Re: 'How To' - Requirements for visa extensions etc

Yes, I am aware of the above and I was only reporting what he did. But next year I will also kill two birds with one stone.

I think Thailand is progressing nicely and will soon be promoted to a 4th World Country! :D

Re: 'How To' - Requirements for visa extensions etc

Did they actually want the 90 day reporting form as well? I would have thought that's superceded by the new visa stamp. Well, my 90 day report was due on the 12th and the visa extension renewal on the 20th. I wanted to kill two birds with one stone and I was waiting for the reply from the Embassy, ...

Re: 'How To' - Requirements for visa extensions etc

I extended my OA (retirement) visa without any hassle today, so I thought I would relay my experience here. I went alone and got there at about 10.10, a bit later than planned. I thought there were three others ahead of me in the queue, but one was just waiting for their docs to be returned. Two cou...

Re: Back in the UK after 14 years

Thought I'd replied to this already, but must have forgotten to press submit! Good to hear you're settling in okay DM, I think the UK is a great place and your experience of the NHS is that of most peoples. Only bad news is deemed newsworthy! I had a couple of years up in Sheffield and I too was sur...

Re: The Thai Cultural Shock

I think if you have been reasonably travelled before settling here, it helps. In my case, Thailand was the 6th Asian country I had visited and I had read up a lot before coming here and continued to do so even after becoming a regular visitor. But the biggest culture shock for me was my first ever v...

Re: Premier League 2017-2018

I couldn't agree more- while looking the other day I was invited to take part in a survey - I normally don't bother but was so incensed by what they have done I did and believe I I included the words " it is crap" and "go back to how it was before" - I'm not holding my breath though! Yes, I did the...

Re: Sending money

I've been using TransferWise for over a year now ( Sterling to THB). A lot cheaper and quicker than my bank and a much better rate. They tell you exactly how much to expect and the date of arrival, usually no more than 2 working days. If you don't have a Smartphone you can also transfer via your la...

Re: Another cowardly farang bashing in Hua Hin

Okay, oh righteous one, relax. No crusade at all. I started by merely pointing out you had criticised others for something you too were guilty of, that's all - and that's something I do as well.

Re: Is International Mail Taking a Long Time Getting to HH?

From my fairly limited experience, I'd say this was a Hua Hin thing, I never had any problems receiving mail in either Korat or Bangkok and as a consequence of the 'posts' I have read about problems here, I still use my other half's condo in Bkk for international mail.

Yes, I wondered how you would react to my light hearted goading, but the lesson surely is; he who casts the first stone and all that.........

Re: Another cowardly farang bashing in Hua Hin

I actually see what you mean. I did say 'Completely random violence'. I guess I was suckered in by the title of the post too. A perfect example of how it's necessary not to jump to conclusions and redzonerocker was the man who made that clear. Kudos to him/her. But I can stand by the rest of my com...
