Thank you Handdrummer, appreciated. Do you recall the approximate cost?

Resizing white gold ring

Hi, can anyone suggest or recommend a jeweller who can resize (in this case reduce) a white gold ring? Thanks.

Re: Thailand 'least miserable' country on Earth

I'm glad to read that Thailand appears as the least miserable country, but perhaps worth noting that this outcome is based on a set of factors deemed by the organisers to be representative of miserableness/happiness. Whether those factors are clear indicators of peoples' overall miserableness is dif...

Commissions received. New forms no longer needed.
Yes, you're most probably right. It's rather like the water treatment system and piping network that was installed in our locality near Cha-am two years ago, and has not been put use. No doubt it too has served its purpose well.

Re: Govt wants foreigner database to be ready in six months

This TM6 form is that which has recently been redesigned, with added information such as the ancitipated number of days' stay, the visitor's telephone number and e-mail address. It seems strange that there was this move to collect additional information and now the form is to be withdrawn from use.

Re: Bangkok Hospital: hope you have health insurance or plenty of cash

Although it might sound unfair to be critical, given the many Thai doctors who are excellent, I nevertheless have experienced a lack of good standards and procedures under Thai medical care, all of which have been in the expensive internationally accredited hospitals. At Bumrungrad hospital Sukhumvi...

Re: Pest control company

Out of interest, does Protex Pestcontrol Co. force you to pay for a one-year contract? I can't remember the name of the company I used some years ago but the 1-year contract that I ended up paying for was unnecessary, as it only took one visit to control the ant problem. The staff then sprayed almos...

Re: Annual Tessaban land tax

I beleive that they are asking for the ID of the Thai person that owns the land. Why else would they want it? Yes, I think you're probably correct Nereus. It seems to be getting more restrictive and authoritarian as time passes. It looks like I need to engage a lawyer to help, just to resolve this ...

Re: Annual Tessaban land tax

Thanks again. On the ID requirement, can it be anyone who goes along to pay and presents their ID? Can a foreigner go with his or her passport and do it?

Re: Annual Tessaban land tax

Thanks for the clarification, hhinner. Are you able to confirm if you believe those three items are obligatory, because a person who has read it for me, has claimed it says "for new payers only", to provide those three things. In past years, it always had 40 baht handwritten next to the tick mark, b...

Re: Annual Tessaban land tax

Yes, that's the thread I was reading. It doesn't sound like the same type of tax though. The tessabarn here has never requested payment of earlier years either, unlike the comments in the thread. The first invoice I ever received was in December 2012, which I paid in the January and again every year...

Re: Annual Tessaban land tax

Thanks Nereus, I was reading your past discussion on the tax issue, although it seemed that was a different type of tax in your discussion. Anyway, the document isn't much of a letter really, yes, more of a note stapled into the form of an envelope. I have copies of the past several years' and the c...
