The temple that caused both countries to shoot at each other? OP, you might feel like home, there's a "Hong Kong Garden" in Sisaket.

There's a high possibility that Khun Peter ran out of livin' monkey brain, but I'm certain that he'll stock up soon. Can't make that up, can you?

Sure I can, but I need to check if it is a "Hong Kong Garden" or "Farang-used-to-live-in-Hong-Kong Garden", usually western guys in HK they don't really eat HK local food...

Jenny & Mrs. Jenny might like to turn up on Valentines night as Peter has, (in my opinion) one of the best guitar players/singers in Sisaket performing there that night.

Time to lift the magic. Jenny was my ex, my best friend and somebody I'm really missing a lot. She passed away last year, in 2017. Sad was that I couldn't even say goodbye to her.

 

But thanks for the good news, will be there. Who's playing??. I hope that isn't too off topic, OP might want to join in with his Missus?

No that's fine, and not so off topic.

The Thai guys name is Tripob and he plays in The Dude Bar weekly between Thursdays & Sunday’s. He plays a mean slide guitar and sings a vast array of mostly western songs. Highly recommended.

I own HKGdn. I lived in HK for 10 yrs, working for Next Media and was part of the team who set up Apple Daily Newspaper. I enjoyed HK very much (especially the food) and still have family and friends there. My wife is a fluent Cantonese speaker and a good Cantonese cook. In my view HK is one of the world's greatest cities and puts conurbations such as Bkk to shame. In Ssk I have various successful farming enterprises as well as the restaurant. Both my wife and I have PR in HK.

If you don't mind, I have a few questions...just out of curiosity...

 

How can you both enjoy living in a place like Hong Kong and in a place like Sisaket, which are so different?

 

Then, could you elaborate a little bit on your farming activities?

It is maybe the first time I hear someone, especially a foreigner and especially in Isaan, talking about "successful" farming.

Of course, it all depends on what you call "farming", hence my question.

 

I have had many contacts with farmers and communities of farmers, both Thai and foreigners, all over the country.

 

From what I learned from all of them, it appears that "basic" farming (growing a crop and selling it as it is) doesn't generate profits, at least meaningful ones, and often leads to losses, notably when the weather doesn't cooperate.

 

For this reason, most of them are turning to making and selling products with some added value...a simple example would be to sell jam rather than the fruits themselves...

 

Asoke Community, which I mentioned earlier, is exactly doing that, and so are others in Chachaengsao, Chiang Mai and other places.

It is easy to find as long as you are on the right road, the 221.

 

From the road 24, you turn left or right (depending on where you come from) to join road 221 in direction to Kantharalak city.

 

Then you drive about 10km and you will find the main entrance to the community on the right side...there is a big sign...along with the supermarket where they sell parts of their products.

If you drive 10km along Hwy 221* from Hwy 24 in the direction of Kantharalak you arrive at Kantharalak's main landmark, the white shrine clos to the middle of Kantharalak town. If you drive 10km on 221 from Hwy 24 in the other direction you pass thru my Thai wife's family village (of Santisuk) and arrive at to our house. I drive that 20km from my house to Kantharalak on 221 at least every other day and have done for 10 years.

 

You got me beat Brunoelm. Have never seen that Asoke community or a big sign (must be in Thai, but surely not 10km south of 24 on the 221 unless inside Kantharalak town). Thought I knew every inch of that journey and can't picture where it could be. Bergen's wife has family closely connected with the big Asoke community along the Mun river east of Ubon/Warin - fascinating village btw - and he's never mentioned the Kantharalak community to me even though we meet up regularly, including at my place and Kantharalak.

 

This is not meant to be a 'you don't know what you're talking about' kind of post - I'm genuinely intrigued to know more!! Would probably be a willing customer.

 

*  For the benefit of Awa Shuen, that's the main highway between Kantharalak town and Sisaket town

The Asoke community is about half way down the 221 from the 24 to Kantharalak. Turn right at the "gated" entrance to Ban Kratchang Yai, and the community is on your right hand side after a couple hundred meters.
