Hey, lonely – learn to love yourself By Chatrarat Kaewmorakot Writer for Channel 3’s ‘Sud Daen Huajai’ soap opera

W

ith Valentine’s day approaching, single people out there will be feeling lonelier than usual and perhaps needy for love. But it’s important to understand that love is not about finding someone to fill the emptiness inside us. We have to “fill” ourselves first, so that the love in us can pour out and be shared by others.

Prowling for love Thailand’s favourite popsters, Pink Panther, join up with today’s crooners to give this year’s Valentine’s Day a musical welcome.

The fight broke out only days after a truce ceremony on January 28, when students from the two schools shook hands and exchanged flowers.

Taunted by their opponents outside, some 50 Uthentawai students burst out of their school and the battle began in earnest in front of the Pathumwan Princess Hotel and shopping plaza at around 4pm. It lasted for about 10 minutes, with stones and knives used and students reportedly shooting guns into the sky before po-

lice arrived and dispersed them. The shopping malls closed its doors for the safety of customers but rocks shattered a section of the third entrance’s glass door while two cars parked near the scene were also damaged. Pathumwan Police superintendent Colonel Paisal Leusomboon said police were looking at security camera footage in an effort to bring the culprits to justice. He added that teachers of the two schools would meet today to discuss the student brawls.

Treasures get returned The Culture Ministry has approved the return of seven smuggled Khmer artefacts to Cambodia, pending a final decision from the Cabinet soon. Culture Minister Teera Slukpetch said yesterday that he had sent documents relating to the sculpted head of a god and six giant stone busts to the Cabinet Secretary’s Office and the next step was for the Foreign Affairs Ministry to present the case to Cabinet. Fine Arts Department chief Kriengkrai Sampatchalit said that another 36 artefacts claimed by the Cambodians would not be returned until sufficient evidence of their origin could be found. The department is currently examining 100 artefacts seized by Thai customs in an effort to discover which country they belong to, he added.

Bangkok buses to go green The authorities will this week finalise the decision to lease natural-gas powered (NGV) buses for Bangkok commuters, Deputy Transport Minister Prajak Kaewklahan said yesterday. Prajak said the project might be scaled down from 4,000 to 3,500 buses and that the bus routes might be revised to boost efficiency.

briefly Cash sweeter than chocolate

AGENCIES

Cash is the unromantic but preferred Valentine’s Day gift this year as the economic downturn bites in South Korea. In contrast to other societies, women traditionally give single men gifts to mark February 14. The Korea Herald, citing a survey by a local matchmaking company, said 27 per cent of the male respondents opted for cash, while 13 per cent chose travel-related presents. Twelve per cent wanted a wallet, rather than something to fill it with, but only 7 per cent desired chocolate. Korean men give women presents on March 14, known as “White Day”. – AFP

Family members react after learning that their parents Bill and Faye Walker, along with their disabled brother Geoffrey, were among the victims in Marysville, north of Melbourne, right.

To die or not to die Following the controversial death of Eluana Englaro, a comatose woman at the centre of a right-to-die debate in Italy, lawmakers said yesterday they would seek to introduce legislation on so-called “living wills”. Proposals mentioned differ in the extent to which people could use such documents to specify before their death what type of medical treatment they wish to receive. The documents would be used in the event of a person falling into a vegetative state, like Englaro. The move followed a decision by PM Silvio Berlusconi’s conservative government to withdraw a parliamentary bill it had specifically drafted in a bid to save Englaro’s life. The 38-year-old died on Monday night, four days after doctors, acting on a court order, removed tubes which had been supplying her body with nutrients and water. – DPA

‘IT RAINED LAVA’ Survivors of Australia’s worst firestorm recall their battle with terror AFP, Healesville, Australia

I

knew people were dying around us,” says Annette Smit, describing the firestorm in Australia that destroyed her home and almost cost her life. “It rained [fire], it was like lava,” she says in one of the compelling stories of survival that have transfixed Australians as the nation’s worst wildfire disaster unfolds. “You couldn’t see where you were going, the only thing you could see was the road.” A resident in one of the worst-hit towns, Victoria’s Kinglake West, Smit and her partner were preparing to flee in their car when the car exploded in the inferno’s intense heat. Peter Trapp from nearby Lower Plenty, who had sent his wife and child to safety, ran to

his neighbour’s house after failing to save his own home from the flames. “When I was running it radiated heat, I could feel my skin burning,” the 41-year-old says. Trapp and his family made it through their ordeal, though their home was razed.

Lost lives Australia’s newspapers were filled with pictures of the dead and missing, a total of 181 confirmed dead that is set to rise significantly. There were poignant snapshots of the victims’ lives, showing them celebrating weddings and smiling in class photographs. There were also pictures of blackened terrain and horses that survived the inferno searching for food in the charred soil. Ian Creek tells Melbourne’s

Age newspaper how his parents-in-law, Faye and Bill Walker, perished along with their wheelchair-bound son Geoffrey as they tried to flee. They nearly made it. Creek said the key was in the car’s ignition and the family pet had been packed into the vehicle when the flames engulfed them. “The dog was found in the back seat,” he said. There were rare stories of joy too. Bill and Sherrill Carta were reunited in the emergency ward of Melbourne’s Alfred Hospital after becoming separated fleeing the Kinglake blaze. The Telegraph ran pictures of St Andrews resident Angela O’Connor rolling on the ground with her dog Chaz, who had been found still guarding her property two days after her house burned. “He’s an amazing boy,” said O’Connor, who lost another dog in the fires.

Police in East Java province have closed a clinic run by a nine-year-old child believed to possess healing powers after four people died while queuing for treatment, an officer said yesterday. Two patients died on Monday while lining up with thousands of others at the house of Muhammad Ponari, who has been called “child witch doctor”, said officer Muhammad Indra. Ponari caused a stir after he found a stone believed to have healing powers, Indra said. He treats his patients by dipping the stone in water and having them drink the liquid. It’s not clear if anyone has been cured. – DPA

LYRICS OF LOVE Five celebrities reveal the songs they’d choose to croon to their sweethearts this Saturday

Luk thung singer Nipaporn “Kratae” Panguan

Bangkok gubernatorial candidate Leena Jangjanja

“There are lots of different ways of loving. I’ve devoted most of my time and my love to my parents because I want them to be better off. I’d give my mother a big hug on Valentine's Day and choose the song, ‘My Heart Will Go On’ from the movie ‘Titanic’, which talks about true love and sacrifice.”

“I love Valentine’s Day! Last year I took part in the Queen of Valentine’s Day parade to Siam Paragon. This year I’ll either take a group of katoey actors from Poj Anon’s movie, ‘Nak [Taew] Tae Teen Raberd’ to parade along Silom Road and hand out Valentine cards or I’ll dress as a fairy maiden and ride on a vehicle decorated with roses. And I’ll sing my own composition, which is called ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’.”

Film director Poj Anon “We should value our love for each other and make a point of saying ‘I love you’ to those that we love. We don’t need to wait for Valentine’s Day to say it, either; we should express our love every day. If I have to choose a song, it would be Groove Riders’ ‘Ther Thang Nan’ [‘Only You’]. The lyrics say it all.”

Pop singer Tanaporn “Parn” Wagprayoon

Actor Peerawit “Un” Bunnag

“I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day as I don’t believe that there is one single day that can make everybody love one another. It’s just a gimmick. What’s important is showing love every day. My favourite love song is Diana Ross’ ‘When You Tell Me That You Love Me’.”

“It’s not enough to talk about love on Valentine’s Day. We need to say ‘I love you’ every day. I usually give my parents a big hug and tell my friends to take special care of each other. My song is Bee Peerapat’s ‘Kham Samkhan’ [‘Important Word’] from the movie soundtrack ‘Before Valentine’, which is all about how important loving words are.”

eeny-boppers erupted in thunderous screams last Saturday as South Korea’s leading pop acts arrived at Rajamangkala National Stadium for “SM Town Live ’08 in Bangkok”, a concert originally scheduled for the end of November but postponed after Bangkok’s airports were closed by protesters. More than 30,000 fans showed up, posing for photos with the posters of their Korean heroes and playing games to win souvenirs. The five-hour concert had sets by SM’s newest boy band SHINee and Girls Generation before stimulating the audience with Dong Bang Shin Ki’s smash hits “Hug” and “Love Is” and Super Junior’s Eunhyuk’s “One Love”

featuring Dong Bang Shin Ki’s Xiah. Dong Bang Shin Ki also performed their singalong tracks “U”, “Purple Line” and “O”. Bringing the house down was Super Junior, with “Don’t Don”, “Happiness” and “Wonder Boy”. Birthdays were celebrated on stage, with a cake for Dong Bang Shin Ki’s Changmin and Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, Hangeng, Siwon; as well as soloists Soo Young and Jang Li Yin. The concert wrapped with all the SM artists singing “Hotmail” and “Red Sun” and indulging in a pre-Songkran soaking. Super Junior

soopsip White House wear-monger The fact that US first lady Michelle Obama was wearing an outfit designed by local-boymade-good Thakoon Panichgul at her husband’s inauguration was a Thakoon knockout bit of news. Even better was the media sentiment that having Michelle in the relatively unknown dressmaker’s Radzimir kimono while Barack took his oath of office – rather than in a big-name gown – reflected the president’s agenda for change. Thakoon is based in New York, has a line in the popular Target retail chain, and celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker have worn his gear, but this is a truly massive addition to the old CV.

This girl will drink anything

The green-eyed Volvo S80 2.5FT is the first mass-market car in Thailand that can take on any blend of fuel By Vijo Varghese D A I LY X P R E S S

S

o here it is – this car could be the first in a long line of vehicles that will change the future of energy in Thailand. This is the Volvo S80 2.5FT. It’ll run on any blend of ethanol, up to 85 per cent, so you won’t have to feel guilty about creating an earthquake in Bangladesh every time you start your car. (Scientists say that sucking oil from the Earth’s crust increases earthquakes.) The S80 2.5 FT is the first vehicle in Thailand that can run on such a high blend of ethanol. Previously, the high-

est blend available in any mass-market car was E20. What’s so special about fuelling up with ethanol? Well, it comes from sugarcane and cassava, which are locally produced and, most importantly, renewable sources of energy. The biggest advantage of the S80 2.5FT is that it can use any kind of fuel, from regular 95 and 91 octane to E10 and E20, more commonly known as gasohol. A super-smart computer on board senses the blend of ethanol in the fuel and controls the air accordingly. But it’s not the computer that makes the S80 2.5FT a

,,

THE BIGGEST ADVANTAGE OF THE S80 2.5FT IS THAT IT CAN USE ANY KIND OF FUEL,FROM REGULAR 95 AND 91 OCTANE TO E10 AND E20. sexy green babe: It also has specially designed fuel pipes, fuel tanks, injectors and pretty much any part of the vehicle that ethanol touches. So don’t try to fill your car up with E85, because ethanol is corrosive, and it won’t be long before your regular car has holes all over. For now, however, there are only three gas stations in Thailand that have E85. Nothing in the S80 2.5FT will let you know that it’s running on the green stuff, except for the badge on the rear. There are no special gauges, just the usual tachometer and speedometer, and Volvo’s super-sleek floating console. Volvo thus becomes the only choice for premium buyers who plan to travel around Bangkok quite a bit, since both Mercedes Benz and BMW need pure 91 or 95 octane. Want to make the world a greener place? Well, at Bt3.1 million, it’s not that tough a choice for premium-brand customers. Will Toyota, Honda and Nissan follow suit?

GONE IN 7 MONTHS Scolari steam-rollered by the sheer relentlessness of the English game THE GUARDIAN, London

L

uiz Felipe Scolari was on the way to acquiring the full thousand-yard stare that only the special branch of bedlam known as the Premier League can inflict on managers, however illustrious, however crocodile-skinned on first inspection. Arriving on our shores to take over from the saturnine Avram Grant, Big Phil might have been mistaken for Brazil’s ambassador to London. He had read all his briefing papers about the cliques and the turmoil of the Mourinho-Grant years and was intent on instilling unity and calm. But then it hit him: the whirlwind of fixtures, the endless churn of headlines, the crowd volatility, the sheer relentlessness of problem-solving at the top of the English game. Under this bombardment he acquired an ominously robotic look as his vision of liberating Chelsea’s creativity began to

look like a bad case of meddling with a fixed identity. Some will think it a mark of shame for the game in this country that a World Cup–winning coach can be crushed like this after 25 league games. Scolari went faster than an England batsman in the West Indies and Chelsea have now worked their way through four managers in five years. Claudio Ranieri is coaching Juventus, Chelsea’s next Champions League opponents, and Jose Mourinho is steering Internazionale to more success. Scolari plunged into the inferno within seven months. Some would say the problem is with the club, not the A-list managers who say yes to the task of reconciling Roman Abramovich’s whims with the commercial cravings of the board and assorted in-house factions, who seldom seem to be holding a single hymn sheet. The first signs of Scolari’s

XTRA BIG PHIL BIG FLOP >> Chelsea supporters called for his head after lacklustre draw against Hull. >> The Brazilian lost the support of the players, who openly questioned his tactics. >> Scolari was denied funds by owner Roman Abramovich to rebuild the side.

disorientation came with the home defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal. The Stamford Bridge fortress was ransacked in the autumn and was no longer a house of pain for visiting sides. Mourinho’s teams would bulldoze their guests into the net and then assume a position of impregnability while the clock ran down. Scolari arrived with grander visions. The Chelsea hierarchy assumed Brazilian self-expression could be welded onto the old defensive solidity to form an unbeatable whole. The

league champions of 2005 and 2006 would start playing like Manchester United and Arsenal and Abramovich, the absentee landlord, would be enticed back from the art galleries to which his new love had lured him. “Overlapping full-backs” became standard dinner party conversational fare. With the newly arrived Jose Bosingwa on the right and Ashley Cole on the left, Chelsea would prance along the flanks in a formation lifted largely from Scolari’s 2002 World Cup-winning side. It seemed impolite to point out that the world champions of seven years ago could call on Cafu, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Ronaldinho, rather than Florent Malouda and Salomon Kalou. The spirit of adventure was free at last. In Chelsea’s favour is the sense that Scolari never really settled in the Stamford Bridge dug-out. Managing Brazil doubtless inflicted suffocating pressure. But only in short bursts. Here it seemed to come every day.

Chelsea gained exuberance but lost resilience. At the Bridge, visitors found it increasingly easy to negate wingback play. Without the injured or dropped Didier Drogba to smash a path, Chelsea would bounce off a wall. Away games afforded greater space in which to elaborate, but as the side began to toil in December Scolari became ever more querulous, picking fights with referees and fretting about yellow cards. Noises off-stage included suggestions of disquiet about Scolari’s training regime (an old chestnut, when results are deteriorating), and tactical grumblings about the lack of an alternative strategy: the fabled Plan B. One senior player confided recently that Steve Clarke’s departure to West Ham United to work with Gianfranco Zola was a mighty setback for the club. Another theory gaining ground throughout the club was that Scolari inherited a side at the end of a winning cycle, and was denied the funds to rebuild it.

VILLA’S MIRACLE MAN Quiet man O’Neill has a lesson for Chelsea and Scolari AP, London

uiz Felipe Scolari’s failed tenure at Chelsea is in stark contrast to the quiet way Martin O’Neill has raised Aston Villa into the top four of English football. Scolari appeared the right man to bring success back to the Blues in the hothouse atmosphere of England’s Premier League. He lasted seven months. But Chelsea’s slide coincides with Villa’s rise which is the result of intelligent, low-key perseverance by O’Neill and a lack of interference from owner Randy Lerner, who also has the Cleveland Browns NFL team. A midfielder and Northern Ireland captain who led the team to the second round of the 1982 World Cup in Spain, O’Neill won the European Cup – now Champions League – with Nottingham Forest. Soft spoken but a bundle of

Aston Villa manager Martin O’Neill has built a solid team. energy when he stands in front of the bench during games, O’Neill also guided Wycombe and Leicester to promotions before helping Celtic to three league titles and three Scottish Cups. He also took the Hoops to the 2003 Uefa Cup final. As Chelsea manager, Scolari was expected to deliver. But Chelsea went into an alarming slump after a promising start. No such problems at Villa Park,

where O’Neill has formed a line-up without any highly paid stars but with plenty of talent and teamwork. While Scolari had a huge squad of players to interchange, O’Neill barely altered his starting line-up and was rewarded with a good start to the season. Villa also won at Arsenal, beat Everton and drew with Manchester United and, with Chelsea dropping points,

pushed up to third in the standings, five points behind United. O’Neill brushed aside suggestions that his team had broken into the traditional top four – Man United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool – and laughed at suggestions his team was now a title contender. Whatever he truly believed of the team’s chances, it worked well to take the pressure off his players. But they are getting recognition in another way. England manager Fabio Capello picked six Villa players in the English squad of 23 and one of them, winger James Milner, explained how the manager had lifted the team so high in the standings. “You can see from his track record how well he’s done with players,” Milner said. “It’s a great club to be playing for at the moment. I’m enjoying my football and lucky enough to be playing with good players, working with good staff and the manager fills you with a lot of confidence.” If only Chelsea’s players could say the same.

rank Rijkaard’s agent insists the ex-Barcelona coach would “consider” the Chelsea manager’s job and would not be scared off by the ruthless reputation of club owner Roman Abramovich. Guus Hiddink, meanwhile, would also “definitely” hold talks with Abramovich, according to his representative. Rijkaard agent Perry Overeem said if a Chelsea approach was forthcoming then Rijkaard would certainly listen. “[Frank] is obviously a big fan of the game and a big fan of the Premier League so he can be interested in working in the Premier League,” he told Sky Sports News. Hiddink agent expects his client will speak to Abramovich and listen to what he has to say. AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti and former Inter Milan boss Roberto Mancini have also been linked with the job.

But I hope people will recognize me for the person I am,’’ said the teenager, who was surprised to see support from around 30 Danish fans. Fourth seed and 2007 champion Sybille Bammer of

Austria, who is here with daughter Tina, beat Urszula Radwanska of Poland 6-4 3-6 61. Earlier, wildcard entrant Nicha Lertpitaksinchai pushed Indian Sania Mirza of India to the limits before losing the match 6-7 (5-7) 5-7. The 17-yearold matched her heavy-hitting

opponent shot for shot and even had a couple of set points at 5-4 in the first set, and led 53 in the second. But nerves and lack of experience prevented her from scoring a big upset over the Australian Open mixed doubles champion. “I was so excited when I was serving for both sets. I gave her a very close match. Her experience also helped,’’ said Nicha who hit two double faults to drop the first set. Mirza was impressed by the fight put up by her rival. “She didn’t play like someone ranked 945. She hit like a top50 or top-100 player. But I’m happy I raised my level at 3-5 in both sets and pulled it through,’’ said Mirza. In other first-round action, Neuza Silva of Portugal eased past Jessica More of Australia 6-2 6-1, Yuliya Beygelzimer of Ukraine ousted Anastasia Rodionova of Russia 6-2 6-2 and Yaroslava Shedova of Kazakhstan downed Tamira Paszek of Austria 6-3 6-4.

Maradona hits out at his bosses

SPOTLIGHT ON BECKS Beckham backed to build winning mentality in SpainEngland friendly AFP, Watford, England

avid Beckham will steal the headlines if he wins a record-equalling 108th cap for England in today’s friendly against Spain, but Rio Ferdinand hopes the match proves far more significant for the long-term development of Fabio Capello’s team. Ferdinand believes England’s meeting with the European champions at Seville’s Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium offers the perfect opportunity to develop the winning mentality needed finally to lift a major trophy. Ferdinand has been impressed with the way Capello has restored England’s equilibrium in his first year in charge, but the Manchester United defender is convinced their psychological approach to big matches needs to improve. Now Ferdinand hopes the team can lay down another marker by claiming a positive result against Spain in their own backyard. “We are playing against a team that are one of the best two in the world,” he said. “We have to make sure we put on a performance and acquit ourselves in the right way. “It will be a good yardstick to how far we have come under the new manager. There is just a winning mentality at United that is stronger than ever. We’re very business-like. “That is the kind of mentality we need to get with England.

Spanish players Fernando Torres, right, and Sergio Ramos train in Sevilla. The sooner we can get it the better. “It’s down to working on the training field, the desire not to concede goals, the desire to be winners, the desire to claim more titles and victories.” Beckham’s renaissance at AC Milan has persuaded Capello that the midfielder can still cut it at the highest level and Ferdinand revealed Beckham has a new spring in his step since moving to Italy. He claimed critics who insist Beckham doesn’t deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Moore, who captained England’s 1966 World Cup winning team, are wide of the mark.

PEOPLE START THINKING BECKS DOESN’T DESERVE IT BECAUSE HE ISN’T A WHOLE-HEARTED FOOTBALLER. Rio Ferdinand

“It seems to have rejuvenated him. Speaking to him in training there seems to be that bounce in him again,” Ferdinand said. “He has been talking about who he has been training with and saying what it is like. It seems like he’s delighted to be playing football in Europe again. “Becks has become such a big personality in the entertainment world people start thinking he doesn’t deserve it because he isn’t a whole-hearted footballer. Someone like Becks doesn’t play for Manchester United, Real Madrid and then go to AC Milan and become an integral part of that team .”

Bringing his unique blend of feisty bullishness and a combative nature to the table Diego Maradona will mark 100 days in charge of Argentina with today’s friendly away to France. Maradona scored his first international goal at the same venue as a precocious teen – but despite the general fan adulation the 1986 World Cup winner has not found things all plain sailing to date, as he admitted to reporters in Marseille on Monday.“I thought they [the federation] gave you everything when you take over the reins. But you come in and ask for a coach and they don’t give him to you, you ask for kit and they give you Sweden’s, you ask for a player and [instead] they arrange you a match in Cochabamba [Bolivia] at eight at night – and the plane leaves Argentina at half past eight,” Maradona colourfully complained. Clearly, little love is lost between Maradona and the Argentine hierarchy despite his appointment.He arrived insisting he wanted former teammate Oscar Ruggeri on his technical staff – but Federation chairman Julio Grondona vetoed the move. Maradona also wanted playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme in the squad to face France but the Boca Juniors star has a rearranged Argentine league date pending.

A-ROID Major League Baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez admitted in an interview with ESPN that he took performance-enhancing drugs while playing for the Texas Rangers from 2001 through 2003.“I did take a banned substance. For that, I am very sorry and deeply regretful,” Rodriguez said. A 12-time All-Star whose parents immigrated to the United States from the Dominican Republic, Rodriguez was traded from Texas to the Yankees in 2004, three years into a then record 10-year contract worth US$252 million.“I had just signed this enormous contract,” Rodriguez said. “I felt like I needed something, a push, without over-investigating what I was taking, to get me to the next level.” Rodriguez said he took steroids from the time he started playing for the Rangers through 2003, when he was the American League Most Valuable Player. “When I arrived in Texas in 2001, I felt an enormous amount of pressure, felt all the weight of the world on top of me to perform, and perform at a high level every day,” Rodriguez said. “Back then, [there] was a different culture. It was very loose. I was young, I was stupid, I was naive. I wanted to prove to everyone that I was worth being one of the greatest players of all time.”
