  1. Middle eastern/Israeli food i've only ever eaten in Thailand - there's a really good Middle Eastern restaurant in Hua Hin. Vietnamese food is another i've only eaten in Thailand. I'd not tried Sushi before living in Thailand either.
  2. Fauda on Netflix is well worth a look. Best bit of TV i've watched in a while

  4. Gen Prayut confirms Thailand general election in Feb 2019 BANGKOK,- Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-ocha has confirmed the country's readiness to strengthen trade ties with England and hold a general election early next year. On his visit to the United Kingdom, Gen Prayut had talks with Speaker of the House of Lords, Lord Fowler about promoting trading opportunities between the two countries through the so-called Global British policy and the Thailand 4.0 policy, with the Thai - UK Business Leadership Council playing a key role in the matter. With regard to Thailand's political situation, Gen Prayut confirmed that the general election would be held in February next year and local elections might take place three months after the general election. Gen Prayut also had the opportunity to meet Thai people in London and thanked those who offered moral support to him. Thailand's prime minister said he was not angry with those who oppose him, adding he came to the UK for the country's sake. Gen Prayut however, had to cut short his meeting with Thai expats due to a terror warning from security officers. The Royal Thai Embassy in London announced the warning affecting Thai people and advised them to exercise caution when returning home.

  8. Thaksin points out why some former MPs are leaving Pheu Thai Fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra has explained to his supporters why some former MPs are leaving Pheu Thai for other parties, saying they may be doing it for money or may be too confident in themselves. In a video call on Friday afternoon to his supporters, Thaksin said those leaving Pheu Thai may be doing so for two reasons. “I am thinking about sending a Twitter message to thank them for leaving Pheu Thai. In doing so they are like giving people of the new generation a chance to get elected as people’s representatives.” “There are two reasons for them to be leaving. First, they want a large sum of money from those who are foolish enough to pay them — only to quit politics after taking the money. Second, they are too confident in themselves, forgetting that in the past they were elected because of the party’s name,” Thaksin said to his supporters.

But then she heard a cry from the third floor and looked up to see the boy falling down. He landed on the second-floor balcony before falling to the ground. The boy suffered severe head injuries and was rushed to the Bangkok Hospital Rayong before being forwarded to the provincial hospital where he later died.

  13. Pakistani brothers nabbed over thefts of gold necklace, luxury watch By The Nation Two Pakistani brothers were on Saturday taken to a gold shop in Surat Thani to re-enact their alleged theft of Bt102,000 gold necklace. The brothers were arrested in Bangkok on Friday for allegedly stealing the necklace from the Mae Mali 7 gold shop in Surat Thani’s Muang district on Wednesday evening. Security camera footage at the shop showed two men asking to view the gold necklace and a small 1.9-gram gold ring. One man bought the gold ring for about Bt2,800, after first drawing the attention of sales staff by asking for a bargain and threatening to pay Bt300 under the price. Meanwhile, another man quickly concealed the gold necklace under the mobile phone in his left hand. The saleswoman realised that the gold necklace was stolen only after the two left the shop. Surat Thani police traced the licence plate number of a rented car and sought help from Bangkok police to arrest the two in the Khao San Road area. During the re-enactment, the two apologised to the gold-shop owner, and said they were drunk at the time of the theft. The same men were also charged with previously stealing a diamond-stud Rado watch from a watch shop in Songkhla’s Hat Yai district.

  14. New Zealander accused of masterminding murder of Korean mom in Chiang Mai Chiang Mai police on Saturday arrested a New Zealander for allegedly masterminding the murder of his Korean mother by setting it up as quarrel between his wife and the old woman. Brian Lee, 50, was arrested and charged with masterminding the murder of An Jung Ja, 76, at a house in the Mountain View village in Tambon San Phisua in Chiang Mai’s Muang district on Thursday. He was being detained at the Mae Ping police station. Earlier, Lee claimed his mother had a quarrel with her daughter-in-law, Park Songhee, who then stabbed her to death out of anger. Lee said his mother became angry at the speed of Park’s response to being called, and so grabbed her daughter-in-law and slammed her head against the wall and injuring her, before Park then stabbed her. But after checking forensic evidence and security-camera footage, police concluded that Lee had lied about the quarrel and took part in the killing of his mother. His wife was under police watch at Chiang Mai Hospital. Police said Lee’s mother had several apartments and businesses in South Korea, and Lee had brought her to live with the couple in Chiang Mai six months ago.
