Jonny There Is Something Happening
Always fun and energetic, Jonny started his Thailand vlog journey in 2016.
Born in New Zealand, he grew up in Australia’s Gold Coast until an early retirement at an age of 32 when he moved to Thailand, after selling his successful boat detail and fiberglass repair business.
I could’ve stayed on and worked my guts out until I was 50, but what for? I can’t see the point of working for 50 or 60 years of age and dying in ten years after. What kind of life is that?Jonny
As the name suggests, Pattaya Pariah is another vlog channel from the streets of Pattaya. Inspired by authors such as Charles Bukowski, Clive James and the black comedy of Jack Rosenthal, his videos are a series stylized in the genre of dirty realism and transgressive fiction.
