Today's weather;It looks a lot nice this morning compared to yesterday, there's still heavy cloud coverage, but the clouds are white today and the storm like winds have disappeared.Yesterday was a nasty day, extremely strong wind bursts accompanied with lots of rain were raging at times. It felt like a rainy season day in October or November. Nothing near what it should be like during April , extremely unusual. Max temp was still in the lower thirties.Camille

Today's weather;Well, today's weather sees everything upside down. There's some serious grey overcast and this early morning, before 6 am saw lots of hard rain. At 7 am it was only 24.5C, which is nice and cool but very untypical for this time of the year. The forecast for the upcoming week isn't that great neither, a nice weekend and than full on rain and wind again for a couple of days.During the night and in the early there where power cuts, hence my blog being so late!Yesterday started out with lots of rain in the morning which ceased during the the afternoon. Max temp reached 30.2C. A total of 59.2mm of rain fell!Camille

Road toll soars
2008-04-16 04:11:00
Road toll soarsOne of the unfortunate side effects of the Songkran festivities in Thailand is the big death toll and injuries that occur each year. People from all over the country go back home during the New Year and many accidents happen during this trek but the majority of accidents happen when driving motorbikes at night whilst drunk. A lot of times by young boys.When we stayed at Chaweng Police station a few days ago during Songkran day to help out with a family member of my wife having a car/bike collision with a tourist, a story was told to me which happened the previous night and is exemplary, unfortunately, for this time of the year.A young boy, younger than 20, had his bike taken away by the Police, the night before Songkran, because he was speeding. Two hours later, the same boy was involved in an accident during which he crashed into a car's window. His throat got cut open by the glass and he died because of that.He's one of the statistics that happen each year in Thai...

Songkran 2008
2008-04-14 09:25:00
Songkran 2008 was fun!In my post there will be some pictures so you can get an idea what's it all about.Songkran is the Thai New Year and is celebrated throughout Thailand.We planned to go to the Pagoda overlooking Chaweng, of which I posted in February. There was a ceremony scheduled early mornings and it would also be a good moment to give an update. However, the moment we planned to leave the house my father in law called and asked us to get to the Chaweng Police station, since a relatives car was involved in an accident with a foreigner on a motorbike.Law in Thailand works slightly different on some levels than in the rest of the world. In Europe, when you get caught whilst drinking and driving, you're in trouble, same as in Thailand. If you get involved in an accident whilst drunk and driving, problems only get bigger and that's where Thailand differs. The police or the 'not guilty' party accepts payment of the damage done and everybody goes home, home free so to speak, ev...

Lucky Charms in Thailand are out of Luck
2008-04-09 13:25:00
Lucky Charms in Thailand are out of LuckLast year in June we had a nice and relaxed trip to Nakhon Si Thammarat in which I talked and had pictures about the Thai Lucky Charms or Buddhist Amulets.The recent Wall Street Journal of 7th April had a very interesting story about the Jatukam Ramathep amulets which were the absolute craze around Thailand last year, see this article in The Nation of last year. Have a read in the Wall Street Journal article, it's interesting and explains the addition to the list of speculative market bubbles popping around the world, where you can add this: Thai religious talismans.It's interesting to see how influential these talismans can be and how Thais believe in the protective powers that amulets or tattoo's can have.Camille

Who wants a new airport on Samui?
2008-04-08 02:09:00
Who wants a new airport on Samui?There's currently, once more so to say, a discussion going on about Samui needing a 2nd airport.The Bangkok Post has published an excellent article today and especially the summary is well written with very good insight;Surely, slowing development to resolve existing problems before they completely get out of control would be the wisest choice.Conclusion: It appears there will be no problem raising funds (to the tune of 2 billion baht) to build a new airport. A concerted effort to address and deal with many of the problems plaguing Samui today would cost a lot less. The present dispute over the new airport should be seen as an opportunity to re-examine Samui's present state of development. Instead of more indiscriminate development and building, the island urgently needs visionary planning based on sustainable tourism concepts.We should not allow this beautiful island to become another victim of short-sighted and destructive, big-money politics.

Update on today's neighbourhood wedding
2008-03-18 15:03:00
Update on today's neighbourhood weddingThe coyote dancing happened already, according to my wife, but I didn't hang out to witness it. Before the girls hit the stage, you had to sit through a couple of hours of Thai slapstick scenes by a kind of theatre group, which isn't that funny if you don't understand what they're saying. So I decided to give it a miss.Before that though, when we went for the food, was the first time I witnessed some gun slinging and life rounds were fired along with some fire crackers by at least two wedding party guests, which nobody really found disturbing and was rather accepted as normal, it seemed.The guns were aimed at the sky and not meant to harm anybody, just hope the slugs didn't come down too hard on anybody!Especially at the mainland this seems to be common practice but not so much on Samui. As already mentioned, it's the first time I witnessed this and it seemed to be a rather casual thing to the people attending the party.The food however ...

The Wedding season continues
2008-03-18 07:46:00
The Wedding season continuesToday there's a wedding across our house, the fourth out of five weddings for us within two weeks and my Mum in Law had 12 invitations during the same time frame. See my post earlier this week.A big open space across the road of our house is used for today's wedding party. This picture shows the local girls in preparing the official entrance gate by dressing it up with flowers. It's around 1 pm and the sun is booming down searingly hot, what an excellent moment to just sit down and catch up on the latest gossip. Whilst others are full on preparing for the food, here they're cutting up various local veggies.Something is going to be very spicy, looking at these two bowls of freshly chopped up Thai chili peppers.Anyone care for some Hor Mok Pla (steamed fish dish). It looks delicious and freshly made! Oops, got corrected and although this looks like Hor Mok, it's actually a rather rare dish called Yog Yuan. A wee bit of Thai Pork Curry being prepared. W...

Chinese Temple, Maenam
2008-03-18 06:30:00
The Chinese Temple in MaenamMakes for a different Temple experience. It's a small but beautiful temple close to the beach in Maenam. At the traffic lights in Maenam, at 7-11, go down to the beach and when you're almost at the end of the road, there's a right turn, that leads you to this Chinese Temple, located at the next corner.A frontal view of the Temple with clear differences compared to the Thai Temples.There are many Chinese on Samui and most originate from the island of Hainan and brought their Chinese religion along with them. Inside; the rich and colourful main altar of the temple. Upon entering, on your left hand in the corner close to the street, there is this small table with some old black and white pictures on it. This is the stuff I really love to see and discover, a peek into the old Samui. Inside the Temple, a sample of the intricate and colourful artwork the Temple can boost.Outside the Temple again, across the road, where this small statue is located, which mea...
