  1. I'm going back to extend my 30 day extension for an additional 60 days. I was only on a tourist visa when I did the initial extension. And the extension was grant based on the fact that I have children here. Will I be expected to show 400k in the bank? If so, would a bank statement from the USA help? I don't have the 400k at the moment but my bank records from the US show 5k plus a month and I withdraw most of that money here.
  2. I was in MBK a month ago and there were 2 shops openly selling them. And walking down sukhumvit I've noticed several vendors selling decent products.
  3. The fact that they are still readily available on Sukhumvit Road and in shopping malls like MBK I would imagine that they are not strictly enforcing the e-cigarette laws. I imagine that these are random cases where the cops actually know the current laws and are trying to make a little extra money.
  4. I would not risk it in the airport. They are readily available on sukhumvit road. I would not risk "importing" one. But this is just my opinion as they are illegal. I have spoken with some Thai friends that have been arrested with them as well and they said they had paid anywhere from 5,000 to 100,000 Baht fine for using the device.
  5. I was in the Pratum Thani immigration last week and the immigration officer was in the building blowing fat clouds from his e cigarette out of the window. Literally inside the building smoking his e-cigarette blowing the vapor out the window.
  6. I heard he is changing Sukumvit soi 4 into 'The Sangsom Economic Hub'
  7. Personally, I don't see the big deal. The video looked fine. The kid had a harness. the kid didn't get hurt. Every one looked safe. The 2 year old cried? Yeah, 2 year olds cry. My 2 year old will scream bloody murder if I get her the wrong flavor ice cream.
  8. Overall a very painless process. There were only three other falangs in line. Documents provided: Rental agreement Copies of passport and Visa pages Copy of the house registration were my son is registered (not the same as our actual residence) Copy of divorce papers Copy of paper saying I have sole custody of my children Copy of birth certificate They first made me register my address. Documents required: Rental agreement Signed copy of home owners ID Copy of my passport and Visa pages To be honest they hardly even looked at the documents. They told me that they could only give me 30 days but I can come back and extend it for an additional 60 days at the end of the month. I also witnessed a man walk in to inquire about the ten year retirement visa and they told him it was not yet available. O yeah and I saw the immigration officer vaping IN THE BUILDING!!!! with the window open.
  9. I'll be there first thing tomorrow morning. Thanks a lot for the information
  10. Do I need financial proof for the 60 day extension?
  11. So I have recently been told that I can get a 60 day visa without leaving the country based on the fact that I am a single father of 2 children with Thai citizenship. My friend did this at chaeng wattana immigration. My children are on the house registration here in Pratum Thani. Can I do this at the chaeng wattana immigration or do I have to go to Pratum Thani immigration? Or is it even possible? Any advice is appreciated.
  12. I knew all you gay ThaiVisa characters were up to no good...
  13. Quality suits at a decent price

    First off, I looking for "good quality" suit at a "decent price". I am aware that the better the quality the higher the price. Second, I am looking for recommendations on a tailor not your opinion on of what brand of suit to wear. So unless you have a recommendation of a good tailor or the location of your genuine Armani store. I could really care less what kind suits you wear.
  14. Quality suits at a decent price

    I am looking for a recommendation for a good tailor shop in Bangkok. I know Bangkok has a thousands of tailor shops but I would prefer to go to one recommended by someone who has already used their services. I'm looking for good quality suits for a decent price. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
