Thai news and social media have lost their minds over the past 24hrs after a real-life soap opera moment played out in real life as a man marrying his mistress was confronted by his wife and mother at the wedding ceremony and shared live on Facebook for the world to see.
The 34-year-old police captain from Chai Nat province faces disciplinary action, and 30 days in jail for polygamy, after video footage of his marriage to his gold shop gik went viral on Thursday.
Father of two and husband of 16 years, Pol Captain Saranyoo Nookaew, not only got a tongue lashing from his wife but also a slap round the head from his mother as he sat with his mistress getting blessed by monks.
His wife said that when she realised her husband was playing away from home, she tried to get the other woman to end the affair but to no avail.
In one video the groom is heard telling his real wife: “Leave the party. You are not a guest of this house. Please leave.”
A second clip circulating shows the groom’s angry mother confront him – much to the amusement of the masses who have watched both videos in their millions with the policeman and his mistress coming in for heavy criticism.
Food Park At Big C Ratchadamri Is Dead Without Chinese Tourists
Photos of the Food Park located at Big C on Ratchadamri Road in Bangkok looking like a ghost town have been widely circulated on social media over the past 24 hours.
Of course, food courts are currently closed in Bangkok due to the government order, however, this has been the scene since last April.
Normally the Big C Superstore would be packed from open until close with thousands of Chinese tourists passing through its doors every hour.
The Ratchadamri branch was the companies flagship store making more money than any other in Thailand.
The overflow reached every part of the complex including the Food Park which just like the supermarket, was packed from morning until night.
Now, with restrictions on entering Thailand still in place, both are deserted and like a ghost town.
Lower Sukhumvit Is A Ghost Town
This was the scene showing many closed bars, hotels, shops and restaurants on Sukhumvit Road this week.
Like many people living in Bangkok, I was hoping the powers that be weren’t going to pull the plug on restaurants. Sadly, they did.
They’ll be staying closed until further notice when someone decides it’s safe for people to eat with friends and family again.
There’s a lot of people whose livelihoods are been lost. It really is a sad sight.
Quakers: Pet Duck Rides Owner’s Motorcycle
This motorcycle rider is often seen around Chinatown at night carrying his pet duck on the back of his bike.
Here he is in a video at a retro night market near Bangkok’s Ong Ang canal. Shoppers gathered round to take pictures of the unusual pillion passenger and ask the old man questions about the cute pet.
He said his duck has a name tag around his neck which also has a flashing light and his phone number, in case he ever gets lost. He has a remote control which he says controls the duck.
