Re: Visa extension - marriage vs retirement ?

Get the retirement visa while in home country, so much easier. Need to be 50 years old, in case you don't know.

Then meet the financials, and extend in Thailand before it expires.

Re: Buying Fresh Fish

How fresh do you want it. Makro in PKK, so assume Makro Pranburi and HH have also.

Re: Easier way to do a visa run from Hua Hin ?

Twice as long, but I'm partial to the Ranong one. There's a crap casino, if that interests you.

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

Unlike Thailand, they're simply not building them any more. All in the Philly area are hurting, due to online shopping, along with the anchor stores losing their market share to online shopping, and closing themselves. Why fight the traffic / congestion, take the time, spend the money of fuel, along...

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

Agree, US malls are crashing fast. One of the first and largest in Philly area, went for $1 dollar. They couldn't give it away. Might turn it into housing.

When in US 17 years ago, I started shopping online and avoided malls like the plague.

Re: Shingles Vaccine problem

There is a vaccine, and if in the US, a damn expensive thing it is. And not exactly a proven science either, if reading the studies, quite crap really.

Re: recognised

Screw the UK officials, why didn't you report it to the HH police..........

....UK officials issued pp and allowed him to leave, probably happy to be rid of him. Thailand's loss.

So much for background checks and why immigration should be much much tighter.

Re: New drivers must soon take 15 hours of training

Can't see it being instituted. Renewed my 5 yr, after new requirements for longer vids, testing, and more testing.

I didn't need to do any of it. Just sit through a 1 hr vid in Thai, no subtitles. 5 yr renewed.

Re: Global Warming 2

#2..... I don't believe humans contribute to warming or climate change. Especially CO2, as essential for plants,if want 'O'.

It's a natural thing. They should concentrate on the ice age that's going to follow the end of the historical warming trends.
