Many of the reader submissions are tales of expats and their misadventures in Asia. My story Living the Bells of St. Trinium's can be read here: http://www.stickmanbangkok.com/ReadersSubmissions2012/reader7485.htm
It is at the very bottom of the Readers Submissions column, scroll way down to the bottom of the page, look for Wilkins MacQueen dated 18/6/12 for a slice of a day in the life.
This story was destined for a monthly column I was to write that didn't materialize in a neighboring city monthly magazine. The magazine was going to publish it and then tell me after it was published they couldn't pay me. So I yanked it. Hey, no hard feelings, I'm just glad I was able to pull it before it was published.
