It didn’t take long before she was noticed by the bigwigs at GMM Grammy, the country’s biggest record label and the force behind some of the most successful local artists including Thongchai “Bird” McIntyre and Christina Aguilar.

    The imaginarium of pandanus

    B Magazine, Normita Thongtham, Published on 16/03/2014

    » Pandanus tectorius, commonly known as screw pine or beach pandan (toey talay in Thai), has become the iconic symbol of Kamala Beach in Kathu district, western Phuket. Lining the beach alongside casuarina trees, their strong prop roots have held the sand in place and kept erosion at bay since Kamala was established as a popular beach resort in the 1970s. The tree also enjoyed pride of place in the beautifully landscaped garden of an exclusive condominium on the beachfront, until the property owners decided that its roots had become too ugly and obtrusive, and had it removed. Now they are in a dilemma over what to replace it with.

    Spectrum, Chiratas Nivatpumin, Published on 16/03/2014

In the World Economic Forum’s latest competitiveness report, corruption is ranked far and away as the number one problem facing businesses.

    The disappearance of the love shacks

    Spectrum, Published on 16/03/2014

    » It’s nearing sunset on a Friday evening in the dry season, and in the village of Tang Kamal in Ratanakiri women gather by the well to bathe and collect water. Cooling off from a long day of farming, they try to avoid tripping over the pigs, dogs and chickens that clamour around their feet. When the sun sets, many of these women will sleep with their families in their homes. But some of the teenage girls will be an exception. It is a tradition in the Kreung minority, scattered in 27 villages around Ratanakiri’s Ochum district, to build girls their own private huts when they hit puberty. The idea of these huts, or “girls’ houses”, as they are referred to by the communities themselves, is that girls can have the space and opportunity to invite boys over, get to know them, and have sex with them if they want to.
