Re: Thailand No Longer A Place For Cheap Living

Surely that can not be true. I admit I have not been to see a movie for about 3 months and I have never gone on any specific day. But I don't recall paying more than Bt. 120 - 140 for a ticket to any movie at Paragon or Terminal 21- apart from at an iMax theatre or one of those tiny theatres where ...

Re: Why Americans are Flocking to Asia

. My little town of Bang Saray is crawling with elderly retired farang coupled with Thai girls who appear to be in their mid-twenties/early thirties and no one bats an eye. Dodger, please be more careful with your wording! I had visions of feeble, ancient men crawling on hands and knees, led on a l...

Re: New Immigration Requirement

He did not gamble with his money; he invested it in the stock market. I fail to see the significant difference. I see it quite differently. Other than buying two lottery tickets in my life, I never gambled a penny. But I did invest my money. While working I invested money in growth stocks but when ...

Re: Black Faces

I think we're taking PC far too far. We are now at a point where people should be aware of our ethnic diversity and not offend others by use of black face or other possibly insulting means. It is quite obvious that the photo of the guy in black face standing next to KKK guy was intentional and not ...

Re: Black Faces

As a youth, from 5th to 12th grade, I lived in a racially mixed town and never had I seen anyone in blackface. This was in the Middle Atlantic States/USA. Furthermore, in my university years, again blackface was never seen.

Re: New Immigration Requirement

I find it difficult to feel sorry for the the guy (Adam) in the story for the mere fact that he knew what the financial requirements were for residing in Thailand and decided to gamble with his money anyway versus keeping it in the bank to cover his ass. He did not gamble with his money; he investe...

Re: New Immigration Requirement

For those who want to see all those financially struggling kicked out of Thailand, do read this posting on Thai Visa. You may not agree but it does show there are two sides to the story. https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/1082407-due-to-thai-immigrations-new-financial-rules-reqs-i-need-help-with-money...

Re: New Immigration Requirement

Thereafter the retiree goes on living on Bt. 30,000 or so a month. The new "rule" is intended to get the loan sharks out of the business and the cheating retirees out of the country. Why so much animosity toward visa agents, and so called cheating retirees? What's the difference if someon...
