  1. I did my Non-Immigrant 'O' 90 day reporting in Chiang Khan on Monday and was told that my next 90 day report must be in Chonburi as that's where my Visa was issued.
  2. Career on the rocks with no opportunity to play regularly? Over 30 and finding it difficult to find employment? Criminal record deterring clubs from signing you? Contact : Bung Management Limited colin@givemeabung.com Here at Colin W****r Bung Management (CWBM), we can tailor a deal especially for you. We specialise in negotiating deals that work for both you and us. We have access to funding from high net worth individuals that don't know the first thing about football and we have been successfully operating schemes to redistribute some of their wealth between us for many years. You get a higher guaranteed income for up to two years initially and we receive gifts from you in return. What are the tax implicitaions? All payments to CWBM are made as gifts, so there is no initial tax liability on either party. If you were to die within 7 years of making the gift, there may be an inheritance tax liability upon your estate, but as a money grabbing selfish bastard, you will already be used to having someone else cleaning up your shit. Is this a contractual arrangement? Gifts cannot be contractual, so there'll be no paperwork. How to make a gift? All gifts to be made in used UK banknotes stuffed in a brown paper bag on the first Monday after the club makes their payment to you. You will be notified of your drop off point at the start of the arrangement. If I default on making the gift? If you choose not to continue with the agreement, you'll not play football; your income will be seriously reduced and there will be no playing contract renewal. What if CWBM is no longer represented at the club I join? If CWBM stops being represented at your club, then as soon as is practically possible, CWBM will contact you to discuss a transfer to another participating club with an enhanced package. Can I become a CWBM client if I'm at a participating club, but I'm not that good a footballer? Of course. We have developed specialist plans for players at clubs that become participating members. We can tailor one-off schemes to provide you with a lump sum sign on fee for a new club or alternatively arrange for lucrative loan spells at clubs that have affiliations with CWBM. Does CWBM provide long term plans? Yes, here at CWBM, we have a number of players who have made appearances for several of our participating clubs long after their useful playing days. Is this defrauding the club? This has not been determined in the courts, but our legal team believe that whilst it may be considered unethical, it's not actually illegal. Any other benefits? We at CWBM believe that our clients should all be "one big happy family". We host several social events for all our clients. These regularly include a weeks holiday in Cornwall prior to the start of the season and a barbeque at the home of our CEO. We also manage to get other 'freebies' paid for by one of the high net worth individuals that we deal with. Are there any other requirements upon the client? i.) During your time as a CWBM client, you will always refer to the CEO as 'The Gaffer' and at any press conferences refer to him as 'a great bloke that really belives in me'. ii.) You will keep your trap shut at all times about any arrangements past or present with CWBM!
  3. What is the 60+60+60 Visa? Anyhow, I was at Immigration in Jomtien yesterday getting my 'Retirement' Visa and they were still issuing 30 day extensions for Tourist Visas for 1900 Baht.
  4. Congratulations and good luck Mr Fiend!
  5. It's a lot easier than the mainstream forums lead you to expect. It's just down to money (and what isn't here). If you are over 50 but have a problem with proving that you fit the necessary criteria, then a payment of 25 - 30 k can get you the visa in under 1 hour.
  6. One of Chelsea and Arsenal is looking to be out of the Champions League next season (MU / MC / TH / +1). Arsenal are better prepared to pay their wage bill, but Chelsea? Another Leeds! SELL; SELL; SELL (got to get the wage bill down) No Euro income and new regulations means that RA cannot simply pump money into the club. My predication : Championship within 3 years for CFC if they fail to get CL qualification this year.
  7. Okay, The OPC (one per child) initiative is completely screwed up in that manufacturers cannot actually make the product for the advertised price and then they have requested that governments subsidise the difference. The 'PC' that I am looking at is basic, but it stands a chance of providing a price level that is affordable in Issan. A board director of of one of the licensed manufacturers has also hinted that if the distribution can be through a recognised charity then a number of units could be provided. Raising money for charity and being a recognised charity are different things. This has to be a legitimate channel and the charity would probably need to have 'improving technology skills' as part of it's overall brief. I'm sure that such organisations exist, but it's finding them that's the problem. (I've checked through that Bangkok Post link and the data is so out of date unfortunately that it's not possible to contact most of the relevant people.) THIS IS NOT A REQUEST FOR MONEY. I just need to get a valid existing charity to act as conduit in order that the corporation can validate any donation as 'Charitable' and goods can then be valued as 'free' with no duties payable instead of having to pay the standard 40% for Computer Goods. Whether the corporation will subsidise the full cost; I am not sure. however making the product available at a low price which is affordable to the majoity IS. (In answer to CheshireTom, I have been invited by the headman of the village and also the local government officials in Koh Khamin to help with the developing both IT and English Language skills for the local schools. I understand that this is probably in breach of the terms of my 'retirement' Visa, but EVERYONE has simply said "You help Thailand; Thailand help you; Not worry. You not work, you not get salary, but we take care you.")
  8. One of the things I thought about getting involved with when I'm up country was setting up an after school 'club' for kids to start using and learning about computers, but as the cost of buying a full PC is out of the reach of most households it didn't look to be a practical thing to do. BUT, there is a new little 'gizmo' called the Rasperry Pi ( http://www.raspberrypi.org/ ) which has just been released by the RasperryPi Foundation which may make this idea possible. It'll run Linux and will handle mutimedia ( Think Pentium 2 with MUCH better grapic capability ) and the base price is only $35. Add a keyboard, SD card and cable to hook up to the TV and you've got a working computer. The biggest stumbling block is the 40% Import Duty and high shipping costs, but if I could get something linked with a charity, then I've been informed that it may be possible to work something out. Anyone have any contacts in registered charities that may be interested in this idea? If so, either post or maybe send me a PM.
  9. Chevy V8? Anyhow, if claims of riding bikes with bigger engines than cars having been driven are true then I can only assume we are talking about one of these :- Starting at a 'mere' 5700cc And getting bigger at 6200cc But the 'Big Daddy' is 9930cc
  10. The place on the other side of the road from Cherry restaurant? The one with the 'biusness for sale' sign in the window? 3.5 years on and I still smile at all the luandry signs as well.
  11. Well my choice of bike in the 125 - 150cc category is the Yamaha Spark (not automatic). Pretty nippy and okay for getting two people 100km on trips up to Bangkok. (I don't know why you're all on about 3litre turbo diesels. I used to love the power of the Lexus 4 litre V8)
  12. Mick, Next time you're in Pattaya, give me a call and I can give you some info on website creation, SEO techniques and general site traffic generation. George
  13. 'Old timers' become savvy. It's the way Pattaya works. So now it's time for the newbies to step up to the plate.
