  1. It was an enjoyable ride yesterday afternoon. Normally go out midmorning to avoid the heat of the day, but yesterday's cloud cover and the occasional spit of rain was perfect riding weather. As to why the shut down the bike path, it's probably because the bike path is part of the Mabprachan park system and the edict from on high says all parks must be closed. Lazy policy making, IMHO. If I were emperor I'd keep beaches and parks open and instruct my police force to break up and tell any groups of greater than N to move along. I'd also make this the national song.
  2. Mabprachan Reservoir on the other hand was closed, so only got a couple of distant shots.
  3. Almost three months since the last update. I was worried Huai Chak Nok Reservoir would be closed due to the latest round of Covid restrictions, but luckily that proved not to be the case. Not easy to see in this pic, but on the west end they're building a structure. Don't know what they're doing here. Enlarging the capacity of the reservoir maybe. Perhaps this sign explains the project.
  4. Starting work on a couple more buildings at the new X Zyte market.
  5. For those that pre-paid for their Moderna shots, bad news for you. What I don't understand is how the Thai Red Cross and other hospitals can commandeer pre-paid doses. Moderna shots to be allotted Not all people who have booked, and paid for, the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine from private hospitals will get all their shots since an allotment system will apply, according to the chairman of the Private Hospitals Association. Chalerm Harnphanich told Thai media late this week about the need for the allotment, which looks very much like a share subscription. He said the associa
  6. Just received the following email from the US Embassy. Don't understand why it's only a one day advance notice, but it's not the Embassy's doing as the notice is from the Thai govt and the Embassy is only the messenger. Location: Bangkok, Thailand Event: COVID-19 Vaccine Opportunity for U.S. Citizens - July 17, 2021 The Thai Government has informed the U.S. Embassy that it is offering U.S. citizens in Thailand the opportunity to be vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine at 4 p.m. this Sunday July 18, 2021 at SCG Headquarters in Bang Sue area of Bangk
  7. The sign support structure going up for the building on 3rd Rd and Klang. Reception area is taking shape. Large tree about to find a new home too.
  8. They're advertising it as a survey, not registration. They'll probably use the personal info to contact you when the vaccine becomes available. But they're asking for more personal info than I'm comfortable giving, just so they can contact me.
  9. This is a surprising, but welcome development. Sinovac dumped as second-dose vaccine in favour of AstraZeneca In a major policy change, the Public Health Ministry has decided to use the AstraZeneca vaccine for the second jab for those who received Sinovac as the first dose. Public Health Minister Anutin Chanvirakul announced the change on Monday. AstraZeneca would be administered as the second shot three or four weeks after the Sinovac inoculation. A combination of the two vaccines would provide a better defence against the Delta variant of the virus, he said. Mr Anut
  10. The new playground for young and old adults under the 3rd Rd flyover is done. Completely enclosed in chicken wire so children can safely leave their parents to play without having to worry about them running out into traffic. Sure hope they don't intend to mix stationary exercise equipment in the same area as football.
  11. Not just where the vaccines are going to but also what is the true output from Siam Bioscience of the AZ vaccine, which the Thai govt was placing heavy bets on to vaccinate their population. At the beginning of June I seem to recall they were supposed to be producing 10 million doses a month, but all I read now are vague references to delays and output shortfalls. People are getting the AZ jabs, but nowhere near what was expected for this point in time. Instead what we read is increases in the number of Sinovac shots being imported to make up the shortfall. And as the author of the a
  12. Yes, the silence is deafening as to what has happened to local production of AZ. Another opinion piece posted yesterday by Thitinan Pongsudhirak in the Bangkok Post that touches on the why. Is there a jab cover-up in Thailand? And by the same author another article last week. Prayut govt stuck in self-made trap Total respect for the guy for writing about questions that are on most of our minds, and having the balls to publish those questions.
  13. No lines for today's grand opening of Taco Bell. Nice landscaping job at the Edge. Too bad the overhead utility lines ruin the view.
  14. Work is progressing slowly on WS. You can't see because of the shadows, but I there was a guy hunched down below the concrete arch as the heavy equipment above was banging away on the concrete cross piece. And here he is, barefoot and barehands, and no hardhat.
  15. Same here. I'm overdue for a visit back to the States, but I'll be damned if I'll jump through the hoops required now to gain re-entry into Thailand.
