Former Pattaya Times publisher is back on the internet and engaged in a reputation recovery bid as his trial continues over his alleged extortion of a health clinic in Pattaya.

Shaved suited and gonged Noyes is also promoting ‘Spice’ magazine once billed as Thailand’s biggest gay magazine showing he is an all-round tolerant kind of guy.

This is odd because he sent me a summons and a similar summons to an English teacher in Thailand furiously rejecting any idea that he could gay and any such suggestion was highly libelous.  Gay friendly?

He is suing over a joke photo-shopped picture pretending to show him at a gay parade.

But never mind ‘Spice’ magazine does not exist and indeed nor does the Pattaya Times any more. He has driven both into oblivion.


He also says his work with the Optimists, the Rotary Club, and the Pattaya Expats Club has brought him many friends in Pattaya.

Perhaps, but not at the Optimists Club, which was essentially closed down by  Optimists International for nonpayment of fees, or at the Pattaya City Expats Club which failed to elect him into any position, or the Rotary Club which has not admitted him.

He founded a local branch of  the Optimists  in Pattaya but it did not last a year though it had some interesting members.

Noyes has also tried to clone this website here where he records I have been sent to jail. Wishful thinking I believe.

Leading citizen of Thailand? – Some mistake surely.

In Pattaya Court Drew Noyes and his common law wife Wanrapa Boonsu are charged with attempting to extort the Thonglor Clinic, Jomtien, initally asking for 7 million baht to stave off a police raid (where improper substances would presumably be found) and bad publicity in their Pattaya Times newspaper.

Noyes is also promoting his One Stop Service Center in Thepprasit Road, Pattaya. He says: “The PAPPA staff, taken over by One Stop Legal Services division, are among the most experienced legal services teams in Thailand”.

This sounds a little bit odd as on several occasions his lawyers have failed to turn up in court. His long term litigator has packed his bags – and in Koh Samui he is relying on former convict Brian Goudie for his legal advice.

Finally:  ‘One Stop Legal Services is a well-respected, American-managed firm with office in both Pattaya and Bangkok, Thailand.’

Reader competition –

  1. I think the GONG is for frequent purchases from 7-11 stores and the office for One Stop Legal Services is a card-board box in the middle of Klong Toey. Do I win anything?

  2. The One Stop Legal Bangkok office can be found in the Pattaya Times corporation building that Noyes runs his imaginary TITS radio and television from. In his imagination. I win because that is the truth. It only existts in his imagination.
    He was telling everyone at the expats club years ago about this fantasy. It was only because a Danish fella called Niels actually had a tv/radio station and if Niels had tv radio then Noyes did too. He brought his barely readable newspaper in to the meetings and, at the time didn't know that everybody was laughing behind his back, as if he could run a tv/radio when he could not even produce a newspaper that was readable. His photo was on every page. Full of shots where he had jumped in photos with the mayor etc. He was a laughing stock. And now years later he is continuing with thie ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT.
    I am not sure where the gong is from, maybe he picked it up from a gay parade.
    I win, the Bangkok office is in his imagination, like just about everything else. My 3 year old daughter tells more believable lies.

  3. The One stop legal services office in Bangkok is indeed in his imagination.
    The ''award'' he is wearing isn't in fact an award. it's actually the ribbon given to EVERY amateur member of the the Chaine des Rotisseurs a gastronomic society. So really it's about as useful as all his other awards.

  4. Andrew, it might be that Somchai's connection to the gay world is simply being pragmatic.

    With his trial on charges of extortion only a matter of days away, he perhaps understands that he may have a very short golden moment ahead.

    Those brief few days of mystery and the promise of an uncharted passage in the form of a new arrival in the exercise yard.

    To be exposed at last, the man behind Somchai.

  5. The award may be the prestigious Mangus Evans Resort and Spa Jomtien award for sticking to your story, no matter how many people have known the truth for many years. Sticking to it for years.
    I hear it was awarded personally by the great Mangus Evans at the One Stop Shit Shop in the prestigious Sukhumvit road office in Bangkok. Mangus was hiding behind the curtain in the photo above standing with on his hand sticking out, softly carressing his rear, which is why he has that look on his face.
    Mangus is expected to be knighted any day now, by the Philippine Rissoles. Bill Clinton and his nephew are said to be attending along with Somchai and Stan Longly. Drew wont make it that day as he has an appointment with Yingluck Shinawatra to discuss how old foreign husbands of young Thai women from Pattaya beer bars can get divorced without having to give them a house or pay any child support. How to have as many mia nois as you can handle without having to buy them all houses.
    A top Chonburi judge was also rumored to have attended the big night and was seen taking notes for his soon to be released book, COMPLETE AND UTTER BULLSHIT FROM A WIFE BEATING DISILLUSIONED COMPULSIVE LIAR AND PARATROOPER

  6. In the Noyes Reality building that despite looking like a 2 bedroom building repossesed from a trailer park sitting in an abandoned field, according to some employs 80 staff with a turnover of millions?

  7. A shared award for starting a childrens charity with Brian Wright which he was voted out of? For never donating 1 baht or even paying his membership fees despite all the happy snaps he published of himself in his own newspaper?

  8. Gay friendly? The following is from the Sociopath World website.
    Sociopathy is a personality disorder. We are unusually impressionable, very flexible with our sense of self, and with our defining characteristics. Because we don't have a rigid self-image or worldview, we don't observe social norms, we don't have a moral compass, and we have a fluid definition of right and wrong. We can also be shapeshifters, smooth-talking, and charming. We do not have an established default position on anything. This extends, at least in some degree, to our sexuality.

    The original diagnostic and statistical manual (DSM), released in 1952, listed homosexuality as a sociopathic personality disturbance. The connection between the two was subsequently removed due to protests from the gay community that homosexuality was being equated with sociopathy. Many have commented since that sociopaths seem to have no particular sexual identity, that even the term bisexual is misleading as it implies some sort of a preference, albeit a shared one, and that "equal opportunity" is a more apt label. In fact, the sociopath seems to be the bonobo of the human world — frequent, casual, utilitarian sex. As one person reasoned, "such an individual, in their quest for dominance and power would not feel the need to discriminate according to gender."

    I was thinking about all of this while reading an article on Sir Laurence Olivier's sexual predilections. Although married three times, he apparently also had many male interests, one of whom explained it as follows:
    "He's like a blank page and he'll be whatever you want him to be. He'll wait for you to give him a cue, and then he'll try to be that sort of person."
    Maybe larry wasn't a sociopath, maybe he was, but he shared with sociopaths the common characteristic of a weak sense of self, and he illustrates well how that might play out with one's sexual identity. In any case, the lesson learned here is not only does being a sociopath potentially make you a great thespian, it also gives new meaning to the old consolation, "there are plenty more fish in the sea.

    1. Very interesting insight Elfie. It makes you think.
      Gay friendly?
      A gay mag.
      Gives flowers to men.
      A "gentlemans" club in Pattayaland, gay district.
      Pink shirts.
      Beauty clinics.
      Outrage at the suggestion he is gay.

    2. Many LGB individuals report developmental histories with difficulty
      acknowledging their homosexuality, either to themselves or to others.
      This is because, starting in childhood, LGB individuals are often
      subjected to antihomosexual attitudes, not only from strangers, but also
      from their own families and communities. The childhood need to hide may persist into adulthood, leading many LGB individuals to conceal important aspects of themselves.
      There are a range of homosexual identities that describe an individual’s
      awareness and acceptance of same-sex attractions. Closeted individuals
      cannot acknowledge homoerotic feelings, attractions and fantasies
      to themselves. They cannot or will not integrate homosexuality into
      their public personae and these feelings must be dissociated out of
      conscious awareness.
      Some gay men, before coming out, were either gay-baiters or
      gay-bashers. To maintain a psychological distance from their own
      homoerotic feelings, they also exhibit dissociative tendencies. Attacking
      those perceived to be gay can serve several functions. One penile
      plethysmography study indicated that men with strong antihomosexual
      beliefs actually had significant homosexual arousal patterns. Interpersonally, strong antihomosexual feelings may represent an effort to control perceptions of a gay-basher’s own sexual identity. If they attack gay people, others will not think of them as gay.

    3. Well, it seems that this is the most conclusive, brilliant and well detailed analysis on the subject, there isn't much more to say, now it is up to each one to reflect on the explanation and draw one's own interpretations from personal knowledge of the man in discussion…

  9. Reading about these men in Pattaya is sickening, it's an absolute shame Thailand's Immigration can't bolster up enough face and expel this vermin from the Kingdom. Andrew great reporting as usual, sorry you have had to endure such illogical treatment from the Thai Courts in the past.. Thai Thai police and immigration should be awarding you with a medal, unfortunately greed over comes most Thai Officials..

  10. I wonder who a man like Somchai turns to when he needs someone he can trust. Someone he can really trust, for example with taking care of his family, finances and business interests if, for some reason, he himself is otherwise disposed.

    Somchai surely knows as well as anyone that in Thailand, vulnerable people have little or no protection from abuse by criminals, someone trusted to take care of personal matters can too often use lax law enforcement to rob, and abuse their position of trust.

    Something of great concern, I'm sure, to anyone facing judgement in a court of law on allegations of serious crimes.

    Maybe a friend with direct experience of 'helping' foreigners in Thailand could come to his aid. A man anyone might trust with their life savings, business and the welfare of loved ones.
