  1. Been down there a couple of times this week (last night most recently). Busy. In fact all of soi 7 was quite active. The sidewalk bars may prove to be a thorn in the side of the legitimate bar owners, we'll have to wait and see. Public toilets @ 10B per visit. Will be interesting to see the impact of the closing of Queens Park on the soi 22 bars near Titanium.

    5G available?

    A friend tells me 5G is available in some areas of Bangkok. Is that correct? Or is it just some sort of AIS/DTAC marketing ploy?
  3. I'm confused. The Thai consulate website has this stipulation for an OA visa... Bank statement or evidence of adequate finance showing a deposit of the amount equal to and not less than 800,000 Baht or an income certificate (an original copy) with a monthly income of not less than 65,000 Baht, or a deposit account plus a monthly income totaling not less than 800,000 Baht In the case of submitting a bank statement, a letter of guarantee from the bank (an original copy) is required 800k plus 60K/B monthly? Would a Bangkok Bank account with 800K (for 3 months plus) suffice? They also say a deposit account plus monthly income of 800K. Surely that's just an error that didn't translate properly? Confusing for me.
  4. I vote to leave it as is. This board is a great source of information.
  5. I've found if you ask 5 different Thai people how to say or pronounce something (in Thai) you probably get 5 different answers. Same with asking "fluent speaking" farangs.
  6. I'm looking to get my 5s battery replaced in BKK. Any recommendations of reliable shops? Thank you.

    New Apples

    Some iphone 5 batteries have been recalled. You may want to look into it.
  8. He's lucky the driver didn't attack him with a rusty farm tool.
  9. Been transferring over in Taipei for the last couple of years and I figured maybe I should check it out. Any tips of what to do, where to stay, getting around, where to drink, etc? Not interested in the p4p scene. I would only be interested in 2 - 3 nights. Thanks.
  10. It never occurred to me I could block the provider's sms messages. I just figured that was part and parcel with the sim card.
  11. I'm planning to travel to Saigon and environs soon. The last time I was there I bought a sim card (cant remember the carrier) and I was constantly bombarded with promotions via sms. What is a good (carrie)r sim card to get?
  12. I always went to Beautiful Optical, now Top Charoen. They seem to always have a sale and they will bargain,
  13. At those prices (and size) I'd buy two. One for me and one for the tilac and her (visiting) family.
  14. Thanks. I saw some of those. That's what stirred my interest.
