Chiang Mai will be visited in 2013!

Howdy everyone, it has been a while! Well, I got the vacation time approved, and I’ll be spending some quality time in Thailand.   Due to a huge software upgrade at work that I need to be involved with, I will only get 3 weeks of vacation instead of my usual 4 weeks.  Oh, well…. My [...]

So as I mentioned, I did some SCUBA training while I was in Pattaya. Here is a video about it. Thanks for watching!

My eyeware problem is solved… Thanks to “Hello Kitty”!

On a lighter note, “Hello Kitty” duct-tape fixes eyeglasses nicely…

Witnessed a brutal beating today… just horrible.

I had just come out of my hotel, when this Thai guy on a motor bike comes almost at full speed down the street. Nearly hitting me and several other people who were walking down the street. If you are familiar with Pattaya, you know that running a motor bike at full speed down ANY [...]
