    The fine line between jokes and abuse

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 22/08/2014

    » Thai teen series <i>Hormones</i> became known last season for showing the provocative, daring and unexpected. It is a show with guts that breaks the conservative tradition of most Thai TV shows. Now in its second season, barriers have once again been broken in almost every episode. Nothing remains fresher in my memory, however, than the fourth episode of the season, titled after the female lead characters of <i>Dao and Koi</i>.

    Bangkok songkran agendas

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/04/2013

    » OMB! We have five days off in a row because the cabinet kindly declared that this year's "official" Songkran break starts from today until Tuesday. Say what you will about PM Poo, but she is so right in giving us a long holiday since we can't function properly during this kind of heat anyway. Anyhoo, that's over 7,000 minutes we're supposed to wisely spend relaxing before going back to the grind on Wednesday. And even though some shops and places in Bangkok may be shut during the Thai New Year, there are plenty more options for celebrating. Here's what we suggest you do and, hopefully, you may also find a deeper meaning of Songkran Festival (besides throwing water at strangers) along the way. Happy splashing, everyone.

    To markets, To (Indie) markets

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/09/2014

    » You would think Bangkokians have their shopping needs fulfilled to the brim already, given the ever-growing number of malls out there. To the contrary, there are many more special marketplaces that are popping up around the capital to offer different vibes and goodies. This weekend alone there will be two niche markets – Million Bike Market for bicyclists and Pet Design Fair for dog and cat people. We have decided to help you diversify your shopping experience with our pick of indie markets. We can’t be held responsible if you run out of cash before the end of the month, though.

    Sticking the world together

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 09/09/2014

    » Eighteen billion stickers are sent through Line every day. The emotions they carry with them however, are boundlessly immeasurable. This green-iconed chatting application has changed the way we communicate, merely through its infectious selection of cheeky rabbits and poker-faced bears.

    The new Siam

    Guru, Published on 18/07/2014

    » During the political drama and mayhem earlier this year, we noticed that packs of thigh-high-skirt-wearing college girls and guys with too-cool-for-school haircuts had somehow migrated from Siam to other areas of the city. Now that “peace” has been restored (along with the awfully catchy patriotic song), Siam Square is back in better shape than ever with a brand new shopping mall and new hangout spots that have opened within the last six months. Get your folding fans out and layer on your SPF 50+ creams as we show you how to spend a day on the air-con-less side of Siam.

    Let There Be (En) Light (enment)

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/07/2014

    » Some of you may be feeling like you have to give up your weekend bar-hopping since today is Asarnha Bucha Day and tomorrow is Buddhist Lent Day (never thought these holy days would appear on our sin-filled pages, did you?). Instead of giving you tips for being ordained into monkhood or what kind of animal to release to gain the most merit, we want to help you nurture your spirituality with our selection of peace-loving havens that can be found right here in Bangkok. We also have other cool ways to make merit without having to get up super early to give alms to Buddhist monks. May the inner peace be with you.
