Songkran 2011

TAT's website for Songkran is showing the festival taking place on different dates in various locations around the country. Dates for Pattaya's Wanlai/Songkran festival are:


Is that long enough for you? 

It seems to me that additional days are added to the traditional 3 day festival every year. Also, in previous years I'm pretty sure Pattaya celebrated Songkran the week after Bangkok in order to attract Bangkokians down to Pattaya for Songkran part 2. This year the dates appear to clash. I guess I'll only really know when I get a bucketful in my face!!!! Roll on May... I know, grump, grump, grump.

Miss Thailand Universe for 2011 - Crowning Moment

“Fah” will represent Thailand in San Paulo, Brazil next September. What does Fah get from this? Well a contract with Channel 7 for starters. So, after this whole beauty queen competition is over, get ready to see Fah all over your television screens, maybe.

Thailand: Tourism and the Truth – Stacey Dooley Investigates (BBC3)

The Luton shop assistant turned investigator of human rights abuse is getting beneath the gloss of the glossy holiday brochure on the holiday island of Phuket. What she finds really isn't nice – brutal working conditions, Mickey Mouse wages, rats. And locals being forced away from the homes they've always lived in by the inexorable spread of tourism.


The brilliant thing about Stacey is she doesn't stop at the expose; she then sets about making it right. So she sets up a meeting with the hotel management to try to improve workers' conditions, and with the prime minister of Thailand, to save some sea gypsies. OK, so the PM doesn't show up, but his deputy does, and promises to save the sea gypsies. Stacy has got to see Thailand's Nick Clegg, and got a promise out of him. Let's hope he's better at sticking to them than his British counterpart.

The lovely thing about Stacey is that she's so incredibly nice to everyone and polite. She's my new journalism idol; John Pilger, you are so over.

Ed - Looks like more bad news for the Thai tourist industry.

Thailand - boob and dick sizes!!!

The website publishes maps of the Average Breast Cup Size in the World and Penis Size Worldwide. Unfortunately, Thailand scores badly, (small), in both....

If size counts then:
Ladies - You should be booking your holidays in Africa and South America.....
Gents - You should be heading to Russia and Scandinavia.....

Have to say I find the results more than a bit surprising. I mean, American men averaging 5" - 6" is hard to get my head round..... Must be a lot of Thai men living there screwing up the average!!!

A new English National Anthem

With a special word for the Scots and Welsh....


We’re English, and therefore we’re sorry,
For the things that we did years ago; 
We’re the wickedest folk on the planet, 
As the following verses will show. 

We’re sorry we fought at Culloden, 
To the Scottish we’ve always been mean;
We killed your King Jamie at Flodden, 
And we cut off the head of your Queen. 

We’re sorry, good people of Wales, 
For all of those ‘sheep-shagger’ gags; 
And we’re sorry if ever we called you 
A nation of whinging wind-bags. 

We’re sorry if you were a convict 
Who we sent off to sunnier climes; 
We condemned you to life as an Aussie, 
When you’d rather have swung for your crimes. 

We’re sorry we carved out an Empire, 
And we’re sorry for giving it back 
To people like Robert Mugabe 
Who’s no better than Stalin ... but black. 

We’re sorry we dealt in the slave trade,
And we’re sorry for stamping it out. 
We’re sorry we fought with the Zulus; 
- there’s so much we’re sorry about. 

We’re sorry, dear French, for the longbow; 
And ‘twas perfectly fair to cry ‘foul’ 
That we wouldn’t surrender to Hitler 
When you eagerly threw in the towel. 

We’re sorry for Queen Boadicea 
Who just didn’t know when to stop; 
We’re sorry we fought Mussolini, 
And we’re sorry we called him a wop. 

We’re sorry for beating the Germans 
In two World Wars and a World Cup; 
Most of all, we’re incredibly sorry 
That we cannot stop bringing it up! 

Not our fault? Even so, we’re still sorry;
We’re sorry John Lennon was shot; 
And we’re sorry for saying we’re sorry 
When it’s perfectly plain that ... we’re not.

Interesting article in Asian Golf Nation - March 2011

*Dream Area of Royal Gems CityBangkok:

After much anticipation, false starts, and expected construction delays Asia's first and only 18 hole golf course copied from the 18 of the world's greatest holes is open for "limited evaluative play"! Known as the Dream Area of Royal Gems City; the front nine comprises replicas of the world's most famous golf holes while the back nine is modeled after Augusta National. At this point I will withhold judgment on my recent play as the course won't officially open until July. However, let me know if you would like to give Royal Gems City a test drive beforehand.
