In such a hurry we miss everything

Sawadee Khrap

Here’s a great article  you shouldn’t miss: (click to enlarge)


I know I must have missed many great and wonderful experiences as I ran through life in the Bay Area.  Thank God, now I can relax and smell the roses and here in Chiang Mai I find many, many roses.  We all need to slow down and see what our environment offers to us – San Francisco, Chiang Mai or wherever you are – beauty is everywhere – It’s really just the reflection of God’s Love in this world.  I hope you can slow down to enjoy it too –


King $ Queen Major

Sawadee Khrap

IMG_6048-GoldCard-webJust got back from a short trip to see my very close friend Kain (King of the Nursing Major) at Mae Fah Luang University in Chiang Rai and his lovely Queen, Mae, in the parade for Loy Krathong.  Lighting was very bad and I didn’t have the large flash so many of the shots were very dark, I am working on them and will post later. 

But here is the shot I have finished so far.  I will get them ready for Kain first and then post a slideshow on the blog. By the way Kain’s Major group also won for making the best Krathon

Fang Lagoon Homestay Web Site down

Sawadee Khrap

I just talked to Khun May at Fang Lagoon Home Stay for Men and he told me his website is down and not sure when it will be up again, probably at a new IP address.  If anyone wished to make reservations or contact him they can use these listings.

Khun May   

Phone Number  +66  080 125 2509


He says sorry for the inconvenience and they are trying to get it up and running again soon – I will post a link here when it is active again.


UPDATE website up and running again Fang Lagoon Homestay for Men



Fang Lagoon revisited again

Sawadee Khrap

Well I was fairly close to Fang last week (actually in Chiang Dao) so I decided to stop by and meet the 2 new escorts working at the Home Stay.  Soi wasn’t there but I did meet one of the new boys – Num (One). Here are some shots:  First  Khun May (owner), Eio and Num.











Num took me to see the Fang Hot Springs and naturally we had to soak a little.  I have a lot of photos from a earlier trip several years ago I took and will post then later. – beautiful place.  But here we are, or rather here’s  Num – I’m not worth photographing – ha ha:









Back to Home Stay and some shots of the local area:
























Now you know I will not show any photos of myself when there are such good looking boys there like Eio and Num – too bad Soi, Kla and the other boys weren’t here too.  Sorry Emy, I will get your photo in next time (Emy is the chef and is a vital member of the team).

And also what a great surprise, Zach, from the US was just ending his 3 day visit and told me the blog helped him choose Home Stay for his vacation and thought it was fabulous and definitely plans on coming back again.  Nice – maybe I can meet you there too.


Can you help out ??

My friend Brian just sent me this request to post:

Due to the recent influx of refugees in Mae Sot and other areas in Thailand recently please collect any old or new clothes and bring them to SoupaSteak Restaurant. Condition is not important, nor is size.  Children and adults clothing shoes and blankets are all very welcome. If possible the items should be clean. Any other items you may think of may also be stored there but if the item is large please call Brian first before delivery on 

086 111 77 66

SoupaSteak is located opposite the Shell Gas Station just up from Central Kad Suan Kaew on Huay Kaew Road.

Sorry I overwrote the first Paul’s joke – here is is again

Little RALPHY returns from school and says he got an F in arithmetic.   ‘Why?’ asks the father?
‘The teacher asked ‘How much is 2×3,” I said ‘6’, replies RALPHY.   ‘But that’s right!’ says his dad.
‘Yeah, but then she asked me ‘How much is 3×2?”
‘What’s the fuckin’ difference?’ asks the father.
‘That’s what I said!’


Widdle Wabbit

Sawadee Khrap

My God, Here’s another good one from Paul’s “The Sunday Funnies”  Nov 7,2010

A precious little girl walks into a pet shop and asks,
in the sweetest little lisp, between two missing teeth, "Excuth me,
mithter, do you keep widdle wabbits?"
As the shopkeeper’s heart melts, he gets down on his knees so that
he’s  on her level and asks, "Do you want a widdle white wabbit,
or a thoft and fuwwy, bwack wabbit, or maybe one like that cute widdle
bwown wabbit over there?"   
She, in turn, blushes, rocks on her heels, puts her
hands on her knees, leans forward and says, in a tiny quiet voice,
"I don’t think my python weally gives a thit."


New Photoshop work

Sawadee Khrap

Here are some examples of my latest Photoshop work, I really love the new filters and templates available. 



























Now that the studio is fully functional I am starting to do more models.  Hope to be posting them soon – stay tuned.

And Brian wanted me to make a special project for a young man he photographed in his studio – I came up with this :
