  1. It didn't turn out well, now celebrated on my seawall if at all.
  2. Can confirm this at the Areca. The 2cd girl stayed in the bathroom,waste of 500 baht. I booked a beach road room on Agoda for NYE years ago. It wasn't until i showed up found they charge 500 for the first guest.
  3. AH Teelack i forgot about Marijuana. I smoke and sold in college but now find it noxious. Cigarette smoke is well regulated. Point taken.
  4. Teelack, I'm a former 3 pack a day but not an Evangelist when it comes to smokers next to me. I have to deal with it to catch the bird on the pole and i do. I won't consider spending money in restaurant that allows smoking and wasn't aware they still existed. America went from smoking in hospitals, grocery stores and restaurants to nowhere, not even on the outside grounds and this happened quickly. Though i will agree or perhaps disagree, no matter the aircon or separation if you stay for 2 drinks your clothes reek of smoke. Keep letting them know why you leave Teelack. Im an activist agains
  5. Oh it gets worse. I love strawberries but no luck growing them here. I was searching for a solution and a fellow who had his septic tank pumped asked the driver where the waste goes. Said he goes up north and spreads the raw waste on strawberry farms for fertilizer. More incentive for me to try to raise them in KK when im settled.
  6. My Gf and the agent have been doing it, haven’t been to immigration for years. But with the move upcountry I’ll try the online 90 day report. Do I need to buy a printer?
  7. Being a septic I know my shit and have dipped my stick in some dodgy girls here. Back home I owned a house and the family home had tanks but we also had drainage fields which I didn’t see them install here. Just a large black tank. As I remember it was about 1-2 years between pumping so I’ll give it a year and see what goes. Thanks
  8. Veering way off topic and I’ll indeed get my coat, how often should I have that tank pumped?
  9. Sad Rhino, thats just violence . I was in Issan and they were going at it with vigor. But if a motorcycle extended their arm palm down they were not doused. More often the M/C drivers would slow and allow water to be poured. Songkran really means something to the Thais i think.
  10. Exactly my position. To be specific the 800k would cost an additional 4,000 usd in taxes one time as well as the loss of investment income, maybe 2000 usd a year if i guess right. Admittedly i sometimes need to go to Wise but personal choices in women an alcohol.
  11. It’s really shit that everyone on this thread legally qualifies for a visa but we use agents. As Jacko said the agents don’t want to do the income method. The US and UK Embassies are useless. My friend in Bangkok charges upwards to 80k for a visa but those boys are not expats, Perhaps not eligible and I fear may someday bite us. He is offering me a Permanent Resident option but the cost is high. For me when I move to Khon Kaen I may try to go through the hoops for the 65,000 method myself. I’m not putting 80k here though I respect not everyone has a verified US or UK pension.
  12. Good to know, thanks hyku, you mean in front of Dusit? My knees are toast now so not a lot of walking anymore. Am checking with Bumrungrad to see if there’s a solution. But I do Kayak a lot and will head south and take a look. Target rich environment of Toplessness along this stretch of North Beach.
  13. Our ice truck comes down the street every morning. I thought I’ll just buy an ice maker . Looking into it they are complex, prone to needing repairs and will get dirty and difficult to clean. Sometimes the simplest things are best. And the ice guy is nice, stopping to talk. I’m still a bit of farang oddity here .
  14. The family home in Annapolis is paying 3400 baht equivalent/month for internet and TV with less tv than i get here with IPTV.
