  1. Get a multimeter and check the voltage between phase and ground, if it's 230v it could actually be ground. It could of course also just be connected to neutral, would then also show 230v, no idea how to figure out if it's a real ground other than tracing the cable.
  2. Depends on the wording they use in the official Thai announcement. Does anybody have the official Thai announcement and can post it here? Maybe it does indeed say "resident", and somebody on a non-immigrant visa is just no resident under Thai immigration law.
  3. Which problem exactly? Just ask the hotel where you stay for a printout of the TM30 which they do online for you and take it to immigration when you apply for the extension
  4. According to Google the bike was only sold with 113cc. The bike did at least drop on the right side (bent lever) and it did slide on the left side (look at the main stand, a simple drop doesn't take so much material off) No idea if the price is good, but comparing a second hand Honda with a Suzuki is like comparing apples with oranges, a Honda has a significantly higher second hand price just because it's a Honda.
  5. Why would the premiums be halved? Hardly anybody costs the insurance companies over 50k. The premiums will probably stay the same, maybe reduced by a few percent.
  6. And back then nobody was arrested because they weren't considered as working in Thailand.
  7. Historically the Thai authorities interpretation of the rules has been that if you are doing work for a business abroad and it doesn't involve Thai people, then it isn't seen as working in Thailand (even if you are physically in Thailand), thus no work permit required.
  8. If you know for certain that you will leave after maximum 9 months the special tourist visa would be an option. But because you have the money in the bank already anyway getting a non-o + retirement extensio is also not really more difficult
  9. Wait until february and ask again, nobody here can predict the situation in a few months
  10. Looks like the Thai government disagrees with you, because they are offering a tourist visa which allows 9 months stay.
  11. While I'm in general somebody who prefers self medication and thinks doctors are a waste of time and money in many cases, I would advise against self medicating mental health issues. With some normal illness you do obviously notice if your symptoms get better or not, or if you have any side effects and can react accordingly. But with mental health issues you might not notice it and thus you need a professional to observe you.
  12. They don't have an expiration date, they merely state when you were vaccinated with what.
  13. Sometimes (has happened to me twice so far) customs doesn't open the parcel and forwards it to the post office, but wants you to come in and open it while they watch. Not every province even has a customs office though, so when I was staying in Udon Thani I had to go to customs in Nong Khai to get my parcel (130kms round trip or so).
  14. If the place where you got your vaccine is still in operation they should be able to change your passport number.
