    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 09/12/2016

    » 2016 has been full of ups and downs, highs and lows. It has, without a doubt, been an interesting year to say the least. So we can't help but wonder what 2017 has in store for us.

    Buddhist signs point wrong way

    B Magazine, Andrew Biggs, Published on 12/02/2017

    » The billboard rises, like a Buddhist temple, up ahead on the right-hand side of the airport highway. "BUDDHA IS NOT FOR DECORATION," it shouts at me alongside a decoration of a Buddha's head with an ugly red cross on top of it.
