08 Aug 29 - Thailand knows no law

Several days ago, the anti-government coalition had illegally seized the Parliament and blocked the path to several major roads in Bangkok.

2 days ago, the court had ordered a warrant of arrest on the 9 Leaders who are leading the anti-government coalition.
After 2 days of mess, the PAD showed no sign of fear in the court's order, and had ordered the PAD's volunteers to prevent the police from arresting them.

This morning, after having enough patience to deal with the coalition, the police decided to open the road leading to the Parliament by force, injuring a numerous of protesters in the process.

Angered by what the police did, the protester re-occupied the area, they rallied help from their men outside of Bangkok to:
- Block the main road leading to the International Airport of Bangkok, Phuket, Krabi and Had Yai.
- Protest discontinuing their work in the Train Station, thus, leading to a paralyze in various of transportation.



Transport Strangled

The People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) entered the National Broadcasting Service of Thailand (NBT) television station Tuesday, forcing it off the air.The group reportedly entered the back entrance of the station in the early morning and forced all employees to leave as part of their plan to force the Samak Sundaravej government to resign.

08 Aug 24 - Pictures of the Beijing Olympic 2008

Image
I was watching the Closing Ceremony of the Beijing Olympic 2008.
It feels quite sad not to be able to personally be in the Bird's Nest Stadium for the closing ceremony.

Never had much interest in sports before, I wonder when it started to change.

The next Olympic will be held in London, and we're sure to be able to personally participate as a spectator in the stadium.
It'll sure to be a memorable one together with my sweetheart.


As I've posted, I guess I'll still be posting all of these pictures of the Beijing Olympic 2008Opening Ceremony.

Continuation from my first post:





Firecrackers are being fired every time a set of the play are over.









Time for the flag of the People's Republic of China to rise.






Children and vocalist were on choir, cant express how beautiful it was.

(Leaving out any messages because I really dont have time to write anything, and I know due to the length of the post, this will take hours, so let's just skip this for now.)

Hopefully we all enjoyed the Beijing Olympic's Opening Ceremony.



Our Chinese Prime Minister during the introduction
























This is all supposed to be the first 10 minutes of the ceremony.
For the next 3-4 posts of mine should only consist of pictures from the Olympic, I guess.


PS: I drafted this for 4 days before I could continue writing on the post.
I wish I had more time.

Haha, let's say this is just another gift that I received a few days earlier, you dont wanna know what it actually is.

How I wish life is easier, I've been far too busy to do anything now :)

08 Aug 06 - A new 106 Annex!

Image
Just earlier, I found something interesting.
Had always wanted to do this when I'm free, and I glanced upon this!



Another Branch of 106 ANNEX!! Is opening in Thailand!

I've always liked the professional way of the 106 Annex Studio and their creative skills and talents.

Now after browsing through the details, I noticed:


Special Discount!?
Last I remember it's nearly impossible for "106" to offer such a huge 20% discount!

I've really been looking forward for cut, perm and color my hair, and they have just the right offer to do all the 3!

Well according to what I heard from Night, the new branch had these pro and cons.

I've been wanting to publish the photo's that I've taken, but after some request, I decided not to.
To tell the truth, the photo contains only the area of the event of what's left and how much damage it does, but since it's a request from my friend who needs it for his evidence, I cant say much.

Enjoy.

08 Aug 03 - Further infos on the Explosion in Had Yai

(Continued from the earlier's post)

11.25pm
Amidst the chaos, in the car, I received a call that the explosions area had increased from 7 to 8, and the number of injured citizens had increased from 2 to 10.

11.30pm
Another call informed me that 1 of the citizen is seriously injured.

11.50pm
Arrived at the first explosion site in the central area, in front of the Seven Eleven, receiving news that the police had given out order to capture all suspects with the help of the CCTV. Suspects are assumed to be fully prepared with an unregistered Bike to escape from the grasp of the laws.

Had an Ice Tea during the discussion, I also found out (from a military friend) that the situation in Songkhla was now under control, and there was not much casualties in the area as 1 of the 5 bombs in Songkhla was stopped before it was detonated.

It was around a 30minutes discussion before I was asked to return home as the military are going to perform a full duty in the area, and requested all that had nothing…

08 Aug 02 - Bomb in 7 Locations in Had Yai, Songkhla

Just 12 minutes earlier, there's a bomb in 7 locations of the Southern Thailand.
Which includes 2 areas in Had Yai and 5 areas in Songkhla.

There's yet of any news on what actually happened, but I'll keep this updated!
Presently, none are said to be hurt in the explosion, but please contact your families in the area for assurance!

I'd appreciate if any of the tourists are willing to contact me if they have any further infos!

10.50pm :
Reporters had announced that there were only minor damages in the area, and that there are no 'bombs' but what was planted was just Giant Fire Crackers which does not cause much damage to the area.
2 people was injured in the chaos while most of the areas of the event was in front of Seven Eleven and Garbage Bin of Carefour!

What else?
While I've to get to the area for personal investigation, I'm more concerned on the impact on the SET on Monday.

Perhaps, there should be further discussion amongst our group.

Let's just hope that…

08 Aug 01 - Southern Book Fair

Image
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

すごくショックなの。

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




This actually happened several days ago, but I didnt had much time to update.



A friend of mind had informed me that a Southern Book fair is being held in University of Prince Songkhla Nakkarin, and since I visits the area often, I decided to give it a go.




The entrance of the event was pretty crowded, nevertheless, it's filled with important books and documents, but since the University of Prince Songkhla Nakkarin is famous for their medical education standards, I dont wonder why every store in the area had medical related books, ready to be sold in a high quality.



What's good about these events? They discounted nearly all of their books to up to 70%!


The biggest store in the event, and all of their books are in English!

Heck, I spent nearly 2 hours in here just checking what's interesting here …
