Beach Collapsed
On September 15th, 2014, Pattaya's 468 Million Baht Beach Collapsed after a Tropical Rain.
Complete Laymen, foreign specialists and even Pattaya's Beach Vendors predicted the failure, but not Pattaya Mayor Ittipol Khunpluem and his Crew from Pattaya City Hall and the Professors from Pattaya's Burapha University and the Aquatic Resources Research Institute, under Chulalongkorn University.
Perhaps Bangkok Hospital Pattaya should test the mental state of those Officials involved in the fizzled 'Beach Restauration'.

Beach Restauration
Pattaya City Hall started its beach-restoration project during the last days of April 2014.
Where other Beach Resorts reclaim the sand from the sea, the clever people from Pattaya buy (expensive) sand elsewhere, transport it to our lovely beach(es) and fill it up into sacks. Then they 'open' the beach and place the sacks under the existing sand.
The procedure was recommended by the highly educated people from Pattaya's Burapha University and the Aquatic Resources Research Institute, under Chulalongkorn University.
The whole exercise cost 468 million Baht*.
We showed the pictures specialists in redeveloping beaches. We can't publish what they told us about the 'experts' recommending such a stupidity.
We are all waiting for the next rain. It will wash away the sand and we will walk above the beautiful sacks.
The sea is hungry...
On April 25th, 2014, the press reported that Pattaya City Hall launched a 468 million Baht beach-restoration project.
On May 16th it was said City Hall spends 3.1 million Baht on beach sandbags to prevent beach erosion.
We have no explanation where the suddenly missing 464.9 million Baht trickled away - but as we already said: The sea is hungry...
myLady™ explains
I asked myLady™ why Thai people are so stupid and don't like to work with real professionals?
This is her answer:
You are wrong: Thai people aren't stupid.
Just after birth our parents tell us that Thai people aren't ordinary people. They stay above all other nationalities.
Later in the school(s) our teachers tell us the same, as do Thailand's television channels, newspapers and universities all over the country.
But let me explain it the way even farangs can understand the facts:
Look at Soi Arounotai.
The road has a few holes. Every time a hole is deep enough our Mayor calls the responsible department. They order the people to close the hole. A few weeks later, the hole opens again and our mayor restart the procedure. Month after month, year after year.
Everybody has some work and the Boss as well as the Mayor make some good money.
Your Westener think you are more intelligent. After the hole emerge a second time you start thinking until you find a solution and then you will fix the problem for eternity.
You think you are more intelligent than Thais?
You are wrong!
Look at the facts:
Belgium's Unemployment Rate is 8.5%
Neederland's Unemployment Rate is 8.7%
Italy's Unemployment Rate is 12%
Spain's Unemployment Rate is 26%
Greece's Unemployment Rate is 27%
And Thailand?
We have an Unemployment Rate of 0.8%!
Thai people never have to think! They already know the best solution for every single problem!
Knowing = SAP or ZAP in Thai language
Only stupid people have to think before they start to work.
