‘Show No Limit’ Thai TV Show – An Update on the 85000 baht I found!

In February 2009 I found 85000 baht cash at an ATM in front of the Sony Music building in Bangkok. I called my friend Chonrada at Sony and with the help of the building staff we managed to get the cash back to its rightful owner later that evening.

It turns out the guy that lost the money was a fellow working musician and also the voice of Steve Jobs (Apple Computers) in Thailand! It seems he had gone down to withdraw all that money for his employer and then had absent mindedly gone home without taking it with him! In the next few days he sent some chocolates and flowers and his company called up to thank us for our honesty too which is really sweet because I think everyone would have done the same thing in our situation. I’m just glad they got the money back and nobody got in to trouble!

When I got back to Thailand in August I received another surprise – Chonrada showed me this video clip which had aired earlier in the year. It’s all in Thai I’m afraid so a lot of you won’t understand it but I think you’ll get the gist. Listen out for the Thai Steve Jobs – it’s not everyday you get a thank you message from him! haha :)

I tried to understand, but they were speaking too quickly for me. I only got a few words!

I am sure a lot of people wouldn’t have done the same thing. Well done John!!
