We are here as a family to share our "Thailand Lifestyle" through blog articles, videos and images that depict our life in Thailand.
My name is Kenneth Weaver and I am an American expat living in Thailand together with my wife (Natthanan) and our daughter (Plammy). Through this site we share our Thailand Family Lifestyle and will hopefully be able to help a few people along the way. We will provide you with some interesting reading via the "ClickToPick BlogSpot", videos, photos and a mix of other helpful information about Living in and Visiting Thailand.
After having visited Thailand on an annual basis for several years I made the decision in 2016 to make Thailand my full time home and have been living here going on three years now. I have already posted several articles on our blog with plenty more to follow. My wife is a little camera shy but I believe that I have her warmed up to the idea of talking together with me in a couple of short videos which will include Traditional Thai Cooking Demonstrations. We live in a small farming community in the Northeast region known as "Issan". This region is likely a bit different from the Thailand that many tourists are familiar with. The Issan culture is very interesting and I am thoroughly enjoying living the "Isaan" lifestyle. You can learn more about Thailand and Issan by following us through our life experiences here in this incredibly beautiful country.

On our "A Taste of Thailand" video channel we present short video clips of Thai foods and fruits. Most of the clips will feature my Thai wife's home cooking and I have to say that she is an incredible cook. She is often sought out here in our region to cook for special events/parties. Her cooking style is based on "Isaan" cooking but she likes to add her own personal touch to all that she creates. We will also feature the different types of foods/fruits available in our region. Our daughter has recently taken an interest in cooking and we will be sharing her cooking experiences as well although she doesn't always stick to Thai Food. I have been introducing her to some "American" dishes and she has especially grown fond of baked sweets... Thai food is incredible so sit back and enjoy the videos!
On the Ken's "Thai Garden" video channel you will be able to follow the process and progress as I design, build, plant and maintain my Thai Garden. I am not new to gardening but definitely new to Thai gardening and it is a whole new world here in Thailand which means that a lot of my gardening practices from back in the States don't/won't work here. Especially when it comes to planting times and growing season... What I have come to learn is that pretty much the entire year is the growing season. So far I have focused on planting what I call "essential Thai cooking ingredients" which include Thai chili's, lemongrass, Thai basil, kaffir lime, eggplant, cilantro (corriander) and your standard garden greens. I will post video "shorts" documenting the progress as I layout my garden beds and continue with my planting. Most of my video clips are first posted on Twitter and Facebook so please be sure and follow on both accounts keep up with the action!
