Whatever your choices may be outside our walls, in our serenely
tranquil Lobby surrounded by a vibrant floral rainbow of hues, a
distinct whiff of lavender and mint never fails to delicately tease your
senses. And yes, it is understandable if some among you felt you
had glided right into the realms of your favorite dream.
We invite you to share in the essence of ‘Don’t Worry - Be Happy’
through the spirit of ‘Mai Pen Rai’, because when you’re our guest,
nothing else matters to us.

Faced with the inevitability of a venue change after eight
successful years, Phuket Raceweek organisers, Image Asia
Events, recently announced the conclusion of multi-year
deals with new Title Sponsor, Cape Panwa Hotel and Host
Venue Sponsors, Cape Panwa Hotel and Kantary Bay Hotel.
“Cape Panwa Hotel and its sister property, Kantary Bay Hotel, on the
tip of Cape Panwa in the southeast of the island, will give us the
opportunity to lift the standards of Phuket Raceweek even higher than
before, while introducing some welcome new elements – such as Cape
Panwa Hotel’s stunning beach and beachside gardens,” said Image Asia’s
MD, Grenville Fordham. “This agreement means that we continue to race
in the same waters in and around Chalong Bay that are so popular with
regatta participants, that we keep our signature ‘one regatta, one venue’
format – and that we have security of venue beyond 2012,” he added.
According to Fordham, the Cape Panwa Hotel deal is testimony to the
attraction of Phuket Raceweek as a commercial sponsorship platform.
“This is not a charitable deal. Cape Panwa Hotel owners, Kasemkij
Hotels, have taken a commercial decision and expect a return on
their investment. We’ve spent the last few months ironing out the
details with their senior management to ensure that they, the regatta
organisers, the participants and other sponsors all get the value they
should expect,” he said.
“We’re excited to be partnering with one of the region’s top regattas as
it goes into its ninth year,” said Tirawan Pangsrivongse, Kasemkij Hotels’
Project Development Manager, adding, “Sports tourism is the fastest
growing sector in the global travel and tourism industry and Phuket is
the sports tourism centre for Thailand. Leisure yachting and yacht racing
are at the pinnacle of high-end sports tourism and this new partnership
is a perfect ft with our position in the market. We look forward to
showcasing our two Phuket properties, Cape Panwa Hotel and Kantary
Bay Hotel to regatta participants and associated media this July.”
“We selected Cape Panwa Hotel as our new venue because of its
stunning setting, exclusive sheltered beach and perfect anchorage for
visiting yachts,” said Fordham, adding, “The Cape Panwa area has become
increasingly popular, but the ‘original’ Cape Panwa Hotel remains the
jewel in its crown – confrmed by the long list of the rich and famous for
whom it’s been a sanctuary over the years. Notables such as Leonardo di
Caprio, Pierce Brosnan, Bryan Adams, Oliver Stone, Catherine Zeta Jones,
Joan Chen and more are about to be joined by Asia’s yacht racing ‘rock
stars’ for the frst time in the hotel’s distinguished history.”
Lining up alongside Cape Panwa Hotel in one of the top sponsorship
slots is worldwide regatta sponsor, Mount Gay Rum, who used the 2011
regatta as the Thailand launch platform of the sailors’ favourite tipple.
After the huge success of their 2011 participation, they have increased
their investment this year, returning as Presenting Sponsor to launch
their new premium brand.
Online registration for Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket
Raceweek 2012 is open at www.phuketraceweek.

for early bird entrants. Participants wanting to
book accommodation at either Cape Panwa
Hotel or Kantary Bay Hotel should visit www.

About Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek

Asian Yachting Grand Prix Circuit, is run over six or seven classes
including Racing, Multihull, Cruising and Bareboat Charter. The regatta
has gained a reputation for its competitive racing for the serious racers
and fun courses around the islands for the less serious yachtsmen.

IMAGE asia, publishers of Window on Lifestyle magazine, are Of cial
Media Partners of TSLC Iron Kids Phuket 2012.
FIRED UP IRONKIDS
MAKE A SPLASH AS FIRST 2012 RACE SHOWS
PHUKET CHILDREN DASHING TO JOIN SPORT
Ms Ratclife said 22 children from Anuban Phuket were sponsored by AIS
(Advanced Info Service PLC), with three training sessions prior to the race
to help them become familiar with the course, and the skills required for
Triathlon racing.
The next race will be another trial race on October 28th, preparing
children for the of cial race on the 1st of December, the TSLC Ironkids
Phuket Championships race, with the school awards and sponsored
team awards along with the prestigious individual TSLC IronKids Phuket
trophies to the top three in each age group.
TSLC’s partnership with IronKids will also include professionally led
training camps run throughout the year, and will be known as TSLC
IronKids Phuket.
To register or fnd more information on the TSLC IronKids Phuket Series,
you can visit the website www.ironkidsphuket.com. It is also helpful to
“like” the TSLC IronKids Phuket facebook page for regular updates and to
see posts of other related events in Phuket that the children can join, such
as fun runs and training activities.
PHUKET, THAILAND – The Thanyapura Sports & Leisure
Club IronKids Phuket 2012 series saw 79 children from
kindergarten age to high school seniors give their all to make
it to the fnish line, as the sport continues to go from strength
to strength in Thailand.
Sakda (Ben) Kammungkan and Annalis Johnson were the Senior winners
(12-17 years old), from a relatively small feld. The intermediate age group
was the largest feld with 37 participants, seeing Chris Thomson, a regular
IronKids Phuket frst place fnisher taking a strong lead to win the age
group overall, and Maxime and Chloe Schrijnemaekers leading the girls,
fnishing just a minute apart, in frst and second place respectively.
Claire Ratclife, Race Director of TSLC IronKids Phuket said the sport was
catching on fast and had captured the imagination of children and
parents alike. “We had several adults join the Seniors Division,” she said.
“This is a great way for beginner adult triathletes to join in the fun of
racing and get a taste for it. The kids love it – and what fantastic facilities
we have for the races thanks to the help of TSLC.”
Paradorn Mohr was the fastest of the juniors to complete the 50m
swim leg of the race, and combined with his 3km bike and 500m run,
he crossed the fnish line in 12 min 51 sec. Winning the Juniors female
category with a 14 min and 25 second fnish was Nanako McIntosh in her
strongest IronKids Phuket fnish since her frst race last December.
The Juniors’ course is a 50m swim, 3km bike, followed by a 500m run. The
intermediate race distances are a 150m swim, 6km bike, 1.5km run and
the seniors race distances are a 300m swim, 12km bike, and a 3km run.

Facilities
Palm House School provides purpose designed and built facilities in extensive
tropical grounds that consist of: air conditioned classrooms with wireless
internet and interactive whiteboards, reference library, outdoor hardcourt,
grass playing feld, large landscaped outdoor play area.
International Primary Curriculum
The IPC focuses children’s learning on a combination of knowledge, skills
and understanding. No one can properly predict the nature of work and life
opportunities that will be available for today’s primary age children by the
time they are adults. Many of the jobs they will have don’t yet exist; especially
in the felds of ICT, technology and science. So the IPC focuses on a skills-
based approach, developing adaptable and resilient globally-minded learners,
prepared for the fast-changing world that they’ll be living and working in.

While spending hours upon hours sweating it out at a gym
might not sound like an ideal holiday activity for many, ever
larger numbers of visitors are arriving to Phuket to do just that.
The ancient martial art of Muay Thai, the Kingdom’s national
sport, has seen a surge of interest from around the world in
recent years, which has launched Phuket into something of
a hotbed for Muay Thai training. Along with the international
regattas, marathons and Ironman events, the rise of Muay Thai
tourism is widening Phuket’s appeal as a place to pursue sport,
health and ftness in addition to being a tropical escape.
Muay Thai’s global popularity is mainly as a result of the fast
growth of mixed martial arts (MMA) – a caged fghting spectacle
that has emerged as a top draw for television and stadium
audiences for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and other
high-profle professional events across North America, Europe
and Asia. Thousands of people are trying out the sport not only
to compete, but as an invigorating way to get ft.
MMA combines several martial arts forms, with Muay Thai being
a crucial element in developing a powerful striking technique.
Anyone who’s serious about being an MMA contender must
learn Muay Thai.
There are now between 20 and 25 Muay Thai camps catering to
tourists around the island, but it's along a small road in Chalong
where the fast growth of the sport is most evident.
Not too long ago, Soi Tai-ead was a sparsely populated lane lined
with rubber and coconut plantations. Today, this 1.5-kilometre
stretch of road houses three training camps, some 20
guesthouses and resorts (including a place called, aptly enough,
Wallop House), and a proliferation of restaurants and shops all
aimed at capturing the martial arts visitor boom. It’s a showcase
of the power of niche tourism, which has transformed an area
well of the beaches with no obvious appeal to tourists into a
hive of activity within just a few years.
The Tiger Muay Thai and MMA camp sits along this road. Arriving
to Tiger, there’s a distinct high-energy ambiance with several
thwacks and grunts heard from the men and women doing their
combat training sessions. Overseeing the camp is director Will
Elliot, who frst came to the camp to train but ended up taking
on the operations for a fellow American, Tiger’s founder Will
McNamara, who resides in the US.
Though the camp trains a core group of serious world
competitors including UFC champions, a large percentage of
Tiger clientele are those aiming to simply fght their way to
ftness. Statistics on the number of visitors coming to Phuket
specifcally for martial arts training are hard to come by, but Tiger
alone attracts some 200-300 people to its camp each month.
Some savvy marketing and a diversifed range of oferings have
helped Tiger reign as the largest camp in Phuket, and perhaps
all of Thailand, with a second and larger camp newly opened in
Chiang Mai. Muay Thai training is just one of many things on ofer
– there’s also Brazilian jiu-jitsu training, another key part of MMA
fghting, as well as yoga, a workout gym, combat gear for sale
and nutrition advice. It’s also in the process of adding CrossFit, a
branded strength and conditioning programme that Will says is
“taking the world by storm”, to its repertoire.

Tiger also handles all aspects of living in Phuket from
accommodation to car/motorbike rental to visa run and
tour services. Through its social events and hospitable staf,
there’s a community-like feel to the place. There’s certainly a
predominance of tattooed, muscle-bound men here, but Will
says that about 30 per cent of Tiger’s customers are women.
“We’re not judgmental here. It’s all about people bettering
themselves, regardless of their sex, age or ftness level,” he said.
There’s been some criticism that such camps are attracting
the wrong kind of visitor to Phuket, and a few news stories
about violent encounters involving martial artists, including
the infamous Lee Aldhouse, a UK kickboxer who’s accused of
murdering a US marine following a bar brawl, seem to lend
credence to this view.
But there’s little evidence to show that martial arts tourists are
any more troublesome than other visitors. Indeed, the manager
of a nearby apartment block said that the rise of the Chalong
camps had been good for their business, sending them a steady
stream of guests year-round, none of which have given them any
problems. They’d had more negative experiences with English
teachers than with any of their Muay Thai guests, she said.

For many, training at a Phuket Muay Thai camp may simply
be a chance to add some depth and excitement to a tropical
holiday, but for others it can be a life-changing, even life-saving
pursuit. Will Elliot tells of one Tiger customer, 27-year-old James
Mason, from Essex, whose obesity was leading to serious health
problems.
After an extensive search of ways to improve his health he ended
up at Tiger Muay Thai, where his daily training and diet have
helped him shed 60 kilograms in nine months, an inspirational
feat that prompted a UK television show and a ftness magazine
to visit the camp to chronicle his journey. He aims to lose a total
of 100 kilograms by the end of the year.
When he weighed in at more than 200 kilograms, James was
told by his doctor that he’d be lucky to live another 10 years,
prompting him to wage a truly Ultimate Fight: the battle for his life.

The Royal Spa and Health Club
In the heart of bustling Phuket Town lies a quiet haven of heavenly peace.
With the continuous sounds of water, trickling, bubbling and steaming, and
with the sweet fruity scents that fll the air, the being is enticed into a fowing
stillness of body and mind.
The Royal Spa and Health Club is a popular tropical day spa with both locals
and visitors alike, which is managed by the Royal Spa Development and
Management Company. With an excellent reputation in the spa development
industry through its experience and attention to detail, the Royal Spa and
Health Club ofers a distinctly personal experience.
Of the signature treatments, the Royal Stone Therapy is one that is particularly
interesting. The Hot Stone massage technique, founded 5000 years ago, uses
black volcanic stones, which are heated and placed on the body, producing a
profound efect, stilling the mind and easing the body.
Unlike many of the high-end spa complexes on the island, which market
themselves exclusively to tourists, the reasonable prices and relaxed but
professional staf at the Royal Spa, means that many local Thais, as well as
tourists, are beginning to use the spa. This has helped to erase the often stif,
and over-formal atmosphere at many of Phuket’s spa resorts, giving the Royal
Spa an ambience of authentic relaxation and pleasure.
All the therapists working at the Royal Spa have been trained at the in-house
'Phuket Spa Academy', established in 2004, to provide a comprehensive spa
training course. The curriculum and assessments provide a measurement of
therapist expertise and knowledge within the Thai spa industry. Since then,
the Royal Spa Development and Management Company have provided
comprehensive and professional spa management, and development
programs, for spa retreats throughout Thailand. Their aim is to provide a
standard of service and expertise throughout the Thai spa industry, to ensure
a high quality of service and standard of treatment, throughout Thailand. It
truly ofers the ‘one stop services for Thai spa business’ and a quality of
relaxed professionalism, rarely found in luxury spa resorts.
Right now The Royal Spa have 12 branches that are managed in resorts
in Patong, Kata, Karon, Panwa, Ao Chalong and Phuket Town and you are
welcome to experience our spas with us anytime. As a special for our 8th year
anniversary, we ofer 'BUY ONE GET ONE FREE' value.

Chilled out by the soothing background
music, my mind was flled with a
peaceful wellbeing as I enjoyed the
warm traditional welcome (again from
Sukko culture) of the ‘Flower Floating
Ritual’ – similar to ‘Loy Kratong’, where
the idea is to foat away past stresses and
wish for luck and joy from that moment
on.
A variety of 40 spa treatments –
prepared by Sukko's certifed Thai
Herbalist and based on ancient Thai
medical theory – is ofered at Sukko, in
packages lasting from 2 hours to 4 hours.
Each package has a specifc purpose
and can be selected to suit your lifestyle
or the way you feel on the day. These
herbal recipes and procedures have
been handed down through generations
and are totally free of petrochemicals,
synthetic perfumes or colouring. Some of the herbs and spices are grown in
Sukko’s own herb garden and picked just for your treatment, ensuring they
are as fresh as can be.
I was pampered with the “Be Balanced” package; a 3 hour experience that
left me feeling relaxed and refreshed. This three-treatment combination
began with 30 minutes in the steam room and the Jacuzzi, followed by a
Thai Turmeric Body Scrub designed to soften your skin and awakening your
senses. The scrub was followed by Sukko Special Body Massage, performed
by hands, using fnger pressure on energy points and smooth strokes along
energy lines. During the movements of the massage, the molecules of
essential oils in Sukko elegant aromatic massage oils will be absorbed through

Sukko means "Beyond Happiness". My frst feeling when I stepped through the
impressive gates of the Sukko spa was, "I’m in paradise". The Sukko staf are dressed
beautifully in traditional Thai style and the spa design, infuenced by the ancient Siamese

Bobby Duchowny studied aromatherapy – a healing art that promotes
massage, when combined with specifc herb and spice oils, as a method
to reduce stress, boost energy and heal certain physical ailments – at the
American Aromatherapy Association.
Some years ago while on holiday in Thailand, he visited an organic farm in
Petchaboon province and became interested in the natural healing properties
of Thai herbs and spices.
“I was particularly attracted to lemon grass as it was used in many popular
Thai foods, as a medicine for stomach disorders and even as a repellent for
mosquitoes,” he recalls.
Bobby used lemon grass as his signature herb to create a line of essential oils,
face and body creams, shower gels and bath crystals, which he and his wife
Palita sold at Bangkok’s world-famous Weekend Market.
What started, several years ago, as a modest enterprise has blossomed into
a successful operation ofering over 90 oils and a wide range of body care
products through many outlets, as well as supplying many of Thailand’s top
resorts and spas with aromatherapy oils.
“Our advantage is that we produce the freshest spa products and our stock is
never kept longer than three months; using fresh spa products can be likened
to eating fresh food rather than processed food.”
Lemongrass House
To visit this home of award-winning spa oils, creams, soaps and so many other exquisite products is a delight. The aromas are
enchanting. At Lemongrass, you can enjoy a spa treatment to sample and choose from their huge range, then take home your
choice to enjoy at your leisure. They even have a great range of kid’s spa products.

Website: www.lemongrasshouse.com
Based on his years of experiences at some of the top spas in Southeast Asia,
Bobby has developed a full line of healthy skin care products. For example, his
hydrating face and body creams have 25 per cent aloe vera, white orchid and
cucumber extracts. And he’s developed a revitalizing mineral muscle soak made
from Andaman Sea salt crystals, blended with white orchid and chamomile
extracts, to help draw out impurities and soothe and revive tense muscles.
“People are sensitive to diferent scents at diferent times of day. It’s a good
idea to get a variety of essential oils and experiment with what smells and
feels good to you,” he says. “Our aromatherapy massage and body oils can
be either uplifting or calming to the spirit. They’re carefully balanced hand-
blended oils created by adding pure essential oils to nourishing, vitamin E
enriched, sweet almond and jojoba base oils.
Lemongrass has won many awards, including Condé Nast Hot List 2007, and
has been featured in several top magazines, including Time Magazine’s “Best
of Asia”. According to Time, “If you want to smell like no one else, try mixing a
selection from the more than 90 natural scents at Lemongrass House.”
Lemongrass House is located in Cherngtalay, Surin Beach and Chalong, where
you can buy their full range of spa products at modest prices, making perfect
gifts for friends and family who can enjoy the aromatic scents of Asia in the
privacy of their homes – no matter where in the world they live.

Where are you from?
I was born in London, the product of an unlikely World War 2 romance. My
dad, from Germany, had been in the army for only two weeks when he was
taken as a prisoner of war. He went to work on my grandparents’ farm, where
he met my mum. After the war they fed to London together to marry, and
my dad tried to lose his German accent.
When did you move to Phuket?
I moved here with my partner Graham about 13 years ago.
What did you do before you came to Phuket?
I was working in IT consultancy, mainly in the fnancial sector. It was a high
pressure, but incredibly high-paying job, where you would work your nuts
of for a year or so to complete a project, then we were able to travel for two
or three months. Graham and I have been fortunate to have visited about 60
countries, including Thailand.
What made you decide to come and live here?
When we hit age 40 we started asking ourselves what on earth we were
doing in London. The quality of life there was crap. After spending three
months in India we decided to retire. We went travelling, going to Sydney,
San Diego and Thailand, then we returned to London where we got stuck for
hours in the rain in a cab from the airport that cost us about 120 bucks. We
looked at each other and said, “What the [expletive] are we doing here?” and
eventually made our way to Thailand. We spent a few months looking around
and considered living in Chiang Mai, but we chose Phuket because of its
better infrastructure.
Did you come here intending to set up a business?
No, but after about eight or nine months here we became bored so we
had to do something. It was a matter of fnding something that you could
do in Phuket and the internet was just taking of and interested us. At that
time there wasn’t much online for hotel booking so, we adopted a "poke
and hope" strategy to set up DirectRooms.com. We brought in our third
partner, Chokechai Prasertcharoensuk, who has been key in developing and
managing our technical team. Phuket is a challenging place to do business,
but the lifestyle wins hands down. We feel very privileged to live here so all
our operations remain on Phuket.
Can you tell us more about your business?
DirectRooms is a hotel comparison site where you can easily compare hotel
rates across more than 250 booking websites. We started with hotels in
Thailand but we’ve expanded to list more than 132,000 hotels worldwide,
with 1 million visitors a month. We also operate Phuket.net, which we bought
about six years ago. We have recently partnered with three top developers
to redesign the site, which is being developed as a Phuket portal. It has
real estate, a business directory, classifed ads, hotels, what's on and tours.
We’ve just launched 360-degree virtual tours of businesses, destinations and
beaches around the island. We have a fantastic team of 58 staf that is now
part of our extended family.
What’s your strategy for working with and managing people of a
diferent culture?
It’s all about tolerance and understanding, and I know that I tend to be a bit
short with people so Graham looks after the operations. We have a social
committee and we have a cook who prepares free meals for all the staf.
We’ve come to understand that working here is more about enjoying life; it’s
not all about money.
My thing is that I want to understand how things work, but after a while I came
to accept that I don’t (and never will) understand how things work here. You
need to just go with the fow. I still need to work on my anger, however.
This is a true story: Khun Choke, our partner, once told me that I needed to
reel it in. I found a book on anger management at a bookstore, but when
I went to pay for it they got the price wrong; then the credit card machine
didn’t work. In frustration I left without buying it. I can’t even get a book
about anger without getting wound up!
Whereabouts do you live in Phuket?
We live in a house right across the road from the of ce in Phuket Town.
Do you own your house or do you rent? What infuenced your choice?
We bought the house and of ce, not as an investment but for practical
reasons. “Control freak” comes to mind – I want to be able to have control of
my environment. We’ve had the house for years but just moved in a week
ago. Before we moved in, one of our staf looked out the of ce window at
about 10:30pm and saw a dripping-wet “girl” standing there. So we had to
get the ghost team in and had a ceremony that included chicken blood and
making oferings. We’re ghost-free now.
Where are your favorite places to go in Phuket?
I’m not much for going out aside from local restaurants because I don’t want to
listen to farang that want to reinvent themselves, go on about falling in love or
are depressed about their pension status. My favourites include The Gallery, Ka
Jok See, Salvatore’s, Tummour Isarn Restaurant and Mae Porn Seafood in Phuket
Town. We also like to go to Catch Beach Club and DaVinic's in Nai Harn.
What do you like most about living in Phuket?
It’s easygoing; people are relaxed and smile here. The weather is great, the sky
blue and the rain is warm. And you don’t have to worry about eating out. As
soon as you’re back in the West, you’re looking at the right side of the menu,
checking the prices.
What's the hardest thing about living here?
Very little, to be honest. We’re cocooned by the staf that take care of a lot of stuf
that we are not good at doing. And as time goes on it’s getting easier to live here,
better business infrastructure, more direct fights, more shopping choices, etc.
But if I have to say one thing, it’s been my lack of initiative to learn Thai.
Do you face any dif culties living in Phuket as a gay couple?
No, it’s probably easier here than many other places. It’s just part of our life to
be gay. We’re not really into the gay scene, never go to gay clubs etc. We’re
respectful of the local culture, so we’re not kissing or holding hands in public,
which wouldn’t really be acceptable for straight couples either.
Are you involved in any local charities, clubs or associations?
We support the Life Home Project, which is a shelter for children and women
afected by HIV/Aids, and a local Masonic charity. I’m also a member of the
local chapter of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, where we meet once a month and talk
total bollocks about food and wine.

Proper adherence to corporate governance standards is generally
accepted as a key element to the successful running of a company. At
its most basic level, corporate governance provides companies with
rules-based systems to facilitate ef ciency and transparency. As such, a
prudent investor should be aware of Thailand’s corporate governance
requirements, which are largely contained in the Civil and Commercial
Code (the “CCC”). This article will provide an overview of Thailand’s
corporate governance rules with respect to shareholders and directors
in the context of limited companies.
General
Limited companies are characterized by having capital owned
by shareholders. The CCC requires that limited companies have a
minimum of three shareholders. Shareholders exercise their power
via resolutions at shareholder meetings. Under the shareholders are
company directors, who implement shareholder decisions, among
other things. A company must have one or more directors. A limited
company’s primary governing document, which sets forth the rules for
the shareholders and directors alike, is the Articles of Association (the
“Articles”). The Articles can be specifcally tailored to suit a company’s
needs, as long as there is no confict with the law.
Shareholders’ Meetings
Shareholders’ meetings are divided into two categories – general
meetings and extraordinary meetings. A general meeting is required
by law to be held within six months after company registration.
Subsequent general meetings are then required to be held annually.
Any other shareholders’ meeting is an extraordinary meeting. Directors
can summon extraordinary meetings at their discretion, but are required
to call such meetings if the company has lost half of its capital.
The CCC provides a number of rules for conducting the general
meetings. These rules apply unless stated otherwise in a company’s
Articles. In order for the meeting to transact any business, shareholders
representing at least 25% of the company’s capital must be present. The
meetings are presided over by the directors’ chairman. The chairman
may adjourn the meeting with the consent of shareholders, but only
unfnished business can be transacted at the adjourned meeting.
The main purpose of the meetings is to decide company policy via
shareholder’s resolutions, which are decided upon by vote. Every
shareholder votes in person or by proxy. Each share carries one vote.
In case of a tie, the chairman casts the deciding vote. Most matters
are decided by a simple majority, but certain issues may require a
“supermajority”, in which 75% of the vote is needed to pass a resolution
(called a “special resolution”). For example, after the company’s initial
registration, the Articles can only be amended by special resolution.
Importantly, a court is entitled to cancel a resolution if, upon application
by a director or shareholder, it deems that the said resolution was
passed contrary to law.
Directors
While the shareholders may decide a company’s overall direction and
policy, directors provide day-to-day management (though such powers
can be delegated to corporate of cers). Directors can only be appointed
or removed by a general meeting of shareholders. Shareholders also
decide the number of directors and their remuneration. One-third of a
company’s directors are obligated under law to “retire” at certain times.
Such times include at the frst general shareholders’ meeting after
company registration, and, at the frst meeting in every subsequent
year. However, these directors are eligible for re-election.
The CCC sets forth rules governing the exercise of directors’ authority.
These rules apply unless stated otherwise in the Articles. Directors, like
shareholders, conduct business at meetings. Directors can summon
meetings at any time. Decisions are made at the meetings by a majority
of votes. In the case of an equal number of votes, the chairman casts
the deciding vote. The directors elect the chairman.
The CCC requires that directors conduct the company’s business with
a duty of care of “a careful business man”. As such, directors are jointly
responsible for: the payment of shares by shareholders being actually
made; keeping corporate books and documents required by law;
distributing dividends to shareholders; and, the proper enforcement
of shareholder resolutions. Importantly, directors are prohibited from
undertaking commercial transactions that are of the same nature and
competes with the company, unless the shareholders, via a general
meeting, consents to the transaction.
Directors are also liable to the company for acts that caused damage
to the company. As such, the company is entitled to bring a civil action
against its directors. If the company refuses to act, the shareholders can
bring the action. However, in the event that the shareholders approved
the director’s acts, cannot be held liable.
Conclusion
Corporate governance is a key element in the smooth running of
a company. Not only does it set out the rules by which a company
governs itself, it mitigates the risk of conficts of interest. Corporate
governance, when implemented correctly, helps ensure that a company
is governed in a transparent and professional manner. It is therefore
in every investor’s interest to closely comply with Thailand’s corporate
governance regime for both legal and commercial reasons.

Holiday homes Phuket has been set up specifcally to
accommodate the increasing number of clients looking
for a short term let of a luxury villa which until now had
only been available for longer terms. In order to do this we
have had to create a new division capable of tailor making
the individual specifc requirements of this new breed of
client. The benefts to both villa guests and villa owners
are equally rewarding as both parties are similarly equally
cared for and this is precisely what we have created Holiday
Homes Phuket to provide, care and hospitality customised
to our customers’ needs.
Until now in order to acquire a luxury bespoke service the
discerning traveler had to go to a 5-star branded resort
and pay handsomely for the privilege. With Holiday Homes
Phuket this is not necessary. We can provide far superior
private villas with all the luxuries and amenities, and more,
one would expect from the very best 5-star resort villa at a
fraction of the price. How is this possible? We have worked
very closely with a number of private landlords of select
villas for a number of years and as a result have been able
to fne tune the services these villas have been able to ofer
through our own management services but until now we
have only been able to provide this service to longer term
tenants. Now we have chosen to take it a step further and
our new division headed by our very experienced Rentals
Manager, Hiede Depayso, can provide a customised service
to even the most demanding of guests for periods as short
as 3 days to as long as one month or more.
Our luxury sea view villa locations include Surin, Layan,
Laguna, Mao Khao, Kata on the west coast and Cape Yamu
on the east coast. For the more discerning client we can
provide personal chefs, chaufeur, masseuse, car hire and
yacht charter, in short anything our guests wish for without
the need to rob the bank.
For enquiries please send an email to
hiede@tropical-homes or phone +66 (0)85 886 7687.

Phuket may be the ultimate beach holiday destination
in the world but there’s a lot more to experience than
just translucent blue seas, powdery white beaches and
guaranteed sunshine. Check out the following ideas for
alternative activities to add to your holiday experience.
Useful info
Phuket Butterfy Garden
This is a place of endless educational possibilities. Here you can
learn more about the miraculous miniature world of insects and
butterfies. Relax in the garden where there are literally thousands
of butterfies flling the air or busy seeking pollen among the
tropical blooms.
Located in Soi Paneung in the Sam Kong area, the garden is a fve
minute drive from Tesco Lotus. Take the road towards Phuket City
and it’s on the left-hand side. There’s a large sign indicating the
turning. Entrance for children under ten years is 150 baht, adults
and kids over ten years pay 300 baht. Open daily from 9am
until 5pm (last admission). For more
information ring +66 (0)76 210861
or visit www.phuketbutterfy.com.
Snorkelling
Crystal clear waters, beautiful coral
reefs and a prolifc marine life; it’s an
underwater paradise. Snorkelling can be done all-year-
round, but the best time is between November and April, when
there’s very little rain, and the sea is calm. Freedom Beach, Laem
Sing Beach, Ao Sane Beach, Kata Beach, Kata Noi Beach, Paradise
Beach and Tri Trang Beach all ofer good snorkelling. Coral Island,
Racha Island, Kai Island, Phi Phi Islands and the Similans, can each
be visited in a day. For some you’ll need an early start, and a fast
boat that’ll set you back about 1,500 baht for the round trip.
For those who are inclined to do their research in a more leisurely
style, or who would like to know more about Phuket’s surrounding
waters and its marine life, the Phuket Aquarium is the answer.
The aquarium, which is also a marine life research centre, is located
right on the tip of Cape Panwa and is a 13-kilometre drive from
Phuket City. There’s a local bus service to the aquarium, which leaves
Ranong Road daily from 9am to 3pm, every hour.
Phuket Aquarium at Cape Panwa
Whether you confne yourself to a walk along the beach or engage
in swimming, snorkeling and scuba-diving, there’s no doubt that
marine-related activities are one of the prime attractions for visitors
to Phuket.

Aspirin, or acetylsalicylic acid to give it its scientifc name, has
been available for over 100 years, and is widely used to treat pain,
infammation and fever. However, new research indicates that this
drug may have many other valuable properties.
It’s believed that aspirin reduces the body’s production of
prostaglandins. Too many prostaglandins can cause platelets in the
blood to stick together. This can result in the formation of blood
clots that block blood vessels, which may then trigger heart attacks
or strokes. Blood clots can also cause Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT),
commonly known as Economy-class Syndrome.
However, aspirin is not for everyone, and you should always consult
your doctor before taking it as a prophylactic. If you are using the
medication regularly, remember to advise your dentist or doctor

They say that an apple a day keeps the
doctor away. Well, it now seems that the
humble aspirin may be just as benefcial as
the proverbial apple.
of this, before surgery or a dental procedure. They can then be
prepared for any potential complications.
Taking a daily dose of aspirin is highly recommended by the
American Heart Association and other leading authorities, for
anyone who has had a heart attack or stroke, or who sufers from
unstable angina or transient ischemic attacks (mini-strokes).

If you’re going on a long fight in economy class and you believe
that you may be immobile for most of the trip, some experts
recommend taking a low dose of aspirin (approximately 100
milligrams) for two or three days before fying. This is provided that
you don’t have any stomach problems or other conditions that
would contra-indicate its use. Researchers claim that that this can
reduce your chance of developing DVT, by one third.
The research also supports taking an aspirin as soon as possible after
experiencing chest pain, which may be an indication of an acute
heart attack. Of course, this shouldn’t be a reason to delay calling
an ambulance, or otherwise getting to hospital as soon as possible.
Paramedics and ambulance staf will now routinely give patients
an aspirin if they believe a heart attack has occurred. Many attacks
are caused by a blood clot in the arteries that supply oxygen to
the heart muscle, so taking an aspirin can thin the blood and assist
in dissolving the clot thereby reducing the damage that would
otherwise result. The earlier this is done the better, and indeed it
may mean the diference between life and death.
Taking aspirin isn't advised during or after an acute or sudden stroke
prior to diagnosis, because not all strokes are caused by blood
clots. Whilst this is generally the case, some attacks may result from
ruptured blood vessels. Taking aspirin could potentially make this
type of stroke more severe. If you have had a stroke which your
doctor confrms was caused by a blood clot, he will almost certainly
recommend that you take a daily dose of aspirin to reduce the
likelihood of a recurrence.
For some people, the medication may have unwanted side-afects.
The potential benefcial efects of reducing clots by thinning the
blood may cause excessive bleeding, as it reduces the blood’s
natural ability to coagulate. Aspirin may also irritate the stomach
and cause stomach bleeding. Some may sufer from heartburn,
nausea and vomiting, and even stomach and intestinal ulcers.
Chronic alcohol abusers who take the drug may be at increased
risk of developing stomach bleeding, and sufering liver damage.
Some complain that aspirin causes a ringing in the ears, whilst
others have experienced allergic reactions or developed asthma.
To reduce the likelihood of stomach complaints and bleeding, a
special enteric-coated aspirin is available which reduces stomach
infammation. If you’re taking an aspirin regularly, then you should
use this type.
In summary, aspirin can be a lifesaver. If you’re in a risk group,
or you’ve already had a heart attack or stroke, I’d recommend
consulting with your doctor about taking one enteric-coated
aspirin a day.
