  1. I was once mistaken for his brother Han Sum Man ...
  2. It'll take a while to synchronize all those watches before anything else can happen ....
  3. Is that a light sabre or is he just pleased to see the farang girls in the tuk tuk?
  4. Does anyone know exactly what incentives are on offer and how to claim them?
  5. His name was Brian - has a bit of previous with graffiti:
  6. In the days before mobile phones I can remember following a lady driving a car erratically in Chiang Mai. She was driving slowly but weaving from side to side. I thought she might be drunk but when I finally managed to pass the reason for her driving became apparent - she was breast feeding her baby!
  7. In the report it quite clearly states that 'He gave his passport to us to make a copy in order to rent a motorbike, like we usually do'. Nothing about keeping the passport.
  8. I was thinking along the same lines but 'killing two birds with one stone'. Ship 'em all north of the border and then grant Scotland the independence they want - the Independent Scottish Islamic State. Hadrian's wall might need building up a bit but I am sure that the Donald could help to advise on that.

    Higher Education Institution Directory

    Thanks :-) I don't see his college on the lists but I'll get my wife to contact the Office of the Higher Education Commission on the numbers provided.
  10. Can anyone tell me where I can access a list of higher education institutions in Thailand that are approved and accredited by the Thai authorities? (I think that would now be the Office of the Higher Education Commission (OHEC) ). I thought that the UNESCO site had a link for this but it does not seem to be functional. I need to find out whether the institution that my son currently attends is legit. Thanks in advance.
  11. haha ... nice one. If you had said Phuket, Phi Phi or Khao Lak then what you say might be believable. The 2004 tsunami did not hit Pattaya as Pattaya is in the Gulf of Thailand and not the Andaman. This means that the tsunami would have travelled south and would have hit Singapore before reversing up the gulf of Thailand. Get your geography right before you post such crap.

    Football fiasco: Two Britons, Thai accused of Premier League piracy

    Spot on - and I'm sure most of us were led to believe the same. I won't be signing up for any more any time soon, particularly with outfits like those that sent the email - no website links and a dodgy looking email address either - idiots. I have been experimenting with Kodi, which I find is good for movie videos but doesn't work well for live TV as it keeps lagging, the sound doesn't sync properly and also keeps dropping out. Next I am trying a free IPTV App on my LG smart TV. I'll try and add an m3u playlist for the UK TV and sports channels and see how that goes.

    Football fiasco: Two Britons, Thai accused of Premier League piracy

    It didn't take long for the 'competition' to try and fill the void left by the demise of Expat TV and Expat Premium TV. I just received the following email from 'Asia Expat t.v.': Product and Subscriptions · IPTV Set Top Box + 6 months subscription. ฿ 15,800 IPTV Set Top Box plus six months subscription to access all our IPTV services. After first 6 months, you can continue with any of our 1, 6 or 12 month subscription options. We will email invoices automatically as they are due. Can be paid at any Kasikorn bank or ATM / online transfer. IPTV Set Top Box plus 3 months subscription ฿ 12,000 Contact: [email protected] I had a good laugh when I read it - After the Expat TV fiasco do they really think that people are stupid enough to cough up 15,800 baht for 6 months subscription? For my answer to this please rearrange the following words: touch bargepole would not it with

    The All New 365Sport (and ExpatPremium TV) thread

    RIP Expat Premium TV .... ... and now it seems RIP Expat TV too. They fraudsters should be enjoying a long stay at the Bangkok Hilton but if they have been given bail then it's likely they will have already disappeared.
