Bangkok Lives | Cindy Unbound

You’re heard enough
Of the blues and stuff
You’re pretty swell now
‘Cause you’re pretty tough
But I don’t have to tell you
How hard it can be to get by
You never bothered
About anyone else
You’re well educated
With no common sense
But love, that’s one thing
You really need to get by
All your troubles
Come from yourself
Nobody hurts you
They don’t care
Just as long as you show them
A really good time
All the things
You used to do
A trip to the movies
A drink or two
They don’t satisfy you
They don’t tell you anything new
You know I don’t talk much
Except to myself
‘Cause I’ve not much to say
And there’s nobody else
Who’s ready and willing
And able to know me, I guess
Listen to me
I’m not finished yet
There’s something to tell you
That I can’t forget
Just have a really good
There’s a girl
I used to know
Her face is her fortune
She’s got a heart of gold
She never goes out much
But boy, when she does
Then you know
She’s got no money
Well, maybe a dime
But she knows what she’s worth
And that’s reason why
She’s gonna make it
She’s got what it takes
You’ll appreciate that
She’s probably late
But I know
And you know
We all know
She’ll have a really good time

Bangkok Lives | Maggy

Bangkok Lives | Maggy

When I was a child I had an old Aunty Maggy who used to terrify me by holding my hand very tight when we crossed the road. I was terrified we would be run down because, as I said, Maggy was very old, slow and fat. The kind of aunty who is not one’s real aunty but a close family friend. She had far too much hair on her face but a heart of gold and she cared for me, I know that much is true. There the comparison ends . . . . but it is strange, an often makes me smile when Thai ladyboys choose the most old fashioned English names; Ann, Maggy, May, April, Janet, Joanne, Flora, Julie, Joy. Sure there are plenty of Candy’s and Sindy’s too but there is no disambuiguation with those names because we expect a whore, hooker or sexy girl to be named Candy. We don’t expect a cute girl to be called Maggy or Rose! Actually, they are all, everyone of them Elizas’!

Unbreakable Bangkok | How did I get here?

Unbreakable Bangkok | How did I get here?

Well, how did I get here? More to the point, how can you get here? This is not a perfect blueprint of how to move to Thailand but it’s what I did. Some insights into what you can do to prepare, managing finances, finding the right place to live and more . . .

Bangkok Lives  | Hana

Bangkok Lives | Hana

Hana has a pre-raphealite look and at times seems quite dark. The opposite is true and it would probably be difficult to find a gentler ladyboy in Thailand.

Bangkok Lives | Brand New

Bangkok Lives | Brand New

New looks like a child, or at least her face does. Once one's eyes move down her body it's a different story. She has a woman's figure, no, scratch that---she has a cartoon fantasy figuire or a shape like a hentai complimented by big colourful tattoos on her chest...

Bangkok Lives | Jessica

Bangkok Lives | Jessica

I have described other ladyboys in glowing terms in the past, I know, but wish I had reserved some vocabulary that would let you know how special Jess really is. Now, ok, she’s easy on the eye but nowadays I tend to rate people on their character and personality. Never has an interview from start to finish been easier than this one with jessica. She is genuinely such a sweet soul spending time with her is a real pleasure. It’s rare for me to enjoy anyone’s company these days being as curmudgeonly as I am!! If you want a girlfriend for real or someone to take on a trip-Jess is definitely your girl!

Bangkok Lives | Aim

Bangkok Lives | Aim

To say that Aim has an hourglass figure would be understating the obviously fruitful cargo she bears with her like a very welcome market trader. What a girl. She would certainly have been the inspiration for a few saucy postcards, if such whimsies had not been banned by the new world order. Aim is a bit shy of her assets but paradoxically also eminently able to inspire attention! She was only a fruitseller’s daughter but her melons were second to none!

Bangkok Lives | Kim

Bangkok Lives | Kim

Kim is an enigma; beautiful but impossible to analyse. Is she shy or distant? Haughty or just misunderstood? What do you think?

Unbreakable Bangkok | Is your Thai Girlfriend a Burden yet?

Unbreakable Bangkok | Is your Thai Girlfriend a Burden yet?

Rudyard Kipling wrote The White Man’s Burden in the mid 19th Century suggesting the west should do everything in it’s power to civilise the savage.
But Thailand was never colonised. Would government, healthcare and education be better if it had been?
What about your girlfriend? Would she be more self motivated, have a little initiative and understand the world at large better?

Bangkok Lives | Ploy Unbound

Bangkok Lives | Ploy Unbound

I wonder what lies at the innermost soul of Ploy and a few girls like her . . . . it’s not that she’s enigmatic or willfully distant at all. Like the Mona Lisa one is never sure what she is all about. There is much more to these girls than a desire for money but it takes a dose of time to find out. Ploy is perhaps the best traveling companion one could have. She is not shy but can be reserved, not brash but confident, not prudish but modest at the right times; she won’t come down to breakfast in a 5 star hotel with her tits hanging out. she’s a go-to kinda girl.

Bangkok Lives | Ohm

Bangkok Lives | Ohm

Ohm is disarming. It’s only up close one sees how lovely she is and quite how feminine her body is with zero surgery. A remarkably nice girl.

Bangkok Tales | Meltdown in Thailand

Bangkok Tales | Meltdown in Thailand

Why do so many foreigners or farangs go into a tailspin in Thailand. Why are there so many suicides and what leads to the legendary stories about alcoholism and other professional buffoonery in Bangkok? Teachers don’t have a great rep and its not surprising when many of them dress like scarecrows, smell like last night’s whisky and nasty street food and sometimes even arrive at work with vomit and feaces in their hair.

Bangkok Lives | When Love comes to Town

Bangkok Lives | When Love comes to Town

Even having zero intentions of falling in love . . . love still might get you. Especially when your senses are reeling and the heady culture of Thailand is having it’s way with your sensibilities. Ask me, I know all about Love creeping up on you. So what can you do to enjoy the ride and steer a little?

Bangkok Lives | Sammy

Bangkok Lives | Sammy

This girl is full of eastern promise, just like the add used to say. She is beautiful, intelligent and lovingly humble in her gentle way. The video is problematic. Apologies, the light was falling and so was I . . . .

Bangkok Lives | Probably

Bangkok Lives | Probably

These girls are best friends and are both from Laos like a lot of ladyboys and girls in Thailand. Both are smart and fun loving as you can see. They are great company and manage to be professional and still warm and “real” human beings. They know how to dress for various ocassions and are always stylish and beautiful.This is Ploy’s facebook-https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100011723514386.

Bangkok Lives | Mikey

Mikey works as a photographic model most of the time. Times are tough in Bangkok as another set of measures and a curfew are announced. Keep smiling!
