    Here's to a more beautiful Chiang Mai

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 29/10/2018

    » The other evening I had a meetup with friends. As some of us had never been to the izakaya where we planned to meet and thus had no idea where it is situated, the location of the Japanese pub/restaurant was then shared and everybody easily made their way to the meeting place.

    When the president said 'sock it to me'

    News, Roger Crutchley, Published on 04/08/2019

    » My apologies for unwittingly being the purveyor of fake news in last week's column, mistakenly crediting Goldie Hawn with the "sock it to me" catchphrase from the Laugh-In show.

    Update the computer law

    News, Editorial, Published on 18/04/2018

    » If events over the past two weeks do not convince the government to write an actual law covering computer fraud, maybe nothing will. The first unfortunate event was to threaten a Chiang Mai magazine editor with a computer crime charge over something that had nothing to do with computers (or crime, come to that).

    Time to watch out for those pesky ethics

    News, Editorial, Published on 09/10/2016

    » Late last week, Chiang Mai governor Pawin Chamniprasart visited the home of two Hmong girls accused by a British tourist of stealing her wristwatch. Mr Pawin's visit was a gesture to reaffirm the girls' innocence. When Mr Pawin visited, the girls' mother performed a traditional ritual in their house to boost the morale of her daughters after their pictures appeared, late last month, on several international outlets including the New York Post and The Sun with headlines suggesting the girls stole the tourist's watch.
