The local advertisement leaflet was delivered to my door today. As usual its content contains trivial information. I have never paid attention to it until today when somebody at home showed me one advertisement. The title grabbed my attention straight away, i. e. “Adult Services”. The lines following provided more details about who will deliver these services: “Thai lady offering adult services. In calls and out calls available. I am available from Monday to Saturday between 12 Midday to late. Please call to find out more …”. I won’t reveal the telephone number here. The final line is “withheld numbers and texts will not be answered.”
I did not expect to see this kind of advertisement from a Thai person in this country. I guess this person just wants to go back to her roots and do what she normally does best. I think the lady who provides these “adult services” could be a hit. It depends on what kinds of services she offers to her customers. Her talents might well be sought after by people in this town. I suspect that the majority of her potential customers would be men. I am tempted to give her a call to say “Sawasdee krap” and find out what she really means by ‘adult services’. I would also like to ask her if she provides any extra services as well. What she does might turn out to be just a massage or simply releasing the tension in her customers’ bones. It is good to know that not only did she come to live in the same town as me, she also brought with her the skills to satisfy the locals. They will be very impressed.

“BNP to consider non-white members“, according to the BBC.
I find it very hard to comprehend their way of thinking. Even in this day and age, there are, apparently, still characters like these who do not accept people from different races in their society. What is the matter with them? Do they genuinely think people from different ethnicities are inferior beings? If that is the case, it is not dissimilar to Nazism then? I suppose these Stone Age beings are never going to be worried about how people label them or what people accuse them of. Then again, bigotry and hatred exist in every nook and cranny of this world.
I briefly saw a report on the Sky News channel about a pregnant British woman who has been sentenced to death in south east Asia for drugs smuggling. I did not know which country this woman was to be executed in. I thought it was Thailand, so I decided to check out the full details on the website. But it is not Thailand.
According to the news, this story is happening in Laos. I reiterate: the case is taking place in Laos, not in Thailand. There has been a campaign to save her and her baby from being shot by firing squad. However, that is not what I am discussing in this topic. The thing I want to say is that some of the Brits who commented on the story do not even know that Thailand and Laos are totally different countries. One person even called on people in Britain to boycott Thailand if this woman is executed! And I want to know why exactly people should boycott Thailand? What has this frigging incident got to do with Thailand? If the person who posted that comment requested a boycott against ignorance, I would definitely join the campaign, given their stupidity.

What a lovely day again today. It is pleasantly warm. People have been mowing the lawn, going out to do some minor business and others have been sitting at the back of their houses enjoying the warmth. Even as I am writing right now, I can hear the birds chirping. It is a beautiful day.
I was not going to write anything today but there was some small hiccup disrupting my daily schedule. Hence, I had to replace one activity with another. It was not a big deal. In a good way, it allowed me to do some other useful things i.e. reading my text book and writing a blog about the weather to shape up my writing skill.
According to the news, the coming summer in the UK is predicted to be warmer than usual. It will be a long season of barbecues and I am bound to smell a lot of cooking meat, sausages, vegetables and so on. Doesn’t it sound great? I hope the weather forecast by the Met. Office is correct.
Yesterday was not too bad, despite having to put up with things that I do not normally do. To me, this time of the year is usually tedious. Thank goodness Christmas does not happen every day. On the other hand, I quite understand that, to many people who have been busy all year, this season is a good time for them to have the opportunity to rest from their banal daily lives and spend time with their own families, irrespective of whether you want to see them or not. Personally, I do not mind at all but I would not wish to do something like this every day. It is just nothing to write home about, though not quite as dull as ditchwater! Soon, the day will be over and tomorrow I will be able to return to my usual routine. I only wish that the day would past a little more quickly. Sigh…
This morning when I woke up, straight away I was assaulted by the memory of that disastrous boxing day when the Asian tsunami hit Thailand and other countries in the region. I remember very well that on that day, I was emotionally engaged in this horrible event even though no one I know got caught up in it. I was genuinely and deeply upset by the tragedy. I can only hope that a devastating event like this will never happen again in the future.
Lately I have not been very busy doing anything; as a matter of fact, I have never done anything at all for other people. Thankfully, Christmas is arriving this week and it gives me the opportunity to put this right, albeit in a small way. At least, I am pleased with my good gesture.
I finished Christmas shopping, buying gifts for people, a couple of weeks ago. Today, I have just finished writing all the cards that I am going to give to people I know well and to others whom I do not know quite so well. It is a thing that the native people do here, so it will be a good idea for me to play along. Actually, I think Christmas is a good season, when families get together and are happy, despite having to put up with your own people! It is times like this that make me think about my own family and the people that I left behind.
I was not born a Christian. In fact, my parents are Buddhist, consequently, religiously speaking, I am supposed to be like them. But I am not a religious being. Thus I am free to appreciate other people’s way of life and their traditions. And my folks never minded other people’s beliefs either. When I was a kid, they even let me have a great time at the local Christian school on Christmas night, as long as I behaved and respected the place. There are some differences between my childhood Christmas and the proper western style Christmas. Then, I was not aware of the significance of this tradition. I simply went and just enjoyed the many entertaining things provided by the school on Christmas night such as games and a funfair. Nowadays, I have come to realise that instead of just taking, I should give people something as well; cards and presents on this special day even though it is only a small thing that I can do for them. I do not mind at all.
“A MALE escort told a court yesterday how Boy George handcuffed him and chained him to a bedroom wall after a drug-fuelled erotic photo session at the pop star’s home.” according to the Daily Express.
I know that I should not laugh at the misery of this rent boy. But the story is just amusing and who knows whether or not the guy was really into this sexual, bizarre game. If the dude did not agree to take part in this kind of session, I must apologise profusely for being amused at the news. Reading about this story just reminds me of the many stories of other well-known people whose behind the scenes antics were discovered e.g. George Michael convicted of a lewd act in a Los Angele public toilet or the story of Mark Oaten, a married man and a former contender for the Liberal Democrat leadership, who quit his job after being confronted with allegations of a gay affair with a male escort. In the case of Boy George and the Norwegian bisexual rent boy, this might have been just an incident of sadomasochism that went wrong. It is hilarious to read this kind of thing on the news and it clearly illustrates that people are ready to try anything sexually. Though they have to make sure that whatever they do with their buddies is not going to go against their consent, otherwise they could end up in court like the former lead singer of the Culture Club. There’s nowt so queer as folk! 🙂
