    Hi, Apologies for that - some forums seem ok with links but some don't; obviously it's your forum so it's your preference and I'm happy to respect that. If you would like to put the links in, I'm sure it would help readers, but if not, that's fine. Will remember for next time!

    Online Outrage After Woman Offers Ketamine To Five-Year-Old Boy

    And then this Maxim model had to quit after a dodgy video about her advertising an erectile dysfunction pill popped up (so to speak) http://www.pattaya24seven.com/blog/maxim-girl-axed-over-drug-vid/

    Pattaya

    Can't think why a Japanese girl would work in Pattaya when they could earn treble back in their homeland. In terms of non-Thais, there are a number of (pricey) Russian gogos along Walking Street, and one bar half way down that seems to attract African girls. The closest thing to Japanese I can think of is to head to Sriracha (40 min drive) where there are stacks of Japs and a good number of Thai girls who do their best to look Japanese.

    Walking St Crackdown

    Soi Six Looks like the 'crackdown' has started already in some parts... everybody's favourite street, Soi Six, got raided last week Love the idea of letting street performers and face painters take over instead, though there are probably enough clowns here already.

    sex laws in Thailand

    OK, so here’s a question for you: why is it that Thai society generally accepts ladyboys without much fuss, but Thai law offers them few rights or protection? Not being much of an expert on the subject, it just seems odd that while most people tolerate or accept them, when it comes to the law a ladyboy is always going to be a man. Could it be that ladyboys are seen as people to be pitied under Buddha teachings (in the sense that they must have been doing something wrong in a previous life), so they’re not deserving of protection or legal status? Is it still true that gays can’t join the army as they’re deemed to have a ‘mental illness?’ This story on transsexuals and Thai law sums things up pretty well. It just seems funny that in a country renowned for ladyboys, the country’s laws don’t recognise them at all.
  7. Burma is having elections pretty soon. Obviously everyone knows the result already, as nobody there has any choice but to re-elect the same old regime. The Burmese people live in complete poverty while their general live in mansions. And they’re rightly aggrieved. But what about over in Singapore, where the idea of democracy is just as fragile. I found a story here about human rights in Burma and problems in Singapore. Elections in Singapore are just as rigged as those in Burma, with opposition parties effectively gagged, at least according to this report on Singapore security. I understand why Singapore gets away with this, as it’s a political powerhouse in the region, but why is it that you never hear about the problems there? Is it because they’re just as good as keeping bad news from the foreign press as from domestic papers?

    Thai film festival corruption case

    I heard a while ago that the former TAT governor Khun Juthamas was going to be charged for her part in the Thailand film festival corruption case . Is this one of those times where things have gone conveniently quiet or have I missed something? If you don’t know about the case, this charming lady pocketed about 12 million baht in bribes from a US businessman in return for giving him contracts for the film festival. The guy has been jailed over in the US, but Juthamas remains free for now, although the evidence seems pretty overwhelming. Do you reckon there’ll be any great incentive to bring her to book? (I think I remember Thaksin appointed her, so she obviously knows/knew the right people).

    Thai divorce law

    Thai divorce killings Just wondering if anyone had experience of messy divorces in Thailand? I guess any time a couple separates it can be messy but judging by this article it can downright bad for your health. This British guy was in a Thai-foreign marriage and his own wife (or at least her boyfriend) killed him to get rid of him. Which makes me wonder, is it even worth getting a pre-nup if a marriage in Thailand can end like this? I’d like to assume the murder here is the exception to the rule, but is it normal for Thai wives to be so obsessive about cash? (I know it’s a stereotype, but that doesn’t necessarily make it true). I have a friend who is getting married in Thailand soon and he’s a bit concerned about the implications if things do end in divorce, are there are any set rules for who gets what?
