Now young Dickster here is the big question. You know the big problem for Ex-pats in Thailand is the Medical issue. Medical insurance for the old tossers are simply out of reach for most.

Ok for normal stuff but throw a heart attack and one is looking at Major buks to get sorted out. Private Hospital that is.

So lets say you get raped by a Dolphin and ya need a new arsehole fitted how are ya guna pay. ?

I mean,

Have ya got decent medical insurance sorted or how does it work over there for the Round eye. ????

Good to see your making inroads, dick. Enjoy the cheapness/bargains while its all good. . The food does look fantastic, I have to admit. I always did think of Japan as being a really interesting place to visit ... (ponders).

^ Glad you asked.. got that sorted in my first week...

I pay $30 for full-coverage... $5 check-up, 70% off dentists (already cheap).. covers operations, etc... (no penis enlargement surgery unfortunately).

Oh, I can get laser IPL face treatments, etc.. done (I'm not kidding)... not that a manly man like me would be interested in that..(ahem)...

Once I have an income in Japan, it will be adjusted up accordingly... fark.. tax is another thing I have learned so much about... another story there...

Japan is 5 hours from Bangkok, some very good air fares these days.

Dicky has invited myself and my Handbag to stay in their spare bedroom and said we could borrow the new car.

Thanks Dickster, you're quite the generous fella eh.

Ta.

See ya Soon Richard.

^ Honestly, you guys are most welcome... (not kidding).

10 mins to the beach... moving in a couple weeks... now what's the delay with me car? had to fax the dealer a stamp (Inkan) from the owner of the land (Gran owns this land)..needed her permission... then the document has to go to the police, for approval.. so I guess that's the delay...

Yaris is OK... the Kei (aptly named, if in Thai KEE car).... is even smaller.. 600 cc.. engine will turn itself off at traffic lights.. really horrible thing.. (and I dig small cars)..

Not being a car snob... I had a Honda Fit/Jazz... great, agile little car (huge like a tardis in the back) swallowed all my plastering gear/ladders, easy...

You'd have to drive one in Japan... then you'll know how bad they are...

Good rates Dicky. Cover wife as well?
Being employed in any country helps medical costs. My wife and I are covered 100% in Thailand for medical/dental/vision with no deductible. However thats while I remained employed. Retire and I am on my own.

However I am always amazed on how medical coverage can grip some people to the point they are afraid to move anywhere or do anything. Sad really.

I am a long way off from SS and Medi-cal in the US. I will wing it until then and when a major shows up if it does i will hop a plane. If I die in the air...so be it.

Yup, she's covered as well... I suppose it's prudent if I/we get part time jobs, at least while we are building our business (student base)... have to walk before we run..

don't want to eat too heavily into my savings... + I'm getting bored anyway... damn... hope my car is ready soon... patience is not one of my virtues...

Great. My wife was elated that I negotiated full medical coverage. She has her own insurance from the hospital where she worked so she is well covered regardless of my position.

To your point, when I retire I have to keep in mind that its all money going out and no income in (from employment anyway). But I do not really plan on just sitting on my ass, my wife and I have a few small business plans to keep us(mostly her) busy and I am just a helper as long as it doesn't interrupt my hobby and cocktail time....

Not meaning to pry, but is your ability to access such a plan based on native blood or something?

Meaning to say that a tourist can't just show up and sign up for this plan right? Seems very cheap...

No worries mate.. nah, it's because I have a spousal marriage Visa..

I think any long-term Visa (non-tourist) could get cheap health insurance...

Missus is telling me that Chinese are abusing the system...getting full service at hospitals/dentists, while paying minimum tax...

it's dependent on income...

Are there any Thai style massage parlours in Fukuoka dick?

Actually, I know an American guy (living here now) who made quite a successful career in Fukuoka, lived there well over 20 years. He loves the place.

Nice photos Dickie.

Yes, I was always surprised with how cheap stuff was given the reputation of the place.

Got a kilo of fresh sashimi at the market in Tokyo for 1000 yen in 2010

No Idea mate.. probably some hidden away somewhere... they do have a red-light district, but it's tame in comparison to sin city.

What did your mate do in Fukuoka?

Thanks Loo. Very cheap compared with Auckland, though from a previous poster, the USA is even cheaper (fruit and veges at least)... I know petrol is cheaper in America than here...

Import/export, some kind of specialty industrial chemicals. Actually he still does, on a smaller scale. He worked as an accountant for some sizable Jap firm for years, and kind of slipped into it. Interesting chap- Vietnam vet (navy), then completed his qualifications in the US, but hasn't lived there since.

Anyway, congrat's on your move mate- seems like a good place you're in.
