 Travel tourism

Thai tourists return to Nong khai and holiday destinations on long weekend

Temples and attractions in the northeastern Nong Khai province have started to welcome visitors arriving for the long weekend.

The special 4-day weekend has started, with natural tourism attractions across the country filling up with visitors coming to enjoy fresh air and cool breezes.


Khun Ocha's Cookbook

Prawns with bean sprouts

This was an original Chinese dish from Peking, so there’s more than just the duck; however, over the years has been progressively refined, to make it more of a western item these days. It is very flavorsome - just don’t overdo the tomato ketchup!

 Coins of the Realm

1000 BAHT 1949-1952 (Part 1)

In 1946 the Thai Government tried to place an order with Thomas de la Rue & Company Limited London (TdlR), but unfortunately they were unable to receive the order as their works on Bunhill Row had been bombed during WWII.


Doctor's Consultation

Work is the curse of the drinking classes

It was way back in the 1700’s that a Dr Bernardino Ramazzini (1633 - 1714), an Italian physician published a book on occupational diseases, “De Morbis Artificum Diatriba (Diseases of Workers)”. That makes him, in my eyes, the father of modern Occupational Medicine.



Photography for Retirees

Getting older has some down sides, I think everyone would agree, but to make the twilight years more fun is most important. That is what keeps you young. After all, look at Grandma Moses, who in her 70’s took up painting and became a world celebrity. You can do the same with photography, and you don’t have to wash out the brushes afterwards!


Classical Connections     Wine World

Music at the Movies

Richard Wagner.

Chatting with a friend over coffee recently, we were reminding ourselves about famous movies that used classical music for their sound tracks. Driving back home, I began to realize that a classical music soundtrack is not such a novel idea as I first imagined. The concept goes back to the earliest days of cinema. I read somewhere that music was originally played during silent films not for any artistic purpose, but was merely intended as a distraction from the continuous clatter of the projector.


Sweet Talk

Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre.

I was in Hungary at the time - Budapest to be exact - staying at a cheap lodging in a rather run-down part of town. It was here, one evening that I had my first taste of classic sweet wine. It was Hungarian Tokay Asz˙, the world-famous and somewhat mystical golden wine known throughout the English-speaking world as Tokay (tock-eye).



Heart to Heart  

Partners are not maids

Dear Hillary,

These women here are strange creatures. Hot as hell one day and damn icebergs the next and I have absolutely no idea what brings it on. Had a couple of live-ins and I’ve had to give them both the door. Is there some way of finding out what these girls are like before you get too far into the relationship? It doesn’t seem to matter how much salary you pay them, if they get in a snit, that’s it.
