The week that was in Thailand news: Stiffs and pipedreams make for an amusing week!

 

unnamed.jpg

 

An American friend at a birthday party this week said: "Rooster old chap (feigning a plummy accent).... you really need to get out more. 

 

"The beaches are empty - what are you waiting for man?"

 

We were enjoying a roast lamb dinner at his place. Yes, it was great to get out and cross the county lines out of Bangkok to Pathum Thani but I had a ready excuse for being such a homeboy.

 

C.I.S. - Covid Inertia Syndrome. I haven't seen it anywhere on the internet yet, only heard of conditions called "Lockdown Fatigue" or "Coronavirus Syndrome", the mental stress from constantly hearing about the virus.

 

I'm not stressed by virus news though I must admit that when my news editor sends me stories to translate that have Covid in them (50%?) I feel inclined to go and throttle his northern English neck for the sheer fun of it. 

 

No, for me it's CIS (better than the acronym for Pandemic Inertia Special Syndrome that would really be taking the mickey).

 

Many Thais are suffering from it too. Despite the fact that all Thailand is out there - much of it empty, with nature having recovered and people desperate for our custom - I just can't be bothered.

 

It's true inertia, the "unwillingness of a body to move" in the scientific sense. And this body is unwilling. 

 

The wife feels it and the children, perhaps to a lesser extent, do too. The result is staying home, not even going to the nearby park. Cooking at home, foregoing restaurants.

 

I can't say we're particularly fearful of the virus, we just can't be bothered and are perfectly happy letting the stories about the deserted beaches float by like the gentle breezes mentioned in the promotional material. Letting the hotels with their discounts stay empty, ignoring government handouts.

 

We'll just stay home like so many others, bung on Netflix and get a home delivery if we fancy something different. Sad perhaps, but true.

 

Fortunately one of the best treatments for CIS is a healthy dose of Thaivisa!

 

Both for employees of the company such as myself and for those who follow the humor, quirkiness and flip flopping of the Thai authorities online, it was a truly bumper week. 

 

The last seven days had everything so get a coffee, follow the links and enjoy!

 

The week started with the various fallout from last Sunday's Valentine's Day. Police were checking if a Thai wife had her fingerprints on a 15 inch kitchen knife after she claimed hubby plunged it into his own chest because of depression.

 

She looked worried as plod doubted her story.

 

Down in Pattaya (and not for the last time in a week dominated by QUOTES - the Queen Of The Eastern Seaboard) - foreigners and Thais in Walking Street were slammed for not socially distancing and not wearing masks

 

Somehow the headline writer - a pitiful hack who lives in Ratchayothin - managed to say it was a St Valentine's Day Maskacre.

 

Perhaps it was the fact that mayor Sontaya reminds me of Al Capone in a purple silk tunic that did it. 

 

(The shaming of the partygoers was absurd especially when put into context by the massive queues nationwide as old folk without smartphones swamped Krung Thai bank branches for "Rao Chana" handouts).

 

The best story concerned a man who decided to spice up the "Day of Love" with a metal ring placed on his "Thai todger".

 

Unfortunately this produced a swelling that refused to dissipate putting the pee in priapism. 

 

The Poh Teck Tung foundation staffer, more used to putting stiffs on the back of his pick-up after road accidents than handling stiffs, was tasked with cutting it off at the ER room. The ring, that is. 

 

He whipped out his tool (cutting equipment) and saved the day. For the full Viz comic style news report follow the link.

 

And to the Thaiger news round-up reporter who copied my crassness without crediting Thaivisa - eternal shame and flaccidness on you. 

 

It was a day when my editor had said "every one of these 11 stories could be the lead" and it certainly seemed like Super Tuesday. 

 

News came that the death toll on the roads was already 2,047 this year with a staggering 131,282 injured so far in 2021. A national disgrace is all I can muster on the issue this week.

 

The Thaivisa faithful, especially the bashers on the Facebook arm, were worked up into the mother of all lathers by news that investors were pumping 4.5 billion baht into Jomtien

 

By the time a story about a croissant shop in Rayong arrived in my inbox Rooster was unstoppable.

 

The owner had rejected mum's idea for a staid bakery and with the help of her "pretty" pastry packing pals had decided to put a bit of "oomph" in the French delicacies now all the rage in Thailand. 

 

Some of the ladies looked like they might topple over if they overreached the counter while the forum remained good natured, a million miles away from political correctness. 

 

Which is more than could be said for some absurd posters spouting PC about Child Labor abuse in connection with a tale about a charming 10 year old selling her gran's organic veg for profit at a gas station.

 

Maybe it was the mention of the word "entrepreneur" in the headline that got to their prissy sensibilities. To me it seemed that Baiyok , jade who was a real gem, is a conscientious young lady doing her bit to help out the family in her freetime. 

 

Of course she was not exploited or in danger at the gas station where countless people would be looking after her welfare.

 

Like many others who refuted the nonsense over many pages on the thread, Rooster reminisced of paper rounds, gardening jobs, cheap decorating work and child minding from a bygone era when things seemed simpler and more fun.

 

When child abduction was likely more prevalent than it is today but when the news media didn't thrust bad news down everyone's throats every five minutes.

 

Ganja, as the Thais like to call it, was an almost daily diet, particularly at those gimmicky restaurants where they think marijuana leaves are healthy and will pull in the customers. 

 

They look cute draped over an omelet but give me parsley any day. I know my 'erbs as the Americans say. 

 

DPM and health minister, the ever hapless Anutin, penned his name to five new medications that can be made from the wonder drug including a treatment for piles. 

 

I was relieved to see that the leaves would be processed and the fat, sticky buds were still a no-no.

 

Anutin, who has exhibited as many gaffes as guffs over the last year, was not publicly berated for spilling the beans about the first stages of the vaccine rollout despite ministers being told by Uncle Too to hold their horses. 

 

He couldn't resist going on Facebook just hours after the cabinet meeting prompting grumpy Prayut - under pressure facing his own censure debate - to announce some dates. 

 

Later in the week came news that Anutin was going to provide the jab even to the farangs who refused his masks last February; anyone in Thailand would be vaccinated come June. 

 

Cue the forum who moaned about being at the back of the queue and not wanting the Sinovac jab from China. 

 

It reminded me of a cartoon in one of the first editions of venerable Viz that will resonate with Australian readers - it was called "Whinging Pom".

 

It featured an Englishman with a knotted handkerchief on his head and a comely "shiela" by his side on Bondi Beach sipping a beverage. He was moaning about the hot weather and blue skies, the cold beer and his willing and buxom Australian companion.

 

Clearly some still believe the British 1950s political slogan that not only have they never had it so good but would never get it so good again! Bless...

 

In international news the generals in Myanmar made the khaki clad brigade in Thailand look like decent chaps in comparison as they cut the internet and threatened to throw dissenters in jail for 20 years. 

 

In Dubai that nasty Sheikh Mohammed came under increased BBC scrutiny for locking up Princess Latifa who he had kidnapped and has held hostage for years. The toothless UN promised action, just like their hollow words whenever it comes to the rulers in Saudia Arabia who trample over human rights.

 

A rocket launcher anyone?

 

Stateside, Dr Anthony Fauci, of Covid and AIDS fame, won the prestigious million dollar Dan David prize from Israel for "defending science". Well done, sir, you'll be remembered for good unlike that buffoon you used to have to work for.

 

In England, eloquent advocate for the poor, footballer Marcus Rashford found himself on Time's "next 100 emerging leaders" list. Already an MBE, let's hope he continues his brilliant activism beyond his Man Utd days and becomes an MP we could be proud of. 

 

In Australia, a spat between the government and Facebook resulted in the platform removing news content. In related news Google promised to pay Rupert Murdoch's News Corp for some content putting pressure on FB. 

 

Many hundreds of millions of miles away from planet earth the "Perseverance" rover successfully touched down in a crater on Mars. What a stellar achievement again from NASA - and for me what a fantastic thing to share with my young children. Just like my teachers in England in the 1960s inspired me with tales of Apollo. 

 

Back in Thailand it was Pattaya once again in the news. It was hard to "Stop Panning Pattaya" as just an hour's worth of precipitation on Wednesday left the resort flooded

 

Mayor Sontaya still spoke up for his drainage. One of his JCB's has sneaked onto the sands in the middle of the night after his multi million dollar sands had been partially washed away yet again.

 

Saving face under the cover of darkness, something no doubt taught to him by his dear pater, Kamnan Poh, a convicted murderer.

 

Rooster summed up the possibility of improved drainage infrastructure in Pattaya as a "pipedream".  

 

Also at the resort came further news about the many foreigners and Thais who were swindled out of more than 100 million baht by an assistant bank manager. Foreigners really should learn to read Thai if the surname of the now incarcerated manager is anything to go by.

 

It is Sappermpoon that means the accumulation of money. I'd have given him a wide berth based on his "naam sagun".

 

The Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo came under fire online for mistreating its animals. After a parks' authority visit he was allowed to maintain face though this looked particularly shoddy when juxtaposed with Thaivisa's well chosen photo of a chimpanzee on a bicycle on a leash with a crash helmet.

 

Animal rights campaigner, and an old associate of Rooster, Dutchman Edwin Wiek joined in with the condemnation and further pointed to the plight of animals like elephants who are going without food due to the lack of tourists in Thailand. 

 

A kind-hearted pick-up gang in Pattaya delivered tons of much needed sugar cane and bananas to some dilapidated pachyderms in Sriracha, well done. 

 

A Dutchman letting the side down was arrested at Suwannaphum (my spelling) with wife and child after being implicated in the massive "Shopping Mall" online Ponzi con

 

While in related news a man in Sukhothai wasn't home but told plod over the phone that he would pop in in a day or two. He somehow managed to convince 10,000 Thais that they could get 500,000 baht and a monthly income just by giving him 100 baht. 

 

Words rarely fail me but what the hell???!!!

 

Also a few chilis short of a som tam, were six Thai women who thought going to war-torn Ethiopia and bringing some pretty parcels back would be a jolly jape. 

 

Cocaine was stuffed in according to a person who started a "gogetfunding" account for the ladies. Attempts to pin down this person to try and verify the story led this columnist to believe he's what we used to call in London a "barrow boy" - and a wide one at that. 

 

Treat this story with as much a pinch of salt as a whole pack of Saxa. 

 

Better news for potential visitors to Thailand came later in the week as Thai authorities from the TAT to the TCT to the ATTA to the MOPH to the THA and back to the tourism ministry continued mulling about an end to 14 day quarantine

 

The latest plan is to get those vaccinated to quarantine for 14 days in their home country before doing 2 nights, three days in Thailand. This apparently was an improvement. 

 

Group tours could be chaperoned rather like they do in North Korea but followed by doctors with needles in their hands.

 

Not surprisingly, April 1st was the anticipated start date. 

 

Intriguing news came out of Thai Airways as whistleblowers went to the DSI to say that for the last eight years 26 people had been issuing fake death certificates for colleagues at the airline to claim benefits for handling dead bodies.

 

This seemed a bit stiff, stiffing the state with stiffs. 

 

Hopefully they'll get their comeuppance though the probation department will have to build a new prison to house all the miscreants at THAI. 

 

Meanwhile new Labour Minister Suchart Chomklin promised to go after schools that hire foreign teachers on tourist visas and avoid work permits. A survey only revealed eight WP-less khrus so it hardly seemed worth their while.

 

I suggest they look closer to home at the despicable Thai folk abusing school children. One "ajarn" at a university this week assaulted his own daughter who was having trouble with her high school homework then battered his wife who had the temerity to start filming. Plod did what plod usually do - pontificated and procrastinated when they should have been prosecuting. 

 

CP group have now decided to change their name from Tesco Lotus to the unfathomable "Lotus's" that will be even harder for Thais to pronounce. I read the reason for the name change about ten times but couldn't make head nor tail of it. 

 

Surely the plural should be "Loti?" I suggested to a bemused Mrs R.

 

Whatever, the founder of Tesco must be turning in his grave; the name came from TE Stockwell, a tea company that provided the shop's first own-brand product and the CO from boss "Jack" Cohen's name. 

 

CP should have just continued calling it TESCO (Thailand Everywhere Samesame CO...rruption).

Finally, a soapier than the soaps story came out of Chainat in central Thailand. 

 

A Thai wife dressed in inappropriate funeral black, turned up at her own legal husband's second marriage ceremony holding her "tabian somrot" (marriage certificate) and started live streaming on Facebook. 

 

She then proceeded to berate her errant husband while he received the lustral waters from his new relatives. He commanded her to leave as she was not invited!

 

A further video clip - viewed now by 100,000s of Thais who had quite forgotten the TV soaps - showed the groom's mum giving him a thick ear as he and the bride tried to receive the monks' chanted blessings. 

 

It reminded me of my own second wedding but only vaguely.

 

The wife never showed up as I'd told her I was going to the north east not for any ceremonial reason....

 

But to play Scrabble.

Well,  quite astute the rooster is.    I always find something he writes to show some insight , though i often don't agree with the "follow through".

Here mr r  has observed the draining effect that hearing a pronouncement constantly,  day after

day, can have on a human being.  He of course does not touch on the subject of being basically forced to wear a mask or face the scorching stares of the petrified public.Nor the other "measures" put in place to protect us for our own good.  This is all part of the "new normal" .......... and adjust or get banned, my Faceless friends. 

Now,  we ALL must swear by the chosen Mantra that proclaims we are in the midst of a pandemic that can wipe us all out.  Certainly it will not be me that risks any banishment from society , or thaivisa as it may,  by offering any objection to the narrative.  Nope,  I will just do the same as rooster and the rest of the world......  stay at home, slightly depressed but safe in the knowledge that food and netflix are just a click away.  

I do sometimes miss the outdoors,  think of getting down to the beach for some sun and exercise.

But cmon,  isn't it so much easier now when we don't have to feel guilty for just being lazy and

lifeless creatures.     Think i'll take a nap.

"When child abduction was likely more prevalent than it is today but when the news media didn't thrust bad news down everyone's throats every five minutes."

 

I cannot argue about the last half of this comment, like right on there Good Brother Rooster !!! …  The New Age !!! ... Of the Net ! ?  ... Well everything that has come from it … Including the Politicians, and the particularly bad ones who would like to change it all to be just like a TV Reality show !!! ... Who we must not mention. Right …

 

  But though not too worried about it, like this is only a thought, …  … But I am not sure about the first bit ? ???

Having thought myself, and also having has a pretty good Upbringing ? ... That the Breakdown in Child safety, could probably be associated with the Breakdown of Community ? ... ….  With the physical addition of some pretty deranging ??? And also cover up and hiding things, technology now being available, that no one ever had before either. ?

 

Like 50 years ago every one in every street just about knew what everyone else in the street was doing ! ? … And they watched them ! … So bad eggs would have been known, and known by the Children also, so everyone knew that they had a few problems, ? ... And they might have even tried to help them, ... in the old, Set Community help way ??? ... And the children, would have sensibly kept away ... ??? or well, probably jusy taken the <deleted> out of them !!! Har har ? ...

 

… But now everyone just drives in, and out, and people hardly even knows who lives next door ? ... And the Bad Eggs just go inside, close the door and go on line !!! ??? ... Like you kids do now also !!!

 

  Still to counter that, the Cops are all on line now also, and now seem to be very good at it, and ARE catching them as well also ... Right.

 

But well ? Possibly it would be quite fair to say though, that abuse and social in equality, and mistreatment of the poor WAS probably very much more prevalent then back in the Old days  ??? ...  So yes maybe sucessfull abductions also … ? Well I do not think so.

 

... But now the brief activists lines “There always has been abuse, but it was just not reported before” ? Always has been a point of discussion for me ? … Is that really the Problem ? … Or is it really that now, with the Breakdown of neighborhood, and the basic values in the community … Maybe there IS just MORE ABUSE ??? … And it is NOT because it was not reported ??? ….  It is because our society has changed !!! And changed for the worse !!! … With more People off the rails, and being able to hide it even better, …. And less people helping them ???  …..

 

...  But God bless the Cops, !!!  Who now are getting VERY GOOD with IT !!! … And tracking people !!! .. So YES, thinking about it there probably IS a LOT less Successful abductions, as they always can track them down a lot better … BUT ? is there More attempts ??? …There seems to now be a lot LOT worse outcomes in some marital disputes ! ? ... The wife and whole family burnt alive in their car just recently in North Eastern Australia I think ?

 

… Like yes …. I will have to get the new tracking app myself also pretty soon …. To be able to finally get back home to still somewhat traditional Thailand I think ?  ...  And to my family there again !!! … And then set my Computer up there.  !!! Right ?

 

… …  Or well ? .... It might just be over population, leading to over crowding ! ? … Like too many Rats in the Box ??? Right ? and not enough condos to go around ! ???

I thought croissant originated in Austria ........ so surely it is a Viennese delicacy?

Can someone explain how the above highlighted word would upset anyone's " prissy sensibilities " ??

Cos I can't, clutching at straws again eh.

where originality and hopefully some humor might shine through the clouds of fear that cover almost all of humanity nowadays.   It seems to me almost impossible to imagine the lightweights of today ever trudging through the ice and rain with their wagons ,like the pioneers of the past.

heck, just a sniffle or loss of internet for ten minutes can send many to the suicide hotline.

Yes answered Well later on here below in these blogs, and with the post of Roosters original inspiration ... but just Briefly I would say that here in Thailand (Woops, I am actually still shut out of it I am afraid ... Ho hum) ... So, ... In Thailand  English language circles, the  highlighted word  "entrepreneur" would imply prostitution I think ?  Like also close to English Humor also I think ? ... Right Rooster ?

 

... Like way back when I used to live in Soi DonTong Larn, Soi Yipsong (22), off Sukhumvit, one of the girls that I used to platonically live with there, applied for her passport, and got it easily enough, but when she showed it to me, I did appreciate that Thai People DO have good sense of Humor, ... if they like to let it out !!! ...  as they had Listed her profession as "Merchant" Right !!! ..... (Like selling What ? ) ...  And well I think that for sure 5 foot high, but active +++ Gee, only ever had had one thing to sell !!! Right ??? .. And I DO wonder where she is now !!!  ... Like wen she nearly nailed one of her boy friends with the spike of her high heeled Shoe, in the over pass near Cowboy, ? or was it the old ambassador,  ? ... !!! ... I did realize that only being 5 foot tall did not preclude her from having a LOT of Passion !!! .... And I would now put a 50/50 bet on her, being in Switzerland, ? or Sweden my self ??? I think ? Right ...

“markie mark.... not sure you will have too many fans,  but rumak is one who appreciates a little rambling train of thought .   Poetic license and all,...” 

 

Thanks rumak, 

 

Yes I was a bit nervous about posting that one, like being 65 and parentless here in Australia, I AM very VERY careful posting subjects like that, AND occasionally, when talking to children in the street, or on public transport also, as, as Rooster said, the Modern .. Sensationalist ? Media has made it pretty dangerous to talk to children around here, when you are over 50 years old I think !!! Right ? …

 

And well so have the few ? creeps who are off the rails, and DO interfere with them, and younger Woman, often badly ! on occasion also, … though usually mot right out in in the open, on Public transport right ! ? … …. Like never talk to them if their parents are not there right. 

 

… And well, I just talk very loudly ! and obviously, and openly and state quite loudly that as I am 65 I have made it, I do think that I may have some wisdom, as well as entertaining things to say to them !!! ….  Like Treat them with Intelligence and brighten up their days !!! … In this very VERY over controlled world of ours now.  … But well you now ? … We always I guess have to be really REALLY Careful !!! … As being accused of being a pedo, is a pretty easy thing to accidentally have done to you these days I think.

 

… Those Bodies in the barrel looniest, well Criminal Murderers from Adelaide’s Northern suburbs, who recently killed the lower level victims around them, and put their bodies in barrels and then in the old Snow town bank vault, and told the locals that they were dead Kangaroos to explain the smell … Well they used to accuse all of their victims I think, of being pedos, as they tortured them, before killing them, and then stealing all of their social security numbers and subsequent dole checks ! … Like accusing them of being pedos was their excuse, before killing them, to steal their Dole checks !!! …

 

They obviously had been watching 60 Minuets right ? … Or the Chanel 7 Large camera in your face pap before they did it I would guess. ???

 

… So if I got any complaints about my considering of the subject of Children’s safety … which the activists have been discussing around me, on odd occasions since I was in High School … I was just going to report myself, and ask the moderators to delete it. …

 

But well you an obvious intelligent man, and well Roosters Column reeking of it, as well as a lot of Good Old English Humor right !!! … I will just leave it there I guess.

 

So well that is it for this one, …  and bring on the next Point of considered Discussion, next week ? and Thanks “Rumak” … Like is that Russian ??? … And Thanks to Rooster also, for the Forum.

 

Mark mark … Which is Thai right …. “Too Much Too Much.”

 

Ps. Just having thought about it like writing it then sleeping on it, is a REALLY Good way of forcing you self to think about it a bit better, ? Right …

 

I think that the Children in Australia are now MORE safe then before ! … As they are much better looked after ! BUT they have a lot LOT less freedom, as the Community and environment, as the IT De Humanizing, and reduction of “Neighborhood” and the “Too Many Rats in the box” situation, makes it Much MUCH More dangerous for them now I think,! …  So they HAVE to be looked after a Lot better !!! …

 

  But well in Australia? Well without a second of Doubt, or a thought that the Melbournie Fems, might just kick me in the Balls …. I DO think that of our social problems now in Australia, the most important one, and the one that needs to be addressed first … IS Violence against Woman !!! … And well the next ? …

 

… Well then you could investigate … Violence against MEN (Occasionaly Like me ?) I think !!! … Like the usually alcohol fueled bashings, in the city, and outside of Night clubs, and in entertainment venues in Australia, is just way WAY out of hand I think ? …. Like living in Thailand and spending time in Germany ! I have not seen it there, but well yes I think that it is way too much in abundance here right now. … … well in the so called danger zones any way I think ?

 

….  Though yes, ! …. I only see it on TV of course ! Right Mate ! 

 

… And See you. … Next Week ?

Yes answered Well later on here below in these blogs, and with the post of Roosters original inspiration ... but just Briefly I would say that here in Thailand (Woops, I am actually still shut out of it I am afraid ... Ho hum) ... So, ... In Thailand  English language circles, the  highlighted word  "entrepreneur" would imply prostitution I think ?  Like also close to English Humor also I think ? ... Right Rooster ?

 

... Like way back when I used to live in Soi DonTong Larn, Soi Yipsong (22), off Sukhumvit, one of the girls that I used to platonically live with there, applied for her passport, and got it easily enough, but when she showed it to me, I did appreciate that Thai People DO have good sense of Humor, ... if they like to let it out !!! ...  as they had Listed her profession as "Merchant" Right !!! ..... (Like selling What ? ) ...  And well I think that for sure 5 foot high, but active +++ Gee, only ever had had one thing to sell !!! Right ??? .. And I DO wonder where she is now !!!  ... Like wen she nearly nailed one of her boy friends with the spike of her high heeled Shoe, in the over pass near Cowboy, ? or was it the old ambassador,  ? ... !!! ... I did realize that only being 5 foot tall did not preclude her from having a LOT of Passion !!! .... And I would now put a 50/50 bet on her, being in Switzerland, ? or Sweden my self ??? I think ? Right ...

 

Thanks for the explanation, now it seems to make sense, but I have to say that even as a native English speaker I would never have associated the word entrepreneur with prostitution in a million years, my bad I suppose. :sorry:
