I have been told that children of a western parent and a Thai parent can not work for the govenment. DOes anyone know if this is true or not??? I don't care about them being soldiers or such, just doctors and lawyers, and such.
I don't know but it certainly sounds far fetched to me, especially if the child has Thai citizenship. Might be hard getting an answer to that.
My family doctor is half thai half japanese. he's the best doctor ive seen in thailand. fluent english, and fully checks you out before giving meds, etc...
I've got to pick myself up Dust myself off And start all over again.
Yes they can. Unfortunately though, there often is a glass ceiling. And ideal situation (if you plan on staying local) would be to support your kids through school and then help them open their own practice or clinic so they don't have to deal with that glass ceiling.
Anythings possible with position and money. Sadly as ferrangs we have little or no status here so its goin cost a whole lot of pineapples and 20 bahts to grease the palm of the hierarchy. jobs I'm sorry to say in almost all cases are bought, not given on merit and the prices are quadrupled for a ferrang. i think as Heng says opening up your own business is the way but even then, if the idea works, someones goin to copy it. Sad but true
^ is this the real heng?
if so, welcome back. have you sent a happy songkran card to DD yet?
us ferrets do quite well, actually^

By 2005 every previous resident of Warsaw had listed their temporary address as Portswood, Southampton, leading to it's appointment as capital of Poland. It is currently the subject of a hostile takeover bid from the home counties, particularly

True on the copy thing (it's actually true worldwide... they just happen to be much faster here and one doesn't have much legal leverage as well to protect one's ideas). The focus here seems to be on maintaining one's niche despite the competition and socking away as much as you can while you can and to diversify as much as possible, in other words taking for granted that there will indeed be competition and copiers. For the OP doctors and lawyers have less to worry about in that aspect though.Originally Posted by peelieorion
Good to see you!

Thanks BD. Haven't had time, but I saw his Hyundai at Foodland not too long ago and clipped a couple of 20's to his windshield wiper to help out.

It was fantastic thanks.
Not a hitch and overcorrected to 20/10.
In short, perfect. :smoker:You can also have vision that is better than the norm. A person with 20/10 vision can see at 20 feet what a normal person can see when standing 10 feet away from the chart.
Great to hear. Nice, Chuck Yeager vision.
Where did you hear that?
They can, as long as they keep Thai citizenship.
Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.
Too long like a rolling stone, Too long in exile
Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
Would they be able to retain their second citizenship as well AO?
Thai law seeems to be very hazy on the issue and I have read that technically, Thailand does not recognize dual citizenship. (and I mean technically).
Asking because I've wondered.
Russell, I really dont know, they are over 9 now and still check out on a Thai passport, and in on an American one with no questions asked at either end.
I have former students that are luk krung employed in every field you could think of, but not a one chose government service, not even in the diplomatic field as they say its closed. Meaning you have to have a name.
