    Life, Usnisa Sukhsvasti, Published on 13/10/2014

    » Last week's Bangkok Post Forum, titled "Economic Reform: How Will It Be Achieved", provided me with a rare opportunity to get together with some old friends over dinner. And although the gathering was made up mostly of business people who are interested in what direction Thailand is heading in the next year or so, and how our tax reforms and drought solutions and public transport expansions are going to be implemented, my attention was directed at a certain member of academia who for me encompasses all that is admirable about womanhood.

    » Sometimes people like to post old print ads on Facebook, or sometimes compile a whole lot and share them with friends by email. They are often quite humorous, especially if you are old enough to remember what they are talking about. Recently I saw one that must have been from the 1950s.

    » Since being release from house arrest, Aung San Suu Kyi has been on the road big time, making up for all the years she was confined to a few hundred square metres. The world is her oyster. She's accepted her Nobel Prize, her Oxford degree, and been presented with the key to Paris.
