    To markets, To (Indie) markets

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/09/2014

    » You would think Bangkokians have their shopping needs fulfilled to the brim already, given the ever-growing number of malls out there. To the contrary, there are many more special marketplaces that are popping up around the capital to offer different vibes and goodies. This weekend alone there will be two niche markets – Million Bike Market for bicyclists and Pet Design Fair for dog and cat people. We have decided to help you diversify your shopping experience with our pick of indie markets. We can’t be held responsible if you run out of cash before the end of the month, though.

    Facebook police

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 26/06/2014

    » Haven’t we all used Facebook to complain about something we see as wrong at some stage? There are some Facebook pages created and dedicated to raising awareness on improper behaviour in public places that you may not be aware of. Check them out in case you want to share your frustration, see what not to do so you won’t end up on one of these pages, or at least get a laugh out of them.

    Geek out

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 04/07/2014

    » If you’ve ever fantasised about sitting on the Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne, hugging a life-sized Rilakkuma, and/or taking a selfie with an army of Stormtroopers, you can make your geeky dreams come true at Bangkok Comic Con (fb.com/bangkokcomiccon, B150 per ticket), which runs from today (Jul 4) until Sunday (Jul 6) at Siam Paragon’s Royal Paragon Hall. The Geek God has blessed us with another opportunity to geek out again after Thailand Comic Con in May. As the event kicks off, we break down the highlights from Bangkok Comic Con and also tell you about made-in-Thailand comic books.

    Let There Be (En) Light (enment)

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 15/07/2014

    » Some of you may be feeling like you have to give up your weekend bar-hopping since today is Asarnha Bucha Day and tomorrow is Buddhist Lent Day (never thought these holy days would appear on our sin-filled pages, did you?). Instead of giving you tips for being ordained into monkhood or what kind of animal to release to gain the most merit, we want to help you nurture your spirituality with our selection of peace-loving havens that can be found right here in Bangkok. We also have other cool ways to make merit without having to get up super early to give alms to Buddhist monks. May the inner peace be with you.

    Co-working communities

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 20/06/2014

    » Bangkok has many options of co-working spaces for freelancers, start-ups and small companies and their number is on the rise. Two such places — Hive and Ma:D — opened last month while one more — Street67 — is on the way.

    Curious cafes

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 02/05/2014

    » At your average cafe, you can drink coffee, nibble, socialise, take selfies and whatnot. However, Bangkok is home to some special venues where you can do more than just chillax. This week we searched the city for cafes that offer unique add-ons and experiences. Here are our findings that should pique your curiosity.

    Pop culture explosion

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 09/05/2014

    » Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers will invade Bangkok this weekend! And no, we’re not saying that as a side effect of the Star Wars marathon we went on to celebrate Star Wars Day (May 4) or the announcement of the Star Wars: Episode VII cast. It’s because Thailand Comic Con 2014 is taking place from today until Sunday (May 9-11) at Siam Paragon and the arch-villain and his soldiers will make an appearance there. This week, to help you embrace your inner geek (we all have one — don’t be in denial), we present what you can expect from the pop culture event along with other ways to geek out in Bangkok.

    Splish splash

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 11/04/2014

    » There was a fuss made recently over a report that a company planned to organise Songkran celebrations in Singapore. Like a motorcycle taxi’s seat pre-heated by the April midday sun, this prompted some Thais to be extra protective of what they considered exclusive to Thailand. However, we need not worry about anyone copying our Songkran since we have many elements that are so inimitable that no other country would be able to (or want to) recreate them. In honour of the upcoming Thai New Year, we present you with all the things that make Songkran uniquely Thai.

    Change-makers

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 25/04/2014

    » Recently the BTS launched a campaign to encourage Thais to start using escalators properly. Y’know, walk on the left side or stay on the right if you want to stand still. While we’re at it, we think they should discourage people from hugging the centre poles between their buttocks unless they’re strippers (go to fb.com/ohmysat to see what we’re talking about).
