January is usually a very dry month for Bangkok. Also, the temperature is usually comfortable. Today ... big rain. Also, 35 Celsius. Someone is fucking with the weather; goD or man?

It's Sunday; time for the funnies! Both deal with death.

One for laughter; one for tears.


PS: Being Sunday I also got a foot massage.

Another peek through the windows of two of our soon to be opened Athenee Residence restaurants: Ad Makers and Hyde & Seek.

BN Hospital in Bangkok has a nice display of antique invasive devices.

New Airport check-in procedure; it puts the fun back into flying.

MK Suki and the start of season 9 of American Idol ... can life get any better?

In less than a month we have to face this. Far worse than 'yesterday's' mass strip search.


Our neighbors are putting on some weight.

I love this letter to the editor of The Economist (January 9th 2010):

SIR - Having read your article about difficult languages ("Tongue twisters", December 19th) I scoff at Tuyuca and Kwaio for having only two words for "we", inclusive and exclusive. In English we have three: the regular we meaning you and I, as in "we had dinner together"; the royal we meaning I, as in "we are not amused"; and the marital we meaning you, as in "we need to take out the garbage."

On Saturdays I am a creature of habit. I really look forward to a Spanish Omelet * at Sala Thai, a Thai restaurant located next to River City. It's location on the Chao Phrya River ensures a nice watery view. Also, it is just opposite The Millennium Hilton hotel.
