This has been long overdue, but I finally got a fire under my butt to update it. It felt warm and inviting.
We had a wonderful year in the USA. There isn't much I would have changed about the last year, which is always a good thing to report. We lived about 6 months in upstate New York, and about 6 months in Boston. The first 3 months in each area were great. We loved the new life, new people, and the new opportunities that came with those things. The last 3 months rated from boring to bad. I'l
It's been a long few days, I'm exhausted, but I feel like the happiest man alive. My son, Aiden Amarin Kawada, was born on July 30th weighing 3.1 kilos. He is happy and healthy, and Jeab is doing well too.
He came 3 weeks early, which was a bit worrisome. However, he was at a good weight, healthy, and didn't need any support besides the usual love and care (of which he is getting plenty). Jasmine also arrived early.
Jasmine has been great throughout this all. All four of us have been stayin
He goes by the name Surendra Singh, sometimes he's on Freelancer.com, and he's a scammer. He uses the following two email addresses.
Basically, he set up a magento site for me, but only gave me the free pirated version, which ended up crashing. After I figured it out, he was no where to be found.
This is up here in hopes that people google his name before doing business with him, and find out that he's a very naughty man. No comments
Whenever I see young talent like this, I always think of my daughter.
Anyway, this girl is amazing. Even her (tiny) mistakes are perfect because they came from her simply being new on the big stage. Enjoy.
Having some nice weather to come back to has been a big help. Jeab and I have spent a lot of time looking for a new place to live, and we found a great place right outside of Boston. It reminds us a lot of Centre Point in Thailand, but much bigger. There are about 20 buildings, tennis courts, fitness centers, pools, pool tables, movie theaters...all within the community. There is also a Hooters 1 mile away.
We've also been busy going to different restaurants, symphonies, petting zoos, and plent
Itâ€™s strange to be back here in Thailand. Iâ€™m not sure how I feel about it yet. This isnâ€™t going to be an â€œI love Thailandâ€ journal. This is just going to be me complaining, because thatâ€™s what I do well. Immediately when I got into BKK, we all got food poisoning. Iâ€™m living in the second floor of my house, which is packed with furniture that we had on the ground and 3rd floors. We have tenants on the ground and 3rd floors now. Luckily, they have turned out to be pretty cool, even
The New Year rang in for us quietly. The girls were asleep in their beds, and I was watching the ball drop on TV here in New York. Honestly, it was a lonely point. I can't remember a New Year passing being completely alone since my bed time was 11:00 PM (even then I can't remember it).
I'm not one of those guys who will say it's not a special day just because the world has told us it's a special day. I do think NYE is and should be a big day for most people. Everyone needs a point of referenc
David and Jane just came back from Bangkok a few days ago and immediately had their wedding reception in the USA. They met via a TF virtual kiss and PM (TFH sent to janejane first)...and now we are just waiting for babies to start poppin out.
Congrats to my good friends. Click to see the saalide show.
So Iâ€™ve been back in the states for 3 months. Honestly, it feels as if Iâ€™ve been back for at least a year already. Against my own selfish wishes, I came here mostly for Jasmine. As strong as I know I am, it hasnâ€™t been easy. On the same note, it hasnâ€™t been that hard. My family and close friends are just a few hours away, and they have really helped during this huge transition.
Once I knew that I was returning here for sure, I began mentally preparing both Jeab and myself as much as I
I just wanted to send out a big congrats to Bill and Ked as they just tied the knot.
When they first started dating, I had no faith in it working out. I think Bill made it a point to prove me wrong, and look at them today! I must admit that I was very wrong, and they have turned out to be a great couple. Su su!
Congrats to the newlyweds. Nothing but the best for you two! See you in the USA soon. :cool:

I feel as though each journal leads its way into the next. This journal, however, feels as if all â€œLittle Feetâ€ posts have led up to this post. From the first post, through our hospital trips, to her first birthday and so onâ€¦Weâ€™re hereâ€¦back in the United States to give her the best possible opportunities that we have available to us.
Going back to the weeks leading up to our departure, I was trying my best to prepare myself for the gigantic change of Thailand to the USA, city life to
