09 April 30 - Midnight Songkran Party 09

Image
Look at the crowd and spectators in the area! Malaysian, Singaporean, Indonesian and the Thais had blended into a single race, they dont communicate by language, instead, they communicate using their Water Guns.



It's hard to even step out of the Hotel properly, the place was just too crowded!

Around 10pm, we continued the water war into the Center of the stage, just in front of the Lee Garden and the Novotel.



The Hat Yai Municipal had arranged for unlimited water supply and various of 'war' zones for the festivals.



By the time we reached the area, everyone was wet, and I was partially 'wet', thanks to the consideration of the people there. They were shooting at my back instead of the front to avoid damaging my camera.




We moved out of the Lee Garden area to the Sai Soong area under my recommendation. It's normal for the Songkran Festival to have a Boxing matches every now and then, and we had hoped for this opportunity too.



The main stage lies further, where the old, …

09 April 28 - Songkran Water Festival 2009

Image
After a long day of hard work, finally...
Work's over.. Ignoring all the mess and tiredness...



5 of my friends came from Malaysia on the 11th, and we promised to have a full party tonight.

Obviously, it would be inappropriate to join the party wearing my work clothes, the easy solution was to, of course, to bring the entire shower set and clothes to Siew Lynn's room and take a shower there.

If you're wondering, it's something like this~


A different design though, so no sweat.

So yeah, back to the Water War Festival.
The entire Lee Garden area's a huge combat field, I had to leave my bag, cellphone and all electrical stuff (other than my IXUS) in the hotel.


Can you imagine what kind of mess are there?
Everywhere, every random people will shoot their water guns at you regardless of who you are.


(Brr, dont forget the water's cold too)

Not forgetting the traditional way of Thanking the Mother of Water who are providing us with sufficient water supply everyday. Though I have n…

Chrysler’s Peapod: 2 cents per mile plus a smile
A green car that made the Earth smile, and no more petrol problem.Though it's slow, reasonable enough.

Due to the unstable politic, I noticed that all I blogged was about the mob and what the government did.

We skip that, and flashes back to the 12th, during the Thailand Songkran Festival, or also known as the Thailand Water Festival.

So to say, Hat Yai was so full of these Indonesia, Malaysian and Singaporean tourists. As an example, here's condition of the area where I work at during a normal season.

Normal Situation:

A few cars but with a steady flow all the time.

To compare with, this is how the traffic is during the Songkran Festival.



Wasnt too bad by the time I took this, but trust me, it's much more crowded.


So what have I been doing for the whole daytime?
I guess it's s…

It was a habit for me to watch the news while having my breakfast, and I was surprised when I heard of this while I was having my breakfast..

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

Sondhi Limthongkul is in serious condition


BANGKOK: -- Sondhi Limthongkul is in serious condition after being shot as a bullet hit his left skull. The bullet is still in his skull, causing bleeding inside his brain, Vajira Hospital Director Dr Chaiwun Charoenchoktavee said Friday.

Doctors are conducting an urgent operation on Sondhi and the operation is expected to finish around noon.

I hate using proxys..

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



Mike and Jawaran wasnt the only one who requested me to upload the Resident Evil 5's Official Soundtrack.



One word, I'm too lazy to upload it considering how slow my internet speed is.

I once posted about Niang's heavenic voice which seduced your soul to freedom and it was really something that calms your soul after a long battle against Wesker (Considering Phloy and me was clueless at what to do to him.)

09 April 17 - Red Shirt Summary

Image
Ever since the 12th, there were huge political changes in Thailand.
I was too busy with Songkran, both work and personal celebration.

I'll summarize what happened in Thailand, as well as revealing the 'undisclosed' pictures that was never been aired in Thailand.

Breaking News: State of emergency declared; ASEAN Summit collapses

Breaking News: State of emergency declared for Bangkok

Breaking News: Tanks, troops mobilsed in Bangkok





These happened in the morning when the military mobilized their tanks, I dont understand what's with the soldiers celebrating together with the protesters.

These pictures below happened on the evening, when the military launches a full scale dispersion.
Government claims that there werent any death, and they're doing it as 'gentle' as they can.

09 Apr 11 - ASEAN Summit Cancelled

Image
ASEAN Summit cancelled after protest! <-- News from EarthTimes.
Held in Royal Cliff Beach Resort.



Following the occupation of the main road a few days ago in Bangkok, Red Shirt leaders had announced for their men to relocate to Pattaya, and stop the Prime Minister Aphisit from holding the ASEAN Summit.




It doesnt take long before the policemen were unable to hold them back, considering, it was said that most of the policemen were unaesthetic at stopping the demonstrator.



I dont know how true it is, but the red shirt claimed to have been attacked by a 'bomb' and gunmen on their way to the Pattaya Hotel to stop the ASEAN Summit from happening.

This topic was used by the leaders to enraged their men and causes more rampage.



Within a few hours the whole Hotel was occupied with Red Shirts.




Just take a look at this, what a disgrace to the Kingdom!
Water Festival is on the next day after the Summit, and the timing was precise, once the ASEAN Summit is over, the leaders were able to tak…

09 April 10 - Little Queen's broken

Royal Cliff Beach ResortI feel guilty now, Red Queen's days were wasted.

I just want her to be open enough and tell me that she needs my help, but she keep saying that I'm the one who needs help. Whether she's putting a mask for her psychology project or not, but I cant help to doubt her words when I hardly knows her.

Hey I'm here to help her with her project isnt it?

She obviously took the effort to convince me that she's helping me before she screamed on the phone and hang up.

Sigh~ Now I feel guilty, she gotta start all over again with her project.

Trying to implant the thought of science comes from God, and calculation, absolute precise calculation and the like, isnt scientific at all. Plus it's impossible to trust her when she 'lied' to me during the 6 hours treatment.

1 Hour after the 'fight.'

A friend told me when I discussed this with me.

"A psychologist needs to convince patient that they need help! Most patients dont think …

09 Apr 10 - She was raped, yet no one helps

Image
They saw her being assaulted, and raped, but none were to put anymore effort to help. They just pressed the button to call the police, and the police arrived in 10 minutes..
She was raped twice, before the police arrived.



Duty first? Or to save someone from getting raped?
She cried rape — and no one helped (Woman attacked on subway platform as workers looked on) <-- In the news!


I understand how the Western Community works, but still, humanity first? or duty? or self prestige? You tell me.

09 April 09 - Thaksin Supporter "Red Shirt" Protest

Image
Last year, there was a very long demonstration by the anti-Thaksin mob, wearing "Yellow" as their symbol of loyalty to the King.

At 4pm, there was news from a close friend who is in Bangkok, telling me to watch the ThaiPBS.

There's also news of it from the internet.

I'm not in Bangkok at the moment, but I do remember the pain of the traffic jam there, now if the Red Shirt are closing the main roads... God knows, you'll be stuck there till the Red Shirt opens the road.

There's a few pictures of the Thaksin lover, all taken from various of source.



Whether it's Thaksin's loyalist.

09 April 08 - Need Help Defense Psychology

I'm disturbed..
An effort to help "Little Queen" in her psychology project.
"Little Queen" had influenced me.. and when I think I'm immune to this kind of thing.

I graduated bio and chemist, yet her logic (which she invented) penetrates through my logic.

15 days, 2 hours per day, eyes to eyes....
Need psychology defense help.

09 April 05 - One More Soul To The Call

Another very nice song that I heard while my brother was playing the game, maybe I'll try it when I have the time, but for now, work really is taking all of my time.

I like most of McGlynn's song, and this one really blew it if you're onto some horror story.
Do listen to it and comment up!




Title: One More Soul To The Call
Artist: Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (also credited as Melissa Williamson)
From: Silent Hill : Homecoming

Lyrics from : Devilsknight from Silent Hill Heaven

Enought with lies. Tell me one more time ...
My blood, your lie. Is this you, inside ?

Death through the living reframed as no living heart
In the order of life, they know you there
As you *** your plan, of real shoot in the dark
Came a little to late, it's over

Darling... The children, upsetion and dying
Silence and screaming

Damage done to the flesh, what they said in the name of love
Damage done to the heart, is the start of the end
Damage done to my soul, I know, you ****
Damage down to my life, pressing out at a cha…

09 April 03 - How to watch videos on Nintendo DS

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

Considering that there are 2 laptops in the medical office.
A few people who was consulting for medical advise from me always wondered what the "mini-laptop" on my table is (Black DS really looks like an "ultra-mini-laptop" from non-DS views). And what's that sound coming out from it.
Most usually takes a peek and some would ask about it..

At another point of view, I'm surprised how many DS owners I know were oblivious that the DS can be used as a video player. So this post, is for all of us out there.

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

Even with the lazy beary bear are bearing the bearish bear market, we all deserve to take a break even while on work.

Even with a Nintendo DS, it's boring if the only thing you can do with it is playing the games in it. Sometimes, I'd just wanna do my work without wasting my cellphone's battery …
