    To catch a Thai thief

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 18/01/2013

    » We often think the Thai police force suck at their job (but are productive when it comes to gimmicky initiatives such as Ja Choey 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0), but we guess sometimes it doesn't matter because criminals aren't such smart cookies themselves. (That's probably why they chose a life of crime in the first place.) To give police some slack, we've found incidents that show how hilariously some stupid criminals got nabbed by the authorities for your entertainment. Don't do illegal things and/or be this stupid, kids.

    Rising rental fees could cause premier plant expo to wither

    Brunch, Normita Thongtham, Published on 20/01/2013

    » The annual agricultural fair at Kasetsart University's Bang Khen campus is coming up this Feb 1-9, and if you are looking for improved varieties of fruit trees to plant, you are likely to find them there. Last year's offerings included edible fig and Indian gooseberry, or emblic, with fruit as big as your big toe instead of your thumb. There were also mangoes that weighed one kilogramme or more each, jackfruit with red flesh instead of the traditional golden yellow or yellow orange, sapodilla with fruit the size of Vietnamese guava, marian plum or maprang with fruit the size of a hen's egg, dwarf coconuts that bear 30 to 50 fruit per bunch, bananas with metre-long bunches of fruit with hands bearing up to 21 fingers instead of the usual 12 to 14, limes with fruit as big as golf balls, and many others. Either the actual fruit or photos of them were shown, so that buyers would have an idea of what to expect from the trees.

    The plight of the Forest Patrol Ranger

    Life, L. Bruce Kekulé, Published on 26/09/2012

    » Nit packed his bag and said goodbye to his wife and two daughters. It would be the last time he saw his family. He jumped on his new motorcycle and left the village heading to the national park headquarters, some 30km away. On the way, he made a quick stop at the market to buy some rice and food for a week's trip into the forest. His salary was about $150 a month, and he wondered how the family was going to make ends meet.

    This wild kingdom just got a little less kind

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 10/06/2012

    » What a morning. I have returned from a morning jog where I was nearly bitten by a very disturbed stray dog. I write this from beautiful Kanchanaburi province, west of Bangkok on the border of Myanmar. I'm staying at a resort next to the famous Bridge on the River Kwai.

    Brunch, Published on 15/04/2012
