    The virtuous one

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 14/04/2017

    » Liam Cunningham is quite a funny bunny -- a stark opposite of the character he is best known for portraying: Game Of Thrones' dependably virtuous knight, Ser Davos Seaworth. While in Bangkok earlier this month, he unflinchingly munched the head off fried insects at the street stall and gleefully admitted to nicking tiny props from the set every year, be it the small wooden stag or coins from Braavos. He asks the props man first of course, and most of it ends up on his daughter's "wall of awesome" in her bedroom.

    » Phakdi "Try" Santaweesuk avoids the press like the plague. We didn't have to throw an ear-splitting fit on the floor the way his comic characters tend to, but it did take much pestering and badgering before the cartoonist for Ai Tua Lek -- which stars the nation's most popular mischief-maker, Pangpond -- agreed to come out of hiding.

    Robbing from the rich, but giving to whom?

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/09/2014

    » Life has meaning again, now that Downton Abbey has returned to our TV screens, its fifth season beginning last Sunday. Its otherworldly visuals continue to draw me in, with the upstairs goings-on of the aristocrats and the downstairs drama among the servants still as captivating as ever. I actually have to remind myself every time I watch an episode that people from another continent in this world of ours actually lived like this less than 100 years ago: that cooks had to dine separately from the rest of the servants in a stately home; that members of the upper class changed clothes as often as five times a day; that it was inconceivable that a proper lady or gentleman would have to perform actual work to earn a living.

    With abundance comes indifference

    » When you come from a third-world country but grew up in the West, or any other country "better off" than your own, far too long for your own good, the comparing game begins. Sometimes, it brings about a seed of discontentment with your current existence, although most of the time it's just a lot of whining. There is clearly lots to moan and gripe about in Thailand, to the point I sometimes find Kuwait more attractive by comparison.

    Beyond the call of duty

    Forever Running Alone

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 30/01/2013

    » Temple Run 2 is here! Developed and released by Imangi, fans of the Indiana Jones-esque game who have gotten tired of running around in the same old primeval, deserted temple can now run on another ancient structure... but on a mountain above the clouds. Visually speaking, it's more exciting as there are a whole lot of new things to surprise you at every corner, whether it is a waterfall, spinning spiky traps, a river, fire, stone ruins or string bridges to jump over or duck under.
