Do you have all the necessary equipment (sunglasses, phone bag, water gun, yadom, etc.) to start your wet n wild festivities?

    Mind over manners

    Brunch, Michael Ruffles, Published on 23/11/2014

    » From time to time, the Land of Smiles seems like it's anything but. It becomes the land of smirks when you're waiting for change and the motorcycle taxi rider insists he doesn't have enough. It becomes the land of scowls when you suggest to a middle-aged woman with the khunying hairdo that she wait her turn at the 7-Eleven counter. It becomes the land of blank stares when you point out to the smartphone zombies that they shouldn't block the door of the skytrain.

    Bangkok songkran agendas

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/04/2013

    » OMB! We have five days off in a row because the cabinet kindly declared that this year's "official" Songkran break starts from today until Tuesday. Say what you will about PM Poo, but she is so right in giving us a long holiday since we can't function properly during this kind of heat anyway. Anyhoo, that's over 7,000 minutes we're supposed to wisely spend relaxing before going back to the grind on Wednesday. And even though some shops and places in Bangkok may be shut during the Thai New Year, there are plenty more options for celebrating. Here's what we suggest you do and, hopefully, you may also find a deeper meaning of Songkran Festival (besides throwing water at strangers) along the way. Happy splashing, everyone.
