Following a meeting with state agencies on the problem, Sompol Panmanee said His Majesty was concerned about the big waves that had hit people's homes and government facilities along the southeast coastline.

Good. That'll teach moronic tourists to behave and respect the culture of the country they're throwing up in.

Queen: Speak up against killings



Her Majesty the Queen yesterday urged the entire Kingdom to condemn the violence and brutality in the restive south and act against it.

"We cannot sit still anymore. It is not right [to allow the violence]. We should condemn it to show our dissatisfaction at such actions,"

"I think Thai people all over the country should express their views and opinions that it is absolutely wrong to kill other people, notably the elderly and women who cannot protect themselves,"

"We should do something, like the gathering of people with me today. We should express our views via radio, television or letters to tell the militants to stop, otherwise they could turn our country into an uncivilised society in which they can kill anybody, anytime," she said. "We have to stop the violence now, it's enough,"

"I know there are many bad people everywhere but it is our duty not to allow them to do such bad things. They can kill people and officials cannot bring them down? That's not the right thing and not honourable for our nation,"

HM the Queen urged people, especially in Bangkok, to take action against the violence. It was Her Majesty's first plea this year amid no signs of an end to the violence.

Queen supports medical care for violent victims in South

SONGKHLA, Feb 9 (TNA) - Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand has granted more financial aid to a hospital here in support of medical treatment for patients victimised by the violence plaguing the country's Muslim-majority deep South.

HM the Queen has donated personal money to Songkhlanagarind Hospital for this purpose six times -- beginning early last year, hospital director Dr. Sumeth Peerawud said Friday, without giving details of
the amount of funds the Queen has dispensed.

"She desires that the donated money be spent for medical expenses incurred when patients with violence-related injuries are admitted at hospital," Dr. Sumeth said, "to ensure the best medical treatment for them."

HM the King allows Tanzania to use rain-making technology


His Majesty the King
has granted permission for drought-stricken Tanzania to use his patented rain-making technique, Agriculture Minister Theera Sutabutr said Wednesday.


The Agriculture Ministry will dispatch its officials to demonstrate the technique and transfer technology to Tanzanian officials, the minister said.

The east-African nation asked Thailand for help and the Royal Household Bureau informed the ministry His Majesty had granted permission for the technology transfer, he said.


His Majesty has advised the ministry to map the country and build a database of wind patterns, Thira said.

Experts will travel to Tanzania this month armed with geographical information provided by its government.

There they will train Tanzanian officials to make artificial rain.

Other countries have expressed interest in using His Majesty's techniques.

His Majesty was granted a patent for his "super-sandwich" rainmaking" technique which uses aircraft to "seed" with chemicals warm and cold clouds at different altitudes. It is unique because it creates rain in specific areas.

Detial of Royal Pavillion at EWC

Construction of a traditional Thai sala (pavilion), donated to the East-West Center (EWC) by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, is nearing completion. The new sala is replacing an older one bestowed on the Center by His Majesty in 1967, the first Royal sala to be constructed outside Thailand.

< copyright image removed >

The sala is located mauka of the Hawaii Imin International Conference Center at Jefferson Hall on the EWC campus.

William Feltz, coordinator of the EWC’s Arts Program, says “Over the years, the original sala began to show signs of normal wear and tear. Instead of attempting to repair it, the Thai Government’s Fine Arts Ministry and His Majesty decided to present the Center with a new, more elaborate, sala. We are extremely pleased to have this beautiful new structure.”
The new sala was designed by Dr. Pinyo Suwankiri, a professor at Bangkok’s prestigious Chulalongkorn University, a Fellow of the Royal Institute, and the foremost designer of traditional structures in Thailand. First assembled in Bangkok, and made of teak and native rosewood, the new sala was taken apart piece-by-piece and shipped to the EWC in Honolulu. A team of six Thai artisans and a Thai engineer, accompanied by Dr. Pinyo, traveled to Hawaii to oversee the dismantling of the old sala and construction of the new one. The colorful pavilion, featuring ornately carved designs, sweeping rooftop cho fa, mirrors, and His Majesty’s seal, will be officially dedicated early next year on the occasion of the visit to Hawaii of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.

The East-West Center contributes to a peaceful, prosperous and just Asia Pacific community by serving as a vigorous hub for cooperative research, education and dialogue on critical issues of common concern to the Asia Pacific region and the United States.

Queen undergoes hand operation

Her Majesty Queen Sirikit will undergo an operation at a Bangkok hospital to release fascia in the middle finger, according to a statement released by the Bureau of the Royal Household.

Her Majesty has stiffness of the joints in the middle finger of her left hand.

Previously Her Majesty was treated and recovered after medication and physical therapy, but the problem has recurred. Orthopaedists agreed to perform surgery to cure her condition.

The Queen was to undergo the operation at Phramonkutklao Hospital on Thursday.

The attending physicians said that Her Majesty must recuperate for two weeks after the operation, according to the statement. (TNA)

Bangkok Post Breaking News

Queen resting after surgery on her hand

Her Majesty the Queen had an operation on her left hand at Phra Mongkutklao hospital yesterday to treat a locked middle finger, a statement from the Royal Household Bureau said. His Majesty the King visited her at the hospital after the operation.

Her Majesty has been advised to rest for two weeks.

The Queen has experienced occasional stiffness in the middle finger of her left hand, a condition known as lock finger.

Her condition improved considerably after she had physical therapy and took medication.

But the finger became stiff again, causing difficulty in her activities.

Orthopaedic surgeons agreed the Queen needed an operation to loosen fibrotic tissue around the finger tendons.

Lock finger is caused by a disorder in the sheath covering tendons that connect the muscles of the forearm with the bones of the fingers.

Daily activities such as carrying heavy objects can cause the sheath to expand and this blocks the movement of the tendons.

Bangkok Post : General news

Accompanied by her daughters and granddaughters, HM the Queen arrived at the hospital at around 5pm yesterday

Shortly before 6pm, His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej also arrived at the hospital to visit his queen and take her back to the palace.

Hello there, I am from Phnom Penh Cambodia, I've seen all the pictures that you post in here, I am very enjoy all of them, I am very interesting about the Royal of the World, I've been alots of place in your country and had the good relatioship with your people there.
I want to share the Opinion between the both Cultural of our country and the similarites, I am thinking about the King which is ruled the Suvannaphumi, The King Jayavarman VII,....etc and if anyone can make the computerise designation about His Image and put in this forum to show people of the Europe,and the world , i would like to describe about His originated and his population in this forum also.
Actually we're both are sharing the similarities culturalisme, and i've seen mostly people at your country are closely triber to Cambodian, i am not doubt because there are the Khmere ethnicities live at Thailand also. I am excited because Cambodia, Laos and Thailand were Influenced by the Indian culture, an the civilazation is indianization literature....etc, the achitectural and religion very excelent.
I remeber one script of the Bhuda said "My fellow, All the tree in the forest"Pradesh" are exactly not the equal, it's tallest and shortest ".
I've seen in Cambodia they'd make the image of the King without arm an sell it around the world, i am stunned ! but after i am sorry and emagine to the people's heart Why they couldn't make the beautiful and charming of His Image today it's meaningless for they make like the broken original one???? Bhuda bless you
