    » In 2005, a podcast was launched by Apple, which announced it grandly as the future of radio. As usual, it takes longer for any future trend to take shape in Thailand, and now it seems podcasts are enjoying a surge here.

    Fighting, any which way

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 24/05/2016

    » The fighting arena was packed. Roars of excitement from fans of Mixed Martial Arts were heard all over the place. At the Singapore Indoor Stadium where the recent One Championship Ascent to Power competition was about to kick off, the atmosphere was abuzz with the enthusiastic voice of the host followed by the screening of short videos introducing fighters. Then two brave men entered the ring and the battle began.

    A bumpy ride

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 26/12/2016

    » A benchmark of a developed city is when everyone, and not just the poor, take public transport. Bangkok still has a lot to do even though 2016 has seen several developments in the continual effort to improve our public transport. We have new GPS in buses and sparkling new canal boats and trains. Meanwhile, a trial run of water transportation in Klong Padung Krung Kasem has been launched.

    Happy 100th birthday Hua Lamphong

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 20/06/2016

    » Standing as a faded landmark of the capital, Hua Lamphong will turn 100 this Saturday. Over the century since it opened in 1916, Bangkok's central station has become more than its original function as a hub for commuters and trains. Hua Lamphong has become an architectural treasure, the arrivals lounge for workers who've come to try their luck in the city, a living museum of Thai life, a grand old building of hope, dream, loss and now, of change.

    Sustaining safety

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 18/04/2016

    » The past week was a long Thai New Year holiday supposed to be good for many industries, but due to the economic downturn, there was no guarantee that they would benefit from this glorious tradition. However, there is one business -- the coffin business -- that has not been harmed by the country's economic situation.

    New trains -- but at what cost?

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 25/01/2016

    » After 16 years of electric trains in Bangkok, it has been proven that travelling in this busy city by this mode of transportation is very useful. You can estimate your own departure and arrival times without having to worry about whether or not you will miss your appointment. But that's only if you're on the BTS or MRT trains, which obviously cover only some areas of the capital.

    The taxing issue of eco-friendly cars

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 16/12/2015

    » Many people expect the upcoming new year to mark a new beginning but apparently 2016 will not be a good time for those who want to buy a new car as the new excise tax structure will be implemented, starting from Jan 1. The new vehicle excise tax will be based on carbon dioxide emissions, E85-gasohol compatibility and fuel efficiency which means only those who go for eco-friendly cars will not be affected by higher taxes.

    Beating the Bangkok traffic

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 16/10/2015

    » Being on the road for an average of two hours a day has never been pleasant but that's what many people in Bangkok, including myself, have to face on a daily basis. Thanks to the motorways, the duration of time we spend on the road has slightly decreased, but there is no guarantee that tollway traffic is always better.

    The Green Bike Club

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 09/06/2015

    » There have always been attempts to make Bangkok a bicycle-friendly city. Despite continuous reports of biking accidents, as well as the lack of cycling infrastructure such as bike lanes, both cyclists and non-cyclists alike have campaigned more heavily in recent years to promote cycling as an urban culture.
