The week that was in Thailand news: Thais have a long fuse – but be careful when it’s lit.

What the hell does ‘safe’ mean? I don’t mean those things that hold money and jewels – having four children has meant that I’ve never needed one of those. No ‘safe’ as in free from danger. My online dictionary tried to pin it down: “Protected from or not exposed to danger or risk; not likely to be harmed or lost”. That sounded like a recipe for the most boring life imaginable. Of course, the perception of risk and danger is in the eye of the beholder. Or to mix my metaphors, one man’s meat is another man’s mad cow disease. Some people wouldn’t be seen dead doing what another considers

Chee Chan is one of the first courses in the region to use Zemet Zoysia grass on the tees and fairways to great effect. In addition, their Bermuda Tifeagle greens will provide excellent year-round

The week that was in Thailand news: Return of the Rooster Rant!

At the start of 2017 I told my editor I had a good idea. You could almost hear him thinking across the cyber ether: “What’s that idiot up to now?” Every week I would write a “Midweek Rant”. I’d chose a subject that was getting my Thai goat up and vent my spleen for a few hundred reasonably well chosen words every Wednesday. How about it?
