    Consumers Unite!

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 06/01/2012

    » What do you do when sen lek arrives at your table instead of the sen yai that you ordered? What will you do in protest when dtac's service inevitably goes down again? How about taxi drivers who won't take you to your destination unless you accompany them on a joyride to a gem store first?

    Mix master Mayhem

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 06/01/2012

    » It's as easy as ABC to get tipsy in Bangkok. Go to any 7-Eleven and buy a bottle of beer or 100 Pipers. Visit a neighbourhood grocery store (if you can still find one) and pick up a bottle of lao khao. Ya dong stalls can help you numb your senses or obtain magical powers. In fact, sometimes it's harder to stay sober than get drunk living in this city.

    Chinese life Cycle

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 20/01/2012

    » For non-Chinese people, Chinese New Year (Jan 23) probably conjures images of dragons, lions and ang pao. But there is much more than simply these things to the Chinese way of life. You really don't know what goes on in the life of a Chinese unless you're born one. And, as the resident Chinese-descendant of the Guru team, I feel it's my duty to offer insight into the different stages of Chinese life in Thailand so you can enjoy the upcoming Chinese New Year like a true Chinese no matter what age or ethnicity you are. Kung Hei Fat Choy, everyone.

    88 Baht Party

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 20/01/2012

    » We would all agree that B69 is a sexier price than B70, right? Sexual connotations aside, you dirty minds, what makes the former more attractive is the impression that it has already been discounted and we could part with our money in order to buy it with less worry.

    Food ville

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 27/01/2012

    » I'm skipping through a neighbourhood of quaint houses and cute cottages. A windmill stands tall against the clear blue sky and a water mill turns at a sleep-inducing rate. I wish I had brought my hammock to string between two trees and sleep away the lazy afternoon. My dog is chasing butterflies and if you listen closely you can hear the sound of crickets.

    The scientific artist

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 27/01/2012

    » WHY ARE YOU INTERESTED IN GENETIC ENGINEERING? I personally like the subject matter and wanted to question it through my artwork. Unlike artists in the past that worked under common genres such as portraiture, animals or landscape, art has becomes more personal with artists incorporating their own interests in their work. Genetically engineered animals and plants are now a reality and I think we still don't fully know the effect they can have on human beings.

    Alternative ways

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 03/02/2012

    » Although we're all budding non-materialistic Buddhists, we need money and can always use more of it. And while most of us try to get a degree and become a white-collar salary slave, some people have made serious baht in more imaginative ways. Besides drug trafficking (which we strongly advise against), here are six unconventional ways people have generated their dough.

    In the name of love

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 10/02/2012

    » Love is indeed a strange and powerful force. It can make us do crazy things like stare at the phone willing our darling to call for the fifth time of the day. It can make us spend a year's salary impressing our khun noo girlfriend with an LV bag despite an unwavering credit card debt. It can drive us to hide in the bushes behind the object of our affection's house, going through their trash in the hope of finding a lock of their hair to use in a love spell.

    Urban picnic

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 10/02/2012

    » Dining among nature in the centre of Bangkok isn't the stuff of fairytales anymore. No longer do you have to experience the tragedy of attempting a picnic lunch at Lumpini Park, and being attacked by pigeons, turtles and monitor lizards in the process. Break free from the shackles of a faux-flora-and-fauna joint, where views of the concrete jungle loom like a dark shadow.
