Why not arrest the Principal?
The Nation reports that the police arrested a 32-year-old man transporting 495 kilograms of marijuana worth an estimated Bt5 million.
For many years we have been observing this recurring procedure: Police hang the small ones, warn the big ones behind the crime with quick success messages - and let them escape...
But the best

Health Benefits, Risks & Nutrition Facts
Eat Bananas - Support Thailand
A Banana a Day can keep the Doctor away
  • Bananas are rich in potassium and dietary fiber
  • Bananas are high in antioxidants, which can provide protection from free radicals
  • Bananas can also be a good way to get magnesium and vitamins C and B6
  • Bananas are known to reduce swelling, protect against developing type-2 diabetes, aid in weight loss, strengthen the nervous system and help with production of white blood cells
  • Unripe green bananas may help with controlling gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea and ulcers, and may lower cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Warning: People who use beta blockers should not suddenly increase their intake of foods high on potassium. High potassium foods include papaya, bananas, prunes, cantaloupe, raisins, oranges and pears
The Food Industry tells you to Consume Dairy Products, not your Body!
The Food Industry tells you to Consume Dairy Products, not your Body!
There's no animal on the planet that drinks milk after weaning - and then to drink milk of another species even doesn't make any sense.
And cheese, with its combination of sodium and concentrated butterfat, should not be part of your daily diets.
During life, lactose intolerance increases. It can therefore inflame the intestines and affect the immune system, as the body no longer absorbs vitamins and minerals.
Nevertheless, a pasta or even a pizza without cheese? Heaven forbid!
Fruit Juices increase the Risk of Developing Type 2 Diabetes
Fruit Juices increase the Risk of Developing Type 2 Diabetes</
Fruit and vegetable juices are a highly lucrative business option.
The global fruit and vegetable juices market was valued at US$154 billion in 2016 and is still growing.
With the help of the media, the industry catched health-conscious consumers, telling them that a fruit juice can help to lose weight and ‘detox’ the system without missing out on nutrients.
Almost all fruits contain fructose, a natural kind of sugar.
Fructose doen't have harmful efects, as long as it not contributing to excess daily calories.
This is because the fibre found in whole fruits is intact, and the sugar is contained within the fruit's cells. It takes our digestive system a while to break these cells down and for fructose to enter the bloodstream.
But that's not the case with fruit juice.
In a fruit juice most of the fibre has been removed. As with ordinary sugar or honey, fibreless fructose is absorbed more quickly and is increasing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
It’s recommended by the World Health Organisation that adults have no more than 30g of added sugar, the equivalent of 150ml of fruit juice, per day.

Tee Rak opened on Valentine's Day
Tee Rak A Go-Go announced to open on February 14th. on Valentine's Day, its bar.
But the opening failed because the licence didn't arrive at time.
Nevertheless, since February 20th the club is open with all the necessary papers.
The opening was first scheduled for February 9th, obviously because 9 is a lucky number in this country. Nevertheless, we believe that February 14th was even more appropriate given the name of the venue.
In the next few days Pattaya's experts will certainly repair the non-functioning sign of the bar. In this High-Tech country you simply can't have fixed every single problem in time...

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...
