    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 18/09/2013

    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 13/08/2013

    » Yesterday was the day most Thai mothers had their moments, as it was National Mother's Day. Unfortunately, mine was not among the many happy mothers, as I couldn't make it to visit her this year. And a promise was made on the phone that I will make it up to her as soon as possible.

    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 04/07/2013

    » Every time I call my mother, she never fails to try to convince me to consider moving back to our peaceful home town in Phatthalung. She believes that if you are not strong enough physically, spiritually and financially, Bangkok is going to eat you alive. I told her that after the high-profile murder case of Akeyuth Anchanbutr, the image of our city _ where the body was buried _ may not be as "peaceful" as before. I also said my love of Bangkok is too deep and that I am not going to move away from this city any time soon.

    The crying shame

    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 14/02/2013

    Face the new year with the true you

    Life, Yanapon Musiket, Published on 01/01/2013

    » Having a nickname has been part of Thai culture for decades. We have everything from a prime minister whose nickname is "Poo" meaning "crab", to a beautiful and famous television star known as "Pancake". My parents' nickname for me is Jeep, as in the tough-running American vehicle.
