Patpong Gets Culture: The Candle Light Studio

Last week, the good folks over at Patpong’s new art gallery—The Candle Light Studio—graciously allowed me to pop in and snap some pics of the current exhibition: Sex, Drugs & Headache Stencil, which runs until the 1st of May, when there will be an end-of-exhibit party complete with DJs, showgirls, guest artists, and other surprises….

Seven’s 10 Top 10: Rules for Red-Lights

Sup kids, it’s that time of the week for frowing……..back, that is. Cuz it’s Friday. This oldie but moldy hails from—I think it was February of last year. First published on BKKNites.com, it set the stage for the rest of the Top 10 lists. It covers my favorite topic: the RLD. Let’s get to it……

Bangkok Bachelorhood: A Manifesto

Maybe not so much a manifesto as….a winge. Happy Sunday to you, reader. If you’ve perused my previous blogs, you already know that I’ve forsaken all Western norms for a life of debauched singlehood in Thailand. And while I’m ecstatic about this decision, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t wondered from time to…

Seven’s 10 Top 10: Dating–Don’t.

Hi folks, Seven here. This is a frowback from wayback. I wanna say it’s over a year old. Originally published by BKKNites. I submit it here again, unedited: “Earlier this year, Bangkok Nights published a piece I wrote in reaction to one of Stickman’s old blogs on the topic of dating bargirls. Around that same…

Oddendum: The Boobs of Patpong, An Exhibition

TS Eliot said, “April is the cruelest month,” and while Bangkok is in no way a waste land, I can’t help thinking the poet must’ve been to Thailand for Songkran at least once in his life. So far this year (2019), April has been a brutal beat-down of scorching temperatures into which three days of…

Take This Blog and Shove It, Part 2

Hey everyone, it’s Seven again. Back with a deep dive (God, I hate that phrase) into someone else’s idiotic take on Bangkok. It’s the second installment of a series where I point out the flaws in a “Why I don’t like Thais/Thailand/Bangkok” blog. It would be one thing if the people who spew this nonsense…

Thai Therapy: The Cure for Poverty

It’s Friday. And I’m frowin’ back. Way back, to 2018 when Sweet3Mango published this little ditty on how to do Thailand on a fixed budget. Got a tight monthly spending schedule? No worries. Relocate to sunnier skies and live large in the Land of Smiles. Here’s the re-post, nearly verbatim: “Hi guys, it’s me, Seven….

Seven on Holiday: Pattaya

Greetings friend, it is I–Bangkok Seven–and I’m on vacation. But that’s not going to stop me from posting something mildly entertaining to take up 10 minutes of your Sunday, no sir. I’m still on the ball. Speaking of balls, I’m in Pattaya. Ahh, Pattaya. Jewel in the eye of the Thailand whoremonger. Paradise for part-time…

Thai Therapy: The Cure for Heartbreak (or Loneliness)

Happy Friday, reader. It’s time for another Frowback, and this one—originally published on Sweet3Mango last year—is yet another of my attempts to justify the theory that a man can effectively solve a number of life’s problems simply by moving to Thailand. Today’s topic is likely at the top of many guys’ lists. Let’s get to…
