  1. 66 foreigners arrested in nationwide crackdown

    What else can you be in patpong!! I miss goldfingers! Things were much easier back then and allot cheaper.
  2. YouTube star slams rip-off taxi driver

    allot of people that can say sawdee krup state they can speak thai.
  3. 66 foreigners arrested in nationwide crackdown

    Where do you get this idea?? We export from Thailand and all our invoices are in USD. I have several Thai friends that own companies exporting everything is in USD. When we get a wire transfer we can have it put in our USD account or our Thai baht account (which the bank dose the exchange at the current rate).
  4. 66 foreigners arrested in nationwide crackdown

    if you dont mind me asking, what did you do to end up there in 97'?
  5. There kids, kids due stupid things, I know I did, I used to ride my bike all day never had a helmet. Stand on my seat while riding my bike, no hands etc. As for the adults, some have very little education!
  6. You shouldn't have had to pay! Was this in BKK? BKK the 1st day is waived, it's been this way for as long as I've been in Thailand which is 25+ years. I have overstayed a few times anywhere from 1-4 days due to delays, flights changes etc. Never had to pay for the first day. If more than 1 day then you have to pay for all days.
  7. If you continue this I dont see any problems. The issue is not someone using a VE, but people trying to live full time in Thailand on a mixture of VE and visas. 20 years ago no big deal, but now days immigration is being very aggressive!
  8. I had a taxi do this to me once, I told him ok I'll pay. I didnt tell him the hotel I was going to, just told him to go to Silom. When I got to the soi of my hotel. I showed him US dollars told him I needed change, I went down the soi and never went back!!
  9. Have Thais got it right, and we've got it wrong?

    When it happened it was all over the news that night in Thailand, in the newspaper that next day. Several Thais died that worked in the towers. Several years later the papers did an article about the two dies that died in the 9/11 attacks.
  10. I know several young Thai guys that do that. Rich old women pay for their services all the time!
  11. Thailand worries over oil price spike

    didn't really effect traffic last time. What was a pain is Taskin govt had gas stations close at 11 or 12 at night some crazy time like that, made any last minute trips difficult.
  12. I agree he loves his country but the way he is going about thing is all wrong! I'm not sure how much of a man of the people he is when he has police going out and executing drug users and dealers with very little to no proof the person was a user or a seller.
  13. I agree!! Op, if you lived here before you should know already that most Thai cops wont do anything unless they can make some money. Unless your landlady has some very good friends high, high up nothing will happen as this is a civil issue, nothing to do with the police. You broke a contract not a law!!!
  14. Really?? The US just cut their tax rate. we will have to wait to see what happens, at this time it's looking positive. I dont see Singapore every doing a tax increase.
