    Green world rising

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 12/07/2019

    » The Mall Group has begun charging B1 for each plastic bag to coincide with the International Plastic Bag Free Day on Jul 3. Shoppers at The Mall, Emporium, EmQuartier and Siam Paragon are being encouraged to bring their own bags for all their shopping needs. It's a small but significant step towards the city's progress in reducing the use of plastic like many other places in Thailand. Even Central Group has stopped handing out plastic bags to shoppers. Additionally, they will not provide plastic bags on the 1st, 4th and 16th of every month reminding shoppers to bring in their reusable bags.

    All You Need Is Paco

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 12/07/2019

    » I may not be an art enthusiast/fanatic but I do appreciate any work of art when I see one. The amount of visual creativity and artistic effort one has put into something is quite admirable and rewarding for them. So when I stepped into Paco Bangkok, a small but cosy smoothie bowl cafe whose owners inject a bit of art into their desserts, you can colour me impressed with what I saw. But would I also be impressed with what I tasted? Read on to find out.

    The Land of Double Standards?

    Guru, Published on 12/07/2019

    » While Thailand is forever known as The Land of Smiles, the real locals (who like to keep it real) can come up with an ironic take on the famous notion. The Land of Double Standards springs to mind, thanks to recent developments (or lack thereof) in Thai politics. Check out the table below to see if you agree with me.

    Uncle Tu's Book Club

    Guru, Published on 05/07/2019

    » As you may already know, our PM Prayut Chan-o-cha is an avid reader for he has recommended many books we Thais should pick up and read. Dear Uncle Tu claims that he reads more than 800 lines per day (that perhaps explain why the Cabinet hasn't been established yet, at the time of writing) and (in)famously suggested George Orwell's Animal Farm, which he finds has nothing to do with the status quo of Thai politics.

    Made in Thailand

    Guru, Published on 05/07/2019

    » To say that Thailand has been getting global recognition lately may be a bit of an understatement. After all, it's not a secret that it's a famous tourist destination with plenty of beautiful beaches and street food that's been topping lists for years now. Of course, these are only just a few things Thailand is well-known for but we don't really have the time to get into all of that (*cough* rigged election *cough*). However, people from the outside may have a narrow view of what Thailand and its culture really is, but fortunately, there are things that help put a spotlight on these things. The next instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise is filming right now in parts of Thailand, including Krabi where its governor stated that the film would be a "great advertisement for the nature, culture and history of the kingdom". Erm sure, that's what the Fast and Furious franchise is all about anyway. While the film will most likely be more about cars zoom-zooming and vroom-vrooming, there are a number of shows on TV that give a better focus on Thai culture. Here are a few.
