Get the Phuket ‘Governor’s eggs’ and watch 'talented' ladyboys

Phuket Governor Tri Augkaradacha (right) enjoys passing off his ‘eggs’ at 1.5 baht each, as Rungroj Songsanant, chief of the Phuket Co-operatives Office, enjoys the joke.

PHUKET: Fairgoers will be able to get their hands on the “Governor’s eggs” at only 1.50 baht each and enjoy a “Miss Ladyboy Got Talent” show at this year’s Phuket OTOP (One Tambon, One Product) fair, which kicks off at Saphan Hin on Friday.

Phuket Governor Tri Augkaradacha revealed the fair’s theme “Phuket Governor’s eggs – 1.50 baht each” at Phuket Provincial Hall today.

Enjoying the joke, the governor was all smiles at the conference, as the Thai word for eggs (kai) is often used as slang for “testicles”.

“Eggs at local Phuket markets cost 3.80 to 4 baht each. We have size 1 and size 2 eggs [the largest two sizes available] for sale at ‘lucky times’ throughout the day,” explained Rungroj Songsanant, chief of the Phuket Provincial Co-operatives Office, which is organizing the fair.

“Sales will be limited to 10 eggs per person, with only 2,000 lucky eggs for sale per day,” he added.

Although the fair will start on Friday, the opening ceremony will be held on Monday, with Gov Tri presiding over the festivities.

“To mark the occasion, the limit will be raised to 20 lucky eggs per person for the day,” Mr Rungroj added.

Yet all eyes are on the “Miss Ladyboy Got Talent” quest as one of the main highlights of the fair.

“Up to 30 contestants will be in the contest, which will start at 7pm on May 18, with the final round on May 22,” Mr Rungroj said.

Premium jasmine rice from Thailand’s Thung Kula Rong Hai district in the country’s northeast will be available at only 180 baht per five-kilogram pack. “This will also bring in more people to the show,” he added.

This year’s OTOP Fair, the sixth to be held in Phuket, will run 10 days, ending on May 22.

“The Phuket Provincial Office is spending 2,176,400 baht on staging OTOP fairs this year – two in other provinces and this one here in Phuket,” said Governor Tri.

“The sales revenue target for this fiscal year [October 1, 2010 through September 30, 2011] is 900 million baht.

“So far, sales volume from October 1 to April 30 is 539 million baht,” he added.
