Re: Police corruption, drug tested in Hua Hin

Stopped and tested (urine and breathaliser) on the cut through from 94-102 last night. A notorious spot for it and I usually don't go that way to avoid the hassle, but wasn't thinking. They did a rudimentary body and car search (had I had anything to hide they never would have found it, they didn't ...

Re: Police corruption, drug tested in Hua Hin

I have been in HH about 6 years and never had or heard of this happening, not saying it doesn't. Have heard of it more in BKK. Pretty surprised it happened to you where it did to be honest.

Re: Police corruption, drug tested in Hua Hin

You could try speaking to Ex-Pat Pro law firm on the main road near the fly-over.
Were these 'regular BIB' or the (even) more sinister variety?

Re: Bitcoin Mining

Even if Bitcoin mining is still possible, you would want to wait until after August 1st before considering it.
I think now you can only mine smaller Alt-coins, and even then you need a proper rig with numerous powerful GPU's, you can't just do it on a regular computer anymore and make it worthwhile.

Re: Need a Driving School for Wife

I was recommended one for the Mrs some time ago, and she seemed good. Wife passed practical on 2nd test after her lessons and had never driven previously (or since, unfortunately). She passed the theory with 100% score first time, but not sure if that was blind luck or from the lessons. I don't know...

Re: Thai bank account on a tourist visa... possible?

Can now only do at Bangkok Bank with a Thai guarantor, who must be someone with a decent job and be there with you. Have done it for 2 clients recently, this was the only way. Forget Kasikorn, especially MV branch which now has horrendous customer service.

Re: New apartments to the monkey mountain beach?

I was looking down at this construction site from the nearby Jamjuree condo - there is certainly something going on there, and the person who lived in the unit I was in said it was a high end resort being built. It didn't look like it could be as big as the artist impressions on the link, though ha...
