  1. Our company recently received a letter from a collection company about on outstanding phone bill of an employee. It was just a heads up that they will soon go to court and that there is a possibility the court orders that the company withholds a part of the salary to settle the debt. Mind you this was over a mere 2000 Baht. So if the OP is employed in Thailand, they will find you and will come after you.

    Ah. That's a good idea. If there is, I can wire a switch from there.

    Okay. Will check that. But it had this issue since I got the car when it was almost new.

    And the follow up Tiger on which the was based.
  6. On cold and rainy days like today (at least where I am in the South), it bothers me that the aircon cannot be turned off in my Toyota Sportrider. Of course with the fan off it is okay, but in heavy rain the windows then fog up. With the fan running, the aircon also comes on, and even in its lowest (least cold) setting it's too chilly. Any ideas if it's possible to add a physical switch that turns off the aircon compressor while stil allowing the fan to work? thanks!
  7. The driving here is better than this Only because we do not have snow Imagine if we did? We just need more dashcams in Thailand! Great stuff in the vid. I now also understand why a litre of wodka before getting behind the weel is mandatory in Russia. Some nice flexible bodies in those clips!!!
  8. If you only have B/S to post please go back to bed. If not provide proof of the ilegal activies the police are supposed to be doing. I ran a bar on Samui every month the police came and asked for money to stay open or they close bar have lady work and stay open late. No proof but fact, and ask any bar owner on the island if they have to pay police or not, also happens in Pattaya and even Udon Thani. Check out youtube plenty of links on there. I assume you mean that the police requested money for a bar to stay open after legally allowed opening times, or to (illegally) rent out women? Obvious proof of illegal activity by police. But you write it like it is a complaint. If that is the case then the alternative is that police follows the law, meaning bars close at 12 and don't have girls working. I kinda like the lawlessness on Samui. Take your own responsibility. Just drive a big car and wear your seatbelt and you will significantly reduce your health risks on Samui. I don't have a problem with helmetless motosai driving suicidal tourists or locals. Up to them. no we stayed with in the zone times, i did not get payed after 2 am so sure as hell was not going to work for free, not a complaint at all, i did not pay the police the money it was just an example to the guy who asked for proof, not proof just a fact. What the girls did was between them and the customers, we never rented out any girls, if a guy wanted to take away a girl from her job of work, he was asked to replace her salary in her absence. so nothing illegal so far. should you knock over and kill one of those helmet less locals you would probably have a problem. So i gather you conclude Samui is lawless and like it that way, personally i liked it when the police sat in the police box at top of Green Mango and the tourist police rode about on thier bicycles around the area at closing times. Despite the meetings etc where ever they be, and about what ever things will not change, i don't mean just Samui but every where with in Tourist Thailand areas. Samui does however have the lowest police profile of any where i have visited, both tourist and non tourist. Compared to other tourist spots in Thailand and certainly in ohger parts in the world with s heavy police presence, Samui seems to be pretty safe. Don't know if that's just my perception or the actual reality though. So even with our no-good police force I feel safe. I am also pretty sure that Thailand is an attractive tourist destination partly because the police doesn't care much what goes on. When tourists start to feel unsafe, it's amazing how quickly police will intervene. Helmetless driving does not have that priority, and I agree. I take full responsibility in case of an accident, that's why I have 1st class insurance with a large bailbond. I won't be hurt by someone else's stupidity. I know several non girlie bar owners who never have paid police. Your argument that the bar you worked in was following the rules is not true. The girl-for-rent explanation you give is ridiculous. And official closing time in Thailand is midnight. Only exceptions are Silom/Patpong, New Petchaburi roads, and Ratchadaphisek in Bangkok, which have closing times up to 2am depending on type of venue.
