The first thing I ever published online was on a site called Bangkok Diaries.

Looking back, I can see how my post might have come across as bitter, and I did use some blanket statements, but there were nuggets of truth in it. As a young, Canadian woman in Bangkok, I did feel like one of the guys, and at times, invisible.
Here is the post. It is a snapshot of a night out in Bangkok as a young, farang woman.
