  1. Loved the pics, I didnt take any as I knew you wouldn't let us down Dies anyone kniw the final results? GF reckoned Philippines should win... But she is a Filipina!!
  2. My thoughts as well. 7 years ago got a Resident Retirement Visa in Philippines. Its a Lifetime visa, no reporting, no annual extensions etc. Never been in an IO in the 7 years. Spend 5 months a year in Pattaya as a tourist
  3. So what has this peaceful approach achieved in the last 20 years? Does anyone actually believe that China will take any notice of a peaceful protest. Didnt they just ignore a UN resolution on the disputed south china sea islands, sending more ships and expanding their take over.
  4. Mydelf and my lovely lady will be attending on the 18th and looking forward to it
  5. In 10+ years in Thailand I never had a Thai woman live with me. I never really trusted them but to be fair I was meeting P4P girls. Then in the Phillipines I met a lovely woman who was a keeper, took the plunge and still together 7 years later. Divide our time between both places, which she loves and no regrets from me
  6. When my son was 12 he loved to watch Dave on oz Tv. Read that he was coming to our city so saved his pocket money to buy a ticketand he and a mate went. I had rung DA assistant and told her about them. She met them at the theatre, took them to his dressing room where he sat them diwn and chatted to them both A very funny man but more importantly a caring person. 34 years later my son still remembers this kindness
  7. Wasn't she actually in a unit on the wrong floor?
  8. "and what is illegal about using an agent if you legally comply with the police orders," Nothing, and I imagine a lot of guys do to save time. But if you read my post none of the 6 I mentioned can legally qualify. One married pensioner doesn't even have the income for a marriage extension. I assume that some "tea money" is involved and the agent virtually confirmed as much
  9. And if one of these unlicensed drivers runs into you, guess who pays? If there are zero consequences for being legal, why bother.
  10. Of course they are involved in the racket One of the agents in my earlier post told his customer not to be concerned about the new requirements as his Immigration contact would ensure that his customers were taken care of.
  11. I know 6 people in Pattaya who use agents, none of them would qualify if they didnt
  12. Yes, also used here in the Philippines and it caused me some confusion. Also they don't have a "ground" floor in buildings so they start at the first floor.... Which is at ground level. Screwed up a few FL meetups with that one
  13. How true, different requirements, often from different IO in the same office. Makes me wonder if they are too stupid to learn their own documented rules or just like to give folks a hard time
  14. Perhaps because it doesn't seem to work for a lot of people who use forums to air its shortcomings?
  15. Unfortunately we leave on the 18th for a week in KL before heading to Philippines for Christmas. Disappointed to miss it
