    Samsung air conditioners win consumers' hearts with innovations, after-sales and privileged services

    Published on 16/09/2016

    » The estimated value of the air conditioner market in Thailand exceeds 27 billion baht annually and the competitiveness level keeps increasing every year. The hot weather during summertime helps drive sales volume. Innovations and energy-saver features are noted as selling points of all brands. Yet repeat orders and consumers' positive word-of-mouth only result from all-round superiority, including after-sales service. As a leading player in the air conditioner segment, Samsung never stops offering better products and services to make sure that all consumers who trust Samsung get the best.

    Holy cheeseus!

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 16/09/2016

    » Do we need an excuse to write about cheese? Not really. Sure, we can justify it with a number of recent events that clearly call for celebration, and what better way to do it than by over indulging on that edible block of gold that always seems to lock our gaze in the outer aisles of Villa Market. The breakup of Hiddleswift? Maybe. Or how about the fact that our Dear Leader wants to standardise Thai food across the globe so that it all tastes the same (yay!). Seriously, who doesn't love a good ol' single-standard-tasting som tum?

    Discovering the many layers of Doi Suthep

    Life, Pattramon Sukprasert, Published on 16/09/2016

    » When mentioning Doi Suthep-Pui, the golden stupa standing elegantly on the mountain is probably one of the first things people recall. Other than that, people might think of it as a sacred mountain -- one of Chiang Mai's must-visit places. Its role as a natural resource and the closest forest to the city has often been overlooked.

    Exploring the delicate bonds of family

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 16/09/2016

    » Thai audiences have a rapport with the films of Hirokazu Kore-eda. Nearly every one of his titles since 2004 has made it to Thai cinemas, some hugely successful, others more modest. With a delicate touch and a strong trope in family drama, the Japanese director has created a fan base here -- and not just among film buffs with a taste for non-Hollywood types.

    The sound of silence

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 16/09/2016

    » As is true of most horror films, it's the silent, creeping moments of uncertainty leading up to the jumps-scares that create the most suspense, as audiences tense up in anticipation, hoping against hope that the main characters be spared any horrendous fate lying around the corner. Don't Breathe, the aptly named sophomore feature from director Fede Alvarez (who also did the 2013 remake of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead), embodies this philosophy to the hilt, taking its audience on a relentless train-ride of white-knuckle tension from start to finish.

    Tears of the common people

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 16/09/2016

    » At 227 minutes -- less than four hours -- Ang Babaeng Humayo (The Woman Who Left) is rather short by Lav Diaz's standard. His previous film, Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis (A Lullaby To The Sorrowful Mystery), runs at seven hours. And throughout the late 1990s and 2000s, the Filipino master made films ranging in length from nine to 13 hours, something unorthodox, anomalous, even transgressive in the fast-food mentality of the modern multiplex. A four-hour film, any distributor would tell you, will scare people off. There's no room for patience and meditation in cinema these days.

    Jack the lad

    » It is common practice that when a popular author passes away, his estate seeks a replacement to step into his shoes. The new man is expected to emulate the original style to the extent possible. If notes have been left for future plots, so much the better.

    A taste of the old country

    Life, Vanniya Sriangura, Published on 16/09/2016

    » Don Giovanni may be named after an Italian opera that premiered centuries ago written by Mozart. The 90-seat restaurant, which is situated on the ground floor of the Centara Grand at CentralPlaza Lardprao, may have existed for almost three decades. Yet there's almost nothing, not even the dining ambiance nor the presentation of dishes, that should be labeled as old-fashioned.
