    #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.

    #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!

    Not all entertainment is for everyone

    Life, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 25/04/2013

    » This month, Thailand's movie industry witnessed a historic record, with Pee Mak Phra Khanong raking in more than 500 million baht within a few weeks. As a Thai, I feel proud that a Thai movie can be so successful, more successful than most foreign movies have been.

    Nothing to fear but traffic police

    Life, Napamon Roongwitoo, Published on 26/04/2012

    » The death toll during the Songkran holidays this year was 320, with 3,320 reported injuries. I've seen these numbers for decades, but it wasn't until this year that I had a close encounter with an accident that put an eye-opening spin on these statistics. They are not just numbers. They are people with faces. In fact, I have seen two of those 3,320 unfortunate people.
