  1. Hello Steve, my name is Sanders(Sam) and I live in Pattaya now. I would like your help in a 100% condo renovation. My email is chippendalesam@yahoo.com
  2. I will give you a call Steve near the end of January. Hope to do business with you.
  3. Or anyone who has or knows of a good condition 150cc Honda-Yamaha scooter 4 sale.
  4. I just got into Pattaya 3 weeks ago. I also am seeking a good contractor for some improvements to my condo. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou in advance.
  5. I will be moving to Pattaya-Jomtien in the VERY NEAR future and would like to buy a push-bike (bicycle). Anyone have one they no longer use or know of a good bicycle shop they would reccomend? Thankyou in advance.
  6. I had the single iol put in. I am thinking of getting my left eye done in Thailand in a year or two. I am trying to depart for Thailand in September.
  7. I just had an IOL put in my right eye(cataracts) I highly recommend getting it done asap. Changed my life in a positive manner. Good luck to you, as I am envious of you being in Thailand. I plan to be there within the next 2 months. Cross your fingers for me, lol lol lol.
  8. Force, how is your e-bike working out?
  9. What area or what condo building did you buy in? Thankyou in advance.
  10. Thanks for the feed-back on your surgery, a good and valuable read. P.S. I guess you are a big Tom Osbourne fan?
  11. Has anyone visited the "tsunami" on 3rd road lately? If so is it still a good place with good value for your baht?
  12. Very good to see you back EP. I enjoy your postings and opinions.
  13. You are a lucky guy Lantern. Do you happen to know if they are the "Hass" type? I guess they will be making their way south imanintly to all the markets in Bangkok and Pattaya...??
  14. WOW Rhino that burger looks absolutely mouth watering. Do you recall how much it costs? Thank you in advance.
  15. Very good article bigusdicus. Thanks for taking the time to post it.
  16. Jacko thanks for replying back to me, but forgive my ignorance-stupidity-misunderstanding, but your answer is the one i desire to hear but it is a bit different than the one midlifecrisis gave me. Perhaps i did not phrase my question correctly or midlifecrisis misunderstood me???? P.S. Jacko do you attend the PEC ex-pats sunday meetings at the holiday inn?
  17. Thankyou midlifecrisis, that is a GREAT article,(i read it twice). But i think for my "fine tuning" questions i will have to speak in person with a higher up bank official at Bangkok bank for a concrete resolution to my question. When the time comes, i don't mind paying a few dollars for a transfer of my funds but i don't wish to get short changed with a currency exchange "rip off". I guess i will have to keep a VERY close eye on the time i wish to transfer and perhaps camp out ( ha ha) at Bangkok bank for a while. Thanks again for your time.
  18. into a Thai(Bangkok Bank) US dollar account, do I negate all the current baht-dollar conversion downturns? In other-simple terms 100 dollars transferred out of USA, 100 dollars received in my Thai bank account, minus transfer fee of course?
  19. Thank you to all of you gentlemen for your time-knowledge-opinion on my question. And Jacko, yes i have noticed lately there is an over supply of condos in the Pattaya-Jomtien area; but that just HELPS me as a buyer and my leverage even more as a cash buyer. So i think i should get a better than fair price with the current atmosphere on condo prices. Now as we all kmow the BIGGEST issue currently is the currency debacle going on at this time.
  20. Very tiny bit dangerous but i think simple and quicker. I was thinking when i move to Thailand to bring a certified bank check from my reputable US bank in my wallet to open my Thai bank account and purchase my condo and the 800k baht threshold. Is this legal? Has anyone done it? Etc.?
  21. Thank you Jacko for your time in keeping me and all others up to date on the current rates. I really appreciate your pics of the tt boards.
  22. Wow, that's a great deal for 85 baht. Looks tasty and "oh so" healthy. I will definitely try it.
  23. Thanks for the update Jacko with the real-current, "boots on the ground" ex-change rates.
