Re: Looking for an alternative to True

BB - Surely it is possible to pay True every 3,6 or 12 months and then you would not have to go to their office? Or have I missed the point that even if you have paid in advance they still put a threat close message on your screen? I always pay, and I pay on time. However, every few months the mess...

Re: Another San Paulo story

I think we all have different stories about local medical establishments i.e.: - I've only had good service from San Paulo (not used them for 8 years). - I've numerous horror stories from Bangkok Hospital, and a couple of good ones. - Hua Hin Hospital is doing a good job for my family at the moment....

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

I'm regularly talking to several friends using HD Prime. They have become so frustrated with HD Prime, they were awaiting the outcome of my free I View trial. They too are desperate to find something useable. As I keep saying, I am delighted with my solution at the moment, it is only the monthly tra...

Re: Looking for an alternative to True

Well, I've now sent I View another hastener - they don't seem interested. If anybody has any success, and you think the service is good, please tell me how you managed it. Looks as though I'm stuck with True because they are the only viable service that can provide live streaming to my standard. Ab...

Re: British Passport renewal company in Hua Hin?

Also, doesn't matter that a passport is out of date, it's still 'renewable'. That's right, we had the opposite scenario in the UK. My wife's Thai passport was 15 years out of date (used her British passport for travel). We only bothered renewing it when returning to Thailand to live i.e. I didn't w...

Re: One tourist killed, 11 injured in speed boat explosion

What a bad way to go - burning. It's about time these twat operators were brought to book. A terrible way to go, but also a stupid way to travel to Phi Phi in my opinion. There are proper ferries, so why choose a speed boat? There's a fair bit of open sea to cross - I wouldn't trust one of those th...

Re: Missing in Hua Hin - Michael O'Brien

What doesn't read right to me is that I thought I'd read he has a wife and daughter here. To me it sounds as if other family are taking him to the States.

Re: Missing in Hua Hin - Michael O'Brien

From Surf 102FM: We can confirm today that Michael O'Brien has been found. He is being held in an immigration detention centre in Bangkok. He was picked up due to a 200+ day overstay. Sadly Mike apparently went quickly into Alzheimer's and this contributed to a series of problems, including not givi...

Re: Tetanus shot

I need an injection every 3 months for something else - hospitals (even Bangkok Hospital) aren't interested. I go to the ENT clinic on Soi 55/1. Tell them you don't need the doc, and you're usually away in 10 minutes.
