New Thailand Ebook: Living in Thailand by Pete Mees

Living in Thailand
What is it like to move from the west and live in Thailand?

One man’s account of moving from America to Thailand in 2004 and what he found when he arrived.

“Living in Thailand” has many photos and is now 104 pages long.

We’ve received excellent feedback on this ebook already. In 2006 it was released as a free ebook of 47 pages. After 34,000+ downloads the author has fleshed it out and added photos.

All the response we’ve had about this ebook is that it’s an exceptional read and gives a good introduction to what it’s like living in Thailand for a western expat coming to live or vacation in the Land of Smiles.

From the book:

The “f – it” attitude is important. As an American I think we have less of it than perhaps some other cultures.   In school we were made to be good. It was not a democracy in the classroom. We didn’t just get rowdy as an entire class if we all felt like it. And I find it hard to believe that we EVER got as loud as a classroom of Thai kids when they get going. Picture 45 kids mainlining liquid crack via Intravenous during the class right before yours.

In Isaan one time I had lunch with some top administrators from the department of education… the first thing the top guy ordered was some rice bugs for appetizer.  Oh, and some beer for everyone.  There is no stigma attached to those that order beer at lunch time here in Thailand. Even among teachers!  It’s normal.  It’s easy to get used to also…

————

From the “First Time for Everything List”, another 40 are listed in the book:

  • 1st time I saw thin persons outnumber chubby, heavy, obese people.
  • 1st time I saw pretty or acceptable girls outnumber ugly or undesirable girls.
  • 1st time I ate bugs. (rice bugs, crickets, grasshoppers, ant larvae, hellgrammites, giant Chinese cockroaches, silkworm larvae, and scorpions (which landed me in the emergency room!)
  • 1st time I ate such spicy food (yum woonsen) that I sweat profusely, felt violently ill, and recovered within an hour.
  • 1st time I had diarrhea more than 10 days.
  • 1st time I saw a fight where a guy was cut in the stomach with a broken bottle and then his head was kicked and bottles were bounced off his face after he was unconscious. He died. So, first time I saw a murder too.
  • 1st time I threw water at people and had water thrown at me for 24 hours over a 3-day period. (Songkran)
  • 1st time I saw ladyboys that WERE prettier than girls.
  • 1st time I spent less than 50 cents USD for breakfast and lunch and less than $1.00 USD for dinner.
  • 1st time I slept on a tile floor; a concrete floor; a hard bed; a wooden couch.
  • 1st time I had my crotch grabbed by anyone other than a woman.
  • 1st time I’ve eaten black beetles, grasshoppers, crickets, silk worm larvae, queen red ant larvae, giant Chinese cockroach, and a huge Scorpion (which landed me in the hospital overnight).

Thailand’s Sickest – a Top Thailand Thriller

Same great book. Better title.

Thailand's Sickest is a fiction novel set in Patong Beach, Thailand and is an action-thriller.

Here is “Thailand’s Sickest / Cleansed” for purchase. I’ve not changed the book title at all the distribution channels yet, it will be month to get to all of them.

Thailand’s Sickest – is a full-length vigilante fiction novel, set in Patong Beach, Thailand.

Here are some reviews:

“What a fantastically action packed, scary and realistic story! I really, really enjoyed it – I read it in one day because I just couldn’t put it down! My only criticism would be that it needed a touch more editing, to get rid of some repetition of facts and quite a few grammatical and typing errors. Other than that little quibble, which really did not detract from the book at all, it was spot on. I love that the author has left things open for another book with some of the main characters, although it didn’t feel at all unfinished as some books can when they have more possibilities in the storyline. I will definately be looking for more fiction books from Mike Fook.”

And this review from a NAVY SEAL:

“Sir for a first work of fiction wowowowowow. This book isn’t for the feint of heart. If you struggle with the reality of what really bad people do then this book will upset you. If you you want a look at what evils this world really has to offer, if you want to see something that isn’t sanitized, or sugar coated, then read this book……

I have been all over the world and have seen my share of the dark side. This book captures the horror.

I liked that Mr. Fook was able to show the difference and varying degrees of bad guys. He was able to show that even the good guys are flawed and that too is a reality.

Readers this book will shock you like a dip into an ice filled pool of water. It will make your blood boil and you will want to rage. The sad part is that it is all too real. Just like in reality sometimes not all the bad guys are caught and sometimes even those we save are never saved.”

This vigilante fiction novel is not likely to appeal to people with a weak stomach. Anyone with a soul might not enjoy this book. If you enjoy payback stories – this is one of the most hard-hitting you’ll find.

**********

Thailand is the kind of place that, when you arrive – you’ll wonder – What in the hell is going on?

Thai and western cultures couldn’t be more different if Orson Wells created them.

If you have never come to Thailand before – you will be happy to have read all 128 pages. You’ll have a better picture of the dangers and be a lot more street smart than you would be without it.

This book is selling a couple hundred copies per month – and sales are increasing month-to-month. There’s only one reason for that -word of mouth. People are telling others that the book has some good information. Someone told US the book is great – thinking we didn’t have it for sale yet.

You need this book:

If you are a first time visitor to Thailand.

If you are the type of person to get into fights, or get taken advantage of during scams – you need this book.

If you are going to drink a lot, indulge in the other nightlife passion that most guys come for – you need this book.

If you are a woman interested in dating Thai men – you need this book.

  • 128 pages packed with new information (8/2010) you won’t find in ANY other Thailand guide.
  • Illustrated
  • Easy to read formatted Adobe PDF file you can read on your Nokia, iPhone, or other smart phone, notepad, netbook, iPad, Macbook Pro, Mac anything, or desktop PC computer.
  • If you have a KINDLE, IPHONE, IPAD, IPOD, SONY READER, NOOK, or other ebook reader – after you purchase the PDF version here below, write: mikefook@gmail.com to request the appropriate version of the book for your reader.
  • Sold to buyers in – Thailand, UK, Germany, Ireland, Australia, Canada, USA, Spain, Korea, Philippines, Denmark, Netherlands, Mexico, Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Switzerland, and even Fiji. Plus the book is selling many copies at Amazon Kindle Store each month… and we don’t have access to where those sales are coming from.

NOTE – There is nothing in this book promoting illegal activities. Shooting pornography in Thailand is a punishable offense with jail-time and big fines. Underage sex is a serious offense that can get you years in jail. The chapters in Thai Black Book covering these subjects reveal Thailand’s stance on these subjects and doesn’t offer any information about how you can obtain illegal drugs, sex, or employment shooting pornography. What you get instead is 128 pages of Thailand street smarts that will help you have a better vacation than you would have otherwise.

We’ve tested three prices – $19.95, $9.99, and $4.95. At $19.95 and $9.99 we’re not selling as many copies as we could. At $4.95 we’re giving them away.

for now the book is just $19.95 $4.95 (PDF format – or, email us to request Kindle, Sony, or Palm formatted ebooks) –

I created this unique 22 day meditation course as a way to help you learn a simple Vipassana like meditation – without religion or dogma attached to it.

Meditation is a physical act… the extra fluff of Buddhism, Vipassana, Pali language, rules, heirarchical levels, etc – is completely unnecessary and probably hinders those that place a priority on it.

This easy to understand meditation ebook is 75 pages long and illustrated. If you need a format other than those listed above, write us at the Contact Page email address.

Enjoy!
