Re: The Beer Thread

While a can is quicker to chill the inside of a can has a layer of lacquer or some other surface covering to prevent the contents from reacting with the aluminum. Glass on the other hand has no additional coatings. Some people say they can taste the difference, I for one think, all beer is a good be...

Re: Tax Residency (bank requirements)

In Australia I have only been asked once about my Tax Residency and that was from my Stock Broker, one question, "Is Australia your country for Tax Residency?" end of story.

Re: New House without a pool?

Well, coming from Australia and having had 2 pools here, I considered it an essential, for two reasons, one was the pure pleasure, during the hot season to be able to dip into the water at any time that took my fancy. Swimming as such is not an important factor, pools here are too small, therefore, ...

Re: Where to buy 12 Volt Garden Lights in Thailand

If you don't mind buying out of China I suggest that you look at https://www.aliexpress.com. This is the retail shopping section of AliBaba, sellers sell by individual items.

Re: The Peril of Bar or Restaurant Ownership

Thank you stumorelli. I personally am not contemplating "Bar Ownership" and your scenario is pretty much as I had imagined but was wondering in general terms the costs associated. One of my favorite past-times when indulging at a venue not visited before, is to review the whole scene and decide what...

Re: The Peril of Bar or Restaurant Ownership

So what does it cost to purchase the lease of a bar, monthly rent and other expenses regarding staff and services? What kind of returns per month can be expected with a few farang regulars?

A CR2025 is a very standard battery for desk top computers along with CR2032, they keep the clock functioning when the PC is powered down, they are found on the motherboard. You should be able to get a quality battery from any PC repairer or accessory shop, rather than a cheap generic in bargain sho...

In Australia we have had the chip cards for many years, signature verification has not been used for almost as long. Approximately 2 years ago "Tap and Go" was introduced where all that was required for purchases up to A$100 was to wave your card over the top of the shop terminal, over A$100 then th...
