Why I Write
I started blogging years ago as a way to seek inner escapade and arrange my hyperactive thoughts. Slowly, the habit became a convenient way to showcase my writing portfolio. Rather than sending anyone my sample copies, I pointed them to this blog here where they can peruse whatever a writing style they are looking for. Clicking through these entries proved to be much more relevant than waiting for the mailed copies of my published stories and books.
Then gradually this off-work writing became a sticky routine. From a mere happy diversion from work, I gained readers, subscribers and followers. I even got featured in the press. And I am always grateful for that. After several years, I have little by little adjusted the styles, the formats and catered the information so that this website can become an information point for those interested in Thai food (and others) and travelling in Thailand (and others). Our top menu categories are the place where you can find all our stories.
Please note, I do not accept unpaid writing, speaking, consulting, or reviewing. If you would like to commission me, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
