    Beyond the ropes

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 19/10/2018

    » In Bangkok's Charoen Krung area, tucked within an alley lies Maison Close, a dark bar/art gallery and home to some of the more uncommon tastes in art from abstract calligraphy to ero guro. However, as you enter the venue on some nights, art isn't the only focus but a blindfolded woman hung in suspension with ropes. The ropes have been tied up by a rope artist and her model serves as a canvas for elaborate and intricate patterns.

This is shibari or the art of Japanese rope bondage. Enter at your own risk.

    The Pheu Thai circus

    News, Postbag, Published on 05/08/2017

    » How many times have Pheu Thai politicians shot themselves in the foot. I've lost count. This time they just shot themselves in the mouth, blaming the government for the floods in the Northeast (BP, July 31). Have they forgotten what they did in 2011?

    Perils of police reform

    News, Postbag, Published on 08/07/2017

    » I'm glad that PM Prayut Chan-o-cha is reforming the police at long last, but he shouldn't reinvent the wheel.
