    Revelations in Convent

    Life, Vanniya Sriangura, Published on 19/01/2018

    » Soi Convent has a strange pull. Crawling with office workers by day, it welcomes drinkers and diners by night. At one end is a cloistered convent protected by high walls, at the other a hospital and a church, and in between a motley selection of an Irish pub, street stalls, cafés, bars, dessert shops, dining venues, a som tam joint and an all-girls school. Flanked by the gaudy lights of Patpong and the business-minded Sathorn, the 800m soi in the busy financial district has a discreet but unfailing, perennial charm.

    A flash in the pan

    Brunch, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 21/05/2017

    » The most notorious pan in Thailand now is the Korea King pan being sold through social media and home shopping networks. The value-adding word "Korea" makes the Teflon pan seem more hi-so and eligible to be expensive. The product's advertisement claims that the frying equipment is worth 13,000 baht but the buy-one-get-one promotion offers shoppers two for only 3,300 baht. The importers are said to spend 15-16 million baht a month for such advertising but so far they have made up to 8 billion baht.
