About Me

I get a kick out of watching concrete dry. Observing the construction of bridges, tunnels, High-Rises or just normal villas is of enormous interest to me. At the moment Wong Amat Tower is very exciting to watch as you can get extremely close, bordering on dangerously close to the construction site. There is a small path leading to the beach with fences on both sides right next to the construction site. Spending some time there is recommended.

“I have found that if you love life, life will love you back” by Arthur Rubinstein.

“The future will always arrive on a path that is not for man to know in advance”, by yours truly.

You can be your own best friend or your own worst enemy – the choice is yours!

In life in general, you must be confident in what you do whilst at the same time be aware that you might not be quite as good as you think you are, therefore you must work constantly to improve yourself.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quote: – Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one’s thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.

A good memory is only useful if what you have memorized can help you connect the dots and find the solution to a problem.

An old german lady, Anne Marie Jessen, told me I need to learn the german word ‘demut’.

The sad one: If you know people by the company they keep, it may be best not knowing anybody at all.

Fast-followers learn from the first-mover by looking at the arrows in his back – then do all to avoid them.

They will not like me because I am a nice and friendly guy. They will like me because I can get the job done.

A story about People, Money and Property Bubbles


To Dr Iain Corness

I have never met Dr Iain Corness, only seen him on local TV. Actually I have seen him once, some years ago strolling around in Carrefour. Somehow, I never see any of these so called celebreties that live in Pattaya even though the city is so small and I am out every day. 18 November is his birthday and he is now a 71 years old celebrity. I am not writing this because he is famous, I am writing this because he is probably the funniest person living in Pattaya. There is nothing better than having a good laugh and I can thank the good Doctor for being a regular supplier in that area. On the Doc and Jock Show featuring Paul Strachan and Dr. Iain it is clear who holds the upper hand. Happy birthday Dr Iain and may you entertain me for many a year to come.

18 December 2015

I have written about failed projects earlier
It is ironic that I would end up as one myself
Plan A didn’t work
There never was a plan B
This is the end of the road for me
And the future?
Well, there is no plan B

The time has come
I guess it wasn’t meant to be
What once was, is no more
Interpret that as you will
Hasta la vista, baby
