The lifeguards warn us of the Rip Tides in Phuket!
- isn't that the red flags?
The traffic direction in Patong is going to to be changed back... who is going to change all the maps?

Then I read, see and hear the rain and wind...

"Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Cape Panwa taxi drivers and tour operators who use the Phuket Deep Sea Port" - I hope that it all works out.

3G in Phuket is a problem - this is why and this is where 3G is.

After the recent blockades at the Deep Sea Port there is a 
Police raid for counterfiet goods in Patong 
- just when I wanted to go shopping...

There is a problem with illegal taxi drivers in Bangkok - come to Phuket.

Coral is recovering until... high season?

stealing a camera for 7 days
Phuket Immigration are likely to deport him - unless?

No press freedom in Thailand - 138th... then the Internet.

Deaths in Phuket - RIP
A local dies through drowning.

business as usual then...

Tablets (knock off) for the students (Pheu Thai Party) - 
and this was tried by Thaksin (but nothing happened)...

Thaksin promises to return this year 2011.

only in Thailand.

A Thai Nun is seen abusing somebody but cannot be prosecuted?

I love the Culture Ministry....
Bare boobies at Song Kran... a national disgrace....
But a nun who encourages "sexual touching" to adjust people's karma.... No action against the nun....but threaten those who posted videos of the "bizarre" rituals with violation of the Computer Crimes Act.
Glad to see they have their priorities straight


Death at Siam Water Park in Bangkok - unfortunate but clearly there is a need to find blame, I would not let my child out of my sight...

Big Buddah road widening - 'slow but steady'..

More people arrested with drugs - i know that the tourist numbers are down 
BUT there are more people from ******

Then a Chinese Firm to look at building a light railway...

Then they want to change the one way system in Patong again -
my advice - don't drive in Patong.
