Where to Buy New Zealand Products in Southern California

I’ve been living overseas for the last 5-6 years now, first travelling through Europe, then living in Thailand, and now based in San Diego, California.  One of the things I miss the most is the small comforts of food and other products from home, especially Meat pies.

Pok Pok – The Best Thai Food Outside of Siam

I first came across Pok Pok while watching Vice Munchies, ironically enough while living in Bangkok, Thailand.

Steve Cafe and Cuisine – Hidden Gem in Rama 8

Sarah and I were planning to go out for dinner last night at The Wine Connection, but ended up deciding against it due to the protest locations, and her class timetable.

The Expats Guide to Beer in Thailand

I’ve been living in Thailand for over a year and enjoy the odd beer, and by odd I mean the odder the better. Most tourists and expats only encounter the more well known brews in Thailand, and blog posts on Thai beer tend to ignore many of the interesting beers available in Thailand if you …
