Taking an early morning jog along Mai Khao beach could be the best decision of 66 year old Yongyuth's life.

 

As the sprightly pensioner was skipping over the sands outside Mai Khao Dream hotel he came across a large round object, reported Daily News.

 

A prod with his finger revealed a smell that was a bit off but he recognised immediately that it could be whale vomit.

 

That's ambergris a substance much prized in the fragrance industry not for enhancing aroma but prolonging it.

 

A weigh in of his find revealed it was 19.5 kilograms and at the price of 1.5 million baht a kilo it could be worth almost a million bucks!

 

He is sending his find colloquially called "uak waan" (vomit of whale) to experts in Phuket to see if it's party time. 

 

The case is one of several reported by ASEAN NOW in recent years.

Seems to be a few whales getting sick in that area ........must be the water.

What is the purpose of whale vomit?  its used in the Perfume industry

Whale vomit, interesting to read that it goes into perfumes to prolong the scent of the female species, personally I prefer ala-natural, slightly off is ok, but no way will allow a women near me after she has had smelly fish as the aroma is enough to kill a whale.

First he must find a buyer that pays his millions dream sum.

Same with Buddha amulet. Theoretically worth a lot of money but you must find someone (stupid) to sell to.

In the UK you can come across 'vomit of whale like fat bird' on a Saturday night.....

Curiously, picking my way through the remains of ten pints of lager and a beef vindaloo on the pavement outside my local chippie on a Sunday morning has not made me a millionaire.....

Then have it weighed again after getting it back...

I recently walked close to a few foreigners. She probably took this whale vomit thing to personal and took a bath in it instead using the perfume.

They smelled like s....

Or this smelly fish sauce which is used every single day in my condo. How on earth can those girls eat this day in day out.

Just think how much you could make in Bangla off drunken Euro trash vomit if it was see to be of similar value!
