    Time to Stock Up

    In light of the imminent event, there's probably a fairly good chance of a ban on drinking so that we can all mourn properly and as such, drinkers (in Thailand) might be advised to stock up.

    On a related note, กูต้องได้ 100 ล้าน is a good source of (Thai-language) gossip.

    ^ The event is not necessarily the event. The event is the acknowledgment of the event.

    I would advise anyone requiring government services (Immigration etc) toget it done asap, as well as any banking other than routine ATM/on line transactions.

    ^ Yes, it is. Unfortunately, my extension is due in two weeks so that might well turn out to be epically bad timing.

    Govt spokesman: PM will give no news conference today

    12 Oct 2016 | 16:45 |

    BANGKOK, 12 October 2016 (NNT) -
    Government Spokesman Lt. Gen. Sansern Kaeokamnerd has said Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has cancelled his trip in Chonburi to have an audience His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn.

    He confirmed there will be no news conference as rumored.

    The spokesman said the PM was preparing to have an audience with His Royal Highness in case he had to give a report on the government’s work.
    Gen. Prayut had assigned Deputy PM Somkid Chatusripitak to act for him in Chonburi, said the spokesman.

    The PM had not been scheduled to give any news conference on Wednesday, the spokesman confirmed. He also asked the public not to pay attention to or panic over the rumors in the social media and suggested that they rely on news from official sources.

    Yeah the C word I heard, and there ain't a doc in all of the land that would have the balls to declare anything or pull any plugs. And from past stories I've heard you can keep vegetables fresh for years if you keep the fridge running.

    Given we're coming up to high season and the cash flow is about to start looking healthier then I'd say the Junta would rather keep Elvis on ice till Jan/Feb.

    True, but, in addition ... the SET is down (today) 2 1/2%

    Bought some shares only 2 weeks ago.

    One week ago we were up 40K

    A few days later, now down 60K

    The BBC 'confirmed' it on their website earlier. It's since been taken down.
