  1. They basically flat out refused me at two branches. I think they're pretty intent on making the switch. I got myself a Kasikorn Visa and just use that instead now. The Bangkok Bank UnionPay is just a backup now.
  2. I tried a UnionPay debit card in the UK last August and had no luck at any ATM. Bangkok Bank are flat out refusing to give me a Visa card now, so Im off to Kasikorn.
  3. Flat refusals for Visa cards for me from two Bangkok Bank branches. I'm off to Kasikorn, although they expect an original copy of my work permit which i had to get from my office today as a copy wasn't sufficent.
  4. 24 hour sportsbar / bar in BKK?

    Do they serve alcohol 24h?
  5. Healthy body - what medical tests to have?

    But is it any good lol? It's right near where I live.
  6. Healthy body - what medical tests to have?

    Thanks sir, I may well PM you once I decide to go ahead with it.
  7. Healthy body - what medical tests to have?

    It's the hospital named on my Thai social security. As far as I'm aware it's both government and private.
  8. Healthy body - what medical tests to have?

    No, I wouldn't discount it all. I might investigate getting it done there instead. My government hospital is Kluay Nam Thai. Not sure how good that one is. Ninja Edit: What sedation did you get?
  9. Healthy body - what medical tests to have?

    Was that a government hospital price? I was recommended to have one, but the Sukhumvit Hospital estimate was 25-30k.
  10. Plenty of people get long terms over here for lese majeste for tweets and posts.
  11. Deputy transport minister to hold talk to Uber soon

    So it's illegal, but still operates, and there are still recruiting booths at my local Tesco Lotus. 555
  12. What's the hype with "green tea?"

    Oh, those things are dreadful. Just as bad for you as any soft drink.
  13. I was assaulted in Walking street. Help

    You have to be very careful over here. Often more so than surroundings seem to imply. Sadly, pursuing this attack any further probably isn't worth it, but I'm sad, yet again, to see the lack of sympathy that abounds. Being drunk at 4am in Pattaya (or anywhere, in fact) is hardly uncommon, nor worthy of such scorn. It does, however, leave one somewhat vulnerable, alas.
  14. What's the hype with "green tea?"

    Unsweetened green tea is delicious and healthy. Big fan here.
  15. I only drink once a week these days, but those nights tend not to end till 7am. The effects linger for two days after. Need to learn when to call it a night.
