welcome to my Monkey-blog.
Blogging is not the most natural thing for me and it may take me a couple of tries to get this right.
I like to spend my time writing short, popping bits of text that stick in your mind or make you smile. There is probably no art-form further from honest self-expression than marketing.
Since I won’t be doing any live shows in the near future (a New Year’s Special maybe on the cards), I want to share a little about what goes on in the lives of CKDS Thailand.
Monkey in Thailand
Okay, just to clarify. Technically these blogs are less about CKDSradio and more about life in Thailand.
So, Thailand has been in the news a lot lately.
Things like a military coupe tend to make the headlines, especially with so many foreigners living in Thailand.
Right after the coupe, there were a few worrying issues. News papers and TV channels went offline. The only source of news and television were military broadcasts. Old military broadcasts.
Curfews were implemented throughout Thailand (10pm) and rumours that the internet was to be shut down circulated quickly.
The way things were looking, Jo and I were ready to go on an extended holiday while the country sorted itself out.
Now, some months later, you wouldn’t even realise we were living under Marshall law.
The biggest changes?
- - Organized crime came face to face with an organized military might.
- People with 8 year old outstanding warrants can no longer bribe their way out of prison.
- - Militairy check points at airports and major ports are common.
- - Public transport has improved
- - Property development is up
- - The public is happier.
This is what life in Thailand looks like now:
