Re: Five scuba students die as boat capsizes in Chumphon

RIP :(

Life is not really held sacred (except in name only) in so many countries, not just here. The amount of money spend on safety in a lot of Western countries is huge, companies are forced by law to do it. Not sure that could ever happen here?

Re: Name calling in Thailand

BB please don't take offence I wasn't calling you in particular a nazi! I was just referring to the very vigilant roles that admins take in keeping threads on topic. Just tongue in cheek. Yes it was a jest, really. :) And 'farang'? No issue with it, as said above it's just descriptive unless said wi...

Re: Biggest Benefit to Being Expat

It'll be a few years before the pound/dollar recovers properly after the dust settles from what's going on atm in both places but it's certainly true about how good the lifestyle was back in the day here. This was one of the best things about being an expat here back then as to live a comparable li...

Re: Poorest Thais to get income support benefits

Seems a bit harsh to allocate so much of it to long distance travel?

Re: 18 year low tide in Prachuap province

And are there places along the Prachuap coast where you can view live coral just by walking out into the sea with a facemask (not swimming/snorkelling over them)? Sorry if I'm ignorant, but would like to spend a bit more time doing that sort of thing. Yes, there is a bay in Bangsaphan called Bo Tho...

Re: Pies in Hua Hin

My mistake on the geography, yes Uruguay/Argentine border.
Your other points are all trolling nonsense. And please get back to 'Pies of Hua Hin' before the thread nazis start in on you.

Re: Retirement Visa Extension

Some offices have been allowing extensions to be done up to 45 days early for a while now but I'm not sure if HH is one of them. If it makes a big difference to the OP (ie traveling), it's probably worth asking the question. Yes, yesterday the photocopy lady at HH immigration by the palace told me ...
