This book is a about a state of mind, a state of mind that exists throughout the whole of the world.
A truly exceptional candid insight of personal issues and experiences of an
Individual's navigation through life's minefield in Pattaya Thailand. This story coupled with raw imaginative rhyme make this book an enthralling piece of work.
Whilst writing this book of adventure and verse I have not intentionally set out to undermine or insult any individual, race culture or creed. It is a humorous and sometimes serious account of my own personal experiences and misdemeanours. This book true to the courage of my convictions and pulls no punches. I have written exactly what I felt at the time whether in a state of anger, sadness or joy, and will not double back and change any of my opinions and points of view. It begins with my frustration and disillusionment of England, and more to the point London. The writing was on the wall and time for changes in my life. Little did I know of how profound and challenging these changes would turn out to be? The first section explains in detail certain sequences in my life regarding my health, wealth and happiness. Slotted in throughout this section are poignant poems appertaining to lying hypocritical Politicians, Banking and Insurance Fat Cats inflicting grief on people living in the UK. I have always told it like it is and defiantly ignored the politically correctness aspect. My curse and verse, whether humorous, witty or sad all derive from my own personal experiences and quirky views on life I am far from perfect and do not profess to be. I can laugh at my own shortcomings and welcome humorous criticism and piss taking. A good percentage of my life has revolved around sitting and watching the world go by in interesting locations. It's a wonderful thing to indulge in pure unadulterated observation. Then to write about it with freedom of expression and no holds barred .While here in Thailand on my first visit I met and married a Thai girl. It evolved that she tried every trick in the book to steal my money. In an effort to keep my money safe I entrusted it to my Daughter in England. It later evolved that my Daughter committed an act of extreme treachery and stole a large portion of this money. I divorced twenty five years ago. It later emerged that my Ex Wife Angela had poisoned my Daughters mind.
After reading my catalogue of classic errors, the sheer Calamity of it all, and the minefields I've navigated. I'm sure you'll agree that I am qualified and indeed justified in writing my thoughts and opinions on Thailand and in Particular Pattaya.
Writing these observations in rhyme, I think accentuates the dangers, the sadness and the joy of living in the extreme and indeed unique city of Pattaya.
Remember Thailand is still a developing country with a great deal of poverty, the rich and poor divide remains, therefore money is number one in Pattaya for one reason and one reason only, and that's survival. This is an animal instinct that exists in all of us. Some run, some fight for survival, some work and others solicit themselves, cheat and lie. A large percentage of marriages end and all marriages will have different ordeals, portrayals and time spans on its journey to divorce. After the bitterness, loneliness, sexual frustration, and traumas are over, a lonely man and lonely women remain. Life is short;
We will all come to know that. As a man I draw your attention to a man's point of view. There are three main criteria in a man's life to live relatively happy and stress free. Whatever any man says or thinks it cannot be truthfully denied.
Three extremely important boxes to tick!!!
1/ No mortgage and the pressures and obligations attached to the financial stress greedy banks bring down on you.
2/ No more freezing cold winters a warm and sunny climate all year round.
3/No more rejection and a place where age won't hold you back, a place with an array of the opposite
