    Beauty of the number nine

    Life, Published on 06/10/2017

    » There is no denying that water is life. Without water, there can be no lush forests, ample farms and swimming fish. As it is a crucial resource for the well-being of all aspects of life, the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej was long devoted to the development of water management plans to ensure the livelihood of his subjects across the country. In memory of the king's achievements in developing and improving water resources, Jubilee Diamond is proud to launch "The Turbine Of Life" -- an exclusive collection of brooches that artfully symbolise some of his most enduring projects, which are still running today.

    It's an organic party at Patom

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 06/10/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> Off the main street of Thong Lor (down Thong Lor 25 if you're coming from the BTS) is what can only be described as a jaw-dropping, high-ceilinged glass house and oasis with a garden. Patom, which in Thai means beginning, also recalls the area of Nakhon Pathom from which all its organic produce and raw materials come from. The family behind the renowned tourist destination of Sampran Riverside (more often known as The Rose Garden) bought the land alongside the Tha Chin River some 53 years ago and across from that property lies Patom's organic farm which is certified in accordance with IFOAM, EU and Canadian standards. Here, fruits herbs and vegetables are grown. Patom also gets its organic produce from other local farmers in Nakhon Pathom that are supported by BLISS, a foundation set up by Patom's founders. Alongside fresh organic produce and lunch boxes prepared daily, one can also head to the store to stock up on cold-pressed juices, drink hand-picked Chiang Dao coffee while sitting outside in the serene back garden and purchase a number of different natural body care and skin products. All products are either 100% organic or made using natural and local ingredients, with as much of the components being as organic as possible (from 30% upwards).
