What should be going on in Chiang Rai?

Recommended Posts

Yes Khun Gerry1011,

A serious omission from my side.

"The only medium reporting on forehand on the Chiang Rai Classic Car Weekend was ........ yes, THIS FORUM!"

.... I wrote.

The correct version should have been:

The only medium in/of Chiang Rai reporting on forehand on the Chiang Rai Classic Car Weekend was ........ yes, THIS FORUM!

As also Tayto pointed out: Even if 10 magazines and newspapers in Chiang Mai give information about things going to happen in Chiang Rai, we won't know.

Unless these 10 magazines and newspapers are distributed in Chiang Rai :o

How I torture my brains, I don't see the feasibility of a Chiang Rai magazine. For years people have been talking about it, to no result.

A very limited 'newsletter' maybe? Help me hope!

A combination of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai in one magazine or newspaper would be neither fish, flesh, nor a good red herring. See the existing examples!

Limbolus.

My friend Limbo, let me disagree with you.

The Chiangrai Classic Car Weekend appeared two month in a row as a preview

in Good Morning Chiangmai News, it also appeared three weeks before the event in Chiangmai Mail, and about one month before the event in Bangkok Post.

The agenda of 9Art Gallery also appears in Good Morning Chiangmai News.

Now, being based is CM, these are certainly not the easiest source of information, I admit.

Whilst I agree with Gerry about Good morning ChiangMai news or other publications in Chiang Mai, being good sources of information, they are for Chiang Mai not for Chiang Rai even though they occassionally will put in something about Chiang Rai.

We need information about Chiang Rai, what on , and one of the best ways to do it is here.

This week from 25th Nov to end of the month is Chiang rai food festival.

There will be a lanna style show/dance in front of Sammarki school/Saenphu Hotel on Friday..........more details to follow

Ok, I will continue to pass the information (which I have) to both channels. The newspapers, and here.

And, promissed, I will translate advertisements in Thai that catch my attention.

:D

Limbo.

Again, I don't share this analyse.

You know that I am someone who likes to "make things happen" - and I do in some cases - especially when they seem impossible to achieve in CR.

My opinion is that it is totaly feasable to have "a source of information" as long as you have enough people with enthousiasm behind it, and a team which also "likes to make things happen".

But, it also represents some consistent work that very few people are ready to do, apart from the ones who can make money with it (and very little money, by the way), like the existing magazines and newspapers.

You speak about a very limited newsletter, it is a good idea. I would love to receive a CR newsletter, even if it was only one page.

But it could also be a Chiangrai page in other magazines or newspapers.

Or, it could also be an online version only, with nice design and pictures (which lacks here).

But it takes more than one (or two) persons to evolve from "we want it" to a "Let's do it"...

Someone stuck a flier in my motorcy basket - said Sek Loso is coming to perform!

Maybe better than Big Ass (a real band name) anyway.

What about a "Nothern Provinces" newsletter?

There are a few of us in adjoining provinces, as well, it's not all C.M or C.R.

Anyway, this forum is good enough for me (but like to see more regional events), and of course one can add photos...

Event: Songkran 2005

Ohh, sorry, this event has passed already. :D

But it could be:

Event: Chopping firewood at zzap's= next weekend, volunteers welcome! :D

Hey why do pics appear twice? There's a bug in the software! :o

Well, it took me 20 minutes to compose and correct my previous post, and it still isn't right.

I won't post pics again.

The pic at the bottom belongs further up of course.

Hey you guys.....you are off topic....this topic is supposed to be a place to announce what things are happening in CHiang Rai....if you want to discuss the pros and cons of doing something else why don't you go start your own topic and stop trying to hijack this one. Limbo...why don't you start a new topic and move all of this off topic stuff over to that one?...and leave this one for people to inform everyone about what is happening in CR?

Agreed Chownah.

This posting or a similar one could be pinned to the top of the page and any events in Chiang Rai or surrounding area could be added to it.

What about it Limbo?

Slightly offtopic, perhaps.

I just made a positive (I think) suggestion, which is within the spirit of preliminary discussion, which appears to be what is happening here.

But you're right in a way, a (pinned?) topic just to list whatever is happening in the area is a good idea! :o

Hi zzap.

I know the feeling about the photographs.I have spent hours and still cant get the hang of it.

Dont give up,keep practising, try posting some on the pinned area for photos at the top of the page.

I have made many errors, so you cant be any worse.

Upps!

Tayto's post appeared while I was typing.

Great minds come up with similar suggestions! :o

Even small donations are always welcome at the temple of Rong Khun!

Donating coins is the fun part of making merit. You must be able to aim.

If you miss, you give it another try. And when your one-Baht coins are finished, ok, you take the five-Baht coins.

Contrary to feeding a one-arm-bandit slotmachine here you always win, even if the reward is postponed for a while.

A very nice example you can find in Ban Sobrak (Golden Triangle) as well.

There you have to throw your coins in a stainless steel construction and your coin will roll through a long pipe into the belly button of a big smiling and big bellied Chinese style munk.

Edit: My first try, some while ago, in the photo-topic resulted in only the text of the caption. Now again: I tried. I browsed, I attached. After ten minutes the picture showed up, framed by the 'paint-program'. Don't ask me why.

Is there anybody who in extremely simple wording could explain to us how we have to ad photo's?

Digitally seen many of us are toddlers, so don't make it difficult please.

Dear Flupke, I see a task for you here! And Tayto: You managed before! You even managed (like zapp) to get the same picture twice in your posting.

And now I will put all my technical skills on the balance to make this pinned topic you talked about. And change the name of the title of this topic a little bit.

Wow, first a cup of coffee. This ain't peanuts!

Limbo, doing his best.

Well, I had to click on the textline to download and look at rong khun.bmp

and it took a few minutes on my inedaquate connection.

Smaller size jpeg files seem to work better for attachments.

My problem before seems to have been that I choose to "add into post" , which made the pics appear twice.

There seems to be two different ways of posting photos,

1. by using the browse button below+Add this attachment and then a button will appear ''add into post'' which you do.

This is farly straightworward but you have to have the photo in your own computor photos.

2. By getting the photos URL, dragging and adding it into IMG above.

This is difficult and lots of times it doesn't work.

So any experts please help

us .

No, i'm not Irish, if the last comment was aimed at me.

You got a duplicate image, too, Tayto! :D

Another (off-topic) try:

A village 'carnival' (june 2, 2005)

PS: Best part of an hour and only one edit! Works like a flash...

Bye,bye, pics. :o
