The mundane side of living in Thailand

Today we find ourselves running around to set up Chanya with her 50:50 co-pay government subsidy program. The Thai government has expanded the program to include other small business outside the first launch which only covered food vendors primarily. As she has been busy with all the legalities around our house purchase, she has all the right documentation to make the application. This meant only 5 minutes wait at our local council office to get the approval. We then trundled off to the bank to submit MORE paperwork for the home loan. Then we were off to the housing estate to hand over some more paperwork there and finally, we actually got the time to have a late lunch at another bistro. Once lunch was finished, we then needed to go to a new bank to open another bank account for the co-payment system because the program only runs through one bank. I didn’t film that last hour and a half of our day doing that task to save you from the real boring part! Hahaha!
