Phuket is missing Water
Just hours after the Phuket Governor held a press conference to specifically explain that Phuket is not suffering a drought crisis, about 80 residents from Rassada staged a protest in front of Phuket Provincial Hall over the lack of water supply to their community.
Who tells the true?
The People or Phuket's Governor?

No Money!
The loss-ridden State Railway of Thailand (SRT) is counting on the government's help to settle the 11.88 billion Baht in compensation it has been ordered to pay Hopewell over the cancellation of a large-scale transport project two decades ago.
Acting SRT governor Worawut Mala said on Tuesday his agency does not have enough cash to pay the compensation, and he hoped the government would step in to help.
Including interest, the amount has now reached 25 billion Baht and is payable within 180 days of the court order.
For additional information please read related reports on:
And who pays at the end?
Thailand's taxpayers!
Normally I can still keep myLady™ entertained for another hour or two. But yesterday the happy ending came after about 7 minutes.
Obviously my body knew better than I did that yesterday was Happy April Fools Day.

from the City where your Passion is still a Possibility©
Welcome to Pattaya
Pattaya still means Fun
No April Fools Today
Thailand's Dictator and his handpicked Military Junta don't like jokes
Thailand's Military Junta prefers to publish their very own 'Fake News'
with the generous help of their Election Commision
Be aware: The City is in a State of Emergency during Thailand's traditional New Year Festival
Pattaya Songkran Festival
Songkran Rules 2019:
Powder and chalk are not permitted, nor are high-power water guns
Songkran foam parties have been banned too
Water-throwing has to stop at 18:00
But it is also a Thai tradition to ignore all the rules
Nothing shows the childlike mind of the Thais better than Songkran and their stupid television shows and soap operas.
Thailand's health ministry even had to warn its citizens of possible Post-Songkran Depressions.
A Farce staged by Thailand's Military Junta?
Thailand's Free and Fair Elections: A Farce?
Did Thailand's Dictator and his hand-picked Military Junta launch the most questionable Elections in Thai History?
Thailand's unteachable Architects
Dangerous Stairs
During March, I looked with a colleague at a large number of condominiums, shophouses and one & multi-storey detached houses.
We noticed that the stairs in most buildings are much too steep and the steps much too short. In simple words: Too dangerous to use!
Sensitized, we also took a closer look at the stairs in the shopping centers - and to our surprise - they were also wrongly dimensioned in most cases.
Even in the new Terminal 21, we found completely fatically dimensioned staircases in the entrance areas.
Actually completely incomprehensible, since the calculation formula for safe and comfortable staircases was developed and presented by Engineer and Mathematician Francois Blondel as early as 1675. It is still valid all over the world, except in Thailand. Here the formula is obviously ignored both by the architects and by the responsible authorities. A shame!
How to Calculate Staircase Dimensions and Designs.
Coconut Oil works better than DEET!
Repelling Insects
A recent study by a scientists' team led by Junwei Zhu and published in Scientific Reports journal has discovered specific coconut oil fatty acids that contains strong repellency as well as long-lasting effectiveness against several insects like mosquitoes, ticks and bed bugs.
DEET (chemical name, N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) is the active liquid ingredient in a variety of bug-repellent sprays, lotions, sticks, roll-ons and other consumer products. DEET works by forming a barrier that masks the human scent from attracting insects.
Tests show that the coconut's oil fatty acids' repellency was stronger and had longer residual activity than that of DEET, fending off biting flies and bed bugs for up to two weeks after application, and repelling ticks for up to one week, as compared with DEET's three days of effectiveness.

Lazy Officials?

Traffic Light on Pattaya Beach Road
This traffic light in front of the Hard Rock Hotel on Pattaya Beach Road has been out of service for about 2 months. Nobody is interested in it.....
Our Police pass the road a few times a day, but seem to be blind - or simply too lazy to inform the relevant people.

Toxic Smog or Flooded Streets?
Smog over Chiang Mai
Toxic Smog over Chiang Mai
Toxic smog turns thousands of Tourists away from Northen Thailand, Khaosod English reports.
In Pattaya heavy rains flood streets since more than 30 years. Our Politicians speaks and promise since 30 years too, but in reality nothing ever changed.
In Chiang Mai, Thailand's Dictator General Prayuth Chan-ocha, used his power to order the officials to solve the problem within 7 days. Perhaps he can use the same power to replace Pattaya's officials by capable men - assuming, of course, he can find such people at all in this country...
Pattaya flooded

Strolling Police
Pattaya's strolling Police
Pattaya Police and their new Boss, Pol. Col. Prawit Chorsang, enjoy the strolling on Soi 6, Soi Buakhaow and Walking Street.
You can do it too!
Police report that during their tours in the resort’s red light districts no issues were discovered - no underage personnel, no drugs, no weapons and no prostitution.
In the eyes of our Police, Pattaya must be the cleanest city in the world.

The new Buffet Restaurant is called Just Blue. Obviously it is getting harder and harder to find a memorable name for a new business.

Sarasota Cafe
The restaurant, previously known as Soi Buakhaow Take Away, is now known as Sarasota Cafe.
Surprising Insider Tip

Rich A Go-Go
On April 10th, 2019, Rich A Go-Go opened in the rooms of the former Mandarin A Go-Go Bar. The venue has no connection to the well-known Rich Bar, Restaurant and Hotel on Soi Buakhaow.
The opening was very unspectacular: The management obviously decided not to hold the otherwise usual opening party. Probably as compensation for this, it let dance a bunch of sexy Ladies.

Scooters Bar Soi 14
On March 30th, 2019, Scooters Bar opened a new Branch in Soi 14, off Walking Street, in the rooms of the defunct Secrets A Go-Go Club.
Scooters is one of the rare success stories in Pattaya. Obviously the management understands the business much better than most other people in this funny town.
Catwalk A Go-Go
Catwalk A Go-Go opened as a second floor bar in the rooms of the former New Star Massage Parlour.
The entrance to the venue is not on Walking Street and not on Soi Diamond, it use the steep stairs of the defunct Overmind Club on Soi 15, off Walking Street.

Western Brews
Western Brews is obviously taking shape: The advertising is already mounted and illuminates the night over the entrance to the failed Topaz Night Club.
In addition to Beer, the management promises world class Continental Cuisines...
The management has not yet announced anything about the prices of drinks and foods.
We will keep you up-to-date.
White Bar becomes the new home for a Panda
In the rooms of the miserably failed White Bar a Chinese restaurant called Panda is announced to open soon.
According to our information, the Panda Restaurant has no connection to the very successful Panda A Go-Go Bar at the entrance to Walking Street.
Update: The Restaurant is now open!

No Alcohol Days
Thailand's National No Alcohol Days include Buddhist holidays and election days.
On all other days alcohol can only be sold between 11:00-14:00 and 17:00-24:00.
Vendors caught breaking the ban are liable to a prison sentence of up to six months, a 10'000 Baht fine or both - but local Police use their own discretion to decide which venues need to be visited and fined...
Don't start laughing:
Do not try to buy non alcoholic beers (available from Clausthaler and Oettinger in this country).
The shops won't sell them during dry days.
Some not even sell Soda Water, because Thais and their Police associate it with (Thai) Whisky...
There's a sucker born every minute...

Brainless Politicians
Even after decades of promoting and using Lithium-ion Batteries, there is still no successful recycling model for lithium-ion batteries.
Nevertheless, our stupid politicians are still promoting electric automobiles and electric motorcycles and the industries its 'Smartphones'.
Lithium cobalt (III) oxide, lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide, aluminium foil and polyvinylidene fluoride binder are still poisoning our environment.
In the end, battery-powered vehicles are the bigger polluters than fossil-fueled cars and motorcycles.
OLED Notebooks
Our source in China reports that Dell, HP and Lenovo are set to launch Notebook built around a new 15.6-inch 4K OLED display from Samsung.
Other makers will follow soon as China-based Everdisplay Technology has also announced to start production of 4K OLED notebook panels.
