Somebody at siampinoy.net forum posted the news about 2 Pinays stranded in Songkhla, south of Thailand. They were in Malaysia where they had some visa problems so they came to Thailand. The complete post can be found here, including the subsequent discussions and suggestions on how to help them. The best action is to refer this to the Philippine Embassy in Bangkok. However, Songkhla is more than 1,000 km from Bangkok. It's good fellow Pinoys in the south are helping them with their day to day, and even ready to raise funds to help them pay their overstaying penalty fees to Thailand as well as air ticket back to the Philippines. Such is the good heart shown by our kababayans over there. Here is hoping that help will come soon for them.
