For the third time this year (consecutive), we've done our 90day checks online. This time, I used MS Edge for my report and Chrome for my wife's......just to see if both worked. Both worked. Confirmation within 24 hours. Three trips to immigration saved. No driving, no parking problems, no queue, no...

Re: Bank Holidays in Thailand for 2019

Our garbage is picked up once a week on Mondays. If Monday is a holiday, I set out the trash can. Sometimes they pick up trash on holiday-Mondays......and, if not, then on Tuesday.
Sort of the same problem in Texas......trash is picked up on some holidays, not all.

Looking for first-hand feedback from people who have extended under the ?new? 800k in the bank rules. How is the Udon office handling the alleged requirement to keep 800k in the bank after you extend? And for how long (if applicable)?

Re: learning the thai language

My loose translation:. From the customer: I have only myself to blame if I die (because the food is too hot) .
From the restaurant:. If you die, we can't be held liable.
Any other ideas?

I was going to post an article about a former police employee in Udon found with several vehicles and a boatload (40+) of motorcycles in his two homes.....along with weapons and ammunition. Instead, there's this glimmer of good news. A 27 year-old teacher was returning to her vehicle after having lu...

เผ็ดตายไม่เอาเรื่อง

These are the kind of phrases that require some analysis.....straight dictionary translation helps but a bit.

Imagine if the McDonald's $3million coffee lady had returned her cup saying it wasn't hot enough and she asked for it to be blazing hot (to endure a long ride maybe).
