LIFE SE ASIA MAGAZINE

Help us get our book published.

Kickstarter an all-or-nothing funding model. If our project doesn’t reach its goal, then funds don’t get collected, and no money changes hands.

Chinese Shrines Phuket Thailand

Chinese Folk Religion

Book will document the shrines with emphasis on beauty .

I started visiting the shrines out of curiosity and photographing them several years ago. Certainly nothing like them in the USA. Coming from the Phuket International Airport on the main highway is Tha Rue. Most of the shrines are off the tourist path. Side streets and allies.

Kickstarter is a crowd source company for artist , writers, creative projects.

Multiple rewards for backers.

Book will be available as PDF, eBook and a hard copy. Approximately 80 to 120 pages. 8×10 image wrap cover printed by Blurb.

Mostly full page spread and some across double page. Printed on quality paper. Will add description each shrine and location.

My Goal is to preserve my art for my children in a physical format where they actually can hold vs digital format.

Please visit our project at Kickstarter to learn more.

Info from Wikipedia
The Javan myna (Acridotheres javanicus), also known as the white-vented myna, is a species of myna. It is a member of the starling family.


The Javan myna is mainly black. The wings are brownish-black, and the primaries have white bases. The undertail-coverts are white. There is a short crest on the forehead. The beak legs and feet are yellow. The eyes are lemon-yellow. The immature is browner. Its length is 21–23 cm (8.3–9.1 in). Its weight is about 100 g (3.5 oz).

Distribution and habitat

The Javan myna is native to Java and Bali and has been introduced to southeast Thailand, southern Malaysia, Singapore, Sumatra, the Lesser Sundas, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, and Japan. It is found in cities and cultivated areas.

Behaviour

The Javan myna is omnivorous and eats seeds, fruit, nectar, insects and human waste. It is often found in large groups. Its voice is similar to that of the common myna. It builds its nest in holes. The eggs are bluish-glaucous. Javan mynas are bold and not very afraid of humans.Javan mynas are kept in cages in Malaysia and Indonesia.The birds scavenge in groups, minimum two but usually three or more, with all except one feeding and one usually at a vantage point keeping a look out. If the bird that is keeping watch sees anything that might pose a threat, it alarms the group members with a high pitch tweet the all flee the area swiftly.

The sexes are similarly plumaged, and young birds are a duller version of the adult. This sparrow breeds over most of temperate Eurasia and Southeast Asia, where it is known as the tree sparrow.
The Eurasian tree sparrow’s untidy nest is built in a natural cavity, a hole in a building or the large nest of a European magpieor white stork. The typical clutchis five or six eggs which hatch in under two weeks. This sparrow feeds mainly on seeds, but invertebrates are also consumed, particularly during the breeding season. As with other small birds, infection by parasites and diseases, and predation by birds of prey take their toll, and the typical life span is about two years.

China, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam are dumping more plastic into oceans than the rest of the world combined

Not only does plastic kill marine life and choke seabirds, but toxic fragments from plastic can end up in the seafood we eat. It also requires decades to break down.

The situation isn’t hopeless though. The best way to cut plastic waste is to cut consumption, experts say.

We support sharing being informed about human trafficking .

Reported The Nation

Thailand health officials say the number of people requiring treatment for dengue fever has already topped the 50,000 mark in the first eight months of 2018.

According to the Ministry of Health’s Bureau of Epidemiology, a total of 50,079 cases have been reported from the 77 provinces by August 27, of whom 65 died from complications related to the disease.

The areas where you are most likely to contract dengue include Phuket, Nakorn Pathom, Phichit, Maehongsorn and Krabi.

Dengue fever is an infectious disease carried by mosquitoes in mostly tropical regions around the world. Dengue used to be called “break-bone fever” because it often causes severe joint and muscle pain that patient’s describe feels like bones are breaking.

People contract the dengue virus from the bite of an infectious Aedes mosquito – you can’t get dengue from another human.

The Ministry of Health says there are three types of dengue fever which, in order of less severe to most, are: the typical uncomplicated dengue fever, dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHS) and dengue shock syndrome (DSS).

The World Health Organisation estimates there may be 50–100 million dengue infections worldwide every year.

However, new research from the University of Oxford and the Wellcome Trust suggests that the number is more likely to be 390 million dengue infections per year worldwide.

Father’s Love Letter

I became aware involved about human trafficking when the woman I love was traffic.

Most of the NGO that help are Christian. There are Muslim also and my next post will write about them.

Many of the females are traffic in sex for a better life often to help their families or tricked.

When a mother encourage a daughter to be a prostitute how does she escape the culture. That culture is wide spread in Issan or the NE Thailand.

How can she get her freedom?

In my view and experience is God.

I ask my pastor KR at All Nations Church Phuket Thailand for some words.

Want to thank KR and Father’s Love.

He gave me the resource
