    hotmail changes in thailand?

    When you open Hotmail..... up the top on the right hand side as you look at the screen there are 6 icons. One looks like a gear wheel.....that is your settings. Click on it and you should be able to do what you want.

    Pakistani airspace closed

    Where are you flying from and how has your flight been messed up by TG??? I take it TG is Thai Airlines..... they are not responsible of what happened between the two countries concerned....they are working with China to use their airspace for their flights. Going by your NOTAM... it is saying that the airspace is not closed …. it is still operating in a reduced activity.... in fact some International airports there are still open with restricted access.

    sore throat

    If it is as bad as you say...I would be visiting a Dr or hospital today to get it checked out. No idea what you have..... but would get it checked now.

    The Tavern Soi 4 (BKK)

    The Big Mango used to be in Nana Plaza but moved to the Soi you mention and agree about the bloke who ran it...…. but I will admit... his burgers were bloody good ….. good value for what you paid.... but as you say... now a past memory.

    Pattaya Beer Garden

    Good place for a relaxing beer and a snack to start the night is the beer garden. Also no pressure sell when you are there.... so all good to get into the mood for the night proceedings.. As an aside.... if you go at night...on the walk in check out the bars on the left as there are a few hidden gems there. I usually cast an eye over them on the way in... and totter into them on the way out if I spot something.

    IT finally happened to me !!!!

    Not actually true... you do not have to live here to open an account..... but you will have better chance if you are here on a longer visa than just the 30 days. Best idea is to try several branches.... take proof of an address... passport.... etc..... if one knocks you back... go to the next one.
  7. Showed up on the Australian Embassy website today that as from 7 January of next year... they will be doing the same.

    Durian Pizza ????

    No way durian is for a pizza..... but ... a good hawaiian pizza or ham and pineapple pizza is the bees knees. Same as a hamburger is not a hamburger if it does not have beetroot.

    Non Immigrant-O Visa

    I had all the proof... but same as you they did not ask for it but I still asked the question. I was told also that it would be reflected on their website. Yes... I have been told you have to make an appointment now even for getting a declaration witnessed and also that payment will only be accepted by credit/debit card.... you cannot pay by cash. Not sure if that is the case but will give them a call to see. Agree with you... it seems to be who takes care of you at the counter in what they ask for.

    Non Immigrant-O Visa

    I can only give an example of the Aussie Embassy in Bkk. As of the beginning of this year when you went to get the income letter you had to provide proof of income where in previous year you filled out the declaration and they just stamped it as accepted. On asking at the Embassy why different to previous years, they said it was requested by the Thai Government that proof be provided. Thanks for the info kwan….. I am due again in February next year so will be interesting to see if there is a change. If I find anything...I will update here.
  13. I will stick with my Oppo.

    Bangkok Flight Services

    If you use Thai.... on the departure you just go to the business/first class desks designated for Thai Aiways travel and you do not go near the other Immigration Lines... it has it's own one. On arrival into Thailand.... if you are travelling business/first class with Thai...… you use the priority lane by showing the stub of your boarding pass.

    Bangkok Flight Services

    If they removed the people who have not filled out the Arrival Card from the line..... then the progression would be smoother. At one stage they use to have Immigration Officials going along the line checking this and getting them out of line to do so...… so it appears they do not do this now??
