To Hull And Back Hua Hin Golf English Corner Il Duce

five years a look back to the birth of awol

hua hin, THAILAND The very first AWOL was published on 3rd October 2008 at a time of considerable political and economic uncertainty in Thailand and globally; domestically the ousting of Thaksin Shinawatra in 2006 was still causing repercussions such that our front page was warning that the coming high season could be the worst in memory, and while we can’t claim psychic powers, just a few weeks later the ‘yellow shirts’ occupied Suvanabhumi International Airport causing huge damage to tourism that year. While things have changed since then, there is a strange symmetry between then and now, with the shadow of Thaksin still looming large over Thai politics and a continuing global recession, albeit one that seems to be slowly dissipating. The Hua Hin area though is markedly different in many ways, having gone through and still experiencing an unprecedented building boom, particularly in terms of commercial and retail projects, alongside some major infrastructure improvements. The next five years are likely to see further development, as well as tourist and residential numbers growing, especially once the ASEAN Economic Union begins in 2015. Whether the next five years will also see the often mooted plan to make Hua Hin the capital of a new province encompassing Cha Am and Pranburi come to pass we cannot say, but we can say that even without an official classification the town will be regarded by most as a city within that time frame, and AWOL plans to be around to document it. Thank you to all our advertisers and readers for your support in the last five years - we hope to see you tonight at the AWOL Birthday Party! (see p 20)

stories street life By Roger Norwood A story that has been doing the rounds on Thailand forums hit the UK national press last week, with the reporting of the ‘hundreds’ of Westerners who are living on the streets in Thailand. The reaction on the forums was predictably a mixture of scorn, as in serves them right, and sympathy, with a large amount of debate centering on how these poor unfortunates had ended up where they are. Given the numbers of homeless people there are in Western societies, and how relatively few there are in comparison here, most fingers were pointed at what was seen as the likely common cause - a failed relationship where the Thai woman walked away with most, if not all, of the money

in the form of property or cars. To be fair it has also been pointed out that addictive substances also played a part, notably alcohol, but as that is a common theme amongst many homeless people worldwide, both the reactions, and the story itself have tended to focus on the ‘money grabbing Thai woman’ in the equation. While there is a different, or should I say more obvious, attitude towards money in Thailand, I don’t believe that there is a greater number of unscrupulous women/people here than anywhere else; I do think that there is more opportunity and temptation here though, along with a greater pressure on women in particular to ‘marry well’, i.e. to someone with money.

It is rare now in the West for women to have pressure put on them by their family regarding their choice of partner, whereas many women here (particulary those from poorer backgrounds) are under constant pressure, both from family and from themselves to provide for the family. It is ingrained into Thai girls that they must take care of their parents in particular, which is not necessarily such a bad thing, but when this extends to brothers, cousins, uncles and aunts, the pressure can become unbearable. Some live with it, but increasingly many are starting to reject it, particularly when they have siblings that don’t share the burden. Until that changes, we will probably see more homeless westerners ultimately paying the price.

texas, usa The human brewery: Texas man brews beer in his belly A tee-total Texan has given a new meaning to the term ‘beer belly’ after being diagnosed with a rare medical condition that gets him drunk without touching a drop. The 61-year-old suffers from auto-brewery syndrome, an unusual yeast infection that mimics the signs of intoxication. His wife feared he was a secret alcoholic as he would often wake up drunk and would suddenly appear sloshed at church or at work. He arrived at hospital five times over the legal driving limit complaining of dizziness before doctors eventually worked out his condition. ‘He would get drunk out of the blue,’ explained Barbara Cordell, the dean of nursing at Panola College in Texas. ‘On a Sunday morning after being at church, or really, just anytime – his wife was so dismayed about it that she even bought a breathalyse.’ An overabundance of yeast from foods such bread or pasta turned the patient’s stomach into a brewery, meaning he was unable to stay sober, the International Journal of Clinical Medicine reported.

chessington, uk Leopard print clothing banned at Chessington World of Adventures Leopard print clothing has been banned at Chessington World of Adventures amid concerns it is confusing the theme park’s animals. Animal print may be one of the hottest trends in the UK at the moment, but it has left rhinos and giraffes at the park’s new ZUFARI attraction in a muddle. Bouncers have been employed to enforce the zero-tolerance ban at the park after staff noticed a number of the animals trying to communicate with visitors or running away scared. Zebra, giraffe, leopard and African wild dog prints are among a number now banned at the zoo. Chessington officials have put the confusion down to the new 22-acre ZUFARI trail being a near exact replica of the Serengeti plains, meaning print-wearing guests puzzle the animals. ‘Since the launch of ZUFARI, guests have interacted with the animals more closely than ever before and we have noticed a lot of animals becoming baffled by animal-print-wearing guests,’ explained ZUFARI spokeswoman Natalie Dilloway. Guests who wear animal print will now be supplied with Chessington clothing when going on ZUFARI.

A section for all you budding etymologists where each week the origin of a word or phrase is investigated. This week it is..... Power corrupts; absolute power Primary amongst them was another English politician corrupts absolutely with no shortage of names - William Pitt the Elder, Earl Literal meaning. Absolute monarchies are those in which all power is of Chatham and British Prime Minister from 1766 to given to or, as is more often the case, taken by, the 1778, who said something similar in a speech to the UK monarch. Examples of absolute power corrupting are House of Lords in 1770: Roman emperors (who declared themselves gods) “Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those and Napoleon Bonaparte (who declared himself an who possess it” Acton is likely to have taken his lead from the writings emperor). ”Absolute power corrupts absolutely” arose as part of of the French republican poet and politician, again a a quotation by the expansively named and impressively generously titled individual - Alphonse Marie Louis de hirsute John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Prat de Lamartine. An English translation of Lamartine’s Acton (1834–1902). The historian and moralist, who was essay France and England: a Vision of the Future was otherwise known simply as Lord Acton, expressed this published in London in 1848 and included this text: opinion in a letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton in 1887: It is not only the slave or serf who is ameliorated in “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts becoming free... the master himself did not gain less in every point of view,... for absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” The text is a favourite of collectors of quotations and is the best natures. always included in anthologies. If you are looking for Whether it is Lamartine or his anonymous English the exact “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power translator who can claim to have coined ‘absolute corrupts absolutely” wording, then Acton is your man. power corrupts’ we can’t be sure, but we can be sure He didn’t invent the idea though; quotations very like it that it wasn’t Lord Acton. had been uttered by several authors well before 1887.

little johnny In school one day, the teacher decided that in science class she would teach about the elements. So she stood in the front of the class and said, “Children, if you could have one raw element in the world what would it be?” Little Stevie raised his hand and said, “I would want gold, because gold is worth a lot of money and I could buy a Porsche.” The teacher nodded and called on little Susie. Little Susie said, “I would want platinum, because platinum is worth more than gold and I could buy a Corvette” The teacher smiled and then called on Little Johnny. Little Johnny stood up and said, “I would want silicon.” The teacher said, “Why Johnny?” He responded by saying, “Because my mom has two bags of it and you should see all the sports cars outside our house!”

Mags Meanderings: From Som Tam To Mushy Peas

like clockwork Thailand will no doubt be watching events in Zurich closely in November. In typically efficient fashion the Swiss have come up with a novel way to regulate prostitution, which involves a cross between a garage sale and a MacDonalds drive through. The first row of 9 garage like buildings has been unveiled in Zurich. Due to be fully operational in November, the 1.5 million pounds stirling out of town development will only allow customer access by car, presumably to avoid the need for installing beds in the garage units. On entering the facility customers will drive past a row of 40 ladies before making their choice and negotiating a price. The ladies (I am assuming they will all be ladies, although other options may be available) will each have to pay 3 pounds 50 stirling (about 175 baht) per night to use a unit, which compared to a MamaSans’ cut of a bar fine seems very cheap. Opening hours will be more limited than customers in Thailand are used to, with the units opening in the early evening, and closing at 5 am. While the idea of providing an out of town location which can be controlled does make some sense, especially for the safety of the ladies involved, you have to wonder whether the Swiss authorities have really thought it all through. How will the ladies (or other options) be presented? Will they be seated behind a window Thai style with numbers strategically pinned to them? Will customers pass their orders via an intercom in a drive through booth? Then there is bound to be a rush of customers in the early evenings as people call in on their way home from work, which, with only 9 units available, could cause massive tailbacks. Waiting times could be even longer if one or two customers feel the need to take their time, or aren’t in any rush to get home to their kartoffel and egg. And how

will they manage closing time? Supermarkets make announcements before they close. ‘This store will close in 10 minutes - please proceed to the checkouts.’ We all know what panic that causes, and how we invariably miss an item on our list in the stampede to get out. Perhaps the Swiss facilities will at least give enough notice of closing time to allow for a cigarette. Or at least use cuckoo clock alarms in place of strident loudspeaker voices. Whatever customers reactions to Zurichs’ first custom built short time units might be, it is easy to imagine how Bangkoks’ finest might just be tempted to try a similar scheme. Perhaps in the car park of the Grace Hotel!

Eat in or Takeaway 081 455 5298 Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 The stars indicate that this is a good week to start up new and steamy romances. Your office’s sexual harassment policy, however, indicates otherwise. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 Long after the dust has settled, the smoke has cleared, and everyone has said their piece, you’ll still be standing there, asking a bunch of ridiculous questions. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 The little voices inside your head will continue to disagree over what to set fire to first. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 The stars would love nothing more than to reveal your future this week, but unfortunately, they’re just large luminous balls of plasma held together by gravity in space.

Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 You might be nervous and intimidated and even a little scared, but take heart: Those women are just as frightened of you as you are of them. Gemini May 22 – June 21 A popular new idiom will soon be coined, thanks to you, that broken-down apple pie cart, and all those quarters tumbling out of your ass. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 All the praying in the world can’t save you now. Quick, turn to demon worship and the black arts before it’s too late. Leo Jul 23 – Aug 22 Alcohol, a case of mistaken identity, and two screaming ends of a pantomime horse will figure heavily this coming Thursday.

Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 As an educator, you always hoped you’d make a difference someday, which just goes to show that no one is ever to old to learn something new. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 You will once again bring out the very best in your local police, fire, and sanitation control departments. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 Admitting to past mistakes is never easy, so it’s a good thing you happen to be an unrepentant bitch. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 Your hard work and dedication will finally pay off this week when you’re accepted into Harbard. Unfortunately for you, though, that’s not a typo.

sticking the boot in Di Canio regains control of Sunderland in military coup

sunderland, england PAOLO Di Canio has declared himself Sunderland manager-for-life following a brutal coup. The charismatic manager, who was fired for poor results on Sunday, stormed the Stadium of Light with tanks and helicopters before making an impassioned address on the club’s YouTube channel. He said: “It takes time to turn a club around and the players I have purchased this summer deserve a chance to settle in. That is why I have seized this club by force and have ordered a reel of piano wire for my talks with senior players. “No longer will this club operate under the communist rule of the FA. Where is the logic in winning a war and leaving your opponents to fight another day, or letting a player leave who then comes back to score against you with his unbroken legs? “Twelve points have been stolen from us this season. The communists might settle for the

loss of three points to West Bromwich Albion, but I say no! I say we must take those points back! “To this end I have authorised a low-level bombing raid on the Hawthorns, to be followed by a lightning strike by our infantry led by Lee Cattermole.” Fans gathered around Sunderland’s ground were thought to have hung effigies of

chairman Ellis Short and caretaker manager Kevin Ball from lampposts, until it became apparent that they weren’t effigies. Peterborough United, Sunderland’s opponents in tonight’s League Cup game, have confirmed they have received a fax from Di Canio requesting their unconditional surrender.
