Made in Thailand – An Excerpt


I believe Bangkok traffic is something everyone should experience at least once in their life and an item to be added to the bucket list. Bangkok traffic defines the real definition of ‘traffic jam’. You could get stuck in it and not move for many long hours. The worst time was when it rained, especially during the rainy season when there is flooding. Flooding and traffic put together, especially in Bangkok, is a very bad combination. Bangkok traffic is so bad I can only compare it with joining every single vehicle into one single unit until it is bigger than the size of the city itself. It does make you wonder where all the vehicles come from. It is like a traffic apocalypse. 


Record one thing you’re grateful for (flatmates with the same shoe size, a FaceTime chat with your mum, that free coffee in Pret – it’s all relative) each day for three weeks. Research says it can improve your mood, sleep and energy.

DAY 3 – Bloggers, readers and fans

Today, I am thankful for having amazing bloggers, readers and fans in my life, because without them, my books would not be known. The last time I checked the sales for the latest book/autobiography Made in Thailand, it had surpassed my expectation, all thanks to the bloggers, readers and fans.


As a writer/author, it is always important to remember to stay humble, no matter how big of a star we may become, because at the end of the day, the bloggers, readers and fans are the main people who will be buying the books and spreading the word. They are the ones doing the main ‘marketing’.







Thank you to those who have been buying and supporting Made in Thailand. You have no idea how truly thankful, appreciative and grateful I am.

Hello to my fellow bloggers and friends,

Thank you so much for making my blog reach 1000 likes. It would not have been possible without your HUGE support, so thank you. I always read and pay attention to every single like, follow and comment (good or bad). I never miss one, and I never ignore, I promise you that. Thank you once again and much love always.

Hi all,

For those of you who have been following my blog, there has been a MAJOR revamp to the site, which included the name being changed from PY LAB to my pen name Puiyin W.L.

At first, I didn’t have plans on revamping the blog. But then I had seconds thoughts. I am constantly revamping and re-styling my publishing website, so why not the blog? Sometimes change is good, right? Do let me know what you think. I will be back on Friday with a brand new post. It has been a while and it’s time to bring the mojo back.

Much love always,

PY LAB aka Puiyin W.L.

Inspirational Excerpt from ‘Made in Thailand’

My father, the most inspirational figure in my life.


“…my father might be strict, but at the end of the day he wanted me to have the best quality education and be the very best that I could be. He wanted me to have the opportunity to further my studies in the international field and have broader choices when it came to my career. He wanted to prove that an Asian could be just as successful as anyone else in the international field.”
