    A big python snake has visited a prison camp in Yala Province. In Thailand it is believed that having pet geese will keep away the snakes, this story proves that this belief isn’t true as the giant snake was found sleeping in the prison’s goose shed. The incident took place on 23 September 2020 at the Thun Pu Poh Prison Camp in Yarom Sub-district, Betong District, Yala Province. The local Sawang Betong Tham Rescue Team was notified of a big python snake hiding in the prison camp. Prisoners and officers were terrified of the snake.

    The local rescue team went to the location and found the python relaxing in the prison’s geese shed. 5 members of the rescue team, each an expert of catching wild snakes, took over an hour to finally capture the beast. It was a male python about 4.20 meters long and weighed over 23 kilograms. Amnaj Bunknamkum 42-year-old an officer at the prison stated that he worked as a prison caretaker. After the prisoners lined up to sing the national anthem in the morning he walked to the geese shed. A group of prisoners was going to practice raising geese as part of their training for life after prison.

    Amnaj arrived at the shed and heard the geese screaming in fear. He went inside the shed and believed there was probably a cat inside. His suspicions were confirmed false when the big python was spotted sleeping in the shed. The local rescue team was notified and the snake was finally secured an hour after the team arrived. Thanks to the local rescue team prisoners and officers at the prison camp can continue taking care of the geese without fear of being attacked by the giant snake. The Python is now safe and will be released back into nature.

    A 45-year-old gift shop owner in the northern Thai province of Chiang Mai has been arrested and charged with killing his six-day-old baby girl, sanook.com reported yesterday (Sept 24, 2020).

    The shop owner already has two daughters aged 7 and 11, and he was upset when the third baby girl was born six days ago. He drove the baby to a parking lot and force-fed her with toilet cleaning liquid.

    He later drove to a desolate spot not far from a cemetery in Doi Saket District of Chiang Mai, where he buried the baby.

    Arriving home, the husband told his wife that he had killed her baby. The police later came and took him to the police station.

    A fake agent has been arrested 10 years after his arrest warrant was issued. The man has gotten away with 400,000 THB for 10 years. The suspect admits that he makes sure to frequently change his home address but was finally arrested in Rayong Province. Police Lieutenant Colonel Polwut Pathinuwat and other related officials arrested Prayong wanted by an arrest warrant issued by the Phra Nakhon Nuea Court on 19 July 2011. The arrest warrant was issued on charges relating to fraud. Prayong was finally arrested in the main city of Rayong Province. 

     

    It all started when Prayong and joint suspects met with a victim in 2010 at a local gas station in Bangkok. The deal was to complete a contract of suretyship set at 4 Million THB for a bank. The money was to be used in an investment. Prayong and friends claimed that they knew a big guy in a bank who could help speed up the process in exchange for a payment of 400,000 THB. The victim believed the group and ended up paying the money. When the date of the contract came Prayong and friends went missing. At first, they came up with excuses and after a while, they just disappeared. The victim went to file a report with the Phaholyothin Police. Investigation officials collected evidence and submitted it to the court. 

     

    An arrest warrant was issued in 2011 but Prayong hadn’t been found until this year. On 23 September 2020 Investigation officials received information that Prayong has been living in the main city of Rayong Province. Officials went to inspect the area and spotted Prayong. Praying was arrested on the spot. The suspect has admitted to committing the crime and gave the reasoning that his friends were fake real estate agents. They invited him to become a part of the team to find some money. He has been on the run for 10 years making sure to frequently relocate believing that police have forgotten about him. Prayong has been delivered to the Phaholyothin Police Station waiting for prosecution.

    Metal Rods falls from a truck into a car driving behind, fortunately, the rods didn’t break through the windshield. The truck driver claims he tied the metal rods securely but the old rope is to blame. The incident was shared on Facebook by the victim. Thipyawadee 37-year-old stated that she was driving into a local mall in Nonthaburi province. A truck carrying metal rods was driving in front of her, suddenly the metal rods fell onto her car. When she asked the driver why the metal rods weren’t properly secured, the truck driver claimed it was the old rope’s fault for being weak. When the metal rods fell Thipyawadee was parked at the car parking box getting a parking card. The victim believes that if she had left the box the metal rods would’ve come straight through her windshield. Thipyawadee asked on Facebook “When will these people stop being so careless?”.

    Thipyawadee gave an interview to Khaosod News Team on 22 September 2020. She stated that the incident took place on the 3rd at 15.30. She had just picked up her 5-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter from school. When they arrived at the mall a truck carrying metal rods was in front of her with no red flag to help warn other drivers of the rods. She stayed far behind and when she arrived at the parking box the metal robs fell off the truck onto her car. If she would’ve gone any closer the rods would’ve entered her windshield. The victim’s daughter sitting in the front passenger seat stated to her mom “Why didn’t he tie the metal rods? Why would he let it fall down?”. 

     

    The victim came out of her car when the truck driver and the mall security guard came to check if she was ok. Thipyawadee stated that she was doing fine but her children were shocked. The victim then asked the truck driver about why the metal rods were left rolling around in the truck. The truck driver stated, “I tied the metal rods good, but the rope is weak”. The victim then told the truck driver to call his insurance company but the truck had no insurance. The security guard moved the car before calling the mall insurance provider who paid for the damages. Thipyawadee reveals the mall hasn’t contacted her to apologize since the incident and she believes that the truck was carrying metal rods to be used at a construction site in the mall’s property.

  • Top Reasons to Book a Serviced Apartment in Sathorn (and not a hotel)

    Who amongst us doesn’t love a good holiday? The golden opportunity to leave all your cares at home and go

    The post Top Reasons to Book a Serviced Apartment in Sathorn (and not a hotel) appeared first on ThaiResidents.com - Thai Local News - Thai News.

    Who amongst us doesn’t love a good holiday? The golden opportunity to leave all your cares at home and go off somewhere different to relax, rejuvenate, explore and enjoy. Holidays are a great time to bond with family and hang out with friends. Picking the destination for your getaway is the all-important first step to success, second to that is choosing your accommodation. Select the wrong place and your dream getaway could turn into a nightmare. If your itchy feet are sending you towards Bangkok, avoid any unnecessary stress and hassle and simply follow our advice: book a serviced apartment in Sathorn. Why? Because Sathorn is the most convenient part of town to be in and a serviced apartment offers the best comfort and value-for-money you can find. If you’re still not convinced, here are our top reasons to choose a serviced apartment for your next trip to the Big Mango.

     Spacious

    Picture this… you travel for 15 hours over land or sea to arrive at your destination only to discover that your pre-booked accommodation is the size of a shoebox. You don’t need to put up with such cramped conditions, not when a serviced apartment will give your double or triple the space (on average, 30% larger than a standard hotel room) for the same or lower rate! For those of your travelling for work or with young children, this extra space is a godsend. And did we mention that serviced apartments typically include separate zones for cooking, sleeping, relaxing and bathing.

     Homey

    Many people choose serviced apartments not because of its space or price, but because of its unique ‘home away from home’ feel. Instead of a cold, sterile, bland hotel room, you’ll get an apartment with character and soul. Chances are you won’t get homesick staying in one of these units as they feel like a real apartment; you’ll find it easier to settle in and relax here. On top of that, you’ll get full privacy and a swag of amenities that are just like at home: DVD player, stereo, flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi, telephone, kitchen utensils, linens and towels, bathroom supplies and so forth.

     Cost-effective

    Believe it or not, you don’t have to downgrade to a two-star property to make your holiday affordable, especially if it’s an extended vacation (or work trip). On a square metre basis, serviced apartments come out much cheaper than hotel rooms. What’s more, you’ll save additional money by being able to do your cooking and laundry. What could be better than saving money to spend on sightseeing, massages, experiences and souvenirs! We think that deal is too good to pass up.

     Housekeeping

    And lastly, one fantastic thing that might not be like home is that you’ll have your very own cleaner! That’s right, the fantastic perks of staying in a serviced apartment in Sathorn is that you get daily housekeeping. So, go ahead and make full use of all the facilities provided in your getaway pad but don’t worry about having to tidy up. Spend your valuable time exploring the wonderful sights, sounds and smells of Bangkok instead. Feel at ease knowing that someone else will wash the dishes, change the linens, prepare fresh towels, take out the trash, etc.
