Dear Friends of Archan Anek and devotees of Poodum.

For many years now I have continued to maintain this website and a couple of other information based websites at my own expense, however the financial burden is getting a little to big.

I have tried various things to try and generate a small amount of income to cover my costs and outlays, but none of them have been of any use at all, to be 100% honest with you, in the 4 years since I added the Google Ads on this site they have still not even generated 1/3 of the cost of just one years hosting and domain registration costs.

If you found this website useful and informative, please consider making a small donation to assist me with my overheads, even a single $1 from enough people would go a long way towards covering the overheads and perhaps even allow me to go to a premium hosting which has benefits for you in increased page load/browsing speeds.

If enough people help me out, I will remove these crappy ads forever.

Thank You in advance for any kind donation you make.

Note: If this is your first visit and you haven’t had a chance to spend some time perusing the site yet, you can click on the Donate Now button in the side bar when your finished, if you like what you saw.

May Buddha be with you.

Growing up I always wanted a tattoo but was never able to commit to anything

As the years went on I thought I was over it.  I guess it all started again when I went on Vipassana while in Australia.  There was this girl with the most beautiful tattoos.  I asked her about her tattoos and she told me she had them done the traditional way with a bamboo stick in Borneo.  I was intrigued and the seed was replanted.

Back for my second Sak Yant

My very first tattoo took me 38 years to get and I am glad I wanted and had a Yan Koo Poo Tong as my first experience. The experience of having my first tattoo and also getting it done in a different country seemed very overwhelming at first. My friend Mark did a good job at trying to calm my nerves leading up to the whole experience. Continue reading

I took my friend this time

The first time I visited Ajarn Anek was to arrange to have a “Yan Ha Tel” the now famous five lines on Anjelina Jolie or as my daughter calls it “barcode” I’d wanted one for a long time but did not know how to go about getting a good tattoo within easy distance from my condo.  I found Ajarn Anek by asking around in Pattaya, a new friend Adrian told me of the website, he told me it was strongly recommended by someone he knows; but now forgets who. This was a year back now. It took a year for Adrian and myself to be both in Pattaya at the same time. After my adventures to Ajarn Anek for my “Yan Ha Tel” Continue reading

New: Friends of Archan Anek Facebook group

Hi Everybody,

To allow those who have received a Sak Yant from Archan Anek to tell everyone about how much they enjoyed the experience and how much they love his work, I have created a Group on my Facebook page called “Friends of Archan Anek – Sak Yant Master

So why not join the group  and post up your thoughts and any photo’s that you may have not sent me to post on the Web Site. Please note that anything I deem inappropriate on the Facebook page will be deleted, it is there only to promote Archan Aneks work, not someone else’s.
