    Exploring Thailand in one day

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 26/04/2018

    » Thirty-six years ago, the 10-year-old me felt excited to see the replicas of more than 100 historic monuments, life-sized and smaller, in one place. Many other Thai students must feel the same since one of the must-sees on any school study trip is Muang Boran (Ancient Siam) in Samut Prakan province. Nowadays, Muang Boran has become a Thai art and culture learning centre and also a popular setting for the filming of TV series and movies.

    » In the true spirit of Marc Jacobs' iconic Daisy perfume line, the new version that's recently launched comes with daisy-based notes and of course, a larger than necessary flower cap. Daisy Love is undeniably feminine, with its bright pop of crystallised cloudberries that intermingle with daisy tree petals, cashmere musks and driftwood. Compared to the original, this version is a much sweeter fragrance and smells like that (still) dreamy phase during a new relationship. Available now at major department stores at 3,520 baht for 50ml and 4,200 baht for 100ml.

    Three months of edgy grassroots art

    Life, Ariane Kupferman-Sutthavong, Published on 06/07/2018

    » Bangkok's first-ever Biennial officially kicked off on Sunday night with an evening aerobics session on the Chao Phraya riverside at a popular spot for dwellers and sports lovers beneath the Rama VIII bridge. The choice of location -- anchored in Bangkok residents' daily lives -- and the disruptive event itself -- complete with ceremonial opening remarks and a ribbon-cutting moment -- set the tone (i.e. caustic, critical and edgy) for the many art exhibitions and activities to be held in Bangkok and elsewhere in Thailand in the coming months.

    It's really best when you say nothing at all

    News, Kong Rithdee, Published on 20/09/2014

    » Dear diary, it is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt, as Mark Twain said. How charming my mouth has been in the past week. If it had been Yingluck Shinawatra saying those things, I'm sure a riot would've broken out and the sound of a million whistles would've shattered your eardrums. But it's me, so it's different. It's not the action but the man. How could those pettifogging critics interpret my speech as avuncular nonsense, when in fact they're pieces of wisdom worthy of being chronicled in the national archives and inscribed onto monuments?

    In the heart of the city

    Life, Published on 22/11/2017

    » It's often said that the success of an art biennale, which, by definition, makes selections and therefore excludes, can also be found in the success of the "off", which utilises and gathers the energy of those not selected. Last Friday Apinan Poshyananda, chief executive and artistic director of the Bangkok Art Biennale (BAB 2018), announced the first 15 artists -- of more than 70 planned -- who will participate in the citywide show, whose venues include historic temples and modern galleries.
