Re: Land Transportation Office

As GB says, it pays to get there early as there are two or three queues (one for farangs) outside the front door forming at 0800. The Thais go in first at 0830, you are given numbers as you enter. Watch the board for your number and then you go upstairs to be processed. When I got my 5 year license,...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 5

Could be, but a better guess might be Kelly. The Trump reaction to McCain's death was the last straw. Actually, here is my pick...as absurd as it may sound... Lindsey Graham But​ Graham is not a senior administration official. The NYT probably kept the description vague to protect the identity. Thi...

Some of the beach changes can be viewed in this video. Hopefully you can decipher the heavy Aussie accent. Also is his link on the new Terminal 21.

Re: More Jomtien Beach Restrictions

Sure glad you are not a beach concessionaire or restaurant owner (not a Burger King) ... taking care of one's regular customers means having a successful business. So how do you treat customers at a hotel pool or a beach resort? The number of regular customers is likely to be less than 1%. Do you s...

Re: More Jomtien Beach Restrictions

taking care of one's regular customers means having a successful business. And you think that's the way to take care of them, treating others as second class customers? Sorry, include me out. Next time I see Jose@Au bon Coin, Peter@Yupins, Gian@Gian's, as examples, I will tell them I feel like a se...

Re: More Jomtien Beach Restrictions

I would have no problem with reserved chairs as long as there are plenty more chairs available in good locations. However, my opinion is there should be no such thing as reserved chairs. I think it should be only first come, first served....... . Sure glad you are not a beach concessionaire or rest...

Re: ACH transfers from USA to Bangkok Bank -Alert!

Banks like Wells Fargo, Chase, BofA, typically have restrictions on ACH transfers, be it a fee or the number of transfers. I didn't write clearly. The problem I had with my U.S. bank was their limit on the dollar amount. Something like $3k per transfer and $6k total per month. Not suitable for me. ...

Re: More Jomtien Beach Restrictions

Throwing a towel on chairs by staff to reserve them is something that has been done since I can remember. Last century, I recall showing up at Rit's section in high season and say I have friends coming, and staff would throw towels on chairs. There is no need for anyone to get pissed, it's like dini...
