english expat killed in motorbike crash

hua hin, THAILAND Family and friends of Daniel ‘Chalky’ Howlett were left devestated this week as the partner in the All Nations Guesthouse was killed in a motorbike accident on his way home in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The incident occurred at about 1.30 am as Daniel was driving home on his motorbike, with friends on two others alongside. Shortly after turning off the Pala-U Road towards Black Mountain he went to the front of the convoy and his friends watched in horror as another motorbike appeared from a side road and smashed into his bike, throwing him from it. Both riders suffered serious injuries and Daniel was declared dead shortly after being taken to hospital. An autopsy will be carried out, but it is thought that a broken neck and spinal cord damage were the fatal injuries. Sadly the crash helmet that he religiously wore could not protect him. The 16 year old driver of the other bike had a passenger who fled the scene, something he himself could not do as he had suffered at least one broken leg and possibly two. Police investigating the accident revealed that the boy had no driving licence or insurance. It was not clear at press time if any further action was to be taken. Daniel’s parents and sister were contacted very soon after the accident but it is too soon for a decision to be made regarding the funeral, however a service will be held in Hua Hin either way - anyone wanting information on this should contact Martin or Neil at All Nations. The British Embassy are assisting with any arrangements that need to be made. Chalky was a lively, fun loving guy who made friends easily and was making a great life here in Hua Hin; AWOL sends our sincerest condolences to his family and numerous friends. We will all miss you Chalky.

A section for all you budding etymologists where each week the origin of a word or phrase is investigated. This week it is.... Come a cropper Fall over or fail at some venture. The word crop derives from the Old Norse word kropp, which was the name of a hump or swelling on the body. The OED graphically describes a crop as a ‘swollen protuberance or excrescence’. This later modified into meaning any swollen or rounded item, for example, a bird’s gullet, the seed head of a ripe plant (the source of the word crop as applied to cereals etc.) or, spelled as croup, the rear end of a horse - also called the crupper. ‘Come a cropper’ is one from the list of British phrases that is associated in the popular imagination with Victorian inventors. These include the various phrases based on the name of Thomas Crapper, the sanitary engineer and ‘bats in the belfry’, reportedly coined after George Bateson. Henry Smith Cropper is the man supposedly the source of ‘come a cropper’. Unlike Bateson, who turns out to be an invented inventor, Cropper, like Crapper, did actually exist. Indeed he was a prominent enough citizen to become Sheriff of Nottingham. He didn’t occupy his time in chasing outlaws around the local forests though. H. S. Cropper and Co. began selling the Minerva platen printing press in 1866. It was a successful design and before long all platen presses were known as croppers. It is suggested that ‘come a cropper’ derives from the accidents that print workers had when catching their fingers between the plates of the presses. Like the Bateson story, this is an appealing tale. There’s no truth to it though - it’s just another invention. For the actual derivation we need to consider the nether quarters of a horse - the croup or crupper. In the 18th century, anyone who took a headlong fall from a horse was said to have fallen ‘neck and crop’; for example, this extract from the English poet Edward Nairne’s Poems, 1791:

Mighty Mike’s Partystarter Specials from 6 - 9pm

A man on horseback, drunk with gin and flip, Bawling out - Yoix - and cracking of his whip, ... The startish beast took fright, and flop The mad-brain’d rider tumbled, neck and crop! ‘Neck and crop’ and ‘head over heels’ probably both derive from the 16th century term ‘neck and heels’, which had the same meaning. ‘Come a cropper’ is just a colloquial way of describing a ‘neck and crop’ fall. The phrase is first cited in Robert S. Surtees’ Ask Mamma, 1858: [He] “rode at an impracticable fence, and got a cropper for his pains.” By the time John C. Hotten published his A Dictionary of Modern Slang, Cant, and Vulgar Words in 1859, the phrase has come to refer to any failure rather than just the specific failure to stay on a horse: “Cropper, ‘to go a cropper’, or ‘to come a cropper’, i.e., to fail badly.”

leicestershire, uk Star Wars fans raise £75,000 to build a Death Star It’s a project that is unlikely to see the light of day. But that hasn’t stopped hundreds of Star Wars fans stumping up £75,000 (3.5 million baht) to build a Death Star. A plea for cash to construct a moon-sized planet destroyer with a single annihilating energy beam went out on crowdsourcing website Kickstarter. said the superweapon is needed in the light of ‘continuing threats’ against Earth. In just two days, 515 supporters pledged cash – despite the group making clear it’s all a joke. For the project to go ahead, it needs to raise £20million… by April 1. The site promises a thank you and ‘the knowledge that we’re one step towards a safer planet’ in return for £1. Leicestershire-based took up the campaign after a petition to the US government fell on deaf ears. The White House said: ‘We don’t have a Death Star, but we do have a president who knows his way around a lightsaber.’

belgium Chocolate stamps launched by Belgian postal service Chocolate stamps have been launched by the Belgian postal service to celebrate the country’s popular national delicacy. The stamps taste and smell of chocolate, unofficially confirming the country’s status as the finest chocolatiers on the continent. ‘We have added a chocolate taste to the glue of the stamps… which you can taste when you lick it,’ the Belgian postal service said. ‘The stamps are also imbued with the smell. ‘It was not easy to get the scent and flavour of the dark chocolate right. In the end, people from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland all worked on it. ‘It is not the first scented stamp … but this time it has been combined with a flavour.’ The series of five stamps will cost €6.20 (250 baht) and are set to go on sale in time for Easter on March 25.

stories Welcome to this new regular column, penned by an expert on Thailand and it’s ways, William Sparrow. While there will be an emphasis on the topic of sex in Thailand, the column will cover a variety of other subjects, including business, politics, celebrities, corruption and more. Bad Moon on the Rise By William Sparrow For nearly five decades, the beaches of Thailand’s Koh Phangan have hosted the Full Moon Party that became popular with the young backpacking culture. Travel guides and websites give the island and the monthly party a hippy inspired aura of sixties-seventies free love indulgences, alcohol-fueled debauchery and drug-induced decadence. Times have changed, but the party rages on with young women donning tiny bikinis downing buckets of hard liquor and energy drink mixers, punters pop pills, chug shakes with hallucinogenic mushrooms and smoke cannabis as if it were legal. In recent years, a more affluent younger generation of travellers has filled the beaches seeking a quite literal escape from reality, inhibitions melting away as cocktails are drained and drugs take effect. Most visitors to Hua Hin and expats who have chosen to call it home

Undercover Thailand: Sex, Sin and Smiles

are likely to be quite grateful not to find young tourists who have overindulged urinating into the sea in the darkness of night or couples so inebriated that they have sex on the sandy shores oblivious to onlookers.

It is the premiere party island for sure and with this designation comes the inevitable laundry list of arrests, fights, accidents, scams and crime. Drug busts are almost as common as stories about police – or people impersonating police – shaking down tourists for pay-offs just moments after having bought drugs. With an average of three sex attacks at each monthly Full Moon Party, sexual assault is not uncommon as the case of an Israeli woman who was gang-raped on a secluded part of the beach demonstrated during the party that coincided with New Year’s Eve about a month ago. On the same night, things would come to a head and gain international media attention when a 22-year old British traveller was shot dead by

a stray bullet from a gang dispute between Thai locals outside the bar. Stephen Aston was from Purley, south London and was a hardworking investment broker who, as he danced the night away, was struck by the bullet and died on the dance floor of the island’s beach bar Zoom. While probably thankful not to be home to a monthly event like the Full Moon Party and descended upon by drunken revellers Hua Hin and the people here, like any community in today’s modern world, is not immune to crime, random violent acts or simply bad luck that can strike anyone. Wheels of justice grind as they will but the tragedy on that moon-lit night weeks ago on Koh Phangan, or cases of friends and loved ones lost closer to home here in Hua Hin can at least serve as a reminder to us to take due care, cherish those around us and to celebrate responsibly.

She was very shy about having to sell condoms to the public. The owner was going on holiday for a couple of days and asked if she would be willing to run the shop on her own. She had to confide in him her worries about selling the contraceptives. “Look,” he said. “My regular customers don’t ask for condoms, they’ll ask for a 310 [small] a 320[medium] or a 330[large]. The word condom won’t even be used. The first day was fine but on the second day a black guy came in to the shop, put out his hand and said “350”. The girl panicked. She phoned the owner on his mobile and told him of her predicament. “Go back in and check if he has a yellow bucket hanging between his legs” her boss told her. She peeped through the door and saw the yellow bucket hanging between his legs. “Yes!” she said “ He’s got one hanging there!” The boss said “Go back in and give him £3.50, he’s the window cleaner!”

BLUE LAGOON TROPHY The third installment of the Blue Lagoon Trophy took place in the Blue Lagoon Guesthouse and Bar on Saturday February 9th, and was another great event. A thrilling game saw the two teams locked at 7 - 7 at the end of the scheduled games, which required a playoff to settle things. The Hua Hin team managed to clinch the win in the playoff and triumphantly haul the trophy home until the next event. Congratulations to all who took part in what was a great day, and a special thank you to Stuart and his team at Blue Lagoon who were excellent hosts.

Eat in or Takeaway 081 455 5298 Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 Everything you touch will soon turn to gold, giving the cops a glittering, sparkling trail of nine-yearolds to follow. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 Your defense lawyer is one of the best, but he will have a hard time blaming those 11 murders on the bossa nova, the dance of love. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 You are in grave danger of losing whatever credibility you had as a psychiatrist, which is strange, as you’ve been in floorcoverings for 17 years. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 You’re beginning to wonder exactly who is in charge of quality control for all those treasure maps.


Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 An otherwise enjoyable week is shot to hell when you have several phone conversations with people from Pattaya. Gemini May 22 – June 21 You’ve never been one to take offense at accusations of arrogance, especially since they’re all absolute rubbish anyway. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 It’s impossible for you to get more tail than a dogcatcher—partially because of your poor hygiene, but mainly because you’re a dogcatcher. Leo Jul 23 – Aug 22 You will abandon your search for the wisdom of the East when it turns out to be devoid of cool kung-fu moves.

Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 Good things will happen when you least expect it, greatly embarrassing you while you’re trying to enjoy a number 2 in peace. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 Having a girl pop out of the birthday cake was a fine idea, but you really should have given more thought to when the cake is cut. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 Next week will feature family scandal, almost a dozen murders, a drowned girlfriend, and lots of manic depression, yet it’s not in any way based on Hamlet. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 You will suffer dire consequences after toying with powerful forces you do not understand, namely gravity.

walk on Liverpool’s Row Z public liability insurance slashed as Carragher announces retirement

liverpool, england Liverpool’s public liability insurance for Anfield fans sat in rows above ‘W’ will drop significantly next season, after Jamie Carragher announced his retirement. Club owner John Henry hopes the reduction in insurance costs could free up funds for manager Brendan Rodger’s rebuilding programme, whilst insuring a more relaxing match-day experience for fans in Anfield’s cheapest seats. Henry told the club website, “Jamie has been a magnificent servant to the club for many years, sometimes single-handedly displaying a rear-guard action that has had our fans ducking left right and centre to avoid his exquisite ‘passes’.” “I’m sure most of our loyal fans will have a smile on their faces as they recount the similarity between being sat watching a Liverpool XI containing Jamie, and the kind of evasive manoeuvres required to avoid an absolute pasting at paint balling.” “We wish Jamie all the best for the future, and

dead pedestrian, and they charge you less accordingly.” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was quick to second the clubs owner, and pay his tributes to Carragher. “Our supporters won’t be shy in telling you that Carragher redefined the club’s pass and move philosophy.” “When Carra passes, the supporters move – out of the way and as quickly as possible.”
