VERY LATEST NEWS FROM THAILAND in English (19 December 2023) from Fabulous 103fm Pattaya
DISCOVER PATTAYA NEWS with Fabulous 103fm

– Fabulous 103fm back on air after long cut-offs 
Yesterday was, sadly, an abject failure for listeners on Fabulous 103.  What was expected to take one to two hours, took 12, and we apologize for the quality of output and cut offs at times.  We do expect a few more, much shorter between now and new year as antenna inspections take place.  That, though, will not affect our online radio.

– 12 arrested for Bangkok shootings
Twelve teenagers have been arrested in the capital, suspected as being involved in the student on student shooting last month that saw rivals for different tech colleges going up against each other and in addition to the death of one, the death of a teacher who happened to be in the vicinity and using an ATM machine at the time.    It’s been established that the attackers were a part of a multi province group of gangsters, well organized and vicious.   During yesterday’s raids, several weapons were seized along with college t-shirts from different tech schools.  The three main suspects, known to police as the gunman, a getaway bike rider and another, remain at large.

– Teen steals 700k baht from teacher to buy iPhones for classmates
A Thai teacher has a lot to learn, it seems, as she accumulated money, 700 K baht, but kept it in her home and not the bank.  Now appealing for help in a case where a neighbouring 14 year old girl is alleged to have stolen the cash and given a lot of it away, police have a report but she hasn’t received any of her cash back.  Seems the teen bought numerous new iPhones in an attempt to garner friends, reality? She is a thief but MISS will certainly have learned a lesson too.

– Smog clears in Thailand 
Smog haze has lessened nationally, according to reports, but reality is that it remains and despite the cooler weather blanketed much of the capital and other reigns this morning,  stores are reporting a rush on air filtering units, cheaply available for homes and all are advised to regularly remove the filters in air conditioning and clean them to prevent continued contamination.  Opening the front of most AC units, two plastic framed filters are directly in front of you, they slide out and can be cleaned in a shower before drying and putting back.  Big saving on electricity too as a cleaner unit doesn’t have to struggle as much to cool your rooms.

– Computer geek arrested for AI photos of celebrities
A Thai computer geek has been arrested following complaints by members of the public that he was using AI to put the faces of famous people, particularly women, onto less than discreet photographs.  In  an online group to garner business, he simply used programming easily available on the internet.  Designed for fun, the software though, doesn’t discriminate.  He faces serious fines in court as many of the complainants are publicly known.

–  Pattaya’s never-ending roadworks cause city chaos
Anyone driving through the city will notice the continued and often repeated road works and congestion despite promises that it would be completed and despite the high season being upon us.  For many, a short journey has become a long one and chaos reigns on the Sukhumvit where many major exits after South Pattaya are blocked off. Seems like contractors never manage to finish what they started, as our studios remain fronted by abandoned road works and pavement building too.

– Pattaya Mayor reviews ‘crazy’ Beach Road footpaths 
And the City Mayor visited beach road this week to see for himself the mess made by creative pavers, who have planted trees along the pedestrian pathways, taking up most of the width and actually blocking the footpath, making it impossible for wheelchair users to use them, and others needing to walk in single file and, literally play pedestrian checkers.  He promises to get it all put right, meanwhile take extra care as many have reported tripping on the whacky design.

– Soi Bua Khao remains a two-way street… for now
Reports that Soi Buakhao would become a one way street have not been exaggerated.. just delayed, according to city planners.  We shouldn’t expect changes prior to the new year though as they want to test the idea and make sure its an improvement.  Currently, another Pattaya slug speed drive, the soi has become much busier in recent years and so changes, we are told, need to be made.

– Which areas of Jomtien & Naklua will see later opening hours for bars?
Which areas of Jomtien and Naklua will be added to the so-called entertainment areas in the region?  That’s not been decided yet but with the late opening now in much of the city, decisions are being planned to update the somewhat ancient listing and may well include some parts of the east side too.

– Christmas deals in Pattaya 
And as Xmas is close, our recent guide on where to go, and eat on the big day is available on your website, Book now, or face disappointment, as many venues are reporting sold out already.
