Re: Canadian Dark Web kingpin found dead in Thai jail cell

Westerners in Thai who are intent on killing themselves are very ingenious--remember the guy who tied his own hands behind his back and then hung himself.

Re: Tourist crackdown: tourist visa holders being asked to show 20,000 baht in cash entering Thailand

I read an article, it may have been on the forum. It was about TAT not being so interested in numbers but who the visitors are. Aussies were favored--they come for short periods, mostly well inside the 30-day limit and they spend over 5000b/person /day.

Re: Pies in Hua Hin

BIAS is not necessarily a negative emotion. If you like something . you say so, that shows a bias. Whatis wrong with that?
If all reviews of everything said --It's Ok or it's not bad, how helpful would that be???

Re: List of jobs reserved for Thais to be revised

We don't seem to hear anything about the AEC anymore. One of the agreements in it was the flow of professionals across borders.

Re: Does anyone know this dipstick (cheapskate)?

People sitting in bars and spending very little money. There are 2 conflicting attitudes by the management,
1 If he is not going to spend any money I wish he would leave. 2 Its better him sitting there than having an empty bar.

Re: Limits on Express / VIP service at HH Hospital?

BKK Hospital HH has several Drs who have returned after years in te US, they are for the most part very good. The Thai Drs tend to be sent down from BKK for a couple of days a week , or the odd day and come and go AND Bkk does not send their best, they are too busy in BKK

Re: Junta to launch nationwide corruption complaint center

I hope that nobody steals the money that has been allocated to set up the corruption center-- The challenge will be to prevent the anti-corruption office from being corrupt.
