Re: Red Bull exec's kid arrested for fatal running over of cop

The person has NOT been arrested and the Title is very misleading.

Re: TOT Internet Issues - Is it only me?

Not on the same IP but I use 3BBs Fibre Optic ( Cost BHT 1,200pm ) in Hua Hin and just did a speed test of 136mb download and 55mb upload. I have had it since late 2015 and not a single breakdown!

So how is everyone going as it is near to the end of the season. It looks like Chelsea and Spurs will be in the top 4 after the two results in the last 7 days.

Re: Immigration asking for more info from foreigners

Re: GBP vs THB

The rate you receive at the ATM and when the Thai bank converts your FX into your bank a/c is the TT Buying Rate - I use Kasikorn and it changes throughout the day, but is always at that rate which is reported on their screen.

Re: GBP vs THB

Your prediction was until 2020 - many will not be around then> There is no doubt IMO that the BoE will increase interest rates this year. Do you agree and if not what will they do with the inflation problem? You seem to be the expert - were you in FS or what?

Re: GBP vs THB

Sterling has already appreciated against the dollar, and there is little doubt that BoE will have to increase rates. FX markets generally take a forward view, and this has started.

Re: GBP vs THB

My Financial Advisors are saying that £ to US$ is expected to improve to 1.40 next year - the THB seems to move with the dollar and so 2018 will hopefully be better for those on a Fixed Pension

Re: Golf Rules - Questions and Answers

I think a lost ball should be a d...
