flights to bangkok starting next month

hua hin, THAILAND Air services to and from Hua Hin airport are about to receive another expansion next month as Nok Air has announced flights to and from Bangkok’s Don Mueang airport. This follows last year’s introduction of international flights to and from Kuala Lumpur by Benjaya Air, although some reports have claimed this service has been unreliable. The Nok Air service will run three days a week, on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays with one flight in each direction and is obviously aimed at the weekenders from Bangkok. Flight times are as follows; depart Hua Hin at 8:10pm, arrival at Don Mueang at 8:50pm, and depart Don Mueang at 7:15pm, arriving in Hua Hin at 7:45pm. Unfortunately these times do not connect very well with other Nok Air services but the flights will still be a viable alternative to avoid slow trains or potentially risky, and sometimes lengthy, road journeys, particularly at weekends. The fares will appeal more to solo travellers than families, but are competitively priced from 1,299 baht one way, and depending on the required check in time before boarding could save a lot of time, with good transport infrastructure at the old international airport. The flights are due to begin on 15th November with a free baggage allowance of 15 kilos. The Nok Air booking page states that the planes operating on the route will be SAAB 340 jets, which can carry up to 37 passengers depending on configuration. Flights to and from the capital have been operated before, but unfortunately have never lasted long due to a variety of causes; however the growth of Hua Hin and Cha Am up to now and in the future should ensure that this service has a much better chance of taking off and staying aloft.

stories cursed luck? By Roger Norwood Every country has superstitions, with Western countries tending towards some universally accepted ones, such as it is bad luck to walk under a ladder, anything to do with the number 13, and opening an umbrella indoors, and some have an element of logic about them. Thailand has a plethora of superstitions that seem to vary depending on what part of the country you are talking about, but there are a few ‘standard’ ones that presumably began life for a good reason that has now been lost in the mists of time. The first one I cam across was one Wednesday many years ago in Bangkok when i was trying to find a barbers to get my hair cut;

tell your tales in thai with fun and easy tutoring

Don’t Be Tongue Tied! Fun, Easy and Affordable 1-on-1 Private Thai Lessons 080 321 5889

every barber I could find was shut, and I discovered subsequently that apparently it is bad luck to have your hair cut on a Wednesday! Another fairly commonly occurring belief is to do with which direction a bed, and consequently the people who sleep in it, lay; the head must not point towards the West as this is how corpses are laid out before cremation. Sweeping the house is another ordinary practice that can only be done at certain times according to another Thai superstition, or rather there is a time when it is bad luck to sweep, which is after darkness falls. Jinjoks, the small lizards that infest every house in the land, can be the cause of good or bad fortune, depending on the circumstances,

which are too many and varied to go into here. New borns and their mothers are also subject to some superstitious rituals, such as the shaving of the baby’s head, or mother and baby staying inside the house for one month to avoid any strong odours - apparently a strong whiff of something will cause the baby to be sickly during their life, although it behoves me to ask if the baby’s own emissions are excluded in this? Fingers crossed, and touch wood, none of the readers will either break any of these superstitions unwittingly nor suffer ill luck should they do so, but just to make sure, ‘break a leg’ and don’t mention Shakespeare’s ‘Scottish play’!

colorado, usa Is hotel that inspired Stephen King’s The Shining brave to dig up adjacent pet cemetery? The owners of the hotel which inspired Stephen King’s The Shining have decided that in order to accommodate the building of a new pavilion on its grounds, they are going to have to excavate none other than a pet cemetery – what could possibly go wrong? The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, first opened its doors in 1909, and has welcomed distinguished political and artistic figures, including King and his wife. After being immortalised in the horror book the hotel is still going strong, and has now decided to expand its wedding and corporate offering with another building on its land. The unfortunate pet cemetery which is in the way will have to be dug up and the graves will be moved elsewhere. The announcement hasn’t pleased believers of the supernatural, however. ‘Stirring up the bones of the dead’ is a recipe for paranormal disaster, local medium Rosemary McArthur told the Coloradoan. Problems with the construction such as burst pipes and delays could hinder the project if spirits that are stuck ‘between this world and the other world’ are disturbed, she added.

staffordshire, uk Fun-loving biker asks mourners to pay tribute wearing fancy dress Superman, Batman and the Honey Monster were among the mourners at a biker’s funeral. Those attending Gary Pattison’s funeral were asked to wear fancy dress to remember their friend, who one said had ‘a wicked sense of humour’. Also present among the 250 friends and family were Fred Flintstone, a Star Wars stormtrooper and Super Mario. They were greeted at the crematorium by a fire-breather and juggler before a final message from Mr Pattison that asked those who wanted to make a speech during the service to use words such as ‘bacon’ and ‘discombobulated’. He also wanted ‘what’s left of my savings’ to be put behind the bar, but no Beatles or Paul Weller songs were to be played. The 42,-year-old, of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, added: ‘In the words of Warner Brothers, “That’s all folks!” Enjoy and do me proud.’ The motorbike instructor died five days after he was involved in a collision near Leek on August 26. He leaves a daughter, Becca, 13.

Why guns are better than women #10. You can trade an old 44 for a new 22. #9. You can keep one handgun at home and have another for when you’re on the road. #8. If you admire a friend’s handgun and tell him so, he will probably let you try it out a few times. #7. Your primary handgun doesn’t mind if you keep another handgun for a backup. #6. Your handgun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo. #5. A handgun doesn’t take up a lot of closet space. #4. Handguns function normally every day of the month. #3. A handgun doesn’t ask , “Do these new grips make me look fat?” #2. A handgun doesn’t mind if you go to sleep after you use it. And the number one reason a handgun is favoured over a woman #1.

One afternoon they were told that the elevators were broken and they would have to climb 75 flights of stairs to get to their room on the top floor. Bill said, “The climb will go faster if we distract ourselves. I’ll tell jokes for 25 flights, Jim can sing songs for the next 25 flights and Scott can tell sad stories for the rest of the way.” Bill started telling jokes and didn’t stop until the 26th floor. Then Jim began to sing and kept going until the 51st floor. Then Jim stopped singing and told Scott to start telling sad stories. “I will tell my saddest story first,” Scott said. “Once upon a time there was a man who left his hotel room key in the car...”

Daily, weekly or long term English Hospitality An American tourist in London decides to skip his tour group and explore the city on his own. He wanders around, seeing the sights, and occasionally stopping at a quaint pub to soak up the local culture, chat with the lads, and have a pint of Guinness. After a while, he finds himself in a very high class neighborhood.....big, stately residences... no pubs, no stores, no restaurants, and worst of all... NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS. He really, really has to go, after all those Guinness beers. He finds a narrow side street, with high walls surrounding the adjacent buildings and decides to use the wall to solve his problem. As he is unzipping, he is tapped on the shoulder by a London Bobbie, who says, “I say, sir, you simply cannot do that here, you know.” “I’m very sorry, officer,” replies the American, “but I really, really HAVE TO GO, and I just can’t find a public restroom.” “Ah, yes,” said the Bobbie...”Just follow me”. He leads him to a back delivery alley, then along a wall to a gate, which he opens. “In there,” points the Bobbie. “Whiz away, anywhere you want.” The fellow enters and finds himself in the most beautiful garden he has ever seen. It has manicured grass lawns, statuary, fountains, sculptured hedges, and huge beds of gorgeous flowers, all in perfect bloom. Since he has the cop’s blessing, he unburdens himself and is greatly relieved. As he goes back through the gate, he says to the Bobbie “That was really decent of you... is that what you call “British hospitality?” “No” replied the Bobbie, with a satisfied smile on his face, “that is what we call the French Embassy.”

Mags Meanderings: From Som Tam To Mushy Peas

a new assignment As well as its climate, beaches, scenery and nightlife, Thailand is of course well known for its lady boys, or Katoeys, and has become a popular destination for foreigners seeking gender re-assignment surgery. That is the politically correct term for what we have always called sex change operations, so I’ll stick to what we are familiar with. It’s easier to type. A few thousand miles away Hull now has its own claim to fame, as the home town of the first double sex change couple in Britain to get married. If that sounds confusing - it is - though hopefully not for the couple involved, a man who has changed sex to a woman, and a woman who has changed sex to a man. They had both been married before, have 10 children between them, and met at a transgender support group. It is not uncommon for people to feel pressured or obliged to lead lives which they know aren’t right for them, and there are many, like our couple, who have had children before finding the courage to seek help with their gender issues. But the UK doesn’t have a very good track record in dealing with people who don’t fit society’s perfect mould. It isn’t so long ago for example that homosexuals were committed to asylums, and ‘treated’ with barbaric electro convulsive therapy in the belief that they were mentally ill. The first recorded Brit to have a male to female sex change was April Ashley (below, seen before as George Jamieson on the left), who travelled to Casablanca for the treatment in 1960. Whether the surgery was entirely satisfactory is unclear, but April achieved fame in the UK both as a model, and as a role model for other transgender people. With the rather surprising support of John Prescott she began to pave the way for change in the UK.

Despite that it wasn’t until 2004 that the countries Gender Recognition Act was passed, making it legal for the birth certificates and other documents of sex change

individuals to reflect their new status. Until then they were unable to legally marry - a problem which April herself had encountered. Other countries seem to have had a more liberal approach, with the first sex change procedure thought to have been carried out in Berlin in the very early 1930’s. The patient died from complications, but by 1952 surgeons in Denmark successfully operated on an American, George Jorgensen, who went on to live a happy life as Christine. Meanwhile the first such operation in the UK appears to remain a closely guarded secret, although April Ashleys’ trip to Morocco, and her subsequent campaigning, could provide a clue that she was unable to have her sex change done at home. Even now the process of gender change in the UK is long and arduous. With waiting lists, lengthy psychological assessments, and an overstretched National Health Service, it can take up to 10 years in some cases before the goal is reached. Little wonder that Thailand attracts so many foreigners who can afford to pay for private treatment. Whether it is wise for some foreign patients to rush into the final decision without the psychological support they would receive back home is debatable, but Thailand has established itself as something of a centre of excellence in the field. Rumour has it that the expertise of Thai surgeons developed from the need to re-attach so many penises which had been lopped off by the angry wives of unfaithful men. There is a ring of truth in that explanation, although there is also a very different attitude towards transgender than in the UK. Thailand’s ‘katoeys’ are accepted for what they are, whether they choose to remain somewhere mid gender, or eventually have a full sex change. There are always a few exceptions, but the typically delicate Thai features and build must help them to live in whatever way they feel comfortable. And if that includes entering the popular katoey beauty pageants then that too is not only accepted, but encouraged. It is difficult to write about some aspects of transgender without appearing to be prejudiced, which I am not. But it seems to me that those physical differences in appearance between Western and Thai can only help ease the way for Thai people undergoing sex transition. In the UK April Ashley was an exception, and is still a beautiful and graceful woman. Others, our newly wed double sex change couple included, never seem to quite look the part however hard they try, and however much they feel right in their true gender. Perhaps that is one reason for their long struggle for acceptance.

Eat in or Takeaway 081 455 5298 Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 Of all the plans you had for what you’d do with a million dollars, serving 12 years for grand larceny was probably last on your list. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 Admitting failure has never been your strong suit. Thankfully, this week’s stench will say more than mere words ever could. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 The stars predict the beginning of a lifelong romance this week, which just goes to show you how wrong the stars can sometimes be. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 What others think of you is a constant source of worry, so take heart in knowing that they rarely ever do.

Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 It might not be today, and it might not be tomorrow, but you’ll soon come to regret staging a pie-eating contest to choose a new nanny. Gemini May 22 – June 21 You will inspire a new Zen riddle this week when a tree falls on top of you in the woods and there’s no one around to hear all the screaming. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 Love can make a person do all sorts of weird and crazy things, but in your case, it’ll mostly involve showering. Leo Jul 23 – Aug 22 Exposure to bursts of gamma radiation will soon leave you with the tumor-growing ability of 10 regular men.

Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 While being replaced by a machine is never easy, losing your job to a common office stapler will prove especially difficult to take. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 There won’t be a dry eye in the house. That’s how tear-jerkingly funny your wedding will be. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 Doctors will diagnose you with a new strain of tuberculosis this week, or “Poor Unsuspecting Bastard’s Disease” as it’ll come to be known. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 You will come face to face with your worst fears this week after standing in front of a bathroom mirror.

Featured Game Saturday 5th October 2013 PREMIER LEAGUE Man City v Everton 18:45 With the form Everton have been showing, City should regard this as a crucial game to win, but it seems as though the departure of Moyes and Fellaini, and the shrewd buys made by Martinez have turned the Toffees from being the nearly men into genuine contenders. City have endured a mixed start and may well play a cautious game here, and we would not be surprised if this turns out to be a draw.

United fans enjoying novelty of detesting manager

manchester, england FANS of Manchester United are delighted to be launching their first campaign to sack a manager in almost a quarter of a century. The thrill of seeing their new team below Hull City in the league table has seen successjaded supporters revitalised by the chance to make Moyes Out banners. Fan Bill McKay said: “Over the years it feels like I’ve seen every club in the league run into the ground by comically incompetent managers while we sit on the sidelines waiting for our chance. “I have to admit, I’d given up even hoping. “But the buzz of seeing us outplayed by West Bromwich Albion in front of a wildly jeering crowd has made me think this could finally be our year.
