Thailand & Pattaya News, from Fabulous 103fm (18 May 2022)

As relationships improve between Thailand and Saudi Arabia, some 200K well paid manual labour jobs are expected to be offered to locals here who are willing to travel to the desert nation. As working partnerships between the two countries warm up again, following decades of fallout, it’s expected that both countries will benefit from new trade, and other deals and a Saudi ambassador to Thailand is expected to be announced within 4-5 months.

The US Defence Secretary will be IN Thailand next month, and is expected to meet with the Thai PM at some stage. A whistle stop tout maybe but there is a good chance that he will get to visit the new US CONSULATE in Chiang mai too, recently under construction and ally locals fear that it is planned to be used by undercover operatives alongside those who carry out normal consular activities. Earlier the US Embassy was forced to deny claims that the rather large compound would house anything more than paper pushers and under no circumstances CIA.

In Petchaburi a 26 year old has confessed to the murder of a 70 year old woman after being caught by other members of her family stealing the older ladies money. Her own grandmother accused her of stealing from her friend, which, according to the killer, put her in a frenzy, and drove her to kill the other lady, perhaps in the hope of hiding her crime. She had tried to disguise the killing to make it look as if the women’s home had been burgled. Police investigated and interviewed neighbours and established the real cause of death.

In our own region, reports of two injured workers reached emergency services in Sriracha yesterday BUT it took close to 2 hours to rescue them. NOT because of dense traffic OR a lack of manpower BUT because they had fallen from a small tower onto a gymnasium roof and an emergency so-called bucket lift was unavailable. With no other way to get the men down, neither having life threatening injuries, they were kept up, in the sun, for 2 hours until the right type of vehicle arrived to lift them down to safety.

Locally, markets are thriving as more and more previous supermarket shoppers return to the open air stalls. Not, perhaps the fault of the stores themselves but in many cases customers have complained that for whatever reason, on several occasions, they have bought pre packed fruit or veg from supermarkets only to find that below the top layer, some are soft and aging. Markets of course display their wares and encourage customers to pick what they want and even eateries are said to be returning to the old days of sending staff out to “buy fresh”.
