The art of self-isolation

Photo by cottonbro from Pexels At the start of this year, such a set of words like this being said, you would have been looked at with a crazy stare and people wondering what sort of drugs you were on. Since that point, well for many until a vaccination comes, self-isolating is something that needs to done to preserve your health. So out at our village, I have closed our front gate, advised...

Self Isolation

It has been three months since I have written anything. I had a very bad depressive episode and it took quite some time for the drugs I was taking to work. The phase has past and I am doing much better now but boy, has the world changed a lot in these three months. I only in the last few weeks have made grand steps in getting better as the depression was deep and for a period of time, I was...

Depression

I have not written for some time as I have been sick. The last four months have been a hard slog as I have been very depressed and over the last week, my mood has been very unstable. I think I am going now through a mixed state (between depression and hypomania) because at times I feel like I am touching God and I want to be famous. Yet then a few hours later I am just depressed and have no...

The Pioneering Spirit

Going to be a different post today. I just finished watching “Hell on Wheels”, and it got to do a lot of thinking. What makes a person have so much drive to do such an endeavor as build the Trans-Pacific Railroad? What makes people pack up and travel halfway around the world like the Irish and the Chinese did. Was it due to the sickening poverty and war or was it is a lust for...

Trip To Uttaradit

Yesterday was a sad day. We drove East to Uttaradit. The Labrador that we have had for three years went to a new home on a Duriun Farm to one of Fhon’s good friends. I have not been well enough over the last four months to take care of the dog properly and we decided it was much better for the dog to have wide-open spaces with a friend that was totally in love with Labradors. Fhon cried for...

Acaba Coffee

I have been depressed for quite some time. In the evenings, I just get very sad and morose and get very down and cry. That is the terrible part about being depressed – you just have no reason at all to be depressed and you just are. Nothing shifts it, you don’t care about things and it is not good for those around you. So Fhon yesterday got me to get up early and she forced me into...

Three Years Ago

Three years ago I wrote this on my other blog. I was a mess at the time and I had just only met Fhon who was known back then as Mrs. Cake Girl. The difference of my life now is great but I am now in the middle of a depressive episode and now heavily medicated but in a better frame of mind. Just proves things can change over time. THREE YEARS AGO For the past 30 years, I have been taking...

The Art of Chiang Mai Blogging

So today Fhon and I went for a great ride around the back rice fields of Doi Saket and got lost; all the small villages were just fantastic, and it was so fun to ride on the PCX. I want now to take my friends via this loop that we have found and round it off by having lunch at Perfect Pizza. I will do an in-depth review of Perfect Pizza shortly as I regard this as one of my favorite places to go...

SangSan Coffee Shop

As you see by their Napkin, SangSan Coffee seems to take their coffee seriously. For a coffee shop that is based on the 1006 going to Bo Sang, it is off the beaten track but has a large local following it. SangSan Coffee I saw advertised on Food Panda, so they are doing local deliveries of there brew, so I wanted to see what it was all about. Here is a list of there coffee. They use a commercial...

Kookkai Coffee Shop

I am always looking out for somewhere cool to hang out in the hot afternoons in San Kamphaeng. Many of the small local shops do not have air conditioning and sometimes I am not looking to drink just coffee. Thailand has a base of different drinks from iced lemon drinks to Thai Teas that you can get on ice. The coffee from Kookkai Coffee Shop (Facebook Page) is okay but I have found that the Cha...
