    The"bullet proof" amulet competition will be amusing.

    and of course the crowd favorite...I can survive a head-on crash at 150kmh competition.

    Aren't most of the images used in these amulets of Hindu origin anyway .... with some animist thrown in for balance.


    That's what Pattaya needs ... more quality Buddhist amulets hanging round the necks of more quality tourists.


    Get real .... for Buddha's sake

    And the winner is...




    Mr. Terunwanphut, a fisherman from Trat, seen here proudly modelling his amulet collection.

    Mr. Tee (as he is known to his friends) stated that his favourite was the one that protects him from being hit on the head by falling elm tree branches every other Wednesday.

    He cites the fact that he has never been hit on the head by a falling elm tree branch on any other Wednesday as the proof of its magical powers. Chok dee, Mr. Tee!
