  1. Videos: Pattaya YouTuber highlights rubbish....and the seedy backstreets Image: Screenshot via Manager Manager reported that a YouTuber known for his site called "Steff's Thailand Travel" had highlighted the issue of trash at the resort. A video showed apparent police indifference to people tossing trash in the Arunothai/Bongkot area of central Pattaya. It was filmed last year, they said, but nothing has changed. Another video by the same vlogger features "The unknown secret bars and side sois of Walking Street". This concentrates on an area where Steff claims there are "rare Indian lady boys". The site indicates Steff has more than 9,000 subscribers. The garbage video (the one about the trash that is) was viewed 2,000 times. This isn't the first time the issue of people of dumping trash on Soi Arunothai has been highlighted. Earlier this month, a concerned expat and local resident sent footage to Thaivisa which showed two men fly tipping on Soi Arunothai. The men, who appeared not to notice or care that they were being filmed could be seen dumping purple and green sofas on the side of the road. -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2018-06-21
  2. Online 90 day reporting available from April 1st BANGKOK: A spokesperson for Thailand’s Immigration Bureau has confirmed the new online service for 90 day reporting will be effective from April 1st 2015. Col. Worawat Amornwiwat confirmed on Thursday that foreign nationals in Thailand will now be able to report their address via the Immigration Bureau’s website, rather than having to attend their local immigration office in person or send the notification by registered mail. Col. Worawat said the new service has been introduced as part of Thailand’s integration into the ASEAN Economic Community and will provide more convenience for foreigners staying in Thailand. Foreign nationals staying in Thailand can make their 90 day report online by completing the form at https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online/online/tm47/TM47Action.do or by visiting the main ]Immigration Bureau website Whilst the new service of online 90 day reporting is likely to be largely welcomed by many expats and foreign nationals residing in Thailand, the downside is that the service is only currently available via Microsoft’s Internet Explorer - a web browser which Microsoft has recently said it will replace as part of the launch of Windows 10 later this year. Immigration officials have said that the online 90 day reporting service will hopefully be available on other web browsers at some point in the future but have not given any further indication of when this will be. After being originally announced in February there have been various discussions[/size on the Thaivisa Forum related to online 90 day reporting, with some expats raising concerns about the security and efficiency of the system being able to service what is an important requirement for foreign nationals who live in Thailand. ******************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** Update Immigration has changed the address for the online reporting. The new one is https://extranet.immigration.go.th/fn90online

Shhhhh, here’s a sneak peak: The Show Producer – Inspiring a Female-Centric Industry How WILD NIGHT ASIA received the inspiration of curating this industry in Southeast Asia was in fact, a fluke. On a self-discovery trip, WILD NIGHT ASIA founder Natt Kawinrachataprida ended up traveling alone to Las Vegas, Nevada. With just herself, she booked an evening show with Thunder. Let’s say, she was very entertained. YSIS Entertainment is a celebrity & live production brokerage and talent management agency with a division to bring forth eclectic live production shows into Southeast Asia, managed by entrepreneur Natt Kawinrachataprida. The main objective is to bring forth international spotlight for Thailand& the Southeast Asia Region – and Vice Versa. Teaming up with Noppadon Jason Chiransanti, Managing Director of PMD+, with many renowned events such as ‘Road To Ultra Thailand’ and CEO of The Marvel Experience Thailand: Theme Entertainment Attraction launching soon, they created a brand called WILD NIGHT ASIA in 2018. WILD NIGHT ASIA will be focused on introducing a series of female-centric entertainment in Thailand and regionally. ‘It’s time to show the world that Southeast Asia is ready for the live-production experience, and we’re ready to experience a new type of entertainment. Over the past decade, Southeast Asian women have become independent decision makers, financially stronger, and personally savvy!” quoted Natt Kawinrachataprida, “We know how this type of entertainment is not often broadcasted, therefore this year we encourage women to come together and show your fun side, at a show made for YOU! It’s pure entertainment that shouldn’t be missed!” “With WILD NIGHT’s second run of Australia’s Thunder From Down Under, we hope to keep our audience at the tip of their toes. We cherish different, experimental, and interactive. We will continue to introduce a series of the new category of entertainment. We thank and hope to receive great support from Thai people for giving us the opportunity in trying something that has never been done before,” commented Noppadon Jason Chiransanti. In 2017, local celebrities and personalities gathered to attend and show their support. The list included Aon Sripan, Lukkade Metinee Kingpayom, Cindy Bishop, Gumpun Bazoo, Natalie Glebova Miss Universe 2005, Chutima Durongdej Miss Universe Thailand 2009, GubGib, Lydia, and many more.

  10. “Do you want a fight?” Drunk foreigner harassing locals in Hua Hin escapes arrest An English speaking foreign man was lucky not to spend a night in the cells after acting aggressively towards paramedics, police and locals in Hua Hin. The man was caught on camera threatening people close in the Soi Bintabaht area of Hua Hin on Tuesday. The incident took place when a friend of the man, who appeared to be in wheelchair, was involved in an collision with a motorcycle. While his friend was receiving treatment, the unidentified man could be seen grabbing a paramedic by the collar and generally making a nuisance of himself. He then asked onlookers “do you want a fight with me?” “I'll kick your arse”, he said raising his fists. Bizarrely the man could then be seen removing his sandals before goading others, who only minutes earlier had been trying to assist his injured friend. That was enough for a police officer to step in and have a word with the foreigner, who in another clip could be seen giving an apologetic wai to the policeman. The footage of the clip was uploaded to Facebook. People commenting criticised the man’s actions. One comment read: “If he’d have behaved like that in his own country he would be put in jail”. -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2018-04-04
  11. Video: The parent's grief: Family receives body of second child victim of balcony fall A Thai mother and Swiss father were shown on Thai TV receiving the dead body of their daughter Chanida Borel, aged 7. Chanida was the second child to die following the fall of all four of their children from a platform off a balcony that collapsed at a block of flats in Ramkhamhaeng, Bangkok, at the beginning of May. Alex Borel, aged 5, died at the scene. Chanida or Dani died on Monday after fighting for her life over the last six weeks. Two elder siblings, a boy and a girl, aged 11, have survived. One of these Luka Borel, aged 10, was present at the start of three day funeral rites for Chanida that began on Thursday. She will be cremated Saturday. Luka's mother Ratikan Prakaikaew was interviewed by a reporter in which she told her son that it was not his fault. Marcel Borel - the Swiss father who is an English teacher in Bangkok - also spoke. He clearly believed that he thought his daughter would pull through but fighting back tears he had to admit that she was now gone. The mother and father have reportedly been involved in acrimonious disputes over custody. The children were home alone when the accident occurred after midnight. Grandparents were staying in another flat when the children fell from the fourth floor. The mother was out at the night shift at a hotel. A platform reportedly used to drain plates collapsed. -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2018-06-14

  14. What You Really Want to Know About Cryptocurrency Trading for Beginners Have you ever imaged yourself Trading Cryptocurrencies? Now there are well over 1000 cryptocurrencies or also known as Alt-coins with Bitcoins dominating this market with almost 50% dominance. Many people have been asking me how I’m able to earn consistently and profitably Day-trading Crypto-currencies. They can’t imagine what to look for out of all those Coins on the market and when to buy. And they want to know which coins are in demand and when to buy. For those who haven’t yet started trading cryptocurrencies or just starting then at it’s most fundamental level is to correctly position yourself in a coin that is due to increase in value whether in a gradual way or sky rocket. It isn’t just a case of calling it buying and selling as there are cycles of a coin that need to be addressed first. To become successful and skilled in crypto-currency trading needs an investment in yourself first even before you think about getting some Bitcoins. According to a recent study approx only 6% of those studied are aware of Bitcoins, it’s current price, potential and implications. Are you one of those? If so, you may know that the price has increased dramatically from just 0.10 USD 7 years ago to almost 5,000 USD today. In order for you to profit from Bitcoins and Alt-coins you’ll need to enter the crypto market with the correct mentality and approach. You may have heard before that you usually need to lose hundreds of dollars during the learning curve as a beginner. But I just don’t accept that, it is truly unnecessary and unnaceptable. For beginners, I don’t accept any losses. As friends and family have began their journey into Cryptocurrencies I support and ensure they minimize and manage their risk to minimize losses in the long term. The best analogy that’s helped me to progress fairly quickly at Trading is that this game is like owning a Store. You have many products to choose from as in Alt-coins, you buy at wholesale and sell at retail or at a premium. Many traders make the mistake of buying at retail and then trying to sell at a premium price which often gets them burned with losses. We are no different than store owners who buy at the cheapest wholesale prices who then sell at retail or at a premium during a time of high demand only. The majority of Traders lose out because of a lack of fundamental understanding and preparation before doing anything. Enter with the correct mindset, the right game plan, patience and decision making, then that’s the beginning of successful, consistent and profitable trading.

    Chin Ups

    I do quite a few pull ups as i've got a pull bar in the garden, which doubles up as a swing for my daughter. Win, win. I started doing band assisted chin ups and then onto static holds - holding the chin up at the top of the movement for a couple of seconds than lowering myself down slowly. In fact probably the static holds were most beneficial in increasing my numbers for chin ups, so if you're struggling to do more chin ups maybe give this a go. For pull ups it's a different story. I can only probably do half as many pull ups as I can chin ups but it's something i'm working on. Other things I've done to increase chin up/pull ups: On the minute every minute for 10 minutes do 5 pull ups - by the end you've done 50 pull ups in 10 minutes. (Or pick how ever many reps you can manage. I stated doing this for 2 reps per minute and built up from there). Another method - minute 1 = 1 rep, minute 2 = 2 reps, minute 3 = 3 reps - aim for ten minutes, stop when you can not do the number of reps in a minute. Pyramids - similar to the above but go up to 5 minutes and then back down, so number of reps will look something like this. 1,2,3,4,5,5,4,3,2,1. Like Rob mentioned in a previous post, I'm also going to start adding weighted pull ups from next month. My overall goal though is to be able to do muscle ups. I want to be able to do one muscle up, unassisted by the end of the year.

  21. How To Start Using Less Plastic In Bangkok Right Now By Asaree Thaitrakulpanich, Staff Reporter Grabbing just a cup of bubble milk tea can produce a hefty load of plastic. There’s the cup, its lid, the straw, a bag and that disposable handle-bag thing. After a few happy moments of sipping, it all goes off to the landfill for the next 500 years. Take home some dish soap from the supermarket in a new bottle – the old, perfectly good one is already pushing up daisies. Time to cut your plastic life down to size? Here are three things you can do right now in Bangkok, from a cafe that refills your empties and mother-daughter team promoting reusable straws to a woman who sews washable cotton pads for that time of the month.

  23. Australian man stabbed in Pattaya nightclub reveals details of his attack, denies groping woman Jeremy McCall being treated shortly after arriving in hospital following the attack An Australian man has said a misunderstanding led to him being stabbed in a Pattaya nightclub. Jeremy McCall told Thaivisa he is now back home in Sydney recovering from his injuries after being discharged from hospital. “I’m okay now I’m back home in Australia and everything is going well in recovery”, Jeremy said via Facebook. Jeremy, 22, and his friends had been in Mixx Discotheque in Walking Street during the early hours of Thursday morning when he was stabbed in the chest following a confrontation with another foreigner. Thai police have since identified the man as an Israeli national who fled Thailand just hours after stabbing Jeremy. Following the attack, Jaydon Sienkiewicz was incorrectly named as the victim. However, Jeremy has now revealed that Jaydon is his best friend and was with him in Mixx Discotheque. Jeremy says he isn’t exactly sure why Jaydon was named as the victim but presumes it was because he gave a statement to police and his name was then picked up by local reporters. CCTV footage shows Jeremy moments before he was stabbed After the incident was originally reported by Thai media, grainy CCTV footage appeared to show Jeremy groping a woman who was with the man who attacked him. The man then produced a flick knife and within seconds had stabbed Jeremy. However, Jeremy now says that the footage doesn’t tell the full story - crucially that the woman was known to him and that he was tapping her in order to get her attention. Jeremy said the woman was a friend of one of his friends and he wanted to tell her that his friend was looking for her. “I didn’t grab her arse, I was trying to tap her to get her attention to say my mate was looking for her,” Jeremy told the Daily Telegraph. “The cops believed me because they saw from earlier footage she was with us all night.” Jeremy described feeling a “little jab” but didn’t initially realise he had been stabbed. “I walked over to my mates after I got stabbed — they thought I had red wine on my shirt — then I lifted my shirt and it was spurting blood,” he said. “I was rushed out of the club and found the police who put me on the back of a ute and took me straight to hospital.” That hospital was Pattaya Memorial Hospital where Jeremy describes a chaotic scene of people with doctors and nurses who couldn’t speak English unable to update him on his condition and journalists with cameras barging in to take photos of him as he lay in his hospital bed. He was later transferred to another hospital where Jeremy says doctors could speak English and give a full update on his condition. On Friday it was revealed by Thai media how the owner of Mixx Nightclub and Thai police presented him with gifts and a cheque for 5,000 baht to help pay for his medical costs. -- © Copyright Thai Visa News 2018-06-09

  25. VIDEO: Thai man brutally assaults Aussie expat in Pattaya following road rage incident A video captured the moment a Thai man brutally assaulted a western man in Pattaya on Wednesday. Police were called following reports of a road rage incident. As reporters filmed a discussion between the parties involved, the Thai man is seen launching a vicious blow to the western man who is knocked to ground and appears to be unconscious. In the clip, the Thai man lands the brutal punch at around 1 minute 40 seconds. The incident happened outside a school and right in front of the police man. A terrified school girl can be seen screaming for the Thai man to stop. Video footage shows what looks like a machete in one of the vehicles although it is not clear who the weapon belongs to.
