      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is now up again and running after the upgrade - there is still the task of searching for updated versions of apps and plugins from the old version and then download, upgrade and configure    Please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.         Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. I would start by downloading one of those expense tracker apps. Just spend as normal and track it for a month. After you know what and where your spending is going you can set a realistic budget and see whats left for savings, travel and what can be eliminated.
  2. Probably not what you wana hear but I would say go back to school at home. You have no education, no work experience (that's relevant), presumably no language skills, etc. Not trying to be a dick here but even if you landed a job it would probably be a low paying dead end(no retirement, probably no healthcare, visa issues). IMO better to go back to school, acquire skills and work half the year at home(rotational) or look for a job with an international. No this wouldn't be taking the easy/fast route but would be a better long term plan. I'm assuming your young by reading your limited work experience.
  3. Ya I'll have to ask. My main page and bank book do have the correct name. It's the individual accounts in the online banking where the problem is.
  4. Transfer went through, thanks guys
  5. All my receipts from Kasikorn are 220b. My bank reimburses but still a rip off. Charles Schwab looks like this at the end of the month (2 transactions in Feb). I highly recommend them if you're American. 02/28/2017 ATMREBATE ATM Fee Rebate $12.58
  6. OK I just poked around on the online thing more. The welcome pages have correct spelling, the account name area is spelled wrong??????
  7. Hey guys, have any of you tried to make changes to your K bank account from abroad? Just noticed my bankbook is correct. But my last name is spelled wrong in my cyber banking(on the online page I can see from home). Can I change this from home? Will this effect transfers into this account from my home account? I am trying to set this up with my bank at home to transfer into Thai account to buy a cheap condo. I have to set this up from home. Can I correct the error on my cyber banking from home? Have any of you dealt with K bank customer service from abroad? Is this even worth messing with from home or is it hopeless till I get back to Thailand? Thanks
  8. I had no problem getting USD in Pattaya. My advice is get 10's or smaller if possible. It's hard to break bigger bills in smaller places in Cambodia.
  9. I went to the place across from Bic C extra(thought it was pro something). The one right by the soi Arunatai intersection. They told me they have start stop dates???? EDIT: I was at Pro Language, I'll check out Walden at the end of the month. Thanks
  10. I went and checked out a few schools on my last trip. I plan to spend 5 months a year in Pattaya. What I found, group lessons have a start/stop date. So for someone coming and going they don't really fit. If you do private lessons they can cater to your schedule. I couldn't find any group lessons that would fit my coming and going. I found private lessons to be around 350b/hr with a small discount if bought in blocks(but then your stuck W that teacher for the entire block of hrs). Way I figured it, 3 days a week, 2hrs a day was around 8k a month. This was for private lessons through a school. I looked into this before coming home in November. Haven't actually taken the lessons yet.
  11. I have went through airport scanners with 100+ notes countless times. 10 years bartending(living off cash tips) and just grabbed a handful and through them in the carry on with an additional 70 or so in the pocket. Never once has anyone said a word.
  12. It's hard to get change there, tuktuk, food, mini mart etc. I took a couple hundred in 10's and wished I had more small bills(this was about 7 years ago).
  13. Well yes and no. Thing is they are condos and there is a lot of verity. So you could get a run down POS or a nice well maintained condo(be it small). My advice is don't rent site unseen over the internet. Go look at the actual condo, the building and the facilities(pool totally rundown). I consider Nirun a good value but it's certainly not perfect. My neighbor in Oct was paying 4500b for a nice unit on a year contract. I was paying 5k month to month. If money is a concern it's kinda hard to beat, if quality is more important to you than budget well it can be beat almost anywhere(though you will probably be paying more). I wouldn't live there withought a bike. Too far from the BB IMO, though there are lots of guys that live there who don't have bikes.
  14. had to geta new Kassikorn card in May(expired). I was told pin now must be 6 didgets.
