Ploy Siam Beer

May 23, 2013

Few nights ago I went into a Family Mart to buy Heineken and they were out of stock. So I decided to try this Ploy Siam beer. It is a very strong beer, at about 8% and has a taste that resembles wine. I would have to say that I did NOT like it, but it is a strong and cheap Thai beer, so it does serve it’s purpose at some times here in Thailand. 🙂

Any else tried this Thai beer, Ploy Siam, before?

Rare 100 baht bill have the Crown Prince picture

May 18, 2013

His majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej is usually the person on the back of the 100 baht bills circulating in Thailand, but recently I came across another bill, that has his son, the current Crown Prince of Thailand, Vajiralongkorn on the back of 100 baht bill. Ever since then, I’ve been checking every 100 baht bill that I come into possession with and cannot find another with Vajiralongkorn on it, except the 1 here in the pics.

After searching the net, I found this:

“The bank will also issue 10 million commemorative banknotes with a face value of 100 baht to celebrate HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn’s 5th cycle, or 60th birthday, on July 28 and circulate them in the financial system.

The front of the special edition 100-baht banknote will be identical to those currently in circulation.

The back, however, will bear a portrait of the Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn in full regalia and an illustration depicting the Crown Prince’s investiture.”

The Central bank also issued commemorative 80-baht banknotes to represent the 80th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen.
