» Maid Employment - No Cellphone
Aug 21, 2014 - 12:29 AM - by Looper
Very strange. My erstwhile flipper GF from Phuket, back in Phils for a while now, has been recruited by a maid service and has a placement in Penang with an Indian couple. One of the conditions of her employment is that she may not possess a mobile phone?

Sounds a bit dodgy to me.

Has anybody heard of this restriction before for maid employment?
» Not bored at all in Phnom Penh
Aug 20, 2014 - 11:45 AM - by pseudolus
I was in PP at the same time as the bored bloke. How can you be bored? Weird.

Anyway, the reason for the trip was a change in Visa rules effective 1st August which meant I had to leave the country for my non imm b regardless of having 11 month of work permit and not had to do this before. Maybe I left it too late? Who cares.

So I flew out on Saturday. Business class on TG was 17,100 baht, but when I got to Swampy I realised I had been chucked onto Thai Smile! And... [Read More]

» Extremely bored in Phnom Penh, help!
Aug 16, 2014 - 4:33 AM - by Baas Babelaas
Got to PP last night and visited S21 and the Killing Fields - for all of an hour. Was bored stiff (excuse the pun, no disrespect intended)

The road to the KFs are rotten, and I actually got tuk tuk-sick.

Is there anything to do in this godforsaken city.

Was thinking about a gander by the river and visiting the Foreign Correspondents Club (correct name?)

Not a fuck interested in Wats, palaces, etc.

This city sucks balls... [Read More]
» Day Trip to Chai Badan, Lopburi Province
Aug 14, 2014 - 10:58 PM - by Sumocakewalk
Last weekend was a long 4 day holiday weekend for Thais, culminating with Mother's Day on Tuesday, August 12. My wife gets public holidays off in her line of work, so we had some time to kill over the weekend. On Saturday, we took a day trip to Pathum Thani, which I posted briefly about in the farang pad thai news story (Farang Pad Thai Vendor Charms Local... [Read More]
» Suggestions On Locations Please
Aug 14, 2014 - 10:01 PM - by Monk213
hello all.

A brief background I am in my mid 20s and have been living in Thailand and a little in Malaysia for the past 5 years. I am in between fluent and 'getting by' with the Thai language, so I can hold a conversation pretty easily.

However things have changed rapidly here and I wish to relocate to Laos. Some would suggest a trip first, but that would or should have been the case when I first came here 5 years ago but that turned out fine, I haven't left Asia... [Read More]
» Taxi Scamming
Aug 14, 2014 - 10:43 AM - by Nabeel
Despite what we read in the news today, the Taxi's at Swampy are still trying the old meter scam.

Arrived at 6pm yesterday, with 2 Thai friends and acquired a taxi from the rank on the ground level. Hidden by a cloth was the meter reading 127 baht as we pulled away!!!!

Couple of quick words from my friends....lots of apologises and it was reset to the standard start of 37. Then he wondered and asked for a the guy real.

We posted the taxi... [Read More]
» Another damn/dumb Cambo visa question
Aug 12, 2014 - 10:50 PM - by Baas Babelaas
So, I have a renewable 'business' visa for Cambo, which if not extended will expire 31st August.

If I were to extend it, for say 3/6/12 months before I left Cambo to go to HK, could I come back into Cambodia on the extended visa?
» Decent hotel in central/river side PP for $20-35/night?
Aug 12, 2014 - 5:42 AM - by Baas Babelaas
I'll be in PP in a couple days for a few days.

Nothing special planned - might try to get my China visa there, see the S21 and the fields.

Any reccos on hotels and things to do/see?

Saw a decent hotel called Silver River Hotel for about $25/night.

Wouldn't mind doing some urban exploring too.

Ideas esteemed forum-people?

» Phitsanulok, Nakon Sawan, Lopburi Run July 2014
Aug 11, 2014 - 11:29 AM - by terry57
Ok, This is just a light weight thread to try out the new software regards loading up picture threads. A few weeks ago I hit the above towns for a look see, only been to Lopburi previously. The trip was bought on simply because AirAsia had a silly fare consisting of a one way flight to Phitsanulok for 800 Baht. So I flew up and worked my way back to Bangkok by Train and Bus. I love doing these trips exploring new towns just plebing around being a nasty farang tourist, just walk around... [Read More]

Never having been to Cornwall before and somewhere always wanted to see booked a week in a static caravan/mobile home or whatever they called in Mullion on the Lizard Peninsula, details of the holiday park and caravans here if anyone interested.

» Access to Khao Phra Viharn (Preah Vihear) from Thai side
Aug 06, 2014 - 12:24 PM - by mangkut
Can anybody here confirm the current status? Is it possible to visit the temple from Thai side at the moment?

I was lucky enough to visit this beautiful place twice. First time from Cambodian side shortly after they finished the new road from Siem Riap (ca 2003?)
Second time from Thai side (drove up to the border from Ubon) mid 2007.

I would love to go from Thai side again and wonder if this is possible.
It seems the border conflict cooled down?

» Warning for anyone who walks their dogs in Mabrachan Lake
Aug 03, 2014 - 11:04 AM - by pseudolus
Distemper is currently wiping out all the dogs up there. It is devastating for us and the other people who have been trying to help these dogs.

There is no cure, so if you dog is not vaccinated or up to date, stay the hell away for at least 3 months. A dog that manages to fight this off will still be infectious for up to 3 months and there will be no visible signs.

If you have taken your dog there and they have come into contact with ANY dog up there or even been in... [Read More]

» Got me an extendable 'business visa' I think..?
Aug 01, 2014 - 2:15 AM - by Baas Babelaas
Flew into Siem Reap today and applied for the $25 visa that can be extended for up to a year.

The immigration officer eyed me suspiciously and asked why. I said because I might be travelling for longer than a month and I might be helping out a friend at his restaurant in Snookyville.

He took the $25, my visa was processed and it is marked 'E' instead of 'T', which I take it means extendable, not tourist visa?

But it does also say 'single entry',... [Read More]

» Spaying attempt failed
Jul 26, 2014 - 10:09 PM - by Sumocakewalk
We took our dog Bonnie to the local vet today to have the spaying procedure done. It is the same vet that we've taken another dog and a cat to and everything went as expected before. Not so in today's attempt.

After we dropped Bonnie off for the surgery, we headed out to do some shopping and returned an hour later expecting her to be stitched up and ready to take home. When we got there, the vet informed us that he could not complete the procedure, even though he had opened... [Read More]
