Phuket Governor,.. another beach victim due to partly your laziness and not doing to prevent anything during your horrible year on Phuket. It seems the established Phuket Officials clan not took you serious and in so many ways just ignored your governor orders.  Orders? Haha, straight mutiny against orders. Next Governor comes from a soft and sweet Province. What tools he brings?
