She's not Thai! (though mistaken for it everywhere :), met Evelyn 3 months ago in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She is a long-term traveler from the Philippines and now teaches English here at some elite school. We had a good time Exploring Bangkok together and eating continuously. I got to see where she lives -- the apocalyptic, yet stunning "Future Park" -- a mass of crowded, dirty concrete madness on the edge of Bangkok. Oh, turns out we share the same birthday!
