    Funny or flippant?

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 21/03/2014

    » Thais are sanook people. We like to have fun and don’t take things too seriously. Although we here at Guru all enjoy off-colour jokes every now and then, there’s a fine line between making light of someone or something and getting a laugh, or doing the same but drawing a big “boo”. This week, we examine five of the most controversial flippant actions that took place in Thailand. Judge for yourself whether they went too far.

    » There have been two things on our mind during the last week besides Bangkok Shutdown and Lin Hui’s pregnancy. They are #selfieolympics and #bikinibridge. The former is the latest trend in photo-taking (seemingly for people who have smartphones, too much time on their hands and a big mirror in front of them) while the latter is a hoax (which we sure hope will really catch on in Thailand). They inspired us to search for lesser-known creative (and cuckoo) photo trends appearing in Thai social media that you may not be aware of. Help popularise them (at your own risk).


    Not the news

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 24/01/2014

    » We think we aren’t the only ones who have been glued to our smartphone screens of late, following updates regarding #BangkokShutdown on Twitter and whatnot. Amid the cascade of information and misinformation, one item caught our attention, like a crystal-encrusted golden whistle under the midday light. It was an item about nightlife giant Ku De Ta closing its doors after a series of “bad circumstances” over the past few months that were bad for business with the shutdown being the last straw.

    A very Thai Christmas

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 20/12/2013

    » Christmas is just five days away, and it does matter despite the fact that we live in a Buddhist country. Even though we don’t know how to re-enact the Nativity Scene and most likely can’t name all of Santa’s nine reindeers, that doesn’t stop us from embracing this jolly occasion. We explore how Thais get their Xmas spirit on.


    Recapping 2013

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 27/12/2013

    » New Year’s is time to look back at what has happened during the year that is about to pass. The media usually takes this opportunity to do a round-up of memorable moments. As an esteemed publication ourselves, we decided to do our very own recapping of 2013 (and because we’re too lazy to go out and find new stories). The year hasn’t been a thoroughly smooth ride but we were certainly never bored. Bye-bye, 2013!

    » Bangkok life comes with its fair share of first-world problems i.e. "What restaurant should I go to for my two-hour lunch break?", "How can I get a taxi when the condo's security guard is sick?", "Is the number of my champagne-gold iPhone 5s auspicious enough?", "How should I direct my chauffeur to avoid traffic?"
