It was only 10.30 am but who cared? I ordered my English breakfast and a pint of Guinness - the ‘black stuff.’ They were the only things I was going to miss in my new life in Asia. Sure, I had family in England and I would miss some of them some of the time. But, owing to my acrimonious divorce the kids had shunned me. It hurt. My way of dealing with the hurt was to ignore it. It was packed away deep in my mind. There was no turning back and no time for regrets. Read more…

The rest of the remaining month soon passed. Why do happy times seem fleeting? Yet, bad times seem to linger. I had to make plans to leave the villa in Kanchanaburi. Noi and I both knew the time was fast approaching for me to fly back to England. She understood the reasons why I had to leave. I assured her I would return as quickly as possible. Certainly, once I had attended to outstanding business back there. Read more…

It was sunset as I drove through the congested toll roads of Bangkok in the rented Hilux. The setting red sun shimmered and reflected on the plate glass of the high rise downtown buildings. It was going to take several hours to reach Noi’s home town of Kampheang Phet. I had the foresight to bring my GPS with me from England so I was confident that I would not get lost. Progress was slow on the toll roads, ironically called expressways, partly owing to the time of day as it was rush hour. Partly, owing to toll booths only being about two miles apart. I would stop at one and pay. In no time at all, I was forced to stop and pay at the next booth! And, the one after that! Read more…

The remainder of the day took in all the sights of the southern end of Phuket island. Che drove us to the Big Buddha, Wat Chalong and Rawai Beach. It was a pleasant and memorable day out. The only drawback was that it was difficult to talk to Noi one on one when surrounded by her friends and the kids. I guess this was a part of Asian dating culture. She appeared to be happy so that made me happy too. Read more…

I stood outside the Pattaya bar that for thirteen lucky, money making years had been called “Defeat Al Qaeda!” (Lonely guys on both sides welcome!)  The Rajah was watching sadly as the workmen carefully separated, then took down, from over the large front entrance doors, the section of neon which spelled out “Al Qaeda” in curving glass tubes.

A short time ago I wrote a thread called ‘Serious Question’ and the comments have been fantastic – a real ‘learning-curve’ as far as I am concerned. What you are about to read was originally going to be a reply to the comments on that particular thread, but I decided to write it as a blog instead simply because I want to learn more about your own opinions.

In my earlier days I used to be one third of the comedy team known throughout Southeast Asia as “Two Chumps and a Chimp.”  I played the con artist, Mr. Velly Clever. My fellow Chump was a befuddled Hippie, recruited out of the smoke dens of Kathmandu. He played, (with varying degrees of coherence and success), himself. Our third member, the Chimp, was an African chimpanzee who had retired to Asia after reading my book. Read more…

President Obama called me into the Oval Office a week ago. “Ken, outrages are an outrage that must not stand! Outrageous! We must draw a line in the sand”. So he went to the sandbox and did so. Kind of a Zen thing I guess. First there is a crisis, then there is no crisis, then there is. Read more…

I entered the racetrack bar. Outside the picture window, the horses were approaching the starting gate for race number 5. Johnny ‘Sideways’ Jones leaned towards me, nearly spilling his drink… Read more…
