Bangkok CIty-Silom-Ratchaprasong

By RataJIT:)
Actually, Ratajit would say that Thai people is really excellent. Meanwhile of the protestation of Red Shirt, we are still in peace, we still stand with the DANGEROUS caused by these Red Shirt Protestants, and so on.
Nearly one month with more than 20 bombs happened in Bangkok and countless of guns. Today, Ratajit has a chance to go to Silom and Ratchaprasong where are now very silent if compared with last 2 months.

Such places are included with many offices or are the heart center of Bangkok. Ratajit sees only few taxis and bus. People in Lalaisup market are also sparse. Moreover, the Bangkok Mass Transit system – BTS is stopped as well to prevent some uncertain events affect. It means that our Thailand’s economic is also silent too which is not the good sign for us although the exportation value is increased.

Ratajit feels safety when seeing some soldiers and polices instead of Red Shirt. By the way, these soldiers should protect our country from the enemies not from our Thai people. As well, the police should prevent us from the bad guys not Thai in Red.

However! It does not have time left, because the school will be start on this Monday 18 especially around the Ratchaprasong and Silom Road. All schools around here have to postpone to open on Jun 1, instead. Ratajit wonders that these leaders of the Red Shirt may not have their children, may have nothing to do, may always feel lonely and want to stay with many people, may…..

Mark Abhisit Apisit Vejjajiva
Our Thailand PM Abhisit Vejjajiva who is under pressure has already done what these Red Shirt requests since May 8 with useless. These Red Shirt still ask for more and more over what they used to committed. Actually, Thai people are really upset to what the Red Shirt did. And, because we are Thai who have the same father or our King Bhumipol, many songs are produced for peace, for our King, for our Thailand and ourselves.
Ratajit would like to see Ratprasong like in the past with light and sound and good economic!
Ratchaprasong-On the road, Bangkok, Thailand

Some words from a present song: สู่ความสงบสันติสามัคคี
ร่วมใจ กันทำความดีถวายพ่อหลวงของไทย
………..ผ่าน พ้นมันไปยิ่งรักกันมากกว่าเดิม

Red shirt protesters threaten Chulalongkorn Hospital

By RataJIT:)
I got this news from TV and Posttoday newspaper on Apr 30, 2010 about many Thai people condemn ~ 100 Red Shirt guys who attack Chulalongkorn Hospital. Their bad acts threaten the sicks especially the heart sick patience.
I don’t understand that the police come really late about one hour after this attack and cannot stop them as well. Some nurses and doctors told via TV that “Why these Red Shirt men can do as they like, can check all people’s belongings as they want even doctors, nurses, officers, patience and their relatives. Anyone who looks from the hospital’s window will be lighted the eyes by laser flashlight….”
This is the most pity scene for Thai people to see all patience including the heavy ones have to be moved from Chulalongkorn Hospital to Siriraj hospital instead. Chulalongkorn Hospital in named of King Rama the Fifth since 1914 s now a desert hospital left only one patience who is our Patriarch. All want to see Bangkok as in the past before Mar 12, 2010.

Thailand and Freedom of Speech

The American people would love to see the Freedom of Speech around the world as they have. They blame other countries who do not have it. And right now they blame Thailand of Freedom of Speech about monarchy. Some American friends I have do not really care or love their own country, but they are proud in their American behaviors, until some people are proud to consume too much. Thai culture is really different. They grow up with their parents, and they really look after their parents when they get older. Thai King and Thai Queen are father and mother of all Thai people. Thai people really feel it that way. No one are forced to love them. This is the reason why we cannot let other people blame them.

Thai children and their mother at the Talingchan Floating Market (ตลาดน้ำตลิ่งชัน).

If you really grow up with a warm family, you will love your parents although they have never asked you to love them. You will do the same thing as we do for our King and our Queen. You will protect them. If some other people disgrace them, you will hire a judge to stop those people. The United States have the law to prevent public insulting, too, and that stops freedom of bad speech. This means we are almost the same. You cannot insult other people with strange Photoshop pictures and unreal words.

Do you know why Thai people love the King?
Thai King, and most of Royal Family have the charity activities nearly everyday. They always go to the far-away towns or villages which are poor. They teach the poor people to work, especially agriculture and handmade products. When any places are destroyed by flood damage and if the government is so slow to help, the Royal Family will help all the people in time.

As the definition of ‘Efficient Economy’ which Thai King always talks about, although the farmer earn a low income, but they can live with happiness. Most of Thai farmers are not that poor until have nothing to eat, but they spend their money without thinking. For example, they want to have cars to show that they are cool; they need to have an i-phone because their friends have it. The farmers who need the extravagant things will not love what the King teach. This is the reason why there are many Red Shirt farmers come to protest in Bangkok.

Although the American believe in freedom, but all the children also love their parents.

The fear of Anti-Communism in Thailand 2010s

Have you ever heard of “The fear of Communism in the 1950s” and stuff like McCarthyism? American people are really afraid of communism, because they really know what it is. Many American public schools may not included that the situation of Cold War are much serious, but smart American will know it by themselves.

In Thailand, the history books have never said anything bad about communism, because China and Russia are our friends. Thai people also do not really worry about communism, too. They believe that it will never happen in Thailand. Communist Party of Thailand was founded in the same era of Cold War about 1940’s. Nothing was successful in that period. A Thai old history professor in my middle school had a really solid faith. She said that Thailand cannot be Communist, but it was the first year of Thaksin Government, so she did not know how he was.

Thai flag defines 3 things by its colors which are Red is Nation, White is Religion and Blue is King. All the three are the main institutes which have been with Thailand since the Sukhothai kingdom in 1200’s century. Communist has no Nation, no Religion and no King. This is the reason why Thailand had never been afraid of Communism.

Thai Flag with striped 3 colors, influenced from European in WWI.

Currently (Spring 2010), the power of money comes before these three institutes. Thai people are pretty sure that the Red Shirt protesters are paid to against Abhisit Government. A few Thai people in England were paid to make the website against Thai monarchy, and government. Many English-speakers do not really understand what happens, so they believe those posts. In fact, Thai Kings have been prevents the country from communists and soldier dictators. They really love their country, and its concept. The word, “Thai” means “Freedom”. Communist dictator will never give freedom to its people.

Sw is really feel sorry about the Red Shirt, and I would like to forgive them once they realize that they have been wrong. They are known as uneducated and farmers. They can make more money by protesting rather than by their farms. This does not mean all the farmers in Thailand are the Red Shirt Protester, and does not mean that Red farmers produce red rice, and other normal farmers produce white rice (Laugh). They do not really know what really going on, and what will be the result of their protesting. Their leaders always use ambiguous words to bend they thought to be the same way. Moreover, the Red Shirts are really sensitive when they see Thaksin cries online. There are many rumors say that Thaksin currently has a serious cancer, but Thaksin always confirms that he is so happy with his family. Logically, if the Red Shirt protesters do not really get the money, they will hate to burn themselves under the hottest sun, while Thaksin says that he is really happy.

God of the Money or Money is God for many people. Egyptian bills do have their ancient God as their country’s identity, although most of them are Islamic, not the Ra worship. You will see Horus supports pharaoh in here.

The fear of Anti-Communism in Thailand is if the Red-Shirts completed their goals. Thailand would be communist-like democratic under the power of one dictator. The dictator would pay for all poor people to vote him, and he would get the highest vote forever. He would use law to support his own business, and also many kinds of corruption from both him and his party would happen.

Some foreigners understand that Abhisit did not get elected to be Prime Minister, so they hate him. In fact, Abhisit will be elected if the poor people were not paid to vote. Thai people vote for members of the House of Representatives by regions. In the suburban from Bangkok where is the area of middle class people, Democrat Party – Abhisit Vejjajiva always gets the most votes. Likely, the Democrat Party’s main base of support is in Bangkok, by the educated people and office workers.

For all the foreigners’ misunderstanding about Abhisit and Thai democratic system, if all those people still keep paying the poor to vote, we will never have the real democracy.

In fact, the red shirt can have a happy life without a large amount of money. Everything has it own way to solve and to understand as long as you know what the most important thing of your life is.

Red-Shirt Protest in Thailand

By RataJIT:)
Currently, RataJit as well as everyone in Thailand can get only one news from many newspapers that REAL Thai people are not happy with the serious situation from Red Shirt protest especially in Bangkok.
Firstly, we hopes to see every side either the government or red-shirt can finish by negotiation. By the way, red-shirt themselves upset such negotiation. As well, from Posttoday news on Apr 11, 2010 on page #2, red-shirt suddenly changes their requirement from dissolving the parliament within 15 days to today. Moreover, they want PM Abhisit to get out from Thailand which normally should be only an accused person like Thaksin who is in criminal case from court judge.

Secondly, many Thai people dislike the violent act because we love PEACE. The red-shirt force our government has to subdue them because they intend to block the economic areas of Thailand. Furthermore, in Kom-Shud-luk newspaper on the same day on page #1, a photo presented some red-shirt vilely treated a solider like the uncivilized – not like Thai people.
Thirdly, Apr 14 on Posttoday again, the red-shirt attacked a chauffeur in his yellow taxi and accused him to be a yellow-shirt just because he drove his yellow taxi. If all New Yorker Taxi -all in yellow – come here, RataJit can guess nothing will happen. As well, the red-shirt also hurt a lady who just drives through them to back home or to work.

All current clashes in Thailand should be endless if a guy who always sends his VDO link will stop his action……. at least to compensate to our country where he was born and used to be rich from here. He is the fuel to force Thai kill Thai ourselves!

Finally, RataJit hope to see all holy things and Budha bless Thailand to be free from all bad things again!
Ayuttahaya: Wat YaiChaiMongkol

PS: One day, after seeing the VDO link from Thaksin, RataJit wonders about the red-shirt’s feeling. Thaksin said that he had traveled with his daughter in Russia during the time many red-shirt persisted for him and did severely to Thai people!

เรื่องอภิสิทธิ์ – บนถนน Abhisit on the Road– Police on Bangkok Road

By RataJIT:)
เรื่องที่สามเป็นเรื่องที่จิตรจะเล่าต่อไปนี้เกี่ยวข้องกับตำรวจบนท้องถนน โดยมีวัตถุประสงค์เพื่อแบ่งปันประสบการณ์สัก 3 เรื่องพอหอมปากหอมคอ และเป็นคนละสถานที่กันในกรุงเทพฯ นี่เองค่ะ อย่างไรก็ตามขอบอกว่าจิตรไม่ได้มีอคติกับตำรวจเลย เพราะตำรวจหลายนายก็ดี และน่ารักมาก จิตรเองให้ของขวัญตำรวจทุกวันปีใหม่ ทำมาประมาณสิบกว่าปีแล้วจนถึงปัจจุบัน เพราะรู้ว่าต่างทำงานกันเหนื่อยและต้องอดทนมากด้วยค่ะ
On the road, Bangkok, Thailand

สมัยที่จิตรทำงานแถวราชประสงค์และต้องอาศัยเส้นถนนวิทยุ – Wireless Road ทุกเย็น ซึ่งไม่ต้องบอกทุกคนในกรุงเทพฯ ก็พอนึกกันออกว่าแถวนั้นรถติดมหาโหด จันทร์เย็นวันหนึ่ง รถติดมากจริง ๆ ค่อย ๆ ขยับกันทีละคัน ทีละนิด และอยู่ ๆ ก็ไฟแดง แต่จิตรเพิ่งเลี้ยวขวาจากสวนลุมมาซึ่งไกลเกินกว่าจะเห็นไฟแดงตรงสี่แยกสะพานไทย-เบลเยี่ยม วันนั้นมีรถอยู่ 3- 4 คันจอดพอดีบนเครื่องหมาย “อย่าทับหนู” คันแรกคือรถปิ๊คอัพเก่า ๆ โดยคนขับท้าวศอกวางที่ขอบหน้าต่าง คันที่สองเป็นรถเบ้นซ์ คันที่สามคือรถของจิตรเองเจ้าคะ และคันต่อไปเป็นปิ๊คอัพเช่นกัน ตำรวจผอม ๆ สูง ๆ นายหนึ่งตรงมาเลยค่ะ จะมาจับจิตรโดยกล่าวหาว่าฝ่าฝืนกฎจราจร เพราะหยุดรถในที่ห้ามหยุด เถียงกันสักพักเพราะจิตรไม่เห็นไฟแดง รถคันหน้า ๆ บังหมด ในที่สุดจิตรจึงบอกว่าถ้าเก่งจริงไปจับรถ 2 คันหน้าให้ได้ก่อน ไม่ใช่คิดแต่จะมาจับคันที่ผู้หญิงขับ…….. สุดท้ายนายตำรวจคนนั้นก็จับใครไม่ได้เลยค่ะ

อภิสิทธิ์ – บนถนน About Abhisit – Police on Bangkok Road

เรื่องที่สองเกิดตอนที่จิตรทำงานแถวพหลโยธิน และต้องผ่านสามแยกดินแดงทุกเช้าเพื่อเลี้ยวซ้ายไปอนุเสาวรีย์ชัยสมรภูมิ ซึ่งโดยปกติก็เลี้ยวได้เลยเพราะเลี้ยวซ้ายผ่านตลอดค่ะ แต่เช้าวันนั้นจิตรกำลังจะเลี้ยวซ้าย อยู่ ๆ รถเมล์ที่จะเลี้ยวขวาก็จอดขวางเพราะติดสัญญาณไฟแดงพอดี จิตรจึงจอดรถอยู่ในเลนส์ซ้ายอยู่อย่างนั้นรอจนกว่าจะไฟเขียว รถมอเตอร์ไซด์หลายคันที่จะเลี้ยวซ้ายก็ขับชิดรถของจิตรไปกันได้หมด ขณะนั้นมีมอเตอร์ไซด์ตำรวจคล้ายช็อปเปอร์ ซึ่งใหญ่กว่ามอเตอร์ไซด์ปกติจึงไม่สามารถขับไปได้ นายตำรวจไม่ยอมค่ะ และก็ไม่มีความอดทนพอ จึงใช้วิธีขยับมอเตอร์ไซด์มากระแทกกันชนท้ายของจิตร แล้วก็ขับมอเตอร์ไซด์หักขวามาหยุดตรงประตูคนขับ จากนั้นก็เคาะกระจกข้างคนขับอย่างแรงเพื่อให้จิตรเปิดกระจก พอจิตรเปิดกระจกลง นายตำรวจผู้นั้นก็ด่าใส่เลยค่ะ และใช้คำไม่สุภาพ เช่น “มึง…” จนพวกมอเตอร์ไซด์คันอื่น ๆ ที่จอดรอไฟเขียวมองและฟังอย่างตั้งอกตั้งใจกันใหญ่
O-Key ค่ะถ้าตำรวจอยากหาเรื่องผู้หญิงอย่างจิตรก็ได้ จิตรจำเป็นต้องเถียงเพราะจิตรทำตามกฎจราจรทุกอย่าง ในเมื่อไปไม่ได้ ในเมื่อรถของนายตำรวจผู้นี้ใหญ่ผิดปกติ ในเมื่อคุณพูดจากหยาบคาย จะมาหาเรื่องกันแต่เช้าได้ไง และอยากรู้จริง ๆ ว่าถ้าเป็นผู้ชายขับรถอยู่ กล้ามะ?? จนตอนหลังจิตรต้องพูดประโยคสุดท้ายว่าจะโทรแจ้งประกันที่คุณมาชนท้ายรถของจิตร โดยมีมอเตอร์ไซด์แถวนั้นยอมเป็นพยานให้ นายตำรวจนายนั้นไม่รู้จะทำอย่างไรจึงต้องขับไปค่ะ จิตรส่งท้ายด้วยคำว่า “หน้าตัวxxx”

อย่างไรก็ตาม เพื่อน ๆ ควรมีธรรมะอยู่ในใจ และเราจะมีจิตใจที่สงบ ไม่ว่านายตำรวจคนนี้ส่งท้ายแบบจิตรนะคะ

Grand Palace and Grand Temple, Bangkok, Thailand

The place where all people around the world wish to visit once in their life, and the place where all the visitors of Thailand must go to see. It is may be because Sw Eden was born Thai, that I feel Thai tradition artwork is the most beautiful ancient artwork in the world. Sw Eden feels some other country artwork is too fat or too thin, but Thai artwork is the proper proportion. You may feel that why there is a lot of gold in there. This is seem incredible that Thailand have much much gold in all Temples around the country.

In the high-school history class, Sw’s teacher talked about a famous painting of an ancient Thai ambassador and French king. The French king really appreciated how polite of that Thai ambassador so he let the artist drew the picture of the Thai ambassador in the throne hall. Two paintings were drawn, and one of them was given to Thailand. Thailand lost it when Myanmar destroyed Ayutthaya about 200 years ago. Myanmar burnt Thai pagoda and palace, then took the gold back to their country. One of my friend in the class said that the painting was a part of that gold Myanmar took off the palace, so right now, we could see that canvas painting on Myanmar pagoda. This is a little joke of a little Southern girl said in the class room which Sw Eden can remember so well.

If you are a tourist, you may think that it is a good opportunity to have a good time with your camera and your friends in Grand Temple and Grand Palace. For us, Thai people, these places is not only the places that we are proud, but they are also what we respect. We respect our religion and our king. Although most of us are Buddhism, we welcome all other cults around the world. There is no law/rule that anyone have to believe in only one religion.

How to get to here? Most of the buses in Bangkok can drop you in front of the Grand Temple, and all the taxi drivers know how to come here. Please no worry to lose your way. Around the Sanam Luang you can find the information desks, and they can give you a free map to show the important place to visits by walking. If you are Thai, you still have right to get the map, too. Our city does not align as block as New York City, so you may need to bring a little lovely compass with you to get the right direction from the map.

Thai Sluts /Whore : Why do they fuck?

Three reasons for Thai prostitutes to have sex with the guys.
1. They are so poor, and they and their families need to eat.
2. The gangsters force them to do.
3. The teenagers like to waste money so fast, so they want to make money so fast, too.

1. They are so poor, and they and their families need to eat.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
The poor women who cannot find any other jobs also need to eat, and their families need to eat, too. This problems can have everywhere in the world, not only in Thailand. A friend of my friend had to prostitute herself because her mother got cancer. She was just a college student and she had no money. Her father did not be with her anymore. (I can say that most of Thai guys are not different from other countries, they like to have second wife. Thailand does not have a law as in USA that the ex-husband has to pay for his ex-wife.) Lastly she got HIV. I am so sorry for her, a nice daughter. I did talk with my friends about her. If anyone is in this situation, he/she should as other people for help rather than just hurting oneself. The mass media always love to help everyone. If there is really no way to do other things, they said that she should have let her mother died, because her mother would be so sad to see her daughter got HIV or being slut.

One of Thai Christian pedagogues I know went down into a brothel. He asked a slut why that have to work right here, and she answered that she was poor. These women do not have opportunity to meet nice people or high-class people. Most of them actually use many rude words. Some are nice to talk with, too. My music teacher had worked on coping illegal albums in Patpong, and he has a lot of slut friends. After that he just did something so opposite, that is he became a music teacher in Catholic school, and I was his student. In fact, Patpong is just one block away from that school. The afternoon and the evening are so different. We can walk as the students or businessmen in the afternoon, and if we are good enough, we have to escape at night. 😀

2. The gangsters force them to do.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Unbelievable, Thailand still has a lot of Gangsters (abducting) as well as Japan has a lot of Yakuza gangs. Many times, they abduct Thai girls into the vans and sell them to other countries around Thailand. This also reflect in some Thai country music. Mike Piromporn sang that The evil yakusa drunken his girlfriend and force her to prostitute for their money.

All are just like in the movie that the police cannot disturb some big gangsters. All movies were token based on the reality. That is where the idea comes from. The gangsters do not catch the girls only for being sluts, but they also kidnap the children and cut out their arms and legs, and push them to be beggar. They dropped these poor kids on the street in the morning, and took them back at night. They can make a lot of money from this hell business.

Another way to force a girl to prostitute herself is taking the video of first-time raping, and then threaten her to continue next videos. Most of the girls are shy and scared to tell the police. Or they get detained in the windowless rooms. They may make the girls to be drug addict, and those girls have to do whatever for the drug.

3. The teenagers like to waste money so fast, so they want to make money so fast, too.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The last reason is for the happy teenagers who love to be whores, because they waste money very fast. At Siam Center, Bangkok, many teenagers decorate their old shirts and trousers to sell to other teenagers on the street. When they get the money, they just walk into the stores and get the new things. Some teenagers think that this way to get the money is very slow. The prize of a shirt is just 100 bahts. If they were whores, they could earn 1,000 baht an hour.

Some parents do not care, and most parents do not know. This down-hell economy, all people get less money. The teenagers cannot live only with the food, but they want a luxurious life with brand-name goods, and some want to decorate their boyfriends’ motorcycle. If you walk on the street at night in Bangkok (some areas), you will see groups of girls waiting for their customers. Almost are pretty, as you know, almost Thai girls are so pretty. For example, comparing between New York subway and Thai subway, in the same capacity of subway car, Thailand has more beautiful girl than New York.

Many foreigners got confused between bad girls and good girls in Thailand. Some of them think that all women in Thailand are sluts. The middle class people do not teach their children to be sluts. They are all educated, and they have good places to work. Most of them work in office, and some own the business. The past government did some mistake about promoting Thailand. Thai government usually promotes the adventures in Thailand. The visitors always love to do journal into the ocean, do the hiking, float the boat in a dangerous water fall, camping and dancing around bonfire. Wow! I love that, too. One of those people in the past, did promote prostitution in Thailand, and after that Thailand is so well-known about this worst thing.

Sw Eden’s hand Drawing in Subway : Hideto Matsumoto (Hide)

Online whores still exist. The information they give online are the nick-name, height, weight, personal identity, ethnic, photo, body-shape, age, level of education, and they do not tell exactly where they study, but they say the location of their school; so people can guess very easy. Almost sweet, cute and love to dress up. I bet they are cuter than Japanese porn-star. They are much much cuter and younger than those Thai women you search via search engine. The prize is about 2,000-5,000 bahts, which is different from those on the street with the prize 500-1,000 bahts. I am not their supporter, and I do not want Thailand to be just like this. If half of teenagers did porn, how Thailand can grow up to be developed country. I love my country. I will talk about the part of bad boys later.

Green Architecture Design

5 years ago, I walk into the field of architecture with my best skill of artist and my proud knowledge from Mahidol Wittayanusorn school of science. I did not expect anything from this field, but I thought that architecture should have been the easiest way to graduate. Not so long time ago, my meaning of “Architecture” was changed. I saw many under-constructional areas around my village. Those places had been farm before, but then, they were just the surface of concrete and concrete housing.

Kanjanaburi, photo by Sw Eden on Flickr

Thailand is considered as a perfect country which its land can grow almost kinds of agricultural plants, and has a vast area of forest. King Bhumibol Adulyadej has kept teaching people to head to develop agriculture instead of industrial. Thailand is already good at agriculture, but Thai people just need to make it better and greater. Only less number of capitalists can hear what the King says. They have changed green lands to be nongreen buildings to make a lot of money. My family has been one of foolish people who stepped into their traps. 1997, when I was 10 years old, my family moved to their housing, which built on top of a lotus farm. Many city people love to move out from the crowd areas into suburban housing. They escape from traffic-jam streets and high-pollution air. Most of them have to have their own cars to use in rush hour to go to work in the city. They waste the gas/benzine and also waste the material to make the cars.

Moving Car, photo by Sw Eden on Flickr

The happy life with fresh air could not stay with the city people in suburban so long. When the capitalists invested in malls or supermarkets around those housings, the peaceful areas became the expanded city. The air and noise pollution came into the place. The time to move has come again then. The green areas have been destroyed very fast around many cities in Thailand, such as Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Songkla. Most capitalists do not do a green design, because they just want to pay less. They put a beautiful picture of house with a big grass field on the advertising board. We call those boards, “Air Junk”, because they hide all scenery and wind. People pay for those advertising housing projects before seeing the real houses. Most of real-estate projects in Thailand, people need to pay for every step to build a house, not pay for a finished house. The results that they get are small green areas, because most of green areas are cut to be the main circulation of the project, and that is made by concrete.

The expansion of the city may be a good economic sign in the business term or for the government, but in fact, it is a sign of disaster for environment and for an agriculture country as Thailand. The houses, buildings and factory keep releasing heat and toxic into the natural resources. They do not only hurt the nature by themselves, but they are also harmful for the agriculture areas around. Thai Government announced that rain of all province was not drinkable, because it contained very toxic substance. Although the toxic makers are in the city, the toxic can spread around many places, covering the tropical jungle area in Nakornsritummarach, the north east of Thailand.

Sprash Water, Thai Kid, photo by Sw Eden on Flickr

Cathleen McGuigan wrote on NewWeek.com under a topic of “The Bad News About Green Architecture” about the unpleasantness in the design of green building. She described that the green buildings work so good by themselves, but people still have to drive to work. In my opinion, moral is more important than an object. One Bryant Park has a system of recapturing rainwater which is good, but many people who do not pay for the water bill will never think about saving the water. For example, many women always turn on the tap when they are doing their hair in public restrooms, and many men liked to do that when they are shaving. I have visited a company that my parent worked with, and I saw the janitor turn on all taps in the restroom at the same time to clean an individual sink. Moreover, he spilled some detergent on the restroom floor, and he used whole roll of paper towel to absorb it, then he threw that roll away. Paper is made by the trees. If only people waste and kind of material, that is the way they waste the energy, because all manufacture processes have to use the energy. This mean many people cannot change their attitude, if the results do not impact them directly. If we can change their habits, the world will be able to save the energy by this method more than the green design many times.

Not only the gray water system that One Bryant Park has, it also has air-condition ventilator on the floor. Most of buildings in the world have air-condition on the ceiling, which is far from human living space. What One Bryant Park does should be so good during the winter, because people love to feel hotter at their feet and feel colder at their heads.

Green design is enjoyable as people love to hang out in the park. People like the sun rather than a electric bulb. I always cheer the green design, but we have to accept that there is no building in the world can be 100% green. Although the big window can save the electricity used in bulb, the building also lose its heat in the winder through the window about 30 times bigger than the wall. If the office loves to use air-condition so much, the big window can also heat the interior up as the system of greenhouse effect. The better way to save the energy during the summer is using fans and open windows instead of air-condition, but it is still the problem for the offices in the high pollution areas.

Narita Airport Facade, photo by Sw Eden on Flickr

One of the towers of K Bank (Kasikorn) in Thailand uses a special kind of glass for their facade. Its glass does not create greenhouse effect as other towers do. The color of its glasses seems white and can reflect the light very well. It is not dark color that will absorb the heat into the glass itself. Considering about the north pole, Greenland and the south pole, they are not only the cold place to keep the world cold, but they are also big white areas to reflect the heat out from the world. I tried to say that the colors of facade and rooftop are very important, too.

I went to Japan accidentally when the flight to USA was delayed. Narita Airport sent Thai people into its hotel for one night. It was winter at that time. We could not make a far trip, because we did not have Japanese visas. I walked to see its swimming pool. It was surprising me that it was covered by half-sphere glasses, and the water was one of the glass’ layers. The temperature was quite fine. The water can act better than the gas or air space actually. If you are a Bible reader and you can remember the Great Flood (Noah’s Ark), the water was from the sky and that means the planet earth had been surrounded by the water. The water can prevent many kinds of rays from the universe and the sun, and it acts very well in this Japanese swimming pool. The Bible also shows that after the Great Flood, humans’ ages were reduces from 800 to be less than 100 years old. Humans’ genes began to have mistake, because the water-atmosphere was destroyed. Brother and sister could not marry anymore after that time.

For the case of using gray water in flush toilets, I cannot say that the toxic rain may destroy the toilet, and the owners may need to pay more to repair whole things. I had talked with a ship owner when I went to at the south ocean of Thailand. I asked him for the reason that he still used tab water for flush toilets in the ship, because he could get salt water from the sea very easily. He told me that salt water had destroyed his flush toilets before. I cannot fully believe in his words, when I think about how much pH in human’s urine comparing with pH in salt water. The rainwater should not have less pH than human’s urine, too. That’s mean using gray water may be good enough to be considered as a part of green design.

The Gherkin Building in London should be praised, especially its system of natural air ventilation which is created by the tower’s aerodynamic form and ‘double skin’ facade (Hannah Bullock, http://www.forumforthefuture.org.uk, 2003). Moreover it support the biking people by its bicycle service.

For car industry, many new electricity cars were produced, because people believe that using the electric city is better for environment rather that using benzene. If they consider about electricity producing process, both types of cars are not much different. Most electricity is from coal factory outside the city. To use electricity cars is only move the pollution in the city to outside the city. All still heat up the world.

To get a clear energy may cost higher at the first installing, but it works very well in long term and it is also good to the world, too. The words that pop-up in your head should be solar, wind and water from dam. We can also think about other cheaper things to install, such as roof pond and water coil on the roof to make hot water for hot country.

Dams are something truly green, although they do not look green. A dam does not only produce a lot of electricity, but it can be the biggest green project in the world. Although the government have to destroy a lot of forest area to make a dam and the concrete surface can heat up the temperature around, the dam can keep the water to serve people all year long. When people have water to use, especially for agriculture, they will create the evergreen lands around the rivers, because the rivers have never dried. The places that had been desert during the summer time, the dams can make it to be evergreen territory for whole year. I visited many dams in Thailand during my vacations. The weather was quite hot, especially on the highest part of the dams. People cannot stand without umbrellas in the sunny day. I looked into the town side, and I was very impressed. All territory was green with banana and rice farms. That dam is, “Kun-Dan” Dam (เขื่อนขุนด่าน) in Nakorn Nayok.

I was in a seminar of Dr. Smith Dharmasaroja with other Silpakorn University professors and students in 2008. Dr. Smith explained about the disaster from the dam in the north part of the world. He said that that the current planet earth was just like a feeble spinning top with 23 degree leaning, and if people kept making dams above the equator, the earth would be end faster. Most of the lands on the earth are above the equator, so most of the dams will be above equator, too. This may be real, but I cannot fully believe it, because I cannot know if the south part of the world is exact the below part of the spinning top. The words, “North Pole” and “South Pole” are only what humans used to call for representation. (The first map was made by European, so they would love to show themselves on the North.) If we do not consider about what Dr. Smith said, the dam is still not so useful in many ways as I mentioned before.

I also have another reason to support that the south pole can be the top part of the world, if the world acts like a spinning top. Generally, we know that a biggest ozone hole is at the south pole, and the air of south pole is the lowest moisture air in the world (like the desert air). That mean the south pole does not have much of substance in atmosphere. If we notice the hurricane which acts in the same way, we will see the cloudless space at the eye of hurricane, which is the top part of it. That is the reason that I guess that the south pole is the real top side of the world. You can simply test this method at home. You just have a bowl of water with some sand or dust in it, and then you stir the water around; you will see the dust crowd at the bottom, and the water is hollow at the top when you are stirring.

NASA already found the water on the moon. It also loves to research the Mar. That means humans are looking for new places to live. Why don’t they want to make the world better rather than being hopeless to keep the world green. We cannot stop people who cut the trees down. We cannot stop people who burn the forest. We cannot stop people who keep punching the holes at the north pole for their ice testings (the ice melts faster if the bigger surface touch the water). We cannot stop people who consume everything wastefully. The results are bigger and stronger hurricanes and toxic. Finally, their acts just kill other innocent people who may have never hurt the world.
