Re: New law calls halt to landlords cranking up bills

The law only applies to landlords with 5 or more apartments.

Re: Which car would you feel safest in Thailand

They used to say "If you can't drive, get a Volvo". They've always had the emphasis on safety. Let's face it, they don't have anything else to shout about.

Re: Shark Attack - Had Sai Noi

The attack was confirmed by deputy governor of Prajuab Khiri Khan province Although I'll keep an open mind, I think there's some doubt whether this was indeed a shark bite. Didn't need treatment! I think the first thing I'd do is at least get the anti-biotics. Maybe this was a 'sucking shark'! Afte...

That's assuming that kids take onboard anything learnt at school.

Re: Fine hike call for ambulance blockers

Making the fines more realistic is a step in the right direction. They should do the same with other traffic offences then there may be some progress. Equivalent to blocking an emergency vehicle (I think) are the idiots who use the hard shoulder in traffic jams. They are meant to allow access for em...

A pretty big one off Soi 94 too. 3 terrified dogs at Baan Big Boy. Rain drops so big, I was convinced they had to be hailstones.
And here in 112 not enough rain to wet the drive. Amazing how localised these storms can be.
BB posted that 10 days ago. :)
Ooops!

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration office at Bluport

Did a 90 day and bought a re-entry permit at Bluport today. Apart from a photocopy of my passport (for re-entry), no other paperwork was required. The photos I had were redundant as they have a camera at the desk. In and out in under 15 mins. It was nice to see the staff dressed in Thai costume. Muc...

Re: Police protection racket?

I have twice in the past informed the police that my house will be empty for a week/10 days. They have given me a form of columns which the police will sign with the time at regular intervals. I was to put the form in my post box. Haven't done it for a while but the form was duly signed every few ho...

Re: House market in Hua Hin

'Party houses' are illegal and should be reported to the police. They may take no notice at first but you need to pester them. There has been some success in Hua Hin but it is an uphill struggle.

Re: Protection racket?

Should have got their name/number and reported them to the police station. Better still have the local police station number in your phone and call them while they are there. I've had similar and started to make the call. "Who you call?"...."Just checking with your boss" I replied. Suddenly they had...

Re: Electrical Problems after Storms

I can't answer your question but just a correction. The fourth wire is neutral. Earth wires (ground) are made locally (on site). Most modern houses have an earth rod of a couple of metres that provides earth to the rest of the house.

Agreed, BB.

As an aside, I love that poster/sign from Cha-Am that ginja showed. Got to be a winner!
