Songkran is wet and wild once again

Seems like entire Kingdom converges on Pattaya for one last hurrah

With the “rest” of the Kingdom celebrating the annual Songkran water fest a week earlier, once again this year it seemed as though the entire Kingdom converged on Pattaya, Naklua and Jomtien for one last chance to go wild with water for this year’s Songkran celebrations.

Pattaya Cricket teams missed the ‘Cut’ in Chiang Mai

Two Pattaya teams joined the fray at the 17th Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes: Kim Fletcher’s “Shenanigans Malakas” and Rob Roberts’ “The Living Dolls”. In spite - or, perhaps, because of - a great innings by Kim who stayed at bat for the total match early in the week-long “cricket fest”, and a solid ‘knock’ for 31 (retired) by Rob, both teams were eliminated. But they will both be back next year.
