Pattaya One News reports that at around 12:30am on April 24th, Pattaya police were called to a crime scene where a leading Chinese tour boss had been the victim of a theft. The incident took place on on Phet Trakul Road, Nong Prue. The victim Tao Yingjie, 34, was riding on the back of a motorbike taxi when he heard a second motorbike following them too closely.
Before he had time to react, he felt a tug on his gold necklace. He turned round to see two young Thai men, one of them clutching his gold chain, estimated to be worth around 100k Thai baht.
Commentary: If you don't wear your 100,000 Baht gold necklace on the back of a motorbike taxi in Pattaya it will never get stolen.... Just saying... Lol..

Celebrating my birthday tonight I went out to a local strip club after a break of several months. Within 30 minutes I was able to pick out 3 new dancers and all 3 were university students. Well, one was a culinary school student. Close enough and one told me that she was straight but had a couple of bi experiences with 2 of the other dancers but was looking to explore more. Hmmmmmm… Noted.
The thing about guys like us that have lot’s of experience hitting the clubs is that you just get a sixth sense gut feeling about dancers after years of practice. In other words which ones are the good girls, the good girls that like to be bad in a good way and then the one’s that are just total bitches that you want to avoid. Right? It’s a learned skill but a valuable one that helps you to get exactly what you want more quickly… Lol..

UK fraudster spent £100,000 of stolen cash on luxury trips to Thailand – and kept a Facebook diary as he cavorted with a string of ‘prostitutes’.
Pattaya One News reports that Tamworth car salesman Adam Lapworth, 32, has been jailed for two-and-a-half years after stealing a total of £265,000 from taxpayers, which he also splashed on drugs and gambling. After his arrest Lapworth initially claimed the crimes took place because of depression. Hmmmm…..
But investigators from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) discovered he had withdrawn £100,000 for luxury trips to Thailand – with a Facebook diary giving updates showing him dancing and sharing baths with scantily-clad Thai women. One video also showed him gyrating with a woman in a nightclub.
Investigators found that he spent a further £78,572 on online gambling, £18,985 on rent and gifts, and £895 on online pornography and prostitute directories. The brazen crook also paid £59,790 to his drug dealer, while a further £9,000 related to fraudulent Tax Credit payments.

Thai Visa News: Pol. Col. Apichai Kroppech, the chief of Pattaya told the media that they along with the officers from Banglamung had joined forces to ensure safety to the city during the water festival, they also wanted to declare that there will be no water throwing allowed after 8pm. Pattaya authorities were notified and currently putting up signs as well as making announcements that residents and/or tourists are not allowed to throw water after the time concerned to avoid any violence and misunderstandings.
Apparently, there have been many negative reports on the water throwing activities since a lot of people clearly don’t know when to stop. The police chief mentioned that everybody can join in on the festivities but that must be during appropriate times. Therefore, he is requesting cooperation from residents, tourists and relevant sectors to help reinforce the policy so that people can dress up appropriately in the evening without having to worry about getting wet.
Apart from that, more restrictions apply for vendors selling alcohol in public areas. Vendors caught doing so will be arrested immediately.
Commentary: I guess word hasn’t gotten out to the locals and tourists spraying water on Walking Street at 3am! Lol..
Pattaya One News reports that with police supposed to be stepping up their duties during the busy Songkran period, we were amazed to find some injured tourists complaining that they were struggling to find any.
Update: Facebook friends of Alex “Meet & Greet” on this Thursday April 20th at 8pm at Gspot GoGo on Walking Street.
Just a reminder that with Songkran there may not be a lot of dancers in the bars in Walking Street as a lot of girls head home for Songkran then come back a day or two after Songkran ends. But you can still enjoy some 45 baht draft beer, make some new friends that share similar interests and swap some barmonger stories at my :Facebook Friends of Alex - "Meet & Greet" at Gspot at 8pm this Thursday April 20th. If there’s not enough dancers back from Songkran to keep everyone entertained then grab a baht bus to Soi 6 and crash Dean’s 40th birthday party at “Where Angels Play”. Dean is partner and manager at Where Angels Play and I’m sure he’ll share some birthday cake with anyone that asks….
Everyone is invited be you a tourist for Songkran or an expat that lives in Pattaya and feel free to invite your friends!
