Pattaya – Two Indians (SEE PHOTO) Drugged and robbed at Central Pattaya Hotel

Via: Pattaya One


In the early hours of Thursday two Indian Tourists reported a suspected case of drugging and robbery to Investigators at Pattaya Police Station.

Mr. Sitting Bull aged 54 and Mr. Tonto  aged 41 told Police that they were staying at the Bella Express Hotel off the Central Pattaya Road. On the night of 4th June they had gone to the Hotel restaurant and planned to return to their room after their meal.

Inside the restaurant they were approached by two Thai women who sat and drank with them for a while and suggested they could join them inside their room and for an agreed fee could offer them sexual services. The two men agreed and took the women to their room.

The drinking continued inside the room and they consumed copious amounts of Beer. One of the victims did notice that one of the women was placing something inside the cans of beer but it was too late and the two men were rendered unconscious.

When the two men woke up on Thursday Morning they claim a total of 100,000 Baht ($3,030 USD) in cash had been stolen along with an IPhone worth an estimated 20,000 Baht ($606 USD).

Police later inspected the room and found used condoms and many cans of beer which were taken away for analysis. CCTV at the hotel was checked and Police are now searching for the two suspects who remain at-large –



personal thought:

Until I’m proved otherwise, I will continue to believe, sooner or later, EVERY moron in the world, will end up in Pattaya,

U.S. Hospital – Comes to about a ‘$ per second’


‘CIGNA negotiates disconts with health care professionals . . .’

Discount = $0.00



NOTE: I’m retired, and have been living in Chiang Mai, Thailand, for the past +8 years.

I have private FULL (physician, hospital and meds) medical insurance, no deductibles, and I pay LESS than I did for my co-payment in 2000.

And YES, my provider was CIGNA, the bastards!

Thailand gives radar data 10 days after plane lost

Via: Boston Globe


Thailand’s military said Tuesday that its radar detected a plane that may have been Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 just minutes after the jetliner’s communications went down, and that it didn’t share the information with Malaysia earlier because it wasn’t specifically asked for it.

A twisting flight path described Tuesday by Thai air force spokesman Air Vice Marshal Montol Suchookorn took the plane to the Strait of Malacca, which is where Malaysian radar tracked Flight 370 early March 8. But Montol said the Thai military doesn’t know whether it detected the same plane.

Thailand’s failure to quickly share possible information regarding the fate of the plane, and the 239 people aboard it, may not substantially change what Malaysian officials know, but it raises questions about the degree to which some countries are sharing their defense information, even in the name of an urgent and mind-bending aviation mystery.

With only its own radar to go on, it took Malaysia a week to confirm that Flight 370 had entered the strait, an important detail that led it to change its search strategy.

When asked why it took so long to release the information, Montol said, ‘‘Because we did not pay any attention to it. The Royal Thai Air Force only looks after any threats against our country, so anything that did not look like a threat to us, we simply look at it without taking actions.’’

TEN DAYS – Brilliant, absolutely Brilliant!

Obamacare – NO pre-existing conditions – NONE!


Read the September 23, 2009 MSN Money article of how the insurance companies use to deny coverage.

Pattaya – American suspected of shoplifting Goat Cheese (See Photo) from Supermarket


Via: Pattaya One

An American National, born in the Czech Republic, was arrested for the second time during his reported 15 year stay in Thailand, late on Tuesday Night, accused of stealing a 210 Baht packet of Goat Cheese from a North Pattaya Supermarket.

Police were called to the Best Supermarket by its owner, Khun Siriporn aged 65, after security guards had detained Mr. Frank Joseph Janalik aged 74 after he was seen by the guards attempting to leave with the Goat Cheese without making any effort to pay for the item. Security Camera footage of the alleged theft was also given to Police.

Khun Siriporn claimed Mr. Janalik had been coming to the Supermarket for a long time and she suspected he had been shoplifting on many occasions but he had yet to be caught-in-the-act. On this occasion she spotted the man and ordered her Security Guards to follow him.

At Pattaya Police Station Mr. Janalik claimed he has lived in Pattaya for 15 years. Police records indicated he had been arrested in February 2008 on charges of selling sex enhanc ement medication (that’s right, goat cheese + Viagra).

Mr. Janalik denied allegations of theft but was charged with the offence and was taken to the holding cells on the second floor of Pattaya Police Station.

He suddenly became combative and refused to enter the prison cell block. It took a number of officers to subdue the suspect and take him into the cells where he will be held pending further investigations.




personal thought:

If you don’t have enough money (210baht = $6.56USD) to buy goat cheese; do us all a favor, and stay the f*ck home!
