23-03-2016 – Bye Bye Patong Thailand

It’s a sad moment. I will leave Patong, Phuket now. Been here for 4 weeks, and within those week i had a good time. Seen lots of culture, lots of new things and most of the time see the beach and feel the sun shine on me… But the day is come that i will fly to Kuala Lumpur now,  new destination with new things to explore. I’m also gonna see a friend. Chat with him already sinds juli 2014 and now finally we gonna meet.

Phuket was nice, Patong was busy, lots of tourism but after couple of days you get used to it. Tried many different Thai Food! The people are very kind and will help you where they can do. Sometimes you see tourists who don’t have any respect and thats sad. The people here try to get most out of it for a great holiday for the visitor. And when they don’t get any respect back… makes me sad.

The local people i know now, woman who makes every day a fruit shake at the beach, a guy who makes pancakes with fruit, The guys from the parasol and matt. Called them the 100b guys. A Parasol was 100Bath. Then the 2 friendly persons from the restaurantl.  The helpers in FamilyMart. Also the guy from Pharmacy who take me inside at moment i got a blackout on the streets and give me the medicine so im feel great day later already! Thanks for that! Finally… the massage guys. After 4 days told them all i’m gay and goto the gay massage ar “The Royal Paradise” complex. After that they make lot of funny jokes and still scream to me “MASSAGE” with a big smile.

I will gonna miss you all, and all of you asked me if i will come back… After writing this blog i have feeling that it will happen for sure. Thailand, you people have taken my heart and give me a wonderful time

ขอบคุณ (Thanks YOU!)

27-02-2016 – Story from a local in Thailand

This is not about the beauty, not about happiness, but a little reflection of a person who live in Thailand.

I was chatting on a gay app called “Grindr” yes, for those who didn’t know. Im gay. but whatever…
I was chatting with a guy and was a nice conversation. We talked about some simple things and he told me he work as massage. I wanted goto a Thai Massage, but around my hotel lots of lady’s ask me: Wanna Massage… Wanna Massage… and it didn’t feel good. So i asked him where he worked.

He give me his location and i went to his salon. I told him i will arrive around 14:00 and outside he was waiting. Off course he was at work, so we went to the room and started the massage.

We talked also, normally you lay down and relax, but we had a conversation, a good one. I asked him some questions and he asked me questions. At a certain moment we talked about difference of Thailand and Netherlands. I asked him what i get per month for this job. He told me around 7000-8000 bath. It depends on how many customers he had. Yesterday he had 2 customers so get 100bath per customer. I paid 400bath (10 euro) for the oil massage. So 300bath goes to the owner.

He also told me that it isn’t enough for living (8000bath is around 204 euro). He send some money to his parents more land inward. They are not able to work anymore. So he has to live from 204 euro minus the amount he send to his parents. For me was that a moment of reflection.

He asked me to sit, so he can do my back and told me i was a very “friendly person” he said: lots of customers are touching me and are rude. After that saying to me i had again a reflection. How can someone rude agains a person who worked hard for his money? Work 6 days between 12:00 – 23:30 and 1 day off.

After the massage was done i thank you him for the open conversation and the nice massage as well. And people think now im crazy, but give him som extra for his family and himself. Because i will survive when i help someone… He need it.

True, its the normal way of living here, but if every tourist can be little more generous then the Thai people can live little bit better.
