Watch all on delicious

- 16th Oct. 2011 Rescue workers have reinforced make-shift walls and sand-bags around Bangkok as the city faces an onslaught of floodwater. Thailand has experienced the worst floods in half a century with almost a third of the country now swamped. Over 297 people have been killed and the damage bill is at $3 billion. Now low-lying areas of the capital are at risk of water swells from the Chao Phraya river and a wall of northern run-off water. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has offered reassurance for Bangkok's 12 million people saying the city is well fortified.

Dinner 4-2 - not the usual type

We all look for something special to eat once in a while. When I stayed in Ayudhya province in Thailand this wish almost became too much to bear.

Venturing out daily into surrounding areas I would enjoy local dishes from grilled chicken and Khao Neyou sticky rice, and Papaya Salads. 

After work there was always ample opportunity to savor Thailand's great cuisine. Some of the most impressive moments were spent alongside the deadliest creatures.

One evening, before closing up, I was sitting in my office when I received a call from the main gate to come and join the workers for dinner.

When driving past the main gate, I found a crowd of 10 Thais, from security and Management, personal friends of the Big guy (waving long hair) inviting me to chilly friend Cobra.

It would take some minutes I was told, whilst watching the 2.7 m Cobra being skinned and  gutted. Not the best views to raise one's appetite, but those who engaged in the skillful operation had no such thoughts in mind.

Need less to say, the look of the blood drenched hands of the butchers, the half skinned Naja Naja made me  nauseous I declined politely, yet brought myself to take some everlasting shots, some of which I dare not to show here.

This is our shot of today :

KhaoYai-Toscana and PB Valley

Great place where you can relax in Khao Yai. PB Valley resort, set in between vineyards is a nice place to enjoy meals and a good glass of Thai wine.

AIRASIA - unhappy major style

We flew AIRASIA in Nov 2008 from Macau to Bangkok.
During the demonstrations in Dec 2008 were held up
could not fly out of Thailand.

AIRASIA.COM simply closed their offices, as there were many
angry customers.

From a close Thai friend I know the Managing Director of ThaiAirasia
prefered to spend his time in his resort in Khao Yai.

She even spoke to him asking him who to contact at his offices
in Bangkok.

To no avail. All numbers were not responding, we held on for
hours and hours.

THAI TOURIST ORGANIZATION officials were trying to call.

Airasia's offices had moved, noone was sure where exactly they were located.

Thousands of Baht spent by cab to find them. Again, all proved futile.
Emails were NOT answered, till today no email had been sent.

Although their system allocated an official complaint Nr., we never heard
one word from them.

Our money is stuck with them, our time has been wasted.

After one week left Bangkok on 5th Dec. via land route to China,
thereby occuring substantial additional expenses.

Now we are taking this matter to the web, hoping other passengers
will come forward who faced the same problem with AIRASIA.

This Airline is a junk Airline.

The fact that we were insured for Travel delays, cancellations,
does not have any effect.

Pushed from a Malaysian telephone center back to the
Thai offices of AIRASIA, the rest is known.

Get us our rights, AIRASIA.
