  1. My wife needs proof that she paid for something a few years ago, so she went to kasikorn bank to request a bank statement from that specific period. The account had been closed a year ago but that shouldn't matter. Clerk: "No hab!" Supervisor: "mai mee!" Manager: "sent to vault, buried very deep, cannot get". Banks are legally obligated to keep all financial records for 10 years, at least in my country! I suppose it's the same in Thailand. What can we do? Get a lawyer involved? This is exactly one of the reasons why we left Thailand, the incompetence, the laziness a
  2. Yeah, i've considered it but the car already lost 65 ~ 70% of its value since we bought it new 9 years ago. Wife also has a hard time letting go of material things... haha.

The Michelin tires which we purchased 3 years ago (only driven for 2000km) already show some small cracks, probably d

Call me weird but i enjoyed strolling in those gigantic complexes, people watching, being called hansum, having a bite and then watch a movie at SF cinema or major cinema. I just stumbled upon a few video's on youtube about some guys walking through the malls like MBK, paragon, central word, emporium etc. It looks so dead, with sometimes an eerie feeling to it. Do Thai not visit the malls anymore because of fear to catch COVID, or simply because of economic reasons? I know most of you
