Re: Immigration to introduce 90 day reporting online

Is the online reporting site working for anyone ? I've tried for two days but the site appears to be down.

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

If it works as well as the one at the mouth of soi 112 it will be a big improvement. The main problem I see at Soi 112 is the traffic coming down Soi 112 from the west think they have the right-of-way when in reality they have a Stop Sign, which is way off to the side so most simply ignore it and ch...

Re: Power fluctuations - electric supply

I don't know the answer to your question but the first thing I would check is the size of the electric wiring to your air conditioner. My experience is that even professional aircon installers take shortcuts and try to either reuse or install wiring that is too small per the manufacturers minimum re...

Re: Email provider

For many people, this is actually a two or three part decision process. 1). Which email provider to choose (gmail, yahoo, Microsoft, iCloud, etc, etc) 2). How to access, read and manage your email once you choose and setup an account with a provider. 3). Decision to go with the providers free offeri...

Re: Doing 90 day and annual retirement extension at the same time

Immigration advised me I could process my annual extension 45 days before the due date, I did not test the 45 day window as I renewed my extension about 15 days before my due date. Separately, my parents were also advised they could renew 45 days prior to due date.

Re: Maximum ATM withdrawal and lowest fee

Yesterday, for the first time ever, my ATM fee was 220 bt. This was at a green Kasikornbank ATM. I suspect all the other banks will shortly be charging 220 bt, if they aren't already. Luckily, the card I use is with a USA investment firm that reimburses the ATM fee back into my account within a coup...

Re: Maximum ATM withdrawal and lowest fee

My experience is they all charge 200 bt fee now. I suggest you consider taking your card to the counter inside the bank, process the withdrawal with the teller, instead of the machine outside. I'm positive you can withdraw much more each time working with the person at the counter than you can at th...

Re: Grout Sealant, where to buy?

Oh course the grout should be completely dried, probably a couple of days, before sealing.

Re: Grout Sealant, where to buy?

Instructions are all in Thai, but essentially, tape off the grout to keep the liquid off the tile or stone, apply the liquid sparingly, work it in lightly with a toothbrush, let stand for 15 minutes, then wipe away excess liquid taking care not to get it on the tile or stone. Let dry then remove the...

Re: Grout Sealant, where to buy?

We bought ours at Homepro. Green plastic, 500ml bottle, yellow cap. Top of label says COTTO, mid label it says FUGAPROOF, bottom of label it says MADE IN ITALY.

The Thai word for FUGAPROOF is ฟูกาพรูฟ in case you want to show this note to them at Homepro.

Re: Would you drive a black car in Hua Hin?

I purchased my Pajero in 2013, when considering which color to choose I was informed all colors were the same price, except white. Had to pay an additional 15,000 baht for white. The dealer was quite upfront when I asked why, he explained it was because white was more popular and the price differenc...

Both times we were told to come back tomorrow at 9am to check if the buses are running. We tried to purchase tickets b...
