Re: Zoom Lenses for Mobile Phones

The inherent problem with phones and basic point and shoot cameras is the shutter delay, shaky hands, and resultant blurred images (quality also affected by low ISO settings on phones with cheaper cameras in them). This sort of lens will only exacerbate that, unless you want to carry a tripod around...

Re: 30 day visa exemption stamp clampdown at airport

I thought the free tourist visas were only available to certain countries.

My guess is that they'll completely scrap the 30 day exemption stamp and make everyone get visas, that way there is more paperwork and information for every visitor.

30 day visa exemption stamp clampdown at airport

A friend who was staying on a 30 day stamp returned yesterday after a short trip to KL. He flew back in to Swampy expecting to get another 30 days as this was his first one. He was stopped at immigration and told that you now have to go to the visa on arrival section and pay for the next 30 days. Th...

Re: Thailand closes Gulf 3 months to allow marine animals to breed

What ever they ban will make no difference unless it is policed and enforced. The fishing fleets will still be out there raping the ocean regardless.

Re: Thailand closes Gulf 3 months to allow marine animals to breed

It isnt, the fishing boats are still going out there. They try this every year, but every year it gets ignored bungs are probably paid to someone to turn a blind eye.

Back at the lake the sun was again dropping to treat us to another splendid sunset and a chance to paddle out to try fishing different spots and with different lures. It was then that it dawned upon us why our (and everyone else’s) fishing efforts had been rather fruitless. The locals had netted off...
