    Must love dogs

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 19/10/2018

    » The Bodhi Dog Rescue and Shelter in Phuket has been rescuing and treating dogs (and other animals, too) who have been mistreated, shunned and abandoned for six years. Running solely on donations, they've encountered heartbreaking circumstances, which makes us question if we really do treat dogs as "man's best friend". On the other hand, they've also had successful stories like that of a pup named Nor. On their sixth anniversary of Bodhi Dog Rescue and Shelter GURU caught up with Tina Maria, founder and owner.

    » To say that Thailand has been getting global recognition lately may be a bit of an understatement. After all, it's not a secret that it's a famous tourist destination with plenty of beautiful beaches and street food that's been topping lists for years now. Of course, these are only just a few things Thailand is well-known for but we don't really have the time to get into all of that (*cough* rigged election *cough*). However, people from the outside may have a narrow view of what Thailand and its culture really is, but fortunately, there are things that help put a spotlight on these things. The next instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise is filming right now in parts of Thailand, including Krabi where its governor stated that the film would be a "great advertisement for the nature, culture and history of the kingdom".

While the film will most likely be more about cars zoom-zooming and vroom-vrooming, there are a number of shows on TV that give a better focus on Thai culture. Here are a few.
