    Let's get geeky

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 20/04/2018

    » Whether you like it or not, geek is in. That's obvious from the plethora of superhero movies reigning at the box office and the TV series we follow and binge faithfully. And Bangkok isn't an exception. Geekiness is alive and well here in the Big Mango.

Aside from that, Bangkok is going to show off its geek pride with a couple of events in the city. So ignite your lightsabers, produce 1.21 gigawatts, step into the Tardis, have your wands at the ready and sit in your captain's chair.

    Igniting the flame of royal affection

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 26/10/2017

    » Throughout his 70-year reign, King Bhumibol Adulyadej travelled to countless places in the Kingdom, near and far, to listen to and relieve Thai people's problems. Not many people know his first visit to his subjects took place in Ban Pong district, Ratchaburi province, in 1954 after a big fire had ravaged the local market.
