    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 28/07/2017

    » Did you know that there is a way to make money every time you spend it? Say hello to ShopBack, the future of e-commerce. ShopBack is a mobile phone app with a lengthy list of stores, vendors, and services offering the cheapest deals on everything from air travel to high heels and every transaction made through this app rewards shoppers with a decent percentage of their cash back.

He was raised in Bangkok and has a degree in marketing from Thammasat Business School. He's been in e-commerce since leaving university, joining the operations team at Lazada, and then moving to Uber in 2014.

    A story for our times

    Life, Amitha Amranand, Published on 07/09/2017

    » Under oppressive regimes, artists are often forced to turn true stories into metaphors or disguise them in the stories of others to escape censorship, or much worse fates. The atmosphere of fear and the sense of stagnation perpetuated by such rule can have such insidious effects that the practice of wrapping true stories in the safe veil of the cryptic sometimes crosses into self-censorship and becomes habit-forming.

    'Bob' Halliday gone, but his light lives on

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 03/06/2017

    » Bob told me many stories from a time when I hadn't even been born: During the Oct 14, 1973 student uprising, the authorities suspected he was a spy. When the Oct 6, 1976 massacre took place and the stench of blood was still fresh at Thammasat University, he surveyed the wreckage and bemoaned the state of the country he had adopted as his new home. Some evenings he reminisced on how he had lived through several dictators and prime ministers, hijacked or elected, overthrown or incapacitated -- he talked about Richard Nixon, Thanom Kittikachorn, Tanin Kraivixien, Thaksin Shinawatra, Prayut Chan-o-cha, etc. It didn't matter what happened, he'd say, as long as he could prowl produce markets in search of the perfect durian -- the caramelised Holy Grail of the fruit he adored above all else, the fruit that, as he'd say, made him "slobber like a mastiff".
