I've been living in Pattaya as a retiree since late October, 2011. I've really enjoyed myself and seven years seem to have gone by in a flash. I've had very few bad moments in the past 2,555 days and I look forward to at least another seven years here.
I feel that too much that's written about Thailand in general and Pattaya in particular in blogs and social media is unduly negative. I want to emphasize the positive aspects while not ignoring the downside. A more appropriate title would be "Glass Three-Quarters Full," but that's not very catchy. Like Billy Pilgrim in Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five, I will have become "unstuck in time." I may write about the past, present or future; sometimes about today, sometimes 20 or more years ago and yet other times about what the future may hold. It will be an eclectic blog covering any subject I feel may be of interest to others. I'll update it as often as I can, but I doubt it will be on a daily basis.
I'll begin by wishing everyone
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I look forward to taking full advantage of it in the various parties all over Pattaya tomorrow night. I plan to kick things off with both an earlier start and early climax at Sexy in the City on Soi 6. AJ (aka Xylanic) hosts one of the best Halloween parties in town. And I'm optimistic that the horde of zombies I encounter later on Walking Street will be friendly, at least no worse than usual.
My first substantial post in this blog will cover a topic that at least some of us have to deal with: losing weight in Pattaya.
Over and out until the next installment.
