Re: After the cave rescue

^^ Well that was yet another Pinnochio moment at the top. Then I guess no one dared gainsay him.

Re: Shoe Repairs

My wife had him do a small shoe repair, involving stitching, two days ago. Seems OK. 30 baht.

Re: Online Ordering - a sign of the times?

I've used geekbuying.com and gearbest.com for TV boxes, tablets and phones over the last few years. I usually look to see which has what I want at the better price. Never had a problem with either. Just recently I wanted to buy a new Xiaomi phone. So checked both suppliers for the phone and had deci...

Re: Charges for installing an internet cable/service

Our soi is cabled up by most, if not all, of the locally operating ISPs. I suspect that if I wanted to change, at least one of them would offer free set up. Currently on 3BB vdsl, which is more than adequate. Could easily switch to fiber. Or go to AIS, True, CAT, TOT, HiNet.

Re: Treatment For Farangs At Hua Hin Hospital

My wife was getting her diabetes check-up at the same time as I've had mine, and they've told me my wife can have her check-up with me in the Express Clinic. I expect they told you that for the same reason as I don't use it for my wife. I'd guess your mother-in-law, like my wife gets everything for...

Re: The Digital Surgery

^ Depends on distance. If your street is already cabled up there won't be a cable charge. There may or may not be a charge for modem/router and set up. Any adverts on power poles where you live?

Re: Teatment For Farangs At Hua Hin Hospital

It's not exclusively for farangs. Anyone can use it. In Thai it's express service. You pay normal treatment cost (a bit higher for foreigners, I think) plus a 200 baht charitable donation to the hospital (receipted). It's not available on weekends and holidays. Any follow up treatment must go throug...

Re: Ink refill for.printer

I've bought quite a lot through Lazada and never had a 2 or 3 day delivery. Of course it depends what you're buying as Lazada only processes your order through to the supplier. I think the quickest I've had is around a week while a couple of orders have taken 2 or 3 weeks. Only last week I ordered ...

Re: Getting dual citizenship and transfering land ownership

I would think that would be accomplished by getting the land owner to sell the land to the Thai spouse.

Not that I like Thaksin, but that would be brilliant PR and definitely put someone's nose out of joint.

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

As good as it is that one of the boys is able to speak English is it really the case that none of the Thais in there could interpret?

Re: Getting dual citizenship and transfering land ownership

I searched the threads but could not find an answer. If it has already been covered I apologize and please direct me to the thread. If we buy a villa from a property developer or company and stay in Thailand for the 3+ years to be eligible for and get citizenship can we then get the land portion tu...

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

Well, now in the ongoing press conference (8.10pm 11th) it's been stated that the kids were conscious.
