    Green world rising

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 12/07/2019

    » The Mall Group has begun charging B1 for each plastic bag to coincide with the International Plastic Bag Free Day on Jul 3. Shoppers at The Mall, Emporium, EmQuartier and Siam Paragon are being encouraged to bring their own bags for all their shopping needs. It's a small but significant step towards the city's progress in reducing the use of plastic like many other places in Thailand. Even Central Group has stopped handing out plastic bags to shoppers. Additionally, they will not provide plastic bags on the 1st, 4th and 16th of every month reminding shoppers to bring in their reusable bags.

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 02/03/2018

    » Phanuphon "Black" Bulsuwan, 35, is the chef and owner of Blackitch Artisan Kitchen in Chiang Mai.

His restaurant's unique dining experience caters to only 16 guests per seating, served across two tables. He is also known as the local master of fermentation techniques, knowing about its misconceptions and the benefits it brings to the food ingredients. He has also partaken in many food events, the latest being Mad Face Food Week, which takes place until Sunday, at the Pepsi Pier on Charoen Nakhon Road.
