For a few months now, the Hope Fair has extended its opening hours from 11am to 8pm, to allow the working peeps to join and relax after their day at the office. A long awaiting extension which has been welcomed by the public during the last edition in November.

Drinks and nibbles are available to appreciate meeting and mingling with the international community of Bangkok, chatting about the latest news in town and discover how we can all be part of one community, with many innovations and traditions to improve our lifestyle, health, happiness and footprint.

The Hope Fair is also socially engaged as all exhibitors donate to the kids of the slums of Klong Toey under the care of the Mercy Centre. All together, they have raised 695800 THB since the creation of the fair in 2014.

You may also clean your house following the KonMari method, and bring to the fair your unwanted clothes, shoes, household products, kids games, or anything else that can be used again by someone else, as the Mercy Centre will be collecting your donations.

Come and discover Bangkok circular economy and finally feel good about your shopping!

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

Published

on

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

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.
