    Thai IDs for Foreigners and their beneifts

    Not required in Udon Thani...just show the original, give them copies with my signature in blue ink.
  3. In my little village 5 of the local constabulary come by every couple years to a photo, plus a copy of my passport. We know them all (small town, everybody knows of knows of every, or is related) so it’s more of a social call. They’re evidently required to know the residence of the foreigners living in their jurisdiction in the event of death or accident. One of the few things they actually prepare for in advance! No problems...

    Neverending Peugeot-woes

    Peugeot owners have *always* been a loyal breed. Back in the 70s, a good friend owned three of the. He said he needed three to keep one running. Lovely car, really.

    Thai IDs for Foreigners and their beneifts

    My province doesn’t have an airport, yet I use my pink ID card going through security at the other 3 airports I use.

    Sorry, meant to say my D/L has never been accepted - they always insisted on a passport, until I got the ID card.

    Your post highlights the inconsistency that Thai workers have in understanding and implementing laws and regulations. Even though my Two Thai Drivers Licenses have never been accepted for the items I listed, you and I actually have no argument.

    It’s a great convenience. Domestic flight check-ins. Hotel check-ins, Thai price anywhere I’ve used it. Phone and SIM card purchases. Warranty registrations. Bonus is the change in attitude that occurs when you show it.

    Porsche mishap at top Sydney hotel

    Porsche: There Is No Substitute Except, of course, for a competent driver!
  10. Th US will re-impose sanctions...but not the sanctions against Russia that Congress passed and Trump signed into law. They were supposed to take place in December, but Trump continues to run roughshod over the Constitution. Trump tweeted that Iran increased its military budget by 40% since the treaty was signed, with the implication that it was for nuclear armaments. In fact, their budget increased by 250% - all for conventional weapons. As he continues to make enemies of US allies, the US economy has slowed down, the dollar has lost value, the deficit has increased, and he has shown that rather than draining the swamp, he has plugged the drain. To quote him, “SAD!”
  11. Is this the same DHL that forced the closure of hundreds of KFC outlets in the UK because they were unable to deliver the chickens? Anyway, the nearest DHL office to my corner of Isaan is 75 KMs away, and they give the parcels to some local mom-and-pop delivery company who can’t seem to find my address. I don’t think I’ll be giving any custom to Shoppee.
