This rather unsightly ‘tub of lard’ lying on its side with needles all over my upper right hand side wired to transmit electricity to make the treatment more effective is I am sorry to say, me.

As you may know I have been receiving acupuncture from the above company to combat the pain from severe arthritis in my right hip and S1 sacroiliac joint. I find that it has been very effective and have been going on a weekly basis for sometime now.

Last week I slipped over in the kitchen and in attempting to break my fall I twisted my back and right shoulder.

When I told Dr. Kate she wired up the twisted back and shoulder and later on that day I went swimming! Acupuncture certainly works for me!

If you have an underlying pain problem be it long term or a recent injury I can certainly recommend a visit to Terra Acupuncture in Hua Hin.

They are keeping me going with all my related problems after 5 spinal operations and a pretty physical life having been in the forces and played rugby.

If you are a golfer, play badminton, football or, just age is starting to wear you down, give them a visit.

𝐀 𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐞𝐰 𝐨𝐟 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐨𝐬𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐬 𝐈𝐧𝐝𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐲 𝐢𝐧 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝 The Global Cosmetics Market was valued at USD 307.69 billion in 2020. With the Asia Pacific region estimated to be one of the largest and fastest growing regions for the cosmetics market, Thailand is ideally situated for future growth and expansion through the length of the supply chain. Thailand is primed to become ASEAN’s beauty hub with a market forecast to be valued at over USD 7.3 billion in 2022 and regulatory harmonization with ASEAN through the AHCRS (ASEAN Harmonized Cosmetic Regulatory Scheme) increasing business potential throughout the length of the value chain.

Set in the framework of Thailand 4.0—whose four pillars are Economic Prosperity, Social Well-being, Raising Human Values and Environmental Protection—the 2018 EEC Act, together with the new Smart City initiative, is poised to bring about a highly anticipated economic, infrastructural, technological and social transformation. The combined efforts of different agencies of the Royal Thai Government have attracted FDI to the EEC. Thailand’s Board of Investment (BOI) offers a number of incentives to companies in the technological innovation arena. Incentives available, specifically for Smart City project developers, infrastructure system (for instance, fiber optics and Wi-Fi) developers; and intelligent network developers, include eight years of corporate income tax exemption and other non-tax incentives.

Earlier this week Expat Life was in Bangkok for official functions, a business dinner and a hospital visit and I stayed at the excellent Hyatt Regency Sukhumvit alongside Nana BTS.

The hotel is still relatively new at 4 years old but has rapidly established itself as a key destination hotel in the middle of Sukhumvit under the stewardship of Indonesian GM Sammy Carolus.

I arrived Sunday afternoon and on Sunday night the 30th floor night bar was throbbing to the beats of DJ’s and filled to the gunnels with 30 something Thai HiSo’s enjoying cocktails and the music of a Belgian private group called ….. that arrange one of the coolest parties in town every Sunday. Tickets are available at …..

Far too old for the likes of that Expat Life enjoyed some delightful views and perhaps one too many cocktails on the 29th floor but I slept like a baby whilst the youngsters upstairs partied the night away.

The following evening the top 3 floors were booked for a private wedding party. This is a GM that realising that room nights are down because international visitors are not yet coming to Thailand in any great numbers seems to maximise his hotels facilities.

I attended a private dinner the following night along with 3 top international businessmen from the famous Khao restaurant. All four of us were suitably impressed by the delicious food and the superb service provided by the hotels staff.

In my humble impression there is no other hotel in central Bangkok that rivals the Hyatt Regency Sukhumvit. I heartedly recommend it and know that you will be as impressed as I always am.

The Asian Institute of Hospitality Management is proud to launch its AIHM Mixology Contest 2022. Open to students, amateur enthusiasts and seasoned pros, contestants are invited to create an original mocktail/cocktail, with prizes worth up to 34,000B on offer.

The Asian Institute of Hospitality Management was founded by Minor Hotels, Asia’s most powerful hospitality company, in academic association with Les Roches, a global leader in hospitality education. Together, they bring Swiss educational excellence to the region. At AIHM, students are encouraged to think outside the box, push themselves further, and develop their creativity. These values are personified in the AIHM Mixology Contest, with participants concocting original mocktails/cocktails and presenting them to a panel of judges made up of industry experts. There are three categories in the competition – mocktail (for students up to the age of 20), amateur and professional. For the first round, contestants submit their recipe and their inspiration online. The judges will then go through the recipes, looking in particular for uniqueness and flair. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to the live final at Riverside Plaza on the Chao Phraya riverbank to present their cocktail to the judges.

Winners of each category will be awarded stays at luxurious Minor Hotels properties, including Avani+ Koh Lanta Krabi Resort, Anantara Vacation Club Mai Khao Phuket and Avani Pattaya Resort. Runners up will receive Minor Hotels e gift cards worth varying amounts up to 10,000B, to be spent on hotel stays, dining or spa experiences at Anantara and Avani properties around the world. 

To enter the competition, or for more information, please scan QR Code on the image. The first round closes on 18th March 2022, with shortlisted candidates announced on the AIHM website and social media on 24th March 2022, and the final scheduled for 6th April 2022.
