Retirement Extn. Under Consideration. New Hoops?

( I use a stat dec from the Australian Embassy) and was told I had to have it up dated. Ok, I had it updated.....) At that time the Embassy statement was about 2 months old? They have to accept Embassy statements up to 6 months old! Sorry, I expressed myself poorly. The Stat Dec from the Embassy wa...

Retirement Extn. Under Consideration. New Hoops?

Of course on the day I applied they then wanted to see my bankbook ( I use a stat dec from the Australian Embassy) and was told I had to have it up dated. Ok...

Bangkok Air Udon-Bangkok

I was booked to fly Udon to Sydney with Bangkok Air and Qantas on April 2. My flights were midday from Udon and 1830 from BKK. With the cancellation of the midday flight Bangkok Air then booked me on the evening flight to arrive 2 or 3 hours after my Qantas flight left. After a call to Qantas in Ban...

Bangkok Air Udon-Bangkok

I am quickly losing faith in Bangkok Air. Sat. 21/2 departure BKK was 2 hours + late and 26/2 the evening flight was cancelled. They booked me on Thai Smile. I was at their check in about 3.5 hours before scheduled departure and I wonder how those who arrived later fared.

Udon Airport - International?

I flew into Udon yesterday, booked Qantas from Aust through to Udon. The BKK-Udon leg was Bangkok Air. On arrival at UT I waited just inside the International luggage area so I could keep an eye on both sets of luggage carosels. I was still there 5 mins after everyone left and just starting to fill ...

URGENT VISA QUESTION!!!!!!!

I renewed my Australian passport in March of this year. At BKK airport I presented both passports and gained entry. At Udon Immigration they transferred my extension and re-entry stamps from the old to the new and charged me 500 Baht for a free service.

The Passing of a Giant

I greatly admired Gough Whitlam. There are a few things that need to be straightened out though. The Whitlam Government was elected on 2 December 1972. By this time the bulk of Australian troops had been withdrawn from Vietnam leaving the training team (AATV) in place along with some other small uni...

Thai Airways new business plan

I fly Udon to BKK on 1 October with Thai Smile. I was near the airport this morning so took the opportunity to check on the 30kg baggage for domestic flights. At the Thai ticket office they said that is for Thai flights and Thai Smile is still 20 KG.

BUZZ???? Steak Buffet Restaurant

In the days before UD Town there was a Steak and Salad Buffet alongside the Koala Bar. Does anyone know where they have re-located to and if so what are they called now.

Dose Espresso - Nice Bistro Across from Maeya (Sponsor)

I had another dinner at Dose last night. As before the meal, service and ambience could not be faulted. I had the special "Chicken Breast stuffed with Spinach but they altered the meal for me with salad instead of potato. It was excellent. Started with OJ then main meal and finished with a flat whit...
