Over the New Year I found time to read your newspaper
from first to last page and I would like to give you some comments.
First of all congratulations for informing us about what
is going on. It was about time that someone came up with a decent paper for
residents and tell us what will happen and what happened in Chiang Mai.
What I like very much is the ‘Dining Out’ section,
the style and twisted tongue sometimes. And thanks to your suggestion we
have tried two of the recommended restaurants already (By Nobody and Chez
John). You were right both times. Worth the money and excellent cuisine.
I don’t particularly care for the ‘wine articles’.
They have nothing to do with Chiang Mai and if you think it is necessary
than it should be something written by a hotelier from Chiang Mai and not a
hotelier from Pattaya. No offense against Pattaya, but this is the North!
Maybe you can find a volunteer from the many hoteliers in the area.
What I liked very much in issue No 10 was the
entertainment section about the show, which will open on January 9 at the
Art Museum. I hope you will supply us with an update again and loads of the
quality pictures I am getting used to.
One more thing. Please cut down on ‘Auto Mania’. I
can never afford this kind of stuff. Rather give information where I can get
a decent car repair shop or who sells used cars without ripping you off.
But all in all - I love your newspaper and look forward
to every Saturday. The lady at my newsstand is automatically keeping one for
me by now. Happy New Year 2003 to you and your reporters. Keep it up! Chiang
Mai needed you.
