Flyboard Station

So how about taking a bit of brake from Pattaya's standard attractions and take off for a little flight above the sea? Yup, no jokes here, I'm quite sure you have seen these machines before: They pretty much consist of a board connected to a jet-ski which will allow you to propulse yourself up to 7 meters above the water.

KOH CHANG –THE GREENEST THAI ISLAND

Over the twenty years that I have visited and lived on Koh Chang, its evolution has been predictable but thankfully sympathetic.

Temple of a Million Bottles

Temple of a Million Bottles

It’s easy to see why Thailand’s been dubbed the Land of Smiles. But with literally tens of thousands of Buddhist temples or “Wats”, if you prefer the Thai word, scattered throughout the kingdom; a more appropriate epithet for Siam just might be the “Land of Temples”. Let’s face it, whether you’re a local, an expat or a day tripper – who among us has not been to at least one of Thailand’s many opulently gilded temples? These lavish, colorful, and sometimes gaudy places of worship attract millions of visitors annually and are remarkable sights to behold.

If you are just on an overnight or weekend trip here are a few helpful tips to ensure you keep your packing light.

Yes its easy to find travel size versions of most of your favourite items and you can hope that your hotel or guest house will supply you with shower gels, shampoo etc. – but what if they don’t? I’ve found that even the best hotels often leave a shampoo in the bathroom but rarely any hair conditioner.

TEE OFF IN HUA HIN

Not many golf course deals beat the one hatched on the Royal Hua Hin course in 1932. During a game Siam’s King Prajadhipok (Rama VII) was told that an alliance of bureaucrats and officers in Bangkok were demanding he replace Siam’s 700-year old absolute monarchy with a constitutional one. The King reportedly said to his companions, "I told you so," and played on. And thus began Siam-Thailand’s go-stop-go journey towards liberal democracy.

Now that the Durian or Tú rian season, which runs from April to August in Thailand, is once again upon us; every time I pass by the pyramid of hard, horny husked fruits piled high at the local fruit market, I feel compelled to mutter, “Hail to the King”. By “King”, I actually mean the ‘King of Fruits’ as the durian is known here in the orient. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, the Mangosteen happens to be the ‘Queen of Fruits’. Its taste is said to compliment that of the durian perfectly.

It beggs belief that by consuming a bunch of random raw ingredients that don’t really taste all that great on their own, even after being drizzled with a sticky sauce, and cradled in a somewhat bitter leaf, could possibly be the reason for jubilant celebration in respect to one’s taste buds – but it’s true. Whether eaten as a simple street snack or dressed up as a well heeled appetizer, the Thai concoction known as Miang Kham is considered by many devotees to be a one bite wonder.

They started at KISS Food Rompo Market across from Soi 5 on Jomtien 2nd road. They operated from a food cart, but it was clear they were different, with a full temporary kitchen set up behind the booth, proper chairs and tables, and an actual menu NOT in a plastic folder! Their presentation and food was above the street cart level for sure and was something you would expect to find in a much larger and expensive restaurant.

Yes, we all know that Thai’s love football just as much as most Europeans. This is prominently due to the global success of the EPL (English Premier League) plus the newly formatted TPL (Thai Premier League) being available on TV across the nation. Add to that the recent success of the National team winning the AFF Suzuki Cup, and you can see why the number of followers continue to rise. Yet even after this success Thailand are currently only ranked 142 in the world by FIFA, which is it’s 2nd lowest ranking since the this system was introduced in 1992. The highest position the nation has held was 45th back in 1998.

I am celebrating my 4th Songkran festival since moving to the Land of Smiles in 2012. Each one has had it’s own charm and has had a healing impact on my very soul. You see I have gone home for the holidays. I found my spiritual home in the province of Suphan Buri, and my Thai family resides there. They have brought me in as one of their own as if I have been with them a lifetime, and in many ways I have, since I feel like I didn’t really begin living until after my arrival in Thailand.

The road was clear; traffic light green. I was in such a good mood. We, my wife and I, had spent my birthday weekend in Bangkok. As I drove back towards Pattaya on the number seven road, a cloud flickered on the horizon. The flashing lights ahead could mean either an accident or police check. I was not unduly worried when it turned into the latter. I’d not strayed above a hundred once. I smiled as I handed my license to the officer. His emotions were difficult to read; besides the crotch hugging uniform, he wore designer sunglasses with reflective lenses. He was polite as he pointed out that my license had expired on my birthday, four days ago. I could not believe five years had slipped by since I first went to the License centre in Bang Lamung.

After he had devoured it he began lending it out to his classmates at ten or twenty baht a time. The price was dependent on the speed of the reader. Occasionally a reader went over his allotted time. Very occasionally Yongyut was forced to get physical to recoup his book or the extra money. His father never knew of this side of the business.

It is a necessity for all car owners, airlines, and for a large part of the industrialised world.

The best 3D programs are the ones that allow you to take a virtual walk through your newly created space so that you can view the finished project from any angle. Be sure to find a program that has good lighting options as this will be key to getting the interior space just right. Also try to find a program that has enough detail such that you can model your own furniture pieces instead of just dragging them in from preset libraries.

Add two showers, four or so hand washings, three teeth brushings and at least six or more additional trips that cover a whole host of other possibilities, such as flossing, plucking, preening, shaving, clipping, trimming, waxing, coiffuring, inspecting, the application of cosmetics, ointments, gels, and sunscreens, first aid and occasionally some light reading.
