    Bangkok songkran agendas

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/04/2013

    » OMB! We have five days off in a row because the cabinet kindly declared that this year's "official" Songkran break starts from today until Tuesday. Say what you will about PM Poo, but she is so right in giving us a long holiday since we can't function properly during this kind of heat anyway. Anyhoo, that's over 7,000 minutes we're supposed to wisely spend relaxing before going back to the grind on Wednesday. And even though some shops and places in Bangkok may be shut during the Thai New Year, there are plenty more options for celebrating. Here's what we suggest you do and, hopefully, you may also find a deeper meaning of Songkran Festival (besides throwing water at strangers) along the way. Happy splashing, everyone.

    A traditional legacy

    Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 15/07/2014

    » Seventy-three years is close to the average lifespan for men in many parts of the world. But for Chaophraya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital in Prachin Buri, which marks its 73rd anniversary this year, this is just a drop in the bucket, the tranche of time it has taken for the first step in what may be a lengthy journey: its mission to revive traditional Thai herbal medicine in a society which has long cast off what were considered outmoded ways in favour of the Western approach to healthcare.

    Change-makers

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 25/04/2014

    » Recently the BTS launched a campaign to encourage Thais to start using escalators properly. Y’know, walk on the left side or stay on the right if you want to stand still. While we’re at it, we think they should discourage people from hugging the centre poles between their buttocks unless they’re strippers (go to fb.com/ohmysat to see what we’re talking about).

    Splish splash

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 11/04/2014

    » There was a fuss made recently over a report that a company planned to organise Songkran celebrations in Singapore. Like a motorcycle taxi’s seat pre-heated by the April midday sun, this prompted some Thais to be extra protective of what they considered exclusive to Thailand. However, we need not worry about anyone copying our Songkran since we have many elements that are so inimitable that no other country would be able to (or want to) recreate them. In honour of the upcoming Thai New Year, we present you with all the things that make Songkran uniquely Thai.

    Recapping 2013

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 27/12/2013

    » New Year’s is time to look back at what has happened during the year that is about to pass. The media usually takes this opportunity to do a round-up of memorable moments. As an esteemed publication ourselves, we decided to do our very own recapping of 2013 (and because we’re too lazy to go out and find new stories). The year hasn’t been a thoroughly smooth ride but we were certainly never bored. Bye-bye, 2013!
