  1. Siam Commercial Bank currently offers 3.1% for 15 months deposit
  2. I managed to find a good maid/nanny, but she just left Pattaya to go back to her home town ... therefore "on the market" again. Any help most welcome to find a good maid/nanny fulltime, either live-in or live-out. Thanks to all for good hints.
  3. Admiral Ken, I sent you a PM but you never replied. Am looking for a maid/nanny in Jomtien area. Suggestions welcome. Thanks
  4. Public Taxi from the airport. Cost 1.400 Baht, toll included. No waiting time, direct connection, 1.5 hours and you are in Pattaya.
  5. Ecellent news. Never been on a bar crawl to Dark Side or Ban Chang, but planning to. Next week not possible, but one of your next trips. Keep info coming. Thanks
  6. Gary & Nam-Thip ... thanks for the very constructive reply!
  7. What is the exact location on Beach Road?
  8. Looking for full time (biut not live in) maid/nanny for Jomtien If you know any reliable girl interested in a job, please let me know and provide contact details. Some English knowledge would be good, but if only Thai, we can manage. Thanks
  9. On behalf of a European company, I am looking for a journalist or marketing/commnication specialist interested to work for a very limited time (no more than 4-5 days several times per year) over a 2-3 year period to support commnication activities in Thailand. Retired expat applications welcome. Must have proven skills in commnication/visibility and experience in Thailand, fluent in English and good level of Thai. If interested, please pm me or apply by mail to md9722@hotmail.com
  10. The German embassy gave you the correct information. Your lady will have to apply for a Schengen Visa in Manila, unless she becomes a permanent resident of Thailand ...but that is another problem. Converting a tourist visa into a residence visa is unlikely as it requires multiple conditions and steps. Ed-Visa is not equal to a residence visa as far as I know and will not help to apply for a Schengen visa in Thailand. A quick trip to Manila seems to be the easiest way out.
  11. Am interested in buying a studio in VT 2 (A or . If anyone selling, please e-mail pictures and advise location and price you are looking for. Thanks e-mail: md9722@hotmail.com
  12. Thanks to all who provided hints. Finally managed to find what I was looking for... In case other members need stainless screws, bolds, ... there is a shop on Thepprasit Road, opposite Soi 5.
  13. No. Tried Homeworks, HomePro, Home Mart, Haefele ... nothing. Thanks anyway
  14. Would anybody know where Stainless steel screws can be bought in Pattaya? Thanks for info.
  15. Can anybody tell me how much time in advance a retirement visa can be renewed? I read somewhere 2 months, but not sure. Thanks for info.
  16. I used Q-Car in Jomtien a couple of times. No problem, good service. Just booked again for a week in April. Be aware that they do not take credit cards; cash only.
  17. I think immigration officers just are sick and tired of people asking the same stupid questions every day! Just do your home work, read advice given on the forum, read the adverts in the immigration office and sort out your paperwork properly. I have seen so many people turned down for not having used the right form, forgotten to bring pictures, not signing the copies of passport, etc .. I arrived on a Tourist Visa, and had it converted (and extended) to 1 year non-Imm O retirement all in 30 minutes, no questions, just a smile of all officers involved, probably surprised that a "falang for o
  18. That is not funny .... looks too much like real life for some of us ....
  19. Mr. Toom, Mr. X, Limo service .... why all this hassle? Jump in the first available taxi and avoid searching the driver, waiting for the limo to come, waiting for this or that ... Prices negotiable around 1,200 BHT.
  20. Stayed there on my last visit to Samui. Very good location, 5 minutes walk from nightlife and close to many restaurants. Basic but nice spa near the beach. Breakfast buffet could be better, but is acceptable. Rooms are quiet. Bungalows have better rooms than main buildings on the side. Good value for money. Enjoy your stay.
  21. In Bangkok, any pharmacy on Sukhumvit between Nana and Soi 9. Some of them advertise that they have it on sale, others not, but they all have supply.
  22. I have used Asia Rooms several time and found them quite reliable. Once I booked 5 nights, pre-paid and then arrived 1 day later due to delays of flight. Never asked anything, but they credited me 1 night and refunded to my credit card. Other reliable provider is www.agoda.com operating world wide, but very good prices in Bangkok.
