Police in Pattaya are doing more than continue their project to cook food for the needy and unemployed: yesterday they had an upbeat cook-off between the police chief and a famous Thai TV chef. The project is designed for locals who are unemployed or furloughed due to the current Covid-19 crisis. Read more about that HERE.

The Pattaya City police chief took on Thai celebrity chef Kengraratwat Wichianrat, from the show Iron Chef Thailand. The chief is wearing the red hat in the video below:

They cooked around a hundred meals for some of the locals deeply affected by the lockdowns ad closure measures, while officers provided proper physical distancing, hygiene standards and a queue system for diners, all of whom ate for free.

    I am looking at this picture and what do I see. Neither of the 3 people in the photo have a mask on. Personally, I don’t care because I do not like wearing one, but when you hear about the police hassling people to put one on, then this is wrong.

    Oh here we go, showing police chiefs being lovable sports.
    They are not. They are the strong arm thugs of the Thailand dictators.
