WD-40

I have a security door with a frozen lock. I twisted the key into two pieces while trying to get the thing open. I am spraying the accessible parts with a light oil but would like to use WD-40 since I would have more confidence in it working. My question is: Where can I buy a can of WD-40 in or arou...

Twice-weekly news analysis. Listen to this a couple of times and you will not bother with MSM again.

Re: driver license

Maybe the police in some places don't have a problem with long stay foreigners driving on out-of-country driving licenses but in the case of a claim, insurance companies might use the fact that the driver was not legally licensed as a valid reason to deny the claim. (My personal opinion.)

Re: Car Tax renewal

Smart Drive on the left side of Nongbua-Songsai Rd. after you dive about 1 kM from the ring road toward Nongsai.

Have the quick inspection, pay the money, and come back the next day to pick up your receipt and window sticker.

These days does Udon require all this testing for renewing a 5 year license?

Re: Am I being charged for a more expensive ATM card that I want?

I got on the bank's website and checked out their choices of ATM cards. I have a very Hi-so ATM card! This appears to be the most expensive one they currently offer. I have accidental death and dismemberment insurance to the tune of 30,000 baht! The card can be used outside of Thailand, and there ar...

Am I being charged for a more expensive ATM card that I want?

Received the below notice of funds being deducted from my Krung Thai savings account. 25-05-17@20:32 Overdue payment amount of 599.00THB from your account XXXXXXX for annual card fee. That feels like a lot of money for a simple ATM card and a lot more than I think I have been paying in recent years....

Re: Renew drivers License AEK Udon

AEK -that;s much better than driving 17 km out into the sticks.

I hear that certification of one's residence is turning into a hot topic here these days. Somewhat more difficult than it was just a few months ago, and not necessarily talking about the Land Transportation Department.
