    #SchoolRules

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 27/05/2016

    » One of the things I hated most about school was lining up in the morning, as one of the teachers went on and on about things that didn't really matter. Or maybe they did -- I wasn't really listening.

    » Here's my theory -- the best way to learn about Thai people's behaviours is to go to Tesco Lotus.

    #FuneralTalk

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 29/01/2016

    » My grandfather passed away when I was eight, and while I can’t remember much about his funeral, I remember thinking all of my aunties looked a bit odd without their usual make-up and hairdos. They told me they weren’t allowed to dress up while mourning.

    #WhatsInAName

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 28/08/2015

    » I recently saw a magazine cover that featured a man who had an extremely strange and long name. I don't even remember the name, what he did or why he was on the cover. All I remember is that his name was really weird. It was the Thai equivalent of "Dsfjosoifandegfio". In other words, it looked like someone had spilled Scrabbles tiles and decided to use the resulting mess as a name.

    #BangkokDriversSyndrome

    Guru, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 10/07/2015

    » I was about a few years short of being able to apply for my driver's license when they announced they would no longer be offering lifelong permits. That means, for the rest of my life, I'm required to visit the Department of Land Transport every five years to renew this little white card that I've never really used — for which I am proud, as it means I've never been flagged down by traffic police!

    Fun with braids and buns

    Muse, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 28/03/2015

    » Most schools in Thailand have strict rules about hair, which is good (because you don’t need to come up with new ideas every day) and bad (because it’s rather boring). Summer vacation is the perfect time to have fun with your little girl’s hair — and maybe you can also get a matching hairdo as well. These five adorable hairdos from Central Kids Runway 2015 will add a fresh twist to a total look.

    The fine line between 'right' and 'self-righteous'

    Life, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 06/02/2015

    » Religion is a sensitive topic and needs to be approached with extra care, so much so that people sometimes avoid talking about it altogether.

    Web of danger

    Life, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 26/01/2015

    » The recently imposed ban on an Instagram account of a child celebrity sparked a debate on issues ranging from child protection and parental egos to online security. Two weeks ago the account of Wanmai, four-year-old sister of a well-known actor, was threatened with shutdown by the social media site. Thousands of her "followers" expressed their disagreement, even anger, with not just the announcement but also Instagram's minimum-age policy.

    Seeing the world in black and white

    Muse, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 03/05/2014

    » Spring/summer collections have always been about vibrant florals and pops of colour, but the trends today have moved away from rules and traditional expectations. We see neon colours in autumn/winter runway shows, and greyscale in spring/summer collections. There are no rules when it comes to colours anymore.

    An all-encompassing view of life

    Life, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 22/04/2014

    » Dhitinart Napattalung wowed her compatriots a decade ago when the story about her struggle to overcome difficulties in life first emerged. In fact, it was more her descriptions of not struggling and yet still managing to retrieve happiness from a horribly chaotic situation that really amazed people.
