So this was my first full week as a freelancer, and it has felt a little strange I must confess not having my usual 8.30am-6pm working week, although I have been trying to stick to that at home. Things have been a little bit tricky as it turns out one of my cats now also fancies himself as a writer, but sadly only likes to work when I do, believing that my computer...

One of the great things about living in Thailand is the availability of the most amazing seafood, for a fraction of the price I would pay in the UK. I have long been a fan of prawns and salmon, but since moving to Bangkok, I have become much more adventurous with the dishes I will try and when I am out I will often now order tilapia, blue water crab, lobster claws...

So my first week as a freelancer has been a little chaotic – the wifi in KL was not great so I couldn’t work much, but I still had a lot of fun, especially as I got to meet up with a friend of one of my now best friends who I got to know through twitter when I was there So this is my week:   Apologies for the slight delay in posting –...

So as I blogged on Friday, this week marked a very big change in my life, making the move from full time employment to full time self employed free lance. In other news, I also hung out with Thai celebs….: ...

Today was my last day at work, and I have been well and truly spoilt. From this amazing homemade card: To Cake: To lunch out: To presents: Which couldn’t be more meaningful – they were so excited about the Dusty and Socks cushion they found for me, and the necklace means relations and friendship and had this message attached to it “Are you...

My friends and I have started a tradition when it is one of our birthdays we treat ourselves and go for a meal at one of Bangkok’s more upmarket restaurants. Located on soi 31, the food at Appia is just simply divine. There is no other way to describe it. Owner and chef, Paolo, the son of a butcher grew up eating rustic home cooked meals, a philosophy he was...

What a week it has been – so many people came out to help me celebrate my birthday on Wednesday which was so much fun – turns out turning 21 isn’t so bad after all Let’s just hope it is not all down hill from here: ...

One of the things I was most excited about when I knew I was moving to Thailand was that I was finally going to be able to visit all of the exciting places in Asia I had read about – to date, I’ve enjoyed exploring Singapore, Vientiane, and only last week had an amazing 36 hours in Hong Kong. Thailand is awesome too – I had so much fun on my recent...

Another week of sensible Anna staying in and working each night has been rewarded today with early birthday celebrations – brunch at Appia with my friends and then more drinks at Wine Connection where we were forced to stay for a second bottle of Prosecco as the heavens opened – oh the trauma of rainy season in Bangkok! Today has been so much fun –...

I can’t believe that I have been living here for two years now! It doesn’t seem like yesterday that I was writing a similar blog celebrating my first year of being an expat – how time flies!A lot happened in my first year here, but even more has happened in the second. This time last year, I didn’t know any of my now closest friends in Bangkok,...
