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

I think it's already been said somewhere that a lawyer has been appointed for them and they should get Thai status within a few months.

Re: Getting dual citizenship and transfering land ownership

Foreigners may acquire Thai nationality under Section 10 of the Act through naturalization or, in the case of women married to Thai citizens, they may apply to adopt their husbands’ nationality under Section 9, if they have been legally married for 3 years (1 year if they have a child together). Th...

A Driving Apology

Anyone seeing a farang driving a Pajero at speed on Petchkasem, it was me. Apologies to other drivers especially a farang riding a red Phantom. I had a baby in the back and was rushing her to hospital. She'd stopped breathing twice so it was imperative I got there as quick as possible. I had my haza...

Re: Create a Word

I certainly didn't create it. It's a word widely used in Scottish slang MAWKIT It means dirty. But like very very very dirty. CLARTY means the same. Also Scottish slang. And I love them both and they have no equivalent that I know of in English. When I lived in Scotland many years ago, I thought th...

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

Considering the condition that the kid's were in I doubt very much if any strong sedative could have been used. The Australian Doctor works with sedatives every day, one of the reasons why he was in there. And as it was unknown at first how long it would take to get them out, how could he calculate...

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

We'll no doubt know the truth in due course. Personally, I can't imagine them being 'heavily sedated' as it would be nigh impossible to manoeuvre a lifeless body through those obstacles. I do accept that they may have been tranquilised.

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

Following this story from the beginning, I've seen countless references to the foreign divers especially the Brits. The minister of the interior stated on one TV channel that the British team is leading the rescue. The Chang Rai governor has never backed off the fact that it's mainly an internationa...

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

Already!! A US film crew has already arrived at the foothills of the Tham Luang mountain cave system in Chiang Rai province as one of the world’s most daring rescue operations enters its third day. Divers are expected to today attempt to bring 25-year-old coach Ekkapol “Aek” Chantawong and the remai...

Re: Nescafe

I'd forgotten about that. I tasted that in a cafe some time ago and bought some. It was ground coffee rather than instant and I found the caramel content gave it a distinct flavour. At the time I'm pretty sure I bought it in Tesco. However, as they appear to do an instant coffee, I'd be very interes...

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

Sorry. You're quite correct. But the objective (getting the boys and their coach out) was successfully achieved.

Re: Improve Wi-Fi Speed

Speaking very simplistically, surely you can't improve on the speed delivered by your isp. It does often depend on what equipment you're using and can be improved by a better router, re-positioning your router, fine tuning the settings etc. But it doesn't seem logical that you can improve the speed ...

Re: Certified Translations

It's important to be aware of whether a 'certified translation' is needed or a 'notarised' one. Both are different. It depends upon the requirements of the 'requester'. Srirada can do certified translations at a reasonable price whereas to be notarised requires a registered notary which many lawyers...
