Learning Thai with Cee

(Oct 13, 2019) Learning Thai from a white guy? Yes, and it couldn't be better. Cee knows and speaks Thai by heart with even a local accent.

Visa-Run to Tachileik, Myanmar

(Sep 28, 2019) It's that recurring episode again - the visa-run. Where to go? What if I get denied entry? Worse, what if I'm blacklisted? My last visa-run to Hanoi proved difficult and there was no reprieve on the horizon as far as Thai Immigration was concerned.....more »»

The 9 Jhanas of Buddha

(Aug 22, 2019) The story has it that in Buddha's quest for enlightenment, he reached up to the 9th Jhana but still came short of liberation. This word Jhana kept coming up in my readings. Curious, I devoted quality reading time to learn more about Jhana.....more »»

(Aug 1, 2019) After a disruptive 5-day visa run to Hanoi, I'm glad to be back again at Nawa Saraan Hotel in my beloved Chiang Mai.
