Alcohol free zones for Loy Krathong

Dear Editor

What a relief to see the alcohol free signs around the city, calling for a safe Loy Krathong. It seems as though the rockets were less in number and smaller than in previous years as well. Here’s hoping that we also have a noticeable drop in the death rate due to drunk driving accidents.

Loy Krathong is such a beautiful event, its awful seeing it marred by drunks and even worse, obnoxious drunks with potentially lethal fireworks. I saw some drunk foreigners gleefully shooting off fireworks at lanterns and a few drunk looking Thais hopping on their motorbikes and speeding down the road through the crowds. So any crackdown in that direction is most welcome.

Consider me not a fuddy duddy, just cautious,

Yours
Loy Krathong lover

 

Noise in the night

Dear Editor

Whilst I understand that Loy Krathong is all about fireworks and after a few years here in Chiang Mai I have learned to live with it, what I do find difficult to tolerate are those people who feel the need to broadcast their “singing” to the rest of the neighborhood on a quiet night. Until 1 a.m. I understand the neighbors will not be complaining for fear of making trouble with someone they must see every day, and neither do I plan on doing so. But, it doesn’t make it any less tolerable or any less inconsiderate on the part of my neighbor, for that matter.

Noise does not seem to be one of those things that bother Thai people very much and for that, they are very lucky. Unfortunately for me, it is one of those things that keeps me awake until 1 a.m. and makes me want to break out the boom box blasting out rap in front of my neighbor’s house on 6 a.m. after a night on the karaoke machine.

Alas, that won’t be happening either, but at least I have the satisfaction of having a good complain about it here!

Regards
Sleepless in Chiang Mai


Found a camera

Dear Editor

I am hoping the family who lost a Panasonic Lumix camera on 16th November will read this! The camera is an Fx7 in black - and programmed in French. It was found on Ratchadamnoen Rd. Chiang Mai in the evening, and has clearly been used on a holiday to Singapore, Angkor Wat as well as Chiang Mai.

The owner can contact me through the editor at [email protected] Please e mail me a photo of family members to enable correct identification and I will arrange safe return of the camera as soon as possible.
