Re: Thais rank low again at English

Yes you are quite right HHTel. Weather you are a tourist or expat, just why would anybody compare the mighty English language with the Thai-language? Weather you live in Thailand or not, it's totally up to the hosts if they want to be able to communicate with us or not. Thailand is promoting it self...

Re: The journey to a Yellow Book in Hua Hin

No, that is really NOT the case.
You have to report the 90 days as everybody else.
Happy new year to you too.

Re: Snakes in the house and garden

Yes it's a rat snake and completely harmless but Thai people will kill it and enjoy their dinner.
It will bite you, no question about that, but this is the primary target (dinner) for any King Cobra, so you better be careful when you see one.
Non toxic but a really big fighter if threaten.

Re: Buying a new laptop

Yeah, some really good information there.
Should I say MY BAD or mining a bite!
It's just as useful as a suitcase filled up with ' yes we lost the war', bit we love the combat!
Bite vs byte, is just a question about your brain size.
Or isn't it?

Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

Bite your tongue Norsemam, I am Canadian. Canadians are generally over-polite but this happens in Canada too. Eh? God bless the Canadians. Good people, very close to the North-Europeans way of life AND so much politer than the rest of the world. If it hadn't been for Toronto and the lovely Canadian...

Re: Farang Contempt for Thais?

This must be a case amongst the UK and Thailand.
I guess that the good manners only exists in Scandinavia then.
As oakdale160 is, I believe, an American, they*re not more polite there as well.

Re: ThaiThailand speed limits to be halved?

Last week I was stopped by a High Way Police officer who could speak English. He warned me that driving in 120 km pr hour wasn't in accordance with Thailand's laws, max speed limit on the motorways is 90 km pr hour so I was fined 200 Baht. It seems to me that they do enforce the laws. This happened ...

Re: Yellow book, blue book

And when you finally have received your yellow book and Thai ID card, and then move away from Pratchuap to another province, it's a piece of cake to get a new yellow book and ID card registered in your new province.
