If you pick one that's a bright canary yellow, you can stand at the back of the crowd and wait patiently.
I have a canary yellow case and somebody took it by mistake at Birmingham 6 months ago !

Re: Visa Agents in Hua Hin?

I too need visa help.

I actually need to fly to Hong Kong (from BKK) and visit Shenzen (China) for 3 hours.

A lot of hassle I know but does anybody know a company that can help me with this

Regards

Re: VISA for CHINA

^ As for tourist visas, you are far better going through an agent. Yes, you pay over the odds, but there is a guy in HK who has done wonders for myself and others in the past with regard to visas. All legal and above board, he simply has his contacts to make things a little faster and easier. :chee...

Re: Investment Rates

I am noting those 2 down CamelJockey, thanks for the tips. (hehe, I am probably profiting more from this thread than the poor OP).
Why the "poor" OP I

But I think you are mistaken about getting more out of the tips. I think the ONLY winner here is your "poor" gf. (He he !)

RULE 1.The greater the expected return the greater the risk.

I aim at 2% for inflation And 4-5% withdrawal. So i look for 6-7% net and that is achievable with a low risk bond/equities 50/50 split.
What do you think ahandpatsy.??
I think your numbers are pretty much spot on Oakdale

Re: Investment Rates

Because I want to prove you wrong. Its poor advice, its high risk, it might work but the downsides are horrendous. Somebody just might listen to you and lose a lot of their pensions. It was you that has come on here bragging about returns that are unsustainable over 5-10 years, a gold price (why so...

or the beach bar at Marrakesh. Both do 2 for 1 on cocktails with happy hours around sunset.

if you're looking fro something special, the Centara imo is a great bet, I'm sure your partner would love it.

Cocktail bars

Hello all

I wish to take my young lady for a special birthday cocktail.

I know of the Sky Bar at Hilton and East on 94 but somewhere different would be nice.

Any ideas chaps

Thanks
