There are, indeed, "...small scale, innovative, surprising businesses in this area..." Izara Arts is an income generation project for Hilltribe women... offering them the option to work from home rather than being forced into city factories. The office is based here in Chiang Rai. Very small (there are but four rolling the ball, in addition to the many incredible women that they work with) they sell a number of different handicrafts from yoga mat bags to eyemasks...

It seems the fabulous folks at Doi Chaang are up to some good work as well.

I'm bran spankin' new to this neck of the woods, but will keep these eyes peeled and share when I see businesses up to some interesting things.

What about galleries in the area? Live music? I've been looking... but so far unsuccessful.

And, Limbo, who are these women in your italic text? I'd love to get in touch with women's cooperatives in the area.

Welcome to Chiang Rai NampeungMay!

What about galleries in the area? Live music? I've been looking... but so far unsuccessful.

Look in the thread "I don't understand why people are afraid etc etc" and the one of the 9 Gallery & Architect Studio.

Tonight concert at the Phowadol!

And, Limbo, who are these women in your italic text? I'd love to get in touch with women's cooperatives in the area.

These co-operatives don't exist anymore.

They didn't get any support and the women were 'encouraged' to join the predecessors of the OTOP clubs.

I didn't even know that Chiang Mai had an Expats club.

Actually, I just started THE Chaing Rai Expats club two days ago. I'm the only member so far. Yesterday, I opened the Chiang Rai Expats Club Annex in Chiang Mai. I'll be the only member there too, when I happen to go down there for a little shopping later this week. I'm looking forward to going to Chiang Mai and collecting dues from myself when I get there and offering pointers to myself about the proper way to conduct meetings and encourage myself to try to build up the membership in the faltering annex.

I'm already starting to see a lack of motivation and participation in the fledgling annex and I perceive that the membership isn't taking it as seriously as the Chiang Rai Expats club membership thinks it should be taken. I understand that not ONE proper meeting has taken place at this time with that annex bunch. I have some really good ideas about how the Chiang Mai Annex of the Chiang Rai Expats Club should be operated and I am hopeful that when I present the ideas to myself when I get there that I don't find a lot of bad blood surfacing because of "jealousy" and resentment of the head office showing up and taking charge. If the bad blood does surface, I'll certainly be quick to remind the annex member that the Chiang Mai Annex charter can be revoked in very short order if the attitudes don't improve immediately.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Well, right now I kind of have my hands full with that unruly annex bunch down south. When I get that mess straightened out, I'll get back to you. In the meantime, don't get desperate and join a copycat club. You deserve the real deal, man.

There was an impromptu meeting of a possible future Chiang Rai Expats club at the Swiss Deli on 22nd December last year.

Presided over by acting chairman Limbo with master-at-arms villagefarang keeping order, Lannaman and sceadugenga, accompanied by Chiang Mai ambassador and visiting royalty Mcgriffith solved a few of Thailand's more urgent problems.

Trouble was no one could remember the solutions the next day. :D:)

as I said, more riff raff.

I hope we get a better quality of members in Kandahars original Chiang Rai only ex-pats club.

What are the potential benefits of an "expats club"?

Please understand that Mr. Kandahar is wearing many hats at the moment and it therefore will be difficult for him to give a quick

answer to your for that matter very interesting question!

He is not only Chairman, General-Secretary, Treasurer of FEC-Chiang Rai (First Expat Club Chiang Rai), but also the only member

at this moment. It will take a lot of co-ordination to keep the club together and I am sure that I speak on behalf of most of us when

I say that I have the greatest respect for his endeavours.

The Chiang Mai branch might be one bridge too far for Mr. Kandahar. Let's hope that he is not driving himself too far.

And my dear Chiang35baht, there is another thing:

There is a big difference between 'potential' benefits and benefits.

The category 'potential' benefits limits itself usually to a literary contemplation.

Maybe you should rephrase your question for a better understanding.

Dear Mr. Kandahar, dear Mr. Chairman,

next to the honorable candidate member Mr. Dingdong I also want to express my interest and sympathy.

As Mr. Sceadugenga already mentioned:

22 December the Very First Expat Club of Chiang Rai (VFEC-Chiang Rai) held it first meeting at the Swiss Deli.

Present were the Guest of Honour and Founding Chairman Mr. McGriffith (yes, yes, himself, and in person!), two gentlemen from the

Chiang Rai country side, more precisely Mr. Sceadugenga and Mr. Villagefarang, two local members Mr. Lannaman and Mr. Limbo

Mr. Svenivan, who intended to join, brought an apology forward. He happened to be in the middle of a golf tournament.

As Mr. McGriffith is based in Chiang Mai, you might consider to ask him to represent the FEC-CR there.

It would lighten your burden, I am sure.

As you without any doubt will be extremely busy these days it seems to premature to suggest to you a fusion between the

VFEC-CR and your FEC-CR.

Both clubs could join DTCS Wilanda and I can guarantee you would be elected its new Chairman and, if possible also

General-Secretary and Treasurer, but the honorable position of being the only member you would have to share.

I hope you will have the kindness to rise to the bait!

Limbo :)

PS: Dutch Thai Cultural Society Wilanda exists about six years and has so far been active in the cultural field in Chiang Rai.

There is only one Dutchman member and he shoulders the same multiple tasks as you do in FEC-Chiang Rai.

It's time for him to retire.

'Wilanda' is one of the first words used in old Ayutthaya for foreigners, thereby a respectable 350 years older than 'farang'.
