  1. Best area / zone / neighborhood to live in CM

    +NancyL We already have too many old dudes with health problems here in Chiang Mai living on the edge financially. Why do you think there's the need for Lanna Care Net? They don't want any more customers. Wow that's interesting you calling me an old dude, when you are about 3 years older than I am. I also see that you had a membership at La Meridian Spa, and that you have your shampoo shipped over from the U.S. for your grey/ white hair. How nice for you. I also see that you have done research on the cost of cremation in Thailand. How is "your" health Nancy ? I am glad to see that you and scottyjohn are buddies now, since not long ago you stated that he had " Poor reading comprehension skills " And bunion surgery in your early 30s, well that's just nasty.

    Ok I will try and correct that next time. So you are just the one the one that suggested I go live at the 4 Seasons. So It was another one of your little clan then. I will have to get back to you, I am dealing with a different old beeach at the moment. Oh and btw why not? Everyone else's BS seems to fly pretty well here.

    +NancyL We already have too many old dudes with health problems here in Chiang Mai living on the edge financially. Why do you think there's the need for Lanna Care Net? They don't want any more customers. Who is "we" Nancy ? For a non Thai to make a statement like that, all I can say is congratulations your arrogance knows no bounds. And what do you know of my financial prospects for the future, or my health for that matter ? I merely stated ( In a different post by the way ) What I ' hoped ' to live on for the near future. Would you like to have me deported for trying to live in " Your " Chiang Mai on 1,000 USD a month ? So tell me Nancy is it you or should I say " we " that should decide what the financial requirements should be, in order for one to live in Chiang Mai ? As for the others on here that have gone rabid over the fact that I used the word "Dude" I have not seen ONE criticism of the poster on here that called me that FIRST, while suggesting that I should go live at the Four Seasons, after I simply asked about what you liked or dislike about the area the area you live in. And to all the rest that have responded with kind words and helpful information, I offer a sincere Thank You.

    +Macthehat LOL That was a good one. Thank you. I have found my Coffee Shop in CM. I shall forever be known as the Chiang Mai Dude. Can't wait to get there, and tell all the pretty little Thai girls " How do you do, my name is Dude.

    First of all, let me apologize to those of you that I seem to have so badly offended by my use of the word " DUDE " after someone first referred to me as a dude. Secondly, I should have worded my original question better, however I was not just looking for the best area for me to live. Rather I was hoping to hear from a variety of people of different ages and life styles in order to get a better feel for all the different areas of the city. Thirdly, to those of you that seem to think it's humorous to point out that I have Diabetes, it would seem that the Buddhism thing has not rubbed of on you much, has it ? Lastly your going to have to try a lot harder than that to hurt my feelings.

    Dude, yea I get it dude. That's why I asked, what do you like, or not like, about the area you live in ?

    I'm still hoping to get an intelligent response to my question. You know, things you like or dis like about the area you live in ?
  8. I'm planning a move to Chiang Mai soon, and would like to here from people that have had there boots on the ground there for a while, as to where the best area to live is, and why ?
  9. Hellop I hope to arrive in Chiang Mai around the middle of July, and would like to know if any one can recommend a Hotel or Furnished Apt. I would like to start with 2 months rental, and then see how it goes. Say, no more than 10 Km from the city center. A pool would be great but not mandatory. Between 8500 to 10,000 Baht per month, not including utilities. I'm looking around online, but I'm hoping someone can recommend something based on personal experience. Thanks
  10. Anyone know the cost of these med's in Thailand ?

    Thanks tonray, right now I have so many problems, this is starting to seem pretty minor. I Apprisiate your help though.
  11. Anyone know the cost of these med's in Thailand ?

    Thanks ignis , I don't test my blood so far, just taking the pills as of now, hopefully I will get run over by a Tuk tuk before it gets to that point. cheers
  12. Anyone know the cost of these med's in Thailand ?

    Hi ignus, I'm really thankful for the advice, but please cut me some slack will you ? I' m half way around the world, and don't know any Thais to ask. I realize the price is going to vary and was just asking for the average . And I don' t know what a " tub or a strip is " I was just recently diagnosed with type 2 . Cheers
  13. I am not in Thailand, so I'm wondering if any one knows the cost of the following medications in Thailand ? Proponolol 40mg tablets Lovastatin 20mg tablets metformina 500mg tablets Thank You.
  14. Thanks lopburi3 That helps clear things up a bit. What my mention of the 35k baht SS meant was, that if my fixed income from SS is $1070 or 37,215 Baht at today's exchange rate, then a slight drop in the dollar against the Baht would made my $1070 worth less than the 35,000 Baht required. But now if I understand things correctly, I would just have to increase the amount I have in my bank account to compensate. I did not previously realize that that's how it worked. That's why I'm here.
  15. Hi Buick, Thank you, I took a look at that thread. Sometimes it seems like the more research I do the more confused I get. :=( My original plan was to just have the 800,000 Baht in the bank. One other thing I'm not sure about is whether or not you have to show that you still have that amount in the bank, each year when you go to renew the retirement visa. If that's true, I guess they want to be sure that all of that money is in their bank when you die. Now I am considering the combined method, however the amount that I am scheduled to receive from Social Security does not exceed the 35,000 Baht by very much, so a change in the exchange rate might be a problem.
