    vor 11 Jahren postete ich einen Bericht in einem Nachbarforum,
    wo es um eine th. Sekte (bz Kult) ging,

    wo der Tiger eine besondere Bedeutung spielt.

    (dies soll jetzt keine Mutmassung lostreten, dass die etwas mit den 3 verschwundenen Tieren aus dem Tiger Tempel zutun haben.

    I've just experienced and witnessed one of the weirdest evenings of my life.

    All I can do here is describe the evening’s events as I saw them as I still don’t fully understand what took place. If anyone out there can add further information I’d be grateful. And I’d like to say at this point that I have a lot of respect for the whole event and the beliefs of the people that took part. (This is not a P4P report.)

    There is a girl here that I know that recently told me that she has started to have a Hindu god 'inside' her sometimes and that she goes to 'parties' where many others become possessed by different Gods. She told me that she is one of the ‘lucky ones’ and this only happens to a very small percentage of people. After not being able to answer my many questions about this she invited me to come along to see one of these 'parties'. Well, I'm up for anything on the nights when I'm not on the prowl and on the piss and this sounded an interesting way to see a part of Thai culture that I never knew about.

    She came and collected me from my hotel tonight and then we met up with her ‘group’. This group consisted of one Thai guy (a lawyer), three Thai girls, three katoeys and ‘Papa’, the leader of the group. We then filled up two cars and drove off to the meeting which was outside Pattaya near Laem Chabeng. I was happily accepted as part of this group and was told that there was no problem with a Farang going along and that it was OK to take photos. I made a joke about a ‘black magic’ evening and me being the sacrifice to the Gods but she assured me that it was nothing like that. She said that I was just to sit and watch and ‘not to do anything if I saw anything’. I was starting to wonder how strange the evening was going to get.

    We finally arrived at the destination for today’s ‘party’ after following special symbols that had been left at road junctions. It looked like quite a big gathering which had been set up in an open marquee holding about 100 people. Before we could go in my group had to get dressed up for the occasion and they all put on saris apart from ‘Papa’ who donned some kind of animal skin costume. I didn’t have a costume because I was just a viewer but I had been told not to wear anything black.

    The set up in the tent was a band playing Muay Thai style music behind a large shrine area with lots of plastic chairs set up around three sides of the main floor area.



    The evening was already underway as we took our seats – band was playing, the MC was chanting and shouting and there were a few people in front of the shrine who would periodically throw water or what looked like flower petals over the shrine area.

    I was sat to the right of the lawyer and directly behind the three katoeys. Another group then sat next to and behind me with a small woman with dyed blonde hair taking the seat next to mine.

    Papa did the rounds, after a visit to the shrine, saying hello and ‘blessing’ all the other group elders with his hand making what I suppose is a Hindu greeting but reminded me of the klingon gesture. He then took his seat and got his group ready, blessing them and placing a red dot on the forehead.

    Here is ‘Papa’ blessing one of the Katoeys:



    Not long after, a load of firecrackers were set off, the band got louder and the MCs chanting got louder and more intense. I think it was at this point that the Gods were starting to be summoned.

    I look around and the lawyer has started to retch and convulse. A couple of the others look at him, then place themselves around. It looks like they are going to make sure he is OK but they give him two lit cigarettes and some leaves which he then smokes and chews on until he is convulsing even more, eventually spewing a small amount into a plastic bag which ahs been placed on the ground below him. One of the katoeys is also going through the same motions, while shaking and shivering a lot as well. Some other people in the crowd also have things happening to them. The woman sat next to me has stood up and started to do a slow arm waving dance and her face has contorted into a very angry expression.

    I am the only farang here. Nobody seems to mind me being here, so I decide to remain seated where I am, remain calm and just watch the proceedings. I stop taking photos now though, but the lawyer guy, who now appears OK, tells me that I can get photos at the end.

    More summoning of the Gods begins. More people in the crowd start to become ‘possessed’. Some of those that become ‘possessed’ remain in their seats, rocking back and forward, arms waving, chanting, shaking. Others walk up to the ‘dance floor’ area in front of the shrine – they walk, move and act in the character of the particular God that has got hold of them. Some bend over double, and use a walking stick. A tough looking guy in the group next to me has his fists clenched and looks angry and he slowly walks up to the dance floor, where he then starts a slow ‘arms in the air’ dance. There is a big variety of dance styles going on from contorted body shapes to graceful Thai style to Lucifer techno style. The age range of the ‘possessed’ varies from kids of about eight years old to old women of about eighty. There are different costumes for the different groups depending on the area of Gods they become are from. My group is Hindu, others might be Chinese or different Thai Gods.

    At the height of the summonings I do start to worry that mass hysteria might break out. All of a sudden the woman next to me lets out a blood curdling scream. people look around at her but she is OK – she is just possessed. (I find out afterwards that she may have been possessed by some monkey God). She screams again. A guy somewhere else starts to bark. ‘Papa’ has started ringing a bell and repeatedly blowing on a seashell horn. The lawyer has got an ecstatic grin on his face and has started to giggle away and laugh at people – he has become ‘possessed’ by a child Hindu God and is acting like he is three years old because that is how old the God is. The others give him a can of fanta and keep him amused. Those that are ‘possessed’ are taken care of by those that aren’t so they don’t do injury to themselves from the rocking and convulsing that they are not in control of.




    After over an hour and a half of the summonings things start to die down a bit. Papa receives an envelope from somebody which is his invite for his group to go to the next meeting.

    It looks like the party will continue for a while yet but our group makes our way to the cars for the journey back to Pattaya. We then went for some food at a place opposite Lolita’s. Papa asks me to come to the next meeting – it is in Rayong at eight the next morning. I politely decline, saying that I’ll still be sleeping at that time. I feel privileged to have seen this but I don’t want to become a regular. During the meal I try to explain that I don’t have religion. Papa is an interesting guy – he has done all sorts of jobs in his time from seismic work on boats to managing supplies for U.S. forces during the Vietnam war. He went through a ‘change’ before becoming what he is now, having spent three years in the jungle first clearing his mind and devoting himself. After paying for the meal to thank them for the evening we said our goodbyes but I think I have arranged to go bowling with papa and the lawyer next week…..

    What can I say?... Certainly a different night from the usual night out in Pattaya and I do feel honoured to have seen it. I’ve done a search on the internet but not found that much information about it all.

    Maybe I don’t need to know that much – I might just end up getting more confused the more I try to find out about it.

    Als ich heute diese Tiger Bekleidung wieder sah, musste ich natürlich gleich an den damaligen Beitrag denken.

    In diesem Video,
    das keine 24 h online ist,
    geht es um Selbstentzündungen, aber auch diesen Tiger Kult - über 2.5 Mio mal aufgerufen bis jetzt,
    also grosses feedback aus Thailand.



    ob dieser Tiger Kult (2.03 Minute) jetzt einen Bezug ausschliesslich zu Nahkon Si Thammerat hat,
    oder ob in Surathani oder Samui die Gruppe genauso vertreten ist,
    wie in Pattaya seinerzeit, kann ev. benni etwas dazu sagen.

    Hooters beach heritage set to shine amid one of Asia’s premier dining and entertainment resort destinations
    Atlanta, GA (RestaurantNews.com) Hooters today revealed plans to open the largest international Hooters location in Pattaya, Thailand, later this year. Hooters franchisee Destination Resorts Co., Ltd., brings the 11,000 square foot, 564-seat Hooters location to Pattaya, a thriving tourist destination and one of Asia’s most popular dining and entertainment resorts. The venture is part of a 30 restaurant development agreement recently signed by Destination Resorts Co. to expand Hooters presence throughout Southeast Asia.
    “Gary Murray and his talented team at Destination Resorts Co. are exemplary partners to bring this iconic Hooters to such a flagship market in the Southeast Asia region,” said Mark Whittle, senior vice president of global development, Hooters of America, LLC.
    Hooters Pattaya is slated to open in early August on Beach Road, directly across from Pattaya Beach along the Gulf of Thailand. Approximately one hour from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, Pattaya is a lively beach town that draws visitors from around the world. The contemporary space will feature two bars, 50 high-definition televisions and two outdoor patios where guests can relax and take in the scenic views. The “Wild West” themed restaurant will allow locals and tourists to experience great fun, delicious food, world-famous chicken wings and unrivalled Hooters Girl hospitality.
    “With the popularity of the Pattaya Beach area and its multicultural mix of locals, tourists and expats, we saw it as the ideal setting for one of the world’s largest Hooters,” said Gary Murray, CEO, Destination Resorts Co. “We successfully introduced the Hooters dining concept to Thailand last year with Hooters Phuket, and look forward to expanding our footprint in the second most visited city in Thailand.”
    Recruitment for more than 75 local Hooters Girls from Pattaya and neighboring cities begins in April. A hiring road tour is scheduled to pass through Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen, Korat, Pattaya and Udon Thani in search of fun, friendly and outgoing personalities to sport the iconic Orange Shorts and represent the global Hooters brand. The future Miss Hooters International 2015, who will be crowned in June during the annual Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant in Las Vegas, will play a prominent role at the Hooters of Pattaya grand opening celebration.
    Hooters is continually opening restaurants and is actively seeking qualified franchise partners to open new locations in select markets across the U.S. and around the globe. For more information about becoming a Hooters franchisee, visithttp://franchising.hooters.com.

    War ja längst überfällig! Mädels in Hot Pants und zwei Nummern zu kleinem Oberteil sind ja so etwas von Mangelware im Seebad! Da werden jetzt die Zahlen männlicher Touristen sofort steigen!

    Anscheinend hat dieser Tiger sich zu Lebzeiten zur Tarnung ein Leopardenfell übergezogen.
