Returning Happiness to the Monkeys
About 50 monkeys from the nearby Laem Pu Jao mountain are raiding the houses of the Navy and the Industrial Department based in Sattahip, one of Thai Army's stronghold. The monkeys are stealing food from kitchens and dustbins and are damaging property on an almost daily basis. It seems that Sattahip's clever monkeys got General Prayuth Chan-ocha order too and want to be part of his Returning Happiness to the People campaign. Should Sattahip's monkeys join their counterparts on Pattaya's Walking Street, Beach Promenade, City Hall and/or Soi 9 you will read it here...
Eastern & Oriental Express Train derailed near River Kwai
Today at about 10:30 the Eastern & Oriental Express Train derailed with 80 passengers on board near the Bridge on the Kwai River in Thailand's Kanchanaburi district as it was taking a curve before Luk Kae station. The accident injured at least two Japanese women who were taken to San Camillo Hospital in Bang Pong. The injured passengers were Japanese women. The train with 18 cars departed from Singapore for Thailand, travelling through Malaysia and on to Kanchanaburi. The passengers were all foreign tourists taking a vacation in Thailand.
During the last year dozens of derailments happened in Thailand. There aren't any adequate maintenace procedures at Thailand's State Railway.
Singapore reports a high number of Dengue cases!
Singapore's National Environment Agency (NEA) reported that the number of dengue cases this year reached 11'225, adding more than 1'000 cases to the 10'112 cases reported on July 10. Singapore's Minister for Environment and Water Resources Vivian Balakrishnan said that the rate of potential mosquito breeding in construction sites and homes is still unacceptably high. During the last few years Pattaya reported rising dengue cases during the rainy seasons too. For this year City Hall didn't publish any numbers, but Bangkok Hospital Pattaya warned Pattaya's citizens about the problem and recommends to use a mosquito repellents. But be shure that it contains DEET, it's the magic ingredient against mosquito carrying the Aedes aegypti virus.
Education in Thailand
According to a video clip posted on YouTube a Lecturer at Kalasin Rajabhat University exchanged grades for 7-Eleven discount stamps. The professor asked students to trade their 7-Eleven stamps in exchange for better grades. I will give you a better grade if you bring me the stamps. It is not mandatory, just a suggestion, the lovely professor tells his students in the clip. One girl reportedly exchanged 400 stamps for an A grade... 7-Eleven stamps are part of a promotional campaign run by the convenience store. Patrons are rewarded with stamps for their purchases, which can then be traded for gifts and discounts. PS.: On his his weekly address to the nation Military Junta Leader General Prayuth Chan-ocha complained on July 11th that Thais were lacking in morality which leads to corruption and a decline in national prestige. Update: Nopporn Kosirayothin, the acting rector of Kalasin Rajabhat University, told the press that she [the Lecturer] might have thought it was ordinary practice, judging from what I heard, that some lecturers at other places also exchange grades for some beer... Update (July 18th, 2014): Assist Prof Nopporn Kosirayothin, acting rector of Kalasin Rajabhat University, said lecturer Nattaya Hokpunna, head of the pre-school education department at the faculty of education, has been suspended from teaching and banned from involvement in any educational activities with immediate effect.
Travel + Leisure magazine reports its readers voted Bangkok out of the world's top 10 tourist destinations. After months of political turmoil Bangkok lost the top position it occupied during the last 4 years. To improve the immage of Thailand's capital the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) announced it will start reorganising street vendors mid this month. The process should be complete by the end of the month. BMA adviser Pol MajGeneral Wichai Sangprapai said that would explain to street vendors that they don't have the right to sell goods on footpaths. Street vendors have until the end of the month to adjust to the move, with police set to arrest footpathblocking vendors, the BMA adviser said. Update (July 8th, 2014): The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) announced it will try to restore confidence in order to reclaim its title as the top tourist destination from Kyoto. Bangkok's City Hall will organise activities as Music in the Park, Fashion Street Events and Food Festivals to promote tourism during Thailand's cool season.
Let Thailand's Civil Servants travel!
The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) added August 11th to the list of public holidays this year in order to create an extra long weekend to boost the tourism sector. Due to political unrest Thailand is missing foreign tourists. According to the Military Junta the four-day long weekend from August 9th - 12th will help to re-energise tourism in the country. Beneficiaries of the long weekend are Civil Servants and Bank Employees. Ordinairy people have to work. Bring Happiness to the High(er) Earners.
Don't leave your Room without Passport!
Pattaya Police and members of Sattahip's Navy are almost daily on Pattaya's and Jomtien's Beach Roads as well as on Walking Street's establishments. They fellow an order of General Prayuth Chan-ocha's National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO). Farangs without Passport (or a copy of it) face arrest. Happy Holidays...
The End of Visa Runs?
TTRweekly and Thaivisa.com report The End of Visa Runs. According to Thailand's Foreign Ministry border runners will be prohibited from re-entering Thailand at overland checkpoints as of August 12th, 2014, once their original visa-free stay expires.
Suvarnabhumi Airport open to Corruption?
On July 1st Bangkok Post published a report called Customs enforcing duty-free limits on personal goods purchased overseas. It tells that the Suvarnabhumi Airport Passenger Control Customs Bureau will calculate the value of all personal items, souvenirs, gifts and/or brandname goods purchased overseas. If the combined value of those products exceed 10'000 Baht, passengers will have to pay import duty. The 10'000 Baht duty-free limit is now being strictly policed, the Customs Department announced. On July 2nd the same newspaper published Random checks to continue as usual, says new customs chief, saying that Suvarnabhumi's Customs Department did not intend to start enforcing stricter controls on travellers. Customs officials at airports would continue with their random checks as usual. Please read both reports very carefully and you will agree that the statements mean that it is up to the Officials of the Customs Department if they will fine you - or not. An Open Door for Corruption and Bribes?
Update July 4th, 2014: The Customs Department's working committee says it will ask to raise the duty-free limit on new personal items bought abroad from 10'000 Baht at present to about 80'000 to 100'000 Baht. It seems the Officials already knew that the current duty-free limit is too low and not in line with economic circumstances. With today's duty-free limit you not even can take your new Apple or Samsung phone into Thailand without paying import duties.
Thanks to a system error at National ITMX Co., the system provider for the intra-bank clearing system, customers could not withdraw money by using the ATM machines of other banks. Moreover customers found that their withdrawal was debited from their account, but the machine did not pay out the cash... Weidt Nuchcharoen, a senior executive vice president of Krungthai Bank, said the system went down around noon on June 30th and resumed, but became unusable again about 16:00. When the system resumed, some ATM machines showed a message saying that the service was not available. All banks faced the same problem. Bangkok Bank's call centre advised customers not to withdraw money for a few days to prevent any recurrence of the problem.
That's High-Tech in Thailand - or with the words of the Military Junta: Bring back Happiness to the Thai People...
Thai Navy 'surprised'
Tourist Police in conjunction with the Royal Thai Navy Military Police based in Sattahip conducted checks of a number of venues which were suspected of employing Royal Thai Navy Officers as Security Guards which is not permitted under Military Regulations. The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) ordered all sections of the Military to make checks on their personnel to ensure they are operating within the confines of Military laws and regulations. The checks revealed that two Navy personnel were working as Security Guards in front of Luzifer's Disco. Both were detained and taken away by Military Police for further investigation.
It's simply funny: We know since many years that venues can 'order' Navy personel as security guards at an (official?) office in Sattahip... We recommend the Navy to check some venues in Northern Pattaya too! It's still a miracle how people can do their duties without sleeping whole the night.
City Hall stops Violence
In an attemp to follow General Prayuth Chan-ocha and his National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO)'s order to improve the image of the country Ronnakit Aekasing, a deputy mayor of Pattaya, chaired the opening ceremony for the 'protection and security conference among Pattaya operators' at Pattaya City Hall. He said that previously violence towards foreigners had been widely spread on social media sites and these images had undermined Thailand's good tourism image. The behavier of some operators of entertainment venues had directly affected the tourism. Violence against tourists is unacceptable, he said and added that operators need to understand the various cultures of each tourist. Tourists' cultures are not the same as Thai culture. Pol.Col. Suppatee Boonkrong, the Deputy Superintendent of Pattaya's Police Station on Soi 9, said at the conference that there had been violence towards foreigners, plus some operators had exploited foreigners. Foreigners come to Pattaya for a holiday and like to drink. When drunken they can't communicate. Therefore the operators of the businesses need to contact the police officers, rather than threatening and assaulting their customers themself.. Sakchai Tang-Ho, the Chief of Bang Lamung's District Office, said that operators have to welcome foreigners and take care of them, and announced that should there still be some operators attacking and assaulting tourists we will close down their business(es) immediately.
Son of a Senior Police Officer arrested
Pattaya Police announced the arrest a son of a Senior Police Officer holding the rank of a Major General and the cousin of a Senior Officer of the Thai Army. The two stored 60 illegal slot machines in a building on Soi 15, off Soi Buakhaow. When the Police arrived, the two just were on the way to moving out the gambling machines from the storage room. They enjoyed the help of 6 of their friends. Police arrested all of them.
Deputy police chief Aek Angsananont said that from June 9th to July 3rd Police arrested 236 bankers, 3,413 gamblers and 110 bet brokers for being involved in World Cup football gambling in Thailand. The police reported 1'791 football gambling websites to the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology. The Ministry already closed 1'227 of them. All kind of gambling is prohibited in this Kingdom.
Police started the new month with another crackdown on women and lady boys offering what they say sexual services to Foreign Tourists on Pattaya Beach and Walking Street. The Police arrested over 60 Thai defendants and more than 10 females from Madagascar. Before they could leave the Police Station on Soi 9 our Police carefully checked their criminal history and recorded their particulars and ordered every single 'guest' to pay 500 Baht for the 'happy' event.

Capt. Sittichai Chamsawat of the 14th Military Circle in Chonburi announced that motorbike taxis will have to adhere to the existing, but currently ignored, Land Transport Department fare regulations. The regulation says that rides of two kilometers or less should not exceed 25 Baht. The third through fifth kilometer adds only 5 Baht each to the fare. Currently, Pattaya Motorbike Taxi Drivers charge 40 Baht for even the very shortest rides. Capt. Sittichai Chamsawat says distances of more than five kilometers would remain negotiable.
Anop Praditsakul, a local motorbike-taxi boss controlling at least 65 bikes across the top and bottom of three streets around Soi 9, announced to cooperate with the Military Junta in its effort to combat unfair practices by Motorbike Taxi Drivers and to reduce the influence of gangs controlling Motorcycle Taxi Drivers...
We promise and promise but still do nothing
During June, 2014, Pattaya City Hall announced that its Police will remove all offenders occupying public parking lots and obstructing traffic flow. Nothing happened until today: Street vendors, motorcycle taxi drivers and motorcycle businesses are still hampering Beach Road's traffic.
Wheelchair Path still blocked!
On Soi Phaniatchang, also known as Soi Yume or Soi Carrefour, City Hall spent 3 million Baht for a wheelchair path. Pattaya's large-hearted road users are happy to block the path with their vehicles and say thank you for the new parking lane. It seems that nobody takes care of the about 850 students from the Soi's Redemptorist Vocational School - not even our lazy police. They close the eyes.
New traffic sign in Pattaya
A new sign caused confusion among Pattaya's street users. Many Farangs as well as Thais thought that the new signs are banning all kind of parking in this area. It's not the case. Fact is that the new signs marks a crossing, either a street cossing or a gateway, and prohibit any stop of a vehicle in the marked area. You MUST NOT enter the box until your exit road or lane is clear. The aim is to improve the free flow of the traffic in Pattaya. Police can - and would - fine any offender.
We urge our readers - as well as our Police and City Hall's Officials - to read Double yellow line, published and explained by Wikipedia.
CentralFestival's Pattaya Website on July 4th, 2014: Events and Promotions for June and/or July coming soon... The website promotes CentralFestival Samui only. Is CentralFestival Pattaya already dead?
CentralFestival's Pattaya Website even forget to announce its Thai Food Festival (July 4th - 6th, 2014)...
On July 19th Police and Administrative Officers raided the popular Winner Pub and Karaoke on Soi Buakhaow a second time. Police already paid a visite to the venue on July 5th and ordered a 30-day closure of the establishment. Nevertheless the operator re-opened the bar before the 30 days had expired, therefore the Authorities decided to close the pub for another 60 days.
Police closed the Hottuna Bar, located on Pattaya's Walking Street in front of Country Bar, or just accross of the Soi's Holy Tree.
On July 9th our busy Police raided the Windmill Club on Walking Street's Soi Diamond and Bang-Up on North Pattaya's Soi 1 and arrested a total of 20 performers. The Windmill Club is a popular A Go-Go Bar known among Farangs for its 'openhearted' ladies. The Police closed the venue. Nevertheless, a message on the door of the bar told that the venue will reopen on July 13th 'above Super Baby A Go-Go on Walking Street'. But on July 13th the venue reopened as nothing ever happened on Si Diamond - the interim closure order disappeared. Bang-Up is a long-running establishment providing sex-shows mainly for chinese tourists with entry fees between 500 and 2'500 Baht, depending on your negotiating skills. The venue with the explicit sex shows seems to have better connections than others in the business: It's still open... According to our recordings the last time Bang-Up was raided on August 16th, 2005, by Pattaya's Tourist Police and Banglamung's District Administration Policy. Since then the venue could run its business unmolested... TiP (This is Pattaya). According to myLady™ there is still a higher - but for Farangs invisible - authority somewhere in this country.
We just learned from another closure. A few days ago Police raided and closed Walking Street's V2O Ice Bar for 60 days. According to our information the bar has to be closed until 1st of September. No cooling available during the next hot weeks...
Duing the early hours of July 7th Police raided South Pattaya's popular Bamboo Bar on Pattaya's South Road near the entry to Walking Street. Police checked passports and ID cards and made random checks for illegal drugs via urine tests. At the time of writing we were still missing the result(s).
At about 05:30(!) on July 6th Banglamung District Licensing Officers raided Zeeds Pub located across Soi Buakhaow entry to Soi Jirapol and noticed that the venue was still open. From the many patrons 24 people were found to be under the age of 18, 1 man and 3 women failed the randomly made drug tests. The manager of the venue was arrested and charged with opening the venue after its licensed operating hours. The Governor of Chonburi Province who will likely impose a lengthy closure order on the venue.
A court order closed Walkabout Creek Pub at the corner South Road / 3rd Road for 60 days for ignoring a previous 30-day closure order. The management ran the Pub without the required licences.

The End of a Buffet Restaurant
Aroy, the popular Buffet Restaurant on Pattaya's Sukhumvit Road, disappears from from this City. It has to make space for a more lucrative business. As a replacement we recommend the Nai Por Buffet on Pattaya's North Road, just across from Pattaya's Bus Terminal.
Malibu goes New Orleans
In the rooms of the former New Orleans Restaurant on Soi Pattayaland 2, also known as Soi 13/4, Malibu will open a Bar and Restaurant.
During the first weekend of July Sexy A Go-Go, a Soi 7 club, closed its door.

Taco House closed
Taco House on Soi Buakhaow closed and is on the block.
Chalet Suisse, Central Pattaya's one and only Swiss Food Restaurant (and Guesthouse), refurbished its first floor during the last few weeks. Now you can taste its Swiss Specialities not only in perfect surroundigs, but also at pleasing Swiss temperatures. Chalet Suisse is located on a small Soi connecting Central Pattaya Road with Soi 7, just across the entry to the Basaya Beach Hotel.
Nai Por, located on Pattaya's North Road just across from Pattaya's Bus Terminal, is Pattaya's most popular Buffet Restaurant. For 199 Baht (up from 189 Baht) you eat-as-much-as-you-can. Beverages are not included in the food price, but fresh salads and vegetables, steaks, ice creams, seafoods and a lot more.
Since more than a year you can read advertisements in Pattaya's publications telling you that a new Tukcom Shopping Mall will open soon on Pattaya's Central Road. The picture, captured on June 20th, 2014, shows that 'soon' still is far away...

Ginza I, and Ginza II, the two A Go-Go Clubs closed by Pattaya's Police a few weeks ago, were still in the dark on our Tour the Pattaya on July 22th. A pitiable sight... PS.: Walking Street's latest rumours claim that both bars are on the block.
Apple, the Pub and Fitness club located across from Marine Disco and managed by Tony's, as well as Walking Street's Harem, a table dance club and a dependence of Soi Diamond's Harem Flatrate, reopened on July 5th, 2014. Police closed both venues last month because of missing licences.
5 people - two staff members, 2 Russian women and 1 Russian man - were detained for further investigation. They failed the urine testing. According to Police, the venue was open after its licensed opening hours, therefore a report will be sent to the Governor of Chonburi Province who may decide to impose a temporary or permanent closure order on the venue. Update: New Problems for MiXX Discotheque About 2 months ago Pattaya Officials discovered that a part of MiXX's Building is illegally overlapping an important sewer. They therefore ordered the MiXX Owner(s) to remove these parts, but the Owner(s) kept silent and didn't any dismantling as ordered by the officials. Mixx Discotheque now got an order to dismantle the building. If they still refuse to do anything the officials will send contractors to dismantle the building immediately, City Hall says.
A court closed Lucifer Disco last month. Its management not only employed violent security guards, but also ran the Disco on expired licences. Since a few days the Disco display the above message.
On Soi 16, off Walking Street, Layla is preparing her Residence. She tells that she is coming soon, but 'soon' will take some months or even a year...

Fruit Juices still provide too much Sugar
iScientist™ warned our readers during the last few years many times of drinking (to much) Fruit Juice. Now he got the support from England's Department of Health. In a report published by The Guardian the Government recommends that people should get no more than 5% of their daily calories from so-called "free sugar", a term that includes table sugar, the sugar added to food and drinks, and that found naturally in fruit juices, syrups and honey. The Department of Health sets an upper limit on free sugar of around 25g or six teaspoons a day for a healthy woman, and around 35g or seven teaspoons for a man. A new report from researchers at the University of Glasgow in the U.K. equated your glass of fruit juice to your can of soda - just with a few more vitamins. And your perception of how healthy juice actually is can be way off as well. People underestimate the sugar content in fruit juice. Keep in mind an 8-oz (236 ml) serving of soda contains about 26 to 31 grams of sugar. Same cans of Fruit juices can easily provide 50 grams or more of sugar. Because the research was made in England, the researchers excluded Beer and Whisky, had a French organisation compiled the report they certainly excluded Wine... iScientist™ recommends: Simply avoid anything claiming to be healthy!
During our reseach about Sugar in Fruit Juices we encountered an unexpected problem. According to Google, the Daily Mail site provided some information too, but the site was blocked by Thailand's Ministry of Information and Communication Technology. The website of the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday has been blocked by Thailand's Military Junta for an unappropriate publication about the lifestyle of the country's Crown Prince and his wife. Thailand is one of the world's worst countries when it comes to censoring the Internet.

Enjoy your holiday's on Pattaya's Beach with Pattaya's funny rats. Pattaya's Public Health and Environment Department claims it has been exterminating rats for more than seven years, but as a frequent visitor of Pattaya's Beach Promenade we always 'enjoyed' the presence of these animals. They never disappeared in all that years. Their population isn't shrinking, with every year we found more and more of these nasty guests...

Do not cloud!
Do not store your data on cloud(s) if you work from a country like Thailand. High-Tech in Thailand means that the rest of world is out of sight of your computer more often than you can imagine... Warn your correspondents: If you don't answer their e-mails it doesn't mean your gone to glory. It only means that (part of) Thailand's internet is down (once again).
LG's new Pocket Photo PD239 is a compact mobile printer that makes printing photos from your smart phone or tablet fun. The printer measures only 76x126x20mm and connects to your smartphone by Bluetooth. It prints out Polaroid-like photos, 2x3 inches in size at a good resolution of 313dpi. The built-in rechargeable battery handles up to 30 photos per charge. The photos aren't quite as clear and defined as what you get from a professional print shop, but it provides fun and happiness - as requested by our Military Junta.

The boats are overloaded, don't provide lifevests for all passengers, are badly maintaited and aren't covered by adequate insurance policies. Pattaya's lazy and allegedly corrupt Officials promised to check owners, personnel and boats regularly, but they don't.
According to Pattaya Police, it is common in this resort that foreign tourists get drugged and robbed in their hotel rooms, apartments or houses by prostitutes or ladyboys.
