    » Standing as tall as his name, Andrew Biggs is arguably one of the most famous farangs in Thailand.

Despite a sudden change in driver and conductor behaviour after the survey was released, many public buses are still notorious for their impolite and inefficient services, as well as poor facilities, among many other things.

    What's in Marie Kondo's closet?

    Life, Published on 04/02/2019

    » The unlikely television hit of this new year is Netflix's Tidying Up With Marie Kondo. With each episode, Kondo, a Japanese consultant and author of international best-sellers on how to reduce clutter, applies her signature "KonMari" process to a different Los Angeles home. The system is simple: keep only the things that "spark joy" in you. Everything else can be tossed. Evidence of Kondo's growing influence can be seen at America's thrift stores, many of which are reporting a surge in donations since the Netflix show debuted last month.

    Gym hacks

    Guru, Mika Apichatsakol, Published on 09/12/2016

    » Sorry (not sorry) fans of loud and colourful activewear, but trendy athletic wear is going back to the basics of moody tones, sharing aesthetics with practical fashion. To be honest, this has been a long time coming as mass fashion and design have been increasingly keen on cutting down frills. I mean just look at the iPhone 7. Who would have thought a few years ago that the sight of an earphone jack or even earphones themselves could be so unfashionable.
