Returning to Thailand

So I'm finally going to take some time off and return to Thailand in January or February next year. Nothing booked yet but want to know if there is any festivals or events I should plan my trip around. Planning to visit Chiang Mai and BKK and maybe Cambodia. Not interested in bars or beaches just relaxing places and good food. Any advice welcome thank you.

Cancer Research Charity Event

The other day I got a call asking if I could help out with his music festival in aid of Cancer Research in the UK. I dont have to go on about what an important charity this is. Many people have lost someone from Cancer at one time or another myself included so I was more than happy to give a little time to design some flyers with the Charity Colours and provide some acts from my record label. If your in London over this weekend why not come along and hear some great music from world famous DJ

Thai man has Zoo in suitcase From Sun Newspaper

A MAN in Thailand was rumbled trying to smuggle baby leopards, panthers, a bear and monkeys in his luggage. The first-class passenger was nabbed while waiting to check-in for a flight to Dubai at Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi airport.

Number 1 hit

Those of you who know me here know that I have not been on TF a lot as I am busy co running my record label. It's been a hard journey and the rewards have not been financial especially since their is no longer money in music. Today I checked on how our new release was selling and it seems we are doing something right as we have hit the number 1 slot on the disco release charts on Juno. Juno is one of the biggest online music stores in the UK so to be charted at number 1 in its genre and number

Something for a Sunday.

It's a wet miserable day here in London so I put together some music that makes me feel good on a Sunday. What you don't need to know. The track list. Not because anything on here is rare it's all easily accesible I would prefer you just listen and hopefully enjoy the music. What you do need to know. This is not a DJ mix it is a selection of some of my vinyl that I have blended together to share with you. What you need to do, Turn off your facebook, twitter or any other unnecessary distrac

Where have I been!

Well it's been a long time since I done a journal on here. I wont bore any of you with the details but the last year has been a very turbulent journey for me with some devastating events that have changed me I hope for the better. Things are now back on track and I'm saving up for a trip to Thailand hopefully early next year, I hope to take a break up in Chang Mai for a few weeks so in the meantime I want to share some of the more positive stuff the last year has brought me!   Well

New TF

To be honest I am not very impressed with the look of the new TF. I wont just state this I will give a few reasons why!Thailand Friends Logo Font;. This to me is quite a futuristic font, not in keeping with an internet site designed for friendship,  it also feels cold and unwelcoming against a washed out grey/ blue background. The thin borderless column gives the immpression of a shopping site.My profile page makes me look like an item for sale on ebay. I think to be honest it looks like a bad a

Don't put the noodles and the dumplings together in the boat. They'll fight! The noodles are bullies. Poor dumplings.""I haven't put on weight. Your eyes are fat." "Badger tickling: proceed with caution" "I can't control the kittens. Too many whiskers! Too many
