    It's fun but we deserve more

    » There are many things to like about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. For one, it's definitely a true-blood Star Wars film, bringing with it all the spectacle and grandeur the franchise has always been known for.

    » 1 In celebration of the Thai New Year, W Bangkok is holding Songkran Splash Away Pool Party on April 13. Held in collaboration with local party collective Kolour, the event will also feature a host of DJs both local and international, who will be laying down the party beats. Tickets cost 900 baht, but early-birds can pick them up for a discounted 700 baht. Arrive before 3pm and you'll even get two complimentary drinks with your tickets. Considering the country's current water-shortage problems, a pool party is probably the most responsible way to get yourselves doused this Songkran anyway.

    » Recently, a friend of mine visited a temple to pay respects to his long-departed mother. As is the tradition with these yearly visits, he and his father sat down for lunch with a group of monks to discuss current events and religious teachings. The last thing he expected was to be talking about how Thai Buddhism is under siege by the fast-growing Muslim population, and how steps need to be taken to contain them.
