    #FakeItToMakeIt

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 04/09/2015

    » Online shopping is the latest addiction for today's women. And who can blame us? When we're browsing our favourite celebrity's Instagram accounts, shops make their presence known in the (irrelevant) comments. When we're spying on our exes on Facebook, the ads on the side provide a nice distraction.

    #WhatsInAName

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 28/08/2015

    » I recently saw a magazine cover that featured a man who had an extremely strange and long name. I don't even remember the name, what he did or why he was on the cover. All I remember is that his name was really weird. It was the Thai equivalent of "Dsfjosoifandegfio". In other words, it looked like someone had spilled Scrabbles tiles and decided to use the resulting mess as a name.

    #PrayForThailand

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 21/08/2015

    » About a week ago, I told my friend I didn't ever want my kid to grow up. She agreed, saying it's probably irresponsible to bring a new life into this kind of world. Our reasons were simple -- the ever-worsening traffic, people's deceitfulness, cruel climate change and just the struggle of life in general. Try getting through Friday evening traffic on payday when it rains on Sukhumvit Road -- you'll see what I mean. Or read this issue's cover story, which pretty much sums it up.

    #SocialMediaWoes

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 14/08/2015

    » What would life be without social media? Admit it -- the first thing you do in the morning is reach for your phone to see if you have new Line messages or Facebook notifications. If you're older than age 60, part of your morning ritual also includes sending flower images to everyone on your contacts list. (Can someone tell me the purpose of this?)

    #WeddingGuestilla

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 31/07/2015

    » Although there is no set-in-stone rule as to when you should get married, chances are you'll be receiving two wedding invitations per year in your mid-20s, and about five per month as you approach 30. Seriously, hitting 30 is like clearance sale season, with all your girlfriends flying off the shelf in a flurry.

    #DesignProblems

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 24/07/2015

    » The design industry seems like the fastest-growing, most profitable industry in the world. Or maybe the second, following the counterfeit industry selling the same products at shamelessly cheaper prices.

    #LINEHyperactivityDisorder

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 17/07/2015

    » I've recently taught my mother how to use Line, because she'd been to a reunion and suddenly realised how much she had missed out on.

    #BangkokDriversSyndrome

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 10/07/2015

    » I was about a few years short of being able to apply for my driver's license when they announced they would no longer be offering lifelong permits. That means, for the rest of my life, I'm required to visit the Department of Land Transport every five years to renew this little white card that I've never really used — for which I am proud, as it means I've never been flagged down by traffic police!

    #ILovePRPeople

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 03/07/2015

    » As a part of my glamorous, coveted job, I am in contact with about 100 PR representatives per day. OK, maybe five, but still. While most of them are pleasant and send me food on a regular basis, I've had my share of traumatising experiences that I can't seem shake out of my pretty head. I'm not just talking about PR people exclusively — the young(er) generation of office workers can also drive office aunties like me up the wall.

    #YouAren'tWhatIEat

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 26/06/2015

    » Eating is so basic and instinctive, yet modern-day crazies have made it oh-so-complicated. It's associated with health, wealth, manners, character, knowledge, karma — the list goes on.
