THe Dolphin mobile hanging outside my flat, was taking random snaps while waiting to leave for Khao Sok. Sometimes I like this one, other times I think it's ugly. Go figure.
Meet Crivvens (formerly known as Alistair), the gorgeous Siamese kitten at Nung House in Khao Sok. He's a whizz at Scrabble...
Usually my camera sucks at close-ups, especially in low light, so I was pleasantly surprised by how well this came out. Chillin' with the lizards deep in the jungle of Khao Sok.
For some reason I only took 3 photos this day. This one wins cause Em is lovely
28/07/10 - Sports week at Suratpittaya. I loved the colours around the school, so much more fun than sports days back home.
29/07/10 - My young class at The Language. How can you not smile when teaching a class like this?
30/07/2010 - Joel indulging in a spot of Wii archery at Em and Sunny's leaving party
31/07/2010 - Wall hanging at Bangkok Cafe in Surat
That’s all for this week. I realise that this is kind of a cheating way to update the blog so I’m brewing a few rants which should make an appearance over the next week. Topics to include:
- Why I hate driving in this country.
- Myths about Thailand, Thai culture and Thai people.
- The prevalence of fucking hippies with rotting brains you’ll encounter while traveling in this part of the world and the ‘knowledge’ the feel compelled to share with you.
Until then, peace out

So Em and I were in Coolin’ Out last night to check out Mitch “Unleash The Fury” Burbick’s photography exhibition and we got talking to the new teacher, Brian. He mentioned that he’s been taking part in a kinda cool venture whereby one commits to taking at least one photo per day for 365 days and posting them online. From what I gathered it’s supposed to be a photo that encapsulates your day, although I get that impression that you can get away with a quick self-portrait lying in bed if it gets late and you realise you’ve forgotten to take one.
Well this is obviously right up Em’s alley and she’s cunningly cajoled me into taking part as well. With the timing it should mean a series of photos depicting life in Thailand, Scotland, Canada, America, Korea and all points in between.
We have sporadic access to the internet here and often disappear to beaches, jungles and the like so I’ll not be posting daily. Instead I’m going to post one today to get the ball rolling and then do weekly installments, hopefully seven photos every week. Here we go, the first pic as a tribute to the lass who kicked it off…
Putzing about in Cafe-ine on a rainy day in Surat
Well that’s that. Anyone taking bets on how long I keep it up? And by the way, I think a certain Lindsay Mathers should try this too seeing as she came into ownership/custodianship of a rather nifty camera not too long ago…
