Re: Smart Phone Addiction.

I walked out of Central a few days ago and did a double take....there was an elderly gentleman at one of the outdoor Starbucks tables.....reading a Bangkok Post. Funny, how back in the day of everyone with their nose stuck in a magazine/book/newspaper at the departure gates at an airport, no one cr...

Re: Smart Phone Addiction.

The constant use of a smartphone is definitely a bad habit at best and a pure addiction at worst. My wife and I spend a great deal of time on her iPad and my PC while at home, and that is our filler for idle time...same as would be watching TV continuously. When we go out I seldom use my phone for i...

Re: Chiropractor

I paid a visit to Dr. Logan at the International Chiropractic Clinic of Laos in Vientiane. Of course, since I don't have a multiple entry extension of stay in Thailand, I had to get a reentry permit plus pay the visa fee to cross over into Laos. His initial consultation if free, but then each sessio...

Can someone please give us the location of Sport's Bar so we don't have to walk up and down the soi looking for it. Give us a known landmark that it is near...or a map. Pretty please with sugar on it!

Re: One year(marriage) in Savanakhet

There is a big difference between getting a 60 day extension of a visa and a 60 extension of an extension of stay based on retirement in order the "visit a Thai wife", so I would appreciate some clarity since I may need to make use of this. I arrived in Thailand in June 2010 on a Non-Immigrant O-A ...

Re: 2017 Honda Jazz Wheels

Perhaps more clarity to the ad is needed. As I understand it you are selling 4 alloy wheels with 4 tires, and BOTH wheels and tires have only 100 KMs on them. Is that correct? Also, can this set be used on any car with 16 inch wheels, or will they only fit on a Honda Jazz? If most any car can use th...

Re: Airsoft and BB for sale

I'm not quite sure it's legal to own these guns without a proper license and paperwork. Perhaps it might be easier for you to sell them if you would offer some proof of what you have claimed. Otherwise, it would be very dangerous for someone to be caught with these.

Just make sure that none of the drivers of that vehicle are 71 or older.

That was a deal killer for me; otherwise, I could have saved about 8,000 on two a...
