The author of the Bangkok book managed to get some booklets while in Thailand and we'd like to offer them to you when you buy Dragon Hwatu and the Bangkok book. When you buy a deck of Dragon Hwatu along with the Bangkok book, you get one of the booklets. When you buy both sets of Dragon Hwatu with the Bangkok book, you get both booklets. There are absolutely no additional charges for the booklets. You'll receive the booklets along with Dragon Hwatu.
We have a very limited supply of these booklets: three copies of Thaiways and seven copies of Pattaya & Jomtien.
Thank you for your support.

According to Bloomberg, Air France will ask passengers to clear their seats and take their trash with them when leaving the plane as the carrier seeks to cut costs and stem the advance of EasyJet and Ryanair in its home market.
Paris-based Air France is working on the plan after cabin crew refused to assume cleaning duties at a low-cost operation it’s introducing in a push to claw back traffic at provincial airports, according to a union official involved in the talks.

So the next time you are handed a specification/ procedure/process and wonder ‘What horse’s ass came up with it?’, your question may be closer to the truth than you imagine. Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the rear ends of two warhorses (or two horse’s asses).
Now, the twist to the story:
When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The Thiokol at their factory in Utah makes sRBs. The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but they had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains, and the SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses’ behinds. So, a major Space Shuttle design feature of what is arguably the world’s most advanced transportation system was determined over 2,000 years ago by the width of a horse’s ass. Moreover, you thought being a horse’s ass was not important. Ancient horse’s asses control almost everything... and of course, contemporary horse’s asses are controlling everything else.
The first Catholic man tells his friends, "My son is a priest, when he walks into a room, everyone calls him 'Father'."
The second Catholic man chirps, "My son is a Bishop. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Grace'."
The third Catholic gent says, "My son is a Cardinal. When he enters a room everyone says 'Your Eminence'."
The fourth Catholic man then says, "My son is the Pope. When he walks into a room people call him 'Your Holiness'."
Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in silence, the four men give her a subtle, "Well....?"
She proudly replies, "I have a daughter, slim, tall, 38D breasts, 24" waist and 34" hips. When she walks into a room, people say "Oh My God."
