Boulle’s idea for the book is certainly intriguing, but until the last few pages, it lacks drama. For such a short book , I thought Boulle repeated himself, particularly about how great western engineering was, and how the British soldier was such a better example of humanity than his Japanese counterpart. I could make allowances for some of this–but the repetition of this theme throughout gave the book a xenophobic cast that detracted from the story. No doubt Boulle’s own experiences gave him a jaundiced view of the Japanese , so I certainly don’t begrudge him his opinions, I just thought the ideas were overelaborated in the book. I decided to finally read this « classic » after a trip to Bangkok late last year.
Speedy and Stoan created this hip hop division to cater especially for talented hi hop artists such as Ab Crazy.

Fourteen years earlier, South Africans had witnessed the formal demise of apartheid. On April 27, 1994, people of all races went to the ballot box in the country’s first ever democratic election. In the spirit of reconciliation, my family’s longtime domestic worker, Johanna , accompanied my mother to the voting station. Nelson Mandela was inaugurated as South Africa’s first black president a few weeks later, and for a moment people of all backgrounds bathed in the glow of our nascent democracy. In my mind I think of this as snaredrum house, because of the snare patterns, which people often say ‘soca’ to talk about it. This really doesn’t sound like soca at all but it DOES sound a lot like what they’re calling Funky in London, especially the beats.
Many stay overnight at the River Kwai Village Hotel, a luxurious jungle resort 70 kilometres from the metal bridge on the River Kwai. Every night as “entertainment” the hotel shows a video of the Hollywood movie that got it all so wrong. The prisoners first constructed a large wooden bridge over the river, and this took its first train in February 1943.
Recently there are a lot of police forces and fences because of the protests. Both police and protesters wearing black and masks can look intimidating and you definitely won’t feel safe walking around. The pleasure of drinking and hanging out is hence diminished by the strange conflicting atmosphere. There are many nice new hip and trendy areas to eat and drink such as Kennedy Town, Sheung Wan and Sai Ying Pun. There are times I pass through LKF and found it like a ghost town. Yet rat alley in LKF offer a great range of exotic cuisines such as Thai, Malaysian, Nepalese, and other South East Asian food.
