Can that be accidentally?
While perusing the March 25 issue (long may it thrive!), I noticed 2
articles on natural gas development in Thailand. Page 4 carried the Chevron
article; page 5 carried the article by the PM and his reference to the “new
gas resources” found in Myanmar. Might there be a connection between
Chevron’s plans to develop a gas field here and PM Samak’s recent
negotiations? He clearly states that Myanmar is a trading partner and we
should “not pick on them”. Does Chevron hold the same position?
Please stick to Songkran rules
Hopefully this will appear in your paper before Songkran, and be read by
some of the thousands of Tourists coming to Chiang Mai. I wish them all,
along with everyone here, a very Happy Songkran. However, please remember
not to squirt water or throw water when the sun goes down. Last year I
nearly came off my bike because some farangs thought it a laugh to squirt
motorcyclists with their waterguns, while safely hidden in the bar, at 9.30
pm. This is not only against the Thai culture - but very dangerous. Water
should be thrown during daylight hours only.
Happy Songkran everyone
