Re: HP computer warranty

The HP Service Center is on Thanon Tahan. I went there a few months ago to have my laptop repaired. According to the receptionist she had to call Bangkok to verify if my warranty was still valid and would call me back as soon as she had their OK. Up to now she still hasn't called. But actually I was...

Re: Crypto-currencies: The future is now

Yeah, still a lot of leverage for gamblers left. They haven't reached the level of the Dutch tulip bulbs in the 17th Century yet when tulips were used as a form of money in their own right, and one single bulb was enough to buy you a manor. :lol:

Re: The logic of the asylum!

I can not see this happenig at THESE rates. Tourism is a big revenue earner, and if Thailand becomes known as an expensive place to drink , backpackers will spend less time here ( and less money) *** tourists likewise. Two huge markets affected. I too agree that the whole idea is silly but, as note...

Re: Taking non-EEA partners to the UK

I look forward to Brexit, but would like a sensible and compassionate approach to be taken with native born Brits [/u] being able to bring the...

Scan for skin cancer

I can highly recommend your namesake, Dr Somchai, discussed before in this topic. Go to him and save yourself plenty of bucks. He's an honest and knowledgeable dermatologist and speaks good English.

Air Conditioner -- Best Retailer and Prices

Well, we've been using Standard for years. Very professional and I've never had any reason for complaint. It is just because of the good reviews about Somphon on this topic, and the fact that we live around the corner from his shop that we decided to give him a try. Of course we're back to Standard ...

Well, your mileage may vary as far as Somphon is concerned. I for one can definitely NOT share your enthusiasm about him and would certainly NOT recommend him. Based on the recommendations here my wife called him on Tuesday to come and service our units and he made an appointment for today. He didn'...

Yeah, right! These Monks should take a leaf out of the book of Anglican/Episcopal/Catholic Priests who DO NOT bless inanimate objects.
Or do they? :confused:

Yes, it's cheaper and more convenient to get an extension at the immigration office.Go there with 1,900 baht, a copy of your passport, a copy of your arrival card, a pass photo, your ticket out of Thailand, and Bob's your uncle. :-"

I got my first VN visa from their Embassy in Phnom Penh. I'd read on travel forums that it would take 2 days, day 1 for the application and day 2 to collect it, but it was a breeze. My mate and I went to the Embassy about half an hour before closing time and got ours after waiting about 20 minutes. ...

No need to go to KK if you're flying to Nam. You can get a Visa On Arrival online from the comfort of your armchair. And it's cheaper into the bargain.
