Take This Blog and Love It Part 6

October 14, 2019 By bangkok7

Hello gents, It’s me Seven again. Back with another op-ed praising some smart person’s “love Thailand” blog. Amazingly, this one was written by a female farang. Shocking, right? How refreshing is it to not read some whiney diatribe about how her “eat-pray-love” holiday didn’t pan out how she expected. How nice not to be called

Take This Blog and LOVE It, Part 5

For this week’s “Love It” entry, we’ve got a great blog from the good people over at Thaizer. They’ve found a lot to like about this amazing country, all accurate. Skipping the ones in every list (BPCFW—beaches, people, cost of living, food, and weather), here’s the rest of those fine traits that make Thailand what

It’s Monday, folks. And what does every Monday have in common? They all suck. So let’s find something positive to meditate on. Here’s another ‘love-Thailand’ blog by a happy visitor who does nothing but sing the praises of TLOS. And as a kindred spirit, I’m all too happy to join in the love fest. Skipping

In our continuing effort to lift up blogs that explain why we expats choose to live here, this week we turn to bangkok.com’s list of reasons to love Thailand. Again as last week, we’re skipping the BPCFW’s (beaches, people, cost of living, food, and weather), and instead focusing on the aspects most people miss. Let’s

Take This Blog and LOVE It, Part 2

Greetings reader, it’s Seven here. If you’ve read my previous blogs you know about my “Take This Blog and Shove It” series wherein I destroyed badly-written hate-Thailand articles. That series is at its end, because I’ve realized that 1—there’s no way to stop poor writers from producing shitty blogs about the country I love, and

Take This Blog and Shove It: Part 12

What’s up my dudes, Seven here. I’ve got one final “Shove It” article for you. Recently I accidentally read two articles from different “Bangkok nightlife” websites, each of which tried to wittily describe the various types of annoying farang one might come across in the gogo bar. I think both narrowed the stereotypes (narreotypes, copyright

Hello reader, it is I. Bangkok Seven. Here to regale you with another shitty blog written by a numbskull and my accompanying evisceration of said blog. Let’s see, which literary underwear skid-mark have we got today? Oh look! Another overweight female Millennial came to Thailand and—surprise!—didn’t like it. I can’t wait to hear what this

What’s up gents, Seven here. It’s time to take apart another “why I hate Thailand” blog from 2014 where an absolute asshole who claims to have worked and lived in Thailand for “several months” (which of course makes him an expert and who) makes some pretty bold—and completely wrong—claims. Per usual, his identity will be

Take This Blog and Shove It, Part 9

Recently I ran across a blog called “8 reasons why I hate Thailand” written in 2011 by an American woman in her 30s. Now, if you have a brain in your head, you already know why a white unattractive battle-axe would hate Thailand. They all do, because they’re not relevant humans in Thailand. They have

Take This Blog and LOV–I mean Shove It, P...

August 12, 2019 By bangkok7

Hey friends, it’s Seven, and I thought I had another “take this blog and love it” for you. Just like last week’s, it’s a blog by a terrible writer whose previous work has found its way to my “take this blog and shove it” series. There’s not much in this tripe to actually love, but
