    » On Dec 25 last year, the entire nation cheered on Artiwara "Toon" Kongmalai as he crossed the finish line in Mae Sai, the northernmost district of the country. It was the completion of his much-celebrated, and much-debated, 55-day charity run to raise funds for 11 public hospitals. The "Kao Kon La Kao" project covered a distance of 2,215km, starting from the country's southern tip in Betong, Yala, and arriving up north in Mae Sai, Chiang Rai. Over 1 billion baht was raised from the run.

    » On a black Velcro board, a pair of small hands gently glided along its slightly thorny surface. In her right hand, a girl held a plastic "tool" that mimics a large pencil. When she dragged it along the Velcro surface, a thread of yarn came out from its tip — sticking on the board and forming into different shapes. Her fingers carefully felt each line that she drew.

    » The Thai LGBTI scene begins 2017 with news that the much-anticipated Bangkok Pride has now been postponed to the end of the year. Originally set for May, the country's first pride parade in 11 years has been pushed back out of respect for King Bhumibol's one-year mourning period. The wait goes on, unfortunately. So for now, we occupy ourselves with the daily mishaps and surprises happening around the world.

    » Kanyanan Jittreenit performs traditional Thai dance for a living. It's a relatively safe job, unless you perform at the Erawan Shrine. Though rare, there are a few occupational hazards for <i>nang ram</i> -- female dancers -- at this world-famous, four-faced Lord Brahma shrine on the corner of Ratchaprasong intersection, a site of many political demonstrations and, most recently, a bomb attack.

    Sweet somethings

    » 'To you and your sweet tooth." There is no better introduction for a book such as Sweet — a Food Network Magazine compilation of all things sugary and chocolatey that can make anyone drool (and possibly end up in a dentist's chair). The book provides a long list of diverse recipes guaranteed to be "triple-tested" and "foolproof". It promises easy-to-follow instructions, seemingly ready to turn its readers into gourmet dessert chefs.

    » Thai teen series <i>Hormones</i> became known last season for showing the provocative, daring and unexpected. It is a show with guts that breaks the conservative tradition of most Thai TV shows. Now in its second season, barriers have once again been broken in almost every episode. Nothing remains fresher in my memory, however, than the fourth episode of the season, titled after the female lead characters of <i>Dao and Koi</i>.

    Waiting for justice

    » Making headlines this month is yet another scandal about the rich and powerful with their hands caught in a cookie jar. No, this is not the 26th watch — or would that be the 100th? — in Deputy PM Prawit Wongsuwon’s I-borrow-them-from-my-dead-friends saga. Nor is it the 300 million-baht loan to ex-police chief Somyot Poompunmuang. This time, a man has been caught with his fingerprints on a rifle, sitting in a forest next to protected wildlife carcasses.
