Re: The Bitcoin and cryptocurrency thread

Not quite the same, not many reputable stocks drop 75%, also with a reputable stock they have assets to sell, what do CCs have. Even trading houses are stopping to use them as a currency as they cannot cope with the fluctuation

Re: Blue house book in your name

Most are correct here but Norseman must have misunderstood somewhere along the line. The blue book is proof of address for a Thai and as such can be used for the purchase of a mc or car. The yellow book is proof of address for a non-Thai and can be used for the purchase of a mc or car. A non-Thai w...

Re: Possible land purchase 2.5km outside HH centre. Planning to build houses. Advice please.

Remember one other very important aspect. You only have the right to live here one year at a time, who knows what ting tong law may be passed in the future. Sadly Thai ladies no matter how nice have a massive desire to own property and they don't care that you pay for it all. If you wish you can PM ...

Re: Renewing car registration in Prachuap Khiri Khan city

Just go back to who you did your insurance with give them your blue book 650 Baht I believe and it is done in a few days. You do not need to go yourself, it just isn't worth the hassle. Next time insurance and registration from your broker at the same time

In the end it does not matter to foreigners, especially to me, we have no rights here and are allowed to stay for up to one year at a time.

Re: Elections delayed again, PM denies involvement

Last night I was out and spoke about this with a number of Thais I know, including bar staff/owners, none of them seemed interested at all if it was delayed or never happened.

Re: Elections delayed again, PM denies involvement

Re: Elections delayed again, PM denies involvement

He can deny all he wants, but most don't believe him anymore. No wonder his personal approval rating is down to nearly 35% and diving. Slowly and almost imperceptibly, a mood shift is talking place and protests are increasing. The saga of Prawit's watches and obvious double standards don't help, bu...
