  1. Picture: Siam Rath Sanook reported that Pol Lt Siriyakorn Khongpetchsak of the Nong Prue police was alerted to a fire at a luxury home in Moo 13 yesterday at around 1.30 pm. Three fire engines from the Nong Prue brigade attended the scene at a house worth 20 million baht, reported Sanook. Both the downstairs and upstairs were alight but firefighters managed to restrict the damage and had the blaze under control within 30 minutes. The 58 year old Canadian owner of the property alerted the authorities to the fire and was pictured at the scene by Siam Rath. Picture: Siam Rath Sanook noted that the living room area was a blackened shell with a grand piano taking the brunt of the blaze. Picture: Sanook Fireman Siriwat Prajit said that water was used to control the fire before it spread further. A short circuit is suspected.

  9. SPONSORED BY by Rooster | ASEAN NOW Waking on Sunday morning after the horror of the previous night was torture. I wanted to crawl back under the covers and ignore the world for a few days. The disappointment was that bad following England's 1-2 defeat to France. I tried to grab a crumb of solace from the idea that other Englishmen and women spread far and wide on this great globe would be feeling pain commensurate with my own. It still hurt. What was I going to say to my daughter, a fresh nine year old convert to The Beautiful Game. In reality I think I'd already said it all during the match. Begging repeatedly over and over for Harry not to miss and when he didn't running around the living room like a 61 year old loony on the loose from Sri Thanya. The heads in hands moments when a defender then a former Ars*nal player scored. The injustice! But nothing will ever compare to the brutality of the ending. A personal hero blazing over, his kick into the England fans. My heart went out to the great man, I think that's what saved it from being broken. Both me and Mrs Rooster had barely been able to look let alone sit down for the penalties. My daughter looked on as I held my head in my hands and wailed "Oh No!" about ten times. Fortunately soon after waking on Sunday I got a text from a US buddy who asked about the match and offered "lake therapy". The whole family headed out for swimming, boating, tubing and eating - to name but four activities. Dad especially could put all football angst aside so thanks to my Packers' mate for the most welcome therapy a desperate Englishman could want for. I realized England's future is very good, France will lose to Morocco for absolute sure and it was time to get back on the horse. Go Rooster! Tonight's first semi-final match is Argentina vs Croatia at 2am in the morning Thai time. It is of course being billed as Messi and Modric's last chance saloon. I'm not expecting Croatia to come out all guns blazing in this showdown before dawn. I expect them to keep their powder dry and soak up a bit of Argie ammunition. Then I expect some counter attack from the silky boot of magical Modric into the path of Perisic who fools everyone by laying it into the path of an advancing teammate to score. I can't be more specific. But it'll be 1-0. Of course Messi should have plenty to say about that. He'll be aware that with all the CR7 shenanigans this year his stock as being the greater of the two is higher than ever. If he could put that missing cherry on the top of a stellar career then many of the doubters may admit Ronaldo must play second fiddle. Rooster -- © Copyright ASEAN NOW 2022-12-13
  10. YOUR GUIDE TO THE FIFA WORLD CUP 2022 By Editor Fans and football teams have arrived in Qatar, as the Middle Eastern country prepares to host the World Cup 2022, which will start on Sunday 20th November. Qatar, a country of less than three million people, was awarded the right to host the global 32-team competition in 2010. More than 1.2 million fans are expected to visit the Gulf country during the tournament. In Thailand, free-to air coverage of all matches has finally been agreed and while the nation did not qualify for the tournament, Thais are expected to wager up to $US1.6bn on the games, according to researchers at the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce. Thai anti-gambling advocates are concerned about an anticipated surge in betting during the Qatar World Cup. Under Thailand’s 1935 gambling law, betting is illegal outside of the official lottery and a small number of horse racing tracks. About FIFA World Rankings Brazil is the current world number one heading into the 2022 World Cup. The South American giants have held top spot since March 31 this year when they replaced Belgium, who themselves were top for nearly four years. Surprisingly, the team ranked number one going into the World Cup has never won the tournament. Rankings have only been active since the 1994 World Cup, where Germany went in as leaders only to be replaced by eventual winners Brazil. In 1998, Brazil were still number one but were beaten 3-0 by France in that year’s World Cup final. France was then top during the 2002 World Cup only for Brazil to bounce back and lift the title. Brazil was world number one going into the 2006 and 2010 tournaments but Italy and Spain both triumphed on those occasions. Spain was then top going into 2014 when Germany triumphed, who themselves were number one in 2018 when France took out the title. Group Roundup Group A: With an average world ranking of 30, and a spread of 48 ranking places between strongest and weakest, Group A seems the weakest. The Netherlands (8th), should sail through. Senegal (18th) should see off Ecuador (44th). Qatar (50th) have a home advantage – and when players have experience playing in the Middle East’s conditions, this could count for a lot. Group B: The toughest group of all due to the average world ranking of 15 and a spread of just 15 places. It is also the tightest and most competitive. England (5th) must be considered a serious challenger for the trophy. But there could be fireworks, as England take on their neighbours, Wales (19th), and USA (16th) face off against geopolitical rival Iran (20th). Yet, mere statistics don’t equal results on the pitch. Group 😄The group has an average world ranking of 23.25 and a spread of 48 places. Argentina (9th) will be among the tournament favourites but to get there, they’ll need to see off Mexico (13th), as well as Poland (26th) and Saudi Arabia (51st). Group 😧The next toughest pool has an average world ranking of 20.5 and a spread of 34 positions. France (4th) and Denmark (10th) will likely see off Tunisia (30th) and Australia (38th) but the European teams will need to ensure their consistency through the early stages of the tournament. Group E: This group has an average world ranking of 18.25 and a spread of 24 ranking places. Spain (7th) and Germany (11th) will likely be favourites to top Group E, but Japan (24th), semi-finalists in 2002, can’t be written off. With Costa Rica (31st), expect a strong challenge from all in this group. Group F: The Belgians may not spring to mind as one of the world’s top footballing nations, but they are currently ranked second in the world. And in a group with an average world ranking of 19.25 and a spread of 39 places, the Red Devils should face no problem getting through. Croatia (12th) will be in hot pursuit, while Morocco (22nd) and Canada (41st) may struggle to get to the later stages of the competition. Group G: This group has an average world ranking of 20 and a spread of 42 ranking positions. Brazil (1st) are legends of the game and the most successful national team in the history of the World Cup with five titles. Switzerland (15th), Serbia (21st) and Cameroon (43rd) do not ensure this group’s destiny is written yet, with the Serbians’ dogged tenacity and the flair of Cameroon being crucial to their chances. Group H: Weighing in with an average world ranking of 28 and a spread of 52 rankings, Group H is the second weakest. Portugal (9th), Uruguay (14th) and South Korea (28th) will be pushing hard for the knockout spots. Ghana (61) will be lucky to progress. Match Schedule Thailand Time A total of 48 matches will be played in the group stage between 32 teams. Every team will play 3 games and has to win at least 2 matches to confirm its seat in the next round. 16 matches will be played in the knockout round. If any team loses that team will be out of the world cup. This is the toughest part of the tournament because there is no second chance. Thailand time zone is GMT+7 and Qatar’s time zone is GMT+3. Therefore Thailand is 4 hours ahead of Qatar.

  12. Daily News Thai Caption: Get your visa in 3 minutes Thailand's Immigration Bureau has unveiled plans for an ambitious new online visa extension project. Expats will be able to extend their visas within just three minutes slashing waiting times. RTP national chief Pol Gen Damrongsak Kittipraphat said that the e-Extension would enhance visa services as extension requests can be lodged online. The new service encompasses the whole process including fee payment via a dedicated website, Thaiextension.vfsevisa.com. Damrongsak claimed that the new process will reduce application process times from one hour to three minutes. The e-Extension comes after former Royal Thai Poliuce chief Pol Gen Suwat Chaengyodsuk moved to modernize systems for the benefit of the public, reported Daily News yesterday. A pilot project will run for expats living and working in Bangkok according to 12 reasons. However, they must still show up in person to verify their identity and get a visa sticker at the main IB office at the Government complex on Chaeng Wattana Road. Plans are in the pipeline to expand the service to all IB offices nationwide in the future. The 12 reasons/areas are for: 1. Tourism purposes. 2. Teachers at public schools 3. Studying at public schools 4. Working in government agencies 5. For original Thai people 6. Resident families 7. Mass media 8. Teaching and research in government agencies 9. Installing and repairing machinery 10. Medical experts. 11. Vehicle operators 12. Embassy requests. There are currently 200,000 requests under those 12 criteria annually and that is only going up especially in Bangkok. Applications can be made via phone or computer. According to Daily News the system has been in place since October 10th and has received rave reviews. -- © Copyright ASEAN NOW 2022-11-09 - Cigna offers a range of visa-compliant plans that meet the minimum requirement of medical treatment, including COVID-19, up to THB 3m.

  15. I am sure many of you read last week, about the Thai insurance company called Southeast Asia Insurance that was unable to meet its commitments and filed to cease trading. Certainly, many of us were concerned in case other companies may go the same way. The latest information is that Thailand’s insurance business regulator has indicated that approval has not been granted for Southeast Asia Insurance to cease operations and that all existing insurance policies are still valid. The Office of Insurance Commission (OIC) explained that Southeast Asia Insurance filed for the termination of its business with the OIC, but approval has yet to be granted. The office has established a working committee to scrutinize relevant details, with the aim of preserving the benefits of insurance policyholders and other stakeholders as well as ensuring the legality of the move. General Insurance Fund The OIC noted that the General Insurance Fund exists to protect those entitled to payment in accordance with insurance claims in cases where an insurance company’s license is revoked. The fund is also intended to foster stability and reliability for the insurance business. The office said the fund does not cover cases of an insurance company ceasing its operations but assured that public concern was unwarranted. It explained that Southeast Asia Insurance cannot shut down or cease operations until it receives approval to do so from the OIC, adding that all current insurance policies are still valid. Well, if the Thai General Insurance Fund will not cover insurance companies that go bankrupt before their licence is revoked, then where does that leave us? Major Operation If I have understood their last comment correctly, if I am presented with a large bill by my private hospital, how am I as an expat likely to know in advance if my selected insurance company is in financial difficulties? With the current wave of claims for Covid, governments around the world are likely to have to eventually cover the shortfalls. However, as insurance companies try to balance their books, increasingly genuine cases may be turned down just on a minor condition. I bet most insurance companies have much more staff dealing with claims, than those in the sales departments, who sell us these expensive packages in the first place. Is it financially viable? With preconditions and clauses stating the insured must pay the first amount of costs, I wonder sometimes is it worth it. Of course, most expats have insurance cover before they came to Thailand. Others feel that if they wish to travel, regulations state you need insurance to reenter Thailand. Therefore, many policies are bought for political reasons, rather than for insurance peace of mind. What do you feel about the current system in Thailand? -- © Copyright ASEAN NOW 2022-02-03 - Aetna offers a range of visa-compliant plans that meet the minimum requirement of medical treatment, including COVID-19, up to THB 3m.
