About me


I am Ploy, originally from Bangkok, Thailand. That explains why my name might not be very familiar (Ploy = Sapphire in Thai). In 2007, I came to Japan to travel and heard about a scholarship from a girl on the bus. I applied after I returned home and got a full scholarship. I took the opportunity and came to Japan since March, 2008 when I was just 17. I studied at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University in Beppu city, Oita prefecture. 3.5 years in one of the most multi-cultural university in Japan, I met so many wonderful friends and professors from all over the world and learnt so much from all the things I experienced there. I love Japan and decided to stay after college. I am now working at a Japanese Fortune 400 company.

I speak 4 languages: Thai, English, Japanese, Chinese. I love traveling and meeting new people. Coming to Japan was unexpected but probably one of the best decision I have made so far. I am thankful for my family that has supported me to go study and travel to so many countries since I was little. I never take the opportunities I got for granted and will always appreciate everyone who has helped me in some ways.

In this blog, I write about my experiences in Japan and a few from here and there. I used to make many YouTube videos until life got busy.I am still active on Twitter and Facebook. I organize some tweetups in Tokyo sometimes.

  1. Hi Ploy,

    My name is Emilie, I am a foreign student from Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. I chanced upon your videos while looking for jobhunting information from youtube and have liked reading your blogs ever since. I have followed you on twitter as well. Sorry, if this seemed random to you. But is it alright if I ask you some questions with regards to jobhunting in Japan?


    • Hi Emilie!

      Thank you for your msg.
      Can you send me a tweet in twitter? So I can follow you and DM you my email. 🙂 I’m not sure how much I can help but I’ll be happy to help!
