    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    Just did flight of the gibbon zip-lining again this morning, the Chiang-mai one with an 800 meter zip-line and one where your harness is clipped at the back, you throw yourself off the platform and zip across a valley to catch a net on the other side the photographer was a pinay she came here to work and ended up marrying a Thai,met quite a few PI nationals since we arrived.

    Saw two Pinoy/Pinay homosexual male prostitutes in Pattaya's walking street last night. They are a long way from home seeking clients

    Well, it's a known Pinoy fact, despite rocketing HIV statistics in the PI, that wearing condoms is like eating candy still in the wrapper

    Good time to pass. The Sayyaf are looking for staff.

    So that's the course you've been on huh?

    Thought flying would have been involved somewhere in all honesty although a course in terrorism and one in handling world money did cross my mind.

    Flying yes, but surely you mean counter-terrorism, and I have a hard enough job handling my own few pennies never mind world cash

    Strange you mention that, but I had dinner the other week with a Brit who showed me footage of him jumping off Pattaya's highest new build. And met a Brit living out here the other day who owns a wing suit and has regular holidays to Italy to jump off cliffs. My mind is set on doing this however (go to 2.20 when it starts getting interesting).......
