Nice to see a phuket airport staff member to be rewarded for her honesty
But that such need a photo with the whole airport brass is funny
Oh oh, what a self satisfaction chance to be on a photo
Now, why is Smart Phuket still accept generations old polluting aircrafts to touch down on Phuket?
Think about health impact on Phuket citizens
Ever think about that for a next photo?
