Transformers 3 features Sam Witwicky taking his first tenuous steps into adulthood while remaining a reluctant human ally of Optimus Prime. The film centres around the space race between the U.S.S.R. and the USA, suggesting there was a hidden Transformers role in it all that remains one of the planet's most dangerous secrets. The villain of the third film will be Shockwave.

Shortly after, unusual disappearances and inexplicable events begin to take place in town, and the local Deputy tries to uncover the truth something more terrifying than any of them could have imagined.

Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants to stop threats to the world. In the process, a rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-MEN.

BEST REGATTA IN ASIA – IT'S OFFICIAL! Six Senses Phuket Raceweek, now in its eighth year, was recently voted ‘Best Asian Regatta of the Year’ in the Asia Boating Awards 2011, which recognise the cream of Asia’s marine industry across 23 categories, from boat builders to marinas to regattas. The awards ceremony was held at the Gold Coast Yacht & Country Club in Hong Kong on May 6. Phuket Raceweek is only the second regatta in Thailand to win this prestigious award. “We’re delighted with the accolade, which reflects what our participants have been telling us for the past several years,” said Grenville Fordham, MD of regatta rights owners Image Asia.

A FIRST FOR ASIA!

IF IT AIN'T BROKE... “One of the challenges facing regatta organisers is how to innovate, what to change after seven years of working at ‘getting it right’,” said Grenville Fordham, MD of rights owner and organiser Image Asia. The racing is professionally run by experienced and popular Race Officer, Simon James and his team. The regatta venue at Evason is second to none. The party food is, without question, the best at any Asian regatta. A crew ticket comes with a full free-flow bar and sumptuous buffet every night. As the saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” In the value-for-money context, the Phuket Raceweek ‘skippers bag’ is turning into a ‘goodie bag’ to top them all, with three quality bags stuffed with original Nautica shirts and Gybe caps for every crew member, as well as Rodenstock sports sunglasses and top-of-the-range Nivea suncare products. And, to liven up the onshore activities, there’s a cooking competition. Cosponsor Franke (Swiss manufacturer of high end kitchen equipment) celebrates 100 years in business this year – and is marking that achievement by joining forces with Six Senses Phuket Raceweek. Not such a strange partnership, as Franke is an Official Supplier to the Alinghi Americas Cup team!

Mount Gay Rum, famed for its worldwide regatta sponsorship (120 regattas sponsored by Mount Gay each year), has never before sponsored a regatta in Asia.

As part of its Phuket Raceweek activities, Franke is organising a competition for cooks and chefs who work on the water. Judged by a Thai celebrity chef, and with prizes worth around 100,000 Baht, dazzling dishes will be prepared – on Franke equipment of course – at Evason’s Into the Beach regatta venue.

Six Senses Phuket Raceweek is honoured to have been selected by Mount Gay Rum as, not only their first Asian Regatta, but the chosen event for the launch of Mount Gay in Thailand.

Six Senses Phuket Raceweek 2011 will be held from 20-24 July 2011 at the Evason Phuket & Bon Island on Phuket’s Southeast coast. For more information visit www.phuketraceweek.com or email raceweek@image-asia.com

Recipe

Snow Fish Fillet, Sorrento style Served with olive oil, seared zucchini and tomato fondue Snow Fish

Tomato fondue

• 4 fillets of around 150 gm

• 40 ml dry white wine

• 4 heirloom tomatoes, well ripened, medium size

• Bread flour

• Salt and pepper to your liking

• 20 gm extra virgin olive oil

• 25 ml extra virgin olive oil

• 250 gm Italian buffalo mozzarella

• 30 gm Italian basil leaves • Salt and pepper to your liking

Skin and pat dry the fillets, drench them in flour. Heat the oil in a non sticky pan, place the fillets and fry them gently until medium done. Add salt and pepper to your taste, pour the wine and cover. Complete the cooking at slow fire, adding a little water if needed. Keep the remaining sauce warm. Place the fillets in a baking tray. Place one thick slice of Mozzarella on top and bake at 180º C until the cheese gets well soft. Zucchini

With a small sharp knife, remove the stem from the tomatoes and mark the skin at the top with an “X”. Plunge the tomatoes in boiling water for about 30 seconds. The skin is now very easy to remove, under running water. Dice the peeled tomatoes to 4 mm cubes. In a non sticky fry pan, heat the oil. Pour the tomatoes in and stir until smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to your taste and the basil leaves finely chopped.

• 300 gm Fresh zucchini

• 4 Gloves of garlic, peeled

Serving

• 25 ml Extra virgin olive oil

• Salt and pepper to your liking

On each large main course plate, place ¼ of the zucchini, well drained from the oil, in the middle. Place on top one snow fish fillet, topped with a little of the white wine sauce. Complete the plate with ¼ of tomato fondue. Decorate with fresh Italian basil leaves and serve. A glass of fresh Soave white wine would be a perfect match.

Heat the oil and garlic in a fry pan. Fry the garlic until golden brown, and then remove it. Put the zucchini, sliced to 2 mm thickness, add salt and pepper to your taste and fry until well done.

Start with the bruschetta, with delicately skinned tomatoes and fresh herbs and beef carpaccio with olive oil. The food is prepared under the careful eye of the Sardinian executive chef and owner, Salvatore Cossu, a fixture on Phuket’s restaurant scene for his cooking skills.

Baluchi is located in the heart of Patong and in Karon yet the relaxed atmosphere of both restaurants with soft background Indian music, creates a great ambience to relish a hearty meal with your family or to entertain your friends or clients. They take pride in using only authentic and fresh Indian spices, freshly ground in their kitchen and fresh, not frozen, meat. Homemade paneer (cottage cheese) and yoghurt, tandoori kebabs, naan and rotis, Mughlai curries and the best Indian long grain basmati rice dishes are just some of the specialties which their Indian master chef serves daily. One can taste the most mouth-watering tandoori kebabs in town, not to mention the variety of breads baked freshly in the tandoor or a delicious variety of prawn, chicken, mutton or vegetable biryani.

Around Phuket Patong Seafood

International

Thai

Take a journey into the home of real Thai food! Patong Seafood Restaurant was the first seafood restaurant to open in the then village-like Patong. It has changed very little from those days except for a major refurbishment after the 2004 tsunami in which major damage was sustained.

Kantok Restaurant offers you a natural and warm ambiance where traditional healthy food is matched with fun and exciting traditional dance. “The Kantok” table was originally used by the northern households welcoming guests of importance into their homes.

The restaurant was rebuilt as it was in original Thai style with open dining area and a high circular design ceiling. Only the freshest seafood is brought straight from the boat and market to give you the finest selections, which are on display – chilled and ready to eat. The kitchens at Patong Seafood Restaurant are a place to behold, where their chefs with simply so many years of experience, prepare your seafood and other Thai delicacies to perfection.

Our Thai set menu is attentively prepared, beginning with our Thai appetizer platter which includes items which continue to be a rare delicacy these days due to the delicate mix of ingredients to create an old and unique taste. A sampling of our main event including green curry with chicken, Mussaman curry and our famed red duck curry is something not to be missed. End your distinct culinary experience with a local Thai dessert.

The first thing that you will notice are the friendly staff. The smiles, the attentiveness and the helpfulness in making your choice are something you will appreciate and you will then know why many visitors and locals come back time and time again to enjoy this real taste of Thailand.

Enjoy our Thai classical dance show which runs everyday from 7 to 9pm and is accompanied by a Thai traditional orchestra. If you haven’t tried the best red duck curry in town or yet seen a Thai classical dance, it is well worth the effort of doing so. It is beautifully relaxing and an almost hypnotic way to enjoy the evening.

People Profile

Susanne (Sue) Ultmann Sue Ultmann, loves her job as Executive Assistant Manager and Director, Marketing Communications at Kalim Beach’s iconic Baan Rim Pa Group and she is also passionate about her favourite charity, Phuket Has Been Good to Us Foundation.

Where are you from originally? Melbourne, Australian born, six generations. I have a small family, my brother, Rob lives in Mackay, my son, John, works with the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne, my 85-year-old father, Noel lives in Phuket and my husband Tom who is here in Phuket too. What was your work background before you came to Phuket? I worked in advertising in television, radio and the print media, mainly linked to the hospitality and travel industries. I was associate publisher of Travel Week at the time it became Australia’s No 1. Travel Industry newspaper. It was owned by Peter Isaacson, one of Australia’s media icons. Because of the opportunities he gave me to travel, which few women were given in those days, I'm living in Asia today. He was my mentor. He turned 90 last year and I attended his party. Did you travel much before you finally came to Phuket? For many years I travelled, mainly around the South Pacific and Asia, selling advertising for Travel Week Australia. Then I met my second husband, Tom Ultmann who was a hotel GM in Australia. He wanted to work in Asia and I said I'd go anywhere, but with two stipulations: firstly, that there was an airport and, secondly, that I was not shot at. So when did you arrive on Phuket? Tom opened a hotel Koh Samui in 1992, and I continued working for Travel Week Australia. Then we worked in Malaysia, Philippines and came to Phuket in 1998 for three months. We established Phuket as a base, Tom returned to Manila in 2000 to do a second contract and I worked in Bangkok launching The BigChilli magazine, but we kept a house in Phuket. When did you join Baan Rim Pa Group (BRP) In 2001, Bruce Stanley, a freelance writer, introduced me to Tom McNamara, the late founder of the group. He needed someone to sort out his advertising. I was initially not interested as I didn't think Tom and I would get on. Eventually I agreed to a maximum of three months. We did have our ups and downs. But the job grew and I stayed. It’s now 10 years. What changes in the business have you seen in the last 10 years? There’s always a change in the type of tourists, but business doesn't change much. BRP started 21 years ago so it was already an icon when I joined. Our main business comes from tourists, groups and weddings. The other two restaurants in the group are Da Maurizio (started 17 years ago) and Joe's Downstairs (six years ago). They're wonderful restaurants and I'm proud to be a part of them. Where do you live and why did you choose to live there? We've always lived in the Rawai / Nai Harn area and bought a villa there seven years ago. It’s our favourite part of the island. What sort of car do you drive? A white Honda CRV. I love it. It's my baby. What do you like most about living on Phuket? Most things! Weather, food, the lifestyle and the multi-cultural society. I enjoy staying fit and go to the gym regularly; four years ago I started running and

will run again in Laguna’s ¼ Marathon in June. Not that I'm a good runner – I’m not, I just do it for fun. What are the most frustrating things about living on Phuket? The traffic, people complaining in general but specifically about immigration. I've never had a problem with them, in fact quite the opposite. If you treat them with respect you get it back. What do you think the future holds for you? At this stage we're not thinking of moving anywhere, although I can't predict the future. How would you evaluate success? Being successful in life is more important than work. I've always enjoyed working and am fortunate enough to say I've always had jobs that I liked, so I guess that's successful. I have a wonderful husband, a small but close family, good friends and a really good life on Phuket. What do you do with your free time? I enjoy walking on Nai Harn Beach in the morning with my husband and our Doberman “Shatzi”, working with my personal trainer, dining out or just staying at home. We lead a pretty casual life. Are you involved in any local charities, clubs or associations? Phuket Has Been Good to Us Foundation is a passion of mine. Started by my late boss Tom McNamara after the tsunami, it teaches quality English language to more than 700 under privileged Thai children in the Kalim and Kamala Kings schools. The aim is to give these children better opportunities in the future. We also run an after-school and weekend programme called “Coconut Club” for 150 of these children who live permanently at the Kamala school. They enjoy activities such as swimming, surfing, arts and crafts, special outings and we also have birthday parties for all these children on a monthly basis. The foundation is totally run by fundraising.

The Sukko staff are dressed beautifully in traditional Thai style and the spa design, influenced by the ancient Siamese capital, creates a haven of calm yet regal serenity. I felt I had left all my troubles behind. Chilled out by the soothing background music, my mind was filled with a peaceful wellbeing as I enjoyed the warm traditional welcome (again from Sukko culture) of the ‘Flower Floating Ritual’ – similar to ‘Loy Kratong’, where the idea is to float away past stresses and wish for luck and joy from that moment on.

I was pampered with the ‘All-Soother’ package, a 2 1/2 hour experience that left me feeling relaxed and refreshed. This four-treatment combination began with 30 minutes in the steam room and the Jacuzzi, followed by a Thai Turmeric Body Scrub designed to soften your skin and awaken your senses. The scrub was followed by a traditional Thai massage, the pressure applied gently but firmly. "Is this pressure okay? Too strong? How are you feeling?" my therapist asked me from time to time. “Mmm… perfect…” were the only responses that seemed to suit how I felt. My last step, which came all too soon, was the Thai Herb Purifying Facial Treatment, using creams and herbs that left my face feeling smooth and glowing – and even looked good enough to eat! Sukko Spa’s restaurant, Suk Savoey Spa Cuisine, presents a unique concept: "Menu by Blood Types" and "Menu by Element". For those who want to exercise, the Suk Sanan Club provides a myriad of fitness opportunities, including ‘Rue Sri Dat Ton’ (the hermit self stretching), a traditional Thai exercise or, for something more strenuous, try ‘Muay Thai Chaiya’, a traditional and effective art of selfdefense. Parents who come to Sukko to relax can leave their kids at Suk Zon Kid's Club, where they will enjoy with a variety of fun yet safe activities. Sukko Spa, one of Phuket’s most luxurious spas, is located on Chaofa Road just 30 minutes from Phuket International Airport, 10 minutes from Phuket Town, 30 minutes from Kata or Karon Beach and 20 minutes from Patong Beach.

Spa

Lemongrass House To visit this home of award-winning spa oils, creams, soaps and so many other exquisite products is a delight. The aromas are enchanting. At Lemongrass, you can enjoy a spa treatment to sample and choose from their huge range, then take home your choice to enjoy at your leisure. They even have a great range of kid’s spa products.

Bobby Duchowny studied aromatherapy – a healing art that promotes massage, when combined with specific herb and spice oils, as a method to reduce stress, boost energy and heal certain physical ailments – at the American Aromatherapy Association. Some years ago while on holiday in Thailand, he visited an organic farm in Petchaboon province and became interested in the natural healing properties of Thai herbs and spices. “I was particularly attracted to lemon grass as it was used in many popular Thai foods, as a medicine for stomach disorders and even as a repellent for mosquitoes,” he recalls. Bobby used lemon grass as his signature herb to create a line of essential oils, face and body creams, shower gels and bath crystals, which he and his wife Palita sold at Bangkok’s world-famous Weekend Market. What started, several years ago, as a modest enterprise has blossomed into a successful operation offering over 90 oils and a wide range of body care products through many outlets, as well as supplying many of Thailand’s top resorts and spas with aromatherapy oils.

“Our advantage is that we produce the freshest spa products and our stock is never kept longer than three months; using fresh spa products can be likened to eating fresh food rather than processed food.” Based on his years of experiences at some of the top spas in Southeast Asia, Bobby has developed a full line of healthy skin care products. For example, his hydrating face and body creams have 25 per cent aloe vera, white orchid and cucumber extracts. And he’s developed a revitalizing mineral muscle soak made from Andaman Sea salt crystals, blended with white orchid and chamomile extracts, to help draw out impurities and soothe and revive tense muscles. “People are sensitive to different scents at different times of day. It’s a good idea to get a variety of essential oils and experiment with what smells and feels good to you,” he says. “Our aromatherapy massage and body oils can be either uplifting or calming to the spirit. They’re carefully balanced handblended oils created by adding pure essential oils to nourishing, vitamin E enriched, sweet almond and jojoba base oils. Lemongrass has won many awards, including Condé Nast Hot List 2007, and has been featured in several top magazines, including Time Magazine’s “Best of Asia”. According to Time, “If you want to smell like no one else, try mixing a selection from the more than 90 natural scents at Lemongrass House.” Lemongrass House is located in Cherngtalay, Surin Beach and Chalong, where you can buy their full range of spa products at modest prices, making perfect gifts for friends and family who can enjoy the aromatic scents of Asia in the privacy of their homes – no matter where in the world they live.

The Royal Spa To experience The Royal Spa is to feel the true beauty of nature and reflect on the power of body, mind and spiritual connections.

The Royal Spa and Health Club

Some treatments & packages at The Royal Spa

In the heart of bustling Phuket Town lies a quiet haven of heavenly peace. With the continuous sounds of water, trickling, bubbling and steaming, and with the sweet fruity scents that fill the air, the being is enticed into a flowing stillness of body and mind. The Royal Spa and Health Club is a popular tropical day spa with both locals and visitors alike, which is managed by the Royal Spa Development and Management Company. With an excellent reputation in the spa development industry through its experience and attention to detail, the Royal Spa and Health Club offers a distinctly personal experience. Of the signature treatments, the Royal Stone Therapy is one that is particularly interesting. The Hot Stone massage technique, founded 5000 years ago, uses black volcanic stones, which are heated and placed on the body, producing a profound effect, stilling the mind and easing the body. Unlike many of the high-end spa complexes on the island, which market themselves exclusively to tourists, the reasonable prices and relaxed but professional staff at the Royal Spa, means that many local Thais, as well as tourists, are beginning to use the spa. This has helped to erase the often stiff, and over-formal atmosphere at many of Phuket’s spa resorts, giving the Royal Spa an ambience of authentic relaxation and pleasure. All the therapists working at the Royal Spa have been trained at the in-house 'Phuket Spa Academy', established in 2004, to provide a comprehensive spa training course. The curriculum and assessments provide a measurement of therapist expertise and knowledge within the Thai spa industry. Since then, the Royal Spa Development and Management Company have provided comprehensive and professional spa management, and development programs, for spa retreats throughout Thailand. Their aim is to provide a standard of service and expertise throughout the Thai spa industry, to ensure a high quality of service and standard of treatment, throughout Thailand. It truly offers the ‘one stop services for Thai spa business’ and a quality of relaxed professionalism, rarely found in luxury spa resorts. Right now The Royal Spa have 12 branches that are managed in resorts in Patong, Kata, Karon, Panwa, Ao Chalong and Phuket Town and you are welcome to experience our spas with us anytime. As a special for our 8th year anniversary, we offer 'BUY ONE GET ONE FREE' value.

PROTECTING YOUR BRAND IN THAILAND

Many foreign investors doing business in Thailand do not consider, or may not seek or are not advised on the benefits of registering a Trademark in Thailand with regards to protecting their brand. This is notwithstanding the ever increasing emphasis in the modern world on the importance and value of brands, and the fact that each day a business should be through its actions be improving its brand value. The publication in which this article appears is also dominated by brands. Protection for a Trademark is provided under the Trademark Act. In Thailand Trademark law protects all the commonly protected marks, symbols and labels used for a product or a service and in addition covers three dimensional objects, groups of colors and combinations of these images. It should be noted that in Thailand the categories under the trademark law are different to other jurisdictions, providing protection for 4 categories of Trademarks as follows: • Trademark is a mark that is used in conjunction with goods to present that such goods are different from other goods; • Service Mark is a mark that is used in conjunction with a service to present that such service is different from other services; • Certification Mark is a mark that the owner of a product or service uses in conjunction with the product or the service to ensure quality of the product or the service; and • Collective Mark is a trademark or service mark used by a company or other associates ventures or members of an association or other organizations of public and private entities. The procedure of registering Trademark applications is divided into 4 periods as follows; 1. Investigation and examination of the similarity and availability of trademark; 2. Submission of trademark application for the consideration of the registrar; 3. Notification of status and result of the application; and 4. Registration of the trademark. If you understand this simple process, then you will understand the process your appointed attorneys or advisers will need to undertake to assist you with protecting your brand. It is not sufficient to ask your advisers to go ahead and register protection, but in addition you should consult with them about the marks you intend to register to ensure they are unique and will not be declined by the Registrar as unsuitable.

power of attorney (Gor. 19), as well as a copy of the proxy’s and/or agent’s certified copy of identification card must be submitted. 3. Notification of status and result of the application After the application is submitted, the registrar and the officer shall conduct an investigation related to the qualifications of trademark applying for the registration. At this stage, if there is any issue or opposition from any third parties, the registrar will send the applicant with an official notice informing details of such issue or opposition and provide the applicant with a time period to appeal and/or submit further documentations. If the application is completed and no opposition is filed against the application to the registrar, the registrar shall approve the registration of the trademark and issue the certificate for the applicant. 4. Registration of the trademark The applicant or his proxy must bring together with his presence at the Department of Intellectual Property, the written notice received from the registrar in order to proceed with the registration of trademark. Understanding the protection under law A nuance of the law relating to infringement of these marks is that from the date of application the marks are deemed protected under law and you can enforce against third parties for infringement. The ‘catch’ is that the enforcement is only possible post-registration which makes the protection ‘retrospective’ in effect. Therefore, if third parties infringe your marks during registration, you can warn such parties off from infringement, but the real enforcement is delayed until the marks are properly registered. There are laws of course which also protect unregistered marks, and the laws relating to ‘passing off ’ can also be relevant. CONCLUSION In the last twenty years, and as of 2011, the matter of brands has become an integral part of everybody’s lives, as the new generations make their commercial choices typically around branded products. Businesspeople creating new business or working in existing businesses should not overlook the importance of legally addressing protection of brands through trademark protection as described above. Any person or company intending to use the procedures above should seek formal retained advice prior to proceeding. The Authors of this article are Sebastian Künz, Senior Associate at Limcharoen Hughes & Glanville (Phuket) sebastian@limcharoen.com and Khun Pongsak, Associate at Limcharoen Hughes & Glanville (Phuket) pongsak@limcharoen.com

1. Investigation of Trademark It is recommended that the applicant filing for the registration of trademark, conduct an investigation and examination of the similarity and availability of trademark he is applying for the registration. The investigation and examination service must be conducted by the applicant himself at the competent office of the Department of Intellectual Property or online as ‘Copyright Search’ at www.ipthailand.go.th. 2. Submission of trademark application The applicant should provide the following documents: (a) One original registration application form (“Gor. 01”) with the signature of the authorized person and a photo of the trademark.

Things to do in Phuket Phuket has plenty of choices when it comes to places to see and things to do. This month we’d like to offer you a guide to some activities which will give you an insight into Phuket’s cultural side, away from the usual tourist attractions. We hope that this may enhance your holiday experience and perhaps persuade you to return in the future. Try the Local Food. The island has a unique cuisine and both its entrées and desserts are a combination of local and Chinese cooking styles. International visitors shouldn’t miss the opportunity to sample the mouth-watering and unique offerings of Phuket’s kitchens. We have the inside track on toothsome dishes which will tempt your taste buds. Please allow us to offer a few examples:

Dim Sum: Dim Sum. This is a steamed dumpling, filled with a choice of every imaginable variety of sweet or savoury filling, sometimes accompanied by Chinese herb chicken soup and condiments.

Mee Hok Kian: This is made with large yellow noodles similar to Japanese Soba. Mee Hok Kian can be served with pork-bone soup and/or dried noodles. A delightful variety known as Mee Hok Kian Pak includes fried noodles, soup, egg, fried onions, pork crackling and a choice of pork, fish or squid. Recommended Mee Hok Kian restaurants are Mee Ao Gay, located on Poonpol Road, and Mee Sapam at Sapam Village, Thepkasattri Road. Clock Tower Circle, Phuket Road, or at the Oh Tao Restaurant next to Bang Neaw Municipality School, Phuket Road.

Kanom Jin Phuket: This is a vermicelli-based dish served with a variety of curry sauces. Often eaten as breakfast, it comes with a range of fresh vegetables, boiled eggs, and curried fish mousse (Hor Mok).

Oh Tao: (Also known as Hoi Tod Hokgian). This is a fried oyster dish prepared with eggs, flour, bean sprouts and taro root. It’s a favourite Phuket snack. Look for it at the Oh Tao Wongwian Restaurant, located near the Clock Tower Circle, Phuket Road, or at the Oh Tao Restaurant next to Bang Neaw Municipality School, Phuket Road.

Mee Sue: Phuket’s breakfast noodles with a salty taste and white colour when uncooked are boiled and flavoured with oriental spices. They can be served with sliced pork or chicken accompanied by boiled rice or rice soup. Kuo Kwan Restaurant, located on Phuket Road near Robinson’s department store, is rightly famous for this simple but tasty dish.

Oh Aew: An unbeatable Phuket dessert which is made from jellied banana-flour mixed with boiled red beans, ice, and sweet red syrup: available everywhere.Clock Tower Circle, Phuket Road, or at the Oh Tao Restaurant next to Bang Neaw Municipality School, Phuket Road.

View Antique Buildings. A hundred years ago, Phuket City had a prosperous economy based on tin mining, and even back then was an international centre with a large expatriate community of Chinese and Europeans. They built beautiful homes in the style called Sino-Portuguese – terraced townhouses with narrow frontages and accommodations which stretch back from the road. The interiors often include walled gardens and fountains, and are beautifully furnished with antiques and Chinese inspired decorations. Rommanee Road is a fine example which has been fully restored. Visit Talang Road, Yaowarat Road and Dibuk Road. Nowadays, these streets in the Chinese quarter have transformed themselves into busy thoroughfares featuring antique shops, speciality restaurants and more. The Provincial Hall, the Phuket Courthouse and the town branch of the Siam City Bank are further examples of architecture from the past. All well worth a visit.

Feature

is simply in addition to owning the lease the buyer also owns a share in the Thai Company that owns the land the building stands on thereby protecting the lease in perpetuity as he would, in effect, become his own landlord. Under Thai law foreigners cannot own land however a Thai company can and the ownership can be controlled through preferential shareholding which to all intents and purposes is the same as owning it. The Thai Company, of which the individual leaseholder of the villa or apartment becomes an equal shareholder, is controlled by the leaseholders collectively. Transfer fees and taxes relating to leasehold properties are generally cheaper than those relating to the sale of a foreign freehold condominium.

3. Thai Company Clients often ask me to explain the different forms of ownership available in Thailand and I try to make it as simple as possible without leaving out the essentials. There are websites that claim to explain this but the information is often outdated, incorrect or impossible to understand. The following is a simple-to-follow brief of the methods of ownership available to foreigners.

Thai companies are often used when a buyer wishes to obtain the freehold of land, a villa or an apartment. He may choose to use this in conjunction with a lease whereby he leases the land, villa or apartment from the Thai company for additional protection. Setting up a Thai company is a fairly simple and inexpensive process. Taking over an existing Thai company is a straightforward process, however due diligence on the company should be carried out by a lawyer to ensure the company is free from encumbrance – normal practice anywhere in the world.

1. Foreign Freehold Condominium This is a simple method by which a foreigner can obtain outright freehold ownership of a “condo” in Thailand. It's only available for those properties that properly constitute a condominium under the rules of the Condominium Act. When a building has been designated as falling within the Condominium Act an area amounting to 49% of the total can be made available to foreigners. Once the 49% has been taken the remaining units cannot be sold as foreign freehold; it's either necessary to form a Thai company to purchase a unit or it may be possible to take a lease upon the unit. The 51% cannot be purchased freehold by a foreign individual. Rumours suggest the Thai government will increase the percentages for foreign ownership but certainly nothing is likely to happen until after the elections. This is not a problem in Bangkok or, to a lesser extent, Pattaya but it can make selling the Thai quota more difficult in Phuket. You'll often find developers willing to offer incentives to sell the 51% and this has created a virtual two-tier pricing within the same development which continues through to resales. If the Thai quota is changed it could turn out to be highly advantageous to those buyers who chose to take the Thai quota at the lower price. The costs of registration or transfer of a foreign freehold condominium are higher than those of a leasehold property and usually amount to about 6%. These costs can vary and are split into sellers and buyers fees, but it's quite common for both parties to simply split the fees.

4. Offshore Companies You may see a BVI (British Virgin Island Company) or some other offshore entity interjected to purchase any of the above. This is not a tax dodge or a means by which the owner can be invisible (though some owners may see an advantage in remaining anonymous) but can be a tax efficient way to own any of the above. The advantage being that when the owner decides to sell, he only needs to sell the shares within the offshore company as it's the company that owns the asset and not he as an individual. Any subsequent sale can take place offshore in any currency the parties choose. There's a relatively small cost of setting up the offshore company and maintaining it.

And that’s it in brief. I have tried to condense years of understanding and experience into a few paragraphs but I believe the main points are contained herein.

2. Leasehold or “Protected Leasehold” Historically the length of a single lease in Thailand is no more than 30 years, making it necessary to create a contractual obligation within the leasehold agreement for two further terms of 30 years, making a total of 90 years. A typical leasehold for an apartment or condo (architecturally there is no difference) in many parts of the world would be for a similar period. The leasehold structure is also the most common choice when it comes to purchasing a villa within a development. Resort developments use the leasehold structure as most of the common areas fall under the resort management whereas in a condominium building these form part of the Condominium Juristic Entity or CJE and are the condo owners’ collective responsibility.

Rabies Recently a friend, whilst riding his bike, was bitten rather severely by a dog here in Phuket. Apart from the trauma of the dog bite, which was bad enough, he was quite concerned about rabies.

Rabies is a viral disease which affects the central nervous system, essentially the brain and spinal cord and is transmitted from infected mammals to humans. Once symptoms appear in humans who have not been vaccinated, the disease is invariably fatal. The good news for my friend, and others, is there have been no human deaths from rabies in Phuket for over 20 years.

To decrease the likelihood of getting rabies, it's best to minimise any exposure to animals that may have the disease – and this certainly includes any wild animal, including stray dogs and cats which are acting abnormally. The Thai authorities are also reducing the risk by vaccinating dogs and cats, and if you have a pet, you should ensure that it has been vaccinated. Keeping exotic or wild animals as pets should be discouraged, as is having your photo taken with wild animals on Bangla Road and at other tourist areas. If you are bitten, or believe you've been exposed, immediately clean the area with lots of soap and water and see a doctor as soon as possible. It's likely that the doctor will recommend a course of rabies injections, possibly including a vaccine and Rabies Immune Globulin, depending on whether you've been vaccinated before. These injections are not as painful as common myth has led some people to believe, but they are expensive. You'll also need to attend a hospital or clinic on five occasions, as the course requires five injections over a 28 day period.

All mammals, including humans are susceptible to rabies. In Phuket, cats, dogs and monkeys are the most likely mammal to contract and pass on the disease to humans, and it’s important to understand that humans can only contract rabies through exposure to a rabid animal. Exposure is nearly always through a bite, but rabies can also be transmitted if a rabid animal scratches a person or if its saliva comes into contact with broken skin.

Useful info Rabies

There's also a vaccine that's given to people who are at risk of getting rabies, for example veterinarians and those who work with wild animals. In some countries being vaccinated for rabies before coming to Thailand is recommended by health officials, although this is not really necessary, unless you intend to work with wild animals.

It's very rare in Phuket for the observation or testing of an animal to rule out the possibility of rabies. In some other countries, authorities may catch the animal and keep it under observation to see if it develops rabies and only then do the bite victims get their rabies shots. Another option is to kill the animal and examine the brain tissue to eliminate or confirm rabies. Again this is rarely done here in Phuket and you're more likely to just get the rabies shots.

It’s good to know that rabies is not a serious disease in Phuket, but the possibilities of contracting the disease still exist. It’s also nice to know that exposure to a rabid animal does not always result in rabies. If preventive treatment is obtained promptly following a rabies exposure, nearly all cases of rabies will be prevented. However, if preventive treatment is not administered and signs of rabies develop, the disease is invariably fatal. Most doctors here in Phuket therefore recommend that all bites from animals where you're unsure if they've been vaccinated should be evaluated by a qualified expert or doctor.

If you get rabies, the early symptoms include irritability, headache, fever and sometimes itching or pain at the site of exposure. The disease eventually progresses to spasms of the throat and the muscles used for breathing, convulsions, delirium, paralysis and eventually death. Remember, by the time any symptoms appear, rabies cannot be successfully treated. Usually the time between exposure and the onset of symptoms is two to ten weeks, although much longer time periods have been reported.
