Freedom on the Net: Thailand falls further

Freedom House, an organisation that looks into press freedom and freedom of speech, just published the 2017 iteration of its annual “Freedom on the net” report. Said report shows Thailand being further on the decline, ranking now 67/100. The introduction as per Freedom House reads: Internet freedom declined to its lowest level yet in 2017, continuing a downward spiral that began when the junta seized power. Censorship increased following the death of the king, and a slew of laws codified repressive measures introduced under a state of emergency. Thailand entered…

Sin Sod – Thai Dowry – Buying a wife in Thailand?

Let’s buy a wife in Thailand, right? Yeah!

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…

Healthy Food Delivery in Bangkok – CLEANFit Delivery [review]

In my quest to stay healthy and fit I don’t only focus on sports (e.g. Muay Thai, Climbing, Volleyball, Running) but also try to look after my nutrition. Having that said, this last part certainly is the worst of them all. While I can handle getting punched, kicked or hanging from (artificial rocks) I’m really bad at looking after my nutrition. That’s why I decided to try some meal prep services. One of the few choices that popped up when looking for services that don’t only focus on expats and don’t have…

Bangkok MRT revamps Metro Mall – Now with work places & WiFi

Gone are the days of dark and crappy tunnels that lead you to the subway system. While the MRT here in Bangkok always tried to have a somewhat more pleasant underground area, it mostly failed in transmitting a welcoming feeling due to feeling too sterile. This now all seems to change with the revamping of the MRT Metro Malls in the city of angels. One can find now friendly colors, fancy layouts, and comfortable chairs, and working spots. You even have some electricity outlets and free wifi for two hours…
