New Book Launched By Stu Lloyd – BAMBOOZLED: The Lighter Side Of Expat Life In Asia



Stu Lloyd has dropped his latest book, a massive collection of colourful stories contributed by expats from Pakistan to Papua New Guinea and everywhere in between.

“It’s called BAMBOOZLED – the Lighter Side of expat Life in Asia,” says the Zimbabwe-born Australian who lives in Thailand. “It’s a project I’ve been sitting on for a while and I thought what better time than now to bring people a laugh or two hundred. So we’ve rushed it out on e-book first for an easy, contactless experience.”

The stories are divided up by chapters which include: Language problems and miscommunication

Airport and flying
Café, restaurant and pubs
Bribery, corruption and conmen
Drivers and maids
Golf and sport
Embassy and Diplomatic
Holidays, hotel and travel
Houses, flatmates and landlords
Doctors, nurses, hospitals … and faith healers
Office and work
Retail and shopping experiences, and much more.


Bamboozled captures the simultaneous fun and frustrations of living and working in Asia.

“Many of these are what I call the bamboozling moments,” says Lloyd. “Part mystifying, part perplexing, part head-scratching. Like, what just happened there? But ultimately funny stuff to look back on.”

Lloyd has been collecting stories in the line of duty since he arrived in Hong Kong “as a child slave” in 1987, and has since lived and worked in Singapore, China and Thailand. “Big shout-out to our contributors — these stories are our shared collected experience as foreigners. Many of us have experienced these situations ourselves, or can easily picture ourselves in them — for better or worse, because some of them are quite edgy.”

Bamboozled is corporate friendly and family-friendly, reflecting the new breed of expat, reflected in the range of contributors, both Western and Asian, male and female.

Stu Lloyd has been called ‘the perfect storyteller’ by The Telegraph, UK, on the back of his body of work which covers military history, colonial history, and travel. His 11 books have sold over 100,000 copies and his features have appeared everywhere from Sydney Morning Herald, South China Morning Post to National Geographic Traveler magazine.
