Re: Time Requirement, Post Extension, for 800K in Bank

Would like to hear from anyone (American, British, Australian, Denmark) completing their extension this way and their experiences. FYI The reports have stated that the Danish embassy have reversed the policy and now do issue embassy letters. It it only the three big (in terms of numbers of resident...

Re: Rolled Steel Roofing with PU Foam

Trying to work out what STWW is saying but cannot. ( spray PU is about 300 Baht per 25mm per square metre so expensive) I have never seen any choice of thickness of bonded PU. The key to understanding :-s is in the word that I've highlighted in the posting Same material different application proces...

Re: Rolled Steel Roofing with PU Foam

This is an interesting and timely topic, as my wife plans to build a small house for her father. This will be a modern design with angle-pitched roofs made of box profile steel cladding. What is the acceptable insulation depth bonded to the cladding? Both from a heat barrier and rain noise barrier....

Re: Wall type

I asked about the roof in another post. This concerns the wall construction. What's the best for insulation? Q-Con block? Red brick? Breeze block (what type of breeze block? How does the price of each compare m2? If you are going for a single skin then AAC (Q-Con is one brand) is hands down the bes...

Re: Worldwide Legal Issues with Google, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube et al

. Now Facebook and Apple are going at it. Forbes is reporting that Facebook is telling users that things work better if users enable real-time location tracking. Facebook warns that Apple and Android devices may prevent the platform from tracking you. I would think that's a GOOD thing. In other wor...

Re: Lost in Translation My Internet Connection Update 5G?

Sounds to me like 5GHz band on your wifi, rather than 5G mobile band (which I don't believe has been rolled out yet in Thailand). The newer routers will give you a choice of 2.4GHz or 5GHz wifi. Here is the difference: The speed difference between and interference of other items 2.4GHz and 5GHz is ...

Forgive me, but these are just place names with no factual evidence ie. copy and paste or provide link to the articles that you claim are first hand. I have many friends in Pattaya who also have friends in various area's of the Kingdom and none of them have ever had these requests or heard of anyon...

Re: Udon Thani Immigration:Is Affidavit still valid for non USA, UK, DK, AUS retirees?

I would be a little careful of the last suggestion and check carefully what will happen to a joint account on the demise of one of the holders. It is certainly possible, maybe likely maybe not, that a joint account will be frozen. The funds automatically will be half owned by the deceased so possib...

Re: Time Requirement, Post Extension, for 800K in Bank

Where are these first hand reports from, where are they published, what province is issuing these additional 90 day bank reports from. Simple questions, just need factual answers. If not available as actual facts why add to the confusion already in place. Pattaya, Samui or Phuket. FWIW Using the qu...

Re: Time Requirement, Post Extension, for 800K in Bank

I have checked with friends in various parts of the Kingdom and no one yet has been asked to prove they had 800k in the bank after an extension was issue and no one has ever been checked that they have maintained 400k thereafter. It seems when Big Joke was sacked that amended rule was as well. If s...

Re: Udon Thani Immigration:Is Affidavit still valid for non USA, UK, DK, AUS retirees?

If I remember what I read a while back the account, be it 400k or 800k, can not be a joint account. If this is correct and the owner dies how does the Thai spouse get access to the funds? Setup your account with internet banking, give the internet account access information to your spouse. They can...

Re: Another Country Grounds The 737-MAX

The recertification of the 737 MAX has further delays. The FAA and Boeing have lost the trust of the EASA (European aviation safety) who will not just accept the certification as has been the case up to now and require that they, the EASA, certify some/all modifications and require more information ...
