A single man; man without a girlfriend

“I’ve had people come into my life, but they’ve always just come and gone.
There’s no one in my heart now.
No matter how much of my love I give to someone.
What happens is always the same as before
I always end up just being hurt.
I must be so unlucky, it’s like I’ve been cursed to always end up disappointed when I meet someone.
Please let it be you who will release me from this curse, I’m desperate to find love.
I want to be someone’s, I want to have someone be mine.
Even to have someone possess this heart of mine.
I will keep on giving my love, I will take care of you well.
If you can stop me having to endure being someone like this.
A man without a girlfriend.
Maybe I’ve been very unhappy in the past, but I don’t think I did anything wrong.
I’m ready to love and not scared of being hurt again.
Because I’m confident in the things I say and the things I do.
they are always sincere…but
I must be so unlucky, it’s like I’ve been cursed to always end up disappointed when I meet someone.
Please let it be you who will release me from this curse, I’m desperate to find love.
I want to be someone’s, I want to have someone be mine.
Even to have someone possess this heart of mine.
I will keep on giving my love, I will take care of you well.
If you can stop me having to endure being someone like this.
A man without a girlfriend.
I must be so unlucky, it’s like I’ve been cursed to always end up disappointed when I meet someone.

Oh my god, this Thai pop song is a super classic. It is a Thongchai McIntyre’s song. I have not listened to it for years. It is still good lyrically. If you are still single (โสด), this song suits you pretty well and you should get the t-shirt like the ones they are wearing in the music video to display your hopelessness in love. I would love to get one myself, but unfortunately, I do not think the โสด t-shirt will be appropriate for my circumstances, if you know what I mean.

Thanks to the person who posted this Youtube video with the English translation of the song.

Exhibitionism and a voyeuristic game

The security guard at the hotel where I spent my last holiday took a rather unusual interest in me. The guy spent almost every afternoon ogling me. He kept looking into the villa grounds. Initially I did not pay much attention to him; I simply ignored his clandestine observation. Later, during my two weeks holiday, I came to notice him appearing over the fence on almost a daily basis. The reason may have had something to do with the fact that he might never have seen a Thai person dressed so provocatively in dinky swimwear like I was throughout my stay at the hotel. For my part, I did not intend to show off my body to anybody and he should not have been looking into the premises; it was a private area. However I did not care about what he was trying to achieve by looking at me. His gaze did not unsettle me, nor did I take offence at his constant staring.

A few days before I departed for Bangkok, this guy decided to be more open with his prurience. When he walked past the villa, he would take a few moments to scan in my direction. Again he would look over the fence at the same spot like he had been doing for several days. He even waved at me a couple of times. I guess it was a sign of appreciation for what he had seen. Once I waved back at him politely. I will never know the purpose of his leering at me. A homosexual tendency or just simply curiosity, maybe? I assume the guy must have savoured the moment. He kept eyeing me and saw more than he had bargained for, he truly did!

I am so free baby!

Finally, I have finished revising my studies. Hooray!!! From today on, I will be doing nothing this month until going away for a holiday. I am so pleased with myself that I have managed to attain my goal in reasonable time. Living without chores is simply a blessing. I have nothing much to do now except for indulging myself with movies and devouring good books provided that I have enough time. I am so excited that I am going to get away from the longest winter I have ever experienced in the UK. I’ve loved seeing the snow, but I think I have had enough of the ongoing cold temperature. It makes me unwell. Not long now until I will be lying around under the scorching sun in my skimpy swimwear. When that time arrives, I will not care about anything at all. I just cannot wait for that.

I am feeling in love again

This is my kind of movie. Just looking at the trailer of this film, I cannot help feeling in love with ‘A Single Man’. I keep coming back to this clip and savouring  every second of it. The movie looks pretty stylistic and delicate. It turns me on aesthetically. The story itself sounds touching. Imagine you lost someone whom you love dearly; what would you do? It would be extremely tough for anybody to go on living without him or her. If I had to experience the same situation as the protagonist, I would be unable to breathe properly. I might be choked with emotions and those who are reading this entry might suffocate from nausea!

“Waking up begins with sayin ‘am’ and ‘now’. For the past eight months, waking up has actually hurt. (Sigh) Cold realistation that I’m still here slowly sets in. I was never terribly fond of waking up. I was never one to jump out of bed and greet the day with a smile like Jim was. I used to want to punch him sometimes in the morning, he was so happy. I always used to tell him that only fools greet the day with a smile, that only fools could possibly escape the simple truth, that now isn’t simply now. It’s a cold reminder; one day later than yesterday, one year later than last year, and that sooner or later – it will come. He used to laugh at me and then give me a kiss on the cheek.” Transcribed from “A Single Man” the movie.

Top 10 most romantic hotel bedrooms

I am slightly surprised that this Thai hotel, MUTHI MAYA, has been chosen to be one of the top ten  sexiest hotel bedrooms by boutique and luxury hotel specialists Mr & Mrs Smith.

“If calm and tranquility are your favorite romantic escape partners, you won’t find better bedfellows anywhere other than at Muthi Maya. Overlooking the UNESCO-protected Khao Yai wildlife park with a breathtaking backdrop of mist-wreathed mountains, this supremely serene resort provides stress-melting views and an atmosphere so relaxed you’ll stay supine for days. Guests stay in one of several spectacular private villas, each with its own infinity pool, day-bed-strewn decking, kitchenette and 24-hour butler service.”   Source: Reuters

I used to go to Khao Yai from time to time while I was living in Korat. I must admit that I quite enjoy the scenic beauty of the natural surroundings. It is a great place for those who want to escape the chaotic life of a big city like Bangkok.
