Re: Smoking ban on Hua Hin and Thai beaches, jail time for offenders

Very good idea, a smoker area. The losers will be non smoker areas. I smoked for 26 years and quit 2 years ago. I do not mind smokers at all, but one thing I do NOT feel like is a loser. As a matter of fact I feel the complete opposite that I managed to win the fight against nicotine addiction and ...

Re: Looking for a nice place to get in shape// Fitness

Checked their website and can't say I got any wiser. 500 per visit? Strange way to get regular customers. I thought most fitness venues/gyms had like monthly, 6 month, yearly prices and a drop-in price. I normally go to the gym 5-6 times a week for about 1 hour each time. If I were to go there it wo...

Re: 10 year visas now available, can somebody tell immigration

After what happened to the "to big to fail" globan US banking player, I humbly consider that in banking, anything can happen to any bank, anywhere. The only security a consumer would have is to have it in a country (like Switzerland) where the government gives a guarantee of around €100'000,-- /per...

Re: Swedish restaurant or bar

Some Swedish and Norwegian friends used to take us to a Swedish restaurant in Poonsuk Road (I think) just behind the temple. The food was very good and the prices reasonable. Called the Sweden Restaurant, if I remember correctly. Yes you're right I had forgotten that one. Must be one of the Swedish...

Re: Alternative way to upload images to the forum.

The easiest would be for the forum to incorporate an automatic resize function when uploading images. I do not know how many times I have tried to upload images and have been told it is too large or in other ways not conforming to the requirements the forum owners have put down. And many times I hav...

Re: 'How To' - Requirements for visa extensions etc

I have a question of when I can renew/extend my Non-Immigrant O visa based on marriage. My visa expires 3 April 2017. I am working offshore and have very limited possibilities to change around on my rotation. Previously I had the understanding that I could go for my annual extension within 30 days o...

Re: Shipping a laptop overseas

Well I probably will never send my laptop in the mail or by express delivery anyway. But if I would they would probably refuse to do it. The battery is built into the laptop and it is a LiPO type battery.

Re: Shipping a laptop overseas

Very simple, DHL will ship the laptop but not the battery. Your company will have to buy a new battery. I did this last year. Can't find the receipt so not sure how much it cost. Make sure your wrap the laptop really well to avoid damage. Take photos of it. DHL is in Blueport lower level. Just as a...

Re: Buying Paint

BB, reading this and seeing that you do not know how paint is sold/mixed these days, maybe you should consider some workers to do the job for you. Was the amount asked for painting your house really that monstrous?
