Floodings in Phitsanulok
Floodings in Phitsanulok
Who forgot to close the water, the 21-month-old girl asked her grandfather
Made for - or by Imbeciles?
Parking - or no parking?
A part of Pattaya Beach Road along the Royal Garden Shopping Mall is marked like parking lots, but the curb is marked with red and white markings that prohibit parking.
The police lurk like vultures to ransack the wallets of misguided parkers.
The few real parking spaces are used with impunity by street vendors.
No parking, but no fines
On Second Road the curbs are clearly marked. But our 'well educated' Police are ignoring the offenders ...
Old Promenade
Pattaya's old Beach Promenade offered lots of low-maintenance seats and lots of shade along the 3 kilometer long footpath.
Furthermore the Promenade was slightly elevated to the beach to prevent the water of a flooded Beach Road from washing the sand from the beach into the sea.
New Promenade
The new Promenade, initiated by Ittipol Khunpluem in 2013, the younger brother of today's Mayor Sonthaya Kunploem, doesn't offer any of that.
The few seats are mostly damaged and the three Rondelles along the Promenade are unkempt and dirty.
The new Promenade is and remains a permanent construction site, an annoyance and a real eyesore.
No Pedestrian lights
No Pedestrian lights
No Pedestrian lights
One of the busiest intersections in Pattaya has no signal lights for pedestrians.
For pedestrians crossing the streets, it's a daily run for life.
One Way - or not?
'Professional' markings at the 2nd Road entrance to Soi Pattayaland 1 (Soi 13/4, off Pattaya Beach Road).
Is the Soi now a one-way street - or not?
Stupid traffic rules like the one shown above are the rule here in Pattaya and not the exception.
'It' also works without the help of the blue pills!
'It' also works without the help of the blue pills!
With increasing age, but also through an unhealthy lifestyle, the vessels lose elasticity and can narrow. The result is a circulatory disorders.
They occur not only in the hands, feet, arms and legs, they can also be felt in the brain and in the sexual organs.
Good news are, that through exercise and a more balanced diet, circulatory disorders can be prevented.
The cause of erectile dysfunction can also be traced back to insufficient blood circulation in the sex organs.
Since the blood cannot reach the tissue of the penis as usual, an erection is not possible. It reduces libido and sexual performance is affected.
Many men use Cialis, Kamagra, Levitra or Viagra to correct erectile dysfunction in the short term.
These drugs are known as PDE-5 inhibitors. They relax the blood vessels and allow more blood to enter the tissues of the penis. However, they have no effect on erectile dysfunction caused by nerve damage.
Viagra & Co. cannot eliminate the actual cause of erectile dysfunction. Like almost all drugs, PDE-5 inhibitors have side effects. Therefore, a doctor should be consulted before using them.
You can prevent circulatory disorders by avoiding known risk factors.
For example, it is recommended that you
  • stop smoking
  • say goodbye to alcohol
  • avoid sugar and fried food
  • reduce overweight
  • ensure sufficient exercise
  • eat a healthy and balanced diet
A helpful remedy against circulatory disorders is a consistent exercise therapy: if you move in a targeted manner, you improve your blood circulation.
A change in diet can also work wonders and not only helps to improve blood circulation in the organs for a short time.
Celery, lettuce, asparagus, onions, tomatos, watermelons, bananas, strawberries, cauliflower, broccoli, beetroot, dark chocolate, garlic, cayenne pepper, Korean ginseng, and tea containing catechins have been shown to help with circulatory disorders and erectile dysfunction.
Regular intake of the above foods improves blood flow not only to the penis but to the whole body in the long run.
And last but not least: Don't forget to drink your 3 to 5 cups of coffee daily.
Freshly brewed coffee from real beans - not from Nestle and Co. - reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Coffee drinkers have a lower risk of heart disease, stronger DNA and are happier.
Real coffee is one of the biggest sources of antioxidants in the Western diet.

No more kissing on Soi 29/1
The Kiss Pub, located at the VIP Bar Complex on Soi 29/1, off Naklua Road, closed down.
The venue never had any connection to the still successful Kiss Food & Drinks chain, which also operates a restaurant on Naklua Road.
One moment so, the next otherwise
From Harem to 6688
The One Harem show, also located on Soi 29/1, off Naklua Road, changed its name to 6688 Show.
The change of name goes hand in hand with a reorientation of the target clientele. Instead of customers from the Indian subcontinent, the management is keeping an eye on Chinese tourists.
Numbers like 6688 are known as Angel Numbers. Chineese people believe 6688 express good luck, prosperity, wealth and abundance.
From Phenomena to 289
The Phenomena Show building on the infamouse Soi 29/1 also changed its name to 289 Showtoattract more tourists frommainland China.
For Chinese people the number 2 stands for yin and yang, 8 is the ultimate number of good luck, and 9 guarantees a long life
Let's hope that at last this time the ineradicable superstition helps all

No Alcohol Days
Thailand's National No Alcohol Days include Buddhist holidays and election days.
On all other days alcohol can only be sold between 11:00-14:00 and 17:00-24:00.
Vendors caught breaking the ban are liable to a prison sentence of up to six months, a 10'000 Baht fine or both - but local Police use their own discretion to decide which venues need to be visited and fined...
Don't start laughing:
Do not try to buy non alcoholic beers (available from Clausthaler and Oettinger in this country).
The shops won't sell them during dry days.
Some not even sell Soda Water, because Thais and their Police associate it with (Thai) Whisky...
There's a sucker born every minute...
