  1. The irony is is that in a nation of people who do everything slowly and lethargically they become crazy speed maniacs when driving with zero patience and taking huge risks with no regard to the consequences...it's like a split personality disorder they have.

    Thailand gets serious about plastic bags

    Went to Lotus yesterday where big brown paper bags were offered along with platinum if you wanted it. I took the paper bag which was not easy to secure on the motorbike. By the time I got home..1km away. .the frozen and other "wet goods" has turned the bag into a mushy mess whereupon everything just fell out on the ground. Will take a large cloth bag..or 2 ..next time. Paper didn't work.

    Thailand gets serious about plastic bags

    I brought my cloth bag to 7/11 the other day where they packed my things onto it carefully then dropped it in to large plastic bag! I gave them back the plastic bag much to their amazement!
  5. I read many times that the seasoning period of B400000 for extension based on marriage is 3 months then others confirm 2 months? ? So it's 2 months only? (Have used pension affidavit in the past but think 2020 will have to be the 400K route.)

    Thailand gets serious about plastic bags

    In Hong Kong it's roughly 2 baht for any plastic bag .....the expats pay the 50cHK. ...the locals bring their own cloth bags!
