The worldwide web is a powerful bridge for OFWs in Thailand to their families. Regardless if they are newcomers or have been in the kingdom for years, the net is overseas workers’ powerful window to the rest of the world.
There are heaps of information platforms you can find around the internet. This compilation will help if you want to stay ahead of the latest events that directly affect every OFW in Thailand.
On the other hand, if you want to keep track on the current trends, job posts and just about anything and everything relevant to our lifestyle in the kingdom, make sure to follow these blogs.
Here are the top blogs OFWs in Thailand must subscribe:
Starting as a hobby website in 1999 by Ian McNamara, Ajarn.com used to be an outlet for one teacher in Bangkok to share pieces of advice and his experiences in Thailand.
In 2004, the creator Ian handed over the reins to Phil Williams and ‘Bangkok Phil’ and they have run the website ever since.
Ajarn.com has grown enormously and is now the most popular TEFL site in Thailand – possibly even South East Asia. It is best-known for its jobs page, articles, blogs, features and help and advice.
2. The Pinoy Legacy
The Pinoy Legacy started as a print magazine called “The Legacy” in Phitsanulok, Thailand in 2016. After its successful publication, its editor, Lorenzo Caballes Jr. (Khun Kru Pinoy), invited John Patrick Benliro (Khon Philippine) and Jun Amparo (Richly Blessed Today) to create an online version of the magazine.
Now on its 4th year, The Pinoy Legacy continues to fulfill its purpose of entertaining, informing, and reaching more OFWs in Thailand and beyond.
3. Richly Blessed Today
Richly Blessed Today is an inspiring blog about personal finance, relationship, and spiritual reflection.
It’s author Mr. Jun Amparo is an author of two books; The NECKTIE Approach: 7 Things You Need to Know to be a Better Husband and OMG! OFW’s Money is Gone: Practical Tips On How to Be Wise with Your Hard-earned Money.
Aside from being a blogger and author, Mr. Jun Amparo also goes around to conduct financial literary seminars to OFWs in Thailand.
4. Pinoy Thaiyo
Like the Pinoy Legacy, Pinoy Thaiyo is also an online magazine that aims to raise awareness on various issues, trends, practices and other events that are of significant importance to the Filipino community in Thailand as well as Filipinos in other parts of the world.
Its name came as a result of a play on words that had both Filipino and Thai in them. “Tayo” which is the Filipino word for “We”, had its spelling changed to make it both unique and easily remembered.
5. Khon Philippine
Khon Philippine is a blog of a Filipino expat in Thailand. The blog covers various topics such as life experiences, travel, food, and everything in between.
Its founder, Mr. John Patrick Benliro, is also a co-founder and web administrator of The Pinoy Legacy.
As the threat of Covid 19 is in our midst, the government strongly suggests that we should stay at home for safety. I found these platforms worth subscribing to keep us abreast of the news or simply read inspiring and entertaining stories while at home.
