    Legacy of early man

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 30/06/2016

    » Visiting museums in Thailand is no longer dull since several museums have been renovated and well-presented. Since its big improvement late last year, the 128-year-old National Museum Bangkok regularly comes up with rotating exhibitions. The latest is the ongoing "Early Man Of Our Land" exhibition, which will be held until Aug 21 at Issaravinitchai Throne Hall.

    The circus comes to town

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 04/12/2014

    » During last month's Harmony World Puppet Carnival Bangkok Thailand 2014, audiences had the rare opportunity to experience the art of puppetry from 80 countries in one place — Rattanakosin Island, the old quarter of Bangkok. More than 100 stages and street shows were inspired by history, pop culture, social situations and used traditional forms of puppetry as well as influences of other performing arts such as circus. Many shows brought smiles, laughter and tears, and many were thought-provoking.

    A social disease

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 24/09/2018

    » One of my favourite actors recently left this world prematurely due to frail health caused by chronic excessive drinking. It is sad, because Warut Woratham, once the country's No.1 heartthrob, had managed to quit drinking and opted for a healthy lifestyle a few years prior to his death, but the alcohol-related damage to his health had been done. Warut was just 49 when he died.

    Stressed? You're having a laugh

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 25/08/2015

    » A few months ago, I read a funny post on Facebook about laughing on social media in different languages. Thais prefer "55555" while the Japanese type "www", which is derived from the word "warai". Korean people write "kkkkk", the Spanish "jajaja" and the Portuguese "huehuehue" or "rsrsrsrs". For people in Denmark and Iceland, they use "ha ha, hi hi, hae hae, ho ho, ti hi" while Russians use "haha xaxa, hihi xnxn, hehe xexe" and it is "xa xa xa" in Hebrew. Interestingly, French people laugh "hahaha, héhéhé, hihihi, hohoho" or "MDR" (mort de rire) meaning "dying of laughter".

    Spinning around

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 07/03/2013

    » The looms and spinning wheels are a bit battered and worn, betraying the use they have been put to over the years. But they have clearly been well loved, since they are functional and are still being used to produce fine fabrics today.

    Cancer Etiquette Needed?

    Muse, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 27/11/2010

    » As a daughter of a cancer patient, I have experienced times of sorrow, anxiety and stress starting from the day my mother was diagnosed with cancer and throughout her two years of medical treatment. Among the hardest things for cancer patients and their relatives to cope with are questions and opinions from people around them. In some cases, words of sympathy can hurt their feelings.
