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…

Hitachi – The future is open to suggestions

This post is sponsored by Hitachi Asia Ltd.  Mankind has come far over the past few hundred years and the rate in which we develop is nothing short of amazing. IBM researchers even expect us, humankind, to find more ways to disrupt technology within the next 50 years than we’ve seen in all of history before. One of the areas with the most potential to disruption is certainly the area of robotics. Who hasn’t watched Will Smith in iRobot and thought ‘that would be cool (or scary, depending on which…

DD Fitness Bangkok – Fitness Studio Review

Finally I found the motivation to change gyms. I haven’t been really happy with my membership at Atrium Athletic / Health Club for quite a while as it felt like they’re more focusing on appealing to an upper class audience who prefers to take pics of themselves in the gym rather than towards people who actually want to work out. Also the trainers and staff there were mostly (2 of them were super nice though) rather unfriendly and ignorant in the end. Those reasons above let me to look for…

Digital in Southeast Asia & Thailand 2018

Another year, another break down by We Are Social and Hootsuite. An incredibly extensive collection of data and information in regards to the digital usage around the world and, in this regard, Southeast Asia.

Bang Por Beach Koh Samui Traveling 

Smoking ban at beaches from February onwards

As previously announced (Thailand to implement smoking ban on beaches) a smoking ban will be implemented on beaches in Thailand starting 1st February 2018. 24 beaches will be the first ones to make it illegal to smoke and litter (!!). If you’re caught you might face a fine of up to 100,000 THB and / or a year in prison. That’s probably not worth it! A few beaches tested the new rules over the past three months and violators were only given a warning, starting February it will be serious…

Why controversial youtubers are successful in Asia

One of the few things that has always puzzled me since moving to Asia is why ‘controversial’ youtubers or social media icons are so successful. The beginning of 2018 now brought us a case where Asia, and the world, lost their shit over another controversial youtube video by a guy who’s infamous for making ‘controversial’ videos which happened to take place within Asia.And while the outcry was huge and loud, his channel still gained lots of subscribers, many of them from Asia. A little surprisingly Logan Paul is not the…

Vaping in Thailand

With Vaping becoming more and more popular many travelers as well as residents in Thailand forget one important thing: Vaping is banned in Thailand! Unlike some panic inducing forums might want to make you believe that’s not a new rule though, that has been the case since 2014. Now I don’t want to get into more details about whether or not that makes sense or not, you simply have to be aware of the fact that it is, in fact, not allowed here. Back from when Thailand outlawed the import…
