    Accident Waiting To Happen In Nongprue

    I was living on the dark side when the city finally decided to put lights in at the rail crossings. Great idea, wonderful way to save lives...last about a week. Last time I was down that way I drove the road to see how it was...it wan't nice. The lights work but only when you get a professional traffic engineer to time them.

    True Fiber 100/30 now 100/100?

    I live in BKK and have consistently been receiving 125+ Download and 37+ Upload. When I switched to servers in SG and HK I got a negligible difference. Looks like they, as others noted, put you on the higher priced program.
  3. If the car is registered in Buriram, plan on a road trip. I bought a truck that was registered in Khon Kaen and had to make 3 trips to KK and back.
  4. I see both sides of this equally well. I am one who does require the assist and am damn glad it's available. I have no qualms giving over a 100 baht (or more as case determines) for the poor Thai that has to push me through the airport. The reason you will see an "entourage" is the airline desire to board all in the party together. I can get along fine for short distances but due to a heart condition cannot go the long trek through Swampy and other IAP like HKG, NRT or ICN. Yes, I have seen it abused too but I'd like to think the number abusing the option is small.
  5. Color of his skin has nothing to do with it. He was an incompetent POTUS. Class? He has no class either but you please carry on without me as I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed man.
  6. He's done more to deserve it than his irrelevant predecessor.
  7. There is no BEST bank in this country. They are all about the same, equally inefficient. Your best luck in opening an account without a long term visa will be either Bangkok Bank or Kasikorn in my opinion.
  8. When the hell are people going to wake up and order retrofit to all these hazardous balconies and make them so no one can fall...accidentally or not.

    Prepaid SIM card validity

    I kept mine valid by having someone add 100 Baht every few months to the already decent balance I kept on it. Then I converted to post-pay account 12 years ago. I am not sure if still accurate but DTAC was killing off all numbers that had no activity call in or out for 46 days...regardless of balance.

    Am I a Thai citizen ...?

    You will need a copy of your mother's Birth Certificate, Copy of parents Marriage documents, copy of her Thai ID, Thai passport and any other relevant documents you can provide. Good Luck!

    Fault car accident....bill way too high?

    Get the first class insurance and let the damn insurance companies battle it out. It is cheaper than you think. Mine just jumped to 17K per year (2012 Pajero Sport) after a wall jumped in front of my (not too experienced driver) wife. BTW, you would not be paying for a rental with the insurance here either unless specifically written in.
  12. Make sure you have a re-entry permit and check with the Thai Embassy in DC or one of the Consulates (not the honorary ones) about renewal in case you cannot return within the year.
  13. I know of no better fate for kiddie diddlers than to be locked up in Gen Pop and the other inmates made aware of his transgressions. If I were left alone with him, I cut off his johnson and feed it to him....BY FORCE.

    To tip or not to tip?

    Generally, I will NOT tip more than 20 baht if there is a service charge. If there is no service charge I will have my wife tell me what to leave. Usually 10% is left.
  15. Sadly, these pinheads will not get the message until one their loved ones is in the back of that bus trying to get through traffic and doesn't make it.
