THE ARSED’S IMPOTENT COLUMN FOR FEBRUARY 2012

Dear Constant Reader.

I was reading a little bit about Rupert Murdoch’s wife Wendi Deng, a lovely

43 year old Chinese lady. Murdoch is now I believe 83, so I thought to myself,

that’s the way to go !! A lady; 40 odd years younger than yourself. Doesn’t that

conjour up some exciting visions in your mind. Well, I’m a publisher same as Rupert

and I’m getting on in years so I sort of have the necessary qualificationd for

a woman 40 years younger than myself.

Still no applicants for the job of Sales & Marketing person for the Pattaya Trader. I mention

this in case anyone out there knows of a Thai girl or boy or a mixture of both who might be

looking for a job of this nature. Smart, self confident and a nice personality are all that’s needed.

A bit of spoken English would be an asset but most of the businesses will be Thai owned so the

English is not so important.

The Pattaya Trader is also looking for writers. We still need someone who can write about

formula 1 and golf. I would also really like to build up the sports section of the magazine, so if you

have a sport you would like to write about and contribute to the Trader every month please get in

touch. Maybe the Pattaya Sports Club has someone who could write about their favourite sport.

How about fishing ? Any fishermen who can put pen to paper ?

A friend of mine (yes, I do have friends believe it or not !) said to me the other day that we

ought to have more competitions. This got me to thinking that maybe we could have a monthly

competition for the best looking girl friend ? I would be happy (well ... not actually happy, but prepared)

to fork out a couple of thousand Baht as a prize to the best looking lady of a reader. A picture

(nothing sexy, or at least not too sexy, of the lady with some bio details about her. We will

publish the picture of the winning lady in the following issue and give her 2,000 Baht prize money.

Is this a good idea ? Or maybe YOU have a better one ? Please write in and let me know and if

you all think the ‘Girl Friend’ competition is good we will run it.

I guess that’s about all I can think of for this issue. If you would like to write in to me about

anything at all concerning the Pattaya Trader magazine I would be delighted to hear from you.

Pattaya Trader

Steve was delighted when he learned that all

the boys would be over to Pattaya again in

April. As usual, his best mate Gary had called

him on Saturday to tell him all the latest news

from his home town in the UK. Since he’d

moved to Thailand five years earlier, he’d become accustomed

to the vastly different climate and culture of a country 6,000

miles from what used to be home. He wouldn’t swap it, but he

did miss the regular company of the group of friends that had

all gone to school together and had remained close ever since.

Their annual visit to Pattaya had become an event that none of

them would miss - work, wives and girlfriends permitting. This

year was to be a little different it appeared, and not for the better.

The intervening years hadn’t changed Marty, the ex-school

bully. He had evolved into a loud-mouthed, lairy, Billy no mates.

As he lived in the same town and frequented the same pubs, it

was difficult to avoid him. So when word got out that the lads

had booked their holiday,

Marty decided to tag

along and a week later he

booked the same flight.

He was so thick-skinned

as to be oblivious to

the derogatory remarks

made in the pub that his

action had prompted.

Steve knew that it was

going to be hard work

trying to cope with Marty

for a fortnight.

When the lads

arrived in Pattaya, it

emerged that Marty,

despite not being the

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

W

The Lesson

sharpest knife in the drawer, had even managed to book himself

into the same Soi 7 hotel as the others. After a few days it

became clear that Marty was intent on business as usual, despite

the advice from the others that Thailand was not a place that

tolerated loutish behaviour. He’d already had a few fights with

farangs of various nationalities and insulted several bar girls who

had, very sensibly, rejected his amorous overtures. The others

had helped him out and dragged him away before he got himself

in serious trouble with the local constabulary. The time seemed

right for him to be taught a lesson.

On Saturday night, after watching the football in Soi 7, they

decided on a visit to Walking Street. Just before they entered the

pedestrianised area, Marty’s attention was drawn to the Muay

Thai boxing that was going on in the street side beer-bar complex.

They all stopped for a minute or two while Marty let it be

known to anyone in earshot that it wasn’t “proper” boxing and

the Thai fighters wouln’t last two minutes against a seasoned exponent

of the Queensbury

rules such as him. One or

two of the lads exchanged

knowing glances. Unlike

Marty, they’d been there

a few times before and

seen many a farang who

fancied their chances made

to appear a complete prat.

Predictably Marty took

little persuading to have

a go when the MC asked

for a farang volunteer to

go a couple of rounds

with Chokchai, the reigning

champion. Marty was

sure it was a tourist show

Page 20 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

and that it was all put on. He’d go gentle on the Thai lad and not

show him up too much.

As he climbed up into the ring, Steve noticed a couple of his

mates talking quietly to Chokchai’s trainer and a number of hundred

Baht notes changing hands. For the first minute or so Marty

was content to show off his pugilistic skills and finely honed torso

to the admiring bar girls who responded by calling him all the

insulting Thai names under the sun. He smiled back in blessed

ignorance. The first round ended with hardly a punch or kick

being landed. Due mostly to Marty’s ineptitude and Chokchai’s

accomplished ringcraft. Steve glanced over to Chokchai’s corner

and saw the trainer seemingly giving some instructions. These

instructions immediately became evident when the contest resumed.

In simple terms, Marty was being given a discrete hiding.

To the casual observer Chokchai was landing more punches and

kicks, but they didn’t seem to be delivered with any malice. Marty

knew otherwise. Chokchai’s skill was enabling him to appear to

be lightly clipping Marty at will, but those blows were meant to

hurt - and did. As the round progressed, Steve realised what was

going on. Two of the others had slipped the trainer a few Baht so

that his boxer could give Marty a hiding. As the bout was nearing

it’s end, Steve thought that Marty might have learned someing

and slow down a bit. Far from it, Marty’s ego and misplaced faith

in his own ability forced him into one final onslaught. The only

effect of which was to force Chokchai to up the ante and deal a

blow that would stop the contest. He easily evaded Marty’s wild

right hook and simultaneously thumped Marty on the back of

the head and kicked his legs from under him. Steve was now

concerned. Chokchai seemed to have lost the plot and was going

to deal with Marty as if there was a ten thousand Baht purse at

stake, rather than a few hundred. Without further ado Steve leapt

up into the ring and grabbed Chokchai around the shoulders

shouting “por, por”, hoping that Chokchai would realise he’d done

enough damage.

Back outside Steve put Marty in a waiting taxi and told the

driver to take him to Pattaya Memorial hospital. He wasn’t badly

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

hurt, only a few cuts and bruises and a sorely damaged ego. His

knee was probably the thing that would need treatment, as he’d

fallen awkwardly in the final melee and could have damaged a

ligament or something similar. Leaving Marty to sort himself out

and reflect on the error of his actions, the rest of the lads headed

into Walking street in search of less frenetic entertainment.

It was around five hours later that Steve found himself

walking along the soi at the back of the hospital that led to his

apartment. He half-hesitated and wondered if he should go in

the A & E department and see if Marty had been sorted out. No,

Marty has to learn his lesson. He’ll be back on the scene tomorrow

- hopefully with a better attitude. Steve turned the final

corner on his journey home when he heard a voice behind him.

“Money farang!”. Steve turned slowly to face a Thai man weilding

a long bladed knife and a look that showed that he was probably

prepared to use it.

The fight/flight instinct raced through Steve’s mind. Give

him the money, turn and run or fight? He only had about six

hundred Baht on him as it had been a good night out. He was on

the corner of a soi that led nowhere and trying the ‘Braveheart’

approach with a man holding a large knife and a bad attitude

didn’t seem to be a good idea. Before he had the chance to make

a possible life or death decision, the necessity for it was obviated.

In the darkness Steve didn’t see what happened. All he heard

was a whoosh and a crack, followed by a thud. Moving out into

the light of a street lamp, Steve saw Marty holding the thin end

of an old-fashioned wooden crutch and a crumpled heap of Thai

would-be mugger on the pavement. “Better get out of here a

bit sharpish, I think I’ve hit him a bit too hard”. Steve thought to

himself “thank God for brute force and ignorance”. “ Let’s go and

have a beer and have you got any money?” said Marty. I was in

that bloody hospital for ages and it cost me a fortune. I like Pattaya

- I think I might pack up work and move over here”.

RAE’S RAMBLES

While scientists are

trying to discover if

the universe is made

of matter or anti-matter

the rest of us are

wondering ‘What the hell does it matter?’

with all the present devastation in Thailand

of late. The only consolation is that the scenario

of the world being a washout won’t

last, but, at the same time, I wonder what

happened to the Creator’s promise to Noah

(after the deluge) that he’d send a rainbow

as a promise that the earth would never be

flooded again. I suppose that as only about

half of the entire country was affected, and they not being ‘His Chosen

People’, it didn’t count as ‘wholesale’ in his ledger!

The only floods I’ve experienced have been my childhood reminiscences

that have been flooding back (of the late 50’s Sussex inundation

when my brothers and I sailed around the rooftops of hundreds of

submerged caravans on a makeshift raft of railway sleepers), making me

realize that nostalgia is a thing of the past and not appropriate for a more

fortunate falang to be presently wallowing in. Although they say swimming

is good for the figure I have reservations about ending up with

my body resembling that of an old trout. But why should I

go along with the American theory that only the sleek will

inherit the earth?

I certainly don’t go along with their other] philosophies

for, if you remember, when the Pilgrims ! landed in

America there were only Indians there: they had no taxes,

no national debt, no conscription, no prisons, no brutal

law enforcers or national guard, and the women did all of

the work - and the floundering Pilgrim Fathers thought they

would improve on that system!

If only the native Indians had had a more enlightened immigration

policy the land might have still belonged to them.

When asked what they called their country before it was

dubbed ‘America’ in honour of Amerigo Vespucci ; they replied

“Ours”. Perhaps, instead of the Pilgrim Fathers landing on

Plymouth Rock, it would have been better if the Plymouth Rock

had landed on those Pilgrim Fathers. But there is no point in worrying

about life for if you worry you die, and even if you don’t worry

you die j eventually anyway - so why worry?

All I ever exercise now is an occasional bit of discretion even though

I was out four nights running last week ... no, not jogging! Jogging is for

those aerobic freaks not intelligent enough to enjoy CRAPattaya TV. When

I did take up regular exercise a while ago on the understanding that it

would add years to my life, which it did, I found I felt ten years older and

had developed the energy levels of someone twice my age capable only

of stirring up apathy - but I still do stretch when I yawn in the morning.

Take up running? My whole life has been a race against time and in this

rat-race it’s always the rats that seem to keep winning - and they’re still

rats even when they do win.

My friends seem to be of the opinion the only thing that will improve

my appearance is by keeping my distance. But oh, insomnia! Lying awake

at nights, listening to time ticking silently away; wondering what is a

‘civil-war’; what are ‘even-odds’; if ‘honesty is the best policy’ what are the

Page 22 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

other options; why is ‘being too clever by half an insult; does

‘virtual reality’ mean real or unreal, and those concepts of

infinity and eternity 1 mean where will it all end? However,

I do aerobic sleeping; that is I toss and turn all night when

suffering from my insomnia. My ying said “My bhen arry.

Doan u wolly,’coz u will plobably sleep it off.” I took a sleeping

draught (a big bottle of Bull’s Blood Vino Sanguino) and

got double rest as 1 dreamt I was sleeping, and on waking, I

asked my ying ‘Are you asleep?’ to which she answered “I’m

not telling you!”

One thing about being a fat OAP is that ‘multitasking’

is being able to laugh, cough, sneeze, fart and pee all at

the same time, the only consolation being is that old age is

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

something you will outgrow - eventually! And since old

age is only a question of mind over matter what does it

matter if you don’t mind - because if you don’t mind it

won’t matter! Mind you, when your wrinkles turn into

body-pleats it’s no longer just puppy-fat and your puppylove

has gone to the dogs - it’s time to diet! But just don’t

ask me what colour. Groan! I know, I know, the standard

of my correspondence is nothing to write home about

but still the penis mightier than the sword (even though

it’s a lot more difficult to behead somebody with one). Ah

well, since I can’t please all of the people all of the time I

shall just have to please myself thereby at least making

one person happy for I can’t have it both ways as I’m not

a khatoey lady-boy.

A gem or two among the sloths: The New Star go go is the first

den on the left-hand side in Soi Diamond if you are coming in off

Walking Street. It’s easy to walk past, although the policy of having

a couple of usually well-endowed and passably attractive dancing

damsels stood behind the curtain at the entrance and ever ready to

display their primary assets to passers-by usually means the place

gathers a reasonable crowd of punters most nights.

A fairly short and narrow den, it only

takes seven or eight girls and three

or four bums on seats to make it

look busy. The stage has three to

five girls shuffling about while two

damsels soap each other towards

the centre. The preferred discounted

thirst quencher is draft amber while

lady drinks are a fair 110 baht (for a

proper glass).

Of the 12 or so girls I saw on a recent

visit, two or three were worth a second

look while about half were pot

boilers or potential ‘before’ adverts

for Weight Watchers. There is a room

upstairs, which can be rented for 350

baht for a short period of time (one

hour), while the bar fine is 600 baht.

The damsel of your desire wants you

to part with 1,500 baht for an hour of

her precious time. Doing the math,

better value for the nocturnal emission

baht can be found elsewhere,

but the bar is usually worth at least

a look.

A little piece of Heaven in Pattaya:

The Heaven Above go-go (Soi

Diamond) is one of those dens of the

chrome pole people seem to either

love or hate. My personal attitude

towards it is one of ambivalence: can’t

stand the aural assault emanating from

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

Proud of her hair in Diamond go go

behind the DJ’s booth, but appreciate the wide and varied looks of

the dancing damsels, albeit that the majority are members of the

hard-core division of wallet emptiers.

I was out with a mate who was initially reluctant to make the trek

up the stairs into Heaven Above. He said his previous experiences

in the den had been less than exciting and he wasn’t keen on the

all-white décor. It was happy hour where a small glass of draft amber

fluid is only 50 baht until 9:30pm.

A smart move the management

have picked up from the Happy/

Peppermint/Beach Club collective

is to have someone, in this case

a couple of the more attractive

dancers, walk around with a sign

indicating happy hour would be

over in five minutes.

As we sat surveying the six dancers

on the main stage and the three or

four who were shuffling about on a

few scattered podiums, my friend

decided this visit to Heaven Above

was far better than his previous

ventures into the den. A quick head

count gave us around 25 dancers

all up as well as some of the best

looking service girls and hostesses

of any place in Fun Town.

If you’re looking for the kind of

hands-on and go the grope kind

of ogling den of the Baby Dolls/

Windmill Club type experience

then you’re in the wrong place. If

you’re searching for Orville and

Wilbur’s sister, Miss Wright, then

once again you’re probably barking

up the wrong chrome pole. If,

instead, you want to find the kind of

girl who can strip paint off walls with

her tongue and turn your love bone to jelly,

Page 24 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

then Heaven Above is well worth the stair climb.

Pattaya go-go dancers: Madame Tussaud’s come

to life, almost: When the girls who work in the go-go

bars are asked what they do, they almost invariably say

they are ‘dancers’. As most observers of the go-go scene

would no doubt concur, in many places it is hard to tell

whether they are ‘dancers’ or merely auditioning for

future roles as dummies in a wax museum.

One partner in the long defunct Spicy Girls go-go

(which started life in Pattayaland Soi 1, before that lane

became overly gender-confused) was once reported to

have said, “we’ve got some poles that are a bit loose, and

they move more than the girls!”

In years gone by the place where the best chrome pole

gyraters could be seen was Happy go-go (Walking

Street). For some years they had easily the best line-up of

girls who would cavort about the centre stage in various

stages of undress while shaking everything. Rumour

suggested much of this adult Attention Deficit Disorder

(ADD) was due to the liberal ingestion of medicinal

compounds not usually available over the counter in

a pharmacy.

Nowadays it’s hard to think of a single den which can lay

claim to having a crew of genuinely energetic or frenetic

exponents of the art of molesting a chrome pole.

When Diamond go-go (Soi Diamond) used to hold

regular monthly dance contests, especially in the early

days when other go-go’s would be invited to compete,

the quality of the dancers and the dancing was first rate,

especially towards the final rounds.

That said, I doubt most punters wander into a gogo

in search of a partner to take to the World Tango

Championships. Their main interest, after all, is what

kind of a performance can be expected in the horizontal

mattress dancing stakes.

A Saunter down Soi LK Metro

Tonights bar crawl takes us along Lk Metro, a

soi which may not be on the radar of anyone

visiting Pattaya for the first time.

Gaining entry to the soi from either Soi Diane or Soi

Buakaow, Soi Lk Metro has seen many new venues open

in the last year or so. Originally developed by the Leng Kee

family it now boasts half a dozen or so gogo bars, a large

selection of reasonably priced guest houses, plus numerous

places to eat and drink.

Situated where it is, this soi doesn’t attract the Walking

Street crowds of Russian, Indian and Arab tourists. Instead Lk

Metro caters for the local expat community, and people on

holiday who stay in and around the vicinity.

Entering Lk Metro from Soi Diane, I decide to start the

evenings drinking at Champagne Agogo. This well established

venue was the sois original gogo bar and I was keen to

see how it was holding up against the new kids on the block.

On entering I was pleased to see a reasonable amount

of customers, which isn’t bad going for this early start of 7

pm. I was also delighted to see that Champagnes happy hour

prices were still intact, offering beer at just 65 Baht a bottle

from 2pm through to 9pm. Also still in place is the free pizza

nights on a Monday and Thursday.

Another plus point is that you can drink in here without

the constant hassle to buy lady drinks. Mind you, looking at

some of the darlings working in here, they would be welcome

to hassle me for as long as the see fit.

I am also happy to report that Champagne has lost none

of its fizz and is still a strong contender for the best gogo bar

on Lk Metro.

My next drink takes me along to The Office Agogo,

which is one of the newer venues on the soi.

This office is unlike any other i have visited in my carrer.

If the work place was indeed like this, i for one would be

more than willing to put in a few more extra hours. Here the

theme is the fantasy world of the sexy secretary. The girls

certainly look the part, dressed in high heels, stockings and

suspenders. Some even don reading glasses to complete the

look.

Office Agogo has a central stage upon which 4 or 5 of

the girls dance, complementing this we have a small jacuzzi

which unfortunately wasn’t in use.

Prices are similar to its competitors with draft and

bottled beer costing 65 Baht between 7pm and 9pm. Again

the girls are non- pushy allowing for a pleasant drinking environment.

Next up is the nautical themed Submarine Agogo,

another relatively new club in the area. Entering by crossing

a gangplank, this gogo bar is as the name would suggest

decked out as a submarine.

Page 26 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

I honestly don’t recall ever visiting a smaller or more narrow

gogo bar, while here in Pattaya. In fact it is so narrow it

doesn’t have the space for a stage, instead the girls dance on

low level tables which sit central to the wall hugging seats.

Unbebelievably they did find space for a jacuzzi, but again it

wasn’t in use. I order a draft beer which is priced at 60 Baht

and true to form comes in a small narrow glass.

Submarine Agogo is definitely worth a curious look. It

has a couple of decent looking girls, and if i was ever unfortunate

enough to suffer from claustrophobia, i could think of

worse places for it to happen than a Pattaya gogo bar.

My last drink of the evening takes me to Club Blu,

which sits on the Soi Buakaow end of the soi.

Club Blu has been open for around four years, but still

has a fairly modern look and feel about it. Inside with its

chrome and glass it wouldn’t look out of place in my home

city in the Uk. What makes this stand apart from anything

back at home is the coyote dancers. These dancing girls strut

their stuff along the windows of Lk Metro, making pleasant

viewing for anyone passing by. For this reason there is obviously

no nudity here, and it may not appeal to the more

hands on type of customer.

Drinks come in at a reasonable 75Baht for a bottle of

Leo or Tiger, with draft beer costing just 50 Baht. Along with

these prices and some decent eye candy, i could think of

worse places to end my nights drinking.

Although sharing some similar types of venues, i think

it would be unwise to believe the hype suggesting this soi to

be a mini Walking Street. This is a perfectly fine soi in its own

right, and should be judged accordingly.

I firmly believe Lk Metro has enough attractions to

satisfy the first time visitor, while also keping the local expats

happy with affordable drink prices. If these two factors

As the high season jet-ski scamming season

is now in full swing, I was contacted by two

long-time Pattaya jet-ski operators who were

keen to put their side of the story, suggesting

they are just a misunderstood minority simply

trying to earn a dishonest living.

The two men are brothers, Turdsuk, 28, and Turdsak, 26.

They come originally from Amphur

Anywhere in Mukdahan province

and asked me to refer to them

simply as Big Turd and Little Turd.

“For so many years we were

ignored by the local and international

press, “ complained Big

Turd. “It was all ‘Phuket this’, and

‘Phuket that’. The jet-ski operators

of Phuket got all the press while

we in Pattaya hardly ever rated

a mention. It was so frustrating because

we are as good as anyone at

extracting money with menaces.”

Big Turd emphasized his point

by opening and closing his fists

and dribbling out the side of his

mouth.

The pair claimed they combined

with other jet-ski operators

and became determined to ramp

up their collective profile.

Little Turd chimed in, “It was

an affront to our manhood. How

could we continue to allow Phuket

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

Pattaya Jet Ski Scammers

say they are Misunderstood

jet-ski operators to steal all the best headlines? We were becoming

a laughing stock.” Liitle Turd emphasized his point by

reaching above his head and violently spinning the helicopter

blades on the top of his Mickey Mao baseball cap.

The pair stated they, and their compatriots, had ramped

up their threats of physical violence to tourists, including

pulling knives and donning knuckle dusters. These actions, as

well as just “looking tough” had completely changed the way

Page 28 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

Pattaya’s jet-ski operators are now viewed.

“We made the front pages of most of the local newspapers.

We had the British Foreign Office add Pattaya to Phuket

as a place to be wary of hiring jet-skis. We had a national

television channel do a report on Pattaya jet skis and City

Hall spent a few days making a lot of noise about making

sure we were licensed and getting rid of the rogues,” stated

Big Turd.

“You just can’t buy publicity like that,” exclaimed Little

Turd. “Sure we lost a lot of business from the English-language

speakers, the British and Americans, but we keep a

close eye on what the TAT [Tourism Authority of Thailand]

is doing and we knew they were getting Indians to come to

Pattaya in bigger numbers. So, we target them, and the East

Europeans. And we know everyone just hates the Indians

and the Russians, so no one cares what happens to them.”

The pair claim they now not only have the respect of

their cousins in Phuket, they have their envy.

“We are the number one scam artists in the jet-ski

game,” said Big Turd, sticking his chest out and beaming like

a stuck pig. “Hey, go to YouTube and there are videos of us

plastered all over the Internet. I’ve been called a lot of things

in my life, but when foreigners think they’re being insulting

by claiming I’m a ‘scumbag’ or an ‘asshole’ it means nothing.

Like water off a buffalo’s back as we say up-country. But if they

dared call me a monitor lizard then I would hunt them down

and be really nasty.”

When asked why they tried to extract such hefty sums

for what is usually only a small strip of rubber that allegedly

falls off one side, Big Turd was quick to reply, “You have no idea

of our expenses. Just to set up on a part of the beach costs a

fortune in back-handers. Then we have to pay a percentage of

whatever we get as a kind of local government tax. And have

you seen how much 24 bottles of Singha costs these days?

Outrageous. Those breweries are worse than us.”

He then asked, “Do you want to take one of our jet-skis

out for a spin? Only 500 baht for 15 minutes and I promise we’ll

only hit you up for another 20,000 for damage. That’s a great

discount on our normal rates, because we won’t involve our

uniformed friends, OK?”

I politely declined.

Restaurant Reviews

Aloha Diner and Bar. 27 hungry diners in the Frugal Freddy

club invaded Aloha on this evening at our usual 6pm meeting

time, we were greeted by Anusorn who is both the owner, supervising

creative chef and mix-ologist for the large variety of

Polynesian drinks for 1, 2, or 4 people in a variety of glasses and

bowls decorated with fruit and flowers and as many straws as

you want. These drinks not only quenched our thirst but were

very easy on our wallet as Anusorn let us know that he has a

European mind set because he started out first owning a similar

restaurant in Germany before coming back to Thailand 12 years

ago to start Aloha. If the economy is slow unlike many Thai’s

his secret to success is to offer better value for the money and

it is totally safe to say we all walked out happy with this way of

promoting business. I had confirmation from 14 members to

save a seat for them at the main table at 6pm and not only did

all 14 show up on time but 13 more came. The restaurant easily

seats 65 people. No problem finding tables close to the main

table. Decorated in a Polynesian theme with a small stage for

nightly entertainment, it is a very cordial atmosphere. Located

on 2 nd Road, park across the street at the Royal Garden Shopping

center (B40), or take any of the Baht busses that run on 2 nd road

and avoid any parking problems.

We chose to visit this particular evening because Anusorn now

has a daily special set menu (B250) that is featured outside on

the “Weekly set menu board” It changes every day of the week

but remains the same for a calendar month. A number of us ate

there earlier in the month and had the BBQ Brochette that has

a nice size Filet of beef, pork, chicken, sausage and bacon. All

pieces were cooked perfectly and included steamed vegetable

and your choice of potatoes (baked, fried or mashed).

We all noticed coming up on Wednesday was a rock lobster

thermidor special with 2 small lobsters, choice of potatoes and

steamed vegetables. There is nowhere else in Pattaya where you

can get a lobster dinner for B250 and 2 for 1 tropical cocktails,

priced from only B110. I spread the word through the Frugal

Freddy email grapevine and the response was immediate. I notified

Anusorn to have enough lobster for 20 of us and staff to take

good care of us and he

did. He did not run out of

Lobster nor out of alcohol

so it was a very successful

evening.

Rita and I and the Frugal

Freddy group also dined

recently at Goose’s Fish

and Chips (a full supporter

of Frugal Freddy)

restaurant on 2 nd road

between Soi 7 & 8. They

can seat over 30 people

inside and another dozen

outside. It is nicely decorated

with waitresses

who do understand English.

Goose’s has a full fish

menu featuring Pacific

Dory (B195/B120), Halibut

(B265) Turbot (B270)

Cod Loin (B270) Cod Filet

(B295) and the King of

English Fish and Chips

Haddock (B470) The fish

Page 30 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

comes deep fried in a light batter

and is of various weights. All meals

include your choice of potatoes

and a salad. Rita choice the hand

cut fries where I chose the mashed,

plus a salad and a generous portion

of tartar sauce. In addition they have

a Gammon dinner (B195), liver and

bacon (B245) and others too numerous

to mention like Chicken Burger

& Hamburger (B195) and couple

of salads for the vegetarians in the

group.

We started with the soups Tomato

and New England Clam Chowder,

both very good, then appetizers. I

had the Prawn cocktail (B145) which

was really a prawn salad with lettuce,

tomato, green onions, olives

in hundred Island dressing. The 8

shrimp were plump, fresh and delicious.

Rita choice the Chicken dippers,

a large plateful of moist strips

of chicken breast, battered and served with a dipping sauce,

don’t know what it was but it was a big bowl and empty when

we finished.

For drinks Rita had her usual Coke (B40) and I had a small caraf

of red wine (B145) and they do have a full bar of beer and liquor

at reasonable prices. After our soups and appetizers and main

course we were too stuffed to have dessert but were tempted to

try the fresh strawberries and banana sundae (B120) but since

Rita was too full to eat her small portion of Pacific Dory we passed

on dessert and I instead had the Irish Coffee (B120) made with

Jameson’s and a head of cream like a good glass of Guinness. A

great way to finish off an excellent meal.

PCEC has many special interest groups to serve the members, one

of the most popular is the Frugal Freddy dinin g out group meeting

The Hunter becomes

the Hunted

Kindly submitted by BS.

It was a new day, empty, innocent and as yet unsullied,

maybe a good day, maybe a bad day, maybe

the last day, but a big day for sure, because I was

about to meet my wife’s family for the first time.

But first, we had to get there. Her village was way

up in the remote highlands of Chang Mai. I was lucky; Rung

was a good girl, a teller from my bank whom, I somehow

managed to sweep off her feet. She was a petite woman

with plenty of good looks, intelligence and tenacity. I was

looking forward to today’s trip. After hearing so much, I was

anxious to see her home.

During the flight north her small frame seemed unusually

tense. She sat next to me wringing her hands as if she

were Macbeth himself. I simply chalked it up to this being

her first airplane flight. But even after we landed there was

a deep sense of unease in her usually cheerful demeanor.

When I asked, there was a moment of debate in her face

like some sort of long range strategy session was taking

place in her mind before she smiled thinly and claimed

everything was fine. While

we waited for the taxi she’d

arranged, Rung just picked

at her food. She was clearly

troubled. I’d never seen her

like this before and began

to suspect that something

was amiss.

When I saw Rung’s

handpicked taxi driver, my

mental watchtower started

jangling, because I’d seen

his ilk a thousand times. He

had the soulless dead eyes

of a career criminal. When

we approached, the momentary

curl of his lips that

passed for a smile emanated

no friendliness and his cold

calculating eyes seemed to

be sizing me up for a coffin.

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

Rung however, introduced him as her cousin which I knew

was a lie. Now I was really getting worried.

After I paid the guy for our six hour ride into the mountains,

his flat lifeless eyes lit up like three sevens on a Vegas

slot machine when he saw the cash in my wallet. I watched

carefully while he put our bags in the trunk. He was a cross

between Frankenstein and Herman Munster --- strong and

stupid. His knotted forearms were covered in bad jailhouse

ink and his body language was nothing but menacing. I

had serious doubts about traveling alone with this highland

hooligan up into the desolate hills of northern Thailand

where anything could happen. Rung unconvincingly, assured

me it would be alright but my instincts told me otherwise.

So far, other than the sheets of rain that were falling,

the lousy pot-holed mountain road and our driver’s

less than expert motoring skills, the first four hours had

been uneventful, except Rung hadn’t spoken two words. I

couldn’t help but think

things weren’t what they

seemed. Did Rung devise

some sort of scheme to

get rid of me? After all,

we had just paid cash

for a home in her name

and I only recently made

Rung the sole beneficiary

of both my will and life

insurance policy. Surely I

was just being paranoid.

Or was I? No, my imagination

was just running wild.

But what about Rung’s

choice of driver and her

unusual behavior today,

could she really be capable

of such a thing?

At the tiny hamlet

where we stopped for

Page 32 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

petrol, my suspicions got the best of me. I dragged Rung

behind the restrooms and demanded to know what was

going on. She could barely look me in the eye and when she

did she was practically in tears. Finally, while biting her lip,

she stammered, “Tilac me sorry. Driber, him not cousin me.

Him mafia. Papa me stupid, him drunk. Him happy I marry

hubsban hab big money. Papa no hab to worry me poor

when old an him speak to uncle if you die, money come me.

Anoder man listen papa an tell ‘Mafia Man’. Mafia Man kidnap

real cousin me baby. Him speak baby die unless I bring

hubsban me here so him can kill. After I gib money you him,

him gib baby back. Tilac please help. Do what Mafia Man

say, okay? Not worry, papa, uncle, broder and cousin me

make idea. You not die --- sure.”

Suddenly, the idyllic picture that I imagined, of me

fishing with Rung’s relations on a quiet river near her village

was destroyed by what I’d heard and was replaced by the

unsettling image of this backwater behemoth, who’s brain

was likely lodged somewhere deep in the lightless tunnel

of his rectum, who was just waiting to wedge a monkey-wrench

between the cogs of my life --- stopping them

permanently!!! But before I could ask Rung about their ‘idea’,

Mafia Man motioned it was time to go. Terrific I thought,

now my life was in the hands of Rung’s family.

As we drove higher into the hills, the storm clouds

darkened, the rain fell harder, the rainforest loomed ominously

overhead, Rung sat silently, I contemplated dying,

the vehicle skidded to a halt and Mafia Man turned with a

malevolent grin on his ugly face and hissed, “Get out.”

In the pouring rain, I took a few irresolute steps across

the incredibly long mud-puddle that passed for a road,

towards the dripping jungle, while Mafia Man produced

a bottle partially filled with some syrupy concoction with

chunks of crud floating in it. The greenish-brown liquid

appeared to be the bodily fluids from a very sick and very

old buffalo, but it was probably some tribal shaman’s local

poison. He thrust the half-empty container towards me and

snarled, “Drink, I want to be rich and you to die.” Behind him,

Rung smiled weakly, nodded encouragement and gave me

a half-hearted thumbs-up. The best I could do under the circumstances

was mutter, “Yeah, well I want to win the lottery

and be ten years younger but I think we’re both going to be

disappointed.” He backhanded me and screamed, “Drink or

you both die!” If I believed in God, I would have said a prayer

but I didn’t, so I cursed this greedy Thai bastard instead,

crossed my fingers and drank his highland-hootch. Within

seconds I folded like a cheap rental chair at a backyard wedding.

I’m not sure how long I was under the arresting spell

of his rancid-rotgut but when I came to, my stomach felt

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

like it was twisted in a vise, my throat burned, my head was

pounding dangerously and I couldn’t move a muscle. As I

lay frozen, helplessly watching the heavy raindrops splash

into the mud, I began to feel the rest of my senses slowly

coming to life like a computer booting up programs. Then

I noticed Rung in tears, handing over my will, life insurance

policy and the deed to our home to this deranged dirt-bag.

Precisely at that moment, four Thai policemen appeared

from nowhere with guns drawn. As Mafia Man

comprehended this new development, a look of complete

bewilderment played across his face like a dog whose master

moved a ball from one hand to another too quickly. Then

panic kicked in and he launched into some fairy-tale about

self defense and me robbing him. In my weakened mental

capacity, I actually wondered, would they believe the shit he

was shoveling?

From my angle down in the mud all I could see was the

back of the police captain slapping Mafia Man and verbally

bludgeoning him with a fusillade of angry Thai words. Of

course, I didn’t understand a thing but I imagined it was

something like, “Shut-up! If you want to leave here with your

balls still attached to your body, you will confess!” After that

Mafia man started to spin a different story that came apart

like wet tissue paper under the shrewd captain’s interrogation.

This earned him another beating. Foolishly, the idiot

then went into survival mode and pushed the captain aside

in an attempt to escape. After all four officers were done, he

was bleeding, unconscious and his face looked like one of

those bloody, bruised and misshapen, latex masks that you

see at Halloween.

Eventually, the tough captain came over all smiles and

asked, in perfect English, “Did you enjoy the taste of our

country moonshine? I made it myself. We’ll drink some more

tonight --- minus today’s special ingredient.” “What kind of

special ingredient knocked me out so fast?” I croaked. Another

smile, “Sleeping pills.” “Were they for elephants,” I queried.

But before he could answer, Rung appeared with the

remaining officers in tow and tenderly spoke, “You habn’t

met my papa, uncle, broder or cousin yet, hab you tilac?”

VISA PLUS

Well, this has been a busy month in terms of

changes and non-changes to immigration

procedure. Firstly, on the 19th December the

government introduced charges for appeals

against UK visa refusals. Visa applicants for

settlement visas and family visit visas who have had their application

refused, and wish to appeal against the decision, will now

have to pay a fee. An appeal heard on “papers” ( that is, with

no representative present at the hearing ) will cost 80 GBP, and

an “oral” hearing ( with a representative present) will cost 140

GBP. The government has already said that these charges will be

raised regularly. In addition, it will no longer be possible to submit

an appeal at the Embassy where the application was made.

The appeal will have to be submitted in the UK, either by post,

fax, or online. Payment of the appeal fee will have to be made at

the same time, either by bank draft or credit card.

There were concerns that when charges were introduced

for appeals, then the right of appeal against the refusal of family

visit visa would be ended. This hasn’t happened, and the

government reasoning on this is that someone who has been

refused a family visit visa probably won’t appeal as the cost of

the appeal ( 80 GBP ) is greater than the cost of re-applying ( 76

GBP).

One good thing, if there is a good thing, is that the appeal

judge can award costs. So, if the appeal is allowed ( that means

if the judge says that the UKBA decision was wrong ) then the

judge can award the costs of the appeal against the UKBA. I

don’t think that the UKBA will want to start paying costs for

losing appeals, so I’m hoping that it will concentrate the visa

officers’ minds a little more, and get them to make better decisions

initially.

One major concern in these new procedures is how the refusal

decision will be reviewed. At the moment, when an appeal

against a refusal decision is submitted ( currently by submitting

the appeal at the Embassy in Bangkok) a review mechanism is

started. The refusal decision must be reviewed by an Entry Clearance

Manager before it is allowed to proceed to appeal in the

UK, and the decision to refuse a visa can be overturned at this

stage. With the new procedure, that allows the appeal to be

submitted only in the UK, It seems that the applicant will have

to pay the appeal fee ( in the UK ) before any review can be done

at the refusing Embassy. This seems to be seriously disadvantaging

the applicant, as well as adding considerable time to the

whole review process. We are waiting to hear how the UKBA

intend to deal with this.

Secondly, the long awaited High Court judgment on English

language testing has been released. The High Court has said

that they see no discrimination in the language requirement,

nor do they see that the requirement contravenes the right to

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

family life ( Sections 8 and 12 of the European Convention on Human

Rights). The High Court Judge did say, at one point :

“ the requirement to have passed a pre-entry English language

test did interfere with the couple’s article 8 rights to a family

life but this was justified in the interests of promoting integration

and protecting public services.”

I’m not entirely sure of the logic in that statement. The

number of spouses/partners entering the UK with a visa each year

is around 50,000, I think. But, the number of legal migrants from

the EU, and the number of asylum applicants is, I believe, in the

hundreds of thousands, and there is no requirement for them ever

to speak English or integrate. It does look a little bit like the easy

targets are being penalised by the government.

The judgment is long, and should you want to read it, you

can find it here –

http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/Resources/JCO/Documents/

Judgments/chapti-others-judgment.pdf

I think that there might be a further challenge in the European

courts, but they probably won’t be successful as the language

requirement has, I believe, already been tested in the courts in

Europe.

Thailand’s Contribution to the Land Campaigns of the United

Nations in the Korean War

In the early hours of a rainy Sunday, 25 June 1950, heavily

armed military units from the Democratic People’s Republic

of Korea (North Korea) launched an invasion of the

Republic of Korea (South Korea). The action heralded the

beginning of a protracted conflict that was to last for just

over three years.

Two days later, as the

South Korean (ROK) defence

forces crumbled and fell back,

the UN Security Council met in

hurried session and agreed to

‘…furnish such assistance to

the Republic of Korea as may be

necessary to repel the armed

attack and to restore international

peace and security to the

area.’ By-passing Congress,

US President Harry Truman ordered

the commander-in-chief

of the Far East, General Douglas

Macarthur, to provide whatever

assistance was needed to repel

the North Korean invasion. By

referring to the conflict as a ‘police action’ instead of a full-blown

‘war’, Truman was able, under the articles of the US Constitution,

to justify his direct intervention rather than wait for Congress to

give its assent.

American forces based in occupied Japan were airlifted

into South Korea and went into action for the first time on 5 July.

Outnumbered and outgunned, the small South Korean army and

the US forces fought delaying actions, aiming to gain the necessary

time for more US reinforcements to arrive and for other UN

member states to commit troops to the battlefield.

US President G. Ford

Part One

By Duncan Stearn

Britain was the first nation to agree to join the US in Korea,

followed in rapid succession by Australia, France, Canada, and New

Zealand. The first forces from these nations began arriving in southern

Korea in late August.

On 20 July 1950, following a late-night meeting lasting more

than three hours by the members

of the Defence Board of

Thailand, an agreement was

reached to offer a 4,000-strong

contingent to support the UN

effort. Prime Minister Pibul

Songgram was quoted as saying,

“Only by fast and decisive

action can we cope with the

critical situation all over Asia.”

This was an oblique reference

to the recent fall of China to

the Communists as well as the

on-going revolts against French

rule in Vietnam and Laos and

the largely expatriate Chinese

insurgency in Malaya.

That April, the United

States had allocated more than $10 million worth of arms and other

military equipment specifically designed to combat the so-called

‘communist menace’. Money was also allocated for the construction

of highways, especially for the north-east region of Thailand. This

allocation further brought Thailand into the American sphere of

influence, despite the large numbers of Chinese immigrants who

made up a high proportion of the Thai population.

Thailand’s first measure of support for South Korea had come

on 30 June when she sent four tonnes of rice as a goodwill gesture.

The UN and US officially accepted Thailand’s offer off troops

for Korea on 16 August, the first by an Asian nation. Significantly,

Thailand’s offer gave the lie to a claim by the Soviet Union that only

Page 36 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

European countries would send soldiers to fight in Korea. The Thai

ambassador to the United States, Prince Wan Waithayakon ( Pictured

directly below ) stated Thai forces were being committed “to

defend the cause of peace, freedom and justice. Aggression must

be stopped in Korea, or anywhere else, otherwise small nations will

fall.” Although he stated Thai soldiers would be sent as soon as possible,

it would be almost two months before the first troops were

ready to embark.

In September, the Philippines joined the UN coalition, becom-

ing the first Asian country to put its soldiers on the ground

in Korea. The coalition eventually encompassed 16 nations,

with South Africa, the Netherlands, Greece, Belgium,

Luxembourg, Ethiopia, Turkey and Colombia, committing

troops to the United Nations Command (UNC), as the intervention

force was known. Additionally, Denmark, India,

Norway and Sweden provided medical units and Italy,

although not a member of the UN, supplied a hospital.

A newspaper report filed by the AAP-Reuter correspondent

in Bangkok suggested the imminent arrival of

the Thai Expeditionary Force (TEF) should ‘not be underrated’

claiming the Thais would ‘likely [prove] a first-class

small-arms fighting unit.’ The reporter noted the UN could

expect a Thai soldier to possess three qualities: ‘imagination,

patriotism, and personal bravery.’ It was noted the TEF

was a voluntary force and ‘when the government called for

4,000 men, 14,000 volunteered within a fortnight.’ Among

those volunteers was Prince Chalermpol, who was assigned the

rank of a captain in the infantry.

A small advance force of Thai troops arrived in Japan on

12 October. Eight days later a ceremony for 1,200 Thai infantrymen

took place in Bangkok with a parade down Ratchadamnoen

Avenue, reviewed by Army Commander-in-Chief General Phin

Choonhavan. The commander told his men Communism was a

menace which needed to be stopped, which is why Thai troops

were now on their way to help in the defence of South Korea. This

would be the first occasion Thai troops had served overseas since

the First World War.

The first contingent of Thai soldiers, designated the 21st

Infantry Regiment, arrived in South Korea on 7 November. The Thais

were initially assigned to the US 187th Airborne Regiment, then to

I Corps (December 1950), IX Corps (January 1951), the 1st Cavalry

Division (March 1951) and finally the 2nd Infantry Division (27

December 1951).

The Thai troops arrived during the coldest winter for two centuries.

Despite the intensely cold weather, Thai morale was boosted

by the arrival of 10 specialist cooks who provided traditional Thai

cuisine to the soldiers.

The Thais did not see action until almost four months after

their arrival. In cold conditions, this first combat took place on 28

February 1951 near Hoengsong on the central front. Assisting their

ROK allies, the Thai troops, led by Colonel Boriboon Chulacharita,

engaged the North Koreans in a two-hour battle. The Thais and ROK

soldiers attacked the North Koreans in a two-pronged assault. The

action ended with success, the Thais and ROK claiming 50 North

Koreans killed and dozens wounded. The Thais suffered one man

wounded.

While operating with the US 1st Cavalry Division, the Thai contingent

impressed their allies with a strong performance in action

Thai trops attend a wounded comrade

near Uijongbu,

some 30

kilometres northeast of Seoul. This was after the unofficial Chinese

entry into the war which saw UN forces hurled back from the North

Korea-China border. The action was prior to Seoul falling for the

second time.

A UN counter-offensive recovered Seoul and by the end of

April 1951 the front line was established and maintained around

the 38th Parallel, the pre-war boundary between the two Koreas.

Is this the scariest film ever?

Martyrs is being ranked as one of the scariest movies ever

made by virtually everyone who sees it. Martyrs is a French film,

originally released on September 3, 2008. The film is written and

directed by Pascal Laugier who also wrote and directed the thriller

Saint Ange, renamed House of Voices. Martyrs stars Morjana Alaoui

as Anna and Mylene Jampanoi as Lucie with support given by Catherine

Begin as Mademoiselle, Robert Toupin as Le pere, and Isabelle

Chasse as La Creature.

Martyrs begins with a flashback of a news report in

1971 where Lucie, as a young girl, escapes from

captivity and notifies police of her capture. There

is no evidence of any sexual abuse but Lucie bears

several injuries and shows signs of neglect. She is

able to lead police to an old slaughterhouse where she was held cap-

tive but otherwise she can’t

communicate because of the

trauma she has suffered. When

she is placed in a youth home

to live, Lucie is befriended by

Anna. Anna looks after Lucie

and eventually they become

best friends. Lucie, however, is

being stalked by a ghoul taking

the form of a thin, naked

woman with pale gray skin that

cuts and mutilates Lucie. Anna

is sworn to keep Lucie’s secret

about the shadowy creature.

The movie now transports

us 15 years ahead into 1986.

The Belford family is having another

early-morning argument.

As brother, Antoine, and sister,

Marie fight over a love note,

dad tries to make breakfast

while mom in out in the garden

fixing the water. Finally, breakfast

is ready and everyone sits

down to eat when the doorbell

rings. Dad goes to answer the

door only to discover that it’s

Lucie wielding a shotgun. Lucie

pulls the trigger, killing dad,

and proceeds to gruesomely

murder the rest of the family as

well. In the aftermath, Lucie is

again attacked by the creature.

She tries to explain that she did

her job by killing the family but

the creature doesn’t listen and

continues to attack Lucie.

Morjana Alaoui as anna

Mylène Jampanoï as

Lucie

Catherine Begin as Mademoiselle

Still friends, Lucie calls Anna for help. Anna arrives

at the address and asks if these are really the people that

kidnapped and tortured her those many years ago. Lucie

says that they were and she is sure of it. As Anna helps Lucie

bury the bodies, Lucie is attacked by the creature yet again.

Meanwhile, Anna discovers that the mother is not really

dead and tries to get her out of the house. Before she can

get out, Lucie discovers the mother and finishes the job

she started with a hammer. When the mother is dead, Lucie

cries out to the monster yet again in hopes that it is appeased.

Page 38 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

The creature seems

appeased at first and

embraces Lucie in a gentle

hug but soon the creature

begins to cut into her

arms. We are shown now

that Anna cannot see the

monster and an explosive

scene shows how Lucie is

the one making the cuts

on herself. Martyrs then

takes us into Lucie’s mind

to see that the creature is

actually another woman

who was kidnapped and

tortured with Lucie those

many years ago. When Lucie realizes this, she remembers

that she had an opportunity to save the

woman when she escaped but she didn’t. She left

the woman there to continue to be tortured. Later,

we find out what becomes of this other women.

At this point, Lucie is overcome with feelings of

remorse and kills herself with by slicing her own

throat.

Anna discovers Lucie’s body and cleans it up,

wrapping her in a clean cloth. Anna then begins to

attempt to clean up the house when she discovers

a secret tunnel behind a cabinet. Inside is a hidden

staircase that leads down into a large underground

torture chamber. The walls of the complex are

adorned with photos of suffering people. Inside

is a naked woman chained to the wall. A metal blindfold is secured to her head

with rivets. Anna frees the woman and takes her up the stairs. She tries to help

this woman and give her a bath, but the woman is completely out of her mind

and starts mutilating herself and tries to cut off her own arm.

The rest of the film continues in an even more gruesome fashion. The

final 30 minutes include some of the most intense scenes ever caught on film.

You will not only cringe in disgust but you may also retch and feel physically ill.

This is one film that pushes the envelope beyond anything you have ever seen

before. To be sure, Martyrs is not the goriest film ever made but the context and

the combination of sights, sounds, and mood works together to take you to

the edge. The idea that anyone in the real world can be so cruel and heartless is

challenged in Martyrs. These people seem real enough and make you think this

is more than someone’s fantasy. Martyrs finishes with a completely satisfying

ending. Satisfying, however, doesn’t mean you will be expecting it.

One of the best aspects of Martyrs is its originality. Most other modern horror

movies all seem to be just variations on the same thing and once one catches

an audience, like Saw, it is done to death until everyone is sick of it. Although

it seems rushed by this description, Martyrs is actually paced well. Editing work

with different camera angles also helps to create the overall mood of the movie.

Some of the final shots in the movie

turn out to be some of the best and are

executed like a well-written poem.

Martyrs is definitely not for everyone.

The movie is disturbing to be sure.

For those that like to have their notions

about the world challenged, this

is a film that accomplishes just that.

However, the world you are introduced

to is one that you are not sure you are

better off knowing or not.

Another tale from the prolific pen

of Mike Bell.

He left school at fifteen on Friday July 20th

and started work in a Sheffield steel factory

the following Monday. In the blink of

an eye he had married, become the father

of two, divorced and retired. He had spent

nearly fifty years working to the sound of the steam hammer.

The five ton hammer crashed down on the ingots of iron every

minute of every day until the factory closed and it was this that

sent Tony to Thailand, as he put it to his children, ‘for a bit of

peace and quiet.’ He didn’t find it in Pattaya.

Wherever he lodged, the beat of the bass reverberated in

his head. He had thought Thais were shy and retiring people;

polite and respectful to others. In many ways they were until

the music started. Then they would turn up the bass and the

volume to deafening levels. Tony could hear cars approaching

his window a half a mile away, their windscreens trembling with

the resonance from inside. Bars would pump it up till the early

hours and sleep would finally overwhelm him in blessed relief.

His new wife, Lek, couldn’t comprehend the size of the

problem. To her, music was ‘sanook.’ The lateness of the hour

mattered not if they could sleep late in the morning. She’d set

about educating Tony in Thai-ness as soon as they were married.

She taught him the futility of bad temper. Violent and

rude gestures, prolonged sounding of the horn might just

result in the Thai version of road-rage involving the next set of

traffic lights and a gun.

Anthology can be purchases on Amazon as a

Kindle down-load. Alternatively by downloading

the FREE software, you can get the book

as an e-book. The price is $10 - the title is ‘Thai

Tales’.

Mike has also released his collection of

funny articles, some of which were published

in Pattaya One and Pattaya Daily News. Entitled

‘Amusing Thailand - A Survivor’s Guide

to Pattaya’, these can also be purchased in the

same way as above.

A BITTER PEACE

AND QUIET

In his turn Tony tried to explain the effect of a steam hammer

assailing his ear-drums three times a minute for nigh on

fifty years. She could not comprehend the concept of shellshock.

Doctors often suggest that prolonged exposure to loud

music could cause deafness in later life. They never suggest

that noise might leave you more sensitive in your final years. So

they moved to Bang Saray.

It was everything Tony could have hoped for. The up-market

estate was four hundred metres from the traffic noise on

Sukhumvit. High walls insulated the houses from the bustle

of life outside. The estate’s Juristic rules forbade building work

before 9 am and after 6 pm. Even the birds seemed apologetic

about their morning chorus.

Lek, initially skeptical about the move away from shops,

learned to appreciate it. The local Market was three times a

week. The secluded beach was four minutes away and only

ever busy on Sunday. Her life was filled with contentment,

particularly at the change that had come over her husband: he

seemed to float in a pocket of silence; a bubble of serenity. It

lasted nearly a year.

Any sizable living organism attracts parasites: hippos get

birds to feed off tics in their ears; sharks get remora fish to flit

in and out of their mouths cleaning their teeth. Sixty farang

houses were bound to create a symbiotic relationship with the

local community. First came the itinerant food-sellers peddling

som-tam to the residents’ wives. Next came an enterprising

laundry lady who set up a corrugated iron shack to provide

washing and ironing facilities. Then came a hairdresser, a

Mecca for gossip-exchange. Tony minded none of this. They all

kept the peace.

Page 40 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

Then building began on an edifice not fifty metres from

their wall. Rumour had it was going to be a smart Italian

restaurant; a Travel agent; a copy shop; a bar with pool tables.

Tony feared the worst at this latter. In fact, when it came, it was

worse than his most horrible imaginings. There isn’t a word in

English to describe what it was. A Convention centre doesn’t

do it justice. It was a place for ceremonies; funerals, youths entering

the monkhood, wedding receptions, a place for the local

youth to practice producing discordant music at full volume.

The weekends, in particular became hell on earth for

Tony. Saturday nights seemed to be disco or worse, karaoke

nights. Drunken would-be Tata Youngs would warble shrilly off

key. The DJ’s offered some respite haranguing people excitedly

at the top of their voices, but then the boom of the bass sent

tremors through the marital bed. He tried ear-plugs; he tried

whiskey. He even tried sleeping nights away.

Sunday mornings would begin at 6am with the dirge like,

tuneless drum and base signifying a religious ceremony. He

even began to look forward to the moment when these instruments

ceased, to be replaced by the monotony of the chanting

monks. Tony wasn’t alone in his misery. Dougie, a neighbour

had snapped one Saturday night. Afterwards he said he’d only

gone round to ask the proprietor to turn the bass down. His

attempts to smash the speakers had resulted him being given

a good beating by Surapong, the proprietor and twenty of his

customers. Tony put his house on the market.

There were no buyers at any price. Farangs, in the know,

wouldn’t touch the house. Even reducing the house to Thai

price brought no interest. Lek explained, Thais were reluctant

to buy second hand houses lest the previous owner had died

there and the property came complete with ghost. Tony tried

one last throw of the dice.

Surapong watched the farang with suspicion. He didn’t

like them. They were in his country yet they came telling him

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

what to do about making money. They did not realize how

much the bank demanded on the loan for the buildings and

fittings. He was not complaining, another two years at this rate

and he would be home free. This farang appeared drunk or

drugged. All night he had raved, dancing in reckless abandon,

waving his arms about, sweating, showing off in front of his

young wife. It was dangerous behaviour at his age.

Even as the thought crossed his mind, the farang collapsed.

He clutched his chest in pain and fell heavily to the

floor. His wife cradled his head in her lap, imploring someone

to phone an ambulance. Though it arrived within ten minutes,

it was obvious to all that it was too late. The farang had shuddered

and trembled on the floor and then simply died.

His body had been claimed by his children to be buried in

England, Lek tearfully told a crowded hairdresser’s. He had left

her the house and car. His pension would enable her continue

to live here. She saw his face every where she went. She heard

his voice calling for her in the night. He had died happy on

Surapong’s premises; she would never forget that night or the

place; the exact spot right in the middle of Surapong’s dance

hall. The first two Saturday nights, she visited, laying a lotus

flower on the ground. People danced round the flower at a

distance.

Within two months, Surapong was forced to close. Business

dropped like a stone. No one wanted a visitation from

Tony’s ghost. The owner of the laundry made a derisory offer

on the building and to her surprise it was accepted. Peace

returned to Bang Saray and so did Tony.

Tony didn’t enjoy his enforced, long holiday in England,

visiting friends and family. The weather was cold; prices were

expensive and, above all else, he said, “the place was just too

noisy”.

DAYS OUT

Mekong Delta

This month we take a trip down Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.

Less than a two-hour flight away, it’s a quiet and relaxing way to

spend a few days.

Getting there: Take a flight to HCMC. From there, buses

leave regularly for My Tho, the gateway to the Delta. Once in

the Delta, a network of buses and tour companies make it pretty

simple to get around.

The mighty Mekong river empties its vast waters into

southern Vietnam, creating patchwork collection of

fields and waterways. Exploring the towns that sit

around the massive Delta reveals a collection of friendly

locals who are proud of their unique culture, food and

rituals.

After the Mekong flows from the Tibetan

Plateau it travels 4,500km through China, Burma,

Laos, Thailand and Cambodia before finally

reaching Vietnam. One of the world’s truly great

rivers, it then diverges as it meets southern

Vietnam’s lowlands, creating the Mekong Delta.

Exploring the Delta doesn’t mean you

need to do it all by boat. Good bus links and

several new bridges mean transport is easier

than ever. Such convenience is making it a

popular destination for local and foreign visitors.

That said, many towns are still to feel the

impact of such development, and so still have

to contend with pot-holed roads.

If you come here, chances are you will land

in My Tho. It’s not much of a centerpiece, but it

Issue 136 - February 2012

For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng)

does have a pleasant waterfront. In the

evening, locals stroll along here, teenagers

hurl themselves into the water off

the top of boats and food hawkers sell

delicious fried snacks on a stick.

When it comes to things to do

here, options are limited. There is a

large tourist information centre half

way along the main drag, where a

handful of tour companies can offer

help. We found Tieng Giang Tourist

(www.tiengiangtourist.com) to

be pretty helpful. If you want a more

personalized tour, it’s often cheaper to

hire the freelance drivers who can be

found around town. Walk for more than

10 minutes and one will approach, you

offering to help. One such guide, Mr Ty,

was excellent value (mobile: 01 6961

71757).

The perfect place to sit in such

a sleepy town is Lac Hong, a seriously

retro place with saxophones and classic vinyl stuck to the walls.

Elsewhere, there is a 100-year-old Catholic church and there is the

impressive Vinh Trang Pagoda, the largest of its kind in the province.

It’s worth a visit to see the mix of French, Khmer and Vietnamese

styles.

Most of the attractions here are off-shore, though. A series of

islands can easily be visited by taking out a boat for half or full-day

trips. Known as the ‘Coconut Islands’ they contain several touristy

stop-offs – tours round here are pretty slick and well organized.

The dense collection of coconut trees gives the islands its names

and results in some sweet desserts, made with sticky rice, that can’t

be found anywhere else in Vietnam.

A new bridge in My Tho

opened in 2008 and meant

nearby Ben Tre suddenly got

visitors. Ben The gives a far

more authentic slice of Delta

life, with rice fields, chickens

getting right of way on the

roads and small village huts.

Locals are slowly catching on to

its appeal and many now offer

homestays in basic accommodation.

They will often take

visitors out fishing for the day

before returning home for a

dinner and evening around the

karaoke machine.

In the centre of Ben Tre

(which isn’t saying much), there is a novel museum,

complete with anti-US rhetoric and a giant

crocodile skull. Entry is free.

Our favourite spot on the Delta is Vinh Long,

a town with heavy French influence and charm.

About 40 km from My Tho, Vinh Long has its own

islands that can be explored on half-day excursions.

Fruit farms sit all around these islands, making

it a great place to stop off and sample some

of the foods on offer. If you want to head inland,

bicycles can be provided for as little as $3 a day.

Further west sits Tra Vinh, a town heavily

influenced by the Khmer (a large population of

Khmer folk still lives near here). This makes for

interesting-looking temples and local food. Elsewhere,

Can Tho Province has a modern eponymous

main town and a good handful of attractions.

Best of these is the Can Tho Museum, which is free and gives

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

a good explanation of what local life is like here. Best

of all though is the main market, which is filled with

fresh fruit, while the seafront restaurants are good, if

you fancy a dish of snake or turtle.

The other main draw in the Delta is very different

from everything else there. Phu Quoc Island is a fastdeveloping

haven for gamblers, as giant casinos are

opening. It’s also a pleasant beach resort, with 150km

of sandy coastline. It has a chequered history – the

French occupied the island in the 19th century and

opened a prison there – but today it is better known

for its luxurious resorts. The old prison is actually an attraction

in its own right. Displays of torture equipment

and stories of prisoners who tried to escape make it

worth a look.

Phu Quoc still retains a largely serene, natural feel

thanks to a local population

that has lived there for generations.

For a classy souvenir,

Treasures From the Deep

(www.treasuresfromthedeep.

com ) tells the story of the

high-quality pearls that are

sold here, along with a story

about how local people have

collected them.

The Delta has a whole

heap of attractions ready to be

explored and now is the time to

go, before they build even more

bridges and make it too easy to

get around.

TRIP TO CHIANG MAI

Page 44

Article kindly submitted by Wilson

In two parts - Part 1

The New Year was looming, and I had the choice of

staying in Pattaya, or heading off elsewhere to see

the old year out. My recent trip to Chiang Mai had

been Ok but left many things undone, so I decided

to rectify this and revisit the area.

About a week before, I went to Bangkok to book the train,

and managed to get almost the last tickets available for both the

outward and return journeys. On my return to Pattaya, I found that

the hotel I usually stay at to be fully booked and it took a couple

of hours of trawling the ‘net’ before I found a place that had a

vacancy.

Arriving at Hua Lamphong station on the evening of 30th

December, it seemed like the whole of Bangkok was on the move

for the holiday period. The 19.35 train to Chiang Mai should

have left from Platform 3, but standing there in its place was a

train that took you back in time to the days of luxury train travel,

‘The Eastern and Orient Express’ bound for Singapore via Kuala

Lumpur , The rear portion of the last carriage had open sides as

an observation car, walking alongside the train revealed palatial

wood panelled compartments and a dining car , tables complete

with lamps, silver cutlery, cut glass wine goblets and Champagne

buckets. At least six chefs in tall hats were preparing what must

have been a feast of culinary delights, for those aboard. One can

only imagine the cost of travelling in the decadent and luxurious

style of an age gone by.

Issue 136 - February 2012

For those merely mortals like

myself, we were herded to platform

6, to which our ‘Special Express’ had

been diverted. At 19.35, the time it

was due to depart, it arrived at the

platform for us to board, having

located our allocated upper bunks,

we awaited for our ‘Express’ to depart,

which it did an hour late. The initial

part of our journey was more like a

commuter train than an ‘Express’ as it

lumbered slowly along with frequent

stops, although none of them at a

station. The lights in the sleeping car

were left blazing all night, despite

each bunk having individual lighting.

The arrival time according to the

timetable was 8.45am, but of course

this was never going to be achievable

given our delayed departure. Two

hours out from Chiang Mai at 10am,

travelling through the jungle on an

upgrade, the train got slower and slower until we came to a halt, it

seems that the engine did not have enough power to get us over

the incline, and so we began to move in reverse, all the way back

to the last station where a ‘down train’ could pass, and a second

engine summoned from Lampang to help get us up and over the

hill. Having eventually overcome this obstacle the ‘Express’ arrived

at its destination at 1.15pm , some four and a half hours late. Having

phoned ahead to the hotel to advise of our impending late

arrival, we were told not to worry, as the train frequently doesn’t

arrive until 4pm!!. One wonders at the wisdom of giving an arrival

time at all, as we were informed that it never arrives on schedule

anyway.

After checking in at the hotel, the next priority was to hire

a motorbike, but again it seemed the world and its wife wanted

to do the same and it was some three hours before we located a

renter with a motorcycle. At 1000Bt for four days hire, I considered

it expensive, especially as I’d just returned a motorcycle I’d had on

hire in Pattaya which had cost me 3,000Bt for six weeks.

In the evening we visited the Night Bazaar, (top picture

next page) like every market in Thailand, the items on offer are

the same, the only difference being the name on the ‘T’ shirts,

which of course in this case was ‘Chiang Mai’. It being New Years

Eve, we walked to the moat and City Walls, which encircle it, and

were fortunate to find a concrete bench to sit upon. The sky was

full of ‘floating lanterns’, obviously being released from all parts

of the City and its surrounds. On the other side of the ‘moat’ we

watched as revellers, lit and released lanterns, some unsuccessfully

as they became entrapped in the trees on their journey

skywards. Fireworks were being set off all the time, and all around

us by individuals, some of which exploded prematurely causing

those in the immediate vicinity

to scatter. Nearby where

we were sitting, a busker

played ‘Old Lang Syne’ on a

Saxophone accompanied by a

passer by on a ‘penny whistle’.

At midnight and our entry into

the New year, the sky exploded

as fireworks from all around the

City were propelled into the air,

it was like being in the centre

of a 360 degree display and accompanied

by the noise of artillery

fire. Eventually we made

our way back to the hotel along

streets littered with the remnants

of spent pyrotechnics .

(Middle picture) unfortunately

it appeared that most of The author of the article, Wilson and his

to the Temple, fortunately for us, my motorcycle skills, honed in

Pattaya, made short shrift of the traffic problems with various

undertaking, overtaking, and straight down the middle manoeuvres,

although I imagine that some of those in gridlocked vehicles

would have taken several hours to reach their destination. We had

some respite from traffic congestion for about fifteen kilometres,

before encountering more traffic jams some three kilometres

from the Temple, negotiating these was a little more difficult due

to the road being quite steep in places and having many hairpin

bends, but all was overcome and we arrived a little over an hour

from setting off. To get to the Temple, one has to climb some three

hundred steps, difficult enough under normal circumstances,

but even more so given the volume of visitors

moving both up and down, plus the number of children

in ‘costume’ sitting on the stairs at regular intervals hoping

to have their picture taken, and receive a ‘tip’ for their

trouble.

After having escaped the throngs at the Temple, we

continued onward and upward along the twisting mountain

road to Bhubing Palace, where the Royal Family stays

during seasonal visits. The gardens are beautifully laid

out with all manner of colourful blooms and plants. The

‘water reservoir’ contains the ‘Fountain of Celestial Water

of People’, at all areas of the gardens,

tranquil music is playing, giving a

relaxing feeling to the whole experience.

Still continuing up further

into the mountains we came to Doi

Pui Mong Hill Tribe village, (bottom

picture) sustained by tourism

there were many opportunities to

purchase local crafts at a considerable

discount for the same items

in the City, visitors could also hire

traditional costumes at 30Bt each, to

wear during their visit, and of course

be photographed in, mainly by the

waterfall, and in the gardens which

are also a feature of the village.

Our return journey to the

hotel, whilst again encountering

considerable traffic was a little easier

and enabled us to arrive back before

darkness fell.

Exploring Pattaya & Beyond

It is common for Western companies and governments to

pay an additional compensation to staff for the “hardship”

of being posted abroad. I have always thought that one

of the great scams of the ages for eligible employees.

I mean, seriously, working and living in Hong Kong or

Tokyo or Rio or Buenos Aires is a hardship?

But since moving first to Thailand and then eventually to

Cambodia, I’ve had to rethink my position – and my understanding

of hardship.

You see, our cable TV network, which originates in Thailand,

does not carry games of the National Football League, the NFL,

the crowning glory of American football.

The rest of the world may well scoff at our National Game.

In well over a decade of living in the Philippines, Thailand,

and now Cambodia I’ve come to respect and even enjoy “real”

football. It can, indeed, be a “beautiful game:” I even recently

watched a Bundesliga match and found it well played and competitive!

BUT. No NFL? At all? Not even one game weekly? Now, that

is a hardship.

Page 46

Issue 136 - February 2012

This topic came to mind last night while reading a series of

blog posts written a year ago and more by a young Canadian

man who’d said he’d come to Cambodia to work as an unpaid

volunteer English teacher at a village near Siem Reap.

After two months in-country he wrote the first of a series of

posts excoriating all things Khmer. They were all

stupid, lazy, corrupt, dangerous, and rude. Former

Khmer Rouge goons roamed the countryside

raping and murdering with impunity, sadists

in saffron robes. And it didn’t take a careful reading-between-the-lines

to catch his meaning. He

wrote it literally as reported above. Well, not the

line about sadists in saffron robes – that’s mine.


So outrageous, racist, arrogant and stupid

were his remarks that reading them make me

remember having made similar remarks about

Filipinos during my decade-plus-living there.

Such comments were both common and unchallenged

among foreigners living in the Philippines.

I also remembered hearing the same kind

of slurs about Thais in the two years I lived there.

Wow! Was I – were we – all such assholes that we

would slander an entire people because some

(OK, maybe many) of them did us wrong?

So it appears.


Which leads to the next obvious question: Why are we

here? No, no, not “what does it all mean?” Why have we foreigners

chosen to live in places with cultures so – well, foreign to our

For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng)

own?

Unless you work in a multinational company or big NGO

and get that cushy hardship stipend (in which case the answer

is obvious and you need read no further) the answer is likely

somewhat complex.

Because you can live much better on your retirement check

here than you can back home. Because you think back home

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

has gone all to hell. Because you still crave a sex life unavailable

back home. Because it feels good to help a hardworking, impoverished

people dig and claw their way up from inherited misery.

Because you like the weather. Likely you’d check more than one

of the above. For me, it’s all the above.


Actually, I haven’t had any cultural issues with Khmer

people in the year-plus that we’ve lived here. Well, other than the

hideous noise they blast at obscene volume whenever there’s a

wedding or funeral. But everybody – including Khmers – hates

that. The other big issue I have with local folk is their just awful

driving habits, but I understand that they’ve had no driver training

and the police don’t enforce any traffic laws (except the one

requiring motorbike drivers to wear helmets, and that’s enforced

strictly to extort bribes).

Which incidentally leads to an unrelated observation:

Almost all Khmer motorbike riders in Siem Reap wear helmets. It

seems that law enforcement does work.

There’s really only one ethnic group that I just can’t get

along with. No, not Russians. And no, not Indians. French.

Is there a more smug, arrogant, rude race on earth? Not

that I know of. I had to actually throw one French couple out of

our restaurant not long ago for accusing us of watering our fresh

coconuts. That’s right, they accused us of refilling coconut shells

with water. To beat them out of the $1 we charge for a fresh

coconut.

We were deeply offended that they thought we’d cheat

them - for $1. Now, if it was $100, I’d consider it. But $1? Damn

frogs. Where’s the gratitude? Le Grand Royale my ass. They’re Big

Macs, dammit!


And what’s with this

crap of eating baked beans

with breakfast? But I’ll save

that for another day…


Anyway, here’s hoping

that 2012 will be a healthy,

peaceful, and prosperous

year for us all. And for all our

Khmer, Thai, and Filipino

neighbors, as well.

PCEC Meeting – Monthly Review – December 2011

The Pattaya City Expats Club (PCEC) meets every Sunday at Amari Orchid Resort’s The Tavern by the Sea Restaurant at the northern end

of Pattaya Beach Road. For more information regarding not only the PCEC Sunday meetings, but also the large number of mid-week activities,

visit the Club’s website at www.pattayacityexpatsclub.com. The website also has useful information about living in Thailand and about Thai

immigration and visa requirements. If you would like a copy of the Club’s weekly Newsletter emailed to you, you can subscribe by visiting the

Club’s website.

The meeting atmosphere is always relaxed, informal and friendly with everyone being welcome. The format of the meeting is similar each

week. There is usually a guest speaker, sometimes more than one, on topics of interest to Expats. In addition to announcement of forthcoming

events in and around Pattaya, the Open Forum, which follows the regular program, is always a lively and entertaining session, when questions

can be asked or information exchanged about Expat living in Thailand and Pattaya in particular. If you weren’t there, here are the highlights of

the meetings for each Sunday in December 2011 – the Club’s Newsletter on their website contains a more detailed description of the presentations

On December 4, the guest speaker was Michael Flinn, (Pictured

below) a life-long scholar in the history and development

of human consciousness,

religion, art, civilization and

human behaviour. Michael

started his presentation by

explaining how he got into

art and philosophy. After

he graduated in 1964, he

travelled to Europe where

he had the opportunity to

study architecture and the

works of the great philosophers.

He then explained

how this led to his studies

on the consciousness of

man; becoming self aware. He concluded that no matter how

much you study human consciousness, you still will not really

gain an understanding of the imponderable.

Old landmines and explosive remnants of war continue

to kill and maim people today. This was the message at the

PCEC’s Sunday, December

11 meeting. The Club

welcomed two representatives

of the Mine

Action Department of

the Norwegian People’s

Aid organization. Mr. Lee

Moroney, (Pictured alongside)

Program Manager in

Thailand and Mr. Jan Erik

in Cambodia described

their assistance to those

two countries in getting

rid of this old explosive ordinance left over from past wars. They

pointed out that in both Thailand and Cambodia; the primary effort

is to reclaim land for habitation and use. Consequently, they

give priority to such areas rather than clearing known mined

areas where the land has no suitable use.

The third Sunday, December 18, the Club had its Christmas

celebration. (Pictures next page) During the past three years, it

has been almost standing room only when the Children’s Choir

from Pattaya Orphanage comes to the meeting to share the spirit

of Christmas. This year was no exception. Mrs. Radchada Chomjinda

(Khun Toy) from Pattaya Orphanage said it was a privilege

for the children from the Orphanage to be back again this year to

sing Christmas Carols for the Club. Several young ladies started

with a couple of dances, one traditional Thai and the other a bit

more modern. Then, about 50 children in choir robes came in and

sang several Carols. While they were singing “Santa Claus is Coming

to Town,” Santa appear ed with a bag full of goodies, which

he passed out to the smiling children while Khun Toy gave a brief

history on the Orphanage.

Movie making in the 1960’s was the topic at the Pattaya City

Expats Club meeting on Sunday, December 25. There were over

80 members and guests present on Christmas Day to hear Pattaya

resident Alfred Avallone, (Pictured below) talk about his career as

a Hollywood actor. He mentioned his studying at The American

Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York at the same time as many later

movie stars, such as Grace Kelly and Anne Bancroft. He explained

how he went from acting on the New York stage to acting in films

when he moved to Hollywood.

He described

some of the aspects of

Hollywood film making

and then presented

a video clip showing

him acting in the Blake

Edward’s movie “Experiment

in Terror” starring

Glenn Ford and Lee

Remick. He also commented

on some of the

differences between

movies and actors of

that period with movies

and actors of today.

One Beer too Many

Disclaimer. Any similarity to any person/s or events

you might have heard of are entirely coincidental. The

characters depicted in this story are figments of the author’s

imagination.

Taken from Les Abbey’s Soi Shanties

***********************************************

It was only a few beers into the afternoon session at Barry’s

bar but the conversation was about the one beer too

many, that when drunk causes a grown man to topple

over or perform some embarrassing misdeed. It had probably

started because Robert, who had been in the bar

until late yesterday, but missing so far today, had made a bit of a

fool of himself last night.

Not that Robert had done that much according to Barry,

who had been talking with him right up until the moment that

Robert had yawned, closed his eyes, leant back on his stool and

then kept on going until hitting the floor. Barry had said that the

conversation was getting strange as he didn’t think himself and

Robert were talking about the same thing anymore. Tim asked

Barry how many beers Robert had drunk, but Barry wasn’t sure

except he had drunk less than half of the last beer Singha. Barry

also reminded the drinkers

that Robert still owed for his

bar bill.

Tim, a regular customer,

said “You can always

tell when Jon Slocum has

had too much. He always

drops his pants and dances

around the bar.”

Les followed that

with “Then again Tim the

fact that he always does it

should tell us a bit more

than that.”

“What do you mean

Les?” asked Tim.

“Well if he always does

it, you have to suspect that

it’s in his mind to start with.

The extra beer may give him courage, but he wants to expose

himself anyway. You know, he’s one of those exhibitionists. He has

to put on a show. If it wasn’t for us he would be flashing at some

little old lady in the street. In fact it wouldn’t surprise me if one

day we heard he had been arrested for that.”

“I wish he learned to play the guitar instead.” added Tim. “It’s

such an ugly site when he’s in full swing.”

“And it’s not as if he has that much to be proud of.” finished

Les to the accompaniment of laughter from the drinkers.

Pat Morrison started to tell his story. “A couple of months

ago I had one too many and it got me into some right trouble.”

he said. “I had just got in that evening from Libya via Rome and

had been drinking on the plane for the last few hours. I got a taxi

to the hotel, dropped off my bags and made my way to the Soi. I

stopped here first and had a beer didn’t I Barry?”

“That’s right.” answered Barry who started to grin.

“Said hello to you Les,” and turning Tim, said “and you too

Tim. I remember that.”

Both Les and Tim nodded

their assent.

“Then as always on a first

night in I walked down the

Soi to say my hellos and see

what’s new going on. I figured

I would find a girlfriend too.”

“So what happened?”

asked Tim.

“Well you have to remember

I was getting a bit

tired by then and that’s my

excuse. I had a couple beers

in various bars and then saw

a new bar had opened right

down the end. I thought I

have to go and check it out.

I could see the name board

said ‘Bullshooters’ and had a

picture of dartboard on it.”

Page 52 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

As Pat finished the last sentence there was laughter

from a few of the drinkers.

Pat continued “It’s OK you lot laughing but I

thought a game of darts is always fun with the bar

girls. I went through the door and it was a bit dark

inside. I thought I would sit down for a few minutes. A

nice looking girl came over and took my drink order,

but before it even came to the table I had dozed off.

Next thing I remember I’m being shaken awake and

another girl is telling me it’s throwing out time, two in

the morning. I asked for a fresh beer and whatever she

wanted to drink and off she went to get it.”

“So I’m coming too now and looking around

the bar. It’s still fairly crowded but I don’t recognize

anyone, customers or girls, which seemed unusual. I’m

thinking the bar owner must have gone upcountry

and got a whole bunch of new girls. So the girl comes

back with the beer and her drink, puts the new bill in

the cup and sits down with me. She chats away and

her English isn’t bad and I’m thinking I may have company

tonight.”

Pat takes a swallow of his beer.

One of the younger drinkers says “So go on Pat. I

can’t say I remember that bar.”

Barry answers. “No it didn’t last very long. It was

gone in a month.”

Pat picks up the story. “Well they didn’t seem

in that much of hurry to get the customers out and

we are chatting away. The girl, I think her name was

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

Joy, was asking me about my

hotel and I thinking well my

evening’s sorted. Then she

grabs my hand and puts it on

her lap. Now straight away I

realize that there something

very wrong here. I said to her,

‘Is that what I think it is?’ and

she gives a knowing smile and

nods her head. Then I start

to look around the bar again

and see that maybe the girls

Adam’s apples are a little too

large and when they talk just

maybe their voices are a wee

bit to low.”

Pat takes another gulp

of his beer but he knows he

has the audience in his hand

so he drags it out a few extra

seconds. “Well as the Sunday

tabloids used to say, ‘I made

my excuses and left’. What I was really worried about was seeing any of you

guys and having to explain I had been sleeping in the Bullshooters for three

hours and didn’t know what sort of bar it was, which I certainly didn’t I’ll have

you all know. Of course the bull’s eye the customers were shooting for had

nothing to do with darts.”

“You didn’t have an epiphany then Pat?” said Les.

“What does that mean Les?” asked Pat.

“You know, a conversion, like Saint Paul on the road to Damascus. As

our friend Tommy Tee used to say, ‘Once you had the real thing, women are

second best’.”

PATTAYA TRADER’S POET’S CORNER

Dear Reader.

With this months poetry I had a short message from Capn’ Mark back in UK. Seems he’s (like many

other young mn) unemployed. This of course gives him plenty of time to write such nice words as we

are fortunate enough to get to publish every month.

N

O-ZODIAC-SIGN-READER-CURE

Looking at the stars for far-too-long

you spy potatoes walking on the moon.

Your girlfriend the so-pale ghost

says the-men-in-white-coats will take

you soon,

while all my pals the fairy-folk

tell me you are doubtless a loon

and that next-door’s pet dragon

runs wild at the sounds from your room.

Pick-up your daily newspaper now

and go read your horoscope:

‘He who spies potatoes walking on the

moon

is beyond all help but beyond all hope’ !

SHAPELY-CHARMER

Like a camel with an extra hump,

she had three moony-round-breasts;

the tips pointy as are pyramids

or the beak of a phoenix on her flesh

in the form of a fine-tattoo.

Strange snake-charming lady, ooh !

HIMALAYAN HYMNS

At the foot of the Himalayas

and looking way up ahead,

you’ve your hymns and your hopes,

got your Tibetan Book Of The Dead.

Surely best to aim far higher,

to make your mission to the moon.

You’ll fall short of the target

but will reach the top real soon.

Beware the Abominable Snowmen

on whose mountains you’ll intrude,

and stick to the path of the Buddha

in your spiritual climb and solitude.

PUNTER-POEM

I am with Mr Sillitoe

who wrote of punting down river.

Through Blake’s greener England to go

in very sunny weather.

To hear a sedge-warbler sound,

see the odd mink or rarer otter.

City boat-racers hear then my song:

“I am punting for Albion”.

Pictured here (foreground):

Captain Mark on his new

boat ‘The Pork Pie’

BRIDE-IN-BLACK

It is your funeral

now you are tied

to the girl who is

your black-gowned bride.

You think the gown white,

white as virgin snow,

but dark the heart

of the black-widow.

It is your funeral,

her veil now lift.

Kiss the bride

and yes, death kiss.

THE-COOL-CALLED-

NORTHERN-THAI-LADY

One of the Thai-girls I came to know

gave herself the nickname Snow.

On the slopes of her soft-thighs

my fingers slowly skied down-wise.

Upon the peaks of her breasts

my climbing lips came to rest.

She’d chosen the nickname Snow

as it’s cooler the more North you go.

A LADY LIBERTINE

The libertine lady,

she pats her pet.

She has him in

her web, her net.

There are some

who only feel free

when somebody else

is down on bent-knee.

WHAT-A-CARRY-ON-

QUASIMODO

You carry a hump this life-long day,

and in your head are clappers that

clang.

The bells !! The bells !! They have their

way.

You feel like the Hunchback of Notre-

Dame.

A-NEEDLE-ARM

One thing was for sure - it was just as hot.

On his 19 hour flight from Los Angeles,

Carl had been wondering what to expect

when he arrived in Pattaya. Having read

the guide books and watched a few videos

posted on the internet, he knew he was going to be in for

a culture shock. At least the blast of hot air that welcomed

him as he stepped out of the aircraft was the same as he

remembered it. As the taxi neared his destination he could

see the hotels and apartment blocks reaching skyward. It

seemed to Carl that there

would be little prospect

of anything being left to

rekindle his memories.

But despite this realisation

that perhaps his trip might

not fulfill all of his expectations,

he was glad he

was there. He’d promised

himself many years ago

that he would return.

His first and only

other time in Pattaya had

been 43 years earlier. He

had been drafted into the

US Marine Corps when

he reached the age that

required young men to

partake in the war that

his country was waging

in south east Asia. At the

time he had no opinion

one way or the other as to

the righteousness of the

conflict. He was not long out of high school and knew little

of the communist cause in that part of the world or why his

country felt that they should take it upon themselves to go to

war. He figured that he would do his bit, see a few things that

he wouldn’t otherwise, and be welcomed back home a hero

when his tour of duty was over. The fact that events didn’t

turn out like that had bothered him since, but what’s done is

done and this vacation would go a long way to closing the

chapter in his life which he felt must be done before his time

was up.

He’d been sent to Pattaya not long after it had first

become popular as an R &

R destination for American

GI’s. His stay was an

enforced one after he had

been wounded in the

battle for Hue during the

Tet offensive of 1968. His

only piece of good fortune

during the incident was that

a member of his platoon

had risked his own life to

drag him to safety before

the mortars finished off the

troops that were unable to

get back. Carl remembered

vividly the moment his

saviour was standing over

him, looking deep into his

eyes as if to see if there was

life there. He remembered

looking back into the steelyblue

eyes of the marine with

enough determination to

persuade him that saving

Carl was worth the risk.

It was a month later that Carl found himself in Pattaya.

He had been very lucky. His left femur had been fractured

and the shrapnel which had penetrated his abdomen had

avoided his vital organs. After a blood transfusion and having

his leg put in plaster, Carl was evacuated to Pattaya. It looked

like the conflict had some way to go yet, and the Military had

decided that troops in Carl’s situation may well be called upon

to return to combat once they were fit enough to do so. He

was staying in one of a number of small, ramshackle beachfront

guesthouses that had sprung up seemingly overnight to

meet the needs of the ever increasing numbers of US servicemen

who had the opportunity to escape the front line one

way or another. Carl had been there for a week or so and he

was out on his daily walk to the bamboo shack which passed

as the local bar at the end of the beach. Even though he was

still using crutches and was advised that the exercise would

help him recover his mobility, the serenity of the place and

the smiling faces of the locals meant he would have done it

anyway.

He stopped at the bar and ordered a beer. As he took a

satisfying swig from the ice cold bottle, a voice at the other

end of the bar said

“Are these the lengths we have to go to just to get a cold

beer and a holiday?” Carl turned to see the soldier who had

saved his life. He had been shot a week later and although

not as badly wounded as Carl, he’d been sent to Pattaya to

recuperate. His name was Gene. After talking about the

latest on the war, they proceeded to empty the ice box of its

beer bottles and in the course of doing so, strengthened a

bond that only exists between men flung together by circumstances

such as theirs. The two men met every day for the

time that their respective stays in Pattaya overlapped. They

knew that they were likely to be assigned to different units

when they returned to the battlefield, so before parting they

exchanged addresses and promised to meet up once the war

was over. As Gene was driven away to return to Vietnam, Carl

remembered shouting “I owe you one Gene!”

That was the last they saw of each other. Carl never

fully recovered and was sent back to the USA. His previous

thoughts of being welcomed back as a hero were immediately

shattered as the casualties were mounting and the anti-war

movement was just taking off. He tried to trace Gene. The

Army said he’d seen out his tour and had left the military. Carl

wrote to the only address he had for Gene, but never received

a reply. This trip to Pattaya was in a way his farewell to the

man who saved his life. If he couldn’t say it face to face, at

least he go to the place he’d last seen the man who had given

him 43 years of life he would not have otherwise had.

The Pattaya of the 1960’s was vastly different to what

now confronted Carl. The peace and quiet had been lost to

incessant traffic noise and blaring music. What had once

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

been a tropical idyll had become a brash, smelly, congested

metropolis. Be that as it may, Carl wasn’t there for a holiday

- he was there to remember a friend. He soon realised that

searching for the location of the bar on the beach was going

to be fruitless. He remembered it was at the southern end

of the beach, close to an old wooden jetty. He decided that

the modern pier at the northern end of Walking Street was as

near as he was going to get and he would go out to the bar

at the end of the pier, buy two bottles of beer, drink one, and

have a few minutes of silent reflection.

On his last day in Pattaya Carl duly paid homage to

his friend as planned. He was making his way back to his

hotel when what should have been an uneventful end to

his trip, was dramatically interrupted. He was just about to

cross Beach Road, when the Thai lady walking in front of him

tripped on the kerb and fell out into the oncoming traffic.

Carl instinctively grabbed her by her shoulders as she was falling,

and pushed her back towards the pavement, thus saving

her from certain serious injury. In the process, the impetus

caused him to fall in the road and he was struck by a passing

taxi. Fortunately it was a glancing blow and after some onthe-spot

first aid, Carl felt OK. The lady concerned had stayed

to make sure that Carl was not badly hurt.

She said that she lived nearby, and felt that the least she

could do would be to offer him a cup of tea or coffee and the

chance to sit down for a while as he was still clearly shaken.

Carl accepted and five minutes later they entered her second

floor apartment in a nearby Soi. As he sat in the kitchen, Carl

observed his surroundings. He glanced at some photos on

the wall and caught his breath.

The lady saw this reaction and asked him what was the

matter. Looking down at Carl from a Polaroid photo pinned

to the wall was Gene. Older - but those piercing blue eyes

were unmistakable. “You know this man?” the woman asked.

Carl explained the connection and the reason for his visit to

Pattaya. The woman for her part, went on to tell Carl that she

had met Gene 35 years ago when he came to Pattaya, they

married and he never returned to America. She had worked

there as a young girl when the town was just beginning

to grow. He’d said when they first met that the place held

memories for him but had never elaborated. Now she knew

why and was glad. Gene had died five years earlier.

The significance of the day’s events had not been lost on

Gene’s wife. “My husband saved your life, and now you save

mine”. Carl felt a sense of contentment as he remembered

his last words to Gene as they parted all those years ago. His

debt was paid

Who Do You Contact for Financial

Over the years I have written many articles on the

above subject.

Advice Offshore ?

The main thrust has always been to try and find

a long established financial adviser who has a few

attributes that make it conducive for you to do business with him.

When you meet a broker canvassing for your business here

are a few questions you should put to him to help determine if he is

right for you.

How long have you been in the business and who have you

worked with? If he’s had 20 years experience selling double glazing

and two pushing investments then perhaps you should look further.

What basic financial qualifications do you have and where

were they obtained?

All is not lost with this individual if he has no certificates as you

may consider that the biggest rouges in financial history have been

dripping in financial qualifications.

However in reality if your potential broker does not have a

basic financial planning qualification it may be best that you keep

looking.

In a non regulated environment like Thailand it is very important

that your adviser has a base here, owns property here and

perhaps has a wife and child here.

The main reason for this is self evident. If your broker has no

commitment to Thailand what level of service do you really expect

after he has been paid his commission.

Try also and avoid drunks. Yes they operate here and despite

the confidentiality of offshore investing it is not much good when

your broker gets drunk. What do they say about a drunk can never

keep a secret?

The most obvious thing never to do is give any money to a

broker here. If you do then no one will sympathise with you when

you lose it all.

Some financial advice from David Thrifty

I have always cautioned against using International banks

mainly because the only time they will want to meet up with

you is when you have more money to invest.

But now comes the news that HSBC has been fined 10.5

million pounds for miss-selling investment bonds to elderly

people in care. HSBC will pay 29 million compensation and said

it was “profoundly sorry”

The problem for HSBC is that they made more in commission

from selling these bonds to people with a couple of years

to live than the fine that has been imposed.

Heres how their scam worked.

Elderly customers paid a 5% up front charge for the investments

followed by 1% a year.

Average investment size was 115,000 and many of the

elderly were reliant on this to pay their care bills

They were recommending that people invest in these

products for at least five years. However because many had a

life expectancy of less than five years they started to withdraw

from the investments sooner than expected.

The combination of withdrawals and charges meant that

capital was eaten away quicker than should have been the case

if the investments had been sold properly.

The bank then made the following statement.

“This should not have happened and I am profoundly

sorry that it did. We have high values here at HSBC and this

runs contrary to everything that we stand for. That is why when

we suspected that everything was not right we took action”

That is all very well of course but it is hard to stomach that

a company which globally reported pre tax profits of 11 Billion

dollars for the first six months of 2011 finished the year being

fined for ripping off pensioners getting ready to die.

Page 58 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

Is it any wonder the Occupy Wall Street protestors are out on

the street?

And there not the only bank in the rip off business.

Coutts bankers to the Queen fined 6.3 million sterling for

selling AIG bonds as low risk.

Credit Susisse fined 5.95 million sterling for advice failures

when selling complex financial products.

The problem for me is that when any investment company

cheats its clients some of the bad publicity rubs off on all brokers

including myself who has tried to be honest with our clients over

the past fifteen years here in Thailand.

The “High Standards” professed by HSBC have always been

endemic within our brokerage. The difference is that we practice

them.

Amy Winehouse - Lioness: Hidden Treasures

Verdict: 7/10

When celebrities die young, there

is a tendency to re-hash any

unreleased material and offer it

to fans. After Tupac was gunned

down, we had every line he’d ever

recorded re-mixed and somehow made into a song.

When Michael Jackson died songs that didn’t quite

do him justice suddenly ended up on new albums.

However, with Amy Winehouse things are

thankfully very different. Before she died of alcohol

poisoning earlier this year, she had already recorded

the vast majority of what was going to be her third

album. Tragically, she never got to hear it completely

finished, but there was enough there for producers

to work on.

Lioness: Hidden Treasure is a collection of a

dozen completely new tracks or new versions, with a

couple of cover versions thrown in.

Producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi have

done an incredible job of preserving the brilliance of

Winehouse’s vocals and creating something that she

would have been proud of.

Hearing Winehouse sing certain lines is now of

course filled with irony and pathos, but even if she

had lived, the songs would have been poignant and

memorable.

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

The Sixties’ feel is

still there, notably on lead

single ‘Our Day Will Come’,

which was first recorded

by Ruby and The Romantics

This isn’t simply

Winehouse’s third album

though, here there are

even tracks predate her

2003 debut album. ‘The

Girl from Ipanema’ is

given a jazzy flavor here,

while other brilliant covers

include The Shirelles’

‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?’ and The Zuton’s ‘Valerie’.

Of the original songs here, ‘Halftime’ is a decade old but sounds fresh and

soulful thanks to Winehouse’s timeless vocals.

Some duets are interesting, who would have thought that ‘Smoke’ filled

with a rap from Nas would work, or that her last studio recording with veteran

singer Tony Bennett would be so good. But it is: Bennett and Winehouse’s

Body and Soul is an old jazz track that oozes class.

Winehouse would never have released an album like this, the older tracks

are clearly there to make up for a vacuum of new material, but despite this

anything new from Winehouse is a bonus. She may have messed up her glorious

talent but what she did do in her short career will last for years.

Anthony Hamilton - Back to Love

Verdict: 8/10

Anthony Hamilton (the singer, not the snooker star) has one hell

of a soul voice. His last album The Point of it All was pretty impressive,

but Back to Love easily surpasses it.

With a production team that includes Kenny “Babyface”

Edmonds, Salaam Remi and Kelvin Wooten, you’d expect it to sound slick, and

it doesn’t disappoint.

Grammy-award winning Hamilton simply has a voice that sounds like

honey, and the first single ‘Woo’ is a great example of this. There are a good

range of uptempo tracks for dance fans and some more slower, reflective

numbers. The r’n’b style is contemporary but with a few hints of the old school

Page 60 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

sound, such as the excellent opener ‘Mad’, a funky collection of

horns, guitar and harmonica.

‘Who’s Lovin You’ is a charming lament about unrequited love

that while the duet with Keri Hilson, ‘Never Let Go’ works surprisingly

well despite her more urban feel.

If you get hold of the deluxe version, you can also enjoy ‘More

Than Enough’, where Hamilton and his band let loose that sees

them jam superbly.

If you like true soul music, then Hamilton is just about the

best out there at what he does.

Anthony Hamilton is going to become a father again. His wife Tarsha

is pregnant again. “Well, since we’re here, yes. I just found out.Hopefully

this one’s a girl”, the R & B singer announced during an appearance on Live! With Kelly on Tuesday (December 13).

Hamilton and his wife are already parents to twin boys, Nolan and Aaron, born in November of last year. The Grammy winner also has three

sons from previous relationships: Anthony, 21, Romero, 19 and Tristan, 14.

Kelly Rowland - Here I Am

Verdict: 6/10

Kelly Rowland has done a pretty good job of living in

the shadow of Beyonce. While her former Destiny’s

Child colleague has gone on to become a global

superstar, Rowland has made a solid niche for herself

as a dance-techno star.

Aside from having the best set of pins in Destiny’s Child,

Rowland was also a fine singer.

She’s already had eight top 10 songs in the UK and landed a

spot as a judge on talent shows. ‘Here I Am’ doesn’t quite live up

to her previous efforts, though.

While on the X Factor she comes across as being ballsy and

outgoing, the songs here rather lack power and effect. The album

begins with mid-tempo tracks overloaded with synth sounds that

have the effect of watering down the songs. Some numbers work

well, we quite like ‘I’m Dat Chick’, but ultimately you end up wondering

if she really has the attitude to match the lyrics. Beyonce

had no bother throwing aside her Christian beliefs to cultivate a

raunchy, sexual image, but with Rowland you wonder if she’s just

a bit too nice to do that convincingly.

The idea of getting Lil Wayne to help out is therefore in-

spired as it does add

some punch, and

his appearance lifts

things well on ‘Motivation’.

The second

half of the album is

far more interesting.

Summer hit ‘What

a Feeling?’ ticks all

the right boxes and

a few collaborations

with DJ extraordinaire

David Guetta

can’t fail to work.

Single ‘Down

For Whatever’ does a

good job of persuading

us that Rowland

really is a sex kitten, while ‘Whatever’ is far more urban. Rowland

wisely has done a good job of trying to copy Beyonce, and with a

few stronger dance tracks at the start this really would have been

the CD to push her career on.

“I would kill everyone in this room for a drop of sweet beer.”

– Homer Simpson

My British friends will appreciate this one:

“Give my people plenty of beer, good beer, and cheap beer,

and you will have no revolution among them.”—Queen Victoria

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”

– Benjamin Franklin

From the illustrious Billy Carter (brother of former President of the

“Paintings are like a beer, only beer tastes good and it’s hard

and you’d step over your own mother to get one.” –

Homer Simpson.

Every year the Cobra Gold exercise which is a joint American-Thai

military operation with other ASEAN countries sending along troops

as well—descends on Pattaya. What a sight it is with thousands of

American sailors coming ashore for R&R. I think the focus is definitely

not on Rest! They’ve been at sea for months. They have lots of cash by

local standards, wild dreams and raging hormones. The Pattaya Foreign

Police Volunteers assist the US Navy Shore patrol in keeping the

sailors and marines in line as they drift into the bars and netherworld

of Pattaya.

Walking Street is crawling with handsome, fit, young and clueless

American military personnel with wads of cash burning a hole in their

pocket. Sometimes a marine with too many beers can be made an offer

that is too good to refuse. That, of course, violates the Wisdom of Beer.

Never let the beer substitute for thinking through a plan. One bright

Marine accepts an offer too good to be true, $500 for taking a piss on the

expensive car pointed out by a beautiful Russian escort. Unfortunately

that car happens to be owned by the local Mafia chief’s son!

The story follows the members of a gang as they organize and

carry out a daring heist. There is a local Thai-Chinese mafia type and

a Russian arms dealer who have organized the heist of weapons from

a warehouse abandoned by another arm’s dealer who’s been sent to

America to face criminal charges. Young Khun Beer is about to carry out

that heist of war weapons at a Laem Chabang port warehouse partnered

with a Russian arms dealer with a love of carnage movie Kill Bill.

Christopher continually pokes fun at the different characteristics

of the main characters - the Russians from escort girl

To post or not to post…

It’s normal in Thai society for those of a

lower status to show respect to those higher

up the ladder. That can sometimes make it

tricky for reporters to ask the questions that

need to be asked. Channel 7 reporter Somjit

Navakruasunthorn thankfully suffers from no

such deference and normally wades in where

others fear to tread.

She used to give Abhisit a hard time,

and rightly so, but usually the Democrat

leader would stand his ground and give an

answer.

When she tried the same type of questions

on Prime Minister Yingluck though,

things soon turned nasty. Yingluck simply

walked off when Somjit asked her something

about how to get rich in just four years. OK,

it’s a sarcastic type of question but one that

Yingluck could have easily batted away.

The response from Yingluck supporters

was hostile and one email was created

with Somjit’s picture. The message, along

with Somjit’s image, was said to have been

circulated by Porntip Paksanont, chief of the

Petchaburi branch of the United Front for

Democracy against Dictatorship.

The email said: “This is the face of the

reporter who caused Prime Minister (Yingluck)

to walk away. She is a reporter with

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

Channel 7. Remember her face so if she is seen anywhere, please ‘take care’

of her”.

The phrase ‘take care of her’ has similar to connotations to hard man

Vinnie Jones asking you to ‘come outside for a little chat’.

Suitably upset, Somjit filed a complaint with the local police. After all,

we were all warned not to share or like controversial content on Facebook

the other week, so surely she had a case?

Seems not. The police decided there was no case to answer as Ms Porntip

did not write the email, she only passed it on to others.

Turns out that to ‘take care of’ someone also isn’t threatening at all. And

anyway, the police

couldn’t trace the

original writer of the

email.

IP addresses are awfully

hard to get hold of, as well

know. Just ask that Thai-American

guy who was jailed for two

years last week for passing

on an offensive email that he

hadn’t written.

little or nothing about Western

ways.

This is like hiring a 12year-old

the strings. Reform is unlikely, as those shadowy

figures would be out of a job and be

accountable for the starvation and poverty

that has plagued their country for the past

few years.

Of course, other countries will now

want to court North Korea for their own

reasons: the US and China will be at the front

offering all sorts of sweeteners to do as they

wish.

If the new chap is anything like his dad,

it will certainly be a tense time. Kim Jong-il

was the world’s only hereditary communist

ruler and was said to be behind huge human

rights abuses. While South Korea made

him out to be a vain, playboy figure with

Amy Winehouse-style bouffant hairstyle, the truth was even

odder. He had live lobsters air-lifted to his train on a daily

basis, which he then devoured with silver chopsticks. He was

known to like his drink, and was spotted downing 10 glasses

of wine during a 2000 summit with former South Korean

President Kim Dae-jung.

On the other hand, he had a god-like image in his homeland.

The official story says he was born in a log cabin, with a

double rainbow and glittering star heralding his birth.

Rumours never stopped coming though. A Japanese

magazine reckoned that he actually died in 2003 and body

doubles were playing his part. His love of movies and basketball

was legendary and he is said to have one of the private

collection of movies of anyone in the world.

Of course, those in North Korea have no idea about

any of this as their regime allows for no freedom of expression

or debate. We don’t even know how or when he died,

for instance. Change is definitely coming to North Korea, but

whether it will be for the better or worse is anyone’s guess.

Ladyboy hostesses ready to serve you

Ladyboy air hostesses have taken to the airs with a new

PC Air took officials on its maiden flight – no pun intended

– from Bangkok, all looked after by four ladyboy attendant.

The privately-owned airline aims to offer equal opportunities

for all, hence its PC name.

“Today, we are ready to embark on the new journey and

we would like to introduce our four transsexual angels,” PC Air

president Peter Can told The Nation.

The cabin crew was made up of 19 female and seven male flight

specialise in charter flights.

Although Thailand has plenty of third-sex people, they are often

discriminated again when it comes to jobs. So it’s good to see an

airline making something of a breakthrough.

John owned a very successful bar in Pattaya which he had designed

and built himself. His wife was a local lady

whose savvy in the day-to-day operation of the bar

was invaluable. With her as manager, it seemed the

perfect partnership. John provided all the capital

investment plus many friends who became regular

customers. These friends would bring their own

friends along and his clientele increased to numbers

which were the envy of other businesses in the area.

When John didn’t show up at his bar one

night, it was not a surprise because it was known

John had a drinking problem and it was only a matter

of time before it would take its toll on his health.

When he still hadn’t turned up after a week, his

friends became concerned. They tried calling him

but his mobile seemed to be always switched off.

The consensus was, if he was resting and recuperating,

he turned it off so as not to be disturbed. There

was no real panic until three weeks later when one

friend began calling his home number. Each time, the calls either rang

out or John’s wife answered to say he was sleeping.

John’s absence was having an effect on the bar. Many of his

friends would look in and, not seeing him sitting on his usual stool,

head off somewhere else. The popular 4-piece band, which played

nightly had quit and those customers who came to enjoy their music

had followed shortly after. The cashier quit, along with three other

popular and hardworking members of staff. In only a few short weeks,

the bar went from catering to a full house each night to entertaining

merely a handful of punters.

John and his wife lived about 20 kilometres out of town. When

two of his concerned mates paid him a visit, his wife greeted them at

the door saying he was sleeping and could not be disturbed. They

insisted upon seeing him. Stretched out on his bed with his eyes open,

they found him pale and incoherent. He did not recognize them and

appeared to be in a terrible state. It was obvious his malady was not

simply the result of alcoholism.

A few days later they headed off to the bar where John’s ex-band

was now resident. The lads in the band told them that yes, they had

quit, but they were forced to. After John took ill, his wife told them she

no longer required the keyboard player and their salary would be cut

by 25%. She cited the downturn in profits as the reason. To the band

members this was unacceptable, so they reluctantly quit.

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

Bitter Medicine

John’s ex-cashier was also working in that

bar and she explained she was also forced to quit

because John’s wife had accused her of stealing,

something which she vehemently denied. She also

suggested John’s wife was evil and was deliberately

setting out to destroy the bar. To those listening,

that did not really make a lot of sense. The bar provided

a good income for both John and his wife so

why would she want to stop the money from rolling

in? The cashier did not know but warned them to

be very careful about tangling with his wife.

Three friends went back to visit John two

days later. His wife reluctantly let them in and this

time they found John more responsive and coherent.

They told him about trying to call him many

times but his phone was switched off. When they

started calling on the landline, they were told he

was asleep. John said whenever he asked his wife

if anyone had called she said no. She told him his

friends did not really care about him and to forget them. He never

really believed her but was in no position to do anything about it.

Someone then noticed a small cup of brownish liquid on John’s bedside

table. John said it was his medicine made by priests from special

herbs. His wife told him to take it twice a day. As he lifted the cup to

his mouth, one friend snatched it from his hand and tipped the contents

into a nearby planter. He told John to stop taking it but not to

let his wife know. John seemed to understand. He confided that he

always seemed to feel worse immediately after downing the potion.

One month later, John was no longer bed-ridden and met up

with a mate at a restaurant in town. John looked bright and healthy,

ordering a soda water because he was no longer on the booze. He

said he had spent his last month of recovery untangling such a web

of intrigue it made Hollywood suspense thrillers seem tame. Everything

that happened had been part of a cunning scheme in which

his wife was chief puppeteer.

His wife had two friends who owned a bar of similar size but

nowhere near as popular as John’s. Their lease was about to expire

and the landowner informed them it would not be renewed because

their bar and the surrounding area had been earmarked as the site

of a new hotel. They needed new premises and John’s bar would be

perfect. Conspiring with John’s wife, they offered her a half share in

a new ‘super bar’ made by the merger of John’s place and their own,

if they could buy John’s at a cheap price. The trouble was that John

owned the bar through a registered company and his wife could not

sell it without his signature. Besides that, the fully operational and

Page 66 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

profitable bar with a long-term lease would be very expensive even

if John could be persuaded to sell. She knew John would give her

half the proceeds of the sale but that was a pittance compared with

the money generated from her silent partnership in the new management

team.

The first stage was to keep him away from the bar and his

friends. She knew as long as he was in the picture, the bar would

continue to run profitably. She switched off and hid his mobile

phone and easily fended off phone calls made to the house. She

began feeding him the brown concoction which, in small doses,

caused drowsiness with a narcotic effect but taken over a longer

period of time, would kill him. That was her two-pronged attack. If

he could be persuaded to sell the business to her friends at a ridiculously

cheap price, she would stop administering the ‘medicine’. If he

refused, his death could easily be explained as the result of chronic

alcoholism and the bar would pass into her hands. She felt she could

not lose.

The second part of her plan was to run the business into the

ground financially. When weekly takings kept declining, she could

explain to John that since he was no longer well the bar was losing

money. It would be best to sell up before they went broke. She

would talk him into accepting the best offer, which naturally would

come from her co-conspirators. To do it, she got rid of the cashier

who had been John’s friend for years and replaced her with her own

crony who would adjust the figures as directed. She forced an intolerable

situation upon the band knowing they would quit and sacked

the three most popular and efficient members of staff. Any staff

member who quit was not replaced. At one point, she was down to

three serving staff which, for a large bar, was totally inadequate.

Her plan unravelled once John stopped taking the potion. His

health improved daily but he did not let her know, pretending to be

still following her prescription. The potted plant beside his window

where he had been disposing of the liquid had withered and died.

John could not believe the lengths his wife would go to for

sheer greed. The final question was what he was going to do about

it. If they wanted his bar so badly that they would consider murder,

then they may try again and, next time, might be successful. He

decided it was not worth it. In any case, he had had enough and

wanted out of the bar business altogether. John said he was going

to give them what they wanted. He was going to sell them the bar

– but at his price, not theirs.

What about his wife? What action was he going to take now he

had evidence of her attempt to murder him? None. He was advised

that, should he make any trouble for her, she had enough money

and contacts to ensure he never testified. He did not want to spend

the rest of his life looking over his shoulder. He negotiated with his

bitter wife and she agreed to buy him out of his half of their beautiful

home. After the sale of the bar went through, he would give her half

the proceeds before heading back to the UK to retire.

Countrywide specialised in sub-prime mortgages, which

were often granted without proper checks on criteria. Countrywide

“steered” more than 10,000 minority borrowers into subprime

mortgages, while similar white borrowers received prime

Those sub-prime mortgage holders ended up paying more

Malaysia opens banking system

Malaysia will allow more foreign investment in the banking

sector to try and boost economic growth.

The government will be more flexible when it comes to

permitting foreigners to hold stakes in banks and will also issue

banking licences to foreign firms.

Malaysia’s central bank said the cap on foreign ownership

would depend on the financial profile of the investor.

Foreign ownership of commercial banks in Malaysia is

capped at 30% currently.

Malaysia is aiming to

become a fully developed

economy by 2020 and the

financial sector is expected

to play a key role in

helping it to achieve that.

The sector is expected

to grow at an annual

rate of 8% to 11% in the

current decade.

Authorities have

already granted licences

to some foreign banks,

including BNP Paribas and National Bank of Abu Dhabi, to operate

in Malaysia.

Analysts said that changes to the ownership rules will help

boost growth even further.

One of the fastest growing areas is Islamic finance. Overseas

investors are currently allowed to hold up to a 70% stake in

Islamic and investment banks.

The central bank plans to bring in new products and offer

new Islamic banking licences to help sustain the momentum.

That’s in sharp contrast to Thailand, where foreign banks are

virtually unknown.

Apple is fighting several legal battles over technology rights,

and had first claimed that HTC was ignoring 10 patents.

That means HTC was able to claim something of a victory as

it was only found guilty of breaking on patent.

HTC said the patent they broke related to a small user-interface

feature known as “data tapping”, which allowed users to

grab embedded information, such as a phone number. HTC will

completely remove it from all their phones and claimed it would

mean minimal disruption to their business in the US.

As the world’s fourth-largest smartphone maker, HTC uses

Google’s Android operating system on most of its smartphones,

though it has now launched a series of phones using Microsoft’s

Windows Phone 7 software.

It is alleged that Mr Gao shifted NZ$6.78m ($5.25m, 150

mistakenly put NZ$10m into it after he requested an overdraft.

His former girlfriend, Kara Hurring, 32, returned voluntarily

UK still in trouble

The UK economy grew faster than expected towards the

Growth for July to September was revised up to 0.6 per cent,

helped by a recovery in services and construction sector output.

But the second quarter was revised down from 0.1% growth to

show no expansion at all.

There were warnings that the 0.6 per cent growth rate was

too optimistic and that the overall health of the economy was still

very poor.

Third quarter figures were helped as service sector output

The Argument Arises - Is Tendulkar

better than Bradman

As Indian superstar Sachin Tendulkar (Pictured) made

his way Down Under for yet another Test series,

arguably his last in Australia, someone somewhere

decided it was worth attempting to revive a dead

horse by trying to claim the Indian champion might

now be a greater batsman than Don Bradman.

The reason -the hook- was that Tendulkar was on the verge of

scoring his 100th international century, a feat never before accomplished.

This is mainly because there was no such creature as One Day

Internationals when people like Bradman,

Walter Hammond, Len Hutton and Jack

Hobbs were in their prime.

Bradman himself was known to be

a huge fan of Tendulkar’s, stating publicly

that the Indian batsman played much like

himself. Tendulkar might arguably be the

closest incarnation of Don Bradman, but

by no stretch of the imagination could he

really be classed in the same way.

Statistically, Bradman is possibly

the most dominant sporting figure of

the twentieth century. In no other sport

has one person been so all-conquering

as Bradman. His Test batting average of

99.94 is 39.21 runs better than the next

nearest batsman of all time. That man is England’s opener Herbert

Sutcliffe whose average of 60.73 from 54 Tests (Bradman played 52) is

the second-best of any international player with more than 20 Tests to

his credit. The difference in averages equates to a massive 39 percent.

Thinking across other sports, heavyweight boxing champion

Rocky Marciano dominated his time in the square ring with an unbeaten

string of 49 victories. Yet many would claim Muhammad Ali

was greater. Ali was undefeated at his first 37 bouts before

being forced out of boxing for three years.

Bradman lost six years of his career due to the Second

World War, and did not play a Test match from 1938

until 1946, that is, from the age of 30 to 38. How many Test

matches did he miss in that time? Just how many centuries

would he have scored? The answer, of course, is completely

unknown. That he came back in 1946 and plundered 187, 234

and 79 in his first three innings is testament to his brilliance

and suggests he may well have finished his Test career with

many more than his-then record of

29 centuries.

By way of comparison, England

batsman Walter Hammond

(who finished his Test career with

22 centuries and an average of

58.45) also missed the Second

World War years, playing his last

match in 1939 and resuming

against India in England in 1946.

Five years older than Bradman, it

would be fairer to look at Hammond’s

record up to and including

1939. He made 6,883 runs at 61.45

to be the closest comparison with

Bradman; and there were those in

the 1930’s who attempted to make

the case that Hammond was indeed superior.

Bradman remains only one of four men to have scored

a century before lunch on the first day of a Test match. He

remains the only batsman to have scored more than 300 runs

in a single day. Tendulkar, despite his truckload of Test tons,

has never gone close to scoring 300 in an innings let alone a

day. His highest Test score is 248.

Page 74 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

The question is why was Bradman so good, that even

today he completely dominates the batting landscape? Was it

just freakish ability?

In a foreword to Bradman Revisited, a 2008 book written

by Tony Shillinglaw, the former England opener Geoff

Boycott made a note of Bradman’s qualities and wrote ‘In 40

years of playing, watching and commentating on cricket I

have seen a number of great batsmen who possessed many

of these qualities, yet all of them were only 50 to 60 per cent

as good as the Don. So was there something else? Or was he

just born special?’ Among those batsman is, of course, Sachin

Tendulkar.

Shillinglaw suggested Bradman developed a unique

‘rotary’ method of preparing for a stroke and it was this which

gave him a big mechanical advantage over other batsmen.

Former great Greg Chappell agreed Bradman had found a

way of lifting the bat and balancing himself in such a way as

to give him an edge.

Colin Cowdrey, the England opener and captain, once

wrote of Bradman: ‘it was his mind that powered his success’.

His mental toughness was noted by sports statistician

Charles Davis, who suggested Bradman was as vulnerable to

being dismissed as any other batsman until he had scored

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:

PLEASE - SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERS

around 15 runs. Once he was set then his chances of being dismissed

dropped to about one third of all other greats. Once Bradman

reached 50 and from then until he made 150 he completely dominates

the landscape. Davis suggested once Bradman got going he

dominated bowlers mentally.

Certainly, his record of 29 Test centuries and only 13 fifties bears

testimony to this. In two of his half centuries Bradman was not out

and therefore not able to go on to a hundred or more. So, of the 40

other occasions he passed 50, he converted just over 72 percent into

centuries.

Hammond, prior to 1939, made 22 hundreds and 22 fifties. Of

these, four of his half-tons were not out. Therefore, Hammond’s conversion

rate of fifties into hundreds or more stands at 55 percent.

Between the age of 20 (when Bradman’s career commenced)

and 55 Tests later, Tendulkar’s performances show 20 centuries and

18 fifties. Of the latter, only one was not out, so Tendulkar’s conversion

rate stood at 54 percent.

From statistical studies based on the bell curve, Charles Davis

claimed only one in 200,000 Test cricketers should be as good as

Bradman. If 50 new Test players were blooded each year it’s going to

take about 6,000 years before we ever see another one like him.

Suarez ridiculous race row

OK, so Luis Suarez isn’t the best player to use as a shining

example of how one should behave on a football field. But,

come on,

wasn’t the

row over

his supposedracial

abuse

of Man

Utd’s Patrice

Evra a

tad overblown?

In

the highlytouchy

corridors

of the

Football

Association, any whiff of racism makes those old boys (all white,

by the way) shudder. They worry that they’ll be accused of

ignoring the issue if they do nothing, so they huff and puff and

come out with all the felicitous platitudes.

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com

To recap, Suarez offended Evra during a Liverpool-Man Utd

match by apparently repeatedly using racist language. Evra is

the only one who heard this. Evra said in his report that he didn’t

think Suarez was a racist. Evra also once made up an over-the-top

complaint about a Chelsea groundsman and was banned for four

games as a result.

This isn’t an Evra witch-hunt either, though. The main problem

here was language. Suarez apparently used the word ‘negra’. You

may well think that after four years playing in Europe Suarez should

know that this was going to be inflammatory.

However, it should also be noted that in Uruguay, such references

to race are normal. Suarez, whose grandfather was black, is

from a country where racial references are banded about without

anybody taking offence.

Obdulio Varela, a World Cup winner with Uruguay, was known

as ‘El Negro Jefe’, or the black boss. In today’s squad there is Maxi

Pereria, known as ‘El Mono’, or ‘the monkey’ while Alvaro Fernandez

is called ‘El Flaco’, or ‘Mr Skinny’.

It is hard, if not impossible, for the suits at the FA to accept

that this is the norm in some societies. It may not be acceptable

in our Westernised eyes, but that’s really our problem isn’t it, not

theirs.

Which brings us to Thailand. We should be thankful that no

Thai footballers have ever got beyond Everton’s reserve squad,

otherwise there’d be cries of ‘blackie’ and ‘darkie’ every time there

was a corner kick.

Not that Thais are racist, either. They just have different attitudes

to skin colour. That attitude usually extends to Thais with

darker skin, but sometimes it crosses over to those from different

races, which is where things get slightly more complicated.

Suarez’s case put the FA in a difficult position. It would be a

brave FA to dismiss a charge of racism, in much the same way you

don’t get many innocent verdicts in lese majeste cases. But the FA’s

decision to ban him for eight games is excessive, and seems like

they simply want to make a point.

Keane to Put the Record Straight

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has reignited a war of

words with old boss Alex Ferguson.

Page 76 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012

Keane didn’t hold back as he claimed Fergie unceremoniously

dumped him when he was no longer of use.

He even claimed United threatened him with legal action after

a 2008 interview in which he hit out at the club’s handling of his exit

from Old Trafford.

Although he won seven Premier League titles while with Fergie,

Keane’s relationship with the red-nosed one ended after he left the

club in 2005.

Keane criticised United’s youthful team after they crashed out of

the Champions League at the group stages.

Fergie, not unreasonably, questioned Keane’s managerial record

which, so far, has been less than glorious.

In programme notes, Ferguson said his side were getting criticised

‘even from people we thought were perhaps on our side’.

The most recent clash came when Keane revealed his surprise

at Phil Jones saying he was ‘relaxed’ before the Euro defeat to Basel.

Keane said: “I’d be getting hold of some of those lads, saying,

‘You’d better buck up your ideas’.”

Sounding more and more bitter by the moment, Keane’s latest

complaint centres on how he was treated when his time was up.

After a row with assistant manager Carlos Queiroz, he was shown the

door in no uncertain manner.

Neville – the voice of wisdom

Unlikely as it may seem, and it does seem very unlikely, Gary

Neville has been something of a revelation this season.

No longer is he simply Beckham’s best mate or the full-back

whose fist-pumping victory salute to opposing Liverpool fans still

looks laughable. No, the former Manchester United defender is now

the star turn on Sky Sports.

Many other

ex-pros have tried

and failed at this

job. There was

Jamie Redknapp,

who sounded so

keen but then said

so little, or Robbie

Earle, who sounds

like he was told

5 minutes before

kick off which

game he was going

to.

All that is over though. Enter Gary Neville, the voice of

footballing reason. Neville is great because he seems to be

focused purely on football and explaining the game to the

masses, rather than using Sky Sports as a vehicle to remain in

the public eye now his playing days are over.

He no longer seems like the nerdy, weasel-like stub of a

player; he is now Neville the pundit, analyst and deliverer of

tasty anecdotes.

One of the true joys of listening to Neville is that he is

unashamedly biased. They must almost fear giving him a

Liverpool game to work on as he’ll be wearing the opposing

team’s colours while simultaneously kissing a photo of Fergie

that’s in his top pocket.

He has already managed to annoy Chelsea boss Andre

Villa-Boas by suggesting David Luiz has been playing like he is

being “controlled by a 10-year-old in the crowd on a PlayStation”.

A wonderful line, and we can only hope

there is more to come. In a world of slick

suits, sharp delivery and product placement,

it’s reassuring to know that there

is a place in the world of football commentary

for someone like Gary Neville.
