  1. What is your value quotient here in Thailand?

    My value quotient in LOS is zip, nada and zilch. Been like that for nan laew too. On the other hand, if you want me to rank my self esteem...?
  2. What is your value quotient here in Thailand?

    I've worked off and on in Vietnam for the best part of 8 years. And you think the Thai's don't like us?
  3. What is your value quotient here in Thailand?

    VAT payment in any country doesn't get you equal rights in those countries. Glad you changed your 'most' visitors to just 'many' visitors. Hopefully, it will eventually be just 'some' visitors. Yours?
  4. Where? In the east midlands?
  5. What is your value quotient here in Thailand?

    Yes we do. But what percentage pay taxes here? And I don't mean VAT on purchases either. Most visitors of any sort to your country do not collect welfare. Guaranteed. Citation (badly) needed. ...while you're looking that up, anyone else up for a balloon chase?
  6. Round Two at Jomtien Immigration

    Glad the OP got exactly the service he's entitled to. Also glad he didn't come across any of those ranting and raving TM30 types on his two easy-peasy, in-out, happy-clappy, Jomtien Immigration moments.
  7. Beware of Shoppee

    Urassaya Sperbund also known as Yaya ...how do you say total babe in Norwegian?
  8. Extention of Stay (Retirement) in Jomtien

    That goes without saying. I see that idioms aren't your strong point. "The full expression is. What you lose on the swings, you make up for on the roundabouts. Its origin is from the fairground. For whatever reason, the fairground owner may be losing money on the swings, but gaining it on the roundabouts. So the situation is balanced." In your case, your warm, fuzzy immigration experience was somewhat diminished by "the dumpy overweight, black hornrimmed spec wearing ugly woman "thing"' experience at the insurance office.

  10. Extention of Stay (Retirement) in Jomtien

    Did you change the registered Thai home address between your previous, easy-peasy extension filing and the one that you were fined on?
  11. One dead, one injured in wicked pickup accident

    Copied a German design apparently. Lethal.
  12. One dead, one injured in wicked pickup accident

    Move this to the Motor forum under "How to remove a Hilux engine in less than a second." The video from cctv should be good.
  13. How about DUI or DWI. Much more dangerous than speeding. The Norwegians have a nice, tiered fine system for those hi-so's that go too fast. That's about $30k for being 3 x the legal blood alcohol limit. For someone in the same leagues as the Red Bull shit, that's water of a ducks daddy's back.
  14. It worked for Yingluck didn't it?

    Such reports are not really helpful without some more details relating to why you 'suddenly' got banged up for a TM30 violation. Things like any change in registered abode between extension renewals and/or evidence in passport or immigration databases of otherwise unreported departure and re-entry to Thailand? Previous recipients of this dubious honor have been more vocal about the extra cost and maligning the already much maligned Immigration officers rather than telling us exactly why they got 'caught'... which isn't the same as why they think they got caught. Pretty sure they are told exactly why at the time their wallets are lightened, no?
