Vlog 160 – Back to the Motor Expo to buy a Honda Civic

So after a week of family discussions, we head back to the Motor Expo and make application for Chanya’s new Honda Civic. Of course, I still have plans to get a new road bike but for now, we’ll just focus our plans on the new car. I am surprised at how simple the process is […]

Vlog 159 – Fathers Day dinner with family

The 5th of December was King Rama the 9th birthday and also celebrated as Fathers day in Thailand. I’m not at all sure whether it will stay as fathers day going forward, but nothing has changed this year. Of course, the father loves his seafood, so tonight we head back to the Pae Poh Khew […]

Vlog 158 – More problems with my computer system

One of the most frustrating problems I have here in Thailand is sorting out issues when things break or simply don’t work properly. We go back to IT City and see if we can sort out the ongoing reliability of my gaming system. Again, I hit the same warranty snag where the vendor doesn’t honour […]

Vlog 157 – Thailand Motor Expo 2017 – Part 2

Welcome back to Part 2 of our Thailand Motor Expo where we’re still having a ball. We’ll have to do some juggling of my finances to get Chanya’s Honda Civic, but now I need to work out how to get my Chopper Anyway, we continue to navigate our way through the Expo and check out […]

Vlog 156 – Thailand Motor Expo 2017 – Part 1

Well, it’s that time of the year to head across to the Thailand Motor Expo at the Impact Arena. Chanya wants a new car! As I was mentioning in earlier blogs, I really find it difficult to understand how the average Thai family can afford one of these new cars. Chanya has had her heart […]

Vlog 155 – Our Website, random thoughts and YouTube

Today we’re just popping down to the local Big-C again to pick up a couple of things so I thought about giving everyone an update on our website, shared some thoughts on early retirement and talked about the whole YouTube game and their constant changes which frustrate everyone producing videos for that platform. One of […]

Vlog 154 – Chanya’s cousin graduates university

We take a short drive to Chanya’s uncle’s house where we have a family lunch and celebrate her cousin’s graduation. One of the things I really find a lot of joy in is seeing the closeness of family here in Thailand. This is something I believe has been lost in the modern western culture where […]

Vlog 153 – Checking out the second hand car dealers

With the Motor Expo starting at the end of this week, I thought it would be a great idea to go and check out the local used car dealerships and see how the prices stack up. For me, I still haven’t worked out how the new and used car market actually works in Thailand. Considering […]

Vlog 152 – 5 things you need to change to enjoy living in Thailand

I had a few questions popped up recently on the channel comments and as they were all related, I thought I’d make a video about it. This is the 5 things I’ve encountered with foreigners coming to Thailand and how things are much different to what they expect. I’m sure I could think of a […]

Vlog 151 – I get no support for my fitness program

Well, it’s quite clear that I’ll be getting no encouragement from Chanya while I pursue my fitness regime. Not to worry, I have my subscribers to keep me motivated. Ok, let’s be crystal clear on this, she does like the fact that I’m going to the Gym to improve my fitness, but if you’ve been […]

Vlog 150 – It’s time to get fit. 6 pack coming soon!

I’ve made a decision to get back to the Gym and get fit again. I’ve been on holiday for over a year now and it’s now time to get back in shape. Of course, I’m only using an analogy when I say I’ve been on holiday because if you have been following our adventures over […]

Vlog 149 – Living Thai style in our Moo Barn

We’ve had many people ask us to show them around our village here on the western side of Bangkok. Today we take a ride around and show you life as a Thai living in a modern Thai village. Ove the last 8 years, we’ve lived in 3 of these villages, or Moo Barns as they […]

Vlog 148 – Bargain hunting at the market, and it rains!

Today we head back to Sanam Luang Song weekend market to do some bargain hunting. We found some great curtains for our townhouse and I found a Meatloaf teeshirt which was a rare find in Thailand. In my opinion, this would be the largest weekend market west of Bangkok and relatively easy to get to […]

Vlog 147 – Weekly challenges and Live Streaming

As you know, I did my first live stream last week and we had a few technical challenges. The feedback we received was positive and constructive so I’ll be tweaking the system and get something happening regularly. Let me know if you’d like to be involved and we’ll see what we can do. Anyway, we’re […]

Vlog 146 – Retirement? Why Choose Thailand?

Today I take some time to give our audience a bit of a backstory on why I chose Thailand as the destination for Retirement. Yes, it is a long one, but there was a bit of stuff to cover. I felt the best way to look at everything was to take a quick look at […]

Vlog 145 – Loi Krathong at Wat Rai Khing

I must say, there are 2 times each year when Thailand becomes a really festive place. The first is a Songkran and the second is Loi Krathong. Don’t misunderstand me, it is in now was second place to Songkran as it is probably the best time of the year because the temperatures start to cool […]

Vlog 144 – Meeting Mark from Korat

Today is Loi Krathong and we head into Bangkok to meet up with one of our channel patrons Mark. We had a great chat and a great lunch and it was good to see him in person rather than over webcam. You may notice over the last few video that I am plugging the Meetup […]

Vlog 143 – What’s coming up in Bangkok

So now that the official mourning period is over. Thailand will start getting back to normal…… well….. normal for Thailand anyway. Anyway, just a video with a few thoughts of the top of my head. Some thoughts about the channel and what’s coming up in our weekly video series. It can be a bit of […]
