A fight in Pattaya’s Walking Street at the weekend ended up as a disagreement between two British friends, one of them the owner of the bar where the fight took place. But it was the Thai bouncer at the bar who ended up being hit.
Pattaya News reports that the two British men have been fined a total of 15,000 baht after Pattaya police sat them down for a ‘chat’.
The whole late night spat ended up in hugs and polite wais – the good name and ‘world class resort’ status of Pattaya intact.
The Pattaya News reports the names of the two British tourists as Mark Jones and Kieran Flannery. They allegedly started fighting in a club owned by Kieran.
Thanachai Wansiripetch was one of the bouncers at the establishment who tried to intervene and move the fight outside. He ended up being hit for his part in trying to cool the situation down.
Keiran and Mark were fined 5,000 baht each for fighting in public and Mark got an additional 5,000 baht for hitting the Thai bouncer.

Three million baht Central Pattaya stormwater roadworks – FAIL

Three million baht spent but not a lot to show for the considerable investment. Central Pattaya residents say that nearly 3 million baht was spent on roadwork but has failed to alleviate the flooding in the sois where the money was invested.
Nattapong Santaveesuk of the city’s Engineering Department toured two side streets in Soi Arunothai with neighborhood representatives Amnuay Muangthong this week.
The Pattaya Mail reports that residents living on Soi Charoensuk and Soi Udomsuk complain that their streets were ripped up, new drainage pipes laid and the road resurfaced, all with the goal of ending years of chronic flooding.
But it didn’t work.
Both streets continue to flood and take a long time to drain according to residents
Both projects are under warranty for two more years, according to city engineers, so they will ask the contractors to appraise the situation and perhaps rip up the roads again to fix what they failed to do the first time.

Pattaya’s LONG Songkran comes to an end today
Whilst most of us have hung up our water pistols last Saturday or Sunday following Songkran revellry, punters in Pattaya have been hard at it all week.
But after 9 days of water wastage and Songkran celebrations, the annual festivities come to a close in parades and official festivities today and tomorrow.
Officially, according to the Pattaya Mail, April 19 is the final day of Pattaya’s Songkran celebrations. Ceremonies are being held today at Chaimongkol Temple. Alms offerings and elderly blessing ceremony were held early this morning and cultural shows continuing during the day featuring dancing and traditional games.
Pattaya’s Songkran parade started at noon along Second Road, Central Road and back along Beach Road to Bali Hai Pier before returning to the temple.
Pattaya officials reminded revellers that powder and chalk isn’t permitted, along with high-power water guns. Water-throwing is ‘meant’ to stop at 6pm, but… well… Songkran!
Tomorrow, April 20, the Rice Festival in Naklua, with no water throwing, officially draws the mid-April events to a close.
