  1. Yes indeed, well done to the British Cave experts, although we were lead to believe that the Thai Navy Seals won the day ? Never the less, I guess they were there ... I don't even know these boys, but I kept waking up every morning hoping and praying that they were safe, and there we go ... I must admit, I had my doubts. Well done to all concerned .... now lets get them out without a hassle ....

    More international assistance reaches Chiang Rai

    errr ... sorry friend, GPS trackers won't help in cave, they require full exposure to the Satellite signals above to obtain their position ... a compass will however, work in a cave, but to late to use a compass if you don't know where you are to start of with ... I like the bag with lights in though it will give them a sign of hope
  3. Haa ! ... my fading eyes saw this line; " .... Land Transport fined the driver Beng, 51, 5,000 baht and suspended him from driving for 30 days. ...." were I thought he had been fined 51,500 baht, which is what it should have been ... and suspended from driving any Public Transport for life ! Include all the comments above about driving through the lights AFTER they had turned red ... double any fines or suspensions for lying ...

    Country shocked as rejected men resort to murder

    You know ... you are 100% correct ... although we live in Laos, I took my Lao son aged 21 to a Psychiatrist in Khon Kaen, Video Gaming was his problem, we suspected this, hence the reason we needed both an expert opinion and the words from the Dr's mouth rather than M&D saying "Stop playing those stupid games" ... the Dr was great, fortunately our son took note, he's now off games playing maybe an hour or so on a Saturday, his whole life has changed, his moods, character his yearning to get out and get a job also ... if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it ... the treatment came with some medication which he took for a month or so, and then we had to closely monitor him ... we were very lucky it all turned out for the best and we weren't 'too late' ... the Dr. went on to tell us how common this problem is and how 'fatal' this disorder can be .... I'm sorry for the long message, however, I just wanted to let other parents know who may have a child (or two) like our son was, to let them know that there is a cure and if the child is as cooperative as our son was, you just won't believe the change in him/her and the better life that he leads now
  5. Perhaps she was unaware that she was being kidnapped at the time, they could have pulled any story to fool her into going with the officer(s) ... especially when she has uniformed 'officials' around her ... so few employee's at the airport would bother asking any questions also, as there is so much activity in general at the airport, had the culprits come across a senior officer during there escape from the airport, things may have been different ... or maybe not ? I would imagine this lady has experienced similar but maybe not such a big scam as this one, previously, as many Hong Kong businessmen are up to some form or skullduggery or another
  6. RIP from the British Bulldog ... what a way to go ... been there, seen that, not quite enough to give me a heart attack though .... although sometimes the 'bill' .... !!!!

    Drunk driving ‘a major cause’ of road accidents

    " ..... related authorities have seized a total of 10,099 vehicles (7,372 motorcycles and 2,727 cars and trucks) ..... " Where the hell to they keep all these vehicles ... and is it the Police or Admin people who look after the storage and release ? If its the Police Officers, that takes a hell of a lot of them off the roads whilst accounting for these vehicles etc. ... when they should be out there catching the drunks ....
  8. Emmm ... arrhh .... uurrhh ... Oh Bloody Hell, I just can't think of any to to write ....
  9. You know ... this is such an important issue to some International Mining Companies (for example), that they have GPS units coupled to speed and stop indicators on 'all' their vehicles no matter where they are in the world, they monitor the speed of the driver, from A to B, his average speed, even the speed around various dangerous corners, including how many times they stop (The must stop every so often at allocated places for a 10 minute break), average economy etc. etc. ... all in the line of safety, and if a driver doesn't scratch up to their standards, their out .... so why not the same with Buses and trucks in Thailand ? I also remember when Singapore coupled flashing lights to trucks and alike that flashed or signaled when the driver was going over the speed limit ... these flashing lights where placed on the roofs of the trucks .... ????
  10. For the last 3 years, my family (we live in Vientiane), would fly Udon to Phuket direct, buy a weeks worth of food and drink and off we go, 10 of us ... 12 last year ... we never actually put foot on the beach of Maya Bay, we were happy to just sit on a mooring with the Yacht, plus of course a bit of swimming a snorkeling ... away from the beech in deep water, the coral wasn't too bad, but cut up never the less, from people dropping anchors which you are not supposed to do ... unlike the comments in the message above me, we found hundreds of fish, alas, mainly the same species, which I may add, gave you a nip every so often ... however, My God, the bottom of the bay was littered with plastic Bags, Coke Cans, beer cans, and a lot of rubbish in general ... we all thought of the poor fish getting entangled in all this, but also thought, how would we feel if people just threw rubbish over our back fence every day .... A GREAT move to control the bay, although I'm not sure that 4 months will be enough for it to recover, more like a couple of years ... I really hope the authorities concerned clean up the bottom of the bay, that will take a month or so ... they should also have Police or Rangers on Jet skies ready to pounce on people doing the wrong thing, all we have every seen is a ranger with a couple of helpers collecting money off the boats that hit the beach .... where does all that money go ?
  11. Amazing ... they list "Don't drink and drive" as number 8 on the list, shouldn't that be first and foremost ? And 10 years for a quick grope of a Nom ... whilst selling or giving alcohol to a minor is only 1 year ? ... come on guys, get your act together ... !
  12. I think its a video of the actual video on a screen, hence they have cropped the guy and people involved ... there's probably a lot more to see than what we see ! Anyway, the dirty scumbag ... makes my blood boil !

    More Wi-Fi hotspots for Phuket as plan to tag tourists mulled

    I can see it now ... perverted Policemen drooling over a random chosen Farang and his Bands data ... "Oh look, that's the 5th time that Farang has been in room 69 at Madam Fefee's massage parlor this week !"
  14. About time the Police woke up to this idea of using Foreigners or locals to catch criminals like this, likewise as many ThaiVisa viewers have suggested, catch the bad overcharging Taxis the same way and other potential crims such as drug dealers etc. ... the rest of the world does it ... why not here also !
  15. Not enough of these Good Deed stories in Thai Visa in my opinion ...
