    New...... Not exactly

    Heys Ladies and Gents. I am not exactly new to the forum but have been absent for a long period of time.
    As many were aware, I was married to a Thai lady who also mothered my Child. We have since separated and she used the Australian courts to take my son from me. It did hit me very hard but had to move on or the worst could have happened.
    A lot more has happened between now and then but here is an update of my current situatio.
    I currently living in Pattaya, managing Kawaii Bar on Soi 6. I have been living here for nearly 9 months and loving every bit of it. I still keep in touch with some of the guys from here, but see there are many new also.

    Hope all is well

    Welcome back Gary. Hope you stay this time.. 55

    One thing I always wonder... how hard is it to stay healthy when running a bar in Pattaya? Can you see yourself burning out?
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    It is very difficult to stay healthy running a bar. My job is to drink, and I drink a lot now.... 6 days a week, 10 hours a day. I have gained a bit of weight and now started to loose it again. I love the job but it is not for the long term. It was just what I needed. A fresh start in the place I love.

    Yes good old PI, many memories from that forum. As mentioned in another thread. I am working for Nightwish Group and I have been using PA forum a bit for the bar.
    Always happy to see any one for a drink and a catch up

    Welcome back mate. Sorry to hear about your son.

    Glad you've found something exciting to do for the time being. Vag still overseeing the bars? I missed him the last time I was there back in May.

    I am lucky that since I moved to Pattaya the ex will let my parents look after my sone one weekend a fortnight. On those weekends I get a video call and get to see what his mother is teaching him about me... He came to Thailand a couple months a go and the ex still would not let me see him. Thats life, and I will never give up on him.

    Yeah Vag is still the General Manager (aka, my boss) he has taught me so much and good to work for.

    Thanks mate. I am told I am doing a good job (and I have seen many fail in my time here) I can talk and not an aggressive drunk so they are important things.

    I am on a 12 month ED visa. Had to do a horrible Visa run to Laos.... I am thankful thats only once a year

    Glad you are back, Gary. I am sorry to hear your problems getting to see your son. Women can be vindictive bitches and they use their children as weapons during a breakup. They do their children a disfavour when denying access... unless of course... the man is a real abusive asshole and poses a threat to the child or children. Obviously, that is not like you. Children NEED to know that BOTH parents love them, otherwise they get screwed up.

    I think I started here just as you were leaving. We could use some new (old) blood. Good to see you back.
    Never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. M.T.

    Before I became a member on here, I red up to the open side of the forum...
    And it was your posts that determined the vibe of openness and acceptance for me..
    Including your wedding pic's etc.

    When I did become a member there was not much activity from your side, except from some pic's of your son..
    At least I considered that as living the dream, happy life, perfect harmony or something like that..

    Very sorry to hear your Thai dream came to an end, even more sorry your Aussie courts have robbed you from your role as a father...
    Not sure managing a bar in soi 6 is equaling to living the Thai dream, but it beats being stuck in the past!

    Take care and good luck!
