Beauty Pageant Takes Place In Front Of Empty Arena Due To Covid-19 Restrictions

This is the bizarre moment a beauty pageant was held without any audience due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Only the judges and some reporters were allowed to attend the 2021 Miss Chiang Mai pageant held last week.

Chairs were placed for hundreds of guests but were left empty as authorities fear the spreading of coronavirus.

The glamorous contestants answered questions and gave speeches to an almost deserted hall devoid of the usual cheering.

Even though there were no crowds, the event went live on Facebook so that people could still vote for their favourites.

At the end of the event, 22-year-old Pharmacy graduate Chonnikarn Pityaporn was crowned Miss Chiang Mai.

She said: ‘It’s still a special day for me even though there were no friends or family here to enjoy the moment with me.’

Drone Footage Shows Field Hospital Being Built In Samut Sakhon

Aerial footage shows a sprawling field hospital being built in Samut Sakhon province to cope with the recent rise in Covid-19 cases.

The 600 square metre facility, which can hold up to 1,000 patients, is being constructed in Samut Sakhon where the outbreak began among migrant workers in December.

Soldiers from the neighbouring province of Ratchaburi have been stationed near the site to co-ordinate the efforts.

Drone footage recorded on January 14 shows the ongoing work in the extensive construction site for the hospital.

The land was supposed to be used for building a factory. However, the owner, who is also the district’s mayor, changed his mind.

He offered the land to be used for free as a site for the biggest Covid-19 hospital in the country, as cases continue to rise in the province.

Thais Whisper Their Hopes And Wishes To Rat Statue

Buddhist devotees whisper their New Year wishes into the ear of a giant rat in Bangkok. The bronze rodent is found at a ‘Ganesh’ shrine in Ratchada. Followers have a mixture of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs.

Footage shows how locals give offerings of brightly-coloured beaded necklaces to the statue before telling it their deepest desires and dreams. It is believed that the animal then conveys the messages to its master, the elephant god Ganesh, also known as Ganesha, who brings good luck and wealth. Many of the followers at the temple were making wishes for the coming year.

”Ganesh is connected with artists and business people, who are trying to create success,” said one the gurus at the temple.

Thailand is predominantly Buddhist but the country has a long history of Hindu beliefs from when it was part of the great Khmer Empire. While in the Vaishnavism sect of Hinduism, the historic Buddha or Gautama Buddha, is considered to be an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu. Many Thais are entwined with the mixture of the two religions.
