    Hi All

    Was sitting in the Aussie pub with Deano the other day and got to talking about Nicke's old forum, LiL's forum, and this one. I didn't think I had registered for this one but came here today to register and realized I actually had sometime months ago, just never posted. Been meaning to for a while but I am not as active these days on SEA forums.

    For those who don't know me I am a 36 year old Californian who lived in Thailand for a spell back about 4 years ago. Traveled around SEA a bit. Used to hang on Nicke's forum. Now live back in California with my Thai wife, step daughter, and another one on the way. Don't get out to SEA too much anymore on account of the whole family/work thing. I travel regularly to China and Taiwan for work. I work in semiconductors, CMOS image sensors in particular. Have recently picked up a photography hobby.

    Currently in Kamala for a week or so for a visit. Anyway, bout time I got in a little activity here. Looking forward to looking around the forum.

    Welcome to the forum kuhio.
    I was one of many who followed your story of getting your wife and daughter in to the USA.... Loads of respect for the effort that you put in and for never giving up. Despite what seemed to be roadblocks at every turn.
    Good to have you here....

    Welcome(welcome back) to the board. By the sounds of things you have a few stories to tell. Looking forward to your posts.

    Cheers

    Welcome Kuhio, I remember your handle but don't recall your story, so for me and others here it would be good if you get the time, to refresh/retell some of your experience's.

    Congrats on the new bub to come

    Hiya Brian. I'm sorry we managed to miss each other. It would have been great to catch up and to even have you as a neighbour!

    Congratulations on your new leuk krung on the way. When is the baby due?

    WTTB Brian. Your long adventure into Fortress America was an epic. Hope all goes well with Nok's pregnancy.

    Hello/welcome Kuhio - I recall you posting good underwater pics from off Kata I think they were?, snorkeling, and think we had discussions on the use of lycra rash suits for jellyfish, and waterproof cases for camera too maybe on the Phuket forum - about 2009
    I was Genghis back in those days
    Still taking underwater pics?
    cheers

    Welcome Brian, long time no see .... 'twas an IFAWAS dinner at that Gluay/Banana restaurant in Patong where we met.
    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!
