    In the name of love

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 10/02/2012

    » Love is indeed a strange and powerful force. It can make us do crazy things like stare at the phone willing our darling to call for the fifth time of the day. It can make us spend a year's salary impressing our khun noo girlfriend with an LV bag despite an unwavering credit card debt. It can drive us to hide in the bushes behind the object of our affection's house, going through their trash in the hope of finding a lock of their hair to use in a love spell.

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 19/10/2012

    » We're increasingly sure that becoming an adult in Thailand doesn't require passing any tests in common sense. The number of grown-ups we've seen come up with a plan to achieve something through flabbergasting means is more flabbergasting itself (doubling the flabbage factor).

(If nothing else, they should make you feel good about your plan to get off work by rubbing your face with a sick kid, or something equally silly).

    8 online shows you need to watch

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 31/05/2013

    » Have you become tired of the cliches on mainstream Thai TV? We sure have. These days we struggle to get through a single lakorn episode because the main characters unrealistically have perfect make-up and hair while sleeping (or even while in jail). Don't get us started on the oversupply of singing contests (which seems to act like a factory churning out performers).

    Not the news

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 24/01/2014

    » We think we aren’t the only ones who have been glued to our smartphone screens of late, following updates regarding #BangkokShutdown on Twitter and whatnot. Amid the cascade of information and misinformation, one item caught our attention, like a crystal-encrusted golden whistle under the midday light. It was an item about nightlife giant Ku De Ta closing its doors after a series of “bad circumstances” over the past few months that were bad for business with the shutdown being the last straw.
