  1. Agree with all . I did see that throwing water from the back of pickups has been banned , so that would cut out a lot of the Thai youths. That's seems to be their chosen MO . Sent from my Mi A2 Lite using Tapatalk
  2. They have.. Alternate option ..park in Rhompo ,walk across the road in half the time. Sent from my Mi A2 Lite using Tapatalk

  4. Anyone watching "Treadstone" ? As a spin-off from the Jason Bourne movies I wanted it to be so good ! I'm up to ep 3 , and not getting into it yet. Sent from my Mi A2 Lite using Tapatalk
  5. [quote post="1260539" timestamp="1576575164" name="Butch" I have never been refused a BB Visa when I've asked, and only once was I actually not given one. I could arguably put that down to the number of stamps I have in my PP, but I would hedge my bets on the immigration officer not really giving a shit whether I have one or not. So the generalized comment ..in your original post ..just ask for a BB and you'll get one is not correct .. You forgot to add ..have a long history of visitation , including previous BB stamps .. but , that's still not a guarantee .. This topic is regularly discussed on PI forums and I can assure you .. not everyone relates the same experience as you do .. I have a similar PI history that u do, Inc living there for 4 years ..I'm going next month ..I'll try your strategy , but not holding out much hope ..I might owe you a beer ..who knows !

  6. This is absolutely incorrect. Balikbayan is not a visa , but, a privilege . A privilege granted to a spouse or family member of a Filipino . Not girlfriend/fiancee ! The act states the husband/child must be arriving with the Filipino citizen . Sent from my Mi A2 Lite using Tapatalk
  7. Make sure to go on a night it's open ..Fri, Sat, Sun only Sent from my Mi A2 Lite using Tapatalk
  8. There is (or was, it's been a couple of years since I lived there ) a WU office right at the entrance to VT5 condos Jomtien .. virtually opposite Big Kahuna . Sent from my Mi A2 Lite using Tapatalk
  9. Haha I think it was 1995 for me ..the plane disembarked onto the tarmac ,and we had to walk to the terminal .. My ( chainsmoker ) wife , lit up on the walk .. I said WTF ! She just pointed to a group of workers smoking in the shade by the terminal building .. Sent from my vivo 1713 using Tapatalk
  10. Unfortunately ..as of today, Dave has closed the Cantina ! Sent from my vivo 1713 using Tapatalk
  11. My first landlord ..French guy , showed no inclination at all to process the TM30 , and eventually I was able to get the documents from him,and do it myself at Jomtien. ..paid a late fine ,think 1600 bt ?? , which i deducted from my next months rent. My current landlady ,Thai ( ladyboy :) ) Is keen to do it all correctly ,and registered within the first 24 hr of lease signing,and came back with the completed part ,to keep in my passport. When I advised her I was going out of the country she insisted i let her know on my return date,and she will go to Jomtien again. I told her dont bother, or even I can do it myself, but she said she was told she must do it if I leave ,and return . All good .. Always nice to be on the right side of immigration rules.

  13. Also at the top floor of the Topps Supermarket newish Chilled building on Soi Khao Noi , if you're on the darkside . Sent from my SM-T535 using Tapatalk
  14. The thing is ..with the pre-determined fare ..acceptable to both you and the driver , then the route doesn't really matter , even if he does take you on a longer option ..it's only a loss to him , of fuel and time. Sent from my SM-T535 using Tapatalk
  15. Sandbar By the Sea , on the Dongtan Beach side road could also be an option ..when I stayed at VT5 , I alternated between Pastrami and Sandbar for breakfasts. Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Tapatalk
