So to try and entice people to this seminar you give away a prize of a night's stay in a hotel?? Gee! Wow!! I wonder, is that one of the "approved" quarantine hotels? Phuket used to be an attractive place to live, last century. It's gone to the dogs in a big way now. Why anyone would want to invest in such a corrupt system is beyond me.

A breakfast worth B5,000 ??
What will unemployed Thai, not sufficient support by Government, with not regular daily food on the table think/feel if they read this? Thailand in French Marie-Antoinette time, just a few centuries later.
