    Cinema scope

    Life, Published on 12/07/2016

    » Decades have passed since the residents of Bang Rak have been able to count a proper cinema in their vicinity. The tight-knit neighbourhood -- sited near the river and the financial downtown of Silom -- is known for its kaleidoscopic mix of architecture, mom-and-pop businesses and narrow streets, and the district was once home to several stand-alone cinemas all within walking distance of each other. Over the years, those cinemas went out of business as Bangkok expanded to the north and east, and disinvestment gradually drained the old-fashioned district of some vitality.

    Tom yam steps up to the plate

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 19/06/2016

    » In a Thai meal where some of the dishes on the table are served "dry" (without broth or a liquid sauce) -- fish or shrimp fried with paper and garlic, for example, or beansprouts stir-fried with tofu -- a soup with a spicy bite is needed to provide a satisfying balance of flavours. A tom yam is exactly right, and is often the first choice.

    The shape-shifting form of protests

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 06/10/2015

    » The streets remained empty and all was quiet when thousands of people gathered last Wednesday night to protest against the government's Single Gateway proposal. Protesters weren't, however, down at major landmarks like Asoke or Ratchaprasong intersections, but simply in front of their computer screens. By merely punching the refresh button, these protesters let their resentment known to the authorities by crashing at least six government sites, including the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology.

    Flowers of flame

    B Magazine, Normita Thongtham, Published on 10/04/2016

    » The Tabebuia rosea, or chompoo panthip, on Kasetsart University's Kamphaeng Saen campus in Nakhon Pathom province caused a traffic jam as it attracted people from far and near last February. The trees were planted on both sides of the road and when they dropped all their leaves, only to be blanketed by flowers all at the same time, they were a sight to behold.

    Three's a charm

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 08/09/2016

    » One of the most anticipated fashion gatherings of the year is about to be smaller than ever. This year, Fashion Fieldtrip, which features shows by Bangkok's cultishly followed brands, including Asava, Issue and Vickteerut, will be welcoming only 150 spectators. This is a stark difference to the guest list that reached four digits in the past. Whether Fashion Fieldtrip is returning to its roots or is just finding an excuse to downsize in the face of an economic downturn has yet to be seen with how well the shows turn out on Sept 17 at Bangkok City City Gallery. Still, with this relatively new space at Sathon playing host to a handful of highly buzzed and hot exhibitions and events in the past few months, it is in good taste that the three founders of the club decided to hold their fashion/art exhibition inside this popular white box.

    Full circle after 24 years

    B Magazine, Andrew Biggs, Published on 28/08/2016

    » Greetings from Nakhon Pathom. This week your favourite columnist finds himself in a hotel room for five days in this little town just west of Bangkok. "Little town" is hardly a good description, though it was certainly that way when I first visited here a quarter of a century ago. Bangkok has since extended her tentacles, swallowing up the likes of Samut Prakan, Nonthaburi and Minburi.
