Doctors, Clinics, Hospitals / Re: Urologist in KK
« on: February 06, 2016, 11:40:56 AM »
I picked up a bladder infection last year.  I went to Rajapreut Hospital (opposite Central) and was very happy with my treatment.  Ultrascan, urine test, diagnosed promptly and given specific antibiotics.  Problem cleared up and has not reoccurred.

Food, Dining, Restaurants / Korean Restaurant
« on: January 16, 2016, 07:21:17 PM »
At lunch time today my wife, two daughters and I went to a Korean restaurant.  And very good it was too.  There was a table full of food when our orders came, plus dipping sauces etc.  and we all enjoyed every bit of it.  The total price for four of us eating well was a shade under 1300 baht.  The service was good, friendly and efficient. 

Two tiny tiny drawbacks, first  it's on such a busy road that parking is a bit difficult, but that does not detract from the restaurant at all.  Second, most of the menu is in Thai and Korean only, not unreasonable but a little more English would help.

Directions:  Drive down Nah Muang Road passing the Number One Bar on your right.  Just after the Number One Bar at the next crossroads turn left and the restaurant is then on your right just round the corner.  It flies the Korean flag outside so it's easy to spot.  Google maps calls this  "Ammat Road"

I have a vague idea there used to be a German restaurant there many years ago.  But it's Korean now and good it is too.

The usual disclaimers apply, I have no connection with them etc....

Visas, et al / Re: New Overstay Rules Announced
« on: January 12, 2016, 05:14:15 PM »
The date you have to leave/renew your permission to stay/do your 90 day report are all in your passport.  If you choose to ignore that date then be it upon your own head and don't come whining here.

 We foreigners here moan, quite correctly, about immigrants to our own country ignoring the law, then seek sympathy when we do it ourselves.  Sorry. none from me, in either case.

Open discussion / Re: UK Tax Rebate.
« on: January 02, 2016, 05:52:39 PM »
First a disclaimer: I am not an expert in tax matters.  Please check the information for yourselves.

I read the notes to the claim form and it seems to me that UK state pensions are specifically excluded, ie you cannot get a tax refund on them.  Private company pensions are not mentioned at all in the treaty between Thailand and the UK and are thus excluded.  However,  government pensions  ie those given for when you worked as a government employee,  are included so you might be able to get a refund on them.  Whether that includes service pensions I just don't know.  But it does seem possible for a limited number of pensions.  Trust the government employees who negotiated the treaty to look after their own pensions.

I suspect, but don't know for a fact, that you are then suppose to inform the Thai tax authorities so they tax  your government  pension instead of the UK doing it at source.  I can't see any government letting you have a tax-free income.

And a safe one.  I live with a Km or so of Mittrapharp and it's been one ambulance siren  after another  all day so far, and there's two days to go yet.  So let's be careful out there.

Does possession of a yellow tabien baan remove the need for a TM30?

Stuff For Sale / Re: Tandem bycyle for sale

Funnily enough, the bike does look similar to this but with a  child's seat behind.  But you must provide your own riders!

Stuff For Sale / Tandem bycyle for sale
« on: December 14, 2015, 06:14:19 PM »
First a disclaimer.  The tandem isn't mine, I have no connection with the seller except as a customer of their shop.  But a tandem is rare enough I thought I ought to bring it to your attention.

The tandem looks to me to be in good condition, it appears to have 10 gears, 2 seats and sets of pedals for peddlers and a small child's seat at the back.

The price is marked as 7,500 baht and the machine is to be found in the somtam shop on the road round the lake immediately outside the rear exit of Wat Nong Waeng, the tall pyramid shaped temple that's lit up at night.  They have fish grilling on a rack outside.  (the shop that is, not the temple)

Even if you don't buy the tandem, the som tam, grilled chicken and grilled fish from there is very good.

Discuss Shopping / Re: Terminal 21

I once suggested that the site was connected with the family of the disgraced wife of HRH The Crown Prince, but I was shouted down.  But the  work ceased on that site exactly when the princesse's family were stripped of their royal name and connections.

Open discussion / Re: www.khonkaenforum.net down again?
« on: December 11, 2015, 03:56:20 PM »
The trouble is, Rex, that people will assume the site is down again and not bother checking and drift away and thus the site dies.  And some (few) of us are not on Facebook!

Open discussion / www.khonkaenforum.net down again?
« on: December 10, 2015, 10:48:10 PM »
I have not been able to connect to http://www.khonkaenforum.net/ for some days now.
Then this evening it suddenly appeared again.  Is it me or is this a general problem?

And what about those of us who aren't on facebook either........there's no pleasing some people!

Given the traffic queues caused by the new traffic lights at that U-turn, I am surprised anybody could get up to 80kph.

Me too.  I hope they do mushy peas and mint sauce as well.
