  2. I'm a big fan of Fraser's on Theppraya Road. Loads of good Western meals under 300 Baht as well as dialy and weekly specials. Love their Lamb Pita Pockets for a hearty bar snack.
  3. There are different types of Non B visa. You only need the specific WP3 invitation letter if you are planning to get a Non B for the purpose of then getting a work permit when you arrive. If you are just planning to get a Non B for the purpose of business meettings you just need a letter written by the Thai company director inviting you to visit them for the purpose of meetings. It can depend a little on which embassy you are applying to, on how strict the details need to be. A lot of embassies will want the letter to be on official company headed paper, with a company stamp, and signed b

    Great news, I expect Merc offered them a discount equivalent to a point to get him. Anything can happen in F1. Bottas has a contract for next year, Lewis doesn't......... I think Merc value Bottas highly. He does enough to get them the constructor points but is clearly unable to mount a season long challenge to Lewis. Why change that now for Russell. I suspect he's on the back burner for when Lewis quits but who knows.
  7. I am looking into obtaining the visa below for a few reasons ... Most important been writing the trip off as a business expense and secondly work remotely for myself Non-Immigrant Type B (Travelling to Thailand for business purposes e.g. meeting, exhibition - single and multiple entries) ( i know I would probably get away with a Non O but just exploring the possibilities) . I have been offered "Employment invitation from Ministry of labour department in Thailand WP3" for 45000 baht. Has anybody had experience of obtaining a non b visa and getting a A copy of i
  8. There is a lot I’m longing for in Pattaya and obviously most of it isn’t food but one place I miss frequently is BonChon Chicken in Central Festival. It’s a fast-casual place with the best fried chicken I ever had. Tried it the first time on a New Years Day hungover like never before and love it ever since. Can highly recommend!

    Turns out, not that unlikely. To be honest I also thought it would be a tough deal to make, Mercedes obviously see Russell as their next big driver, but I assumed it would be too tough to negotiate with WIlliams. The season felt like it was kind of over once Lewis sealed the win and ticked off the records, but this will inject some excitement to next weeked, for. If Russell outshines Bottas, could Mercedes be tempted to take on Russell for next season? Relegate Bottas to backup and give him the number 2 seat to learn from Lewis. Williams must be extremely tempted to snatch Perez

  14. The math is a little off - Marriott card earns Bonvoy points (.008) vs AMEX MR points (.02). You had an extra 0 in the MR.

  16. Thank you for this response. I see several mistakes I was making in my first look at this, namely that the Amex card I'm looking at (Marriott co-branded) earns me Marriott points (0.008) as opposed to Amex points (0.002), which changes the equation significantly. Re-doing my math, I'm seeing options that could work, but this also implies that I need to consider a two-pronged approach instead of just figuring out which hotel to spend my Chase points (which is where I started trying to research this): Chase + Amex non-hotel card: flights (which I haven't really researched yet, since pricing i

    Whoever it is will be interesting to see how they do in the 'best' car. Apparently they'll simply win I'd also love to see Russell given the shot but it's unlikely. Williams are without a point so far and though it's unlikely they'll score one in the next 2 races its definite that they won't if they don't have Russell in the car. Stoffel is the most likely candidate, Hulk an outside chance.
  19. I've asked a friend to do a few DTAC top-ups at the orange machines outside 7 or Family Marts. Usually I ask for 20 Baht several times but she always is generous and spends more. Can't seem to get it into her head that multiple small spends is what I want to get several months extension, 555. Building up quite a reserve on my account now. Anyone know if it can be done online for DTAC as Davidge does for AIS?
  20. Yeah, I use Line regularly for video calls to Thailand. I use WhatsApp occasionally too for local videocalls. Data mining is a fact of life I've become less worried about as time goes by. I'm mined, photographed and tracked every day in many ways. I had some issues with wi-fi and agree the quality of the call depends on connection and bandwitdth availability at both ends. I've noticed video quality is usually OK to good, but sometimes after a while sound quality decreases with echo and background noise. I just say I'll call back and start a new call. Not a good interruption though wh
  21. I don't consider myself an expert, but here's my take: You are comparing apples to oranges by comparing Marriott Bonvoy points to AMEX Membership Rewards (MR), Chase Ultimate Rewards (UR) and Citi Thank You (TY) points. AMEX MR, Chase UR and Citi TY are generally valued higher than hotel points because they can be readily transferred to airlines and used to book high priced business class seats. Marriott points typically are valued at .8 cents, well below the 2 cents for Chase UR and AMNEX MR (and the 1.7 cents for Citi TY). Keep in mind, the "valuations" are fairly arbitra

    With Lewis testing positive for Covid today, it will be interesting to see who takes his seat for the next weekend. Would love to see Russell given the chance to finish the season with Mercedes. Might be too hard to negotiate with Williams, but would be a great dress rehersal for him. He's been one of the best performers on the qualifying days, this season, but the Williams car is so far back from the competition he has almost no chance on race day. Would love to see him get a real crack at it. Maybe it's a bit wishful thinking, but I could see him out performing Bottas, and tempt Me
  23. You guys are far more advanced at the points game than I am; I'm trying to learn as much as possible while I'm stuck during this pandemic period. Please excuse the newbie question: My understanding is that Chase Sapphire and Amex points are both "valued" at 2c, which means that I should be shooting for a 2c value when I redeem points, and during a sale, you can "buy" Chase points for ~1.8c. But I'm having a hard time understanding how to actually get a 2c valuation. Background: I'm considering the Amex Marriott card next, as my first very high annual fee card. My assumption is that I

    Ghostland: An American History in Haunted Places BY COLIN DICKEY An intellectual feast for fans of offbeat history, Ghostland takes readers on a road trip through some of the country's most infamously haunted places - and deep into the dark side of our history. Colin Dickey is on the trail of America's ghosts. Crammed into old houses and hotels, abandoned prisons and empty hospitals, the spirits that linger continue to capture our collective imagination, but why? His own fascination piqued by a house hunt in Los Angeles that revealed derelict foreclosures and "zombie homes," Dic

    The Rise And Fall Of The Third Reich A History Of Nazi Germany (English) Hardcover - January 1, 1978 by William L. Shirer Since its publication in 1960, William L. Shirer's monumental study of Hitler's German empire has been widely acclaimed as the definitive record of this century's blackest hours. The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich offers an unparalleled and thrillingly told examination of how Adolf Hitler nearly succeeded in conquering the world. Shirer's unforgettable account of the pivotal characters and events of that critical era benefit from his many years as a repor

    What a difference Eric Cantona made for us back in the day. I've been thinking about that (hopeful) comparison with Edi, since we signed him and... man, that game winner just gave me goosebumps. He is EXACTLY what we needed. We have a game in hand, and if we were to win that, right now, we'd have 19 points, be tied for 3rd with Chelsea, and only 2 points off 1st/2nd Spurs/Liverpool...
  28. It seems to me that the scarcity of Westerners in Pattaya has encouraged many more Thai people to visit Pattaya and adjacent areas such as Jomtien and Wongamat/Naklua. I'm not talking about the big weekends designed to attract Thais. I'm talking about week days. Visiting the beaches and shopping centres around Pattaya I have noticed more Thai families enjoying the facilities. Maybe a cultural thing. While Westerners dominated the Pattaya scene, Thais were reluctant to intrude or possibly didn't like to mix with us. Now we are fewer in numbers Thais are visiting. Perhaps this is the future for
