    I think they're all a bit hit and miss and never up to the advertised standard.

    Getting Around Town

    Surely this would depend on your level of experiance as a pillion? I presume if your a 10th dan pillion you would have knowledge to choose a pilot who does not crash and therefore shorts & T-shirt would be perfectly safe. You could always play it safe however and go for a proper bike jacket, boots, quality helmet etc as is the suitable attire for being on a motorcycle be it up front or in control from the rear Well said, but try choosing someone not to crash into you!

    Psychotherapist Needed

    Absolutely agree. The range and type of symptoms displayed need thorough assessment by a psychiatrist first, who may decide on a course of medication to help bring them under control. Now is not the time for psychotherapy. Good luck Totally disagree Don't go anywhere near medication untill you have exhausted everything else. Actaully research these drugs and you'll see the side effects to a personality is often a hel_l of alot worse than the problem. Seriously she has to see her problem first otherwise youll get knowhere, all advicde will fall on deaf ears. If this is a part of her personality that didnt use to be there she is probably aware of it, she might just need therapy, really. Drugs dont fix things they just hide them. OP - Lots of different advice, but you know your girlfriend better than anyone here and whether you go with the medical or psychotherapeutic model, it seems to me that you should make a decision quickly to get her to a Thai specialist who she feels she can trust, before you both crack up. "Seeing her problem first" is easier said than done, people suffering depression, paranoia or as you have concluded borderline personality, are not able to view their life experiences positively or objectively and able to do something about it.....often with psychotherapy alone the condition worsens. Get to a specialist for advice!

    Plastic On Sausage

    Is that a Bangkaew or a Ridgeback? Hey welcome back. Hiding? Yep, been hiding in dark places in Bangkok. PS. The rail link from swampy to Phayatai (15B) is a bargain and then 25B BTS to Nana.

    Where To Find Custom Shoe Insoles In Chiang Mai?

    Chiang Mai isn't the most foot friendly place on earth.

    Tuskers Opening Again

    Perhaps the new place can offer a free transit service to and from your vehicle or other venue. But where would they park the transit vehicle?

    They will accept it from the day before, as the account is frozen for 24 hours.

    Air Asia

    I've just been looking at the Air Asia main page http://www.airasia.com/my/en/latestnews/myentryreq.html I notice that it says 4. Visa on arrival (VOA) will no longer be issued in Malaysia AirAsia & AirAsia X would like to inform our guests that the Malaysian Immigration Department will no longer be issuing Visa on Arrival (VOA), effective 15th August 2010. If you were able to obtain a VOA, you will now need a valid visa before you fly with us. Please comply with this new ruling to avoid being denied access to board. The only countries eligible for 120 hour transit visa are: Countries eligible for Transit Without VisaIndian SubcontinentOther CountriesSri LankaIndiaPakistanBangladesh (Diplomatic & Official Passports only)BhutanChinaMyanmarNepalTaiwanVietnamEligibityEligibility If I'm reading this correctly, anyone travelling from KL - London (or anywhere else) and stays a night in the Tune box KL to connect, now has to get a visa before flying from CNX - KL and before returning from London (or anywhere else) - KL. Is that how others read it? Anyone been to KL lately direct from CNX?

    Huay Tung Tao Lake - Opened At Night?

    It would be quite nice if it opened at night, by lamplight.

    Renewing 'Retirement' Visa

    Extension visas are a piece of cake. Just have the correct paper work and get there early once a year. There's no need for lawyers, they are just bloodsuckers for those who can't do anything for themselves.

    Air Asia

    Well, since you've done it, the question has been answered thank you. Just a quickie. If they needed a visa in the first place, how could they get a VOA anyway? Lots of countries that have VOA programs have been winding them up (Philippines is another example). Basically a lot of the less developed countries have had more than enough time to get their passports up to scratch (integrity and security feature wise). While they were supposed to do this some countries (like Malaysia) used to let certain nationals (from medium to high risk countries but with low quality passports) fly to them without a visa and get a visa on arrival (after they make declarations about intent, health, criminal convicitons and the like). You could still be refused a VOA and sent back from the airport to your departure point again if the VOA was refused. Thanks again for your response

    Who Is The Person Playing The Bugle?

    great video. some good glen miller on youtube too. the bugle boy in chiang mai is at gawilla army camp. the 5am reverie has often been a reminder to get off youtube and get to bed. Those within the sound of the bugle, mosque and temple will certainly be early risers.

    I agree and it affects all those 'specials' that originate in KL too; i.e. Perth, Melbourne, Gold Coast.....anywhere!

    Renewing 'Retirement' Visa

    It's a once a year event - surely for one day out of 365 you could arrange to get to immigration early, and as for 90 day reporting just send it in.
