Re: Farang in fatal traffic accident

Again purely heresay from khun Paul. How can you justify commentating on this tragic accident? It is obvious that you were not near the scene but your self oppinionated nature has to make such a stupid comment. Please comment on FACTUALS and do use the spell checker as obviously spelling and gramme...

Re: Collateral for Home Loan

I would think that the bank taking the gold as collateral,would have the right to liquidate it if the price dropped to challenge the balance owed.Once ''put up'' as collateral you would lose control of it other than to sell and retire the loan! :-k

Re: Traffic in Udon. Fatal.

The death is unfortunate and unnecessary,but it is normal driving here to not stop for pedestrians,the drivers seem to have the right a way.Unless the car swerved out of the driving lane,the falang caused his own death whether from ignorance or incompetence.This is Thailand,and whether anyone likes ...
