laboured work permits: have you got one, do you need one?

hua hin, THAILAND There is an increasing number of business ventures being undertaken by non-Thais in Hua Hin and in Thailand generally, and correspondingly more and more foreigners requiring work permits. There are also increasing numbers who have skilled jobs working for companies that obtain these vital documents for them, and they should be thankful as the process and paperwork required is long and hefty. Consequently there are often some who either don’t know they require a permit, or a few who take a chance of not being caught. That risk is too high for most, as it can lead to large fines and deportation in the worst cases, but there are still regular visits made by police to businesses where they think they might catch someone out, and this week it appears as though another round of these visits has started. Sometimes the police will have had a tip off, other times it will be a visit to a place where a permit was previously held, and even for those who have all their paperwork in order there can be an intimidatory air about proceedings, similar to that when other checks are made such as on music licences in bars. The puzzling thing for many foreigners running businesses here is that no matter how hard they try to abide by the rules, and how many local people get gainful employment from their efforts, they feel as if they are being picked on because they are ‘farang’; however Thai run businesses also get these visits, under suspicion of perhaps employing someone from Myanmar without the required paperwork. However tempting it may be to try and ‘beat the system’ ultimately it behoves all of us to abide by the rules, and when the Asian Economic Union is formed in 2015 there will be even greater scruting on those working inside it who come from countries outside of it.

stories running to stand still By Roger Norwood Every now and again I feel it is my duty to give not just my opinion on matters in Thailand, but also some useful information for both expats and tourists visiting the country, and this week’s column is one of those occasions. The ‘visa run’ can be an enjoyable trip when only needed occasionally, but it can become a chore, so anything that reduces the time and expense required to carry it out is always welcome news. For many years foreigners in the Hua Hin area have really only had one viable option for their run, which is down to Ranong (on the way to Phuket), and go across the border to Myanmar, which is a good 14 hour plus round trip depending

on the form of transport taken. There have been rumours for years that the Myanmar border at Dan Singkhon near Prachuap Kiri Khan would be opened for foreigners, and while the prospect is edging closer, it is still not possible to do a visa run there yet. Another alternative has appeared now though, and this is the crossing at Nam Ron, west of Kanchanaburi. While I have not been there myself, all the reports say that unless you already have a visa for Myanmar, this will cost a fee of 700 baht paid at the Thai side, and you will not physically cross the border yourself, but an immigration officer will take your passport across for you and do the necessary. By all accounts this is about a 250

kilometre drive from Hua Hin taking around 4 hours in each direction, so a decent saving of time and money, despite the more expensive border fee, which is normally 500 baht. No doubt someone will start a visa run service to this border from Hua Hin in due course, if they haven’t already, while others can combine the run with a trip to Kanchanaburi, as this has more and better accommodation options than are at the border itself, and be warned that there is very little either side of the border! If you have been to this crossing why not share your experience and information on the AWOL Forum at, along with any other tips that others would find useful.

pennsylvania, usa Police pull four bracelets, four necklaces, 11 rings and bag of weed from man’s rectum Even the most experienced police staff on one force were left stunned by this unusual case of stolen jewellery. A drink-drive investigation took a strange turn when an implausible amount of stolen were goods were discovered in a teenager’s rectum. A total of four bracelets, four necklaces, 11 women’s rings, a socket for a smoking wrench and a bag of weed were found to be hidden inside Christopher Scheller. The 18-year-old was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after crashing his car in Heidelberg, Pennsylvania, in December, according to a police report. ‘The officer found evidence that the driver may be intoxicated and responded to York Hospital to meet with Scheller,’ it added. ‘When medical staff performed a medical X-ray of Scheller, they found an abnormality in his rectum. Scheller at first did not want the object removed- but eventually consented. ‘After the officer investigated this strange occurrence, it was determined that the items were stolen from a residence in Heidelberg.’ The teen was arrested on a host of charges including theft, receiving stolen property and driving under the influence.

england Woman tries to sue lawyers because they failed to tell her a divorce settlement would end her marriage A British woman tried to sue her former lawyers because they failed to tell her the divorce settlement she wanted would cause the end of her marriage. Jane Mulcahy attempted to take action against two law firms that she had used, saying they did not make it clear what the outcomes of her divorce proceedings would be. It is believed Ms Mulcahy is Catholic and that her lawyers had not taken her faith into account, the Independent reported. She claims that judicial separation, which is less severe than divorce, should have been recommended instead. The details of the attempted legal action were revealed at an appeal court hearing after Ms Mulcahy objected to the outcome of her original case. Lord Justice Briggs, who presided over the appeal proceedings, said that Ms Mulcahy’s claim was a ‘striking’ one and her case was rejected by the court.

A section for all you budding etymologists where each week the origin of a word or phrase is investigated. This week it is..... Get off on the wrong foot Make a bad start to a project or relationship. This has the sound of an old expression - from Shakespeare, the Bible or similar. Shakespeare did use the notion of a ‘better’ foot (which implies a wrong foot) in King John, 1595: KING JOHN: Nay, but make haste; the better foot before. O, let me have no subject enemies, When adverse foreigners affright my towns With dreadful pomp of stout invasion! Be Mercury, set feathers to thy heels, And fly like thought from them to me again. Richard Harvey, in Plaine Perceuall the peace-maker of England, 1590, is the first to record the wrong foot in print: “Thou putst the wrong foote before.” Despite the implication otherwise in the phrase put your best foot forward we only have two choices, so if there’s a wrong foot there has to be a right one too and get off on the right foot is also in common use. How did these phrases originate? Well, we don’t know. It may be that it comes from the long-standing preference people have for the right. Most people in all cultures are right-handed and in English at least the bias is part of the language. We have right and left and right and wrong, tends to associate left and wrong. That association is built into the language in the way that we have taken the Latin for left - sinister, to mean dark and suspicious. There are various disparaging terms for use of the left that demonstrate this bias - cack-handed, goofy-footed etc. There is a suggestion that it in ancient Greece it was considered unlucky to put the left foot on to the floor, or into one’s shoe, first. Brewer records this in his Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, 1898. There’s no supporting evidence for that view, so here is what Brewer had to say here:

It was thought unlucky to enter a house or to leave one’s chamber left foot foremost. Augustus was very superstitious on this point. Pythagoras taught that it is necessary to put the shoe on the right foot first. “When stretching forth your feet to have your sandals put on, first extend your right foot” (Protreptics of Iamblichus, symbol xii.). Iamblichus tells us this symbolised that man’s first duty is reverence to the gods. Another suggestion is that the concept of a right foot and a wrong foot comes from the military, where in order to march in step soldiers all have to start with the same foot.

Dai the hill farmer A hill farmer named Dai was overseeing his stock in a remote mountain valley in Wales when suddenly a brand-new BMW 4x4 advanced out of the nearby wood. The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and a YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the old farmer, ‘If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will you give me a calf?’ Dai looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing animals and calmly answers, “Sure, why not boyo?” The yuppie parks his 4x4, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his Cingular Bluetooth cell phone and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo. The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg , Germany . Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and after a few minutes, receives a response. Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns to the farmer and says, “You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves.” “That’s right. Well boyo, I reckon you can take one of my calf’s,” says Dai. He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as he stuffs it into the boot of his car. Then Dai says, “Look you, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?” The young man thinks about it for a second and then says, “Okay, why not?” “You’re a Member of Parliament with the British Government,” says Dai. “Wow! That’s correct,” says the yuppie, “but how did you guess that?” “No guessing required boyo,” answered the farmer, “you showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me you are and you don’t know a thing about cows ... this is a flock of sheep ... now give me back my Border Collie!”

the law (thanks to Terry) A young Law student, having failed his Law exam, goes up to his crusty old professor, who is renowned for his razor-sharp legal mind. Student: “Sir, do you really understand everything about this subject?” Professor: “Actually, I probably do. Otherwise I wouldn’t be a professor, would I?” Student: “OK. So I’d like to ask you a question. If you can give me the correct answer, I will accept my mark as it is. If you can’t give me the correct answer, however, you’ll have to give me an “A”. Professor: “Hmmmm, alright. So what’s the question?” Student: “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal?” The professor wracks his famous brain, but just can’t crack the answer. Finally he gives up and changes the student’s failing mark into an “A” as agreed, and the student goes away, very pleased. The professor continues to wrack his brain over the question all afternoon, but still can’t get the answer. So finally he calls in a group of his brightest students and tells them he has a really, really tough question to answer: “What is legal but not logical, logical but not legal, and neither logical nor legal?” To the professor’s surprise (and embarrassment), all the students immediately raise their hands. “All right” says the professor and asks his favourite student to answer “It’s quite easy, sir” says the student “You see, you are 75 years old and married to a 30 year old beautiful woman, which is legal, but not logical. Your wife has a 22 year old lover who wants to marry her, which is logical, but not legal. And your wife’s lover failed his exam, but you’ve just given him an “A”, which is neither legal, nor logical.”

This is becoming as much of an annual occurance as the queue for Harrods sale. Last year saw the demise of HMV music stores, Comet electricals, Jessops photographic stores, and Blockbuster video rentals, while doom and gloom forecasts for 2014 include the likes of Debenhams department stores and Mothercare.

It is fair to say that those of you who haven’t been back to the UK for a few years would probably be shocked to see your old High Street again. Even when I returned to England 9 years ago (how time flies!) the change was already noticeable. Pound shops and Charity shops seemed to be everywhere, interspersed with betting shops and a growing number of Starbucks and Costa Coffees. Fortunately Woolworths was, at that time at least, still trading, and was one of the first British stores I visited on arrival for a long overdue Pick & Mix fix.

The changing face of our High Streets continues unabated. Despite Government pep talks about signs of improvement in the economy, Pay Day Loan companies and Cash Converters (the modern version of Pawnbrokers) have added to the mix. Empty shop premises are often rented short term to what are known as ‘pop up shops’ - which at least provide opportunities for people to try out new business ideas, or in some cases to offload cheap dodgy merchandise. But of course people are still spending. It is impossible not to. For many the cost of Christmas 2013 will simply be repaid off credit cards during 2014, until the whole process begins again. Nothing new there either. Others will have bargain hunted or, like yours truly, slaved over a hot stove to produce home made seasonal treats, which still require some shopping for ingredients. What is changing radically is the way we shop, and ‘online’ is now the way to go. Amazon at least had a bumper Christmas. With easy ordering, fast and efficient deliveries, and a wealth of product choice, it is hardly surprising that shoppers are increasingly avoiding those traditional High Street stores which once had the monopoly over what we bought. Despite my reservations about Amazon, and its’ much publicised working environment, the fact is that our High Streets now often can’t compete. None of our old music, electrical, photographic, or indeed any specialist retailers could ever stock such a full range of goods in what have become premium rate premises. Big retail chains were once considered beautiful. Now they are at best struggling to survive, and somehow High Streets as we once knew them will have to adapt. The perverse thing is that what was once considered ‘big’ in terms of retail, is now rapidly becoming one humungous global supplier.

Eat in or Takeaway 081 455 5298 Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 You never thought you’d end up a billionaire, living in a palatial mansion, and jet-setting around the world. So it’s no real disappointment, when you don’t. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 Your lucky compound modifiers for this week are: long-term, hardfought and military-history. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 Lately it seems like nobody respects your feelings, but why don’t you just shut up for a second and let the stars worry about it. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 While it’s true that love has no boundaries, no limits, and no rules, your court-appointed restraining order has all three.

Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 Avoid making any important decisions this week. And, come to think of it, next week as well. In fact, assume this is always the case unless the stars tell you otherwise. Gemini May 22 – June 21 You’ll continue to sweat the small stuff this Thursday, thanks to a set of abnormally large exocrine glands. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 Remember: Sometimes in life you just have to roll the dice, move your wheelbarrow to St. James Place, and pay the $70 dollars in total rent. Leo Jul 23 – Aug 22 Possessed by satanic forces, your dog will soon order you to murder all those squirrels.

Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 There’s no worse fate than dying alone. Thankfully, you’ll be surrounded by hundreds of airline passengers when it happens. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 A cleansing fire will sweep across the land, purifying countless souls, purging all guilt and sin, and defrosting a number of delicious HungryMan dinners. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 You’ll feel like a kid again this week, thanks to an unexpected visit from your Uncle Joe. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 If you can’t smile and laugh at work occasionally, then you’re clearly doing something wrong, Mr. Surgical Oncologist.

Featured Game

Saturday 11th January 2014 PREMIER LEAGUE Cardiff v West Ham 22:00 A relegation six pointer if there ever was one, this game sees under pressure manager Sam Allardyce take on the Premier League’s newest boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Given that the West ham board have given Big Sam their full backing then this isn’t a make or break game for the manager, but it is for the team. We can’t see anything but more misery for the Hammers fans, who are calling for their manager to be sacked, mainly because of the style of play.

a nice kipper tie Thomas Hitzlsperger comes out as ‘Brummie’

birmingham, england Former Aston Villa midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger has ended years of speculation amongst fans by revealing he is actually from Birmingham. Hitzlsperger revealed that he was Brummie in an interview with Birmingham newspaper the Express & Star. Fans agreed that anyone who had heard the German international speak during his time in England would easily have mistaken him for a midlander, but today’s announcement finally puts an end to the ongoing debate. The now retired footballer told the paper, “I’ve waited until retirement to announce the fact that I’m a Brummie due to the stigma attached to other Brummies in the media.” “People will perhaps call me brave, but it’s just who I am and I hope the fans can accept me as the player I was, and the Brummie I continue to be.”

The former footballer went on to explain why he concealed him Brumminess throughout his career. He went on, “It’s difficult to get ahead in this game if people think you’re a Brummie, and being German sounded quite exotic so I decided to go for that.” “I honestly thought my German accent was quite convincing, so it’s a bit embarrassing after all these years to hear everyone say they knew I was Brummie all along.” “I hid the truth because I was frightened of

what the opposition fans would shout at me if they knew I was from Shard End.” “But I’m absolutely delighted with the response I’ve had from the fans, 99% of which has been positive – there’s always a few idiots, but they’re in the small minority.” “I look at the response now and think that perhaps I should have come out as Brummie earlier in my career. Maybe this will lead others to do so?” “If only it had been this easy when people found out I was gay.”
