Re: Experince with loan shark

now saying 80 K and 10 K a month for eight months That does rather suggest that they're making it up as they go along. Sounds more like family members trying it on than 'professional" lenders.All the the big boys in my area give very strict precise agreements which are definitely non negotiable .Ma...

Re: Experince with loan shark

It is my experience that these guys would only loan a large amount like that , against some collaterel, so I would check any possessions you have , cars , bikes etc to see if you still have the log books .

Will onviously be of interest to both immigration and US embassy for possible links to people trafficking. Not the sort of thing UM wants to be caught up in I would have thought.

Re: Proud to be English

Serious question, are there many farang that refuse to assimilate, I would say a good 99% of people i've met here do, i would say the vast majority at least try to speak some Thai and are respectful of Thai culture. Well I do my best but it isn't easy when after ten years living here I am still ref...

Re: Don't forget Sir Winston Churchill tomorrow

Unless I am very mistaken we have a day set aside each year to enable those of us lucky enough to have been born after the World Wars to learn about and remember family members who fell whilst serving their country. That day is REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY (The nearest Sunday to November 11th). If we are to ...

Re: Is she genuine?

I think the obvious flaw in the Op was "she visited him in Europe twice" Certainly not the UK because her credentials, bar girl , no job or money, wouldn't get her past the door in the Embassy visa section and even if she got a shenigan visa she still couldn't get over the water to the UK.

Not sure if I would describe those massive mammaries as eye candy myself, being a more than a handful as a waste, man but this topic does raise a further question.
