  1. A friend of mine had an accident which resulted in a very deep cut in his leg,to make a long story short he is now stuck with a very big hospital bill which he can't pay and he doesn't have insurance.What does a hospital do when you can't pay the bill completely?

    forbidden zones

    I like to go troling(fishing troling)around the islands off phuket in a canoe,but I have been told by Thai people that certain areas are now off limits,another person then told me that these areas are only off limits at a certain time of the year,the area I'm interested in most is Koh Maiton,does anyone know about the new fishing laws?
  3. I've lived in 9 different countries altogether for a period of 49 years and one thing I quickly learned is that if you weren't born in a country and didn't grow up there then you will never ever be like the locals.And especially not like the Thais,or Asians in general,they are just so very different from Western people.

    Online Teaching

    And anyway this whole discussion is pointless because in Thailand a foreigner can get arrested for doing some work on for example his own boat or house,just about anything.

    Online Teaching

    looks to me like "mr loaded " is a bit biased about this subject,perhaps a school owner?,apparently many English teachers now prefer to work online to working at some of these schools here.
  6. A friend of mine had an accident in which he got a very deep cut in his leg and he had to be operated on, he has just received the hospital bill and it's over 500,000 baht,he has no insurance and can only partly pay.What would the hospital do in a case like this? And yes we already know that he should have had insurance,only helpful answers would be much appreciated.

    There is no right or wrong

    Is it really necessary to mention that you would be receiving a high salary in the corporate world? Why are you writing this whole story?,Do you really think anybody cares about you leaving ?,funny these self important people with high salaries in the corporate world,I'm sure you fit right in.

    NCPO claims flood-management win

    It's not over yet,look like there is one more storm coming around the end of this week.
  9. I'm looking at health insurance options,I am married to a Thai and in this way I'm getting a 1 year extension of stay(that's what they call it I think),I also have a son who was born in Thailand.Does anyone know if it would be possible to get social security without having a work permit or a Thai company.And if not what would be the next best kind of insurance to get which is not too expensive but is reliable?,I have insurance at the moment but I have heard too many bad things about the company I am with.Thank you.
  10. If you check the weather maps,for example passageweather.com it shows that next week Thailand could get hit by 3 different typhoons.This is not a joke,check the weather forecast for yourself.
  11. I'm interested in teaching English online,my students would all be in China and I would be in Thailand,I read somewhere that you don't need a work permit for this as you are making all your money abroad,is this correct?
  12. We are trying to find a visa solution which would enable my friend's son to stay in Phuket and go to school here.My friend has a work permit but he has the type of work permit for which he has to leave the country every 3 months(not the type which enables him to stay in the country without having to leave for 1 year).He has been told that you can't use his type of work permit to get a visa for his son,his son is 11 years old.My friend's wife also has the same every 3 month leave the country type of work permit. The school his son would like to go to is a tutor school and can't get him a visa.Your advice would be much appreciated.
