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...

Having to Trust


I have been sick for the last few days with terrible diarrhea and last night had to visit my doctor to get some help. If you are in San Kamphaeng and you need a doctor that can speak basic English, Renu Medical Center is the place to go. If you have a Thai partner, they can ring 053 392073 to get better directions. Over the years I have been going to see countless doctors, I have found it very...

My Thai Family Ways


Yesterday we took a break from home and went to a lake close to our house. We drove through very green ricefields that in about another three weeks, will be ready to harvest. When I first came out to our village, moving into a house with Fhons Mum, Dad and brother were not that easy for me. I had been alone for some time and the previous relationship I was in was for all the wrong reasons and I...

Diving Deep


Living in a small Village as I said has its problems. No one in my area can speak good English and my Thai is terrible. Learning Thai is very hard due to the tones and the script and if I could do anything again, I would wish to be able to learn Thai properly to make my life easier. I have been living in this village for three years now. We have a small Lana house, three dogs (Labrador, Beagle...

Grow Cafe


Grow Cafe is a coffee shop based in San Kamphaeng. I would have to say out of the many coffee shops, Grow most likely gives the best cup of coffee/tea/ice coffee/mocha in this area. The shop is only small but I find it quite cosy and the best part of all, during the hot part of the afternoon, it is great to go there for the cold air conditioning. Here is there Facebook page so you can go ahead...

sandwich gallery Thailand


Just recently opened, Sandwich Gallery Thailand has bought an array of sandwiches and Thai food to San Kamphaeng. As a farang (foreigner) looking always for some home foods, this has been a Godsend for a quick bite to eat. It has been a nice surprise not having to run into Chiang Mai to find a decent sandwich. Here is the Facebook Page for Sandwich Gallery Thailand so you can have a look and like...

Tonyon Cafe Chiang Mai


Tonyon Cafe Chiang Mai is a home-based eatery between Bosang and San Kamphaeng to get your dose of foreign food. The Cafe is located in a house in a quiet Soi away from the traffic and caters mostly foreign foods that are in this area, hard to find. Tanya is the Chef and Manager of this small cafe but being small does not mean that the food is not quality. This is Tonyon Cafe Chiang Mai Facebook...
