  1. Need new ceiling Fans - Mitsubishi vs. Hatari

    When the HomePro guys come to install the Mitsubishi fans, they'll have the brackets which will clamp on to the grid above the false gypsum ceiling.
  2. Need new ceiling Fans - Mitsubishi vs. Hatari

    I recently bought Mitsubishi ceiling fans for 3500 baht each at Home Pro. Installation is 1350 baht per fan. Much better than Hatari. Don't go for the models with decorative lights and all that jazz - they look good, but don't really generate enough breeze.
  3. Online Dictionaries & Thai Language Resources

    Nothing opens up on this website?
  4. learn thai from a white guy

    Although I have my own place in Bangkok, I travel a lot outside Thailand and am never here long enough at a stretch. What is the best method, in your opinion, to learn Thai, and which is the recommended school/ teacher? I live by the river. Would there be some method where I could take the classes as and when I'm in Thailand?
  5. It is exactly 5-6 mns by the clock from my condo to the Sathorn pier. Boats every 30 mins. And absolutely no mosquitoes. We leave our doors and windows open all the time. Lots of very happy residents, Thai and expat, and judging by their cars and lifestyles, pretty high end. Anyway, to each his own. I'm not interested n this back n forth anymore as your tone is beginning to be uncivil. Thanks n bye.
  6. Exactly. I have a Visa branded debit card, and a Visa credit card. I'm a foreigner, not married to a Thai, only on retirement visa, and in fact BBL pushed me to get these two cards.
  7. And so noisy! Even on the 20th floor you can hear the traffic. Live on the Chaophraya river, very central, all the good condos have their own ferry to the Sathorn pier, and you can jump on the BTS at Saphan Thaksin. Very quiet and breezy.
  8. thai id card for foreigners

    I bought the condo on resale from the original American owner, not the actual developer. Electricity meter transfer was a snap. Still cannot find any blue book. I only have the big A3 sized oficial govt paper which I believe is the title deed. Abroad right now but will get after condo management and Khlong San khet office to pursue this on return.
  9. That whole area on the lower odd soi numbers is beginning to look like a mini Arab world. I like my kebab now and then but the whole area is full of women in burqas now, and I wonder where I am sometimes.
  10. And I also have a separate ATM debit card. I do not have a work permit, simply on retirement visa.
  11. They do issue credit cards, but they ask you to make a fixed deposit, against which they make a lien. I deposited 50,000 baht in a fixed deposit and so my credit card has a spend limit of 50,000 baht. Each month the actual bill is deducted in full from my linked savings account.
  12. thai id card for foreigners

    Good morning Tanoshi. Yes, we are in Khlong San. I'll go to this district office. No, I didn't get any Blue Book when I purchased the condo. I do have the property deeds, properly registered in my name. Many thanks for your help!
  13. thai id card for foreigners

    Right. Next question from the dummy that I am :) is how do I find my particular Khet? I'm on Charoen Nakhorn Road in Bangkok right on the river.
  14. thai id card for foreigners

    Good morning Ubon Joe. No, I don't have a blue house book. I have the big registration paper from the Land Registration office after it was transferred to my name. Maybe the Juristic Person office in my condo knows how I can get the blue book. Having obtained that, next how do I know which Khet office I need to go to get the yellow house card? Reading the replies on this thread, something called a TB book, right?
