So, after a week, the half-term holiday is finally drawing to a close. On Monday, school will start, and will mark the beginning of the second half-term for term 1.
Now, there are at least 4 main events that I’m looking forward to: The Halloween Carnival, the Ekamai MUN conference, the Loy Krathong, and the Christmas Fair. But…since each of them are a bit far apart, I think I will not merge them into the great second half-term event, although the Halloween Carnival and the Ekamai MUN conference I might probably merge into super November, and great November, if Loy Krathong is not too far away.
Now, on to what’s going on during this half term…
Well, there’s not much, but…there is one, and only one, very negative thing that has happened, and that is…the annoyances by the trolls.
During this half-term holiday, the trolls have managed to launch a new wave of annoyances, including a new ask.fm spam campaign. The new wave of spam was very bad, but wasn’t as bad as the one back in May/June. And for those of you wondering, here’s the background of this new wave of annoyances…
It all started from an event in the news, the fires that took place at Khlong Toey. I didn’t know about the event until I heard it on the car radio on my way back from a bike ride in Phutthamonthon in Nakhon Pathom. I didn’t took it seriously, until…the day after, this came to my attention when someone from year 12; probably the trolls, decided to use the incident as a tool to annoy me by altering facts and accusing me of starting the fires, when…in reality it’s not true at all.
Then, after that, this false accusation began spreading very rapidly, and…it eventually spilled on to my ask.fm profile, where I received many troll messages linked to the false accusation. No matter how hard I tried in telling them to stop, they did not, and seems to intensify their claims.
Then, came another incident where, yet again, a fire at south Pataya was used as a tool to annoy me, yet again using the same method – facts alteration, but this is like a continuation of the previous case, so…there’s virtually nothing new.
Yet, as the half-term holiday progresses, the annoyances did not stop, even though I told the trolls to stop during my Pataya trip so that I can have a good trip. And…the result is, the annoyances continues throughout the whole of half-term, and caused some disturbances during my Pataya trip where I’m regularly bombarded by notifications and new email messages saying that I have a new question on ask.fm and someone has commented on my Facebook status/photo. That, combined with the amount of annoyances received during this half-term holiday, made me extremely mad, even now. If this continues, I will declare war on the trolls, and I will of course seek external help from my good friends, as…I can’t let this go on forever.
Now, let’s move on to some good things, shall we?
Well, again it’s about the Pataya trip…
The trip, I must say, isn’t that bad, although it could have gone better without the annoyances by the trolls! I stayed at Centara Grand Hotel, and…I must say, it’s a big hotel! Even the swimming pool itself was already big, with so many pools! In fact, there weren’t many, but what’s many is the sliders, but…they all lead to the very same pool that seems to go around in circle, with flowing water current. But the pool that I spend the most time is the main big pool, because that’s where the majority of people were concentrated. I do like it. There are a lot of people, especially kids (I love playing with kids), but I didn’t get a chance to make friends with most of them though. In the pool, especially in the main big pool, I just…float around, since it’s quite boring, until some random kids decided to mess with me or it’s time for me to get out.
Anyways, I guess that’s it for now…
