Providing CLM members with blogs is not solely about entertainment. It's about sharing experiences and giving advice to others. Whether or not a member chooses to take that advice is another matter. A couple of years ago I traveled to Thailand with a lady that I met on CLM. Although things didn't work out for us, I have absolutely no regrets in doing so. The decision to write about it here for all-and-sundry to read (many ladies included), was perhaps not the wisest decision I have ever made. Being a 'philandering playboy' may have once been an aspiration, but it's not the 'real' me. Read more…

Bangkok!  It’s only right that the greatest city in the world be cheap, heartless, and drowning.  Also sleazy, degenerate, edible, and beautiful; like the scales of a wet fish in the sun are beautiful... Read more…

We arrived at Krabi airport in relatively high spirits. Although our holiday was over we had both had a fabulous time. We knew that we were in for a rough night because our 3 hour 30 minute flight was due to land in Guangzhou around 1.30 am and our flight to Amy's home town was due to take off at 07.10. Read more…

Taking the early morning 3 and a half hour flight from Guangzhou to Krabi meant that the whole plane was sleeping and no food was served. We eventually arrived at our hotel at 6 am but couldn't check in till 8 so a couple more hours nap was grabbed in the hotel foyer. This was it..... we had arrived!!!!! 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…

Three or four girls sit disinterestedly on a couple of wooden benches, lazily calling out "massage" in a half-hearted manner to passerbys on Lahkroi Street, only it is more like "Maaay Saahge!" One can understand their reluctance to put much effort into this activity. They are competing with literally dozens of similar places within a few block radius for at most a handful of potential customers. Their success rate has got to be, what, like one in a couple of hundred, or more like one in a couple thousand. But still, business being business, and their business being massage, one must persist. Although it is well before noon the day is hot and you are drenched. Thankfully, the clouds provide some relief, but it may only be temporary; the forecast is for sunshine. Read more…

There is scene in the Chinese smash hit movie Lost in Thailand, about a business trip to Chiang Mai gone awry, where the main character has arrived at the Bangkok airport. Wishing to get to his intended destination as quickly as possible, he jumps into a cab and frantically urges the driver to beep his horn to get the car front to move. The cab driver tells him to relax. He is in Thailand. There is no beeping in Thailand. They will get there when they get there. 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…

“Make me paranoid”, said Alice to the White Rabbit. The Rabbit grinned, twitched its ears, and pulled a pocket watch out of its waistcoat. “I’m late!” it cried. Alice shrugged. “Internet online banking security in Asia”, the White Rabbit said. Alice fainted. Read more…

Ah, no sound as melodious or pleasing as the lower economic classes licking ones’ boots… Light your custom fireplaces with a couple of hundred dollar bills, won’t you, dear fellow billionaires, and listen to how to deal with the servants in tropical Asia… Read more…

Cold? Wet? Overworked? Underpaid, under loved, and under appreciated? Is that what’s troubling you, Bunkie? Maybe, oh ha ha ha, maybe, ha ha, there’s been some terrible misunderstanding and your government and economic system isn’t trying to get the last ounce of work and money out of you before melting your economic remains down for fat, like they used to do on whaling ships.

I went to Phuket Island with a big team of insurance company on the 2nd, July. There was a non-stop flight to Phuket from Wu Han. Just 4 hours flight, we arrived there. Although it was rainy season, but this was easy for all of us whom coming from "four ovens", Wu Han. We did avoid interruptions of strong ultraviolet. We enjoyed our time in raining, bathing cool sea breeze on lovers beach, visited so many beautiful places on the Island... Read more…

Let’s talk about the recent American Secret Service Columbian Prostitute scandal! Yeah, it has nothing to do with international internet dating, or finding the girl of your dreams in Asia, but still it’s very relevant. Read more…

I seem to have struck a nerve with my little story of the traveler who left his passport behind. Well, a lot of things can go wrong, when you travel in Asia, or anywhere else for that matter. I don’t mean losing your little Moleskine journal in which you wrote lonely, self pitying essays about how you lost …oh; wait a minute that was me. Read more…

Of course, “Thailand” doesn’t actually exist. It’s just a word and a concept, after all. A cobra has no idea it is crossing from Cambodia into Thailand. Huh… wait a second... it probably has no idea, later on… that it is crossing from Thailand back into Cambodia! Read more…
