    Am I a Bit Deaf? Could this be TRUE?

    I was listening to the English broadcast on Thai Radio from Bangkok tonight, and they reported that AIS had a "92%" yes..92% drop in profit from last month!

    Anyone else heard this? It seems one hell of a drop, I only ask as the arsehole that "tries" to read the news in his psuedo "American" accent, generally makes a mistsake with every sentence he spouts. If it's true...it's one hell of a drop!

    Telecommunication company part of Shin Corp. Advanced Info Service (AIS) is biggest mobile phone service company in Thailand. 1,2 Call and all that stuff.

    Thai news was correct. Slight correction is 4th quarter rather than last month.

    "Thailand's top mobile phone operator, Advanced Info Service PCL (AIS) ADVA.BK, reported a 92 percent fall in quarterly earnings on Wednesday due to weak consumer confidence and a goodwill write-off for a subsidiary's network."

    UPDATE 1-Thai AIS Q4 profit down 92 pct, tough 2009 seen | Reuters
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    It's a phone company, it provides a little bit of mobile coverage for Thailand, it's one of the things Thaksin sold that is getting him in the shit, (sold to Singapoor) It is the biggest Mobile provider in trhe whole of Thailand..are you on Orange or DTAC

    Advanced Info Services, generally they are pretty good, (but the twats charge about 50 baht to complain to their "help line"...they are a money making company, normally they reap huge profits, nice if it is true that they have dropped 92%, maybe we will get some decent deals!

    If you use these robbers, you cannot connect to any discounted international services, they have you by the scrotum!

    You can tune in Natioanlly from about 6.30pm until 7.30 pm, it somewhere around 98 -99.5 MHz, (you need to fiddle around "Slowly) Wher we are in Chiang Mai, it reverts to complete drivvel after 7.30, a program they call "Helping Hand" where they teach shit English to people who don't really want to learn.

    I took my niece there a few times but the stupid old goat "Trevor" (whoa was apparently a "Harley Street" Physician, could not remember, nor pronounce her name, but he, and his Japanese "mates" were willing to give you a hypnotism session to quit the fags etc... if you had ever read their promo brochure, you would have thought it was written by a a semi literate retard suffering from CJD....we no longer visit! (Check him out ..Saturday nights I believe he still is "allowed" to broadcast, should be put in a fucking home!

    And the Jap...well he couldn't teach English for love nor money, generally broadcasts on a Tuesday, his English would get him by, but he should never be allowed to destroy a childs brain with the shit that he excretes, but he has good taste in music!

    Sadly, "Trevor" our Harley St. Doctor prefers Skiffle, should I want to listen to George Fucking Formby playing the Poss Tub....well it won't be here!

    Thanks, Norton.

    That is a very big drop. LOS economy slowing down a lot?

    Japan, and Korea are. China is, even with its current GDP numbers.

    How rough is it in LOS?

    Who rough will it be this year?


    Anyone want to weigh in?

    teachers , dont even understand the basic of maths

    ex if you have a 10% interest on your 100 dollar it will give you a 10 dollar income of interest every year. Your profit will be 10 dollar.
    If the interest drop to 0,75% you still will have ,-call it a net frofit, but it will have dropped 92,5%, from 10 to 0,75%. From 10 dollar to 0,75 dollar
    But you still make a profit, even in times like this. It just sounds worse then it is

    And today my thai bit... have dropped me, she wanted car and house.
    What do you think about this, she said on the cell phone.
    I said i think you have been lying to me and now we must finsish.
    Any of you lads being with young internet babes, beware Hi5 and stuff, i belive alot of the girls use it to look for a bigger richer fool.
    Shes a young delicious babe but its ok, but i will miss the baby born on my birthday. Weird coincidence

    92% drop in revenues... This must mean that hi-so's and thai girls on the dole are the only ones using their cell phones... This is evidence that the average Thai is very concerned about the state of the economy in Thailand, or lack thereof...

    A 92% drop in profits is not the same as a 92% drop in income. It still means they are running at a profit unlike many other companies around the world today.

    It all depends what their profit margin on investment was before and how the trend pans out long term. Still, doesn't sound good though.

    'a goodwill write-off for a subsidiary's network."......did anyone bother to read this ??

    How much exacery was this goodwill writeoff ??

    Anything to do with Thaksin ?? or the problems associated ??

    Seems a fitting time for many companies to all of a sudden throw into the one basket all of the accumulated losses, bad eggs, problems and declare them now and blame the world instead of themselves.

    I go to cut some of the grass around my trees near the raod with the bush cutter, only to find a number of mindless cunts have thrown beer bottles, red bull bottles everywhere, the blade is blunt, I get a few cuts! Happy is not quite as happy before.

    Get a bit further across the land and take care of the Mango trees, only to find another [at][at][at][at] has thrown his shit everywhere, MAMMY POKO SIZE "M" and soiled.

    Then I find another [at][at][at][at] from the electric co. has drove his 12 ton truck over half a dozen of my Teak seedlings...I'am smiling a little at this point!

    Now I have some real 12 foot shit grass that has grown near the edge of our land..more like bamboo than grass, proceed to cut it with the weed whacker, and get attacked by a bunch of hornets, I have a couple of stings around my mouth that have deformed my face into something like the Elephant Man. And apparently, these bastards can kill you "Tor "something"Wan" ( They live in the ground, look like a small aeroplane and sting like fuck)

    So, tonight I get the full metal jacket, overcoat, gloves, boots, jacket, trousers in the pants, elastic bands on every opening, hat, hood, everything zipped up tight, and the wife gives me a pair of sunglasses for my eyes, and I have a T shirt strapped around my head... Brilliant, I am almost water tight!

    Get to where the nest is button everything down, fire up the Brush cutter, and the fucking sunglasses STEAM UP on the INSIDE, cannot wipe em, can you believe it, I cannot see a thing, there are fucking hornets everywhere, I can feel them whacking into me, and I cannot even see a foot in front of me, what a fucking disaster.

    Anyway abandon the eye protection and run like hell!

    So, yes sometimes I do get a bit pissed off, and angry,

    But to be honest, I only post the things that get me "riled", the rest of the day would be boring, who would be interested in how many new flowers my lime trees have?

    It's a vent, and it's good to be able to rant with Farang now and again, where I am. I never see an English speaker! (to talk to, properly...for years)

    Tomorrow, I PROMISE not to be angry, I am going to buy 10 litres of 'benzine 95 and will put a complete end to every fucking hornet within half a mile of me, I wouldn't care, I sprayed the bastards not two days ago with the most lethal poison I could buy, mixed with Roundup, but they came back, believe me, if you ever get stung by these fuckers, you will never go near them again, I got stung twice by those Tor Hua Sua, I had to "pick my arm up" the next day, it grew to twice the size, and couldn't even put it on the steering wheel of the car, and get a couple in the mouth....no thanks! the swelling is unbelievable!
