This is just my opinion. Today's ruling on the Thaksin case will have ramifications in the financial sector of Thailand.Basically, the government's case is that Thaksin whilst in office as Prime Minister used his position to favour the company his children and relatives held shares in - Shin Corp. Some of the facts about Shin Corp share price gains:Shin Corp shares gained some 121 percent between the period of Feb 9, 2001, when Thaksin took office to when he sold it on Jan 23 2006.By comparison

Just got this out of Bloomberg. It will be interesting to see how the court will rule....Thailand Braces for Court Ruling, Further Unrest (Update1)
By En-Lai Yeoh and Beth JinksMay 29 (Bloomberg) -- The Thai government's effort to destroy the political power of ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra may worsen the country's political instability.

A witness who saw it told them who it was - it was actually a boy her sister knew.Any way, this thief immediately traded the bike in for $8000 bahts to an illegal gambling house, which he promptly lost. So he ran off and disappeared.But before he did, he provided details and telephone number of my gf's sister.So the owner of the illegal gambling den, decided to call up my gf's sister demanding repayment of $8000 bahts plus interest of 1
Another trip has just ended.
I am tired and exhausted.
I can't wait to get home to catch up on my sleep - another 5 hours to go before my plane arrives at Melbourne airport - can't come too soon!!!
Still I am relieved and happy with this business trip.
I had started this trip with a bit of trepidation, afterall, 2008 was one hell of a year for businesses and investments.
I was expecting the worst, but was pleasantly surprised to see that my biggest client has weathered the storm.
I was ev

The last time I was there, there were lots of police and military men with guns.
Thanks for any advice.

Oh what a day it was yesterday in Brisbane.Anything that could have possibly gone wrong did, except for my meeting with my client.My day started with me waking up late and in my rush to get out of the hotel room, I forgot to bring my map of Brisbane with me. I only realised this when I was half way into my journey when streets and buildings started to look strangely unfamiliar.In my panic, I started to reach for my map but that was nowhere to be found.Now, I was in a frantic state. I knew I ha
