Yet, Beijing is doing its best to remind that democratic world that it has far more to fear from a hegemonic China than from an erratic America.

    » As Thailand celebrates National Children's Day today, I wish to share my recollection of a memorable audience with His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and his profound message and wishes for the children of Thailand and the world.

She becomes a strong-willed woman at a time when women are supposed to be quiet. Prissana's love story with an aristocratic man, set amid the hi-society milieu, has sent audiences swooning over the past 30 years.
