Re: Yet Another Immigration Question

RichLB could easily clear this up by checking with his friend and adding the reply to this thread. I only see this friend sporadically, but will certainly seek to clarify his reportage. I had occasion to go to the bank today and asked the bank manager about this new "rule" and she had nev...

Yet Another Immigration Question

Tonight at dinner a new friend authoritatively reported that for those maintaining the 800.000 baht deposit in a Thai bank they must also demonstrate that there has been ongoing activity in that account. I've never heard of this new rule, yet he insisted that is the case. Can anyone confirm this &qu...

DTAC Upgrade

I've been told Dtac is requiring users to upgrade their sim card by September 15 from G3 to G4. Failure to do so supposedly will result in a termination of service on that date. So, a couple questions... Is there a way to find out if I already have a G4 sim card without going to a Dtac office? Does ...

However, when it comes to living in Thailand I still go by the Richard Burk Philosophy. Here it is yet again:

"If you want love in Thailand, rent it."

Given that oft quoted Richard Burk statement, am I safe in assuming that to the two of you love and sex are the same thing?

Re: Lonely without a boyfriend

At last a realist!!!! The attitude of the last couple posters confuses me. Isn't "love" defined by the emotions one experiences? If one loves someone, isn't that the reward you seek? I suspect that imposing an economic transactional model on the relationship automatically negates the expe...

Re: A question for Trump supporters

This question opens up a dilemma I wrestle with. I have a couple acquaintances who support Trump. They are otherwise nice guys and affable. But, my belief is that Trump is a treasonous traitor I think that supporting such a man is being complicit with his crimes. So, how should I comport myself? Con...

Re: Lonely without a boyfriend

It would be interesting to know how many of these relationships are "Open" versus "Monogomous". For us it's Don't Ask, Don't Tell. I'm not aware of any extracurricular activities of my partner, but part of me hopes that when he reaches my age he can have memories of some excitin...

Re: Lonely without a boyfriend

Wow, 18 must be the magic number. Ken and I have also been together for 18 years. Something must have been in the air back in the year 2000.

Re: Lonely without a boyfriend

Wow, 18 must be the magic number. I, too, have been with my Thai partner for 18 years and thank my lucky stars we found each other. I don't think I would ever be truly happy not having someone with whom to share my life. And, luckily for me, that someone is Ken.

Re: Pattaya tests new type of home mosquito trap

One method that seems to work is a couple sprigs of lemon grass in a room. Seems mosquitoes hate it and flee when they smell it. Anyway, it's worked for me.
