Chemical Poison

The chemical posioning happened in a vault inside the HQ (headquarters) of one of Thailand's major banks - Siam Commercial Bank. The bank is located on Ratchadaphisek Rd in central Bangkok. 

The incident happened due to a upgrade in the banks Chemical Fire Safety system. This was an accident as contractors were completing their work. SCB has blamed the explosion on the contractors that were working on the upgrade. 

'The work may have triggered the Pyrogen aerosol which, once it works, will decrease oxygen, that could cause people's injuries and death' Siam Commercial Bank has stated in a statement released to the public.
It is thought that the contractors were working on a kind of aerosol system that is designed and used in places where water can damage certain types of important things such as documents. The aerosol system was accidentally triggered caused the room to be free of oxygen, therefore people nearby were unable to breath.

'an aerosol system called pyrogen was "inadvertently activated and exhausted all the oxygen in the area" as contractors were working on it'  stated Siam Commercial Bank.
There were delays getting to the people that died stated the Bangkok Post. Because of the doors of the vault being so tough, it made the task of getting to the victims a lot more difficult.

Autopsies have shown that the victims had died due to lack of oxygen.  Seven people were killed including a on-duty guard. 

 'There were no wounds found on their bodies. It was like they were sleeping' General Porn Sutheerakhun - Institute of Forensic Medicine.
Siam Commercial Bank expressed their sympathies:
  'SCB would like to express its sympathy to those injured and killed'

Overstaying Thai Visa Rules 20th March 2016

Overstaying Visa in Thailand 2016

No matter what you do, don't overstay. From March 20th 2016, new rules are in place to stop foreigners overstaying. If you want to continue your adventure in Thailand then don't overstay.

It has become a big problem in Thailand - Thailand is naturally a beautiful place to visit. But many foreigners overstay on purpose. And usually pay the subsequent fine that occurs with an overstay on Thai Visa. Thailand have now decided to stop this problem, which makes a better Thailand for everybody.


During the time of writing over-stayers have to pay a fine when they exit the country. This will all be handled by the 'overstay immigration' officials. Usually the fine is 500 baht per day. And you can be imprisoned for overstaying. Regardless of this, when you exit you can comeback on another visa. But this will all change on March 20th 2016. 

What Will Happen To Overstayers on March 20th in Thailand?

Foreigners who have overstayed will be subjected to the usual procedure of having to pay the 500 baht per day, when this reaches 20,000 baht, it will stop.

But they will also face a ban on re-entering the country for a fixed amount of time.

These are the 2 ways the ban could affect you:

1. If you go to immigration things will be a lot easier. Your ban will be for a shorter amount of time.

Overstayed for 90 days                                  -   Not allowed to enter Thailand for 1 year.
Overstayed for 12 months (1 year or more)  -   Not allowed to enter Thailand for 3 years.
Overstayed for 36 months (3 years or more) -   Not allowed to enter Thailand for 5 years.
Overstayed for 60 months (5 years or more) -   Not allowed to enter Thailand for 10 years.

2. If the police find you, they will arrest you, and you will be subject to a longer ban on entering Thai Kingdom.

Overstayed less than 12 months  - Not allowed to enter Thailand for 5 years.
Overstayed more than 12 months - Not allowed to enter Thailand for 10 years.

Why Do People Overstay Their Visa?

The fines that come with an overstay are usually very little, some foreigners just don't care, and will pay the fine when they exit the country. It's 500 baht per day, up to 20000 Thai baht.

Many younger people like teachers or travelers might be just very forgetful about their overstay date, and they don't realize that at immigration they will be caught out. If you are travelling, subject to your visa, you can get a visa extension. Just be very mindful.

Some people are just hiding, maybe they are on the run, and easy option is to hide out in the sticks and overstay. Hopefully these guys will be flushed out sooner or later.

Many old people use there pensions and go to Thailand to see out their retirement. Usually meeting a younger Thai girlfriend (which becomes their carer). The problem is that many will go to the sticks, and many are very old so don't realize that they have overstayed. Or they do know and they just don't care.

Conclusion About Overstay in Thailand 2016

The rules for the overstay that take effect on the 20th March 2016 are great. They can flush out all the illegals, and hopefully make Thailand a better place overall.

Usually family tourists won't be affected by this rule, as they are with family, and need to get home. Younger travelers need to be more mindful and check their visa's for the exit date.

With the immigration crisis in Europe, foreigners should be more considerate when thinking about overstaying. Everyone knows that you shouldn't do it, so don't.

Thai Court Gives Channel 3 Host Sorayuth 13 Year Prison Sentence

Popular Channel 3 Host Sorayuth Has 13 Year Prison Sentence

Sorayuth Suthassanachinda was sentenced today by the Thai Criminal Court. His company financial officer was also sentenced to the same prison term. This comes after his company Rai Som were found guilty of corruption against the State owned company MCOT PLC.

They cheated the state of 138 million baht in 2005 and 2006. This long court room drama came to an end which today, with the Criminal Court justifiably giving them long term prison sentences.


The Rai company were found guilty of hiding money from MCOT (government owned), upwards of 138 million baht, and failed to notify their partners of about this money.

'The NACC said in its lawsuit that in June 2003, MCOT contracted Sorayuth to be the daily host for its Thueng Luk Thueng Khon news programme on TV Channel 9 for 5,000 baht an episode.'
The program that Sorayuth was host of, Thueng Luk Thueng Khon News, was a popular TV Show. With that brought high advertising revenues. Which brought in a lot of money, in turn Sorayuth and the financial manager Rai Som, failed to declare this money to MCOT - hence MCOT losing out on their share of advertising revenue.

They were both taken to court and had charges against them from the Anti Corruption Commission of Thailand. Sorayuth and mis financial manager will go to prison today, with no option of early release.

Man U V Arsenal 2016 Premiership

Football Highlights From The BPL Premiership

This weekend saw two of the most dramatic games of the season. With Manchester United visiting Arsenal, and Liverpool playing Man City in the Capital One Cup Final 2016.

The first game was a '5-goal-thriller'. With Man U still chasing 4th position, and Arsenal still fighting to get to number 1 and win the league.

Man U have had a turbulent season so far, and the midweek's game was probably the game they needed to give them confidence after winning 5 - 1 against Midtjylland in the Europa League. This game also saw the debut of young home grown player Rashford. Rashord's debut was a dream come true for him after scoring 2 goals for United, and sealing them a postion in the final 16. Which they have been drawn against Liverpool.

Back to United V Arsenal. Not much to say apart from them winning 3 - 2 against the almighty Arsenal. They certainly are beginning to prove themselves, but unfortunately this has come a bit late as its nearing the end of the season. Rashford again scored two goals for United, and is beginning to shine like a star. Come on you reds!

And if the fans thought the manager was boring, well Van Gaal sent the internet into a storm, with memes. He fall to floor to show to the referee that Arsenal were diving.


It seems Liverpool are destined never to win a cup again. Yesterday saw the final of the Capital One Cup with Liverpool playing Arsenal for this trophy.

Unfortunately it came down to penalties and City just about nailed it to become The Capital One Cup Winners of 2016

Willy Caballero was City's unlikely hero after saving 3 penalties and becoming a stand out 'understudy' keeper of the season. Joe Hart was unavailable, so Pellegrini gave Caballero another chance after his lack-luster performance against Chelsea in the Premiership one week before.

Liverpool boss Klopp was not happy and stated he felt like shit. But 'thats the way the cookie crumbles' for Liverpool, no matter how hard they try, no matter what they do, they always seem to lose out. IS there hope for Liverpool anymore? Who knows! But well done Man City. You gave Pellegrini something to smile about as he completes his final season at Man city.
