This is very funny...about Ratt/Bkk

I just did a search on yahoo for Ratt's website, and using the search words Ratt & Bangkok. The first 3 or 4 sights that come up are references back to the Fodors Forum, and then there is this one from some kind of blog which seems to also be referring to our beloved forum:

" If you spend time trolling for information about the seedier side of Bangkok, you might not be surprised to encounter a passage like this in a public forum: “About Ratt’s sister Poon. I know someone posted a few weeks ago that they were using her. Would love to hear any reports. Also, while I have Ratt for several days in Bangkok, I have her husband for one. Has anyone had him?” Escort reviews for sick intrafamily hair-band sexcapades? Get your mind out of the gutter and/or 80s nostalgia! Ratt and Poon (plus Ratt’s husband Nick) are universally recommended driver-guides for Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Ratt in particular seems a veritable saint, receiving high marks in recent trip reports. Driving/touring rates top out at 500 baht per hour (a bit over $12 US), but most are half that or less. If you have trouble contacting Ratt through her site, try surfing the Fodor’s forums for recent updates … as her fame spreads far and wide, she’s starting to turn away customers."

I would love too see how she spells her name in thai. I have a strange feeling RATT.. is not correct . for one TT is not commenly used in any phonetics when translating thai to english, it eitthe t or th. or d. and if Im not mistaken words that end in T are pronouned as d

this has actually bugged me for a while now. I have a feeling her name is pronounsed rad. or lad the "a" sounding like "alarm" but pronouned quickly and sharply.

and I get the feeling she tried too pronouse her name but farangs could not pronouced it and she justt said "mai pen raai". and let every one calll he
ratt as in the only big hair band which I liked, heck the guy ate a rat in the video how can you beat. that.

The true thaiis please help out... I am an absulute moran when it comes too thai.

Her address in her email says
Kantapiyo Vimonrat. I will have to ask her when I get there how to really say her name.
