Looking for aliments

Honesty in journalism

Looking for aliments

Dear crew of Chiangmai Mail,
May be you can help me or can forward this question to the readers. I am pretty new in Chiang Mai and despite I love it and already feel at home, my handicap is diabetes. As I know this is an increasing problem in Thailand, as well as overseas and that there are enough doctors who can help and give advice. There is something that probably only people who live here can help me with:

Do you know if there are some shops in Chiang Mai who sell aliments (special food) for people with diabetes? Your answer would be highly appreciated.
Michel,
Sansai
Editorial reply: If you do know of shops, selling special aliments for people with diabetes, please reply to [email protected] chiangmai-mail.com Re: Diabetes and we will forward your suggestion to Michel.


Honesty in journalism

Dear Chiangmai Mail,
I would like to commend you for your honesty in journalism. The article about “the American found dead “ although extremely sad for the families and the reader showed a braveness on your part knowing that the majority of the readers to your newspaper are probably foreigners. As a foreigner, with future ideas of moving to Thailand, one must realize that paradise can be dangerous like everywhere else in the world.

Maybe a course for future journalistic articles might be safeguard procedures for farangs who now make there home in Thailand.

Again, I am impressed in your honesty to print the article instead of ignoring the story as being bad business for tourism.

Sincerely,
Vincent O’Connor
