    Bangkok songkran agendas

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/04/2013

    » OMB! We have five days off in a row because the cabinet kindly declared that this year's "official" Songkran break starts from today until Tuesday. Say what you will about PM Poo, but she is so right in giving us a long holiday since we can't function properly during this kind of heat anyway. Anyhoo, that's over 7,000 minutes we're supposed to wisely spend relaxing before going back to the grind on Wednesday. And even though some shops and places in Bangkok may be shut during the Thai New Year, there are plenty more options for celebrating. Here's what we suggest you do and, hopefully, you may also find a deeper meaning of Songkran Festival (besides throwing water at strangers) along the way. Happy splashing, everyone.

    To markets, To (Indie) markets

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/09/2014

    » You would think Bangkokians have their shopping needs fulfilled to the brim already, given the ever-growing number of malls out there. To the contrary, there are many more special marketplaces that are popping up around the capital to offer different vibes and goodies. This weekend alone there will be two niche markets – Million Bike Market for bicyclists and Pet Design Fair for dog and cat people. We have decided to help you diversify your shopping experience with our pick of indie markets. We can’t be held responsible if you run out of cash before the end of the month, though.

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 26/06/2014

    » Haven’t we all used Facebook to complain about something we see as wrong at some stage? There are some Facebook pages created and dedicated to raising awareness on improper behaviour in public places that you may not be aware of. Check them out in case you want to share your frustration, see what not to do so you won’t end up on one of these pages, or at least get a laugh out of them.

    Recapping 2013

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 27/12/2013

    » New Year’s is time to look back at what has happened during the year that is about to pass. The media usually takes this opportunity to do a round-up of memorable moments. As an esteemed publication ourselves, we decided to do our very own recapping of 2013 (and because we’re too lazy to go out and find new stories). The year hasn’t been a thoroughly smooth ride but we were certainly never bored. Bye-bye, 2013!

    Road rules

    Guru, Published on 01/11/2013

    » If you think you’ve had it with Bangkok traffic, it seems various authorities have finally gotten off their asses and decided to do something about it. They recently put forth some stringent proposals intended to curb the ever-worsening road congestion in the capital. This week we explore the current (and possibly future) state of the roads and practices you should be aware of in the hope that one day (perhaps in this lifetime) we can be safe on the streets and actually go on that planned road trip (if the cars ever move out of the way, that is).

    A dying breed

    Life, L. Bruce Kekulé, Published on 31/07/2013

    » Of all the mammals in Thailand, the wild elephant is probably the most important indicator species of a disappearing wilderness. A century ago, there were more than a 100,000 elephants found in the country when 75% of the Kingdom was still covered by forest. Just north and east of Bangkok, these huge mammals thrived in the marshlands and forests near the city.
