  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Do they serve alcohol 24h?
  4. But is it any good lol? It's right near where I live.
  5. Thanks sir, I may well PM you once I decide to go ahead with it.
  6. It's the hospital named on my Thai social security. As far as I'm aware it's both government and private.
  7. 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?
  8. Was that a government hospital price? I was recommended to have one, but the Sukhumvit Hospital estimate was 25-30k.
  9. Plenty of people get long terms over here for lese majeste for tweets and posts.
  10. So it's illegal, but still operates, and there are still recruiting booths at my local Tesco Lotus. 555
  11. Oh, those things are dreadful. Just as bad for you as any soft drink.
  12. 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.
  13. Unsweetened green tea is delicious and healthy. Big fan here.
  14. 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.
  15. That Wazza guy is hilarious, my first watch. I keep up with "20 seconds in Thailand" "Kev in Thailand" and "Jason Fonger" mostly. All decent chaps in their own way.
