Photocopy service near Central or Immigration Office

It's that time of year again -time to extend my permission to stay, and I am going to need to have a lot of photocopies made between the time I visit my bank in Central and the time I get to the Immigration office. Can anybody recommend such a service? Thank you in advance for any helpful information.

Can anybody recommend a building contractor (Sept. 2020)

A friend of mine is planning to build a house in the area and he is looking for a good builder. He will appreciate any recommendations of "known good" builders.

Anybody tried mailing anything to Australia? How did it go?

I want to send some things to a friend in Australia but I understand that international mail is not working well because of the lack of passenger flights between countries. Having looked around for a while it seems that courier services are working between here and Australia but I cannot tell whethe...

Guy told the wife while I was watching the safety flick that they prefer pink ID card vice passport to preclude passport validity conflicts with their five year policy. (some text removed for clarity
Do they think your identity changes when your passport expires?

https://ibb.co/7Ydjw9C I had lens replacements late last year. It was a greater than two month process with recovery time between the two eyes, but the results are amazing.

Can anybody here recommend an English speaking electrician?

The wiring in my house is of very poor quality. At the moment I have a couple of open circuits and one intermittent (daily) short circuit. Being single and not speaking much Thai I find myself in a quandary. Can anybody here recommend an English speaking electrician? Sitting in the dark (literally) ...

Re: Blowing into a breathalyzer that was blown into by hundreds of others

Thank you for checking that out. By the way, the reason I was pulled over to take the accurate test (as opposed to screening) is because I had put rubbing alcohol on my itching arms and the machine must have picked it up. That was the second time rubbing alcohol on my body triggered a secondary test...

Blowing into a breathalyzer that was blown into by hundreds of others

Got caught in a alcohol check on the Ring Road and was told to blow into the screening breath analyzer. I did so and only later wondered whether throwing up a roadblock and making all the drivers on the highway blow into the same unsanitary breath analyzer while the government wants people to wear m...

Re: New style electricity bill?

Thank you for that the-monk. I just noticed that there is no bar code on the lower section, so it would difficult (to say the very least) to scan it, I take it to mean that it is not a bill.

New style electricity bill?

I received a two-part electricity bill, where the two parts can be separated by tearing along the perforation. I don't read Thai but my girlfriend can, but I am not sure she both understood why there were two parts, that the explained it to me correctly, and that I understand. From what I think I un...

Re: Why do bar girls have tattoos on their shoulders necks etc

Many are for good luck and for money to come to them. A friend's girlfriend doesn't like to have tattoos so she had her lucky tattoo made with water so it could not be seen. I'll bet it felt the same, thought :-)

Re: Water line and meter questions (town water)

Well, if the line is not very long so the friction would be low and the water tower that supplies the pressure is a bit more than 30 meters, I could understand where your neighbor is coming from. A 30 meter column of water would develop abut 45 pounds per square inch of static water pressure. That v...

Re: Rumor Check: Problems with income method in Udon for extension based on retirement

Received my 1 year extension based on retirement today, using the income method. It only took three trips to the bank and three to Immigration. Remember 2020 is a leap year, so if your next one year extension covers the end of February, request an extension of 366 days (not 365). It turns out that t...
