Vegetarian festival in Chiang Mai

Vegetarian Festival in Chiang Mai

This year from 1st - 9th October 2016 the yearly Vegetarian Festival is happening again in Thailand. In most Thai-style place, you can enjoy an extra large menu of vegetarian dishes. The Vegetarian Festival is particularly popular with local Thai, who see it as a way to make merit, purify their bodies, and live healthily for a week or so, to go back to meat bbq's (mukaataa) after that.

Vegetarian Festival in Chiang Mai

In shops and vegetarian restaurants, the variety of fake meat is larger and larger. From fake chicken, pork and ham to fishballs, meat balls and sometimes entire fish, all made of tofu protein and additives of course.

What is your opinion on the Vegetarian Festival? Does it make sense to celebrate it this way? Is it better than nothing? Should we eat fake meat?

17 foreigners arrested in Chiang Mai

Seventeen foreigners arrested for working illegally

The 17 foreigners were teaching online English courses to students in China. They were working in the office of BOI 360 Max Co., which had modified an office space on the ground floor of Riverside Condominium (Chiang Mai - Lamphun Road) into spaces for individual and group classes, using partitioning walls and notebooks. 
According to the news, the language teachers were hired by BOI 360 Max Co., but the foreigners didn’t have work permits and the company didn’t have the proper permission and breached working conditions.

Costs for education visa double, duration halved

Costs for Student Visa double, duration halved
 
In an apparent attempt to make foreign students in Thailand study more seriously, the rules for an education visa have suddenly become stricter. The maximum duration of an education visa is now 6 months instead of 1 year, and the minimum number of hours required to study is 200 hours per 6 months (used to be 180 hours per year).
This will effectively double the costs of an education visa.

I celebrate the passing of a guru

Margherita Russo reflects on the recent passing away of Indian Guru B.K.S. Iyengar, who helped to popularize yoga around the world: 'Lately, my Facebook feed has featured a great number of posts expressing sadness about the recent passing of BKS Iyengar. Even before that, I found myself scrolling through many posts expressing alarm about his hospitalization and critical condition. The main theme of most (though, luckily not all) of these posts has been mourning, sadness, loss, “oh-my-god-what-are-we-going-to-do-now” emotions.'

Chiang Mai In China

 Story posted by Admin Locator on May 10, 2014 at 18:44:29 :: What's on

Since around last 3 years ago, Chiang Mai became well known and very popular among Chinese tourists. Because of a Chinese movie "Lost in Thailand". The movie was shot in Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Phuket and became very successful in China. And seems the number of tourists is high enough for Chinese government to invest money to buit another Chiang Mai inside China.

Chinese New Year 2014 and the Year of the Horse

 Story posted by Admin Locator on January 28, 2014 at 05:37:02 :: What's on

Chinese New Year 2014 is on Friday January 31. What’s the best place to celebrate it or to experience some Chinese culture? How do the "old" Chinese relate to the influx of "new" Chinese? What's the best place to go to?

It’s interesting to witness the difference between the “new” Chinese and the “old” in Chiang Mai. The old, local Chinese have established here for a long time and have lost a lot of their original culture, traditions and ways of life, probably because Thailand is such a tolerant country and the Chinese immigrants have mixed very well with the Thai locals.

Local Song: Ballad of a Very Sad Man

Admin Locator
 Story posted by Admin Locator on December 04, 2013 at 02:32:20 :: What's on

The latest local song by 'local' Patrick Kennedy is This is My City. Perhaps it's not going to hit the top of pop but the lyrics of his songs are quite good and it's good to know that there's still some creativity in town, especially amongst 'the oldies'. There's something Dire Straits about the voices and the guitars.
