Doctors, Clinics, Hospitals / Re: Where/how get Viagra?
« on: February 04, 2020, 10:04:57 PM »
Dr. Ton used to have 300 mg. aspirin last year. But for several months, Fon was getting them for me from another pharmacy, but I have no idea where. I don't know when aspirin (for headache, etc.) became a controlled substance. Is it like that in other countries?  I have used it my whole life. Tylenol doesn't do much for me.

You can get 81 mg many places. Boots, P&F at Central both have them, I think.  I get the from Dr. Ton.  When I asked him about the 300 mg yesterday, I was also buying 81 mg,  he cautioned me, seemingly concerned,  that I should only take ONE of the 81 mg per day. Strange.

Thanks Russell.  I am pretty sure the place you are describing opposite the PWA Office (Provincial Waterworks Authority) is Dr. Ton. They have a huge stock of meds and I have done business with them for years. I go in and buy a couple of months of hypertension meds and other stuff for B1,000. But if he has anything (behind the counter) he won't cough it up. Or in this case, when I asked for "viagra" maybe he was being too literal-minded to suggest similar stuffs. Could never even get a xanax out of the guy. I can't even get 300 mg aspirin from him.

I think the gel you are talking about is called "Kamagra" in Thailand. I don't know much about it or if it is 100% sildenafil (viagra) or what.

Anyone know where/how get Viagra-type meds? I was at the Ton pharmacy this morning and he didn't have it.

Do you have to go to a hospital or what? Is it available online in Thailand?

Tks, lah!

BTW, not for me. Just asking on behalf of a friend suffering from an old war injury!   roll

Visas, et al / Re: 90 Day Report Changes (?)
« on: February 03, 2020, 05:35:07 PM »
Imm was busy at 10:00 am, so waited 30 min to file my 90 Day Report. However, the actual processing took maybe 60 seconds. Seems to be a streamlined procedure where all the OA did was accept my paperwork and staple a receipt (not the usual bottom part of the TM47) in my passport.

The text on the receipt says that failure to file is now B5,000 + B200 per day past due. See attached.

I know you need an appointment at both consulates for extensions. Don't know about passport renewal, however, I assume that all embassy business of that nature requires and appointment now.

Visas, et al / 90 Day Report Filing Time Frame ?
« on: February 01, 2020, 04:15:45 PM »
Can someone please remind me about the time frame for filing the 90 Day Report

You may file one week before the due date. Correct?

Is there a grace period after the due date?

Thanks, lah!

Thanks for the workaround, True Blue!  You are indeed true blue!   smiley32


Sorry for the inconvenience, and I don't know why Chrome is so fussy. It works fine for me.   Firefox used to be great, but I had so many problems with java script errors and stuff that I no longer use it.  Opera is also less buggy than Chrome or Firefox.  It's free and you can download it here if you want to try it out => https://www.opera.com/

That's interesting, Surfer.  Thanks for the update.  I never have problems submitting URLs.  I had a looksee at your URL and it doesn't appear to be unusually long or full of code or anything. I know it is annoying, but at least we know there is a workaround.  Thanks. 


Anyone else?



Also, URL shorteners such as [size=78%]https://bitly.com/[/size] may help.  You can get an extension for your browser which allows you to make a shortened version of any URL with one click.

I just heard from a member who is getting error messages from CleanTalk (our spam protection service) when he tries to post.  Unfortunately, there is no readily available fix for this.  Has anyone else been having problems with CleanTalk lately?

Henry, I assume you know how to get a SIM card. You used to be able to buy them at 7-11 for 50 baht.  I assume they are still available in lots of places.  However, best to visit the AIS shop at Central Plaza. Is is on 3F or 4F close to Robinsons. That way you can buy your SIM or SIMs, choose a cool phone number. The nice lady will show you how to put them in the phone and answer any questions. 

But I would only recommend this plan if you have online or mobile banking and can pay bills online or from your mobile.

The Galaxy A70 sounds like a sweet deal, Frank.  Henry, I would snatch that one up before it goes away!

Lazada => http://bit.ly/37sR0uP

If that deal disappears, my suggestion for the Galaxy S8 is still a good option.
