Made in Thailand – An Excerpt

thaiThere was once a beautiful young woman named Mae Nak whose love for her husband, Tid Mak, was undying. One day, while her husband was away at war, she died giving birth to their baby who did not survive either. Due to her undying love for her husband, Mae Nak and the baby returned to the living world as spirits. Everyone in the village has learned of their deaths, but when Mae Nak’s husband returns home from the battlefield he is greeted by his loving wife and their newborn child, unaware that they are spirits. The villagers try to warn him but he doesn’t want to believe them. One night the ghost of Mae Nak is preparing dinner for her husband when she suddenly drops a lime and it falls through a gap in the wooden floorboards. Back in those days, the houses were built a short distance off the ground. Tid Mak watches Mae Nak from the outside of the house as she stretches an elongated, ghostly arm through the long gap to the ground and reaches for the lime. He was aware that no human could reach that far and it was then that he realised the villagers were telling the truth. He runs from the house in terror to a nearby temple to seek refuge where the ghost of Mae Nak is unable to enter. Mae Nak becomes angry and takes out her frustration by terrorising the villagers. There are a few versions of how the story ends. In one, Mae Nak and her baby’s spirit are believed to be confined in a piece of bone from her exhumed forehead and bound into a wristband worn by a monk. In another version, a monk convinces Mae Nak that she will be reunited with her husband in another life at which point Mae Nak, along with the baby, is believed to have voluntarily moved on.

The Positivity Project – Switch your Goals Mindset

Highlighting moments when you rocked the hell out of 2016 instantly lifts your spirits, says hypnotherapist Chloe Brotheridge. Scroll through your photos and choose three in which you felt happy, or proud of yourself. Then, when you think of the year ahead, instead of setting future goals, say or write them in the present tense: “I am getting fitter,” or, “I am working on that promotion.” This sends a powerful, positive message to your subconscious to go forward and make them real.

My ‘baby’, PUIYIN W.L. PUBLISHING®, finally launched in late 2016. It took me 5 years to build this ‘baby’, and it was all worth it.

Made in Thailand – An Excerpt

thai

I believe Bangkok traffic is something everyone should experience at least once in their life and an item to be added to the bucket list. Bangkok traffic defines the real definition of ‘traffic jam’. You could get stuck in it and not move for many long hours. The worst time was when it rained, especially during the rainy season when there is flooding. Flooding and traffic put together, especially in Bangkok, is a very bad combination. Bangkok traffic is so bad I can only compare it with joining every single vehicle into one single unit until it is bigger than the size of the city itself. It does make you wonder where all the vehicles come from. It is like a traffic apocalypse. 

9. THE POSITIVITY PROJECT – TAKE THE 21-DAY GRATITUDE CHALLENGE (DAY 3)

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 3 – Bloggers, readers and fans

Today, I am thankful for having amazing bloggers, readers and fans in my life, because without them, my books would not be known. The last time I checked the sales for the latest book/autobiography Made in Thailand, it had surpassed my expectation, all thanks to the bloggers, readers and fans.

As a writer/author, it is always important to remember to stay humble, no matter how big of a star we may become, because at the end of the day, the bloggers, readers and fans are the main people who will be buying the books and spreading the word. They are the ones doing the main ‘marketing’.

Revamp

cropped-mothers-day.jpg

Hi all,

For those of you who have been following my blog, there has been a MAJOR revamp to the site, which included the name being changed from PY LAB to my pen name Puiyin W.L.

At first, I didn’t have plans on revamping the blog. But then I had seconds thoughts. I am constantly revamping and re-styling my publishing website, so why not the blog? Sometimes change is good, right? Do let me know what you think. I will be back on Friday with a brand new post. It has been a while and it’s time to bring the mojo back.

Much love always,

PY LAB aka Puiyin W.L.
