  1. Yes. Absolutely. My other guess would be, the lockdowns are somewhat slowing down the virus here but at the same time elongating the spreading.
  2. I'm not questioning the vaccines. Sure they are crucial. I was expecting the Thai numbers to start coming down by now, based on what happened in India. My thought was, Delta is so much more infectious that it runs its course faster, therefore we should have seen declining numbers by now.
  3. I also find it quite interesting that cases flare-up in India pretty fast, but they came down at the same speed. (approx two months each way) Thailand however just keeps climbing higher every day during the last 3 months.
  4. It has almost nothing to do with tourism. This garbage dump just started to be used in the last year or so.
  5. I love China and the CCP or (CPC for poolie) so I can have my opinion without being told to STFU. :)))))) Whoa. Is this meant to be funny? ROTFL, Can't dream a better wednesday evening than arguing with two trolls :))))))
  6. :)))) Try to make a joke about Vinnie the Pooh on weibo or wechat and see how far you can go. Compare this to Pinocchio and how many times it is mentioned here without disappearing from the earth. I didn't say that western media is the metric of freedom, but when it comes to China vs. West, I think 99 people out of a 100 would select the west. As I always say to people like you: You aren't stupid, but you are just out of luck when you're ought to be thinking.
  7. I'm not gonna argue whether you like China or not. If you say so I believe you. However, I can still say things about the govt. here. I can watch youtube or use google, I can post on Facebook, or any other socmed apps without using VPN, which if I would use in China would be illegal. I can buy a beer or food or milk powder for my baby without worrying about fake poisonous crap. I don't have to worry about my religion, and being sentenced without seeing a lawyer. I could go on with the list but I know diddly squat about China, so I wouldn't. oops. I almost forgot to mention the pandAmic. It's still a question of whether it was a lableak (probably) or zoonotic, but one thing is for sure. China deliberately covered it up, causing death to millions. I can't wait to move there.
  8. Rule 11... only make promises that you can uphold to it BANGKOK, Aug 4 (Reuters) - The chair of Thailand's Thonburi Healthcare Group (THG) (THG.BK) said on Wednesday that a deal to import 20 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech (PFE.N), (22UAy.DE) COVID-19 vaccine was unlikely to happen, despite his earlier claims that a deal was close.
  9. Rule 10... Don't keep too much money in the bank. Thailand’s Deposit Protection Agency (DPA) said on Wednesday that from August 11 onwards, it will only provide protection for 1 million baht per account holder instead of 5 million baht.
  10. Who needs these corals anyway? We can't eat them or funk them so they are pretty useless to humans. They should stop complaining. If they don't like our sun cream they can just leave.
  11. So we just send your profile picture guy (Rambo) to deal with them. Case solved. :)
  12. Do they have Mercedes Benz factories in Taiwan? No? We are in trouble then :))))
  13. I posted earlier in case you missed it :) MikeW asked: What does coral have to do with a national park in the mountains? Nothing at the moment, but when Greenland melts the corals have to move higher up.
  14. Nobody wants war with China, but I'm not so sure about these commie bastards. They already managed to kill some 4,000,000 of us with their pandAmic. Berlin Germany on Monday sent a warship to the South China Sea for the first time in almost two decades, joining other Western nations in expanding its military presence in the region amid growing alarm over China's territorial ambitions. Countries including Britain, France, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, have also been expanding their activity in the Pacific to counter China's influence. https://edition.cnn.com/2021/08/02/world/german-warship-south-china-sea-intl-hnk/index.html
  15. The backdoor is still open. I hardly believe that they search all incoming traffic in case somebody hides in the trunk. Not to mention the private longtail "Fishermans" who I'm sure to turn down all paying customers from the mainland 500 meters away. 15,000 new arrivals to the sandbox were probably drawn some attention from the jobless "masseuses" in the north.
  16. In case you wonder.... This is a private land supposed to be a water park in Samui. Now half the island is dumping their garbage here illegally. (sun cream too) The best part is when these idiots decide to set it on fire. I just love their vigilance to pinpoint the real problems.
  17. Nothing at the moment, but when Greenland melts the corals have to move higher up.
  18. There's nothing for you to feel depressed about today. Here's some heartwarming news to cheer you up. India, Germany, UK just launched their naval forces to the South-China sea to join the US naval forces who are already there. Covid is not deadly enough, the climate change is not fast enough to wipe us out so let's just start a nuclear war instead while the Chinese are in talks with the Taliban. Have a good day now :)
  19. I'm sure somewhere, someone made these comparisons, but I don't know where to find it. To be honest I don't even care, because in the end, we have to accept the numbers the government provides. However, I'm pretty sure that Phuket is doing much better than Bangkok.
  20. It's a great opportunity for those unemployed soi dogs to sniff out those dirty farangs who use suncream. I mean I agree to stop polluting the oceans, but how is it going to be enforced? When are they going to regulate commercial fishing? (a forum member nemed "soidog" gotta love this article)
  21. https://www.thainewsreports.com/ or https://ddc.moph.go.th/covid19-dashboard/ This one is the official site, so it's in Thai, but the figures you are looking for are the two "purple boxes" in the right left corner
  22. "Phuket has the potential to lead the global tourism recovery, as the historic Phuket Sandbox initiative sets the standard for other destinations to follow" They should make this quote from this Singaporean guy printed out, and hand it to each and every "tourist" in the sandbox. I'm sure they would appreciate how lucky they are from a different "Angle" If this model would be an example or so-called standard for future tourism then tourism would cease to exists.
  23. CP is a great acronym. It can mean Charoen Pokphand Group or China Party and their 15% share in Sinovac has nothing to do with that Thailand approved it first. Or maybe it does. I'm confused. Or not. :)
  24. Is it snaked to Phuket? Was it vaccinated? Got PCR tests? Paid for SHA+? Can it leave the island on a bus? Many question left unanswered here.
  25. Sandbox is not a solution (for tourism) and not a first step either (first step requires the second step and the third). You either reopen or you don't. Everything else is just a desperate search for miracle. I'm not against the sandbox, just make sure we call it what it is. It is not an industry-leading global solution like this guy from Singapore would like to see it. "Phuket has the potential to lead the global tourism recovery, as the historic Phuket Sandbox initiative sets the standard for other destinations to follow" If this model would be an example or so-called standard for future tourism then tourism would cease to exists.
