Success, yet hardship – a Lisu story

Sawadee Khrap

Several years ago in Chiang Mai I met and employed as my house cleaner  “Ton”.  Actually his name is Asue Saeyang, he is Lisu, from Burma.   During the time he spent with me, he showed an interest in movie making and I sold him my Panasonic and stated teaching him about Sony Vegas and making videos.

After working for me for a couple of months, he met Ana (from UK)and they had a child,  “Lillie”.  They lived in Chiang Mai while he tried to get his Burmese papers in order to get his passport so they could get married.  That was in 2010.  Now in 2013 – Ana has gone to UK with Lillie and Asue will return to Burma again to try and get the passport settled and then rejoin his family in the UK. 

I hope you’ll join your prayers with mine that they will get this mess settled and have their family together soon.  

But to the success story – Asue is self taught, with a little help from CaptureAna and myself, he has mastered the art of movie making –

production, filming,  editing and publication. and has now published a full length 80 min.  movie.

Amazing !

   Although it is narrated in the Lisu language and has no subtitles it will still hit a nerve no matter what nationality you are, the Lisu story of the prodigal son.  Check it out

Congratulations Asue and continued success in your movie career –

Birding at Bang Pra–Chonburi

Sawadee Khrap

Tai and his American friend Jim visited last week and we went to the Bang Pra No-Hunting Area in Chonburi_MG_3539BangPhraNoHuntingBangPhraBirding_MG_3699Jim is an avid “birder” and this was my chance to check it out too.   The last photo is Jim walking away and Tai in the beached boat – This is the first time I have ever gone “birding” and the place is amazing – Jim, with his binoculars, said he counted over 35 species the day we went and when he and Tai went back the following day, they saw over 50 species and one flock of over 500 birds.  The place is rated as the best birding in Thailand.

 *******SLIDESHOW*******

Then we went to see the Khao Kheow Open Zoo just around the corner from the reservoir._MG_3571_MG_3639_MG_3604_MG_3669   This place is amazing too – complete drive the car around zoo with a great aviary and a huge collection of birds -  The place was packed with visiting students and the above 2 boys from Nong Kai posed for a snap.

******* SLIDESHOW *******

Had a great time and experienced something new – I do intend to visit again and get some better photos – this time I was more intent on looking than shooting, although I don’t see myself as a “birder” – {way too damn hot for me to set in a blind and wait for that perfect shot} – I wouldn’t hesitate to go on another trip.

So if you enjoy birding and are visiting Thailand be sure and visit this place –

Trouble in Paradise

Sawadee Khrap

As always, with all Go-Go houses in Thailand, you have to be careful about under-age girls/boys working there.  CaptureMost all of the establishments make sure all employees are of age – but some still try to get around the law. 

I just posted about Sunee Plaza and had a photo from the front of the “Mic-My” – what do you know – It’s in the Pattaya Daily News.   

Busted      Devil    Steaming mad   Thumbs down

So I just want to point out that anytime or anywhere you go and are waited on by any young person, make sure,  if you are planning to get to know them better,  that you closely check their ID and age.  Don’t offer dinner if you don’t know how old they are. 

The dancers are great – shows are entertaining – drinks are refreshing – the boys/girls are beautiful and there to serve you  – but be careful if your planning anything else.  Don’t end up spending your vacation in jail.

C….Boys LIVE Sunee Plaza

Sawadee Khrap

_MG_3457Went down to visit and grab some photos of Dave’s new C…Boys LIVE Bar in Sunee Plaza.   In addition to our friend “Nut”, standing right in white shirt with logo – there are other cute boys to greet you at the door.  Mod, F, Aon, You and Pom, get to work about 8:30 each evening  – Stop by, have a drink and say hello._MG_3453

Of course the place is really bright for the photos, but usually it’s much darker and more relaxing.  After this, I sauntered through Sunee to see what was happening – it was 8:30 and nothing started yet – just setting up, but the lights were on and the customers and boys were just starting to arrive.

You can see from the first photo – the old “Tom Yum”  has changed it’s name to “Cocktail Boys Club”,

I’ll have to stay up later and go down and get some shots when it’s busy.   But that’s way past my bedtime – Devil
