Thanks Kajornsak but Lazada and Kaidee do not have what we want and most of the other massage bed places we have dealt with are located down in the Bangkok, Chon Buri area. We were look to see if someone who lives in the Northeast had seen any beds suitable for oil massage in their local area buy and sells. There has been a couple listed in the Khon Kaen Buy and Sell on Facebook but they had already been sold.

Has anybody happened to see any massage tables for sale around the Khon Kaen, Udon Thani, Korat, Nong Bua Lamphu, Nong Khai areas? At the moment I am searching for a metal framed bed which is about 175cm x 90cm and about 75cm high which is padded on the top for use as a Thai Oil massage table. All information is much appreciated

It is quite easy Rex, A person could have an income from overseas which he could have 400,000 deposited into his Thai bank account and still have plenty of money to live on. He could work offshore for 6 months and live here with his Thai wife for 6 months. Even being retired I had a good payout when I finished work and I have my 400,000 permanently in the bank and I live on my pension with no problems. Remember we are talking MARRIAGE extensions not retirement

Yes, Henry, we are like old cars and we do have a few quirks that only we know about and know how to operate. Have a Happy New Year

One other thing that I would suggest Henry is to also buy an external drive and keep all your files backed up on it so that if anything does happen with your laptop then you will not lose any of your files and folders and it is just simply copy all your files and folders from the external drive to your laptop

Henry, first off I have 2 laptops here with me, one is a Compaq Preserio which had Windows 7 on it but it was upgraded to Windows 10 back in Australia when Windows 10 was first released as an update and it is about 10 years old and the other is a HP 250 with Windows 10 and it is about 6 years old. Both of these laptops were bought in Australia before I moved to Thailand over 5 years ago, The only problem that I have had with both these laptops has been with the internet connection which was not actually the laptop but the service provider problem, so before you go racing off and buying a new laptop I would suggest that you go to a service centre and have your laptop looked at.
As for your windows disc, I am not sure about that as I cannot remember how many computers you can use that disc and license for. I do not know about here in Thailand but in Australia when I did the upgrade to windows 10 I think it was a license for 2 computers but I am not sure.
Good luck, Henry.

Rex, I was going home yesterday and I went past a small sign shop near King Kong restaurant in Ban Pet and they were cutting a sheet of styrofoam to make pictures and letters on signs. Maybe if you are going past any sign making shop you could call in and ask them if they have it for sale or maybe they will tell you where you can get it from. Remember you are in Thailand and it is called "styrofoam" and not "polyboard". If I get a chance I will stop and ask at the shop where I saw them working with it.

But, retfed50 going back to Nong Khai, that would not be planning in advance that would be backward planning

LungBing, is that before or after the bus station, Immigration or the tram system become extinct?

The following Songtaews are listed as going to bus station 3: 3,4,6,8,10,11,12 and 23 plus the Air-Conbitioned bus that does a run around Khon Kaen including the airport. I personally think that you must ask the driver because I believe that some of these runs have various destinations and on some trips some of these songtaews may not go to the bus station

Sorry Stevve, but when you go to the Australian Embassy and get a Statutory Declaration witnessed you are actually in Australia and that Statutory Declaration is signed and witnessed on Australian territory. You can seek refuge in the Australian embassy and Thailand cannot enter the embassy and remove you because it is legally part of Australia. This is why America has not been able to arrest Assange over the wikileaks because every embassy all over the world is a territory of their own country and come under their own countries laws.

Frank, this notice has been on the Immigration office door for a week now and they are not moving until 29 January next year, that is another 9 weeks before they move. so that is 10 weeks notice (2.5 months). How much more notice do you want?Jimmy, it is great for those that live out of town that continually complain about driving into the immigration office at its current location, they will now be able to hop on a bus and be dropped off right at the door, as for Ban Pet it has never been a problem just hop on the ring road and come in from the northern end of town. I think people are just getting lazy and want everything right at their feet or they just want to complain about everything that happens. A lot of people complain about the online 90 day reporting not working but instead of going in person to do your 90 day reports to make sure that it is done for 1 day every 3 months they would prefer just to sit at home and complain

Henry, those other papers that you signed that you have never had before are that you have read and understand the laws and penalties in regard to overstay and working without a work permit. You have signed those papers so now if you are caught in breach of those laws you cannot claim that you did not know about them. They have your signature on those documents now. I signed them 2 weeks ago but they were explained to me

This is mainly information for the Australians on here. Since all this business about the Statutory Declarations has happened and many people have said that the Australian Embassy MUST witness you sign the Stat Dec, I decided to contact the Australian Attorney General about it and I sent an email to him on the 3rd November [size=0pt]Sent:[/size][size=0pt] Saturday, 3 November 2018 5:51 PM
 To: Statutory Declarations
 Subject: Witnessing of signature
Can the only notoriety in the overseas country refuse to witness my signature on a Commonwealth of Australia Statutory Declaration?
I received an answer today that will clear up any misconception as to the legality of the Embassy NOT witnessing your signature on a Stat Dec.

Dear Mr 
 Thank you for your enquiry of 3 November 2018 to the statutory declarations mailbox about whether a foreign notary can refuse to witness a statutory declaration. The Attorney-Generalís Department can provide general information, but not legal advice, about Commonwealth statutory declarations. This information can also be found on our website: [/color]
A notary (also known as a notary public or public notary) takes oaths, signs and witnesses documents for use within Australia. A notary also performs similar functions in respect of international documents. If you are outside Australia, a notary who has been appointed in Australia under their local state or territory legislation, or a notary who has been appointed overseas, exercising his or her functions at that place, is able to witness a Commonwealth statutory declaration.
The Statutory Declarations Act 1959 and the Statutory Declarations Regulations 2018 do not obligate authorised witnesses, including notaries, to witness statutory declarations.
I hope this information is of assistance.
