Chaweng Beach rescue

A jet ski operator being called a hero isn’t something you’ll see or hear too often in Thailand but that’s how one based on Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui is being described this week after video footage of him racing into rough seas to rescue a drowning farrang went viral.

MThai News reported the foolish farrang had ignored the warnings of swimming in the sea and is lucky not to be featured on the Stickboy news pages as another dead tourist.

I hope he sorted Mr Jet Ski out with a few baht for his troubles. As for him being a hero, I’ll let you watch the footage and decide.



Stickboy aka Sticky Boy aka Mike McKay aka Mike McKwai, Wild Mike, Magic Mike, Mr Mike, and a fair few more best forgotten, is a party animal with hollow legs who loves music, current affairs, beer, food, causing trouble on Twitter, and making the most of life without worrying too much about what people think or say about his antics.

rules of the road

Footage shows motorcycle riders in Bangkok appearing to disregard the country’s updated road safety laws.

Government officials announced changed fines for a range of offences from riding on the pavement to failing to wear a helmet.

However, this video shows how the announcement made little impact, with riders and pillion passengers on busy carriageways travelling without helmets.

The Royal Thai Police said road traffic fines for riding without a helmet were now 400 baht (13USD) for drivers and 800 baht (26USD) for pillion passengers. Riding on pavements is punishable by fines of 500 baht (16 USD).

Why don’t people follow the rules?

Thai Airways Street Food Stand In Bangkok

This is the Thai Airways street food stand outside the catering office in Bangkok. Whether or not ‘Pa Tong Go’ fried dough can save the airline from decline is anyone’s guess… but there’s no denying how popular the 50 baht sets are with locals.

The stand opens at 6am every day and there are long queues stretching round the block. They’re sold out by 8am.

Thai Airways – which staved off bankruptcy after a court approved a debt rehabilitation plan this month – claims it generates 400,000 baht a day, or 10m baht a month from the stall.

Airline acting president Chansin Treenuchagorn said they’re also considering more stalls and franchises.

They’re gonna need a few more stalls before the Pa Tong Go plugs the 300 million black hole they lost in 2019… which was before the pandemic hit.

According to Thai social media, it is time to book Mulder and Scully a flight to Chiang Mai where students believe they spotted a UFO flying over Doi Suthep on Thursday.

The widely shared smartphone footage was captured by students on top of a department store and shows the mystery object hovering.



Due to the cloudy sky, dull conditions and poor quality footage it is impossible to tell if the unidentified flying object was just a drone, a balloon or a sky lantern.

Morning news channels discussing the footage noted the ‘UFO’ was flying in the flight control zone for Chiang Mai International Airport.
