the blue banner. Great webcam, thanks.

    What is the direct website address.
  4. Dentist Search

    I have also used Elite Smile for the past 4 years and can not recommend them highly enough. Always very professional and explain in full detail cost and procedures ahead of treatment.
  5. I also have Pulse and am very pleased with the service. On the rare occasions I wish to watch programmes I may have missed over the last few days I have downloaded the UK free services, BBC I Player, All4 and MY5 which work perfectly when viewed behind VPN. For some reason the ITV service does not work. Incidentally both BBC 1 & 2 programmes on Pulse are stored for 48 hours.
  6. Online Shopping

    When using Lazada I copy and paste description of product in Google translate which gets around the problem for me.
  7. Directors Chair in Chiangmai?

    Many thanks but I already have purchased.
  8. Directors Chair in Chiangmai?

    Hi Pgrahmm Since last post I have managed to find a factory in Thailand who directly supply Pier1.com in America. If you go on Pier1's website and enter Directors Chairs in the search engine you will see the full range with current prices. If you order direct from the factory here the prices, including free delivery to Chaingmai, are shown below. Note the prices include the canvas covers which appear to be sold as an extra on the Pier1 site. Directors Chair 1250 Baht Directors Barstool 1550 Baht There is no minimum order quantity. I received two chairs yesterday which in my opinion are of good quality. If you are interested please private message me and I will provide full contact details. The person I spoke to speaks very good English.
  9. Medical cover in Thailand - Age 86

    It is disappointing that you have assumed "someone's motives need to be looked at " and, furthermore that they are being "misguided and selfish" when you have no knowledge of the people concerned. For your information it is the father that wishes to join his son and wife in Thailand. As a loving son he is making an appropriate enquiry to see if he can facilitate his fathers wishes.
  10. Directors Chair in Chiangmai?

    Purchased a few of these chairs a while back from a furniture shop which was trading at Pantip Plaza, ground floor. This outlet has now closed and was wondering if any one knows where they have moved to or of any other retailer that sale this type of chair in Chiangmai.
  11. Medical cover in Thailand - Age 86

    I know what you mean Auntyedna. But for me the comfort of having a card in my wallet confirming I am covered gives me peace of mind. What if you are unconscious and hospital delay treatment whilst they check you are able to pay. From my point of view I hope I will never have to claim and will still consider it money well spent.
  12. Medical cover in Thailand - Age 86

    I must admit I wondered that myself. I'm currently with BUPA Thailand platinum package. Current premium 6200 bahts per month with annual 10% no claims bonus. Age 60.
  13. A friend planning to move permanently to Thailand has asked me to check possible medical cover for his father who may wish to come with him. The father currently lives in the U.K. and therefore has always been covered by the NHS. This will obviously cease to be the case if he moves permanently to Thailand. Does anyone know of any company, possibly a specialist provider, within Thailand that may be able to consider such cover for an 86 year old.

    Just signed up to pulse. Can't believe price of package quoted on SingExpat website. For just free channels they are quoting $98.72USD per quarter. Surely this must be some joke.

    Just tried to sign into ThaiExpat website and see they have changed name to SingExpat, now based in Singapore. Also website states software will now only offer all free view channels in U.K. Site will not let me sign in using existing account details so not sure how they are going to treat there existing customers who have already paid for service in advance. Having said that system appears to be working normally at the moment.
