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

There are more pages of threads on this subject (UM/TV) than there are closed-door-testimony transcript pages on Trump. At least the transcript pages give some clarity.

If you've lived in Thailand for any amount of time and haven't tried to carry a load of fruit or freshly harvested rice on your shoulders, you haven't experienced Thailand.

Re: Ferrule / tip replacement

Across the street from the pet store that's in front of Bangkok Hospital, there's a large parking lot that's alongside the rail tracks. Last time I was in the area, there was a large snooker club. I'd guess the people there may have the answer. If not, try the link below https://www.google.com/url?s...
