LIFE SE ASIA MAGAZINE

As a single parent with a 9yr and 5 yr old your lifestyle changes. I now for the time less time to explore and research.

So instead on reviews and places to explore will write about my experience as an expat. Divorced from a legal marriage, custody battle and navigating education system here as a non Thai reader or speaker.

So my magazine take a sight detour for now.

Will still write and try to bring awareness of human trafficking.

Will show case my photography as a source of income for us.

Impetigo or school sores

Common especially with children in school. Here in Thailand i have seen some very bad cases in children that can leave scares the rest of their life. Poor or village children i have seen the worst cases. Today had to send my children friends away because they had it. The boy could not go to school his case was so bad.

Source is the Mayo Clinic

Overview

Impetigo (im-puh-TIE-go) is a common and highly contagious skin infection that mainly affects infants and children. Impetigo usually appears as red sores on the face, especially around a child’s nose and mouth, and on hands and feet. The sores burst and develop honey-colored crusts.

Treatment with antibiotics is generally recommended to help prevent the spread of impetigo to others. It’s important to keep your child home from school or day care until he or she is no longer contagious — usually 24 hours after you begin antibiotic treatment.

Symptoms

Classic signs and symptoms of impetigo involve red sores that quickly rupture, ooze for a few days and then form a yellowish-brown crust. The sores usually occur around the nose and mouth but can be spread to other areas of the body by fingers, clothing and towels. Itching and soreness are generally mild.

A less common form of the disorder, called bullous impetigo, may feature larger blisters that occur on the trunk of infants and young children.

Causes

You’re exposed to the bacteria that cause impetigo when you come into contact with the sores of someone who’s infected or with items they’ve touched — such as clothing, bed linen, towels and even toys.

Prevention

Keeping skin clean is the best way to keep it healthy. It’s important to wash cuts, scrapes, insect bites and other wounds right away.

To help prevent impetigo from spreading to others:

  • Gently wash the affected areas with mild soap and running water and then cover lightly with gauze.
  • Wash an infected person’s clothes, linens and towels every day and don’t share them with anyone else in your family.
  • Wear gloves when applying antibiotic ointment and wash your hands thoroughly afterward.
  • Cut an infected child’s nails short to prevent damage from scratching.
  • Wash hands frequently.
  • Keep your child home until your doctor says he or she isn’t contagious.

Been Away

Been away for awhile.

Divorce with my Thai wife and custody of our children.

I did get total custody of them.

They will have a better chance in the future with me. Their mother and i will stay friends and I will allow her to see them often.

9 months process.

Will start writing again. Busy with the kids to help them adjust being back home. Both of them told the court they wanted to be with me.

Going to focus on promoting my art.

Updated my prices and now can ship the world

Tried a new tea . Tesco English breakfast. Smooth and mild aroma. Enjoy. My normal favorite is Ranong Green Tea. Has a stronger flavor and wonderful aroma.

Ranong is also more expensive. But both are worth a try.

For Freedom International updated. We do not recommend at this time.

I have lived in Thailand over 10 years and you cant miss seeing the sex trade even if you are not looking for it. Not just Phuket, but Pattaya Bangkok and rest of Thailand. Most of the girls are from Issan or North East Thailand. That is the poorest area if Thailand. The Thai culture is the daughter is responsible for taking care of her parents in old age. That today has translated to taking care of all the family. The daughter thru peer pressure culture pressure to provide money no matter the cost to herself. Brothers will have a family, home . While often the sister gives up her life. I have seen it. Holiday daughter comes home with the money while the father and brothers take the money get drunk play cards.

Human trafficking is a serious crime. Often a person trying to escape is tortured or killed.

There are many legitimate well organized NGO that can and will help.

We do not recommend this NGO.

If you need help or know someone that needs help in Thailand.

We do not suggest this NGO at this time.

We suggest A21 , Zoe international for children. Also Nightlight in Bangkok are excellent legitimate NGO.

What can be done!

For Freedom International is a organization that offers the girls a chance to break away.

About Us

About FFI

For Freedom International started with a dream to see the marginalized, vulnerable, and exploited set free from the injustice of oppression. That dream has drawn our team from around the globe to Thailand, a truly beautiful country in the throes of combatting human trafficking and sexual exploitation. FFI has begun our work in the province of Phuket, one of the largest sex tourism destinations in Southeast Asia, and we’re implementing our holistic approach outward, trusting God to bring freedom and hope to the people of Phuket, to the rest of Thailand, to Southeast Asia, and back to those living in the West.

My magazine added this.

In our journey in life. There is beauty all around us. Sadly also much sadness uglyness. Hate. We all experience and see this. In my photography I try to show the beauty of life as I see it.  I have loved much and had great heartache. But thankful for even the heartache as I learn from them. 
We can decide to see and focus on the beauty and love  around us or become cynical or have a cold heart.   I have always chosen beauty and love. I hope I do that the rest of my journey of life.

Sample of some of the beauty that I see in my everyday life.


Beauty of family and my kids


Some of my photography is with my phone and Adobe apps .  The rest I process on my Mac with Adobe.

Taken at Wat Sala Loi Korat Thailand 


Jaeb and I went to the market and we both like pork.  

We both like pork so I was looking for a pork loin or steak.  I saw her looking at intestines.  We bought both. 

So what did she cooks for us in the morning.  Yes the pork intestines. And with her cooking it is all great. 

Have you tried them?



On the weekends I cook breakfast. 

 Mixture of Thai and American.   

My favorite dipping sauce  is Maepranom Dipping Sauce 

SWEET SPICY 


What is your favorite breakfast?

Today starts a new chapter in my life.  It follows the darkest thirty days of my 67 years on my journey of life.  

This morning I am on auto pilot.  Inside I am empty, hollow.  I did what I always do on Monday morning,  get my kids off to school.  

This morning will change my routine.  Having my milk tea and reflection on my life and where I go.  How to try save what is left of me.  

After listening to the birds and trying to make sence of who I am will get to cleaning the home. The home I use to love but now the grief of the one person that completed me is not here.

It is after Christmas and I still turn on my Christmas Tree lights on at night.  I think my kids like it and I do also.  

I will take down our little tree next week? But will be with sadness. 

No just kidding not our tree but this one below

The longest was several years ago in the US.  Just my son Sam and me.  It was a live tree or was when we brought it home.  Was April before I took it down.  Yes April and still had some green
