Record one thing you’re grateful for (flatmates with the same shoe size, a FaceTime chat with your mum, that free coffee in Pret – it’s all relative) each day for three weeks. Research says it can improve your mood, sleep and energy.
DAY 4 – Made in Thailand Sequel
Once again, I would like to thank those who have purchased and supported Made in Thailand, and because of how well it is doing, I have decided to bring out a sequel, where the autobiography will have a broader focus on my life in 90’s Bangkok and much more. It is already in the works alongside the sequel to Who We Were. The sequel to Made in Thailand would not have come to plan if it wasn’t for the supportive bloggers, readers and fans. I thank you all, and hope that we can make the sequel an even better success.
I am here to ask for your (my fellow bloggers’) opinion. What do you think about the idea of me coming up with a book based on PY Lab blog? Don’t get me wrong, PY Lab will continue to be a blog. As many of you would know by now that I have recently launched my own publishing house. And unlike most publishers, I don’t want to have a wall up where readers, and the rest of the world, see me as another publisher. I want to bring down the wall and let the world in. I want others to see what kind of a publisher I am, and who is behind the publisher. I would also like to tell my journey from how I had come up with the idea of setting up my own publishing house, and how I also have PY Lab to thank for it.
Anyways, I would love to hear from you lot. You know how to get back to me 🙂
Much love always,
My deepest thoughts and prayers to those affected. Stay strong. The rest of the world is right by your side.
Good news. The publishing company is well under way. I am trademarking the name and logo, and I have just passed the first HUGE step. Now, it’s the waiting game. Under UK law, every new company needs to have its name/logo in the Trademark Journal for two months for anyone/company to object. I have until mid December, before Christmas. Therefore, once again, I have to delay the launch. Meantime, work on the first soon-to-be published book under the company is also underway. There have been so many sleepless nights for the last couple of months. But it’s all going to be so bloody worth it. I haven’t forgotten you all. Aside from the company, I also have news regarding my two previous books.
There will be a new re-write of ‘A Chinese Christmas Carol’. Don’t get me wrong. The book will still be available to buy. Considering many of you bought the book, I would not want to make any changes to the original. Instead, a similar, but slightly different story will be told. I am grateful for those who have bought it. It will always be the original background story. However, I want to made a saga or a series out of it. For those who have read it will know that there are questions to be answered. And those questions will be answered in the saga/series.
Unfortunately, ‘Family Sorrow’ will be taken down once the company is launched. Instead, it will also be re-written and be part of ‘A Chinese Christmas Carol’ saga/series. For those who have bought it, thank you, and always remember it will always be the original background story.
All these changes are due to the fact that as a will-be-soon company, I want to start fresh with the books. But there are still stories regarding characters from both books to tell that I cannot just not write about. Which is why I want to start fresh, and yet, hold on to parts of the old.
I hope many of you will support me on this new exciting journey. Because without readers, writers, bloggers, and supporters like you out there, there will be no means for books to be written. Meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions regarding the changes. I will do my best to answer them.
Love you all,
To Bangkok, my childhood land, my home. Please stay strong. I, amongst many, will continue to return home to you, and that nothing will stop us. I love you, Bangkok.
Hello all. Once again, I do apologize for my long absence. However, I do have a good reason. During my absence, I have been researching, planning, and working (which I still am) on my new and very own up-and-coming publishing house which I will officially be launching early next year (date to be confirm). I have always wanted to set up my own publishing house, but I never got to find the right time, or the right moment, to make it happen……..until recently. I am aware that I have promised my follow readers and followers that I would publish two of my books this year, a love story and the first book of my book series. So instead, the two books will be published under my publishing house, with the love story as the first going-to-be published book. I do apologize for all the sudden changes and broken promises. This time, I will make sure that the launch date is accurate before letting you all know. Meanwhile, I will also be catching up on my posting/blogging.
