Goodbye to May 2011

Goodbye to May 2011

It's that time of the month again and May, version 2011 is about to say goodbye.

The weather this month was excellent on Koh Samui, especially after the floods in March and April, it was good to have a sunny and at times very hot month again. Almost every day was sunny and the temperature kept creeping up, slowly but surely, day by day. Although there was an occasional shower, it isn't until the last few days of the month that we had some more rain than just a shower, actually right now, whilst I'm writing this, it's raining pretty hard since 10 to 15 minutes or so.

The May 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007 versions weren't consistently as nice and hot as this years edition.

Sunny days this month at Chaweng Beach

Other than the weather, I had a very enjoyable and successful IDC on Koh Samui this month where all my candidates passed their PADI IE or examination.

The visit to the Coco Splash water park in Lamai was a big hit with the children, just having talked about the recent floods, it was good to be able to help this month again.
A big religious holiday in the form of Visakha Bucha day was also celebrated this month and a visit to the Samui Boat Lagoon Villa's was on the menu as well.
Just today I posted about the murder of an expat on Samui whose murder case initially was classified as a suicide by the local police, interesting to see where the investigation will lead to.

For food, I went to my usual haunts, well known by now!

See you next month!

Thai police start Murder investigation after drowning on Samui has been ruled out

Thai police start Murder investigation after drowning on Samui has been ruled out

The Thai police have finally started a murder investigation into the death of a British national Kevin Attew, 57, living here on Koh Samui since various years.
After a post mortem conducted in Surat Thani the Surat Thani police requested the Samui police to re-open the case of Kevin Attew, who according to the Samui police had committed suicide and drowned in Chaweng lake after his Thai girl friend told the police that he was planning to do so. Attew's body was found last Tuesday.

Kevin Attew

Considering that Chaweng Lake at certain places is just about 30 centimeters deep and also taking into account that the Gulf of Thailand starts straight off Chaweng Beach, within a mile of where Attew's body was found, a shallow lake is not a very great place to commit suicide if an ocean is just around the corner.

Yesterday the case was re-opened as a murder investigation after the victim's best friend went to visit the local morgue and took pictures that clearly showed that Kevin, who was a motor cycle enthusiast had been beaten to death first and bruises could easily be identified on his body.

Londoner Crispin Paton-Smith, publisher of a real estate magazine on the island and Mr. Attew's best friend, said: “I was appalled to hear the verdict of drowning. It was a no brainer. Kevin was beaten to death and his body was left on dry land for quite a while before being put in the lake.

Paton-Smith a former gunner in the Royal Artillery said: “I have spoken to his girlfriend and she continues to insist he committed suicide. He did not unless he beat himself to death. He would have had to dig a hole to drown himself.

“Kevin ran a very successful bar and was the sweetest man in the world. He had no enemies".

"He was also a biker and he raised a lot of money doing charity rides for the Red Cross and other deserving causes."

Kevin Attew left and Crispin Paton-Smith right, with his girlfriend

It seems that the Koh Samui is trying to play down crime on the island out of fear of upsetting its lucrative tourism industry.

A spokesman for the Regional Police in Surat Thani on the mainland in southern Thailand said: “We are treating this as murder and have asked for the body to be sent here for a full autopsy.”

Mr. Attew, who produced rock and advertising videos in Britain, owned the ‘Honey Bar’ in Chaweng a meeting placed for bikers. He was founder of the ‘Koh Samui Pirates’ motorcycle club, which consists mainly of middle aged men who like touring on motorbikes and like to wear their ‘colours’ but who do not involve themselves in some of the extreme practices with which these groups are often associated.

Thai police have at least once mistaken such motorcyclists for members of Scandinavian and American motorcycle gangs with a reputation for crime.
They arrested and jailed several law-abiding bikers four years ago, including Mr Paton-Smith, a member of the Koh Samui Bandidos motorcycle club, who was eventually released without charge.

A British Embassy spokesman said relatives of Mr Attew had been informed of his death.

Let's hope that this case will get the attention it deserves and that for once justice will be served and this case won't be swept under a carpet. You can show your support by attending the 'virtual funeral' on Facebook.

Laguna Phuket International Marathon coming up soon; 12th June 2011

Laguna Phuket International Marathon coming up soon; 12th June 2011

In preparation for this event, I ran a training half marathon this morning, getting as close as possible to the real deal!

I woke up at 4.45am this morning, had my breakfast early and started running at 6am, the same time the Phuket Half Marathon will start, since this is the distance I will be participating in.
I ran 21.5 km in 2 hours, 20 minutes and 45 seconds, on a very hilly course and this is about 10 minutes faster than I expected. The weather over Samui this morning was just about perfect, cloudy but dry without sunshine, just how I like for running!

Finishing during the Samui Care for Cancer run, earlier this year

My run is also a fund raiser for Ocean Protection as part of the Project Aware foundation. Donations are more than welcome and if you want to join in any of the mentioned distances, feel free to join me.

Food on Wheels; Truck for construction workers

Food on Wheels; Truck for construction workers

Here's a slight variation on the Food on Wheels series; today I highlight a form of food delivery by means of a truck instead of the all too familiar motorbike and it's not a finished product that you can buy neither.

Samui boasts lots of building sites, some might argue too many but that's a different discussion. All these sites have construction workers on them and they need to eat as well. Since they're on small wages, they mainly tend to cook themselves and the trucks pictured here basically serve the building or constructions sites or possibly even the areas where they live, which many times are relatively isolated areas and since the workers most likely don't posses a bike, they can't go out at their convenience and buy food and or ingredients to cook. In come these trucks!

Besides food and cooking ingredients they also sell many other small items like baby powder, soap etc. It's kind of like the supermarket truck that used to make it's rounds back in the days in Europe when I was a kid.

A couple of times I've seen these trucks already stocking up early in the morning at the Samui Makro store before they go out and start selling their goodies.

Another , more hidden and less viewable sample food on wheels!

Samui Regatta Samui 2011; May 30th - June 4th

Samui Regatta 2011; May 30th - June 4th

It's that time of the year again and the Samui Regatta is about to kick off for the 10th edition on Koh Samui!

One of Asia's biggest regatta's and the final of the Asian Yachting Grand Prix, this event has grown to attract the best yachts in Asia and a large spectator following who come for great sailing, great parties and many other events that occur during one incredible week each year.


The regatta was founded in 2001. Starting with just 11 boats the event grew every year with an extensive number of beach cats making up much of the fleet.

By the 3rd year the regatta had achieved International status and was beginning to attract a number of boats from overseas including Hong Kong, Singapore and even Australia.

The regatta continued to grow and cemented its importance to the Asian yachting scene by being
the last regatta in the Asian Yachting Grand Prix series.
After 8 races in 5 countries this means that the overall grand prix results often come down to how well yachts perform in Samui.

The regatta was purchased in late 2007 and management of the regatta was outsourced to
professional Bangkok based event organizers MobyElite, ensuring a bright future and the ensuing growth of the regatta.

This future was further cemented when island based business Web Sawadee came on as a principle partner for 3 years allowing us to further raise the profile of the event.


Numbers:

- In 2008 there were over 300 participants from over 20 countries.
- The event generated over 13 million bahts worth of media coverage.
- It generated nearly 100 million baht for the Thai economy

- In 2009 there were 350 participants
- Then event generated over 30 million bahts worth of media coverage.
- It generated approximately 250 million baht for the Thai economy.

Objectives

The Regatta has 3 key objectives;

1. Increase tourists to the island of Koh Samui.
2. Increase awareness and participation in Sailing in Asia.
3. Support youth education and sporting activities on the island.

It aims to do this through actively increasing the value we offer to all key stakeholders. Participants, Spectators, Media, Sponsors and the Community.

Enjoy!

Samui Boat Lagoon Villa's in Plai Laem

Samui Boat Lagoon Villa's in Plai Laem

During the recent flooding on Samui during late March and early April this year, one of the persons that contacted me was Joakim and as it turned out, his family owned a Villa Resort near to where I live in Plai Laem. After a few emails to and fro I was invited by Joakim to visit the Samui Boat Lagoon Villa premises and today he was on the island and I had time to visit!

The general pool to be used by all guests, one of the biggest pools on Samui!

The complex houses 26 villas, split up in one bed room, 2 bedroom and 4 bedroom villas with an additional three beach side 3 bedroom villas! Plenty of choice and each villa has it's own pool, kitchen and living area besides the air conditioned bedrooms.

The reception

There's no restaurant on the premises, a choice well thought out and it makes no real difference since there are plenty of options available near the Resort area, including the Fishermans Village that's just a 10 minute drive away, besides the options that Bang Rak and Choengmon offer! Breakfast is offered at a small surcharge, with room service.

A view of the 3 bedroom beach villa

Since there are only villas and a general, very big swimming pool, the place has an intimate feel to it and once you're in your room, with a private pool, there's not much need to leave your room again!

2 Bedroom living area and kitchen

The one bedroom villas have 160 sqm to offer, the 2 bedroom villas 240 sqm and the 4 bedroom villas 500 sqm. Very spacious and at amazing rates!

Bathroom

I was especially impressed with the spacious bathrooms and the architecture of the villas, with all the amenities which you would expect at a modern resort.

With a great quiet location in Plai Laem, near the airport , Wat Plai Laem, plenty of restaurants within 10 to minutes rides and great offers available at the booking engines, some villas are currently cheaper than hotel rooms in other parts of the island, it's well worth to check out and consider staying here.

Visakha Bucha Day


That's what it is today and it's pretty much the most important day in Buddhism.

Visakha Puja Day marks the three important incidents in the life of Lord Buddha on the same day - the full moon of the sixth lunar month. The three significant separate event are;

1. The Buddha's Birth - the Buddha was born into a royal warrior clan in the Lumbini Garden (in an area of Northern India known today as Nepal) In the morning of the Vesak full moon day, 80 years before the Buddhist Era. He was named Siddhattha five days after his birth.



2. "The Enlightenment of Buddha - While sitting under the Bodhi tree, he found his answer and attained the enlightenment at the age of 35 years at Uruvelasenanigama subdistrict, Magadha state, (nowadays, located in the area of Buddha Kaya, Bihar State, India), on Wednesday, the Vesak full moon day, the zodiac of the cock, forty five years before the Buddhist Era.

3. The Nibbana - The Buddha passed away on Tuesday, the Vesak full moon day in the zodiac year of the small snake under the two Sal trees in the Sala Grove of the Mallas in Kusinara, the capital of the Malla state, (nowadays located in Kusinagara of Uttrarapradesa, India) at the age of eighty years (around 2547 years ago).

VISAKHA BUCHA (Vesak) means the worship of the Buddha on the full moon day of the sixth lunar month. It usually falls in May. In the case of a year with an extra eighth lunar month--Adhikamasa (there are 13 full moons in that year)-- the Visakha Bucha Day falls on the full moon day of the seventh lunar month.

Financial help for flood victims in Nakhon Si Thammarat

Financial help for flood victims in Nakhon Si Thammarat

Just like last month, when I was able to financially help flood victims in Chaweng, from a donation made by Peter in London, this time around we were able to help people in Nakhon Si Thammarat. Our friend Tawan lives there, who we visited in June 2007.

The best picture I have of Tawan's house, which is located in the background

Their house got flooded very badly and the whole ground floor had to be taken out and rebuild, plus many utensils were lost. We were able to help out with 5.000,-THB and Tawan's family was very happy for the help. The second third of Peter's donation is now gone. Thanks to Peter for helping out!

Around Samui there are various construction works under way to restore flood damage or to improve the overall situation. One of the things currently being done, is putting a new drainage system in place on the road leading from Tesco Lotus down to Chaweng where the one way system starts, as can be seen in the picture above.

Friday 20th May there will be a big underwater clean up on Chaweng Beach.

It's hard to believe that the island underwent such an out of season flood just over a month ago! Things are on the up again and right now is a great time to visit, not too busy and great weather!

Hope to see you soon.

Koh Samui Taekwondo championships

Koh Samui Taekwondo championships

Today the 2nd Koh Samui Taekwondo championships are being held in Nathon, opposite the Seatran pier. As posted on 24th February, our son has taken up this sport and after gaining his yellow band a week or two ago, today was going to see his first fight.

In almost three months time he learned a lot but it looks like he still doesn't really understand the concept of fighting, which may not be a bad thing at all.

The color codes of Taekwondo rankings

Dennis warming up before his fight

His fight didn't go that well, during the first round he received two hits near the head and the coach wisely called the fight. His opponent had a green band, which means he has better skills and more training than our son and this clearly showed during the fight.
There were some disappointment tears but nothing that a visit to the local 7-11 couldn't heal quickly and right now the motivation for a next tournament and fight is rather low, no real surprise there.

It was a very busy event, with Taekwondo clubs from all over Samui but also schools from Patthalung, Hat Yai, Phuket and various other locations participated.

The Governor of Surat Thani, Khun Damri Bunching, Samui's Mayor and a few other political hot shots attended. A good event and I hope our son starts to enjoy his current fave sport again, soon!

Coco Splash water park in Lamai

Coco Splash water park in Lamai

Samui's first water amusement park; Coco Splash, down in Lamai! Yesterday we visited this park with our two children and two friends and although we didn't arrive until just after 1pm, we had trouble getting them out of there again by 5pm. It was a great success and they can't wait to get back again and get wet! The place is open now for around a month.

The park is set up and run by a French couple and they seem to have hit the nail on the head, this is something that Samui has been lacking for a long time, a great day out with your children!

Although the park isn't that big, approximately 30 by 70 meters I would guess, for a 5 years old it must be big enough, especially looking at the reactions of our kids!

The smaller glide, for 5 years and older with a max height of 160cm. A big fave by all the kids that we took and the kids already in the park or who joined later.

The big slide, for 8 years and older or at least 125cm height. A big hit with especially my son. I rode it a few as well and it's surprisingly fast! Be warned!

An overview of the park, there are two main slides and a water basin with some minor attractions. Opening times are between 10.30 and 17.30 and it may get crowded during the weekends or school holidays. Birthday parties are also available at request.

How to get there

Entrance fee is 200,-THB for the day for swimmers/players and free for non swimmers. A membership card is available at 350,-THB with each visit only being 100,-THB, however the membership card is only valid for 6 months. I'm sure we will visit again but most likely not to justify the expense of a membership, especially considering we live relatively far away from the park. Information can be obtained on 08 1082 6035
Food and drinks are also available at the park.

I'm happy the park is here now and I'm sure we will visit again, don't hesitate and have a visit, your kids will love it!
