    Filming history

    Muse, Kong Rithdee, Published on 01/10/2016

    » Anocha Suwichakornpong's first degree is in jewellery design, but you won't see any gleaming items on her.

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 08/05/2015

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 10/08/2015

    » Days of back-breaking labour in the desolate boonies, farming for their lives, is a stale cliché concerning the Chinese. Women are no longer under some ring of patriarchal oppression and they contemptuously shun haute couture dresses bedecked with phoenix and dragon embroidery. This is a new and brave China we are talking about -- they are not just crazy rich -- they are China Rich, as Kevin Kwan's second book title aptly coins it.

    The persistence of serenity

    » Last week your columnist reported from the safety of his luxurious room at the Avani Atrium Hotel on New Phetchaburi Road, Bangkok, where he lamented the decline of the area’s red-light district of a quarter of a century ago. Lamented? Hardly. But that is beside the point.

    Life, Yvonne Bohwongprasert, Published on 27/10/2015

    » If it wasn't for Dr Mano Laohavanich's healing meditation expertise, Sombat Hataipiemsuk, a colon cancer survivor, would have fallen into a pit of depression after doctors told him that he had to live with a colostomy bag for the rest of his life.
