The couple who posted it, 29 year old Pat and 26 year old Nam, told The Pattaya News that as they were eating Bingsu ice cream outside a restaurant in South Pattaya, an obviously intoxicated woman wearing only trousers and a bra approached and gobbled their snack, then walked away without a word. They say they were “stunned”.

The pair say they know the intoxicated woman is homeless. They’ve urged officials to continue work on solving the homeless problems in the area, as the number of homeless seen a massive increased due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    This is just a symptom of the desperation now in Pattaya from the fall off in the tourism business and jobs due to the virus lockdown.

    The video showed her taking one bite, far from “gobbling”. Also cannot see proof of obvious intoxication
    ,though some sort of incapacity can be inferred.
    Typical journalistic hyperbole in search of an attention grabbing “hook”, in my opinion.
    It would have gotten a poor grade in Professor Filer’s journalism classes, in my opinion.
