Pattaya news - Fabulous 103fm

With every feature of the current Covid restrictions being tabled in a major meeting of the CCSA today, the public awaits news on changes to regulations. Headed by the PM the CCSA will debate lifting entry regulations for tourists coming here, including the current requirement of a PCR test prior to boarding a flight to Thailand AND the current PCR testing done on arrival that requires a days quarantine in an approved hotel with secure transport from the airports on arrival.  The entertainment industry is hoping for relief too as clubs and bars hope for approval to reopen in their former styles and the current requirement of 20,000 dollar covid insurance for tourists arriving, recently reduced from 50,000 may just be reduced further to only 10,000 dollars US. Mask wearing in public is likely to remain a requirement here and we could see songkran restrictions for group gatherings and a possible ban on water splashing. By this afternoon, it’s hoped that the outcome of the meeting will be publicized and we will update you on that.

Home and business electricity bills are set to rise for a 3 month period, starting in May, following the increase in costs of fuel used to generate power. The fuel tariff portion of bills will rise by just over point 23 of a baht, that’s 23.38 satang, per unit. Global gas and oil price hikes have been blamed BUT as those months are at the centre of the hot season here, bills for all using air conditioning are expected to soar. What can you do to CUT bills? First and foremost CLEAN your air conditioning unit, indoors and out. Clogged fins in the cooling system mean that units have to work twice as hard to remove heat from air, and the cost of that is minimal or indeed can be done by yourself.

As friends and family swam to cool off from the hot weather in the Kwai Noi river at Kanchanaburi, a 7 year old was caught by the strong current, seeing her three sisters attempt to rescue her. A passing husband and wife DID manage to recover the 7 year old unhurt but sadly the three sisters.. are presumed drowned. Divers and rescue teams worked into the night however as the river has a strong current, it’s likely that they will be found downstream. Twin 18 year olds and their 15 yr old sibling are currently listed as missing.

In Chonburi city, power cuts for quite a large area resulted from a female heavy goods vehicle driver accidentally tipping her trailer while driving along a road. As the tipper rose, it caught power cables and, sparks aside, the power company was left with a major repair job that took a considerable while for power to be resumed.  5 telegraph poles were ripped down in the embarrassing event that saw the driver questioned by police.

In Sri Racha, a 40 year old Chinaman has been charged with fraud after convincing a local 58 year old to INVEST in what was in fact a scam. Seeing an initial return after putting money into the online bitcoin scam site, he of course, invested more.. Then, as usual, it all disappeared. Using facebook to FISH for customers, the Chinaman and his accomplice are believed to have tricked numerous people, yet to be identified but this one case, saw the man LOSE 1.5 Million baht.

As the region saw many St Patrick day events and entertainment areas saw a boost in business, so at Treetown one 58 year old Irishman saw his national day go down with a bang. Witnesses claim he was beaten by security guards at 11.30 in the evening, after closing time of course, and the guards.. well, they claim he ran up a bill and refused to pay, then picked on them first. Medics were called to the scene to treat the man and it is assumed that all EATERIES, which happen to retail alcohol too, will have CCTV to allow police to determine who was at fault.
