Re: Wanted: Wetsuit

I got a 3mm large............used maybe 3 times at the most, if that, as didn't like, too damn hot unless cold water diving, which I only did once. In Udon Thani, will be cruising by HH next month on the 11 or 12th. Have't got a clue on price. Out the door at the moment, give some thought when I com...

Re: Bluport wine/beer bar - drinks + 10pct service + 7pct VAT on top.

Places that apply SC, I will usually not visit, unless highly recommended for food, AND .... CS, as a 10 % tip is high, except in the USA, where tipping is part of the salary, based on receiving such, and 15 % is standard. Though 20 % is so much easier to calculate, and since working in the restaura...

Re: Setting a property sales price

Yes, cookie cutter houses in developments are a hard sell, especially as many pay toO much going in. Not taking a loss is hard enough, without expecting and ROI.

Simply ask first if include, and not all residents in the HH area are the 'more experienced in life', mostly just the expats............

Re: Farang buying a house with a Thai lady

I know 2 people who went through the court system for divorce and assets settlement, and it was about a 50 / 50 split, (Equity / value of possessions) as lined out in Thai law. Pretty much the same as most western countries. When purchasing land, it is hers / his, Thai national owned. The rest is pe...

Re: Do you use your phone while driving.

Not in my car, wife and kid talk to my constantly. Talking while driving isn't much of a challenge. Even talk to the dog sitting my lap, now that could actually be an issue, but my 'risk management team' assures me, it's an acceptable risk. After my teen years, 40+ of driving have been fairly oops f...

Re: Thai Partner wanting to buy property in thailand

Actually, the only question you should be asking is: Do YOU want to buy her family a house to live it, because that is the reality of it all. Simple. Personally, I would stay clear of that one, and continue on as things are, simply enjoy living together in OZ. The family got along fine before you, a...

Re: Tougher test for licences

Nothing instituted as of yet, as I just renewed my 5 yr license, in Udon Thani today, last time to do here, and actually was 2 weeks after it expired......oops. No mention or signs stating any future requirements. Watched the hour long driving vid, first time ever that was required, and not extra an...

Re: Drones/Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

Not banned, and new regulations went into effect a while back. Thankfully, far from their usual knee jerk reaction and proposed total ban. Actual mirrors USA regulations. 9 kms from airport, and 90 meter ceiling. Fly LOS (line of sight), during daytime, so many meters from people and buildings, whic...

Re: Setting a property sales price

Land seems to be a premium now of days. Which help raise resale price of our house nicely. Sits on 2 rai, which we bought for 240k baht, and now worth I mill in 6 yrs time. Contracted build price was about 10k m² for what I consider 'living space', enclosed walled. Thais consider it anything under r...

Re: Setting a property sales price

You mean to say, agents don't have exclusive contracts for their % if sold, and people list with multiple agents ? Not doubting what you say, but that makes no sense at all. Must be different in HH, as in Udon Thani, everything is done on exclusive contract, no matter where the lead comes from, the ...
