  1. Spot on. Good post. Exactly why I stated to the OP that banks here are satisfactory, yet nowhere close to parity with western banks. Still use passbooks here. Those went obsolete at least 3 decades ago in advanced countries. Have to return to original branch (of the same bank brand!) to get a new, 3 decades useless passbook and to renew debit card. To do most anything important or necessary, even if you live 1000 km away. Number of copies and signatures is ridiculous overkill.
  2. Obviously you are a personal who makes broad stroke accusations, takes wild leaps and assumptions without a shred of evidence or knowledge upon whom you are casting your unwarranted aspersions. An ignorant, presumptuous and asinine way to conduct oneself IMO.
  3. OK...here ya go. Ask and you shall receive! Great you got your money refunded, as any reputable bank in the world would do. But STOP with the Thailand apologetics. So what.???....the largest and most well-known bank in Thailand did the right thing is no monumental achievement. It's proper and common business, yet you somehow feel the entire country deserves a blowie now. Bangkok Bank and others doing the proper thing does not magically absolve this entire Idiocracy. Thailand gets bashed 'cuz it DESERVES to be bashed. Not much Bangkok Bank bashing that I'm aware. Have ac
  4. True...way too much salt and sugar in processed foods. However...processed sugar is terrible. For all the salt naysayers... Salt plays a crucial role in maintaining human health. It is the main source of sodium and chloride ions in the human diet. Sodium is essential for nerve and muscle function and is involved in the regulation of fluids in the body. Sodium also plays a role in the body's control of blood pressure and volume.
  5. Let it go. Thread is dead as all the god proposals. No resurrection coming for The King Of The Threads either.
  6. SHOCKED and pleasantly surprised to read they are stepping up and refunding the victims money.
  7. Usually fresh fruit...mango, papaya, pineapple, dragon fruit and banana. Occasionally multigrain toast & jam. Always fresh brewed coffee.
  8. Yes, understood. Exactly why my post specifically stated 'some', not all. Regardless, truly sux you got clipped and glad to hear the bank is refunding, as they should of course.
  9. Reading the full article, some of these people fell for the oldest online tricks in the book. Clicking on links and/or responding to email and SMS from uncertain sources. Sometimes they look very authentic, but the proper action is to securely access through app or official website. It's called "phishing" and has been warned about for 25 years.
  10. Get the Happy Cow app. It's a must have for veg/vegans. Here's a list of those I know are open. 1. Yes! Vegan (lovely little place. Excellent fine dining but a bit pricey) 2. Tien Sin Vegetarian Food. Lunch Only. (excellent and cheap) Shows as T&I on Google Maps 3. 5 Star J (pretty good, expensive. However farang owner is a piece of sh...work. Many people stopped going because of him. I haven't gone in 7 or 8 years. Prior to him taking over, was there daily for lunch) There was a great veg stall in Pier 21 Food Court at Terminal 21. Excellent and laughably
