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

Going Keto in Thailand

October 13, 2019 By bangkok7

One of Thailand’s many amazing attributes is the food. Thai food is a culinary odyssey unlike any other, but even more exciting is the vast array of foreign chefs, fusion restaurants, and avant garde establishments that make life here a foodie’s fantasy. Unfortunately for a middle-aged man like me, this also means getting fat. A

Delirium Days, Part 5

October 11, 2019 By bangkok7

Hello, and happy Friday. Bangkok Seven here, with another frowback to help wile away the remaining hours between now and the weekend.

Delirium Days, Part 4

October 4, 2019 By bangkok7

Hello again, Seven here. Returning to the interweb to post another Frowback in the vein of the last few Fridays. It’s a drunken, wine-soaked litaise (literary malaise, copyright BKK7) on the topic of impending death. I confess, it’s something I think about a lot, though the nature of that introspection has changed over time. When

State of the Red-Light: Nana Plaza

September 29, 2019 By bangkok7

Of the three red light districts in Bangkok, Nana has always been my 2nd favorite. But the times, they are a-changin’ gents, and the RLD isn’t immune to it. Used to be I’d hit Cowboy and Nana once a week, just for the chick variety and change of scenery. But over time I’ve kind of
