  1. The government is pulling in all the old student loans to be paid. My gf received a letter 2 months ago and had to go back to her home town for a group meeting of other student loan debtors. A lawyer told them what had to be done and payment terms were very good, can do over 9 years without any interest. About 200 people in her small town, but many people at her job in Bkk had to do the same. She owed about THB 10k and thought she had paid it off as hadn't received any correspondence for 10 years about it. The loans should be paid back but my intitial reaction was the government must be getting desperate for money.
  2. should've made him do exercise by confiscating the bike and making the kid walk home.
  3. at least now, i have the option to electrify my E-Type! http://www.msn.com/en-au/motoring/news/jaguar-e-type-zero-electric-car-revealed/ar-AArrkq1
  4. Prawit believes Yingluck had help to flee

    give the man an honorary Degree in Rocket Science!
  5. would be good that they are smart enough to combine car and bike licences together so don't have to carry 2 seperate licences around.
  6. basically they are saying the Shinawatras can plan things better than them!
  7. Yamaha Aerox 155cc Launch

    did they make sure it had water and oil in it? Maybe worth checking yourself.
  8. Thailand Best Country to Start a Business in the World!

    Meaning most easiest country to start a business. if only they had a ranking for most failed businesses, would Thailand win that too.
  9. Rustoleum (or other) Engine Paint

    the distributor is in Samut Prakan, i have bought directly off them but you'd need to speak Thai or have someone help you http://dynopaints.com/?lang=en BTW they sell a 2000F exhaust paint that is the only one i have found in Thailand
  10. Over 68,000 people respond to PM’s questions

    about 1% response based on population. Just saying, don't shoot the messenger!
  11. they way i read it, the 3 Mil is only there for one year? Definitely want a guarantee on the 3 Mil, i think at the mo government only guarantee 1 Mil if the bank goes bust. And why say 10 years when you mean 5 years! The other big problem is the health insurance, that will cost at least 50k a year. It is a good idea to have the requirement but only in-patient necessary. Thai health insurance is pathetic in its coverage anyway.
  12. So not upgraded at all; just a pat on the back with a try a lot harder. From the article - " In order to get the ranking upgrade, however, the country would not only need to commit to the ratification and adoption of the ILO’s convention concerning work in the fishing industry, but also maintain sustainable fisheries as well as plans and measures to combat IUU fishing"

    having ABS brakes is a good idea! It sounds like your accident was pure bad luck but you were smart enough to wear the right gear. i've had a couple of accidents and i don't think i could've changed the result of them. I've had dozens of near misses, a few that if i had been 1/10th of a second further down the road would've been serious (sudden U-turns in front of me). I also started to learn on a CBR150, then went back to scooters for a several years. Even though the randomness of driver/rider behaviour in Thailand is scary, i still enjoy getting on the Ninja 300 and going for a ride.
  14. British voters wake up and ask - Who are the DUP?

    no doubt a lot of UK voters feel like they have been DUPped
  15. idiot, he wasn't even smart enough to go for the 'brakes failed' story.
