Re: Villa Market Selling on Lazada
by kkbill | Today at 12:51:55 PM
In my experience being a frequent Lazada shopper the "Discounts" posted are all bogus. The "sale" price -which always  says  valid only on the date you are viewing it is also bogus. The 'sale price' is in fact the shelf price you'd pay in a store if you could find the item. The main advantages of Lazada are availability of the product you are looking f...

Thanks for the welcome. It's SteveSadly it'll be a long time until I have to worry about visas etc. Still a very long way off retirement for us.  As for the tourist visa side, we never come for more than 3 weeks as we're restricted by how long we take out some out of school. They're really strict on that over here nowWe were over for Songkran this year but won't ...
Auto Keys with Chips
by fceligoj | August 21, 2019, 06:00:55 PM
My wife wanted to get a 2nd key for a used car (Toyota Altis) we bought for her sons (they are paying us back so much each month.)  These keys have a chip in them so it is not just your run of the mill key cutting type.  The first place to which she went was the key shop in the BigC parking garage.  He wanted 1,600 baht.  She felt too much, so she went to the Toyota dealer on M...
Re: Renewal of Retirement extension / 90 day Report

I suspect that its not the sum of 100 baht that's important but a transaction  of some sort, withdrawal or deposit, that causes the bank book to be updated that day to reflect the transaction....

Another good tail that I forgot to mention.  The last time I requested a transfer of funds through TransferWise, I called the US number to make sure they would manually process the transfer through BBL.I got a fast talker on the other end of the line with a distinct "non-English as my first language" accent.  I had to ask him repeatedly to "say again."  So I sent...

Russell, I think Rex will be taking a taxi or a tuk-tuk to go there.  Really all he had to do is look for the signs on Bldg #2....

Re: Bangkok Immigration Office on Submitting Form TM30

Maybe Frank, if they had of enforced the laws properly 15, 20 years ago there may not have been any need for the TM30. You mentioned "Big Joke" the wife saw something on the Thai news and she tried to show me but I do not know exactly what it was about but it appears that "Big Joke" was offered another position By Puyat but he turned it down, but the interesting thing was that ...

Re: WINDOW 10 - Major Update
by russell17au | August 21, 2019, 02:40:55 PM
I did the Major Update Saturday and I have had nothing but trouble with my files and I cannot open my photos. Microsoft has changed my settings so that when I try to open a photo it comes up "this media is write protected" and I just cannot open an individual photo It only opens in the other apps, so I have had to change all my default settings. The setting that I had for my photos was &...
