Kad Suan Kaew Post Office has moved

Dear Editor,
I am writing to inform the Chiang Mai Mail readers of the new location of the Kad Suan Kaew Post Office. The old one inside the mall has closed and whilst there is a sign, it is only in Thai language. Fortunately for me the security guard told me where the Post Office had moved. It is now right next to the small Police Station outside the back entrance to Kad Suan Kaew next to the Lotus Pang Suan Kaew Hotel.
I am attaching a photo of the new Post Office. When I visited last week it was not yet quite finished, but vastly larger and easier to use than the old one. However, there was still just the one hard working gentleman with the glasses who often works there so whilst the area is bigger, if it is busy, and it often is, service will still a little bit of time.
I am hoping that the new office will have a few more employees to go along with the fact that it is actually quite a busy little sub-station and our friendly, hard-working Postal worker will have some company in that rather vast office.
Yours,
Tim


Looking for an old classmate

Dear Sir,
I am trying to trace a college friend, Alan Puzey, who studied on a photography course at Harrow Technology and Art, UK, in the 1960s. A reunion is being planned by some of our year group. Alan formerly lived in Twickenham, UK, but may now be living in Chiang Mai as his name has come up in the columns of your paper. If you are able to publish this letter, and he is living there and wants to get in touch, my email address is given below.
Many thanks for your help.
Yours sincerely,
Margaret Ahmed

Immigration office for Residence letter

Dear Editor,
Thank you for the update on the new Immigration office out by Promenada. However, it seems that the office is more than just for Burmese, Lao and Cambodian workers to process their visas and 90 day reports. A friend of mine was sent there for the Immigration residence letter as well and she is not any of those nationalities. It is important to note that it is on Route 1141 and on the south side of Promenada.
You will need your two photos and photocopies – my friend who went said there was a place to do it but he had his own already. He did not need a queue number but went straight to Window 2. The fee is now 500 baht but if you pay that you can get it in one day, when I did it in the old office last year it took many days. I can’t recall how many but certainly not one. , but neither do you need to wait in line. Apparently if you don’t mind waiting you can pay less.
The office is called the Chiang Mai Immigration Region 3 for Legalized Labor Office and it has ample parking as well.
Yours,
Tom


Road improvements on Nimmanhaemin

Dear Editor,
I was recently on Nimmanhaemin Road and I was pleasantly surprised to see the Municipality tarmacking the side of the road towards the intersection. This stretch of road is notoriously bad for potholes so it is a welcome improvement. As a person who likes to walk, it will be much nicer to walk down this stretch of road with no fear of getting splashed by passing vehicles going through the huge puddles that have formed due to the potholes.
I would love to see the pavements also improved in a similar manner. It is nearly impossible to walk down this busy street without having to go into the road at some point. Even places where there is an actual pavement, the raised portion at the beginning where there are many shops, the shops put signs out and even water features hindering access to the pavement for more than one person at a time.
In addition to shop signs and water features on the pavements there are also numerous old phone booths that rarely get used. I realize that these phone booths are not something the Municipality can simply take away since they belong to the TOT but wouldn’t it be nice if they asked the TOT if they can remove them? Surely the TOT cannot be making much money off of these old phones. Indeed some of the booths do not even have phones in them.
Nimmanhaemin is not alone in this regard; these useless old booths and endless signs block pavements around the city. I had a friend who visited me recently and exclaimed at how clean Chiang Mai is, and it is true, the city has gone far to keep the streets clean of rubbish and should be commended for this work. Now let us hope that they can clean the pavements of unnecessary blockages as well.
Yours,
Chiang Mai walker
