Re: A weird insect

Looking at your recent posts it appears you are either paranoid and/or living in an environment that you should be nowhere near. Can I suggest you move MUCH closer to either Arctic or Antarctic Circle! DON'T try Australia = the flies would really drive you crazy!

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

For those interested this is a copy of the actual email (I had deleted it from my PC but was able to retrieve it from my mail server). It's not a real pushy sales pitch and there is an 'unsubscribe' link at the bottom. I am pissed that they were able to get (buy) some of my visa details. From: Grace...

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

Had one of those! Calls herself Grace. The TV thread has no clue as to her source. Looking at the email she does not know the precise visa status of the recipient. PS. I don't think its libelist to name a party conducting an obviously illegal activity. TV posted a copy of the email and we all know h...

Re: Forget Peak Oil, We've hit Peak Car ...

Imploding?? = Dramatizing. I would suggest "adjusting" as the article says it's a 5 year plan and IMHO robotics, alternative energy and other technologies are streamlining the industry. Let's face it, when we are not so long dead in 50 or so years there will not be any private automobiles operating ...

Re: Thailand Cheapist for Medicines

I was looking at that article earlier, their Methodology does not make it clear whether the price structure was based on subsidies eg our Australian Medicare (PBS) rebate. The list price for a drug I use is AUD $1146.55 for a six month supply - after the rebate I actually pay $235.80. This is clearl...

Check out the facebook video (posted 4th Nov) at the 2:40 mark. Upgrade not finished and a stupid motorcyclist turns from a side street and rides up the wrong side of the road, in the middle. Signs of things to come?

Re: Jobs for young Thai people

After 5 years of collage in Udon with all the associated expenses my step daughter went down to Bangkok earlier this year to be presented with her diploma in business management by a member of the royal family. That was the last 10K Baht of completely wasted money. Should have spent it setting her u...

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

Some of my older (>10 years) stamps say "Application of stay is Permitted" the later stamps are saying "Extension of stay Permitted" Been through 2 passports and have not seen a "Permission to Stay" on the stamp
I'm sure it means the same thing. This is all just pedantics!

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

@ pf-flyer My Thai wife of 46 years and I arrived by air in Thailand on 12 AUG 2012. Both of us went through immigration at the airport with a U.S. Passport with a Non-immigration O-A visa. Can I ask you if your TW still has a Thai Passport? If so why didn't she enter the Kingdom on that? Obviously,...

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

Sitting at Swampy airport typing this, having come through immigration without incident about an hour ago. IO got a bit of a panicked look when he saw the AO visa, and spoke to the guy in the adjacent booth. That guy saw my re-entry permit, and told him to stamp me in until late July 2020. Insuranc...

Re: Radio Stations?

I stream my favorite radio stations (world wide) to my phone and use Blue Tooth to connect to my car radio or home audio system.

Try the "Tune In" app on your phone - works for me. I also use:-

Re: Mandatory health insurance for Non O-A visa effective from 31 October

OPTION #1 would work for me right now! The OA visa was issued a >year ago and under the guidelines of that visa is still valid. As you say until mid 2020 be it with continued boarder runs. Get a 3 month O visa then and extend it to Retirement status. Your are not applying for another OA visa through...
