Monkey Business In Thailand
Monkey Business In Thailand
by Peter Jaggs
Come to Thailand and meet a sexy Isaan girl, fall in love and build a small house for less than the price of a second-hand car in the peaceful serenity of the Thai countryside and live happily ever after, far away from the hassles and headaches of modern urban life. Sounds like a dream come true, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, things don’t always turn out as planned. Monkey Business in Thailand tells the true story of what really happened when a Pattaya old-hand becomes disillusioned with the changes his favorite city has gone through during the past quarter of a century and succumbs to the charms of a determined young bar-girl, then attempts to do what many visitors to Thailand have contemplated.
A must-read for anyone who is considering travelling or living in up-country Thailand, Peter Jaggs brings to life a host of unforgettable characters from the neon-lit backstreets of Pattaya to the dirt-roads and rice-fields of a rustic village in Sri Saket.This book also opens up a treasure chest of folk-lore tales and insights into rural Thailand, as well as providing a fascinating look at some of the bird and animal life of the area.
Monkey Business in Thailand moves from the shameless to the subtle in the wink of a bar-girl’s eye and provides the reader with a humorous and panoramic portrait of a foreigner living amongst the Isaan people and countryside. Unlike the old days, when a crowbar at least was needed to pry most male visitors away from Pattaya, in recent times it appears that more and more men are actually listening to their Thai girlfriends when they are urged to consider moving away from the ever-increasing pace of Thailand’s busiest tourist resort to a quiet haven deep in the Thai provinces. Of course, there are those that have already made the change; some with a measure of success and others, like the author of this book, with complete, spectacular failure.
About The Author :-
Peter Jaggs is from Essex in England and has spent the best part of the past twenty five years in Thailand since he was in his early twenties and has visited every province in the country.
Peter has always believed that real work is a necessary evil and should only be undertaken when funds are required for the extended bouts of bar-hopping, fishing and hanging out on beaches he much prefers.
However, he does enjoy writing about his beloved second home and has had articles, stories and poems published in several newspapers and magazines.
Although Peter loves women - especially of the Thai variety - he is not married because he feels that a wife would be as much of a hindrance to his freedom and irresponsible lifestyle as a regular job. Besides this, no female on God’s earth could put up with him for any length of time apart from his mother.
Peter is currently based between Devon, England and Pattaya City and spends an equal amount of time in each of his two homes with frequent excursions to other favourite venues in Asia.
Peter also wrote the first ever book in the English language published on freshwater fishing in Thailand.
