Much effort has
gone into putting this site together and the site has flourished
very due to the kind contributions of readers. If you
enjoy reading the stories on this site and would like to give
something back, there are a number of ways you can do it.

The readers' submissions section of the site has grown to become
the biggest single collection of farangs' experiences on
Thailand hosted at any one site. There are in excess of
4,000 stories and 2-3 are added each day. This section of
the site depends very much on readers sending in stories.
If you have any experiences at all, it would be GREAT if you
could send them in.
All you have to do is type up the story which should be 800
words or more, and send it to me either in the body of an email
or as a Microsoft Word file attachment. Let me know a
title for the story, a pen name and whether you would like your
email address added to it and we'll do the rest.
This is a difficult one as I have to admit that I do not use all
news sent in. If you see something newsworthy, interesting
or just plain weird, let me know. The weekly column requires me to get out and
about each week, to investigate what is going on around town,
and to write about it. If you are a bar owner, or a
business owner, I would love to know what is happening at your
establishment. It is news for the column AND it is free
advertising for you too!
Also, if there are any Thailand related articles in newspapers
or other periodicals or online sites, send me a link.

very reasonable. The ONLY way to advertise on this site is
to contact me directly as I prefer not to use syndicated

No! This is something I do not accept.
People have offered to put some cash in my hands but frankly, it
is not something I am comfortable with. The site was not
set up as a money spinner, but as a means to offer worthwhile
information about living in Thailand. I won't accept cash
per se, but if we bump into each other out and about and you
would like to buy me a drink, I will be happy to accept it.

times I think the Mrs. verges on an alcoholic. She has a
penchant for red wine - and that can be an expensive habit in
Thailand for the cost of wine here is very expensive. If
you are coming from the West and have space for a bottle of red
wine, the Mrs. would be grateful.
Finally, let me
thank all readers for your support of the site! It is you
guys who have helped make it what it is!
