    Thai Ghosts and Their Mysterious Power

    Sale! $6.00 $4.00

    We cannot deny the significance of ghosts in Asian societies, because they play an essential part in our lives on an almost daily basis.
    Stepping into a plane heading to Thailand, you will be protected by benevolent ghosts immediately and automatically.

    They have the responsibility to protect you and help you without request. Most importantly, they will drive away the malevolent ghosts who may cause inconveniences to you. In Thailand, ghosts have their own specific duties to protect you.

    For example, during travelling you have to depend on the ghosts of vehicles, or Mae Ya Narng, the household ghosts, and ghosts of the forest. You need pay no extra charge because their help is complimentary. So you should not be afraid of them, but don’t insult them. The friendly ghosts always welcome you to the land of smiles and the land of a hundred ghosts.

    That is why I’ve dedicated this effort to telling you about ghosts. I must live with ghosts all my life; I cannot deny them or dissociate myself from them…

    Based on personal experiences, verbal and written evidence, and word of mouth. The first ever written by a Thai author who confronted ghosts at young age.

  • Origin of the Tai People, Volume 8―Early Tai Kingdoms of the BC Period

    Origin of the Tai People 8―Early Tai Kingdoms of the BC Period gives detailed information about the current academic knowledge of the various states that were established and governed by ethnic Tai people in the region of modern China, a long time before the first Han Chinese entered the area.
    Alone with the deciphering of the human DNA we are now in a position to know more precisely about our own biogenesis and about our migration routes within the territory of East Asia and mainland Southeast Asia.
    Today it is generally accepted that the populations inhabiting southern China and most parts of the eastern lands between the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers in the 2nd and 3rd millennia BC and before spoke languages that were not related to Chinese and the early principal states or kingdoms in this region were often conglomerations of distinct ethnic peoples under the leadership of a politically dominant ethnic group.
    This work is part of the discussion about the achievements of the Tai people in their ancient seats before the ethnic Han Chinese appeared in their various habitats in much later times of history and established their first Chinese Empire in 221 BC.
    The text is supported with plenty of images.

    Praise for the Golden Triangle Trilogy.

    ‘Hurst’s writing is compelling, a drama of considerable suspense; akin to 007 with canny Ian Fleming style plot building intact. Hurst achieves a level of authenticity that armchair detective writers can’t hope to match.’ The Nation

    ‘A fast-paced page turner. Hurst’s writing shows a real inside knowledge of the drug business; nail biting, irresistible.’ Goodreads UK

    Awa Maru – Titanic of Japan

    Sale! $2.99$12.99

    In 1945 as the Japanese Empire in South East Asia started to crumble, the Japanese communities began desperate scrambles for passages on any available vessels back to Japan.
    A Japanese hospital ship, the Awa Maru was given a guarantee of safe passage to 2007 Japanese civilians and military personnel who had been ‘fortunate’ enough to secure places on board. On the 27th of March 1945, amidst much joy and tears of farewell, the ship set sail from Singapore en route to Japan carrying some men but mostly women and children. The scramble for passages had been fierce and selective and the 2007 souls on board counted themselves very lucky to have been selected for the trip home.
    But as the Awa Maru sped northwards towards the coast of China, a series of circumstances emanating from a sudden changed course and miscommunications of cable messages changed their luck into a horrific and sinister tragedy.
    On the 1st of April 1945 in the dead of night, the ‘ghost ship’ with its eerie illuminated white crosses shrouded in thick fog was mistaken for a military vessel and torpedoed by an American submarine ‘Queenfish’. It sank within minutes taking almost all of the 2007 passengers to their watery graves.
    This is the gripping story of the Awa Maru, the little known Titanic of Japan, for the first time told in this book. We follow the journey of Kyoko Tanaka, whose parents and brother had been passengers on the Awa Maru as she set sail on her own voyage of discovery. She travels from Japan to Singapore in search of the truth and a ‘piece of her history’ and makes poignant and touching discoveries of the lives of her parents and some of the other families as they prepared to board the Awa Maru.
    The lives of the doomed passengers of the Awa Maru and the events of that horrific night when they perished are all told in this book as never before.

    The Capital’s Top 60 Seaside Escapes
    Searching for the Perfect “Top” Beach
    Whatever your idea of the perfect Seaside Escape, the Philippines is well placed to provide the answer. 
     
    It is a 1,800 km / 1,200 m long archipelago of 7,107 tropical islands, every one offering the chance to get away – soft sand beaches with crystalline waters protected by brilliant coral reefs, sheltered by swaying palm trees.
     
    The big island of Luzon, the largest of the lot, has the widest variety of escapes. Luzon is well known for its magnificent inland attractions – from Manila, the country’s capital, to mountainous rice terraces and spectacular volcanoes – but it remains a tropical island with 5,000 km / 3,000 miles of coastline – indented with bays and coves – plus 100s of smaller, off-shore islands – all harbouring wonderful Top Beaches.
     
    Manila makes the logical starting point for visits to all of these Top Beaches because it is the first port of call for most visitors to the country and the starting point for a network of roads which reach every corner of the island.
