our yesterdays


Last night I went to a funeral. Seems I go to one every couple of months now. Looks like the older you get, just more people you know pass on. Yet, last night I listened to the Monks talk about life and they brought up an interesting point about ‘yesterday’. Seems ‘yesterday’ play a big part in our life as we cannot erase what we have done previously so it is important to...

Village life


When I first came to Thailand, I did not think I would become an expat. I came to Thailand ten years ago for a short three month holiday and I just planned on going back to the Gold Coast to just get on with my life. What I have found difficult in living an expat life may be different for a lot of people. Living an expat life in a small village is not a easy thing to do and I will explain why. As...

In fact, during this period, I know several...

You see, we have a lot of faults and many of them are just our illness making us sick. The general...

I thought after 10 years here, I would be able to say Mai Bpen Rai (It does not matter in Thai) and just be able to kick back and enjoy things. This weekend Fhon and I went to a...

Welcome to San Kampaeng!


I would first like to welcome everyone to my new page. I have designed the page to be very simple so it is more text-based in content so I can write with areas for images and video if I wish. Now, what is this blog going to be about? Blogs can be pretty boring as time goes on and I found out last time I did a blog, sometimes they can grow big. Mine last time got out of control for me mentally as...
