LIFE SE ASIA MAGAZINE

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?
