    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 09/05/2014

    » Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers will invade Bangkok this weekend! And no, we’re not saying that as a side effect of the Star Wars marathon we went on to celebrate Star Wars Day (May 4) or the announcement of the Star Wars: Episode VII cast. It’s because Thailand Comic Con 2014 is taking place from today until Sunday (May 9-11) at Siam Paragon and the arch-villain and his soldiers will make an appearance there. This week, to help you embrace your inner geek (we all have one — don’t be in denial), we present what you can expect from the pop culture event along with other ways to geek out in Bangkok.

    » Thais are sanook people. We like to have fun and don’t take things too seriously.

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 27/12/2013

    » New Year’s is time to look back at what has happened during the year that is about to pass. The media usually takes this opportunity to do a round-up of memorable moments. As an esteemed publication ourselves, we decided to do our very own recapping of 2013 (and because we’re too lazy to go out and find new stories). The year hasn’t been a thoroughly smooth ride but we were certainly never bored. Bye-bye, 2013!

    Ghost off

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 25/10/2013

    » This year’s Halloween falls on Thursday (Oct 31), and we have already been celebrating by sending LINE Halloween stickers to friends for weeks now. Such antics have gotten us thinking about certain scary beings that have become synonymous with the day. For our own entertainment (and hopefully yours too), we compare six well-known Thai ghosts based on six criteria to find the ultimate mascot for Thai Halloween. Use our picks to inspire your costume, or just continue to be amused by the local fascination with spirits.
