Paperback: $9.99 (excl. taxes)
Ships in 3-5 business days
Lek was born the eldest child in a typical rice farming family. She did not expect to do anything different from the other girls in her class: i.e. work in the fields for a few years; have a few... More > kids; let mum take care of them and go back to work until they had their own children and it would be her turn to stop working to take care of them. One day a catastrophe occurred – her father died young and with huge debts that the family knew nothing about. Lek was twenty and she was the only one who could prevent foreclosure. However, the only way she knew was to go to work in her cousin’s bar in Pattaya. She went as a waitress-cum-cashier, but she drifted into the tourist sex industry. The book relates some of her ‘adventures’, her dreams and nightmares and her ‘modus operandi’. It tries to show, from Lek’s point of view, what it really is like to be a Thai bar girl – the hopes and frustrations, the hopes and the let-downs, the hopes and the lies and deceit that are part of her every day life.< Less

The writings in this book were dictated to my father, Colin Jones of Barry, South Wales, by his spirit guides during the last 40 years of his life. They are about natural law, God's law or karma... More > and every day thoughts and problems and everyone should find them relevant to his or her life, whatever age or of whatever religious persuasion the reader may be. Colin Jones died on his 72nd. birthday in 2003, so it has taken me nine years to put this book together from the loose pages he gave me to work with. He was a spiritualist medium and a healer and was in constant active contact with his spirit guides, who often signed their work. In the original papers, it is easy to distinguish different styles of handwriting, as my father usually wrote them with his eyes shut. They are a fascinating insight into God's Eternal Plan and lessons on how everyone should be living their life.< Less
