Compromising clip of scolded schoolboy Saucy actress Kree Phaswipitch has laid bare her feelings for a 15-year-old singer whom she flaunted as a love interest, but insisted was merely a friend.
Wattana ‘Uab Uan’ Chumsai na Ayuthaya and Kree Phaswipitch.
A sound clip is circulating on the internet, said to be of Kree chastising her schoolboy admirer, socialite Wattana “Uab Uan” Chumsai na Ayuthaya.
Uan embarrassed Kree by escorting another woman to an industry event, even as the two were supposedly still an item. Kree, who has yet to hear the clip, is threatening legal action if any more are released.
She made a back-up copy of her mobile phone conversations when she went to a shop to buy a new phone. But is not sure how the clip entered the public domain.
“This clip has the potential to do me long-term damage. I am gathering evidence, and could seek a remedy in court,” she said.
While they were still together, Kree took Uab Uan to industry functions, saying she didn’t care what people thought about their age difference.
“Fifteen is just a number,” she said, while admitting the age gap had caused communication problems. She is 13 years his senior.
“We’re just friends, but I admit he fits my specs, and who knows what the future holds,” she said in December.
Uab Uan, however, later found another older woman who took his fancy. He took Kerika “Ginny” Chortwijit, singer from the band Sweet D, to a function that Kree was also attending.
In the clip, the woman identified as Kree said the sight of another woman there with Uan humiliated her. “Just last week, you and I went to a function together. Then you take another girl to the same function I was attending,” she said.
“Let me speak plainly. If I had done such a thing to you, how would you feel?” she asked.
“I’m sorry … I really didn’t look at it that way,” replied the caller identified as Uan.
Asked after the function about where her relationship with Uan stood, Kree denied she was dumped, or that she had ended up looking silly.
“We were only ever just friends, so why should I feel angry?”
However, in the sound clip, the person identified as Kree said she can’t easily forgive Uan’s slight.
“I was stunned,” said Kree. “At least you could have told me. So many people asked me what had happened. ‘Aren’t you going out together?’ they asked. ‘How could Uan do such a thing?”‘
“OK, we’re now just friends, but people don’t yet know. I feel bad _ numb actually. It’s almost as if you brought along that woman to mock me,” said Kree.
“I really didn’t mean to do that,” Uan spluttered.
Asked after the function whom he preferred, Uan insisted Kree was merely a big sister type. “I’m closest to Ginny, though we are not yet going out with each other,” he said.
Uan, who has heard part of the clip and confirms it is him, said he called Kree to clear up any misunderstanding.
They had spoken once since the call, and Kree had met Ginny without any problem.
“I’m scared that I’ve upset her, but she won’t give me the chance to clear up the matter,” he said.
Uan and Ginny turned up together at another function last week, where Ginny denied acting as a third hand forcing Uan and Kree apart.
“Uan is my closest guy friend at the moment. Our families are happy with our relationship, but whether we will end up as boyfriend and girlfriend is a matter for the future,” she said.
Weir in the mix after Pancake
Weir in the mix after Pancake
Actor Sukollawat “Weir” Kanaros is making the most of life as a single man, saying he is too busy to forge romantic ties since his relationship with A-list actress Kemanij “Pancake” Jamikorn ended.
Last week, Weir made a rare appearance at a function amid reports that since he and Pancake split, his star has waned.
Weir denied it, saying he was making three TV soap operas at once, and doesn’t have time to meet people, including women.
However, he has bought himself a home worth almost 10 million baht to lift his spirits.
Pancake is now seeing actor and singer Arak “Pae” Amornsupasiri, in what is probably the hottest unconfirmed pairing in the industry since the days when Pancake and Weir were an item.
Weir, who was close to Pancake’s family, bought a house close to Pancake’s own, to be close to her.
When their relationship ended, he moved back into live with his manager Supachai “A” Sriwichit, who runs a talent stable from his home.
After Weir parted from Pancake, his place and Pancake’s own were too close for comfort.
Pancake bought the house from Weir, so the two would not have to meet. Weir has now bought a new place for himself with the proceeds, in the Ratchada-Rarm Intra area.
“If my mum hadn’t dragged me along, I probably wouldn’t have bought it, but now that I am there, I am happy,” he said.
“It’s small, cosy and I live alone. My neighbours are businessmen and doctor types. No one is interested in anyone else’s business … they just go to work, and come home to rest.
“Opposite my place are a couple of kids. They’re cute … they call me P Weir …
“I’m starting to decorate the place, and might ask some of my friends, who know interior design, to help,” he said, adding that while being single has its lonely moments, he was happy to focus on work for the time being.
On again, off again … on again?
On again, off again … on again?
Actress Sumontip “Koop Kip” Leuangthai is putting the hard word on former lovebird Mario Maurer.
If Mario comes back into her life, he must make clear whether it is as a mere friend, or boyfriend, she told reporters last week.
Koop Kip put their relationship on hold in February, complaining it had failed to “develop”. Although she insisted they were merely friends _ the two have known each other for six years _ few believed her.
Mario (Love of Siam, 4 Romances, Rahtree Reborn) agreed with Koop Kip, saying that at their age, talk of love was premature, as both were too busy making money.
However, Mario has said since that he wants to get back into Koop Kip’s good books.
Koop Kip, still stinging from criticism that the pair was less than honest about their relationship, has now passed the buck back to the superstar actor.
“He says he wants to go back to the way things were, but for me that means going back as friends.
“This time, he has to make it clear whether he comes back as my boyfriend, or merely a friend _ no more hiding,” she said.
Mario said he is too busy to see much of Koop Kip, but they do meet for meals. He denied they broke up to seek attention. “We have to take things gradually, but I would like our relationship to develop so that we are more than just friends,” he said.
Who’s your daddy?
A legal dispute stemming from the paternity battle between superstar Rattapoom “Film” Tokongsub and the woman who claims she bore their child is showing signs of progress.
The defamation case between Film’s boss, RS Promotion head Surachai “Hia Hor” Chetchotisak, and actress Rungnapa “Annie” Brooks could be settled outside court, observers say.
The parties met at the Thon Buri Court in Pathum Thani last month for an hour of conciliation talks. While no conclusions were reached, Hia Hor’s lawyer proposed that Annie withdraw all suits she has taken in relation to the case. In return, Hai Hor’s side would withdraw all action it has taken against her.
In October, Hia Hor suggested Annie was seeing four men late last year at the time she supposedly fell pregnant with Film’s baby.
Lawyers Association (Thon Buri) chairman Sakrit Jiamkamon, who is acting for Annie, said the talks went well. He would discuss the proposal with Annie, and the two sides would meet again on April 26.
Asia Bizz: Facebook Developing Phone Along With INQ Mobile
The worlds biggest social networking website, Facebook is reported to have been developing a phone with British phone manufacturer INQ Mobile. It is also said that it will be launching the device in the first half of 2011 in the UK, and in the US by the second half.
Facebook on the other hand has denied the claims of building a phone, but then a poll taken in the UK states that almost a quarter of Britons will wish to buy a Facebook branded phone. Others felt that buying a Facebook phone will tamper their privacy, and one way would be risky.
People felt that the new phone should have better features than the Apple iPhone, as Apple has made its iPhone compatible with almost every feature possible in the mobile phone world. Apple even has its own social website ‘Ping’, so this makes Apple a company that has a social website and a smartphone of themselves.

The last two weeks have been particular demanding for ACEG International Consulting Services. Contracted by the German government, we are building new hospitals and a central tuberculosis laboratory in North-western Pakistan. The flood with all its force has brought our projects to a halt. Some of our staff there have lost their homes, some have even lost family members. The health situation cannot be any worse. This came to my mind when I came across another project in Pakistan dealing with maternal health.
Not only in Pakistan but worldwide millions of women die or develop pre-natal illnesses. Millions of newborns also die each year due to lack of access to adequate health services. The overwhelming part of these women and babies die in developing countries.. Qualified health care staff is rare and very often concentrated on the areas in and around the capital. Out in the rural areas it all depends on an efficient communication system.
In order to improve maternal health care service in rural areas of Pakistan, the Pakistani government trained Lady Health Workers, the so-called LHWs. They provide preventive, curative and rehabilitation services. The problem was that these workers had no means to properly communicate with their supervisors in the health centers in various district capitals. Especially when it came to refer serious cases, the LHWs were more or less on their on. In a pilot project, LHWs received mobile phones for simple communication needs, but also to connect directly with hospitals and ambulances. Results show that simply satisfying communication needs at this level reduced mortalities through referring serious cases in time. The LHW pilot created another positive outcome; in an area where women are very often limited in their status and right, the ability to communicate and to quickly resolve problems improved the status of LHWs considerably. In the long run this type of simple mobile communication access may help to reduce or even close the gender gap.
Another positive example comes from Uganda where maternity health workers using mobile phones has a much longer tradition. Here, results show a dramatic decline of more than 50 percent in maternal mortality over the last three years. As in Pakistan, the program focuses on improving the basic communication and transport systems to bring to speed life-saving referrals. But this project had another very interesting objective. It was designed to bridge the distance between traditional healers and the public health services. Maternity health workers received mobiles and walkie-talkies and so did the traditional mid-wives, thus extending the maternal health service into the traditional health environment
Some of you may have been to South America, trekking through the Andes for example. You will therefore know that the more isolated the region is the longer the journey takes, sometimes up to a week. In Peru, a phone- and web- based maternal health care information and communication system was established which allows nurses, doctors and gynecologists to exchange and discuss relevant and critical information among themselves and if need be with experts in regional hospitals. Using mobile phones, Internet, satellite and fixed-line communication, or even community phones they analyze the cases in remote locations. The program not only serves to treat patients; it is also used monitor patients, and tracking of supply as well as improving disease surveillance.
In Aceh Besar in Indonesia midwives are provided with mobile phones as well in order to improve coordination and exchange of information between community and district levels. It is reported that since the introduction of modern means of communication such as mobile phones to basic health service providers in rural areas the gaps in the medical infrastructure and constraints in access –previously resulting in critically delayed interventions– have been bridged to a large extent.
In Rwanda, the Ministry of Health has issued mobile phones to over 3,700 community health workers working at grass root village health centers in the three districts of Kigali City. The phones are intended help health workers at village level send reports easily to the district health center; which will provide instant feedback to the village workers, in particular maternity health workers. This initiative comes in response to the fact that communication was rather well organized between doctors and nurses, but excluded the health workers at the grass root level. However these were considered to be at the forefront of health services in Rwanda. Including them in the communication process allows the villagers a far better access to the general health services.
I know: these are stories about basic, simple mobile communication. However, this is what millions of people around the world need most urgently today. It is the basis upon which more sophisticated smart mobile health systems may be developed and implemented.
Back to Pakistan: it is said that the monsoon rains will continue at least for another three weeks. After a first wave of death by water, the WHO expects a second wave of death soon caused by diseases. We can only try to mitigate the impact this catastrophe has on the people. Efficient communication is one important cornerstone of such an aid strategy dealing with emergency situations. Next I will provide some information about the European Space Agengy’s (ESA) program on eHealth in Sub-Saharan Africa.
