Couple die by electrocution at Phuket resort | The Thaiger

PHUKET: A Myanmar couple died by electrocution while working at a Rawai resort last night.

“The resort is located on Soi Sermsook, Moo 4. We found the body of Min Thaik Non, 29, lying face up on the ground near the bathroom door. We also found a woman’s body lying face down inside the bathroom. She was named by police only as ‘Noi’, age 29,” said Capt Somkiet Sarasit of Chalong Police.

Police are withholding the name of the resort.

Both victims had burns on their arms from their hands all the way up to their elbows. The bodies were taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital for further examination.

“Ms Noi was cleaning the bathroom while Mr Min was changing the bed sheets and tidying up the room,” confirmed Capt Somkiet after speaking to other workers at the resort.

“We believe that Ms Noi received an electric shock while cleaning and fell to the ground. Mr Min went inside to help her and also got electrocuted,” he added.

Police have yet to confirm the exact cause, but they believe it was most likely due to an electrical short circuit in the water heater attached to the shower.

Savoury staples with a touch of the finest Swiss chocolate  | The Thaiger

Chocolate… mmmmm. But did you consider it as part of a broader savory menu? I enjoyed an evening of chocolate-infused cuisine and, well, it really works!

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Karon Beach Phuket is treating guests to a new menu of savoury dishes with a sweet twist as Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts launches its ‘Chocolate on the Salty Side’ promotion.

In celebration of Swiss cuisine and the wonderful versatility of chocolate, the brand’s talented ‘food artisans’ have made Mövenpick chocolate the hero of seven dishes in its latest global campaign, which runs to 20 November, 2018.

From salmon fillets enlivened with dark chocolate to a savoury tarte tartin with a white chocolate flourish, each new creation offers up something distinctively flavourful and showcases chocolate in new exciting ways to guests dining at Movenpick Karon Beach El Gaucho Restaurant.

The seven chocolate-inspired creations include: marinated ‘beetroot salmon’ with root vegetables and 72% dark chocolate to enhance the meal’s rich earthiness; ‘tomato tarte tartin’ where ‘white lemon’ chocolate complements the goat’s cheese, pine nuts and coffee beans; ‘sea bass and green tea’ – a light foam of green tea, almonds, nuts and Mövenpick ‘Maple Walnut’ is the star; ‘minute beef goulash’, with a traditionally-made Hungarian goulash sauce, enriched with dark chocolate; ‘lamb shank and pesto’, slow-roasted and then refined with pistachio and hazelnut chocolate pesto; and ‘duck breast and potato pie’, with white chocolate, lime and pepper giving the pink-roasted meat a delicate yet spicy freshness.

Whilst the dishes have been infused with chocolate, it’s barely noticeable in most cases but makes for some subtle new tastes on European classics.

Less subtle are the exquisite desserts which are a blatant celebration of all things chocolate. Guests can finish their meal with a tempting ‘chocolate pavés au chocolat’, combining milk chocolate, crispy cocoa bean fragments, sizzling pecan nuts and slightly bitter matcha powder, all with a hint of green tea and paired with an espresso.

The quality of Swiss craftsmanship is world-famous and even the country’s chocolate is produced with legendary precision. Mövenpick chocolate is made in keeping with the tradition, as well as its own culinary values that date back 70 years, and is produced in Switzerland using 100% cocoa butter.

Maya Bay recovering says marine biologist | The Thaiger

Marine biologist Dr Thon Thamrongnawasawat says Maya Bay is starting to recover after many Blacktip reef sharks were found swimming around yesterday.

Dr Thon has commented on a video showing the Blacktip reef sharks found swimming near the shores of Maya Bay yesterday, “I have seen them about 2-3 times in the past week that I have been there. This time almost 20 of them have been sighted. It is means that the recovery plan is working.”

“Blacktip reef sharks are important to the biological system. They are predators which help control the numbers and kinds of fishes near coral reefs. Weak fish are being eliminated by the Blacktip reef sharks.”

“During this period of climate change the world environment is quickly changing. A good biological system is very important to handle natural disasters such as Coral Bleaching.”

“Blacktip reef sharks are important, not only for Maya Bay or Koh Phi Phi, but also important for the health of coral reefs nearby.”
