Re: Farangs who don’t wear face masks should be kicked out of Thailand says health minister

A few have mentioned hygiene, also learning about it at school. I have taught at 2 universities (one was mainly for nursing), 3 high schools and 1 primary school in the last 11 years. Never have I ever seen a bar of soap or hand cleaner in a washroom. The medical university used to put soap in the w...

Re: REPORTING ARRIVAL IN THAILAND/UDON TO IMMIGRATION

Amazing how they differ. I was fined 2000 when I first arrived in Nan 5 years ago for not reporting. Then moved to Ubon and they laughed when I reported. Now back in Nan and reported promptly. But get this, if I go to Ubon, two days on the bike, they want me to report to the police at the halfway po...

Re: Refrigerator is dead

^ no sir, nor the defrost button.

Seeing as the lights are out as well I think it may be at the beginning of the electrical path...... but I'm an English teacher,
not a technician. :)

Checked the plug, the socket, the breaker. Unplugged it plugged it back in... nothing I've been googling for over an ...

Re: Tiger Retro (Honda Cub copy) with sidecar - fully legal

""One's thinking of driving it to Chiang Mai from Loei, over 500 kms! Top"" I would really consider putting it on Kaidee.com. It's a Thai site so you may need a little help if you can't read Thai. I can't but still managed with google translate. My last bike sold on there in a few days after it bein...

Re: Tiger Retro (Honda Cub copy) with sidecar - fully legal

Nice little bike. A friend has one and he mentioned what he thought it was worth. I thought he was crazy, he was claiming it was now worth more than the new price. I looked around on the net and found a couple that were going for a high price. It's discontinued and somewhat of a collector piece bein...

Re: New Honda Bike gift promotions

Everyone has different opinions, I shared mine, you shared yours. Good to have different perspectives, the OP can choose as he likes. Everyone I know/ride with here in Thailand that rides big bikes wear full face. Interesting enough so do their Thai ladies. The Thai ladies are also ok with proper ja...

Re: New Honda Bike gift promotions

nice bike, nice go-pro, I'd take the helmet back to Honda and politely ask if you can trade in and up on a full face. They're hotter but offer much better protection.

Dog bite in Thailand - a word of Warning

My rabies knowledge is limited to "Old Yellar" , so not up to date,

I understand the shots when a random dog bites you. If it's the neighbors dog can't you test the dog, instead of taking all the shots yourself?

From Thailand to Laos

Thanks to both of you, good information. The link states that personal effects are fine so it should not be much trouble. Nothing really looks brand new so, fingers crossed, should be good.

From Thailand to Laos

Hello, I have a decent job awaiting in Vientiane. I have lived in Thailand about 4 years now. I am curious about driving across the bridge with my Thai friend in her truck with a full load of my possessions. TV, computer, clothes etc. Is that a big deal or are there any formalities or worse taxes? T...

I bought the bike 1.5 years ago with 2000km on it. It now has 56,000km. The bike has never failed, always starts easy and runs fine. I have over maintained it since I have owned it as it's so darn cheap to get it serviced. replaced the speedo 10,000km ago, still have the original. Rear shock was don...

SLUR music clip in Nazi clothes

I was quizing students last month. Favorite food, favorite colour, favorite person. I was shocked when two of the students said Hitler for favorite person. "" I like mustache"" . Later on I saw the video and understood, but I did mention to the students best not to say that. Weird stuff.

Income Tax

I just paid tax for the last school year. I was charged 2% on 300,000 baht. No dependents. I paid at the town office. 10% would have hurt a bit but 2% was okay. Does location matter at all?

Dual sport motorcycles

i am just a little confused. Do you want a street legal dual sport or a dirt bike? Dirt bikes don't get registered as they are not road legal so the green book is a moot point, you don't need one. Dual sport, thats a whole different ballgame with lots of red tape.
