As most people are aware Thailand's government has been in limbo for the better part of 2014 with protests, failed elections and random violence. During the week of May 19th 2014 this situation has changed significantly. This article aims to provide a "real-life" version of how this has affected (or not) the life of our residents and people of Bangkok.
Over the past couple of months we have been trialling a British Butcher based in Prawet (near Suvarnabhumi) that delivers to marina house. This Butcher has been in business for a number of years and now supplies a variety of 5 star hotels, popular bars and restaurants. There meat is sourced locally, but handled and treated using traditional British Butcher methods. The end result is some VERY good quality meat. They deliver, inside Bangkok, for free for orders over B1,500 so a number of people in marina house have been co-ordinating their orders to take advantage of this fantastic supplier.
