Re: Opening a Thai bank account

I used to use Bangkok Bank in London. Unless it's changed, you couldn't open a personal account there and it could only be used as a gate to your Bangkok Bank in Thailand. I used to have a pension paid into London and it was automatically transferred to my bank in Thailand. I've not needed that faci...

Re: Human fetuses found among household garbage in Hua Hin

HHtel, I am pretty sure nowadays they use the word "viable" from about 26 weeks gestation (might even be earlier). No argument. Just pointing out the law allows termination up to 28 weeks. The article HHTel posted about the 17 yr old girl arrested for the same "crime", she took an abortion pill. Th...

Re: Human fetuses found among household garbage in Hua Hin

The law says that a pregnancy can be terminated up to 28 weeks. I'm sure I've read stories of babies being born before this and survived.

Re: Human fetuses found among household garbage in Hua Hin

Absolutely agree MDMK. I'm sure these late abortions (and from the report there was one at 8 months) are the result of 'desperation' and 'not knowing where to turn'. If the subject was discussed openly in Thai society and the government, and the options were made known publicly, then this kind of th...

We have 8 ceiling fans. The label on them is 'abc'. Bought and fitted by Big Kiang in 2005 and still going strong.

Re: Human fetuses found among household garbage in Hua Hin

Agreed Takiap. I would contradict the fact that most Thais know the law. When my stepdaughter was pregnant with her third child and struggling to cope with the two she had, I suggested a termination. My stepdaughter actually would have gone along with that but everyone in the family, including her m...

Re: The Baguette

Love Bread was formerly Baguette. Big Boy...Right at the lights if coming from HuaHin, if you reach the crossroads you've gone too far! ;) The Baguette moved from these premises in 2016. Love Bread has two shops, one in Cha-Am and the other on Petchkasem Road. I've been to neither of them but it's ...

Re: Human fetuses found among household garbage in Hua Hin

The clinic behind the Cabbages and Condoms restaurant in Bangkok (Suk. Soi 12) offers free advice and abortions to pregnant women. Sadly, it's not publicised and vulnerable women resort to using this kind of clinic. Nobody should be arrested for providing this kind of service. Can you imagine what ...

Re: Human fetuses found among household garbage in Hua Hin

Read the article properly:
the rubbish truck crew first saw the head of an unborn baby through a tear in a black garbage bag as it was being put into the compactor.

I think we're talking about their new location on Petchkasem opposite the Dusit.

Re: Opening a Thai bank account

If you need to do business outside Thailand using a debit card, stay away from bangkok bank. They do not have a visa debit card. I'm with BKK Bank and my debit card (visa) works fine in other countries. Be very careful with it at the ATM. I the machine eats it, it will be replaced with Unionpay whi...

Re: Human fetuses found among household garbage in Hua Hin

I assume you mean 6 and 8 months of pregnancy and I'm apt to agree with you on termination in the last trimester. However, the law states that a termination can be done up to 28 weeks.
That's 7 months pregnant and babies have been born and survived at less.

The last time it happened to me I just called in to AIS themselves and let them do it.
