Thai princess named as prime minister candidate for Thaksin-linked party as junta chief Prayut joins race

 

F9IFuXM.jpg

 

BANGKOK - The elder sister of Thailand's king has been nominated to be prime minister for a party linked to former premier Thaksin Shinawatra while junta chief Prayut Chan-o-cha also announced his bid for the job, in a surprise development for the country's much-anticipated election on March 24.

 

Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya, 67, was the sole prime minister candidate nominated by the Thai Raksa Chart Party on Friday (Feb 8) morning as registration of candidates drew to a close.

 

Under Thailand's new electoral system, parties eyeing the premiership are required to name their candidates in advance.

 

Thai Raksa Chart Party is created by many former members of Pheu Thai Party, which won the last election in 2011 but was thrown out of power by a military coup in 2014. It is allied with Pheu Thai Party for the upcoming election.

 

The eldest child of former king Bhumibol Adulyadej, Princess Ubolratana relinquished her royal title at the age of 21 when she married a fellow student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After the couple divorced in 1998, she moved back to Thailand, where she continues to be treated as a royal.

 

Her activities are chronicled alongside those of her three siblings - including current King Maha Vajiralongkorn - in the regular television news bulletin about the royal family.

In Thailand the Burger King seems to be rediculously expensive, went to a restaurant to have a quick fix a few nights ago.

 

How are prices of Burger King in Singapore compared to the other fast food?

Mo-Mo-Paradise is a chain of shabu-shabu and sukiyaki restaurant from Japan. You can find them in many malls in Bangkok. Everything in their restaurants are very fresh. Its buffet style meaning its eat-all-you-can at 1 price. There is a bar for vegetables, tofu, salad but the meats and noodles you have to order with the staff.

 

Had dinner there alone 4hrs ago

 

The restaurant, got to queue 15mins for my table

It's roughly the same price in SG for a whopper. However if you show that the online coupon, it's slightly cheaper.

 

I always tried the pork burger whenever I was in Bangkok. Nice..

 

If I can recall, the Burger King @ Suvarnabhumi Airport are even more expensive.

Steveluv, thanks for the many recommendation on the nice places to eat in BKK. Any good recommendation for local Thai dessert places that one can go around Siam Sq area - e.g. mango sticky rice, red ruby, tapioca with grated coconut, etc
