Dating in Thailand: The Love Between Thai Women and Foreigners

Ahh, Thailand. The land of smiles. One of the most visited countries in Asia by expats and tourists alike. What is it with this country that makes it so popular with them? For most, it is usually because of the beautiful beaches, affordable travel costs, and the attractive and hospitable locals. But a topic that’s always been an attention grabber is Thailand’s dating scene.

So this is going to get a bit ugly here, I will try not to use too many swear words though.

Apparently, however, that was not the case and, like Whitewalkers, these horror shows simply don’t die off. What I am talking about? Online Business – Get rich quick scams. They come by different names but all promise and look, more…

Living with Depression (in Thailand)

Mental health has become quite a topic over the past few years as we have seen many people suffering from depressive disorder or other mental health issues taking their own lives (last year it was Chester Bennington of Linkin’ Park as most ‘famous’ example). Even though the news talked about it for a while, by now it’s almost all completely forgotten again and nobody seems to care anymore. Here in Thailand old traditional values and thought processes are still being valued and held high and therefore ‘modern’ diseases such as…

Latest News: Thailand to save the environment one plastic bag at a time.

The F-Word section is dedicated to critical thoughts and opinions. The F-Word stands for Farang Word in this case since a lot of issues are usually “solved” by saying we have different cultural backgrounds. Sometimes that just doesn’t do the trick. We try to show some problems – and maybe even get people to think about those things mentioned. The F-Word might be a bit provocative or sarcastic at times – it is however not meant to offend anyone. Those issues are just being raised because we care – if…

9 ways how Thailand helped to improve my mindfulness

One thing that many of my friends and family keep telling me ever since I moved to Thailand is that I am more ‘relaxed’ now. Less stressed. And smile more. Now one could say: Of course. It’s the Land Of Smile. You gotta be all happy and smiley. Plus you’re a foreigner there. So you earn more and have a better live than the locals anyways. Wrong! First I don’t earn more than Thais in the same position and secondly I live a simple, ‘normal’ life here and don’t take…

Punrith Muay Thai Gym [review]

While on my muay thai journey I come across new muay thai gyms rather frequently. I don’t always give every single gym a try, but since Punrith Muay Thai Gym is located extremely close to my home turf I decided to give it a try. Here’s my impression. Atmosphere Punrith Muay Thai The atmosphere upon walking in is alright. I kind of like the old-school flair that combines some new equipment with lots of old-school stuff. The weight area is a bit fucked up, but not too bad, so that…

Max Moo Ka Ta Bangkok [review]

Time for some good food! Whenever I thoughts like this pop into my head there are a few different food options coming to mind but, quite frankly, one of the most prevalent options usually is Moo Ka Ta. I don’t always give in to that urge as it is, obviously, not the healthiest of options, but a very satisfying one once you go for it. More or less by chance I now came across a Moo Ka Ta place around my home turf of Saphan Kwai (BTS stop between Ari…

6 things to consider when celebrating Songkran

Woohooo. It’s Songkran season! Songkran is the Thai New Year and, since it is the most important festival of the year, it comes with 3 official public holidays (and more private holidays) in tow. Everybody loves Songkran and everybody knows it. Ask people what they think or know about Songkran, and not matter whether it is a foreigner or Thai, they will probably say: Water, Party, Holidays (hopefully followed by ‘Family Time’ or something nice like that). Songkran parties can be found literally everywhere. On the streets, temples, in front…
