  1. How long can funeral be put off?

    Thanks AliasJohn. So is the keeping of the body in the refrigerated coffin part of the funeral or is the body kept there until the funeral starts?
  2. When someone dies, how long can the funeral be delayed? This might be a stupid question but where is the body kept until the commencement of the funeral...and how much (approximately) does each day of "storage(?)" cost?
  3. US Ireland Namibia Egypt Brazil China Yeah i know...huge list. Really appreciate it!
  4. Wow thanks for that list. Got a Chinese in the group. Is that list up to date though? It says it's from 2013. I hear they don't update their website much and that you cant depend on the info there.
  5. I hear they have enforced the proof of funds requirement for SETV. Savannakhet and KL being some of the places that do. Any info on Vientiane? Also, would just bank balance suffice for does it have to be a statement for a certain period?
  6. So if they say they can. Will it mean they really can... and would?
  7. Thanks for the input guys. Yeah LOTS of visas on my passport. That's why i'm a bit worried, and looking for a sure fire why of getting this done. Heard a lot of fail stories. The using an agent in Phnom sounds interesting to me. Do they guarantee it? How is that vs. doing it myself in Malaysia vs Laos?
  8. Which embassy is easier to get a Thai tourist visa from? I hear the Thai embassy in Phnom Penh is notorious for denying visas, BUT really easy if you let the doorman or a travel agency handle it - any truth in that? Laos i hear is "easier", but haven't heard of any doorman or agency expediting things in exchange for a little compensation for their troubles. Malaysia i haven't heard anything about. Honestly, i'm leaning towards Phnom Penh and use someones service, but i'm not sure how reliable it is. Anyone with experience? So basically, with compensation in hand, looking for a guaranteed success doing this. Any pointers?
  9. I know i am not seeing things.... http://www.renthub.in.th/en/chayapat-mansion http://www.renthub.in.th/en/b-32-apartment These are just random examples. Thousands of them if you check out the site http://www.renthub.in.th Most of them are the Ritz compared to my shoe box which i - literally - pay 13 times more for. Some of them are at 2k baht too! There is also this site which has hundreds of apts under 5000 http://www.thaiapartment.com/search-price1 What am i missing?
  10. Thanks Buddy, for the low-down. Appreciably it! OK, where to start. I looked up Siam Privi. Booking.com got them listed at about 37,290 baht a month. 37290 baht??? Really?! Or will they offer a discount if i call? But how much of a discount will they offer...%90?? Sea of Love? 3,900-5,300 for a 1bd depending on floor. Perfect!... BUT! 4 months contract (according to their website). I am only staying for 3 months (possibly more) and even if they had 3 months contracts, i still wouldnt want to commit for that long. Shoot for 12,000? Lets say 2000 (at 6 baht/unit) for electricity and 300 for water. Internet at 350 a month. 4000+2000+300+350=6600. What am i missing? I would honestly be in Chiang Mai if i didnt have to be in BKK.
  11. Mind sharing where exactly your 4,900 thb friend is staying? I would like to check it out.
