Young reader pleas for return of Myna bird

Young reader pleas for return of Myna bird

My Myna pet bird has been with me for the past 2 years. His name is Chin Chang and can speak very well. On July 16th at 11.30 in the morning he flew away from my home in Suan Nonsee Housing Estate, near the Ruamchoke market and has a string tied around its leg. I call for him everyday, but have not found him yet. I have put up signs on posts and in the neighboring housing estates, but no one has contacted me.
I miss him very much and want him to come back home to me again. He does not know how to look for food, because I have fed him since he was 7 days old.
If anyone finds him or even if someone has put him up for sale, please call my mother on Tel. 0818812990. I sincerely thank everyone for helping me. I miss him so much.
Sincerely,
Midori

 

Plain and simple

I’ve just read the story about hotel occupancy rates dropping in Chiangmai.
It’s plain and simple. You can not promote Chiangmai as a high end tourist destination when the place is in such a mess and the pollution is so bad. I lived there for 3 years and left because nothing gets done there about the extreme pollution and the bad roads. Who wants to come to Chiangmai and put up wit this when we can go elsewhere in Thailand and not have to suck in bad air, put up with far too many smoking diesel powered vehicles, red taxi trucks and bad driving by the locals?
I will not come back to Chiangmai to live and nor will I recommend anyone I know go there. Last year I’ve never been so sick in all my life as I was living there. All my friends are leaving or already left for the same reasons.

Enough with the plastic bags

Dear Editor,
Everyday in Thailand I am given so many plastic bags by every store for things I don’t even need a bag for. Multiply me by 50 million people imagine the waste of the earth’s resources.
All the 7-11’s I visit give plastic bags for even a bottle of water… and there is not even a bin outside the shops. Please help make people more aware of the environment and the senseless waste of resources. Thailand is such an amazing place and I’m sure that a government initiative would work very fast to limit the waste.
Thanks very much,
