British embassy sell-off T

he British embassy’s 23rai site on Wireless Road in Bangkok’s premier real estate area is about to be offered for sale. According to informed sources in the property industry, the embassy is sounding out developer interest through CBRE Thailand. The total value of the nine acre plot, assuming a selling price of around 2 million baht per square wah, will be at least 18 billion baht. Embassy spokespersons won’t confirm the sale but significantly don’t deny the speculation. The embassy press office simply said the valuable estate was under constant review to ensure the interests of the British tax payer are protected. Only large developers or those

with giant overseas partners will be seriously interested in a building bonanza which could well turn out to be a joint-use condominium, hotel and upscale mall and leisure complex of titanic proportions. The new megacomplex Terminal 21, now under construction in North Pattaya, is roughly the same size. This is not the first time land at the British embassy site has been put up for sale. A four-acre frontage located at the intersection of Wireless and Ploenchit roads was sold in 2006 to Tiang Chirathivat Real Estate which was part of Central Group. At the time the sale was said to be one of Thailand’s largest property sales but the prices for Bangkok’s prime real

estate have surged in the last 10 years. The embassy was established at its current site in 1922 and originally featured a number of buildings including the ambassador’s residence, tropical gardens and a renowned statue of Queen Victoria which had to be covered up during the Japanese occupation of the early 1940s. Although the news of the most recent proposed sale has attracted some protests that the British government is undermining its prestige

and importance, the lure of 18 billion baht or 400 million pounds is obviously irresistible in a country with a balance of payments problem. It is not currently known where the embassy would move to, or indeed if it needs to. Much of the work of the embassy is now done in rented offices at Trendy House, Sukhumvit 13, which handles all visa applications to UK as well as being the calling point for UK nationals wanting to obtain or renew their British passport.

News Visit ASEAN@50 tourism branding Absolute Health unveiled ahead of major campaign celebrates fourth

anniversary

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) revealed the branding for its “Visit ASEAN@50 Golden Celebration 2017” tourism campaign. The branding was unveiled by the 10 ASEAN heads of state at the ASEAN Summit in Vientiane, Laos. The new campaign will promote the twin objectives of commemorating the 50th anniversary of ASEAN in 2017, and embracing the ASEAN region of Southeast Asia as a single and united, yet diverse, tourism destination. Further objectives of the Visit ASEAN@50 campaign include raising international visitor arrivals to Southeast Asia from 108.9 million

in 2015 to 121 million by the end of 2017 and increasing tourism receipts from USD 75 billion in 2014 to USD 83 billion, also by the end of next year. Multiple activities and promotions will be announced to drive the campaign. Visit ASEAN@50 partners will be revealed at the ITB Asia travel industry show in Singapore in October. Special travel experiences and offers will be announced at the World Travel Market in London in November. “ASEAN’s Golden Jubilee serves as a great opportunity for our 10 member states to celebrate Southeast Asia’s strength through diversity as the world’s fastest growing tourism

destination,” said Thongloun Sisoulith, prime minister of Lao PDR and chairman of the ASEAN Summit. “Visit ASEAN@50 will contribute towards our vision of creating a cohesive ASEAN economy,” he said. Key target markets for ASEAN’s 50th anniversary tourism campaign in 2017 will be long-haul markets such as Europe, Middle East and North America, as well as intraASEAN, China, Japan, Korea, India and Australia. The 2017 50th anniversary tourism campaign is part of the ASEAN Tourism Strategic Plan 2016 to 2025, which was adopted by the association’s tourism ministers in Manila in January 2016.

News British embassy sell-off TRI-Factor Series™ expands to Thailand for the first time in its history Continued from page 1

In reality, the powers of embassies worldwide have been whittled down over the past 10 years. For example, British passports are now actually produced only in UK. The role of the Bangkok embassy is simply to check the paperwork before forwarding the documentation to UK. Some visa applications are scrutinized and approved in London with some initial procedures already privatized to outside agencies. These changes have left the British embassy principally responsible for trade and industry matters and consular services. But even consular work has become more restrictive with less reliance on front-line services and more emphasis on reading

and acting on information available on websites and Facebook. These trends are also reflected in the closure of all British consular offices in provincial Thailand. The base in Chiang Mai was closed in 2015 and the one in Pattaya, opened in 2009, survived barely three years before being axed. Although there are British honorary consuls serving in several provincial cities and towns which are popular with tourists, the officers who receive a small gratuity are very restricted in what they can and cannot do. One told Pattaya Today he acted only on the instructions of superiors in Bangkok and was not authorized to advertise

any local services. One staff member of the Bangkok embassy, who declined to be named as he has not authorized to speak on the matter, told Pattaya Today, “The selling-off of the rest of the embassy in Wireless Road is a foregone conclusion and will likely occur next year. There is certainly no need for such elaborate premises as the number of British expats in Thailand declines and diplomatic services continues to shrink.” He added that, in a post-Brexit world, the Wireless Road complex might be replaced by a rented house for the ambassador and expanded use of office space such as Trendy House already offers.

Jetstar Asia attains enhanced operational safety review Jetstar Asia has successfully completed International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Enhanced Operational Safety Audit (E-IOSA) and has been renewed on the IOSA Safety Audit Registry – a registry that the Singapore-based airline has been on since 2012.

We are pleased to share that Jetstar Asia has for the first time cleared the enhanced operational safety audit carried out by IATA and has renewed its IOSA registration till 2018. The Enhanced IOSA Standard is an expansion of the IOSA programme since September 2015 and focuses on the continuous quality assurance of operational procedures and processes while encompassing all IOSA disciples. To achieve E-IOSA certifications, the airline has

to go through regular internal assessments and prepare a conformance report. Qualified auditors and a standardized audit procedure are part of the pre-requisites. “Jetstar Asia has been on the IOSA safety registry since 2012 which shows our commitment to safety and our latest e-IOSA renewal cements our on-going commitment to safety.” To achieve IOSA registration, Jetstar Asia has in place a cohesive and integrated corporate safety and quality management system to constantly monitor, review

It also enables high-level athletes to enjoy competing against single discipline specialists whilst encouraging amateur participation across its classes. Elvin Ting, managing director of Orange Room Pte Ltd., says, “We’re pleased to announce TRI-Factor Series Thailand with the TRI-Factor Triathlon offering athletes a feel of the TRI-Factor race experience before we launch the

four event series in 2017. We would like to thank the Royal Thai Navy for its support, and for providing such an iconic and scenic race course. It brings the chance for entrants to compete in beautiful conditions amidst the stunning scenery of Chonburi’s Sattahip area. This means clean, safe water in a tranquil bay which is ideal for swimming; it means running and cycling close to nature, through the bright pinks and oranges of tropical foliage and along the coastline. This is so much more of a natural, exciting experience than a typical closed road race. To sum up, the triathlon courses here are challenging and beautiful.” He adds, “For this inaugural event, we partnered Morph Performance to bring sport science and technology to the Thai sporting community. We want every athlete to understand their potential through analytical testing and maximize their performance through online training solutions. TRI-Factor Series hopes to inspire more athletes across different competencies to participate in the various categories in each event. For the more advanced athletes, this means an opportunity to compete in all or some component races, against serious pros and enthusiast amateurs in any event type. It’s a great opportunity to

make triathlon accessible and enjoyable for all, hence why the TRI-Factor Series is such an innovative movement in its regional market. We focus on contributing to the well-being of people, helping everyone live longer, healthier lives in the spirit of our regional campaign, Grow Stronger, Live Better.” The Thai race course in total is 67 kms. It comprises run 15 km, swim 2 km, bike 50 km separated into the programs as follows: The longest distance is 2 km swim/50 km bike/15 km run; standard distance is 1.5 km swim/50 km bike/8 km run; the shortest (or sprint) is 800m swim/30km bike/8 km run. Participants can register at www.trifactor.in.th with places limited to the first 1,200 for the inaugural triathlon race. Ticket pricing starts from 2,800 baht for the Sprint Category. See the website for more details and direct booking. A new Asia TRI-Factor point scoring system will be rolled out for all athletes to keep track of their current performance relative to their peers across various countries within Asia. TRI-Factor Series will also be launching a new app in the latter part of 2016 that will provide an additional platform for all athletes to connect with other athletes, whilst keeping updated on the latest event news and their personal race records.

F1 in Schools Founder and Chairman visits Thailand >> from L1

F1 in Schools does all of that because of the nature of the programme. We deliver science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in the classroom in a fun and exciting way. “We are running in 44 countries around the world and have succeeded in so many countries and improved the quality of the students that are leaving schools.” Plans are being made by Thararam for F1 in Schools to take off by locating some pilot schools and to get the initiative launched by 2017. Among the plans is ultimately to get the support of the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of Education to disseminate the programme across the whole of Thailand’s national school network. The next F1 in Schools World Finals, where the best teams from around the globe compete for the Bernie Ecclestone World Champions trophy, will be held in Austin, Texas on October 16-19, 2016. “I look forward to welcoming one or two Thai teams at the next World Finals event in 2017,” concludes Denford.

MG5 1.5 Turbo X Brit Dynamic

by John K. Lindgren Editor-in-chief: carsanook.com

1.5 L Coupe Styled Sunroof Family Sedan

Only ten years ago a Chinese owned Thai assembled passenger car (sedan) would have been like “Are you kidding me?” Case in point. The iconic MG (Morris Garages) sports motor car was born 1924 in Great Britain. Now under Chinese ownership and assembled in Thailand. MG Sales (Thailand) Co., Ltd. is a joint venture between China's state-owned SAIC Motor and Thailand's retail giant CP Group also the 7-Eleven franchise in Thailand. Year 2016 MG's model line-up in the kingdom consists of MG3. MG5, MG6 and MG GS (SUV). Pattaya Today Automotive this week features MG 5 1.5L Turbo X variant priced 759,000 baht. The entry level MG 5 sans turbocharger and sunroof has a sticker price of: 649,000 baht. Design: The automobile architecture which MG calls “Brit Dynamic” or hatchback-coupe. The front, the face with the V-shaped sport styled grille displays an octagonal silvery oversized MG logo in the center followed by dynamic sweeping waist and roofline. The side view reveals a long, low and sleek sedan styling. The rear boasts a unique horizontal tail-light concept and a new half circular LED tail light cluster. Visibility is further enhanced by the clear projector headlights and cool LED Day Time Running lights in the front.

Our demo MG 1.5 Turbo X is fitted with 16 inch five-spoke aluminum wheels. The entry level 1.5 L model comes with 15 inch rims. Interior: Contemporary spacious family sedan design with firm high quality cream color leather seats and functional dashboard lay-out. The rear seats passengers will enjoy plenty of legroom thanks to MG 5’s long wheelbase. Everything is easy to read and operate including the seven-inch touch screen navigator connected to MG's InKaNet (in-car net), a 3G intelligent network system which integrates car, Internet and user communication together with IOS and Android compatibility. Safety systems; TCS - Traction Control System, ABS - Anti-lock Braking System, EBD - Electronic Brake Force Distribution, Electronic Brake Assist and SCS Stability Control System and more. Engine: Under the sculpted hood (bonnet) you'll find a compact turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine mated to a six-speed gearbox. 129 horse power and 210 Newton Meter of torque (pulling power). Without the turbocharger or forced induction, as we say MG's 1.5 liter motor would feel a tad too weak to move the 1.3-tonne vehicle during overtaking maneuvers on motorways

and expressways when instant acceleration is needed. Turbo charged, proactive driving style will increase the fuel consumption. However, MG 5's overall thirst is a frugal 16 kilometer per liter. MG5 drinks 95 pure petrol, gasohol, E20 and E85. On the Road: MG 5 has a low stance but good visibility from the cockpit, driver's view. We start our test drive in the reverse mode (R). No problem! The backup camera or rearview camera on the 7-inch screen makes this often challenging maneuver a piece of cake. Later on the BKK- Pattaya Motorway with hundreds of slow pickup trucks and 10-wheelers to overtake MG 5's 1.5 turbo provides enough oomph for safe passings. The steering is responsive, the handling balanced thanks to the European tuning suspension with MacPherson struts up front. The brakes: 4-wheel disc brakes with low dragging calipers for accurate braking. During the last day of the test drive we head for the Pak Chong and Khao Yai highlands, National Park territory with higher altitude cooler & cleaner air. Before sunset. Turnoff the A/C and open the sunroof. Enjoy the oxygen rich green, green surroundings. Verdict: Years ago this segment was dominated by the Japanese global sedans Toyota Vios and Honda City.

Now, there's competition – that's good for the consumer. More vehicles to choose from including the MG 5 which is great value for money, especially the range-topping 129hp 1.5-liter petrolturbo engine variant. Including sunroof! MG Sales (Thailand) Company Limited has 44 dealerships across Thailand, 17 in Bangkok plus all major provinces. Pattaya Today readers can contact MG Best Auto Sales, Chonburi

for a test drive. Tel: 038-111-555 www.mgbestautosales.com

THE BANG SARAY BEACH CLUB

Chill, Grill and Swim… The Bang Saray Beach Club (formerly The Bang Saray Club) is now under new management having been renovated, redecorated and generally given a sympathetic, pleasing make-over. Since its inception way back in 1966, when it served as the officer’s club during the Vietnam war, it has undergone many incarnations but now the beach club has been given a new look, a fresh take and a new burst of creativity. The pool sparkles, the comfy tables and chairs dotted around the garden are perfect for languid afternoons in the shade while the brand new horseshoe shaped bar invites a casual elbows down attitude. Under the aegis of the charming manager, Alan Meyhew, the menu reflects the nascent trend of gourmet burgers, breakfast combos, superior sandwiches, bar snacks, nibbles and of course cocktails to casually enjoy a full day of lazing and grazing. Let’s start at the beginning. What could be nicer than to take breakfast overlooking the bay of Bang Saray with the waves gently lapping at your feet and your eyes feasting on the panoramic vista of sun, sea and sand beyond. All day English is the quintessential eggs, bacon, pork sausages, baked beans, grilled tomatoes and steakhouse fries

(B.280) while the athletes who have jogged down the beach can enjoy the optional healthy style with Greek style yoghurt topped with muesli and fresh fruit (B.150) while the “Continental” is packed with toasted sour dough bread, preserves and fresh steaming coffee. Mick and I visited recently when the Beach Club had only been open for a week and the menu was a work in progress, but as time goes by it will be augmented and gussied up with specials and forthcoming fare. The burgers are big, bodacious affairs made from 180 grs of Australian Angus prime beef or lamb and can be customized with Gruyere or blue cheese and rashers of the

best bacon plus all the trimmings with prices starting at B.320. We sank our teeth into one of these beefy beauties and they’re terrific. Who doesn’t crave a bowl of steaming pasta once in a while. All the favourties are here, creamy, luscious carbonara, traditional Bolognaise with its hearty beef and tomato ragu and the one Mick ordered, Putanesca. Here the zingy flavours of olives, anchovies, oregano, basil and oil had been overlaid with the best capers we had eaten in a long while. It’s the world’s most pungently delicious pasta and this sauce had been made with an adept hand for an outstanding bowl of Italian umani.

All pastas come served with a mixed side salad and garlic bread. But wait – we’re getting ahead of ourselves, we haven’t told you about our starters yet and we are galloping on to heartier dishes. We chose the house chicken pate to kick off. A child of the 80s, it seems to have gone out of favour recently, which is a shame as it’s a smooth, creamy bowl of deliciousness. Chef Vinai’s signature dish is sealed with clarified butter and as the timehonoured custom dictates is laced with booze in this case brandy. Priced at only B.180 it can perfectly slot into any time of day with pieces of toast generously spread and enjoyed with a frosty beer or glass of wine. Salads just scream beach-side for either brunch or lunch. Here, the Caesar variety can be ordered with chicken, garlic prawns or smoked salmon, for a healthy plate of vitamins while chef’s special is packed with ham, cheese, smoked salmon, tomatoes, cucumber, coleslaw and more. I tasted the Caprese salad which is always a favourite of mine. The ingredients of this simple salad are laid bare to speak for themselves, there’s no hiding in this concoction with a salute to the Italian flag. The mozzarella must be a superior quality of buffallo milk, the tomatoes tart and tasty,the freshly torn basil leaves aromatic and peppery with the olive oil balsamic dressing adding that final zing – BBC’s Caprese ticked all the boxes. The Philadelphia sandwich

winked at me from the menu but it was too late in the proceedings to slip in a sandwich. Imagine this: An open toasted Panini smothered with thinly sliced Australian steak, covered with onions and sweet peppers and then popped under the grill until the top layer of Gruyere cheese is bubbling and molten. Or for smoked salmon lovers, toasted sour dough with lashings of cream cheese crowned with the best Norwegian smoked salmon, slivers of onions and crisp lettuce (B.280). Thai favourites are on offer plus a selection of tasty snacks (crisps, nuts etc.) which can be enjoyed at the bar or under the trees. The Bang Saray Beach Club has reinvented itself into a leisure destination to suit all the family with a menu that hits the right notes and a bar serving local and imported beers, signature cocktails (shaken and stirred) and an extensive wall of wines at reasonable prices. This beach side gem needs to be discovered so the next time you’re in the area do travel the extra kilometer and see for yourself exactly what it has to offer. Tel: 063 306 4656. Open daily from 11:30 am to 10 pm weekdays and 10 am to 10 pm weekends. Ample parking. Turn off Sukhumvit Highway through the arch of Bang Saray and go through the mini roundabout until you see a temple on your right. Take the road directly in front of the gates and follow it through until you reach a white wall on your right with the Bang Saray Beach Club logo and there you will see the entrance to the club.

A Weekend of Wine Experiences The last weekend in August staged two exceptional wine events showcasing wines from the old and new worlds. The Marriott Resort and Spa hosted a Monsoon wine evening accompanied by creative Thai fare while The Pullman G Hotel presented a selection of distinguished labels from France paired with French oysters, cheeses and more.

Pattaya Marriott Resort & Spa Pullman Pattaya Hotel G The setting for Marriott Pattaya’s latest wine event was the Sala Rim Nam, their privileged area reserved for special private and promotional events held at the resort and it was here that they staged their Monsoon wine experience. Designed to resemble a Thai rustic village, it boasts clusters of Thai pavilions nested beside the lotus pond making for a most charming setting.

The chosen wine to be highlighted was appropriately from the Monsoon Valley who have a portfolio of award-winning wines made from carefully selected grapes grown at the Hua Hin Vineyard. The leading new latitude wine is crafted by Siam Winery winemaker, Kathrin Puff and her vino-team using old world values with new world enthusiasm and state of the art wine making equipment. Wine lovers were greeted on arrival with a flute of Monsoon Valley Sparkling Brut Blanc de Blancs. Made from the traditional Champenoise method, it was a light elegant wine, perfectly blended with subtle fruity notes which paired beautifully with the extensive selection of appetizers. Fresh spring rolls filled with papaya and smoked salmon salad made a delightful mouthful, as did my favourite, the pomelo salad with seared scallops. Fusion techniques were to the fore with the chicken croquettes with green curry receiving many compliments. We were now sipping the second pour of the evening, the Colombard 2014 with its light body and complex aromas of citrus and green apples, it proved another best friend for the spicy papaya salad and the excellent mee krob which had us returning for more. Next to be served was Monsoon Valley’s

first ever crafting of Shiraz grapes, making for an intriguing White Shiraz which, with its racy hints of red fruits and black pepper, belies the pretty pale salmon colour for a refreshing rose. The medium sweet Chenin Blanc was another unique wine with an underlying “spritz” which blended so well with the spicy salads. It was now time to bring out a big, bold red to escort the Australian lamb cutlets sizzling on the BBQ and also the appetizing selection of premium cheeses the likes of brie, blue, Gouda and Edam. Monsoon Valley’s 2013 Shiraz performed brilliantly with its rich, well balanced structure producing a medium bodied wine with a soft tannin level. Another station bubbled and steamed with fuming flasks of molecular keang som soup to intrigue the guests, which it did splendidly. The last pouring of the evening produced a Monsoon Valley Muscat 2014. This delicious pink fortified wine was a big hit with its well balanced sweetness and elegance. Paired with one of the scrumptious desserts on offer it sweetly brought down the curtain on another successful Marriott Pattaya wine evening.

Marriott Resort and Spa is located on Second Road Pattaya adjacent to Royal Garden Plaza. Tel: 038 412120 or visit www.marriot.com/pyxmc.

Head down to the Pullman Hotel G on Wongamat beach (North Pattaya) and most nights of the week there’s a special foodie happening at this cool, contemporary destination. Mick and I were invited recently to a French Wine Experience in their new swanky Sunset Lounge. On arrival, the striking décor of the lobby is impressive, chic and trendy, with cascading water features and interesting modern sculptures. We were directed down to the lounge and found ourselves at a stunning elevated level looking out onto two beachfront swimming pools, equipped with mood lighting and chill-out music with the backdrop of a palmfringed beach. Ma-Province supplied the five wines to be enjoyed with the first rate canapés, finger food and carefully selected cheeses and cold cuts. Chef Yongyuth (executive sous chef) had excelled in providing the complementary victuals to pair with the French wines. The first pour of the evening kicked off with a glass of Perle de Roseline Cotes de Provence Rose 2015. This world renowned styled wine with its savoury aroma of fruit and floral blossoms

married well with the superb Fine de Claire oysters and seared tuna bites. Roses are definitely enjoying a revival these days and their easy quaffability makes them perfect for aperitifs and seafood dishes. Next up was a Cabernet Sauvignon IGP de l’Ardeche, probably the most famous red wine grape variety on the planet. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stable mate Merlot. With its deep colour, good tannin structure it made very good friends with the abundant supply of superior cold cuts and French cheeses. Our next glass was a superior wine, SaintEmilion Grand Cru Chateau Saint-Valentin 2009. With its deeply fruity taste and lightly smoked aroma, it made a stunning companion not only to those cheeses but also to the mini sausages, quiche and deep fried breaded chicken and fish fillets. Only two labels awaited to be opened now, a marvelous “Winter Sun” AOC Muscat de Frontignan with its freshness and sweetness paired deliciously with the scrumptious desserts, and a particularly aromatic wine from the Alsace region of France, Bergheim 2009 Domaine Sylvie Spielmann. Pullman Pattaya Hotel G is located on Wong Amat Beach with access from Naklua Soi 16, North Pattaya. Tel: 038 411940 or visit www.pullmanpattayahotelg.com.

Pattaya’s Delight at Devarana Spa Devarana Spa offers a creative spa retreat from the little elements that remind us of one of Thailand’s prominent beach resort destinations, Pattaya. Pattaya’s Delight is inspired by the delectable Thai dessert khao lam local to the eastern province where the vibrant city is situated. The two-hour inspiring rejuvenation includes a 30-minute body scrub to restore the skin’s natural radiance followed by a 90-minute massage to provide a sense of renewal for the body. Guests can experience this destination-inspired treatment from September to November 2016 at all Devarana Spas in Thailand. Treatment begins with the enriching and smoothing body scrub using the ingredients of the local Thai dessert – a blend of sticky rice,

coconut, black pea and sugar with a touch of smoked bamboo scent. The freshly squeezed scrub uplifts the mood with its delightfully tasty smell, while it softly exfoliates and revitalizes the skin. Rinse off the scrub with a quick shower without soap to let the nourishing and soothing properties soak into your skin then off to massage. Inspired by the preparation of Pattaya’s local dessert, the massage starts with warm bamboo stick compress to help ease tension from the body. The amount of pressure applied depends on the guest’s preference. The journey continues with the dreamily Devarana Signature Massage. Guests can choose from

four signature massage oil blends, each characterizes the touch of nature that matches different personality types and offers distinct results. The selection also features different base oils for guests with allergic reactions. Glee has enchanting and uplifting aroma layers of lemon, lemongrass and galbanum with a hint of lavender. Breeze is a fresh and cool blend of orange flower, cypress and thyme for a relaxing feel. Mellow evokes a romantic scent with the sweet floral blend of absolute rose, chamomile and lavender. The rebalancing Cherish oil has a heartwarming wild blend of sandalwood with a hint of vetiver and patchouli. Exclusive to Devarana Spa, the unique massage combines strong

pressures of Thai, Ayurveda and Shiatsu techniques with Swedish and aromatherapy influences for the ultimate soothing and pampering experience. The signature massage comes together with a bowl of hot water with freshly sliced kaffir lime and orange for respiratory clearing. Pattaya’s Delight is priced at 3,750 baht net per person.

CLEANING UP IN THE CLEANING UP BUSINESS Nowadays it is quite common to see the term “no task too big or too small” used by companies in promoting their products. One company that should make the claim with considerable justification is Karcher, the Germany-based firm known for their high-pressure cleaners, floor care equipment and window vacuum cleaners - among many other things.

S

o just how big is big? Well, among the tasks the company have taken on in the past under their cultural sponsorship programme are the cleaning up of the: - Four US Presidents’ faces at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota (2005); - Statue of Liberty for its Centennial Celebrations (1986); - The London Eye wheel in the English Capital (2013);

What's Inside:

- Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate (1990); - Space Needle in Seattle (2008); - Colossi Memnon in Luxor (2003); - Colonnades on St Peter’s Square in Rome (1998); and - Statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro (1980) Pretty big, huh? All iconic landmarks now looking a whole lot better. Continued on page 4/24

International Realtors® Conference & Expo and more!

For Realtors® across the globe and for the property market in general, the yearly National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Conference & Expo is the ultimate and most well attended industry event. NAR is the largest trade organization in the world with 1.2 million individual members from within 81 real estate associations in more than 60 countries. Some 20,000 members and guests are expected to assemble this year at the Orange County Convention Center in West Orlando, Florida, November 4 to 7. One year ago, preceding the NAR Conference, was one of the most important and progressive months for the Asia Pacific’s

real estate industry ever. First, the Real Estate Sales and Marketing Association of Thailand (RESAM) once again joined forces with the NAR presenting the world’s most highly-recognized real estate education and business opportunity: the Certified International Property Specialists Training Course (CIPS). The five-day seminar, RESAM’s second CIPS training course, was in Bangkok, where 35 Thai and international real estate professionals earned designations as International Property Specialists by America’s NAR. The program was taught by the highly-accredited David Wyant--a two-time NAR CIPS Best Instructor of the year recipient. Having been taught by Wyant will certainly go a long way in solving the credibility problems facing so many in Thailand who lack formal real estate education and certification to achieve international recognition. Speaking of credibility problems facing the Thai real estate industry, July 27 to 31 2015 marked the NAR’s first ever International Realtors Conference outside the United States of America. This groundbreaking event clearly demonstrated that the NAR had now reached out beyond the borders of the United States to support the growing interest in property ownership throughout the world. For its first venture into globalizing our real estate industry, the Chicago-based trade group had its sights set on grooming the Asia Pacific and ASEAN region specifically to be its ‘gateway into Asia’ as the middleclass boom here that already has stimulated tremendous growth in home ownership is certain to further generate demand for

real estate education and better industry standards. We here in Thailand were very excited to support the Philippines as the NAR’s International Conference organizers as they welcomed the Realtor world to this auspicious industry event. And I am happy to say that the event was so successful that it was again in Asia this year-- August 31 to September 3 in Incheon South Korea. It, too, was well attended with speakers and exhibitors from across the globe. One of the primary components of the South Korea conference was a closed door Regional Leadership Summit attended by leaders of NAR’s cooperating associations (bilateral partners) throughout the Asia Pacific and beyond. I was honored to have been invited as a guest speaker on the topic of the Asia Pacific Middle Class Explosion. In my Power Point presentation, I focused on the growing middle class needs in housing and real estate services. The Asia Pacific has a very exciting real estate future for sure! Now we in the Asia Pacific have a few of our own regional events that are way up there on the world scale of real estate industry events that are a must to attend. One which was very well attended and received was the third annual ASEAN Real Estate Networking Alliance (ARENA) in Bangkok last month. When I say very well attended, how about 225 Philippine delegates, almost 30 from Malaysia, and about 20 from Singapore. The event had attendees and delegations from 8 of the 10 ASEAN nations; only Laos and Brunei were absent, although both had shown their support and pledged to send delegates next year. I was also a guest speaker for this event and as well moderated the Thailand forum

panel discussion that was well received. What was particularly exciting was to see the delegations in attendance from Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar; each country sent their national association’s top officials. The highlight of the ARENA confab was another groundbreaking ASEAN document drafting event. Representatives of each country met on stage for a formal signing of an MOU establishing an ASEAN Mutual Recognition Agreement dedicated to improving professional standards throughout the region. Representing Thailand was Dr. Sopon Pornchokchai of the prestigious Thai Appraisal Foundation. Now formally empowered, this ASEAN Real Estate Networking Alliance member MOU was no sooner signed when the ARENA representatives began actively discussing ASEAN regional standardized real estate education, examinations and licensing. Yes, a real estate licensing body for the entire ASEAN region is close indeed and that is something that will move our region into the global real estate market in a very big way. A d d i t i o n a l l y, T h a i l a n d ’s o w n International REALTORS® Conference & Expo is scheduled in Bangkok next summer, jointly sponsored by RESAM, the Thailand Real Estate Brokers Association (TREBA) and the Thailand Real Estate Association (TREA).

CLEANING UP IN THE CLEANING UPMoreBUSINESS up to date, the company

was the official cleaning equipment supplier to the recently concluded Rio Olympics. We say Karcher is Germany based but it claims to be the world market leader in cleaning technology, employing more than 10,000 people Worldwide. A couple of years back the company posted sales revenue of 2.12

billion Euro (US$2.84 billion) and sold 12.72 million machines. Karcher has 100 subsidiaries in 60 countries and among them is Thailand. The company is now represented here in Pattaya with a showroom at the lower level of the new Harbor Pattaya next to Foodland in Central Pattaya Road. There you can either buy or hire their equipment for both commercial and domestic jobs. So, for example, if your windows are in need of a regular thorough clean, a machine from Karcher may just fit the "no job too small" bill. Were you aware that in countries such as Germany, the UK, France,

Mexico, and the USA, the word Karcher is now colloquially used as being synonymous with a cleaning system using high-pressure water, used to clean cars, outdoor equipment and the like? It’s a bit like Jacuzzi being an accepted term for a spa bath, even though the Jacuzzi companies might not be the actual makers of the device. Also there is now a verb “to Karcher” or to “Karcherize”! The company can “thank” French

politician Nicolas Sarkozy for it. Sarkozy once declared that an area outside Paris would be “cleaned out with a Karcher” (nettoyer la cite au Karcher)----meaning all criminals and other undesirables should be removed and washed out. Not quite the use that Karcher machines are intended for… but everyone knew what he meant. So if you have a cleaning job that requires some real “muscle” to get it done, it sounds like you ought

to think about using a Karcher machine for the task. We mentioned some very big uses at the start of this article but the company really does have a product that addresses most day-to-day needs. If you want to know more about what Karcher’s products can do for you, we suggest you get along to Harbor Pattaya and check them out, or you can ring them on 086 407 4260. text & photos Courtesy of REM MAGAZINE

Expedia announces next generation partnership with Marriott Marriott integrates Expedia’s package product to help drive incremental demand The Expedia group has announced a new partnership with Marriott International, Inc. (NASDAQ: MAR), which integrates Expedia’s technology to power Marriott’s own dynamic packaging platform “Vacations by Marriott” on Marriott.com in the United States. Expedia fosters a test and learn environment that allows the company to leverage its world class technology to identify and test new products that meet partner business goals, while also adapting to changes in the marketplace. A strategic initiative that has been in development for months, Marriott has integrated Expedia’s best-in-class dynamic packaging technology into the Vacations by Marriott Hotel and flight packages

product with its world-class selection of air inventory, tours, attractions and ground transportation options accessible on Marriott.com. Travellers accessing Marriott.com to book a hotel can now also combine their accommodations with a flight booking from the more than 475 Expedia airline partners. Package bookings typically have twice the length of stay, twice the booking window, and half the cancellation rate of a standalone hotel-only booking, making them an attractive source of incremental demand for owners. “We believe there is considerable untapped opportunity between our two companies to drive value to hotel owners and travellers alike by strengthening our Vacations

by Marriott’s offering,” said Arne M. Sorenson, CEO of Marriott International. “We are thrilled to launch this new product with Expedia’s technology, and to explore new areas of partnership beyond our existing distribution relationship.” “We’re going through an exciting period where we are evolving how we think about our business, and especially how we think about and work with our partners,” said Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of the Expedia group. “Our investments in technology, marketing and data analysis help us to better serve partners and travellers around the world, and enable us to move our value beyond distribution, for the benefit of our partners. We’re excited about the Marriott collaboration, which is born out of our test and learn philosophy, and is testament to the strength of our partnership.”

Business News Rise of Chinese tourists drive booming APAC tourism; Opportunity for hoteliers Shared accommodation poses challenges as operators review operational models CBRE Research launches its Hotel Megatrends viewpoint which analyses the two megatrends currently reshaping the regional hospitality industry: increasing numbers of Chinese tourists, and growth of shared accommodation. The report also provides recommendations for hotel operators on how best to respond to these trends. The Asia Pacific tourism sector has been booming in recent years, supported by a growing middleclass and rising household incomes, which are enabling more people to take holidays overseas—providing a significant opportunity for the hotels sector. Intra-regional tourism is forecast to grow by 286.3 million trips by 2020 and will remain the key demand driver as people are most likely to travel within the same region for their first overseas trip. International tourist arrivals to the region have also been growing steadily. United Nations World Tourism Organization figures show that the region welcomed 279.2 million international tourist arrivals in 2015 and is predicted to increase to 355 million in 2020. However, despite the increase of tourist arrivals in recent years, hotel performance has been losing momentum. This mismatch between tourism growth and hotel performance is partially due to the struggling traditional full service hotel segment, which has found it challenging to maintain its price premium amid high fixed costs. In addition, revenue among hotels in this segment have been negatively impacted by weaker demand for

meeting and convention facilities from multinationals, who remain very cost sensitive. Chinese Tourists Provide Significant Opportunity for Hotel Sector Much of the growth seen in the region’s tourism is being driven by China. The total number of Chinese outbound tourists rose by 10 percent year-on-year to 128 million in 2015, while spending grew by 26 percent over the same period to reach US$292 billion. China is expected to continue to lead growth, with around 134 million intra-regional trips forecast to be taken by mainland Chinese by 2020. In 2015, China ranked in the top three tourism source markets for ten out of 12 major countries in the region. Chinese arrivals to Japan doubled on a year-on-year basis in 2015, thanks to the rapid depreciation of the yen and more accommodative visa policies. Elsewhere, Thailand, which remains the top destination for Chinese outbound tourists (excluding Hong Kong), recorded 71.7 percent year-on-year growth in Chinese arrivals in 2015. However, according to research by the Financial Times, Chinese tourists generally spend the largest portion of their budget on shopping and just a small portion on accommodation. “In the first half of 2016, Chinese arrivals have continued to be Thailand’s largest feeder market making up 30 percent of tourist arrivals to Thailand, and accounted for 38 percent of total arrivals to Phuket. Hotel performance has continued to be driven mainly by strong Chinese arrivals with record

high occupancy the first half of the year,” reported James Pitchon, head of Research & Consulting, CBRE Thailand. “China will continue to lead growth in outbound travel and spending. While previously Chinese tourists may have seemed reluctant to spend big on accommodation, there are signs that they are beginning to take a greater interest in hotel quality and service, and result in the greater appreciation of and spending on accommodation. This is a significant opportunity, but hoteliers need to ensure they provide a service offering that meets the requirements of this increasingly important demographic,” commented Robert McIntosh, executive director at CBRE Hotels, Asia Pacific. Research indicates that Chinese tourists are not overly price sensitive towards accommodation—a 2013 survey found that only 10 percent of respondents selected price as their most important consideration when selecting a place to stay on an overseas trip. “Chinese tourists are most concerned about the comfort, star rating and facilities offered by hotels, along with the hotel’s reputation and recommendations by friends and family or from travel sites. Cultural and language barriers, such as Mandarin speaking staff, signs and literature was also seen as important and Chinese travelers are increasingly demanding that hotels provide them with tailored services that better fit their culture, while helping them to overcome the language barrier,” McIntosh added.

Shared Accommodation Poses Major Challenge While the increase in Chinese outbound tourists will drive demand for accommodation, the rise of shared accommodation poses a major challenge for the traditional hotel industry. Advances in technology have made it possible for hosts to offer rooms or apartments for shortterm rental via online platforms. Airbnb is the market leader, covering more than 191 countries and offering more than two million rooms or apartments for rent. Other active players include HomeAway, FlipKey, Rommorama and national level operators such as Tujia in China and Homie in Singapore. The main competitive advantage of Airbnb is the lower price. In most Asia Pacific markets, Airbnb’s ADR (average daily rate) is lower than in traditional hotels, with the price gap over 200 percent in six markets. Aside from offering lower prices, properties on Airbnb often come with free amenities such as a washing machine and kitchen, which traditional hotels rarely offer.

Price Difference Between Hotels and Airbnb “Short-term rentals are increasingly used as a substitute for hotel rooms. At the same time, the growth of shared accommodation is posing a major challenge to the traditional hotel industry. The ability to offer consumers lower prices and a unique experience in often unconventional accommodation is prompting traditional hotel operators to rethink their operating models,” said Ada Choi, senior director of Research, CBRE Asia Pacific. “The growth of shared accommodation does pose a longerterm challenge for the hotel industry, especially during peak seasons, and this trend has prompted hotel operators to review their operational models. Several multi-brand hotel chains have responded by expanding their portfolios to the affordable segment with younger travelers in mind. These hotels have utilized innovations such as mobile check-in services and more open spaces and common areas for guests to socialize with each other, all at a lower price point,” McIntosh said.

Dusit Thani Pattaya appoints new executive chef B. Pathmanathan Balagangdaram has joined Dusit Thani Pattaya as executive chef handling the overall kitchen operations of the five-star Dusit brand hotel. A Malaysian national, he started his culinary profession in a beach resort in Penang, Malaysia and worked his way out to China and Australia where he successfully opened two beach resorts. Dusit International took him under its wing to open its properties in Maldives and Abu Dhabi. During a span of more than 20 years in the field of food and preparation, Chef Pathma has had the opportunity to work in other exotic places including Oman, Brunei Darussalam, the Island of Samoa and Denarau Island in Fiji. Prior to his new role at Dusit Thani Pattaya, he was the executive chef at Shangri-La Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia. He speaks Malay, English, Indonesian, Tamil and Hokkien Chinese. Western, Asian, Malay and Pacific Island cuisines are among his culinary expertise.

Youth Focus A Happy Child Makes a Successful Child! by Jinny Madan

We o f t e n t h i n k a “successful” child makes a happy child! This has become the norm in our society due to the fear that the child will be left behind and be stuck in mediocrity. Many of these children are raised in an increasingly hurried and pressured life style. Parents always want the best for their children but simply forget to enjoy the child they have in front of them. Parents want their child to excel in every area of his/her life and often feel pride and happiness when their child succeeds without realizing that they are cultivating a competition mindset in their child. Ironically, they may forget to let their child be a child and enjoy his/her childhood. ‘All work and no

play makes Jack a dull boy” Unfortunately, the pressure on children starts very early, the parents start to expect a child to learn how to write and read very early. The parents fill their schedules with tutoring sessions and other extracurricular activities way too early, which cause many kids to collapse under too much parental pressure. Most of these children suffer from sleep deprivation, eating disorders, excessive worrying, burnout, and fear of failure. When parents become so focused on their children’s achievements, rather than learning goals, their overall development suffers. Most important, the parent-child bonding and relationship suffer. In other words, the parents may be present for all their

games, recital or events, but missing out on quality time, listening, joking and doing fun things together. These might seem to be not important but they are. Children need to see that parents love them for WHO THEY ARE, not just for what THEY CAN DO OR ACHIEVE. The schools and parents need to find the balance to allow children to reach their potential without pressure pushing them beyond their limits and giving them more personal free playtime to learn and grow in their own pace. “Several studies have linked feelings of anxiety and depression with that of perfectionism and an overly critical self-evaluation. Other studies have linked this perfectionism with highly critical parents who instill pressures to excel. Perfectionism is challenging to the individual and has a broader effect on

society because it may stifle creativity and unencumbered thinking.” Childhood is the time of free play and discovery. When the parents rush the children through it, they end up losing their innocent stage that will not come back. Many studies have shown that children learn best in an environment that allows them to explore and play. Play stimulates children’s

Frankenstein’s 100th birthday celebration

Now he even appears with Bugs Bunny

The first silent movie about Frankenstein was shown in 1911, a classic which turned up a few years ago after being presumed lost. But down through the decades, Dr Frankenstein’s creation in flesh and electricity has been depicted in very many ways. Hardly any of them have anything to do with Mary Shelley’s novel of 1818 which hardly matters but deserves a mention. The definitive version is still the 1931 Frankenstein starring Boris Karloff as The Monster. Contrary to popular rumour, Karloff only played the creation three times in a full length movie but that was enough to identify him as the prototype for the next three or four generations of film goers. These early movies of the 1930s also set out the basic principles of a Frankenstein horror movie – that the learned doctor makes a creature out of bits of corpses and the creature turns against him and runs amock. You, the public, tend to lose out at this point.

Nobody quite pulled it off like Boris Karloff

Frankenstein always reflects his era. In the 1930s and the 1940s many people believed that mad scientists would bring about the end of civilization as it was known. The weapons of mass destruction created in world war two only served to underline the threat. As originally portrayed by Hollywood, the Frankenstein monster was a shy and even sociable guy who went mad only when pursued and ostracized by other humans. The evil genius was the rotten

scientist and not the hapless creation. It’s never stated in the movies that Dr Frankenstein was a nazi. But he might well have been. There are certainly shades of a very perverse science in the medical experiments of Dr Mengele at Auschwitz. By the early 1940s, Hollywood was wondering what to do with Frankenstein. He was becoming a bit of a bore. So the concept of humour was introduced in such sequels as House of Frankenstein in 1944 or Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein in 1948. These movies had very little, if anything, to do with Mary Shelley, but were a combination of stupidity and fun, fun, fun. The films also kept in employment many of the horror actors of the epoch, particularly Bela Lugosi, who found himself so typecast that he was very largely restricted to so-called horror movies. It was the British studio Hammer Films which saved Frankenstein from becoming a comic character. In 1957 there appeared The Curse of Frankenstein, pairing Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee as the doctor and the monster

respectively, and bringing a more psychological flavor to the tale. Another innovation was the use of beautifully rich colour (compared with Hollywood’s black and white) which showed up wonderfully well all that gore and blood. Or, at any rate, as much gore and blood as the British Board of Film Censors of the time would allow. Sequels inevitably followed and sex began to rear its naked head in the more permissive area of the 1960s and 1970s. In Frankenstein Created Woman in 1966, the “monster” is a beautiful young woman’s body containing her lover’s soul bent on revenge against some local dandies. It sounds awful and it was just that. Hammer also threw in the 1970 Horror of Frankenstein which tried to introduce a young, hip Frankenstein. It completely flopped. Hammer productions were nose diving by then. Dozens more Frankensteins were to follow in the late twentieth century, but the one that received the most attention was Kenneth Branagh’s 1994 attempt, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, a title which

The wicked witch prepares Bugs for Frankenstein’s lunch

suggests a close affinity with Mary Shelley’s novel. Not really. It’s true that the action takes place in the Arctic, as it did in the original novel, but actor Robert de Niro is a non-entity. He just looks like someone who has been in a bad car accident. This is the Frankenstein monster with a screw loose – the human sociopath and criminal on the run rather than the ungodly creation of Shelley’s conception. In the early twenty first century, Frankensteins have continued to pour out of the studios. They are surely topical as we worry about what we buy in the supermarket – Frankenfood (not made with wholesome ingredients) or Frankencars (made out of bits and pieces of various models). So we are back where we started – worrying about what the

scientists are doing to our lives. Concerns about what physicists and chemists are plotting in their laboratories continue to haunt us lesser mortals. But only up to a point. Frankenstein these days is marketed rather like Coca Cola or Elvis Presley. You can find Boris Karloff lookalikes on TV programmes and in pop songs. Even children’s books and cartoons show the monster as instanced by episodes in Bugs Bunny, The Flintstones and Tom and Jerry. You can buy Frankenstein action figures and Frankenstein related toys. There’s even an advert for the chocolate treat Twix in which a little girl demands the bar from the monster rather than a bunch of flowers as in the 1931 movie. How times have indeed changed, but Frankenstein’s future is assured.

How To Save Your Marriage That’s Heading For A Divorce Even if you feel your marriage is past the point of no return, sliding fast toward divorce and dissolution, there is still hope for a quick turnaround back to the warm feelings and fun of the early years. No matter what the circumstances, divorce hurts and causes lasting negative repercussions in both people’s lives.

3. Make it fun… Start dating again One of the most common complaints of married couples is that the magic, the spark is gone. Work, kids, and other responsibilities get in the way of romance, and the couple may begin to take each other for granted. The marriage requires just as much attention as your job, house and children.

by Professor Blunt

(Jan 23 – Feb  Aquarius 22) Because you tell lies

much of the time, nobody of consequence trusts you. This is why you are interviewed in the supervisor’s office every time you approach the immigration desk at Bangkok airport. Don’t believe the rumour that you will soon be going on a long journey. In fact, it’s only a few kilometers to the local crematorium. Pisces (Feb 23 – Mar 22) True, you are brimming with self-confidence but the downside is that you think everyone else is a complete dickhead. This explains why you are never invited to parties and why most people won’t sit next to you in a baht bus. All the heavenly signs agree that most Pisces are, and will always be, complete burks. Aries (Mar23 – Apr 22) You have a wild imagination and think everyone is following you with an axe which is stupid. The only time it happened was when you walked out of an Indian restaurant without paying the bill. Your finances are suspect and don’t be surprised if you are refused admittance to the better supermarkets in town. Taurus (Apr 23 – May 22) Apart from being bull-headed, you are a hopeless drunk like most people born under this particular animal. This condition has caused you to neglect personal hygiene to the extent that most laundries reject your business or add a stiff surcharge. You need to note that seven alcohol units a week does not mean seven large bottles of imported Scotch. Gemini (May 23 – June 22) You are popular only because you are a bisexual with a big bank balance. You are inclined to expect too much for too little which results in your being regarded as a Cheap Charlie. Geminis are notorious for hoarding pornography and continually changing their personal computer password. Cancer (June 23 – July 22) You are sympathetic to other people’s problems which is why you are a sucker who has lost all the money you brought to this country. If Pattaya had a welfare fund for foreigners, you would certainly be a prime candidate. As it is, and just like other Cancer persons, you will likely spend much of your later life in prison.

If you feel like your marriage relationship is out of control and headed for divorce, consider the effective methods outlined in this article to help put it back on a smooth course. First and foremost, both the husband and wife must be on board to regain a positive relationship… 1. Learn how to communicate and really listen to your spouse A husband and wife must be able to work together to make their marriage strong and enjoyable. One of the first and most important aspects of this teamwork is communication. Learn how to open up and speak the truth, no matter what the situation, and, in turn, learn how to listen and receive the truth with an open mind. While marriage is an emotional union, there has to be a degree of objectivity and empathy when it comes to communication. Both people need to feel comfortable that whatever they say will be received and considered without being attacked. 2. Learn to compromise and the art of selflessness

Go on dates with your spouse to reignite those fun and romantic days at the beginning of your relationship. The closeness of a married couple depends on having mutual experiences, memories, inside jokes and secrets together. Forget your project at work, the kid’s math homework and the dishes for a night and just go and enjoy each other. This not only can be very romantic, but it gives an excellent opportunity to practice the number one point above: communication. 4. Talk to a professional therapist or counselor Seeking help from a relationship counselor or marriage therapist should always be done before the final decision to divorce is made. If you are unable to open lines of communication, get past stubborn ideals or reignite the romance, an objective professional can help.

A marriage is a partnership, emotionally, legally and financially. If two partners always struggle to get their own way, the partnership will end. Divorces happen when the married couple cannot compromise about things such as parenting styles, social activities and, especially, the family budget and finances. A good marriage involves a lot of give and take. It’s not always going to be even, but it should overall be even when decisions are involved. Compromise is the ability to loosen your hold on what you think is the right or wrong way to do something. If both spouses are mostly happy with a decision, you’ve succeeded.

Sometimes a couple can be blinded to the real conflict and will find it impossible to work through pain and hurt to get to the crux of the matter that is really tearing them apart. Counselors are trained to uncover that source issue and help resolve it with the married couple. She will also teach the husband and wife actionable steps to take to bring their marriage back from the edge of divorce.

 Leo

(July 23 – Aug 22) Although you consider yourself to be a born leader, others think you are an idiot. This is why there is always a poor attendance at the expatriate society when you are the guest speaker. Your arrogance is absolutely disgusting and, to cap it all, you are a thieving so-and-so. Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22) You are a complete cheapskate who looks for balloons outside a bar since you suspect there will be a free buffet on offer. Most Virgos came to Pattaya to find non expensive sex although they usually claim to be interested in temples and elephants. Virgos make excellent pimps. Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22) You are the artistic type who spends a lot of time on Thepprasit Road. You are looking for people who can debate the Renaissance era with you. In other words, your chances of ever being employed or having any serious cash are zero. Be careful if you are a woman as most Libras are whores. Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 22) You are the worst of the lot, self centred, clever but totally untrustworthy. Nobody would ever let you borrow their condo ownership papers even for a moment and for obvious reasons. You wanted to be a lawyer but failed your exams. The chances of Scorpios being murdered are higher than average. Sagittarius (Nov 23 – Dec 22) Because you believe that life is a complete lottery, you have a reckless tendency to rely on luck rather than on common sense. Your chances of being involved in a serious road accident are much higher than average, especially as Sagittarians are well known as hopeless drunks. Capricorn (Dec 23 – Jan 22) You are a total failure in every respect and came to Pattaya to be with others of your goatish kind. You are incapable of the simplest operations and invariably cause an area power outage when you try to change a bulb. The stars are unanimous that you should commit suicide and save us all a great deal of inconvenience during the current hot weather.

Local Sports Boris and Cindy steal the show Crystal Bay Twenty-seven golfers turned out to take on the challenge of Crystal Bay. The time, Thursday, the venue Crystal Bay, the challenge is to beat all in front and behind. Was that achieved? Well some did and others did not! Playing from the yellow tees and playing courses C and B (in that order) it was game on. Martin Todd mentioned to me that something needed to be said about the course, “It was in top condition. Greens played true and the fairways were also in top nick. You will see by the scores it was a course that was a pleasure to Play.” Crystal Bay, you can take your hat off and enjoy the accolades! The weather was quite warm with a slight breeze, which added some comfort to the day. We ran two flights for the day and had all novelty prizes in play. A flight saw Fred Cuypers (Boris) show a clean pair of heels to the rest of his group, 42 points showed him as the standout winner on the day. Second, Tom McMahon in his farewell game for this trip, and evergreen Martin Todd taking out 3rd spot. B flight was won (with another great score) by Sandy Leiper, 41 points saw him take the prize from first time on the podium Glenn Smith. I am sure with a score like that, Glenn, we will be seeing your name up here often. Third place (by countback) went to Shane Young. Chockies was great to see Allain Taddai back playing golf after his extended layoff. Welcome back, Papa! On a special note, in B flight 2nd and 3rd had 39 points then we had five golfers with 38 points! Results: A Grade (0 – 17 hcp) 1st - Fred Cuypers (17) 42 points 2nd - Tom McMahon (10) 39 points 3rd - Martin Todd (11) 39 points

Back at ‘The Swan’, we welcomed Bill Steinmann, Dick Brainbridge, Wann Makmul, Nat Rukkid and Phil Taylor. We said goodbye to Tom McMahon heading back to work, travel safe, mate, see you soon. Mine host Peter Grey was thanked for putting on the fine spread.

Bunker Boys Golf Report Pattavia G.C. All the chatter back at the M Club concerned many of the unforgiving greens on this lovely track. Unforgiving in the sense that you either holed it on your first attempt or you most likely three or four putted. The pin placements were strategically placed in areas that gave you the feeling of being on a trolley car in San Francisco: up and down or down and up and back again was the order of the day. We welcomed back two of our guys: Tony Robbins and Lance Conway Jones. Tony had a hard time gripping a club after being away from Pattaya for nearly a month, and Lance was one of the few players, along with Peter Allen, who managed to negotiate the tricky greens. The Bunker Boys pride themselves on knowing and playing by the rules of golf; and always observing the finest golf etiquette. This adherence to etiquette was on display today as one of our groups found themselves struggling horrendously, quite obviously slowing the pace of play, and allowed their compatriots to play through. An outstanding gesture of camaraderie and display of etiquette.

by Peter Grey

Parichat G.C. At 6,300 yards off the blues, Parichat is one of the most demanding courses in the area. In fact, if you are lucky enough to finish the round with the same ball you started with, you would most likely say you had a good day, regardless of score. It's the kind of track you need to play a half dozen times to get a true feel for and, even then, precision placement of your ball is paramount in order to stay out of the hazards. Two unusual occurrences today: Les Cobban had an eagle on the 570 yard par6 12th hole, and a Thai six-ball let one of our groups play through. This was the second round in a row that Jimmy, Neil, and their playing partners were being held up by slow play but allowed to play through due to an understanding of proper golf etiquette. Colin finally found his game face on the 10th hole and romped home with 20 points on the back to take first place with a total of 30. Les Cobban, even with the eagle, could only manage 28 for second place, and Neil Carter outdueled three other players on count back to take third with 27. Results: 1st - Colin Greig (11) 30 points 2nd - Les Cobban (8) 28 points 3rd - Neil Carter (15) 27 points cb

Near Pins: Raleigh Gosney (2) and Jimmy Carr Khao Kheow C.C Many of our guys were happy to be back on familiar turf after the Wednesday round at Par ichat. Some could even be heard to say, "now, this is a real golf course". Khao Kheow is indeed a world class championship course and it was in fine nick on this beautiful Friday afternoon in golf paradise. One suggestion, however, would be for the caddie master to be diligent in providing bunker rakes for the caddies. Clubbing it should refer to a night out on the town, not using your wedge to repair bunkers. Both Trevor and Takeshi proved their mettle by hanging tough after a poor front nine: Takeshi with 22 points on the back to take first place with a total of 35, and Trevor with 22 on the back for a total of 31 to take third place. The par-4 9th hole on the A-course was the scene of the exclamation, "WOW! what a putt", as Colin sinks a thirty-footer that moves up and then down, left and then right, before gently creeping over the edge to find the bottom of the tin. Results: 1st - Takeshi (14) 35 points 2nd - Geoff Parker (14) 34 points 3rd - Trevor Priestly (22) 31 points Near Pins: John Philippines, Colin Greig, Raleigh Gosney and Geoff Parker

Khao Kheow In high spirits, the standard Monday field of 25 punters gathered in Soi Chaiyapoon eagerly awaiting the challenge ahead. Final series in Australian football is closer and a lot of bus chatter was based on that. The challenge being Khao Kheow, a great course at a great price, was what we were to look forward too. Weather was on our side so I guess it was all left up to us. We played courses A & C from the yellow tees, our ladies played from the red tees. Two flights were the order of the day. A flight were for golfers 0 to 18. Denis Steele came up trumps taking out that flight with 37 points, closely followed by our “Court Jester” JJ Harney. With Hugh Knox taking out 3rd spot in his last game for this trip. B flight Rona Carungay handing in an impressive card of 44 points. A great effort, Rona, I keep telling you, Skilts, “She is coming to get you.” Coming in second was Patrick Poussier with John Anderson taking 3rd ,beating Cindy Lauper on a count back.

Local Sports PSC Tropical Golf from BJ's by Derek Brook Khao Kheow (Stableford) This is always one of our favourite stops, especially this day as most of our players had zipped off down to Hua Hin for a few days away and we had relatively few for the trip. But of course the quality was there as proved by playing off the yellow tees. Up to KK we went and off we went with the first group off a little early and the test to be the A & C nines. So away on the C1 and our three ball had carts so with the way ahead clear we were in for a fast 18 holes. The other groups of ours were all four balls and most players were walking, so we zapped ahead and on a course in great condition we were flying, great day ahead. Then after four holes we hit the dead stop, and the fun went out of the day. We hit the five ball walking ahead and the great day became ‘the day to be forgotten’. Normally we

would have been allowed through but on this day, despite the fact that the caddies phoned ahead to their caddies, we were stuck for the next 14 holes until we finished. Even our four balls behind caught up with us on the back nine. You can never find a marshall when you need one. The four balls enjoyed themselves, they just had a nice amble around on a great course. But despite taking long breaks at every stop we were still waiting to play nearly every shot. Still, no marshalls. Still I suppose we are all going to get one of these days and it is sad because the staff here are really good. They are also most helpful. The course was in fine condition but there was a bit of wind, but the views were also great, we had a long time to see them all. The rest came in just after us saying what a fine day they had. They all just managed to live.

First two with one of BJ’s finest Back at BJ’s, it was soon into the results. The winner on the day was Tom Herrington with 37 points ahead of a countback on 33 points that saw John Pierrel in second and Barry Elphick in third. No none of the

first group were amongst the winners but could be spotted in the corner having a few beers, then some more! T.T.F.N. Near Pins: Tom Herrington, Tommy Marshall and Barry Elphick

Queen Crowned Golfing Champion! by Mark Beales

A young golfing star from near Pattaya has won a major competition in the United States. Queen, who studies at Garden International School (GIS) shot a remarkable 14 under par to take the title in the Girls 11 to 12 category. Queen finished an astonishing 22 shots ahead of the runner-up, after three rounds. The World Stars of Junior Golf contest was held at the Angel Park Golf Course in Las Vegas. Queen has studied at GIS since 2008 and won many major tournaments. She is ranked number 1 in Thailand for her age. GIS is based in Ban Chang near Pattaya.

Queen receives her trophy after her US triumph.

The seventh round of the GP3 Series took place at the cathedral of speed, Autodromo di Monza in Italy. Sandy Stuvik took P5 in Friday's free practice and the pace was looking good for the weekend. Qualifying took place on Saturday morning and Sandy finished in a difficult 12th place, after a red flag during the session compromised his session. Race 1 on Saturday afternoon, Sandy finished in 12th position, after a lot of position changes and an exciting race at the Monza circuit. Race 2 on Sunday morning saw Sandy have a difficult start, but during the course of the race, Sandy managed to climb his way up to 6th position after starting 12th. During the battling with other drivers Sandy was involved in a contact, and dropped down to 12th. After race penalties Sandy classified 15th.

“It was a tough weekend, we showed that we were fast and we got the 2nd fastest lap of the race, but now we'll have to investigate why our starts are not as good as before. Our race pace has now improved and I'm excited for Sepang in a month's time” Sandy ended. Sandy is sponsored by the Singha Corporation, The Pizza Company, Dacon Inspection Services, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, Thai Airways, the Sports Authority of Thailand, and the Royal Automobile Association of Thailand.

Queen checks out her remarkable score card.

Barry Crowned at St Andrews St Andrews 2000 Hill – St The Tropical golfers treated themselves to a rare outing to St Andrews. It’s more expensive than preferred, but we took advantage of Sports Day pricing to soften the blow, and the usual walkers don't mind being “forced” take a ride once in a while. Also sometimes you just have to test your golf skills against a tough foe and keep yourself humble. With Hua Hin trips going on, we still had 15 Tropicals show up for the challenge. St Andrews was in its usual good condition, but not excellent as one would expect. Still the fairways and greens are utterly playable and better than most in the area. About four greens were in various stages of recovery from recent coring, but at this course, if that is your major obstacle to a good score, you are having an excellent round and wouldn't care. There were plenty of low scores for the day, but surprisingly if you didn't make handicap your job after the round was to listen and clap. Barry Elphick (c/h 30) used his extra strokes to great advantage and gathered an impressive 40 points. Great score on a tough layout! Tom Herrington (20) finished a few strokes

You & Your Pets

Seven tips for pet food safety Most manufacturers of pet food set high standards to preclude unsafe food from reaching your pet’s bowl. But you also must take appropriate precautions, if not, you risk food spoilage occurring in your own home due to improper food storage. Here are some tips: 1-Store dry pet food and treats

in a cool, dry place (under 25º C). 2-If possible, store dry pet food in its original bag (folded shut) inside a clean, dedicated plastic container with a lid. Storing food in the original packaging has the added benefit of retaining the pet food’s barcode, expiration date, and batch code – all of which are important in the event of a recall.

3-Wash and dry storage containers before refilling them. 4-Promptly refrigerate or discard any leftover wet pet food. 5-Wash your hands with warm soapy water before and after handling pet food. That helps keep the food from being contaminated with bacteria and other microorganisms, such as Salmonella. Washing your hands after handling pet food protects you and others in the unlikely event the food is contaminated. 6-Wash pet food bowls daily and water bowls every day or two. 7-Don’t keep pet food past the expiration date printed on the side or bottom of the package or can. Dog and cat food expiration dates (sometimes known as “best by” or “use by” dates) are established to ensure the safety of your pet. A few days past the expiration date probably is safe if the container has not been opened.

Cats for You in Pattaya Cats for You is a great and much needed service in our area, but Paul and Sandra point out that adopting a cat or kitten is a longterm commitment with costs such as feeding and veterinary fees. Many adopters find it’s a good idea to adopt two animals so that they can enjoy each others’ company as well as yours.

This lovely 3 coloured girl came to us with 4 babies all of which have now gone to new homes. She has just had her operation so now cannot have any more. She is a very friendly girl who just loves playing and giving cuddles!!

Chalky & Betsy

These 2 small kittens were rescued separately but, as you can see, they are the best of friends now. They are typical kittens and tear around the place for an hour or so before falling fast asleep.

Some tips to help provide for your pet’s well being. We’ve reported in the past some of the foods, plants and medicines that are poisonous to household pets in general. Now the website of the Pet Poison Helpline has identified the 10 most common cat poisons: • Lilies • Canine pyrethroid insecticides (topical flea and tick medicine designed for dogs but erroneously placed on cats)

• Household cleaners • Rodenticides • Paints and varnishes • Veterinary non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Rimadyl®, Deramaxx®) • Glow sticks/glow jewelry • Amphetamines (such as ADD/ADHD drugs) • Acetaminophen (Tylenol® in brand name or generic form) • Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin® in brand name or generic form) If you believe your cat has ingested or been exposed to a potential toxin, contact your veterinarian for advice immediately. Many poisons are fast-acting and even a small delay can make a difference between life and death for your cat.

The earliest European images of dogs are found in cave paintings in Spain which date back about 12,000 years.

Tabbs

This lovely Tabby boy is now around 9 weeks old, he has 1 brother and 2 sisters too. They were rescued with their mum from the streets and are now big enough to go to a new home so please be quick to call and reserve one.

Shelley

This lovely young lady is very friendly but a little shy until you get to know her. She had 4 brothers and sisters who went to new homes a long while ago. She was sick when she was small and so missed the opportunity to be chosen. Her mum, Zero, is here as well, they would make a perfect pair for someone.

Cat Corner Tip When your cat’s an owl

Going to the Dogs... There is no faith which has never yet been broken,

except that of a truly faithful dog. ~Konrad Lorenz

Cats naturally tend to be active at night, when their superior vision lets them sneak up on prey. Most domesticated cats adjust their schedule to be active when people are awake, but this doesn't always happen. If your darling is a night owl, try providing an intense play session and a meal right before your bedtime. The burst of activity should wear Dracula out, so you can both get a good night's sleep. But if your older cat suddenly stays awake all night, check with your vet: It might be a sign of hyperthyroidism.
