This is a unique year for District 3340 Rotary International as DG Rachnee is the first lady governor since the formation of this district in the 1992-93 Rotary year.

Pattaya Vegetarian Festival sizzles in opening

It takes a lot of hands, and some big skillets, to feed 5,000 people, but organizers of the Pattaya Vegetarian Festival had it covered again this year in Naklua.  Shown here, Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome and Banglamung District Chief Sakchai Taengho help the “master chefs” create this batch of delicious heavenly rice. The festival comes to a conclusion today, Oct. 3.

The Sawang Boriboon Foundation knows the secret to good cooking is once that you have a popular recipe, don’t change it. It takes the same approach to its annual Pattaya Vegetarian Festival.

It was a quieter Friday and Saturday in Pattaya as typical party nights were transformed into evenings for religious reverence for Asalaha Bucha Day and the start of Buddhist Lent.

Born on July 4, 1957, Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Walailak is the youngest daughter of Their Majesties King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great and Queen Sirikit of Thailand. She has two daughters, HRH Princess Siribhachudhabhorn and HRH Princess Adityadhornkitikhun.

On the morning of Thursday the 19th of July a religious ceremony was held to mark the auspicious occasion of the opening of the Swedish Consul office within the grounds of the Dusit Thani Hotel.

Pattaya-area Buddhists circle Wat Nong Or, performing the Wien Thien ceremony on Visakha Bucha Day May 13.  Throughout the kingdom, this most holy of holidays on the Buddhist calendar marks the triple occasion of the birth of Buddha, the day of his enlightenment and his ascension to Nirvana.

Area residents bid farewell to the year’s Songkran festivities with traditional rice festivals and “Kong Khao” ceremonies in Naklua and Nong Yai.

Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome was the master of ceremonies at Lan Po Park in Naklua as locals and tourists gathered for games, including slingshots, seaside Muay-Thai, “little girls falling in water,” and oily post climbing.

Scorching heat and foreboding clouds couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm of Pattaya-area residents and tourists as they brought the annual Songkran festival to a water-soaked close.
