    For the gram

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 31/08/2018

    » Let's face it: we live in a day and age where our lives are all about social media. People use it for things as vain as conjuring up the perfect image for their followers, to things like having a good online presence for their business. Whatever the case, one of the main platforms that we use daily (if not hourly) is good ol' Instagram. Since 2010, IG has all of us sharing photos, choosing filters, taking videos, being obsessed with the right aesthetic and posting on our stories. IG is pretty easy to use -- what's so complicated about taking a photo and uploading it -- but come on, you don't want to be an IG noob. Here are six apps to turn your IG cred up a notch, and except for one, all of them are available on the App Store and Google Play.

    Down with comics

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 21/08/2015

    » From the 1970s onwards, a huge number of Thai children have grown up reading Japanese comic books that formed a big part of their pop-cultural upbringing. Thai publisher Vibulkij led the charge by becoming the first to actually acquire licenses to publish comic books in Thailand in 1992. Adopting the Japanese model of releasing weekly magazines containing single chapters from various series, Vibulkij launched Friday, Thailand's first weekly manga magazine. These magazines gave readers the advantage of reading ahead of the collected volumes, of which only several were released each year for each series.

    Publicity never bad

    » Thanks for your brave attempt at clarifying what bridge is and is not (Life, Feb 15). One of the unintended consequences of the saga is that the Pattaya bridge club, small by international standards, is now the most famous in the entire world, with several hundred newspaper and TV reports and tens of thousands of comments on blogsites talking about it. The tale has also made Jeremy Watson (the organiser) and myself (the founder, in 1994) the best-known bridge players throughout the five continents even though our standards sadly fall short of the brilliance usually required for notoriety.

    Just like honey

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 11/11/2018

    » In her own curated Spotify playlist "The Music That Inspired Honey", Robyn has put together more than a handful of tracks that helped will her long-anticipated sixth album into existence. Opening with the celebrated Soviet pianist Emil Gilels' rendition of Mozart's Piano Sonata No.14b In C Minor, K457: II Adagio, the playlist encapsulates her wide-ranging taste in music as it flits from the funk/soul/disco of the 70s (Gwen McCrae, George McCrae, Sylvester, Mary Clark) to a full spectrum of electronic music ranging from ambient and IDM to house and techno (Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, DJ Koze, Bicep, Roman Flügel). Listening to the record, one could almost trace all of these influences which are strewn across its nine tracks, precisely making up 40 minutes of thoughtful, unadulterated pop exhilaration.
