Re: Retirement extension Foreign Currency Account ?

I'm not sure about that type of account. Hopefully, others can confirm or not. The main criterion will be whether you can access your funds immediately. Imm want to see that. So, for instance, various types of long term savings accounts that require you to give notice of any withdrawals are not acce...

You're knackered then. Expect to be stopped and severely fined for any and every minor transgression from now on :shock:

Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

I walked the beach from Khao Takiap to the center of town this afternoon and it was the least number of tourists I've seen in years, there were more old Thai ladies looking for shellfish. Couldn't agree more. I've lately been doing that walk in the mornings and the beach is deserted as are the sun ...

Think I've been in there as well, B B, but many years ago when it was being run by a young westerner (can't remember what nationality).
It was an oasis in the middle of HH. An old wooden place with a largish courtyard that contained a bar.
Must be the same place.

Re: Problems with gmail?

I've been following the advice on copy/pasting through word and things are working OK. But, again this morning, another mail couldn't be sent. I got a server error message. This type of situation is only happening with mails back to my UK property agents and I'm wondering whether it might have somet...

Re: OA Visa - 3 questions

If you've got a multi-entry OA visa and you re-enter Thailand before the expiry date of the visa, you'll be given another year's permission to stay. Once the visa's validity finishes that is no longer an option but as long as you get re-entry permits, your permission to stay will stay alive if you l...

Re: Thailand floods of 2017

I suppose that if had been drought time, it also would have been "historic".
In other words, "nothing to do with me, not my fault".

Re: Problems with gmail?

Good suggestions. Thanks. I don't like the sound of that situation where mails that have been sent to me go missing. I have no control over that but to the best of my knowledge nothing has gone missing that way - yet. And yes, normally, gmail will save pretty much every letter that I write but quite...

Problems with gmail?

Just over this past week, I've been trying to send some emails back to the UK. They're important and took a long time to compose. However, 3 of the 4 didn't get sent. OK, I can try 30 minutes later and they go through but that assumes that gmail saved the damn things or else I've got to start all ov...

Re: IKTS 2016/2017

Thanks for the congratulations. It was a hard fought race. Caller, if I remember correctly, I won the first year the forum did the league. I might have had a second at some point (probably behind you) and the rest of the time my performances have been mediocre to say the least. Bring it on next seas...

Re: Hua Hin International Jazz Festival 2017

Don't know about the tides in June. Is that when the festival is normally on? I walk the beach regularly in the mornings and the tide should be well out then. I'm not sure about night time though. I have been to past festivals and would agree that the strip of beach is useless for that kind of event...
