Re: RooJai Car and Motorbike Insurance

Yup, just show it to the assistant on the pump. My little car wouldn't hold 1,000b of fuel. so they gave me back 400b in cash. After we did that they loaded another 500b onto the phone. Be aware there is a time limit to use it, a month I think.

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

Hi all, I don't know how they got your address but these guys are def legit. I have just used them to get my renewal and they were great. Only required 2 photos and passport and 14,000 baht, no visit to immi. I can recommend them.

Thai Subtitle Downloader

Gas Stove

Hi Guys,
Looking at buying a gas stove, but it doesn"t mention if it is LPG or natural gas? Is there natural gas in Thailand, there certainly isn"t where I live.
