fceligoj:  Where are the Mahachai stores?  I'd like to try those ribs.  We normally buy ribs at Tescos, but they are expensive.  TS

Does anyone know where to buy a vehicle entertainment/navigation system?  We need an MP3 player with speakers, as well as GPS.  We went to Marvins next to Central Plaza, but they had a very limited selection that was extremely expensive.

Where to find . . . / Re: Avocados: Where to buy in Khon Kaen ???

Rex:  Macro often sells decent avocados which are locally grown, and extremely cheap.  Tescos used to sell imported avocados which were quite expensive, but very good.  I doubt they have them anymore.  Since Tescos downsized at both branches, we find it very disappointing to shop there.  A lot of food products that we used to buy have been discontinued.  If a Villa Market ever opens in Khonkaen, I'd burn my Tescos card for sure.

@Liriano: Yes, Promboon school will need another native English speaker next year.   This is their first Prathom level English Program and, this year, they only have P1 students.  So, they will need an additional NES teacher each year for the next five years (i.e. for grades P2-6)  -Cheers, TS

fceligoj:  The name of the company is Mittare.  As I recall, everything at the insured property is covered for damage, loss (including theft), and liability (so that would include privacy walls and other outside structures).  Our annual premium is extremely cheap and it gives us great peace of mind.

Mittare is a great company.  They just paid 16K baht to a customer whose 3-year-old TV was destroyed by an electrical surge during a thunderstorm.  check out this story from today:

[/size] If you have any other questions, please call my wife Gigi at 099-641-4169.  S[/font][/size]he is a licensed insurance broker, and she can also give you quotes for other types of insurance including medical, life, car and motorcycle.  [/size]She is fluent in English, and she has an excellent understanding of 'falang' needs and expectations[/size].   Cheers.

We've had our house insured since it was built eight years ago.  It's a comprehensive policy covering the structure, contents and liability.  My wife is an agent for the company.  You can call her for details:  Gigi 099-641-4169.  Cheers, TS

Did you talk to the staff at Homepro?  Not everything they have to offer is on display.  There is a brochure on a stand in the garden area which shows what they can order for you.  TS

Dealing with Thailand government / Re: Online Banking
« on: April 26, 2018, 04:16:54 PM »

You are correct in that US citizens MUST report all foreign bank accounts in their name to the IRS.  The form is called an FBAR and it can be submitted online.  Within the last few years, Thailand banking institutions have started to comply with an international agreement to report US citizens with financial accounts here.  The IRS is now heavily fining and prosecuting individuals that are failing to comply by not filing an annual FBAR along with the 1040.  If you need advice, feel free to PM me - Cheers, TS
