    » From the very opening minutes of the film, it is made abundantly clear that Deadpool -- a character in the latest among Marvel's long slate of upcoming superhero films -- is not like any other superhero. While most other superheroes would be wracked with guilt from killing even a bad guy, Deadpool maims, beheads, dismembers and even disembowels them with joy, sprouting jokes without skipping a beat. He's weird, crass, violent and even downright sadistic in all the best ways, and that is exactly why he is such a joy to see in action, even if the film around him is only average at best.

Subin's story made waves on social media late last year when a photo of him was posted by one of his sympathetic passengers, accompanied by his story of rejection from various jobs and passengers due to his disfigured face, the result of a childhood accident when he was five years old. This attention has earned him the support of various organisations, most recently GrabTaxi, which late last year approached Subin to recruit him as a driver.

    Treasuring the humble tuk-tuk

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 28/12/2015

    » The three-wheeled tuk-tuk, along with temples, elephants and tom yum goong, is a top symbol of Thailand. Recognising the significance of this small, boxy vehicle to the country's cultural legacy, Thailand's contestant for the Miss Universe 2015 pageant -- 21-year-old Aniporn "Nat" Chalermburanawong -- took to the stage in Las Vegas last week wearing a tuk-tuk costume, a mix of experimental Thainess and extraterrestrial thingumajig. The dress, designed by Hirankrit Pattaraboriboonkul, won her the Best National Costume award from the international competition (see side story).
