U.S. Thanksgiving 2019

Any plans for Thanksgiving dinner from any Udon restaurants yet?
Had a fabulous meal at Brick House last year. I hope they do it again.

Re: Wrongly accused US Navy vet freed from Thai prison

He was an actor appearing in company commercials. He had nothing to do with the company itself. That is why the Thai court acquitted him.

Wrongly accused US Navy vet freed from Thai prison

Weird story. First, charged with bogus charge, then detained for about a year. One of very few farangs to ever be found innocent in a Thai court. Then, after court found him innocent, he was charged with overstaying his visa. :D Pray tell how does one update the visa while in jail? https://nypost.co...

Re: Good Girl Bad Boy

I lost my wallet in Tesco next to the Pharmacy, I found out later. The worker in the Pharmacy called my home and told me he had my wallet. The wallet had over 30,000 Baht in it - I was going to make a major purchase. That amount of money is surely more than the guy would make in a month or more. But...

US Passport Renewal

This may not be news to some but it is something I was unaware of until recently. US Passports can be renewed by mail in Thailand. Previously, I was thinking, since they cancelled the outreach program, I would have to go through the expense and hassle of traveling to Bangkok to renew my passport. So...

Re: Going to Sweden?

I think it may be customs. I was under the impression that under $35 no customs required.
How can a cassette be worth more than $35

I will try for the third time I guess and fil out a customs form.. strange that if customs form required the post office would send it twice with no mention of form.

Anyone going to Sweden anytime soon? I have a cassette from a video camera that a friend left here - very small. I have been trying to send via Thai mail. Twice now, after about 2 weeks, the package comes back to me with no explanation. I have asked if I need to declare customs and am told no since ...

Travel Agent vs Online

How does buying tickets from a local Travel Agency compare to buying from one of the many online places?
I would think the Travel Agent could not compete price wise. However, there are a lot of them so there must be a reason they stay in business.

Just wondering :|

Re: SetTop Box or Media Player?

Why not simply buy an android TV box? There are many brands available on Lazada. You can install apps that will allow you to watch any TV or Movies you like. Don't make the mistake of buying on the cheap. You must have a box with plenty of memory and disk space plus multiple processors. For example ...

Unless you have a lot of data to recover (No Backup), just rip it out and reinstall. I use CentOS 7 and had to do that last month after a failed update.

Re: Transferwise.

You can transfer any amount but if you transfer more than 50,000 US Dollar in one go you have to fill in a special form from the main bank in Bangkok. Unless there is a recent change in rules this is not true, I have transferred $100,000 twice, for car and house purchases, and never a question or a...
