Bangkok stole my curls

What's a girl got to do to keep her hair looking nice in this city?

Bangkok stole my curls. The humidity equals frizz and yes, there's lots of lotions, potions, bottles and tubes which promise sleek hair but they all lie.

Confessions of a new teacher

What I've learned in the first five months

I'm Karisa and I couldn't be more of a cliché: a blonde, American, recent college grad who decided to go teach in a foreign country! Don't be too impressed with me; I'm hardly unique in this expedition to teach English abroad.

Teacher dress codes


Don't waste your money buying pants. Maybe the school you work at will not be as strict with this policy, but unless you have overwhelming feelings about this topic, buy skirts and dresses to be on the safe side.

Getting hitched in the Land of Smiles

Continuing the adventure but as a married teacher

Hi, I am Elizabeth (Miss Ellie if you are one of my 5 year old students) and I am a homeroom teacher at an International school in Nonthaburi. I moved here from South Korea where I lived and taught for a year

Looking good in the classroom

What's the ideal hairstyle for a female foreign teacher?

I am coming to Thailand at the end of the year and would be grateful if you could advise me as to what's appropriate and inappropriate in terms of women's hairstyles (in relation to teaching posts).

Calling all female teachers!

Bangkok Phil needs your help.
