Updates: Burma earthquake, AIDS and social stigmas in Thailand, getting even with cold-calling financial advisors

April 14th, 2011 · No Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve uploaded the site. Recently I secured an eyewitness account of the March earthquake which devastated parts of Burma for The Guardian.

Having lived in Thailand for almost a decade, I’ve had numerous irritating experiences involving financial advisors cold calling me at work. Recently, I discovered that cold calling is against SEC regulations and there’s a very easy way to report the tossers who refuse to take no for an answer. Read more about this in the piece I wrote for here.

In March I had the privilege to moderate the first screening of Living with the Tiger, a documentary about children living with HIV/Aids in Thailand. It’s one of the most empowering and uplifting films I have seen on the matter. But it also packs a mighty punch and drives home the message of how social attitudes toward people infected with the virus need to change. Read the piece at here.
