I’ll do a proper post some time soon, but here’s a quick pointer to tonight’s episode of Stilgherrian Live, uploaded for your viewing pleasure.
Links for 02 October 2008 through 06 October 2008
Stilgherrian’s links for 02 October 2008 through 06 October 2008, covered in peanut butter and cat fur:
- Tragedy mars Leena’s run for governor | Bangkok Post: I wouldn’t have made as much fun of this story if I’d had the full details. While Bangkok governor candidate Leena Jangjanya was safely rescued from a canal durign a publicity stunt, her campaign manager Teerasak Sitanont drowned.
- We can’t afford to keep Sydney running: Rees | smh.com.au: New South Wales’ new Premier reckons we can’t afford to run Australia’s largest city. That strikes me as odd. Where did all the money go? Is he looking in the right places?
- I saved Telstra, says Trujillo | Australian IT: Telstra’s boss does bit of auto-hagiography. Given that he’s talking up how much he achieved, does that mean there’s some disaster about to be revealed?
- What I want from an e-book reader… | Doc Holds Fourth: Steve “Doc” Baty’s requirements for a e-book reader. I particularly like “I can ‘loan’ my copy of a book to a friend by transferring it to their reader. If I do that, it’s no longer on my reader. This could also act as a way to give people Gifts.”
“Oh no! Leena’s fallen in the water!”
Actually, the sexiest woman in all Thailand, Leena Jangjanya (à¸¥à¸µà¸™à¸² à¸ˆà¸±à¸‡à¸ˆà¸£à¸£à¸ˆà¸²), fell into Bangkok’s polluted Khlong Saen Saeb (à¸„à¸¥à¸à¸‡à¹à¸ªà¸™à¹à¸ªà¸š) canal while campaigning today. It’s more like sewage than water.
val told me a short time ago, but it’s being reported in Bangkok’s two leading English-language newspaper websites, The Nation and the Bangkok Post.
Leena reportedly fell from a boat near the Pratunam pier, but is unharmed. That is, until she gets the bad case of diarrhoea.
[P.S. Do not do a Google Images search for “leena” just by itself when safe search is turned off. You have been warned. However it’s nice to note that an image search for “leena jang” currently has four of my pages in the top 12.]
Leena, I love your new hairdo!
As you perhaps already know, I reckon that Leena Jangjanya (à¸¥à¸µà¸™à¸² à¸ˆà¸±à¸‡à¸ˆà¸£à¸£à¸ˆà¸²) is the most beautiful, most sexy woman in all of Thailand. I’m therefore thrilled to discover that she has a new hairdo and is running for Governor of Bangkok.
That Leena runs her own cosmetics business as well as being a prominent labour rights lawyer should hold her in good stead. But, my Beautiful Leena, you need to update your website and destroy last year’s posters.
Unreliable Bangkok 4: Lust
Leena Jangjanya (à¸¥à¸µà¸™à¸² à¸ˆà¸±à¸‡à¸ˆà¸£à¸£à¸ˆà¸², pictured above) is the most beautiful, most sexy woman in all of Thailand.
She’s usually just called Leena Jang, and since she’s a candidate in Sunday’s Thai general election her posters are everywhere in Bangkok’s northern suburbs. There’s three versions, including one in her graduation robes (law) and one where she’s looking like a successful businesswoman in white. You can see them both below.
