Manifesting: Epicurus' Pursuit lucid

Manifesting: Epicurus' Pursuit

(Jul 31, 2021) With my continuing Covid-19 visa extension in Thailand, my continuing stay at Nawa Saraan Hotel with all its amenities, I am able to host Pizza Nites with friends, do Slack Lining, chill on a hammock and even dip into an ice bath with friends. I realized I'm living the life of a Greek philosopher, Epicurus, who once remarked that being with friends is one of the requisites to happiness.....more »»

Ice Bath at Nawa Saraan Healing Space chill

Ice Bath at Nawa Saraan Healing Space

(Jul 25, 2021) There was a big and idle blue drum at the hotel, and Alan suggested I do my own ice bath with it. The idea fermented. I cleaned up the drum and ordered 2 sacks of ice. I was testing the system but the neighbors joined in and so did some friends from yoga. The scene resembled a party.....more »»

Pizza Nite + Slack Line + Hammock food Pizza

Pizza Nite + Slack Line + Hammock

(Jul 23, 2021) When Monika offered to give me a free Thai massage as part of her training, I could only say Thank You by way of Pizza Nite. When Nanthi wanted to go Slack Lining, I said bring your Pizza ingredients as well. Christine and I already planned on this tentatively. Yuki was a new acquaintance whose reserved Japanese demeanor was eye catching. The rest is Pizza Nite III.....more »»

Yin-Yoga & Hypnosis with Christine Thiel yoga

Yin-Yoga & Hypnosis with Christine Thiel

(Jul 20, 2021) Traditional yoga has been paired with many other activities ranging from the questionable (SUP Yoga), ridiculous (Beer Yoga), lofty (Aerial Yoga), intense (Hot Yoga), and bare (Naked Yoga). Now comes another one - Hypnosis Yoga. How does it measure up?....more »»

Pizza Nite with James and Nat food Pizza

Pizza Nite with James and Nat

(Jul 19, 2021) When friends were invited to Pizza Nite, they said it was 'complicated' bringing in everything they need to make a pizza. But two daring souls unflinchingly stepped-up to the plate. Let's see what pizza magic they have!....more »»

Hatha Yoga: Controlling the Switch yoga

Hatha Yoga: Controlling the Switch

(Jul 7, 2021) By its very name, Hatha Yoga is a duality of male/female, sun/moon, fight/restoration, sympathetic nervous system/para-sympathetic nervous system, etc. How can we leverage from this concept to regain control of our response to stress, tension and recovery? more »»

Movie Review: A Quiet Place Part II movies

Movie Review: A Quiet Place Part II

(Jul 5, 2021) This sequel gives a recap to the first movie, A Quiet Place, which makes the whole movie understandable if you haven't seen the first one. If I were to put this into a genre, I would coin it, a Shocker movie. It's not exactly horror, suspense, or thriller, but it makes you jump up for fast surprises coupled with thundering eardrum shattering soundtrack. Although formulaic, it was still a clever movie in the end.....more »»

Yoga Classes with Calum yoga

Yoga Classes with Calum

(Mar 27 - Jul 4, 2021) Calum didn't appreciate the competitive nature he felt in the yoga studios he's been to. Thus the one-on-one classes. I already forgot what we talked about in our initial meeting at the Tuesday Vegan Dinners, but I guess I talked about yoga and perhaps he liked what he heard.....more »»

Hike to Wat Pa Thammachat Waterfall mtn

Hike to Wat Pa Thammachat Waterfall

(Jul 2, 2021) It was still a 2km hike through the brushy forest to reach the waterfall. The trail was sketchy, sometimes disappearing. Finally, there it was - waterfall, plunge pool and even a rocky outcropping where you can sit as the water come down on you. It was a perfect meditation spot!....more »»

Continuing Friendships in Chiang Mai

(Jun 30, 2021) New faces, familiar faces, continuing friendships, building bridges, setting up boundaries, promising beginnings, dead ends, my shifting peoplescape in Chiang Mai. A continuing (monthly?) narrative of who and what matters...more »»

On the Brink of Hunger, the ENABLERS Come to Light

(Jun 21, 2021) The last time I was problematic about money was the entire 2018. This year, it has hung precariously low. This June, I came down to my last few meals in the fridge. Worried? NO! It got me excited. How will my benevolent universe save the day for me the way it has unwaveringly done so in the last 9 years I had been traveling? The suspense was killing me.....more »»

36-Hour Love Life sliceoflife

36-Hour Love Life

(Jun 11, 2021) It was a case of 2 friends who spent too much time with each other, liked each other a little more than they should, and ended up exploring possibilities. All it took was a few red flags in the first 36 hours to realize it wasn't viable. Like 2 intelligent adults, we both decided to cut our loses while we were still ahead of the game.....more »»

Biohackers Meetup in Chiang Mai fitness

Biohackers Meetup in Chiang Mai

(Jan 25, 2003) I've always been a biohacker before I even knew the word. I think biohacking is a state of thinking. You have this uncanny ability to connect the dots inside your head from diverse disciplines, with an intuitive hunch on the outcome. In more ways than one, the only way to find out if it works is to try it on your body - you become the guinea pig. When Jason organized a biohacker meetup, I just had to show up.....more »»
