In this age of new communication, technologies and social media have made it easier for us to stay in touch with the people we care about, like family members and friends, and even strangers from different places and cultures around the world.

    The Latin explosion

    Guru, Published on 04/10/2019

    » Many Latin-themed bars have popped up across Bangkok in the last few years, but Flamenco sets itself apart with an eclectic design that looks like an upper-class Spanish house. The walls are splashed with maroon-red and luminous gold colours, while carpets and velvet furniture adorn the floor. The space, while feels intimate, is quite extensive with divided zones of a cigar room, a live-stage next to the dance floor, a moderate-sized outdoor seating area and a lounge that comes with large steel structures, built purposely to fit more than 100 bottle of spirits. There's also a greater focus on music with live-performances by different bands nightly. Check their monthly calendar to see if it's either swing, jazz or blues that'll take the stage the night you're planning to hit the club.

    Modern world leaders are just walking cliches

    News, Leonid Bershidsky, Published on 30/07/2019

    » One of the most striking things about Boris Johnson, who became UK prime minister, is how precisely he fits the stereotype of the eccentric upper-class Brit. With his elevation, Britain joins several major nations led by people who embody their national stereotypes and not the best of them at that. However, it could be argued that it's leaders defying such cliches who take their countries forward.

    Misguided myopia of asking the rich

    Oped, Thitinan Pongsudhirak, Published on 24/04/2020

    » Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha's initiative to seek more cooperation and assistance from Thailand's 20 wealthiest billionaires is understandable. Thailand needs all the help it can get to handle and manage the social and economic ravages of the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis. But making an appeal in writing from the top to the country's richest is short-sighted and misguided on many levels. It displays a government at the end of its tether and a leader who is being forced to own up to mismanaging the country for the past six years.

An example of what a positive effect this can have was provided recently at the Thailand Cultural Centre, when German conductor Golo Berg had his first collaboration with the Royal Bangkok Symphony Orchestra, providing expert accompaniment for Thai piano soloist Natnaree Suwanpotipra in Grieg's Piano Concerto In A Minor, and demonstrating masterly control of structure in the expansive canvas of Brahms' Symphony No.3 In F Major.
