Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.

Daddy had to learn how to say ouch in Thai.

He is in Bangkok speaking at a conference. People like my daddy. I am happy when people like my daddy.

I also like when he brings me presents from all the different places in the world he has been to.

I have bracelets from the Caribbean, necklaces from Manila, glowing globes of Merlions from Singapore and more.

I wonder what he will bring me from Bangkok?

Maybe he will bring me a Thai massager. But I am not sure I want one or not.

Daddy said he had to learn how to say ‘ouch’ in Thai.

The conference people brought in some guys from the WATPO Thai Traditional Medical and Massage School and they gave massages. Daddy tried it out.

You can see the results.

But apparently it felt pretty good when they were done. It always feels better when the hurting stops. I don’t need to have a massage to know that.

Daddy has a day off today and he says he will go to the temple of the WATPO school so the students there can practice on him. I think it’s like going to a barber school to get a haircut. But at the massage school, they don’t cut off any body parts. I think.

Have you ever had a Thai massage?

I am creating my own massage technique. You can click to see me demonstrating bodywalking.

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
