Blog Hacked–corrected now–new digs in Chiang Mai

Sawadee Khrap

Sorry to have been down for so long – Blog was hacked.  Not sure who did it  – one intruder was from China and a couple from the US, but now it’s been fixed for a while.  At first I thought it was just a database problem but in further investigation found several corrupted/hacked files and several un-authorized logins.  I reset and updated the security software and hope this will stop future problems. 

Here are some shots of my new condo  in Chiang Mai –  Big kitchen area, great living room space and bedroom large enough to have a King size bed and my new exercise Elliptical machine.  These show everything except I didn’t have the fish tank separation stand for the living room done at the time of the photos.  Now with the elliptical I don’t have to go for morning walks – great for the rainy season and when the burning haze starts next May.  Now to get a new car.


There is a lot more noise than my old place in Pattaya, but I will try to get used to it – I have a clause in my lease that I can move if it gets too bad – I’m hoping that it won’t be the case. What is nice is that I am within walking distance of the Kad Saun Kaew and Maya Shopping Centers and centrally located for everything else making it easy to catch a songtaw to go anywhere in the city..  The condo is 73 km2 so lots of space to set up another photo studio for model shots – just need to build the lighting boxes so I can roll them out of the way when not needed – next project.

Going to start taking new photos of the area and retrace some old standard sites – but still settling in and slow to get a lot done – maybe that’s just old age setting in too.
