Re: Marriage Extension New Rule

Does anyone know if these FCD accounts that are being accepted are Savings Accounts or Fixed Deposit Accounts? Mine are FD accounts and Bangkok Bank will give me a letter stating the conversion to Baht and the fact that my money is available upon demand. I would lose the interest on the account if ...

Re: Birds of Udon

You probably don't see many of these birds in/around the city, but just a few km outside the ring road: green bee catcher, kingfisher, mangrove pita, yellow-breasted finch, white-rumped shama, red-whiskered bulbul, green-billed malkoha, olive-backed sunbird, black-colored starling......among many. ...

Re: Udon Thani Immigration:Is Affidavit still valid for non USA, UK, DK, AUS retirees?

[background=] If I remember what I read a while back the account, be it 400k or 800k, can not be a joint account. If this is correct and the owner dies how does the Thai spouse get access to the funds? She goes to the bank with death certificate. Or you could simply keep simply keep the account in j...

Re: Can opener issues

I have been struggling with opening cans of imported stuff recently. Seems like it clamps down and the cutting disk punctures the top OK. But when I turn the key, the teeth can't find much of a lip to grip on and bugger all happens. This is with a couple high quality can openers as well that worked...

Re: Udon Thani Immigration:Is Affidavit still valid for non USA, UK, DK, AUS retirees?

I feel the same way about them freezing 400,000; but there's not much anyone can do other than do what you plan to do: go back to the marriage extension requirements. As you correctly pointed out, it's probably going to create more work for the IOs. Do you know if you can withdraw any of the 400,00...

Re: Rumor Check: Problems with income method in Udon for extension based on retirement

. I'm very much appreciative of the IOs in UTH. However, they don't care much for tedious time-consuming processes -- like the marriage visa mountain of paperwork. Can't much blame them. It's a shame that they don't have a computer system that provide documents already on file so that everything wo...

Re: Fishing my Pond.

Shrimp paste mixed with bread as hook bait. They go crazy for it.
Heavy float with weight closer to the hook should get the bait down past the small fry before they get the chance to have a go at it.. Failing that use the ledger method
