    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 14/04/2014

    » Yesterday marked Thailand’s Day of the Elderly, and if Thai customs have conditioned you just right, one of the most disconcerting sights you could possibly witness is of an elderly person still working. Our mentality that we should always care for our parents in old age makes us shudder at the reality of old folks still toiling away to make ends meet.

    Gambling is no game

    Life, Arusa Pisuthipan, Published on 01/07/2014

    » The World Cup kicked off in Brazil last month, and it’ll end in two weeks. During this period, the lives of frequent gamblers — both online and offline — have become much more difficult. In Thailand alone, almost 1,000 football gamblers in metropolitan areas were arrested between June 12-23. To break this down, about 870 gamblers, 22 hosts, 16 bookmakers and one online gambling organiser were legally charged. More than 700 football gambling websites in Thailand were shutdown, and these numbers are rising.

    Let the shop come to you

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 06/07/2014

    » If you live around Sukhumvit, Yen Akat or Sathon and want to buy bunches of fresh coriander and spring onions and some pla tu, it will cost you about 60 baht. If you decide to buy it at a market far from the middle of town you’ll need at least 200 baht for transport and a spare two hours. But if you live on the outer fringes of the metropolis — Om Noi or Phutthamonton in Nakhon Pathom; Thaa It or Pak Kret in Nonthaburi; or Lam Luk Ka, Lat Lum Kaeo in Pathum Thani — and you want to get hold of the same coriander, spring onions and fish, you’ll have no problems with transport or price.

    » Adventurous palm lovers are in for a wonderful time exploring the jungles of Sarawak in Borneo, Malaysia, the national parks of Darwin, Australia, and possibly the eastern Himalayan foothills of India to see palms in their natural habitat. Also on the agenda are Singapore's Gardens by the Bay and Botanic Gardens, this time to see palms in cultivation. There is only one catch: to be able to join these expeditions and get a chance to brush shoulders with elite plant people, you have to be a member of the International Palm Society (IPS), the largest society of palm enthusiasts in the world.
