    Building a company that lasts

    Life, Usnisa Sukhsvasti, Published on 22/02/2018

    » The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are not merely a global agenda or war cry for sustainable development that is being taken up by governments around the world. To move forward towards global prosperity, there has to be a balance and interaction between economic and social health. As such, business corporations have an equal responsibility and, increasingly, a need, to incorporate sustainable practices into their operations and management systems. It is not just a public-relations exercise, but a factor that will give them an edge, and also provide for long-term growth in a world where business no longer caters simply to a small circle of "customers" or "shareholders", but the wider target of "stakeholders".

    Just like honey

    B Magazine, 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.

    Fan Day marks a new day

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 02/09/2016

    » A new romantic drama from Thailand, Fan Gun Khae Wan Diaw (Fan Day), hits screens this week. That means there won't be much else for cinema-goers to choose from, since no other Hollywood blockbusters or Thai movies are willing to go in direct competition with director Banjong Pisanthanakun's latest creation. His previous movie -- the comedic retelling of old folklore Pee Mak Phra Khanong -- made history by reaching 1 billion baht at the box office in 2013, something we're unlikely to see again in a long, long time.

    Cool Thailand?

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 29/04/2016

    » It is only with reference to J-pop or K-pop that we have a clue as to what the word "T-pop" could possibly mean: an attempt at cultural export -- film, music and other forms of entertainment -- to create a "Thai brand" of cool. It's better late than never, so the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has recently launched a campaign, with Thai star Mario Maurer as the presenter, with the aim to boost tourism in Thailand and expand the entertainment market in China.
