Dear Constant Reader.<br />

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

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

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

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

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

a woman 40 years younger than myself.<br />

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

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

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

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

English is not so important.<br />

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

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

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

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

How about fishing ? Any fishermen who can put pen to paper ?<br />

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pattaya Trader<br />

Steve was delighted when he learned that all<br />

the boys would be over to Pattaya again in<br />

April. As usual, his best mate Gary had called<br />

him on Saturday to tell him all the latest news<br />

from his home town in the UK. Since he’d<br />

moved to Thailand five years earlier, he’d become accustomed<br />

to the vastly different climate and culture of a country 6,000<br />

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

did miss the regular company of the group of friends that had<br />

all gone to school together and had remained close ever since.<br />

Their annual visit to Pattaya had become an event that none of<br />

them would miss - work, wives and girlfriends permitting. This<br />

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

The intervening years hadn’t changed Marty, the ex-school<br />

bully. He had evolved into a loud-mouthed, lairy, Billy no mates.<br />

As he lived in the same town and frequented the same pubs, it<br />

was difficult to avoid him. So when word got out that the lads<br />

had booked their holiday,<br />

Marty decided to tag<br />

along and a week later he<br />

booked the same flight.<br />

He was so thick-skinned<br />

as to be oblivious to<br />

the derogatory remarks<br />

made in the pub that his<br />

action had prompted.<br />

Steve knew that it was<br />

going to be hard work<br />

trying to cope with Marty<br />

for a fortnight.<br />

When the lads<br />

arrived in Pattaya, it<br />

emerged that Marty,<br />

despite not being the<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

W<br />

The Lesson<br />

sharpest knife in the drawer, had even managed to book himself<br />

into the same Soi 7 hotel as the others. After a few days it<br />

became clear that Marty was intent on business as usual, despite<br />

the advice from the others that Thailand was not a place that<br />

tolerated loutish behaviour. He’d already had a few fights with<br />

farangs of various nationalities and insulted several bar girls who<br />

had, very sensibly, rejected his amorous overtures. The others<br />

had helped him out and dragged him away before he got himself<br />

in serious trouble with the local constabulary. The time seemed<br />

right for him to be taught a lesson.<br />

On Saturday night, after watching the football in Soi 7, they<br />

decided on a visit to Walking Street. Just before they entered the<br />

pedestrianised area, Marty’s attention was drawn to the Muay<br />

Thai boxing that was going on in the street side beer-bar complex.<br />

They all stopped for a minute or two while Marty let it be<br />

known to anyone in earshot that it wasn’t “proper” boxing and<br />

the Thai fighters wouln’t last two minutes against a seasoned exponent<br />

of the Queensbury<br />

rules such as him. One or<br />

two of the lads exchanged<br />

knowing glances. Unlike<br />

Marty, they’d been there<br />

a few times before and<br />

seen many a farang who<br />

fancied their chances made<br />

to appear a complete prat.<br />

Predictably Marty took<br />

little persuading to have<br />

a go when the MC asked<br />

for a farang volunteer to<br />

go a couple of rounds<br />

with Chokchai, the reigning<br />

champion. Marty was<br />

sure it was a tourist show<br />

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

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

show him up too much.<br />

As he climbed up into the ring, Steve noticed a couple of his<br />

mates talking quietly to Chokchai’s trainer and a number of hundred<br />

Baht notes changing hands. For the first minute or so Marty<br />

was content to show off his pugilistic skills and finely honed torso<br />

to the admiring bar girls who responded by calling him all the<br />

insulting Thai names under the sun. He smiled back in blessed<br />

ignorance. The first round ended with hardly a punch or kick<br />

being landed. Due mostly to Marty’s ineptitude and Chokchai’s<br />

accomplished ringcraft. Steve glanced over to Chokchai’s corner<br />

and saw the trainer seemingly giving some instructions. These<br />

instructions immediately became evident when the contest resumed.<br />

In simple terms, Marty was being given a discrete hiding.<br />

To the casual observer Chokchai was landing more punches and<br />

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

knew otherwise. Chokchai’s skill was enabling him to appear to<br />

be lightly clipping Marty at will, but those blows were meant to<br />

hurt - and did. As the round progressed, Steve realised what was<br />

going on. Two of the others had slipped the trainer a few Baht so<br />

that his boxer could give Marty a hiding. As the bout was nearing<br />

it’s end, Steve thought that Marty might have learned someing<br />

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

in his own ability forced him into one final onslaught. The only<br />

effect of which was to force Chokchai to up the ante and deal a<br />

blow that would stop the contest. He easily evaded Marty’s wild<br />

right hook and simultaneously thumped Marty on the back of<br />

the head and kicked his legs from under him. Steve was now<br />

concerned. Chokchai seemed to have lost the plot and was going<br />

to deal with Marty as if there was a ten thousand Baht purse at<br />

stake, rather than a few hundred. Without further ado Steve leapt<br />

up into the ring and grabbed Chokchai around the shoulders<br />

shouting “por, por”, hoping that Chokchai would realise he’d done<br />

enough damage.<br />

Back outside Steve put Marty in a waiting taxi and told the<br />

driver to take him to Pattaya Memorial hospital. He wasn’t badly<br />

hurt, only a few cuts and bruises and a sorely damaged ego. His<br />

knee was probably the thing that would need treatment, as he’d<br />

fallen awkwardly in the final melee and could have damaged a<br />

ligament or something similar. Leaving Marty to sort himself out<br />

and reflect on the error of his actions, the rest of the lads headed<br />

into Walking street in search of less frenetic entertainment.<br />

It was around five hours later that Steve found himself<br />

walking along the soi at the back of the hospital that led to his<br />

apartment. He half-hesitated and wondered if he should go in<br />

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

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

- hopefully with a better attitude. Steve turned the final<br />

corner on his journey home when he heard a voice behind him.<br />

“Money farang!”. Steve turned slowly to face a Thai man weilding<br />

a long bladed knife and a look that showed that he was probably<br />

prepared to use it.<br />

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

him the money, turn and run or fight? He only had about six<br />

hundred Baht on him as it had been a good night out. He was on<br />

the corner of a soi that led nowhere and trying the ‘Braveheart’<br />

approach with a man holding a large knife and a bad attitude<br />

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

a possible life or death decision, the necessity for it was obviated.<br />

In the darkness Steve didn’t see what happened. All he heard<br />

was a whoosh and a crack, followed by a thud. Moving out into<br />

the light of a street lamp, Steve saw Marty holding the thin end<br />

of an old-fashioned wooden crutch and a crumpled heap of Thai<br />

would-be mugger on the pavement. “Better get out of here a<br />

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

himself “thank God for brute force and ignorance”. “ Let’s go and<br />

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

that bloody hospital for ages and it cost me a fortune. I like Pattaya<br />

- I think I might pack up work and move over here”.<br />

While scientists are<br />

trying to discover if<br />

the universe is made<br />

of matter or anti-matter<br />

the rest of us are<br />

wondering ‘What the hell does it matter?’<br />

with all the present devastation in Thailand<br />

of late. The only consolation is that the scenario<br />

of the world being a washout won’t<br />

last, but, at the same time, I wonder what<br />

happened to the Creator’s promise to Noah<br />

(after the deluge) that he’d send a rainbow<br />

as a promise that the earth would never be<br />

flooded again. I suppose that as only about<br />

half of the entire country was affected, and they not being ‘His Chosen<br />

People’, it didn’t count as ‘wholesale’ in his ledger!<br />

The only floods I’ve experienced have been my childhood reminiscences<br />

that have been flooding back (of the late 50’s Sussex inundation<br />

when my brothers and I sailed around the rooftops of hundreds of<br />

submerged caravans on a makeshift raft of railway sleepers), making me<br />

realize that nostalgia is a thing of the past and not appropriate for a more<br />

fortunate falang to be presently wallowing in. Although they say swimming<br />

is good for the figure I have reservations about ending up with<br />

my body resembling that of an old trout. But why should I<br />

go along with the American theory that only the sleek will<br />

inherit the earth?<br />

I certainly don’t go along with their other] philosophies<br />

for, if you remember, when the Pilgrims ! landed in<br />

America there were only Indians there: they had no taxes,<br />

no national debt, no conscription, no prisons, no brutal<br />

law enforcers or national guard, and the women did all of<br />

the work - and the floundering Pilgrim Fathers thought they<br />

would improve on that system!<br />

If only the native Indians had had a more enlightened immigration<br />

policy the land might have still belonged to them.<br />

When asked what they called their country before it was<br />

dubbed ‘America’ in honour of Amerigo Vespucci ; they replied<br />

“Ours”. Perhaps, instead of the Pilgrim Fathers landing on<br />

Plymouth Rock, it would have been better if the Plymouth Rock<br />

had landed on those Pilgrim Fathers. But there is no point in worrying<br />

about life for if you worry you die, and even if you don’t worry<br />

you die j eventually anyway - so why worry?<br />

All I ever exercise now is an occasional bit of discretion even though<br />

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

those aerobic freaks not intelligent enough to enjoy CRAPattaya TV. When<br />

I did take up regular exercise a while ago on the understanding that it<br />

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

had developed the energy levels of someone twice my age capable only<br />

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

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

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

rats even when they do win.<br />

My friends seem to be of the opinion the only thing that will improve<br />

my appearance is by keeping my distance. But oh, insomnia! Lying awake<br />

at nights, listening to time ticking silently away; wondering what is a<br />

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

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

other options; why is ‘being too clever by half an insult; does<br />

‘virtual reality’ mean real or unreal, and those concepts of<br />

infinity and eternity 1 mean where will it all end? However,<br />

I do aerobic sleeping; that is I toss and turn all night when<br />

suffering from my insomnia. My ying said “My bhen arry.<br />

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

draught (a big bottle of Bull’s Blood Vino Sanguino) and<br />

got double rest as 1 dreamt I was sleeping, and on waking, I<br />

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

not telling you!”<br />

One thing about being a fat OAP is that ‘multitasking’<br />

is being able to laugh, cough, sneeze, fart and pee all at<br />

the same time, the only consolation being is that old age is<br />

something you will outgrow - eventually! And since old<br />

age is only a question of mind over matter what does it<br />

matter if you don’t mind - because if you don’t mind it<br />

won’t matter! Mind you, when your wrinkles turn into<br />

body-pleats it’s no longer just puppy-fat and your puppylove<br />

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

ask me what colour. Groan! I know, I know, the standard<br />

of my correspondence is nothing to write home about<br />

but still the penis mightier than the sword (even though<br />

it’s a lot more difficult to behead somebody with one). Ah<br />

well, since I can’t please all of the people all of the time I<br />

shall just have to please myself thereby at least making<br />

one person happy for I can’t have it both ways as I’m not<br />

a khatoey lady-boy.<br />

A gem or two among the sloths: The New Star go go is the first<br />

den on the left-hand side in Soi Diamond if you are coming in off<br />

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

a couple of usually well-endowed and passably attractive dancing<br />

damsels stood behind the curtain at the entrance and ever ready to<br />

display their primary assets to passers-by usually means the place<br />

gathers a reasonable crowd of punters most nights.<br />

A fairly short and narrow den, it only<br />

takes seven or eight girls and three<br />

or four bums on seats to make it<br />

look busy. The stage has three to<br />

five girls shuffling about while two<br />

damsels soap each other towards<br />

the centre. The preferred discounted<br />

thirst quencher is draft amber while<br />

lady drinks are a fair 110 baht (for a<br />

proper glass).<br />

Of the 12 or so girls I saw on a recent<br />

visit, two or three were worth a second<br />

look while about half were pot<br />

boilers or potential ‘before’ adverts<br />

for Weight Watchers. There is a room<br />

upstairs, which can be rented for 350<br />

baht for a short period of time (one<br />

hour), while the bar fine is 600 baht.<br />

The damsel of your desire wants you<br />

to part with 1,500 baht for an hour of<br />

her precious time. Doing the math,<br />

better value for the nocturnal emission<br />

baht can be found elsewhere,<br />

but the bar is usually worth at least<br />

a look.<br />

A little piece of Heaven in Pattaya:<br />

The Heaven Above go-go (Soi<br />

Diamond) is one of those dens of the<br />

chrome pole people seem to either<br />

love or hate. My personal attitude<br />

towards it is one of ambivalence: can’t<br />

stand the aural assault emanating from<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

Proud of her hair in Diamond go go<br />

behind the DJ’s booth, but appreciate the wide and varied looks of<br />

the dancing damsels, albeit that the majority are members of the<br />

hard-core division of wallet emptiers.<br />

I was out with a mate who was initially reluctant to make the trek<br />

up the stairs into Heaven Above. He said his previous experiences<br />

in the den had been less than exciting and he wasn’t keen on the<br />

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

fluid is only 50 baht until 9:30pm.<br />

A smart move the management<br />

have picked up from the Happy/<br />

Peppermint/Beach Club collective<br />

is to have someone, in this case<br />

a couple of the more attractive<br />

dancers, walk around with a sign<br />

indicating happy hour would be<br />

over in five minutes.<br />

As we sat surveying the six dancers<br />

on the main stage and the three or<br />

four who were shuffling about on a<br />

few scattered podiums, my friend<br />

decided this visit to Heaven Above<br />

was far better than his previous<br />

ventures into the den. A quick head<br />

count gave us around 25 dancers<br />

all up as well as some of the best<br />

looking service girls and hostesses<br />

of any place in Fun Town.<br />

If you’re looking for the kind of<br />

hands-on and go the grope kind<br />

of ogling den of the Baby Dolls/<br />

Windmill Club type experience<br />

then you’re in the wrong place. If<br />

you’re searching for Orville and<br />

Wilbur’s sister, Miss Wright, then<br />

once again you’re probably barking<br />

up the wrong chrome pole. If,<br />

instead, you want to find the kind of<br />

girl who can strip paint off walls with<br />

her tongue and turn your love bone to jelly,<br />

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

then Heaven Above is well worth the stair climb.<br />

Pattaya go-go dancers: Madame Tussaud’s come<br />

to life, almost: When the girls who work in the go-go<br />

bars are asked what they do, they almost invariably say<br />

they are ‘dancers’. As most observers of the go-go scene<br />

would no doubt concur, in many places it is hard to tell<br />

whether they are ‘dancers’ or merely auditioning for<br />

future roles as dummies in a wax museum.<br />

One partner in the long defunct Spicy Girls go-go<br />

(which started life in Pattayaland Soi 1, before that lane<br />

became overly gender-confused) was once reported to<br />

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

they move more than the girls!”<br />

In years gone by the place where the best chrome pole<br />

gyraters could be seen was Happy go-go (Walking<br />

Street). For some years they had easily the best line-up of<br />

girls who would cavort about the centre stage in various<br />

stages of undress while shaking everything. Rumour<br />

suggested much of this adult Attention Deficit Disorder<br />

(ADD) was due to the liberal ingestion of medicinal<br />

compounds not usually available over the counter in<br />

a pharmacy.<br />

Nowadays it’s hard to think of a single den which can lay<br />

claim to having a crew of genuinely energetic or frenetic<br />

exponents of the art of molesting a chrome pole.<br />

When Diamond go-go (Soi Diamond) used to hold<br />

regular monthly dance contests, especially in the early<br />

days when other go-go’s would be invited to compete,<br />

the quality of the dancers and the dancing was first rate,<br />

especially towards the final rounds.<br />

That said, I doubt most punters wander into a gogo<br />

in search of a partner to take to the World Tango<br />

Championships. Their main interest, after all, is what<br />

kind of a performance can be expected in the horizontal<br />

mattress dancing stakes.<br />

A Saunter down Soi LK Metro<br />

Tonights bar crawl takes us along Lk Metro, a<br />

soi which may not be on the radar of anyone<br />

visiting Pattaya for the first time.<br />

Gaining entry to the soi from either Soi Diane or Soi<br />

Buakaow, Soi Lk Metro has seen many new venues open<br />

in the last year or so. Originally developed by the Leng Kee<br />

family it now boasts half a dozen or so gogo bars, a large<br />

selection of reasonably priced guest houses, plus numerous<br />

places to eat and drink.<br />

Situated where it is, this soi doesn’t attract the Walking<br />

Street crowds of Russian, Indian and Arab tourists. Instead Lk<br />

Metro caters for the local expat community, and people on<br />

holiday who stay in and around the vicinity.<br />

Entering Lk Metro from Soi Diane, I decide to start the<br />

evenings drinking at Champagne Agogo. This well established<br />

venue was the sois original gogo bar and I was keen to<br />

see how it was holding up against the new kids on the block.<br />

On entering I was pleased to see a reasonable amount<br />

of customers, which isn’t bad going for this early start of 7<br />

pm. I was also delighted to see that Champagnes happy hour<br />

prices were still intact, offering beer at just 65 Baht a bottle<br />

from 2pm through to 9pm. Also still in place is the free pizza<br />

nights on a Monday and Thursday.<br />

Another plus point is that you can drink in here without<br />

the constant hassle to buy lady drinks. Mind you, looking at<br />

some of the darlings working in here, they would be welcome<br />

to hassle me for as long as the see fit.<br />

I am also happy to report that Champagne has lost none<br />

of its fizz and is still a strong contender for the best gogo bar<br />

on Lk Metro.<br />

My next drink takes me along to The Office Agogo,<br />

which is one of the newer venues on the soi.<br />

This office is unlike any other i have visited in my carrer.<br />

If the work place was indeed like this, i for one would be<br />

more than willing to put in a few more extra hours. Here the<br />

theme is the fantasy world of the sexy secretary. The girls<br />

certainly look the part, dressed in high heels, stockings and<br />

suspenders. Some even don reading glasses to complete the<br />

look.<br />

Office Agogo has a central stage upon which 4 or 5 of<br />

the girls dance, complementing this we have a small jacuzzi<br />

which unfortunately wasn’t in use.<br />

Prices are similar to its competitors with draft and<br />

bottled beer costing 65 Baht between 7pm and 9pm. Again<br />

the girls are non- pushy allowing for a pleasant drinking environment.<br />

Next up is the nautical themed Submarine Agogo,<br />

another relatively new club in the area. Entering by crossing<br />

a gangplank, this gogo bar is as the name would suggest<br />

decked out as a submarine.<br />

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

I honestly don’t recall ever visiting a smaller or more narrow<br />

gogo bar, while here in Pattaya. In fact it is so narrow it<br />

doesn’t have the space for a stage, instead the girls dance on<br />

low level tables which sit central to the wall hugging seats.<br />

Unbebelievably they did find space for a jacuzzi, but again it<br />

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

and true to form comes in a small narrow glass.<br />

Submarine Agogo is definitely worth a curious look. It<br />

has a couple of decent looking girls, and if i was ever unfortunate<br />

enough to suffer from claustrophobia, i could think of<br />

worse places for it to happen than a Pattaya gogo bar.<br />

My last drink of the evening takes me to Club Blu,<br />

which sits on the Soi Buakaow end of the soi.<br />

Club Blu has been open for around four years, but still<br />

has a fairly modern look and feel about it. Inside with its<br />

chrome and glass it wouldn’t look out of place in my home<br />

city in the Uk. What makes this stand apart from anything<br />

back at home is the coyote dancers. These dancing girls strut<br />

their stuff along the windows of Lk Metro, making pleasant<br />

viewing for anyone passing by. For this reason there is obviously<br />

no nudity here, and it may not appeal to the more<br />

hands on type of customer.<br />

Drinks come in at a reasonable 75Baht for a bottle of<br />

Leo or Tiger, with draft beer costing just 50 Baht. Along with<br />

these prices and some decent eye candy, i could think of<br />

worse places to end my nights drinking.<br />

Although sharing some similar types of venues, i think<br />

it would be unwise to believe the hype suggesting this soi to<br />

be a mini Walking Street. This is a perfectly fine soi in its own<br />

right, and should be judged accordingly.<br />

I firmly believe Lk Metro has enough attractions to<br />

satisfy the first time visitor, while also keping the local expats<br />

happy with affordable drink prices. If these two factors<br />

A pair of ‘lovelies’ photographed at Club Blu<br />

remain in place then Lk Metro should have a bright future<br />

ahead.<br />

As the high season jet-ski scamming season<br />

is now in full swing, I was contacted by two<br />

long-time Pattaya jet-ski operators who were<br />

keen to put their side of the story, suggesting<br />

they are just a misunderstood minority simply<br />

trying to earn a dishonest living.<br />

The two men are brothers, Turdsuk, 28, and Turdsak, 26.<br />

They come originally from Amphur<br />

Anywhere in Mukdahan province<br />

and asked me to refer to them<br />

simply as Big Turd and Little Turd.<br />

“For so many years we were<br />

ignored by the local and international<br />

press, “ complained Big<br />

Turd. “It was all ‘Phuket this’, and<br />

‘Phuket that’. The jet-ski operators<br />

of Phuket got all the press while<br />

we in Pattaya hardly ever rated<br />

a mention. It was so frustrating because<br />

we are as good as anyone at<br />

extracting money with menaces.”<br />

Big Turd emphasized his point<br />

by opening and closing his fists<br />

and dribbling out the side of his<br />

mouth.<br />

The pair claimed they combined<br />

with other jet-ski operators<br />

and became determined to ramp<br />

up their collective profile.<br />

Little Turd chimed in, “It was<br />

an affront to our manhood. How<br />

could we continue to allow Phuket<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

Pattaya Jet Ski Scammers<br />

say they are Misunderstood<br />

jet-ski operators to steal all the best headlines? We were becoming<br />

a laughing stock.” Liitle Turd emphasized his point by<br />

reaching above his head and violently spinning the helicopter<br />

blades on the top of his Mickey Mao baseball cap.<br />

The pair stated they, and their compatriots, had ramped<br />

up their threats of physical violence to tourists, including<br />

pulling knives and donning knuckle dusters. These actions, as<br />

well as just “looking tough” had completely changed the way<br />

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

Pattaya’s jet-ski operators are now viewed.<br />

“We made the front pages of most of the local newspapers.<br />

We had the British Foreign Office add Pattaya to Phuket<br />

as a place to be wary of hiring jet-skis. We had a national<br />

television channel do a report on Pattaya jet skis and City<br />

Hall spent a few days making a lot of noise about making<br />

sure we were licensed and getting rid of the rogues,” stated<br />

Big Turd.<br />

“You just can’t buy publicity like that,” exclaimed Little<br />

Turd. “Sure we lost a lot of business from the English-language<br />

speakers, the British and Americans, but we keep a<br />

close eye on what the TAT [Tourism Authority of Thailand]<br />

is doing and we knew they were getting Indians to come to<br />

Pattaya in bigger numbers. So, we target them, and the East<br />

Europeans. And we know everyone just hates the Indians<br />

and the Russians, so no one cares what happens to them.”<br />

The pair claim they now not only have the respect of<br />

their cousins in Phuket, they have their envy.<br />

“We are the number one scam artists in the jet-ski<br />

game,” said Big Turd, sticking his chest out and beaming like<br />

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:<br />


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

plastered all over the Internet. I’ve been called a lot of things<br />

in my life, but when foreigners think they’re being insulting<br />

by claiming I’m a ‘scumbag’ or an ‘asshole’ it means nothing.<br />

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

dared call me a monitor lizard then I would hunt them down<br />

and be really nasty.”<br />

When asked why they tried to extract such hefty sums<br />

for what is usually only a small strip of rubber that allegedly<br />

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

of our expenses. Just to set up on a part of the beach costs a<br />

fortune in back-handers. Then we have to pay a percentage of<br />

whatever we get as a kind of local government tax. And have<br />

you seen how much 24 bottles of Singha costs these days?<br />

Outrageous. Those breweries are worse than us.”<br />

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

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

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

discount on our normal rates, because we won’t involve our<br />

uniformed friends, OK?”<br />

I politely declined.<br />

Restaurant Reviews<br />

Aloha Diner and Bar. 27 hungry diners in the Frugal Freddy<br />

club invaded Aloha on this evening at our usual 6pm meeting<br />

time, we were greeted by Anusorn who is both the owner, supervising<br />

creative chef and mix-ologist for the large variety of<br />

Polynesian drinks for 1, 2, or 4 people in a variety of glasses and<br />

bowls decorated with fruit and flowers and as many straws as<br />

you want. These drinks not only quenched our thirst but were<br />

very easy on our wallet as Anusorn let us know that he has a<br />

European mind set because he started out first owning a similar<br />

restaurant in Germany before coming back to Thailand 12 years<br />

ago to start Aloha. If the economy is slow unlike many Thai’s<br />

his secret to success is to offer better value for the money and<br />

it is totally safe to say we all walked out happy with this way of<br />

promoting business. I had confirmation from 14 members to<br />

save a seat for them at the main table at 6pm and not only did<br />

all 14 show up on time but 13 more came. The restaurant easily<br />

seats 65 people. No problem finding tables close to the main<br />

table. Decorated in a Polynesian theme with a small stage for<br />

nightly entertainment, it is a very cordial atmosphere. Located<br />

on 2 nd Road, park across the street at the Royal Garden Shopping<br />

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

and avoid any parking problems.<br />

We chose to visit this particular evening because Anusorn now<br />

has a daily special set menu (B250) that is featured outside on<br />

the “Weekly set menu board” It changes every day of the week<br />

but remains the same for a calendar month. A number of us ate<br />

there earlier in the month and had the BBQ Brochette that has<br />

a nice size Filet of beef, pork, chicken, sausage and bacon. All<br />

pieces were cooked perfectly and included steamed vegetable<br />

and your choice of potatoes (baked, fried or mashed).<br />

We all noticed coming up on Wednesday was a rock lobster<br />

thermidor special with 2 small lobsters, choice of potatoes and<br />

steamed vegetables. There is nowhere else in Pattaya where you<br />

can get a lobster dinner for B250 and 2 for 1 tropical cocktails,<br />

priced from only B110. I spread the word through the Frugal<br />

Freddy email grapevine and the response was immediate. I notified<br />

Anusorn to have enough lobster for 20 of us and staff to take<br />

good care of us and he<br />

did. He did not run out of<br />

Lobster nor out of alcohol<br />

so it was a very successful<br />

evening.<br />

Rita and I and the Frugal<br />

Freddy group also dined<br />

recently at Goose’s Fish<br />

of Frugal Freddy)<br />

restaurant on 2 nd road<br />

between Soi 7 & 8. They<br />

can seat over 30 people<br />

inside and another dozen<br />

outside. It is nicely decorated<br />

with waitresses<br />

who do understand English.<br />

comes deep fried in a light batter<br />

and is of various weights. All meals<br />

include your choice of potatoes<br />

and a salad. Rita choice the hand<br />

cut fries where I chose the mashed,<br />

plus a salad and a generous portion<br />

of tartar sauce. In addition they have<br />

a Gammon dinner (B195), liver and<br />

bacon (B245) and others too numerous<br />

to mention like Chicken Burger<br />

& Hamburger (B195) and couple<br />

of salads for the vegetarians in the<br />

group.<br />

We started with the soups Tomato<br />

and New England Clam Chowder,<br />

both very good, then appetizers. I<br />

had the Prawn cocktail (B145) which<br />

was really a prawn salad with lettuce,<br />

tomato, green onions, olives<br />

in hundred Island dressing. The 8<br />

shrimp were plump, fresh and delicious.<br />

Rita choice the Chicken dippers,<br />

a large plateful of moist strips<br />

of chicken breast, battered and served with a dipping sauce,<br />

don’t know what it was but it was a big bowl and empty when<br />

we finished.<br />

For drinks Rita had her usual Coke (B40) and I had a small caraf<br />

of red wine (B145) and they do have a full bar of beer and liquor<br />

at reasonable prices. After our soups and appetizers and main<br />

course we were too stuffed to have dessert but were tempted to<br />

try the fresh strawberries and banana sundae (B120) but since<br />

Rita was too full to eat her small portion of Pacific Dory we passed<br />

on dessert and I instead had the Irish Coffee (B120) made with<br />

Jameson’s and a head of cream like a good glass of Guinness. A<br />

great way to finish off an excellent meal.<br />

The Hunter becomes<br />

the Hunted<br />

Kindly submitted by BS.<br />

It was a new day, empty, innocent and as yet unsullied,<br />

maybe a good day, maybe a bad day, maybe<br />

the last day, but a big day for sure, because I was<br />

about to meet my wife’s family for the first time.<br />

But first, we had to get there. Her village was way<br />

up in the remote highlands of Chang Mai. I was lucky; Rung<br />

was a good girl, a teller from my bank whom, I somehow<br />

managed to sweep off her feet. She was a petite woman<br />

with plenty of good looks, intelligence and tenacity. I was<br />

looking forward to today’s trip. After hearing so much, I was<br />

anxious to see her home.<br />

During the flight north her small frame seemed unusually<br />

tense. She sat next to me wringing her hands as if she<br />

were Macbeth himself. I simply chalked it up to this being<br />

her first airplane flight. But even after we landed there was<br />

a deep sense of unease in her usually cheerful demeanor.<br />

When I asked, there was a moment of debate in her face<br />

like some sort of long range strategy session was taking<br />

place in her mind before she smiled thinly and claimed<br />

everything was fine. While<br />

we waited for the taxi she’d<br />

arranged, Rung just picked<br />

at her food. She was clearly<br />

troubled. I’d never seen her<br />

like this before and began<br />

to suspect that something<br />

was amiss.<br />

When I saw Rung’s<br />

handpicked taxi driver, my<br />

mental watchtower started<br />

jangling, because I’d seen<br />

his ilk a thousand times. He<br />

had the soulless dead eyes<br />

of a career criminal. When<br />

we approached, the momentary<br />

curl of his lips that<br />

passed for a smile emanated<br />

no friendliness and his cold<br />

calculating eyes seemed to<br />

be sizing me up for a coffin.<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

Rung however, introduced him as her cousin which I knew<br />

was a lie. Now I was really getting worried.<br />

After I paid the guy for our six hour ride into the mountains,<br />

his flat lifeless eyes lit up like three sevens on a Vegas<br />

slot machine when he saw the cash in my wallet. I watched<br />

carefully while he put our bags in the trunk. He was a cross<br />

between Frankenstein and Herman Munster --- strong and<br />

stupid. His knotted forearms were covered in bad jailhouse<br />

ink and his body language was nothing but menacing. I<br />

had serious doubts about traveling alone with this highland<br />

hooligan up into the desolate hills of northern Thailand<br />

where anything could happen. Rung unconvincingly, assured<br />

me it would be alright but my instincts told me otherwise.<br />

So far, other than the sheets of rain that were falling,<br />

the lousy pot-holed mountain road and our driver’s<br />

less than expert motoring skills, the first four hours had<br />

been uneventful, except Rung hadn’t spoken two words. I<br />

couldn’t help but think<br />

things weren’t what they<br />

seemed. Did Rung devise<br />

some sort of scheme to<br />

get rid of me? After all,<br />

we had just paid cash<br />

for a home in her name<br />

and I only recently made<br />

Rung the sole beneficiary<br />

of both my will and life<br />

insurance policy. Surely I<br />

was just being paranoid.<br />

Or was I? No, my imagination<br />

was just running wild.<br />

But what about Rung’s<br />

choice of driver and her<br />

unusual behavior today,<br />

could she really be capable<br />

of such a thing?<br />

At the tiny hamlet<br />

where we stopped for<br />

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

petrol, my suspicions got the best of me. I dragged Rung<br />

behind the restrooms and demanded to know what was<br />

going on. She could barely look me in the eye and when she<br />

did she was practically in tears. Finally, while biting her lip,<br />

she stammered, “Tilac me sorry. Driber, him not cousin me.<br />

Him mafia. Papa me stupid, him drunk. Him happy I marry<br />

hubsban hab big money. Papa no hab to worry me poor<br />

when old an him speak to uncle if you die, money come me.<br />

Anoder man listen papa an tell ‘Mafia Man’. Mafia Man kidnap<br />

real cousin me baby. Him speak baby die unless I bring<br />

hubsban me here so him can kill. After I gib money you him,<br />

him gib baby back. Tilac please help. Do what Mafia Man<br />

say, okay? Not worry, papa, uncle, broder and cousin me<br />

make idea. You not die --- sure.”<br />

Suddenly, the idyllic picture that I imagined, of me<br />

fishing with Rung’s relations on a quiet river near her village<br />

was destroyed by what I’d heard and was replaced by the<br />

unsettling image of this backwater behemoth, who’s brain<br />

was likely lodged somewhere deep in the lightless tunnel<br />

of his rectum, who was just waiting to wedge a monkey-wrench<br />

between the cogs of my life --- stopping them<br />

permanently!!! But before I could ask Rung about their ‘idea’,<br />

Mafia Man motioned it was time to go. Terrific I thought,<br />

now my life was in the hands of Rung’s family.<br />

As we drove higher into the hills, the storm clouds<br />

darkened, the rain fell harder, the rainforest loomed ominously<br />

overhead, Rung sat silently, I contemplated dying,<br />

the vehicle skidded to a halt and Mafia Man turned with a<br />

malevolent grin on his ugly face and hissed, “Get out.”<br />

In the pouring rain, I took a few irresolute steps across<br />

the incredibly long mud-puddle that passed for a road,<br />

towards the dripping jungle, while Mafia Man produced<br />

a bottle partially filled with some syrupy concoction with<br />

chunks of crud floating in it. The greenish-brown liquid<br />

appeared to be the bodily fluids from a very sick and very<br />

old buffalo, but it was probably some tribal shaman’s local<br />

poison. He thrust the half-empty container towards me and<br />

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

Rung smiled weakly, nodded encouragement and gave me<br />

a half-hearted thumbs-up. The best I could do under the circumstances<br />

was mutter, “Yeah, well I want to win the lottery<br />

and be ten years younger but I think we’re both going to be<br />

disappointed.” He backhanded me and screamed, “Drink or<br />

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

but I didn’t, so I cursed this greedy Thai bastard instead,<br />

crossed my fingers and drank his highland-hootch. Within<br />

seconds I folded like a cheap rental chair at a backyard wedding.<br />

I’m not sure how long I was under the arresting spell<br />

of his rancid-rotgut but when I came to, my stomach felt<br />

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:<br />


like it was twisted in a vise, my throat burned, my head was<br />

pounding dangerously and I couldn’t move a muscle. As I<br />

lay frozen, helplessly watching the heavy raindrops splash<br />

into the mud, I began to feel the rest of my senses slowly<br />

coming to life like a computer booting up programs. Then<br />

I noticed Rung in tears, handing over my will, life insurance<br />

policy and the deed to our home to this deranged dirt-bag.<br />

Precisely at that moment, four Thai policemen appeared<br />

from nowhere with guns drawn. As Mafia Man<br />

comprehended this new development, a look of complete<br />

bewilderment played across his face like a dog whose master<br />

moved a ball from one hand to another too quickly. Then<br />

panic kicked in and he launched into some fairy-tale about<br />

self defense and me robbing him. In my weakened mental<br />

capacity, I actually wondered, would they believe the shit he<br />

was shoveling?<br />

From my angle down in the mud all I could see was the<br />

back of the police captain slapping Mafia Man and verbally<br />

bludgeoning him with a fusillade of angry Thai words. Of<br />

course, I didn’t understand a thing but I imagined it was<br />

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

balls still attached to your body, you will confess!” After that<br />

Mafia man started to spin a different story that came apart<br />

like wet tissue paper under the shrewd captain’s interrogation.<br />

This earned him another beating. Foolishly, the idiot<br />

then went into survival mode and pushed the captain aside<br />

in an attempt to escape. After all four officers were done, he<br />

was bleeding, unconscious and his face looked like one of<br />

those bloody, bruised and misshapen, latex masks that you<br />

see at Halloween.<br />

Eventually, the tough captain came over all smiles and<br />

asked, in perfect English, “Did you enjoy the taste of our<br />

country moonshine? I made it myself. We’ll drink some more<br />

tonight --- minus today’s special ingredient.” “What kind of<br />

special ingredient knocked me out so fast?” I croaked. Another<br />

smile, “Sleeping pills.” “Were they for elephants,” I queried.<br />

But before he could answer, Rung appeared with the<br />

remaining officers in tow and tenderly spoke, “You habn’t<br />

met my papa, uncle, broder or cousin yet, hab you tilac?”<br />

Well, this has been a busy month in terms of<br />

changes and non-changes to immigration<br />

procedure. Firstly, on the 19th December the<br />

government introduced charges for appeals<br />

against UK visa refusals. Visa applicants for<br />

settlement visas and family visit visas who have had their application<br />

refused, and wish to appeal against the decision, will now<br />

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

no representative present at the hearing ) will cost 80 GBP, and<br />

an “oral” hearing ( with a representative present) will cost 140<br />

GBP. The government has already said that these charges will be<br />

raised regularly. In addition, it will no longer be possible to submit<br />

an appeal at the Embassy where the application was made.<br />

The appeal will have to be submitted in the UK, either by post,<br />

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

the same time, either by bank draft or credit card.<br />

There were concerns that when charges were introduced<br />

for appeals, then the right of appeal against the refusal of family<br />

visit visa would be ended. This hasn’t happened, and the<br />

government reasoning on this is that someone who has been<br />

refused a family visit visa probably won’t appeal as the cost of<br />

the appeal ( 80 GBP ) is greater than the cost of re-applying ( 76<br />

GBP).<br />

One good thing, if there is a good thing, is that the appeal<br />

judge can award costs. So, if the appeal is allowed ( that means<br />

if the judge says that the UKBA decision was wrong ) then the<br />

judge can award the costs of the appeal against the UKBA. I<br />

don’t think that the UKBA will want to start paying costs for<br />

losing appeals, so I’m hoping that it will concentrate the visa<br />

officers’ minds a little more, and get them to make better decisions<br />

initially.<br />

One major concern in these new procedures is how the refusal<br />

decision will be reviewed. At the moment, when an appeal<br />

against a refusal decision is submitted ( currently by submitting<br />

the appeal at the Embassy in Bangkok) a review mechanism is<br />

started. The refusal decision must be reviewed by an Entry Clearance<br />

Manager before it is allowed to proceed to appeal in the<br />

UK, and the decision to refuse a visa can be overturned at this<br />

stage. With the new procedure, that allows the appeal to be<br />

submitted only in the UK, It seems that the applicant will have<br />

to pay the appeal fee ( in the UK ) before any review can be done<br />

at the refusing Embassy. This seems to be seriously disadvantaging<br />

the applicant, as well as adding considerable time to the<br />

whole review process. We are waiting to hear how the UKBA<br />

intend to deal with this.<br />

Secondly, the long awaited High Court judgment on English<br />

language testing has been released. The High Court has said<br />

that they see no discrimination in the language requirement,<br />

nor do they see that the requirement contravenes the right to<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

family life ( Sections 8 and 12 of the European Convention on Human<br />

Rights). The High Court Judge did say, at one point :<br />

“ the requirement to have passed a pre-entry English language<br />

test did interfere with the couple’s article 8 rights to a family<br />

life but this was justified in the interests of promoting integration<br />

and protecting public services.”<br />

I’m not entirely sure of the logic in that statement. The<br />

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

is around 50,000, I think. But, the number of legal migrants from<br />

the EU, and the number of asylum applicants is, I believe, in the<br />

hundreds of thousands, and there is no requirement for them ever<br />

to speak English or integrate. It does look a little bit like the easy<br />

targets are being penalised by the government.<br />

The judgment is long, and should you want to read it, you<br />

can find it here –<br />

http://www.judiciary.gov.uk/Resources/JCO/Documents/<br />

Judgments/chapti-others-judgment.pdf<br />

I think that there might be a further challenge in the European<br />

courts, but they probably won’t be successful as the language<br />

requirement has, I believe, already been tested in the courts in<br />

Europe.<br />

Thailand’s Contribution to the Land Campaigns of the United<br />

Nations in the Korean War<br />

In the early hours of a rainy Sunday, 25 June 1950, heavily<br />

armed military units from the Democratic People’s Republic<br />

of Korea (North Korea) launched an invasion of the<br />

Republic of Korea (South Korea). The action heralded the<br />

beginning of a protracted conflict that was to last for just<br />

over three years.<br />

Two days later, as the<br />

South Korean (ROK) defence<br />

forces crumbled and fell back,<br />

the UN Security Council met in<br />

hurried session and agreed to<br />

‘…furnish such assistance to<br />

the Republic of Korea as may be<br />

necessary to repel the armed<br />

attack and to restore international<br />

peace and security to the<br />

area.’ By-passing Congress,<br />

US President Harry Truman ordered<br />

the commander-in-chief<br />

of the Far East, General Douglas<br />

Macarthur, to provide whatever<br />

assistance was needed to repel<br />

the North Korean invasion. By<br />

referring to the conflict as a ‘police action’ instead of a full-blown<br />

‘war’, Truman was able, under the articles of the US Constitution,<br />

to justify his direct intervention rather than wait for Congress to<br />

give its assent.<br />

American forces based in occupied Japan were airlifted<br />

into South Korea and went into action for the first time on 5 July.<br />

Outnumbered and outgunned, the small South Korean army and<br />

the US forces fought delaying actions, aiming to gain the necessary<br />

time for more US reinforcements to arrive and for other UN<br />

member states to commit troops to the battlefield.<br />

US President G. Ford<br />

Part One<br />

By Duncan Stearn<br />

Britain was the first nation to agree to join the US in Korea,<br />

followed in rapid succession by Australia, France, Canada, and New<br />

Zealand. The first forces from these nations began arriving in southern<br />

Korea in late August.<br />

On 20 July 1950, following a late-night meeting lasting more<br />

than three hours by the members<br />

of the Defence Board of<br />

Thailand, an agreement was<br />

reached to offer a 4,000-strong<br />

contingent to support the UN<br />

effort. Prime Minister Pibul<br />

Songgram was quoted as saying,<br />

“Only by fast and decisive<br />

action can we cope with the<br />

critical situation all over Asia.”<br />

This was an oblique reference<br />

to the recent fall of China to<br />

the Communists as well as the<br />

on-going revolts against French<br />

rule in Vietnam and Laos and<br />

the largely expatriate Chinese<br />

insurgency in Malaya.<br />

That April, the United<br />

States had allocated more than $10 million worth of arms and other<br />

military equipment specifically designed to combat the so-called<br />

‘communist menace’. Money was also allocated for the construction<br />

of highways, especially for the north-east region of Thailand. This<br />

allocation further brought Thailand into the American sphere of<br />

influence, despite the large numbers of Chinese immigrants who<br />

made up a high proportion of the Thai population.<br />

Thailand’s first measure of support for South Korea had come<br />

on 30 June when she sent four tonnes of rice as a goodwill gesture.<br />

The UN and US officially accepted Thailand’s offer off troops<br />

for Korea on 16 August, the first by an Asian nation. Significantly,<br />

Thailand’s offer gave the lie to a claim by the Soviet Union that only<br />

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

European countries would send soldiers to fight in Korea. The Thai<br />

ambassador to the United States, Prince Wan Waithayakon ( Pictured<br />

directly below ) stated Thai forces were being committed “to<br />

defend the cause of peace, freedom and justice. Aggression must<br />

be stopped in Korea, or anywhere else, otherwise small nations will<br />

fall.” Although he stated Thai soldiers would be sent as soon as possible,<br />

it would be almost two months before the first troops were<br />

ready to embark.<br />

In September, the Philippines joined the UN coalition, becom-<br />

ing the first Asian country to put its soldiers on the ground<br />

in Korea. The coalition eventually encompassed 16 nations,<br />

with South Africa, the Netherlands, Greece, Belgium,<br />

Luxembourg, Ethiopia, Turkey and Colombia, committing<br />

troops to the United Nations Command (UNC), as the intervention<br />

force was known. Additionally, Denmark, India,<br />

Norway and Sweden provided medical units and Italy,<br />

although not a member of the UN, supplied a hospital.<br />

A newspaper report filed by the AAP-Reuter correspondent<br />

in Bangkok suggested the imminent arrival of<br />

the Thai Expeditionary Force (TEF) should ‘not be underrated’<br />

claiming the Thais would ‘likely [prove] a first-class<br />

small-arms fighting unit.’ The reporter noted the UN could<br />

expect a Thai soldier to possess three qualities: ‘imagination,<br />

patriotism, and personal bravery.’ It was noted the TEF<br />

was a voluntary force and ‘when the government called for<br />

4,000 men, 14,000 volunteered within a fortnight.’ Among<br />

those volunteers was Prince Chalermpol, who was assigned the<br />

rank of a captain in the infantry.<br />

A small advance force of Thai troops arrived in Japan on<br />

12 October. Eight days later a ceremony for 1,200 Thai infantrymen<br />

took place in Bangkok with a parade down Ratchadamnoen<br />

Avenue, reviewed by Army Commander-in-Chief General Phin<br />

Choonhavan. The commander told his men Communism was a<br />

menace which needed to be stopped, which is why Thai troops<br />

were now on their way to help in the defence of South Korea. This<br />

would be the first occasion Thai troops had served overseas since<br />

the First World War.<br />

The first contingent of Thai soldiers, designated the 21st<br />

Infantry Regiment, arrived in South Korea on 7 November. The Thais<br />

were initially assigned to the US 187th Airborne Regiment, then to<br />

I Corps (December 1950), IX Corps (January 1951), the 1st Cavalry<br />

Division (March 1951) and finally the 2nd Infantry Division (27<br />

December 1951).<br />

The Thai troops arrived during the coldest winter for two centuries.<br />

Despite the intensely cold weather, Thai morale was boosted<br />

by the arrival of 10 specialist cooks who provided traditional Thai<br />

cuisine to the soldiers.<br />

The Thais did not see action until almost four months after<br />

their arrival. In cold conditions, this first combat took place on 28<br />

February 1951 near Hoengsong on the central front. Assisting their<br />

ROK allies, the Thai troops, led by Colonel Boriboon Chulacharita,<br />

engaged the North Koreans in a two-hour battle. The Thais and ROK<br />

soldiers attacked the North Koreans in a two-pronged assault. The<br />

action ended with success, the Thais and ROK claiming 50 North<br />

Koreans killed and dozens wounded. The Thais suffered one man<br />

wounded.<br />

While operating with the US 1st Cavalry Division, the Thai contingent<br />

impressed their allies with a strong performance in action<br />

Thai trops attend a wounded comrade<br />

near Uijongbu,<br />

some 30<br />

kilometres northeast of Seoul. This was after the unofficial Chinese<br />

entry into the war which saw UN forces hurled back from the North<br />

Korea-China border. The action was prior to Seoul falling for the<br />

second time.<br />

A UN counter-offensive recovered Seoul and by the end of<br />

April 1951 the front line was established and maintained around<br />

the 38th Parallel, the pre-war boundary between the two Koreas.<br />

Is this the scariest film ever?<br />

Martyrs is being ranked as one of the scariest movies ever<br />

made by virtually everyone who sees it. Martyrs is a French film,<br />

originally released on September 3, 2008. The film is written and<br />

directed by Pascal Laugier who also wrote and directed the thriller<br />

Saint Ange, renamed House of Voices. Martyrs stars Morjana Alaoui<br />

as Anna and Mylene Jampanoi as Lucie with support given by Catherine<br />

Begin as Mademoiselle, Robert Toupin as Le pere, and Isabelle<br />

Chasse as La Creature.<br />

Martyrs begins with a flashback of a news report in<br />

1971 where Lucie, as a young girl, escapes from<br />

captivity and notifies police of her capture. There<br />

is no evidence of any sexual abuse but Lucie bears<br />

several injuries and shows signs of neglect. She is<br />

able to lead police to an old slaughterhouse where she was held cap-<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

tive but otherwise she can’t<br />

communicate because of the<br />

trauma she has suffered. When<br />

she is placed in a youth home<br />

to live, Lucie is befriended by<br />

Anna. Anna looks after Lucie<br />

and eventually they become<br />

best friends. Lucie, however, is<br />

being stalked by a ghoul taking<br />

the form of a thin, naked<br />

woman with pale gray skin that<br />

cuts and mutilates Lucie. Anna<br />

is sworn to keep Lucie’s secret<br />

about the shadowy creature.<br />

The movie now transports<br />

us 15 years ahead into 1986.<br />

The Belford family is having another<br />

early-morning argument.<br />

As brother, Antoine, and sister,<br />

Marie fight over a love note,<br />

dad tries to make breakfast<br />

while mom in out in the garden<br />

fixing the water. Finally, breakfast<br />

is ready and everyone sits<br />

down to eat when the doorbell<br />

rings. Dad goes to answer the<br />

door only to discover that it’s<br />

Lucie wielding a shotgun. Lucie<br />

pulls the trigger, killing dad,<br />

and proceeds to gruesomely<br />

murder the rest of the family as<br />

well. In the aftermath, Lucie is<br />

again attacked by the creature.<br />

She tries to explain that she did<br />

her job by killing the family but<br />

the creature doesn’t listen and<br />

continues to attack Lucie.<br />

Still friends, Lucie calls Anna for help. Anna arrives<br />

at the address and asks if these are really the people that<br />

kidnapped and tortured her those many years ago. Lucie<br />

says that they were and she is sure of it. As Anna helps Lucie<br />

bury the bodies, Lucie is attacked by the creature yet again.<br />

Meanwhile, Anna discovers that the mother is not really<br />

dead and tries to get her out of the house. Before she can<br />

get out, Lucie discovers the mother and finishes the job<br />

she started with a hammer. When the mother is dead, Lucie<br />

cries out to the monster yet again in hopes that it is appeased.<br />

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

The creature seems<br />

appeased at first and<br />

embraces Lucie in a gentle<br />

hug but soon the creature<br />

begins to cut into her<br />

arms. We are shown now<br />

that Anna cannot see the<br />

monster and an explosive<br />

scene shows how Lucie is<br />

the one making the cuts<br />

on herself. Martyrs then<br />

takes us into Lucie’s mind<br />

to see that the creature is<br />

actually another woman<br />

who was kidnapped and<br />

tortured with Lucie those<br />

many years ago. When Lucie realizes this, she remembers<br />

that she had an opportunity to save the<br />

woman when she escaped but she didn’t. She left<br />

the woman there to continue to be tortured. Later,<br />

we find out what becomes of this other women.<br />

At this point, Lucie is overcome with feelings of<br />

remorse and kills herself with by slicing her own<br />

throat.<br />

Anna discovers Lucie’s body and cleans it up,<br />

wrapping her in a clean cloth. Anna then begins to<br />

attempt to clean up the house when she discovers<br />

a secret tunnel behind a cabinet. Inside is a hidden<br />

staircase that leads down into a large underground<br />

torture chamber. The walls of the complex are<br />

adorned with photos of suffering people. Inside<br />

is a naked woman chained to the wall. A metal blindfold is secured to her head<br />

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

this woman and give her a bath, but the woman is completely out of her mind<br />

and starts mutilating herself and tries to cut off her own arm.<br />

The rest of the film continues in an even more gruesome fashion. The<br />

final 30 minutes include some of the most intense scenes ever caught on film.<br />

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

This is one film that pushes the envelope beyond anything you have ever seen<br />

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

the combination of sights, sounds, and mood works together to take you to<br />

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

challenged in Martyrs. These people seem real enough and make you think this<br />

is more than someone’s fantasy. Martyrs finishes with a completely satisfying<br />

ending. Satisfying, however, doesn’t mean you will be expecting it.<br />

One of the best aspects of Martyrs is its originality. Most other modern horror<br />

movies all seem to be just variations on the same thing and once one catches<br />

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

it seems rushed by this description, Martyrs is actually paced well. Editing work<br />

with different camera angles also helps to create the overall mood of the movie.<br />

Some of the final shots in the movie<br />

turn out to be some of the best and are<br />

executed like a well-written poem.<br />

Martyrs is definitely not for everyone.<br />

The movie is disturbing to be sure.<br />

For those that like to have their notions<br />

about the world challenged, this<br />

is a film that accomplishes just that.<br />

However, the world you are introduced<br />

to is one that you are not sure you are<br />

better off knowing or not.<br />

Pattaya Trader<br />

Another tale from the prolific pen<br />

of Mike Bell.<br />

He left school at fifteen on Friday July 20th<br />

and started work in a Sheffield steel factory<br />

the following Monday. In the blink of<br />

an eye he had married, become the father<br />

of two, divorced and retired. He had spent<br />

nearly fifty years working to the sound of the steam hammer.<br />

The five ton hammer crashed down on the ingots of iron every<br />

minute of every day until the factory closed and it was this that<br />

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

peace and quiet.’ He didn’t find it in Pattaya.<br />

Wherever he lodged, the beat of the bass reverberated in<br />

his head. He had thought Thais were shy and retiring people;<br />

polite and respectful to others. In many ways they were until<br />

the music started. Then they would turn up the bass and the<br />

volume to deafening levels. Tony could hear cars approaching<br />

his window a half a mile away, their windscreens trembling with<br />

the resonance from inside. Bars would pump it up till the early<br />

hours and sleep would finally overwhelm him in blessed relief.<br />

His new wife, Lek, couldn’t comprehend the size of the<br />

problem. To her, music was ‘sanook.’ The lateness of the hour<br />

mattered not if they could sleep late in the morning. She’d set<br />

about educating Tony in Thai-ness as soon as they were married.<br />

She taught him the futility of bad temper. Violent and<br />

rude gestures, prolonged sounding of the horn might just<br />

result in the Thai version of road-rage involving the next set of<br />

traffic lights and a gun.<br />

If you’ve enjoyed Mike’s short stories, you<br />

might be interested to learn that the Complete<br />

Anthology can be purchases on Amazon as a<br />

Kindle down-load. Alternatively by downloading<br />

the FREE software, you can get the book<br />

as an e-book. The price is $10 - the title is ‘Thai<br />

Tales’.<br />

Mike has also released his collection of<br />

funny articles, some of which were published<br />

in Pattaya One and Pattaya Daily News. Entitled<br />

‘Amusing Thailand - A Survivor’s Guide<br />

to Pattaya’, these can also be purchased in the<br />

same way as above.<br />



In his turn Tony tried to explain the effect of a steam hammer<br />

assailing his ear-drums three times a minute for nigh on<br />

fifty years. She could not comprehend the concept of shellshock.<br />

Doctors often suggest that prolonged exposure to loud<br />

music could cause deafness in later life. They never suggest<br />

that noise might leave you more sensitive in your final years. So<br />

they moved to Bang Saray.<br />

It was everything Tony could have hoped for. The up-market<br />

estate was four hundred metres from the traffic noise on<br />

Sukhumvit. High walls insulated the houses from the bustle<br />

of life outside. The estate’s Juristic rules forbade building work<br />

before 9 am and after 6 pm. Even the birds seemed apologetic<br />

about their morning chorus.<br />

Lek, initially skeptical about the move away from shops,<br />

learned to appreciate it. The local Market was three times a<br />

week. The secluded beach was four minutes away and only<br />

ever busy on Sunday. Her life was filled with contentment,<br />

particularly at the change that had come over her husband: he<br />

seemed to float in a pocket of silence; a bubble of serenity. It<br />

lasted nearly a year.<br />

Any sizable living organism attracts parasites: hippos get<br />

birds to feed off tics in their ears; sharks get remora fish to flit<br />

in and out of their mouths cleaning their teeth. Sixty farang<br />

houses were bound to create a symbiotic relationship with the<br />

local community. First came the itinerant food-sellers peddling<br />

som-tam to the residents’ wives. Next came an enterprising<br />

laundry lady who set up a corrugated iron shack to provide<br />

washing and ironing facilities. Then came a hairdresser, a<br />

Mecca for gossip-exchange. Tony minded none of this. They all<br />

kept the peace.<br />

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

Then building began on an edifice not fifty metres from<br />

their wall. Rumour had it was going to be a smart Italian<br />

restaurant; a Travel agent; a copy shop; a bar with pool tables.<br />

Tony feared the worst at this latter. In fact, when it came, it was<br />

worse than his most horrible imaginings. There isn’t a word in<br />

English to describe what it was. A Convention centre doesn’t<br />

do it justice. It was a place for ceremonies; funerals, youths entering<br />

the monkhood, wedding receptions, a place for the local<br />

youth to practice producing discordant music at full volume.<br />

The weekends, in particular became hell on earth for<br />

Tony. Saturday nights seemed to be disco or worse, karaoke<br />

nights. Drunken would-be Tata Youngs would warble shrilly off<br />

key. The DJ’s offered some respite haranguing people excitedly<br />

at the top of their voices, but then the boom of the bass sent<br />

tremors through the marital bed. He tried ear-plugs; he tried<br />

whiskey. He even tried sleeping nights away.<br />

Sunday mornings would begin at 6am with the dirge like,<br />

tuneless drum and base signifying a religious ceremony. He<br />

even began to look forward to the moment when these instruments<br />

ceased, to be replaced by the monotony of the chanting<br />

monks. Tony wasn’t alone in his misery. Dougie, a neighbour<br />

had snapped one Saturday night. Afterwards he said he’d only<br />

gone round to ask the proprietor to turn the bass down. His<br />

attempts to smash the speakers had resulted him being given<br />

a good beating by Surapong, the proprietor and twenty of his<br />

customers. Tony put his house on the market.<br />

There were no buyers at any price. Farangs, in the know,<br />

wouldn’t touch the house. Even reducing the house to Thai<br />

price brought no interest. Lek explained, Thais were reluctant<br />

to buy second hand houses lest the previous owner had died<br />

there and the property came complete with ghost. Tony tried<br />

one last throw of the dice.<br />

Surapong watched the farang with suspicion. He didn’t<br />

like them. They were in his country yet they came telling him<br />

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:<br />


what to do about making money. They did not realize how<br />

much the bank demanded on the loan for the buildings and<br />

fittings. He was not complaining, another two years at this rate<br />

and he would be home free. This farang appeared drunk or<br />

drugged. All night he had raved, dancing in reckless abandon,<br />

waving his arms about, sweating, showing off in front of his<br />

young wife. It was dangerous behaviour at his age.<br />

Even as the thought crossed his mind, the farang collapsed.<br />

He clutched his chest in pain and fell heavily to the<br />

floor. His wife cradled his head in her lap, imploring someone<br />

to phone an ambulance. Though it arrived within ten minutes,<br />

it was obvious to all that it was too late. The farang had shuddered<br />

and trembled on the floor and then simply died.<br />

His body had been claimed by his children to be buried in<br />

England, Lek tearfully told a crowded hairdresser’s. He had left<br />

her the house and car. His pension would enable her continue<br />

to live here. She saw his face every where she went. She heard<br />

his voice calling for her in the night. He had died happy on<br />

Surapong’s premises; she would never forget that night or the<br />

place; the exact spot right in the middle of Surapong’s dance<br />

hall. The first two Saturday nights, she visited, laying a lotus<br />

flower on the ground. People danced round the flower at a<br />

distance.<br />

Within two months, Surapong was forced to close. Business<br />

dropped like a stone. No one wanted a visitation from<br />

Tony’s ghost. The owner of the laundry made a derisory offer<br />

on the building and to her surprise it was accepted. Peace<br />

returned to Bang Saray and so did Tony.<br />

Tony didn’t enjoy his enforced, long holiday in England,<br />

visiting friends and family. The weather was cold; prices were<br />

expensive and, above all else, he said, “the place was just too<br />

noisy”.<br />

DAYS OUT<br />

Mekong Delta<br />

This month we take a trip down Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.<br />

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

spend a few days.<br />

Getting there: Take a flight to HCMC. From there, buses<br />

leave regularly for My Tho, the gateway to the Delta. Once in<br />

the Delta, a network of buses and tour companies make it pretty<br />

simple to get around.<br />

The mighty Mekong river empties its vast waters into<br />

southern Vietnam, creating patchwork collection of<br />

fields and waterways. Exploring the towns that sit<br />

around the massive Delta reveals a collection of friendly<br />

locals who are proud of their unique culture, food and<br />

rituals.<br />

After the Mekong flows from the Tibetan<br />

Plateau it travels 4,500km through China, Burma,<br />

Laos, Thailand and Cambodia before finally<br />

reaching Vietnam. One of the world’s truly great<br />

rivers, it then diverges as it meets southern<br />

Vietnam’s lowlands, creating the Mekong Delta.<br />

Exploring the Delta doesn’t mean you<br />

need to do it all by boat. Good bus links and<br />

several new bridges mean transport is easier<br />

than ever. Such convenience is making it a<br />

popular destination for local and foreign visitors.<br />

That said, many towns are still to feel the<br />

impact of such development, and so still have<br />

to contend with pot-holed roads.<br />

If you come here, chances are you will land<br />

in My Tho. It’s not much of a centerpiece, but it<br />

Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng)<br />

does have a pleasant waterfront. In the<br />

evening, locals stroll along here, teenagers<br />

hurl themselves into the water off<br />

the top of boats and food hawkers sell<br />

delicious fried snacks on a stick.<br />

When it comes to things to do<br />

here, options are limited. There is a<br />

large tourist information centre half<br />

way along the main drag, where a<br />

handful of tour companies can offer<br />

help. We found Tieng Giang Tourist<br />

(www.tiengiangtourist.com) to<br />

be pretty helpful. If you want a more<br />

personalized tour, it’s often cheaper to<br />

hire the freelance drivers who can be<br />

found around town. Walk for more than<br />

10 minutes and one will approach, you<br />

offering to help. One such guide, Mr Ty,<br />

was excellent value (mobile: 01 6961<br />

71757).<br />

The perfect place to sit in such<br />

a sleepy town is Lac Hong, a seriously<br />

retro place with saxophones and classic vinyl stuck to the walls.<br />

Elsewhere, there is a 100-year-old Catholic church and there is the<br />

impressive Vinh Trang Pagoda, the largest of its kind in the province.<br />

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

styles.<br />

Most of the attractions here are off-shore, though. A series of<br />

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

trips. Known as the ‘Coconut Islands’ they contain several touristy<br />

stop-offs – tours round here are pretty slick and well organized.<br />

The dense collection of coconut trees gives the islands its names<br />

and results in some sweet desserts, made with sticky rice, that can’t<br />

be found anywhere else in Vietnam.<br />

A new bridge in My Tho<br />

opened in 2008 and meant<br />

nearby Ben Tre suddenly got<br />

visitors. Ben The gives a far<br />

more authentic slice of Delta<br />

life, with rice fields, chickens<br />

getting right of way on the<br />

roads and small village huts.<br />

Locals are slowly catching on to<br />

its appeal and many now offer<br />

homestays in basic accommodation.<br />

They will often take<br />

visitors out fishing for the day<br />

before returning home for a<br />

dinner and evening around the<br />

karaoke machine.<br />

In the centre of Ben Tre<br />

(which isn’t saying much), there is a novel museum,<br />

complete with anti-US rhetoric and a giant<br />

crocodile skull. Entry is free.<br />

Our favourite spot on the Delta is Vinh Long,<br />

a town with heavy French influence and charm.<br />

About 40 km from My Tho, Vinh Long has its own<br />

islands that can be explored on half-day excursions.<br />

Fruit farms sit all around these islands, making<br />

it a great place to stop off and sample some<br />

of the foods on offer. If you want to head inland,<br />

bicycles can be provided for as little as $3 a day.<br />

Further west sits Tra Vinh, a town heavily<br />

influenced by the Khmer (a large population of<br />

Khmer folk still lives near here). This makes for<br />

interesting-looking temples and local food. Elsewhere,<br />

Can Tho Province has a modern eponymous<br />

main town and a good handful of attractions.<br />

Best of these is the Can Tho Museum, which is free and gives<br />

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:<br />


a good explanation of what local life is like here. Best<br />

of all though is the main market, which is filled with<br />

fresh fruit, while the seafront restaurants are good, if<br />

you fancy a dish of snake or turtle.<br />

The other main draw in the Delta is very different<br />

from everything else there. Phu Quoc Island is a fastdeveloping<br />

haven for gamblers, as giant casinos are<br />

opening. It’s also a pleasant beach resort, with 150km<br />

of sandy coastline. It has a chequered history – the<br />

French occupied the island in the 19th century and<br />

opened a prison there – but today it is better known<br />

for its luxurious resorts. The old prison is actually an attraction<br />

in its own right. Displays of torture equipment<br />

and stories of prisoners who tried to escape make it<br />

worth a look.<br />

Phu Quoc still retains a largely serene, natural feel<br />

thanks to a local population<br />

that has lived there for generations.<br />

For a classy souvenir,<br />

Treasures From the Deep<br />

(www.treasuresfromthedeep.<br />

com ) tells the story of the<br />

high-quality pearls that are<br />

sold here, along with a story<br />

about how local people have<br />

collected them.<br />

The Delta has a whole<br />

heap of attractions ready to be<br />

explored and now is the time to<br />

go, before they build even more<br />

bridges and make it too easy to<br />

get around.<br />

In two parts - Part 1<br />

The New Year was looming, and I had the choice of<br />

staying in Pattaya, or heading off elsewhere to see<br />

the old year out. My recent trip to Chiang Mai had<br />

been Ok but left many things undone, so I decided<br />

to rectify this and revisit the area.<br />

About a week before, I went to Bangkok to book the train,<br />

and managed to get almost the last tickets available for both the<br />

outward and return journeys. On my return to Pattaya, I found that<br />

the hotel I usually stay at to be fully booked and it took a couple<br />

of hours of trawling the ‘net’ before I found a place that had a<br />

vacancy.<br />

Arriving at Hua Lamphong station on the evening of 30th<br />

December, it seemed like the whole of Bangkok was on the move<br />

for the holiday period. The 19.35 train to Chiang Mai should<br />

have left from Platform 3, but standing there in its place was a<br />

train that took you back in time to the days of luxury train travel,<br />

‘The Eastern and Orient Express’ bound for Singapore via Kuala<br />

Lumpur , The rear portion of the last carriage had open sides as<br />

an observation car, walking alongside the train revealed palatial<br />

wood panelled compartments and a dining car , tables complete<br />

with lamps, silver cutlery, cut glass wine goblets and Champagne<br />

buckets. At least six chefs in tall hats were preparing what must<br />

have been a feast of culinary delights, for those aboard. One can<br />

only imagine the cost of travelling in the decadent and luxurious<br />

style of an age gone by.<br />

Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

For those merely mortals like<br />

myself, we were herded to platform<br />

6, to which our ‘Special Express’ had<br />

been diverted. At 19.35, the time it<br />

was due to depart, it arrived at the<br />

platform for us to board, having<br />

located our allocated upper bunks,<br />

we awaited for our ‘Express’ to depart,<br />

which it did an hour late. The initial<br />

part of our journey was more like a<br />

commuter train than an ‘Express’ as it<br />

lumbered slowly along with frequent<br />

stops, although none of them at a<br />

station. The lights in the sleeping car<br />

were left blazing all night, despite<br />

each bunk having individual lighting.<br />

The arrival time according to the<br />

timetable was 8.45am, but of course<br />

this was never going to be achievable<br />

given our delayed departure. Two<br />

hours out from Chiang Mai at 10am,<br />

travelling through the jungle on an<br />

upgrade, the train got slower and slower until we came to a halt, it<br />

seems that the engine did not have enough power to get us over<br />

the incline, and so we began to move in reverse, all the way back<br />

to the last station where a ‘down train’ could pass, and a second<br />

engine summoned from Lampang to help get us up and over the<br />

hill. Having eventually overcome this obstacle the ‘Express’ arrived<br />

at its destination at 1.15pm , some four and a half hours late. Having<br />

phoned ahead to the hotel to advise of our impending late<br />

arrival, we were told not to worry, as the train frequently doesn’t<br />

arrive until 4pm!!. One wonders at the wisdom of giving an arrival<br />

time at all, as we were informed that it never arrives on schedule<br />

anyway.<br />

After checking in at the hotel, the next priority was to hire<br />

a motorbike, but again it seemed the world and its wife wanted<br />

to do the same and it was some three hours before we located a<br />

renter with a motorcycle. At 1000Bt for four days hire, I considered<br />

it expensive, especially as I’d just returned a motorcycle I’d had on<br />

hire in Pattaya which had cost me 3,000Bt for six weeks.<br />

In the evening we visited the Night Bazaar, (top picture<br />

next page) like every market in Thailand, the items on offer are<br />

the same, the only difference being the name on the ‘T’ shirts,<br />

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

Eve, we walked to the moat and City Walls, which encircle it, and<br />

were fortunate to find a concrete bench to sit upon. The sky was<br />

full of ‘floating lanterns’, obviously being released from all parts<br />

of the City and its surrounds. On the other side of the ‘moat’ we<br />

watched as revellers, lit and released lanterns, some unsuccessfully<br />

as they became entrapped in the trees on their journey<br />

skywards. Fireworks were being set off all the time, and all around<br />

us by individuals, some of which exploded prematurely causing<br />

those in the immediate vicinity<br />

to scatter. Nearby where<br />

we were sitting, a busker<br />

played ‘Old Lang Syne’ on a<br />

Saxophone accompanied by a<br />

passer by on a ‘penny whistle’.<br />

At midnight and our entry into<br />

the New year, the sky exploded<br />

as fireworks from all around the<br />

City were propelled into the air,<br />

it was like being in the centre<br />

of a 360 degree display and accompanied<br />

by the noise of artillery<br />

fire. Eventually we made<br />

our way back to the hotel along<br />

streets littered with the remnants<br />

of spent pyrotechnics .<br />

New Years day, and we<br />

left to visit Doi Suthet Temple,<br />

(Middle picture) unfortunately<br />

it appeared that most of The author of the article, Wilson and his<br />

Chiang Mai had the same idea lovely lady pictured at Doi Suthet Temple,<br />

too, and the traffic was bumper<br />

to bumper until we were<br />

well out of the City, and on the winding mountain road that leads<br />

to the Temple, fortunately for us, my motorcycle skills, honed in<br />

Pattaya, made short shrift of the traffic problems with various<br />

undertaking, overtaking, and straight down the middle manoeuvres,<br />

although I imagine that some of those in gridlocked vehicles<br />

would have taken several hours to reach their destination. We had<br />

some respite from traffic congestion for about fifteen kilometres,<br />

before encountering more traffic jams some three kilometres<br />

from the Temple, negotiating these was a little more difficult due<br />

to the road being quite steep in places and having many hairpin<br />

bends, but all was overcome and we arrived a little over an hour<br />

from setting off. To get to the Temple, one has to climb some three<br />

hundred steps, difficult enough under normal circumstances,<br />

but even more so given the volume of visitors<br />

moving both up and down, plus the number of children<br />

in ‘costume’ sitting on the stairs at regular intervals hoping<br />

to have their picture taken, and receive a ‘tip’ for their<br />

trouble.<br />

After having escaped the throngs at the Temple, we<br />

continued onward and upward along the twisting mountain<br />

road to Bhubing Palace, where the Royal Family stays<br />

during seasonal visits. The gardens are beautifully laid<br />

out with all manner of colourful blooms and plants. The<br />

‘water reservoir’ contains the ‘Fountain of Celestial Water<br />

of People’, at all areas of the gardens,<br />

tranquil music is playing, giving a<br />

relaxing feeling to the whole experience.<br />

Still continuing up further<br />

into the mountains we came to Doi<br />

Pui Mong Hill Tribe village, (bottom<br />

picture) sustained by tourism<br />

there were many opportunities to<br />

purchase local crafts at a considerable<br />

discount for the same items<br />

in the City, visitors could also hire<br />

traditional costumes at 30Bt each, to<br />

wear during their visit, and of course<br />

be photographed in, mainly by the<br />

waterfall, and in the gardens which<br />

are also a feature of the village.<br />

Our return journey to the<br />

hotel, whilst again encountering<br />

considerable traffic was a little easier<br />

and enabled us to arrive back before<br />

darkness fell.<br />

It is common for Western companies and governments to<br />

pay an additional compensation to staff for the “hardship”<br />

of being posted abroad. I have always thought that one<br />

of the great scams of the ages for eligible employees.<br />

I mean, seriously, working and living in Hong Kong or<br />

Tokyo or Rio or Buenos Aires is a hardship?<br />

But since moving first to Thailand and then eventually to<br />

Cambodia, I’ve had to rethink my position – and my understanding<br />

of hardship.<br />

You see, our cable TV network, which originates in Thailand,<br />

does not carry games of the National Football League, the NFL,<br />

the crowning glory of American football.<br />

The rest of the world may well scoff at our National Game.<br />

In well over a decade of living in the Philippines, Thailand,<br />

and now Cambodia I’ve come to respect and even enjoy “real”<br />

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

watched a Bundesliga match and found it well played and competitive!<br />

BUT. No NFL? At all? Not even one game weekly? Now, that<br />

is a hardship.<br />

Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

This topic came to mind last night while reading a series of<br />

blog posts written a year ago and more by a young Canadian<br />

man who’d said he’d come to Cambodia to work as an unpaid<br />

volunteer English teacher at a village near Siem Reap.<br />

After two months in-country he wrote the first of a series of<br />

posts excoriating all things Khmer. They were all<br />

stupid, lazy, corrupt, dangerous, and rude. Former<br />

Khmer Rouge goons roamed the countryside<br />

raping and murdering with impunity, sadists<br />

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

to catch his meaning. He<br />

wrote it literally as reported above. Well, not the<br />

line about sadists in saffron robes – that’s mine.<br />

∞<br />

So outrageous, racist, arrogant and stupid<br />

were his remarks that reading them make me<br />

remember having made similar remarks about<br />

Filipinos during my decade-plus-living there.<br />

Such comments were both common and unchallenged<br />

among foreigners living in the Philippines.<br />

I also remembered hearing the same kind<br />

of slurs about Thais in the two years I lived there.<br />

Wow! Was I – were we – all such assholes that we<br />

would slander an entire people because some<br />

(OK, maybe many) of them did us wrong?<br />

So it appears.<br />

∞<br />

Which leads to the next obvious question: Why are we<br />

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

chosen to live in places with cultures so – well, foreign to our<br />

own?<br />

Unless you work in a multinational company or big NGO<br />

and get that cushy hardship stipend (in which case the answer<br />

is obvious and you need read no further) the answer is likely<br />

somewhat complex.<br />

Because you can live much better on your retirement check<br />

here than you can back home. Because you think back home<br />

has gone all to hell. Because you still crave a sex life unavailable<br />

back home. Because it feels good to help a hardworking, impoverished<br />

people dig and claw their way up from inherited misery.<br />

Because you like the weather. Likely you’d check more than one<br />

of the above. For me, it’s all the above.<br />

∞<br />

Actually, I haven’t had any cultural issues with Khmer<br />

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

hideous noise they blast at obscene volume whenever there’s a<br />

wedding or funeral. But everybody – including Khmers – hates<br />

that. The other big issue I have with local folk is their just awful<br />

driving habits, but I understand that they’ve had no driver training<br />

and the police don’t enforce any traffic laws (except the one<br />

requiring motorbike drivers to wear helmets, and that’s enforced<br />

strictly to extort bribes).<br />

Which incidentally leads to an unrelated observation:<br />

Almost all Khmer motorbike riders in Siem Reap wear helmets. It<br />

seems that law enforcement does work.<br />

There’s really only one ethnic group that I just can’t get<br />

along with. No, not Russians. And no, not Indians. French.<br />

Is there a more smug, arrogant, rude race on earth? Not<br />

that I know of. I had to actually throw one French couple out of<br />

our restaurant not long ago for accusing us of watering our fresh<br />

coconuts. That’s right, they accused us of refilling coconut shells<br />

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

coconut.<br />

We were deeply offended that they thought we’d cheat<br />

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

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

Macs, dammit!<br />

∞<br />

And what’s with this<br />

crap of eating baked beans<br />

with breakfast? But I’ll save<br />

that for another day…<br />

∞<br />

Anyway, here’s hoping<br />

that 2012 will be a healthy,<br />

peaceful, and prosperous<br />

year for us all. And for all our<br />

Khmer, Thai, and Filipino<br />

neighbors, as well.<br />

PCEC Meeting – Monthly Review – December 2011<br />

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

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

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

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<br />

Club’s website.<br />

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

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

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

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<br />

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

On December 4, the guest speaker was Michael Flinn, (Pictured<br />

below) a life-long scholar in the history and development<br />

of human consciousness,<br />

religion, art, civilization and<br />

human behaviour. Michael<br />

started his presentation by<br />

explaining how he got into<br />

art and philosophy. After<br />

he graduated in 1964, he<br />

travelled to Europe where<br />

he had the opportunity to<br />

study architecture and the<br />

works of the great philosophers.<br />

He then explained<br />

how this led to his studies<br />

on the consciousness of<br />

man; becoming self aware. He concluded that no matter how<br />

much you study human consciousness, you still will not really<br />

gain an understanding of the imponderable.<br />

Old landmines and explosive remnants of war continue<br />

to kill and maim people today. This was the message at the<br />

PCEC’s Sunday, December<br />

11 meeting. The Club<br />

welcomed two representatives<br />

of the Mine<br />

Action Department of<br />

the Norwegian People’s<br />

Aid organization. Mr. Lee<br />

Moroney, (Pictured alongside)<br />

Program Manager in<br />

Thailand and Mr. Jan Erik<br />

in Cambodia described<br />

their assistance to those<br />

two countries in getting<br />

rid of this old explosive ordinance left over from past wars. They<br />

pointed out that in both Thailand and Cambodia; the primary effort<br />

is to reclaim land for habitation and use. Consequently, they<br />

give priority to such areas rather than clearing known mined<br />

areas where the land has no suitable use.<br />

The third Sunday, December 18, the Club had its Christmas<br />

celebration. (Pictures next page) During the past three years, it<br />

has been almost standing room only when the Children’s Choir<br />

from Pattaya Orphanage comes to the meeting to share the spirit<br />

of Christmas. This year was no exception. Mrs. Radchada Chomjinda<br />

(Khun Toy) from Pattaya Orphanage said it was a privilege<br />

for the children from the Orphanage to be back again this year to<br />

sing Christmas Carols for the Club. Several young ladies started<br />

with a couple of dances, one traditional Thai and the other a bit<br />

more modern. Then, about 50 children in choir robes came in and<br />

sang several Carols. While they were singing “Santa Claus is Coming<br />

to Town,” Santa appear ed with a bag full of goodies, which<br />

he passed out to the smiling children while Khun Toy gave a brief<br />

history on the Orphanage.<br />

Movie making in the 1960’s was the topic at the Pattaya City<br />

Expats Club meeting on Sunday, December 25. There were over<br />

80 members and guests present on Christmas Day to hear Pattaya<br />

resident Alfred Avallone, (Pictured below) talk about his career as<br />

a Hollywood actor. He mentioned his studying at The American<br />

Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York at the same time as many later<br />

movie stars, such as Grace Kelly and Anne Bancroft. He explained<br />

how he went from acting on the New York stage to acting in films<br />

when he moved to Hollywood.<br />

He described<br />

some of the aspects of<br />

Hollywood film making<br />

and then presented<br />

a video clip showing<br />

him acting in the Blake<br />

Edward’s movie “Experiment<br />

in Terror” starring<br />

Glenn Ford and Lee<br />

Remick. He also commented<br />

on some of the<br />

differences between<br />

movies and actors of<br />

that period with movies<br />

and actors of today.<br />

something. And from the audience came a great piece of advice, in your<br />

will make sure you leave something to everyone in your family, including<br />

your ex-spouse(s). This way they can’t contest the will since you left them<br />

something, even if it is only 50 Baht!<br />

One Beer too Many<br />

Disclaimer. Any similarity to any person/s or events<br />

characters depicted in this story are figments of the author’s<br />

imagination.<br />

Taken from Les Abbey’s Soi Shanties<br />

***********************************************<br />

It was only a few beers into the afternoon session at Barry’s<br />

bar but the conversation was about the one beer too<br />

many, that when drunk causes a grown man to topple<br />

over or perform some embarrassing misdeed. It had probably<br />

started because Robert, who had been in the bar<br />

until late yesterday, but missing so far today, had made a bit of a<br />

fool of himself last night.<br />

Not that Robert had done that much according to Barry,<br />

who had been talking with him right up until the moment that<br />

Robert had yawned, closed his eyes, leant back on his stool and<br />

then kept on going until hitting the floor. Barry had said that the<br />

conversation was getting strange as he didn’t think himself and<br />

Robert were talking about the same thing anymore. Tim asked<br />

Barry how many beers Robert had drunk, but Barry wasn’t sure<br />

except he had drunk less than half of the last beer Singha. Barry<br />

also reminded the drinkers<br />

that Robert still owed for his<br />

bar bill.<br />

Tim, a regular customer,<br />

said “You can always<br />

tell when Jon Slocum has<br />

had too much. He always<br />

drops his pants and dances<br />

around the bar.”<br />

Les followed that<br />

with “Then again Tim the<br />

fact that he always does it<br />

should tell us a bit more<br />

than that.”<br />

“What do you mean<br />

Les?” asked Tim.<br />

“Well if he always does<br />

it, you have to suspect that<br />

it’s in his mind to start with.<br />

The extra beer may give him courage, but he wants to expose<br />

himself anyway. You know, he’s one of those exhibitionists. He has<br />

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

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

day we heard he had been arrested for that.”<br />

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

such an ugly site when he’s in full swing.”<br />

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

Les to the accompaniment of laughter from the drinkers.<br />

Pat Morrison started to tell his story. “A couple of months<br />

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

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

had been drinking on the plane for the last few hours. I got a taxi<br />

to the hotel, dropped off my bags and made my way to the Soi. I<br />

stopped here first and had a beer didn’t I Barry?”<br />

“That’s right.” answered Barry who started to grin.<br />

“Said hello to you Les,” and turning Tim, said “and you too<br />

Tim. I remember that.”<br />

Both Les and Tim nodded<br />

their assent.<br />

“Then as always on a first<br />

night in I walked down the<br />

Soi to say my hellos and see<br />

what’s new going on. I figured<br />

I would find a girlfriend too.”<br />

“So what happened?”<br />

asked Tim.<br />

“Well you have to remember<br />

I was getting a bit<br />

tired by then and that’s my<br />

excuse. I had a couple beers<br />

in various bars and then saw<br />

a new bar had opened right<br />

down the end. I thought I<br />

have to go and check it out.<br />

I could see the name board<br />

said ‘Bullshooters’ and had a<br />

picture of dartboard on it.”<br />

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

As Pat finished the last sentence there was laughter<br />

from a few of the drinkers.<br />

Pat continued “It’s OK you lot laughing but I<br />

thought a game of darts is always fun with the bar<br />

girls. I went through the door and it was a bit dark<br />

inside. I thought I would sit down for a few minutes. A<br />

nice looking girl came over and took my drink order,<br />

but before it even came to the table I had dozed off.<br />

Next thing I remember I’m being shaken awake and<br />

another girl is telling me it’s throwing out time, two in<br />

the morning. I asked for a fresh beer and whatever she<br />

wanted to drink and off she went to get it.”<br />

“So I’m coming too now and looking around<br />

the bar. It’s still fairly crowded but I don’t recognize<br />

anyone, customers or girls, which seemed unusual. I’m<br />

thinking the bar owner must have gone upcountry<br />

and got a whole bunch of new girls. So the girl comes<br />

back with the beer and her drink, puts the new bill in<br />

the cup and sits down with me. She chats away and<br />

her English isn’t bad and I’m thinking I may have company<br />

tonight.”<br />

Pat takes a swallow of his beer.<br />

One of the younger drinkers says “So go on Pat. I<br />

can’t say I remember that bar.”<br />

Barry answers. “No it didn’t last very long. It was<br />

gone in a month.”<br />

Pat picks up the story. “Well they didn’t seem<br />

in that much of hurry to get the customers out and<br />

we are chatting away. The girl, I think her name was<br />

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:<br />


Joy, was asking me about my<br />

hotel and I thinking well my<br />

evening’s sorted. Then she<br />

grabs my hand and puts it on<br />

her lap. Now straight away I<br />

realize that there something<br />

very wrong here. I said to her,<br />

‘Is that what I think it is?’ and<br />

she gives a knowing smile and<br />

nods her head. Then I start<br />

to look around the bar again<br />

and see that maybe the girls<br />

Adam’s apples are a little too<br />

large and when they talk just<br />

maybe their voices are a wee<br />

bit to low.”<br />

Pat takes another gulp<br />

of his beer but he knows he<br />

has the audience in his hand<br />

so he drags it out a few extra<br />

seconds. “Well as the Sunday<br />

tabloids used to say, ‘I made<br />

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

guys and having to explain I had been sleeping in the Bullshooters for three<br />

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

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

nothing to do with darts.”<br />

“You didn’t have an epiphany then Pat?” said Les.<br />

“What does that mean Les?” asked Pat.<br />

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

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

second best’.”<br />

Dear Reader.<br />

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

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

are fortunate enough to get to publish every month.<br />

N<br />


Looking at the stars for far-too-long<br />

you spy potatoes walking on the moon.<br />

Your girlfriend the so-pale ghost<br />

the tips pointy as are pyramids<br />

Strange snake-charming lady, ooh !<br />


At the foot of the Himalayas<br />

and looking way up ahead,<br />

you’ve your hymns and your hopes,<br />

Surely best to aim far higher,<br />

to make your mission to the moon.<br />

You’ll fall short of the target<br />

but will reach the top real soon.<br />

Beware the Abominable Snowmen<br />

on whose mountains you’ll intrude,<br />

in your spiritual climb and solitude.<br />


I am with Mr Sillitoe<br />

who wrote of punting down river.<br />

Through Blake’s greener England to go<br />

in very sunny weather.<br />

To hear a sedge-warbler sound,<br />

see the odd mink or rarer otter.<br />

City boat-racers hear then my song:<br />

“I am punting for Albion”.<br />

It is your funeral<br />

now you are tied<br />

to the girl who is<br />

your black-gowned bride.<br />

You think the gown white,<br />

white as virgin snow,<br />

but dark the heart<br />

of the black-widow.<br />

It is your funeral,<br />

her veil now lift.<br />

Kiss the bride<br />

and yes, death kiss.<br />



One of the Thai-girls I came to know<br />

gave herself the nickname Snow.<br />

On the slopes of her soft-thighs<br />

my fingers slowly skied down-wise.<br />

Upon the peaks of her breasts<br />

my climbing lips came to rest.<br />

She’d chosen the nickname Snow<br />

as it’s cooler the more North you go.<br />


The libertine lady,<br />

she pats her pet.<br />

She has him in<br />

her web, her net.<br />

There are some<br />

who only feel free<br />

when somebody else<br />

is down on bent-knee.<br />



You carry a hump this life-long day,<br />

and in your head are clappers that<br />

clang.<br />

The bells !! The bells !! They have their<br />

way.<br />

You feel like the Hunchback of Notre-<br />

Dame.<br />


A child of the love-in 60s;<br />

a flower with a record-deck;<br />

chanced her arm with another needle<br />

and became a 70s butterfly wreck.<br />


You’re into your twittering-twilight<br />

with your lonely-sparrow-fears.<br />

The thieving magpie will leave night,<br />

stealing away all your years.<br />

Yes a secret I’ll disclose.<br />

I was on top of the world<br />

One thing was for sure - it was just as hot.<br />

On his 19 hour flight from Los Angeles,<br />

Carl had been wondering what to expect<br />

when he arrived in Pattaya. Having read<br />

the guide books and watched a few videos<br />

posted on the internet, he knew he was going to be in for<br />

a culture shock. At least the blast of hot air that welcomed<br />

him as he stepped out of the aircraft was the same as he<br />

remembered it. As the taxi neared his destination he could<br />

see the hotels and apartment blocks reaching skyward. It<br />

seemed to Carl that there<br />

would be little prospect<br />

of anything being left to<br />

rekindle his memories.<br />

But despite this realisation<br />

that perhaps his trip might<br />

not fulfill all of his expectations,<br />

he was glad he<br />

was there. He’d promised<br />

himself many years ago<br />

that he would return.<br />

His first and only<br />

other time in Pattaya had<br />

been 43 years earlier. He<br />

had been drafted into the<br />

US Marine Corps when<br />

he reached the age that<br />

required young men to<br />

partake in the war that<br />

his country was waging<br />

in south east Asia. At the<br />

time he had no opinion<br />

one way or the other as to<br />

the righteousness of the<br />

One Good Turn...<br />

conflict. He was not long out of high school and knew little<br />

of the communist cause in that part of the world or why his<br />

country felt that they should take it upon themselves to go to<br />

war. He figured that he would do his bit, see a few things that<br />

he wouldn’t otherwise, and be welcomed back home a hero<br />

when his tour of duty was over. The fact that events didn’t<br />

turn out like that had bothered him since, but what’s done is<br />

done and this vacation would go a long way to closing the<br />

chapter in his life which he felt must be done before his time<br />

was up.<br />

He’d been sent to Pattaya not long after it had first<br />

become popular as an R &<br />

R destination for American<br />

GI’s. His stay was an<br />

enforced one after he had<br />

been wounded in the<br />

battle for Hue during the<br />

Tet offensive of 1968. His<br />

only piece of good fortune<br />

during the incident was that<br />

a member of his platoon<br />

had risked his own life to<br />

drag him to safety before<br />

the mortars finished off the<br />

troops that were unable to<br />

get back. Carl remembered<br />

vividly the moment his<br />

saviour was standing over<br />

him, looking deep into his<br />

eyes as if to see if there was<br />

life there. He remembered<br />

looking back into the steelyblue<br />

eyes of the marine with<br />

enough determination to<br />

persuade him that saving<br />

Carl was worth the risk.<br />

Page 56 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

It was a month later that Carl found himself in Pattaya.<br />

He had been very lucky. His left femur had been fractured<br />

and the shrapnel which had penetrated his abdomen had<br />

avoided his vital organs. After a blood transfusion and having<br />

his leg put in plaster, Carl was evacuated to Pattaya. It looked<br />

like the conflict had some way to go yet, and the Military had<br />

decided that troops in Carl’s situation may well be called upon<br />

to return to combat once they were fit enough to do so. He<br />

was staying in one of a number of small, ramshackle beachfront<br />

guesthouses that had sprung up seemingly overnight to<br />

meet the needs of the ever increasing numbers of US servicemen<br />

who had the opportunity to escape the front line one<br />

way or another. Carl had been there for a week or so and he<br />

was out on his daily walk to the bamboo shack which passed<br />

as the local bar at the end of the beach. Even though he was<br />

still using crutches and was advised that the exercise would<br />

help him recover his mobility, the serenity of the place and<br />

the smiling faces of the locals meant he would have done it<br />

anyway.<br />

He stopped at the bar and ordered a beer. As he took a<br />

satisfying swig from the ice cold bottle, a voice at the other<br />

end of the bar said<br />

“Are these the lengths we have to go to just to get a cold<br />

beer and a holiday?” Carl turned to see the soldier who had<br />

saved his life. He had been shot a week later and although<br />

not as badly wounded as Carl, he’d been sent to Pattaya to<br />

recuperate. His name was Gene. After talking about the<br />

latest on the war, they proceeded to empty the ice box of its<br />

beer bottles and in the course of doing so, strengthened a<br />

bond that only exists between men flung together by circumstances<br />

such as theirs. The two men met every day for the<br />

time that their respective stays in Pattaya overlapped. They<br />

knew that they were likely to be assigned to different units<br />

when they returned to the battlefield, so before parting they<br />

exchanged addresses and promised to meet up once the war<br />

was over. As Gene was driven away to return to Vietnam, Carl<br />

remembered shouting “I owe you one Gene!”<br />

That was the last they saw of each other. Carl never<br />

fully recovered and was sent back to the USA. His previous<br />

thoughts of being welcomed back as a hero were immediately<br />

shattered as the casualties were mounting and the anti-war<br />

movement was just taking off. He tried to trace Gene. The<br />

Army said he’d seen out his tour and had left the military. Carl<br />

wrote to the only address he had for Gene, but never received<br />

a reply. This trip to Pattaya was in a way his farewell to the<br />

man who saved his life. If he couldn’t say it face to face, at<br />

least he go to the place he’d last seen the man who had given<br />

him 43 years of life he would not have otherwise had.<br />

The Pattaya of the 1960’s was vastly different to what<br />

now confronted Carl. The peace and quiet had been lost to<br />

incessant traffic noise and blaring music. What had once<br />

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:<br />


been a tropical idyll had become a brash, smelly, congested<br />

metropolis. Be that as it may, Carl wasn’t there for a holiday<br />

- he was there to remember a friend. He soon realised that<br />

searching for the location of the bar on the beach was going<br />

to be fruitless. He remembered it was at the southern end<br />

of the beach, close to an old wooden jetty. He decided that<br />

the modern pier at the northern end of Walking Street was as<br />

near as he was going to get and he would go out to the bar<br />

at the end of the pier, buy two bottles of beer, drink one, and<br />

have a few minutes of silent reflection.<br />

On his last day in Pattaya Carl duly paid homage to<br />

his friend as planned. He was making his way back to his<br />

hotel when what should have been an uneventful end to<br />

his trip, was dramatically interrupted. He was just about to<br />

cross Beach Road, when the Thai lady walking in front of him<br />

tripped on the kerb and fell out into the oncoming traffic.<br />

Carl instinctively grabbed her by her shoulders as she was falling,<br />

and pushed her back towards the pavement, thus saving<br />

her from certain serious injury. In the process, the impetus<br />

caused him to fall in the road and he was struck by a passing<br />

taxi. Fortunately it was a glancing blow and after some onthe-spot<br />

first aid, Carl felt OK. The lady concerned had stayed<br />

to make sure that Carl was not badly hurt.<br />

She said that she lived nearby, and felt that the least she<br />

could do would be to offer him a cup of tea or coffee and the<br />

chance to sit down for a while as he was still clearly shaken.<br />

Carl accepted and five minutes later they entered her second<br />

floor apartment in a nearby Soi. As he sat in the kitchen, Carl<br />

observed his surroundings. He glanced at some photos on<br />

the wall and caught his breath.<br />

The lady saw this reaction and asked him what was the<br />

matter. Looking down at Carl from a Polaroid photo pinned<br />

to the wall was Gene. Older - but those piercing blue eyes<br />

were unmistakable. “You know this man?” the woman asked.<br />

Carl explained the connection and the reason for his visit to<br />

Pattaya. The woman for her part, went on to tell Carl that she<br />

had met Gene 35 years ago when he came to Pattaya, they<br />

married and he never returned to America. She had worked<br />

there as a young girl when the town was just beginning<br />

to grow. He’d said when they first met that the place held<br />

memories for him but had never elaborated. Now she knew<br />

why and was glad. Gene had died five years earlier.<br />

The significance of the day’s events had not been lost on<br />

Gene’s wife. “My husband saved your life, and now you save<br />

mine”. Carl felt a sense of contentment as he remembered<br />

his last words to Gene as they parted all those years ago. His<br />

debt was paid<br />

Who Do You Contact for Financial<br />

Over the years I have written many articles on the<br />

above subject.<br />

Advice Offshore ?<br />

The main thrust has always been to try and find<br />

a long established financial adviser who has a few<br />

attributes that make it conducive for you to do business with him.<br />

When you meet a broker canvassing for your business here<br />

are a few questions you should put to him to help determine if he is<br />

right for you.<br />

How long have you been in the business and who have you<br />

worked with? If he’s had 20 years experience selling double glazing<br />

and two pushing investments then perhaps you should look further.<br />

What basic financial qualifications do you have and where<br />

were they obtained?<br />

All is not lost with this individual if he has no certificates as you<br />

may consider that the biggest rouges in financial history have been<br />

dripping in financial qualifications.<br />

However in reality if your potential broker does not have a<br />

basic financial planning qualification it may be best that you keep<br />

looking.<br />

In a non regulated environment like Thailand it is very important<br />

that your adviser has a base here, owns property here and<br />

perhaps has a wife and child here.<br />

The main reason for this is self evident. If your broker has no<br />

commitment to Thailand what level of service do you really expect<br />

after he has been paid his commission.<br />

Try also and avoid drunks. Yes they operate here and despite<br />

the confidentiality of offshore investing it is not much good when<br />

your broker gets drunk. What do they say about a drunk can never<br />

keep a secret?<br />

The most obvious thing never to do is give any money to a<br />

broker here. If you do then no one will sympathise with you when<br />

you lose it all.<br />

Some financial advice from David Thrifty<br />

I have always cautioned against using International banks<br />

mainly because the only time they will want to meet up with<br />

you is when you have more money to invest.<br />

But now comes the news that HSBC has been fined 10.5<br />

million pounds for miss-selling investment bonds to elderly<br />

people in care. HSBC will pay 29 million compensation and said<br />

it was “profoundly sorry”<br />

The problem for HSBC is that they made more in commission<br />

from selling these bonds to people with a couple of years<br />

to live than the fine that has been imposed.<br />

Heres how their scam worked.<br />

Elderly customers paid a 5% up front charge for the investments<br />

followed by 1% a year.<br />

Average investment size was 115,000 and many of the<br />

elderly were reliant on this to pay their care bills<br />

They were recommending that people invest in these<br />

products for at least five years. However because many had a<br />

life expectancy of less than five years they started to withdraw<br />

from the investments sooner than expected.<br />

The combination of withdrawals and charges meant that<br />

capital was eaten away quicker than should have been the case<br />

if the investments had been sold properly.<br />

The bank then made the following statement.<br />

“This should not have happened and I am profoundly<br />

sorry that it did. We have high values here at HSBC and this<br />

runs contrary to everything that we stand for. That is why when<br />

we suspected that everything was not right we took action”<br />

That is all very well of course but it is hard to stomach that<br />

a company which globally reported pre tax profits of 11 Billion<br />

dollars for the first six months of 2011 finished the year being<br />

fined for ripping off pensioners getting ready to die.<br />

Page 58 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

Is it any wonder the Occupy Wall Street protestors are out on<br />

the street?<br />

And there not the only bank in the rip off business.<br />

Coutts bankers to the Queen fined 6.3 million sterling for<br />

selling AIG bonds as low risk.<br />

Credit Susisse fined 5.95 million sterling for advice failures<br />

when selling complex financial products.<br />

The problem for me is that when any investment company<br />

cheats its clients some of the bad publicity rubs off on all brokers<br />

including myself who has tried to be honest with our clients over<br />

the past fifteen years here in Thailand.<br />

The “High Standards” professed by HSBC have always been<br />

endemic within our brokerage. The difference is that we practice<br />

them.<br />

Amy Winehouse - Lioness: Hidden Treasures<br />

Verdict: 7/10<br />

When celebrities die young, there<br />

is a tendency to re-hash any<br />

unreleased material and offer it<br />

to fans. After Tupac was gunned<br />

down, we had every line he’d ever<br />

recorded re-mixed and somehow made into a song.<br />

When Michael Jackson died songs that didn’t quite<br />

do him justice suddenly ended up on new albums.<br />

However, with Amy Winehouse things are<br />

thankfully very different. Before she died of alcohol<br />

poisoning earlier this year, she had already recorded<br />

the vast majority of what was going to be her third<br />

album. Tragically, she never got to hear it completely<br />

finished, but there was enough there for producers<br />

to work on.<br />

Lioness: Hidden Treasure is a collection of a<br />

dozen completely new tracks or new versions, with a<br />

couple of cover versions thrown in.<br />

Producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi have<br />

done an incredible job of preserving the brilliance of<br />

Winehouse’s vocals and creating something that she<br />

would have been proud of.<br />

Hearing Winehouse sing certain lines is now of<br />

course filled with irony and pathos, but even if she<br />

had lived, the songs would have been poignant and<br />

memorable.<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

The Sixties’ feel is<br />

still there, notably on lead<br />

single ‘Our Day Will Come’,<br />

which was first recorded<br />

by Ruby and The Romantics<br />

This isn’t simply<br />

Winehouse’s third album<br />

though, here there are<br />

even tracks predate her<br />

2003 debut album. ‘The<br />

Girl from Ipanema’ is<br />

given a jazzy flavor here,<br />

while other brilliant covers<br />

include The Shirelles’<br />

‘Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?’ and The Zuton’s ‘Valerie’.<br />

Of the original songs here, ‘Halftime’ is a decade old but sounds fresh and<br />

soulful thanks to Winehouse’s timeless vocals.<br />

Some duets are interesting, who would have thought that ‘Smoke’ filled<br />

with a rap from Nas would work, or that her last studio recording with veteran<br />

singer Tony Bennett would be so good. But it is: Bennett and Winehouse’s<br />

Body and Soul is an old jazz track that oozes class.<br />

Winehouse would never have released an album like this, the older tracks<br />

are clearly there to make up for a vacuum of new material, but despite this<br />

anything new from Winehouse is a bonus. She may have messed up her glorious<br />

talent but what she did do in her short career will last for years.<br />

Anthony Hamilton - Back to Love<br />

Verdict: 8/10<br />

Anthony Hamilton (the singer, not the snooker star) has one hell<br />

of a soul voice. His last album The Point of it All was pretty impressive,<br />

but Back to Love easily surpasses it.<br />

With a production team that includes Kenny “Babyface”<br />

Edmonds, Salaam Remi and Kelvin Wooten, you’d expect it to sound slick, and<br />

it doesn’t disappoint.<br />

Grammy-award winning Hamilton simply has a voice that sounds like<br />

honey, and the first single ‘Woo’ is a great example of this. There are a good<br />

range of uptempo tracks for dance fans and some more slower, reflective<br />

numbers. The r’n’b style is contemporary but with a few hints of the old school<br />

Page 60 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

sound, such as the excellent opener ‘Mad’, a funky collection of<br />

horns, guitar and harmonica.<br />

‘Who’s Lovin You’ is a charming lament about unrequited love<br />

that while the duet with Keri Hilson, ‘Never Let Go’ works surprisingly<br />

well despite her more urban feel.<br />

If you get hold of the deluxe version, you can also enjoy ‘More<br />

Than Enough’, where Hamilton and his band let loose that sees<br />

them jam superbly.<br />

If you like true soul music, then Hamilton is just about the<br />

best out there at what he does.<br />

Anthony Hamilton is going to become a father again. His wife Tarsha<br />

is pregnant again. “Well, since we’re here, yes. I just found out.Hopefully<br />

this one’s a girl”, the R & B singer announced during an appearance on Live! With Kelly on Tuesday (December 13).<br />

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<br />

sons from previous relationships: Anthony, 21, Romero, 19 and Tristan, 14.<br />

Kelly Rowland - Here I Am<br />

Verdict: 6/10<br />

Kelly Rowland has done a pretty good job of living in<br />

the shadow of Beyonce. While her former Destiny’s<br />

Child colleague has gone on to become a global<br />

superstar, Rowland has made a solid niche for herself<br />

as a dance-techno star.<br />

Aside from having the best set of pins in Destiny’s Child,<br />

Rowland was also a fine singer.<br />

She’s already had eight top 10 songs in the UK and landed a<br />

spot as a judge on talent shows. ‘Here I Am’ doesn’t quite live up<br />

to her previous efforts, though.<br />

While on the X Factor she comes across as being ballsy and<br />

outgoing, the songs here rather lack power and effect. The album<br />

begins with mid-tempo tracks overloaded with synth sounds that<br />

have the effect of watering down the songs. Some numbers work<br />

well, we quite like ‘I’m Dat Chick’, but ultimately you end up wondering<br />

if she really has the attitude to match the lyrics. Beyonce<br />

had no bother throwing aside her Christian beliefs to cultivate a<br />

raunchy, sexual image, but with Rowland you wonder if she’s just<br />

a bit too nice to do that convincingly.<br />

The idea of getting Lil Wayne to help out is therefore in-<br />

spired as it does add<br />

some punch, and<br />

his appearance lifts<br />

things well on ‘Motivation’.<br />

The second<br />

half of the album is<br />

far more interesting.<br />

Summer hit ‘What<br />

a Feeling?’ ticks all<br />

the right boxes and<br />

a few collaborations<br />

with DJ extraordinaire<br />

David Guetta<br />

can’t fail to work.<br />

Single ‘Down<br />

For Whatever’ does a<br />

good job of persuading<br />

us that Rowland<br />

really is a sex kitten, while ‘Whatever’ is far more urban. Rowland<br />

wisely has done a good job of trying to copy Beyonce, and with a<br />

few stronger dance tracks at the start this really would have been<br />

the CD to push her career on.<br />

On to the book!<br />

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the novel:<br />

“I would kill everyone in this room for a drop of sweet beer.”<br />

– Homer Simpson<br />

My British friends will appreciate this one:<br />

“Give my people plenty of beer, good beer, and cheap beer,<br />

and you will have no revolution among them.”—Queen Victoria<br />

“Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.”<br />

– Benjamin Franklin<br />

From the illustrious Billy Carter (brother of former President of the<br />

United States Jimmy Carter)<br />

“Paintings are like a beer, only beer tastes good and it’s hard<br />

to stop drinking beer.” – Billy Carter<br />

Saved my best for last (gotta love that Homer Simpson):<br />

“A woman is a lot like beer. They smell good, they look good,<br />

and you’d step over your own mother to get one.” –<br />

Homer Simpson.<br />

Every year the Cobra Gold exercise which is a joint American-Thai<br />

military operation with other ASEAN countries sending along troops<br />

as well—descends on Pattaya. What a sight it is with thousands of<br />

American sailors coming ashore for R&R. I think the focus is definitely<br />

not on Rest! They’ve been at sea for months. They have lots of cash by<br />

local standards, wild dreams and raging hormones. The Pattaya Foreign<br />

Walking Street is crawling with handsome, fit, young and clueless<br />

American military personnel with wads of cash burning a hole in their<br />

pocket. Sometimes a marine with too many beers can be made an offer<br />

that is too good to refuse. That, of course, violates the Wisdom of Beer.<br />

Never let the beer substitute for thinking through a plan. One bright<br />

Marine accepts an offer too good to be true, $500 for taking a piss on the<br />

expensive car pointed out by a beautiful Russian escort. Unfortunately<br />

that car happens to be owned by the local Mafia chief’s son!<br />

a member of the heist gang. Wonder why the bird just falls<br />

over every night? Drinking too much beer like the inhabitants<br />

of the bar?<br />

There is an ancient, secret Chinese formula for beer and<br />

an old woman who is hot on the heels of decoding the formula.<br />

To add more twists to the plot there is the godfather’s son and<br />

heir apparent who falls in love with a katoey and putting in<br />

question the fate of passing (in an unbroken line) the secret<br />

beer formula from father to son. How could it pass to a son<br />

who won’t have any children to pass it on to next? When their<br />

lives become entangled in the streets and bars of Pattaya, the<br />

characters dig deep down to find that there is indeed wisdom<br />

to be found in beer.<br />

Christopher continually pokes fun at the different characteristics<br />

of the main characters - the Russians from escort girl<br />

to arms dealer, geriatric foreign police volunteers, Thai male<br />

hair and mobile phone fashions, the trials, tribulations and<br />

double cross (maybe by design) in the fixing of the results of<br />

a katoey beauty contest, the American cast – a bar owner, the<br />

Marines and Obama’s US Navy ‘son’ (from the same Kenyan<br />

village) and the Tweeting Officer in the mix.<br />

But why does the macaw fall off its perch nightly? Behind<br />

all is an ancient, secret Chinese formula for ‘hell beer’ joining the<br />

blend of ingredients stirred into this crime caper. The characters<br />

lives become entangled in the streets and bars of Pattaya, and<br />

they dig deep to find that there is indeed wisdom to be found<br />

in beer. Or is the wisdom brought out by the effects of the beer?<br />

To post or not to post…<br />

It’s normal in Thai society for those of a<br />

lower status to show respect to those higher<br />

up the ladder. That can sometimes make it<br />

tricky for reporters to ask the questions that<br />

need to be asked. Channel 7 reporter Somjit<br />

Navakruasunthorn thankfully suffers from no<br />

such deference and normally wades in where<br />

others fear to tread.<br />

She used to give Abhisit a hard time,<br />

and rightly so, but usually the Democrat<br />

leader would stand his ground and give an<br />

answer.<br />

When she tried the same type of questions<br />

on Prime Minister Yingluck though,<br />

things soon turned nasty. Yingluck simply<br />

walked off when Somjit asked her something<br />

about how to get rich in just four years. OK,<br />

it’s a sarcastic type of question but one that<br />

Yingluck could have easily batted away.<br />

The response from Yingluck supporters<br />

was hostile and one email was created<br />

with Somjit’s picture. The message, along<br />

with Somjit’s image, was said to have been<br />

circulated by Porntip Paksanont, chief of the<br />

Petchaburi branch of the United Front for<br />

Democracy against Dictatorship.<br />

The email said: “This is the face of the<br />

reporter who caused Prime Minister (Yingluck)<br />

to walk away. She is a reporter with<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

Channel 7. Remember her face so if she is seen anywhere, please ‘take care’<br />

of her”.<br />

The phrase ‘take care of her’ has similar to connotations to hard man<br />

Vinnie Jones asking you to ‘come outside for a little chat’.<br />

Suitably upset, Somjit filed a complaint with the local police. After all,<br />

we were all warned not to share or like controversial content on Facebook<br />

the other week, so surely she had a case?<br />

Seems not. The police decided there was no case to answer as Ms Porntip<br />

did not write the email, she only passed it on to others.<br />

Turns out that to ‘take care of’ someone also isn’t threatening at all. And<br />

anyway, the police<br />

couldn’t trace the<br />

original writer of the<br />

email.<br />

IP addresses are awfully<br />

hard to get hold of, as well<br />

know. Just ask that Thai-American<br />

guy who was jailed for two<br />

years last week for passing<br />

on an offensive email that he<br />

hadn’t written.<br />

North Korea leader died<br />

Now that North Korean<br />

leader Kim Jong-il has died, the<br />

future of his country hangs in<br />

the balance.<br />

The mystery surrounding<br />

the life of Kim Jong-il has<br />

left 28-year-old Kim Jong-un<br />

in charge of this nuclear state.<br />

And that’s bloody worrying.<br />

The rest of the world knows<br />

next to nothing about North<br />

Korea’s new leader. We’re not<br />

even sure he’s 28. He went to<br />

school in Switzerland but was<br />

bussed in and out of a compound,<br />

so probably knows<br />

little or nothing about Western<br />

ways.<br />

This is like hiring a 12year-old<br />

and asking him to<br />

form US strategy for Afghanistan.<br />

Kim Jong-un will likely<br />

struggle to make his mark as<br />

those around him try to pull<br />

Page 64 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

the strings. Reform is unlikely, as those shadowy<br />

figures would be out of a job and be<br />

accountable for the starvation and poverty<br />

that has plagued their country for the past<br />

few years.<br />

Of course, other countries will now<br />

want to court North Korea for their own<br />

reasons: the US and China will be at the front<br />

offering all sorts of sweeteners to do as they<br />

wish.<br />

If the new chap is anything like his dad,<br />

it will certainly be a tense time. Kim Jong-il<br />

was the world’s only hereditary communist<br />

ruler and was said to be behind huge human<br />

rights abuses. While South Korea made<br />

him out to be a vain, playboy figure with<br />

Amy Winehouse-style bouffant hairstyle, the truth was even<br />

odder. He had live lobsters air-lifted to his train on a daily<br />

basis, which he then devoured with silver chopsticks. He was<br />

known to like his drink, and was spotted downing 10 glasses<br />

of wine during a 2000 summit with former South Korean<br />

President Kim Dae-jung.<br />

On the other hand, he had a god-like image in his homeland.<br />

The official story says he was born in a log cabin, with a<br />

double rainbow and glittering star heralding his birth.<br />

Rumours never stopped coming though. A Japanese<br />

magazine reckoned that he actually died in 2003 and body<br />

doubles were playing his part. His love of movies and basketball<br />

was legendary and he is said to have one of the private<br />

collection of movies of anyone in the world.<br />

Of course, those in North Korea have no idea about<br />

any of this as their regime allows for no freedom of expression<br />

or debate. We don’t even know how or when he died,<br />

for instance. Change is definitely coming to North Korea, but<br />

whether it will be for the better or worse is anyone’s guess.<br />

John owned a very successful bar in Pattaya which he had designed<br />

and built himself. His wife was a local lady<br />

whose savvy in the day-to-day operation of the bar<br />

was invaluable. With her as manager, it seemed the<br />

perfect partnership. John provided all the capital<br />

investment plus many friends who became regular<br />

customers. These friends would bring their own<br />

friends along and his clientele increased to numbers<br />

which were the envy of other businesses in the area.<br />

When John didn’t show up at his bar one<br />

night, it was not a surprise because it was known<br />

John had a drinking problem and it was only a matter<br />

of time before it would take its toll on his health.<br />

When he still hadn’t turned up after a week, his<br />

friends became concerned. They tried calling him<br />

but his mobile seemed to be always switched off.<br />

The consensus was, if he was resting and recuperating,<br />

he turned it off so as not to be disturbed. There<br />

was no real panic until three weeks later when one<br />

friend began calling his home number. Each time, the calls either rang<br />

out or John’s wife answered to say he was sleeping.<br />

John’s absence was having an effect on the bar. Many of his<br />

friends would look in and, not seeing him sitting on his usual stool,<br />

head off somewhere else. The popular 4-piece band, which played<br />

nightly had quit and those customers who came to enjoy their music<br />

had followed shortly after. The cashier quit, along with three other<br />

popular and hardworking members of staff. In only a few short weeks,<br />

the bar went from catering to a full house each night to entertaining<br />

merely a handful of punters.<br />

John and his wife lived about 20 kilometres out of town. When<br />

two of his concerned mates paid him a visit, his wife greeted them at<br />

the door saying he was sleeping and could not be disturbed. They<br />

insisted upon seeing him. Stretched out on his bed with his eyes open,<br />

they found him pale and incoherent. He did not recognize them and<br />

appeared to be in a terrible state. It was obvious his malady was not<br />

simply the result of alcoholism.<br />

A few days later they headed off to the bar where John’s ex-band<br />

was now resident. The lads in the band told them that yes, they had<br />

quit, but they were forced to. After John took ill, his wife told them she<br />

no longer required the keyboard player and their salary would be cut<br />

by 25%. She cited the downturn in profits as the reason. To the band<br />

members this was unacceptable, so they reluctantly quit.<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

Bitter Medicine<br />

John’s ex-cashier was also working in that<br />

bar and she explained she was also forced to quit<br />

because John’s wife had accused her of stealing,<br />

something which she vehemently denied. She also<br />

suggested John’s wife was evil and was deliberately<br />

setting out to destroy the bar. To those listening,<br />

that did not really make a lot of sense. The bar provided<br />

a good income for both John and his wife so<br />

why would she want to stop the money from rolling<br />

in? The cashier did not know but warned them to<br />

be very careful about tangling with his wife.<br />

Three friends went back to visit John two<br />

days later. His wife reluctantly let them in and this<br />

time they found John more responsive and coherent.<br />

They told him about trying to call him many<br />

times but his phone was switched off. When they<br />

started calling on the landline, they were told he<br />

was asleep. John said whenever he asked his wife<br />

if anyone had called she said no. She told him his<br />

friends did not really care about him and to forget them. He never<br />

really believed her but was in no position to do anything about it.<br />

Someone then noticed a small cup of brownish liquid on John’s bedside<br />

table. John said it was his medicine made by priests from special<br />

herbs. His wife told him to take it twice a day. As he lifted the cup to<br />

his mouth, one friend snatched it from his hand and tipped the contents<br />

into a nearby planter. He told John to stop taking it but not to<br />

let his wife know. John seemed to understand. He confided that he<br />

always seemed to feel worse immediately after downing the potion.<br />

One month later, John was no longer bed-ridden and met up<br />

with a mate at a restaurant in town. John looked bright and healthy,<br />

ordering a soda water because he was no longer on the booze. He<br />

said he had spent his last month of recovery untangling such a web<br />

of intrigue it made Hollywood suspense thrillers seem tame. Everything<br />

that happened had been part of a cunning scheme in which<br />

his wife was chief puppeteer.<br />

His wife had two friends who owned a bar of similar size but<br />

nowhere near as popular as John’s. Their lease was about to expire<br />

and the landowner informed them it would not be renewed because<br />

their bar and the surrounding area had been earmarked as the site<br />

of a new hotel. They needed new premises and John’s bar would be<br />

perfect. Conspiring with John’s wife, they offered her a half share in<br />

a new ‘super bar’ made by the merger of John’s place and their own,<br />

if they could buy John’s at a cheap price. The trouble was that John<br />

owned the bar through a registered company and his wife could not<br />

sell it without his signature. Besides that, the fully operational and<br />

Page 66 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

profitable bar with a long-term lease would be very expensive even<br />

if John could be persuaded to sell. She knew John would give her<br />

half the proceeds of the sale but that was a pittance compared with<br />

the money generated from her silent partnership in the new management<br />

team.<br />

The first stage was to keep him away from the bar and his<br />

friends. She knew as long as he was in the picture, the bar would<br />

continue to run profitably. She switched off and hid his mobile<br />

phone and easily fended off phone calls made to the house. She<br />

began feeding him the brown concoction which, in small doses,<br />

caused drowsiness with a narcotic effect but taken over a longer<br />

period of time, would kill him. That was her two-pronged attack. If<br />

he could be persuaded to sell the business to her friends at a ridiculously<br />

cheap price, she would stop administering the ‘medicine’. If he<br />

refused, his death could easily be explained as the result of chronic<br />

alcoholism and the bar would pass into her hands. She felt she could<br />

not lose.<br />

The second part of her plan was to run the business into the<br />

ground financially. When weekly takings kept declining, she could<br />

explain to John that since he was no longer well the bar was losing<br />

money. It would be best to sell up before they went broke. She<br />

would talk him into accepting the best offer, which naturally would<br />

come from her co-conspirators. To do it, she got rid of the cashier<br />

who had been John’s friend for years and replaced her with her own<br />

crony who would adjust the figures as directed. She forced an intolerable<br />

situation upon the band knowing they would quit and sacked<br />

the three most popular and efficient members of staff. Any staff<br />

member who quit was not replaced. At one point, she was down to<br />

three serving staff which, for a large bar, was totally inadequate.<br />

Her plan unravelled once John stopped taking the potion. His<br />

health improved daily but he did not let her know, pretending to be<br />

still following her prescription. The potted plant beside his window<br />

where he had been disposing of the liquid had withered and died.<br />

John could not believe the lengths his wife would go to for<br />

sheer greed. The final question was what he was going to do about<br />

it. If they wanted his bar so badly that they would consider murder,<br />

then they may try again and, next time, might be successful. He<br />

decided it was not worth it. In any case, he had had enough and<br />

wanted out of the bar business altogether. John said he was going<br />

to give them what they wanted. He was going to sell them the bar<br />

– but at his price, not theirs.<br />

What about his wife? What action was he going to take now he<br />

had evidence of her attempt to murder him? None. He was advised<br />

that, should he make any trouble for her, she had enough money<br />

and contacts to ensure he never testified. He did not want to spend<br />

the rest of his life looking over his shoulder. He negotiated with his<br />

bitter wife and she agreed to buy him out of his half of their beautiful<br />

home. After the sale of the bar went through, he would give her half<br />

the proceeds before heading back to the UK to retire.<br />

Countrywide specialised in sub-prime mortgages, which<br />

Malaysia opens banking system<br />

Malaysia will allow more foreign investment in the banking<br />

sector to try and boost economic growth.<br />

The government will be more flexible when it comes to<br />

permitting foreigners to hold stakes in banks and will also issue<br />

banking licences to foreign firms.<br />

Malaysia’s central bank said the cap on foreign ownership<br />

would depend on the financial profile of the investor.<br />

Foreign ownership of commercial banks in Malaysia is<br />

capped at 30% currently.<br />

Malaysia is aiming to<br />

become a fully developed<br />

economy by 2020 and the<br />

financial sector is expected<br />

to play a key role in<br />

helping it to achieve that.<br />

The sector is expected<br />

to grow at an annual<br />

rate of 8% to 11% in the<br />

current decade.<br />

Authorities have<br />

already granted licences<br />

to some foreign banks,<br />

including BNP Paribas and National Bank of Abu Dhabi, to operate<br />

in Malaysia.<br />

Analysts said that changes to the ownership rules will help<br />

boost growth even further.<br />

One of the fastest growing areas is Islamic finance. Overseas<br />

investors are currently allowed to hold up to a 70% stake in<br />

Islamic and investment banks.<br />

The central bank plans to bring in new products and offer<br />

new Islamic banking licences to help sustain the momentum.<br />

That’s in sharp contrast to Thailand, where foreign banks are<br />

virtually unknown.<br />

HTC loses patent fight<br />

Taiwanese mobile-phone maker HTC has lost a major US<br />

patent court case with Apple.<br />

Commission decided that<br />

HTC infringed one patent<br />

held by the US technology<br />

giant.<br />

Any HTC phones using<br />

the technology covered by<br />

Page 68 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

the patent will be banned from sale in the US from April 19, 2012.<br />

Apple is fighting several legal battles over technology rights,<br />

and had first claimed that HTC was ignoring 10 patents.<br />

That means HTC was able to claim something of a victory as<br />

it was only found guilty of breaking on patent.<br />

HTC said the patent they broke related to a small user-interface<br />

feature known as “data tapping”, which allowed users to<br />

grab embedded information, such as a phone number. HTC will<br />

completely remove it from all their phones and claimed it would<br />

mean minimal disruption to their business in the US.<br />

As the world’s fourth-largest smartphone maker, HTC uses<br />

Google’s Android operating system on most of its smartphones,<br />

though it has now launched a series of phones using Microsoft’s<br />

Windows Phone 7 software.<br />

But the second quarter was revised down from 0.1% growth to<br />

There were warnings that the 0.6 per cent growth rate was<br />

Flooding at the end of 2011 meant tourist numbers were<br />

heavily down. Arrivals up to November were 17 million, compared<br />

with 16 million in 2010, so tourist bosses are hopeful<br />

numbers will soon bounce back.<br />

For, 2012, the estimated international arrivals should be<br />

The Argument Arises - Is Tendulkar<br />

better than Bradman<br />

As Indian superstar Sachin Tendulkar (Pictured) made<br />

his way Down Under for yet another Test series,<br />

arguably his last in Australia, someone somewhere<br />

decided it was worth attempting to revive a dead<br />

horse by trying to claim the Indian champion might<br />

now be a greater batsman than Don Bradman.<br />

The reason -the hook- was that Tendulkar was on the verge of<br />

scoring his 100th international century, a feat never before accomplished.<br />

This is mainly because there was no such creature as One Day<br />

Internationals when people like Bradman,<br />

Walter Hammond, Len Hutton and Jack<br />

Hobbs were in their prime.<br />

Bradman himself was known to be<br />

a huge fan of Tendulkar’s, stating publicly<br />

that the Indian batsman played much like<br />

himself. Tendulkar might arguably be the<br />

closest incarnation of Don Bradman, but<br />

by no stretch of the imagination could he<br />

really be classed in the same way.<br />

Statistically, Bradman is possibly<br />

the most dominant sporting figure of<br />

the twentieth century. In no other sport<br />

has one person been so all-conquering<br />

as Bradman. His Test batting average of<br />

99.94 is 39.21 runs better than the next<br />

nearest batsman of all time. That man is England’s opener Herbert<br />

Sutcliffe whose average of 60.73 from 54 Tests (Bradman played 52) is<br />

the second-best of any international player with more than 20 Tests to<br />

his credit. The difference in averages equates to a massive 39 percent.<br />

Thinking across other sports, heavyweight boxing champion<br />

Rocky Marciano dominated his time in the square ring with an unbeaten<br />

string of 49 victories. Yet many would claim Muhammad Ali<br />

was greater. Ali was undefeated at his first 37 bouts before<br />

being forced out of boxing for three years.<br />

Bradman lost six years of his career due to the Second<br />

World War, and did not play a Test match from 1938<br />

until 1946, that is, from the age of 30 to 38. How many Test<br />

matches did he miss in that time? Just how many centuries<br />

would he have scored? The answer, of course, is completely<br />

unknown. That he came back in 1946 and plundered 187, 234<br />

and 79 in his first three innings is testament to his brilliance<br />

and suggests he may well have finished his Test career with<br />

many more than his-then record of<br />

29 centuries.<br />

By way of comparison, England<br />

batsman Walter Hammond<br />

(who finished his Test career with<br />

22 centuries and an average of<br />

58.45) also missed the Second<br />

World War years, playing his last<br />

match in 1939 and resuming<br />

against India in England in 1946.<br />

Five years older than Bradman, it<br />

would be fairer to look at Hammond’s<br />

record up to and including<br />

1939. He made 6,883 runs at 61.45<br />

to be the closest comparison with<br />

Bradman; and there were those in<br />

the 1930’s who attempted to make<br />

the case that Hammond was indeed superior.<br />

Bradman remains only one of four men to have scored<br />

a century before lunch on the first day of a Test match. He<br />

remains the only batsman to have scored more than 300 runs<br />

in a single day. Tendulkar, despite his truckload of Test tons,<br />

has never gone close to scoring 300 in an innings let alone a<br />

day. His highest Test score is 248.<br />

Page 74 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

The question is why was Bradman so good, that even<br />

today he completely dominates the batting landscape? Was it<br />

just freakish ability?<br />

In a foreword to Bradman Revisited, a 2008 book written<br />

by Tony Shillinglaw, the former England opener Geoff<br />

Boycott made a note of Bradman’s qualities and wrote ‘In 40<br />

years of playing, watching and commentating on cricket I<br />

have seen a number of great batsmen who possessed many<br />

of these qualities, yet all of them were only 50 to 60 per cent<br />

as good as the Don. So was there something else? Or was he<br />

just born special?’ Among those batsman is, of course, Sachin<br />

Tendulkar.<br />

Shillinglaw suggested Bradman developed a unique<br />

‘rotary’ method of preparing for a stroke and it was this which<br />

gave him a big mechanical advantage over other batsmen.<br />

Former great Greg Chappell agreed Bradman had found a<br />

way of lifting the bat and balancing himself in such a way as<br />

to give him an edge.<br />

Colin Cowdrey, the England opener and captain, once<br />

wrote of Bradman: ‘it was his mind that powered his success’.<br />

His mental toughness was noted by sports statistician<br />

Charles Davis, who suggested Bradman was as vulnerable to<br />

being dismissed as any other batsman until he had scored<br />

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:<br />


around 15 runs. Once he was set then his chances of being dismissed<br />

dropped to about one third of all other greats. Once Bradman<br />

reached 50 and from then until he made 150 he completely dominates<br />

the landscape. Davis suggested once Bradman got going he<br />

dominated bowlers mentally.<br />

Certainly, his record of 29 Test centuries and only 13 fifties bears<br />

testimony to this. In two of his half centuries Bradman was not out<br />

and therefore not able to go on to a hundred or more. So, of the 40<br />

other occasions he passed 50, he converted just over 72 percent into<br />

centuries.<br />

Hammond, prior to 1939, made 22 hundreds and 22 fifties. Of<br />

these, four of his half-tons were not out. Therefore, Hammond’s conversion<br />

rate of fifties into hundreds or more stands at 55 percent.<br />

Between the age of 20 (when Bradman’s career commenced)<br />

and 55 Tests later, Tendulkar’s performances show 20 centuries and<br />

18 fifties. Of the latter, only one was not out, so Tendulkar’s conversion<br />

rate stood at 54 percent.<br />

From statistical studies based on the bell curve, Charles Davis<br />

claimed only one in 200,000 Test cricketers should be as good as<br />

Bradman. If 50 new Test players were blooded each year it’s going to<br />

take about 6,000 years before we ever see another one like him.<br />

Suarez ridiculous race row<br />

OK, so Luis Suarez isn’t the best player to use as a shining<br />

example of how one should behave on a football field. But,<br />

come on,<br />

wasn’t the<br />

row over<br />

his supposedracial<br />

abuse<br />

of Man<br />

Utd’s Patrice<br />

Evra a<br />

tad overblown?<br />

In<br />

the highlytouchy<br />

corridors<br />

of the<br />

Football<br />

Association, any whiff of racism makes those old boys (all white,<br />

by the way) shudder. They worry that they’ll be accused of<br />

ignoring the issue if they do nothing, so they huff and puff and<br />

come out with all the felicitous platitudes.<br />

E-Mail: pattayatrader@pattayatrader.com<br />

To recap, Suarez offended Evra during a Liverpool-Man Utd<br />

match by apparently repeatedly using racist language. Evra is<br />

the only one who heard this. Evra said in his report that he didn’t<br />

think Suarez was a racist. Evra also once made up an over-the-top<br />

complaint about a Chelsea groundsman and was banned for four<br />

games as a result.<br />

This isn’t an Evra witch-hunt either, though. The main problem<br />

here was language. Suarez apparently used the word ‘negra’. You<br />

may well think that after four years playing in Europe Suarez should<br />

know that this was going to be inflammatory.<br />

However, it should also be noted that in Uruguay, such references<br />

to race are normal. Suarez, whose grandfather was black, is<br />

from a country where racial references are banded about without<br />

anybody taking offence.<br />

Obdulio Varela, a World Cup winner with Uruguay, was known<br />

as ‘El Negro Jefe’, or the black boss. In today’s squad there is Maxi<br />

Pereria, known as ‘El Mono’, or ‘the monkey’ while Alvaro Fernandez<br />

is called ‘El Flaco’, or ‘Mr Skinny’.<br />

It is hard, if not impossible, for the suits at the FA to accept<br />

that this is the norm in some societies. It may not be acceptable<br />

in our Westernised eyes, but that’s really our problem isn’t it, not<br />

theirs.<br />

Which brings us to Thailand. We should be thankful that no<br />

Thai footballers have ever got beyond Everton’s reserve squad,<br />

otherwise there’d be cries of ‘blackie’ and ‘darkie’ every time there<br />

was a corner kick.<br />

Not that Thais are racist, either. They just have different attitudes<br />

to skin colour. That attitude usually extends to Thais with<br />

darker skin, but sometimes it crosses over to those from different<br />

races, which is where things get slightly more complicated.<br />

Suarez’s case put the FA in a difficult position. It would be a<br />

brave FA to dismiss a charge of racism, in much the same way you<br />

don’t get many innocent verdicts in lese majeste cases. But the FA’s<br />

decision to ban him for eight games is excessive, and seems like<br />

they simply want to make a point.<br />

Keane to Put the Record Straight<br />

Manchester United legend Roy Keane has reignited a war of<br />

words with old boss Alex Ferguson.<br />

Page 76 For Advertising Call 038 716 390 (Thai) - 038 716 986 (Eng) Issue 136 - February 2012<br />

Keane didn’t hold back as he claimed Fergie unceremoniously<br />

dumped him when he was no longer of use.<br />

He even claimed United threatened him with legal action after<br />

a 2008 interview in which he hit out at the club’s handling of his exit<br />

from Old Trafford.<br />

Although he won seven Premier League titles while with Fergie,<br />

Keane’s relationship with the red-nosed one ended after he left the<br />

club in 2005.<br />

Keane criticised United’s youthful team after they crashed out of<br />

the Champions League at the group stages.<br />

Fergie, not unreasonably, questioned Keane’s managerial record<br />

which, so far, has been less than glorious.<br />

In programme notes, Ferguson said his side were getting criticised<br />

‘even from people we thought were perhaps on our side’.<br />

The most recent clash came when Keane revealed his surprise<br />

at Phil Jones saying he was ‘relaxed’ before the Euro defeat to Basel.<br />

Keane said: “I’d be getting hold of some of those lads, saying,<br />

‘You’d better buck up your ideas’.”<br />

Sounding more and more bitter by the moment, Keane’s latest<br />

complaint centres on how he was treated when his time was up.<br />

After a row with assistant manager Carlos Queiroz, he was shown the<br />

door in no uncertain manner.<br />

Neville – the voice of wisdom<br />

Unlikely as it may seem, and it does seem very unlikely, Gary<br />

Neville has been something of a revelation this season.<br />

No longer is he simply Beckham’s best mate or the full-back<br />

whose fist-pumping victory salute to opposing Liverpool fans still<br />

looks laughable. No, the former Manchester United defender is now<br />

Submit your FREE classified with pictures at:<br />


the star turn on Sky Sports.<br />

Many other<br />

ex-pros have tried<br />

and failed at this<br />

job. There was<br />

Jamie Redknapp,<br />

who sounded so<br />

keen but then said<br />

so little, or Robbie<br />

Earle, who sounds<br />

like he was told<br />

5 minutes before<br />

kick off which<br />

game he was going<br />

to.<br />

All that is over though. Enter Gary Neville, the voice of<br />

footballing reason. Neville is great because he seems to be<br />

focused purely on football and explaining the game to the<br />

masses, rather than using Sky Sports as a vehicle to remain in<br />

the public eye now his playing days are over.<br />

He no longer seems like the nerdy, weasel-like stub of a<br />

player; he is now Neville the pundit, analyst and deliverer of<br />

tasty anecdotes.<br />

One of the true joys of listening to Neville is that he is<br />

unashamedly biased. They must almost fear giving him a<br />

Liverpool game to work on as he’ll be wearing the opposing<br />

team’s colours while simultaneously kissing a photo of Fergie<br />

that’s in his top pocket.<br />

He has already managed to annoy Chelsea boss Andre<br />

Villa-Boas by suggesting David Luiz has been playing like he is<br />

being “controlled by a 10-year-old in the crowd on a PlayStation”.<br />

A wonderful line, and we can only hope<br />

there is more to come. In a world of slick<br />

suits, sharp delivery and product placement,<br />

it’s reassuring to know that there<br />

is a place in the world of football commentary<br />

for someone like Gary Neville.<br />
