PETER JAGGS
AUTOR-EDITOR

Resumen del eBook

Peter Jaggs has the unerring ability of being able to blunder into a good story wherever he travels in Asia.Whether perusing the bars and brothels of Pattaya and Angeles City, meeting up with an archaic spirit doctor in the wilds of the Isaan countryside, losing his way in the war-time tunnels of Cu-Chi in Vietnam, becoming embroiled in a punch-up with the local tough-guy in a Philippine backstreet or encountering an ethereal ghost on a deserted, moonlit beach in Thailand, he tells the tale with his own peculiar stamp of originality, humor and accuracy.The twenty true short stories in this - the authors eighth book - are as colorful, diverse and sometimes as confusing as the continent of Asia itself. Many will make you laugh, others may make you want to cry and one or two will probably appall you.Whatever your reaction may be to some of the memories of a man who has spent almost three decades making the most of what Asia has to offer, Thailand Old Hand makes for a rattling good suitcase read and is a book you will find hard to put down.***The author is an Old Thailand Hand; its apparent he has been around long enough to become insightful Bangkok PostJaggs has become like a master brewer, skillfully distilling a wealth of living experiences into some very funny moments Pattaya Trader ...

FEAR AND LOATHING IN PATTAYA (EBOOK)
MARK JONES

Resumen del eBook

Recent reports in a number of western newspapers Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Canada - suggest that Thailand is one of the most dangerous countries in the world, for the aforementioned countries nationals, to either be living in or visiting.Based on recent statistics the newspapers reported that, in terms of serious injury or death, their citizens are more at risk in Thailand than almost anywhere else in the world apart from declared war zones. To add balance to the argument the reports also clearly stated that the majority of the injuries, and fatalities were the result of misadventure or road accidents. In instances where murder or serious assault was involved the Thai authorities were praised for their professionalism in apprehending the perpetrators. All too often though, it is found that the perpetrators were either a jealous business competitor trying to eliminate the competition, or a greedy wife or girlfriend hoping to cash in on the death of her husband or boyfriend. These deeper level facts are something that is often not made clear in the report of the death or serious assault. It may be touched upon but we are often left to draw our own conclusions regarding the machinations behind the event.For many expats living in Thailand, these types of occurrences are an all too familiar theme with greed, more often than not, being the primary motivator. Sadly it is also quietly acknowledged that many of the victims foreign husbands, boyfriends, or business competitors put themselves in a position to be a victim in the first instance. That they werent street smart or savvy enough and often, through their own actions or naivety, help create the circumstances leading to their injury or demise. Even though the local English language newspapers do a reasonable job reporting the eventual apprehension of the greedy wife, girlfriend, or jealous business competitor, nothing much is ever mentioned of the behind the scenes story. The rivalries, jealousies, motivations and emotions that are the fabric of a human tragedy go unreported.This book seeks to rectify that and it also seeks to show balance; that as much as the blame can be pointed at the motivations of a jealous business competitor, greedy wife, or girlfriend, it can also be apportioned to the poor life decisions made by the victim. For many of us who continue to live in Thailand, or those who are considering moving here, there is a lesson in that. That one must take responsibility for ones own actions at all times and never put yourself in a position to be a victim. As a foreigner in Thailand you are, in most instances, on your own. You are, whether you like it or not, very much the director of your own destiny. ... Leer resumen completo

YOU CANT HIDE AN ELEPHANT IN AN OMELET (EBOOK)
BRANDON FOLLETT; AMY JOHNSON

Resumen del eBook

Brandon and Amy travel Southeast Asia with the idea that this beautiful region of the world with its unique geography and culture will not be experienced with a cocktail in hand, felt through a Thai massage parlor, or watched from a pool side. Tasted by way of S. E. Asia omelets and interpreted by an American palate, they o ffer a fresh look at American culture and S. E. Asia travel.A few excerpts:The surprise omelet bonus at Simbas is the really friendly cat. Recently, I have been trying to pet more cats and dogs while eating omelets. This is in preparation for my upcoming trip to Laos. I figure if I can be comfortable with a pet beside my omelet, then the next step of a pet inside my omelet will be easy to swallow. Today my omelet experience is going smoothly, and I feel really comfortable about going to Laos to try my first dog or cat omelet.Until I ate in the city of Chieng Kong, I was a racial food profiler. Several times I passed up Mexican, Italian, and Indian food in Thailand because the cooks didnt have the right skin color. At the Riverside BambooRestaurant, I learned the hands that make a delicious quesadilla do not have to be Mexican.Im eating a Cambodian-style fried egg omelet with steamed rice and vegetables on the side when I hear an oink oink.Eventually, the pleasure found in the omelet is killed by death, amputees, whores, and the reality that lurks behind book titles such as Off the Rails in Phnom Penh: Into the Dark Heart of Guns, Girls, and Ganja. I now see the omelet as nothing more than a way to survive. I just need some energy to get out of this city. ... Leer resumen completo
