Re: Protecting valuables

Not even any form of ID? Why? If the police ever ask for ID, I think they're going to regret that decision. If there is a valid, logical reason not to carry any ID at all, I'd like to know what it is. I really don't know why! I was in a car with this gentleman and as we approached a police check po...

It obviously seems much safer to carry a copy and leave the actual passport in the safe, but sometimes it's said that he police won't accept a copy a...

Missing was 2,500 Australian dollars and 35,000 baht in cash and 1,000 US dollars in American Express travelers' checks. What the fuck was this idiot doing with this much cash in the room? :roll: Not at all uncommon. Many farang bring loads of cash to Thailand and exchange it here, enough to cover ...

Re: British Embassy Bangkok to stop Certification of Income Letters

That's how many Americans manage to get away with cheating and lying about their actual income. Well, maybe. I do know an expat that does lie, sort of. He writes down the minimum income of 65K Baht/month even though his actual income is 4 times that. Nonetheless, doing away with the income certific...

Re: Yet Another Immigration Question

Since the USA embassy simply takes your word for whatever you tell them about your income, many Americans have been lying about their monthly income and their actual income is far less than the 65,000 baht per month minimum - and they've been getting away with it for many years. Is that an opinion ...

Re: Good Boys - Not closing down after all

. Within a minute they were showing their goods. There might have been a mistake with the bill. it was only 250 baht for three drinks. As I did ask the 2 boys to join me, I tipped each 100 baht. Undaunted, were you sitting out front or in the back when the goods were displayed? 250 Baht may have be...
