The festive season is now upon us and what better way is there to spend it than on this paradise island. Although not widely celebrated by the Thai community, there is no shortage of options for those that wishing to bring in Christmas and New Year in true style. Most resorts & restaurants on the island will be putting on special menus and activities for those wishing to do things as they would back home, with one exception, and this is one which I can personally guarantee, there will not be one single flake of snow. If there is, I will run through Patong wearing just a Christmas stocking on my head. Please enjoy your time here this festive season and please remember top stay safe. Editor PS When I said snow, I mean real snow!!!!

It was told that a boy who tied his buffalo to an object that looked like a post fell ill and died along with the buffalo. His father went to check the post and it turned out to be part of a buried Buddha image. Wat Phranang Sang is very easy to be find as it is located just before Thaalng intersection on your left hand side if driving towards the airport. It is said to be approximately 500 years old, and is the oldest temple on the island. A story is attached to this temple that claims that the temple was built in honour of an innocent princess executed for a crime she did not commit. At her execution, it’s claimed that she bled white blood, thus showing her purity. The temple compound was also used as a Burmese military camp in 1785. The ubosot is where the three oldest and biggest tin Buddha images are enshrined.

for something else to try. On my last visit I found a new favorite, deep fried mushroom, flowers and veggies topped with a sour and spicy sauce. Delicious! Don’t worry if you come with kids, as the place is family oriented surrounded with chic coffee shops, air conditioned restaurants and ice cream shops. In term of sweets vendors the list is long enough for you to come four week in a row. Thai style crepes are only 20 Baht with a variety of fillings on offer, and usually you choose fillings to make your favoured combination. Each week, as the night goes on, live bands made up of school kids are

encouraged to express themselves on stage; they often also feature B-boy dancing. Each of us used to buy a cocktail, sit on a step listening to the music from an enthusiastic boy band. I would like to thank the market for this as most Thais are shy and we need this kind of public support to help us gain confidence and to add tour experiences.

Three years ago my pals and I joined as vendors when the “Indy Market” first opened. We liked the idea of a place offering handmade crafts like you find here. Its Thai name is “Lad Ploy Kong” which means to get rid of thing, and also can be interpreted as showing off in a nice way. Unfortunately due to having full time jobs which stole our time we weren’t able to join that often. It cannot be compared to the weekend market on Naka Road nor the walking street of Chiang Mai, but we still like to visit from time to time to recap our teen spirits! The Indy Market occupies a mainly open-air area on the Limelight Avenue near Sofa Pub. Three years since it was formed many things have changed and it is now a popular outlet for youngster to meet up. We enjoyed people watching as a hobby and there is no better place for that than a market. The Indy Market is actually quite small but it is full of characters. It opens on Thursdays and Fridays from 4pm until around 10.30pm and you will see many youngsters dressing up to impress each other, whilst some are still in uniform. But they all get together, have fun playing guitars, enjoying themselves and sharing some laughs. The avenue offers a park like ambience with plenty of stairs and steps to sit, plus it offers a wide range of items including food, clothes, crafts and live music. Young vendors display handmade items like bags, souvenirs, key rings, trendy jeans and T-shirts. Even you are not intending on buying anything it is fun to just walk, have a chat with the sellers and appreciate their passion for wanting to make a few Baht. Further inside is a food zone where freshly made dishes are available. I like the chicken and beef BBQ sticks as they are easy to carry around while looking

No one can dispute that hot weather and ice cream pretty much go hand in hand. And for this reason, in 1989, Italian born Stefano de Carlo set out with the idea of bring Phuket not only its first ice cream parlor, but also its first homemade ice cream. This idea led to the birth of Phuket’s first ice-cream parlor that produces freshly made premium ice cream, proudly featuring both local and imported flavors. Paciugo’s commitment to making the best ice cream means that each batch is made with care, using only premium quality ingredients. No artificial colors, flavorings or preservatives are used in the ice cream. Every morning, Paciugo produces its own freshly made ice cream on its premises. Using the freshest ingredients available, each batch of ice cream is skillfully prepared using time honored methods. Paciugo’s local flavors have won the hearts of ice cream lovers here – some of which include the famous Mango, Coconut and Coffee flavors. That’s why Paciugo’s premium ice cream has garnered fans across

whipped cream, sauces or any other ingredient will simply ruin the genuine taste that Paciugo’s ice cream has. In addition, Paciugo’s doesn’t just give you chocolate and vanilla ice cream like so many other ice cream shops around. They have the ability to make over 17 flavours of soft serve ice cream that will truly knock your socks off! Paciugi is open each and every day from 10am through until 1.30am.

will pay the obligation back – some kinds of movable property can also be assigned. Movable property can also be mortgaged provided it is registered according to law, such as floating houses or ships of five tons or more. If the property which is assigned in the mortgage contract is not an immovable property or not a movable property which is allowed to be mortgaged as per Section 703 of the CCC, then that mortgage contract is prohibited by law and will be void. Please realize that a mortgage contract must specify the property to be mortgaged and must contain, in Thai currency, either a specific sum or a minimum amount for which the mortgaged property is assigned as a security. It is also important to remember that no property can be mortgaged except by the owner of that property, however a person may mortgage his own property as security for the performance of an obligation by another person if he/she chooses. The mortgage contract can be used as a tool to ensure that the mortgagee will receive money if the borrower or the mortgagor fails to pay back the money that was borrowed within the specified time frame. Where the debtor fails to perform his/her obligation, the mortgagee has the right to file a complaint to the court asking it to seize and sell the immovable property that was assigned in the mortgage contract and deliver the proceeds received from selling the immovable property to the mortgagee. However, before the mortgagee files a complaint at court, he must first notify the debtor and/ or the mortgagor in writing to perform his obligation within a reasonable time period (usually 7 days) to be fixed in the notice. If the debtor fails to comply with the notice within the specified time frame, the mortgagor can then exercise his rights in a court of law. If the mortgagor fails to first send a
