Re: Why won't she marry me

Just to add:-

This book does not necessarily apply to the OP but should be COMPULSORY reading for any Farang intending to get into a Thai relationship.

Re: Why won't she marry me

Your not "Robinson Cruiso" when it comes to this type of Thai relationship. Take the hint and move on. OR, in the not too distant future you will be in the same boat again minus 1Mil Baht plus plus and maybe even a house and land if she keeps playing the game! Lived here over 17 years and see it as ...

Re: 90 DAY REPORTING WORKING WELL..

Thanks for that, just did a dummy run = looks encouraging. Been doing mine 'online' (on and off) for >2 years now. Always had to use IE which, IMHO, sucks.

Re: HOW RIDICULOUS IS THIS? (TOYOTA UDON THANI)

There are other conciderations here! The cost of a new windscreen = loss of no claim bonus + excess payment? (3000 Baht?). OK there is a crack but it is not dangerous just the outer lamination on the left side. If TGF is currently driving on shoddy roads why not wait a few months and re avaluate the...

Re: HOW RIDICULOUS IS THIS? (TOYOTA UDON THANI)

I can understand where the dealers are coming from = an insurance claim is NOT their problem! Your course of action should have been to go directly to the insurance company and told em of the incident/accident, they would have sent a rep out within hours to do an assessment and get the ball rolling ...

Re: CIA base in Udon

Having lived in Ban Dung since late 2001 I'll just make a few points here:- VOA = CIA I have no idea, just a few rumors about a mini van doing daily trips to and from Udon with American personal on board. Early in 2002 I bought an expensive multi band radio (SW MW LW and FM) just so as I could liste...

Re: Proposal of new Affordable Thai Health Insurance

So let me get this straight, this health scheme being talked about is 2k baht per month, 24 k per year no outpatient at a Gov hospital. My Bupa platinum cover is 3,333 baht per month, 40 k per year no outpatient. So I stay in a private hospital with A/C, good doctors, nursing care, food in a privat...

Re: HOTELS NEAR DON MUANG AIRPORT

Agreed, I use the Amari if laying over for a morning connection to Udon. A bit weather beaten but has a good bistro open until about 23:00 for a meal and beer. Note; just be careful of the escalator leading down to the foyer from the sky bridge if you have heavy luggage. It starts automatically and ...

Re: PHEN, Pink card from the Ampher?

Wow man it really ain't worth all that trouble, I've had mine about 5 years and can count on the fingers of one hand when it's been really useful, more so than say my Thai driving license. Only last week it was turned down by Bangkok Bank and Thai Air as identification . I have to agree, the only r...

Re: 2018 Market Crash

Wow!! So much trading knowledge makes me wonder why you're in(or associated with) a 'shyte' hole like Udon and not drinking Margareta's on the Costa del Sol on a multi million dollar yacht?

I, for one, have bookmarked this post for future reference!

Re: Cheap learner car required

Probably a bit off topic, I don't know of a car at that price:- BUT: Everyone has different ideas. I feel a "learner car" is a great idea, there is more to driving than a dozen lessons. I bought TW and her 19 yo (at the time), a reasonable good Toyota Vios at the auctions, 145,000 Baht. The deal was...
