Two Top Health Supplements For Men Thousands Of Pills, - But Here Are The Ones You Really Need


n order that you spend your savings wisely, we asked shrewd experts vitamin to name an all-star health supplement team for men. Judge your strengths and weaknesses, and pencil in a lineup that will work for you. Calcium To Lose Weight And Strengthen Bones Most men don’t get the recommended 1,000 mg of calcium a day (a cup of milk has 300). Men with the highest calcium intakes weigh less on average than men consuming less calcium. How much? - Aim for 1,200 mg calcium citrate -- half in the morning, half at night, to maximize absorption. Avoid coral calcium, which can be full of impurities. Tip: - If you already eat three servings of dairy a day, you won’t need the excess calcium. There’s a risk you may exceed the maximum intake of 2,500 mg. Selenium To Fight Off Cancer “No other single nutrient appears to prevent cancer more effectively 10

issue-13-Relax.indd 10

than selenium,” says Gerald F. Combs, Ph.D., director of the USDA’s Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center. It basically forces cancer cells to self-destruct. Combs’studies have linked increased selenium consumption to

a decreased risk of cancers of the prostate, colon, and lungs, among others. How much? - 200 mg a day -more when you’re sick. Research on mice, done at the University of North Carolina, suggests that low levels of selenium may make it easier for viruses to mutate, worsening symptoms of the flu. Tip: - Nature’s selenium supplement is the Brazil nut, which has 100 mcg per nut. You still need to take a multivitamin supplement; - it’s one of the best ways to reduce your risk of a number of ills, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Our favorite is “Centrum Silver,” which contains 100 percent of your recommended intake of 16 core nutrients, along with additional doses of 15 other disease fighters--such as lycopene, lutein, and selenium. (Ignore the “for adults 50+” on the label--it’s great for men of all ages.)

Remove Dark Spots, Acne Scars & Spider Veins


IPL employs Intense Pulse Light technology which has proved highly effective in improving pimple and acne scars. The procedure tightens pores which helps control excessive oil secretion, encourages collagen and elastin production to reduce appearances of scars. Skin will be naturally brightened, dullness and dark spots diminished. Skin will regain its clarity, firmness, bringing a younger, smoother look back to you again.

Carboxytherapy Magically Removes Scars with Carbondioxide


ramatically improve the appearance of scars, especially from surgery. Carbondioxide will disintegrate the connective scar tissues under the skin and improve blood and lymph circulation. Scar tissues receive more oxygen, scar size is reduced, the skin becomes softer and more even.

Colon Cleaning May Help Acne Sufferers M

any doctors and alternative medicine practitioners believe that one essential component of achieving overall bodily health is having a colon that is clean and free of the toxins that can build up over time. Many of these same doctors and alternative medicine practitioners believe that one of the benefits of colon cleansing is the improvement of acne conditions. One process of colon cleansing is called colon hydrotherapy. This cleansing process involves the gentle bathing of the large intestine, or colon. The purified warm water that is used during colon hydrotherapy helps to remove the poisons, toxic materials, and build-up of waste from the body. Unlike an enema, which only cleans the last two feet of the large intestine with only a relatively small amount of water, a colon hydrotherapy treatment cleans the colon with between fifteen and twenty-five gallons of water. This water cleans the entire colon and reaches difficult areas and areas where fecal matter tends to gather and build up. Colon hydrotherapists often recommend that hydrotherapy treatments be received in conjunction with appropriate herbal remedies. 14

issue-13-Relax.indd 14

Effective colon hydrotherapy treatments remove not only fecal material, but also excess mucus, bacteria, and parasites. Therapy treatments help to restore the colon to its original shape, which can get distorted over years of accommodating the build up of waste. The restoration of the colon to its original shape helps it to move out waste materials more effectively. Hydrotherapy treatments can also help the body to have regular bowel movements without the disturbance of constipation and diarrhea. Those who practice colon hydrotherapy truly believe that this practice rejuvenates the body as a whole. The removal of toxins and poisons helps the body to alleviate many health problems like fatigue, frequent headaches or stomachaches, weight problems, allergies, and various skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne. Colon hydrotherapy treatments also help the colon to do its job better in the future, excreting wastes more efficiently and keeping polluting toxins out of the body. A colon that is working more efficiently is one that is helping to maintain overall body and skin health.

Многие врачи и практики альтернативной медицины убеждены в ключевой роли очищенного от таксинов кишечника на пути к здоровью всего организма. Чистый от токсинов кишечник устраняет причины возникновения угревой сыпи. Еффективное очищение кишечника удаляет не только фикалии, но и излишки слизи, бактерий и паразитов. Лечение, предусмотренное в рамках этой терапии, позволяет кишечнику восстановить его первоначальную форму, изменненую годами накопленными в нем нежелательными веществами и организмами.

Your Nails Strong and Sexy Tips to Keep


hen you write down your shopping list, as you punch a phone number into your cell, while you wash dishes, do the ironing, clean the windows, or do one hundred other things that people(women very sexiest) do on any given day do you take notice of the condition of your nails? Our hands are such an integral part of our daily lives, and constantly, we risk their health and strength, often without even noticing, because of the hustle and bustle of our day-to-day activities. Take a few moments each day, or at least a few times a week, to monitor the condition of your nails - the color, the texture, the appearance of ridges or white marks. Make a greater effort to take good care of your nails, and you will be thrilled with the way they complement your wardrobe and your own personal style. Consider the following tips as a way to enhance the health and quality of your nails. Great, Healthy Nails • Apply speed-dry nail polish when time is of the essence • Drink lots of water. Keep your body hydrated everyday to maintain healthy nails. • Fortify your diet with FDA approved vitamins or supple16

ments. Your fingernails count on you to be responsible with your health and your diet. Unless instructed otherwise by your physician, increase your daily doses of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium, folic acid, protein, Vitamin B12, and zinc. • Touch up your manicure on a daily basis to prevent chips and cracks. • Your nails depend on you to maintain a healthy diet. Nail polish tips: • Finish with a clear topcoat to add gloss and sheen. • Start with a base coat to strengthen and protect the nails. • Try not to store nail polish in a room that becomes cold. The nail polish bottles may break without warning, leaving you with a big mess. To avoid breaking nails or brittle nails: • Avoid using your nails as tools. This means no picking, scratching, digging, pinching, etc. You know who you are! • Increase the amount of calcium in your diet. • Use products containing alcohol, especially perfumed lotions, sparingly. These items

can make nails prone to breaking. Wear rubber gloves when you do chores that involve continual submersion in water or contact with harsh detergents or chemicals.

Six Steps to Living Long and Staying Healthy Step 1: Give your body the energy it needs. Your body needs certain foods to stay strong and healthy. Other foods, if eaten too often, contribute to many illnesses. Here are some guidelines: •

Eat 6-11 servings a day of breads or grains, like rice, pasta, tortillas, or cereal.

Eat 3-5 servings a day of vegetables, like carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, broccoli, or peas.

Eat 2-4 servings a day of fruits, like apples, peaches, mangos, bananas, or fruit juice.

Eat 2-3 servings a day of meat, fish, beans, eggs or nuts, for protein.

Eat 2-3 servings a day of dairy products like yogurt, cheese, or milk.

Cut down on alcohol, fatty foods such as butter, grease, or oil, and “junk food” like chips or candy.

Step 2: Stay physically active. Regular physical activity helps people: •

live longer and feel better throughout their lives

be stronger and more flexible

build strong bones and fight osteoporosis

prevent depression

strengthen your ability to fight off illness

maintain weight



issue-13-Relax.indd 18

Step 3: A healthy mind is part of a healthy body. When you are in a good state of mind, you make good decisions for yourself about your job, your lifestyle, and your health. Here are some things you can do to keep your mind healthy: •

Reduce stress in your life. Try the ideas to reduce stress.

Make time in your life for things that are fun. Make a list of activities you like and make sure you have at least a little time each day for doing something you enjoy.

Get enough sleep. Most people get too little sleep. Being sleepy reduces your concentration, increases mood swings, and causes many car accidents.


It is best to get at least one half hour of exercise three times a week, but any amount of exercise is better than none at all! If you do not want 18

to go jogging or swimming, try going for a brisk walk with a friend, working vigorously in the yard, or riding your bike to work

Get help if you feel depressed or anxious for more than a few days at a time. Talk with a friend or your health care provider for some help.

Wege, um die Gesundheit zu erhalten, sind, unser Leben ernst zu nehmen, Stress wahrzunehmen und zu vermeiden. Unabhaengig von dem, ob wir Stress �wahrnehmen oder nicht, gibt es immer Situationen in unseren Leben, die Stress verursachen. Wir sollten unseren Lebensstil ändern, um gesünder, länger und mit Freude zu leben.

Путями для поддержания хорошего здоровья является то, что мы должны серьезно относиться к жизни, и остерегаться стрессовых ситуаций. Даже, если мы осознаем это, всегда есть что-то в нашей жизни, что заставляет нас нервничать. Мы должны изменить наш образ жизни, чтобы прожить более долгую и более здоровую жизнь.

CARB-OXY-THERAPY Magically Remove Scars With Carbon Dioxide


n innovative new skin treatment named “Carboxytherapy” can remove dark spots, acne scars and “spider veins” that all look so unsightly on your skin. Carbon dioxide will disintegrate the connective scar tissues under the skin, plus it improves blood and lymph circulation. Scar tissues receive more oxygen, scar size is reduced, the skin becomes softer and more even, so “Carboxytherapy” dramatically improves the appearance of scars, especially those resulting from surgery. Technically speaking, this is Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology, which has proven highly effective in improving pimple and acne scars. The procedure tightens pores, which 20

helps control excessive oil secretion; it encourages collagen and elastin production so as to reduce appearance of scars. Skin will be naturally brightened, dullness and dark spots diminished, and your skin will regain its clarity, firmness, thus bringing a younger, smoother look back to you again. Durch Anwendung einer neuen innovativen Hautbehandlung (Carboxytherapy) können dunkle Flecken, Aknenarben und „Besenreiser“, die auf Ihrer Haut so unansehnlich aussehen, entfernt werden. Kohlendioxyd löst die verbindenden Narbgewebe unter der Haut auf und verbessert zusätzlich Blut- und Lymphzirkulation.

How To Eat For A Better Shape


few simple steps in a day will get you on your way to a thinner body; - at least it worked for me, and all you need is some self discipline! When you wake up, eat breakfast. Doesn’t matter what it is, it could be eggs, cereal, an omelet, anything as long as you eat a good breakfast. Then until about the middle of the day, drink nothing but water and lots of it! Drink water as though your doctor just told you that you have to clean yourself out for surgery and you have ‘gotta’ drink lots of water! In the early afternoon, eat a big lunch, consisting of mainly a sandwich and some fresh fruits or vegetables. Doesn’t matter what the sandwich is made of, you can still eat it, and you can use dipping sauce for the ‘freshies’ too! After that, try not to sit around on a computer. Do everything you can in your power to walk around and 22

issue-13-Relax.indd 22

be active. It helps your body take in your snack lunch. When you’re hungry again, eat a healthy snack. This sounds really repetitive, but it does really work if you stick with it, find a fruit or veggie you like, and try them with sauces! In the early evening, get some exercise. It sounds scary, but it can be as simple as walking your dog, walking to the store, cleaning your house really well. The best part about walking to a 7/11 or similar is that you can get a snack or your favourite drink!

Einfache tägliche Schritte helfen Ihnen auf dem Weg ihres Wunsches, schlanker und gesünder zu werden! Selbstdisziplin, ausreichender Schlaf, ein gutes Frühstück, viel Wasser trinken und regelmäßige Fitnessübungen sind der Schüssel zum Erfolg.

At night, you should try your best to sleep, and not to take food with you.

Всего лишь немного самодисциплины и ежедневной ходьбы, все что необходимо для изящности и здоровья. Достаточный по продолжительности сон, хороший завтрак, потребление большого количества воды и несколько физических упражнений- золотое правило, которому нужно следовать.

If it’s after midnight and you can’t sleep, use a relaxation tape not only to get your body in the mood to sleep, but to relax and calm yourself, so you will slip into a deep sleep.

This time however, the aquarium dabbles with a dash of magic and mystique, at the same time integrating aquatic science and technology in the launch of its newest display.

New Fast Ferry To Hua-Hin Hua-Hin is noted for being a nice place for a holiday, especially for those with families, but the long road or train trip is definitely a big disadvantage. However, not any more, because in July the “Thai Living Ferry” company will be offering a very relaxing, high speed ferry service between Pattaya and Hua-Hin daily. The cost should be around 1,200 baht per passenger with bar & snack food available, and will only take around 3- hours each way.

Pattaya Visits Middle East To Attract New Tourists Pattaya and the TAT visited both the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) in Dubai and The Travel Expo in Kuwait, to inform prospective visitors of Thailand’s special tourism offers. These include free insurance, many special promotions and 50% entry fee reductions to a huge number of attractions involving the hospitality and entertainment industries.

Central-Festival Branch For Chonburi The huge Central Festival trading group are certainly not slowing down because of the world recession, and are constructing at least three new huge shopping complexes in Thailand this year. One of these is an ultra modern looking complex in the centre of Chonburi, and there is no doubt that when completed it will be just as successful as the recently opened Central Festival building on Pattaya Beach Road, which has attracted large numbers of shoppers. .

Mantra’s Third Successful Year The Amari Hotel Resort must be very proud of the high reputation of its “Mantra Restaurant” which can deliver top quality international food of virtually any style to a large number of diners simultaneously. They do this by having a number of specialised food kitchens and associated staff, and they once again demonstrated their culinary expertise at their recent 3rd birthday celebrations. A big following of patrons from as far away as Bangkok joined in their festivities, with the Mantra staff providing some great entertainment during the evening

Horseshoe Point Hosts Rice Harvesting

After 1-year of preparation the “Horseshoe Point Country Club and Resort” near Siam Country Club Road has created Pattaya’s only authentic rice paddy. Naturally they have staged a big “Rice Harvesting Festival, which is a big tradition throughout Thailand and sees workers return to their villages to help with the annual harvest, which is known as the ”Lorng Kaeng Geow Khao” tradition. Accordingly, a sunny Sunday morning saw the attendance of many leading dignitaries, at the original farm, just past the “Horseshoe Point Resort” in an idyllic rural setting. Honoured guests who happily participated in the rice harvest included the newly appointed Governor of Chonburi, Khun Saenee Jittakasaem, the Nai-Amphur of Banglamung District, Pattaya’s City Mayor, Khun Itthiphol Kunplome, and many other leading officials. This harvesting of rice by hand reminds Thailand’s citizens of the hard work done by the Kingdom’s rural workers, who are responsible for putting food on our tables every day of the year.

What To Eat For

Whiter Teeth H

aving a healthy, bright smile is a simple way to put your best face forward, and many everyday foods and drinks can change the colour of your teeth. You can take a preventive approach, and in addition to bleaching sessions, some everyday food choices can help you keep things white. Crunch Into Vegetables If we ever needed yet another reason to eat our veggies, “crunchy vegetables have a certain mechanical cleansing action and therefore help to remove sticky debris from your teeth,” So load up your grocery cart with carrots, celery, anise, radishes, peppers and any other crisp vegetables that you like to munch on. The Goodness Of Gum Chewing gum has two beneficial actions; - It helps to clean teeth mechanically by removing debris, and

it stimulates production of saliva, which increases your saliva’s ability to neutralize acid and remineralises enamel, thereby strengthening teeth. (“Sorbitol gum” has a therapeutic anti-bacterial action, which helps inhibit decay-causing bacteria). More Cheese Please Many of us have a love / hate relationship with cheese; - We love the taste, but hate the calories, but there is another reason to visit the cheese plate. Cheese speeds the neutralization of acid and remineralisation of enamel, and less damage to our enamel equals less discolouration. Water Will Help Water will not whiten your teeth like a bleach treatment, but it will contribute to excellent oral health. Your saliva’s ability to neutralize and remineralise depends on proper salivary gland cell function,

so drinking water helps keep your teeth healthy on a very basic level, by ensuring that cells are properly hydrated. Use A Simple Rule If you’re trying to keep your teeth as white as possible, without any additional intervention, here’s a good rule; - Darker, more acidic foods and drinks typically cause more staining, so choose the opposites to keep your smile beaming.

Ein gesundes, strahlendes Lächeln zu haben ist einfach, Ihr fröhliches Gesicht vorwärts zu bringen. Viele Ihre täglichen Nahrungsmittel und Getränke können die Zähne anfärben. Sie können zusätzlich zum Zahnarzt-Bleaching (die Sie hier sehr günstig erhalten können) weitere vorbeugende Maßnahmen treffen können. Einige tägliche Nahrungsmittel können Ihnen helfen Ihre Zähne strahlend weiß zu halten. Наличие здоровой, яркой улыбки- это простой способ показать свое лицо в лучшем виде. Многие из повседневных продуктов питания и напитков могут изменить цвет ваших зубов. В качестве профилактики, дополнительно к процедуре отбеливания, некоторые повседневные продукты питания помогут вам сохранить зубы белыми. ‫ﺍﻟﺤﺼﻮﻝ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺃﺳﻨﺎﻥ ﺑﻴﻀﺎء ﺻﺤﻴﺔ ﺳﻬﻞ‬ ‫ ﻛﺜﻴﺮ ﻣﻦ ﺍﻷﻏﺬﻳﺔ‬.‫ﺟﺪﺍ ﻹﻋﻄﺎﺋﻚ ﻭﺟﻬﺎ ﻣﺸﺮﻗﺎ‬ .‫ﻭﺍﻟﻤﺸﺮﻭﺑﺎﺕ ﺍﻟﻴﻮﻣﻴﺔ ﺗﺴﺒﺐ ﻓﻲ ﺗﻠﻮﻳﻦ ﺍﻷﺳﻨﺎﻥ‬ ‫ﺑﺎﻹﺿﺎﻓﺔ ﺍﻟﻰ ﺗﺒﻴﺾ ﺍﻷﺳﻨﺎﻥ ﻋﻨﺪ ﺍﻟﻄﺒﻴﺐ )ﺍﻟﺘﻲ‬ ،(‫ﻳﻤﻜﻨﻚ ﺍﻟﺤﺼﻮﻝ ﻋﻠﻴﻬﺎ ﻫﻨﺎ ﺑﺄﺳﻌﺎﺭ ﻣﻨﺎﺳﺒﺔ ﺟﺪﺍ‬ ‫ﻳﻤﻜﻨﻚ ﺗﻨﺎﻭﻝ ﺑﻌﺾ ﺍﻷﻃﻌﻤﺔ ﺍﻟﺘﻲ ﺗﺴﺎﻋﺪﻙ ﻓﻲ‬ ‫ﺍﻟﺤﺼﻮﻝ ﻋﻠﻰ ﺍﻹﺑﺘﺴﺎﻣﺔ ﺍﻟﺴﺎﻃﻌﺔ‬.

Give Your Eyes A Break


ith the summer season your eyes are under a lot of strain, so here are a few things you can do to have good vision. Not just eating carrots, but anything with vitamin-A helps to safeguard against cataracts and macular degeneration and gives you better night vision. If you spend hours at a computer or television, taking a break will definitely help; - spend no more than one hour without a break. When you‘re eyes are hurting or bloodshot, you might need more sleep, and if you stare at a screen for a long time, you should look away every ten minutes. If you are using “Windows,” try enabling “ClearType” font smoothing; (this will help make reading much easier and put less strain on your 34

issue-13-Relax.indd 34

eyes). “Blackle” viewing a dark screen is better than a bright, white screen, so if you use Google to search, try using “Blackle” instead. Good table lamps are better than overhead lights, and avoid working in rooms that are dark or too dim. If you already wear prescription contacts, using reading glasses can help reduce eye strain. You will be able to see small text more clearly, and be able to sit further away from your monitor, because reading glasses magnify. “RELAX” recommends eye exercises; - close your eyes tightly for 5-seconds and then open them. Repeat 5-6 times, and this will temporarily relieve strain and pressure. Lightly pressing a warm washcloth to your eyes once in a while is also a good idea.

dusitD2 and d’spa: Where urban chic meets coastal bliss

The RELAX team was invited to visit the recently opened dusitD2 Baraquda Pattaya hotel and d’spa in central Pattaya. DusitD2 is a second generation Dusit managed hotel; it’s a vibrant, fun, boutique hotel with many novel features. Inspired by Sea, Sun, and Sanuk (Fun), the hotel has a nautical theme throughout. We were met in the Reception Bar by the friendly Khun Tasara Taksinapan (Cat), public relations and event whiz, who guided us around 36

issue-13-Relax.indd 36

and answered our questions. dusitD2 opened early in 2009, with just 72 rooms, and full five star facilities including a residents’ lounge, d’gym, free wifi, d’spa, two bars and the SEA restaurant. Khun Cat showed us the three grades of room, all of which were very inviting. Starting from the 60 de-luxe rooms (37m2) through the 8 Studio suites (75m2, two rooms, 1½ bathrooms) to the 4 Loft Suites (81m2, two rooms and 1½ bathrooms on

two floors). All the rooms have their king size beds in the centre of the rooms, and the Studio and Loft Suites have Jacuzzis in the bedroom. One bar in on the top floor of the hotel, and looking like the prow of a ship, is a great spot to watch the sun set over the sea. The other (Baraquda) deep bar also has a nautical theme, but this time under the

back to reality by a quick spritz of rose water on our faces!

Then we were greeted by the dynamic d’spa manager Khun Charin Sangsuwan, who showed us the five treatment rooms (doubles with double showers), all lit by natural light from large windows looking out onto peaceful gardens. The treatments are inspired by the sea, using natural marine products including sea-plants. The detailed menu explained the body treatments, facials and water treatments. Menus are changed to suit the seasons. Anyone is welcome as a guest, whether a hotel resident or not.

Horse Riding For A Better Mental And Social Skills


iding not only has physical benefits: it can provide a boost to your mental health. Regular exercise combined with the team work required between man and horse helps to build a stronger character. However, the environment of the horse can provide more than just riding skills. The equine environment can teach companionship, responsibility, leadership, vocational, educational skills as well as offer competition venues in the different horse disciplines. Riding a horse provides a unique experince. The students who interact with their horses may extend this to others and to form meaningful relationships with people. Building a relationship with an animal is very rewarding in many respects; for a person with an emotional, social or psychological disability, the trust and loyalty of an animal demonstrates to the student how important they are and then they may extend these attributes to personal 40

issue-13-Relax.indd 40

relationships. Horses also help people feel in control of their situation because there is a direct correlation between action and reaction. To learn how to care for and ride a horse, a student must also be able to communicate efficiently with the horse and the instructor. In this way, riding is a very social activity, but is less daunting to people who are uncomfortable in social situations. However, the experience of riding a horse is very different. Riding helps to empower people and enables them to connect on a personal level. The sometimes-unpredictable nature of animals and situations also creates a real-life environment in which students will be able to confront fears and make adjustments to situations beyond their control. That’s why personality improvement is a very important fact of working with horses. And for that it’s not necessary to ride a horse. Learning to communicate with horses is also a good method for non-rider. First

is to understand your own character, the horses are like a mirror and show directly the strength but also the weakness of persons, which can finally be changed by this personality training. The horse becomes a psychologist. This method is available for all people who would like to develop their personalities, from one who would like to work in a group to someone, who wants to be a leader, or a manager in an important position. A rider needs tight trousers or special riding breeches with leathers patches and riding boots with low heels. A safety riding hat is essential. Rider in western saddles can wear jeans and chaps. A safety hat is still necessary. If you are interested in more details please contact Dr. Kiki Reisinger,, 0819884127

Enjoy Nong Nooch Gardens


Farm Turns To Top Tourist Attraction

ack in 1974 (35 years ago) Bangkok businessman Mr. Pisit and his wife Nong Nooch, purchased 600 acres of land at Na-Jomtien, not too far from the present day “Golden Buddha” and the nearby temple. While this land was an investment in their future, Mr. Pisit single handedly started to develop a garden that could be used in movie sets. Being a frequent overseas traveler, he hit upon the idea of having different sections for plants & flowers from different countries, and later added a few fruit trees as well. Somewhere along the way, around 29-years ago, their garden project exploded into a huge tourist attraction by popular demand, and it grew beyond their wildest dreams. Today it consists of 25-separate immaculately maintained, international gardens of gigantic proportions, with the Pisit’s favourite being the French styled garden area. Of course being Thailand, 42

elephants and the orchid house. With a big majority of visitors coming from India, Russia and Korea, he added that for 20-years “Nong Nooch Gardens” have offered bungalows (from 1,100 baht daily), and the eighty new “Rimsuwan” apartments built over water are proving very popular. The opening of their new hotel, includes complimentary facilities such as swimming pool, club, the existing conference centre, and not forgetting their International, Thai, Chinese and new seafood restaurants. elephants were added for the benefit of tourists, and these gentle giants are highly trained to perform a wide variety of tricks for the benefit of visitors. We asked the Sales & Marketing Division Manager, Khun Chiraparit Sodorn, (with his 20-years experience), to name the most popular attractions, and these were the

Relax & Enjoy Yourself At


hen we went along to the southern end of Jomtien Beach to visit the Rimini Restaurant, we did not just take our assessment team, we actually took our entire staff, because they were very keen to try the Rimini pizzas. No wonder, because they are baked in a natural wood fired pizza oven and the Rimini has all types from vegetarian through to delicious seafood and a wide range of meat toppings. As soon as we arrived, the staff’s friendly manner immediately put us all at ease, because we were treated like part of the family and given a long table where we could watch the beautiful sunset over the Gulf of Thailand. However, it is not just the delicious crispy pizzas that sets the Rimini


issue-13-Relax.indd 44

apart, but also the wide range of Italian and Thai food plus the extensive wine list. The spacious layout of the interior and terrace allows everyone complete freedom of movement, so that you can even watch your own pizza being prepared and then baked near the tables. Our host Giovanni hails from Italy, but is a master Chef with many years of international experience and we could see that he had an intimate knowledge of the restaurant business. He brought out a huge basket of fish, just to prove to us that he insists that suppliers give him basic food items that are absolutely fresh. This is of paramount importance if you want to deliver the tastiest dishes to your custom-

ers, but there are other features that set this restaurant ahead of others. When we saw one of the customer’s small girls sitting on the knees of the cashier while she was working, we realised that here was a true family style restaurant, which is dedicated to making everybody’s dining experience as pleasant as possible.

Café Chilli

(Isaan for very delicious)

Authentic Northeastern Dishes In Central Pattaya


arly 2009 Café Chilli opened its second branch on the second floor of Central Festival Shopping Mall, Pattaya Beach.

Inside, the walls have numerous dark wooden drawers, like a Chinese pharmacy, and the front window uses an abacus theme. The Relax team visited recently for lunch and we were warmly greeted by Khun Areeporn (Wan) the restaurant manager. She brought us menus, and told us a little of the history of Café Chilli. A group of girl-friends, led by Khun Nawarat Sippapak wanted to raise the image of Northeastern cuisine from the misconception that it is only street food. The girls knew that the food is a work of art with many contrasting flavours, and made correctly includes herbs and vegetables to provide healthy, non fattening food. The food includes chilli which is loaded with antioxidants, garlic to lower blood pressure, phakwan to fight cancer and fresh ingredients with many other essential nutrients. On the tables there were colourful vegetable arrangements instead of the usual flowers. We looked through the menu which has a range of Isaan, Thai and Western dishes, and we noticed a choice of twenty differ-

ent styles of Somtam! We tasted the somtam (papaya salad) with scallops, very tasty, and all prepared with fresh vegetables and herbs. Then we tried a different somtam served with black and white sticky rice. Somtam is a social food, and it is clearly more fun to share it with friends. It is certainly popular with tourists. For a main course we enjoyed a sea bass, served with apple and mango freshly prepared dipping sauces. These were delicious and complimented the fish, and we left only bones on the plate when we had finished! 46

issue-13-Relax.indd 46

10/6/2552 21:42:14

Café Chilli offers you a chance to try genuine Northeastern style food, without the worries some tourists have about eating street food. If you think that Isaan food might be too spicy, ask the staff to make yours a little milder. Many customers at Café Chilli are non-Thais, and the chefs are used to adapting recipes to foreign palates. There is seating for forty inside and the same outside on the shaded sea-facing terrace. Café Chilli is open every day from 10.00am to 11.00pm. Reservation recommended at weekends or holidays. Tel.: 038 043 198 Mit Isaan-, thailändischen und westlichen Speisen, einschließlich zwanzig verschiedenen Somtam (Papaya Salat) Gerichten, bietet Café Chilli Ihnen die einzigartige Möglichkeit, authentische nordöstliche Speisen in höchster Qualität zu geniessen, was einige Touristen beim Essen in Straßenrestaurants nicht bedenkenlos können. Wir haben täglich geöffnet, bequem auf der zweiten Etage im Central Festival, Pattaya Beach.

Four Famous Food Outlets T

he new Central Festival shopping mall on Pattaya Beach Road is the biggest beachfront shopping complex in S.E. Asia, and as such has attracted many of the biggest brand name businesses in our part of the world. A case in point is the excellent range of restaurants on its 5th floor, and we take just four as an example of what to expect. “Pepper Lunch” is a highly successful thirteen year old Japanese Restaurant chain with over 200-outlets spread over Japan, plus others in Korea, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore & Indonesia. “Pepper Lunch” is completely different to other restaurants, because you can cook your own steak in a skillet, while enjoying the cozy atmosphere, with the slogan of “Sizzle it your way.” “Shimofuri pepper steak” and “Salmon pepper rice”

are two favourite dishes, with special offers such as their “Curry beef pepper rice with a large Pepsi” for 169 baht being excellent value, plus they have some interesting ice creams, such as green tea & black sesame flavours.

“Hawa (Our) Russia” is a traditional Russian restaurant with some excellent Eastern European dishes that will gladden the hearts of all westerners. For just 249 baht you can choose either a minestrone style or vegetable soup with meat balls, followed by a choice of beef goulash or a large serving of meat balls complete with mashed potatoes. Added to this is a “fruit-mors” drink that is available in a variety of tasty fruit flavours, and I am sure that the addition of some good Russian Vodka from their bar would help your enjoyable restaurant visit along no end. “Mos Burger” are another Japanese based fine burger & coffee house, with an excellent slogan of “Make people happy through food,” with a large number of outlets in Bangkok. Burgers with meat, seafood, cheese or salad are their specialty, with prices being cleverly


issue-13-Relax.indd 48

10/6/2552 21:42:25

grouped, depending on the base of the contents. One tasty new concept are lettuce burgers, which are served in lettuce instead of the usual bread roll, so if you prefer a lighter more healthy meal, this is the perfect answer for people on the move. Salads, soups and side dishes are available, and a Teriyaki chicken burger with French fries and a large soft drink is good value at 119 baht. “Secret Recipe” is unique for being a dedicated cake & dessert shop, and also because this Malaysian based company has spread to Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand,

issue-13-Relax.indd 49

China & the Philippines. Already with fifteen stands in Bangkok “Secret Recipe” produce every type of delicious cake imaginable, which is no great surprise as they are Malaysia’s largest café chain. Winning the most competitive company award, has seen them introduce “health cakes;”(yes, you heard it right). This new range includes high fibre cheese cake, carrot slice with walnuts & raisins, sugar free chocolate cake, plus trans-fat free peach or blueberry cream cake; still sounds pretty yummy. You have probably now realized that the new Central Festival shopping mall on Pattaya Beach Road is not just another mega shopping complex in S.E. Asia, but has attracted many of the best fast food restaurants in the S.E. Asian food business. Of course these four food outlets are just part of a huge selection of

what to expect, so take your family and friends for a 5th Floor visit; you will not be disappointed. Das neue Central Festival Einkaufszentrum direkt an der Strand-Straße (Beach Road) in Pattaya hat um die vierzig ausgezeichnete internationale Speiselokale im 5. Stock. Hier ist ein gutes Beispiel fuer hochwertige Speisen, die Sie aus der Gastronomiebranche erwarten können.

Pattaya City and Chonburi Province represented by Pattaya’s Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome, TAT Pattaya Assistant Director Khun Patchalin Swettarat, and a number of Pattaya’s quality hospitality business representatives, traveled to the at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) in Dubai. In addition Dr. Salam Hoshang of MCS International Network Co. Ltd. and RELAX Magazine joined the TAT in the Middle East at the World Travel Expo in Kuwait, to present Pattaya and Chonburi to the world. These two exhibitions are the most significant tourism events in the Middle East. As is well known, the traveler’s high season in the Middle East normally starts from June until September of every year, so this is a great market to balance and increase the number of tourists coming to Pattaya during the green season. The analysis from these exhibitions shows that the numbers of quality tourists are made up of honeymooners or affluent families, plus medical, beauty and wellness travelers. These quality visitors are estimated to spend about 5 - 10 times as much as an 58

average budget tourist. Creating special strategies and activities to attract such quality tourists will increase the number of visitors during the green season and considerably raise the total revenue. His Excellency Mr. Chumpol Silapa-Archa the Minister of Tourism and Sport give a very

interesting speech during the “Amazing Thailand Night Reception” at the Dusit-Thani Dubai organized by the Thailand Tourism Authority (TAT). The speech informed the invited hospitality experts of the Thai government’s several new tourism stimulus packages plus incentive schemes. These include

measures to insure the security and comfort of tourists and other visitors, such as insurance for each visitor being paid by the Thai government, as well as the reduction of the landing fees for airliners. Many special promotions and price reductions include offers such as 50% entry fee reductions to a huge number of attractions involving the hospitality and entertainment industries. The political instability in Thailand was a major concern for many tourists, more so than the economic crisis, but the participating team managed to ease these worries, and there will be further strategies to motivate the tourists and visitors alike. The Middle East markets, which showed the greatest interest in both Thailand and Pattaya included, Kuwait, UAE,

Qatar, Oman, Syria, Egypt and Iran. This is a very big market to draw from, with highly desirable tourists of sound financial means. The Middle East can play a vital role in Thailand’s tourism recovery.
