Welcome to my website.  Unlike the universe, this website has a purpose: to offer rants, tirades, opinions and discussion about books on Thailand, give an overview of nightlife in Thailand and, yes, to provide a few news items which might not appear elsewhere.  And to have some fun.

Bar, club and restaurant owners who would like to send material on their special events, birthday bashes, anniversary parties, etc., are welcome to do so but please remember men in Thailand are a bit jaded so if you’re just going to offer the usual free gourmet food and free full band entertainment and free beautiful and eager-to-please women, well, the lads have been there, done that. So do try to offer potential patrons something special. ;-)

There is a contest every two weeks when this column appears and the first to answer the question correctly or identify a photograph correctly will receive vouchers worth at least 3,500 baht in food and drink, i.e., 500 baht each, from Larry's Dive, Shadow Bar, The Old Dutch, the Big Mango, Electric Blue, The Duke of Wellington pub, and Bourbon Street Restaurant. The prizes will build up in case anyone doesn't win it immediately so the bonanza for the eventual winner could get quite interesting.  It will double to 7,000 and, if still no winner, to 10,500, etc.  Second prize is a "I Support Single Moms" T-shirt.  And please remember a part of all money received from the sale of my books goes to needy Thais (in the form of payment to go go dancers, waitresses and hostesses).



Last year she was no doubt transplanting rice and fighting off mosquitoes and snakes; now she is a go go dancer on Soi Cowboy and her picture is leading off a website column.  It just goes to show you.  Um, it just goes to show you something, not sure what...




Loy Krathong


Thailand's most beautiful festival.  Lots of environmental friendly krathongs this year.  The pictures below were taken along Sukhumvit Road and at Benjasiri Park beside the Emporium.  The kids swim out and grab the lucky coins off the krathongs (if any).

Halloween I


Two days before Loy Krathong was Halloween and of course coyote dancers celebrated in style.  Is the baby yours?





And below some of the Londoner staff, and a couple of shots from Soi Cowboy:

Halloween II


Naturally, some people decided to celebrate Halloween in a different way.  As when on Sukhumvit soi 33 some of the Demonia girls ventured over to Music Station.  There are now almost more S&M clubs and houses of domination in Bangkok and Pattaya than there are 7-11's.  Trick or treat.









And Rumor-Control Headquarters has it that the girls will be back in Music Station, Sukhumvit soi 33 on the 28th, a Saturday.  Bangkok does provide a lot of cultural activities, does it not?

They Never Learn


A friend of mine told me of an event he witnessed the other day in a hotel lobby in the lower Sukhumvit area.  An elderly farang guy and his much younger Thai chick came down in the elevator and she was all lovey-dovey with this guy, honey-voiced and all.  But at some point she asked if he would mind going back to the room to get a bag she forgot.  He smiled and said of course no problem.  As soon as he was out of site, she grabbed her cell phone and began speaking in a crude, raucous voice to someone whom my friend had no doubt was her Thai boyfriend.  She was quite upset during and at the end of the conversation.  She rang off and when the elderly companion appeared, explained in dulcet tones that her sister had called and how she was having problems with her boyfriend and would he mind if she spent the day with her sister and returned about midnight.  The old fellow smiled and agreed.  And he escorted her out of the hotel, still all lovey-dovey.


Why are guys like this so naive?  Of course it might be that he suspects she has a Thai boyfriend and doesn't care.  But, more likely, this is yet another guy who comes to Thailand and can't believe how friendly the bargirls are and goes with the first one who comes over to him.  Or possibly he wasn't getting laid in the States at all so it is all wonderful to him.  The problem with many of these meetings is that instead of the guy getting the bargirl he would have liked and picking her, the bargirl who approaches him has already picked him; and so the die is cast.  All we can do is to remind guys coming to the Land of Smiles for the first time is that a lot of guys have found wonderful Thai wives.  But most of them did NOT go with the first girl who came over to them; and a lot of them had already learned some Thai and learned a few things about the nightlife scene as well as Thai culture.  And they may have found the right one for them only on their second or third trip to the Kingdom.  In Thailand, he who hesitates is not lost; take your time, for Christ's sake!

A Thai Visa the Easy Way



A friend sent me this:  "Talking about cheap flights ...Today was my visa trip day to Singapore, i bought a cheap ticket with JetStar, only 1800 b. round trip.  My flight out was at 13.45, and from that i should have a bit of time at the airport of Singapore, and then back for a beer in a Bangkok bar.  Departure from SG to Bkk was 19.20.

But..... Big But, my flight was delayed by two hours, so no chance in hell that I would be able to catch that return flight, and the 19.20 flight was not delayed from SG, means that I would be sleeping at the airport over night... fuck that.

Ok, time to change my flight, hmmm, no personnel from JetStar at the gate, no personnel at the info desk... after one hour walking around at the gates etc. I found a lady who called jetStar office in Bkk, they even don't know that the flight was delayed.. hmmm

After one hour talking by phone with people who don't even know their own name, I finally could change my ticket to Friday, now came the next problem, how to get out from the airport ....

I went to Immigration, with my passport, filled in my arrival card, normally no chance in hell that they would let me back in, I haven't been out yet.

Hahahaha, got my 3 months visa and no questions asked...Tomorrow I will change my trip to SG again, this time to coming Feb -10.  This was my fastest visa trip all time. and never was out from Thailand."

Khun Nana's Corner

Khun Nana is a savvy local expat who keeps in shape by hitting most of the bars of Nana Plaza as often as possible.  From his vast experience, he will enlighten and entertain us with his recollections of the bar scene be they humorous, tragic or somewhere in between.

Probably the most puzzling aspect of living in the Playboy’s paradise that we call Thailand is the seemingly endless supply of western guys who come here to have a bit of fun and end up becoming convinced that their favorite hooker has become their girlfriend.  I must admit that although it is always entertaining (in a sad and slightly sadistic way) it also can be depressing and mind boggling to watch these guys self-destruct.  Maybe I am becoming soft in my advanced age, because I used to be able to laugh at these sad sacks but lately the constant whiny tales of woe being told on the street, in bars around town and in the Thai based websites has just become annoying and frustrating for me.  In actuality the gals are so transparent in their dealings with customers that any guy who pretends to not know the whole story from the first day is just being disingenuous.  All the gals want to do is make easy money and go about their lives.  Even the stories
they tell guys in order to get extra money are the same over and over again (the buffalo is dead, my Mother is sick) and even a 10 year old child could see through their games.  A good friend once told me after a 3 week trip to Bangkok “never in all of my life have I seen so many guys lose their hearts and wallets to gals that are so transparently predatory.”   I recall Dean had written in a column a couple of years ago that the sad guys who “sponsor” these gals by sending them money every month from overseas seem to fall into 3 categories:

1) Guys who actually think the gal is their girlfriend
2) Guys who feel sorry for the gal and think they are going to “save” her
3) Guys who just like to collect women as a hobby

Certainly guys from category number 3 have nothing to worry about and can spend their money any way that they desire without any negative consequences..  Categories 1 and 2 are the crux of the problem and the only rational explanation I can give for their behavior is to say that from my experience these are guys who have very low self-esteem and therefore turn a blind eye to any problems that occur in their dealings with women.  Regardless,  I would like to entertain you readers with a recent email I received from a close mate that highlights many of the pitfalls in the “sponsoring” of naughty nightlife gals:

“Hey mate got to tell you that little pie-eater gal I met at xxx bar last year just popped by last night for a round of hide the salami.  She came by and was immediately called up on the mobile by her sponsor who started asking where she was and what she was doing.  She said that she was at a friends place and was about to sleep, but he kept pushing her for answers saying that he didn’t believe her.  She told him that if he kept going on she was going to go out and find a man to go short time with. She then pulled me toward her and I relieved her of her knickers and started going down on her with this muppet still on the phone.  She then put her phone on silent and gave me a good servicing.  When she looked at the mobile an hour later she had 32 missed calls from the loser.  He rang again immediately and she told him that she was going crazy with his harassment and if he kept going on she was going to dump him.  She hung up and threw herself at me again and after managing a second round of sex she was on with him again and he was telling her that wherever she was he was ordering her to go home immediately.  She was crying at this point and eventually hung up.”

“So I devised a plan for her to tell him every time he insists she cancel whatever plans she has to suit his sick needs he has to send her 5000 baht. She will increase this amount over time, and if he ever says no to this she simply doesn’t go home.. Then after she has accumulated enough money she can just dump him, or if he ever stops sending the ever increasing amounts she can cry and say he doesn’t love her anymore and as you know he will just keep sending more money.  Either way she wins and the loser gets what he deserves.  She said whenever he pulls this crap she will come over so that I can fuck her while listening to him whine like a little girl on the other end of the phone.  She says she will scream like crazy when she comes so that we can hear him melt down on the other end.”

“When will these people realize that no girl anywhere in the world wants a tosser like that?  At least I will get a lot of free monkey sex out of it.”

Until next time my friends-have fun and be happy!!

Khun Nana

I was shopping in one of the Villa Markets the other day and came across a brand of Kleenex I hadn't noticed before.  I quote: "FACIAL TISSUES.  MADE FROM 100 % VIRGIN FIBERS."  Now that is interesting.  Tissues made from virgin fibers.  So where do they get the virgins?  Import them from North Korea?


What Did I Do Wrong?

This is a strange one.  I sent an e-mail to the Windy Inn off Walking Street in Pattaya asking if they had a room for three nights.  I never stayed there before.  I got this reply:

dear John
please let we know what is your passport country ?
best regards,

So I sent this:

I am American and have been back in Thailand this time for nine years.  I
live in Bangkok.  Please let me know availability and price.  Best, Dean

And I got this:

Dear sir
we are so sorry as on your holiday already fully booked
best regards,

Hmmm.  Could it be after George Bush there are folks out there who don't like Americans or is it that they don't like my books?

Sometimes idiots in Pattaya and elsewhere do get what they deserve:

A typical Soi Cowboy scene.  Certainly Soi Cowboy is far from dead and some of the bars have a lot of customers even during the week but, according to the girls, lots of walk-through lookers and not enough Big Spenders.  Not to worry, the colorful, lively soi will continue onward and upward awaiting the end of the recession.  And below is one of Chris Coles's paintings of Soi Cowboy.  He does capture the flavor, does he not?

Chris Cole's great cover for a new Christopher Moore book.

here's a riff Chris did recently on Bangkok Noir:
The Noir side of the Bangkok Night has always been one of its most delicious ingredients, kind of like that extra special secret sauce that makes the first taste of a Thai gourmet feast so exciting and interesting.  Without the assorted cast of thugs, scammers, traffickers, dealers, perverts, hitmen and the endless stream of fugitives from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe and North America, not to mention from Thailand itself, without this glorious and colorful assortment of Noir characters and faces and posturing, the Bangkok Night would be as boring as Singapore. And then, taking it up a notch, blend into Bangkok's actual Noir, the delicious Bangkok Noir novels of Christopher G. Moore, Stephen Leather, Dean Barrett, John Burdett and Jake Needham, the Noir Thai gangster films like the original Pang Brothers' BANGKOK DANGEROUS (not the remake which turned out to be a marshmellow) and Smith Timsawit's PROVINCE 77, the Noir hip-hop soundtrack of Thaitanium and my own series of Noir paintings and portraits, and you get a Noir explosion, beautiful and frightening and thrilling all at once, making the Noir side of Bangkok a sparkling treasure to be savored and cherished, even if not actually consumed.

Letters from Readers


Hi Dean,

Good to see you have returned safely.  I would like to say thank you for the T-shirt emblazoned “I support single mum’s” (my teerak now wants a baby!!).

PJ met with me as planned at The Old Dutch and he and his staff were most hospitable.

Come over to Sydney and enjoy some of our hospitality (stupid suggestion considering what you have to compare it with J.Keep up the GREAT work and don’t overdo the “research”…… Competition: You took the photo’s from Sheba’s & Tilac. Cheers & stay lucky!!  Kangaroo Kev


Dean, I would like to change my answer to Shebas and Sams 2000 since its daytime.  Thanks, Lars


Good thinking, Lars, daytime would more likely be Sams 2000 than Tilac.  Which it was.  You won.

I got responses from my friends who grew up in China and Japan about the kanji characters associated with the BNE sign.  My friend from China says that it states "Invite Up" and my friend from Japan says it states "Show Up".  I guess that it is some sort of invitation related to whatever BNE is.  That's assuming that the person who created the sign knows what BNE really is.  chok dee!  Craig-Ben



Thanks, Craig, the sign often has two Chinese characters below the BNE and they literally mean "join" (or participate) and "up".  Which doesn't mean a hell of a lot to me.  I suspect the graffiti artist, if that is who it is, is just using characters at ramdom.  But there may indeed be a connection in the mind of the person doing this stuff.




Hi Dean,

I was always puzzled by how Asians respond in America if you do not know their nationality. When I needed a letter from Japan translated I asked the nationality of a few people I dealt with occasionally and was met with scowls. I would then preface the question of their nationality by asking them if they could tell me if I was Irish, Slovakian or German. They hadn't a clue.

Much later, after learning English, my friend from Japan was visiting and we were walking on a tourist pier in California when a group of young female Asians walked by chattering in their native language. As a test, I asked my friend what country the girls were from and she gave me a strange look and said "How would I know?" Well if they can't tell each other apart, even with the clue of hearing them speak their native language, then how am I supposed to know!!? 

   Guilt free in the West, Ken  Utah

Over 3,800 Thais including monks and teachers and children have been murdered by Muslims in Southern Thailand and

over 45 Thais have been beheaded including Buddhist monks







Silver Spring, Maryland (AFP) - "Islam is "not responsible" for the bloodbath at an army base in Texas where Muslim-American army Major Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly gunned down 13 people, the prayer leader at the mosque where the officer regularly worshipped said Friday."  Really?!  So why didn't the Muslim asshole just shoot himself in the leg; then he wouldn't have been sent overseas.  Yes, Islam IS responsible.  Islam is hate.  This guy was carrying out the messages of the Koran.  But as I have said many times, Muslims never blame other Muslims for anything.  No, he was NOT harassed; I was in the Army for four years: Majors don't get harassed.


“At the end of the day this is not about his religion — the fact that this man was a Muslim,” Senator Graham said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”  (Another American with his politically correct head in the sand) And worst of all, the politically correct NYTimes actually said this several days after the attack: "Major Hasan is accused in the attacks last week, but little is known about what might have driven him."  Little is known??  What bullshit!



Fort Hood suspect Nidal Malik Hasan attended same mosque as two 9/11 terrorists




Fort Hood gunman had told US military colleagues

that infidels should have their throats cut

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the gunman who killed 13 at America's Fort Hood military base, once gave a lecture to other doctors in which he said non-believers should be beheaded and have boiling oil poured down their throats.


One Army doctor who knew him said a fear of appearing discriminatory against a Muslim soldier had stopped fellow officers from filing formal complaints.  (In other words, 13 Americans died because Americans didn't want to offend Muslims.)


Meanwhile in Arizona the Press whitewashes the murder of a Muslim daughter by her father:


Faleh Hassan Almaleki, an immigrant from Iraq living in the Phoenix suburb of Peoria, had become angry about his 20 year old daughter Noor Almaleki. Noor had set-up accounts for herself on and, had posted “alluring” photos of herself on a webpage for aspiring actresses and models, and was living with her boyfriend and her boyfriend’s mom. This all meant that Noor had become “too westernized” for the tastes of her Muslim father, so Faleh Hassan Almaleki ran over his daughter (along with the boyfriend’s mom) as a means of committing an “honor killing.”  Reports, however, spoke of a clash of family values, not once mentioning the words Muslim fanatic.  PC will get you killed.

The cancellation of David Horowitz’s planned event at St. Louis University calls to attention a larger problem around the country. Pam Geller points out that speakers who have conservative viewpoints or are critical of Islam are being censored at an increasing rate.





Happening Now in America:

Islamic foot-washing basins in airports; Shariah finance being introduced by American banks; college campuses designating Islamic prayer rooms for Muslims only; Islamic compounds practicing Shariah law springing up across America; public schools using our tax dollars to indoctrinate American students into Islam; demands by Muslim parents that their children be provided private prayer rooms in their public schools; Muslim workers demanding special workplace accommodations no other religious person would ask for; and the list goes on...

Mohammad Playing with his Six-year-old Bride to Be

The so-called Prophet Muhammad Married a six-year-old named Aisha and had Sex with the girl by the time she was nine (if not before).  Mohammad ordered the death of two poets who mocked him as well as killed many others.  The Koran is full of hate for non-believers which it equates with "evil-doers."  Islam is not a religion: it is, as it is often practiced in real life, a fanatical brotherhood and hate-filled ideology.  The West continues to ignore the fact that Islam is a clear and present danger to anyone who believes in free speech, an independent judiciary, free press, the right to criticize, satirize, etc., etc.  Self-censorship is now being practiced in Europe and America to appease Muslims.  The more Muslims a country lets in, the more problems it will have.  Sorry if that's not PC but that's the way it works.


"All it takes for evil to triumph is for enough good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

Ibn Warraq:

The cartoons in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten raise the most important question of our times: freedom of expression. Are we in the west going to cave into pressure from societies with a medieval mindset, or are we going to defend our most precious freedom -- freedom of expression, a freedom for which thousands of people sacrificed their lives? A democracy cannot survive long without freedom of expression, the freedom to argue, to dissent, even to insult and offend...Unless, we show some solidarity, unashamed, noisy, public solidarity with the Danish cartoonists, then the forces that are trying to impose on the Free West a totalitarian ideology will have won; the Islamization of Europe will have begun in earnest.

    The Islamization of Europe

    Muslims are rapidly destroying freedom in Europe and have even brought about self-censorship and real censorship in the United States.  But there is one city in Holland where a new reality can be seen with the naked eye, more than anywhere else. Here, entire neighborhoods look as if they have been lifted from the Middle East, here stand the largest mosques in Europe, here parts of sharia law are applied in the courts and theaters, here many of the women go around veiled, here the mayor is a Muslim, the son of an imam.  This city is Rotterdam, Holland's second largest city by population, and the largest port in Europe by cargo volume.  Europeans, especially politicians, will not lift a finger to fight against Islamofascism.  And future generations will pay the price. 

    The hate-filled Quran (Koran) consistently uses offending remarks whenever it mentions non-Muslims. It describes non-Muslims as animals (Q.7: 179, Q.25: 44, Q.47: 12). Then it describes the Jews as donkeys Q. 62:5 then as apes and pigs (Q.2: 65, Q. 5:60, Q. 7:166). To be described as an animal is a bad insult in Arabic culture, but pigs, apes and donkeys are particularly bad.  "Religion of Peace," my ass. 


    Please note, I do not and never would advocate violence against individual Muslims in any community.  For one thing, the guy you beat up with a baseball bat may turn out to have just escaped from some horrible Islamic regime.  Individual violence against Muslims or doing damage to mosques, etc., is just stupid and is also counterproductive as Muslim fanatics will show pictures of that all over the Muslim world to incite people against the West. 

    A good case can be made that Islam is a fanatical brotherhood masquerading as a religion, and, indeed, the adherents of Islam often act that way.   But, as individuals, a Muslim neighbor might possibly be more honest than a Christian neighbor.  It is only that the Muslim will have been brought up in a religion/brotherhood with a medieval mindset that is centuries behind the times and has a penchant for violence, especially against those who criticize the Koran and other aspects of Islam.   Winning the war against Muslim fanatics will take a long time and be hard-fought but it can and will be won.  But we must demand that more and more moderate Muslims join the fight against fanatical Muslims.   We must demand that our leaders absolutely reject any "compromise" on our right to free expression.  Compromising with the fanatics pulls the rug out from the Muslim moderates desperately trying to reform and secularize Islam.  And we must never bow to Muslim demands to curb our hard-won freedom of expression.   And freedom of expression always includes satire and even insulting satire including satire of glorified tribal myths called religion.

    “The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion.  It should transcend a personal god and avoid dogmas and theology.  Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual and a meaningful unity.  Buddhism answers this description.  If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism.” - Albert Einstein
