    Say What ?

    Guru, Kangsadarn Suksomstarn, Published on 16/03/2012

    » With PM Yingluck recently giving a speech in Japan entitled "Unbeatable Thailand, Unparalleled Opportunities" you can't help but sigh at yet another over-the-top use of an adjective to describe "Amazing Thailand". It's about time we stopped using cliched hyperbole to describe the Land of Smiles (whoops). Unfortunately they are not the only ones spurting verbal diarrhoea. It seems our lives are inundated with words and phrases that we need to know how to deal with. But, don't fret, as once again we're on hand to help out.

    I <3 Bangkok

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 09/03/2018

    » Ah, Bangkok -- the city where road laws are more like suggestions than laws, where the traffic is horrible, the air is polluted, where that Rolex you bought stops working the next day and where a "ping pong show" isn't a game of table tennis. There are many weird and sometimes downright horrifying things we experience living in Bangkok, like being stuck in a taxi with a perverted driver. But despite the many, many things we complain about, Bloomberg's Misery Index (which is a thing, you can Google it) has named Thailand "the least miserable country". In light of that, we've compiled a few reasons why we love living in Bangkok (we are aware we're focusing on Bangkok and not Thailand. We see you rushing to troll us, haters) to remind you to look at the brighter side and forget the fact that the elections are postponed again... Oops.

    Lesser known celebrations

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 22/09/2017

This is the first time Thailand is going to be celebrating it to commemorate 100 years since King Rama VI declared the design we know today as the country's official flag. Sure, it might not be a legit holiday, but hey, it's all about being patriotic.
