    B Magazine, Published on 17/07/2016

    » In last week's Green Fingers, I mentioned that my friend, who lives in California, said that US farm owners hired flocks of sheep to graze on their farms. "It's cheaper than hiring workers to clear the land of grass," he said. I thought he was pulling my leg, but just because the practice is unheard of in Thailand does not mean it's implausible.

    It's all peachy

    B Magazine, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 09/12/2018

    » Apart from the show's male winner Rangsan "Songkran" Panyaruen, The Voice Thailand Season 2 gave us a handful of female vocalists who'd showed strong potential including Violette Wautier and Rapeeporn "Lukpeach" Tantragoon.

The company will bring back another musical in November, Mae Nak: The Musical, which came from what they consider to be the company's second period in their development. And in a few months, Dreambox will stage Namngoen Thae, a new musical adapted from a historical novel of the same name by one of Thailand's most popular novelists, Lin Lyovarin.

    An acquired taste

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 09/06/2019

In Isan, people traditionally make their own pla ra. And when children there are old enough to eat solid food, the first thing their parents usually feed them is freshly-steamed glutinous rice dipped in pla ra.
