Covid 19: Lion - Buffalo Analogy Nong Khai, Thailand

Covid 19: Lion - Buffalo Analogy

(Apr 13, 2020) A guy I met in Dumaguete many years back, recently posted on Facebook about Covid 19. It's provocative and could come across as insensitive given the casualties and the frantic efforts to curb the pandemic. But it resonated with me. Covid 19 is widely viewed as the 'glass being half empty'. However, given fresh perspective, it can also be viewed as 'half full'.....more »»

Covid 19 and the Conspiracies

(Mar - Apr, 2020) The word 'conspiracy theory' has been rendered taboo by mainstream media.

Covid 19 and Pranayama

(Mar 20, 2020) The world is gripped by its balls with Covid 19. Social media, mainstream media, water cooler talk...it's all about the Covid 19 pandemic that is sweeping the planet by storm. Airports, schools, offices, public events are on global lock-down to stem the virus from spreading. Media fuels the panic by showing clips of people physically slugging each other over toilet paper in a grocery run. Alcohol, face masks and hand sanitizer are hoarded for black market sale. The panic is viral and frenzied. Not to sound insensitive or arrogant, but the viral pandemic doesn't worry me. I have one word to say: PRANAYAMA.....more »»

Giant Mekong Catfish at the Nong Khai Aquarium

(Mar 19, 2020) When I visited Chiang Khong in May 2016, I came upon its Catfish Museum. But the only Giant Mekong Cat Fish I saw was a stuffed animal. But it was huge, as long as my outreached arms. Here in Nong Khai, I heard they have an aquarium where you actually see a live one!....more »»

Drawn to Nong Khai, Thailand Nong Khai, Thailand

Drawn to Nong Khai, Thailand

(Mar 12, 2020) My abrupt departure from Vientiane left me a few options on the next destination. Udon Thani was appealing. Bangkok was viable, if I could get barter lodging at Adventure Hostel. And of course, Chiang Mai always has its doors open. But this obscure border town, Nong Khai, was calling my attention. But lodging was prohibitive, starting at B220. Usually, I bypass these destinations. What exactly is in Nong Khai? I don't even know the first thing about it. I bit the bullet and took my chance.....more »»
