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.

All around my home Phuket Thailand. Nest in crooks or openings around homes and buildings. Noicy and messing building nests.

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 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.

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.

Asia Center Foundation (ACF) helps disadvantaged children through different programs from 3 to 18 years old. From a pre-school, to sports programs, ACF enables children to develop themselves in many ways.

Why are so many children out of school?

Children who live in extreme poverty face many barriers to education including:

  • Child labor or having to work to add to the family income, or care for younger siblings
  • Low family income and therefore inability to afford school fees or supplies
  • Disruptive family circumstances (death, divorce, children left with grandparents)
  • No birth certificates

What is ACF doing to help disadvantaged children gain access to quality education?

Asia Center Foundation created many programs to help children and their parents deal with difficult situations for Thai and Burmese children from 3 to 18 years old. These include:

  • The Patong Childcare Center for 3 to 6 year old children from Patong and Kathu area provides them a safe, secure environment where they can learn (many for the first time) to follow a set routine, to obey rules, to develop their creativity and to behave in a social environment with children of their age.
  • Scholarship Program for children between 7 to 18 in the Phang Nga and Phuket provinces provides support and encouragement to families facing financial and social problems whose children benefit from the scholarship program.
  • Full care in a “safe house” called Ban Sii Som for children whose home environments are not safe or suitable for children.
  • JumpStart Learning Center for Burmese children who come from at-risk and poor families and for various reasons, who cannot attend Thai government schools.
  • The ACF Youth Program that focuses on Primary school students varying between the ages of 8 and 12 serves as a platform for life skills training, leadership and sports development.
