    Who was this Roy Krathong and why do the Thais celebrate his birthday?

    it starts off the feeding of the Monks, now its feast or famine for theses poor bastards, as they only get a good feed on auspicious occasions. Most days they have to exist on left over scraps from the old hags that will give on a daily basis because they think thier time is near and they don't wanna come back as Strollers dog. But on Days like today they need a pickup truck to get all the stuff back home to the monkery. So every body lines up to offer Food, drinks and money. They did well today, you can tell because the following hanger ons and trail of accompanying dogs increases as the proportion of the expected takings. Photos of sexy girls in shiny clothes will follow later, thats providing I don't too pissed in the interim period.

    I never saw Loy Ratong in Pattaya but I did once see a long katoey.

    I was supposed to be celebrating LK with Blake and Butt in Nana but I am all snuffed up with this air con hayfever so I guess it's off to the lake with Sandra.

    Yep a local DJ leapt off the roof of a local restaurant boat into the klong and drowned. Seems his loved one had other plans. It's only a small boat so I wouldn't advise drinking the klong water.
