Re: Jobs for young Thai people

I think this depends on the kid, my step son aged 21 went to a technical college from 18-20 years, whilst there he was sent on job experience with a motorbike manufacturer in Chonburi, no pay but free accommodation and food , this ended when it was disclosed the school was getting a back hander for ...

Re: Debit or Credit cards

.! . Just a thought, but if the card is an ATM card and not official Debit card might be the problem with getting registered for online purchases.

Re: Money transfer

[. TransferWise only works into Thailand. You can't use it for outgoing transfers. Amounts coming into Thailand, unless very large or extremely frequent, are never questioned Rubbish, only last week I sent the equivalent to 500 sterling to my daughter in Uk for Xmas shopping, however they do have a...

Re: Thai Red Cross.

I find is quite unusual that there is not a donation centre outside Bangkok as well as the mobile collection service. I was a longtime plasma donor with a reasonable number of donations and on the register for platelets. Neither of the machines used for plasma or platelets are mobile and I assume t...
