Remembering HIS MAJESTY

King BhumibolAdulyadej 1927 - 2016

13th October 2016 was one of the saddest days in the history of Thailand as one of the most loved and revered Thai monarchs of all-time, HM King BhumibolAdulyadej, passed away. It was an excruciatingly sad affair with an entire nation in tears and mourning ever since. One year on, it is time to reflect on the man who is now referred to as King Bhumibol The Great. It is Thai custom to take 1-year to fully honor and grieve for people with the standing of HM King BhumibolAdulyadej. Although the mourning period started the day he passed away, it is a Thai tradition that a king of such standing is not buried until a year after his death. Known as the 9th monarch from the Chakri Dynasty and the longest reigning monarch in Thai history at just over 70 years, HM King BhumibolAdulyadej, cut a very friendly and warm figure, seen as a father to all Thai people. He was known as a ling that brought all Thai people together and will go down in history as a prestigious figure for all Thais. HM King BhumibolAdulyadej was first proclaimed King Rama IX of the Chakri dynasty on June 9, 1946, after the sad passing of his brother Ananda, but wasn’t crowned until 1950. He finished his studies in Switzerland and then returned to Thailand to take over as the head monarch of the Kingdom. The rest, as they say, is history! Over the 70 years that proceeded, HM King BhumibolAdulyadej cemented himself in the hearts and minds of the Thai people and become not only one of the most loved Thai kings in history, but also loved and revered across the world. During his tenure, Thailand has managed to grow and develop into one of SE-Asia’s leading nations. He was a quiet man apparently who loved science, and especially loved music, which is evident with his interest in Jazz music and playing the saxophone. As we move into October, we will see lots of remembrance services for the late King and the entertainment zones across places such as Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket will be a little subdued and less overbearing in respect to his name. His funeral and burial will take place on the 26th October at the Royal Crematorium in SanamLuang. If you want to join in on the remembrance of HM King BhumibolAdulyadej throughout October, you can join in with the Thai people on wearing black clothing during this auspicious time. RIP HM King BhumibolAdulyadej.

Mark Gerry –

From Black Belt to Bangkok

I

f you are a keen fan of modern Kung-Fu flicks or you are an industry insider, you will undoubtedly know the name of Mark Gerry. Starring in several films throughout his career and performing as a stuntman, actor and entertainer, Mark has had an illustrious career. He was recently in Bangkok for the World Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame and also paid a short visit to Pattaya where we managed to catch up with this very intriguing person. The world of martial arts movies has always been filled to the brim with excitement whether we are talking about older Jackie Chan and Samo Hung films from the late-70s and early-80’s at the legendary Golden Harvest or when it penetrated mainstream movie culture in the 1980s in action films with Jean Claude van Damme and Steven Seagal. Over the past 20-years or more, we have once again seen a rebirth of martial arts movies that was kick-started by films such as Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and many

20

PattayaCityUncovered.com

Jet Li movies such as Legend. Martial arts movies have always wowed us to the core. Mark is also in Thailand promoting his new movie, Death Fighter, with Mark alongside Don ‘The Dragon’ Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock. “We filmed the movie in Thailand in 2012,” said Mark when talking to Dave D from Pattaya One recently. “But the film has only just been released and was originally called White Tiger, although it is now named Death Fighter”.


Death Fighter is Mark’s most recent film and over the years he has performed roles as stuntman and as an actor in many martial arts based movies. Some of his most popular appearances were in Sci-Fighter, Martial Medicine, Chasing the Dragon and Combat Mortal. Mark has also spent lots of time travelling the world performing at live martial art events. He has also spent the past 40-years teaching and training martial arts at seminars all over the world. Did you know that Mark is the highest-ranking Ryukyu Kenpo black belt on the West Coast of America? He is also a Grandmaster and ranked at 9th Degree. In 2006, Mark was promoted inside the Shaolin Temple in China to 8th Degree, and in 2012 was ranked as a 9th Degree black belt. Mark’s illustrious martial arts repertoire also include being an 8th degree professor at Kajukenbo, a 7th degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and many other accolades.

Although Mark Gerry’s notoriety is all martial arts based, this extremely interesting man is also a Guinness Book of Records holder for the “Most garters caught at weddings” with 16 garters in total. Aside from martial arts and movies and garter catching, Mark also has a keen interest in dancing the Tango, biking and swimming, scuba diving, cave diving, sky diving and all manner of high-octane adventures that you would expect from such a manly man. Mark’s heart and soul lies with his martial arts teaching, and has he told Dave D, “I love training the kids and seeing them develop their skills, which gives me a great sense of accomplishment.”. If you want to know more about Mark Gerry, we would recommend that you check out his new movie, Death Fighter, which can be found on all major websites across the internet such as Amazon.

things

a man visiting Pattaya should know

A

lthough lots of women and families visit Pattaya in their droves, over the years, the city has been known as a place where men can escape from the stresses of the modern world and act the fool for a while. On average men die ten years younger than their female counterparts, so it’s hardly surprising that when we party, we shake the earth. The only problem with visiting Pattaya is that you need to know some essential things so you can keep a firm grip on reality. Here are 3 things a man should know when visiting Pattaya. #1 – She loves me… she loves me not Although you do have the charismatic charm of Charlie Sheen and the intellectual wit of an Islamic Scholar, the fact that you have a hefty wallet that could choke a dozen donkeys is probably the reason why this sweet 21-yearold is all over you like dermatitis. Not that it’s a bad thing – it’s quite a good thing really. What heterosexual man wouldn’t want a sultry young Thai minx bouncing on their lap? Learn to see it for what it is – a business transaction so to speak. Sorry to douse your fire with water, but let’s keep a firm grip on reality here, we have not ascended into the realms of the fifth dimension just yet! Many European men have deep and meaningful relationships with Thai bargirls, but that is the exception to the rule, so be careful because these girls are emotional scientists. They might not have been to school but they press the right buttons with unnerving accuracy to part you from your money with new

and creative ways that evolve on a daily basis… you have been warned! #2 – Adam’s apple to be or not to be If you don’t know by now, you must have been living on a mountaintop in Patagonia or combating nautical nightmares beneath the ocean searching for Atlantis! Thailand is the spiritual home of the ‘third gender’, known across the world as ladyboys. I have a tried and tested theory that has never let me down yet: ‘never make love with a woman that can beat you at arm-wrestling’ unless of course that’s your thing, then I would say go for it! If you are in a bar and playing pool with a too-beautiful-to-betrue sort of women whose voice is deeper than the fiery pits of hell, then it’s probably a ladyboy my son. However, sometimes it’s not that simple, because even an old hand as such as myself can be fooled from time to time because they are very beautiful and hide their meat and veg very skillfully. Even my gaydar fails every now and then, so keep your wits about you! #3 – It’s just a game It’s just a game lads, don’t take things too seriously. Maybe a taxi driver is trying to scam you out of some extra cash, or those peddlers selling bits of wood that sound like frogs keep hassling you and won’t leave you alone, or maybe too many chilies in the food are giving you a bad stomach. Remember, it’s just a game really, so make the best of every day when you are here because who knows when you will be able to visit a city such as Pattaya again.

YOUR JOKES! I recently gave my girlfriend a Promise Ring and told her...I Promise, I will NEVER marry you.

grace and bows his head. A minute passes, and the boy is still deep in prayer, with his head down. 10 minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy. Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, “I had no idea you were this religious.” The boy turns, and whispers back, “I had no idea your father was a pharmacist.

I told someone I was single and they said, “How Single?” I responded Single as a surrogate mother, the day after birth. I recently stopped smoking ganja because it made me tired... Tired of Telling people... No, I am not Asian. A little girl goes to the barber shop with her father. She stands next to the barbers chair, eating a cake while her dad gets his hair cut. The barber smiles at her and says, “Sweetheart, you’re gonna get hair on your muffin.” “I know,” she replies. “I’m gonna get tits too” A blonde is driving through Florida on her way to Disneyland. As she gets closer she sees a sign that says, ‘Disneyland left’. So she turns around and goes home.

What’s the difference between a cop car and a porcupine? The cop car has its pricks on the inside. A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night and have dinner with her parents. Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that, after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time. Well, the boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms. The pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex. At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he’d like to buy, a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack. The boy insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all. That night, the boy shows up at the girl’s parents house and meets his girlfriend at the door. “Oh, I’m so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!” The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl’s parents are seated. The boy quickly offers to say

Husband: “When you die, I’m getting you a headstone that reads, ‘Here lies my wife, Cold as Ever’.” Wife: “Yeah? Yours will read, ‘Here lies my husband. Stiff at last!’ “

A man was driving along in his car one Sunday afternoon when he was pulled over by a police car. “Have you been drinking sir?” said the police officer. “No”, said the man, “Why? Was I driving badly?” “No”, said the Officer, “you were driving splendidly, it was the fat ugly bird in the passenger seat that made me suspicious.”

A brunette goes to the doctor and, as she touches each part of her body with her finger, she says, “Doctor it hurts everywhere. My leg hurts, my arm hurts, my neck hurts, and even my head hurts!” The doctor asks, “Were you ever a Blonde?” “Yes, I was,” she replies. “Why do you ask?” The doctor answers, “because your finger is broken!” Three mothers; a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead were all talking about their daughters. The brunette said; “I was looking through my daughter’s things and I found cigarettes, I can’t believe my daughter smokes.” The redhead says; “Ladies, I was looking through my daughters things and I found a bottle of liquor, I can’t believe my daughter drinks.” The blonde says; “I was looking through my daughters things, and I found a box of condoms. I can’t believe my daughter has a penis.”
