    Tourists reflect on BKK bombing

    Life, Published on 15/09/2015

    » Thursday marks one month since the Erawan Shrine bombing which killed 20 people and injured 130 in Bangkok. While the investigation is still under way, it is evident that the impact of the attack on the country's tourism has been huge. The blast, plus a second explosion at Sathon pier, led 35 countries to warn their citizens about trips to Thailand. According to the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, 64.3 billion baht has been lost in tourism revenue from 1.3 million people who cancelled their trip to the country.

    Life, Suwitcha Chaiyong, Published on 14/05/2019

    » Bangkok's buses are known to offer a Fast And Furious kind of ride. Years ago, the No.8 was voted worst in the city in the Transport Ministry's Facebook survey, due to the horrible experience. Despite a sudden change in driver and conductor behaviour after the survey was released, many public buses are still notorious for their impolite and inefficient services, as well as poor facilities, among many other things.

    The Art of Growing Old

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 03/02/2019

    » "Attending an unplanned party/ Never ready, didn't really wanna come/ Saying 'hello' to acquaintances/ Gotta be careful not to smile too much/ It just wouldn't be appropriate," without knowing the track's title, the opening verse of The Charapaabs' debut single, Sala Kon Sao (Funeral Party), reads like something of a typical introvert's diary. As the second verse arrives, it becomes clear that the aforementioned "party" is actually a funeral where "the host refrains from making an appearance" (worth noting a clever wordplay here -- ook long, literally "out of coffin", is used instead of ook rong, which is a Thai expression meaning to make an appearance).
