If you’ve happened by Lost Laowai recently, you’ll have noticed that the site was down. The reason should be pretty apparent why — she’s been redesigned!
For months I’ve been trying to find the time to sit down and give the site a bit of development love, and for months I failed to do so.

A two-way street where expats can gain and share knowledge about living, working and playing in this crazy country we call home (even if for some that’s only temporary).

I’m a bit crap at remembering birthdays, and so this is a bit late – but Lost Laowai officially turned 2 years old a week or so ago. It’s a bit hard to believe that it was that long ago I started clacking away on my keyboard attempting to put together some sort of site …Read More
