The All New Asian Sirens Launches Next Week!
This will be the last time I prepare a post on this creaky old CMS, as we will finally be launching the all new Asian Sirens next week. I will be starting the transitional process tomorrow, during which time I cannot guarantee all comments will be preserved - so if you've got something to say, you'd better get it off your chest today. :-) Anyway, before you start to worry, I guarantee that all the things you love about Asian Sirens will continue, only better than ever. It will no longer be necessary to log in to comment, however I am sure many of you will still want to register anyway, to enjoy all the wonderful new features. All will be revealed next week (probably one week from now). In the mean time, I encourage to explore our vast archive of more than 2500 posts, or via our Tumblr page if you prefer.
Update: This site will continue as it is for now - as long as you can still post comments, they should still be preserved. If we can't preserve comments from any point in the future, I will simply disable the comment form first.
Sounds great, Doc.
A couple questions. Will all of the old archives be assessable after the switchover?
Will our usernames and/or passwords be preserved? I wasn't clear when you say we will want to register. Perhaps I can now get my prefered username, which I screwed up so long ago on this site.
Anyway, thanks for minding the store
1) The old site will remain fully accessible (there's too much great stuff here to throw away!), but I may be converting it to a static archive.
2) Yes, if you want to be registered for the new site you will have to sign up again - the current usernames/passwords will not be transferred.
Thank you for all your hardwork and dedication in making Asian-Sirens.com a site I look forward to visiting everyday!
I might sign up as Arf, he always seems happy ;)
Ha Ha? Then I'll go Luke73. That's the year I was born.
I wanted just Luke but someone had it, although I never saw them post. I'm a 72 baby Arf so a similar vintage.
Looks likes there'll be a rush on usernames next week. :-)
hey hey… i’m not so old after all!!! bloody hell, born in 72 and 73??? Are you sure the creaking and worn hearts can take the excitement of these asian sirens pictures??
77 here myself. I wonder what the demographic breakdown is of the readers here. It would be interesting to also hear about the paths that led each of us to "yellow fever".
Myself, I was into blonde and blue-eyed (especially with german accents)…. until i first landed in Korea years ago. And have never looked back.
This is a great site Doc and crew. look forward to the new look.
Crikey hope noone beats me to registering as 'longtack'.
i hope these dots ....... will be allowed as a username...
Kroos: I had a Cambodian baby sitter when growing up. And so the journey began....
Wait Doc! If "anyone" can comment without signing up, what will happen to the "level" of the discussion? I suspect you will have to delete quite a few posts.
fungasfarm: Well said. Ditto!
All first time posters will be moderated, and virtually all spam will be blocked by my scripts (I know because I've been using them for years on Sachiko's blog - they block more than 100 spammers a day!). Actually, that site will give you a sneak preview of what's to come, as it based on the same software (AS will have a lot more social features though).
And Kroos: I joined the air force and went to Okinawa in Sept, 2000 and Zoiks! here I am with a wife from the philippines and two kids.
Off arf went, into the wild blue yonder....
I was at the US Embassy in Tokyo in spring of 2000. While there, I always found myself checking out the 100's of pictures of General MacArthur in the Philippines because in the background there were always a couple of hot 1940's Manila chicks off to the side somewhere- like when he was telling a village that he would save them, or something like that.
Man, what's wrong with me?
By the way, it is true that MacArthur's bedroom in the embassy (he was governor of post-war Japan) was in fact pink. I always found that interesting.
Mine was mostly homegrown as I studied (Uni) and then worked with a lot of Asians. There are so many in Melbourne. I didn't go to Asia until I went with my future wife.
I think retrospective articles on old Asian Sirens would be interesting as I clearly remember a few that changed my thinking.
And here I am after just viewing this site for what seems like years just now registered and it appears it was all for not. But as for what led me to Asians......ever since I can remember I've found them to be the most beautiful. I was born in 68.... Aigoooo....does that make me elder statesman here?? In Highschool I would clip any pic that I could find in glamour mags of Asian women and tack on my closet door. But Pacific Beauty and Adam Yurman saved my life! Haha
Oh, and I have a korean girlfriend that I hope to marry soon.
One would hope not to lose an old friend
When reading a letter they most recently send
I wish only that the letter does not portend
That a terrific site will come to an end.
We here have comforting words from the Doc
That a new Sirens site will soon be on the block
All of us yearn for the new posts to rock
Whence Sirens from Tokyo, Shanghai or Bangkok.
I've not much time recently to view
And worse no chance to write a review
Whether to pan the posts or more likely to coo
"Bout lovely girls I'd really like to woo.
I just saw plenty of lovelies in hot Singapore
Kroos and Longtack would want to know more
But I think not to divulge to not be a bore
About my success rate in trying to score.
Here's hoping I can still be a quipper
And keep my name as the doubledipper
Doc will drive as our quite able skipper
To the first post! I bet it's a gripper!
OK, I'm hugely out of practice. But at least I'm home for a couple of weeks to watch the beginning of hockey playoffs and see the new Asian Sirens.
@dbldipper: Very nice!
As for hockey, I shall raise my glass to the Brothers Hansen.
Nice work as always doubledipper. :-)
Will the URL change doc?
@Enigmatic..lol.. you are not the eldest here. I was born in 1956.
kroos, I think, is an old codger too.
Nice to see some verse dipper. Missed it of late.
Yes, the URL will change - there will be a very obvious link to the new site at the top of every page here.
I was born in '55 then reincarnated in the Philippines in '75 thanks to the US Navy. Been hooked on Asian Ladies ever since, and have lived here 22 years total.
That's a nice feel good story Subic Man. Kinda how I wanna end up when I get out of the military. Living on a beautiful beach in the Philippines...happy.
Deep down inside my parents knew I was a WestPac Sailor since I made my appearance in '66. Now here I am Up Country in Thailand trying to keep my neck on straight. The food, the people, I love SEA.
Ooooh Thailand! I love it there. Maybe you live near Udon Thani pseacraft? I bought a lot of nice gold there in 2004. Nice town.
First time poster on possibly the last day of this "creaky old site" as Dr. Lee said (I don't agree, these pages are great!).
In any case, I think my first Siren was Kiana Tom on ESPN2 mornings while in college. Outside of a couple dark-haired girls it's been predominantly Asian girls ever since for me. Hoping to get out to Japan or Korea and teach ESL in about a year... trouble may ensue.
Let's keep this interesting discussion going - it looks like we won't be going live for a few more days yet.
We're gonna be live? WoW! I'm kinda shy.
OMG! I remember watching Kiana Tom back in the mid 90's. She was so healthy and sweaty and brown. That was the main reason I watched along with some inspiration to workout a little harder. Another hottie was Tia Carrere in Wayne's World. Goodness gracious. I just drooled a little.
Well, it looks like I'm not the oldest here (thanks Subic Man). :-) I had my first assignment in the Air Force in Okinawa, and had many TDY's (temporary duty assignments) to the Philippines and Korea and the women just floored me and of course I married one. I still love women of all races/colors/ethnicities, but Asian women will always be my favorite.
I will forever remain wingsfan19, regardless of the new user names.
I agree 100%...the TDY's were the greatest while I was in Okinawa.
Starting to think i need to join the airforce. Knowing my luck however they’d post me in Afghanistan. Mind you, I have heard those afghani women have a really sexy eyebrow under those burqas……
Looking forward to the new site.
It's a bit like waiting for Christmas.
As self-appointed "Second in Command", I appease your wait with two of my recent favorites:
(If you are the Doc and are reading this, I was only kidding about the second in command thing)
Actually, sometimes I think I could use a second in command. :-)
Sounds like French has a promotion. Congratulations!
@Kroos, I hear that many ladies in the more well to do Arabian countries are really sexy and have very expensive lingerie on underneath the burqas. If you could confirm that would be handy.
An early favourite of mine was Sammy Stone who was popular in the '90's
French can be the "second In Command" if I can be the Treasurer.
Or better yet, "Chief Siren Inspector" :-)
Dunno about Second in Command, but like his taste.
Can we edit our comments in the new Asian Sirens? I’d like to edit mine above and perhaps emphasise “I like his taste IN WOMEN!”. (sorry wings but you’re just not my type…)
Yep, this long awaited and often requested feature will be available for all users, for up to half an hour.
ahhh bugger it. I mean FRENCH dammit, I like FRENCH’s taste in women. And I’m all for french kissing… but just not French. Australian kiss is better anyway. Oh never mind. Beer time.
Oh great Doc, you snuck your comment in there quickly. Editing would be great. Can we start now?
@arf - yes, Udorn is 'down' the road from me. '04 you say? Officially moved here in '04. :0
Large thanks to the Doc for showing us what these amazing women are up to. Looking forward to the new site.
How did I never see Sammy Stone before???
Actually, my all time favorites have always been Natasha Yi and Sung Hi Lee. Ohhh those spectacular Koreans!
That's awesome pseacraft. Is Steve's Bar still there? Really good English food when I ate there nine years ago...scary how time flies.
I feel that I would be some sort of sham A-S member if I didn't contribute to the final feed of the site, so:
I have done some research and it turns out that Ms. Macale (http://www.asian-sirens.com/blog/comments.php?id=2792_0_1_20_C) is truly trying to find a relationship on okcupid. She is on other social networking sites, as well, but I just wanted to say that some of these beauties are available and looking. Go find 'em boys!
Disclaimer: I won't post her username, you'll have to find her yourself.
is the new site up yet?
I'm just doing some final double checks now. It will be ready to launch by tomorrow, but I'm thinking about having the weekend off and launching on Monday instead. :-)
I'm on the edge of my seat!!!
@ mcantrell I was reading a whole lot of bad stuff about her when clicking through the links at the time she was posted. It is a part of the internet I don't completely understand, is she mental or are there just a bunch of nasty people she has got offside?
Doc, I can't wait any longer, LAUNCH I say.
"It's the final countdown"...old song, nevermind.
Yep, we're going live tomorrow - tune in at our usual posting time!
(BTW, the new site will be on UTC, so it will run 2 hours ahead of this one.)
Well done Doc!..oh and last one out..turn off the lights please...;-)
What time is that for us Doc? (Australian eastern)
Just curious, I'm east coast of US....where is everyone?????
UTC is 10 hours behind non-daylight savings time here on the east coast of oz.
Just one more hour to go now...
Where is the link? I feel like a dumbass. I've checked back several times.
I've put it up in a new post! Anyway, here it is again:
@Luke72: It seems that celebrity breeds jealousy but, judging from her posts, it also breeds vanity and I think the combination has led to the storm you see on the interwebs. I can't explain why so many people have hung on with their anger, but I can only assume that it is associated with the dreaded diseases of "internet courage" and "trollism."
yes it is bizarre
wow, I get back here and the world is coming to an end! I mean, the old AS world! :)
Ok, 1 second and I'm jumping to the new world.
