At the time of writing there are several movies in the making – luckily for you, my-thai.org got his hands on a leaked script of the upcoming blockbuster featuring this real life Thai drama.…

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…

No Air No Air – Bangkok (Thailand) & Air Pollution

 What do you think when you hear Bangkok? *Enter 283 ‘Hangover’ references* and then? Streetfood? Temples? Lots of people? Smiles? Or if you’re looking at it from a different angle: Girls, gays, ladyboys, party, nightlife? All that has become synonymous with Bangkok, The City Of Angels. But if you ask me, or many of the other ‘expats’ (not a favorite word of mine) who made Bangkok their home, they might answer something differently. What many of us might say by now, especially these days, is “coughing, terrible air quality, fear…

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…

Off Topic: Chester Bennington, suicide, mental health.

It’s been around three weeks since Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin’ Park, took his own life and became the latest celebrity to fall victim to depression and succumb to suicidal thoughts. Like many others I was shocked when I read the news that morning. I woke up and my newsfeed was full with RIP Chester posts. I think I felt similar to most people my age who, more or less, grew up with Linkin’ Park. I didn’t write anything back then as I didn’t feel like another article that…

Healthy Meal Prep Delivery in Bangkok – Clean Food House

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…
