No I didn’t know it was for that reason. I just assumed it was an upgrade to ensure that when the biblical floods of Bangkok arrived, people would still be able to drink. It’s spoiled it for me. Now I know that, it’s the last time I stay at the Royal suite in either of those hotels
These types of Visas are not for someone in your position Bob.
You can obtain a single entry Non Imm O Visa to enter Thailand, then apply to extend your stay each year (1,900 BHT) based on Thai spouse. 400K THB in a Thai bank in your sole name for 2 months prior to each application for a 1 year extension of stay.
Oh sorry to worry you. Yes I forgot about the guys and the Nana hotel girls. You see some of the walking back and forward a few times sizing the girls up and then they make the deal . I wouldn’t be surprised if we have seen each other. I’ve been there more times than I care to count. I’m the good looking guy you see there
They might have jurisdiction to investigate that time frame, but they no longer have jurisdiction to do so from inside the Philippines. It makes a difference. They also now lack the power to punish him. Regardless the Philippine people love the guy and the majority of them support his policy. Isn't he now running for vice president of the Philippines? Think of it as when Medvedev became president of Russia and Putin became PM. Hate to say, but the guy is going to skate on this.
