Re: Yet Another Immigration Question

From the interview with the lady at the British Consulate, it seemed clear that it was Immigration which raised with her the issue of proof. It was not the other way around. Although not American and using the Bt. 800,000 route, it seems to me at least plausible that Immigration has not singled out ...

Re: Another Triumph for American Democracy

Surely the point is more that Nevadans seem about to elect a dead man!

Then I suppose if an idiot crook can be elected to the White House, anything is possible!

Re: British Embassy Bangkok to stop Certification of Income Letters

If I heard that rather rambling conversation correctly, proof of income coming from the UK is not acceptable. The only alternative to the 800,000 Bt. Is a bankbook showing that monthly payments of a minimum of 65,000 Bt. have been received during the previous 12 months. I wonder how many of the 3,00...

Models in Bangkok's Moonlight Bar

I see on another forum there is a post about the new Moonlight bar on the other side of Suriwong from Soi Twilight. I believe it is located in the old Jupiter bar. It seems they have a number of real models, not just the usual go-go money boys. These models seem to be extremely handsome. I hope so b...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I truly had never heard of him Living in the USA and I assume not having much of an interest in soccer, I find that hardly surprising. But those soccer fans living in Europe are aware that there are some amazing players who are household names. Keep your eye out for 19-year old Kylian Mbappe who pl...

Re: Yet Another Immigration Question

they tell him activity is required, and he makes a token deposit. Just to reconfirm, that token deposit should not be made when receiving the bank letter. In Bangkok at least, it is to be made just prior to visiting the Immigration officer so the bankbook can be updated on the day of application. A...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

P.S Have you ever heard of that soccer player? Do you think he's really their favorite or is he just the most prominent player the producers could persuade to be on the show? Here I go again. He certainly is one of the great players of the last 15 years or so. Born in Sweden, he was with Manchester...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I know there will be some who will regard this appearance on Ellen DeGeneris's show as exploitation. At first I feared it might be. But as the programme continues I changed my mind. The chance for the boys to meet one of their idols, the great soccer player Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and not only to see on...

Re: Canada senate revokes Suu Kyi's honorary citizenship

Isn't the problem that the UN can do precisely nothing? Any form of action requires the agreement of the Security Council. The UN Human Rights Panel has already produced a 400 page report in August detailing the extent of the atrocities. That recommended that top military officials in Myanmar be inv...

Re: Canada senate revokes Suu Kyi's honorary citizenship

I totally agree. And I condemn in the strongest possible terms what has happened to the Rohingya. But what can the UN or the world do to stop it? After all, they did nothing to stop the evacuation of the Palestinians from their lands. They have done nothing to stop the exodus of 6 million plus refug...
