Eleni’s Note

I see people making wishes, kids waiting for Santa Claus, families coming together, a city full of twinkling lights day and night and I know Christmas is here. Everyone is waiting for their wishes to come true and you can feel the magic everywhere you go.

This is the season we become more aware of philanthropic efforts, large and small. Around Christmas we reflect on the gifts we have and many of us and organisations ramp up their efforts to be more thoughtful of others and help them in a Christmas spirit. But what really impressed me is that Jungle Aid has no shortage of compassion and a “can-do” spirit to help those in need. They had a successful event last month and they received a good amount of money to help more people. Congratulations to Jungle Aid, we hope you get more and more help every year.

HUA HIN TODAY, December 2015

4 It’s Official! Santa Is Coming To Thailand It’s easy to understand why children in Thailand, especially those on holiday from another country over the Christmas period worry that Santa may not make it to Thailand. After all it’s a long way from his home in Finland and a lot hotter than the North Pole!

A Basket ball,

Can You Spell Christmas?

A shawl from the mall.

C - is for the Christ child born upon this day

But there’s Something that I haven’t got yet

H - is for the holly to make our mantle gay.

That I really want you to get…

R - is for red ribbon to wrap the parcels tight

…A Toy Fish that can get wet!

I - is for the icicles on this cold winter night.

More Christmas Poems

S - is for dear Santa please leave him a treat

In many countries of the world Christmas is in the winter time with tales of snow, ice and sleigh bells. No wonder there are always stories, poems and songs about Santa and his elves and reindeer trying to keep warm. But as you can read, there are also some poems which recognise that Thailand is a little different!

T - is for Thailand and lots of food to eat.

Sing a Song of Christmas Sing a song of Christmas old Santa’s packed his sleigh He’s coming soon to Thailand we hope he knows the way

M - is for the manger where Baby Jesus lay, A - is for the angels on that first Christmas Day. S - is for the stockings Hanging in a row With candy canes out of the top And bulges in the toe. OR C - is for Christmas I wait for all year. H - is for holly that brings so much cheer.

His bag is overflowing, with presents bright and gay,

R - is for reindeer that pull Santa’s sleigh

He’ll call to all the elephants; “Tomorrow’s Christmas day!”

S - is for Santa who seldom is seen.

I - is for icicles dripping all day. T - is for Thailand, it’s lovely and serene. M - is for mistletoe, hugs and a kiss.

We have it good authourity that Santa’s mailbox has been bombarded with letters from children all over Thailand wanting to know if he will be heading this way at Christmas. Santa’s finding it hard to respond so Hua Hin Today has been asked to come to the rescue and spread the goods news! He’s on his way!

A - is for angel who looks just like this. S - is for stockings all loaded with toys from all of the elves to the girls and the boys.

We also hear that Santa really enjoys some Christmas holiday time on the beach at Hua Hin; you may be able to see him taking time out relaxing on the sand; minus his warm Santa suit but look out for a big white beard! Our mini-journalists from the BECC School Hua Hin have been busy but this time they have become mini-poets; in fact mini Christmas poets. Here’s a composition from Martha, Sade, Alma and Maria. A Sled for Christmas Up! Up! Up I jump and down the stairs I fly. Look! Look! A brand new sled that I can’t wait to try.

Santa’s Workshop

Zip! Zip! Bundle up, I’m toasty warm inside.

The elves in Santa’s workshop are busy as can be.

Quick! Quick! Out the door, then down the hill I’ll glide. No! No! It isn’t fair, it simply isn’t right.

They all are working ‘round the clock on toys for you and me.

Snow! Snow! I can’t see any snow, it’s Thailand so don’t take fright!

They’re painting dolly faces and running trains on tracks.

Santa’s Back! Two merry blue eyes a queer little nose

They’re testing all the snare drums and tightening the tacks. While all of you are sleeping and resting in your beds,

A long snowy beard and cheeks like a rose

The elves up north are making strong runners for your sleds.

A round chubby man a big bulging pack

They do their best to make up a gift for everyone

Hurrah for Old Santa we’re glad he’s come back!

And give us each a special taste of merry Christmas fun! Santa Claus is big and fat he wears black boots and a bright red hat His nose is red just like a rose and he ho ho ho’s from his head to his toes.

For Christmas I Would Like ………… Dear Santa, For Christmas I would like: A Coloring Book, A Pencil, A mug, A Pink Rug, A Pet, A Fishing Net,

8 Celebrating HM The King Of Thailand’s Birthday The 5th of December is His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 88th birthday or วัน เฉลิมพระชนมพรรษา พระบาทสมเด็จพระเจ้าอยู่หัว  in Thai language. This public holiday is celebrated nationwide as Father’s Day (“WAN PHO HENG CHAT”  -  วันพ่อแห่งชาติ) as the King is considered the father of all Thai people. Born in  1927, His Majesty the King has captured the hearts of the Thai people and revered because of his devotion to improving the welfare and well-being of his subjects. His Majesty, King Rama IX, is highly recognised among Thai society because it is considered that he always takes care of his people. Each year he used to go up-country to visit villages and towns to talk to people and to know their problems. He has created many foundations and has implemented many Royal Projects to improve the life of his people. He is not a King far away from his people although as he has aged and because of health issues he is no longer such a public figure. Starting a few weeks before the King’s birthday, all buildings are covered up with Royal symbols and portraits of His Majesty all over the Thai kingdom. Every year huge portraits of His Majesty are raised in temples, administrative buildings, schools, houses and shops by individual people and organizations. National flags decorate buildings to wish His Majesty many happy returns of the day and a long life (“SONG PHRA CHAROEUN” - ทรงพระเจริญ).

On the 5th of December in the early morning, Thai Buddhist people go to temples and make offerings to monks. In the evening, a huge free concert is organied in Sanam Luang, the area in front of Wat Phra Kaew in Bangkok. It is a great honour for singers to be invited to perform in the concert dedicated to the King. Some of them sing songs composed by the King himself. Every kind of Thai music is played including traditional music, Thai country music, pop and disco providsing something for everyone in the crowd. The Avenue Ratchadamnoen Klang, which contain many administrative buildings, is festooned with colorful lights. This street ends of Sanam Luang, the area in front of Wat Phra Kaew. In the middle of the avenue Ratchadamnoen Klang, many huge and beautiful portraits of the King are displayed. Bike For Dad – Yet Another Way To Recognise The Royal Birthday More than 600,000 people throughout Thailand and overseas have registered for the upcoming Bike for Dad event, an historic cycling parade to mark the 88th birthday of HM King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The mass bicycle ride is in response to HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn’s wish to encourage Thai people from all walks of life to express their gratitude and loyalty to HM The King on the occasion of his birthday celebrations. The event will also demonstrate the unity of the Thai people.  The Crown Prince will lead the Bike for Dad event in Bangkok.

Krisda Boonraj, permanent secretary of the Interior Ministry, said about 100,000 of the registered participants are from Bangkok, with the majority of the others being from the provinces. “A total of 9,805 participants registered themselves to join the events from overseas,” Mr Krisda added.  The Bike for Dad event will be held on December 11th in various parts of Thailand as well as many other countries. Although that Friday is not a national holiday, this is under consideration. The government plans to seek cooperation from organisations involved to allow their members to join the event, as it will involve a large parade of bicycles and will affect traffic.  “Some of the schools have already expressed an intention to close down that Friday,” Assistant National Police Commissioner Lt Gen Anan Srihiran said. Dr Kamjorn Tatiyakavee, permanent secretary of the Education Ministry, said his ministry was in charge of preparing commemorative books for the event. “The books will compile the history and royal works of the Crown Prince and also present pictures of people participating in the Bike for Dad event,” Dr Kamjorn disclosed.  The Prachuab Khirikhan Provincial Office has also arranged a local Bike for Dad cycling activity. Apart from commemorating the King’s birthday, participants will admire the scenic landscape of Prachuab Khirikhan.

According to the governor of Prachuab Khirikhan Mr. Thawee Narissirikul, the Thai government has encouraged all provincial offices to participate. The provincial office of Prachuab Khirikhan, in cooperation with relevant agencies as well as all cyclist clubs, Have organised the activity on the same date and time. Participants will cycle a 29 kilometre route, starting from the Provincial Office, passing Prachuab beach, Ao Manao and Khlong Wan Buddhist Temple. Then, they will take the same route to go back to the starting point, passing Koh Lak Buddhist Temple, the City Shrine, Dhamikaram Buddhist Temple, Ao Noi local community and Ao Noi Buddhist Temple. Throughout the event, there will be an exhibit displaying His Majesty’s royal initiatives, a Buddhist ceremony and the awarding of bicycles to poor local students who have very good academic results. Over 5,000 locals in the provinces have been registered for the activity.

All Clear For Hua Hin Beaches Which Nation will follow last year’s Hua Hin World Cup football champion Finland?

The condition of Hua Hin beaches has returned to normal, after oil slicks in the area in late October have been cleared.

Prachuap Khiri Khan Governor Tawee Naritsirikul has expressed his gratitude to all concerned parties for their collaborative efforts with all the oil slicks and garbage cleared from the 12-kilometre Hua Hin Beach. Tawee confirmed that international tourists are already enjoying themselves along the beach once again. The governor said that he has authorised all district chiefs to make decisions and give orders to concerned agencies to handle future unexpected incidents with timely solutions and to later report their performances to him or the deputy governor. Meanwhile, Wasan Kittikul, Chairman of the Thai Hotels Association, Western Region, insisted that the problem of oil slicks has not caused damages of over 100 million baht in Hua Hin and adjacent seaside Cha-Am area in Phetchaburi Province as rumoured. Wasan also revealed that there have been no cancelations of local hotel rooms by international tourists, calling on concerned agencies to implement stricter measures to avoid any repeated incident in the future although the situation has already returned to normal.

The Marine and Coastal Resources Research and Development Institute said that oil spills happen often in Thai seawaters, as 13 were reported between September 2014 and last month. Seven of the oil spills occurred in Rayong, where a major industrial port is situated. Institute director Pinsak Suraswadi said the affected area from the oil spill was more than 100 square kilometres.

Regarding prevention of oil spills in future, Kritpetch Chaichuay, director of the Marine Safety and Environment Bureau, said technology would be brought in to enhance sea surveillance. “The Marine Department is working with relevant agencies to tighten sea inspections, and we are planning to introduce radar technology,” Kritpetch said. “We are also using satellite images provided by the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency to keep an eye on the oil spill in the sea, so that we can clean up the mess before it reaches the shore.” He warned that discharging oil into the sea was illegal and those who did so would be punished with three years’ imprisonment and a 60,000 THB fine. They also have to pay for damage caused by the contamination.

A joint committee is being formed to investigate the cause of the oil slick that polluted a 10-kilometre stretch of beach between Hua Hin and Khao Takiap in Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. The investigation was confirmed by Veerasak Puengrassami, acting directorgeneral of the Mineral Fuels Department of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

Built upon the success of previous years, Hua Hin Football World Cup is now gearing up for its 3rd tournament. The tournament is held on 5th and 6th of December to celebrate the birthday of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. In last year’s final, Finland vs Sweden, Finland triumphed beating Sweden 3 – 2.

The samples have been sent to a laboratory in Belgium for analysis and the results were expected in December. The findings would show whether the oil came from any of the petroleum-related activities in the Gulf of Thailand, he said.

The tournament is played on an artificial turf grass field with 6 players a side. Although, matches are friendly, the referee controlling the games makes sure all players keep to the Rules. Entry is still open for more players from all nationalities to help make 2015 the best one yet. If you fancy representing your country at this premier sporting event, visit the Facebook page to register your interest.

Initial checks with companies involved in the drilling, production and delivery of crude oil in the Gulf of Thailand indicated there had been no reported oil leakages, Mr Veerasak added.

Players competing will be able to keep their national football kit. There will be sandwiches, free water provided (by Red Piano Restaurant) and on the 6th December, a ‘grand celebration’. HUA HIN TODAY, December 2015

Spectators are welcome to cheer on their national team with games commencing at 9:00am at the grounds at a side street (Charoen Phatthana pattana soi 2) of soi 94. Sponsors This year major local sponsorship has been provided by the Red Piano Restaurant and Wine Bar in Hua Hin. The organisers would like to thank Mr. Anthony Kelly and Mrs. Chayanisa Kelly from Red Piano for making this possible. The second sponsor is VIQUA, the number 1 UV light water filter system company in the world. Special thanks have also been offered to Mr. Thomas Andersson, owner and CEO of VIQUA for supporting the tournament. Footnote: This is a friendly yet competitive tournament and a family event; anyone who plays in an unfriendly, dangerous or violent manner will be excluded from the tournament without warning!

9 Pepsi Presents Big Mountain Music Festival 7 Kaeng Krachan Country Club 19th-20th December 2015 “Big Mountain music festival (BMMF)” is the biggest music festival in Thailand. It all began with the concept “Mun Yai Mak” (Mun - Craziness, Yai - Huge, Mak – many) in 2010 with an attendance of 20,000 people. Six years later, the festival has become the highlight event in Thailand’s busy festival calendar with up to 70,000 attending. Following the concept of any good festival, BMMF has a vast array of stages, bars, stalls and activities to get involved with spanning two days of fun, excitement and discovery. This year the event will be held at Kaeng Krachan Country Club in Phetchaburi, after moving from their previous venue near Kao Yai National Park. For the first time, expect to see a whopping nine stages, all with their own individual design and feel. However this year’s overall theme is based on the word ‘Joh’ – a word that describes a unique type of Thai Rhythm. Expect over 200 live performances spanning a wide plethora of musical genres, from rock to pop, dance to indie, and of course Luk-Thung and Moh-Lam – true Thai sounds injected with ‘Joh’ rhythm.

‘Keys To The Cities’;

Recognising The Importance of Norwegian Tourism

Some of Thailand’s most famous artists will be playing this year. The ever popular Bodyslam, Moderndog, Potato and T-Bone are just a few that have been confirmed, along with other favourites such as Palmy, 25 Hours, Paradox, Lomosonic and Big Ass. For those into more unique and original music, Big Mountain Music Festival is the place to be this December, with the quirky 80s themed band Polycat playing centre stage, the emotional but powerful sounds of Greasy Cafe drawing the crowds with his hypnotic voice, and the classic sounds of Carabao, bringing out the peua cheewit feelings in us all. For more details about the festival, including how to buy tickets, tent reservations, promotions, and maps of the venue visit their website/ with an English language information page. Venue: KAENG KRACHAN COUNTRY CLUB AND RESORT PETCHABURI PROVINCE Date:  19th - 20th  December 2015 Doors Open: Noon, December 19, 2015

There are many reasons why Thailand, but particularly Cha-Am and Hua Hin, is so popular with Norwegians. The most obvious reasons are the climate, the food, the golf courses and just having an inexpensive good time. A holiday may start as just a short break from the chilling Nordic winter, but for many their break is stretched over many weeks or months and finally a decision is often made to settle here. But this doesn’t answer the question about why this Region is chosen over other Thai holiday locations. One simple answer is Edgar Huus Skjonhals and his company Orkide Ekspressen. Last month Edgar’s personal promotion of tourism in the region, spanning a period of 30 years, was recognised in a big way by invited guests including the Governor of Petchaburi Province, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Directors of both Prachuap Kiri Khan and Phetchaburi Provinces, representatives of the Chamber of Commerce, the Deputy Mayors of Hua Hin and Cha-Am and many other important officials. The Tara Mantra Resort Cha-Am was the venue with Manager and President of the Thai Hotels Association (Western Chapter), Khun Vason Kittikul, being a very affable host and Master of Ceremonies. It was a ceremony to celebrate Edgar and his company’s role in making the Region such a popular Norwegian destination. In 2012 Orkide Ekspressen celebrated its 30th year of operations and this year the 30th year of bringing Norwegians here. The recognition included the presentation of ‘Keys to the Cities’; that is the cities of Cha-Am and Hua Hin. As far as we are aware, this was an unprecedented honour for a foreigner.

The evening was also a celebration of Edgar’s 70th birthday with his wife and sons present to enjoy the spirit of the moment. It was apparent that Edgar holds a special place in the Cha-Am hospitality scene with the Tara Mantra staff paying homage by parading his favourite pleasures, especially cupcakes. A giant cartooned image of Edgar, (looking a little like ‘Pope Edgar’) was featured and the mandatory birthday cake and chorus of ‘Happy Birthday’. This was a fitting recognition of one individual’s role in the promotion of the local tourism industry. However the overall importance of Norwegian visitors was also being appreciated. One of the regular features of the Norwegian ‘holiday season’ is the Wirkola Cup golfing tournament and the associated ‘Dansegalla’ (dance gala) during October and November with visiting Norwegian performers adding a ‘Nordic flavour’ to the celebrations. The Wirkola Cup is hosted by Bjørn Wirkola, the legendary World and Norwegian ski jumping champion, with Orkide Ekspressen promoting the events and providing travel arrangements. Edgar regards Cha-Am as his second home and many other Norwegians share that sentiment. This has become a mutually beneficial pairing with Norwegians enjoying the hospitality and local businesses welcoming friendships and economic benefits. Congratulations to Edgar and Orkide Ekspressen for this achievement and to the Thai hospitality industry for recognising this important occasion.





12 We’re Now Closer To Bangkok! Stephane, the founder and moderator of the website, has made a startling discovery.

The Airport Railway Link To Increase Service With More Trains

Cha-Am, at the main traffic light intersection in town, used to be at the 206 kilometre post from Bangkok but is now at the 191 kilometre post. often uses the kilometre distances on road-side posts as a reference for site visitors to find a number of different locations. A member of their forum wanted to find the Land Department Office to get his driving licence. The information suggested that he should head in the direction of Bangkok and make a U-turn after 199 km. However this person reported that 199 km was actually near Thai Watsadu, and some puzzling discussion then took place. Finally Stephane decided to check it out and discovered the kilometre posts had indeed been changed. In a manner of speaking, we are now closer to Bangkok! This 15 km shift is apparently due to a change in the location of the starting or zero point. It used to be at ‘Wong Wian Yai’, or the King Taksin monument, where Phetkasem Road (highway #4) starts. However, it was decided to move it to where Rama II Road (road #35) starts, as it is the most direct way from Bangkok to the south of Thailand. For most people this won’t really make any difference to their driving habits, although there may be others who use these markers as their reference points. For Stephane, and those using the same

The Ministry of Transport has appointed the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) to proceed with the purchase of more trains for the Airport Rail Link (ARL) service to accommodate more passengers.

strategy, it means going through all their information and updating the distances. Please note that Google Street View is still showing the old system (and old km markers) as the images are from 2011. Hopefully this won’t last for long, as I was recently sitting at a bus stop in Cha-Am when the Google Street View car went by. That suggests an update of the imagery database should be expected soon. I guess I’ll be featuring at the bus stop! Our thanks to Stephane for this information; check out the website by visiting

Phuket King’s Cup Regatta 2015

The Minister of Transport Arkhom Termpittayapaisith, has said after observing the operation of the ARL train service, connecting Suvarnabhumi Airport to central Bangkok run by SRT Electric Train Company (STRET), that the average number of passengers has reached 60,000 persons per day, exceeding the current operational capacity. He said that additional trains will be required to enhance passenger service capacity, while the ARL now can only operate seven out of a total of nine trains, as two are under maintenance until April 2016. The new set of trains awaiting procurement consists of seven train sets with a total of 28

carriages. The new trains will help double the capacity, allowing service capacity to reach up to 120,000 passengers per day. On this matter, the SRT governor Wuthichart Kalyanamitra has revealed that the SRT is now finalising train specifications before proposing the details to the Public Debt Management Office by the end of this month. He added that this procurement deal is expected to be finalised in December, and the new trains will be scheduled for delivery in early 2018, with a total budget of 4.8 billion baht, 4.4 billion of which is the price of the train and the remaining 400 million will be used on spare parts. He has also stressed that their train specification lobbying, favoring any particular manufacturer, is non-existent. The proposed price of the new train sets is confirmed to be cheaper than the previous purchase.

Young Minds Tackle Global Issues at One Young World Summit 2015 The ‘One Young World Summit 2015’ has kicked off at Sanam Luang in Bangkok. About 1,300 delegates from 196 countries are participating in the event, which brings together young leaders from all over the world to discuss critical global issues. Participants were warmly welcomed on a flotilla of boats and then taken to the venue located on the Chao Phraya River. The opening ceremony included music and stage performances to display Thailand’s diverse culture.

The Phuket King’s Cup Regatta is Asia’s biggest and most popular regatta. Inaugurated in 1987 to celebrate the 60th birthday of His Majesty the King of Thailand, the event has been held every year since during the first week of December. With Royal Patronage, the Regatta is organised by the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organizing Committee under the auspices of the Royal Varuna Yacht Club, in conjunction with the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand, the Royal Thai Navy and the Province of Phuket.

These young people have put their heads together to mull over world issues, guided by prominent world leaders attending the summit as youth counsellors. These include Kofi Annan, former UN secretary-general; Bob Geldof, Irish singer and political activist; Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank; and Paul Polman, chief executive officer of Unilever.

The Phuket King’s Cup Regatta 2015 will be held at Kata Beach Resort and Spa from December 5th to December 12th and will host international racing classes with around 150 boats and 1,500 sailors competing for one of sailing’s most prestigious trophies. Kata Beach Resort and Spa will also host the opening ceremony on December 6th, as well as the Closing Royal Award Ceremony on the event’s final day.

The summit will explore six major issues – education; environment; world business; human rights; leadership and administration; and peace and security.

Comprising five days of racing on challenging, scenic courses held among the Andaman Sea islands, the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta brings some of the world’s fastest, independent racing teams. The regatta supports tourism in Phuket, and Thailand as a whole, with an expected economic contribution of around 300 million baht. For more information see

Kate Robertson, founder of One Young World, said she chose to hold the summit in Bangkok because it was a vibrant capital with a great diversity of races, religions and cultures. HUA HIN TODAY, December 2015

“Thailand is the most prominent city in terms of social activities that would suit One Young World’s philosophy,” Ms Robertson said. Bangkok Governor M R Sukhumbhand Paribatra said that the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration was ready and willing to host the first ‘One Young World Summit 2015’ event. He added that this year was the best time to hold the summit as the Asean economic community was about to be established. “The inspiration derived from this summit will help bring about solutions to problems faced by the world,” Governor Sukhumbhand said.

Whitening Craze: Chlorine Soap Hits the Market As the photos shows, apart from naming this product ‘CLORINR SAOP”, the other wording on this version of the product makes interesting reading! For women who put vanity before health, injecting a skin whitening substance into your bloodstream is so last year. Now Thai ladies can use chlorine soap, which is a new whitening fad where women rub and scrub their skin with chlorine to keep it pale. Yes, chlorine. The chlorine soap, which actually contains calcium hypochlorite, otherwise known as the substance used to sanitise water in swimming pools, is a hit on the internet as its makers claim it helps to whiten skin and reduces the accumulation of bacteria

within 1-2 weeks. The soap is sold online for around THB90. Thai society commonly depicts pale skin as beautiful, so who doesn’t want to give this a try? Except it could potentially damage your eyes, according to Kasetsart University’s Dr. Weerachai Phutdhawong, who ran a test from samples of the different chlorine soap in the market. “The substance is 100% calcium hypochlorite. The soap will irritate your skin and damage your conjunctiva,” he wrote on Facebook. “It is very dangerous. The Food and Drug Administration should come forward already and take it off the market.”

The calcium hypochlorite is commonly used to keep pools free of bacteria, by killing them. The compound is also found in household cleaners and bleach, which contain only 2-5% chlorine. Of course, once in direct contact with human skin, chlorine does everything but lighten it. “Chlorine causes irritation in the respiratory system, nose, eyes, and skin,” he warns. Weerachai also mentioned the best ways to handle chlorine, with gloves and masks, not on the face or in a bubble bath. “Skin colour is deep beneath the epidermis -- using soaps or scrubs cannot lighten naturally-dark skin tones,” Dr. Nopadol Nopakun, President of the Dermatological Society of Thailand said

“I think that smooth, clean, dark skin is also pretty. There’s no need to be white. Eating healthy and getting enough rest are key to beautiful complexion,” he added.


14 Absolut Relax at Anantara Hua Hin Resort Anantara Hua Hin invited us to try their signature massage at their Spa. Anantara is known for the tropical gardens and the beautiful Asian architecture and it is always a pleasure to visit and even more to let them spoil you with their services. This was the first time I had visited their spa and I am kicking myself for not trying it earlier. The spa is hidden and on the walk to it all you can hear are tropical birds singing giving the feeling you are lost in a jungle. When I entered the spa a lavender fragrance tickled my nose and the staff were very attentive to my needs. They brought me a cool drink of lime for refreshing and detoxing, which I chose from a range of options. The Anantara spa treatments relax your mind, body and soul. After I got introduced to my masseuse I was directed to my treatment room. Each of the spa’s seven suites is set in its own individual garden courtyard, created by award-winning landscape architect Bill Bensley, with dual al fresco rain showers suspended in bronze cages modelled on traditional Thai artefacts.

Whether you are after Ayurvedic massage therapy or ancient Thai remedies, you’ll find the perfect rejuvenation ritual at Anantara’s Hua Hin spa resort. I was recommended to try their signature treatment massage; an entire healing body massage with the warmth of sand. This treatment is perfect for all those whose life is full of stress.

The masseuse was one of the best I’ve had, she really knew what she was doing. She easily found where my muscles were sore and with strong pressure, after getting my permission, she relieved all my aches and pains. A great experience that everyone should get.

Relaxation Techniques Stress has many sources, some physical, some emotional, some environmental. Unhappiness can also lead to stress. Being able to relax under stress may require some deliberate techniques. Stress is one of the factors that affects your health, both physically and mentally. Many of you may have heard the idioms; ‘mind is the boss, body is the servant’ or “good mood, happy mind.’ Too much stress is not good for our bodies so to prevent harm from stress here are some easy relaxation techniques: Remember all those good things that ease your mind. Write them down and then you can remember them when you are feeling down. Don’t pick a fight, especially with those in your family. Chances are the issue is not so important and can be let go. It also doesn’t hurt to just walk away from time to time.

Getting enough sleep will definitely make you feel fresher; it’s like re-charging your bodies battery. Change your surroundings. This includes traveling, just to change the atmosphere around you. Humans are like machines. We need to rest for a while before we get back to work again. Going to new places and meeting new people will help. If there is something making you feel unhappy or too stressed, try going away on a trip for a while, then you will have enough strength and feel fresh enough to fight/ solve anything standing in front of you. Last but not least is food therapy! Food can help you relax and food such as eggs, soybean, meat, grains and others contain vitamin b6, vitamin b3 and calcium. This includes offal, beans, vegetables, fish, yeast, garlic and day lily. Courtesy of HealthLab, Hua Hin

Try to make some humour when you are feeling angry. Those with a sense of humour are easier to be with, including you. A little bit of humour is much better than making a big deal out of everything. Pets and music are two good ways to reduce stress. Having a pet can give more meaning to your life as they are your friend and they love you. Listening to the songs you like can make you feel calmer just like the concept of music therapy. Exercise is one of the most important techniques. Exercising gives us a chance to let out negative emotions such as anger or sadness. Endorphin, a happy substance is produced while we exercise. Exercising also makes you get better sleep, feel fresher throughout the day and be healthier! Talk it out; whatever you have in your mind just let it all out! However, it would be wise for you to choose a person who you trust and is tolerant. Talking is also a good way for you to think out loud and to reconsider your chosen path or direction in life. HUA HIN TODAY, December 2015


16 All-star Cast Set for Fifth Edition of the Thailand Golf Championship Defending champion Lee Westwood is looking to mix business with pleasure when he goes in search of an unprecedented third victory at the Thailand Golf Championship, which will return to the award-winning Amata Spring Country Club in Chonburi from December 10th-13th. The popular 42-year-old, one of England’s greatest golfing exports, will line up alongside multiple Major winners Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer in a star-studded field for the fifth edition of a tournament that has become a favourite among the game’s elite.

Past champion Sergio Garcia, 2016 European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke and local favourites Thongchai Jaidee and Kiradech Aphibarnrat have also committed to play in the Asian Tour’s flagship event, which boasts a prize purse of US$1 million. One player who needs no introduction to the Thailand Golf Championship is Sergio Garcia. The Spaniard has been a regular fixture at Amata Spring since the start – and tasted a sweet victory in 2013. “Having played the championship since the beginning I’ve seen at firsthand how it’s grown in prestige and importance,”

said Garcia, who posted a tournament record score of 22-under to clinch his win of two years ago. Although the elegant Thailand Golf Championship trophy has gone to international players for four straight years, the galleries can be assured of a strong Thai challenge thanks to the form of local stars Thongchai Jaidee, Kiradech Aphirbarnrat and Prayad Marksaeng. “Playing on home soil makes the Thailand Golf Championship a very important tournament for me,” said 45-year-old legend Thongchai, a three-time Asian

Tour Order of Merit champion who made his way onto the International team at the Presidents Cup earlier this month after enjoying a string of top performances in Europe. For example, if a player uses a swing aid while waiting on a teeing ground they incur a penalty of two strokes, instead of being disqualified. However, if they are silly enough to do the same thing later in the round the disqualification penalty does apply. The second change confirms that a multifunctional device, such as smart phone or PDA, may be used as a distancemeasuring device (if a Local Rule permits), but must not be used to gauge or measure other conditions, where doing so would be a breach of Rule 143. This removes the restriction on using a smart device for distance measuring because it is capable of other functions that are not permitted, even if they are not used during the round. The player will only be penalised if they access or use such information.

must then add an additional penalty of two strokes for the score card error. In all other cases in which a player returns a score for any hole lower than actually taken, the penalty will continue to be disqualification.

Prohibition on Anchoring the Club While Making a Stroke

This exception does not apply to arithmetical breaches on the score card. Modification of Penalty for a Single Impermissible Use of Artificial Devices or Equipment On Monday 26th October, the R&A and the United States Golf Association (USGA) announced the publication of the 2016 edition of the Rules of Golf that takes effect on January 1st, 2016. The new Rule book is the culmination of the normal four-year review cycle and is a collaborative work that applies worldwide to all golfers. There are four significant changes, including the ban on anchoring. Here is a summary of these changes. Withdrawal of Rule on Ball Moving After Address - Rule 18-2b

This means that if a ball at rest moves after the player addresses it, the player is no longer automatically deemed to have

caused the ball to move. A one-stroke penalty under Rule 18-2 will be applied only when the facts show that the player has caused the ball to move.

As announced back in May 2013, the new Rule 14-1b (Anchoring the Club) prohibits anchoring a club either ‘directly’ or by use of an ‘anchor point’ in making a stroke. The penalty is loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play.

Effectively, this means that there no longer will be any presumption that a player has moved their ball after grounding their club in preparation for a stroke. A one stroke penalty only applies if the facts show that a player’s actions caused their ball to move. If they have incurred the penalty the ball must be replaced.

The most important point to understand about this new Rule is that it is not an equipment Rule; players may continue to use long-handled putters. The ban is to prohibit players from using an anchoring technique to make their stroke.

Limited Exception to Disqualification Penalty for Submission of Incorrect Score Card A new exception has been introduced to Rule 6-6d (Wrong Score for Hole) to provide that a player is not disqualified for returning a lower score for a hole than actually taken as a result of failing to include penalty strokes that the player did not know were incurred before returning the score card. Instead, the player incurs the penalty under the Rule that was breached and

The penalty for a player’s first breach of Rule 14-3 (Artificial Devices, Unusual Equipment and Abnormal Use of Equipment) during the round has been reduced from disqualification to loss of hole in match play or two strokes in stroke play. The penalty for any subsequent breach of Rule 14-3 will continue to be disqualification. HUA HIN TODAY, December 2015

The above are the main amendments to the Rules for 2016, but there are other clarifications, or changes to the wording, designed to make some Rules easier for the player to interpret and understand.

20 At the Anantara Resort Hua Hin; Manesh Jha has the ‘Runs On The Board’ There’s a couple of ways ‘runs on the board’ can be explained. Literally it’s about cricket; the batsman has scored and his score can be seen on the scoreboard. Secondly this means a person is likely to achieve because past achievements can be evidenced. The best prediction of success is always previous success. ‘Runs on the board’ is an apt metaphor to describe Manish Jha. He’s a keen cricket fan who has scored quite a few runs in his cricketing career, but he has also been a high achieving member of the Anantara family since 2006. He’s demonstrated to the company that he is more than capable of accepting responsibility and adding the benefits of his experience to his new role as General Manager at the Anantara Resort Hua Hin. As Mr. Dillip Rajakarier, the Chief Executive Officer of Minor Hotel Group Limited, the owners of Anantara commented: “We have watched Manish’s career grow with Anantara since he first started and his hard work and dedication has been evident. As a result he was awarded the ‘Minor (the Company) Excellence Awards’ in 2007 and 2009. He has considerable experience across the broad spectrum of hotel management responsibilities including staff management and customer service.” Manish has a particular interest in opening new operations and rejuvenations of the established. That’s a lead role he is taking at the Anantara Hua Hin Resort, a new set of eyes and a proactive approach. He’s recently had discussions with Bill Heinecke, the CEO and Chairman of Minor Corporation about the ongoing need to pursue improvements; that’s already started and more are on the way. Manish’s ‘new set of eyes’ have been at the Anantara Hua Hin for around three months. He was the youngest General Manager in the group’s history and on the day of our visit he was celebrating his 40th birthday. He says that during a typical three year appointment in the first year time will fly, then new ideas are realised but then it’s time to move on with someone else’s ‘new set of eyes’ beginning the cycle again.

Manish is a family man with his wife and daughter resident in Bangkok. His wife also has a hospitality career and is based at the Anantara corporate headquarters. This means frequent commuting for either party. The low expectations of the family for the education of their seven year old daughter away from Bangkok was a part of that decision, however the new International School now operating in Hua Hin is offering an alternative. Manish’s leisure interests are about sport. He’s considering expanding his sporting interest towards golf, although cricket remains his main passion. He was very interested when we told him about the annual Hua Hin Sixes cricket tournament happening in April 2016. The Anantara is a blend of traditional Thai ambience without the need to compromise on quality. The word ‘Anantara’ in Sanskrit means ‘without end’ or ‘without borders’; that’s a description of how guests describe their Anantara experience. Their logo shows a ‘water jar’ emblem to symbolise Thai hospitality and a generous spirit, along with two Thai cushions to represent comfort. Our thanks to Manish for his time and good humour; and Happy Birthday! However the bad news for him was that the Australian legend Shane Warne’s Warriors recently beat the legendary Indian player Sachin Tendulkar’s Blasters in the first ‘Cricket All Stars’ Twenty 20 in New York; but that was really only a demonstration game. Best of luck Manish for the December 3rd match when the ‘real’ Indian team takes on South Africa in Delhi; memo to everyone, please don’t disturb!

Exploring a Real Thai Wine Cultural Experience Siam Winery is on a mission to firmly establish a wine culture in Thailand. In Hua Hin there are two reasons for success in that mission. The company’s portfolio includes the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard which incorporates the recently renovated Sala Wine Bar and Bistro and downtown, the Hua Hin Hills Bistro and Wine Cellar. The expression ‘wine culture’ is about enjoying the intricate flavours and subtle variations of wine but also fine cuisine, good company and the ambience of the setting. Our visit to the Hua Hin Bistro and Wine Cellar provided all these elements for the perfect way to enjoy the best of the wine culture of Hua Hin.

Ambience is about character and atmosphere. The ambience of this bistro ensures that patrons are relaxed, comfortable and begin to experience ‘wine culture’ before the first glass is filled or menu considered. The combination of checkered black and white flooring, the creamy shades of American white oak and the constant presence of shelved wine bottles is subtle enough but obvious enough to get you in the mood. Our ‘good company’ included the Head Chef, Kitti Kantiwong (AKA Khun Kob) and Chiraphan Permsuwan as the ‘Manager on Loan’ (from the vineyard bistro). Good company usually means good friends or perhaps family members. Our hosts showed us their sense of humour and knowledge of the essential wine culture ingredients. We laughed a lot, shared past experiences and really forgot the purpose of the visit.

The Bistro is located at the Villa Market on the second floor with seating for 40+ patrons. There may well be previous customers wondering about the Bistro’s absence from the previous location at the Market Village. That move was made over a year ago!

By the way our attractive host is also known as Khun Koy, she explained that her nickname is spelt this way but pronounced ‘Kob’, meaning the little pinky (her description) or youngest member of the family. I accused her of having a South American (Mexican?) accent to her excellent English, yet another example of the ease of the conversation. There is now a promotion to explore authentic dishes from each Thailand Province month by month. Our November exploration included Spicy Dried Damsel Fish, Mham Pork Salad, Ponyangkham BBQ with Sticky Rice and Grilled Ponyangkham Tenderloin.

Pon Yang Kham is the name of a village in Sakhon Nakhon, a north-eastern province of Thailand. The village is home to the  Pon Yang Kham Livestock cooperatives that farm Thailand’s best beef. Our Ponyangkham proved that to be the case.

We recommend that diners forget about pre-conceived ideas or presumptions, listen to suggestions and explore. Exploration of unfamiliar wines and cuisine is an important part of this fantastic real Thai wine culture experience.

I am often disappointed that beef steak in Thailand can be so tough that a chain saw is required to provide very chewy portions! My comment to that effect was understood by our hosts who knew that our beef would be very different. The range of flavours and textures (from crispy fish to tender juicy beef) was exquisite, complex and memorable.

Our thanks to hosts (and new friends) Khun Koy and Khun Kob for a very relaxed and satisfying visit to the Hua Hin Hills Bistro and Wine Cellar. Can’t wait to see the December Provincial selections.

Apart from fine Monsoon Valley wines from the Hua Hin Vineyard, wines from at least 12 countries (including Mexico!) are on offer. The trick is to pair the wine with the cuisine and our hosts were ready to help. At the conclusion of our ‘session’ we had to leave behind at least four unfinished bottles of wonderful wine; each with a distinctive and complimentary effect on the palate.

Open: Noon to 9.30 PM.

Where: Villa Market Hua Hin, second floor, 218/1-4 Petchkasem Rd.

Contact for bookings:+66 (0) 32 511 496 -7, Email Footnote: To visit the Hua Hin Hills vineyard, including the refurbished Sala Wine Bar and Bistro, you can join the shuttle service from the Villa Market premises at either 10.30 AM or 3 PM. Bookings are advised.

Lotus Hua Hin is now open Congratulations for Lunch!!! to Mozza Mia!!! Are you looking for a place where you can enjoy lovely cocktails by the pool and eat delicious food?

This is the place! I love it and I am sure you will too. Lotus Hua Hin is located in soi 112 and is a development complex with hotel, private pool villas and residence area. The hotel is currently undergoing expansion adding more rooms and several swimming pools that I believe will make the place even more amazing. I went there to try the new menu and I simply had to share it with you. The chef has created a Thai fusion menu that I was very pleasantly surprised by. I tried a range of delicious dishes, all were well presented with beautiful flavours, the service was excellent and the prices very reasonable. As a starter I had a dish that I tried for the first time here in Thailand and I love it; soft shell crab salad served with crispy rice noodles and sweet and sour curry sauce. The balance of the flavours was perfect and the soft shell crab was crispy, just as I like it. My favorite plate was next and I can’t stop thinking about it! I had tom yum spaghetti with seafood, which was creamy yet still spicy with plenty of seafood. An amazing dish that I am getting lessons to learn how to cook myself. A tiramisu at the end for dessert finished the meal perfectly! Fresh cream exactly as it should be and cookies soaked in rum and coffee! Take your family to Lotus Hua Hin and enjoy the facilities and the great food! Call: 081 943 1732 HUA HIN TODAY, December 2015

A good time was had by all at the soft opening celebration of the new bistro and wine bar, Mozza Mia located in G Hua Hin Mall. In addition to enjoying the great cold cuts provided by the Italian chef, the crowd enjoyed free food and wine samples. Amith & Cam, the restaurant owners, were amazing and were happy to please every single guest.

Oktoberfest at The Hilton and A New World Record Claim Toni’s Beerband was the star performer at the Hua Hin Hilton’s Oktoberfest celebration. Austrian Walter Friedwagner, the band’s multi-talented tuba and bass player, managed to balance four steins of beer on two trumpets he played simultaneously for 3 minutes and 35 seconds. This extraordinary feat was claimed as a somewhat bizarre new Guinness World Record. The Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa has played host to the annual German tradition of Oktoberfest with everything from this authentic band to Paulaner’s famed Oktoberfest beer. The Oktoberfest was held for the sixth year at the beer garden next to the Hua Hin Brewing Company. But what of the question on many people’s minds; why is this Oktoberfest event in November? The simple answer is if you want to hear an authentic Bavarian band during the height of the Oktoberfest ‘season’ you’ll have to wait. Apart from the traditional Munich base, Oktoberfest is celebrated all over the world. Toni’s Beerband has

already played in Melbourne, Australia and many other Asian cities and couldn’t get to Hua Hin until the November 6th opening. Oktoberfest traditionally starts in the third weekend in September and ends the first Sunday of October. It began with the Royal Wedding on 12th October 1810 when Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of SaxonyHildburghausen. The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event. The Mayor of Munich traditionally taps the first keg of beer to mark the official opening of the festival. In this case Khun Montri, Deputy Hua Hin Mayor, performed this task with an expertise that suggested he has done this before. Anton Hammerer, better known as Toni, was the bandleader, but also the consummate entertainer, Apart from dancing, the multinational revelers were involved in competitions including ladies

playing the alpenhorn (“have you ever blown one this long before?”), yodeling, hat exchanges and then a massive ‘conga-line’ involving most of the guests winding through the tables and chairs.

star. But then the ample German foods included Bavarian cheeses. nurnberger with sauerkraut, roast pork knuckle with cabbage salad, bread dumplings and even redberry pudding.

Another feature of the night was the propensity of both musicians and partygoers to raise their beer-filled glasses to the heavens for multiple toasts, or ‘prost’ often whilst standing on tables. You could also say ‘Zum Wohl’ (‘to your health’).

The Hua Hin Brewing Company provides a great retro ‘pub style venue for all sorts of celebrations when a more modern venue would really not fit the need for an easy going and informal occasion. Oktoberfest called for that sort of atmosphere, it may be the best venue for your own celebratory event or for just a casual visit to enjoy live music and good company.

Oktoberfest is about fun and beer but also about food with the Hilton catering staff making sure all the traditional German fare was on offer. The event is sponsored by Paulaner, so Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen, with a nutty malt flavour and a smooth, soft body was the

34 Spanish Wine and Dinner at Intercontinental Hua Hin This month we were glad to be invited to an exclusive wine dinner in the Azzur Restaurant of Intercontinental. K. Glen Roberts, the culinary director, created an amazing set with the beautiful Hua Hin beach on one side and the intercontinental gardens on the other. The guest star of the night was Judit Llop Gasull, the chief wine maker at Morlanda and Vinas del Monsant in Catalunya. Judit is based in the Spanish wine producing region of Priorat which has built up a reputation for powerful, full bodied wines from Grenache and Carignan with recent plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The 4 course dinner was paired perfectly with the Spanish wines and the whole experience together with the live band and the stunning guests created a wonderful evening. We were greeted with a cold glass of Freixent Cordon Negro, the biggest selling sparkling wine in the world. For our appetizer we had Phuket lobster medallion with lemon grass, basil pineapple jelly and flaked Alaskan crab meat. This dish is a fusion of Phuket and Hua Hin; using Lobster from Phuket, a place very close to his heart, and pineapple from Hua Hin. It was served in a martini glass, chilled and paired beautifully with a glass of Solar Viejo white wine which is made from Viura and Chardonnay. It was smooth and fruity, one of my favourites of the night.

We continued with slow poached chicken galantine with candied apple, balsamic reduction, rocket lettuce and Melba toast. The chicken is cooked slowly for 1.5 hours at a low temperature which keeps the natural moisture within the meat. Mr. Glen chose to cook the chicken in a slightly different way in order to compliment the strong taste of the wine, ‘Valdubon Crianza’; which is a vintage, full bodied wine, stored in a 67% American oak and 33% French oak barrel for 12 months thus giving the wine its strong taste and colour, lovely for cold nights.

Our main course was grilled beef tenderloin and foi gras with creamed celeriac, potato mash, asparagus tips, glazed cherry tomatoes and red wine reduction; the dish looked and tasted excellent. I think everyone appreciates well cooked beef and the foi gras lovers, including me, were very happy with this choice. The last wine we had was made by Judit herself and is another award winning wine and, of course, it was the pick of the night. Thank you to Alison Harvey and Judi Liop from Freixenet Group for the great wines and Glen Roberts for the fantastic food and organisation, we had a wonderful evening.

40 State Stimulus Package Boosts Outlook for Hua Hin, Cha-Am

Condominium demand in tourism hotspots Hua Hin and Cha-am will benefit from the government’s recently announced property stimulus measures, according to consultancy Plus Property Co. The company’s latest survey found strong demand for the 17,381 finished condominium units available for sale (as of September) in the two resorts. Finished units from across 30 projects account for 12,664 units or 73% of the total, while the take-up rate is as high as 89% or 11,318 units. Compared with the same period last year, supply and demand have increased by 145% and 162%, respectively, for finished units. The market for completed condominium units in these holiday areas still has plenty of growth potential thanks to tourism promotion measures, which will drive foreign investors to make a purchasing decision more quickly, said Poomipak Julmanichoti, Managing Director of Plus Property. The property market stimulus measures will also spur demand as the majority of residential properties priced below 3 million baht are condominium units on the fringes of Bangkok or beyond, he said. Provinces that stand to benefit first are tourist destinations such as Hua Hin and Cha-Am as their economies do not depend much on fluctuating factors like crop prices. Furthermore, stimulus measures such as loans through the GH Bank and other financial institutions have led to new promotional offers that will inject more cash flow into the market, boost consumer purchasing power and maintain the energetic air in these tourism hotspots, he said.

“The rising popularity of completed condominium units has brought down the available supply in Hua Hin and ChaAm to just 11%. With few developers launching new projects this year, the existing demand gradually bled out of the market,” Mr Poomipak said. “We believe this demand will take one to two years to be completely exhausted. Many projects under our management have reached the 100%-sold milestone this year, including Baan Thew Lom, Baan Peang Ploen and Baan Imm Aim, which cover 1,300 units combined.” The average price in Hua Hin and Cha-Am now stands at 82,997 baht per square metre or 81,927 baht for a completed unit. The average price of completed units is quite close to the overall market average, and they have the advantage of being ready for inspection and to move in. Some units are being brought back on to the market for resale with a 40% price hike or up to 116,410 baht per sqm. Overall, the market in Cha-Am and Hua Hin is very healthy with Thai and foreign tourists flocking to both in droves, especially during long holidays and the high season, said Mr Poomipak. . “The latest data from the Live and Invest Overseas website named Hua Hin the seventh most attractive city in the world for post-retirement life in 2015. We expect unit transfers to rise in the final quarter thanks to the government’s stimulus measures and the growing number of tourists,” he said. Source – Bangkok Post

Push for Investments Expected to Enable GDP Growth of 5% in 2016 Thailand’s total investments are expected to grow by 8-9 per cent next year, compared to 2-3 per cent on average during the past several years. Speaking at the seminar on “Thailand Economic Outlook 2016”, Industry Minister Atchaka Sibunruang said that investment grew by 9 per cent annually on average between 1994 to 2003, which helped drive GDP growth by more than 5 per cent.

She added that after a slowdown in investment expansion, the country’s gross domestic production (GDP) grew only 3.4 per cent a year. Slowdown in investment meant lower income for labourers and the public sector, which led to Thailand being

trapped as a middle-income country for too long. “Strong investment promotion by the government and cooperation of private enterprises should drive investments both from foreigners and domestic to grow by 8-9 per cent in 2016,” said Atchaka. She said the government would accelerate investment stimulation, especially in the high-technology sector and in the supercluster sector to ensure stronger growth of Thai industries in the long run. TMB chief executive officer Boontuck Wungcharoen, said Thailand’s economic growth in 2016 is expected to be better than this year amid positive signs of recovery in exports and consumption. “One of the key economic driving engines next year will be the government’s investment, which will help promote more public investment and increase employment. HUA HIN TODAY, December 2015

The infrastructure investment plan and logistics development in cross-border provinces for dual-track and motorways, and the special economic zones will also help project Thailand as a connectivity centre for the Asean region,” he said. Thongma Vijitpongpun, chairman of the executive committee and CEO of Pruksa Real Estate, said the government’s investment, especially on infrastructure development, would help drive the real estate and property development sector to grow by 5-10 per cent next year. Jit Siratranont, deputy secretary-general of the Board of Trade of Thailand, said since investment is one of the key economic driving engines, Thailand needs to increase its competitiveness to facilitate more investment. Jit suggested reducing duplicate laws and regulations, reducing some processes in setting up or expanding businesses, as well as supporting SMEs in accessing funds.

41 Los Angeles Motor Show: Top 10 LA debuts

With a huge number of world debuts and 50 North American premieres, the 2015 US east coast show was one of the biggest shows this year in terms of new model announcements. Like any other show though, some reveals were more important than others. Here’s what the experts think were the most exciting. #10 Honda Civic Coupe

#6 Range Rover Evoque Convertible

#3 Porsche 911

Who doesn’t love a sassy coupe? Hard edges, an aggressive nose and a hatch-like rear-end – all covered in spectacular electric green paintwork -- give Honda a bridge between its workaday four-door and the upcoming Type-R hot hatch.

#9 Infiniti QX30 Arguably better suited to the concrete jungle than the real Amazon, this faux four-by-four has the looks and pedigree of its Freelander-based hard-top and the style and substance of a soft-top suburbanite. With a price range starting at $85K we can’t see it selling in droves, but it could well become a must-have fashion accessory for the well-to-do.

Yawn, another Porsche variant. Maybe. But this one is yellow… and it is a completely track-focussed weapon! Kitted out with a roll-cage, 911 GT3 Cup-sourced suspension, a sizzling 3.8-litre flat six and a single sports seat, it’s one Cayman we wouldn’t mind tucked in our long-term garage, but alas won’t grace Australian tracks.

#2 Fiat 124 Spider

#5 Buick LaCrosse

It mightn’t seem the most exciting of SUVs, but the Infiniti QX30 shows a lot of promise for the Nissan’s relatively unknown global luxury brand. Not only will it likely become the best-selling model in the Japanese car-maker’s line-up, it’s also a genuine contender to the likes of Audi’s Q3, the BMW X1, Lexus NX

We love the MX-5, and Fiat promises to make it more interesting. More power, and more divisive styling. Yep, sounds interesting to us. The Fiat 124 Spider not only recaptures the nostalgia of a ‘60s Italian nameplate but, with pricing similar to its Japanese donor, should offer low-end convertible buyers a second option… at least until Toyota brings a soft-top 86.

#8 Cadillac XT5

#1 Lamborghini Huracan RWD

The Cadillac XT5 is pretty big news stateside. Replacing the aging SRX, the XT5 is the first of a series of SUVs to wear Cadillac’s new nomenclature, and one we reckon looks pretty impressive to boot. And let’s not forget that rev-happy new 3.6-litre V6.

It might scream ‘yank tank’, but the LaCrosse provides the best clues yet to the look – outside and in – and mechanical make-up of Holden’s imported nextgeneration Commodore from Germany. Squint hard enough and here’s a solid preview of Holden’s new large family car flagship, and we know you’ll prefer it to the Malibu...

#4 Mercedes-Benz SL

#7 Mazda CX-9

You might say SUVs are as dull as dishwater, but as family trucksters go we reckon this one’s pretty inviting. Taking styling cues from the Koeru concept, Mazda’s all-new seven-seat SUV brings KODO design and SKYACTIV technology to the Japanese brand’s biggest passenger model while also improving safety and technology levels.

Now this is a little more like it – the new Mercedes SL Convertible. Drawing styling cues from the AMG GT, this sensual two-door sports flagship brings a more focussed look than the outgoing model, adding a new front and rear, new lights and fender vents we can’t help but gasp over. Oh, and did we mention its bi-turbo V12?

450kW to the rear wheels. Are you mad? Apparently so; and that’s what makes this Lambo one of the best cars of the 2015 LA Auto Show. The lighter, limited-production model is also $50,000 cheaper than the AWD model that retails for a smidge under half-a-million bucks.

45 Holistic Coaching for Healthy Living Khun Nang, a half native Thai chooses Hua Hin for her health and wellbeing business after living and working more than 29 years in France. With a wide range of work experience in international business, including the pharmaceutical industry, she wants to see less people in the hospital halls, by introducing holistic coaching for healthy living.

need to change your way of thinking too. Everything is linked together to deliver a “whole”, that’s holistic and to learn about it that’s holistic coaching.

What is your vision about healthy and happy life? What is the perspective for your a business five years from now?

Since then I have been searching, studying lots of methods to make a happy mind so to have a healthy life. Most of all, I discovered the willpower by NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and meditation. So I had the idea of using the combined technics to make my mind happier.

For most of us, having a good job with a big income, a nice car, a big house, handsome or beautiful partner and smart kids, is considered as having a happy life. We think a good life is eating expensive food or sometimes with expensive food supplements. This is the way most of us think is the way to get healthy.

My holistic coaching program is a combination of mind care, body care by using NLP, meditation, well-living knowledge and healthy food from my French restaurant experience, to redesign a healthy and happy life. The program can be tailor made; to answer whether you need a 1 day course, 3 days, 5 days or 7 days depends on your health and expectations. Nowadays, we have professional coaching to help us be more efficient in our jobs. We also have life coaching to help us fac and solve our life’s problems. But we don’t have one that helps us to get a grip on our health and life as a whole. My holistic coaching will help prevent health problems by changing our eating and living habits for a healthier and happier life. It also helps to prevent depression which is very widespread in today’s life. This is only possible by changing your way of thinking which is difficult to achieve by yourself, that’s why one needs holistic coaching to help one’s face modern life problems with more serenity. When and where will your holistic coaching will take place? Actually we are working on it in collaboration with the Lotus Hua Hin, to set holistic coaching for Healthy Living there, beginning with a one day course at the weekends. But as soon as the necessary changes in the Lotus Resort are completed, we will have 1 day, 3 day, 5 day and 7 day courses with delicious and healthy organic food and luxury spa program using organic certified skin care products imported from France. We expect the changes to be completed in November 2016 of the latest. What made you decide to settle down in Thailand when you have lived most of your life in France?

Why the Lotus Hua Hin when you have plenty of hotels and resorts, by the beach for example?

Well, actually the click happened more than 15 years ago, when I was on a business trip in Thailand, researching the medical imagery market for a multinational company; a global leader in the imagery diagnosis materials. I went to a hair salon for a manicure while visiting my family in Nakorn Phanom, and a lady came into the salon to have her hair washed and dried. That lady looked like a typical ordinary housewife. Suddenly, I realised that I never had a chance to do this. So I took a close look at the lady and thought that I have been a fool working like crazy and doing business without having time to pamper myself. My bank balance was healthy but I had no time to profit from it, unlike that lady who seemed to be happier with less. I realised that people can be happier here in Thailand and have more time to take care of themselves than me living in France with no time for myself. So the idea of coming back to Thailand was on the way.

Lotus, Hua Hin is a small resort but big enough to accommodate small groups. It is a unique resort just outside the town set in the middle of beautiful and natural mango groves on the hill side with lots of potential to become a destination resort for those who want luxury at affordable prices. It’s calm and clean surrounding is an important part of the holistic coaching. But to make people choose something new; you need to convince them that the “new” is really good. Also to show the difference between the old and the new, you need to make them feel the difference by their own experience; that is what we intend to do. When our planned changes are done, the Lotus will have everything that makes the difference, luxury spa, holistic coaching classes, cookery classes and healthy and tasty cuisine with a five star customer service.

What is holistic coaching for healthy living and how have you come to this? Before telling you what holistic coaching is, I’ll tell you why I ended up there in the first place. Actually 10 years ago, when I came back to live in Thailand, I had some health problems like severe and chronic allergies. I used to take a lot of steroids but it did not bother me until one day when I took someone I knew to a hospital. It was around 4.30pm but the hospital was still very crowded. So I asked why all those people still there were that late. I was told that they were waiting to be examined and some of them had been waiting since 5am! I had been familiar with hospital and doctors because of my health problems, but never in my life had I seen a hospital more crowded than a supermarket!! For the first time in my life, I began to panic! What if I was seriously ill? I don’t want to be there waiting for hours, what should I do? So I began thinking of taking care of myself by using my knowledge and experience gained from working with medical professionals, beginning with healthy food. After a few months, physically I was feeling better but something was missing. I didn’t know what, but my mind was not at peace with my body. I then realised that a healthy mind makes a healthy body and a healthy body makes a happier life and when you change your way of eating, you

For me, happy life is a question of having choice, having choice to do whatever you want, whenever you want and the way you want it. You’ll tell me that doing whatever you want you’ll need money and I’ll tell you, that if you need money to do something you want, then you also have the choice not to do it, if you don’t have money. This is the choice that makes you the master of your happy life. In fact by refusing to do something that needs money when you don’t have it, you set yourself free of the need for it. For me this is taking the choice that all of us have, and it’s up to all of us to take it. In order to have a happy life you need to put your wellbeing in the centre of all your decisions. And when you put your wellbeing in first place in all your decisions, you get a healthy life, but then again, you need to have a right idea of wellbeing. This is where holistic coaching is needed. Mental wellbeing leads to physical wellbeing and vice versa. In 5 years’ time, I’d like to see less people suffering from health problems and lots of people being members of our D4U Club that will take place at the Lotus at the beginning of November 2016. What does D4U Club Stand for? D1 is detox to eliminate toxins from your body to allow the diet program to work more effectively. One also needs to detox one’s mind from all stresses. D2 is diet to make you look good physically. Here diet doesn’t only mean stop eating bad food but also to learn how to eat and to eat only good food. D3 is dancing to help you getting fit physically and mentally ready to have a healthy and happy life. D4 is dating to help you meet with people who have the same interest to live a healthy and happy life. This is where 4D comes from and D in Thai means good, so 4D becomes D4U; The Club for healthy and happy people. We are going to begin 1 day courses, at the weekends, at the Lotus Hua Hin, in March 2016. I will have the chance to share with all of you, my ideas of how to get a healthy and happy life, with a column called D4U in Hua Hin Today, from January on. So stay tuned and get ready to be healthy and happy with D4U Club.

How do you expect to take the coaching market share in Hua Hin? Without disclosing the details of our plan, I can tell you that we are not going to take a share in the existing market; we are going to create a new market trend which does not exist today in Hua Hin. The existing program provides services but we will make people learn how to have a healthy and happy life. Here we are not only providing services but mostly we provide information and knowledge. Once you’ve learned it you can take good care of yourself by yourself. What is the interest for you to teach people to take care of their health by themselves? Once they know how to do it, they won’t come back to you? Do you think it is a good way to do business? We want to work on the modern basis of business concept which is to provide an excellent service which people want to take by choice. I don’t want to see people continuing to poison their bodies and minds with unhealthy eating habits. I want to see them enjoying a modern and knowledgeable way of living. The focus of our business is not to be big, it is to be excellent and value for money. As long as there are plenty of people still waiting in the hospital halls or suffering health problems, they would want to come to us to learn how to change their way of life for a healthy living.


46 Honeymoon Villas at V Villas Hua Hin V Villas boutique hotel has an air of magic about it and once you enter the wide open lobby you forget where you are and willingly relax into the professional hands of the staff and luxuriate in the 5 star facilities surrounding you. We were guided to our private one bedroom villa by our butler who was showing us all the facilities on the way; the spa, the gym, the breakfast area and finally, the beach. To our surprise, it was not just the beach but an infinity pool so beautiful that it effortlessly ‘touched’ the sea. I don’t know if it was the right time, the calm water, the sound of the waves or the slight breeze that totally chilled us; but altogether it was magic and the smile on our faces wouldn’t go away. If this was just the beginning I couldn’t imagine what our villa would be like! The small path was lined with stones, water and high, luscious green bushes and with the light clear blue sky was breathtaking. I would have continued walking if the butler hadn’t woken me with his calm voice announcing we had reached our villa. A tall, wooden door was open and we entered our villa. The sound of the waterfall from the pool made me even more relaxed with any remaining tension drifting from my shoulders, the wooden floor warmed my feet and the cool air-conditioned room was refreshing. The one bedroom villa is 260 sqm and is designed to accommodate the intimate romance of couples. The villa is a big open plan room with an enormous soft bed with many pillows to get lost in. The bedroom has a beautiful sand colored bathroom with a rainfall shower and a twin Jacuzzi. The spacious living area features a Bose home entertainment system, wine cellar, coffee machine and a long comfortable sofa, perfect for reclining and listening to music from the fully loaded Ipod. The private garden features a 9 x 3.75 metre swimming pool, sun loungers and a large, covered terrace with a dining table. The villa itself is large with a stunning high ceiling giving a feeling of even more space; two nights there and you’ll forget all your troubles. The whole room is designed to satisfy all your needs however if there is something you want which is not there, your butler can make it happen. It is very difficult to come back to reality after a weekend like this; full of good memories and pure relaxation. V Villas Hua Hin has won a ‘honeymoon holidays’ award and they definitely deserve it. You should not miss this stunning experience, book a villa for you and your loved one and forget about the rest of the word; absolute heaven. V Villas Hua Hin: 63 Petchkasem Road Hua Hin,.

HUA HIN TODAY, December 2015

48 Some Offbeat Days To Celebrate in December

December is probably most anticipated in Thailand because of the birthday of the King of Thailand’s birthday on December 5th In the western world, the festivities and celebrations of the Christmas period and ultimately New Year’s Eve are easily the most recognised. However there are also many lesser known and more frivolous days to consider. 5. DECEMBER 9th: CHRISTMAS CARD DAY


Just a few decades ago, sending Christmas cards through the mail was a holiday “must”. Sending cards through the mail continues to be very popular. The cost and time for writing and sending cards has caused many people to stop sending them. Free Ecards have surged in popularity. Animated Christmas and seasonal Ecards have made sending and receiving them a lot of fun. 6. DECEMBER 10th: NOBEL PRIZE DAY Swedish inventor Alfred Nobel may have died on this day in 1896, but his namesake continues to be honored through the world’s most prestigious award. In honor of his life, the Nobel Prize Ceremony is held every year on the day of his death. Much to the chagrin of the Scrabulous inventors and the annoyance of Words with Friends, this granddaddy of word games is copyrighted. On this day in 1948, the U.S. Copyright Office made an honest board game out of Scrabble. In honour of this event, December 1st is recognised as National Scrabble Day.



Your Country’s National Day If you are not Thai then you will probably want to acknowledge your home country’s National Day in one way or another. Try to find a restaurant featuring the cuisine and traditional activities familiar to you. But before we begin with some of the international National days, we cannot forget Thailand’s National Day, also the birthday of His Majesty The King of Thailand on 5th December. This important National Day features more completely in an article in this edition.

December 1st Romania National Day Romania National Day marks the country’s unification in 1918 and the formation of the Romanian state within its present-day boundaries. Romania’s full independence had been recognised in 1878 but it was not until December 1, 1918 in the city of Alba Iulia, when Romania – made of Moldova and Wallachia at the time – was united with Transylvania, Crisana, Banat and the Maramures area. National Day has been celebrated in Romania since 1990, after the fall of the Romanian Communist Party.

December 2nd Laos National Day December 2nd, 1975, the Pathet Lao; literally “the Lao people,” (the name of the Communist Party) announces the abolition of the monarchy (as of 29th November, the King and Queen Savang Vatthana Khamphoui were forced to abdicate), and proclaims the democratic Republic of Laos. Prince Souphanouvong Thao was then sworn in as President. The new flag was introduced: blue, white and red ... the colour red represents the blood shed for independence, and the blue represents the Mekong, or health of the country. The white disc symbolises the moon over the Mekong, or the unity of the country under the Communist government.

December 6th Finland Independence Day

We would love to tell you about the origin of this fest or how one goes about celebrating it, but, well, common decency prevents us. December isn’t exactly lacking in opportunities to indulge in sweet treats, but today it’s your offbeat-holiday-given right to mix, bake, and/or eat as many cookies as your glycemic index can handle. It’s also not coincidental that this is the same day as the other special day of this month. 3. DECEMBER 4th SANTA’S LIST DAY: We have it on good authority, that this day was created at the North Pole. We interviewed Santa, and a few of his top elves. They tell us that they strive to make the first draft of Santa’s “Naughty” and “Nice” lists by this day. Santa told us that doing extra chores, or something special to help out around the house between now and Christmas, will get you off the “Naughty” list, and onto the “Nice” list.

8. DECEMBER 14th: MONKEY DAY Monkey Day is an annual celebration of all things simian, a festival of primates, a chance to scream like a monkey and throw food at whomever you choose. The origins of the holiday are unknown, though it has been observed since at least 2003. There’s no excuse for not celebrating this day in Thailand!

Finland’s Independence Day (Finnish:itsenäisyyspäivä) is a national public holiday, and a flag day, held on 6 th December to celebrate  Finland’s declaration of independence from the Russian Republic in 1917. During the early decades of independence, Independence Day was a very solemn occasion marked by patriotic speeches and special church services. From the 1970s onwards, however, Independence Day celebrations have taken livelier forms, with shops decorating their windows in the blue and white of the Finnish flag, 

December 12th Kenya Jamhuri Day



Jamhuri Day is a national holiday in Kenya, Jamhuri is the Swahili word for “republic” and the holiday is meant to officially mark the date of Kenya’s establishment as a republic which happened on 12th December 1964.

Cat herding is as difficult as it sounds. Founded by a California couple, National Cat Herder’s Day isn’t just for people who actually wrangle felines, but also those whose lives or jobs feel as if they are constantly herding around cats. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, perhaps it will help to add the celebration of this obscure holiday to your Saturday schedule. The official website of Ninja Day alleges this holiday not only honors all things stealth and nunchucks, but also combats the more nautical offbeat holiday, “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” which takes place in September. Creep, sneak, or display ominous silence and masks, to correctly celebrate this international holiday.

10. DECEMBER 16th: BEETHOVEN’S BIRTHDAY We wish he could have been born on the 5th, too. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still listen to his famed 5th Symphony to celebrate his birthday. But if we’re playing the numbers game, he did happen to compose exactly 16 string quartets.

The country also gained full independence from the United Kingdom one year earlier on 12th December 1963, so Jamhuri Day is a double event and is generally regarded as Kenya’s most important holiday, marked by numerous cultural festivities which celebrate the country’s cultural heritage.

December 16th Bangladesh Victory Day On 16th December 1971, Lieutenant General Amir Khan Niazi, CO of Pakistan Armed Forces located in East Pakistan signed the  Instrument of Surrender. The Instrument of Surrender was a written agreement that enabled the surrender of the  Pakistan Eastern Command  in the  Bangladesh Liberation War, and marked the end of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 in the Eastern Theater.

49 Jungle Aid Fright Night With the help of a zombie, a witch, the odd corpse or two and a few others too scary to mention it was a terrific evening at the Jungle Aid Fright Night event at Hilton Resort and Spa Hua Hin. Thanks are offered to all those who attended, those who donated some terrific prizes and the volunteers who helped. They were able to raise almost THB 85,500, a terrific result which will help Jungle Aid continue to bring a better future to those they touch. Thank you to our sponsor.
