  1. Hi, Obviously I do this when away from home For example, had lunch in Terminal 21 a little while back and when it was time to head back to the office I found out it was raining heavily in Asoke. So, quick check revealed it was not raining at home, so rather than waiting for the rain to stop, I went home and worked from home the rest of the day. Sanuk!
  2. Hi, We installed a few security cameras at home after the renovation and this is actually what I use them for often Quick check if it is raining at home. Sanuk!
  3. Hi, Ah, okay. Seems kinda pointless. As you said, everyone living in BKK for more than a few minutes will have seen a traffic jam. Sanuk!
  4. Hi, Isn't this info that is already displayed on Google Maps? (Don't really check this as I don't drive) Also, what would be the point in creating an account? Don't see anything that mentions what the benefits of this would be. Sanuk!
  5. Hi, Yes, he will definitely be missed. As mentioned his BBQ parties were a blast. I too was not aware of his daughter's death either. Combine that with his health issues and having to move back to the US, this last year or so must have been hell. RIP Suadum KS (PS As likely a lot of people on this board recall him, I figured this warranted a thread of its own rather than being buried in the Global RIP thread)
  6. Hi, I think that is fine, as long as you don't use any fake tattoos at the same time. Sanuk!
  7. Hi, "which they can take home" Never to use them again. Just fucking rent them out so they can be re-used. Sanuk!
  8. Hi, Interesting read (although a bit shoddily written), but nothing in there that will really surprise anyone in Thailand. Sadly. Nor will this change anything. Most likely it will disappear out of the public's eye soon, after which everything will be business as usual again. Sanuk!
  9. Hi, That $80K is ridiculous as well. A single person could easily live very comfortably on half that. The $80K is more than 20 times the minimum wage and about 4 times the salary required for a work permit (for people from most Western countries). Sanuk!
  10. Hi, They are really hung up on this '1 million', aren't they? When they tried this with the elite card, it was also expected they'd get 1 million people. And just like with that, this'll fail to reach that number. Sanuk!
  11. Hi, And here in Thailand ... Former secretary got her license after 6 hours of 'lessons' driving on a converted parking lot. Did not spend a single minute in actual traffic. Sanuk!
  12. Hi, With Mekong on this. Out of all the countries in the region I can't really see me living anywhere else. MY and ID are out due to the religion, PH as well to be honest. SG too expensive. HK as well and now basically part of CN. KH, LA and VN still too under developed I think (just my feeling, not spent time in any of them for years or ever). MM, just no. Pretty much settled here. Last year we bought the house we'd been renting for 20+ years and have spent 3 months totally renovating it earlier this year (and I mean totally :), new roof, replace all electric, replace all windows, new ceilings, re-painted, new kitchen). As for when it loses it appeal, I guess it depends a bit on what part. The nightlife scene lost its appeal to me 2 decades ago, but I still love living here. I guess priorities shift when you go from being single to married to having kids to having grand kids (1st one due in about 2 months). Sanuk!
  13. HI, To me it reads mostly as a "let's pat ourselves on the back" survey. No substance what so ever. How about questions like? - How do you feel about the 90-day reporting? - What are your views on land ownership? - How do you feel about the government engaging in and promoting dual-pricing? Sanuk!
  14. Hi, Well, at least you are honest about it. One of my friends just claims that it isn't that bad and it will get better in time. Sanuk!
  15. Hi, >My guess is the Thai embassy, the immigration don't all have the same info. More like, nobody giving a fuck and just making shit up as they go. I get the impression this happens quite a bit in Thai gov. Good to hear (read?) that you had a nice vacation and sorry you couldn't work things out. That's life, I guess. Sanuk!
  16. Hi, I wish they put as much effort into solving other crimes, like, oh I don't know, the murder of 2 Brits on Koh Tao. I guess it is different if victim instead of the perpetrator is famous. Sanuk!
  17. Hi, Good to hear you are still around! Sanuk!
  18. Hi, Exactly. You really do not want China to invest in your country's infrastructure Probably worried he's gonna get voted out next time (unless he cheats again), and grabbing what he can while he still can. Sanuk!
  19. Hi, Just drop this bullshit completely. 45M Baht/year? What a waste of money. Sanuk!
  20. Hi, Maybe the object used to 'reserve' the place was ambiguous, say a broken branch? Could have been placed there to 'reserve', but could also have just ended up there by falling from a tree. Sanuk!
  21. Hi, "‘No one’ was the second choice with 18.7%" Brilliant! Sanuk!
  22. Hi, WTF! How would people in the middle of the bottom row even get out? There's not enough space between the seat and the wall for a leg. And can you imagine having a wall 30cm in front of your face for 11 hours? Sanuk!
  23. Hi, Wow, that is pretty damn empty. Not been there in years. Sanuk!
