Re: 90 day non o visa.Multi Entry.

The cutoff date is wrong for most offices, certainly Udon has stated they will honour the 6 month valid period. There has been no official word on what, if any, proof of income will be accepted.

Re: Social Outcasts.

I don t know about Keyboard Commandos, but i have seen a lot of loneliness in Udon, mostly older farangs, yes they might NOT have many forms of social life, maybe, just maybe, they never had a chance to develop any social skill, quite common in older people.

Re: Traffic Congestion. Sunday 4th Nov

Just to add to that. a Royal princess is also in town and going to depart the military airport mid afternoon today with the usual gathering of escorts, so expect more congestion in this area.For Royal watchers it is the mother of the present K.ngs daughter .

Re: hes done it again ..dirty devil

I find this quite amusing that a Pattaya bar girl who must have tossed a few hundred cocks in her" career" has the audacity not only to be offended but to still film the poor lad having a waink+.

Re: Income Letter

As the British Embassy (BE) has over the years made huge amounts of money from providing these letters,I am hopeful,that they will find a way to appease the Thai authorities and still produce these letters. The loss of this income will hurt the BE. Luckily enough my UK state pension just kicked in ...
