Thai Army Intercept Drug Smugglers

Monday, January 28th, 2019



CHIANG RAI – On January 28th, a Thai Army Task Force intercepted a pickup truck in Chiang Rai’s Chiang Saen region in the far north of Thailand.

While the Thai Task Force chased the drug suspects, their pickup crashed and a shootout entailed. As the drug smugglers attempted to flee, one of them was shot and killed.

Due to their swift actions, the Thai soldiers were able to seize around 2.85 million methamphetamine pills.

It is fair to say that the street value would have been enormous.

Bangkok’s smog problem is being blamed on ‘dirty fuel’ consumption by diesel buses and other vehicles.

The roads in the Big Mango are overrun with vehicles that bellow out tons of gas fumes like angry dragons. 

So far, apart from a futile attempt to spray water into the air, little has been done to solve the ongoing problem.

Crime Of Passion

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned

Alas, yet more tragedy in Thailand. This time a Thai woman has gunned down her husband and murdered his mistress.  

The incident happened at Lampang in North Thailand. Following the shooting, the mafia-style assassin sat down, casually sipped on a beer, whilst waiting for the Thai Police to arrive.  

Below is a poem I wrote today regarding this incident…


You broke her heart so expect revenge, 

Whatever you do there’ll be no amends, 

The hatred is born and becomes ferocious,

She gunned you down like the Mafiosos,

Your betrayal led to her seething fury,                                                    

The devil became your judge and jury. © 2019

Monks Behaving Badly

Saturday, November 24th, 2018

While alcohol-induced violence is certainly nothing new to Thailand, this particular news report is very different.

Two Thai monks were sent to the hospital following a violent clash with each other. Following a drinking session, tempers exploded over a disagreement, which involved one monk attacking the other with a knife. Knife wounds were incurred by both monks. 

The Royal Thai Police are waiting for both monks to recover from their injuries, before asking the Wat’s Abbot to defrock the pair. The request from the Thai Police is because they may face legal charges.

Below is the news report by The Thaiger…
