Re: Snake in the attic

Mrs N spotted a green snake about 30cm long in a tree across the lawn. By the time she got there (don’t really know what she intended to do) it had slithered out of reach. She returned to the house insisting I buy a snake grabber thing from Lazada which is something I never expected to be on my on ...

Re: Royal Thai Police to implement new priorities....

The simple fact that they STILL require HOSPITALS to obtain blood for a conviction beggars belief, but then as their Roadside testing machines are hardly likely to be calibrated on a regular service schedule I expect they will find more drunk drivers. My friend was recently found drunk driving on a...

Re: Larger size T shirts

Down side to Shopee for me is the payment method. I like the idea of paying upon receipt of the order. Shopee now has that also. I am getting two orders during this week and COD (Cash on delivery). Still size is a question. I have seen xxxl size t-shirts, which have over 10 inc difference in size. ...

Re: University Tuition Fees at Udon Thani or Khon Kaen

I have been following costs for my daughter. Not yet going, but good to know beforehand. 1st year minimum would be 200 000 thb, including courses, room and admin. I believe above mentioned fees are per course and those will be 60-100 courses per year. 2nd and 3rd year would be about 150 000 thb and ...

When doing an extension based on marriage, can the "witness" be a family member?
Not a relative. Including family. Should also be known you and your wife at least one year, if I remember correctly. Anyway not relative.

Do you know if this Kor Sor 2 needs to be done on the same day as your application for your annual extension of stay based on marriage to a Thai at Udon Immigration? If not, how far in advance do they deem acceptable? It doesn’t need to be the same day, that is only for the bank letter. A week befo...

It is not only the mask. Also how to use/fit it. Some good masks are not good for all of us. This is from one analysis made by 3 specialists. They should be trained to use masks and still same 3M 9001V mask is very good or only avarage. Mask itself works same way, but fit test makes difference. If o...
