Re: Nok Restaurant - in Nongsamrong Area (Sponsor)

I just heard from Nok that Alfie was in a serious accident yesterday and is critical condition at Udon General Hospital. He was riding his bicycle and was rear ended by three teenagers driving a motorcycle.

I don't have any other details right now.

Re: Vietnam aims for Thailand’s auto-making crown

I may be wrong, but I believe that trade between the ASEAN members is tariff free.

Re: Will Trump make the Grade.

As a note of interest, during the same time frame since Trump's election, Britain's stock market is up 1.6%, Germany's market is up 6.8% and the Chinese market is DOWN (18.1%). Makes the American market increase of 23% even more impressive when compared to the other major markets.

Re: Will Trump make the Grade.

But he seems to have stopped bragging about the soaring stock market, probably because it's now down a little over 6% since his inauguration. So while tax revenues may be up, investor confidence, which was way up early in his Presidency, is now down. Just an observation. You fail to mention that th...

I eat at Nok's a couple of times a week. The food is always great, reasonably priced and well worth the trip.

Yes, they stopped that service on 01/01/17, 6 months before I was married. I can't say for sure if it has been reinstated since, but I don't believe that it has.

For me it was 1 afternoon, the following morning and early afternoon.

Re: Getting married.!

I got married in Bangkok in June 2016. You should allow 3 days to get your paperwork approved. The step that took the longest (2 days) was legalizing the Affirmation of Freedom to Marry at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. On the 4th day, we were ready to register the marriage at the Amphur office.

Re: US IRS Tax ID Number

I have just learned that the US Embassy in Bangkok is now beginning to offer to certify foreign passports for use in the renewal of the ITIN. There is developing a huge demand for certification services now that ITINs need to be renewed every five years. Before you only had to renew an ITIN if it ha...

Re: US IRS Tax ID Number

To renew your wife's ITIN, you will either need to send in the actual documents to the IRS (Austin, TX) or you may go to a Certified Acceptance Agent. There are currently three CAAs in Thailand. They are: DNA Business Services LLC d/b/a And Business Services 8-274 Lumpini Ville Ratburana-Bangpakok 1...

Re: Electric Hair Clippers

I bought my hair clippers from a barber supply store just down the street from where Fuzzy Ken's is now located (across the street from the bus station). It is on the same side of the street as Fuzzy Ken's and maybe 50 meters south of his spot. After 8 years, my clippers still work well.

Re: Nok Restaurant - in Nongsamrong Area (Sponsor)

Just finished eating one of my favorite meals in Udon - about as close as you can come to having a chicken fried steak meal in Thailand. To all of those members who are not from the American midwest or south, a chicken fried steak meal is one of the greatest comfort foods ever created. The only sign...

Re: Any Marriage/Relationship counselors in the area?

Mrs. Dtam at the Mono Place (which is close to Aek Hospital) provides counseling services. I am not sure if that includes relationship counseling, but you could call her and ask. She has a degree in Psychology and speaks excellent English.

Re: Xmas dinner

Word of warning. My understanding is that the traditional Turkey will NOT be available, due to restrictions the Government has seen fit to impose. Sophie's Bistro served up delicious turkey on Thanksgiving (24 Nov for you non-Americans). I don't know if they will be having turkey again on Christmas...

Re: Xmas dinner

I believe that Nok's Restaurant is planning their big meal on Christmas Eve rather than Christmas Day. That works great for me - Nok's on Christmas Eve and Sophie's Bistro on Christmas Day. I am fairly certain that I will be able to gain at least ten kilos by the time the festivities end!
