local charity gives kids a chance

hua hin, THAILAND Following on from last week’s front page about the efforts of private individuals doing good things in the community, we stay in the same vein this week as we bring you an update on a local charity run and supported by local expats and Thais who are making a real difference to the underprivileged children in the area. The Bright Dawn Foundation has been operating as a registered Thai charity for just over three years now, with a mission to provide healthcare and educational support to poor Thai children attending primary schools in the area surrounding Hua Hin. In that time they have raised and spent millions of baht, mainly on the core activities of healthcare/ wellbeing and educational support programs. Their most recent newsletter confirms the strides they have been making with 427 children now under their watchful care, and this year expanding their health check ups to include full eye tests for the children and teachers. Drinking water and toilet facilities have also been improved, and fun activities and days out organised. One of their key aims is to assist the children take and pass their high school entrance exams, and 31 out of 33 succeeded this year, opening a vital door of opportunity for them. For more information on the charity, and how you can get involved or donate, they have a comprehensive website at www.brightdawnfoundation. org or can be contacted by email at AWOL would like to congratulate Roger Perrin, Jill Moore and the rest of the foundation team on the work done so far, but they still have lots more in the pipeline, and we urge that those who are able to support this very worthy cause.

stories BATTER UP - part 1 By William Sparrow Being in Thailand for any period of time, whether on holiday or living here as an expat, means you quickly become aware of what a ‘katoey’ or ‘ladyboy’ is. Taking it to the technical jargon level you have the less welcomed terminology of ‘transsexual’. It should be understood that ladyboys can range from essentially gay men dressing in drag to post-op transsexuals who have gone through hormone treatment, sexual reassignment surgery – the unkindest cut of all for a man which he better be pretty damn sure of before going under the knife – usually followed by vaginoplasty to create a visually and functionally ‘real’ female vagina externally and internally.

If done well, the effect can lead a quite attractive female who again, is sexually functional. The dedication, treatment and cost of such a sexual transition, which at a minimum is going to run into hundreds of thousands of Baht and can reach to a million or more depending on various factors, consideration should really that person truly feels this is the right choice and path for the individual. When it comes to Thailand’s redlight districts a punter would be hard pressed to find a district that doesn’t have ladyboys as they are a fixture in the sex industry everywhere throughout the country. And as far as customers it is a matter of personal choice should they choose to be a ‘switch-hitter’ or just basically

being too naïve to know, in which case they could be in for quite the surprise if they are a gay in drag or a pre-op. On the other hand, a man who unknowingly takes a proper post-op may never realize their walk on the wild side. But at the end of the day in today’s modern society and sexual freedom what people do in their bedrooms is their business and completely acceptable. Next week explores the darker side of transexuals in Thailand. William Sparrow is a freelance writer, sex columnist and editor of He can be reached at captain.

new zealand Teacher censured after being caught stealing pupils’ lunches We’ve heard of pupils giving their teacher an apple before class but one educator appears to have misunderstood the age-old tradition. A tutor at a New Zealand childcare centre may be forced to do some detention after she was caught stealing food from her pupils’ lunchboxes. The woman was captured on CCTV helping herself to the packed lunches when children had complained of their food going missing, a Teachers Council complaints assessment committee heard. She was censured on a charge of serious misconduct after she was seen either putting the food straight in her mouth or in a plastic bag to eat later. The woman admitted the charge and had conditions placed on her practising certificate for five years. ‘She emphasised that she was trying to put this incident behind her, that there would be no repetition, and that she was hoping to move on with her career,’ the committee said. At the hearing, another teacher had his registration cancelled after threatening to kill his Year 11 students ‘down a dark alley’.

turkey A new cure for addicts? Turkish man locks head in cage to stop smoking Forget the gum, patches and e-cigs – one Turkish smoker is so desperate to quit smoking he has locked his head in a wire cage. Ibrahim Yücel, from Kütahya in the west 0f the country, is attempting to kick his 26-year addiction after his father died of lung cancer. The 42-year-old, who has been hooked since the age of 16, built the cage himself using 130ft of copper wire. The peculiar contraption allows him to breathe, eat crackers and drink through a straw, but has too fine a mesh for Mr Yücel to lift a cigarette to his lips. He locks the cage and gives the keys to his wife and daughter each time he leaves the house. Mr Yücel has not smoked in the two days he’s been wearing the helmet – a first for someone who has gone through two packets a day since he was a teenager. He has tried to give up several times in the past without success. He said the wire cage was inspired by the safety helmets worn by motorcyclists. After the initial shock, his family is now supporting his endeavour.

A section for all you budding etymologists where each week the origin of a word or phrase is investigated. deadwood they could pull down with a shepherd’s crook This week it is..... By hook or by crook or cut with a reaper’s billhook. This feudal custom was By whatever means necessary - be they fair or foul. ‘Hook’ is a word with many meanings and appears in recorded in the 1820s by the English rural campaigner numerous English phases, but ‘by hook or by crook’ is William Cobbett, although the custom itself long one of the holy grails of etymology; many people are predates that reference. sure they know the derivation but, in truth, the origin is Another suggestion is that the phrase comes from rather obscure. We can be sure that it is a very old phrase the names of the villages of Hook Head and Crooke, and that it was in general use by the late 14th century. in Waterford, Ireland. Hook Head and Crooke are on The first substantiated citation is from John Gower’s opposite sides of the Waterford channel and Cromwell (born 1599, died 1658) is reputed to have said that Confessio Amantis, 1390. : What with hepe and what with croke they [false Witness Waterford would fall ‘by Hook or by Crooke’, during the siege of the town in 1649/50. and Perjury] make her maister ofte winne. Some claim that the phrase derives from the celebrated [Hepe was the mediaeval name for a curved billhook] Gower didn’t use the modern ‘by hook or by crook’ English judge, Sir George Croke (or Crook), who was on version of the phrase, but it is clear that he was using the bench in the reign of Charles I (born 1600, died 1649) the reference to hooks and crooks in the same sense and became popular for his refusal to accept the legality of a ‘Ship Money’ tax imposed by Charles without the that we do now. The earliest example of the modern usage that can be consent of Parliament. It was commonly said that ship found is in Philip Stubbes’ The Anatomie of Abuses, money “may be gotten by Hook [that is, by force], but not by Crook”. 1583: Either by hooke or crooke, by night or day. It seems that the most likely origin of the phrase is that The last two both have merit but refer to events that are it derives from the custom in mediaeval England of later than the phrase’s first uses in print, so while the allowing peasants to take from royal forests whatever first isn’t a provable derivation, it is a strong favourite.

A true tale of courage and bravery This is a story to inspire you to reach for your dreams. Many years ago I came a close second in the Miss Brazil 1949 competition. Later that year I emigrated and was beset by a long period of bad luck. I suffered years of drug and alcohol abuse and a series of eating disorders. I lost a leg and needed facial reconstruction surgery after a road traffic accident. Later, I suffered 90% burns in an unprovoked acid attack. Several of my teeth were knocked out and an eye gouged in a bitch fight outside a Chicken Cottage. The stress caused severe hair loss and facial warts. But I never stopped believing. And then finally last week I was crowned Miss Scotland 2013.

Little Johnny - a life changing moment Little Johnny turned 17 and somehow managed to pass his driving test. One day he was sitting at a long red traffic light, minding his own business, patiently waiting for it to turn green even though there was no on-coming traffic. A carload of bearded, young, loud Muslims, shouting Anti-British slogans, with a half-burned Union Jack taped on the boot of their car and a “Remember 9-11” slogan spray painted on the side, was stopped next to him. Suddenly they yelled, “Aqbar Allah! Praise Allah!” and took off before the light changed. Out of nowhere an 18-wheeler truck came speeding through the crossing and ran directly over their car, crushing it completely and killing everyone in it. For several minutes little Johnny sat in his car thinking to himself, “Blimey...that could have been me!” So the next day, bright and early, he went out and got a job as a truck driver. sneaky A man brings his wife a glass of water and two aspirins.

Mags Meanderings: From Som Tam To Mushy Peas

summer days, cultural nights? Summer finally arrived in Hull during the second week of Wimbledon. On the Friday of the second week of Wimbledon to be precise. It was marked by the arrival of the fan in my office. Fortunately my colleague, whose desk is directly opposite mine, is all too familiar with my feelings about the fan, and thoughtfully positioned it to blast her full in the face. Even checking carefully to make sure there was no back draft to stray in my direction. This fan phobia is almost certainly the result of having spent a few years in Thailand’s climate. Not that fans are a problem there of course. They are necessary for much of the year, but are used sensibly. Usually a ceiling fan or a free standing floor fan at a constant gentle speed, is enough to prevent a build up of too much hot air. But in the UK people who have never needed to become acclimatised to year round heat tend to over react when the mercury reaches a comfortable 25 degrees, and, rather than leave a fan oscillating gently in an unobtrusive corner, they go straight for the full in your face instant icy blast. Meanwhile a few fortunate souls with nothing better to do on the day in question spread themselves out in the city centre to slowly toast. At a time of day when any self respecting expat would be contemplating a two hour full English breakfast, with the Nation and Bangkok Post, and perhaps a beer or three to tide them over until lunch, sun starved Brits armed with bottles of water and iPlayers laid claim to the nearest vacant patch of grass. To be fair, and contrary to popular belief, Hull does have a very nice green space in the city centre. Complete with a large fountain, lakes and ducks, it is the pride and joy of the Parks Department. Perhaps the elders of Hua Hin, with its’ beach on one side and views of hills on the other, didn’t feel the need for a public green space in the centre of town. Maybe land is too valuable to be wasted by not building on it. Or perhaps our tendency to have designated park areas in UK city centres dates back to Victorian times, when

factory workers needed somewhere pleasant to stroll in their ‘Sunday best’ on their one day off a week. Whatever the reason, Hua Hin’s authorities do a fine job with flowers and greenery wherever they can. My favourite time there is December, and the central reservations are filled with poinsettias and marigolds. But back to reality - and sun drenched Hull, which has somehow managed to reach the 4 cities shortlisted for the title ‘UK City of Culture 2017.’ This was greeted with a mixed response, veering markedly towards the ‘What..... (expletive deleted)’ end of the spectrum, with a fair number of ‘I’ll believe it when I see its’ in centre field. Quite what the honour involves is a mystery to most. True, we have a couple of theatres, a fair number of museums, and a marina. Not forgetting of course those lakes and ducks. But quite where the culture comes in has left all but the city elders guessing. Still, they seem determined to win the title, so the general consensus seems to be to let them get on with it. The full impact of this quest dawned on me as I was strolling into the ‘old town’ area for my weekly fix of cultural real ale. A car pulled up, and the occupants, clearly not locals, asked where they could find the restaurant area. In Hua Hin this is not a difficult question to answer. In Hull it is akin to getting through to the final round of ‘Who Wants To Be a Millionaire’. At 8 pm on a weekday night in the city centre it was an impossibility. Further along, another stranger to the city asked if they were heading in the right direction for Marks and Spencer, and while they were, any hopes of finding the store open at such an ungodly hour were quickly dashed. I must also dash any hopes of our editor - or our readers - for any learned or astute comments on the outcome of this years’ Wimbledon! While it is certainly popular, and requires a level of stamina, skill and dedication which most of us mere mortals will never achieve, it is always a relief to me when ‘normal service is resumed.’ Andy who?

smashing it up! Tennis stopped after britain wins

london, england TENNIS has been declared over following Andy Murray’s win. To preserve Murray’s status as the final and definitive champion, tennis has been discontinued and the Wimbledon complex bulldozed. The ground is being salted to ensure grass can never grow there again. Guard dogs wearing Boris Becker masks will patrol the 12-foot perimeter fence to scare off any potential racquet wielders. An LTA spokesman said: “Tennis is over now. Britain won. “We considered stopping after Fred Perry’s victory 77 years ago but his opponent was Baron Gottfried von Cramm who frankly sounds like character from Wacky Races.
