  1. Making a deal with the devil & in the future the devil has you by the short hairs.
  2. To say nothing of making a deal with the devil trying to gain manipulative influence (spare parts, overhaul, expertise, joint training) over Thai military in the future. The stated mission: Neighboring countries already have subs. How rediculous. Where is the sense of priorities ?
  3. I bought some N95 at the TESCO super highway / flower market area. Packaged noted used for painting, sanding etc. Also a model just a bit more expensive - R95 - supposedly better yet.
  4. Is Nimmanhaemom Road named after some distant relative?
  5. Good points, thanks for posting Demin. Headaches are recent though, so it's probably time for an eye test and a new pair of glasses, preferably with anti-glare coating. I just don't want to spend a fortune on frames again, that's all. Stubby, Also see if you see any improvement in the headaches after the March bad air (actually possibly mid Fe4b - Mid Apr) is gone.
  6. Hmm, registration requirement also has implications for Burmese illegally working as security guards. Something quite common up north.
  7. KittenKong, blackcab, I thank both of you very much for your very helpful advice.
  8. Thanks for reply. I had not considered this. I respect your experience in these matters, so have to ask if there is not some simple way to negate such a negative possibility.
  9. I know that it is possible to change the condo fiscal year to run 01Oct - 30Sep, as long as owners have approved it at an AGM/EGM. In order to defend such actions legitimacy at an upcoming EGM, I need the following information / specific references to condo law / regulation that I can reference to refute our condo JP claim that it is illegal to make such a fiscal year change. Questions: 1. Can the AGM vote for change be confirmed by a simple majority show of attendees hands, or is a certain percentage of floorspace required (25%, 33%, 50%, etc). 2. What followup actions by condo representatives (JP, committee, mgr, accountant, etc) are necessary to legally register the change with government office(s). Background: At a recent AGM at my Chiang Rai condo we were scheduled for a vote to change the fiscal year dates. One owner asked the JP if it was ok to make such a change. BTW, the condo pays this JP only 5,000 thb per month, and that may have a bearing on his replies. The JP initially replied that it was too difficult to do because it required coordination with and inspection visits by several government agencies (which he refused to name). I replied that my condo in Jomtien had already done so without referencing any great difficulties, and I requested the JP to elaborate on what he considered such great difficulties. The JP hummed & hawed a bit, and then pulled out a pocket phone from which he read supposed condo law stating that the condo fiscal year must run from 01Jan - 31Dec, and can not be changed. He went on to state that my condo in Jomtien had therefore acted illegally. Attendees at the AGM could not refute the JP, so decided not to vote on the issue now (AGM) but to wait until such time as someone can provide proof that the JP's hasty anwear was either wrong or not the full story. I was the one tasked with obtaing answears to the questions I am asking above. If I can come up with specific references that justify the legitimacy of a fiscal year change, and specific actions that need to be accomplished, we could then take a vote, if still desired, at an upcoming EGM already being planned to decide other issues. Further Background: My condo in Pattaya did it years ago but the new mgt there is under administrative fire from owners (for other reasons) and is not interested in being responsive to my current queries. Evidence that other condos have done this is shown by the following tv link / thread:
  10. Mountains in distance not clear like in January; but weather up here supposedly not as polluted this year. However, for the past 2 weeks I've had a never ending cough & mild headaches which I'm 100% sure is related to the underlying small particles in bad air. Same thing happens to me every March up here.
  11. Now now, calm down. Things are going to be alright; a couple people agree with you.
  12. I may not have been as clear as I should have been, sorry about that. I do get your point, and I couldn't agree with you more. Those using G4T for whatever reason, should not be criticized for doing so (Who wants to get in a line at 0500). But neither should those using G4T put on blinders as to CM Immigrations failure to emulate benchmark quality procedures set up at other Immigration offices (e.g., Jomtien); and the supposed connection between CM Immigration and G4T (even if some would argue that point).
  13. Man the repititious debate on a couple issues in these threads goes on endlessly doesn't it. If I had to use CM Immigration I would also use G4t to make my life easier. So, despite disliking the reason (poor service) for feeling compelled to turn to G4T for assistance, we should respect other people's right to use G4T to make their life easier also. But those who defend CM Immigration's drawn out failure, & apparant lack of incentive, to improve their extremely poor service, should also respect other peoples right to call a spade a spade. In most organizations creating streamlined quality procedures is considered commendable and for a business increases customers & revenue. For CM Immigration it's just reverse. Ignoring poor quality service drives customers to G4T, thereby increasing revenue.
  14. Retirement extension never more than 30 minutes for me, usually less. Best time was 7 minures (true), I found it hard to believe myself.
